TOKEN is the first instalment in Kelly Gendron’s contemporary, adult DARING THE KANE BROTHER erotic romance series focusing on the Kane sibling. This is former boxer Token Kane, and twenty-five year old, Harley Redbourne’s story line. DARING THE KANE BROTHERS is a spin-off from the author’s BREAKING THE DECLAN BROTHERS series. Told from dual first person perspectives (Harley and Token) TOKEN follows the building relationship between former boxer Token Kane, and twenty-five year old, Harley Redbourne. Token Kane works for boxing promoter and gym owner Bronx Mosely doing specialty jobs no one else wants to handle including the retrieval and babysitting of a woman who pushes all of Token’s buttons. Enter Harley Redbourne, the woman with whom Token will fall in love. On the run, staying one step ahead of her past, Harley Redbourne battles the guilt and memories of a time long ago, memories that she tries to drown at the bottom of a bottle. What ensues is the slow building romance, but tempestuous and acrimonious relationship between Harley and Token, and the potential fall-out as Token’s past is too close for comfort. Token Kane is sent to retrieve Harley Redbourne but is unaware of the reasons surrounding his latest assignment. Battling his own demons, Token sees a kindred spirit behind the spitfire and fury of the woman that will call to his heart. Harley Redbourne is unwilling to go quietly; to be complacent for a man she believes is only doing his job. Struggling with the memories of heart break and loss, Harley continue to rebel and push at the man that calls to her heart. The relationship between Harley and Token begins as an assignment. Harley refuses to cooperate with Token’s demands, as Token battles with the woman with whom he will fall in love. The $ex scenes are intimate, passionate and intense without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are introduced Token’s parents and his siblings: Crash, Nix, Steele and Lurlene, as well as boxing promoter Bronx Mosely. The requisite evil is familiar to our story line hero TOKEN is a story of family, loss, guilt and grief. The premise is fast paced and spirited ; the characters are feisty, stubborn and determined; the romance is provocative and energetic. TOKEN is an engaging look at two broken people trying to hide from ghosts of the past.

I was hooked on this couple from the very first page! The chemistry between Harley and Token was hot and the plot was so well planned that I had a very hard time putting this book down!

I wasn't expecting what I got from this book. It was awesome! I read a ton of stories like these for a quick thrill and the sexual excitement. This story has both of that, as well an unexpected heartwarming relationship that had me in tears at the end. I will definitely be reading more from this author!

Token is assigned the task of picking up and delivering Harley. She’s one tough cookie but she’s been hurt from the loss of her family and protects herself with her tough girl act. Token is calm and patient but determined to deliver her to her uncle. Keeping her purse, phone and car as hostage to ensure that outcome, Harley is forced to follow his lead. This was a nice read with a fast pace. No real over the top behaviors and yet they both definitely start to fall from the very beginning. Although it has plenty of hot action and not a lot of angst, I felt it could have been fleshed out a little more to make an entertaining read into a great read. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it tremendously. I will definitely be watching for the next book in this series to be released. ARC provided for honest review Dual POV

I became a fan of Kelly Gendron with the Declan brothers’ series so when I see the spinoff from this series on the Kane brothers I had to pick this up and am I glad that I did. We are first introduced to Token Kane as he is trying to save someone who is determined to end her life. The man who helped Token out after his ordeal on the bridge is the same man who helped Token fulfill his dream of being a boxer. That didn’t last for long as an incident in a bar scarred Token and he gave up on the promising career in boxing. Eventually he has come to terms with what happened and has moved forward in his life. Now he is employed by Bronx to do various “jobs” for him one of which is bringing Harley Redbourne back to him. Token has no idea what her relationship to Bronx is nor does he care…that is until he meets her. Harley has had a tough life and is struggling with her past. Then Token comes into her life and the two have a connection that neither of them understands. It’s a great romance story of one has come to terms with not letting the past define his future and the other is struggling with her past and doesn’t know how to live in her future. As in her past books Ms. Gendron has a knack for pulling you in and keeping you on the edge of your seat for the entire book just waiting to see if her characters will make it through and if they do what is the cost to them personally. She sure knows how to throw in surprises along the way too! I definitely cannot wait to see what she has in store for the rest of the Kane brothers because she has already built a great basis for each of them. If you have not read the Declan brothers series I would definitely recommend them as well. I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley for a freely given and honest review.

