From Publishers Weekly
Lynn (Wait for You), a pseudonym for paranormal romance author Jennifer L. Armentrout, delivers an earthy and unsurprising new adult contemporary about best friends secretly in love with each other. College senior Sydney Bell has adored Kyler Quinn since they were little kids, but she&'s certain that man-whore playboy Kyler could never feel the same way about her: We went together like a lion and a gimpy gazelle. Little does she know that Kyler shares her feelings. A plan for a pre-Christmas gathering of college friends at Kyler&'s mom&'s ski house in the mountains becomes a provocative situation when Kyler and Sydney wind up stranded alone at the house in the middle of a week-long blizzard. To make things worse, someone begins attacking them and sabotaging the house. Sydney and Kyler are one-dimensional characters, and the predictable plot offers few surprises, but this story should satisfy readers who crave steamy lust with a happy ending. (Nov.)
A New York Times and USA Today Bestselling book!
"J. Lynn is a worthy addition to the new adult genre. Frigid is a welcome departure from some of the more well-trod NA tropes. Sydney and Kyler are simply well developed, realistic characters who just happened to have very hot sex..." RT Book Review 4 1/2 Stars TOP PICK

As a big fan of Jennifer Armentrout, I’m always excited to read her books. But this time it was getting away from the supernatural/fantasy world and going into something more realistic like crushes, best friends, and one hot winter vacation.
Frigid follows college student Sydney, who is in love with her childhood best friend Kyler. She kept this to herself for a long time and with Kyler being a ladies man doesn’t make it easier. She doesn’t want to ruin their long time friendship for a one-sided love, but one winter vacation will change everything. Kyler and Sydney are stranded together at his families cabin alone, together they come face to face with truths that they have kept hidden for so long.
Sydney aka Syd, is a smart but extremely innocent twenty-one year old. I so felt bad for this girl pinning over her best friend who always seemed to have a new girl on his lap. I sometimes wished she’d snap out of it and just cut ties. But she is one awesome best friend for caring more about their friendship and hanging in their through the many floozy girls that came and left. Her innocence was so real, sweet and can see why Kyler always felt so protective of her. In the end she does make some mistakes in judgment but I felt it added to her inexperience and cluelessness that it made her lovable.
Kyler is one smoking hot but frustrating man. It’s hard not to love this guy, even with all of his lame decisions he’s such a good guy when it comes to Syd. He protects her to no ends and sometimes his jealousy is out of place, but he knows her best and vise versa. There are so many scenes that I can name where he won me over, but I won’t spoil anything! Let just say this man knows how to make girls melt. In the end I loved his devotion and how much he cherished his long time friendship with Syd, even when mad at each other they got through it.
Overall, I read this story in one sitting, meaning this was darn good. My only flaw was that some bits were predictable and I would have liked a bit of surprises or more challenges, but nonetheless I loved this romance. This story also made me want to go on a ski trip and drink some hot coco with my hubby, which makes this a perfect book to read on a winter trip. I will always be a fan of Armentrout and can’t wait for more new adult from this great writer.
This is an adult novel with some sexual content meant for a mature audience. Fans of Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols with love Frigid by Jennifer Armentrout.
I'm not even going to dance around the topic... Kyler Quinn is fantastic! Every time I pick up a JLA book I add another character to the book boyfriend list, and this one was no exception. Kyler is so so so easy to fall in love with. I fell hard for Kyler very quickly. He is so confident and charming and sweet and we cannot forget that he is drool worthy. I may quite possibly have a new favorite.
What is even better about this book is that both Sydney and Kyler are relatable. They are probably Jenn's most relatable characters yet. Neither character has anything truly extraordinary about them, they are just two college kids getting ready to graduate and the situation they are thrown into while extreme is definitely feasible. Sydney and Kyler have been best friends since they were little and over time those feelings grew, but do you want to risk that kind of friendship? It is a hard line to cross and as a reader you can completely understand why both characters have been so hesitant for so long. You can understand why both Kyler and Sydney don't want to risk losing one another.
I'm pretty sure every girl has had a Kyler in their life at one point in time. That one guy you know everything about and he knows everything about you. That one guy that everyone outside of your relationship says "you two would be so cute together." That guy that you are perpetually stuck in the friend zone with. It is a very interesting scenario to read about, because I am sure every girl reading Frigid will think back to their Kyler and think "what if" or possibly "I was there once."
What really makes Frigid great is that it is not solely a romance. There is a twist to the story and a bit of intrigue and action that just proves to make the story better. I also loved that it switched up the perspectives. I loved seeing the parallel between Sydney and Kyler. While I had moments where I wanted to yell and scream at them both "you are thinking the same thing", the dual perspective proved to truly allow you to understand the characters. It was also cute seeing how insecure they both really were with each other despite knowing one another their whole life. It really put the emphasis one how and why they both hid their feelings as long as they did.
All in all, Frigid is an amazing read and one I know I will be able to visit over and over again. Kyler and Sydney are amazing characters and characters that you will easily make room for in your heart. I know I have built them their own little room where they now both live and they live there quite happily I might add. So whether you are a JLA die hard or not, please do yourself a favor and introduce yourself to Sydney and Kyler.

I love JLA’s writing, it’s always great smutty escapism, but with ‘Frigid’ I was so annoyed over the first few chapters I was close to DNFing...Read more
