A treacherous winter storm brought him to me. While the wind ripped, freezing everything in reach, he was a warm distraction, albeit a constant reminder of what I'd been missing. I thought I'd never see him again. I was content with it being a one-night-stand.
Two long years later I open my door to see him standing there, and the reason he's back will change everything.

~ 3.5 - 4 Stars ~

I have to say I have conflicting feeling about this book. That's why I wasn't able to give it a solid star rating. I really enjoyed the storyline of this book and that's why I gave it 4 stars, but I trouble connecting with the characters of this story and I really didn't like Amantha much. That's why I gave it 3.5 stars. I think had the characters bond and Amantha been more likable, this book would've been a soli

Jennifer Foor’s latest standalone, Frigid Affair, has a very interesting premise. From the opening pages it’s clear it’s going to be a suspense romance and the back story is set up in the first few chapters. Amantha Stone is living in isolation after having lost her parents and brother to a tragic accident. What motivates her to change her life the the way she does is clear early on. The story then flash forwards a few years to the night Amantha’s life is changed completely and the story line bu ...more

While a huge Jennifer Foor fan, for some reason Frigid Affair didn't hit the mark for me. I had a hard time connecting to Amantha and Jensen.

Amantha suffered a huge loss and decided to move herself to Alaska to be alone for a while. She needed to get as far away from the memories as she could. Living up on the hill with her dog Avalanche, Amantha was content. Lonely, but content. That is until a stranger showed up in her neck of town.

After being alone for as long as she was, plus the ch

A sweet love affair that began as something like a fantasy- a woman living alone in the middle of Alaska just happens to have her life saved by a sexy man who was in the right place at the right time. After their passion filled night together they don't think they'll ever see each other again. But fate has something different in mind.
Amantha made the choice to live in self imposed isolation after losing her entire family in a train wreck. She's grown content with her basic life without relations

I received a copy of Frigid Affair by Jennifer Foor in exchange for an honest review.
This was the first book i have read by Jennifer Foor but it certainly won't be my last. I loved the characters in Frigid Affair and how they really do overcome a lot of mental obstacles in order to be together.

This beautiful romance really does centre around grief and finding it within yourself to have a second chance at love. Both Characters have been through so much and really a lot of it wasn't their fault. Y

Frigid Affair was previously published in a limited edition box set as a short story, but Jennifer Foor has revised and expanded the story to be a full novel. Since I am a huge fan of hers, I couldn't wait to read this story. The blurb really sold me on this story though, and I couldn't wait to read it!

After a tragedy took everything from her, Amantha headed to Alaska to start over. She needed a place that wasn't a constant reminder of every

Why has it taken me so long to read anything by Jennifer Foor!? This was my first Jennifer Foor read, and I must say it will not be my last. This was a wonderful, mildly sized novel, that held my attention from page one all the way to the end. A well-written novel that will have the readers head spinning from the twists and turns, I have to say this was not what I expected it to be at all.

Amantha has become a hermit. A terrible tragedy has landed her on the lone mountainside of Alaska. Somewhere

I am a J4 fan through and through so I am always excited to see what she has going on. Frigid Affair was a bit different than her other stories and also very fast paced even though it spanned over a couple years.

It starts slowly as a simple story of a woman who took drastic measures to leave home and start all over after a devastating loss. Now high up on an Alaskan mountain she spends her time alone and living life in a way that would drive me mad !! Boiling water for baths and fire for heat e

Amantha's biggest worry used to be the right clothes to wear, was outgoing, and just all out sociable. Until the day that her whole world imploded with the death of her entire family in a horrifying train wreck. She couldn't take all the pity stares, and media stalking, so she packed up and moved to Alaska. Now she lives like a hermit in a cabin without electricity, on a mountain. Her closest neighbors only stay in their cabin in the summer, so when Amantha noticed it on fire, she goes to try to ...more

I have always been a huge Jenn Foor fan. I was very curious where this book would go. It is nothing like Jenn's other books. I enjoyed it, but it was a little short for my liking.

Though different from her other books, this story hit all my favorite things I've come to love from Foor's books. Mystery, unexpected love, and developed characters. I applauded her decision to isolate the main character and have her be so self reliant. From the beginning I fell in love with her and was intrigued to learn more. I felt her pain and need to start over where no one knew her. That being said, honestly, her name annoyed me to the point it started to distract me from the story itself. ...more

I am a huge Jenn Foor fan! I typically devour each book of her’s in one sitting without coming up for air. This wasn’t necessarily the case with Frigid Affair. While the story of a young woman living alone after facing such loss only to be tempted by a connection with a stranger had me completely intrigued, the overall story wasn’t exactly the page turner I’d anticipated.

Frigid Affair has a slow start that will eventually creep upon a good storyline with twist and turns to engage you. Although

This is my first Jennifer Foor book. I've heard about her from avid fans (those seem to be the only kind she has) and thought I'd give her a go. I was not disappointed.

Frigid Affair was a fun read that had enough sweet & sexy, mystery, and personal challenges to keep me thoroughly engaged. Plus, the heat level was WOWZA.

Told in a single POV by our leading lady, Amantha (no, not Samantha, she's unique), Frigid Affair is an emotional tale of a young woman's journey out of a self-imposed exile

Scorching Hot!! The Only thing frigid in this book is where it takes place! The heat between Jensen and Amantha is Scorching Hot until she finds out who he is! Then sit back and watch the battle begin!

Amantha is running away from the past,a heartbreaking one.The only place far enough seemed to be Alaska. The only place secluded enough to deal with,and forget the loss of her family. I have to hand it to her She is One Tough Cookie! She carves out a sanctuary on a mountain and lives off the land.

This story brings a whole new meeting to second chances.

Amantha has found herself in a position where she is a single mum living on a mountain in Alaska with her baby. But it is how
her baby came about that is the story.
Jensen was married and his wife is responsible for tearing Amantha’s world apart.

When these two meet for the 1st time it is under false pretenses, but only one of them knows that. When the
mystery is uncovered, the truth comes out & the rebuilding and he

This was the first book I've read from Jennifer Foor and while I loved the premise of the story, I did feel like the story was rushed. I’d like to have seen Jennifer give us more time to fall in love with her characters by giving us more details – sadly I just did not connect with them.

It was hard not to like Amantha. My heart just went out to her. She had to endure a tragic loss no one should have ever have to go through. I can't blame her for fleeing to Alaska to get away from it all. She's an amazingly strong woman. She took everything in stride, never really feeling sorry for herself. She just pulled herself up and k

The backdrop to this story really grabbed me - Amantha is a woman cutting ties with 'normal' life, giving up what an urban lifestyle has to offer, and going off the grid to live close to nature in the wilds of Alaska. Throw in a mysterious stranger who is forced to spend the night in her snowy cabin, and a fabulous story is set to unfold.

Amantha has struggled to overcome a past trauma, and she didn't seem capable of great emotion. Perhaps this is why the connection between her and her man seemed

I received this as an ARC. I have read books by Jennifer Foor and LOVED them!!

Frigid Affair has a slow start, it does come to the point where you start to connect with the characters. It's a story about love and loss. Two people who share a painful past.

If you love a story about two people with masked pain and a past that haunts, Frigid Affair is for you.
