Book Review: Nothing Left to Lose

Nothing Left To Lose by Kirsty Moseley: 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 five 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’.

Whairigail's thoughts: *****5 Hearts?? No. An UNLIMITED NUMBER OF HEARTS would still never do this amazing piece of work justice!!!*****

My sixteenth was anything but sweet; it was more like the passage into hell on earth

This book is - hands down - my favourite book ever written. I know, I know - but it truly mean it.

I never offer more than 5 stars to a book as all other books I rate 5 stars have a flaw or two. Not this one.

It is utterly flawless, incredible, outstanding, beautiful and out of this world amazing.

Since I'm waffling on about how great this is, I suppose I better get on with the review.

Annabelle Spencer was a young, carefree teenager who was very much in love with her boyfriend Jack. Jack takes her to a nightclub for her 16th birthday. When there, they meet Carter - a disgusting criminal with a penchant for young innocent girls.

Carter gets what he wants - Anna - and murders Jack in front of her.

I couldn't breathe. My heart was breaking into a million pieces as I replayed the last couple of seconds in my head. In my mind's eye, I saw Jack's face as the two guys' hands left his body and he started falling. I'd never seen anyone look more terrified or helpless.

Carter kidnaps Anna, holds her hostage and does unspeakable things to her. Terrible, horrific and scarring things.

Fastforward a few years - Anna has been rescued and is attending College to major in Art. Her father is a US Senator who is running for Presidency and Anna is working her way though bodyguards like clean underware.

Enter Ashton Taylor - SWAT graduate, badass and all round SEX GOD

I turned back to Ashton, who was standing there looking like a cocky, arrogant Greek God

Ashton is assigned to be Anna's near guard - he must attend college with her, live with her and pretend to be her boyfriend.

Now...this would be simple IF Anna was willing to pretend and Ashton didn't feel like all his hard work in SWAT school had been for nothing.

Dont worry Ashton, he can't hurt me anymore, no one can. I have nothing left to lose

Anna and Ashton have a lot of obstacles to overcome - School, threaths to life, lust, anger, want and all manner of other things.

Can they get through these 8 months together and come out the other side?

Fcuk my life!This is going to be the longest eight months ever!

Anna and Ashton become Annaton and trust me - you will fall head over heels in love with this story and each of its charaters.

Everything was perfect and incredible

Just - go buy it folks, it is a true must read.
