The Shape of Trust (a Stand By Me novel Book 5) by Brinda Berry – Review by Elizabeth Sanchez

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Shape of Trust is the 5th book in the Stand by Me Novel series by Brinda Berry, but it is the first of her books I have read. That being said, it can be read as a stand alone novel. I didn’t read the prior books, and I still thoroughly enjoyed it. The story is about a rich business owner, Webb, who suddenly discovers he has a daughter. Not only did he discover this when she was 5, but she was basically dropped off on his door step and he is left to figure things out. He know nothing about parenting, but quickly feels the parental bond and the need to protect her. An employee he has been crushing on, Lily, offers to help him. She quickly turns from bookstore employee to nanny and makes the transition seamlessly. She is great with kids, having taken care of her siblings, but also uses the opportunity to her advantage. Webb is forced to spend time with her, and she pushes their relationship to the next level. The characters have good chemistry, but the book is definitely more than just romance. It touches on feelings of love, trust, and friendship. I was hooked and will read more from this author moving forward.

4 out of 5 Stars

This new aged adult romance novel is a fun, easy paced book about growing into yourself and moving past old expectations and learning from past mistakes.
Webb and Lily and two wonderfully diverse characters who are perfect;y opposite. Webb was a wild man. A man who lived large and partied harder. He has a fortune from busting his butt to get to the top and now the party scene just isn’t as appealing as it use to be.
Lily. Her sweet soul. She is just trying to make the best of what life has given her. It hasn’t always been easy for Lily. School was difficult because of a learning disability and she is just trying to establish herself in this cruel world.
This is where Webb meets Lily. Webb’s 5 year old daughter is thrust into his life and its sink or swim time for him. Luckily, Lily is a lifeboat.
The banter between these two is hilarious. The author crafted an amazing story. I loved reading this story from cover to cover and was left breathless when it ended. A absolutely beautiful story.

The Shape of Trust is the fifth book in Brinda Berry’s Stand By Me series. I have read EVERY SINGLE ONE of them so you can imagine I was pretty impatient while waiting to get my hands on this one! I guess you could read the story as a standalone (I did start with the 2nd book) but I have learnt that you actually get more out of the series by reading them in order as you get the references!
The Shape of Trust is the story of Webb Walters and Lily Rose and it starts at the bookstore that we learnt to love in the previous book of the series. You cannot believe the connection that is there between Webb and Lily, the struggle that Webb goes through to not give in to it … And let’s not forget about the surprise he gets when his five year old daughter is dropped at his door step, well at the book store, one rainy night … from a bachelor with a past into an insta-dad with no clue … and then there is Lily who struggles with her day to day life, who is like a little fairy that all the kids flock to and fall in love with and who drives in to save the day and brings the temptation even closer …
The writer has given us two great characters that struggle with real problems and I love the way she shows us what our potential path could be!

The Shape Of Trust, A Stand By Me Novel Book 5, by Brinda Berry. I have read other books by this author, so when I saw this book, I just knew that I had to read it.
What would a guy do when he has to go from living the life all single guys want, to having a cute as a button five year old to take care of???? Can he go from partying and living life to taking care of his daughter that he never knew about. Throw in a quirky, sexy nanny……. this book is everything I was looking for and much much more. The chemistry, love and emotions in this book had me on the edge of my seat waiting for what was going to happen next. I can not wait for more books by this fabulous author!!!

Great story of love in both the romantic and family ways. The love of siblings was a great addition to the story of two characters coming together. I really felt a connection to the character Lily, even I didn’t have the hard life as she did, I still felt connected to her because the way she felt about her siblings is the way I feel about my sister. I would do anything for her and she would do anything for me. The way Lily fought to get herself together so she could take care of them was amazing, as sadly not a lot of people would do that. And adding the fact that she found her true love in the middle of this was amazing. I loved that she got a happy ending as well did Webb. Definitely, recommend reading.

