I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
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.

This book grabbed me so quickly, thoroughly, and unexpectedly. It all starts in a fated elevator and some balls. Intrigued? Yeah, you should be. I enjoyed getting to know the different aspects of Dex as both himself and his alter ego. It’s hard to say which guy I liked more – the bike messenger or the business mogul. The easiest answer is probably both because each personality highlighted aspects of Dex.
In retrospect, my memories of Bianca were completely overshadowed by Dex. While she is a nice woman (she has a little bit of a Pride and Prejudice feel to her), I found Dex to be so much more dynamic. The way he navigated his self-inflicted landmines is really what stuck out in my mind.
I pondered for a while on the title of the book – did it really fit this novel? While Dex is a Mister Moneybags, I think I had a preconceived notion of what the plot would be. I can happily report that the book exceeded my expectations and that the title fits, but not in the traditional sense. And maybe that’s the takeaway from this story; don’t judge a book by its cover…er…title. You never know what you’ll get, and you just may be surprised!
