Love it! and Ashton

*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. I liked how through Anna nightmares you find out what happen to her while she was with Carter, it really added to the story, and gave me the background information I need on Annabelle history with Carter.
As for the side characters, Nate was great made me laugh and I'm looking forward to reading his story. Dean was sweet, and as for Cater well he was just a psychopath who I really wanted to do physical harm to.
I will warn you Nothing Left to Lose is a lot longer than most NA books, and I mean a lot longer, in relation to page numbers we are talking close to four digits. When my Kindle said I had over 11 hours of reading I was worried that I would lose interest or that there would be a lot of unnecessary scenes, but I have to say I didn't, and there wasn't.
Overall I enjoyed this book, the writing, the plot, and the characters and despite the length I must admit I didn't I didn't want to put it down. I will say that some parts were a bit cliché at times, but I didn't mind as sometimes I need that in a book. The last 20% had me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails as I had been getting anxious as I wanted to know when and how Carter would reappear, I did at one point think Kirsty Moseley you better give me a HEA or I'm never going to read any of your books again. ;).
But don't worry after an action packed ending, there's just a really sweet epilogue that I loved and makes the 11 hours of reading worth it. If you are looking for a sweet enjoyable easy read that is definitely going to leave you with a smile your face, then I highly recommended this book.
