Overview

Sometimes you have to create your own destiny . . .

Christy Knight grew up in Destiny, Ohio, but lately she feels that her future lies elsewhere. Her parents are gone and the beautiful jewelry she creates doesn't pay the bills. Maybe it's time for Christy to grow up and find a guy who's smart, sexy, and solvent. Her rugged handyman neighbor fits the first two categories, but he's all wrong for her. If only he didn't have such captivating blue eyes.

Wary of trusting others, Jack DuVall hasn't been entirely honest with Christy. He's not really a handyman. He's not really broke. And sharing the long drive to visit her beloved grandpa isn't just about gallantry—he finds gorgeous, feisty Christy completely irresistible.

When secrets are exposed, Jack and Christy struggle to find their way back to one another, but the quirky seaside town of Coral Cove could prove the perfect place to find a red-hot destiny of their own.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
04/14/2014
Bestseller Blake plucks a minor character from her completed Destiny series for this skimpy contemporary romance, which starts the Coral Cove series. Christy Knight is an orphaned college dropout struggling to make ends meet in Destiny, Ohio. After learning that her only relative, Grandpa Charlie, has run out of money to pay for his nursing home in Coral Cove, Fla., she vows to find a way to help, even if that means marrying for money. Jack DuVall, her hunky neighbor, thinks Christy is terrific; after learning she’s after a rich man, he conceals his lucrative work as a financial advisor. When the two embark on a road trip to see Grandpa Charlie, they feel increasing sexual desire, even though Jack’s lies force him to keep Christy at a distance. Flashbacks to Grandpa Charlie’s 18th summer add some sorely needed depth. Agent: Meg Ruley, Rotrosen Agency. (June)

    Great new series!

    Christy and Jack are a very interesting characters. I loved how we lwere updated on Destiny while meeting some very interesting new people. All the advice Jack and Christy received from this group brought them full circle and helped them to see what true love is.

    Not her best.

    I liked it up until a certain point. The main character was more irrational, and got very self righteous and unfairly angry at her love interest.

    We are back in Destiny, Ohio! Well, sorta. For a time anyway.

    ALL I WANT IS YOU marks the first book in Toni Blake’s new Coral Cover series. As the book begins in Destiny where Christy Knight is feeling the financial pinch, readers feel the immediate connection to her losses and her dire situation. Christy had to drop out of school in her second to last semester because her family back home suffered from a fire, killing her family as well as burning down everything that belonged to her. Without insurance, Christy was left with nothing and was forced to work, trying to stay afloat. However, her grandfather in Florida is suffering his own financial problems and because his home takes such great care of him, Christy wants to do something to help her granddaddy who is her only remaining family left.

    Christy comes up with a plan and it’s to lure a rich man into her life. Hopefully, it will help her but when her first date goes terribly wrong and her neighbour is there to witness it all, Christy is quickly loosing hope.

    While the quest to snatch a rich man trope isn’t my favourite, nor does it come off as very romantic at first, I found that Toni Blake makes it work regardless. One of the things I adore about Blake’s writing is that she is so readily able to pour her heart into her books. There is so much emotion, whether its sympathy for Christy’s bad situation or if it’s the same sadness that Jack experiences when he thinks about his wife. You end up feeling it all.

    What I also love about Blake’s books is that there always seems to be an underling message through everything she writes. There’s a life lesson, a realization that the characters experience that mimic the ways of real life and that to me what makes her books stand out. They are sexy, entertaining Contemporary Romances, but I feel like after reading this book, you also feel enlightened about love and life in general as well. I haven’t ever encountered another author who does this as well as Toni Blake does.

    Here’s a quote that perfectly describes what I mean:

    “Life is all about balance. And walking on the tightrope is really just a metaphor for life. It’s…a balance of putting yourself at risk and keeping yourself upright at the same time. It’s about the discipline to teach yourself to do the impossible. Anybody can walk on a tightrope if they’re brave enough and dedicated enough. Anybody can learn to do the impossible – if they want it bad enough. I just wanted it bad enough. So what’s impossible for you?”

    How can you read that and not walk away inspired by Toni Blake’s words?

    ALL I WANT IS YOU is a beautifully written, heartfelt story of strength, bravery, trust and love. If you’re looking for a book that is more than just a classic romance, then the Coral Cove series is for you.
