Release Day Blitz – Review + Giveaway: The Banker by Piper Rayne

Happy book birthday to the banker (modern love #3) by piper rayne

Check out my review for this hilarious rom-com and an amazing giveaway on the blog today!! ❤

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.

This was a romantic comedy that started off on a really high note.

We are first introduced to Lennon, an unapologetic female who designs sex-toys for living, and is looking for funding to kick start her business; she makes no excuses for her personality or her sexuality – meaning she not only comes off as open, but sometimes crazy as well. She is not getting support from her straight laced family, but even their disapproval does little dissuade her from her goals.

In short, Lennon is a heroine I ended up admiring the heck out off; not just for her opinions but for herself.

Jasper is a typical hot guy; successful in his business, he is dominating  but he never expected a woman like Lennon to cross his path – a total opposite to him, yet he feels drawn to her. But he has a big secret, a secret that could change the course of the game!

The connection between Lennon and Jasper was strong; I adored their banter, the sexual tension between them – and I honestly was rooting for them at the start.

But that’s when the “twist” came (I can’t reveal without spoilers!!) – this where the book took an almost 360 degree turn; and I felt that it lost the vibe that a light-hearted comedy usually has, even through all the drama.

This is my first book in the series – and while the “twist” wasn’t handled with the expected panache of a rom-com author; it certain;y was an enjoyable read – and one day, I just might pick up the first two books in the series to assuage my curiosity.

Cheers, PaviMy Rating (1)

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two established authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?

We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon holed into a specific outline. We wanted to give readers a story without them assuming how the story will flow. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it.

What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
