NEW BOOK COVER: Trust by Kylie Scott

Trust

by Kylie Scott

NEW Trust FOR WEB (1)

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.  


What did you think of the new cover?

I kinda squeal when I saw the chucks because it screams John! I love, love it! I think it’s more perfect that the previous cover but I’m still torn if I’ll change the cover in my review. *sigh* It hints a little at the innocence, at the same time the matureness that happened it the story. Welp, I’ll shut up now. I don’t want to spoil anyone!

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 friendship? 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.
