Review: Mister Moneybags by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Publication Date: April 8, 2017 

Series: Standalone 
Rating: 4 Stars 

Official Blurb: A new standalone from New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. 

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.

Review: I am always ready when I find out that Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward have a new book coming out. It’s like a kid on Christmas morning and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Dex.

Bianca and Dex actually meet in an elevator and right away Bianca catches Dex off guard. She is very judgmental when it comes to rich successful billionaires so Dex immediately wants to prove her wrong. He is attracted to her like no other so therein starts the lies that continue on throughout the book. Dex decides to create a whole new persona to prove to Bianca that not all billionaires are evil. But what happens when the lies catch up? Can Bianca forgive Dex for what he has done?

This book was really good the first half. I laughed, swooned and fell in love with Dex and Bianca. The second half was a bit much at times and I found myself lost in the drama from time to time and forgetting the actual story. Overall, I adored the chemistry between these two. Even though I would have liked to see Dex put forth a bit more effort, I was still happy with the outcome and I loved the epilogue as well. Can’t wait to see what these two amazing authors bring next.
