    One thought on “Frosted”

    1. Rating Clarification 3.5 Stars“I knew…you were meant to be with me from the first spin on the ice,” he said. “Then, when you laughed and tipped your face back to catch the snowflake on your tongue, I knew if it wasn’t you…it also couldn’t be anyone else.”Frosted was pure wintery wonderfulness!! I was able to immediately suspend my reality and enjoy this novel from beginning to end. When an author transcends magic into the mortal world and executes it to perfection, it proves why [...]

    2. To be perfectly honest, romances aren't usually my thing. I'll admit, I'm a prude, and graphic s-e-x, I don't really care for. SO, I was really glad to find that in THIS romance, there was none of that (so if you are looking for book porn, try 50 Shades). I love "love". Just stories about people finding it, and what they go through to get there, and this fit the bill. Also, it's not hokey. Maybe you look at it and think, Jack Frost? Seriously? But don't. It's not at all cheesy! The only thing th [...]

    3. 4.5 Stars: I love, love, love the cover. Maybe because the cover is so awesome, I wanted to fall for Jack a little bit more than I did.Kate's side of the story is really well done, but Jack's story felt a tad weak to me. He starts off somewhat immature but in a likable way. Somewhere in the story, he loses that immaturity--making himself a worthy husband--but we're not shown enough about why or how he changes. It's a novella though, and it's always hard to show enough in short stories. :) Maybe [...]

    4. I am an absolute fool for fairytales redone for grownups, and whenever I find one well done, I know the author is a kindred spirit. Jack Frost, adult and looking for his foretold queen, and it turns out immortal men are just as clueless as the regular ones, lol. Seven years these two (adorable) nitwits spent apart, because neither H nor h spoke up and talked, but in the end, the Winter Kingdom (and the mortal world!) were saved. Lovely, non- erotic fairytale, a sweet, quick read. Nice job!

    5. Until Frosted, my vision of Jack Frost was more like Martin Short in The Santa Clause 3, rather than a blonde, sexy hot guy. Jack Frost, an unexpected marriage to a mortal, estrangement, and a runaway bride? I had no idea how this was going to play out when I picked up this book, but it did, and it did well!Kate and Jack were both fabulous main characters, frustrating as anything at times! Kate was terrified of love and commitment and Jack wasn't doing a very good job of showing his love. Kate w [...]

    6. This was a short story, so this will probably be a short review. Who new that Jack Frost could be so hot? I expected to come across a story of a chilled Jack Frost that would have been cold both physically and emotionally, but that isn’t what I got. And it made me smile. Jack Frost is a sweet heart, or yeah and he’s a sexy tall man with crystal blue eyes. *Swoon. The story starts off in the middle of the story, so to speak. Jack and Kate have a past and she can no longer run from it. Surpris [...]

    7. I really enjoyed Frosted. In the interest of full disclosure, I'm friends with the author and was privileged with the opportunity to read the story early. That being said, here's my review.Ms. Sparrow creates amazing characters. They have depth, humor, motivations, and flaws. She does such a good job that I wouldn't be surprised if Kate walked up and tapped me on the shoulder. Being in Arizona, I'd be pretty surprised to see Jack - especially during our 10 months of summer.I share in the thought [...]

    8. I honestly can say I didn't know what to expect when picking up Frosted. Hmmm, a story about Jack Frost meeting a girl who falls through the ice and making her queen and then letting her go and finally chasing her down to convince her one last time. Sounds interesting, but can it work in a novella? The guy on the front was telling me it could and I honestly don't even go for blondes (my husband is dark headed and I've found my type is mostly dark-headed men). I mean look at him, doesn't he screa [...]

    9. Full review on blog: gloriousbooks/2I have to start this review off by saying I'm really picky with romances. There are some things I can't stand in a romance and there are also things I have to have in a romance read. This book was pretty much an okay read for me - it had a lot of problems in my opinion, but it also had its moments.It was mostly the characters that threw me with Frosted. Jack Frost had a lot of potential as a character - he was complicated and mysterious, but while he had loads [...]

    10. Jack Frost, I've always loved him, and in Wendy Sparrow's novella Frosted, you get to look at Jack from a whole new perspectivea grown-up one. After falling through the ice Kate finds herself in a fantasy world with Jack Frost, and ends up marrying him, becoming his queen. She cares for him, but isn't really sure she wants to be in this magical place, at least not forever. He agrees to let her go back to the mortal word to "put her affairs in order," giving her 2 years to return. Kate, fearful o [...]

    11. Originally posted What I'm ReadingSo, yesterday I didn't feel like jumping into a novel just quite yet. The last book kind of left me with that unsatisfied feeling, so I decided to read a novella. I'm so glad a I got a chance to read Frosted by Wendy Sparrow. Well, this debut author brings to us a story about Jack Frost and his queen. Now when you think of Jack Frost you don't think of him as a man looking for love, but you would be surprise. Seven years early Kate Finley meets Jack when she fel [...]

