Red patches—sores—covered his face, and his teeth were nothing more than rotting stumps. Then I saw the gun in his hand and my heart stopped. Red and blue lights flashed through the filthy windows and I sat stunned, my eyes wide, nothing computing.
It was all moving so fast. The gun wavered and then he turned on the college guy. For one second they stood frozen, one shaking in terror as the other pointed his weapon. Then a loud cracking noise filled the air. College boy fell. It looked like someone had thrown a bucket of crimson paint across the rack of cigarettes. Get back here! Heavy, mud-splattered brown boots smacked against the floor, coming at me.
Oh, no. I had to reason with him, talk him down somehow. But my brain remained stalled, my body shaking. Step by shuffling step we moved forward as he used me as a human shield. I almost tripped on my Pringles, the tube rolling beneath my foot, messing with my balance. His grip tore at my long blond hair, ripping a chunk free. Confianza Kylie Scott.

I know I can waffle. I had no desire to go on to further studies so my parents gave me an alternative…get a job or keep studying.
I was determined and had a job secured before I even finished school. At seventeen, I was finished school, working Trust me At seventeen, I was finished school, working and living like an adult.
Yes, I was still at home, but, I was expected to act and behave like a responsible adult. Which is why I struggle to understand how an eighteen-year-old can sit in a class and have a teacher treat them like a little kid. I tried hard, but I really don't get YA and struggle to see myself in their shoes. The teenage "angsty love" in the school hallways is unfamiliar to me because I went to an all-girls Catholic school.
The eighteen-year-old who has a curfew seems weird. Facing repercussions for sharing an opinion with a teacher seems wrong. As adults, we have repercussions and choices to make but I learnt them a lot younger than eighteen.
I was an adult at eighteen. I did not hide behind my parents if I made a bad decision. I was not sent to the naughty corner to contemplate my bad decisions. If I ran out of money, I did without. That's the way it was I am analysing what I, as a parent, would do if my child went off the rails or was faced with angsty high school drama. What rules will I have in place? Have I taught my kids right from wrong? Have I taught them to respect themselves as well as other around them? Reading YA kind of feels a little pervy and wrong.
While I appreciate and enjoy the story, the romance part is a little harder for me to enjoy. It was well written, dealt with some tough issues and had me feeling a wide range of emotions. Edie and John have faced one of the most horrific experiences and lived to tell the tale.
Both of them came out the other side as different people with a different mindset. One wants to go a little wild and the other wants to take a step back from wild. Hopefully, they meet somewhere in the middle.
To me, that is definitely a sign of success. I liked the characters, found the storyline interesting and never felt frustrated or confused. There are some sexy shenanigans between the main characters as well as some thoughts and chatter about sexual situations.
Trust does deal with death, depression, anger and drug addiction. You see it and you also see the fallout of dealing with it as well.

She witnesses violence that she has only seen in movies, but in this reality her hero comes in the most unlikeliest of sources. Instead of the heroes a reception she expects, he is slapped in handcuffs and led away for questioning.
Nonetheless she is vehement of his innocence. Her backing of him goes a long way and means more to him than she can appreciate. The direct aftermath of the situation leads to some big changes for Edie. One of which is switching schools from private to public. She revels in the short lived anonymity until she comes face to face with her long haired saviour, John. So unique is their experience, she feels bonded to him. Admittedly I felt its momentum slowed down towards the end, but the premise of the story was a good one, with the added bonus of enjoyable secondary characters.

