Mister Moneybags by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward Review


5 Smooches

a4-3 a4-3 a4-4 a4-5 a4


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 am a huge fan of this duo of authors. I have loved Penelope Ward since her very first book released and with these recent collaborations I have before a lover of Vi Keeland too. Mister Moneybags is the fouth book they have worked together on and possibly the best. This is an amazing not a love triangle, love triangle.

When Biacna meets “Jay” she is drawn to his slightly deviant personality and his fun nature sealed the deal and they start to date. At the same time her on line interviews with “Mister Moneybags” aka Dex get more and more personal and she finds herself looking forward to her nightly talks with Dex. But Dex is Jay, he created a fake personality when finding out the woman he was interested in, Biaca, had no interest in a man like Dexter Truitt. But now she wants both men and both are liars which is one thing she cannot stand.

The plot was fun, sexy and unique. I was unable to put the book down and found myself quickly rooting for her to choose Dex which was silly since both are the same guy. Penelope and VI did a fantastic job of writing a fresh take on a mistaken identity story. Trust me, this is one to read.
