I met Bianca in an elevator.
She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck.
The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed.
She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment.
Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn’t appreciate the simple things in life.
So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn’t want it to end.
I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email.
I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot.
I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into.
I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her.
And she was falling for two men.
Only, both men were me.
And when she found out, we were both going to lose her.
Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for what came after.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Mister Moneybags is another addition to the greatness that is the duo of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. I almost have no words for this masterpiece. I devoured it in mere hours and could not stop reading. I have no idea if my house caught on fire or what the hell happened around me. I. Could. Not. Stop. Reading. It’s one of the best books of the year. I laughed, I cried, I got hot and bothered and I said ‘oh shit’ a lot. I mean, a lot. It’s not an emotional angsty read, but the twist and turns had my heart racing and my breathing increasing. And I really needed a damn drink! You know when the perfect books comes into your life at the perfect moment? Mister Moneybags is that book for me. It was just what I needed! Buddy reading with my other half (my other blogging half ;)), also helped with the obsession that is Dex. Being able to vent, yell, cry and share your thoughts in real time just heightens the experience of an epic read. A chance meeting in an elevator has a sexy, rich CEO lying about his identity to spend time with a girl. It’s an understandable lie, but one that quickly gets out of control and seems to take on a life of its own. Then not only is Dex’s alter ego, Jay, spending time with the sexy Bianca, Dex is also talking and flirting with her. Bianca is attracted to both men. They are so different, but she can’t stop thinking about either of them. Dex can’t stand the pressure. He hates lying. But he doesn’t know what to do! Come clean and risk losing the only girl he’s ever had feelings for? Keep pretending and drive himself insane? What happens when Bianca finds out? Can Dex get her to trust again? What else does fate have up its sleeve for these two? I for one loved watching Dex go insane. His inner dialogue was fantastic and I pretty much laughed throughout the entire book. I mean who doesn’t love a good ball joke, a sexy man trying to whittle his wood, a greyhound who understands and a family web of secrets? I do. I loved it all. Dex is everything I wanted him to be. He’s sexy, smart, hilarious, dirty, insane and loving. Bianca is strong, independent and gorgeous. They are the perfect match.
” I have some balls you could massage if you’re in a pickle.”
“Don’t sound so shocked. Girls with brains use obscene four letter words and their bodies to win bets, too, you know.”
A v-parting tool? You don’t say? I have one of those myself.
I felt a pull to her that was there the first time I’d met her, even before the lights turned on in that dark elevator. We were connected in some way; I was sure of it. I just needed to show her it was more than physical.
“I could provide some warm cream if you prefer?”
“You’re such a pig.”
“All I heard was strategically sticking shit in various parts and edible… I’m good.”
