Who would have thought that Cassandra James... apologies, Cassandra Bauer has a naughty streak? But with a little, unintended help from her best friend Jessica (or not that unintended) and her service handcuffs, the result is a birthday present whereby the Geekster has no idea just what hit him, or cuffed in this situation.

This delightful short story is a quick read that will leave you with a smile. Highly recommended!

Holy Hot birthday presents! Cuffed at Midnight is a companion novella to the Countermeasure series by the fabulous writing duo of Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. For anyone that has ever read a book and just wondered what happens next these companion novellas are the perfect solution. I am loving the Bytes of Life companion books.

This book is narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds. I thoroughly enjoy Tim's narration of Trevor. He does an equally good job with Cassie. And kudos to him for reading the

Cuffed at Midnight, the short following Countermeasure was a very enjoyable read. Seeing a happy, relaxed side of Trevor and Cassandra as they moved forward and started their new life together in Dublin was great. I was not expecting the "present" that Cassandra gave Trevor for his birthday and her execution of her gift was amazing! ...more
AudioBook Review
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 encoun

Full review:

If you thought Countermeasures was graphic, this little short will leave you gasping as it isn’t long before we get very firmly (excuse the pun) into the action! If you are at all prudish then this DEFINITELY isn’t for you as it details sexual acts very graphically between two very consenting adults. To say it made me break into a bit of a sweat is an understatement! But though this certainly ISN’T my usual type of read, I did find it a lot of

4.5 stars

With Cuffed at Midnight we get a quick short glance at how things are moving along with Trevor and Cassandra. Trevor’s birthday is approaching and she is at a loss trying to come up with the perfect gift for a geek who has everything (her words, not mine). She wants it to be special and meaningful where it is his first birthday together. She finally settles on the one gift she knows he will enjoy and love….her.

This short story comes complete wit

Can I just say that Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey know how to title their books? Well, in Cuffed at Midnight we watch new wife Cassandra try to figure out what to get her geek of a husband, Trevor, for his birthday. What do you get someone like him? He pretty much has everything he wants. She comes up with something hot. Want to know what it is? Well...I'm not going to tell you...because you will LOVE it. The bytes of life that Chris and Cecilia put out in between their full length novels are ...more
This short story comes complete with handcuffs, edible body oil, and a lot of tangled body parts. Trevor becomes more aware that he fully belongs to Cassandra. He realizes that she is the one that completes him and the one person that he can trust unconditionally.
I am really loving these snippets into this couples lives. The sex is scorching hot, the passion is genuine and real, and it’s all tied up with a bow of true encompassing love.

Cassandra has a BIG problem. Trevor's birthday is coming up and she has no clue what to get the Geek who has everything. Inspiration strikes when she remembers a set of handcuffs in her closet and she surprises Trevor with a gift he isn't likely to forget anytime soon.
This is a great second addition to the Bytes of Life series that give the readers a slice of life in the Countermeasure series. Everything that you love about Countermeasure and To Russia with Love is in this book. And it's guaran

Cassie needs a birthday present for Trevor and comes up with the idea of handcuffs and oils that her friend had sent them. She has her way with him. It's been done before. Nothing new in the presentation of the story. ...more
