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.

I've read a few of Scott's books now, and the way this book started... just wow! I wasn't expecting that much intensity and my heart ached for all the characters involved. I could see that it would bring Edie and John together in some way. Even after the incident, Edie continued to feel the effects and lost trust in someone she considered close.

I thought she had a lot of grunt, deciding to start over in a new school. She made a few friends quickly, and wasn't that timid girl she used to be. She stood up for herself and didn't hold back. She became close with John, as he started a new, clean path in life. Their connection strengthened a long the way, although they faced their own trust issues. They had a bond that no one could understand, and heir feelings often messed things up between them.

I liked that Edie had a little spunk, and kind of rebelled, doing things she wouldn't usually do after what she went through. She decided she wanted to do more in her life and to experience things that she'd put off for later, so John helped her with a few of these. And of course she wanted to explore her sexual side, so I could see that the lines were going to blur between them.

I liked the change in John, even though he tried to keep to himself. He changed his life and grew into a strong young man. He looked after Edie, whether she needed him or not.

Kylie Scott has a way of drawing readers into her worlds, creating unique characters that touch you in some way. The supporting characters were developed well too, and I am keen to see more of them. Trust was a read that will be on my mind for a long time, it was powerful, sweet, intense and beautiful. 

A sweet moment and a yummy kiss... enjoy!

“Relax,” he said, flipping through the pages. “It’s fine. You’re making too big a deal out of this.”
“Bullshit,” I hissed. “Why is there one set of rules for you and another for me?”
“Because I never knew a girl I wanted to look after before.” That shut me up.

His mouth slammed down on mine, stealing my breath. Warm, firm lips, and the thrill of his tongue tracing my teeth before sliding against my own. Kissing had never felt so good. Sure as hell, no half-assed fumbling in the shadows with other boys could compare. John’s technique deserved the highest of praise, but the best I could do was moan. My hands slipped beneath his shirt, exploring his skin, laying claim.
