Frigid (Frigid #1) by J. Lynn

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.
Four Stars

This Is Forever. 

So this showed up on my Kindle late last night. (Thank you Amazon pre-order.) And so I started this at around 10:30pm and finished it at about 2:30am this morning. As much as it frustrated me at times, I couldn’t put it down until both parties cleared the air, but I’ll get to that later. 

I love Jennifer Armentrout, but her writing as J. Lynn, oh man! I knew I was in for something good. She’s a master at creating Alpha, man-whore-type characters; ones where I want to slap and kiss at the same time. Yea, the Hero in this was no exception.

Sydney was perfect – the actual embodiment of the perfect woman. She was practically pristine and fresh. She was untouchable.
She was everything to me. 

Kyler is a man-whore, there’s no doubt. That quote up there about swinging their shit around at anything that has a hole, trying to forget the one they want, well, that’s pretty much how Kyler acts. He’s always loved Sydney, but has always felt she was too good for him. As a matter of fact, he’s been scaring guys away because no one will ever be good enough for his Syd. 

“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.” 

Isn’t that the truth? 

So we have Sydney & Kyler. They’ve been BFFs since they were little kids. As most of the friends-to-lover stories they both have kept their feelings for each other hidden, not wanting to ruin their cherished friendship. 

Sydney hates Kyler’s womanizing ways, but it comes with the territory with being his best friend. She’s seen so many girls come and go; the door always revolving. But she loves him. She’s had only one serious boyfriend, who turned out to be a huge douche, and she’s had her share of admirers, but no one could compare to Kyler in her eyes. 

Though Kyler did have some good Alpha/possessive moments, it wasn’t enough for me to give this five stars. What really bothered me the most about this story is how Sydney just lets Kyler walk all over her. There was a part in the book where Kyler reflects on how he’s treated Syd in the past, how he seemed to always chose the quickie hook up over hanging out with Syd, and it made me kinda sad. Kyler claimed to have loved her, but how could he consciously act like that around her? Did he seriously not see what he was doing to her? Was he that blind to see what others have seen? It seemed like everyone around them knew how they felt about each other except for them. It kinda got frustrating. 

The story did have some wonderful moments, and a good amount of sexy-snowed-in good times, enough for me to really enjoy the story. Plus I can’t deny that I couldn’t put it down; I badly wanted to know how it will all go down. Even though I didn’t love this like in her previous books, I will always look forward to her books.
