Brinda Berry’s The Shape of Trust is the fifth book in the Stand By Me series. This new adult/college romance was touching, unique, and rife with pieces of drama filled obstacles that need to be overcome. Webb’s character has demons in his past that he has worked to rise above, but yet still allows that to have some type of impact on the decisions he makes now. He comes across as a charismatic and dependable individual, but yet afraid at the same time. Enter Lily. She’s just an amazing character. Of course, she has her own unique challenges in her life, but she works to make sure they don’t define her and attempts to arise above. These two are certainly the opposite of one another, but yet the ultimate mate to one another. Reading these characters’ stories and wondering if they’ll work to gain what they desire and need within their lives was entertaining, emotional and truly well written.
