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.

This was one of my first New Adult reads and it was a very good way to start into a new genre. For one Jennifer Armentrout is a great writer, she has the ability to suck readers into her story from the first page, and I honesty could not stop reading this book.

In comparison to all the other New Adult reads I have read, this is probably the most explicit sex wise. I will say that I loved the sexual tension from the beginning, Kyler and Sydney were great characters, they each had feelings for the other but they both had insecurities about why the other one shouldn't like them back. I will admit that at one point I wanted to smack both of them and just say "get together already" because it was getting a bit much. But WOW, once they got together, they got together!

This book is NOT for teens in any way shape or form, there were some scenes in this book that even made me blush, but I think that is what made this book such a great read. Jennifer explored what all young woman want, a man to focus all his attention on her, and make her feel things no one else has. And it made this book a quick and easy read.

Although I though the conflict at the end was a little over the top, I did really like the reactions from the characters because they seemed real and that is something that can be hard to translate on paper. I loved that Sydney and Kyler's relationship was rocky and was not perfection throughout the whole book. They fought their insecurities and had to deal with situations that showed their true colors. It was a great way to see their characters grow and expand. I am really hoping for another book featuring these two characters because I would love to see where their relationship goes.
