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.
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.
