BLURB:
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.

REVIEW:

As a big fan of Jennifer Armentrout, I’m always excited to read her books. But this time it was getting away from the supernatural/fantasy world and going into something more realistic like crushes, best friends, and one hot winter vacation.

Frigid follows college student Sydney, who is in love with her childhood best friend Kyler. She kept this to herself for a long time and with Kyler being a ladies man doesn’t make it easier. She doesn’t want to ruin their long time friendship for a one-sided love, but one winter vacation will change everything. Kyler and Sydney are stranded together at his families cabin alone, together they come face to face with truths that they have kept hidden for so long.

Sydney aka Syd, is a smart but extremely innocent twenty-one year old. I so felt bad for this girl pinning over her best friend who always seemed to have a new girl on his lap. I sometimes wished she’d snap out of it and just cut ties. But she is one awesome best friend for caring more about their friendship and hanging in their through the many floozy girls that came and left. Her innocence was so real, sweet and can see why Kyler always felt so protective of her. In the end she does make some mistakes in judgment but I felt it added to her inexperience and cluelessness that it made her lovable.

Kyler is one smoking hot but frustrating man. It’s hard not to love this guy, even with all of his lame decisions he’s such a good guy when it comes to Syd. He protects her to no ends and sometimes his jealousy is out of place, but he knows her best and vise versa. There are so many scenes that I can name where he won me over, but I won’t spoil anything! Let just say this man knows how to make girls melt. In the end I loved his devotion and how much he cherished his long time friendship with Syd, even when mad at each other they got through it.

Overall, I read this story in one sitting, meaning this was darn good. My only flaw was that some bits were predictable and I would have liked a bit of surprises or more challenges, but nonetheless I loved this romance. This story also made me want to go on a ski trip and drink some hot coco with my hubby, which makes this a perfect book to read on a winter trip. I will always be a fan of Armentrout and can’t wait for more new adult from this great writer.

RECOMMENDATION:

This is an adult novel with some sexual content meant for a mature audience. Fans of Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols with love Frigid by Jennifer Armentrout.
