A new standalone from New York Times bestselling authors 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.
It was an entertaining tale, with plenty of that Keeland & Ward touch, that defines their work.
I have previously had the pleasure of reading a handful of books by these two ladies, and while I usually walk away from the book fully satisfied, this one just didn’t do it for me.
The major problem I had, was that I got so dizzy from all the twists and turns, that the story kept taking. It was a bit too much for me. I know I’m probably in the minority on this one, and I am okay with that.
It’s not that it was a bad read because it wasn’t.
In fact, it had great characters, amazing chemistry and a boatload of hilarious situations.
The hero, Mister Moneybags himself, was so unintentionally funny that I couldn’t help but love him.
And, after all, I still recommend Mister Moneybags to lovers of their previous books, because it was sweet and funny.
