Trust by Kylie Scott

Trust

4.5 TRUSTED STARS!!!

Being held hostage at gun-point changed Edie Millen’s perspective of the world. She dropped out of the prestigious school she hated and let go of people she don’t need. Edie transferred to public school but unbeknownst to her John Cole also attends the same school. Will their shared experience of that awful night be a way to bridge frienship? Or would an ugly past catch up on them?

I admit I had a hard time seeing Kylie Scott in this YA highschool romance. I was used to rock stars (Stage Dive series) and hot bartenders (Dive Bar series) but I got past it. I fell in love with the story. The intense first chapters hooked me so good, I didn’t put this book down until I get to the end. It was maddeningly beautiful. The pace of the story is what you would expect in any great YA. Everything seems to be happening in slow motion then, boom, the feels will hit you head-on.

I absolutely love Edie and John. I didn’t expect the chemistry between these two. I had doubts whether they’ll work at first but they totally blew me away! From strangers to bestfriends to lovers, I can’t find a single fault in their relationship. I love the cat-and-mouse chase because it was so highschool. *sigh* It made me feel so old though. I was frustrated and impatient for them to go through their issues so they could finally be together. 

Trust delivered a story that is more than I bargained for. As an avid reader of Kylie Scott, you could say I will always love whatever she’ll write. But she went far and beyond the norm by writing Trust. Just because it’s a YA set in highschool it doesn’t mean that the story is any less intense or deep. It was something everyone who went through a rough time can relate to. And I think that’s what makes Trust a beautiful story come to life.

  1. wonderful review!!! And I agree that Kylie Scott wrote outside her regular box with TRUST – I wasn’t prepared for it either – but I fell in love with it and only hope she’ll keep on writing YA.
