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.
Two long years later I open my door to see him standing there, and the reason he's back will change everything

"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.
This Book Nerd Says:
FRIGID AFFAIR is definitely a read that will steam up a chilly winter day or night. It was a story that caught me by surprise in several ways.
This is my first read by the author so I walked in with no previous knowledge of her style and without any preconceived expectation of the story and I can say without hesitation that it definitely gave me more than the synopsis led me to believe.
After a tragedy strikes Amantha is finds herself enjoying the solitude of the Alaskan wilderness. With only her dog for companionship, even she can't deny herself the pangs for more when a stranger on the mountain saves her life. Content with the idea of having more for the night, they give in to their attraction and find something in one another they didn't imagine.
This story gave me both predictable and unpredictable twists and turns. I appreciated the surprises because they helped to keep me engaged with story. I say this because I enjoyed the plot more than the characters. The characters weren't unlikeable but I had a harder time actually connecting with them. I found myself wanting to be more emotionally invested in their personal backgrounds. Those backgrounds were emotional and it took me a good fifty percent of the story to really get to the point where it all came together for me.
That being said it was a fun, steamy, great-escape kind of read that gave us a complete love story tied all together at the end. I'm giving FRIGID AFFAIR 3.5 Stars.
