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 ...more

Well, a story about best friends in love trapped in a snow storm trying to get warm (ehehehehe) and realizing how they felt for each other <3



"I would’ve given her more if she had wanted that.
I would’ve given her everything if she had asked."

VERY LOW 4 stars!!! BUT I still loved SOOO much about this book!

Frigid is NOT my favorite book by this very talented authors, and as much as I loved it, I did have a few issues. The constant misunderstandings and lack of communication throughout this WHOLE friends-to-lovers trope became tedious and tiring after awhile. And even though I liked both of the main characters, Kyler's voracious man-whoring ways was more of a turn OFF for me, NOT a turn on. I still fell in love with him but he was no

QUESTION:

What's better than a six pack?


An eight pack!

In reality, even though I’d been with everyone else, I’d always been Syd’s.

“I’ve loved you since you pushed me down on the playground. I swear— I’ve loved you since then.”


First of all , I can’t believe that I'm rating a J.L. Armetrout book with 4 stars.



It wasnt bad BUT Sydney was frustrating most of the times.

Okay, I CANNOT wait for this book. I wanna read it so bad. Plus, it's by JLA. That means there's a 100% chance I'm gonna love it to death.

And, aha, Kyler. Kyler Kyler Kyler. Have we all seen the drool-worthy boy for him?

;)
(His real name is Adam, by the way.)

Yeah. I can't even.

Ahhh, this cover's going to be great, and then the book is going to be even greater, and this is just going to be AWESOME.

Personally, I think SHP should release it, like, now. But hey, that's just me.

Either way, AHHHHHHHHH. <3

Let us all bow our heads and have a moment of silence for the books you’re planning to read after this one.

And let us pray that they’re even half as good. ;)

Jennifer Armentrout AKA the Yoda of sexual tension does it again with this book of scrumptious amazingness!

Seriously, I didn’t even know you could write a sex scene like that! GEEZ! And it’s not just the way this woman can write a sex scene that makes her writing so electric… it’s the way she architects her characters. Sydney, for exampl

Misunderstanding's, unrequited love, secrets, drama, friendships and a whole lot of snow ... 'Frigid' is a sweet, easy to read Romance and its a perfect addition to my 'easy to fall in love with' books.

What a wonderful, unexpected breath of fresh air! I've had such a hard time with the New Adult genre lately. Too much DRAMA, too much ANGST, too many OVERREACTIONS and too many UNREALISTIC situations. If I wanted to hear about that kind of thing, I'd go ask my ten year old about the gossip going on in her fifth grade classroom. There would be many, many BFFs crushing on the same cute boy and loads of OMG moments followed by mean girls ROTFL.

Fortunately, that was not the case here. Sydney and Kyl

I can't believe this book. It was so, what's the word? Awful?

I know it's Jennifer Armentrout we're talking about but sadly all of her books (except Covenant Series) have the same bland characters. I remember lusting over Daemon when Obsidian first came out but now I just can't remember why. Most people, who obsessively read new adult novels will love her every book but I just wish it had more substance. Something other than a girl with self-esteem issues, a guy who has abs to die for and a mile

Okay, I know I’m biased because I pretty much love everything that Jennifer Armentrout writes. But I’ve got to say that I loved this. Every second of it.

So, Kyler and Sydney are best friends since they were kids.
Sydney is a little uptight good girl that’s in love with Kyler since forever. But she knows Kyler doesn’t do the commitment thing: He sees, he does, and he leaves. And she knows that he will never see more in her that a best friend.
So for years she suffers, wat

Sydney has loved Kyler for as long as she can remember. They have been best friends since they were children. Kyler is a bit of a player (understatement ;) and Syd knows he doesn’t see her that way. She won’t risk their friendship by letting him know how she feels. Even though it hurts seeing him with g

The book isn't that great.
ANOTHER book based on lack of communication between two people who love each other.
A totally used plot..

The characters seemed very immature; personality wise. They didn't seem like they were 21.
The twist was so predictable.

I expected a lot more seeing as all my friends gave this book 4 and 5 stars.

The only thing I loved about this book was the cover.

Kyler and Sydney have been friends forever but for quite a while, they have each wanted the other as more. Different reasons have stopped them from following through on anything. Finally, things start to change when they are stranded in a cabin during a snow storm.

