Summary:
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.

My Review:
I absolutely LOVED Frigid. There is something about Jennifer Armentrout's writing that sucks you in...once you start you can't stop!

One of my favorite parts about this book was the main character Syd. I really feel that she was so relatable and she really was a great girl. It was fun seeing her progress throughout the novel from the quiet best friend, to the girl that takes a couple risks and falls in love. This girl really has some spunk as well and some of her lines had me actually laughing out loud! Syd definitely was different then the normal types of heroines that Jennifer writes about, but I really liked Syd and I have to say she is probably one of my favorite characters out of all of the books I have read by Jennifer.

Now onto Kyler...OMG. What I liked so much about him is that we really got to see that he really wasn't that perfect as Syd brought him out to be. Especially with the alternating chapters between the two, we really got to see inside of his head and see how he feels for Syd. I liked that we got to dive a little bit deeper into his mind and find out what he was thinking and he really feels for her. Jennifer's writing is this book is outstanding...the book sucks you in right away and I was hooked on all of the characters. The way she writes just wants you to read more and I just felt hooked once I started this book.

Overall, I really enjoyed Frigid! Has to be one of my favorite NA novels that I have read in awhile and I can't wait to see what other books Jennifer has to offer!

Now onto Kyler's Question...
3.      Tell us about your first kiss, Kyler.  Who was it?  Where was it?  What was it like?  My first kiss wasn’t important enough to remember.   Seriously.  But, I can tell you all about the time I first kissed Sydney.  Actually, I think you’ll read about it.
4.      You don’t really do relationships.  Ever have a girl try very hard to change your mind about that?  How did that go for ya?

Question 4 will be answered on BookLoving Mom 7/15

  13. I think that Kyler is charming, athletic, good looking, probably very protective and is hiding a low opinion of himself because he doesn't think he is good enough for Sydney. I am looking forward to reading their story!
