Product description

Product Description

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 is equal parts fearless, unflinching and authentic—and funny, honest and romantic. Is there anything Kylie Scott can't do? This is an incredible entrance onto the YA scene, and will cement Kylie Scott as a must-read for anyone who picks it up.”—Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling author of The Illuminae Series

“Heart-pounding, realistic and wonderfully unique, Kylie Scott's Trust held me captive, fascinated, and riveted to the page from start to finish. A MUST, simply incredible, read!” –Katy Evans, New York Times bestselling author of Tycoon

Trust was an amazing journey that I could not put down! All of my favorite things: young love, a strong heroine, and an absolutely captivating hero, who’s both sexy and bad in alllll the right ways. Loved it!” –Penelope Douglas, New York Times bestselling author of the Fall Away Series

“The thing that will have readers flocking to this book isn’t the sex, or the premise, or Kylie Scott’s fine reputation…. [It’s] the authenticity. Readers will pick up Trust because the characters seem like real teenagers–they’re excitable and insecure and daggy and funny and immature and growing up.” -Ellie Marney, author of Every Breath

"This book has reminded me why YA is my favorite genre. Emotional, real and thought-provoking."-L.J. Shen, bestselling author of the Sinners of Saint Series

Now, I am not usually one to read YA - old fart here - however I will pick up and read anything by Kylie Scott.

And wow! Just wow! This book is amazing. It had me hooked from the very first page, and I just needed to flick each page to find out what was going to happen.

Have you watched the book trailer? Check it out on youtube, you won't regret it.

Everything about this book had me on edge. From the events that start it all, to Edie and John dealing with the aftermath.

I adore Edie. Belittled her whole life, she draws such strength from not just what happens, but from John. What a guy is all I can say about John. I can't get all swoony over him, as I could be his mother! However he is all kinds of amazing.

I don't want to give anything away with this story, but I had a serious book hangover when I finished. I know we throw those words around a bit, but this one was just like the book.

Dark. Broody. Intense.

Buy it. Read it. Love it.

Take it from this old fart, you will not be disappointed.

By LilleyLoohLah TOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 July 2017
Format: Kindle Edition
A full on coming of age drama following a group of nearly 18 year old high school students as they try to navigate life, love, trust, friendship and all the pressures that go with being in high school. Edie is a grade A student who goes to a private all girls school with her best friend for life, she's a little bit on the chubby side and is bullied by the popular 'it' girl, it's been happening for a long time, she just accepts it. Then one fateful night, being a survivor during a convenience store robbery gone drastically wrong, her whole perspective on life changes. Her best friend sells her out and she decides that no one will push her around any more. Standing up for herself she changes schools and becomes fast friends with the one person who knows how it feels to have a brush with death and she makes some life changing decisions. He's the only person she trusts (for now). Following that fateful night, John Cole decides he's through with dealing drugs and he's going to change his future for the better. Between them John and Edie battle the forces against them, together they are stronger, even though so many people don't make it easy for them. Beautifully written with strong characters and all the angst that goes with being a teenager, some fun stories with their friends and family on the side and the chemistry between John and Edie is just perfect. Edie's little idiosyncrasies were so funny. I was hooked, literally from the beginning. The drama starts on the first page and it's pretty much full on for the entire book, I only stopped to eat and drink, oh, and to have the occasional obligatory conversation with the family. Another winner from Kylie Scott. I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Edie gets caught up in a violent convenience story robbery while doing a midnight snack run. John, a high school student and local drug dealer is also in the store at the time of the robbery and tries to talk the robber down.

Following the incident Edie changes schools and discovers John sitting in the seat behind her in class. A friendship develops between John and Edie and we see that while the near death experience has scared John straight, it has done the opposite to Edie. She realises that life can end in an instant and things that once seemed scary or important are less so now.

Trust is told entirely from Edie's point of view but it is John's story as much as it is hers. Their shared experience leads to friendship as they help each other get through life after the trauma.

Trust is a gripping story. At no time did my mind wander or did I get distracted. The story had my complete attention, so much so that walking home from work I pulled out my e-reader while waiting for traffic lights to change, just so I could read an extra paragraph or two. I didn't want to put this book down, and would recommend it to older teens and adults. Trust is brilliant and gets 5 stars from me.

Age recommendation 16+

Kylie Scott is known for her hot adult romances, and Trust marks her first foray into the YA market. I read and really enjoyed her Stage Dive series, in which she creates characters who are warm and funny, and others who are damaged and in need of love, but what they all have in common is that they are real. Trust is no different in that regard.

The initial incident that brings Edie and John to each others attention is a robbery at a convenience store. It's gritty, realistic and horrifying. I was instantly hooked. No longer willing to put up with stares and bullying at her private school, Edie transfers to the local state school. Her mother isn't happy about it, nor is her controlling grandmother, but it's what she needs to do, and so she makes it happen.

On the first day of school she's confronted with memories of the robbery, and the reality of John being at the school. At first the two regard each other with a certain level of aloofness, but it becomes clear that as the only ones who can understand what they went through that night, they share a bond.

Things I particularly loved:

Body positivity - Edie describes herself as a bigger girl, and while she's self conscious at times, there's never any sense that she needs to lose weight to be attractive or to be loved. Those who do fat shame her are called out on it.

Sex positive - Having come close to death, Edie wants to do things she's never done before, which includes having sex. There is no judgment (apart from who she might choose to do that with), no slut shaming of anyone in the book. There's also an acknowledgement of the fact that just because you've done it once, doesn't mean you have to do it again if you're not ready for it, or just don't feel like it. Also, the sex isn't idealised.
