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 Thoughts: 

After going through a huge reading slump, I am so glad I found another book written by two amazing authors. Mister Moneybags is not at all what I expected it to be. And that is in a good way.

Dexter Truitt “Dex” and Bianca George are two characters who are different as light and day. Bianca is feisty and fun while Dex is a multimillionaire mogul. The initial meeting betweenthe two of results in Dex lying about his identity due to Bianca’s preconceived notions about huge rich men. This results in Dex leading a duel identity. However, it is adorable to see Dex acting really sweet as being Jay and also being himself as Dex. Once, the lies are out though, what Dex does to win back Bianca is amazing. Bianca is another great heroine. She is not a pushover and is really fun. She acts logically and was a great character to read. Also, she is a great match for Dex.

Plot: The plot, which includes the romance, is really good. It not exactly slow paced, but I am really glad that unlike Keeland’s and Ward’s book where the characters immediately go and start banging, they waited till they were in love. The twists in the book were unexpected. However, my only issue was that is was just entirely to coincidental. It was like the twist was just not really a twist, but places the pieces together, which took up a good third of the book.

Overall, this was a great read. I enjoyed this novel and it was fun being with the characters.
