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.
This book was utterly captivating, sweet, sexy, emotional, and heartfelt! I don't read a lot of YA romances but this one, was too easy to LOVE and enjoy. Kylie Scott wrote the kind of romance I got swept away in. Edie and John are just too sweet together. Their romance was slow, kind, caring, and crackled with heat. I loved John! He made me wish I had that kind of guy in high school. He was ridiclously hot, almost a bad boy type of man, with a surprisingly caring and protective side that just stole my breath and melted my heart. Edie is a beautiful CURVY young woman who is kind, sweet, shy, and just easy to like. I thought these two wonderful characters just fit wonderfully in a relationship.
After reading this amazing story, I really HOPE that Miss Scott writes more YA romance because I WILL be wanting more! This one was just too AMAZING and perfectly romantic with loads of other things going on that just kept me glued to my ereader. I am infatuated with it!
Trust gets a SUPER AMAZING FIVE SHOOTING STARS!
