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.
Took less than 24 hours, because I defied sleep to finish this. I waited while my video loaded on youtube and got into it in the meantime, I fell asleep around 5 am, woke up at 930 am and dove back into it, It was sooo good!!!

I really enjoyed the unfolding story.  I do however call bullshyt on Kyler's manwhore ways, plenty of guys wait for their girls.  How y'all took this long?? Y'all that dense??  I was so ready when this story unfolded, them being in the ski resort, their friends getting stuck it's just so awesome.  I loved that the basis for their relationship came from their long friendship, and yet they struggled with taking it to the next level because they didn't want to lose what they had, what if it all went wrong?? This I could totally understand.  As the story progressed and they confronted different issues within their friendship and about becoming more I felt how they felt and I really got where they were both coming form.

Syd has the patience of Job because really I'm not sure I would have waited around for you to discover me.  When the mysterious events began to unfold I was intrigued and wanted to know what was happening, as we get closer to the end of the novel and the big reveal happens those scenes really terrified me because OMG it was going to go wrong so badly.   I really loved Syd's reactions, because once again they felt real.

I enjoyed the couple coming together (and boy did they come together) , their shared history helped to hinder their relationship while making it easier as well.  Syd had some serious confidence issues, and she was too easily swayed when it came to listening to rumors but she was good, she kinda reminded me of Shay, Rule's girl from the Marked Men series, they both waited a long time before declaring their feelings for the men they wanted.  And when they finally reached their respective end points they stuck to their guns.

I really liked how they each called bullshyt on each other, and how much their friends loved them and worked hard to be good friends to them individually as well as a couple.  Loved their friends and can't wait to find out what happens to them and how Jennifer makes it all work out.  It kept me hooked definitely getting a physical copy when I see her in November in Chicago.

Now onto the next one.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. and of course as always Happy Reading.
