Publisher's Summary

Chicago homicide detective Tyler Jamison has accepted the fact that he was born defective. Women just don't do it for him, and he can't contemplate any other option. So, loneliness it is.

Ian Alexander has met the man of his dreams, but the guy's in complete denial of his sexuality. Ian's not giving up on Tyler, though. Tyler's a domineering, controlling force of nature...just what Ian has always craved in his bed.

When a serial killer sets his sights on Ian, Tyler will do anything to protect the much younger man. For the first time in his life, Tyler has experienced desire, and it's for another man. How much will it take for him to become the man he was meant to be?

Very sweet!

Quickly I'd say there's more telling than showing but I still really enjoyed it. I love the MCs, they are so cute. I hope they'll be more, I loved to see how their relationship develops.

Loved It!

I LOVED IT!!! Somebody to Love is a welcome discovery. I was searching for something new and I am very pleased with this purchase. I love the characters and I really love that this is the first installment so there will be more - hopefully with Tyler and Ian as the MC's still. J.F. Harding and Jack DuPont were wonderful together. I am looking forward to more works by this trio and holding out for that first dinner with Ian's family. ❤❤❤

OUTSTANDING NARRATOR PERFORMANCES

This was a beautiful and emotional story performed by the best of the best of narrators. JF Harding and Jack DuPont completely brought this story alive for me.

I am ready for book 2 of the series, and I truly hope the author intends to use these master performers.

Good story and great narration!!

Really enjoyed this book. I would say this book is more about the MCs than a Murder mystery. Which was fine by me, I enjoyed seeing the two MCs work their way through the relationship. The narrators were amazing. They brought such life to both MCs! I loved it! Excited for the next book!

Loved it!

To me there is nothing better than a gruff alpha who is really a softy. Then add in a murder mystery, add in a closeted/out for you hurt/comfort, add in losing MM V-card and I'm sold. Oh wait there's more? JF Harding and Jack DuPont narrating this book. I was completely sold. I loved everything about this book and I'll be patiently (not) wait for the next book.

Tyler & Ian

This is a great start to a new series by April Wilson. If you are familiar with her McIntyer series you've met Tyler Jamison as Beths brother. If you are not familiar - don't worry - this is a new series and works completely as a stand alone from that one. Tyler is a standoffish detective who struggles with relationships. Ian is a fun loving out and proud man with some issues of his own. When they are thrust together for a case sparks fly and Tyler struggles. This story as some suspense and action, but I loved that the case is resolved just past the half way point of the story and then we get some time on the relationship development. Great series start and can't wait for more of these guys.

Love these narrators, really lked the story

Superb listen. I already knew I could happily listen to J.F. Harding read even the tax code. He's the reason I gave this book a listen. I was pleasantly pleased with Jack Dupont's narration.
This is my first book by this author and I found it enjoyable. Lots of characters got quick introductions which opens the door to lots of opportunity for this series. I imagine they will find themselves in the sort of trouble that the detective lead will help them through while his relationship with Ian develops and matures. I look forward to the next book in this series and agree with another reviewer, please bring this narrating duo back.

Great story, great characters, great narrators

Rarely do you get a book on audible that has amazing writing, great characters and two narrators that bring the story to life. Somebody to love does all those things and more. Hearing a book like this gives hope I can find other audible books that check all my boxes!

Beautiful narration. 💫💫💫

This one is passionate, tugs at your heart and is wonderfully written. J.F. Harding is always a favorite of mine, but both narrators were very good. I really enjoyed this story. You have 2 flawed and very different characters that find one another unexpectedly and how they handle and get thru some of the most real and difficult circumstances was put into powerful words. I had to finish this one in one day.

All the love!

I loved the book and I was waiting for this to come out on audio! And now, I love it even more.

I’m a sucker for detective stories, there’s just something so refreshing about stories where gays can be cops too and a really good one at that. I mean granted that Tyler wasn’t entire self aware. But still.

I enjoyed the mystery aspect but I love the character development even more and along with that, the relationship between two MCs developed too.

The narration was magic. JF Harding paired with Jack DuPont was just perfect.

I want more from these two. But, don’t we all?

Perfect Narration

Book was great. Saying this, the only reason I bought this book was because of JF Harding. I will listen to anything that man narrates. He could read the phone book and keep me totally captivated. Jack Dupont was new to me but I will now keep a lookout for his work as well. That being said I really enjoyed this read and look forward to more from April Wilson.
