My Rating: 4 Stars
First things first, how did I not know that Frigid was told in dual POV? I have been counting down to this release for what seems like ages, but when I started it and saw that... I was even more excited. I may have actually squealed a little. True story.
Frigid has a completely different feel to it from other Jennifer L. Armentrout / J. Lynn books. I felt it to be a much lighter or fluffier read than her other stuff. I'm not saying this is a negative thing. I really enjoyed Sydney and Kyler, and it was actually a bit of a relief to not have huge emotional back stories for the characters to work through. The only thing to work through here was Kyler being such a man whore.
Boy, can this guy get around. There were a couple of times when I actually winced a little at the thought of what Sydney had to endure throughout their friendship. This is a classic case of best friends both loving each other but believing the other doesn't hold those type of feelings for the other. Sydney chooses to not date, like ever... where Kyler decided if he can't have Syd then he would make his rounds with every other girl. Like, all of them.
There is also a little bit of a mystery to the story, somebody is wreaking havoc on the house they are snowed into. Although, I have to say there really is no mystery. It's pretty obvious who is behind what is happening, but that didn't stop me from wondering what was going to happen next.
As this is Jennifer L. Armentrout writing as J. Lynn, you know you can expect one thing. Steam. And she did not disappoint. The sparks between Syd and Kyler are evident from the start, and once they finally get on the same page... things really heat up. There are some seriously steamy scenes.
There is also the inevitable misunderstanding that takes place. This plot twist is written into the New Adult bible and must be followed religiously. But, I am thrilled to say that after the small bit of drama, there is a happy ending. I think some people are a little worried, because there is a second book in this series expected in 2014. I can guarantee there is no cliffhanger here, and everything with Sydney and Kyler is wrapped up quite nicely. I haven't seen any news about the second book, so I can only assume it will follow some of the other characters that we meet in Frigid.
