Summary 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.
I have read some of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books in the past and enjoyed them so I was interested in reading her newest new adult book. I don’t know why but lately the new adult books that I’ve been reading just are not keeping me interested in the genre but I’m happy to say I really did end up liking this one.
I wanted to read this book from the few excerpts that were posted by Armentrout because I love the idea of best friends falling in love with each other. I know for a long time I told Johnny that I didn’t want a relationship with him and it was because we had such a good friendship that I was afraid that dating would ruin a perfectly good friendship. So I felt connected with Sydney from the start because it is a huge decision to make when you don’t want to ruin something that already works so well. Over time her character was someone I did feel connected to but I also felt that she doubted herself and the situations a lot in the book. She would over think every situation and twist it in her mind to upset herself over every little thing Kyler did. So that did grate on my nerves because men don’t honestly say things to upset women and Kyler seemed to just talk and say what he was feeling and Sydney always took it the wrong way even though Kyler never meant it that way. So there was a lot of miscommunication and I honestly believe that none of it was Kyler’s fault.
I also have to say I did like Kyler. He was a nice guy who did sleep around too much but then again that is what young guys do. I know its not fair that guys get to sleep around while women pine away from them and keep their legs closed but that is what society is like and I’m glad that Armentrout didn’t avoid situations that are real to life. I have to say I did melt for Kyler a few times because he generally just wanted to be with Sydney even though he didn’t have it all figured out from the start. I enjoyed that half the book was in his perspective so you could see how genuine Kyler really was and that a lot of the crap that he had to put up with was all from Sydney over thinking each situation. I almost wish Kyler could have had a better leading lady, someone who wasn’t so wrapped up in her own thoughts.
Overall, I really did like this book and I can’t wait to see if Armentrout is going to be writing more books about the secondary characters that were in this story because I would love to see more of Tanner!
