Sky Lopez thought she had it all—the perfect job, the perfect relationship, the perfect life…until she discovers her not-so-perfect boyfriend has been cheating on her. So when her uncle asks her to help plan his Hamptons wedding, Sky jumps at the chance, leaving all of her “perfect” future plans in the rearview mirror.

The wedding doesn’t prove as good a distraction as she’d hoped, because when her relatives and friends find out she’s single, they put Sky in their match-making sights. Never mind that she’s only twenty four. Never mind that she doesn’t want to settle for anyone other than Mr. Right. Seemingly everyone in Sky’s life wants her to get married and have babies. Like, yesterday.

So when Hayden—a sweet, sexy roofer—plummets through the ceiling and practically falls into her lap, she can’t help but think that maybe nice guys do just fall from the sky.

Soon Sky finds herself juggling crumbling wedding plans, the cheating ex who’s trying to win her back, the cute plastic surgeon her family thinks is perfect for her, and the hot roofer she can’t seem to get off her mind.

As the wedding date draws closer, Sky will need to choose one—or none—to keep herself from falling off the ledge, and maybe into love.

NA Review My Thoughts

Love on the Ledge is the second book in the new adult contemporary romance series, On the Verge. Each book is a standalone. When I joined the blog tour for Love on the Ledge, I didn’t realize that it was the second book in the series. So I was a little wary, because while I have read series out of order and even skipped books a couple of times (not on purpose!), I do enjoy reading series in order more. But I have to say that Love on the Ledge read fabulously as a standalone book. I was never lost, and everything was fully explained. I didn’t feel like I was being dropped into a world where the background was laid in another book. I can’t wait to read more by Zoraida Cordova.

Love on the Ledge takes place in the weeks before a big family wedding. I loved how big of a family this was too. There were tons of cousins all around the same age. I was a little jealous, I think that would make family gatherings so much fun. Like an instant group of friends. Although, like I saw in Love on the Ledge, just because you are cousins and the same age, doesn’t mean that you will get along with everyone. There is bound to be a mean girl in the group somewhere.

Love on the Ledge is told entirely from Sky’s point of view. She is going through some pretty big life changes when the book starts. Her long term boyfriend cheated on her, and she is facing a potential career change, so she is in transition throughout the story. I really liked getting to know Sky. I loved that she was her own person and she had no problem doing what she wanted to do. Even with her meddling mom. And then there is Hayden. Hayden makes my heart skip a beat. I wanted to see some chapters from his point of view because he is just so darn loveable and sweet. Seriously, he is the best of guys.

It broke my heart when he told his story of how being the good guy has gotten him trampled over in the past. I was rooting so hard for him and Sky. It seemed so effortless when they were together. And that is something that you want to hold on to. Love on the Ledge is a great romance book. There is just enough drama to keep it interesting, but overall this is a really nice romance. I want to see more of Sky and Hayden! Give them another book! And if you have not checked out the on the verge series, start with Love on the Ledge.

    I love books that have a huge family dynamic as well, it just adds so much to the story in so many ways.
    This sounds wonderful!

  2. Jaime Lester

    I love companion novels, but I still think I would have to read them in order! This sounds so good, I will have to check it out!

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      I normally like to read them in order too, but I had no idea this was even part of a series when I signed up for the tour. Poor research on my part.
      Thanks for stopping by

    I can’t remember what the worst reason for being dumped was, Michelle. I’ve been with my husband for the past 25 years, so it’s been a very long time since I was last dumped 😉
    Love on the Ledge sounds like it’s both humorous and sweet, and I’m definitely adding it to my TBR.
    Thanks for sharing, and for hosting the giveaway!
    Have a wonderful weekend.

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      Congrats to you and your husband on 25 years! That is great 🙂

      And Love on the ledge is a good romance. I can never get enough of them, so if you are like me, you will probably enjoy this one too. Thanks for stopping by Lexxie

    I am usually very OCD-ish with reading series in order but contemporary romances really usually do not have to. In fact, sometimes the next book is better than the first.
    I like it that book is told only from Sky’s pov. It works better for me then when it’s dual pov.

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      Yea I normally like to read in order too but with this one it really didn’t matter. I agree, romances are really the only genre that I will skip around with. Thanks for stopping by Dragana
