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’ wo

Jessica ❥Chatterbooks Book Blog❥
I knew going into this book that I was going to love it! The first two books in the Modern Love series, The Bartender and The Boxer, made me Piper Rayne fans, so I was pretty confident in what to expect with this one. I have been anticipating Lennon’s story ever since her character was introduced two books ago. Lennon is the loud, crazy, fun, free spirited friend in the group. She is also the most secure in her sexuality, and for her, one-night stands are the norm. Therefore, I assumed her story ...more

It's LIVE!!

THE BANKER was by far my favorite book by Piper Rayne. Many factors contributed to this opinion, such as:

★★★ Lennon. I've been waiting for this woman's story ever since I met her in The Bartender. Heck, she's the one who came up with the term "unicorn cock". And she drives a vehicle with unicorns vomiting and pooping rainbows. And she's created her own exclusive brand of pleasure-inducing toys. What's not to love about her???
★★★ Jasper. Handsome, charismatic, suc

descriptionThis cover (like the book itself) is my least favorite of the trio. It's a bit on the boring side, and the guy on the cover isn't ANYTHING like how "I" pictured Jasper. The typography is interesting, though.description

The Banker is another full length novel that delivers exactly what we've come to know and love from Piper Rayne. It's fun, flirty and laugh out loud funny all the while mixing together quick wit and sizzling intimacy.

"Pompous control freak or not, Jasper Banks better watch out, because he’s never seen the likes of Lennon Hart."

The connection between these two was so instantaneous, I knew that we'd be in for a wild ride! This author duo has a knack for coming up with sweet, charming

Now that was the perfect way to end this great series. Of course Lennon has long been my favourite of the trio so I knew I was going to enjoy her quirky sense of humour and complete lack of filter. But since the series had been so solid there is always the worry that it can’t live up to expectations. Maybe the author will try to cram too much in to tie off the other couples and take away from the romance of the couple. Or maybe there will be one of a few hundred other small things that will det ...more
Better than first two, but still not an amazing read. Ok for a pass time.

This Lennon was not the person we saw in the first two books. She wasn't the quirky girl i liked. She was the Lennon-in-a-box version of herself.

I reaaaalllyyy liked the Starbucks scenes. <3 But it wasn't enough. There is no conversation between the couple. They meet, they lie, they fuck, they love but without any actual conversation. Hence my rating.

Holy hell!!! I said I was desperate to read Lennon's book after meeting her in The Bartender & The Boxer but NEVER did I expect what I actually got.

Lennon is incredible. Her story is INCREDIBLE! I loved every single second!

Lennon became my favourite back in The Bartender. Her sass and way of life, so free, was refreshing. She's hilarious, wicked and witty. And she's hot, oozing confidence. I'm not afraid to say I crushed on Lennon. LOL. Loved her. What was so fun and interesting to see was how

The book/female character was somehow a protest against double standards.

I liked this trope.
Sexually active and adventurous woman who enjoyed casual sex.
She was a bit extravagated, but it was nice to read about a sexual woman and not a virginal/celibate one.

However, the love story itself lacked depth and connection. Told completely from female POV. I missed his thoughts; I couldn’t connect with the hero and didn’t like him much.

My main complaint was the conflict between the heroine and

Gah. I just don't know what to say about this. I want to list all the things I loved but I don't want to give anything away because this needs to be read and savored. It was perfect (for me). It made me laugh, cry, swoon, rail in anger and left me smiling like a loon around 1 this morning when I finished it. Just go read it. Lennon and Jasper will be worth the time you spend reading it.

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy.

Lennon, Lennon, Lennon, lol. She's such a breath of fresh air but in this book I completely felt sorry for her. It seems like no one ever took her seriously and was always putting her down. Even though at times it seems like she was irresponsible, she didn't need to be disrespected, humiliated and shamed all the time even from family members.

Now that I've got that off my chest, the way she meets Jasper is hilarious. They were sparks flying from the begi

I just knew Lennon's book was going to be my favorite of the Modern Love books, and it absolutely was!

