Review: Mister Moneybags by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

****4.5 Stars****

This book was very much one with two personalities. Firstly it started out so fun and light hearted. I fell in love with Bianca and Dex from the very first moment they met in that elevator.

Dex in particular, stole my heart. He got himself in a bit of a situation that I could only love him more for. He wasn't what I would describe as your typical fictional CEO/Millionaire kind of guy. He was funny, sexy and playful for so much of this book.

Sex doesn't play a huge part in this book and in all fairness I didn't feel it suffered in the slightest for it.

This fun story continued to be light hearted for quite some time until a certain situation occurred. At which time this book then took a completely different path. I do have to say that I am a massive fan of Vi and Penelope's collaborative books. Their books are virtually a guaranteed 5 Star read for me, but I did feel like the characters lost some of their personality for a while. I did however love the potentially taboo storyline that was going on and if it wasn't for the fact that I felt the book lost its way a little, part way through (and it did pick back up pretty quickly), I would have totally rated it the full 5 Stars.

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.
