Take Me All the Way is book 3 in Toni Blake’s Coral Cove series and it was a REALLY GOOD read for me. Every now and then it’s great to read a small town romance and Toni Blake is my go to author for reads such as this.

Take Me All the Way is a beautiful small town romance.

Jeremy Sheridan is a war hero suffering from PTSD. Since returning from the war, he hasn’t started to live again.

Jeremy decides a fresh start in Coral Cove might help and the town people pretty much accept him with as one of their own.

Tamra has given up on love. When the difficult drifter, Jeremy, comes to town, she is given oversight over a new mini golf project and Jeremy.

A rocky start leaves lots of tension between Jeremy and Tamra but th

I’ve been of fan of Toni Blake’s ever since I read One Reckless Summer. She’s one of those authors that doesn’t get as much attention as I think she deserves so whenever I get the chance, I always tell friends to try out her books. Her Destiny series, and now her Coral Cove series, have become one of my top favorites in the genre because of Blake’s ability to create such touching, loving stories for her readers.

This is the first novel I read by Toni Blake and I love it. The characters and story are amazing. When I starter reading Jeremy and Tamra's story, I fell in love with this beautiful, little beach town, Coral Cove, and all the people that live there. But, it's not just Jeremy and Tamra's story, there’s also another character that stole my heart, but that's all I'm going to say about that, because I feel like it could be a spoiler to say more. I will let you know that you have a wonderful surprise

I am a big fan of Toni Blake who rather takes her time writing her books and therefore usually offers high quality romances. And she did deliver what she does best with this one.
Both lead characters had serious issues that they needed to address and learnt to tackle together. Their first encounters were nothing short of a failure, the possible physical attraction being strongly undermined by a deep inner conviction that the other one personality was flawed and unredeemable. A high-need demanding

Toni Blake's Destiny, Ohio series is one of my favourite small town contemporary series. Coral Cove the spin off has been a little patchy in places and Take Me All the Way falls into this category. Jeremy Sheridan (Tessa Sheridan's brother from Destiny,Ohio) is an ex-marine with PTSD and Tamra Day is a woman whose dysfunctional childhood stops her being able to form relationships. These personality problems mean a rocky start and the first part of the book seems a bit slow as these two damaged p ...more

Good book. Both Jeremy and Tamra have had things happen to them that have caused them to put up walls to keep people out. But when their lives collide in little Coral Cove, they find those walls getting pretty shaky. Tamra is a familiar character from the previous books, All I Want is You and Love Me If You Dare. She is part of the artist community who sells her work on the boardwalk each day. She has her friends to hang out with, but she doesn't date. Jeremy was mentioned in a few of the Destin ...more

3.5 Stars. I'm liking this series; maybe not quite as much as Blake's 'Destiny' series, but it's still good. Tammy and Jeremy's relationship building was a slow burn, but interesting. Both had secrets in their past; Jeremy's was particularly heartrending. It put his PTSD in a whole new light.

Good read; and Fletcher's issues with his long gone wife come to a head here.

A fantastic story that takes us back to the quirky seaside town of Coral Cove. A place that opens its arms to those that are slightly different or just trying to hide in plain sight. A great book and one I recommend to everyone.

The more this series continues the more I love it. Blake has a special talent in describing the scenery that makes you feel that you are in Coral Cove.

Tamra has given up on love but lately watching her friends fall in love she is feeling something and is missing sexy. At first i didn't really like Tamra. You could see she was holding herself back from herself and her friends. When she first meets Jeremy she acts like she is better then him and judges him a little to harshly in my opinion.

Tamra Day doesn’t need anything more in her life than what she has already. Yet as time wears on, Tamra begins to hunger for something…more. However, the pickings in Coral Cove aren’t exactly abundant for this garden designer, and the one that seems to pique her interest does so in more ways than one.

Jeremy Sheridan, a war hero, decides to make a new start in a completely new area. Not wanting to rely upon the kindness of friends and family, he takes his wounded self to Coral Cove and attempts
I feel like I should have liked this one better, but it was just meh for me. I didn't really care for either of the couple, not sure why, just didn't. I found myself more interesting with the talks between Abner and Jeremy, with what was going on with Fletcher, who I think made the right decision in the end.
Ok, but not my favourite from Toni Blake

I love Toni Blake and special this series was very special to me, but this book was not her best. It was missing the emotional, sexy hot story she if so good at writing. To me it never gripped me, it was kinda boring and therefore took me forever to finish reading.
I do highly recommend the rest of her books ;)

Toni Blake is an author I’ve always wanted to read, but just haven’t had the chance to do so. When the opportunity came to participate in the blog tour for Take Me All the Way, I couldn’t say no. Take Me All the Way is the third book in her Coral Cave series. If you haven’t read the previous two books, it’s not necessary to do so in order to enjoy Take Me All the Way. Although I will warn you, there are some spoilers for the previous books, but not any that I consider huge spoilers.

