Flesh By Kylie Scott 99 cents!
Flesh - Kylie Scott

Ali has been hiding in an attic since civilization collapsed eight weeks ago. 

When the plague hit, her neighbors turned into mindless, hungry, homicidal maniacs.

Daniel has been a loner his entire life. Then the world empties and he realizes that being alone isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Finn is a former cop who is desperate for companionship, and willing to do anything it takes to protect the survivors around him.

When the three cross paths they band together; sparks fly, romance blooms in the wasteland and Ali, Daniel and Finn bend to their very human needs in the ruins of civilization.

Lust, love and trust all come under fire in Flesh as the three battle to survive, hunted through the suburban wastelands.

Chaser
Chaser - Kylie Scott Chaser proves that fate has a sense of humor. Why does the right thing, happen at the wrong time? That's the irony we call life. Chaser though not always funny is good for a few laughs. Ms. Scott delivers wisdom with a wry sense of humor and a hearty dose of reality. She prides herself on not being too serious, but always being right on time.

Twist (Dive Bar)
Twist (Dive Bar) - Kylie Scott Hmmmph.

I feel like the hero was "great." Steady, teddy bear, just fine. Clearly a cool, chill dude...but that's...it.

This is by far the weakest of Kylie Scott's books for me. The heroine was strange and hard to identify with, and frankly I couldn't get over her referring to her trans best friend as "him," discussing a story pre-transition, but saying Val interchangeably during that story. If she identified as female, then maybe just say "she?" Sorry, maybe nitpick, and so besides the point...

It was also weird, the couple discussed trying new stuff and suddenly it felt like they were banging. I was wondering if I fell asleep for a little bit (I'm being serious here, I was sleep-reading late last night- WE all do it right? Doze off then wake up to read a couple sentences, repeat.). I tried a couple times to figure out if it felt out of the blue, and it still did. Someone can call me on that, for I may not be the most reliable.

Totally unlike Kylie Scott, there were some weird plot devices to create Alex's outsider status, which she did totally fine on her own. She liked sex a whole whole lot but hated strangers, even though that's all she'd ever done before...She hated rejection and feared it but did crazy things showing up out of the blue and refusing to leave. Her character was inconsistent for me and it was confusing.

And disappointingly, my heart didn't start pounding till Jimmy from Lead showed up with toddlers in tow and that lasted about 6 words.

In sum, I'm disappointed.

Adjustment
Lick - Kylie Scott

 Evelyn had plans for Vegas.  She was going to find a hot guy and lose her virginity all over again.  That is not exactly what went down.

 

David has been through a lot.  As a famous rockstar, he gets what he wants.  Only this time, what he wants may walk away.  

 

This is a great story about true love and how is can happen quickly.  I loved the characters and their interaction.  Even the other characters in Stage Dive series are funny and worth reading.  I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Trust - Kylie Scott

Trust


I am not an avid reader of the Young Adult genre, but this book kept calling my name. To be honest, it had nothing to do with the author as my experience with her was limited, having only read one book written by her. The synopsis was the driving force behind my decision to read Trust by Kylie Scott.

This story differs from anything I have read before. Its unique storyline sucked me in and if it were not for my busy work schedule, I would have finished it sooner than I did. It tells the story of two high school students who were brought together because of a tragic event which would forever change their lives. Trust is a coming of age story that embraces the themes of friendship, love, drug addiction and fat shaming.

The title aptly fits the story as this was what Edie was forced to do when she found herself in the middle of a hostage situation involving a crazed drug addict. Placing her trust in a complete stranger was the last thing on her mind when she went to purchase snacks in the middle of the night dressed in nothing but her PJs and flip-flops. Her fear at that moment was palpable. She had no idea if she would get out alive. However, in the midst of all the chaos, she discovered she was not alone. There was a guy, a teenager like herself, who went above and beyond to secure her safety. The two found themselves bound to each other through shared memories of a night they would both prefer to forget.

The highlight of the story for me was the unlikely friendship that developed between John and Edie. They never expected to see each other again after that fateful night. However, Edie’s decision to change schools led to their paths crossing once again. Theirs was a friendship borne out of tragedy, but it would provide them with the healing they both needed. Despite the challenges faced, their friendship developed to the point where lines became blurred and so not only do they have to deal with painful memories, they have to figure out if their feelings for each other were real.

I admired Edie for her strength of character. She refused to be labelled a victim. Her body was on the plump side and she faced constant shaming as a result, but she did not allow the hateful remarks define her. She accepted herself the way she was, and no intention of changing to please others. In spite of this, there were moments when her insecurities would rear its head, especially around John. Not only is she a fighter, she is caring and funny.

I loved how John was with Edie. His need to protect her extended beyond that fateful night. John has his share of struggles, however, he always finds time for Edie whenever she needed him. They were protective of each other and they had each other’s back at all times. I loved that John saw beyond her plumpness and accepted all of her.

The secondary characters played their part in making this story shine. They provided enough laughter to balance out the pain, fears and angst.

I did have a few issues with the story, but it did not take away from my enjoyment.

I thought the situation with John and his brother could have been handled better. The whole scenario was rushed and lacking in details.

The story was told primarily from Edie’s POV. It would have been great to be privy to John’s inner thoughts and feelings. My knowledge of his struggles and feelings were gained from Edie’s perspective. I believe that having the story from John’s POV would have made the story that more realistic, especially as it relates to their romance. Edie’s feelings for John were obvious based on her inner dialogue, but it was difficult discerning how John’s true feelings.

I expected more information in regards to Edie’s feelings after the traumatic incident. I understood why she had trouble sleeping, but the other aspects did not ring true for someone who stared death in the face.

Recommendation/Conclusion
In spite of the issues, Trust is an enjoyable read and fans of the YA genre and Kylie Scott will fall in love with this book.
