Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.
After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.
While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.
An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.
Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.
Trust by Kylie Scott Review
Trust was phenomenal. I could not put this book down. Really. I started it on a Saturday night. I read about 20% of it and then forced myself to sleep. Then right upon waking the next morning, I was reading it. I read it all day. Every minute I had free, I read it. I finished it late afternoon. That’s not easy folks, I have three children under the age of 7. So…
From the very first page, Trust had me completely intrigued. It was heart stopping and emotional. Even though things settled down a bit throughout the most of the book, I could not get enough of Edie and John. Their relationship. Their growth throughout the story. It was just amazing.
(note on sex. For a YA, this was a 5 on the heat scale. That translates to a 3 on the heat scale for adult romance.)
I didn’t want the story to end, but I felt that their story came to a close and I also felt satisfied and fulfilled when I finished the story. I was thinking that Scott was just a great author I enjoyed reading. This was only my third book of hers I’ve read. But now, I’m positive that Scott is a favorite of my mine for life. I want to be her when I grow up (as an author someday. I’m already a grown-up). I’d love to listen to Trust on audio. OMG. I might re-read Trust right now.
I’m not a big fan of book trailers. They are normally pretty unprofessional looking. But this trailer pulled out all the stops. It looks like you are watching a movie trailer. LOVE IT!
