My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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 is book five in the Stand By Me series by Brinda Berry. I am fascinated by this author’s twist of words.  How they intricately intertwine to deliver an impeccable romance story.

Webb is a cheeky character with charisma and class. He is also a human that has his scars to wear. He has turned his life around, but never expects to become an instant dad. He takes to the role naturally, and was a joy to get to know. Out of his element, he gains the assistance of Lily, who he is insanely attracted to. Lily made me want to wrap her up, protect her from the world’s ugliness and spoil her rotten. She is exceptionally selfless and honourable, both qualities that I admire and applaud. She knows no limit to her kindness, and is not afraid to share how much her people mean to her.

The Shape of Trust was an profoundly excellent story that I could not put down. Captivating and stimulating, I cannot recommend this book enough. High praise for this story and its author. 5 stars.

The Shape of Trust (a Stand By Me novel Book 5) By Brinda Berry. Once again I’m completely hooked by one of the Stand By Me stories. This author just has a way of writing a story that completely drags me in and I lose sleep over because I just can’t put it down. Webb and Lily may have just stolen my heart with their story. Webb lived a wild life but now he’s responsible for more than just himself but luckily for him Lily may be just what he needs. Watching these two grow and interact throughout this story was fun. It’s well written and paced nicely. With characters you can connect with and root for. I can’t wait to read more from this amazing author. I’m giving this book a five star review and highly recommend it.

The Shape of Trust-Brinda Berry

5-stars

The Shape of Trust is a phenomenal romance read told with so much detail by the incredible Brinda Berry. This book is the 5th book in the Stand By Me series, a series that can be read as standalones. Yet with that being said they are all definitely worth a read!

Lily and Webb’s story is sweet, romantic, heartfelt, steamy and emotional, their story is my all time favorite by this author. All of the detail made it so easy for me to connect with these characters and to feel invested in them and their happiness. The storyline flowed so well, with the perfect build up of emotions. I enjoyed everything about this book.

I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for their next romance read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Shape of Trust by Brinda Berry is book five of the Stand by Me Series. This book can be read as a standalone.

Lily really needs a job so the job at the bookstore was perfect. She didn’t expect Webb or the feelings she would develop for him. When he needs help with his daughter, Lily offers her help. She loves kids and this gets her more time with Webb.

Webb has messed up a lot in life. He can’t afford to mess up where his daughter is concerned so agreeing to Lily’s offer of help while a tough choice was a no brainer.

Both Webb and Lily have their secrets. Will their secrets and the past threaten the future they hope to build?

I absolutely loved this book. There were some unexpected turns but I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! Lily is so strong and independent. She’s found a way to push through and keep moving forward with life when it would have been so easy to make a few different choices. Webb has overcome something not a lot of people can overcome. These characters together are great. I absolutely recommend this book!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Shape of Trust is the fifth book in the Stand By Me series by Brinda Berry. This single dad, age gap slow burn romance will keep you on the edge of your seat till the very end. Josie and Webb have some amazing chemistry and with the slow burn, the anticipation of them getting together was so worth the wait. Webb’s five-year-old daughter stole the pages whenever she was on them, I think I was laughing every time she opened her mouth, you never knew what she was going to say next. I am not going to give much away about this book; I am going to tell you that you need to read it and this series. This is only my second book of the series that I have read and both were really good.

The Shape of Trust (Stand by Me #5)
By Brinda Berry
Rated 5 stars

This is another super book in the Stand By Me Series. I have read quite a few of this series. This is a interesting one that deals with some tough decisions for both characters. It was all blended well together. I liked each of the main characters and the story was good. The connection between Webb and Lily was very believable. I enjoyed their time together as much as they did. Learning, talking and laughing. That kissing!?!? Meltdown!

Webb has struggles in his life but his most recent is staying away from Lily who he considers “too young” for him. When he hires her for a job the struggle is harder because being around her all the time makes him only think of one thing. When they talk about the physical ”age” difference vs the mental one it’s mentioned by Lily that:

“ It’s not the days that make up a life, you know. It’s the experiences.”

I thought that was so profound. Great line!

I struggled with his daughter sometimes because a 5yo would not be okay with her grandma leaving her with someone she doesn’t know. ….and not crying for her mom all the time. That just seemed weird. She acts like she is perfectly fine living with a man she has never seen. Plus the words she uses and actions make her seem older than her age. I just wish this would Have been addressed at least for a little bit. Then have her adjust to her new life. She is a cute addition to the story so I can fault for that addition.

Again this is not my first book by this author. It is probably my second favorite of the series. I like that the author doesn’t shy away from real problems and uses them to show how people can move forward in life.

The Shape of Trust by Brinda Berry is the fifth book in the Stand by Me series. This book does not need to be read in order.
This is the first book I read of this series and I can see why people are raving about it. Everything about the book is so well done you just find yourself sinking deeper into the story.
The characters were fantastic to read about. They are complex and interesting and match the story perfectly. The way the author brings them to life is brilliant to see and adds a different level to the book.
I have read other books by this author and this one showed all the same characteristics of her flawless writing. Do yourself a favour and pick up this book today!

The Shape of Trust is the fifth book in the Stand By Me series by Brinda Berry. This series just seems to get better and better with each new release. I have really loved this series, so when this book was released I knew I just had to read it- but I wasn’t sure I would love it as much as the other four books. Well, I should never have doubted Ms. Berry, because the characters and storyline won me over immediately, and this book has now become my favourite of the series.
As with the other books, Ms. Berry has produced a wonderful story with a superb plot and a captivating storyline. Added to that were her endearing, fully developed, and somewhat quirky characters- the combination of these pulled me into the story and kept me wrapped up in all the developments. I was so completely emotionally invested in every detail. I couldn’t put it down, as I really had to know how things would play out- so I ended up reading it all in one sitting. Web and Lily Rose are such fantastic characters, but it’s little Julianne who really stole the show!
Ms. Berry manages to instil bucketloads of charm and emotion into her stories and characters- which gives her books a real heart & soul.
I really recommend this book- you’ll be bound to love it just as much as I have!
I can’t wait to get my hands on her next book!

Thank you, Ms. Berry.
