Discussion GuideToken: A Novel

By Beverley Kendall

“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 of the Twist of Fate series


“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


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
