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.
There are two things that you always know you’ll get with a Vi/Penelope novel. #1 a hero that will make you swoon and #2 a heroine that will give him a run for his money. Mr. Moneybags leaves you with a huge smile on your face and wanting so much more when it comes to the end.
It all starts in an elevator when Dex and Bianca first meet, except Bianca doesn’t know that Dex is really “Mr. Moneybags” whom she’s on her way to interview. Dex has always tried to stay out of the limelight, wanting to me known for what he does behind the scenes and not falling into the trap that was his father’s life. So when Bianca show her distaste for Dex before ever meeting him, he decides to become someone else completely.
Let the fun ensue! The only problem is he didn’t think that he and Bianca would actually hit it off and that he may want more from her. So how does he get out of this lie and still save face with the gorgeous Greek goddess that is Bianca.
From the first sentence, I was smiling and digging in for an adventure that I knew would be fun, flirty and full of sexy fun. Dex is magnetic and suave and you just melt thinking about him. Bianca sassy and a spitfire herself. I love the banter between her and Jay and how she opens up to Dex. This book was so much fun. Dex trying to “whittle” out of his lies. And then… there’s the big twist at the end!!! OMG! I read this book in one sitting and I wanted so much more from these two! Great read… as always.
