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.
Kylie is a long time fan of erotic love stories and B-grade horror films. She demands a happy ending and if blood and carnage occur along the way then all the better. Based in Queensland, Australia with her two children and one delightful husband, she reads, writes and never dithers around on the internet.
Kylie is represented by Amy Tannenbaum at the Jane Rotrosen Agency, New York.
I’m not sure why but I thought Kylie Scott’s latest release, Trust was part of her Dive Bar series (I might just automatically purchase her books without reading their blurbs). So it came as a complete shock when I started reading to find a story completely different than I anticipated but sweet Jesus… for one afternoon Edie and John’s world became my everything and their book exceeded all of my expectations. Their story blew me away.
Trust is Edie and John’s journey about learning to heal after their faith in humanity is rocked. A tragedy not only puts them into one another’s lives but it also changed who they are to their core. As they struggle through the aftermath, they discover a friendship and later a love that further bonds them to one another.
It’s a fierce and powerful story that left me raw and emotional. I was completely enthralled by the heartache and passion that the author injected into these two characters lives. I was completely consumed by every moment in their story.
Trust was an excellent reading experience and one that I believe everyone should one-click themselves into. I absolutely adored this book and I’m glad it was on my summer reading list.
