Juggling a new boyfriend who is constantly MIA for work, his mom who likes her just a little too much, a best friend whose husband might be sneaking around, and a busy career saving clients from sexual harassment lawsuits is pulling Marisa Tanner apart at the seams. Being with Trip is good, but is it real? Will he bail on ...more
In Borrowing Trouble we find Marisa and Trip exactly where we left them at the end of the first book in the series.
Our heroine has some problems to keep our Hero in check,he is always so driven it isn't easy to keep up with him and his ideas but he is swoon worthy and lovable and f*ckable she can't never resist himand his charm.
I've really appreciated the chance to read more about these characters journey.
It was a funny,lighthearted story with a lot of family love and emotions.
I've enjoyed it s
Like the first book, Risking Ruin, the dialogue really carried this book for me. It was a true joy to read the interactions between Marisa and Trip, and I found myself chuckling at several points in response to their banter.

Borrowing Trouble was perfect in my eyes. There was enough drama to hold my attention but not too much where I wanted to strangle the author for tearing apart a couple I adore. I can't wait for more by Mae Woods!

I really enjoyed the story, it was fun and had the perfect ending. There wasn't loads of drama but they had to work at their long distance relationship and also learning to be part of each other's families. Marisa's best friends had some issues though and this actually showed Marisa that Trip cared as he wanted to help out and went further than she thought he would.
This was a feel good story and I would rate it betw ...more
I love everything about Marisa and Trip. They are both smart and confident. They have amazing chemistry. They are similar in a lot of ways but their differences are perfect complements.
This author quickly became a favorite, auto-buy for me. I can't wait to see what's next!
No doubt in my mind, Trip Brannon deserves to be #1 on the list of Book Boyfriends. A world-class hottie who’s an astute businessman with impeccable ethics, is kind, considerate of others AND a great lover? Yup! Marisa is a chronic worry wart and as much of a tiger in the courtroom as in the bedroom, which pleases Trip no end. Author Mae Wood hit it out of the park in book 2 of the Pig & Barley series, “Borrowing Trouble”. Great romance, witty dialogue, a bit of intrigue to ke ...more
I would not say that it is my fav of the two books or even my fav series but it was good. Trip and Marisa were perfect together. Strong personalities, lawyers, and athletes. Perfect. Marisa’s pessimistic view kind of got on my nerves but I could understand why she felt uneasy with dating Trip but there were time the inner whiny dialogue was overwhelming. I am not going to say too much and spoil the storyline. I did like both books and because I read another book first before which men ...more
In this second book in the duet, the two now have permission to persue a relationship. Trip goes at it hard, while Marisa is a little more hesitant. She fears for her job, as well as her heart.
I really loved the characters in Borrowing Trouble- especially Trip. I also loved the side plot with Erica and Josh. This ...more
I loved Trip so much in this book! So impetuous, he thrives on showering Marisa with all his love and attention. If only Marisa would get out of her own way to accept what he offers! I confess to wanting to smack her a couple times, but this is such an aptly named book. For Marisa constantly borrows trouble with her doubts and fears. She has nothing to worry about where Trip is concerned, though. They settle each other, Trip and Marisa are such a great couple! I loved t ...more
I enjoyed reading more about Trip and Marisa’s journey to happily ever after. Trip is so sweet and he pursuit of Marisa is very determined, he knows who he wants and is doing everything he can to prove it. Marisa is hesitant and seems to be second guessing everyone’s words and actions, especially Trips until she realizes that he truly isn’t playing games that is.
Risking Ruin didn't do it for me but I really loved this book - it brought it altogether and was such a lovely story. I loved Erica and Josh, Marisa's talking to herself really worked in this book, where in Risking Ruin it fell flat for me.
All of Mae Wood's books have been so enjoyable (particularly love Bert!). A brand new author for me and loving her books - and her writing on Books + Main!
1. Your dirty mind.
2. Your high sex drive.
3. Your love for "Runner Girl".
4. Your love for your family.
5. That dirty mind again.
While I found that Marisa over thought a lot of things, I liked that she thought things through. I loved that she had Erica to turn to to help her with her self doubt thoughts. I wanted to smack her a few times and be all "LOOK at what Trip is doing for you".
I FLOVED the "I mean it"'s.
The characters, the storyline, the feelings! All of these lead to the 5 stars! Trip and Marisa basically fall into each other so unsuspecting, they are perfect together. He helps overcome her relationship fears after a not so nice history. She calls him on his bull. Absolute perfection.
Borrowing Trouble gives us more of Marisa and Trip! Their story continues with Marisa feeling less than confident about her relationship with Trip. Trip, on the other hand, is confident and sure about what they have together.
I was quite impressed at how real the relationship between Trip and Marisa felt. They had real life complications and fears. Reading them work things through and find their HEA was pretty great.
There was quite a bit going on not just between Marissa and Trip but all around them.
Marissa is still strong and independent and is not quite sure about her feelings for Trip. Trip is all in and does everything he can to convince Marissa that this real and time means nothing.
Between a traveling boyfriend, meeting parents and best friend marriage problems, Marissa is just a bit overwhelm ...more

Marisa Tanner still can't quite believe she is actually making things work with her handsome boyfriend Trip. Her experiences with her ex-boyfriends weren't the best ones, so she can't help but have her doubts about Trip as well; will he eventually run away or is he really in this for the long run? While struggling to run away from possible heartbreak or give things a go, Marisa also has other th ...more
Trip and Marisa are back in this amazeballs sequel to Risking Ruin her debut novel. This book picks up exactly where the first one left off so, if you haven't read Risking Ruin- YOU NEED TO!! Don't shortchange yourself of Marisa and Trip's story by jumping in on this book. It CAN be read as a stand alone but trust me, it's soo much better read in sequence.

I loved this story. Trip and Marisa's chemistry and dynamic made this such a great read. I enjoy the way Mae is able to convey her character's personalities and voices. Marisa occasionally rubbed, me the wrong way, but she always brought me right back. Her inner monologues helped in those moments. Trip and Marisa's partnership throughout seemed to continue building in all the right ways. This book made me laugh, it made me cry, but overall, it made me happy.
She loves cheeses, complicated crafts that she'll start but never complete, and puns.
A while ago Mae decided that she needed to give up the fear that she couldn't write "great literature" and write what she wants to read.
And she wants romance. And laughter. And real life.
She wants heroines who are brave. Brave enou ...more
