Stars: Overall 5 Narration 5 Story 5
I adore these vignettes that focus on the quiet moments of life for Cassie and Trevor, and Cuffed at Midnight is one that starts with a simple moment of panic in their lives together: Trevor’s birthday and just what to give him for a present.
Almeida and Aubrey have created the couple that you want to know, or want to be: their humor, their obvious affection for one another, and one of the most interesting gifting scenes that I have ever encountered. But being awakened, handcuffed to the bed just after midnight is the least of Trevor’s concerns, and fills fantasies that he never knew he had.
Narration is again provided by Tim Gerard Reynolds, and the pairing of his voice and the author’s text is perfectly harmonious. Reynolds has a voice that carries a whisper of Ireland in his speech that is more pronounced in Trevor’s speech, and reined back for Cassie’s voicing. Without great changes to tone or pitch, he manages to convey each character with a distinct patois and pacing that suits character and words.
Again this is another winner for fans of the Countermeasure series, these little bytes give both insight and enjoyment as we see more of the characters in their ‘off hours’. The affection that Cassie and Trevor share for one another is viscerally impacting, even more arresting and intriguing than the sex, as their emotional attachment and need for one another is displayed with raw imagery for the reader.
I was provided an audiobook copy from the authors for purpose of honest review for the Heard Word at I am, Indeed. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
