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.
Kyler and Sydney are best friends in love with each other and pretty much everyone can see it but them. He sleeps with pretty much anything that wears a skirt just to drown out his want of her and she... well she suffers alone after her one boyfriend was a total asshat. These two get snowed in by themselves and well... their feelings come to light after much fighting and a lot of Sydney being so sadly insecure. Her ex did a number of her.
They also have someone after them... but the danger never feel dangerous... that make sense? Like I just knew that nothing would really happen. I felt like the stalker aspect was just thrown in there for shits and giggles but besides for that part. This is a cute little novel. It's weird to weird a JLA book that doesn't have lots of witty banter between the characters and I missed that.
So with the tension between these two, I do find it hard to believe that they've went their whole lives without even guessing at the feelings... I mean I've seen brothers less protective and possessive of girls than the way Kyler was over Sydney. It was easy to see he wanted her even through all the slutty girls he took home. She hid it a little better I think, even though it was still easy to tell that all those girls hurt her.
Overall, I do think this was a quick little romance novel. I enjoyed it but I knew I would... I mean it's JLA.
1) “If I fall and break my neck, will you say something nice at my funeral?"
"Like 'Kyler was usually more graceful?”
2) “We walk – or shuffled along – about a yard and then I walked straight into a mailbox. I grunted. “Son of a bitch jumped right out in front of me!”
Kyler stopped, shaking his head. “You are a hazard to yourself right now.”
“I’m fine.” I waved him off, edging around the tricky inanimate object as I shot it a dark look. “I’m watching you.”
