The rest of the book deals with the aftermath of that intense scene. I like how the personalities of Edie and John were already established in the beginning. Edie's inner strength can be glimpsed even under duress, and John shows his cool and confidence, and even gives a tiny glimpse of his attraction to Edie. They also establish the rapport that continues throughout the book. Hence, when they talk for the first time after their ordeal, they are not starting off as strangers. The flow of their conversation is not stilted or hesitant as it might be upon first meeting someone. The life and death situation they were in forced them to blow right past that. They forged trust and a bond that would normally take a lot longer to form. It made sense in this case, and it was real and natural. I liked that the author also threw in some friction between them, because they are different personalities who can be expected to clash sometimes. I loved the slow burn between them and how they got to know each other first.
This was a fresh, interesting, and edgy spin on the old good girl/bad boy cliches. I absolutely loved it, and it immediately became one of my favorites. Hang and Anders were also fully realized characters, and the author achieved this by showing their personalities through dialogue. We weren't told what kind of people they are, we were shown it.
I hope this author writes more YA books, because she did a phenomenal job with this one.

Trust. Such a simple word in theory but in reality it means so much. You choose to trust someone to give them a chance, to maybe protect you, stand up for you, but just as that trust is given it can quickly be taken away. Sometimes in a circumstance of life and death, bonds form, trust is given and a relationship that probably may never have come together did because you fate and trust.
This book is different than anything else I have ever read by Kylie Scott. It has more of a Na feel than a YA in my opinion and maybe because it does seem more mature than what I was expecting is why I enjoyed it so much. This isn’t a book about boy meets girl, girl meets boy and they live happily ever after. This book starts off very intense, heart breaking and wondering if you were in that situation who would you ever trust again.
Edie and John survived something terrible, and it changed both of them in extreme ways. I hated what they went through but at the same time it gave Edie a voice and an inner strength I don’t think she would have found if what happened hadn’t happened. John changed in a drastic way as well, the bad boy was wanting to turn his life around he just needed someone to trust him enough to prove that he was worth the effort. The bond and connection they form was one at times that was rocky and almost was ruined, but you can’t help but cheer for them when they slowly start to move to being more. John I thought would disappoint me once or twice but he continued to prove himself.
Trust was emotional, intense and I got hooked into John and Edie’s lives. I wanted happiness for both of them, for a feeling to safety. I do wish the ending wasn’t so abrupt. I don’t know if Ms. Scott plans on writing a book for the secondary characters or not but I hope so.
The story starts out in an intense situation with Edie and John being held hostage in a robbery. Edie living through a life and death situation has her world turned upside down. And the trivial things that used to matter don’t anymore. I can personally attest to this, although my own experience wasn’t so traumatic. But having almost died it really helps you focus on what truly matters.
Edie is a plus size girl, another thing I have in common with her, she changes schools shortly after the robbery/hostage event. John happens to go to that same school and she starts to bond with him. John is the quintessential bad boy, sexy, mysterious and he saved Edie’s life during the robbery. This isn’t an isn’t love story. It is a friendship to love story, but Edie crushed on John almost from the first moment she saw him.
One thing I immensely loved about this story was it brought back that nostalgic feeling of first love. I think I smiled through the entire story. Well once it got past the traumatic part. I loved being reminded of how those butterflies felt, how finding that boy you couldn’t get enough of, who you couldn’t wait to see. It’s part of why I love romance, that I can be reminded of those first love feelings.
I am giving Trust 5 Huge Boundless stars I absolutely loved it!
