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’.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Shocking acts of violence committed around her 16th birthday have left college student Annabelle Spencer—the daughter of the man destined to be the next president of the United States—broken, enraged, and incapable of intimacy or trust. Nothing Left to Lose tracks the complicated relationship between “Anna” and her new bodyguard, Ashton, a recent graduate of the SWAT team academy who sees his unusual assignment as a ticket to his dream job. Author Kirsty Moseley doesn’t shy away from exploring the nightmarish experiences that have shattered Anna’s psyche, but her hard-edged romance ultimately offers hope that love really can conquer all.
One of the best books I have read. Couldn’t put it down!
I preferred the first book
Published on whattpad .... They have taken so much of the book out and changed characters name - if I hadn't read it then it would have been a good book. With the unedited book I went through 2 boxes of tissues with this one I was
Waiting to cry but it just didn't happen ... Still a good book but has been a hell of a lot better ...... X
I was hooked from the first page the only downside is how rushed the ending is.. there should have been another chapter for what’s happened not a couple of rushed pages
