Three book blogs have released wonderful reviews of Risking Ruin.
A New Page Book Blog gave Risking Ruin 4 hearts and wrote:
For me, Risking Ruin was all about the small details. Wood has a knack for crafting scenes that literally take you there. From artwork, wardrobe, and the sites of Memphis, I had a perfect envision of each scene as they unfolded. Her characters are well-developed, fun, and flirty. Add that in with just enough steamy parts to keep things interesting and you’ll find yourself immersed until the very end.

The characters are nicely developed; the storyline does have a few interesting legal insights which made it feel a lot more believable. This would be the perfect summer beach read; not too taxing but a lovely story all the same!

Marisa is a fun, likeable heroine. She’s good at her job, and not so fussed about the fact she hasn’t found a man who wants to stick around for good yet. Sometimes I find strong, independent romance novel heroines too intense, but Marisa was just right on the I love my job and don’t need a man! front. Her parents make a few funny appearances, and I loved her friend Erica too – I can’t get enough well-written girl talk. As for Trip, well, he’s pretty swoon-worthy. He’s not just the playboy Marisa originally takes him to be, and they actually have more in common than she thought. He’s actually pretty perfect, apart from the whole working for her biggest client and a relationship being against the rules thing. The way they work around it is both cute and hot (what actually defines a “sexual” relationship, hmm?). In addition to the romance plot, there’s an interesting little mystery subplot as Marisa and Trip try to figure out the strange connection between the seven or eight sexual harassment suits that have been brought against Branco.
