USA Today Bestselling Author of Breaking the Declan Brothers Series, now brings you Daring the Kane Brothers! Token is book #1 of five new shameless, sexy, and daring brothers who will heat up your Kindle!


Retired boxer, TOKEN KANE is comfortable on a motorcycle but little does this Irish rogue know the next Harley he picks up will give him the ride of his life.

One week out of the year, HARLEY REDBOURNE puts away her good-girl and completely let's go. It's around the same time that her dark past resurfaces. But this year is different, when it's time to put her past away, the darkness wants to stay.

For the past ten years, Harley Redbourne hasn't had anyone waiting for her in the corner of the ring. She's had to go at this fight all on her own. She needs a cornerman, a trainer, a friend and as much as I don't want to toss in the towel, I know that I could be that for her. ~ TOKEN KANE

“Touch me, and I swear...” I point at him. “I dare you!”

“You dare me now, do ya?” He stops close enough for his masculine scent to fill my nose, and laughs, his sexy smile spreading inside his beard. “Do ya know the meaning of a dare, my sweet little lass?” His eyes lower to my mouth.

My palms begin to sweat as I inhale him. Damn, he smells good, and it doesn't help that I haven’t eaten yet today. I’m starving.

“Yes.” I lick my lips, following his eyes as they move back up to mine.

“Then you might want to try another.” He leans down, his tempting lips so close to mine. “Because I’m not afraid to touch you, Harley Redbourne.”

“Is that a threat?”

“No. It’s a fact, and if you don’t get your stubborn little ass in my truck right now, I’m going to show you just how unafraid I am to touch you.”

“And what? If I don’t, you’ll what?” I stammer, stepping back. “Force me?”

“No, if you don’t do as I say, I’ll bend your stubborn ass over my knee and slap that naughty little tush until you learn to behave and do as you’re told.”

“Oh-ho, no, you won’t!”

“No?” His head swings lazily to the other side, eyes sparkling bright. “Dare me.” His arm comes around my straight back. He pulls me against him. “And I’ll show you just how unafraid I am to do that too.”

Sparks fly between Token and Harley from their very first meeting. Harley is drinking to forget. Ten years ago her family died and every year on the anniversary, she gets sloshed. Token is sent by his boss to collect Harley and bring her home to California.

I loved Token. He is tough, sexy, smart, and very patient. He wants Harley but he sees that she is in pain and is not ready to let someone in. And Token is right. When we see Harley's point of view, it is clear that she is hiding from the pain and from people, and needs someone she can trust to love her. Token shares himself and his family with Harley to try to break down her walls.

There are a lot of things I loved about this story. Harley and Token's great chemistry, which makes for plenty of heat; Token's brothers and family, who are fun and a loving bunch; Token's strength and bravery to face the difficulties in his life were some of my highlights. I confess I did struggle with Token calling Harley lass. Nothing wrong with the term lass but every time Token said it, I could picture Billy Connolly in my head and hear his Scottish voice, which was particularly off-putting during the sexy scenes.

This is the first book in the Daring the Kane Brothers series and I was pulled in right from the start, and when we got to the end, I wanted more. The next brother to get a book is Steele. Bring it on.

This is a moving story which travels in unexpected directions and has a very satisfying outcome. It mixes a number of sub-genres for me, and does so very successfully.

I was kept quite securely on the edge of my seat for quite a significant part of the story, as Harley really has no fear – and I seemed to take it on for her! And as we learn why, it starts to make sense, but still is very powerful. I love how the whole story unfolds in a very organic and unforced way. There is a puppet master, but he is supremely in control of himself... until even he shows a crack.

Very enjoyable read, and I am really looking forward to understanding the drama which is hinted at right at the end.... I do hope Ms. Gendron is busy creating the next story!
