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 enro

Trust is one of those books that captivated me from the first chapter. I was glued to the pages, my heart was racing, and my palms were sweating. Kylie Scott really put it all out there at the start of this book. I didn’t read the blurb and I did not see that coming at all. I love books that are emotional and intense and this definitely was both of those things.

Edie and John go through something big together. Something that is traumatic and life changing. They help each other get

My favorite read thus far of 2017! Yes, you read it right! lol

I had no plans on reading the whole book. I just wanted to read a chapter or two to see if I was going to enjoy it because it has been a minute since I've read a YA book (I honestly didn't know it was YA when I requested it). Then the next thing I knew the book had ended, I was giddy with how much I fell in love with the characters and story, and then mortified when I saw the time.

This is exactly what I needed. And such an easy read. I loved how John was trying to change his ways and be the good guy, but Kylie still kept his edge and heat, and Edie wasn't the typical heroine, either. She had such great inner dialogue, and the friendship between the girls was so witty and fun to read. YA is my heart, and I'm in love with this one! ...more

It really pains me to say this, but I did not enjoy this book. Kylie Scott is a go-to author for me, she’s written some of my favorite romances ever, but this one fell flat for me.

Trust is about Edie, a seventeen year old who finds herself a hostage in a convenience store robbery. Having just popped in for a few things, the entire encounter changes her life and leads to her decision to leave private school and her so called friends behind and attend public school.

From the moment I heard about Trust I just could not wait to read it and I absolutely loved it. It was just one of those books that reeled me in from the start and kept me enthralled until the very end. I literally could not put this book down, it was one of those books where you know you have to go to bed because you have to wake up early the next day but keep thinking “I’ll just read one more chapter” a
UGH I really really REALLY wanted to love this story more. I love YA and was excited to read Kylie Scott for the first time, seeing as so many book friends enjoy her books. And while there was some sweet moments in here, this overall was lacking.

The writing was very choppy, dry, and not something I'd expect from a seasoned writer like Kylie. This was my first book from her, and I expected the writing to be better, wittier, smarter, more lyrical….just have something that would have pulled me in

An impressive release from Kylie Scott! Very much enjoyed an audiobook of this novel, loved the narrator.

I'm just not quite sure I'd call this as YA (mature YA) O.o It has violence and sex but it's about two people in high school. Should teens be reading this? They grow up so fast these days! >.< I don't know!

TRUST: is a full length standalone romance novel by Kylie Scott. In this we meet Edie Millen and John Cole two college students. Both were held hostage at gun point by a meth head named Chris during a robbery at a convenience store 'The Drop Stop'. Both there for two slightly different reasons, One to seal the deal on a drug drop off, the other to stock up on junk food.

Trust by Kylie Scott is an emotionally gripping, uncut, raw, realistic story of human social interactions. Scott pushes her readers out of their comfort zone to see and feel for her characters. She allowed us to be in their shoes to feel their vulnerabilities, insecurities, fears and love. Trust me when I tell you that this book is a visceral literary tale of raw honesty and second chances.

On any other night, high school seniors Edie and John may never have met. Edie would’ve simply walked into the convenience store, bought her snacks and went on her way to her bff’s house for their movie marathon. John might’ve just sold his herb to the jock from his high school and moved on with his life. As often happens, fate and a tweaking meth head with a gun had other ideas.

The Drop Stop incident, as it came to be known, had a profound effect on both Edie and John. John decided to

With a setting that's as old as time, you'd think this story would be cliche. It just goes to show how powerful Kylie Scott's words are that turned this story into a master piece. I was so drawn in by this story and the characters that I lost complete track of time and swallowed this book whole.

This story is in a high school setting. It's the classic bad boy hottie vs unpopular, overweight girl. She's crushing and he's confused. It should have felt overdone, instead it felt fresh and new. The s

First thoughts: I truly enjoy reading this story but I’m a tad disappointed due to missed opportunities. Some theme could have been dealt differently in my opinion, digging deeper hence the missing one star to score a perfect 5 stars.

Let me explain now.

I absolutely adored Kylie Scott’s Stage Dive series. Yes Kylie can write hot, fun somewhat angsty stories with captivating characters.

If being a teenager girl who didn’t fit the mould wasn’t bad enough, Edie’s high school experience takes a harrowing turn when she held at gun point during a convenience store run. She witnesses violence that she has only seen in movies, but in this reality her hero comes in the most unlikeliest of sources.

Without a shadow of a doubt had it not been for John Edie’s fate would have meet a much different end. Instead of the heroes a reception she expects, he is slapped in handcuffs

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.

TRUST is another one of Ms. Scott's books where she's perfected the art of grabbing the reader right from the first page. It opens with a robbery scene and that alone has the reader flipping pages to see what the outcome of the situation will be. The majority of the book is the aftermath and healing from that life altering experience.

Terror and angst and all their friends were just waiting to party hard in my head.

Where has this side of Kylie Scott been? I have read and enjoyed many of her other books, they were funny with a small side of angst. But 'Trust' is such a departure from the others I’ve read. This was angst with a small side of humor.
It’s a strange thing, though, coming face to face with your own mortality. If someone your own age could die, then what’s saving you?

“Holden Caulfield is a killer!”

This book was a departure from other Kylie Scott books I have read. Trust was a very gritty Young Adult story involving two teens caught up in a convenience store robbery. I loved taking this journey with Edie and John and how each reacted to the trauma and changed as a result. I was whole heartedly engaged in the story, each step along the way.
