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.

When Bianca is stuck in the elevator on her way to interview Dexter Truitt, she never guessed she’d meet cute bike messenger business owner Jay Reed. He charms her and before she knows she’s going out with him. Little does she know that Jay is really Dex, her elusive CEO of Montague Enterprises. As she gets to know both men, Dex starts to feel guilty and wishes he could get out of this mess. Will Bianca ever forgive him for misleading her?
“It took weeks, if not months, to get into this place.
Unfolding my cloth napkin, I said. ‘I’d ask how you managed a reservation, but I assume you can pretty much get whatever you want in this city.’
‘Well, if that isn’t the most ironic statement of the year. I most certainly cannot get whatever I want. If that were true, I’d be underneath this table right now with my head between your legs.’”
I wasn’t expecting this story when I first started out. For the first 75% or so everything progressed as I guessed then bam! I never knew all those twisty, curvy things were coming! I loved how Dex pretty much was “gone” on Bianca. He fell hard and didn’t want to let her get away. It seemed like fate brought the two of them together. There were so many things I enjoyed about this story. Dex’s relationship with Jelani. Everything about Bandit. Dex’s obsession with the Europeans. It was truly just a fun story.
Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward’s collaborations have definitely yielded some complex romantic comedies. Whenever I start one, it always seems like I think I know everything that’s going to happen then something comes at me out of left field. They keep me guessing and that’s something I always like in the books I read.
