Publisher's Summary

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author J.S. Scott.

A-list movie star and billionaire Julian Sinclair learned from past tragedy that life doesn't come with multiple takes. Now that he's figured out what he wants - in the lush form of redheaded Kristin Moore - he's got one chance to claim it. Between working as a medical assistant and filling in at her parents' bar, Kristin has no time for pleasure. So Julian is bringing her to his brother's Vegas wedding, where their mutual attraction can finally get a starring role.

What happened in Vegas has followed Kristin right back to Amesport, Maine. In the space of one magical weekend, the leading man in all her X-rated fantasies whisked her off to Sin City for breathtaking sex, followed by an "accidental" marriage she doesn't remember. Kristin fully expects Julian to demand a quickie divorce. But instead he's daring her to go all-in. To gamble everything on a love that might be too good to be true...or the best, wildest adventure of their lives.

The Billionaire Takes All

Julian and Kristin are perfect together. He literally has to whisk her away from the bar to his private jet to get her to go to Vegas with him for his brother's wedding. Mix in motion sickness and a freak out before they even get on their way and he knows he is a goner. Vegas has a way of getting out of hand when they have too much to drink and once home and weeks later when Julian shows up with the news they married in Vegas and an annulment is not an option and she is stuck with him. He is all in and now just has to convince her. When a Sinclair falls, he falls hard. Another keeper!

BUTTERFLIES & SMILES THANKS TO A GIFTED AUTHOR

Julian Sinclair is a hot Hollywood star and he first kissed Medical Assistant Kristin in book 4 when he desperately tried to escape some frenzied fans.. and from then on he becomes fixated on 'getting to know' Kristin a whole lot more intimately. But these two are polar opposites and constantly verbally spar with each other - so how can Julian break through Kristin's prickly exterior she keeps just for him to see if there is something more between them. He thinks he'll get an opportunity at his brother's wedding to her best friend which is planned to take place in Las Vegas.. but Kristin is busy working trying to keep her parent's Bar/Grill afloat and isn't going. So what's a rich, sexy, charismatic Billionaire to do?.. well he pleads, teases, tempts.. and finally bodily removes Kristin from the Bar, tosses her into his waiting limousine and jets her off to Vegas.

At first Kristin doesn't believe Julian is serious as the two of them aren't friend and have been arguing and sniping at each other since their first meeting - so she just can't believe Julian's promises, pleas and pretty words. Julian has been mesmerized and tantalized by the stunning redheaded vixen since they were first introduced and it's now or never to tell her how he truly feels. Julian ignores Kristin's negativity, continually compliments her and bares his soul about his feelings.. but Kristin has a giant inferiority complex born from childhood bullying and doesn't think she's good enough for the super-rich talented famous Movie Star. However, for one wild night she's prepared to live the hilife, have a short taste of the dream and have hot sexy times with Julian.. but too much drink, mixed with sizzling chemistry, leads to a situation that neither of them predicted.. and that only one of them wants. So Julian asks for three months.. and a very reluctant Kristin doubts it'll last three days.

An easygoing light dual POV romance with smooth banter, sexy times and two very different people who manage to successfully fall in love with each other despite tempers, despite the odds, despite the heroine's anxieties and despite their difference. Julian is an open book when it comes to his emotions and feelings for Kristin.. he's loyal, attentive, kind, considerate, thoughtful, playful, passionate and totally in love with her. But, no matter what Julian says to her, how he acts around her and what he profoundly promises her, Kristin flately denies the possibility he could actually be telling the truth, that he could be happy with her in the long run and that he could be all hers.. until there's an eye-opening ultimatum. I did find Kristin's continual rejections, denials and doubts of Julian's heartfelt feelings quite frustrating as well as annoying - to the point where I wanted to give her a damn good shake. Good narration.

Worth a credit? Yes, a high quality romance.. but at $7.34 there was no need to use one as I just bought it and saved my credit for a higher priced book. It's been a great series so far and I can't wait to hear what emotional cocktail Ms. Scott has created for the unsociable and scarred Xander which should be coming next.

A very satisfying story!

Once again J.S. Scott has penned a very satisfying story with this new installment in the Sinclairs series. I‘m truly addicted to this author’s special blend of sweet, heartwarming romance and hotness, her stories somehow always managing to melt my heart and feeding my senses page after page. 

