New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde invites you back to Cupid, Texas, where love is only a heartbeat away . . .
Sexy cowboy-scholar Jericho Chance always knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. And after sauntering back home to Cupid, he’s shocked to discover that he wants Zoe McCleary. After years from home, he takes one new look at his bubbly best friend, with her lightning smarts and luscious body, and it hits him like a bolt: she’s his somebody to love and he’s not leaving town again without her.
Settling down always seemed like a time waster to Zoe, a man magnet with a trail of broken hearts behind her. She’s not meant to settle down—but how can she resist someone as persuasive as Jericho? There’s no way they can ignore the explosive chemistry seething between them . . . even if it means risking their friendship…
Somebody to Love is the third book in the Cupid, Texas series by Lorie Wilde. Jericho Chance is a sexy cowboy turn scholar. He knows what he wants from life and how he is going to get it. The only thing that throws him off is how much he wants his best friend Zoe McCleary. Jericho biggest issue with Zoe is she does not commit to anything.
Zoe McCleary says and does whatever pops into her head. She is still in school because she has changed her major multiple time. She is at a point the guardian in charge of her trust tells her to pick something and stick it through or he is giving all her money away. Zoe comes across as flighty and unreliable. It seems the one thing that no one sees is that Zoe is head over heels in love with Jericho. That is the one thing she sticks too.
The chemistry between Zoe and Jericho is blistering. I loved that they finally acted on their feeling for each other. The sex scenes were steamy. My biggest issue with this book is that everyone including Jericho seem to constantly put Zoe down. While Jericho does, stick up for her he seems to agree with those picking on her. I wonder if any of those ever thought that Zoe unable to commit had something to do with worrying about what everyone around her was saying and constantly trying to please those around her.
I found this book very well written. The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic. I loved that there was a story line beyond just Zoe and Jericho falling in love with each other. While I have not read the other books in the series, this book can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. Overall, this was a great story. I will be picking up the other books in the series shortly.
