The Banker (Modern Love Book 3) 

by Piper Rayne 

From a secret duo of USA Today Bestselling Authors, comes the third COMPLETE STANDALONE in the Modern Love Series.

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.

Note To Readers: The Banker concludes the Modern Love series. Each book can be read as a standalone.

Jen's Review 5 Stars 

I almost decided against 5 stars, but only because I feel this book left me wanting more, a little too much :) 
It didn't feel like it was complete. The whole thing with her brother, her business and their HEA seemed to be rushed at the ending. 

BUT I truly did love this book! My heart invested in this story a little too much - can't remember the last time I cried so hard. 
Throw in a kid in a story and all bets are off - this story really tugs at your heartstrings. 

If you've read the first 2 books in this story, you already know how strong willed and easy going Lennon is. If you haven't read the first two books, that's ok - because you can see her character coming to life in the beginning. 

When she goes to her family meeting, she gets picked on - having 3 brothers, I'm sure she's used to that, but then her mom chimes in, and you start to feel bad for her. Not in a pity way - because Lennon is a strong girl. She believes in herself wholly, and doesn't let anyone keep her down.  But you start to see her as the girl who is different than everyone around her, and she accepts that about herself. 

Jasper Banks - well everyone seems to have him pegged wrong. They all tell her he's a tough nut to crack. He's wholesome and doesn't give a crap about some lowly girl who wants to make it big by producing sex products. 
But Jasper isn't a bad guy at all. He is strong willed with his business and doesn't take crap in his personal life. He's over protective and actually a really big sweetheart. 

Really a cute story - sad it ended the series for me. I was really enjoying this group of people :)
