After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, 17-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.

YA Romance BRILLANCE!!
I'm a big fan of Kylie Scott's contemporary romances AND I love YA romance so I couldn't wait for the release of Trust. IT WAS EVERYHING I HOPED IT WOULD BE.
The story is a slow burn. Taking time to build the relationship, the TRUST. It included the right amount of everything a YA romance should angst, uncertainty, fear, hope, friendship and letting go of your inhibitions.
Now for the best part...Kylie brings her hot, steamy tasteful adult sex scenes to YA BRILLANTLY! She has written the most realistic and honest "first time" scene I have EVER experienced in a YA book. I have been waiting a long time to see this done right and Kylie nails it (no pun intended)! And the shower scene is...well...all I can say is WOW! It hit so many firsts I remember as a YA. All that said, I do recommend this for the slightly older YA 14-15+.
I was a bit surprised that Andi Arndt was narrating this book. I love Andi and Trust was my 6th Andi Arndt narrated book this year. Andi does mostly adult romance so I did have to switch gears a bit and remember I was in a YA book. But as Andi never fails to do, she won me over about mid way through the book with her smooth delivery and with all the right feels in all the right places. There were some production glitches in the first 1/2 of the book but it all cleared up by the second 1/2 half.
HIGH RECOMMEND...Stick with the slow beginning, it is soooo worth it in the end! This is a standalone so no cliffhanger ending, no waiting for the second book.

I love Kylie Scott’s Dive series and was interested to see how she would execute a YA story. I liked TRUST but I didn’t love it. It fell a bit short on the romance side but I liked how John was protective over Edie. I also didn’t feel the sparks between John and Edie either, and I think it would have been good to have chapters from his POV so that I could understand how the robbery had also affected him, and also see how his feelings had evolved for Edie.
