*****5-Amazing start to new series stars*****

The lines are blurred between justice and vengeance in Christy Reece’s NOTHING TO LOSE, the first book in her brand new Justice Grey Series. In a well-drawn and incredibly riveting story of despair and redemption, there’s a war raging against evil doers who use their power and influence to manipulate the legal system for their benefit. This author is a pro at blindsiding readers with twists and turns they’ll never see coming. At times it will most lik

★★★★ “Holy heart failure, Batman!” Why have I never read a Christy Reece book before? This one kept me up until the wee hours reading.

What a wonderful first-in-series Romantic Suspense. Kennedy O’Connell’s story starts out with a ton of sadness, and I knew it going in. So, I tried to distance myself from her character at the beginning – at least until her hardships were over. Didn’t work! I ended up with a tissue to my eyes anyways.

Can I just say how much I love Christy Reece and this book is no exception.

This is an awesome start to the new series. Not as dark as the LCR books, but it still had enough twists and turns to keep me guessing right to the end. There is, what I think will be a continuing arc throughout the series with Grey Justice (whom I just loved. Can't wait to learn more about him).

Nick and Kennedy were great. The thing I loved the most was that Christy didn't rush their getting together. They were friends

Ms Reece has seamlessly transitioned into the world of justice in her new series. Grey Justice, which is also the name of the series, is a man with secrets that runs a small organization who finds justice for those that can’t get it through normal means. There are plenty of things you come to expect from this author – tragedy, heartbreak, great characters that you instantly come to love, and an intriguing story.

Christy Reece is one of my favorite Romantic Suspense authors. However, I have been lacking in this genre the last couple of years, and haven't read many books in this genre, while it was one of my favorites years ago. I was shocked when I realized that the last time I read a book by Christy was back in 2013. So I decided that I would read three of her books before the year is over. Nothing To Lose is number one and I can't wait to read the next book in this series.

This book made me realize why

Since it's opening day for baseball as I type this review, Let me just say, Christy knocked it out of the park- home run! I loved this book, such an amazing start to a new series.

I am amazed at how Christy keeps you focused on the main characters and their storyline, but very subtlety introduces others you can't wait to read more about. I am intrigued by so many others, I hope she is busy writing their story's now!

Kennedy and Nick we're amazing and hot together. They more than earned their HEA,

3.5-4.0 stars. This is a favorite author and I liked the story, an intriguing page turner. The h/ Kennedy going to get justice for her husband and going undercover seemed unbelievable and the resolve of the case tied up a little too neatly and quickly. Liked Nick but wasn't sure how a happily married wife whose husband is murdered then falls for his best friend would play out well, but it does. Enough time elapsed that the romance worked. The Grey Justice part of the story will be interesting fo ...more

I have always been a CR fan, but she has outdone herself this time. in Nothing To Lose, you get it all. Romance, in an unlikely place, suspense, chuckles and tears. I absolutely loved this story and can't wait to read more in this series. I admit, I am very intrigued with Grey himself.

He wanted her. Heaven help him…how he wanted her.

Kennedy O’Connell knows what loss is. Losing her parents as a young child, growing up in foster care all she wanted was a family of her own one day. And all her dreams came true when she met her husband and they were about to start their own family. Until someone crushed her dream, murdering her husband and in her grief she lost their baby and her only way to stay alive was to run. Her only choices were to cut ties with everyone she knows and t

I have always enjoy Christy Reece's writing. I found her a few years back by happy accident and I have enjoyed each and every book I have picked up by her. Nothing to Lose is a new series and I cannot wait until the next installment! I want to know much more about Grey Justice, and I am hopeful that H/h Nick and Kennedy will be a part of the series along with some of the other secondary characters. Nick and Kennedy were an amazing couple and I enjoyed getting to know them. I love her spunk and h ...more

This was another awesome book by Christy Reece. This book made me cry in the first few chapters, which is highly unusual, but it just got me even more interested in seeing what would happen next. I knew the entire book wouldn't be this sad. All of huge characters are great. Really loved Kennedy's character, would like to think I would be able to be as strong as she is. Nick is one of the great hero's of Christy's books. If all of the Justice books are even half as good as this one, I can hardly ...more

Mea culpa, I wish I had gotten to this sooner, having mistakenly thought this was a legal romance that I typically drag my feet into. But Christy Reece’s ‘Nothing to Lose’ surprised me when I began and couldn’t stop.

The concept here is somewhat similar to Reece’s LCR series—victim advocacy, to put it in very, very broad terms—, only that it’s funded by a billionaire who wears many hats, carries a messiah complex and tries to remain shrouded in mystery as he goes along picking out people to help

How is that this book was rated by less than 300 readers? It is surprisingly good. Maybe not the best book I have ever read but still I spend wonderful time with it.

Even though some events are a bit impossible or unbelievable, it is an interesting and quick read. I enjoyed the suspense part, the whole idea is likely not the most innovative but it is definitely well-written and developed.

I also like the characters. The romance part is quite nice. However I would prefer it to be more developed.

This is a new series from Christy Reece with a totally new feel and sound to it than her other books. Filled with loads of mystery and surprising twists and turns, it also introduces a hot alpha mystery man with both heroic and dark qualities. The differences in the writing style of this series and her other romantic suspense books in my opinion elevates her to her own place as a Patterson in the romantic suspense genre.
Victoria

4.0 RATING - Well written romantic suspense that focused on one woman's journey from loss and grief to vengeance. Nothing To Lose had a good balance between suspense and romance. It wasn't sex heavy but the steamy parts were very well written. A good start to a new series.

How would you react if your life were pulled from under you viciously and with intent to hurt? Would you fight back or just accept it as fate dealing a bad hand? Unfortunately for Kennedy O’Donnell, justice went the other direction and she had to make a tough choice to either disappear to save her life or bring justice to her slain husband and her lost baby.

Teaming with her best friend Nick Gallagher, and with the powerful presence of Grey Justice, a billionaire and philanthropist, behind them,

When you have had everything you love torn away from you, you either bend or break.....fight or run. Kennedy O’Connell came out fighting, determined to make the person who ripped her world apart pay no matter how long it took her.
Detective Nick Gallagher was targeted to die but was able to cheat death. He too, came back fighting mad, especially when he realizes that his best friends wife, the woman he has been secretly in love with, is alive and well and planning some pay back on her own.

While Justice is kind of a Noah in LCR, this is a complete new and very interesting new series from Ms. Reece. There is no dull moment in it, there are lots of twist and surprises. It starts on a sad note and end with a bang. It’s an incredible story that will leave you wanting to know more about some characters.

While Kennedy was the main character and a strong lead, Nick was the perfect balance for her. His volatile nature was muted when she was around, they grounded each other. He was a comple
