The Shape of Trust (Stand By Me, #5)The Shape of Trust by Brinda Berry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Brinda Berry’s Fifth Book In The Stand By Me Series, The Shape Of Trust has been another incredible captivating read from the get go.
This is my second read from this author and even with this being book 5 they can be read as stand-alone and be enjoyed and loved just as much as if read in sequence. I was totally captivated with this read from the moment I started it. I absolutely loved the realness of this story and the plot and issues that are in this book, they are believable and relatable, and most definitely made a change to read about a single dad. I was surprised at how quickly I loved both Webb’s character and Lily’s.
These two have an instant attraction and connection that is undeniable, but is it something both of them can resist? Or will they get their HEA? With emotions running high through this book, it was a book nobody will put down and most certainly pick up and read again! It’s the perfect romance novel for all.

After reading this book I most definitely need to read all the ones I have missed. I can’t wait to see what else Brinda Berry does with this series, if it’s anything like this one you will not be disappointed!

Untrainable by Jamie Schlosser – Review By Chantelle Smith

UntrainableUntrainable by Jamie Schlosser
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love, Love, Love. This book was everything and more.

Untrainable was filled with laughs, banter, passion, romance and a whole lot of brilliance, it was also sweet and emotional and I couldn’t help but love each character. This was captivating and such a wonderful read that I couldn’t rate enough! I absolutely loved everything about this read, this author has a brilliant writing style that totally connects the reader to the storyline and the amazing characters she has created.

This romantic comedy was brilliant from the start, I couldn’t put it down and I read it in one sitting. I was truly captivated with this read and couldn’t put it down, it had me laughing out loud, grinning from ear to ear and even feel some of their pain in certain situations through this book, maybe even a few tears. But this was an amazing comedy romance read that I would read over and over again.
With that being said there were secondary characters in this read that most defiantly deserve their own book such as Aiden I would love to read his story.

But for one thing can we just point out how perfect Hadley & Theo are together, they have an immediate connection that draws us in as readers and each other, they have such a real and raw relationship you can see both of them taking things from each other and helping each other on a journey. I love the reassurance and love Hadley gives Theo that he truly needs, and loved seeing the playful and more confident side to Hadley come out thanks to Theo, they really do bring out the best in each other and I loved reading it!

This is a read not to be missed, and will be loved by all, I cannot wait to see what else this author brings to this series and hope this isn’t the last we read of Hadley & Theo’s story.

What an incredible start to a new series from author Manda Mellett. This read, Paladin’s Hell is book 1 in the Satan’s Devils MC Colorado Chapter and boy oh boy has it been an rollercoaster ride from start till finish. This author has an amazing writing style that pulls you in from the very beginning with the twists and turns, the danger, suspense and action throughout, You will be on the edge of your seat with the incredible plotline and amazing characters that bring passion, romance and an amazing connection.

With this being my first read from this author, I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew I would enjoy it just for the pure fact it was an MC Novel, but this author has opened my eyes to her writing and I can’t wait to see what else she does.
To make this read even better Manda Mellett, has written it in dual POV’s from various characters which make it even better to understand each character, their actions, their feelings. Jayden & Paladin’s story is real, raw, painful and a rollercoaster, but that being said they are connectable, real and strong but can their relationship and connection survive the ups & downs they are about to face?

This is a definite must read, that shouldn’t be missed! I can’t wait for the next one!
