Jennifer L. Armentrout (also known as J. Lynn), New York Times bestselling author of the Wait for You series, presents Frigid.
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.
This was recommended by a friend on Goodreads because I said I enjoy friends-to-lovers. I’m glad she recommended it.
There were a lot of things I liked about the book. The early chapters that showed Syd and Kyler’s friendship set the foundation for their romance well. Syd’s pain when she would see Kyler with a woman really came through. When Kyler realizes Syd is in love with him, he looks back at his past and sees all the times he hurt her. This showed great growth on his part, which I felt was needed.
I did have a problem with Syd’s insecurities and their lack of communication. For having been friends for so long there was a lot they didn’t know about each other. There were way too many misunderstandings through the course of the book. I would have liked to see them talk to each other rather than make assumptions and jump to conclusions.
The suspense portion of the book was unnecessary. It served as nothing more than a platform for Kyler’s past sins to be brought forward.
Still, I enjoyed the romances and the overall growth of both main characters.
3.5 out of 5
Something aside from the story that bothered me? There were a lot of spelling and grammatical errors.
