Frigid by J. Lynn (aka Jennifer L Armentrout) ~ Excerpt & Giveaway ($200 Giftcard)


Welcome to the Frigid tour!

For this tour, Kyler will be answering questions at each stop along the way.


The totally fun thing about this tour is 

KYLER!


He's gonna be with us for every blog stop!

I got the chance to interview him but I won't be sharing all at once.

One question per blog per day.

Today's Kyler question and answer?

Question 1

You’re planning the perfect vacation.  The sky’s the limit so everything is fair game.  How long will it last?  Where will you go?  What’s one thing you have to do?  Who’s going with you? 

Since I love skiing and snowboarding, I know you think I’m gonna pick some amazing ski resort.  But, I would want to take Sydney with me, and she’s not into snowboarding.  I know she loves going to my family’s cabin, but I would want to take her somewhere that we could spend more time together doing activities that she might enjoy.  Also, somewhere that we need less clothes, preferably where Syd’s attire consists of a bikini or nothing at all.  Hmmm…so maybe Bora Bora?  It’s supposed to be beautiful.  We could stay in one of those over-water bungalows.  I think Sydney would think that was romantic.  Or, at least a nice change from being snowed in by a blizzard.

Question 2 will be on K-Books tomorrow but here's what he will answer for you....

Okay, Kyler why did you push Sydney down on the playground in second grade?  I want the whole story.  

Find out his answer on K-Books  tomorrow! 

 

Book Description:

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.


What else do I have for you?



Excerpt!







Before I could utter a word, his hands were on my hips.  My breath hissed between my teeth at the intimate contact.  It was the second time today he’s gotten all grabby hands with my hips.  Not that I was complaining, but heat simmered in my veins, curling my toes inside my boots and my poor body could only take so much.

“Here,” he said, his voice light.  “You’re about the size of a teacup Chihuahua.  You’ll hurt yourself.”

Kyler lifted me out of the Durango, and I gripped his upper arms.  Hard muscles flexed under my hands and a smartass retort died on the tip of my tongue.  He was touching me, which probably meant he wasn’t pissed at me anymore and since his fingers were wrapped around my hips, I hadn’t the foggiest idea why I’d been mad at him.

(Page 38-39 of the ARC)

  112. Kyler was actually sweet, protective and loveable. thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  113. I think Kyler is like many who "sell themselves short". He probably needs the reassurance that he is desirable and his self worth is so low he cannot expect his dreams. He also is probably a person who doesn't get the love and affection from family so seeks it elsewhere.