The Shape of Trust (a Stand By Me novel Book 5) by Brinda Berry​ is wonderfully sweet story. Brinda has done a great job of writing wonderful characters that take a hold on your heart. Her​ writing style is captivating and makes it one book you are unable to put down. It is a wonderful romance story that you can’t get enough of.

Lily is such a quirky character she will have you going through an array of emotions as we wade through her no so good life. That is until she meets someone who steals her heart but does he even notice her in that way? She is caring and most compassionate person, always looking out for others, but who looks out for her?

Web finds himself enamored with the new girl but all that needs to stay locked away as he is confronted with the biggest thing to ever happen to him. Something from his past, something he knew nothing about until now. Something that will forever change his life and now that he has it he will not let it go.

I really look forward to reading more in this series. I love it.

I absolutely LOVED this book. I kept turning the page hoping it would never end. The writing, storyline, and characters were flawless.

Lily is finally at a job that she enjoys plus it helps when you have a crush on the boss. As time goes on the chemistry between Lily and Webb (the boss) was undeniable but when things start to really get going for the couple, Webb finds himself with a daughter. His new priority is this little girl and things need to be pushed off with Lily.

I loved how heartfelt this book really was. You are able to really feel and understand the emotions of the characters. Such a beautiful story and I cannot wait for more!

The shape of Trust is book #5 in the Stand by Me series written by Ms. Berry. It is a great read and page turner that I didn’t put it down. The plot was great and different. The characters are well developed and I also enjoyed the secondary characters, the way they played off on each other was hilarious.
Lily is hired at the bookstore to help out while Josie is on maternity leave. This is where she meets Webb. She loves her new job and she is falling for her boss. But she has a secret.
Webb has walked on the wild side and fed his addictions. He finally has his life together when he finds out he has a daughter that he never knew about. What does he know about raising a little girl, but she needs him he can’t fail her, he won’t fail her…
When Josie goes back to work Lily’s hours are cut so she offers to help him out. He has to admit she has a way with kids. She also has a way with him. She gets him going even without her trying. But he has secrets too… She’s too young for him, too sweet and trusting. Will he give into his desires or keep a distance?
Can these two people over-come their secrets?

I highly recommend this book…

The Shape of Trust was a fantastic read! I have read all but one of the books in this series and each one I have absolutely loved. From the very first page until the last I am lost in the story and characters that this wonderful author has created. As with the other books in this series I fell in love with the characters almost instantly – there is just something about them, they are always genuine and down to earth and you just want to keep reading about them. I really liked Lily; she had that quirky quality that I have come to love from this author’s characters. I loved her determination in life and I really wanted her to succeed in everything she wanted.
I liked Webb and thought that he and Lily did have this great connection. I admired Webb for turning his life around and how he dealt with the unexpected news of a daughter that he never knew he had.
Again, this was another fantastic story in this series that I 100% recommend! I look forward to more from Ms Berry again in the future!

This is my kind of book, it is sexy but mostly has story and build up. This story made my heart ache and smile at the same time. All of the characters are fantastic and very well written.

Webb is a great man, he is wealthy and accomplished but has his fair share of demons. When his daughter is thrust into his life unexpectedly he is freaked out but I think it started a change in him. He suddenly becomes very protective of her and Lily and having her in his life has stirred up emotions he didn’t think he would have.

Lily, bless her heart, is trying her best to make the crappy life she has work for her and her siblings, on top of that she has her own secrets she tries to keep away from the ones she loves, namely Webb. She is fiercely protective of her younger brother and sister as her mom can’t be bothered to care for them herself. Her older brother is in some hot water with drugs and keeps bringing his issues around his siblings which in turn puts them in danger and that really makes Lily’s blood boil. Lily wants to forget her messed up life and be in Webb’s pretty world but their two worlds eventually have to collide.

Overall a fantastic book, I wish it was longer, but I guess that is how anyone would feel with a book they enjoy! The ending is perfect and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves romance and drama.
