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.

3.5 ‘WTF just happened?’ Stars
I’m not sure what my hang up is lately but blurbs will be the bane of my existence; I’m sure of it. I’m little a bird with something shiny!! And then once I finally pounce on my shiny little object it turns out to just be a piece of tin foil rather than the diamond necklace I was hoping for. This book just didn’t do it for me. And I’m rather disappointed because I’m a huge fan of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. Together or separate, I truly love their works. But this? This was a huge bomb for me.
The blurb. It all starts there. That’s what lures you in. Entrances you saying ‘pick me! pick me!’ The thought of unknowingly meeting someone in an elevator that I was supposed to interview and that person was so intrigued by me that he decided to pretend he was another person to get close to me; because of the preconceived ideas that I had about the original man……wow. That’s hot. Also a recipe for disaster because you KNOW the truth will come out at some point. And you KNOW that the person is going to be pissed about the deception. What I did not expect was for this deception to come out and the truth revealed 15% into the book!!!! The blurb made it seem that this is what the story was about. Of course it also spoke of a few curve balls, but nothing- and I mean NOTHING- prepared me for what was to come.
I was more than a little pissed about said curve balls that were thrown into the story. Now don’t get it twisted, the story flowed. The story itself wasn’t choppy or anything but …….these curve balls? They made it less and less appealing. At least to me it did.
I literally talked out loud while reading this book. Things like “Are you fucking kidding me?” (I said that multiple times) and “What the ever loving fuck am I reading right now?” Unfortunately I read this book because the blurb appealed to me and of course I know the authors are (usually) kick-ass so it was really a win-win for me. Not so much.