She has been my favorite of the 3 friends since The Bartender so to say I was excited for this book is an understatement. She’s quirky, eccentric, and outrageous- she owns who she is and she’s not ashamed to flaunt it. To her friends and family she may seem flighty, but she has a plan and she’s determined to succeed on her own merit- with or without their support.

There are books that are hard to review because a full review is a spoiler. This is one of them. The blurb tells you that Jasper has a secret. Well, he does. And, it is a game changer, just like the blurb says.

So, I am not really able to talk about the whole book in the review. Really, I am not even able to vaguely discuss parts I liked, as it is a spoiler, LOL

What I can say is that I really enjoyed it. There was a subplot with his fa

The moment I finished book 1 in the Modern Love Series I knew two things. One, I had found a new author that I absolutely loved. Two, I needed Lennon's book NOW. It was totally worth the wait too!

For two months I had anticipated the release of The Banker. I just needed to know more about Lennon Hart's character. Yes, Lennon was funnier than sin in the other two books. I mean this girl founded the saying "Unicorn Cock". You just never knew what zinger she was going to throw at you.

I’ve loved all three stories in the Modern Love Series but Lennon and Jasper’s story is my FAVORITE of the three. This story is filled with laughter because when you have Lennon being the woman that she is how can you not laugh but we’re also seeing a beautiful romance blooming. Brady is absolutely adorable and I want to hang out with him myself. Towards the end I’m tearing from a mix of sadness and joy. I can’t believe this series is complete but it’s been a great ride and yes these are standal ...more

Going with 5 stars for Lennon and Jasper. Lennon has definitely been my favorite in this series with her Tattoos and kick ass attitude. I felt like I connected with Lennon and Jasper. Of course I love that Whitney and Cole, Tahlia and Lucas along with Lennon and Jasper all have their relationships and friendships together.

To say I am a big fan of Piper Rayne would be an understatement. I have devoured every book in this series and had an all-nighter the instant this ARC landed on my kindle.
Lennon is the crazy, fun one in the group. Yet she find herself as the fifth wheel now that both her girlfriends have found their own Unicorn cocks. Well, she doesn't believe in commitments and is happy in her life and her new business making sex toys. She just needs to find an investor first.

I love the Modern Love Series because it has something for everyone. The Bartender, The Boxer and The Banker are quite different from each other and as you notice on the reviews to those books, readers love some more than others and vice versa. I personally liked the Bartender but loved the Boxer most and the Banker is somewhere in the middle between those two. Though they are all great stories!

The Banker started out really good. It was funny and so typically crazy and sneaky Lennon. I snickered

This is the third book in the Modern Love series and this one is Lennon’s story. Of all the three best friends in this series, Lennon has been the one I had not really connected with, so I entered this read with a bit of trepidation. How wrong could I be? I loved it!

Lennon is the free spirited of the friends. She is a tatted and unicorn cock flag flying, sex toy maker who knows what she wants and how she is going to get it. She is therefore at a stumbling block trying to get funding for her new

The Banker has to be my favorite in the Modern Love Series by Piper Rayne. Lennon has always been a character that I wanted to get more of, and having to wait to read her book made this book so much better!

Lennon is the wild child out of the group of characters in this series. She’s the free spirit, the one who isn’t going to settle down. She is a loyal and fierce friend, but finding her “unicorn cock” isn’t something that is going to happen for h

This book is by far the best in the series! Lennon's story was everything and more! She was by far my favorite character and the one I related to the most. I loved watching her grow and how she made the right decisions for her business and didn't mix business with pleasure. I love that she stayed committed to what she wanted even when things went a little crazy for her.

Lennon Hart is probably my favorite of the Modern Love girls. That's right I said it. I picked a favorite. I know, I know, it's kind of like picking a favorite child... it's just not right.

Don't worry, I'll tell you anyways... because I can identify with her. REALLY!

The Banker by Piper and Rayne is the third installment in The Modern Love Series. The Banker can be read as stand alone. But for better understanding I recommend to read book one The Bartender - Cole and Whitney´s book; and book two The Boxer- Tahlia and Lucas´ book, first.
Meet Lennon Hart, the black sheep of the family and only sister to three brothers. She´s straightforward, knows what she wants, and goes for it. She doesn´t do relationships.
