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.

MY REVIEW

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, successful, intelligent and sexy. A dirty-talking mountain of hotness that was able to not only keep up with the elusive Lennon, but he tamed her *gasp*. He embodied so many wonderful characteristics I look for in my leading men: compassion, understanding, sex appeal, dominance, etc. Loved him!
★★★ A character that I shall not name, but who you will absolutely fall in love with. How could you not? Honestly, if you don't fall in love with this character, you are cold and heartless and we can't be friends.
★★★ The banter. The pacing of the plot. The insight I gained from Lennon's character into what shaped her into the woman she was. Can I say I adored the time her mom had her back? Epic!
★★★ The almost non-existent drama between the main characters. It led to this story having an easy and almost laid-back kind of vibe, which made it easier to enjoy what was developing between Jasper and Lennon.

There were plenty of insanely hot times, plenty of laughable moments, plenty of swoon-worthy episodes, and plenty of good times to be enjoyed. I had a blast reading this one and look forward to reading more from Piper Rayne!!
