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.
Preconceived notions…everyone has them, and while they can sometimes be harmless, those biases can lead people to make illogical decisions – ones that alter who they are and what they want in both positive and negative ways.
Dex Truitt – the owner of a multimillion dollar empire – remains a man behind the curtain, elusive enough that no one knows who he truly is or what’s real or fictional about the rumors of the infamous Mister Moneybags.
But Bianca George is about to change everything she thought she knew about this rich and powerful man, and as she learns who the “real” Dex is as well his alter-ego, she’s torn between these two men who in reality are the same person, and when the truth is discovered, she’ll have to decide whether or not she can move past the lies and realize that she truly does know the complicated man who owns her heart, her body, and her mind.
The progression of Bianca and Dex’s relationship definitely does not follow a straight path…it’s not an easy course to journey because there are a multitude of outside forces bearing down on them and forcing them to face harsh truths, not only about themselves, but about those they love as well. And, while Dex is forced to “come clean” sharing life-changing information a number of times, the most difficult aspect of the truth is that it puts his relationship with Bianca in an even more tenuous position than it already was, which could upend all of the work they’ve done to move past Dex’s lies and the fighitng chance they had to be with one another in all ways.
There are a lot of twists and turns in Mister Moneybags; the story line will definitely keep readers on their toes as they try to make sense of all of the new information that is learned, not only about the hero and heroine but also about those closest to them. There’s quite a bit of drama/angst to contend with due to the nature of other people’s secrets, and while some readers may find it all a bit over the top, it illustrates the harsh reality of secrets and lies and the price people unknowingly pay when other people keep them.
I really enjoyed Dex and Bianca’s story; it’s fast-paced and intriguing, and the chemistry between Dex and Bianca resonates off every page they’re together. But as much as I adored Dex and Bianca’s conversations and passion for one another, the character who absolutely stole my heart was Jelani; his honesty, his bravery, his way of telling Dex not what he WANTS to hear but what he NEEDS to hear made such an impact on Dex and the fact that Dex honors Jelani’s wisdom and his craft truly made this story special.
I can’t wait for another one of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward’s sexy alphas and the woman who brings him to his knees!
