Synopsis:  Faren collapses, narrowly escaping discovery upon hearing traumatic news delivered by Thorn. When Thorn becomes her uneasy accomplice in the deception of Mick, Faren decides she needs to come clean with the truth. Shelving her pride might be the last thing she wants to do, but as facts and actions continue to contradict one another, her hands become tied in the lies she creates to survive.

Faren only needs one last lap dance to erase the final debt that hangs over her mother's head like a cloud of doom. But when Ronnie Bunce circles closer to Faren and threatens the last sanctuary she possesses, circumstances unravel to reveal lies that run deeper than she knew.

Can Faren and Mick consummate their passion before her deceit is discovered? Or will the last dance be the ultimate loss?

FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from the author, editor, publisher, or Promo Host. This is my honest opinion about this book and I did not receive any monetary compensation for writing this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.

My Rant:  The Token 3 was exhilarating, captivating and action packed.  The story took a complete shift and that shift made for an amazing twist.  The plot thickens and you are not sure what going to happen next but there are some demented things going on in Faren’s life right now.  Thorn has really surprised me. I am second guessing my feelings for him as a character.   Marata exposes thorns secrets and I am completely floored by them. It seems what I thought about him is shifting and I am beginning to understand his position and why he acts the way he does, but I still think he acts like an A$$. Farens life is spiraling out of control. Someone is tormenting her in the worse way and the only solace she finds is within McKenna.  

McKenna, does not take no for an answer and I love the way he demands what he wants. Mckenna is hot and ooz with sex appeal.How can you say no to a man like that with ultimate alpha attitude.   I want to know more about Mckenna, you get a glimpse of back story and your heart stops for a brief moment. 

When he and Faren get close there are electric sparks that fly. Faren and Mckenna fall deep into their romance and the plot shifts again. I am on edge; my heart is palpitating, there is a rush of action and fist are flying and all I can’t do was slouch down and duck.  There is no turning back now we have hit the limit of no return. Hearts are broken and this won’t be an easy fix.

The authors writing style keeps you hooked. I am like the moth to the flame. I just could not put the book down.  I love the characters and all of their roles except Ronnie.  I hate Ronnie and I can’t wait until he gets what coming to him. There are so many players in the game I am not sure who’s going to get it first but I do know when it happens it’s going to be great.  As I am nearing the end to The Token 3 , bam it happens again and ish is hitting the fan. Faren and I are left broken hearted and Thorns a little bruised but the betrayal in its self seems like it cannot be undone.
My recommendation: 

Overall I love this book and the Token Series. I rated this book 5 out of 5 Purple Rant Hearts and would recommend this book to anyone that loves a romance that is an emotional roller-coaster that is full of action. This book has all the elements of a great story with a gritty twist. Marata ability to drag a reader into a dark place and give them a glimpse of the perfect light makes her a genius at her craft. This series is definitely going on my 2014 favorites list.
