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.

I've read a few books by writing duo Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward so I picked up Mister Moneybags without even reading the blurb, knowing that I would enjoy it. I wasn't disappointed either... watching Bianca fumble through meeting a guy in an elevator, and Dex getting to know a girl as Jay and via email. It was a catastrophe waiting to happen, but it was amusing to watch!

Bianca was a girl who had strong morales and high standards. She had no time for liars or cheaters, and she made her opinions clear early on. She took her job seriously and was determined to know the real Dex Truitt. It was interesting to see the chemistry grow between Bianca and both “Jay” and Dex. She was confused but knew she wanted to explore these feelings further.

Ahhh... Dex! I get why he begun that charade with Bianca, but he kept digging himself down deeper and deeper! I could see his feelings were genuine for Bianca, and he would often be jealous... of himself! But deep down, I could see that he was a good guy and would do all that he could to win Bianca over.

What I didn't expect were the twists! Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward through in a few big issues that had me gasping! Just as I got past one moment, another was thrown at me! I just couldn't believe how distorted things turned out to be for both Bianca and Dex. But their love for one another was something that did not wavier. Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward showed me once again why they are such an amazing duo. They build such strong characters and throw into some complex situations that have your mind spinning! Bring on their next project, I'm excited! 

*** Swoon Thursday was first bought to us by YA Bound. Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

I love the banter between Bianca and Dex... The first swoon made me giggle, the second one, every girl should feel that beautiful that your man wants to devour you! 

“I think I should wait out here.”
“What? Don’t be ridiculous. Come inside.”
His eyes dropped down to point to my breasts. I was fully covered, but my silky robe wasn’t doing a damn thing to hide my pert nipples. They were poking through the lace of my bra and thin cover up, looking as anxious and excited as I felt. I folded my arms across my chest. “That’s your fault.”
“My fault?”
“Yes. If you weren’t all...” I waved my hand up and down. “… all dark and sexy looking, they wouldn’t be saluting you. And you kissed me. What do you expect?”
He grinned. “Dark and sexy looking?”
I rolled my eyes. “Just come in and sit down.”
“Okay. But I can’t guarantee I won’t be all sexy looking.”

“You look…” he trailed off. Then made a face. “Maybe you should change?”
I frowned. “You don’t like my dress?”
“I fucking love the dress.”
“I don’t understand.”
Dex walked to me. “You look beautiful. Red is definitely your color. But that dress… I’m going to get myself into trouble tonight, and I know it.”
