Blindsided by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey definitely lives up to its name. I was completely surprised by this book. It isnt like any of the other Bytes of Life stories, and the time frame in which it is set is the same time as the end of To Russia With Love, so you get to see the ending of that book from a different point of view. It is just so very cool the way Chris and Cecilia wrote this one.

Blindsided shows us Nathan and Nikols last encounter from To Russia With Love. Holy smokes was it

4.5 STARS

I absolutely love the writing style of Chris and Cecilia. The flow is natural and the attention to detail is impeccable. Each scene is described beautifully, with the perfect amount of balance. If you havent started this series yet, I cannot stress enough how much you are missing out. They really deliver the full package. You get steamy sex, heart stopping suspense, enticing emotion, and nonstop action. Countermeasure is hands down one of my favorite series.

What can I say that readers do not already know. Leave it to Chris and Cecilia to create an illusion in one book and show us the depths of ones mind in actions in another. Blindsided will give you an inside look on Nathan as a man not the "ass" we all saw him as. His advice and life struggles will be revealed from behind the doors of the safe house in Russia with Nikol. The title in it self will describe that as true fans of the Countermeasure series that "we" will be "Blindsided" by what really ...more

This is the fifth installment in the Bytes of Life portion of the Countermeasure Series. This short story is told from the points-of-view of Nathan Nelson and Nikol Petrovna. This is their story that took place in the morning, while everyone was in Russia. Even though the story only covers a few short hours of time, it dives deeper into the Nathans past and Nikols future.

Written with the same excellent style, that fans have thoroughly enjoyed, Blindsided takes a slight detour away from the

In a short that covers only a few hours in the midst of a harrowing escape from St. Petersburg, this story brings some insight into one of the more controversial, and often least sympathetic of the recurring characters: Nathan Nelson, Cassies ex-partner in the CIA. It is often said that like recognizes like, and that recognition of another deeply wounded soul provides the basis for a very emotionally raw conversation between Nathan and Nikol, that is after an almost sexual liaison, several ...more

This is set immediately after To Russia With Love and this Byte is Nathan's. I had always thought that Nathan was not the horrid monster Trev made him out to be. We get a touch of what has made Nathan who he is. We see heartbreak, a broken childhood, a need to love someone and be loved. Nathan is a jerk, yeah, but he is oh so much more....We get to witness the beginnings of, if not a friendship, at least some grudging respect between Trev and Nathan. And a perfect set up for the next novel...As ...more

In this short story we know a little more Nathan Nelson, the CIA agent, the old friend of Cassandra, and monitor a scene that occurred in To Russia with Love for what happened in Nate's room.

I'm already more anxious for 'Alternate Connection' and what will happen with Nathan.
