Nothing Left To LoseNothing Left to Lose is a sexy New Adult romance dealing with love, lust, loss and grief. First uploaded on Wattpad, it surpassed 25 million reads before publication.

Annabelle Spencer's life is every girl's dream. She has wonderful parents, great friends, and of course the perfect boyfriend, Jack Roberts. That all changes on her sixteenth birthday when her life comes crashing down around her. Her dream night turns into a nightmare when Jack is murdered right in front of her, and she's kidnapped by his murderer, Carter Thomas, a big time drug and arms dealer.

After ten months of being with Carter, she's found, but the experience has totally changed her. She's no longer the happy-go-lucky girl that everyone used to know and love; she's now cold, hard and suffers from night terrors. It appears that Carter broke not only her body, but her spirit too. A shadow of her former self, her slogan for life is now: 'If you don't care about anything, then you have nothing to lose'.

Carter is currently serving time for the murder of Jack, a conviction that Anna helped secure. But his retrial is coming up because some key evidence appears to have been tampered with. Unbeknown to Anna, death threats are being received by her father, the Senator. It appears that Carter is still interested in Anna and will stop at nothing to get her back.

Ashton Taylor is brought in to protect her. He's a newly qualified SWAT agent, a bright spark, the agency's new golden boy. He is assigned undercover, posing as her boyfriend. His job is to help her through college and keep her safe until the end of the trial in eight months' time.

For three years she has been the broken, damaged girl, refusing to feel emotion or pain, but can Ashton help her rebuild her life and finally deal with the grief of losing her childhood sweetheart? Will he be the one to make her see that life is, in fact, worth living and that not all men will hurt her?

All the while, the shadow of the trial looms over the both of them, taunting them, reminding them that it isn't over yet. After all, Carter Thomas will stop at nothing to be reunited with his 'Princess'.

The Review

I have to say I honestly don't know where to start with my review; I don't think anything I could say would actually give this book any justice at all! I do have to say that this wasn't a review book but one I chose to purchase and read from the recommendation of others and my oh my was it worth it! The first Chapter had me drawn to it in so many ways and it was one of the most emotional first chapters I have ever had the honor of reading. I'm going to start with saying with a line like this: "He was right: the uniform was defiantly a panty moistener" how could you go wrong?

This book caused a roller coaster of emotions and anticipation. I cried, I laughed and at times was so angry that my I-Pad could have been seriously damaged. Kirsty has done an amazing job at capturing your attention from the very beginning, keeping all of her characters true to themselves. I have to say I felt the immense amount of turbulence that Anna experienced through out the story. This book is about the journey of someone who had truly given up on ever finding happiness and put up all of her walls to guard herself from ever been hurt again. Will the walls come down or will she put them up higher to stop anyone from every seeing the real Anna?

Anna experiences so much as a young girl, which many of us couldn't even imagine in our worst nightmares. Kirsty does a wonderful job at making sure you understand Anna's logic and why she behaves and does the things that she does. Nothing Left To Lose has that realistic feel to it because you are inside Anna's head. Kirsty has done an amazing job and capturing all the emotions that someone going through that situation experiences. Next is Ashton! WOW....Ashton! What can I say the super sexy S.W.A.T agent who has just graduated from his training! The "player" that never expected to fall in love with the one he was "babysitting". Ashton is so sweet and so patient, he has a great compassion with Anna which no one has every shown her before, he refuses to give up on her testing behaviors and promises that there is no way he will give up before his allotted time. I think that is all I can say about him; HOT is an understatement but honestly I can't elaborate any further.

I sobbed on so many occasions and felt like I was on the edge of my seat knowing that it wasn't over and that something else was coming but never knowing what to expect. Kirsty never gave anything away keeping you constantly anticipating but when things did happen it hit you smack bang in the face like you never was actually expecting it! The tears would come, to the point that someone even asked me on the bus if I was ok. I would recommend this book to everyone, it has just the right amount of everything in it. One thing I found is that it wasn't overpowered by sex however there was lots of sexual tension, the chemistry between the two characters was palpable.

I really don't feel that my review has done this book enough justice. I absolutely fell in love with Nothing Left To Lose and can not express enough how pleased I am that Kelly over at Kelly's Kindle Konfessions recommended this book to me! It was certainly something I needed as I could feel myself getting in to a bit of a lull.

Oh and I nearly forgot its been well edited, my per hate wasn't present at all! Well not that I noticed LOL! NO TYPOS!!!!

I want to thank Kirsty Moseley for a well written and emotionally powerful story! I don't feel that thank you is enough or ever will be for the power I felt from this book and I really hope that you think this review has done the book a great Justice.
