“I’ve never felt connected to anyone like I do to you. It feels almost chemical. We haven’t known each other for that long, but in some ways, it seems like a hundred years.”


Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward have done it again with yet another amazing collaboration with ‘Mister Moneybags.’ I absolutely love when these two authors work together and I always anticipate highly when one of their releases is close to hand. ‘Mister Moneybags’ did not disappoint, it was fun, sexy and somewhat more emotional than I was expecting, but I love being surprised by stories. Bianca and Dex drew me in from the very beginning, I loved these characters and I just could not get enough of them.

Bianca and Dex meet in an elevator. That whole scene was absolutely hilarious and I can’t remember the last scene in a book where I laughed so hard that I snorted. The witty banter between the two characters was classic and I instantly knew I was going to fall in love with them. I certainly wouldn’t object to getting stuck in an elevator with Dex Truitt.

“I also whittle.”
“Yes, whittle. You know, the ancient form of woodcarving. I carve various things from wood.”

“What the fuck? Hiking or distilling couldn’t have popped into my head first? I didn’t know the first thing about wood. Well not that type of wood anyway.”

Bianca is a journalist for a business magazine called the Financial Times and was on her way to the top floor to interview CEO, Dexter Truitt, AKA Mister Moneybags; that is until the elevator abruptly stops. While stuck in the elevator Bianca meets a beautiful stranger, who is none other than Mister Moneybags himself.

Dex soon becomes aware of the fact that Bianca does not like the elusive CEO and has a preconceived idea of who Dex is. Due to this, Dex decides to keep his identity a secret from Bianca and not divulge who he actually is. Dex introduces himself to Bianca as Jay Reed, bike messenger. He created this alter ego as a way to find out the truth behind Bianca’s preconceived beliefs about him and her hatred for rich and powerful men.

“This lying thing was really beginning to come naturally now. It wasn’t unlike criminal behaviour – starting out with petty crimes – one day you’re whacking a gumball machine on its side to make a plastic container with a broken ring pop out, and before you know it, you’re robbing a bank at gunpoint.”

The interview that was to take place between Bianca and Dex never happens. Dex contacts his secretary to have her keep Bianca waiting for forty five minutes and then to cancel the interview once she has waited for that time. Dexter however sends Bianca a message to reschedule the interview at eleven o’clock at night via email. Bianca agrees and they spend several nights emailing back and forth and hence Bianca starts to develop feelings for not only Jay, but also for Dex.

After digging himself even deeper with all the lies Dex has told Bianca, he becomes extremely remorseful and knows he has no choice but to come clean and explain the reasons for creating his alter ego. He knows there is a very good chance that he will lose Bianca forever considering she has no time for liars.

“My hole I had dug for myself had just bottomed out, and I had no idea how I was going to get out unscathed.”

I absolutely loved this story from start to finish. Dex was the perfect hero for me. He was sweet, sexy, hilarious and had a deeper side to him. He absolutely stole my heart with his attempts to win Bianca. If you love strong heroines who have no problem speaking their mind and calling people out on their lies, then you will absolutely adore Bianca. Without going into too much detail, her revenge for Dex/Jay was absolutely priceless. If you’re anything like me and a huge fan of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward’s talented work then you will love this story. I highly recommend it.
