    When all hope is gone, what will you do to provide for the ones

    When all hope is gone, what will you do to provide for the ones you love. The Token is a dark contemporary romance that left me shaken to the core. Faren Mitchell has gotten two words that tore her world apart. Now struggling to raise every dime she can find to make sure her mother is cared for, Faren must make choices that would devastate even the hardest of hearts. The only ray of hope in her bleak out look is an accidental collision with the elusive billionaire Jared McKenna.




    Although this story is novella length, we are pummeled with a riveting plot and immersed in the emotional turmoil of the story.




    Brilliantly dark and shockingly raw, The Token will rock your very foundation. Eros has proven time and time again her writing outstanding talents but The Token is a step beyond other masterpieces in literary fiction. Emotionally invested, heart wrenching circumstances, you can't help but walk away changed for experiencing this story. A favorite above other favorites, The Token will leave you breathless.

    Strong Heroine, Alpha Hero, Eros' Unique Style!

    In a world filled with books about dark romance, sexual fantasies and mysterious and powerfully hot and VERY alpha heroes who send shivers of desire down the body of the strong, yet tortured heroine, The Token by Marata Eros is like the shiny star at the top of the tree! Brilliant!

    I honestly believe this may prove to be one of Ms. Eros’ BEST of the BEST, to date! She has created a strong heroine at one of the lowest points possible in her life, but didn’t let her wallow in self-pity. Nope, Faren is amazing, strong and deals with the lemons life keeps fast-pitching at her. Enter Jared McKenna, (even his name drips hotness), the filthy rich, powerful and larger-than-life Alpha Guy who is shrouded in just enough mystery to make me crave, oops, I mean make Faren crave more. Will she have the chance to make her fantasy come true or will her worst nightmare from her past come crashing down upon her?

    Although a short read, it is long on plot, intrigue and swoon worthy heat from a cast of characters that feel real! Marata Eros has stamped her unique style on another amazing book! And yep, I’ve already read it twice!

    I was fortunate to receive an ARC edition from my friend, Marata Eros in exchange for my honest review! I honestly wish she could write faster!

    With two small, quick words, Eros immediately hooks her readers

    With two small, quick words, Eros immediately hooks her readers at the beginning of this novella, causing a series of successive thoughts to rampage through our heads as the story takes off. It’s impossible not to be intrigued—even though we don’t know Faren Mitchell at all, we understand the words, we understand their all encompassing meaning, and we understand the pain, fear, and heartache that stands behind them. We know, and Faren knows, and so we are quickly united from the very first page. It is a great beginning.

    Faren is a strong character. She is a fairly broken person, in more ways than one, but her heart is in the right place, and though I don’t necessarily agree with her final choice for work, I understand how she feels and why she chooses to do what she does. Told from her point of view, we learn her thoughts, regrets, desires, and wishes for the future, especially where her mother is involved, and as this story unfolds, we also learn the harsh reality that engulfs Faren’s past, putting us eye to eye with her on an even deeper level.

    As a novella, events within move rapidly, and while chapters do tend to jump from scene to scene, it keeps readers guessing. I actually really enjoyed that Faren would suddenly be somewhere else after a chapter break, with Eros using Faren’s thoughts and actions to explain the time lapse and what happened in between. While initially jarring for me the first time it happened, I realized what Eros was doing failry quickly and it works very well for this type of story, especially as so much happens to Faren throughout.

    Now, this novella does deal with strip clubs, but it is relatively clean–at least, not explicitly graphic, for which I am thankful. Eros toes the line very gracefully, and as we learn Faren’s true reasons for taking on this line of work, we begin to understand exactly why she chooses to do what she does. That, and the two little words at the very beginning of the story…

    Of course, Eros leaves readers hanging in the worst possible way, which is exactly her style, as it were, and I wouldn’t expect anything less, though I am indeed dying to know what’s going to happen next for Faren as her situation is quite dire, to say the least. Thankfully, The Token is the first of a novella series with monthly release dates—novella number two is already 71% complete with a pending release in mid January, and the third in the series is slated for release on February 1. Good reads are ahead. I can feel it.

    I received this book as a gift from the author for an honest review.

    This story is fast paced and keeping you on the edge of your seat. The twists and turns in this story are amazing. I didn't see the last chapter coming. This book grabs you from the start and leaves you wanting more. This story shows the dark side of Fern's life and what happens when she has no more choices and her fight to continue. This story is steamy and hot, can not wait to read the next book. In the Token everyone has a dark side with a secret.

    The Token is about Faren and her journey with dealing with a dark past and a opaque future.
    Faren is a physical therapist who is barely making enough money to take care of a mother she feels guilty for the cards she's been dealt. She is a character who's experienced a lot in her life but is naive in other aspects of it. I was intrigued from the prologue and I couldn't put it down.I like how she didn't whine about her situation. I'm also intrigue by Jared McKenna and how he's relationship with Faren will play out.
    This story does leave you with a cliffhanger and its a whopper of one that I can't wait to get Token 2.
