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.


Review:  Having read the first book in the On the Verge series by Zoraida Cordova, I was hoping to get a sneak peek of what happened next with Lucky and James. Although Love on the Ledge is the second book in the three-book series, they are all standalone books. This particular installment features Sky, who made a cameo appearance as Bradley’s girlfriend in the first book.

Fast forward, and Sky is seeking the comfort of friends and family after ditching Bradley. At this point in the story, the author provides a diversion for Sky by getting her involved in wedding plans. As the storyline develops, a new cast of characters is introduced. I kept waiting for a dynamic duo to emerge with the same kind of chemistry from the first installment, but I wasn’t ever able to find it. Even Sky isn’t too keen on finding Mr. Perfect, although Xandro and Hayden are more than willing (not counting Bradley the dirtbag).

However, Sky’s attitude sets the stage for love to take its course and for the author to weave her magic. Both Xandro and Hayden offer the promise of happiness, but it takes a series of events — one featuring the main character in the third book — to show Sky the path to her future. Readers who come from big families will chuckle at some of the scenes as the matchmakers try their best to find Sky a partner.

The title makes a lot of sense for this story because Sky literally is on the verge of finding love…if only she allows herself to do it.
