Genres: New Adult
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.
What Love on the Ledge is about:
Sky finds out her boyfriend of 3 years is cheating on her. So, she quits her job, packs up her stuff and heads to her uncles house in the Hamptons for a summer of reflection and planning her Uncle Pepe’s wedding. While dealing with her overly involved Ecuadorian family, dodging an overly cocky suitor, trying to get her ex to understand she never wants to get back together, and continuous wedding disasters, she meets sexy handy man Hayden, who literally falls from the sky! Can Sky survive this summer and find what it is she is looking for?
What I loved:
Love on the Ledge is funny and endearing. Anyone who has an overly intrusive family will understand immediately and be able to see the love and humor in their actions. I love that Sky was not perfect and she was accepting of her confusion in her life. She didn’t try to pretend she was perfect; she knew she was lost and that her life hadn’t turned out like she expected. She is, very realistically, trying to figure out what to do when you realize your life isn’t going the way you wanted it to. Anyone who has lived through their 20’s can relate. If you haven’t lived through your 20’s yet, read this so when it happens to you, you realize its okay and you will make it! I loved Hayden as well. I loved the fact that he was NOT an alpha male at all. Don’t get me wrong-I like the alphas sometimes. It was just so nice to read a new adult book that DIDN’T have an alpha! Such a nice change.
What I didn’t love:
Honestly, not much. Occasionally I felt some of the lines were a bit cheesy but they are few and far between and the rest of the book is so good its easy to over look.
