A treacherous winter storm brought him to me. While the wind ripped, freezing everything in reach, he was a warm distraction, albeit a constant reminder of what I’d been missing. I thought I’d never see him again. I was content with it being a one-night-stand.

~ 3.5 – 4 Stars ~
I have to say I have conflicting feeling about this book. That’s why I wasn’t able to give it a solid star rating. I really enjoyed the storyline of this book and that’s why I gave it 4 stars, but I trouble connecting with the characters of this story and I really didn’t like Amantha much. That’s why I gave it 3.5 stars. I think had the characters bond and Amantha been more likable, this book would’ve been a solid 4 stars.
Frigid Affair is a stand alone novel from Jennifer Foor. I have been a huge Jenn Foor fan since the beginning. I find her books always have interesting story lines and are usually stocked full of emotions. She always has me crying at some point in her books. This one was different though. I didn’t get all the emotional feels I usually get with her books. I didn’t cry once during this story.
Now that’s not to say I didn’t enjoy the story line, because I truly did. I can’t say a lot about it because that would ruin a lot of it. I loved that she put some shockers and twists and turns into this story. This is a fairly quick read, one that can be read in an afternoon. Even though this book seemed shorter than Jenn’s other books, this didn’t lack for anything. I thought the characters were well developed and the storyline was just as thought out as her other ones. The storyline is what kept me hooked and turning the pages, because I wanted to see how everything was going to work itself out.
In Frigid Affair we meet Amantha. This book is told solely from her POV. She is a woman who has tragically lost her whole family in a train accident and has decided she wants to isolate herself from society. She moves to Alaska to a cabin high in the mountains and pretty much becomes a recluse. That is until one night she is awoken by the sounds of a fire down the mountain and goes to check it out. She runs into a handsome stranger. Said stranger saves her life and demands to take care of her to make sure she will be okay. Little did she know this stranger was going to change her life forever. I can’t say more on that because it would spoil the storyline. Just know Jenn keeps things interesting 😉
Just because this wasn’t a 5 star read for me doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give this book a try. I think many will end up really liking it. If you are a Jenn Foor fan than you should definitely read this book. I thought it was different from her other books.
“You’re my hero. You saved my life. Let me thank you properly.”
He scratched his head. “For a second I assumed you were going to compliment me. Now I feel like the only guy left for the job. You really know how to make a man feel wanted.”
I let a cackle slip out. “I’m sorry. I suppose I tell it like it is.” I took my finger and looped it into the hem of his pants. He stepped closer, breaking the distance between us. There wasn’t time to look in the mirror and tell myself how inappropriate my mother would say I was acting. This was my life, and parts of me were tired of being neglected. I needed to feel something other than alone, even if only for a little while. “How about we take off these clothes before the warm water runs out?”
His hand latched onto my chin, bringing it up until I could feel his lips grazing over mine. “If you want someone to give it to you good, I can be your guy. I just need you to make me a promise.”
I whispered. “Sure.”
“You can’t hold back. I know we’re battling sleep deprivation, and at some point we’re going to crash, albeit I don’t have anywhere else to be, at least for the next ten or so hours. Let’s forget who we are and what happened in the past. Tonight, it’s just us. If you can do that, I’ll be whatever you need me to be. I want this to happen. I didn’t think I would, but I can’t resist giving you what you want, not when I need it too.” With regard to what he said, I tried to read his expression. He seemed like he was battling demons, and I wasn’t in the mood to stop and ask if he wanted to talk about it. We weren’t friends. I couldn’t help him. I’d run away from everything, proving to be a poor example of a person who could deal with struggles.
I nodded in response. “That won’t be a problem.” It was true. I hadn’t had sex in so long that I knew I wouldn’t be able to think about anything else. My heart was racing and I felt like I was going to pass out, not at all from the smoke inhalation either. I was elated with excitement for what was about to occur between us, almost to the extent of losing consciousness.
I wrapped my legs around his waist and fell in to another kiss, this one more heated.
His tongue coursed over mine, the taste of him familiar and welcoming.
