Frigid: Review


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.


Frigid is very good. In some aspects it is even better than Wait For You. But unlike Wait For You, I only give this a 4 out of 5 instead of a 5. Because there's a major problem here. It seems like there's no real problems between Sydney and Kyler's relationship other than... well, Kyler being a man-whore. Okay, in Wait For You there's also no real problems between Avery and Cam other than Avery not being able to tell the truth. But hey, at least Avery has good reasons, while Kyler does not. So I'm a little annoyed by this. But other than that, everything is good.

The writing is perfect. With all the hyphened words, everything is much hilarious, because for some reason I love hyphened words. They are smooth, especially in Sydney-and-Kyler-having-intimate-aka-sex-moments. The book is also not one of those dragging-outs, which makes reading this real fast and that kind of does it. How can I not love a book written so good?

Kyler is no perfect guy. He has a reputation as a man-whore, come on. But just because he has this kind of reputation doesn't mean he's not good. In fact he's sweet and caring, especially to Sydney. If you read the book, you can totally see Kyler putting Sydney above everything, certainly above himself. The most amusing and cutest part is that Kyler tries very hard to remember the girl who literally throws herself to him because he doesn't want the girl to be unhappy. I giggle hard at that. Hey, I can totally swoon all over him.

Sydney is good too. For one thing, she's honest to herself, because I'm a little tired seeing female characters denying what is in their heart. At least she's honest about loving Kyler for ever. And she's very sweet because of her naivete. You know, just wanting to date some nice and fun guy, like every other girls, and she rarely complains about her problems (many that involves with Kyler!). That's one girl I would like to befriend.

Overall the book is being short and sweet and totally all-out swoon-worthy. If you like NA novels, dive for this one because you will fall in love with it.

Rating: 8/10
