Review: Trust by Kylie Scott

Title: Trust
Author: Kylie Scott
Series: N/A
Purchase: Amazon

Summary (from Goodreads):
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.

Review:
Ask my friends – leading up to ApollyCon 2017, the author I was most excited to meet was Kylie Scott. Not just because she seems like a cool chick, but her writing is everything. She seamlessly blends humor with heat, snarky with sexy. She’s hands down one of my favorite authors, and when I found out she was foraying into the Young Adult world with TRUST, I was all over this.

What I loved most was that Edie and John are hopelessly flawed. It’s not a pretty love story with a meet cute and a little teasing before they fall in love. Their first meeting involves a hostage situation and a tweaked out robber with a trigger happy finger. It’s tense and heartbreaking and vicious.

Edie is a heroine I wished I could have had read about growing up. Edie is me (minus the hostage situation and super hot bad boy savior). Edie is overweight, fluent in snark and sarcasm, and much better at faking who she wants people to think she is than actually being herself. She’s not Katniss, hurling herself in front of a firing squad to protect people or Tris trying to take down an evil empire or even Bella, stupidly bumbling her way through a world she doesn’t understand. She’s Edie and Edie is imperfect and a little broken but with a mountain of heart. In short, she’s most of us.

I absolutely adore Kylie Scott and she did not disappoint me at all with TRUST. So give it a chance. Trust me. 😉
