BOOK REVIEW: Frigid by J. Lynn

Publication Date: July 15, 2013
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.



Syd is in love with her bestfriend, Kyler.

Kyler is in love with his bestfriend, Syd.

In short, they love each other, not in a sibling or friend kind of way but romantically. And here’s something new, they don’t know that they’re in love with each other. LOL.

I think 90% or more of the book is just the 2 of them. They were stranded in a ski resort because of a snow storm. They don’t have a choice but be in each other’s skin. Literally. There were unusual things that have happened which makes the unpredictability of the book. I love that there’s some suspense added to the goodness or yumminess of the book.

The book is narrated in two PVs, Syd and Kyler’s. I love that we can hear both sides which will give us ideas on their internal struggle to contain their feelings.

The characters are loveable. Syd may be uptight but for me, there’s nothing wrong with it. She’s just being herself. Although she has insecurities, she’s very likeable. I also love, love Kyler! I love how he can be protective of Syd. He’s into screwing girls but with Syd, he can be such a gentleman and he’s always there for her. He’s gorgeous and confident with himself but in regards with his feelings with Syd, he sees so little of himself and thinks Syd deserves better than him.

You will witness some misunderstanding and insecurities coming from both characters which will frustrate you. But as we know, in the end there will be a happy ending. You just won’t know how it happens.

I had fun with it so I guarantee, so will you! 


Memorable Quotes:

“Guys are totally stupid when it comes to unrequited love. We females pine away and keep our thighs closed for the most part when we love someone we can’t have. Guys swing their shit around at anything that has a hole, trying to forget the one they want.”

“I will never regret being with you, Syd. Never. And I wish I could go back and relive those hours. I wish I could go back in time, and instead of hooking up with some chick, I’d man up and tell you how I really felt for you, how I’ve always felt for you.”

“Sometimes words weren’t enough— they couldn’t cover the feeling. This was one of those times. So I closed the distance and kissed her, putting everything I felt for her, every promise I made her, into that one kiss.”
