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.
I'm going to make this a short review since there's nothing else I can tell you about this book except that it was: EPIC. My all-time favourite NA and possibly JLA book. FRIGID is even better than her WAIT FOR YOU, which is definitely saying something since I loved that book as much as I love cupcakes.
Jennifer L. Armentrout is my hero. She's the queen of sexual tension and her writing style is just fab. This may seem like such an overdone and cliche plot but she makes it different and fun. I've always been a fan of the best friends-to-lovers stories and I devoured this book.
Sydney and Kyler are such awesome characters I wish they were real! They're so wonderfully developed and their interactions are just the best! What I really loved about them was that they were so relatable and college people that you can actually meet in real life. Sydney is so like me it's unreal. Her feelings and reactions to things would just be how I'll be in her situation, not to mention we both like reading. Kyler at first is your typical manwhore but when he and Syd were both stranded together his real side starts to come out. He's got a very sweet and swoony side. ;) The side characters Andrea and Tanner were so cute and interesting that I have a feeling the sequel/companion will be about them (fingers crossed)!
This stands out from most New Adult books out there as the main characters don't have a secret/troubled past. YES. FINALLY. I've been waiting to read a book where the main characters don't have a troubled past. Because seriously, I'm getting freaking tired of those already.
And if you need one more reason (which you don't) to buy this book, well let's just say there's plenty of hot and steamy scenes for everyone to enjoy :P
