Editorial Reviews

The Oracle Reviews - Maria Mercedes
I loved this simple continuation of Countermeasures. The honeymoon that every reader wants to see but never gets a chance too. Well Chris and Cecilia give us that treat. I love the way these two characters look at each other you can feel the emotion pouring off the pages. Their love is extremely 3-D, you almost forget they are characters in a book, and that is exactly the way it should be. Their passion ignites with a spectacular view of the Irish Sea. Honeymoon +Trevor +Cassie = Warning label:

Meet the Author

CHRIS ALMEIDA (C. ALMEIDA)
Chris Almeida (also known as C. Almeida) began writing children’s stories at a very young age. Born in Brazil but currently living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Chris’s life took a totally different course when technology came into play, and the following 17 years were spent delving deep into the world of programming and web design.
It was in 2010, when Chris began role-playing online as a hobby, that writing wormed its way back into the picture—this time, writing storylines for the role-playing group.
The ideas and plots created for the game awoke the inner writer, and, a few months later, together with partner-in-crime Cecilia Aubrey, Chris began writing romantic erotica.
Now, still together, they have written a number of short stories and novels and are currently working on book two and three of their series, as well as several short stories as part of the spin-off series. Through it all they have continued to enjoy role-playing through their favorite characters.
CECILIA AUBREY (C. AUBREY)
Cecilia Aubrey (also known as C. Aubrey) has dabbled in writing on and off over the years. But it was in 2010, when she was offered a life-changing opportunity within a role-playing group, that writing placed itself front and center.
The development of story ideas, research, writing, and participation in bringing those stories to life spurred a desire to take writing to a higher level. A few months later, Cecilia and her partner in crime, Chris Almeida, began writing romantic erotica.
Together, they write suspense-driven erotic romance with sexy, technologically inclined men and women, filled with intrigue and enough twists and turns to make a rollercoaster seem tame.
They 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.
Always gluttons for punishment, they have several projects in queue, screaming and waiting for their turn, including a spin-off series of shorts tied to their novels. Through all the chaos and laughter, they still hold true to their roots, bringing their favorite role-play characters and stories to life.

    The thing I love most about the bytes of life is that we get to

    The thing I love most about the bytes of life is that we get to follow characters I wasn’t ready to let go of from Countermeasure. In this short story we watch Trevor act like, well, a normal guy figuring out how to make his new wife Cassandra happy and that includes a honeymoon surprise. Chris and Cecilia know how to write hot and sexy stories. The interactions between Trevor and Cassie are very respectful and sweet yet so steamy and passionate. There is no crude language (except Cassie has a way of making Trevor say the f-word when she has pushed him to his limits in a good way) or anything that makes you feel awkward. It is all very romantic and typical in that can’t-keep-your-hands-off-one-another stage of marriage. I highly recommend Ecstasy by the Sea to anyone that has read Countermeasure and wants to see what things are like with Trevor and Cassandra after their horrific life or death experience

    I received an eBook from the author for purpose of honest review

    I received an eBook from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    This is the first of 3 ‘shorts’ that serve as filler between the main stories of Countermeasure and To Russia With Love. The authors suggest that you read all the books and shorts in order, and this short is most certainly loaded with erotic content and situations. As a series – this is a winner – and these shorts are a nice interlude while waiting for the 3rd novel to arrive.

    This short picks up just after the wedding of Trevor and Cassandra, as they are flying to their new home in Dublin, spending hours on a plane from California. Trevor had realized, belatedly, that he had not planned a honeymoon with all of the other arrangements being made. So, he hatches a plan to steal Cassandra away from their new home in Dublin to the beautiful Waterside House Hotel.

    Trevor manages to keep the secret – packing quickly when Cassie went out to explore the neighbourhood into which she has just moved. Trevor then manages to spirit her off to the hotel for a weekend of pleasure and enjoyment. Full of the excitement and eroticism of most honeymoons, they have eyes only for each other, and thoughts that are constantly straying to the large, comfortable bed in the private room with a view.

    What increases the erotic content in these stories is not the action (although it is detailed lavishly and creates imagery that gives the feel of being there) but the character’s interplay with one another. The obvious caring and emotion that resides in every action and the delight in pleasuring one another throughout the story is evident. A true winner and a great interlude for that ‘bedtime’ read.

    Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey have written an look into the everyday life of our Countermeasure series super couple, Trevor and Cassandra Bauer. It's a great opportunity for fans to see Trevor and Cassie when they aren't embroiled in intrigue.

    For this first segment in Bytes of Life we get a look at Trevor and Cassie on their honeymoon. While Trevor may have planned this at the absolute last minute, the trip is exactly Cassie and Trevor: spontaneous, romantic and HOT!

    If you're a Countermeasure fan and want a quickie look into what Trevor would do to make sure his beautiful wife has a honeymoon worthy of her, definitely pick this one up. So worth it.
