Ridiculous. All I do is win and this

Billionaire Takes All was a standalone by Jackson Kane. It was my first book by the author.

It was a tale of two brothers who had been estranged for years. One was the polished head of a multi- billionaire corporation while the other was a messed up rock star. Their father was dying and he had one last request for both, which launched their competitive streak. In addition, one brother has a second chance at love, while the other was experiencing something new. It was a journey of forgiveness, red

I just lost my half of five billion dollars.

Five. Billion. Fucking dollars.

I crushed the phone in my hand, but the voicemail chimed in my brain like church bells at midnight. It was probably the same message my brother just got.

Boa história cheia de reviravoltas e cenas ótimas. Gostei muito e recomendo para quem busca uma história divertida e de fácil leitura.
Good story full of twists and great scenes. I enjoyed and recommend it for anyone seeking a fun story and easy to read.
This was a cute and enjoyable story.We loved both the main characters Richard and Lucas because they were fun and flirty and pranksters and they were complete opposites just enough to make things very interesting .

Richard was the serious one but, we loved seeing him loosen up a bit to enjoyed life round him and have a little bit of fun in the process even knowing a lot was on the line.

Lucas was a rock star and we found him to be floundering a bit but, after meeting his ex-girl from years ago we

***I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are 100% my own.***

Generally I give my rundown of the basic premise of the book, but really, I’m of two minds here. So, I apologize if I break my usual style for this review. Because of that, I’d give this book a solid 3.5 STARS.

We are dealing with dual POVs in this story, which isn’t unusual in a romance. But, in all honesty, I wouldn’t label this a romance…yet it’s still a romance. See, I’m of two minds. Let me address the rom

I absolutely loved this book. It was refreshing to read a full story from the point of view of the men. And it was refreshing to read such lovely romantic love stories written by a man. This is my first book by this author and it most definitely won't be the last.

This book is from the point of view of two brothers. That are pitted against each other but not for the reason you are made to think. It's for a reason that is beautiful, touching and unexpected. It's really hard to mention the
Interesting story! Two brothers, Lucas & Richard, are placed in a competition where the prize is 5 billion dollars. They have not seen or spoken to one another in 10 years. Their father is dying and he wants to teach them a lesson about just how important family is.
The competition's rules are mind-boggling and it's highly possible that Mr. King won't live to see exactly who wins this thing!

I can’t tell you how excited I was when asked to review the debut novel from Jackson Kane. Seeing the romance world through the eyes of a male author screams to me. So when I read the premise of the story, I could not wait to see how this man was going to portray the angst and emotions of two brothers being pitted against one another in order to win and secure the inheritance while weaving in the elements of a romance.

This was a beautiful story centered around the love a father has for his child

Great debut book by Jackson Kane & one that got e hooked quite quickly.

Billionaire takes all is story about 2 brothers Lucas & Richard. A dark family secret tore them apart several years ago, resulting in a fierce hate for each other, one that either of them were prepared to fix.

Lucas, the bad boy rock star who lived his dream, except he always felt like he was missing part of his soul. He paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep the past a secret & out of the media, he lost the love of his life, his

Bold Brothers go from loving to competing to hating in search of the Billions

Great debut novel by Jackson Kane. The flow kept you engaged page after page. The surprising twists and turns we easy to follow and made it hard to put down! And now a bit about the story...

Lucas and Richard couldn't be more different. Looking back neither is happy they've grown apart, but both blamed the other and had no plans to repair their relationship. Until they got the call from their father's lawyer. Both rushe

The prize is 5 billion dollars.
Only one brother will win.
The rules are simple and crystal clear.
But this is no game.
Will it be the reckless rock star, or the relentless CEO?
Or will the true cost of winning take away the one thing that matters most?

Jackson Kane is a new author, and literally knocks it out of the park with this engaging story of two brothers, their relationship scarred by the pain of loss, bitterness, betrayal and jealousy, who are forced to compete for an inheritance from their

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.

In this book we meet Richard, Lucas, Gloria and Molly. When this book opens up we find both Richard and Lucas have been called home to speak with their dying father. Both are shocked by the stipulation that their father has put in his will. Only one brother can get the entire King fortune but to get this money he must be the first one to produce and heir. Both men on their own try and change their father's mind but he is determined. So the bot

OMG.....what a fantastic book!! Brand new author that I happened upon and so very happy I did!! I read the teaser and knew I had to read this book. This is one of those books you can't put down once you start.

