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.

MISTER MONEYBAGS definitely went a direction I wasn’t expecting. It was a twist that let the characters develop their relationship without being truly physical and understanding they may not be able to walk away from each other.
Bianca meets Dex in an elevator when neither one of them is at their very best…which leads to Dex pretending to be a bike messenger because he thinks sexy Bianca would never give him a chance if she knew who he was. But Dex soon discovers Bianca is not one to trust easily and his pretending could get in the way of the only woman who has tempted him.
I really enjoyed Dex and Bianca. Despite running a multi-million dollar business, Dex was comfortable with just being himself: perverted, funny, charming and completely twisted up over Bianca. It was hard to be mad at him for keeping up his charade, especially when he wanted to murder his alter ego out of sheer jealousy.
Bianca tried to fight Jay/Dex’s charms but he managed to sneak beyond the walls she had built up. You could understand why Bianca was leery of anything with Dex, but I found myself crossing my fingers hoping she gave him a chance.
The twist in the storyline between Dex and Bianca’s families threw me. I think the storyline could have help up without it, but it did give Dex and Bianca the push it took to understand exactly how they felt for each other and what they were willing to do to be together. To me, it established how strong their relationship emotionally. They had sexual chemistry but the turn to this story made it so they had to build on their emotional connection to each other rather than the physical.
Another great entry from this fabulous writing duo with charming characters and witty dialogue that keeps you turning the pages.
