Who knew my brother’s friend could be Mr. Right, and not just Mr. Right Now?
My brother refused to introduce me, so I blame him. If he’d just caved, and introduced me to Jasper, I wouldn’t be in this mess. I mean, really, what’s the big deal? I’m not interested in the guy’s looks.
Oh no, I want his cold hard cash. (Be honest, you were expecting that other four letter ‘c’ word weren’t you?)
Now, before you go getting all judgy, I’m not a gold digger. I have a legitimate business opportunity for Jasper to invest in. The problem is that my stick-up-his-ass brother is embarrassed that his twin sister invents kick ass sex toys. His problem, not mine.
So, I took matters into my own hands. Defeat isn’t a word in Lennon Hart’s dictionary.
Using my stealthy P.I. moves, I narrowed my search to a time and place where I knew I could find him. It was completely innocent. A chance meeting that would give me the opportunity to pitch my business.
It wasn’t until I sat down across from the gorgeous panty soaking man in front of me, that I realized I wanted so much more than just his money. I could very well want his heart if I wasn’t careful.
Apparently my P.I. skills aren’t as stellar as I thought because Jasper had his own secret—and it changed EVERYTHING.
So, I just so happened to stumble across Piper Rayne during my weekend of first time authors. I LOVE the cover and the blurb, well, pretty damn funny. And HOT. Why not give it a shot?
Well, I started at the end of the series. The Banker is book #3 in the Modern Love series. Now, when I started The Banker, I had not read the first two books, but honestly, I was ok without reading them and got the gist of things pretty quick. However, as soon as I finished The Banker, I started in on The Bartender and The Boxer immediately.
Lennon Hart. OMG Lennon. I absolutely 100% have a lady crush on her! Holy hell, she is amazing! Lennon is the crazy chick in the group of girlfriends that runs a tattoo shop, is sporting those tattoos like a goddess, drives a unicorn van (say what!!!) and designs sex toys. Yep, sex toys. Lennon knows what she’s doing with those sex toys as she surely enjoys men and sex. Lennon is looking to get her business going with help of investors, one of which happens to be a friend of her brother named Jasper Banks. However, her brother won’t exactly let her get in contact with Jasper so she makes it her mission to track the man down.
Jasper Banks, well, Lennon just can’t find him anywhere. He is nowhere to found on the internet, no photos of him online, nothing. Lennon is bound and determined to find him, yet she meets the most handsome stranger in Starbucks and second guesses herself, just for a minute, with the man who just seems like he’d give her a run for her money.
Now, you know by reading the blurb on the book that Jasper and Lennon meet. From that point on, this book had me hook, line and sinker!
“Quickly, I realize that he’s the male version of me. Strike that, he’s better than me.”
Jasper Banks is Lennon’s match. The connection between the two of them was unreal. Their chemistry was absolutely steaming hot and the banter between them had me laughing my butt off! It seemed as though their relationship was way too good to be true…..and then in walked the drama.
Now, there was a plot twist that threw me for a loop! I was completely taken aback by it and NEVER saw it coming. However, I feel it made the story just that much more interesting as to how Lennon would deal with this situation.
This story is about determination, finding love, GREAT sex, relationships with lovers, a great set of girlfriends and family. It was a fantastic end to the series and a great first time read by this author for me!
I give The Banker (Modern Love #3) by Piper Rayne 5 stars!
