Frigid Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

Welcome to my stop on the Frigid Blog Tour hosted by the awesome Valerie from Stuck In Books. I'm so thrilled to have you here today to check out my thoughts and feels on the amazing-ness that is Kyler Quinn Frigid! I just finished it yesterday afternoon and I'm pretty much still delirious from it; so amazing and so very good. EEEEP!

Not only will you get to read all about my feels for Kyler but you'll get to find out his definition of perfection... which, I'm sure you definitely don't want to miss. And on top of all that epic-ness, the fabulous Spencer Hill is sponsoring one heckuva giveaway that no one should miss for the world!

Lots of BOOM, BANG, POW going down today here on Books Over Boys so let's not waste one more nanosecond, eh?

About the book:

Title: Frigid (Frigid, #1)
Author: J. Lynn
Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary
Release date: July 15, 2013

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.

My review:

Jennifer L. Armentrout, in this case, J. Lynn, nailed it right on the head, once again! Though, I’m sure you all saw that coming because all her novels are worth gold. Frigid really did not disappoint and I’m a bit hesitant to say this but… I think it’s my most favorite JLA book up to date. I haven’t read much from her but I have read enough to understand that all the hype is legit. Lynn never fails to wrap the reader all up and around her characters’ lives. She’s always able to bring the humor, the angst, the turmoil, the fun, and the smexy, hot boys—goodness, JLA’s boys are the best! ;p But there’s something more than all of that that never fails to reel me in every single time and that’s the connection and relatability she’s always able to establish between her leading characters and her readers.

Read my full review here.

About the author:

J. Lynn, also known as Jennifer L. Armentrout, is the USA TODAY Bestselling author of the adult romance Gamble Brothers’ series, the young adult Lux Series and award winning Covenant Series. She pretty much writes everything—contemporary, paranormal, and fantasy. All of her books have one thing in common no matter the name or genre: kissing… and stuff. When she’s not busy writing, which is never, she’s usually hanging out with dog Loki, watching reruns of The Walking Dead, or procrastinating on the Internet.

Valerie got the chance to interview Kyler for this tour and every stop is hosting a question from that interview so for today's stop, my question is:

8. Tell us what the perfect day would be like. Where would you go? What would you do? Who would you be with?

Oh, I think I have a damn near perfect day in Frigid. Minus the freezing cold temperatures and the lack of hot water. Really, just waking up with Sydney in my arms—clothing is optional—and spending the entire day with her doing everything and nothing all at once, then falling asleep with us tangled together, is my idea of perfection.

Question 9 will be answered on Monday over at Deity Island but just to get a heads up, check out what question he'll be answering!

9. You’re going out to eat for the perfect meal. Where are you going? Who’s with you? What are you eating?

Find out his answer on Deity Island on Monday, July 22nd!

  2. I loved how protective he was of Syd

  3. Great review! I loved Kyler and I agree with you, this may be my favorite J.Lynn book. Or it at least is close to Tempting the Player. She really knows how to write and grab the reader.

  4. Just finished reading this yesterday! Loved Kyler! Couldn't get enough!

  5. I just bought the book so I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but he seems perfect. Thanks for the amazing giveaway.

  6. I think Kyler is charming, loyal and very protective of Sydney. I am looking forward to finding out why he doesn't think he is good enough for her.

  7. I've been wanting to read this! He sounds great!

  8. Kyler....*sigh* I can't wait to meet him. I honestly don't get which JLA hunk to choose from anymore! lol ;p (maybe ALL of them! ;p *snicker*)

    Thanks for sharing! :D
