Review: Love on the Ledge by Zoraida Cordove

Title: Love on the Edge

Author: Zoraida Cordova


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.


5 out of 5 stars

Love on the Ledge, the second book in Zoraida Cordova's On the Verge series was even better than Luck on the Line. I wasn't sure about how I felt about Sky in Luck on the Line because we were always seeing her through Lucky's eyes but I absolutely loved her in this book. She was so great and I related to her character on a very personal level. And then we had Hayden. If I was to describe my dream boyfriend it would be him. Now if only a guy like him would fall through my roof. Lol.

Anywho, I really loved this book. The plot was even better than that of the first book. I also really loved how diverse this book was. I mean we have a gay wedding between an Ecuadorian man and an Italian man at the center of the plot which is complemented by the main romance between Sky and Hayden which is a interracial relationship. And talking about the relationship between Sky and Hayden it just gave me so much life with how perfect it was.

In regards to the overall plot, I loved how realistic all the interactions between all the character were. All the meddling on the part of las viejas as Sky called them reminded me so much of my very loud Hispanic family and as much as they annoyed me, I loved how spot on their portrayals were.And kind of going along with all the meddling, the highlight of this book for me wasn't even the romance but the point in which Sky finally stood up for herself and put her foot down. It was glorious!

Overall, I really loved this book. It is was another great new adult book by this author and like with Luck on the Line I can see myself rereading this book time and time again.
