Ashleigh's Saturday Book Review

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 such a sweet story and very easy to read. The friendships, misunderstandings, drama and obvious but overlooked love pulls you in. Sydney Bell has been in love with Kyler Quinn since they were little kids, but she's shy and insecure and doesn't want to lose the friendship she has with Kyler by admitting her love. Kyler Quinn has always loved his best friend but doesn't think he's worthy of her because, yes, he's a man-whore. I really enjoyed this book, but seriously there were some times I wanted to shake the crap out of both of them. Syd was so insecure and un-trusting that she lets everything get to her. Kyler doesn't seem to notice what his actions are doing to his best friend. There was definitely some laughs in here and moments that you find yourself smiling at the words. I loved the witty banter and the complex but endearing relationship. There was definitely a time in the story that I was mad at both them. After everything that has happened to and between them Kyler leaves to go for help and instead of coming directly back to either get Syd or tell her what the plan was he just leaves her hanging. So Syd decides to go by herself to find him, and automatically assumes the worst of him. Given his track record I could see this, but to me he made it clear that his feelings for Syd couldn't be topped. My two favorite parts were when Kyler has his "oh!" moment when he realizes all the times he's broke Syd's heart and also when her dad comes in 'just making sure he made it up here alive', and then tells him next time to use the front door. I found myself not wanting the book to end, but somehow at the same time it was the perfect amount of story. I liked that it was dual POV's. But I LOVED that there was no cliffhanger at the end. Enjoy Book Bitch Ashleigh