For the most part, I enjoyed this story. It's not complicated and it's an easy read. Besides the emotional yo-yo, there is some suspense but even that is easy to figure out.

My Kyler and Sydney:


Sydney is really nice but uptight 21 years old girl who is in love with her best friend Kyler. It pains her to see him man-whore his way at college but her feelings for him are only getting stronger. She thinks she doesn't stand a chance and she doesn't want to ruin their friendship.

No one could replace me in his life. I knew that. I was the friend who knew everything about him and whom he trusted above everyone else. I was Kyler's best friend. And because of that, he would never love me the way i loved him.

Sydney has been secretly in love with her best friend, Kyler, since what seems like forever. She hates that he is a man-whore and a player who never says 'no' to a girl that wants to jump his bones. The only excpetion? Her.

"I was in love with my best friend.
And it could be worse, I guessed. I could have been in love with a male stripper or a drug addict. Kyler Quinn was neither of those things. Although he could easily be passed off a male stripper with those jaw dropping good looks and messy brown hair, and he was addictive as any drug out there."

A friends to lover's story....what's not to love??????



I have mixed feelings about this book, on the one hand I truly loved it and then on the other there were parts which, for me, just didn't work....

It's a story told from the dual perspective of our hero and heroine which is always a bonus for me......

Our heroine.....
"And Syd-innocent, lovely Syd-didn't have a lot of experience when it came to sex."

Our Hero....

Well...it pains me to do so but, damn this book was BAD! And I'm a BIG JLA fan! But this one just didn't work for me. At. All.

The Plot:

Not. Original.

The first half of the book....waiting, waiting, waiting!





You two seriously need to have a conversation. One where you aren't LYING to each other's face. PLEASE! I hate spending the entire book in a state of miscommunication.

Sydney:

Poor, poor Sydney. Honestly, she ranks up there as one of my LEAST favorite heroines of all time.

I liked, but didn't love this one. (Maybe I was expecting too much after my total obsession with Cam). I liked the beginning, and wow, I felt every second angst from Sydney's seemingly unrequited love for Kyler. But at some point, when they were both dancing around their feeling and attraction, while spending WAY to much time thinking about how they weren't good enough for the other, I just got frustrated and bored.

You'd think then that I would have welcomed the "action" thrown in at the end, b

This was a cute, fluffy "friends-to-lovers" New Adult romance and while it was very predictable, it was also just light, sexy and fun.

It had several laughs, and a lot of steam in the second half and despite the plot being very predictable, sometimes you really need that - especially after a particularly dark or intense read.

The story is about Kyler and Sydney who had been inseparable best friends since childhood ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie. Bu

My all time favorite type of love story as always been friends-to-romance, and Jennifer did such an amazing job with this book.
Sydney and Kyler were some of the most frustrating and self-conscious characters I've ever read, I really wanted to bang their heads together. Hard. Repeatedly. But they were also some of the sweetest and most adorable couple I've read in a long time as well. Throughout their entire drama of self-doubts and in-your-face past mistakes, I sincerely fell in love with the wa

This pains me. This book, review and rating will gut me. I’m sorry Jenny.

The Good:
The synopsis – two attractive people snowed into together with a fire place. This could have lead to some steam and swoon worthy moments. Right?

The dual POV - I liked hearing from Kyler because there is no way I could have only read from Sydney's woe is me voice.

Zach – I mean, obviously he is that good. (view spoiler)

I'm going to make this a short review since there's nothing else I can tell you about this book except that it was: EPIC. My all-time favourite NA and possibly JLA book. FRIGID is even better than her WAIT FOR YOU, which is definitely saying something since I loved that book as much as I love cupcakes.

Jennifer L. Armentrout is my hero. She's the queen of sexual tension and her writing style is just fab. This may seem like such an overdone and cliche plot but she makes it different and fun. I've

“We walk – or shuffled along – about a yard and then I walked straight into a mailbox. I grunted. “Son of a bitch jumped right out in front of me!”
Kyler stopped, shaking his head. “You are a hazard to yourself right now.”
“I’m fine.” I waved him off, edging around the tricky inanimate object as I shot it a dark look. “I’m watching you.”
