Trust by Kylie Scott
Review: I had a lot of fun reading this new book by Kylie Scott because I have read some of her New Adult books in the past and was curious how a young adult by her would go. And it was good, really good. There were a couple of points in the book that my heart was pounding and I would not let the book out of my sites because I needed to know what was going to happen next. There were also a lot of parts that I was just laughing my butt off about what Edie was saying or going through. Although there were many points that I loved how Edie and John dealt with things going on between them or just by themselves.
I thought this was a great story plot for a main character like Edie because it helped her to step out of her normal zone and just not care about what others think about (or at least not all the time) and with John she was able to come out of her shell even more.
In the end I thought there were some really great messages for anyone who reads the book and loved how they were brought up and dealt with.
I look forward to reading even more books by Scott now, because reading a new adult and a young adult were so great!
“Bullshit, I hissed. Why is there one set of rules for you and another for me? Because I never knew a girl I wanted to look after before. That shut me up.”
“Boxes of condoms stated appearing the very next day. Mom was nothing if not efficient. And she sure as hell couldn’t be described as subtle.In my bathroom, my bedside table, my schoolbag-they were pretty much everywhere.”
Would I? Buy the print copy? Yes. Recommend this book to others? Yes. Do a re-read of the book? Not so sure.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

Summary: 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.
