For those of you that have read Countermeasure by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey you have to read this book. I can not tell you how many books that I've finished and just wished I had a little more of what happens next. Ecstasy by the Sea is that book. The Bytes of Life series could be read independently of the Countermeasure series, but I would advise reading them as companions.

In Ecstasy by the Sea we get a peek at Trevor and Cassandra's wedding and their move to Ir

After reading Ecstasy by the Sea, I looked up and said a silent ‘thank you’.

Ecstasy by the Sea takes place after the wedding ceremony of Trevor and Cassandra. As they move across the pond to Ireland, one tiny detail was forgotten, the honeymoon.

Trevor, trying to be the most romantic husband ever, booked a room as a lovely hotel on the shores of Ireland. Trying to hide the surprise from Cassandra , he plans and packs and kidnaps her while on the way home from a trip to the store.

Not as exciting

Now Countermeasures was a force to be reckon with. The excerpt from Uncharted kept you in the zone wanting more adventures, espionage, and romance. But this was just plain sexy reading. Nothing particularly wrong with that but a big let down from the first two.

I received an eBook from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

This is the first of 3 ‘shorts’ that serve as filler between the main stories of Countermeasure and To Russia With Love. The authors suggest that you read all the books and shorts in order, and this short is most certainly loaded with erotic content and situations. As a series – this is a winner – and these shorts are a nice interlude while waiti

5 Stars

If you’ve ever been disappointed when you hit the last page of a book because you are so in love with the characters that you just want more, this book is the answer. We get more Trevor. We get more Cassandra. We get more humor, and we get more sizzling hot sex.

In this short sexy read we get to experience Trevor and Cassandra’s honeymoon. This couple met and fell in love in book one. It was action packed and intense. They never got a chance to hav

Full Review: http://thetbrpile.weebly.com/1/post/2...

This was okay but a bit slower pace than Cuffed, which is why it loses a star. There was much more build-up and less actual action and though still enjoyable, there was a greater emphasis on the love shared by the pair than there was on the more physical side of their relationship. When things do start to happen, the sexual scenes are, as usual, highly descriptive, but, unlike with Cuffed, this did not feel as though it was the main focus of t

I always think that reviewing short stories is kinda silly. I either like them or I don't. Not much to say. Well I'll try a little harder this time because I really liked this one. If you have not read Countermeasure, I suggest you stop reading this review and get snappy on that book. #1, this book will obviously spoil some plot in Countermeasure. And #2, ummmmm I don't have a number 2... just don't read this review until you check that out.

It's nice to have a short story based solely on the r

The thing I love most about the bytes of life is that we get to follow characters I wasn’t ready to let go of from Countermeasure. In this short story we watch Trevor act like, well, a normal guy figuring out how to make his new wife Cassandra happy and that includes a honeymoon surprise. Chris and Cecilia know how to write hot and sexy stories. The interactions between Trevor and Cassie are very respectful and sweet yet so steamy and passionate. There is no crude language (except Cassie has a w ...more

When Countermeasure ended the newly married couple was heading to Dublin to start their new life. This short picks up right after Countermeasure ends. The Bauer's make it Dublin and embark on life as newlyweds. The only problem? Neither one of them thought about a honeymoon! Usually not a planner, Trevor sets out to surprise his wife with a getaway weekend on the coast.
Readers are in for a treat for sure! This is a great short that gives us readers a glance into what happens during the day to da

This is a short story based on the book characters from Countermeasures. What a great concept these authors have come up with. If you have ever been disappointed when you have read the last page of a book because you loved the characters and just want more, this short story following the main book Countermeasures is the answer. We get more of Trevor and Cassandra. More of their story and more sizzzzling hot sex. Overall I would rate the story a 4 and assign a sexy rating of 5 (based on La Deeda ...more

Following Trevor and Cassandra on their honeymoon was a joy to read. It was great to watch Trevor get away with planning something and be able to pull off the surprise. The passionate relationship between them only grew stronger and seeing a relaxed side of them, away from the rest of the world was amazing. I have read many romances and the intimate scenes between these two left me desiring more. Their love and lust for one another was truly conveyed. Chris and Cecilia once again brought me into ...more

In this short sexy tale we are treated to some heart pounding, bed shaking, hotter than hell honeymoon action.
I am completely in love with Trevor and Cassandra. They have a relationship that just radiates love and passion on every page. I can’t wait to dig into the next short adventure and continue my obsession with Mr. and Mrs. Bauer. If you read book 1, Countermeasure, this is an absolute must read. Their honeymoon adventure will leave you more than satisfied.

I am not going to reiterate what other people have written....you want the plot, read the blurb...I just know that with each book Chris and Ceci write, I get a little more invested in Trev and Cassie...This book was just what was needed between Countermeasures and Cuffed....Really, I loved that this was "normal"....it perfectly showed how the "after they say I do" moves on....Gives more insight into Mr. Geeky Perfection, aka Trevor, and the other half of his soul, aka Cassandra, begin their new ...more

This is a Short Story that takes a slice of Trevor and Cassandra's life and magnifies it.

This Short story picks up very soon after Countermeasure ends. To say any more than that might give away too much for anyone who hasn't already read the first novel.

I really enjoyed this byte of life. If you have read Countermeasure then you'll definitely want to read this.

Though set chronologically before Cuffed At Midnight, Ecstasy By The Sea is the second in the Bytes Of Life series of short stories to be released featuring your favourite characters from the full length Countermeasure novels that I have recently reviewed for the TBR Pile Blog here: http://thetbrpile.weebly.com/1/catego...

Once again, this is another naughty slice of spiciness that is definitely not for anyone not interested in reading explicit sexual scenes and is a great accompaniment to the la

Oh, Trevor. You almost messed this up from the get go. Not that Cassandra would have loved you any less, but this was a chance to give her a memory that will last a lifetime. Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey have written a short story that fills in a little gap in the Countermeasure story that could have been skipped but aren’t we lucky it wasn’t?

Not bad by any means... but I prefer the 'thrill' of the full length novels.
