Mister Moneybags ~ Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

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.

 I really liked Mister Moneybags. It was super cute, funny and sexy. It’s amazing the preconceived notions we have about people. Whether that is from past experiences or things we are told by others. There are many times people are thought of as mean or snobby, but they really are shy. The same can be said about the rich and famous.
Mister Moneybags is on the elevator with Bianca and she has no clue. Not until an unexpected situation causes her to get in an awkward conversation with the sexy voiced man behind her. This awkward conversation divulges Bianca’s preconceived notions about the man she is about to interview. I loved this exchange and it made me giggle when I read Dex’s point of view. His panic that he wanted more time with Bianca, but knew it would be over the minute the interview started, was super cute. While the idea to pretend to be someone else was not ideal, it did make for some fun and interesting exchanges.
Bianca and Dex’s relationship has a rocky start, but Dex was completely taken with her. He was willing to do whatever he could to get close to her. Even go so far as finding her hobbies and trying to make some of them his own. As their relationship grows, so does the drama. There’s ex issues, family problems and skeletons that come out of some old closets. The twists are some that I definitely did not expect. Totally threw me for a loop.
