Frigid by J. Lynn
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…
What I Thought:
This book was light, fluffy, and cute, which is exactly what I was looking for on a boring day at work. The main character was easy to connect with, though a bit naive. I liked that both she and Kyler (I hate that name!) had angst about eachother, but they both dealt with the angst in very different ways. Though the story was a bit of a cliche, they writing still made it seem fresh and interesting.
My one problem with this book was the dramatic turn of events towards the end. I read enough romance to know the formula, so I knew something dramatic was going to happen, but still! The amount of crazy in the climax of the story was a bit insane and over-the-top. But even with that, I still enjoyed this book. I read it expecting a bit of fluff, and that’s eactly what I got. I enjoyed the characters and the romance, even if the “plot” got a little bit too over-dramatic. I would definitely recommend this book to people who like to read a good romance story.
