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 was the friend who knew everything about him and whom he trusted above everyone else. I was Kyler's best friend. And because of that, he would never love me the way i loved him.

I have had this one on my kindle for awhile now but I just kept forgetting about it until now but I'm glad I have read it now as just like all J.Lynn/Jennifer L. Armentrout's other books Frigid was just as addicting.

I'm not a huge fan of this particular cover as I don't like the look of the male model as Kyler. I do love the background of the cover though as it's visually stunning with the use of snow and the colours it just works well with the story as well as eye catching.

Frigid for me was very enjoyable and so addicting as I never seemed to want to put it down. The only reason why I couldn't give it the full rating was because at the time I was also reading another book Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire which I prefered over Frigid. I loved the story of Frigid in the way that they where best friends first it made it that much sweeter. There was so much chemistry between them that I found found myself wanting to smack them upside the head. Even though I love romance in my books I also love some mystery which Frigid had plenty of as I tried my hardest to think of who would want to scare Sydney and Kyler throughout the book but I didn't actually guess correctly.  I loved the ending as it was perfect and so so sweet, although there is a part of me that wishes it went into the future but I guess we might see them a little bit in the second book.

He held his hands out to his sides and looked around slowly before his gaze settled on me. “I am awesome.” I could barely breathe. “Yeah.” A knock sounded on my bedroom door a second before it opened. Dad popped his head in, eyes wide. “I’m just making sure he made it up here alive.” I nodded and Kyler flashed a grin. “I’m in one piece.” “That’s good to see.” Dad started to close the door, but stopped. “Next time, use the front door, Kyler.” “Yes, sir,” Kyler said.”

Sydney was a great character who was a smart woman until it came to Kyler then she wasn't so smart but in those moments she was so strong I don't think I could be as strong as she was. Kyler was very much a male whore but like all the other male characters that are portrayed in this way I just couldn't help but love him. There was times when he did annoy me but so did Sydney and this makes for more realistic characters that are not flawless. I also loved some of the secondary characters including Tanner and Andrea (which I'm glad about as the next book in the Frigid series is about these two), but also I loved Sydney's Dad as there was something about him that was so endearing.

Overall another strong book from J.Lynn I just wish I wasn't reading Walking Disaster at the same time as I might have loved it even more.

I lifted my head so my chin rested on his chest. “But you love me?” His lips tipped up at the corners. “I love you as much as a kid loves Santa.” I laughed. “That’s serious.” “Hardcore,” he murmured.”
