BookWhisperer Rating:


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’.

our thoughts

Nothing Left to Lose was a must read from the moment I discovered it. After my experience with The Boy Who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window I had to see if this author was truly as talented as I believed. So Is It?????? Heck yes!!!! Kirsty Moseley has just proven yet again her talent and abilities. Actually, she just might have proven even better than I remembered. Her story line is one that will stay with you long after the last word. Annabelle taking center stage will demand your most
compassionate of emotions as you walk through this vivid display of her past. It is horrible to see the level of violence and abuse that a person can actually survive.  I use the term survive loosely, because she appears to be a very thin shell of a person until Ashton comes along. It is heart breaking to see this young woman that can not even let another person touch her without having a panic attack. Even her own parents are
estranged to this young lady, and what remains of her life surrounds her in fear and loneliness. When Ashton enters the picture there is no doubt for readers the direction that this will take. Suspense is not a key component of this novel, but the more of a building and love of such incredible depth that readers will find themselves moved. Nothing Left to Lose is extremely long, but it is constant steady pace that will carry readers through. With every step forward readers become more engrossed into the story that will absorb you into it's very pages. I love
everything about Ashton and Annabelle, and craved every minute with them. I do feel in the end that the story was possibly longer than actually necessary, but that fact does not hinder the quality of the story. I just felt that once I had completed it could have been edited to develop just a bit quicker. Both stories that I have read by Moseley have that in common. As I said before this does not hinder the story, and readers will overcome the length because of the excellence of the story that is building. Nothing Left to Lose is your HEA, but it will take you quite a journey to discover. Kirsty Moseley is a BookWhisperer Favorite Author, and you can look for more to come by this incredible author.