The Billionaire Takes All is about A-list actor Julian Sinclair who learned from past tragedy that sometimes there are no second chances in life and how important it is to seize the moment. And what Julian wants to seize most is the one woman who eludes him : a certain sassy, stubborn and sexy as hell red-head named Kristin. When the perfect opportunity arises in the form of his brother’s wedding, Julian « kidnaps » Kristin for a week-end away in Vegas.

Kristin works tirelessly two jobs. She’s a medical assistant and she’s running her parent’s bar to help and support them. For her, fun isn’t really an option. When Julian starts to pursues her endlessly, Kristen cannot resist his charms and irresistible sense of humour, even though she believes that they have nothing in common, and that unlike the other members of the Sinclair clan, a man like him will never settle down in a small town like Amesport. Little did she know then that there was so much more there beneath the surface when it came to Julian and that what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay there. And that sometimes you do something that will affect the rest of your life…

This was another enjoyable read by an author whose love stories continue to excite me and make me crave for more. I liked the fact that all the focus was on the growth of the emotional connection between the characters, two alike individuals unknowingly looking for the same things in life. Loved the chance to catchup with characters from the previous books as well.

If you're looking for a romance novel with lots of steam, smexy times, a lovable and devoted alpha male, and a strong, competent female lead with a spunky attitude, then this book is for you!

Great Read

Billionaire Takes All by J.S. Scott was another great book in the Sinclair series. Julian and Kristin are destined to be together but they don't want to admit it. Everything changes for them when they go to Vegas for Julian's brothers wedding to Kristin's friend. I can't wait to read more of this series.

Good but the H is dangerously obsessive!

4 Stars for me!

My rating range of this story... 3 - 4 Stars
If significant, why? The H throwing an obsessive tantrum towards the end.

Main Character Ratings...
H = 5/10
h = 7/10

Narrator Rating(s)
M = n/a
F = 7/10
If below 5/10,why?

Was cheating involved? No
Any major triggers to be aware of? Brother facing PTSD

Scenes with heat... Yes
What point does it start? 35%
How much of the story? 10%
Anything beyond M/F? No
If yes, explained

Heat Rating... 7/10
Clean or Fade to Black - 1 or 2
Normal to Descriptive 3-5
Detailed Descriptive Sex - 6-7
Um, Wow, Beyond Descriptive Sex - 8 or above

Was there so much sex or unrealistic sex that you rolled your eyes and/or skipped forward? No

The back story... The MCs have sparred since they met. They end up going to Vegas for his brother's wedding and sparks fly

The Romance... Kind of builds throughout the story but I worry about her safety (see final notes).

The drama explosion... The H goes off half-cocked
Did it feel Real, OK or contrived? Very contrived
Was it OTT? Completely
Separation involved? No
Was it resolved properly or rushed? Ok

Final Notes... Most of JS Scott's stories will get 4 Stars from me as I do like her characters and how they deal with real world issues.

In this case, the H is dangerously overly obsessive to the point of of punching out windows when something doesn't go his way with the h. He threatens serious violence against anyone who looks, talks, touches the h. Maybe it is just me, but that type of obsession would be a massive red flag.


HEA or HFN?

The Billionaire Takes All

I liked reading this one because yes she was forced into a marriage, they worked thru the marriage after the lie. No Sinclair man gives up any women he sets his eyes on, wines and dines her to get her love.

A sweet story

both Julian and Kristin have plenty of fire. Add a good dose of sass towards each other and you end up with a winning story. And what girl/woman on the planet would pass up the bathtub that is described in this book? Happy reading

Not your normal romance

What happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay in Vegas. This was different from the others but no less sexy, hot and romantic.

Loved

I love listening to Elizabeth Powers.

I fell for Julian, he wants people to see him and not what the public wants to see.

He falls for nurse Kristin, who doesn't care about his money or fame or him.
Having a accidental marriage in Vegas, the two of them fight the chemistry.

hypocrite

I don't like Kirsten character too annoying and hypocrite, I wish there's more a plot on the story. it's a pity I really like Jullian character and expect more in the story. Kirsten character is too shallow and nothing especial on her compare to the othe Sinclair's womens.
