Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary
I received this book at BEA (Book Expo America ’13), from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review

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 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 the 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 Thoughts:

I have a confession. I actually read the first few pages of this book months ago and quickly dismissed it as one of ‘those’ New Adult books that would frustrate me to no end. I put the book down and then only picked it up again recently on the reassurances from Krista (Krista’s Dust Jacket) that it wasn’t what I thought it would be. So a quick thank you to Krista for twisting my arm encouraging me to continue reading.

Despite my false start, I did end up enjoying Frigid and I flew it very quickly. It’s a book about two people who like each other but both think the other couldn’t possibly be interested. They both deal with this doubt in very different ways. Kyler’s ‘dealing’ really irked me in the beginning (and a couple other times) but I fell for both him and Syd and I was rooting for them to have their happy ending.

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5


  1. *fist bump* Anytime you need your arm twisted, you know where to go. :) And, I'm really glad you liked this book. My cred remains intact.

  2. I think from what you say it sounds like a good one for me to pass on to my neighbor. Its funny when characters under rate themselves like that.


I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
