Publisher's Summary

From a secret duo of USA Today Best-selling 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.

The audio version made me love it mor!

Mad About the Banker (Modern Love Book 3) by Piper Rayne is the book I’ve been waiting for! I am hooked on the Modern Love series and needed to know Lennon’s story. Piper and Rayne did not disappoint!

Lennon Hart is the tattooed, quirky third in the Modern Love trio. Though I loved Whit and Tahl, Lennon is my favorite! She’s unique, blunt, creative, damn near fearless, but she also has her vulnerable side. She’s now used to being the fifth wheel when her friends get together. She’s not looking for Mr. Right. She’s happy with Mr. Right Now. She had goals and ambitions and has no qualms about doing what she has to do in order to reach them.

Jasper Banks. Sounds pretentious, right? He’s not. He’s a gorgeous man with a sense of humor that matches Lennon perfectly. He isn’t all about himself and his accomplishments. He’s genuine and caring. He’s exactly the kind of man that Lennon needs. But he has a secret. It may be one secret that will tear them apart.

I have read Mad About the Banker countless times. Yes, I reread a lot, but I’m particular about what I reread. Lennon just keeps me laughing. A lot of her thoughts are like my own. I swear she and I would have a blast. We could even spend hours talking about our tattoos (I have several myself, almost two full sleeves in addition to the ones on my calves and my sternum)! I will say that I would love to punch Lennon’s twin brother in the head. He needs some sense knocked into him. The rest of her family…I won’t spoil it, but let’s just say that it’s miraculous that Lennon isn’t a brittle or weak person. They actually made me love her even more. This also made me look at her best friends a little differently. You have to read this to know why. As for Jasper, I need one like him! His need for Lennon was thoroughly enjoyed! He definitely has a dominating side, but it’s not one that’s bad. It’s all good, I promise! Sooooo good! There’s so much more I want to say, but I don’t want to spoil it. It’ll be worth the wait.

The Banker gave me what I needed. There’s a bit of angst. Not totally rip-your-heart-out angst, but enough to where you feel it. This one had me trying to rub the ache out of my chest. I needed Lennon and Jasper happy!

This book! Oh this book! It had me laughing, chuckling, grinning maniacally, ready to hit someone, needing a cold shower (or my Eli), in tears of sorrow, and finally, tears of joy! I know that I will be rereading this in the future, that’s how much I loved it! I can't wait for more from Piper Rayne!

Molly Mermelstein is such a fantastic narrator! She brought Lennon's sarcastic humor to life and I loved it, even though she made me look like an idiot because I kept busting up in laughter when I listened during my commute. And the parts that always hit me with this book? Molly intensified it. She is amazing, I hope to hear more from her!

Lennon's Love Story

Lennon's story is just as great as Whitney and Tahlia's. This is the final story in the Modern Love series but you can listen to them in any order. Lennon needs financing for new business. Her brother won't introduce her to his mentor and she decides to meet him in a bar not knowing what he looks like. It ends up being a speed dating meeting. When Lennon and Jasper meet, it's electric. Jasper decides that he'll have his partner invest in her business but doesn't know that she had been there to get him to invest. That omission will cause problems down the road. Will Lennon get her happily ever after like her friends? I really enjoy Molly Mermelstein's narration and of course, Piper Rayne's writing. I can't wait for the next series!

I enjoyed this audiobook!

5 Crazy Ass Must Listen Stars!!!!

This was a case of the audiobook was better than the book. Molly Mermelstein brought this story to life and gave it an added dimension that really had me changing my view of the story (see ebook review below). Everything about this book just improved so much with this narration. My views on the predictability and pacing of the story changed. The narration had me forgetting about my previous annoyances with the story. And while I knew what was coming after having read this, I still found myself gasping with Jasper's surprise.

eBook review 4/2017:
4 Crazy Ass Stars!!!

Yes! Lennon is here! I have been wanting to know her story as soon as she pulled out the first "toy". I needed to know how her "toy" business plans worked out, more of her story, and who was going to wrangle her into settling down.
I love the male leads that Piper Rayne concoct. Jasper had me squirming quite a few times but what really got to me was the surprise that was dealt. I never saw it coming. And that just made him even more appealing.
Now not to be a "Debbie Downer" here but this wasn't my favorite book of the Modern Love trio. It was good but other than that one "surprise", I found it to be predictable and the pacing slow at times. Now don't get me wrong, I still loved it. It just isn't my favorite.
I look forward to what comes next for Piper Rayne.

Great Narrator for a Great Story

No matter how many times I read Mad About the Banker, it is still my favorite Piper Rayne book. Molly Mermelstein did a fantastic job with this book and this whole series. The way she is able to portray all of the different voices with each one sounding distinct is amazing to me and I am truly impressed.

Lennon is my favorite character from the Modern Love series and her story is even better in audio. Ms. Mermelstein did an excellent job of portraying the emotions and it let you feel those emotions that much more. Piper Rayne wrote an excellent book and picked the perfect narrator. I'm sad that this series has ended but love that Piper and Rayne keep writing more. I can't wait to listen to the rest of their books on audio!
