Review: Frigid by J. Lynn, Jennifer L. Armentrout

Frigid (Frigid, #1)
Frigid (Frigid #1) by J. Lynn, Jennifer L. Armentrout

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.

    Jennifer never fails to leave me breathless and wanting more, and Frigid is no exception. She is a wonderful story teller, and crafts heroines that are easy to relate to and although they have their flaws, they are strong people and these boys that are protective, sexy, charming and swoon worthy. 
    Frigid is in dual narration but we spend the majority of the time in Sydney's head. The glimpses into Kyler's head though bring a lot to the table, and helps get both sides of the story. 
    I love how far back Sydney and Kyler's friendship goes, and the mostly easy going banter and nature between them, but you can quickly tell that there is a lot of sexual tension brewing under the surface but they are both afraid to speak up because they don't want to ruin their friendship and lost the other person. Due to this non-communication there are some remarks on both sides that are completely taken the wrong way and hurt ensues, but even with this, it adds a realistic and emotional side to the story. 
    I love all the awkward positions they find themselves in and Sydney's dry sense of humor, and watch out for mailboxes when she's drunk. Some of her one liners had me cracking up and trying to die of laughter without waking up my husband. 
    Some of the scenes are intense and had me blushing, so def for mature new adults or those who can handle it. It had me breathless and wanting to curse when the scene was inevitably interrupted. 
     The mystery and danger that were an element in this one I was totally not expecting but I think it was handled and written really well. 
     The ending tied everything up really well and I can't wait to read more in this world.

Bottom Line: Breath taking! Hot romance and great characters.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Have you ever been snowed in?

  8. I haven't read this one yet. Sounds good and I'm glad you liked it. JLA's books tend to have that effect on her readers. :)

  22. I'm so glad you loved Frigid, Brandi. I'm a JLA fan but I was a little skeptical about this one after seeing the okay reviews. I already love Sydney and can't wait to read her one-liners. great review :)

  23. I have this on my e-reader and just haven't made time for it yet—clearly that is a mistake! This sounds awesome, but I'm not really surprised given it's JLA. I don't think I've ever not loved one of her books. I have been snowed in once, and it was awesome, I got to skip school and drink hot chocolate and read all day. Heaven! :-)
