Countermeasure is The TBR Pile's 2012 Book of the Year. COUNTERMEASURE is a recipient of the indiePENdents's Seal of Good Writing. WARNING: Contains scenes of mature subject matter, graphic situations and language. Reader discretion is advised. The suspense driven COUNTERMEASURE SERIES combines full-length novels and Bytes of Life short stories about sexy, technologically inclined men and women. The series is filled with heart-stopping danger and enough twists and turns to make a hair-raising rollercoaster seem tame. In the series, Trevor Bauer, a tough as nails NSA geek, and his even more tenacious love interest, Cassandra James, are on a quest for clues in the mysterious disappearance of Trevor's parents. Joined by fate, their search drops them into the mysterious and violent world of data espionage, one that tests their love as they sweep the world with romance, sex, and ingenuity to find answers that will have the power to change their lives forever. In the first novel of the COUNTERMEASURE SERIES, Trevor Bauer, an NSA analyst, is searching for answers to the mystery surrounding his parents' disappearance when he crosses paths with Cassandra James, an ex-CIA operative with a big chip on her shoulder. By a stroke of luck, he becomes the key to her own mission while she becomes the center of his attention. Fighting an attraction as intense as their overwhelming instinct to keep each other at bay, together, they embark on a harrowing adventure that leads them across the ocean and into a world of intrigue and danger they had never foreseen. When faced with death defying choices, will they learn to trust their own instincts and each other to survive? Must Read by Book Addict - 5 Stars "Always searching for a new, grab you by the collar and drag you along for the ride series, I was not disappointed when I stumbled across Countermeasure...I had to walk away several times because the characters are so well written you become emotionally involved with them. They kept me guessing up until the end and then left us hanging in anticipation for the second book in this series." Countermeasure: A Smart, Sexy Start to the Series by Jamey Rodgers - 5 Stars "The first book in the highly-anticipated Countermeasure series does not disappoint...The dialogue is intelligent and witty, the action is authentic and well-paced, and the romance is hot...Countermeasure leaves the reader deeply satisfied, but also hungry for the next adventure." Countermeasure Rocks the 5-star category by Mrs. Condit Reads - 5 Stars "I laughed at the funny repartee among the characters. I cried at their losses. I cringed when they witnessed gruesome horrors. I cowered when they were chased by truly awful bad guys. And I was aroused when they made love. Mr. Almeida and Ms. Aubrey had me from the first paragraph. I could not put this book down, reading non-stop at home, on the treadmill at the gym, and staying up all hours to see how things turned out... The authors are very adept at description and dialog, bringing the reader into the story powerfully... I can hardly wait for FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE, book 2 in the COUNTERMEASURES series, promised at the end of book 1. Bring it on, Mr. Almeida and Ms. Aubrey Just... bring it." Micki's Bounce on Books - 5 bounces "What a better way to come back after the holidays than to review a really awesome book. A story of betrayal, survival and love with the luck of the Irish. This story is engaging and the characters are as approachable as your best friends.
About the Author
CHRIS ALMEIDA and CECILIA AUBREY Chris Almeida began writing children's stories at a very young age. While Cecilia Aubrey has dabbled in writing on and off over the years. It was in 2010, when Chris and Cecilia met and began role-playing online as a hobby, that writing placed itself front and center-this time, writing storylines for the role-playing group. The ideas and plots created for the game awoke their inner writers, and, a few months later, together they began writing romantic erotica. Together, they write suspense-driven erotic romance with sexy, technologically inclined men and woman, filled with intrigue and enough twists and turns to make a rollercoaster seem tame. Chris and Cecilia have several published short stories to their credit and their first novel, COUNTERMEASURE, was published in January 2011. They are currently working on the second and third books in the COUNTERMEASURE series. Through all the chaos and laughter, they still hold true to their roots, bringing their favorite role-play characters and stories to life.
