Publisher's Summary

A sexy romantic comedy standalone in the Modern Love series.

Who knew sleeping with the enemy could be this fun?

Was the one night stand a good idea?

Well, no. Probably not in retrospect.

In my defense, I had just moved back into my grandparents' house, I'd lost my dream job, and a guy on Tinder had stood me up. It was like life had suddenly stamped 'loser' on my forehead.

So when the guy behind the bar started giving me the look...you know, the one that promised I'd be screaming his name into the wee hours of the morning? When that guy also has the perfect amount of scruff on his chiseled chin, biceps bulging out of his t-shirt, and a cocky grin you knew he'd earned in the sack...when he gives you that look, you don't bother to figure out what your six degrees of separation are. You jump on that horse and ride it!

Pun fully and completely intended. And accurate, by the way.

I fully admit to feeling sorry for myself and acting impulsively, but by the time I'd figured out who the bartender was, I was already falling for him.

It's truly makes me tickled pink!!!

I read each of the books in the Modern Love series on the day that they were each released.
This one is probably my favorite because we meet these 3 girlfriends who are each in search of a unicorn cock! Whitney and Cole's story is sexy, sweet, asking and it just sizzles!
This was the first time I listened to Molly Mermelstein. She's amazing. I loved all of her characters that she portrays and look forward to more of her performances!
Highly recommend this first audio book for the Modern Love series. It's so worth it! Piper Rayne takes you to San Francisco and this author certainly depicted the city perfectly and I ought to know since I live here!

Loved this story!

I have reread the ebook version of this book countless times and absolutely love it each and every time. This audio version brings the emotions, from laughter to angst to joy so well. I love Whit and Cole and how their story of hate to love shows that anything is possible when it comes to the heart. The fullness of the story is there and so is the serious hotness!

As to the performance, I only have two things that struck me as a critique. First, there were several occasions where a new part of the narrative or dialogue was missing the beginning of the word. For example, when she says, "Whitney," all I heard was, "itney." This may have been a technical issue, like the recording had a lag. Second, there were times where I could obviously hear the narrator's puffs of breath as though she was leaning too close to the mic. In my head, it felt like I felt the puffs of air hitting my ears. Those two things did not take away from the story for me. One huge thing I loved about the performance was that she captured the different characters well. I could tell the difference between the dialogues of Whit, Talia, and Lennon. This is not always my experience with audiobooks. It made my experience of listening to The Bartender more enjoyable.

I have high hopes for more audio versions of Piper Rayne's books! This was so much fun and Piper Rayne rocks!

Love is in the air

Cole and Whit are a great couple...eventually. Whit hates Cole before she even knows who he is. Cole’s brother is getting married to one of Whitney’s best friends and the two of them have to help the bride and groom with plans. Great story and great characters... especially Lennon.

Great Audio book!

I have read The Bartender but I really enjoy the audio book! Molly Mermelstein really brought the characters to life. I didn't mind that she didn't try a male voice for Cole since if it isn't done well, it detracts from the listening. Cole and Whitney are great together. I think Cole is definitely a "unicorn". Piper Rayne is a wonderful author and brings humor along with drama in the story. I'm certainly hoping the rest of Piper Rayne's books are made into audio. I received a free copy in exchange for my review.

I'm completely charmed!

I loved the audio version of this book, Molly did such a fantastic job narrating it! It really gave me a completely different perspective on things.
It's such a fun and sweet story. Listening to it just reminded me how much of a doll Cole is- I just adore him! I had a few little issues with Whitney, but girl got her act together there at the end.
While there was a little push and pull between Cole and Whitney, mostly on her part, this is a light, easy read that will make you smile.
Reading over my review from when I first read the book, one of my thoughts was that I wanted more Cole and Whitney at the end, and after listening to it I still kind of feel that way. The epilogue was cute and did a great job of building towards the next book.

It was fantastic!

I love the Bartender,I actually have all of the books in the Modern Love series. If you haven’t read them you need to. The Audiobook was just a great bonus, it made the story come to life even more and I really enjoyed listening to it. The narrator at first was a little stiff for me but I warmed up to her. I would definitely recommend this audiobook. I hope the rest of Piper Ryane books become Audiobooks. I am voluntarily leaving my review after listening to this arc Audiobook.

Audio Virgin no more

This was my first experience listening to an audio book but it won’t be my last. I very much enjoyed listening to story that I had already read and loved.
