Frigid (Frigid #1) by J. Lynn

SummaryFor 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.

Surprisingly, I do not have much to say in regards to Frigid. Frigid did include Jennifer L. Armentrout's typical mix of humor, hot guys and romance, but the novel added a little teeth. If I had to give a comparison to Frigid, I would classify it as an extremely lower-stake version of Becca Fitzpatrick's, Black Ice, but with a lot more romance. 

Like always, Jennifer's writing has me enticed throughout Frigid; she had me laughing-out-loud, yelling to the Book Gods and swooning for Kyler the entire time. Jennifer has such a talent for writing, especially when it comes to humor. Jennifer is one of those authors that can create such a dramatic scene that will change not only the course of the book, but the remainder of the series and still have you laughing. I can't tell you how many times I do not have a straight face when Jen's characters face danger because they always think something or someone says something that has you busting out with laughter. That being said, Jennifer does have a talent with humor, but Jen does realize when to be serious in the face of danger. 

Kyler and Sydney's romance was really cute and a long time in the making, allowing the end to feel even more rewarding. Although I really did enjoy Frigid and I am really excited to read Andrea and Tanner's story in Scorched, Frigid was not one of my absolute favorite Jennifer L. Armentrout books. It seems as though I dislike her contemporary/standalone
novels the least out of all the genres she has written; dislike is a really loose term since I adore Jen and her books have never be rated below a 4/5 stars by me.  

Frigid can easily be devoured in one sitting and is the perfect book to snuggle up with during a cold winter's night.
