REVIEW - Billionaire Takes All by Jackson Kane

Billionaire Takes All by Jackson Kane
Available Now 
Amazon Universal Link



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.

“Your father is dying. The inheritance is no longer yours or your brother’s. If you want a chance at that money, you’re going to have to play by some… unconventional rules.”

Rules? Fuck that!

I didn’t get this far by following anyone’s rules.

“Only one of you can win,” The message said. “The other gets nothing.”

I did know one thing.

If this really was a competition between my brother and I for the whole King fortune, I was going to win.

That’s probably exactly what Richard is saying right now too. He and I hate each other, we have for years.

With my hand throbbing, I flexed my fingers. The final sentence of that damn message had flipped my life upside down and kicked it down the fucking sidewalk.

“Good luck, Lucas. You’re going to need it.”

One thing’s for sure, our sleepy town of Caldwell Hope is in for a rude awakening.

When the King brothers come back home all hell’s breaking loose.

Billionaire Takes All

3.5-4 Stars

What would you do if there was a wager on winning a bet with your sibling to take control over the family fortune?

Billionaire Takes All is a story about two brothers who are put into a situation where they need to win a bet their dying father throws at them to take control of the family fortune.

Richard and Lucas King are two complete opposites. Richard is your classic, well-educated CEO, tall, dark and handsome. Lucas is your classic bad boy rock star, rough around the edges and sexy.

I enjoyed the overall story and the journey these two brothers go through. Watching them both try and outwit the other was fun, but what I loved the most is the realization that they both come to within themselves and about who they are. I liked the fact that this was in dual POV. We get to see both Richard and Lucas’ side unfold as the story progresses.

I have to admit, I would have liked to see more depth to the main characters and secondary characters and a little more plot development as well. I felt that some areas needed work as they were left hanging with little growth. The story had a little bit of everything, but just not enough for me.

Overall, a good debut novel.

I received an ARC for an honest review.
