Title: Frigid (Frigid #1)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Pub. Date: July 15, 2013
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 will be a short, spoiler free review.
Technically this is my 3rd 5 star read this year, but I’m hesitant to count it. Not that I’m going to remember to actively keep track of this list. I hesitate to count it because it’s a re-read…but the fact that I still loved it so much and it’s been 6ish years since its publication, maybe I should.
I picked up Frigid in my efforts to continue my reread of JLA’s very extensive backlist. I hadn’t read it since its publication, and I knew it was a relatively short book and I’d be able to get through it quickly.
I should note – for those of you who might not know – heads up, this isn’t YA. It’s definitely New Adult.
It’s also just really enjoyable, a bit predictable, but it allows you to turn your brain off for 250ish pages. You get to just immerse yourself in the story and get lost. It’s one of my favorite things about this book. As well as the fact that it takes place on a mountain, in a snowstorm.
All sorts of shenanigans.
There’s also the little bit of mystery and a bit of terror.
If you’re looking for a book that’s got romance, a bunch of steamy scenes and some emotional growth, all set to the background of a giant snowstorm and some buckshot, you’ll want to check this out. Kyler and Sydney are so much fun, and so worth getting to know.
