Interview with the Authors
Q - So what makes the Countermeasure Series special?
A - Countermeasure pulls in the best of Erotic Romance, Adventure and Suspense into one single series. We also aim to write about people, not characters. They are true to life and flawed, also someone you feel you can connect to and invite for a coffee just to shoot the breeze. The series has two separate, yet connected sets of books. The novels develop the bulk of the mystery and adventure in the plot. The short stories and novellas develop the characters and bare the characters' souls to you. All of their dreams, disillusions, fears are exposed in the short stories. The short stories and Novellas are also what we call Romantica. They are stories portraying a day in the life of the characters after their "I do". A mix between Romance and Erotica where you are the fly on the wall during the married couples' intimate moments. If you enjoy high heat, spicy reads involving married couples, you got to the right series.

Meet the Author
CHRIS ALMEIDA & CECILIA AUBREY
Writing had touched Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey’s lives in different ways throughout the years, but never took flight until 2010, when Chris and Cecilia met and began roleplaying online as a hobby. It was through playing fictional characters in a sort of improv written theater that writing took a central position in their lives. The transition from roleplaying to novel writing was smooth, and they attribute the ease of writing realistic characters to their ability to live the scenes through roleplay.
Chris and Cecilia have several short stories and novels published under their own label, Éire Publishing, and are vocal supporters of independent publishing. They’re currently working on the next novel in one of their series. Through all the chaos and laughter, they still hold true to their roots, bringing their favorite characters and stories to life.

I liked this book and ohe one before it. I will buy the third one too when it is out. Although, there is way wayt too jmuch explicit sex, and the Authors have a great imagination. The sex does nothinbg for the story, which is fast moving and interesting. Of course this is just my opinion, and everyone else is entitled tho their;s too.
I found this book very well written, with constant action and interaction of characters, and a great story line. I liked the twists and turns as well as the side line relationships. As an avid reader of all genres of books, I tend to be critical of a storyline, grammar, realistic characters, etc. With that, I highly recommend this book and give it 5 stars.
I love when a series goes from HOT to SCORCHING. That is exactly what authors Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey have done with geeky, computer nerd Trevor Bauer and his ex-CIA wife Cassie. Trevor and Cassie continue to investigate the disappearance of Trevor's parents. When Trevor's friend George comes across a conversation that mention's software Trevor's father was working on, he thinks they have the break they need. But that information leads them to direct involvement with the Russian mob and Trevor being ensconced within the walls of a mob compound and Cassie left wonder if she'll ever see Trevor again. I thought Cassie and Trevor were hot in Countermeasure, but their heat index jumps about a 1000 degrees with this one. They are truly each other's reason for living...their passion. Those feelings jump off the page at you. They still can be snarky with each other, joke around and question what the other is doing, but they always know the other is there to cover their back. When this latest assignment in Russia results in them being separated, you could feel how lost and desperate they felt not being with each other. But they both knew that they needed to do whatever was necessary to find out what happened to Trevor's parents. But Cassie and Trevor weren't the only couple burning up the pages. Cassie's best friend, Jessica, joins Trevor and Cassie's company. Once on Irish soil, it becomes Jess' mission to find Stephan Connelan (Trevor's "uncle") and discover if what they felt for each other at Trevor & Cassie's wedding was real or not. Stephen fights the relationship the whole way, sighting his age and inability to commit to a relationship as reasons why Jess should stay away. But Jess persists and Stephan caves, secretly knowing he wants Jess more than anything. Their relationship almost falls apart, due to Stephan's own pigheadedness, but luckily a chance run in with his ex finally sets him on the right path. Good thing, because chemistry like they have shouldn't be walked away from. This is a series I'm glad I was introduced to because I can't put the latest down once I start it. The characters and storyline drawn you in and don't let go, leaving a sense of loss when you get to that last page. Definitely one I recommend.
