This not a genre I usually read, but I have to admit that Tarrah Anders really cares about her characters. What I mean by that is, usually when it comes to erotic romances, character development and plot take a backseat to the sexy times.
What I like about most about Frozen Over is the amount of character development, especially the amount that the main character, Tyson Maddox, goes through. This story doesn’t use the “instalove” troupe that a lot of romance novels do. Anders builds the romance slowly and allows her characters to form a bond.
On the downside, there are quite a few grammatical errors that need to be addressed. I also thought the ending was a bit weak and I wanted a little bit more clarification from our two leads. However, finding out what happened to the minor characters was a great touch.
I also felt like the issues with Tyson’s mother was never really resolved and just all together was dropped from the plot. I would have liked to have seen Allie confront her head on, instead of just a quick dinner scene and the mother is never heard from again.
A trope that Miss Anders does use that I dislike is the “stalker troupe.” This seems to have gained popularity with the romance genre since Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey hit the scene. The two leads have a fight and break up for a time. The guy starts waiting outside of her house for “just a glimpse” of her. I just find this troupe to be a little creepy and too much.
All in all, Frozen Over is a breath of fresh air when it comes to character development and the building up of a romance. I would recommend it to any erotica or romance lovers who like erotic. If you don’t like steamy scenes, this is not for you.
