First of all, I'd like to point out that I wasn't expecting Dostoevsky.

➦This, unfortunately, wasn't my favorite book by this author duo. I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed the first half of the book. It was sort of ridiculous but at the same time gripping and funny. The second part of this book was so... sooo... dramatic and gave off some strong soap opera vibes. And that's just never the sort of thing I enjoy in books.

Bianca George worked at a financial magazine. As a journalist, her latest assignment was to interview the elusive Dexter Truitt who she dubbed as Mister Moneybags. What supposed to be a straight forward interview became complicated when it turned out he was not what she expected.

Anybody said Penelope and Vi?? Goodie!!!! When I hear this combination I know the book will rock and I am dying to get my hands on it. After Playboy Pilot, I knew that it will be difficult to read another book as good as it, but I tried to keep an open mind and see where it takes me. I named PP one of the best books of 2016 alongside with Carter's character, so Mr. Moneybags had a lot of work to do to impress me.

It did, but it didn't.. I am not making much sense right? So, let's begin.

Vi and Penelope are what I consider the dream team author duo. Separately their books kick bookish ass, but together it's like magical unicorns are uniting while eating cotton candy and dancing in glitter gloss--it's freaking epic. It's almost as if they can do no wrong and I must admit that I am obsessed with their stories. When Mister Moneybags landed on my kindle I wanted to throw a full fledged party. I was that excited.

Another short review...

Love this author duo, liked this book but definitely not my favorite.

First half was fun and exciting, loved watching Dex & Bianca fall into each other. It went a little overboard the last half of the book with drama. I think it took a turn where I lost interest and honestly started to shake my head at the poor circumstances that just kept getting dealt to this couple. Ending epilogue was good =))

It was Jay’s mouth she thought she was moaning into, but every part of me was kissing her as Dex.

The HOT man in the cover takes my breath away every time I look at it!


I loved the first half of the book, their funny and witty meeting in the elevator was amazing! And I was "Yeah babe, that's what I'm talking about!". I had so much hope that the second half would have been even better, full of sexting and hot, sweaty, dirty sex scenes...but the joke was on me obviously...://

Bianca and Dex met in an elevator.
After this very adorable, funny and sizzling encounter they both don't want to say goodbye yet, and they spend a beautiful day together.
But of course Dex kind of lied to her - by saying his name was Jay. And that he's a bike messenger.
It was a stupid spur-of-the-moment lie, because Bianca was on her way to interview the real Dex. And after what she said about Dex in that elevator, poor Dex just couldn't reveal his identity.

How did something start off SO DARN SWEET and take that very ODD, STUPID turn?!! We all knew how it was going to really, what's with that plot anyway?

Charmingly fun, appealingly sexy and addictive. I couldn’t peel myself away from this story and just when I thought I had it all figured out the authors throw a curveball I never saw coming.

Successful businessman Dexter Truitt didn’t want to repeat the sins of his father and was focused on making a difference with his company, partially achieving this by hiding himself from the media.

Mister Moneybags is another home run from Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. Right from the start I was enamored by Bianca and Dex. Their meet-cute was rom-com perfection and the burgeoning relationship between both Dex and Bianca and "Jay" and Bianca was sweet and intriguing.