Token by Kelly Gendron Daring the Kane Brothers #1 Tormented, troubled and at times troublesome Harley Rebourne loses herself to the demons that lurk within her only to emerge on the anniversary of an enormous personal loss. One year, though, Token Kane is sent to find her and then take her to Bronx Mosley. There is attraction between them that Kane is unwilling to take advantage of until Harley is in the right frame of mind. In the revealing of their pasts to one another a closeness occurs and a future is pursued. This was a quick read with a heartwarming storyline. There were editing mistakes but the story overcame them as I read and was taken in by the characters. This was the first book I have read by this author. I would be willing to read more by her.

Token has that perfect alpha bad boy persona but yet, he has a heart of gold. He is a little lost after some tragic incidents which changes the direction of his life. When he is sent on a mission for Bronx, he never expects Harley to smack right into his life. Harley is a very strong, tough woman. After the death of her family, she was pushed into a cold world and had to figure out how to survive. Her uncle made sure she didn’t want for nothing but, at the same time, she never felt loved. She is shocked by the connection she feels to Token. As these two fight their attraction, they become friends and for the first time, these broken souls share their darkest secrets creating a strong bond. I loved how Kelly Gendron gave me two strong and determined characters to embrace while showing their vulnerabilities. I also had a few unexpected surprises as their story unfolded that kept me guessing and turning the page. We are also introduced to the Kane family which leaves me wanting to learn all of their secrets.

Favorite Quotes: I want that feeling again. Like when I was ten years old at the circus, all the excitement and fear, the high wire act, the fire, and the lions. Forced to sit in my seat, keeping all the excitement bottled up inside as I watched the performance when all I really wanted was to be a part of it. I wanted to experience it firsthand. That’s how I feel right now. I won’t settle for that, and you know it. To get me you’ll have to trust me, open-up and show me your ugly. You’ll have to let me in, babe. Let me see what hurts. After our usual Tuesday afternoon rendezvous, when I got out of the shower, Jill was gone and so were all my clothes. She left me a nice little note with many colorful words and locked all my sh* up out in my car, including my f*ing keys. Luckily, she left me my cell. Dude, stop f*ing laughin’! My Review: Kelly Gendron’s new series featuring the Kane brothers is off to an explosive start. This dynamic and foul-mouthed family of five brothers and one sister are a unique collection of quirkiness. Their family gatherings included fisticuffs, witty banter, and humorous bickering. I adored Token and find it difficult to believe any of his brothers could best him. Token was a thoughtful, insightful, and tenderhearted alpha whose boss had sent him on an errand to find and escort the troublesome Harley to her uncle. Harley was a hot mess and in the midst of a downward spiral of destructive, self-indulgence, and irresponsible behavior. Their immediate attraction was highly carnal but their karma wasn’t new as this wasn’t the first time their families had crossed paths. The plot was clever and the storyline was full of feels and well paced while alternating between angst, erotic sensuality, and thoughtful insights. The Kane characters were enticing and intriguing, and I found Harley more likable during the last half of the book as she had initially presented as obnoxious and annoying. I am already curious about the rest of the clan.

March 13, 2017 – Finished Reading Review Wow! When I say the last few chapters of this book had be gasping and freaking out, I mean it! I am THRILLED that Kelly is writing another brother series because her Declan Brothers trilogy was one of my favs. The Kane's are another group of *ahem* interesting boys. We already met and fell in love with Lurlene in Zeke's story, but now we get to see the 5 Kane brothers. Token is the first we get to meet and he is one hell of a sexy man! Harley is a really messed up girl, that of course, Token falls for but what gets you is how he fixes her and then finds out they have a connection from years before. Reading Token's reaction had my eyes tear up! Needless to say this is a great introduction into this series and I can't wait to read about Steele, who is up next. Read this book!!! You will not be sorry you did!!
