Book: Frigid
Series: Frigid #1
Author: J. Lynn

Review: College seniors Sydney and Kyler have been best friends forever. Sydney has secretly been in love him for years but doesn't want to say anything for fear of ruining their friendship. Kyler is also a complete man-whore which complicates her feelings. When they are stranded together during a ski vacation, they have to confront their feelings for each other and face a nefarious foe. 

This book had a fun premise-best friends who harbor secret feelings for each other are trapped in a house during a snow storm. Unfortunately, I just didn't buy Sydney and Kyler's relationship. Sydney (she had zero self esteem; imagine an older Bella Swan with even less backbone) was SO awkward in every interaction with Kyler I couldn't imagine them ever being friends, no less 'BFF.'  Kyler was essentially perfect (described like an Abercrombie model who loves animals) and his only fault was his man whoring ways. He also called Sydney "baby" quite often, an odd term of endearment for a friends. They both came off rather flat with little personality. I was surprised by the sex scenes (much sexier than I anticipated!). In terms of the mystery, I wish the author had thrown in a few red herrings because it was obvious who the perpetrator was.

Overall, this was an okay read. I've heard great things about this author so I will give some of her other books a try. 

Grade: 2/5