Right from the start this had me hooked, Kylie Scott's writing is so easy to read that I speed through her books. I didn't have any issues with the story, the pacing or even the fact that John was a bit of a player - I did have issues with the amount we had to hear about Edie's size.
I'm all for diversity and encouraging authors to write about curvier women but to me, the whole point is defeated when their size is constantly bought up. It gets on my tits and pisses me off. Also, I didn't particularly like Edie. John, I did like. The mix of man-boy whore and sweet protector didn't quite mesh but still, he had his swoony moments. And as with her other books, the side characters were strong and leave you hoping for their story next.
Overall, enjoyable but felt a little rushed. Edith Millen aka Edie is a 17 yr. One evening life as she knows it is forever altered when a routine stop at the local convenience store ends with her being held hostage at gun point by the town meth-head. Nearly dying changed her. Done with the snotty kids at her school Evie decides she wants to transfer to the local public high school to finish out the year.
Now she doesn't care what people think of her. On Edie's first day at her new school she crosses paths with the boy who risked his life to save her. He was a complete stranger but she still felt an odd connection to him. While Edie was finally spreading her wings, John was trying to settle down a bit. He had a bad boy, troublemaker reputation as the ex-drug dealer. Edie realizes John is the only one she can talk to about that night. He understood her because he lived through it too.
They become best friends. Soon Edie develops a major crush on her gorgeous friend and has intense feelings for him. When she's with John she's happy. There are so many firsts she's yet to experience. When John helps her with one of those firsts things get complicated between them. She tries to keep him in the friend zone, but can't quit replaying his lips on hers. She wants them to be more, but isn't sure what she means to him. John thinks he's bad for Edie.
He doesn't want to bring her down, but real feelings are growing. Soon he's consumed with thoughts of Edie, but when danger finds them again can they survive twice?
I really loved this book! It has action, a hot, swoony, bad boy, and lots of emotion. It was a fabulous read! Every part of him. Jul 14, Lo Bookfrantic rated it really liked it Shelves: arc-review-ng , f-br , young-adult , high-school. That night will be one he most definably would never forget. Ever since, he decided to change how he was living and decides to get better grades and get a job. He soon discovers that Edie had transferred to his public school recently after that night.
John and Edie have more in common then what they think. Where Edie is tortured by bullies due to her weight, John is the popular one and good looking. The experience of that night has brought them together now and they seem to understand each other so much so then they could have imagined.
After realizing they share English class together; they start to develop a very close friendship. I particular loved this book for that reason. Their friendship felt so real and fantastic; John was ahhhhh he was dreamy, protected and he seemed genuine to me. He would understand and knew exactly what Edie needed without her telling him. With John, Edie was able to enjoy herself without feeling uncomfortable.
He made her feel normal. She couldn't understand that someone with such a great popularity and great looking could even notice her even as a friend. The chemistry was not there it was mainly friendship up until much later towards the end of the book. Still I really enjoyed the story; the side characters were fantastic. John was such an amazing hero; I loved how protected he was and how he cared for Edie.
The story is full of sarcasm, funny scenes, and it will be appealing to readers who enjoy young adult high school stories. I had only read one book by her, but when I saw that she was experimenting in the YA genre, my curiosity was piqued.
And that synopsis? Forget about it, I was sold at the get go. What do you do when your life abruptly narrows down to a moment, when your next breath could be your las Title: Trust Series: Standalone Author: Kylie Scott Release date: July 18, Cliffhanger: No HEA view spoiler [Yes hide spoiler ] I'm one of those odd, rare creatures who hasn't devoured Kylie Scott's entire backlist. What do you do when your life abruptly narrows down to a moment, when your next breath could be your last?
A simple late night convenience store run for junk food turns into a life altering, senseless tragedy. In those terror filled moments, she discovered with crystal clarity how fragile life could be. Death was a stone, dragging me deep. It was all now, here, today. How do you come back from the trauma of seeing innocent people die right before your eyes at seventeen years old?
How do you go back to the person whose biggest problem was dealing with bullying by mean girls for your weight? The answer? You can't. Returning to her private school after summer ended, she realized that she wouldn't sit back quietly and allow the daily abuse that was served to her.
Their opinions suddenly seemed inconsequential and she wasn't affording them any more headspace. In fact, she was done with the snobby, privileged kids at her school so she insisted on moving to the public school. She thought she wouldn't know a soul there, but to her shock, one of her new classmates was none other than John Cole.
Edie had nothing in common with him, and didn't expect him to acknowledge her presence despite their violent meeting. He was at the top of the school popularity stratum, and a bad boy who could get any girl he crooked his finger at. End of story. But she underestimated the bond that was forged that night at the Drop Shop.
He did seek her out, because she was the only one who could understand what he had been going through. And while John was inspired to give up selling drugs and try to improve himself, Edie was becoming the rule breaker. As much as I enjoyed these two, I think having John's POV would have been a huge help in feeling more invested in their romance.
I liked them together enough, I just didn't love them. I felt like there was something missing for me. The beginning of the book drew me in with that very intense scene, and then the middle seemed to to drag more than I would have liked. I needed more push to keep the momentum of the story moving forward faster.
The last scene had another exciting climactic moment that I really loved, but unfortunately it ended in an abrupt manner followed by a bland epilogue. The entire conclusion seemed more like an afterthought rather than a significant conclusion to their conflicts. Based on everyone else's excitement, this is most likely entirely a me thing. Don't let my personal issues prevent you from giving this one a go. Trust was an original story about two teens trying to make sense of their lives after surviving a life or death situation together.
I'd recommend this to not just YA lovers, but those looking for something much different than what's out there. Beautiful cover, captivating story, and brilliant writing. That sums up this book in a nutshell. Kylie Scott exceeds expectations again! She not only witnesses, but experiences tragedy first hand. The events of the night have a profound effect on her life and future in the most unexpected ways. What I loved : All the feels were felt! You feel the experiences.
You root for them. You hurt for them. You become completely engaged in the story. The writing is exceptional is usual. Trust is witty, funny, engaging, and heart-wrenching. The highs and lows of the action are expertly handled. The characters are true to life.
I loved that. Getting to know John and Edie was a real treat. Through all their trials and tribulations, they become stronger together. Trust is a story about resilience and overcoming the odds.
The best and worst of the condition is put on display without the novel feeling the downer. Overall , I'm so happy I had the pleasure of reading this amazing story.
