Frigid by J. Lynn

Summary from Goodreads:

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.

Review:

I have to say after being disappointed by Obsession, I was worried my expectations and excitement for Frigid would lead me to another let-down. However, I found Frigid to be engaging and entertaining without eliciting too many major eye-rolls. I enjoyed the premise of two very different best friends being in love with each other AND being too blind to realize that their love was not unrequited.

I really liked Kyler and Sydney despite a few moments when they both displayed how utterly stupid they could be. Kyler had his stereo-typical womanizing bad boy side but it was the side of him he saved just for Sydney that won me over. I could definitely tell, given the chance, Kyler was willing to be the kind of man he believed Sydney deserved. It also didn’t hurt that he was devastatingly gorgeous and said all the right things.  Also, his air of vulnerability also added to his charm, As for Sydney, there were times her incessant self-doubt got on my nerves but overall she was a good character. I  loved some of the things she said and how hilarious she could be. What I really liked about her was that she thought most things through and wasn’t overly impulsive. She also tended to match Kyler’s snark and didn’t just let him get away with everything, she challenged him to be better

Even though I really enjoyed the plot it was a little unbelievable to me. I have a hard time believing two people who know each other that well would have no inclination about their mutual feelings or at least attraction to one another, Also, the whole “mystery element” of someone terrorizing them wasn’t all that  well-developed so that left something to be desired,

Overall,  I really enjoyed Frigid. I found it to be a quick and fun read, especially for a chilly fall/winter night. The relationship between Kyler and Sydney is good for some laughs and will keep you on your toes.
