Frigid, by J. Lynn

3.7 out of 5 stars

Sydney has been in love with her best friend Kyler for as long as she can remember.  Kyler, never feeling worthy of Sydney, has slept his way through high school and college never with one person for too long, but always looking out for Sydney.  Sydney is afraid if she reveals her true feelings to Kyler she could risk ruining their friendship and there is no way she can loose him.  So, what happens when the two of them find themselves alone and stranded at a ski resort during a massive Nor'easter?

I absolutely fell in love with Wait for You, my first J. Lynn book, and I was very excited to read Frigid.  I had such high hopes for this book and while I did enjoy the story I have to admit it took me a little longer to connect to the characters than I typically like.

For more than half of the book it was back and forth between Sydney and Kyler, both afraid to make a move.  Since the book is written in switching POV's you know how each character feels about the other and I found myself extremely frustrated in how long it took for them to get on the same page and act on their feelings.  Once it finally happens their chemistry explodes and they get to spend a lot of time together finding ways to keep each other warm.  However, it's not all rainbows and sunshine for this new romance because it has become increasingly apparent there is a stalker who is determined to make surviving the storm and each other almost impossible.

I loved the setting, Snowshoe Mountain, West Virginia and when I was finished reading the book I wished it were winter and I could be there skiing!  Once Sydney and Kyler confronted their feelings and took the step beyond friendship I finally started feeling sucked in to their story, but then there was maybe only 30 or 40% of the book left, so it felt like as soon as I got vested in them as a couple their story was over.  I did however like the ending and was thrilled to see Sydney and Kyler get their happy for now ending.
