POV: First Person - Dual

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.

Dexter (Dex) Truitt grew up with a silver spoon. As the heir of a successful venture capital firm, he was determined to make a difference as soon as he took over the company. But a move to be more in the public eye became a battle of private identities in order to win the woman of his desire.

I usually avoid books with wealthy characters because they tend to be stereotyped. But when I read the blurb, it definitely intrigued me with the promise of something different.

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

Dex was not your typical successful businessman. He was humble and relatable. I love the things he did to win Bianca's heart. It was funny and somewhat sweet.

“I’ve been trying to slow down since the day I met you. I seem to only have one speed when it comes to you, Georgy Girl.”

At first, Bianca appeared to be a judgmental bitch. But I like how she owned her mistakes and willing to compromise.

The story started really well. I love the way they met and what he did on the fly. And I love all the funny innuendos. I really enjoyed the first half of the book.

However, the second half kind of lost its steam. When the second roadblock of their relationship happened, the outcome was predictable, so whatever happened in between felt a little dragged on. I also wish for more sexiness.

"There is never a reason to hide the truth about anything. The truth shall set you free. Ever hear that?”

My favorite part of the book involved the two secondary characters - Bandit and Jelani. I like how those two added heart to the story.

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

Mister Moneybags is an amusing story of a couple overcoming secrets and lies that riddled their relationship. It would appeal to readers looking for a lighthearted story.
