I am thrilled to be a part of the LOVE ON THE LEDGE Blog Tour hosted by Me, My Shelf and I. This was my very first Zoraida Córdova novel and I fell instantly in love with Sky and Hayden’s story. Now I can’t wait to go back and read all about Lucky and James – who I only briefly met in LOVE ON THE LEDGE – and see what happens with River in the third book in this series.
LOVE ON THE LEDGE is a great way to introduce this series to those who haven’t yet read book one. It can stand on its own and it does so oh so well. If you’d like to know more about what I thought, my review is below. And if you’d like to know more about the books in this series and the author who penned them, their details are also below.
This tour includes an awesome swag pack giveaway and there will be seven winners. So if you have a U.S. mailing address and you’d like the chance to win enter in the Rafflecopter.
About LOVE ON THE LEDGE
Title & Series: LOVE ON THE LEDGE (On the Verge #2)
Author: Zoraida Cordova
Release date: May 5, 2015
Publisher: Diversion Publishing
Formats: Paperback, audio, eBook
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.
NOTE: This review is based on an eARC received from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest thoughts about the book.
LOVE ON THE LEDGE is sweet and funny and romantic and sexy – a total guilty-pleasure read that won’t make you feel the least bit guilty. Not after you meet Sky and her mostly lovable, slightly crazy, overprotective and overly involved family, And definitely not after you meet Hayden, the totally delectable, totally adorable, and totally perfect specimen of a man who literally crashes into Sky’s life.
With Sky’s life in flux – her long-term relationship over, her decision to change careers pending – the last thing she is looking for is love. But when she meets Hayden, who seems to be everything her ex is not, she can’t seem to stop thinking of him, stop looking at him, stop wanting him.
If her mother has any say in the matter she’d be back with her ex, even if he did cheat on her. Or she’d be moving on with a man her mother thinks would be perfect for her – the good looking but slightly creepy plastic surgeon who’d been a childhood acquaintance and neighbor.
And she won’t, as long as Sky stays strong enough to resist her family’s pressure to find a man and settle down and continues to stick to her guns and follow her dreams. But it won’t be easy.
Author Zoraida Córdova penned a heartwarming, delightful, and positively yummy story for readers to fall in love with. She tells her story through a character who is wary about falling in love, who is unsure about the choices she has to make, and who is desperate to remain in control, even when everything is falling apart.
She introduces three potential love interests for Sky to choose from, only one of whom is the right one. And she makes him the most challenging and exciting to pursue.
LOVE ON THE LEDGE is a story that can be easily devoured in one sitting. It’s a book in a series that can be read in order, out of order, or on its own. It’s a story that will make you smile, make you laugh out loud, make you sympathize with Sky, make you cringe, and make you swoon. It’s a love story that starts with a spark and becomes one that absolutely sizzles.
And it’s a must for readers looking for a story that offers more than the typical New Adult contemporary romance with its interesting and diverse characters, its humor, its single POV, and a romance that is every bit as steamy as can be expected, but one that isn’t rushed.

To turn her life around, she’ll have to stand the heat. To fulfill his dreams, he’ll have to get Lucky.
Despite her name, Lucky Pierce has always felt a little cursed. Refusing to settle for less or settle down, she changes jobs as often as she changes boyfriends. When her celebrity chef mother challenges her to finish something, Lucky agrees to help her launch Boston’s next hot restaurant, The Star. Even if it means working with the infuriating, egotistical, and undeniably sexy head chef.
James loves being known as Boston’s hottest bad boy in the kitchen, but if he wants to build a reputation as a serious chef, he has to make this restaurant work and keep his scandalous past out of the headlines. Getting involved with his boss’s spoiled, sharp-tongued daughter is definitely not on the menu.
As the launch of The Star looms and the tension and chemistry heat up in the kitchen, they’re going to need more than a little luck to keep everything from boiling over.
Never gamble more than you can afford to lose.
River Thomas was born a wild card. Her father took one look at her and decided that his daughter would have the best poker face in the city.
But when he dies unexpectedly, River’s already dangerous life is spiraling out of control. After six months without gambling—staying away from the tables where she makes and loses her fortune—she relapses, and soon must go on the run from a guy looking to settle a score.
She wants to be better, needs to be better, before she ends up like her dad. The road leads her to rehab in Sun Valley, Montana. But first, one last hurrah, and the beautiful stranger at the bar is just what the doctor ordered. She leaves before sunrise still thinking of his face. But her last hurrah with the guy of her dreams is also her counselor for the next ninety days…
Attraction, however, is too strong a lure to ignore, and soon River finds herself gambling with the one thing she never thought she would—her heart.
