MISTER MONEYBAGS By Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward Review BLITZ
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 can only think of one thing that is better than the combination of chocolate and peanut butter...and that is the books written by two of my favorite authors, Penelope and Vi! Separately, they are amazing...together they are a power house writing team unlike any other! (In my opinion).
When you put two fantastic writers together like these two I know that I am going to get one epic story and they did NOT disappoint with this book. Dex is just amazing, every readers dream! He's successful, rich, sexy, funny and sweet.
The character were great! Well developed and had chemistry off the charts right away. Meeting a stranger in a dark elevator, not even seeing their face and have a 'spark' when you touch them...that's the stuff of fairytales right? That's what makes this so magical, they felt a connection to each other without even seeing the persons face or knowing anything about them.
That is probably why Dex decides on the spur of the moment to not let Bianca know that he is indeed the man she calls Mr. Moneybags. She has this preconceived notion about men in suits and Dex wanted to see her again, so that's when he came up with Jay.
This story is funny, witty, sexy and even has some Angst. Like you hope the couple will get there eventually, to the happily ever after, but it's the waiting that is the killer. And when a secret comes to light, it could very well threaten everything they've worked so hard on.
I really enjoyed the banter, the messages, between the main characters. I especially loved when Dex was getting jealous of his alter ego that he created and vice versa! Lol!! This seriously had me in fits of giggles every time Dex thought about Bianca with Jay.
***An odd sensation suddenly came over me. One I could honestly say I had never felt before. It was jealousy. But not just any jealousy. Jealousy of my own f***king self. Suddenly, Jay wanted to f**k up Dex in the worst way.
***Dex needs to win Bianca over from Jay.
As f**ked-up as that sounded, if she liked real me more than the fake me, it gave me a better shot at her accepting that real me was worth looking past all the lies I’d told. Maybe I was f**king delusional in addition to being newly schizophrenic. But at this point, it was the only plan I had.
This story will have you laughing, smiling, pulling at your heart strings and making you fall in love! Add an unexpected twist to the mix and you have the perfect story!
