Book 1 of 2 Standalone Romances
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.

Steamy New Adult Sweet
Continuing the Christmas Countdown, today I am reviewing Frigid by Jennifer L Armentrout. Frigid centers around two twenty-one year old childhood best friends, Sydney and Kyler. Both are in love with each other, but the other doesn't know it. Sydney keeps her feelings to herself, watching Kyler go home with a different girl every night. Kyler, believing Sydney never felt anything but friendship for him, tries to lose himself in one night stands to forget how he feels. But when a nor'easter snows the two of them in at his family cabin, will they finally admit to their feelings to one another.
Truth time: I didn't love Frigid. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it. I won't lie, I was surprised to find a book by Jennifer Armentrout that I didn't obsess over. I liked the characters. There were a lot of sweet moments, and a whole lotta steam, but it fell flat to me. It had every cliché that you could have in a friends to lovers romance, so it seemed cheesy. Putting that aside, I wasn't completely turned off from the story. I got teary eyed quite a few times in the last part of the book.
If you like friends to lovers story (and who doesn't, right?), lots of sex, and a happily ever after, with a touch of Christmas, you will enjoy Frigid ... but I doubt you will remember it.
I love how they met. He pushed her off the merry-go-round for trying to hold his hand when she had cooties, and the next day she held him down and forced him to eat a mudpie.
