Would you believe...

When I read a book, I can either say ‘I liked it’ or ‘it was alright’ or ‘I didn’t care for it’. To Russia with Love doesn’t fit into one of those categories. TRWL was simply a brilliant masterpiece!
To Russia with Love takes you down a road of romance, suspense, intrigue, and toe curling ass kickings.

To Russia With Love is the second book of the Countermeasure series. I love this series and loved Countermeasure (book #1). I honestly didn't think it was possible, but I loved To Russia With Love even more. I could not get enough of the amazing characters that make up the cast of this book. Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey do things a little differently and I am a huge fan of their methods. First they offer the Bytes of Life companions that give you just a lit

What an intense and thrilling ride! If you have read Countermeasure by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey, well get ready for more in To Russia With Love. More action. More thrills (and chills). More emotion. More romance. More twists and turns. More story. When I finished with To Russia With Love I was exhausted, but in a good way. I can't even count the number of times tears ran down my cheeks or the number of times it felt like my heart was beating so rapidly I thought it would come right out o ...more

The digital trail leads to Russia…

This is the second book in the Countermeasure series that continues a storyline from the first book, the search for answers regarding the disappearance of Trevor Bauer’s parents. This is a very intriguing mystery for we’ve been led to believe that there’s more to their vanishing act than an accident at sea.

Trevor and Cassandra have been married for months, happily settled in Ireland, partners in their own data retrieval company. The honeymoon is definitely not o

First, I would like to say that it took me way to long to write this review.

This is the sequel to Countermeasure...A delicious follow up and a juicier read. We are thrusted back into Trevor and Cassandra's life along with an introduction of some other POVs.

They find themselves in Russia following a lead that places Trevor in a den of a Russian Mafia lord with no escape. We are also introduced to a extended exploration of feelings between T's family friend Stephan (YUMMY!!) and Cassie's spunkst

I am still not exactly sure who is this series is aimed at (is it marketed towards those who love Erotic Romance but yearn desperately for more plot or for readers of espionage, spy-type thrillers who crave much more explicit sexual content with their latest James Bond fix?). Tthat doesn’t really matter because what the authors set out to achieve here hits all the right buttons and does it well! This series is both thrilling and highly engagin

This is a series that pulls you in with its intense and intriguing plot. I fell in love with the hero and heroine in the first book and was so happy to see their relationship a year later. There was quite a bit more sexy time in this book compared to the first one. Normally this would thrill me but I have to say that I was so drawn into the other elements of the story that I often found myself eager to get through those parts so I could find out what would happen next.

I liked it, but the fact that the 2 main characters just kept jumping into bed whenever the looked at each other or said something silly and it turned out to be an all out sex a thon was a bit tedious. The story between Stephan and Jessica was actually more interesting on how they built up their relationship. Did I like the book, yes, but it wasn't as good as the first one. I will be reading the next one once it comes out so I can just follow the story between Trevor/Cass/Stephan/

5 Stars

To Russia With Love is book 2 in the Countermeasure Series. I absolutely adored Trevor and Cassandra in book one and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one to see how their story continued. I was not disappointed! From page one you jump head first right back into their fast paced, very unpredictable lives. This couple continues to warm my heart and keeps me wanting more.

You get a very clear idea of the plot line of this story with the synopsis.

To Russia With Love is exactly what I expected it to be in the sense that I knew it would blow me away. But, I also know Cecilia and Chris are so good at giving us unexpected things that I just HAD to be surprised in one way or another. These surprises came in differents forms. Some came from the characters and their hidden secrets, others from discovering some character traits, others simply by discovering new characters, others by some events ...

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

wow....where to start....I adore Cassie and Trevor! Okay, fictional friends aside....Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey are, in my opinion, the best writing duo out there- Yeah, I know....I am shooting myself in the foot here, because I like Mercedes Lackey and whomever she happens to be co writing with at any given moment. Chris and Cecilia's writing is just pure magic. Each and every scene flows so smoothly, waxing and waning effortlessly to the reader.

Review by Mary Beth

This is the second book in the Countermeasure series and trust me when I say it brings everything you expect and then some. This book was probably one of my favorites so far by Chris and Ceci. I loved the fact that we get a continuation of the adventure that is Cassandra and Trevor but we also get the opportunity to get to know some of the secondary characters like Jessica and Stephan.

Review based on ARC version:

Geek to the rescue for the second time. *arches eye brow* What? If James Bond had the wits, charm and geekiness of Trevor Bauer, he would not be able to do his job because of the influx of Bond Girls. Anyway... where were we?

Right, TRWL... As the hunt for Trevor's parents continues, our heroes have settled into married life in Ireland. In order to get his hands onto notes from his father, Trevor agrees to help with the retrieval of a software program that has the pot

I enjoyed Countermeasure so much that I jumped right into this book, the next in the series.

The story picks up about a year after the first book ended. Trevor and Cassandra find themselves in deep doo-doo yet again. Wanting to protect their 'family' and not knowing who to trust outside of their inner circle, they trust no one. Was this a mistake? You'll have to find out.

The thing I love about this series is how well developed the characters are. I know I said this in my review of Countermeasure, but the characters seem so real. I feel like these are people that I could become friends with and sit down to have a drink or two with. Even the secondary characters are well developed, not just slapped on the page to fill up space.
The women in this series are also amazing, strong characters. None of them are waiting for a man to come riding up on a white horse to save

This review is true, is my real feeling about the book.


I had love the first book, but I think the authors have excelled in TRWL because the plot and the way they blended the stories of the main characters (Trevor and Cassandra) and the other secondary characters was incredible, making us wonder all times about Jessica and Stephan, learn more about George and Nathan... and about Dmitriy and Tatiana, and still know more about Conor and Maeve.

Intense! This series has it all...action/adventure, romance, suspense, and hot, steamy sex! The characters are so so well developed you feel like you know them in real life. It's hard to find books like that.

Working on a lead in hopes of finding out what happened to Trevor's parents they end up in Russia and dealing with the wrong people...the Russian Mafia! EEEK!

I love the fact that these books are well researched and could totally happen in real life..actually it did! They are not far fetched
I can’t say enough about this intense, exhilarating, sexy series. It has a very unique plot line that is skillfully thought out. You are continuously wondering who you can and cannot trust. Oh, and we can’t forget the scattering of humor. Any time you have Trevor and Cassandra together, It’s guaranteed you will get some laughs. I am so eager to see what happens next. If you are a fan of suspense with a blend of love, smoking hot sex, and consuming emotion you won’t want to miss out on these book ...more

“If you think you can just scare the crap out of me and walk home like nothing happened you are very wrong, mister." Cassie's voice, although steady, was now seething with anger. "What the hell happened out there, Trevor!?"

Trevor checked his surroundings, crawled closer to the gate, and popped his head around the corner of the wall to check the house. Again, loud growls echoed in his ears and the gate shook under weight of a body butting up against it. The dogs were right in his face doing what they were trained to do—guard the property.

"Dogs, Cassie...big dogs happened.”
