    4.5 stars- Not your average YA romance

    From the start, reading Trust was like slipping into comfy clothes. Miss Scott has a signature writing style that’s relaxed and colloquial without being sloppy or lacking in descriptive detail. That tone worked wonderfully with the Young Adult genre. The dialogue flowed perfectly and represented the youthful characters well, yet it didn’t feel immature. The plot itself was really interesting. The opening sequence set the stage for a variety of conflicts; and I enjoyed seeing both main characters work though the issues the hold-up caused, as well as those more typical for young adults. I immediately liked the no-nonsense honesty of the heroine, Edie. She was sarcastic and witty, yet very vulnerable. Her growth over the course of the book was admirable considering the myriad of obstacles thrown her way over a short period of time. I really liked John as well, and was surprised at how much depth his character showed as the book progressed. I really appreciated the contrasting and similar ways the hold-up affected John and Edie. It was messy and honest in many ways, and Miss Scott let the characters take their time working through the lingering effects. Of course, it wasn’t just the main characters who were wonderful. Miss Scott has a way of creating the perfect cast of secondary characters that further develop the protagonists, creating a group I would be happy to hang around. As for the romance, it wasn’t rushed in the least, which worked perfectly for Twist’s plot and the lead characters. I liked how organic the connection between Edie and John was. Although they were brought together by a momentous, tragic event, the relationship morphed from friendship to more and never felt disingenuous. This speed not only fit Edie’s character given her lack of experience, but it also gave the characters time to mature before jumping into a relationship. Truthfully, I went back and forth about reading this book. On the one hand, I’m a huge fan of Miss Scott, on the other, YA isn’t really my genre of choice. In the end, my intrigue over this plot coupled with the label of “mature YA” won out. I’m so very glad I didn’t let a genre label deter me this time. Trust was a phenomenal story I think all readers can enjoy, whether they are fans of the YA genre or not. *I received an eARC via Netgalley. The author and promo company had no influence over my review*

    Fantastic!

    Wow! I was not expecting to be pulled into this story so quickly. From the first page, I was hooked! Edie and John were fantastic characters! This was an emotional YA story but it still had some of Kylie Scott's signature humor. I loved every page of this book and I hope this author writes more YA in the future!

    <3 YA for adults

    I was a fan of Kylie's for a few years now when she wrote her adult series - Stage Dive, so of course I added her newest creation to my TBR. Honestly I didn't even read that much into the blurb... I was SOLD! Only after when a friend commented 'I hope you enjoy ya' did I realize that Kylie wrote something different and yet as I was reading it it felt like Kylie through and through. The story had it all soul, heart, humor even if all of it was presented in a ya/na-ish setting. Edie and John are just typical high school teenagers who are thrown together by a tragic incident. Except they are not typical at all because even being young of age what they both go throughout the book an adult would not be able to handle as well. However, thankfully they find each other and understand each other on a completely another level as they both literally survive a convenience store robbery... yep guns and all. Edie as a private school girl has loads of insecurities as do all the teenagers but when the repercussions of the incident change her point of view on things she goes about changing that. Which wowed me to what type of woman Edie will grow up to be if she was so clear minded (although troubled) about how to cope with the aftermath of the robbery. Thankfully, Edie was not alone and had John from the beginning. The child man who didn't have it easy in life but the events of the robbery shake his view of things as well. And once Edie is back in his life he becomes her shadow, her guardian, her sanity... as she becomes same to him in return. Their love story is an epic one in my eyes. I have enjoyed each page of this book either with tears or smiles. This was a different read than what I expect of Kylie but after finishing this I hope she writes more of such connection found in early years. Do not get scared by the YA label. It is written so well and in such mature angle that you do not have to be a teen to enjoy this... or even relate to it. In many instances I kept going 'well I know adults who have recently just learned how to change their perspective in such a profound way' as both Edie and John execute so well. Perhaps those adults are just missing their half to encourage that transition... who knows.

    highly recommend this title

    I adore Kylie Scott books and Trust did not disappoint. Edie is a heroine we all love. Good grades. Good friend. Trustworthy. And yet enough flaws to keep her from being perfect. Readers can relate to her insecurities. John is the bad boy we all lust after. As well as being hot enough to drool over, he’s sensitive and sweet beneath a tough exterior. A traumatic experience throws Edie and John together and begins their bonding experience. The gradual friendship to deeper feelings attraction is always enjoyable to read in a genre where so many romances are insta attractions. The good girl bad boy story is also my favorite. And always, ALWAYS, I’m a sucker for a cast of supportive characters. All of the above is true of Trust by Kylie Scott. I highly recommend this title to anyone who loves romance, especially YA romance and high school settings.

    Beautiful, heart-warming, gripping and emotional.

    Loved it! Beautiful, heart-warming, gripping and emotional. Ms Scott handles this sensitive subject brilliantly with compassion and depth but without it being too dark. I thoroughly enjoyed every page and my heart was put through all the emotions as I became deeply involved in John and Edie's lives. Trust is about experiencing life’s firsts, about picking up the pieces and learning to live again. It is suitable for readers over 16 years
