Review & Excerpt Blitz – Trust By Kylie Scott

 

 

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.

My Review –

 

 

5 Believe In Me Stars!!

 

 

 

 

*I volunteered to review a Copy of this book from InkSlinger PR*

 

 

Thank you so very much InkSlinger PR!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! 🙂

 

Having read Ms.Scott’s work many times before I couldn’t wait to dive into this one!! Oh how I loved this coming of age tale!! It took me by surprise in the best way possible. I was glued to my kindle from the first few pages to the very end. It touches on subjects that I’m not used to seeing in books which I found to be so very refreshing. I really connected with Edie from the start and I wished I could jump into my kindle so I could be her friend because she’s that dang amazing.

 

Trust isn’t like any other YA Novel or any other novel for that matter. I felt EVERYTHING. It had my heart racing with fear for the characters, it shattered me with the harshness of others thoughts, I was given hope, I experienced that first taste of rebellion, the sweetness of a new love, What it means to fight for yourself, and I realized that those unexpected moments in life – Well, they can change it all.

 
Ms.Scott you blew me away with Edie and John’s amazing story!! You gave a voice to the teenage heart. The beauty you showed through all of their pain really struck me and I’ll keep that with me always. I hated what they went through but man their journey is one so worth taking. I adored the sides they brought out in each other. The secondary characters especially Hang and Anders were awesome. I am so looking forward to reading what she comes up with next!! 🙂

 
If you haven’t already One-Clicked, What are you waiting for exactly?!?! Get It Today!! Believe me you do NOT want to miss out on this one. It truly took my breath away and made me feel as if my heart was getting a hug if that makes any sort of sense. This is one of my favorite novels this year!! Also, whenever I see a window from now on I’ll think of this story (If you’ve read it you know why) . I hope you love this one as much as I did my fellow book lovers!! 5 Stars all around!! 🙂

“You were going to give it up to Duncan Dickerson?” he sneered. “Are you serious?”

I halted, staring at him. This was not good. “How do you know about that?”

“Anders overheard you and Hang talking.”

“Bastard.”

“Well?” he demanded, acting all authoritarian. Idiot.

“To be fair, I didn’t know his last name was Dickerson,” I said. “That’s unfortunate. Though, I wasn’t actually planning on marrying him, so . . .”

“Not funny.”

I shrugged.

“You barely know the guy.”

“Um, yeah. None of your concern. We’re not talking about this.” How mortifying! My face burned bright. People should just gather around and cook s’mores. “I appreciate that we’re friends. You mean a lot to me. But this is going to have to fall under definitely none of your damn business, so go away please.”

“We’re talking about it.” He advanced a step.

“No we are not.” And I retreated.

“You were going to let a complete stranger touch you.” Advance.

Retreat. “People do it all the time. You do it all the time.”

“But you don’t,” he said, taking the final step, backing me up against the side of his car and getting all in my face. “Edie, this is your first time we’re talking about. Isn’t it?”

“Yes, and it’s going to be messy and painful and probably horribly embarrassing and I just want it over and done with.” I tried to meet his eyes but failed, settling for a spot on his right shoulder. “You’re not a girl; you wouldn’t understand. Also, last time I checked, you’re not the gatekeeper of my hymen, John Cole. So back the fuck off.”

He said nothing.

Deep, calming breaths. “Look, someday I’ll meet someone I really like and we’ll have a deep and meaningful relationship and go at it like bunnies. But I don’t want to be the dumb virgin in that scenario.”

He slowly shook his head.

“Also, I do not want to die a virgin.”

“What? What the hell are you talking about?”

“Hey, you and I both know death can occur at any time.”

“This is crazy.”

“I’m seeing a therapist!” I told his shoulder. “I don’t know if you noticed, but I’m a little bit messed up these days. It’s hard for me to trust people. That’s not going to change anytime soon.”

He screwed up his face at me. “Wha—”

“I’m just trying to be practical.”

“Well, you’re being ridiculous. None of this makes sense.”

“It does to me.”

Again, he said nothing.

In fact, he said nothing for so long that I finally looked him in the eye. The anger had left him, replaced by an emotion I didn’t recognize. Worst of all, he still smelled like summer. A little sweat and the open night air, everything I loved. Liked. I meant liked.

“What?” I said, finally.

He let loose a breath. “I’ll do it.”
