about

From author Zoraida Córdova comes the steamy standalone book 2 in her New Adult On the Verge series.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review from This is the Story of My(Reading) Life Cordova caught my attention with the first book in this series, Luck on the Line. It was a really good and fun NA read. So needless to say I was eager to see what she would produce next. Love on the Ledge is just as fun and romantic. The setting on the Hamptons in the summer is one a lot of wish to experience. It was great to see it through Sky's POV as she falls for Hayden and tries to keep her family from getting into too much trouble. I really liked Sky. We meet her briefly in the first book, where she got her heart broken by her asshole of a boyfriend. That lead her out to the Hamptons to stay at her uncle's house well she puts her life on hold. Well she wants to figure it out. What does she really want. Sky loves to help people, so being a nurse fit her personality. But in the end she mostly become a nurse to appease her mother. Sky's mother is good at meddling in her life, which like Sky I found quite frustrating, but can also understand that she just wants the best for her daughter. Sky doesn't need the help though. She is super independent and strong headed. She just needed a little breather. Hayden literally falls into Sky's life. It's a totally meet cute. I really enjoyed the progression of their relationship. It wasn't angsty, just kind of sweet. That has a lot to do with Hayden. I love me a guy who is a hard worker, which you know, produces some nice muscle. But Hayden is such a genuine, sweet and fun guy. Really great guy. Perfect book boyfriend. There was also a lot of focus on family. With Sky's uncles getting married, her extended family are all coming together and staying under one roof. Which, of course, leads to fighting and butting of heads. But there's also laughing and fun times. Cordova does a really good job of showing family dynamics done in a light way. Which is exactly what Love on the Ledge is; a light, fun and romantic read. Perfect beach reading material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! Not your usual, predictable romance After a humiliating break-up, Sky could use a little peace and quiet, but a family celebration in the Hampton's isn't exactly the escape she was looking for. Surrounded by well-meaning but meddlesome family and trying to manage all the arrangements for her uncle's wedding is just about all the crazy she can handle. But when a drop-dead gorgeous and very interested roofer literally falls at her feet, Sky's time away to recoup is about to get a lot more interesting. The Verdict: It's an awesome, awesome day when a book by Zoraida Cordova pops up on my NetGalley list, and with as much as I love love loved Luck on the Line, I couldn't wait to get started on this one. While Sky was present in the previous book, we never really got the chance to know her very well. Of course, it was impossible not to feel for her, what with the way her boyfriend betrayed her, but Love on the Ledge takes her from a somewhat two-dimensional background character to someone I was desperately rooting for. Seeking an escape from the gigantic failure that was her last relationship, Sky heads off to the Hamptons to help plan her uncle's wedding. Unfortunately, her entire meddling family is there as well, which leaves her with little privacy and at their matchmaking and judgmental mercy. From her mother, who is determined to set her up with a doctor, to her cousin, who spends most of her time looking down her nose at Sky, to her uncle, who loves her unconditionally, the story is as much about one woman's happily ever after as it is about her crazy, loving family. And then there's the man who fell from the sky… Hayden is hotness personified, and he's a hell of a lot more fun than that ex of hers. The attraction is immediate, but they've both been burned before, so they've got a few hurdles to clear before they can truly give into their connection. For Sky, the issue is… Well, it's everything. She's having to refigure her life since her last relationship fell apart, and with all the insanity of both the wedding and her family, she's simply lost. For Hayden, the issue is just how incredibly decent he is. Always the good guy, he's used to being left behind, and trusting a girl who doesn't even trust her own judgement is a tough move. I absolutely love the variety of characters, and as anyone with a big family can tell you, they're absolutely real. Watching Sky reclaim her confidence and stand up to them all — and then more or less save the day when the whole wedding was up in the air — was awesome. She really deserved to seize control of her own life, especially after what she went through before. When I wasn't freaking out alongside her, I was laughing at her family's antics and swooning over Hayden, and I simply couldn't put the book down! Sky and Hayden are easily some of the most interesting characters I've read lately, and while they were certainly solid romance characters, they were just different enough to avoid the usual cookie-cutter ones I usually come across. Zoraida Cordova is a pretty incredible writer, weaving what sounds like a standard romance into something classic yet different, and I find myself truly escaping into the pages while I read her stories. I'd say I can't wait to see what comes next in the series, but the truth is that I'm probably game for reading just about anything she writes at this point. With as much romance as I read, I'm used to different versions of the same old story, but so far Cordova's writing is anything but the usual, predictable fare. ***FicCentral received this book from Diversion Books (via NetGalley) for free in exchange for an honest review.
