“LOVE ME IF YOU DARE is a beautiful story of finding the courage to let go. Blake’s writing continues to impress and stun, making for a perfect weekend read to lift your spirits.” ~ Under the Covers

LOVE ME IF YOU DARE is the second instalment in the Coral Cove series by Toni Blake. Returning to this world is so fun because I am such a massive fan of Blake’s writing. I don’t think she gets the attention she deserves because along with the sexy times, the humor and the strong characters, there’s always that heartfelt element that makes every book worth reading.

Coral Cove is set in Florida and has a good amount of visitors each day but it is also so declining. For business like the Happy Crab motel that Reece Donovan owns, it means that business is weak. This is where Camille Thompson enters the picture as she tries to convince Reece to sell his motel to her company so that they can build more better entertainment for the tourists. Reece is adamant about not selling and so springs a competition of who will crack who first.

I really enjoyed Camille’s character. She was strong and intelligent, but also had her vulnerabilities. The same goes with Reece. While he is comfortable with his business, the real reason why he doesn’t want to sell gets revealed later on in the book and once again, the intricacies of those emotions are well developed and portrayed by Blake.

There are plenty of sexy times and hilarious moments involving some precious animals as well as those heartfelt moments that for me, make the entire book. I had a satisfied teary eyed moment at the resolution of the book because of how perfect Blake ended it. And if you’re a fan of Blake’s Destiny series, you’ll also be thrilled to note that some characters from there also make an appearance.

LOVE ME IF YOU DARE is a beautiful story of finding the courage to let go. Blake’s writing continues to impress and stun, making for a perfect weekend read to lift your spirits.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
