Book Description

***Due to heavy subject matter and sexual content, this book is recommended for ages 18+***

Nothing 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’.

More About the Author

Kirsty Moseley has always been a passionate reader since she was a little girl, devouring books overnight, barely sleeping and paying for it at school the next day. Writing has come similarly to her and once she discovered Wattpad, she finally plucked up the courage to post one of her stories. Seven million reads later, she self-published her debut novel THE BOY WHO SNEAKS IN MY BEDROOM WINDOW, which later became one of 10 Finalists for the 2012 Goodreads' Choice Awards, Best YA Fiction. Shocked and overwhelmed by the response, she later published her second and third novels, Always You and Free Falling.

If she had to sum herself up in one word, it would probably be 'daydreamer' - but unlike most of her school teachers, she doesn't necessarily view that as a bad thing. After all, she read somewhere once that books are like waking dreams....

She lives in Norfolk, England with her husband and son.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it! and Ashton 7 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
*I received an ARC in exchange for honest review*

******4.5 Stars ********

I was looking forward to reading Nothing Left To Lose, being a fan of Kristy Moseley, and enjoying her other books Loved The Boy Who Sneaked In My Window. This one had been on my `to be read' list for a while, and the only reason I hadn't read it sooner was because it was only available on Wattpad. When Kristy announced it was going to be published and released as an eBook I was excited.

I liked Annabelle Spencer, what she went through at the hands of Cater had been traumatic, and shocking, and my heart when out to her. I could understand why she was so defensive and acted the way she did, but I did get I did get a little frustrated at times with her because of some of the things she did, and some of her choices. I just wanted to give her a shake her, and say "Can't you see that Ashton is crazy about you."

Ashton Taylor is very swoon worthy. He was a sexy bad-ass SWAT agent; He was sweet, kind, intense, loyal and very protective loved him. I liked the way he was with Anna he was good for her. He was the first person she lets get close to her since Jack death. Aston breaks down her defenses, make her smile again, he has a way of making her feel safe.

I liked the storyline it had a bit of everything suspense, action, drama, angst, some steamy moments. I laugh; tear up, got cross and frustrated. Told from both POV means I was able to get an insight into what both were thinking, and the depth of their feelings. I thought Annabelle and Ashton relationship was cute. I loved the romantic scenes those parts always put a smile on my face.

3.0 out of 5 stars I prefer kirsty's other books by far! 5 Jan. 2014
By Leah x
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kirsty Moseley is one of my favourite authors and her books never fail to impress until I read this one. I loved the characters in the book but the story was just too predictable and way too lengthy as the same story could have been told using half the pages in this book. I would give her other books ago first maybe 'the boy who sneaks through my bedroom window' or 'free falling' as I loved them and this book may put you off reading her other great books!

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok so far... or something. 3 Dec. 2013
By zanna
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm currently only at about 40% of this on my kindle - it seems like I have been reading forever though!
Reading the book description before buying, I thought this showed a lot of promise - promise that hasn't quite been lived up to. I can only assume what is going to happen in the remaining 60%, Kirsty's books have been fairly obvious so far, I can only assume this will be no different.
I do not like either of the main characters. Anna is selfish, irritating and stuck up. Ashton is quite pathetic for someone with his special training.
One thing about Kirsty's books is her need to end sentences with "...or something". Her word count would be A LOT less if she took that out. That's my main complaint!

2.0 out of 5 stars lost the plot 7 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was very hard going. I really struggled to finish it but I wanted to find out where Kristy Moseley was this was going with this..

So what did she give us?

Sweet sixteen is a day that every girl should remember, a passage into womanhood and the beginning of a journey but for Annabelle Spencer March the 12 was the day that would be embedded in her life for ever and for her 16th birthday Anna would be left with deep and irrevocable scars instead of a happy ending to a night out.

Jack Roberts wanted to give Anna a birthday she would not forget and had taken her to a nightclub to celebrate. Anna loved Jack with everything she had in her young life and that night she would give Jack her body. He was good and kind and a loving generous boy. Their lives were planned, finish school, college and careers. Jack would become a Doctor and they would get married. Perfect.

Then they met Carter Thomas, murderous, angry Carter, drug and arms dealer and what started out as a special journey for Anna and Jack very quickly became the highway to hell. Carter wants Anna and her dream night turns into her worse nightmare when she watches Carter Thomas snuff the light from Jack systematically beating him to death and taking Anna.

10 months later, after being subjected to Carter's rules and life, she is found. Annabelle Spencer is not the same, and never will be. She is now a cold hard and broken. Carter is in prison for Jack's murder but due to key evidence is due for a re-trial. Carter's obsession with Anna has not ended with his incarceration and nothing will stop him from taking her again.

Three years on and Anna's father is running for presidency.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my best reads of 2013 6 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
(ARC received from author in exchange for an honest review)

I love Kirsty Moseley's books and I was so excited to read Nothing Left To Lose. I just hoped that it lived up to my expectations. Did it live up to my expectations? Oh yeah and then some!

I loved Anna's character, she was vulnerable while being strong. She went through a horrific ordeal that lasted for almost a whole year and when she came out of it she was no longer the spoilt daughter of two high profile parents. The way Kirsty has written and developed Anna through the book makes you see her as a real person. You experience her emotions as Anna does, you fall in love with her as her strength and determination grows. She digs into your heart a little and I may of left bit of it behind with her.

Ashton, it makes a really nice change that Kirsty has written Ashton as a regular nice guy. Don't get me wrong he is kick ass and if I needed someone in my corner he's the first person I'd pick BUT he's not a bad boy turned good for the right girl and I thank Kirsty for recognising that not all book boyfriends need to be reformed bad boys. Ashton has also stolen a lil bit of my heart, how can he not. You really need to go and fall in love with him yourself to understand.

I was taken on an emotional roller-coaster with this story. Not only was it emotional it was so full of angst and suspense I need a new manicure job. This is not a short book, in fact it's one of the longest books I've read because I tend to get bored and end up either skim reading or giving up. I have a short attention span. However, Kirsty kept me hooked from the first word until the last and I read this whole book in one sitting.

This is without doubt one of the best books I have read this year.

I loved the dual perspectives. Normally authors make it really annoying by retelling the exact scenario with a couple different words. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed this book
Didn't think I was going to like it at first. Thought it was going to have too much about the abduction and abuse. It didn't and consequently went on to be a good read.
