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. (From Goodreads)
This book is all the things I love about Jennifer L. Armentrout. Hot male lead. Sexual tension. And now SNOW! Frigid is a hot novel with a great, suspenseful plot.
Being snowed in at a spectacular and over-the-top ski lodge sounds wonderful (and awfully Canadian of me). So, as far as settings go, I'm digging this one. Let's face it, snow is just magical (in theory, but usually it's just a pain in the ass). Ski lodge goes on the list of settings that I need more of.
And the characters are hot! Sydney is an easy protagonist to read. Kyler is just plain hot and swoon-worthy and all that jazz. Most of the story is just these two, but it still worked. I never got bored of either character. And the romance was hot because OMG is JLA not the queen of sexual tension or what?!
I like the addition of lots of suspense and mystery, although it was a tiny bit predictable. I think that is what set Frigid apart from any other "New Adult" title I have read. We still have the boy-that-gets-around and the girl-that-doesn't-think-the-boy-will-ever-actually-see-her-that-way, but then there is this layer of mystery and dimension. I may have had it figured out early, but it was still good.
I really do recommend this book. Frigid has hot romance and great character and a little suspense, just in case the firs two don't do it for you. Grab your hot chocolate and give it a read!
