For twenty-one-year-old Sydney, being in love with Kyler isn’t anything new. They’d been best friends ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie. Somewhere over the years, she fell for him and fell hard. The big problem with that? Kyler puts the ‘man’ in man-whore. He’s never stayed with a girl longer than a few nights, and with it being their last year in college, Syd doesn’t want to risk their friendship by declaring her love.
Kyler has always put Syd on a pedestal that was too high for him to reach. To him, she’s perfect and she’s everything. But the feelings he has for her, he’s always hidden away or focused on any other female. After all, Kyler will always be the poor boy from the wrong side of tracks, and Syd will always be the one girl he can never have.
But when they’re stranded together at a posh ski resort due to a massive Nor’easter, there’s nothing stopping their red-hot feelings for each other from coming to the surface. Can their friendship survive the attraction? Better yet, can they survive at all? Because as the snow falls, someone is stalking them, and this ski trip may be a life-changer in more ways than one.
Carol’s Review –
I chose Frigid as an early holiday read and it was a perfect choice. This book was so sweet, sexy, sassy and even a little bit suspenseful.
Sydney and Kyler are in their senior year of college and winter break is just starting. These two have been best friends since the early days of elementary school, inseparable. Somewhere along the line, their feelings for each other started to evolve from friendship to something more. But neither of them wanted to jeopardize their friendship by saying anything.
First lets talk about Sydney. She is 21 years old and has had one boyfriend. And that didn’t end well. She could never figure out why Kyler disliked the boy she had dated so much. She has some serious insecurities but of one thing she is certain, she is madly in love with her best friend, Kyler. But she knows that she can never tell him. You see, Kyler just isn’t the commitment sort of guy. He is pretty much a man-whore. Kyler and his body to die for and those cute dimples, can have any girl he wants and he seems to want them all.
Kyler knows he feels much more then just friendship for Sydney. But she is so perfect and she deserves so much more then him. He could never be good enough for her. So he sleeps with every other girl that comes along, trying to fill the void in this heart.
Sydney and Kyler and their group of friends all have plans to go up to Kyler’s family’s ski cabin at a posh ski resort. But the weather has other plans. After Sydney and Kyler arrive, the storm of the century blows in and prevents the others from arriving and keeps Sydney and Kyler trapped in the house together forcing them to finally confront their feelings for each other. The book is written in both their POV’s and its so hilarious at times to hear what is going on in their minds. And when they finally do get together, the heat should have been enough to melt all the snow in the entire ski resort!!!
Not only do these two have to deal with their insecurities, though,it seems someone is trying to deliberately sabotage them. Is someone really trying to hurt them or just to scare them? Will they be able to stay safe until the blizzard passes and they can get help? And what will become of these newly confessed feelings once they are back in the “real world?”
I truly enjoyed watching these two not only try to resolve their feelings for each other but also, with the choices they were faced with there being only one final semester of college left and their adult lives looming ahead. This was my first NON-paranormal book that I have read by Jennifer Armentrout and it most definitely won’t be my last.