Richard and Luke are as polar opposite as any two brothers can be and hate each other. Throw in the fact that they are competing with each other for a 5 billion dollar inheritance and the gloves are off. Their dad is dying and wants nothing but happiness for them. He has a real strange way

Title: Billionaire Takes All
Author: Jackson Kane
Series: standalone
Genre: contemporary romance
Rating: ***

This was a sweet contemporary romance, with a slightly different spin in that it follows two brothers, written from their POVs, along their respective relationships. Sort of a male-centred double romance, I guess, which was somewhat refreshing. The sex scenes were nice and steamy (but there could have been more!), and this was definitely a heartwarming, light and easy read with a HEA.

I received this for my honest review. When I started this book I was hooked as Billionaire Takes All has the things I love to read about : bad boy rocker, powerful billionaires, second chance relationships and a motorcycle club. This story is about the King brothers who are returning to their hometown at the URGENT request of their dying father. The senior Mr. King has decided to set up a little competition between his two boys for their inheritance which is that the first son to get a hometown ...more

What a great debut book from Jackson Kane. I've found another new author to follow. Soon as I started this book was gripped with Lucas and Richard. Their banter, fights and competitive streak really kept me gripped. This book made me laugh, made me frustrated and made me blush with the hot sexy scenes.

I loved how this was written from both brothers PoV, it was interesting reading their thoughts and see what they were planning in the sibling rivalry. I loved how this was a great story of second c
What we have here is a classic case of sibling rivalry. When Luke - the down on his luck rockstar and Richard - the playboy workaholic are summoned back home to discuss a change in their fathers will, they are both equally stunned. Be the first to produce an heir - or lose it all.

This book is told in the dual POV which is a diff twist. The moral of the story is less about winning an inheritance and more about slowing down and seeing that their is infact more to life than the all mighty dollar.

Fighting and Competing for the Win

Wow! I fell totally in love with Lucas and Richard King. Two brother who are so similar yet so different. Both told by their father that they have to compete for their inheritance.

Coming back to their hometown after more than a decade away the King brothers has to fight for what they feel should be rightfully theirs.

The love. The passion. The sexy heat levels. The easiness to adapt to the characters. I fell in love with the story and everything about it. Gotta

It had me from the beginning. The way Jackson wrote this in both brothers pov's was great. It was interesting to see what each was thinking and going to do next. The hardships and learning what family means to each is inspiring. But the realization of the lessons they are taught throughout is the most important! Would definitely recommend! Congrats on your debut novel Jackson!!! ...more

I was one of the lucky ones to get an arc from this very talented author and I was so excited I did because this book was absolutely amazing I could not put it down. Jackson knows exactly how to pull you into this book with some some epically hot sex scenes. Cannot wait for more from this amazing author

A dual POV... Not ur typical male female.. But 2 males finding love with the woman of their dreams..
I loved it! Just wished the brothers both had a seperate book but that didnt take away that the story flows nicely.
A Rocker & A Businessman Walk Into a Bar…

In this case the rocker was Lucas King and the businessman was his brother Richard King and even though it was a biker bar they walked into that’s not the point. Lol These brothers have lived totally different lives for some time now but it was their father making a change to his will that made things happen. You would think the old man crazy but it was that development that brought these boys back home.

Brothers Richard & Lucas have nothing but hatred towards each other, and after a call about their father dying making their inheritance put in to a competition, it only gets worse. See, in order to get the whole shebang, they have to knock a girl up, and it's game on between the two since the one who is too lose loses all the money.

Billionaire Takes All is the first book in the Caldwell Hope Billionaires series. The book is also the second edition. The book is written in dual point of view between Lucas and Richard, who are brothers. The POV is definitely different from the norm. We usually see this POV format between the couple. Their father is dying and in his will the first brother to give an heir will receive an inheritance of five billion dollars, while the other gets nothing.

Sibling rivalry makes for a VERY INTRIGUING read! And with Jackson Kane at the writing helm, this story only aims high and has you gripped for quite a ride. This book takes two estranged brothers on a life journey of forgiveness, redemption, and enlightenment. This story is well developed with characters meant to make their mark and have true staying power. It took me on a roller coaster of emotions and anxious to find out the conclusion. Truly a very captivating read that left me wanting more.

This story is of two brothers in a competition with one another and I loved reading it from both of their point of views throughout. Can you guess by the title that only one will win? There's so much I want to say but I refuse to leave any spoilers. If you're the type of reader that enjoys sexy alpha males & a happily ever after ending then this book is perfect for you. It's a must read, page turner from beginning till the very end. This is my unbiased and voluntary review. ...more
