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 rather liked Sydney, I thought she was pretty funny and definitely took the almighty Kyler down a notch. Her character was very endearing and witty, her relationship with Kyler was sweet and honestly I’m a sucker for best friend romances. It was odd though despite being BFFs, it seemed there was so much they didn’t know about one another, they were close but it seems as they got older there was a little *holds thumb and forefinger apart* distance between them. Their chemistry was off the charts and it had me anxiously turning the pages, I was rooting for them from the get go so I was getting frustrated when another chapter would end with no luck. I loved Sydney’s idea of ‘lady balls’ it was funny as all get out and I think all girls could use those, once she got those things started heating up pretty quickly. From the synopsis you’re like ‘ah quiet girl in love with her best friend, that’s gonna be slow’, when really Syd is anything but quiet or shy. So she prefers curling up with a good book, she’s still got the courage to go after what she wants, and what she wants is Kyler.
I had an urge to tip my head back and catch snowflakes on my tongue, but I ended up throwing my arms out, tipping my head back, and belting out, “If you want a woman with a tight little kitty, then find one with itty bitty titties!” Kyler got an arm around my waist, laughing. “God, you are so trashed.”
“You. Don’t. Get. It.” I wanted to shake her. She wasn’t good enough? Was she insane? I was beginning to think so, because it was the other way around. “You’re better than a one-night stand, Sydney. I can’t do that to you. You’re nothing like those other girls. You deserve more than that.”
“I have all these feelings, Syd.” It took me a moment to respond. “You’re so full of it.” He rubbed his cheek against me like a cat seeking a belly rub, and I fought the urge to purr. “I’m full of something.” “Piss and vinegar?” I suggested as I desperately tried to ignore the way my pulse pounded in all the right places.”
I was in love with Syd. Like totally, madly, irrevocably in love with her— had been for years. I thought about the tattoo I’d gotten after high school, the one on my back, and shook my head. Maybe I hadn’t wanted to acknowledge it before, and maybe I was a total shitbag for being with those other girls, but I couldn’t ignore how I felt for her any longer.
