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.

~ 5 Georgy Girl Stars ~
What a dynamic duo…It absolutely amazes me what these two authors can come up with. Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland will always be auto read authors for me. I have never been disappointed with either of their books and their co-authored books.
Mister Moneybags was no different. I absolutely LOVED this book. Just like all the other books in this series….Penelope and Vi haven given us a fun, entertaining and captivating storyline. The characters are lovable and relatable and you just want to be a part of their lives. I laughed with this book, but I also swooned, yelled and even teared up a little. I love when they can touch on all of my emotions. I have to say I never want their books to end.
Mister Moneybags is the fourth book in their Cocky Bastard Series (Cocky Bastard, Stuck-Up Suit, and Playboy Pilot) but each of these books are complete standalone. Meaning there are no overlapping in characters or storyline. Yes we do get a cameo in this book from a previous Cocky Bastard (I won’t say which one) but, if you haven’t read any of the previous books, you won’t be lost or feel you are missing anything. This story is completely original and focuses on a new couple.
As always these two authors writing style mesh perfectly together. You truly can’t tell who writes which part. I loved the pacing of this story and how they worked the characters together. I loved the banter between Dex and Bianca. I also loved that they threw in a surprise in the story and took this in a totally different direction then I was expecting. Yes the first part of the story is fairly predictable, but that isn’t the case as the story unfolds 😉 Once I started this book I found it really hard to put it down. I will tell you that this book had a really strong storyline, in which this story isn’t loaded down with a lot of sex scenes. Now don’t get me wrong Dex will melt your kindle, but it was done in a different way than I was expecting. To say this whole book was different then I thought it would be is an accurate statement, but I love when a book can surprise the readers.
In this story we follow the chance encounter of Dexter Truitt and Bianca George. They met when the elevator they are in stalls and they are thrust into darkness. Bianca is there because she is supposed to be interviewing Dexter for her magazine that she works for. Bianca was running late so she didn’t even notice someone in the elevator with her until he talks to her when the elevator stalls. Dexter Truiit runs a multi-million dollar company and has kept his personal life private….including his looks. So not knowing who she is stuck in the elevator with, Bianca doesn’t paint Dex in a positive light. But Dex is fascinated with Bianca and doesn’t want to let her walk away….so he introduces himself as Jay. What Happens when the truth comes out?? Will Bianca be able to forgive Dex for lying?? Can these two have a HEA??
Step into the world of another “cocky bastard” and find out those answers. You will not be sorry!!!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves an engaging storyline with fun loving characters that happen to meet by a chance encounter. Oh and if you love animals in your stories, you NEED to meet Bandit!!!! Don’t wait start this series today….It is a MUST READ!!!!
