AudioBook Review: Ecstasy by the Sea: Countermeasure, Bytes of Life # 2 by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey

AudioBook Review:

I have read and reviewed this title in eBook format, after devouring the full length novels in the Countermeasure series.  As the book description explains, Trevor and Cassie are starting their married lives: Trevor has planned a lovely seaside getaway for their honeymoon.

The connections between the two is strengthened and deepened, the true enjoyment of one another is readily apparent. Almeida and Aubrey have delivered on their promise to make these shorts character-driven pieces, and I am actually rather jealous of those of you who are just coming to the series – you can make your own combinations of read / listen to the series and it’s Bytes in order, a real treat.

Skillfully narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds, he has become one of my favorite listens.  With a soft touch of Irish accent in his narration, more distinctly apparent for Trevor, and a softer tone, without great exaggeration in pitch to ‘sound’ overtly female for Cassie: the characters are easily distinguished; put forth with the proper inflection and emphasis that fully present the emotional subtext in the spoken dialogue.  Even the erotic scenes (and they are frequent) are voiced with breathless pauses, soft murmurs and give the listener a feel of voyeuristic delight.

As always, these are truly wonderful glimpses into the ‘between adventure’ times for the characters: and do provide interesting and informative insight, a perfect adjunct to the full length novels, with just enough substance to give a quick fix when you only have a little time, or want more about the characters in what will become a favorite series for those who encounter it.

About the Book:

This steamy spinoff to COUNTERMEASURE sees Trevor Bauer and Cassandra James having just tied the knot and moving across the pond to their new digs in Ireland to begin their life as a married couple. Their days have been swamped with planning the wedding, setting up their new business, and Trevor's NSA commitments—not to mention their continued investigation into his parents' disappearance. So when it’s pointed out to him that a key launching point for a new marriage has been overlooked, Trevor takes matters into his own hands.

Unbeknownst to Cassandra, Trevor plans the perfect honeymoon getaway down to the daintiest swatch of lace. His detail-obsessed wife won't know what hit her when he sweeps her away for what will result in nothing less than a weekend filled with pure ecstasy by the sea….

About Cecilia Aubrey

Cecilia Aubrey is an Air Force Brat born by chance in Oregon, but now living in the Bay Area, California. Although she has dabbled in writing on and off over the years, the majority of her career has been spent putting her marketing degree to good use.

It was in 2010, when she joined a role-playing group that the desire to write was reignited. A few months later, together with partner in crime, Chris Almeida, she moved on to write suspense driven erotic romance with sexy, technologically inclined men and woman.

Today, they have several published novels and short stories to their credit and are working on the third installment of their series. Through all the chaos and laughter, they still hold true to their roots bringing their favorite role-play characters and stories to life.

About Chris 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' 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 worm 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 C. Aubrey, began writing romantic erotica.

Now, still together, they have written a number of short stories and novels and are currently working on book two of their series. Through it all they have continued to enjoy role playing through their favorite characters.
