Book Review- Frigid

I finished reading Frigid by J. Lynn last week on the plane for an Around the World ARC Tour.

From Goodreads:

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.

Wow. This book was a straight up romance novel geared toward a slightly younger crowd.  There were so many sexual scenes and words.  I was reading it on the plane and felt like I had to make sure no one could see the words in the book.  But I did enjoy it!
This was a classic romance story--boy and girl have been best friends forever.  They're in love with each other but don't know how the other feels.  We get to follow along to see if they end up together.

I liked Sydney but she had some major issues.  Her self-esteem was extremely low and she had trust issues.  Although considering what a man-whore Kyler was, I guess I don't blame her.  And did he really have to sleep with every female if he really had such feelings for her? 

That being said, I liked their time together in the cabin where they figured out their feelings.  There was a little mystery/danger thrown in, but I had it figured it out from the beginning.

Overall, if you want a romance novel with younger main characters, then this might be the book for you!

I gave this book a rating of 3/5.

Frigid will be released on November 5, 2013.
