SOMEBODY TO LOVE by Lori Wilde: Blog Tour Review & Giveaway

SOMEBODY TO LOVE (Cupid, Texas #3)

by: Lori Wilde

An Adult Contemporary Romance

Release Date:  December 31, 2013


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...

 **You can read Somebody to Love as a stand alone book an enjoy the story without feeling like you are missing anything.  Lori Wilde does a great job making the reader feel right at home in Cupid. You don't NEED to read the other books in the series, but it would probably be a great visit back to Cupid, Texas when you have time.**

Somebody to Love was another sweet addition to the Cupid, Texas series.
 Jericho and Zoey's story was like reading Indiana Jones if Indiana Jones was a romance novel (and based in Texas).  Lori Wilde does a great job of putting characters together that have spark and creating good chemistry (and tension) along with very interesting (and educational) story lines.  In Somebody to Love we get to explore archaeology and a bit of Native America legends, along with revisiting some of the delightful characters in Cupid, Texas.

Zoey and Jericho have been friends for twenty years and just when their timing is (finally) right, a series of events happen that really test their control and their stick-with-it-ness.  The push and pull of these two was very entertaining to read and even though the plot got a bit far fetched at times, it was a fun trip to take.  While this wasn't my favorite book from this series, it still had me entertained and enjoying getting to know Jericho (yum).

Lori Wilde creates a fun, sexy and  a bit mysterious story in Somebody to Love; just when you think you have it all figured out there is another twist or revelation that will keep you turning pages.   If you are a fan of the Cupid, Texas series you will enjoy the cameos of past characters (Lacy for example) and getting to go back to that quirky town in Texas where you never know what will happen next.  I am looking forward to the final installment of this series coming out later in 2014 and would recommend this series if you are looking for an easy, sexy weekend read.
