Mister Moneybags by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland


Well now, just you take a look at him and tell me that you don’t want to open him up!



What its all about

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.

What I thought

Well now. What can I say, I did it again. Or maybe I should rephrase that. They did it again.

I am not always a fan of joint ventures. Sometimes they have an air of trying to hard. Never with these two. Actually when I first read one of thier books I didn’t even realise that it was two authors. Someone said read this and Tanya couldn’t one click fast enough.

They are hilarious. Im not a fan of comedy books but that isn’t what they write, their books just have humour laced through them. I think that because alot of it is every day humour or sarcasm is why it appeals to me so much. So I suppose you are wondering what I am whittling on about – (get what I did there? If not that means you haven’t read the book yet!) when I said they did it again? I forgot that they dupe me. Their titles – I love them, they make me think that I am going in and its going to be all light hearted and funny and then bam just like that they punch me in the feels. Every.Damn.Time. I have to hand it to them, they do it well.

I had a list of things I had to do today. I didn’t do any of them. I started Mister Moneybags when I was still in bed this morning. I was just over half way through when I was still in bed this afternoon (thank God the kids are on Easter break) and I finished it while sitting at the table when I should have started dinner 90 minutes previously. It is that good. I couldn’t put it down. There were parts that I was wetting myself laughing, parts where I was cringing and shouting “don’t do it” at my kindle and bits where I wasjust so choked up my nose was snotting. Yes I know you really didn’t want that visual but didnt your mammy ever tell you that you don’t always get what you want!

Anyway if you want a really good book to put an end to any productivity you might expect to have then let me thoroughly recommend Mister Moneybags, you really won’t regret it. Your husband might when he gets no dinner – but you won’t!
