From the Back Cover

Suspicious and determined never to fall into the love trap, security specialist Cassandra James takes on a chase to recover files stolen right out from under her nose. In an effort to prove to her father--also her boss--that she is a capable woman, she follows the digital trail--a trail that leads her directly into the arms of Trevor Bauer, an NSA analyst who appears to have more secrets than she has scars...
Haunted by the mystery surrounding his parents' disappearance, Trevor Bauer's dreams for his own life have been put on hold. But being confronted by Cassandra James derails every one of his best laid plans to avoid a relationship until he can find the closure he desperately seeks. When he accepts her request for help in recovering the files she's hunting, they embark on an adventure that takes them across the ocean and into a world of intrigue and violence. As things between them begin to heat up, Trevor realizes that, if he is ever to win Cassandra's heart and the future he craves, he has no choice but to reveal all his secrets.

Move over, James Bond. The world of today is being saved by Geeks... Well, ok... not the whole world, just this one case. And yes, it is a GEEK that plays a major part in solving it. Despite facing his own demons with the disappearance of his parents, Trevor finds himself intrigued by that fierce beauty of Cassandra James after she found his digital footprint in the trail of missing clinical trial data which she was supposed to protect.

After a bumpy start, courtesy of Cassandra's overprotective friend, the two find themselves in France, trying to recover the data and solving each other's mystery.

The story itself keeps the reader drawn with its twists and turns that could give alpine roads a run for their money. But I also love the attention to detail just as much as the portrayal of the typical Irish charm by Trevor. That geek can save me any day. I am looking forward to the next installment due later this year.

This book was the perfect blend of romance, adventure, and mystery. I was hooked from the start. It was fast paced but not rushed and was very interesting from start to finish.

I thought the character development was outstanding. I love a strong, intelligent female character and Cassandra was all that and more. Trevor was her perfect complement. Each had their vulnerabilities and each was extremely believable and likeable. They worked well together and I enjoyed the way their relationship developed.

The plot was easy to follow. There were plenty of twists to keep the reader interested and curiosity peaked. I liked that the romance did not overpower the suspense/mystery but was a complement to it. The story was masterfully woven and kept me from wanting to put it down. I had to find out what happened next. The ending was satisfying and one of the best I have read for leading into the next book in the series.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in an intriguing storyline independent yet complementary of the overall theme of the series. I liked that it was written as collaboration. The authors did an awesome job. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series.

Countermeasure by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey
Review by Mary Beth

So I was told to read this series by a good friend of mine. When I say "told" it was not an exaggeration, she gave me an ultimatum to read it or I would be unfriended if I didn't. So since she had already suggested one fabulous writer and series to me I figured we had similar taste in books so I read it, and man was she spot on!

Cassandra James is a strong, beautiful and fearsome creature. She is former CIA who now works for her father's security firm. If that doesn't say badass I don't know what does, but that isn't all there is to her. She's had some rough times with her mother's passing, her father becoming more of a drill sergeant than a father after her death, and being shot in the line of duty. She has had to work for everything that she has and all for a slight sign of approval from her father. So while working on a case, things go a little haywire and lands her right at the doorstep of Trevor Bauer.

Trevor Bauer is a computer GEEK. Ok now that that is out of the way get the automatic pic that came into your head and throw it out the window. He is a sexy geek; handsome, extremely intelligent and man who just happens to work for the NSA. He loves life but is plagued with the ghost of his parent's disappearance. His chance meeting with Cassandra opens his eyes and makes him realize that he needs to know more about her. Thankfully a situation arises and he gets his opportunity to not only help her find what was stolen and prove she is worthy but to also see they fit each perfectly.

This book has so much going for it I stayed up ALL NIGHT to finish reading it.

Fun, Fun, Fun for all!!

This is the creation of a couple of really smart and talented authors. The beginning gives you the back story needed in order to get that seatbelt fastened for a thrill ride of suspense, technology and yes... romance.

Introducing Cassandra James, former CIA agent and Trevor Bauer NSA desk jockey and beloved GEEK. The story starts with a theft of proprietary belonging to a client of Cassie's employer and crumbs left by someone who was snooping around (Trevor). Their first meeting with some absolutely funny smart alecky comments from Trevor to the admission of their feelings for one another sprinkled with some action and frequent flyer miles will make you keep reading until the end of the novel.

Did I love it? Yes!!! I am waiting anxiously for the sequel .

This book is way over rated. The storyline itself is okay, but the constant writing about the two main characters desires for each other got really old really quickly. Their conflicted emotions towards each other are written in nearly every paragraph. The sex scenes were way too detailed and long. I found myself skimming over these parts just to move on with the story.