    12. This was a great quick read and I could definitely see this developing into a longer book or even a series of books. Kate had been raised by two parents who didn't realize that their loveless marriage was setting in motion a lifestyle for Kate that would almost cost her her heart. She had grown up seeing two people trapped in a marriage and eventually not even speaking to one another. They divorced and went on to remarry, but instead of giving Kate the family that she deserved, she ended up feel [...]

    13. It was an amazing book. I didn't think I would like it so much but I was wrong. It was a book with winter and snow and for that I love it. "Frosted" was a very interessant book and it's the first book I have ever read with winter's king.This book is about Kate, a girl who fell in the cold water when she was skating. This was her destiny. After that she should became the winter's queen but she refused. She was gone for seven years and when she came back, Jack, the winter's king, was trying to cov [...]

    14. When Kate Finley falls through some thin ice, she never expected to find herself face to face with Jack Frost, let alone married to him. Afraid of commitment, marriage and love, Kate finds a loophole with Jack that allows her to come back to her world. She's unaware that her separation from Jack has dire consequences, until she finds herself in Denver right before the Winter Solstice and once again face to face with Jack. Can Kate trust in herself and Jack while letting go of the past?This was a [...]

    15. I don't know why, but I seem to have a huge crush on Jack Frost. This version of him definitely encourages it. He sounds like he would give any woman the shivers. This story was a fantastic romance with just the right touch of fantasy. I appreciated that Kate had real problems and issues holding her back from her relationship with Jack. Not to mention it would be a little disconcerting to think you'd be surrounded by snow and ice all the time with only one other person for company. That would gi [...]

    16. Really adorable romance about Jack Frost and his runaway bride. While I could have used a bit more communication from both of them earlier on (but then, we would have no story!) I can understand both POVs and their issues. Hers are based on a life spent making sure she depended on no one, and vice versa. His are more arrogant, but when you're the King of Winter, maybe you get used to things going your way. The physical aspects (& repercussions) of their separation were a creative touch.I fel [...]

    17. This is a sweet, quick read. Very interesting premise, kind of a fractured Jack Frost story, or an alternate back story. I really loved the descriptions of winter, an interesting take. The pacing was lovely, and moved the story along without being overwhelming. As I often Am inclined to do when I read about interesting worlds, I now will look at frozen water in a different way. I am being stingier with my give star ratings, for my own reasons, or I would have handed one out to this book. Lovely! [...]

    18. Frosted by Wendy Sparrow is a sweet fantasy romance.Kate has been on the run from Jack Frost for seven years. After she fell through the ice one day, she met Jack on a land she thought would only exist in her dreams. But first she had to die so she could be there permanently. One thing that Kate doesn’t like is not being in control, and giving up her choices to become the Ice Queen is not something she has chosen.Read More

    19. Considering this is a novella, Sparrow does a nice job of creating the story and drawing in the reader. Would I like more backstory? Sure, but since this is a novella, I was okay with what was there. The romance in this is really sweet. Jack Frost is nothing like what you might have imagined. And though there are not explicit love scenes, the romance still has a definite hot factor. I look forward to more from Sparrow.

    20. FROSTED by Wendy Sparrow is the first fantasy romance I have ever read. Wendy was truly into her main character’s head. Kate’s description of Jack leaves the reader feeling the intensity of Jack’s eyes as he looked at Kate and the cold running through her veins. More than just reading the story, one can imagine the characters coming to life. This was a quick read, but lots of fun. It will haunt you for days afterward.

    21. What a great read! I only wished it were a longer book so we could learn more about Kate and Jack Frost, both in their romance and with the paranormal fantasy elements. The magic of winter was a great conceit.You also have to love Wendy Sparrow's way with dialogue and description - you feel the cold of winter, the heat of hot chocolate and the depth of Jack's and Kate's attraction.

    22. 3.5 to 4 starsQuick, cute read. Kate had a few character inconsistencies, but they didn't drive me totally nuts. Ending resolution was too easily won, but the pacing was steady and the characters were likable.

    23. This was a great and different approach to the paranormal love story! I love that Kate has real reasons for fighting against her relationship with Jack, and I also loved that Jack had some competition along the way.

    24. That. What the hell was THAT? Completely out of left field a wonderfully perfectly structured little modern fairy tale retelling when I least expected it. Just a lovely way to cap an otherwise dreary day. Brava, Ms Sparrow. Brava.

    25. Cute and simple fairy tale for adults. I've been following Wendy Sparrow on Twitter for ages, and love reading her in the 140-character format, so I've been waiting eagerly to see more. This ebook leaves me wanting yet MORE. :-)

    26. Loved it! Two songs spring to mind, Cold as ice and Feeling hot, hot, hot! Imaginative, original, romantic and a race to meet an unusual deadline page turner.Well written and I recommend you take the plunge into Jack Frost's Winter wonderland.

    27. I enjoyed this book and I loved the imagery within it. On an imaginative level, I loved the idea - I thought it clever. A good read.
