About the Book

A LIBRARYREADS BONUS PICK!
“This romance has it all—flirty banter, deep emotion, and a smart, sassy heroine.”—JENNIFER PROBST, New York Times bestselling author

She’s brilliant, beautiful…and tired of being the only Black woman in the room.
Two years ago, Kennedy Mitchell was plucked from the reception desk and placed in the corporate boardroom in the name of diversity. Rather than play along, she and her best friend founded Token, a boutique PR agency that helps “diversity-challenged” companies and celebrities. With corporate America diversifying workplaces and famous people getting into reputation-damaging controversies, Token is in high demand.

Kennedy quickly discovers there’s a lot of on-the-job learning and some messes are not so easily fixed. When Kennedy’s ex shows up needing help repairing his company’s reputation, things get even more complicated. She knows his character is being wrongly maligned, but she’s reluctant to get involved—professionally and emotionally. But soon, she finds herself drawn into a PR scandal of her own.

“A smart, sexy rom-com that had me chuckling from the first page. I loved it.”—BRENDA JACKSON, New York Times bestselling author

Token is a rom-com perfect for our times. I can’t wait to see it on the big screen!”—KAIA ALDERSON, author of Sisters in Arms

Critical Praise

“Friends to lovers, family entanglements, and a much more cinnamon roll version of Christian Grey á la Fifty Shades of GreyToken is a smart and sexy romantic comedy...that is quick-witted, funny, and dives into contemporary social issues.”BUZZFEED, These 12 Romance Novels Will Knock Your Socks Off

A LibraryReads Bonus Pick!
"This smart and sexy novel is perfect for readers who enjoy romances featuring workplace settings and strong social commentary, as well as fans of Jasmine Guillory."—Migdalia Jiminez, LibraryReads Board

“This romance has it all—flirty banter, deep emotion, and a smart, sassy heroine I fell in love with.”—JENNIFER PROBST, New York Times bestselling author

"Exes fake-date their way back to love amid a race relations scandal in this bold contemporary romance. The romance itself unfolds as expected, but it’s the fearless exploration of the hardships of being Black in white spaces that sets this apart. Kendall explores the nuances of interracial dating while still offering plenty of levity throughout. Readers looking for romance with grit should snap this up."—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“The heroine’s dialogue and inner thoughts had me chuckling from the first page. Beverley Kendall’s Token is a smart, sexy rom-com with wry social commentary and a satisfying HEA. I loved it.”—BRENDA JACKSON, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The House on Blueberry Lane

“A workplace saga quickly turns into a juicy romance when a PR professional’s ex-boyfriend comes to her with a career emergency.”—Cosmopolitan

Token is everything. It is funny and insightful, satirical and swoony. A rom-com perfect for our times. I can’t wait to see it on the big screen!”—KAIA ALDERSON, author of Sisters in Arms

“A super smart and witty smorgasbord of a novel built on a smoldering foundation of first love and deliciously difficult decisions. Token pulls you in and fixes you to the spot. Beverley Kendall's thought-provoking exploration of race and gender within the corporate world sits seamlessly alongside the familiar muddiness of what it is to be a human navigating matters of the heart as told through the bold and hilarious voice of the novel's heroine, Kennedy.”—ONYI NWABINELI, author of Someday, Maybe

“Both an incisive, wryly funny tale of a strong, smart Black woman carving a place of power for herself in corporate America and a sizzling second-chance love story, Token is the romantic comedy holy grail: full of laughs, sexy as hell, and as thoughtful about its characters’ inner lives as it is our collective social one. I can’t wait to see what Beverley Kendall brings us next.”—ASHLEY WINSTEAD, author of Fool Me Once -
