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.
Another great book by JLA, though I must admit I enjoyed the second book in the frigid series a bit more.
But I did really enjoy this book, love the characters and story, while the story was a little predicting it still was great. There was some suspense in the story with someone cutting lines to the house and more, but that also was pretty easy to figure out.
I enjoyed Kyler and Sydney a lot, both are very likable and natural characters that you can easy to relate to.
Loved that they been friends since forever, they secretly loved each other for a long time but neither of them ever said anything to the other. Both dealt with it in different ways.
Now that they stuck together alone for a few days, they can’t fight the attraction to each other and give into it. But of course both thinking it will be just for the time being there. And neither saying how they really feel. While I enjoyed their story a lot I found it sometimes annoying, how many times it was mentioned that they think that they are not good enough for the other person. It got a little old after a while.
But overall it was a fun, loving HEA story that I enjoyed.
I rate this at 3 ½ ★