I wish I could give “Take Me All the Way” by Toni Blake a million stars. What a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful book! I’ve read Toni Blake before and after reading this story I now know that I need to read everything she writes. Even if she writes on a napkin, I want to read it. Needless to say I LOVED this book.

Where to start? First, any author that speaks about the effects on soldiers of war so eloquently and with such compassion has a gold start with me

Another Coral Cove novel, this story, focuses on Tamra Day, an escapee from a commune. She is an artist and has designed a mini-golf course for her adopted town of Coral Cove, Florida. She needs someone to take her designs on paper and make them real with wood and grass and landscaping. When Jeremy Sheridan, still battling PTSD from his time in Afghanistan and the death of his best friend, shows up, the owner of the local diner tells him about the opportunity for him to make some money.

All good
3 stars.

I have never read anything by Toni Blake before, but I really liked Take Me All the Way. Jeremy moved to Coral Cove after a harrowing tour in Afghanistan, where he meets and becomes employed (sort of) by Tamra. Neither of them are looking for any kind of relationship, but they can’t keep their minds off of each other. As their work continues to force them to spend time with each other, they can’t stop the sparks from flying. Will their past

I really liked this book - I read the first two books in the series and this is my favorite.
It was nice to read Tamra's story (she appears a bit in the earlier books). Tamra is an artist who has had her own struggles as a child (this was a unique storyline - I appreciate that).
Then Jeremy Sheridan comes to the town of Coral Cove. He's an ex-Marine who fount in Afghanistan and has been struggling for a while with PTSD. He's looking f

Take Me All The Way by Toni Blake is another emotional and sexy read in the Coral Cove series.

Tamra Day thought her world in Coral Cove was enough for her. Between her art, her friends and her special garden, she was content. Or so she thought until Jeremy Sheridan came to town. Jeremy gets under her skin and at first not in a good way. But they are forced to work on a town project together and this opens both of their eyes to the other.

Jeremy Sheridan is still dealing with some painful war memo

This was a sweet story about letting others get past the walls that have been erected to protect our hearts and about the power of love to help us overcome the trauma and pain of our pasts. Jeremy is living with a terrible secret that is eating him up inside and Tamra is a woman who has been soured on the thought of love based on her unconventional upbringing. Watching the two of them go from wanting to clobber each other to becoming lovers was a fun and sweet journey. It was fun to catch up a b ...more

The third book in the Coral Cove series is an excellent read. I've enjoyed the first two, and this one is a wonderful addition to the series. Although it could easily be read as a stand alone, there are characters from the earlier two who reappear, so I always recommend reading a series in order.

Toni Blake does an excellent job in creating her characters and making them realistic and believable to me. One character has serious issues from Afghanistan as a Marine, and the other from the way she w

A sweet story, with two damaged people who find they need each other. Jeremy suffers from ptsd and hasn't dealt with it, while Tamra has a childhood she has never moved on from. I enjoyed meeting the people of Coral Cove, they were great! I especially enjoyed Abner, he was the kind of friend Jeremy needed. I wasn't sure how Tamra and Jeremy were going to make it past the first couple chapters, they were so snarly with each other, but watching them evolve and fall in love was wonderful.

Tamra and Jeremy both have their reasons for being closed off from people. Tamra might seem to be more together because she has friends and her art to keep her busy but she has never let someone in all the way. These two have a rough start but their attraction proves to be strong. After confiding in one another they both become better for it. But Tamra makes a confession that Jeremy cannot handle and they both end up hurting.

Not going to win a Nobel, but not bad. It's a quick read with quirky characters that make you care. It started off slow, but once into it, it held me with just a couple stumbles.
I'd read more by the author, because I enjoyed the banter and odd yet everyday people. It has a large side cast, but I never felt confused or pulled from the story. Fun book.

Series was ok but not a wow for me - did not speak to my heart as much as others I have read. Probably would not re-read the series, except to steep myself in favourite Florida locale, so toasted Coral Cove series from my Ebook Library.
