The Banker (Modern Love) (Volume 3)

The Banker (Modern Love Book 3) by Piper Rayne is another 5 star read for me and 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.

Since I received the ARC, I have read The Banker at least five 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!  You need to go and get it!
