Review - Mister Moneybags By Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

MMB banner 1  


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.

My 5 Star Review  

       OMG, I just loved this book! Dex and Bianca were perfection and reading this book just put a huge smile on my face! First, these two meet in the best possible way. Bianca is running late to interview Mister Moneybags. The new mystery CEO who Bianca has already made up her mind about. She is expecting this older, crabby, a-hole who loves money, but she gets so much more. 

On the way up to the interview, the elevator stalls and she is trapped in the elevator with a man. A man she didn’t even realize was there because she was too wrapped up in running late. So with the lights out her and mystery man talk and get to know each other a little. This is how CEO Dex Truitt realizes the lady coming to interview him for Finance Times in the elevator and already hates him. 

Dex is quick on his feet and decides to lie to her. He cancels the interview and pretends to be a regular guy and asks her out. I swear this story snowballs so freaking quickly I was dying laughing and wondering how the heck he would ever get his way out of this. See Bianca despises liars, she actually mentions it many times and as the story continues you can just see Dex’s lies building on each other as he tries to maintain this regular guy persona. 

I know it’s hard to believe after I just said Dex lies and pretends to be someone else, but I just loved him. I swear he was pretty freaking perfect when all was said and done. I know, I know such a contradiction, but he is! Yes, he makes mistakes, but after all the humor falls away and he grovels, he is perfect. Dex is open, honest, and not afraid to share how he is feeling. I loved how open he was with Bianca and how he was dead set on earning her trust.

This story is really the perfect mix of fun, sexy and heartwarming. The beginning starts out super fun, but as their connection builds the story just turns into something so sweet and my heart was melting. There are a lot of twists and the reveals just keep coming, but I felt it helped the story continue to move quickly. 

I am a super fan of these two writing together. They deliver every time and highly, highly recommend jumping in as soon as possible!
