Best friends to lovers kind of story
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 is forever.”
This is one of those times when I wish I had a guy best friend too so that we could then conveniently fall in love with each other. Sigh. Sucks to admit now that I went to an all-girls high school.
I was Kyler’s best friend.
And because of that, he would never love me the way I loved him.
I was so excited that Frigid was finally released a few days ago but I had to wait until I finished reading This Man series. And boy did I need THIS!
Kyler and Sydney were best friends. Kyler was a man-whore and Sydney was the total opposite. She’s been in love with him while he’s been out screwing every girl in campus. They went on a trip and they got snowed in for a few days. ALONE. Guess what happens, yeah?
So it’s basically your typical best friends-turned-lovers kind of story. VERY light reading. Well, OK not really, considering this book had a little bit of suspense thrown in the mix.
“Guys are totally stupid when it comes to unrequited love. We females pine away and keep our thighs closed for the most part when we love someone we can’t have. Guys swing their shit around at anything that has a hole, trying to forget the one they want.”
I really had fun reading Frigid. As always, Jennifer Armentrout (of the Lux series) writing as J. Lynn was amazing in her storytelling. I practically finished this in one sitting! True, the suspense part of the book got me rolling my eyes a few times as it just felt too scripted but it didn’t really matter that much to me in the end since I loved it anyway.
“How much snow are they calling for?”
“Somewhere between a lot and holy fuck.”
The witty dialogue also kept me entertained and I wish all books were like this. It was just a good laugh.
“You’re better than a one-night stand, Sydney. I can’t do that do you. You deserve more.”
Again, how I really wish I had a best friend who had a hot body like Kyler. Seriously, you can’t blame Sydney for falling for such a fine specimen.
All those times I’d broken her heart, and she was still here.
She was still here.
And they lived happily ever after. My kind of book, really. 🙂
