From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Cocky Bastard and Stuck-Up Suit, comes a sexy new standalone novel. 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.
FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
The start of the one was so good, and I was enjoying it. Even though, it did have an uber rich guy involved. It didn’t go the 50 rout at all (does every author have to have a billionaire?) thank goodness! This one pretends to be a bike messenger and proceeds to get himself into one hell of a jam. A liar is never who you want to be when trying to start a relationship. Just saying.
So everything is going well then along comes the big twist, nope I’m not going to blow it, and yes it did fit with the story a bit, but it was somewhat off-putting. Let me just say it right now gag, yuck, no. Luckily the taboo thing never happened, or this would be an entirely different type of book, that I would not be reading EVER. GAG
So, had the twist not been in the story it would have gotten a five but because he didn’t care one way or the other, did I mention gag, I am giving it 4 Boundless stars.
