Review: Countermeasure by Chris Almeida & Cecilia Aubrey

Countermeasure (Countermeasure, #1)Countermeasure by Chris Almeida & Cecilia Aubrey
Ann's rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was completely sucked in to the mystery and intrigue of the story. Cassandra (Cassie) is a strong, intelligent woman who is not looking for love and is looking for her father’s approval. She is ex-CIA agent and was injured on the job, which made her rethink her future. She knows there was a traitor at the CIA but that story is never followed. She is assigned a security job by her father for a new drug and while on the job, the formula is stolen. Cassandra does not give up and enlists her ex-partner Nathan to help her find the information. Nathan, through the story, is a distraction, both to Cassandra and Trevor and to the story. He acts like the jilted suitor and unless he turns up in following stories, seems unnecessary.

After Cassandra is thrown off the team her father gave her, is where the story really gets interesting and involved. The trail leads to NSA analyst Trevor Bauer, who has secrets of his own. They embark on a trip that leads to Italy, France and finally Monaco. Along the way, they both discover things about each other and themselves. It is a love story for all time. They also have to avoid the bad guys and figure out “who done it” and why.

My only complaints about the story are Nathan and also Trevor’s back story. It is alluded to many times and leaves you hanging and confused and seems out of place. It is just a small bump, though, on a marvellous, exciting and sexy tale. I would definitely like to read further stories, hopefully to clear up the Nathan issue and also to find out what happened to Trevor’s parents.

In the first novel of the COUNTERMEASURE SERIES, tenacious ex-CIA agent Cassandra James is in hot water. A cyber thief stole sensitive information from her father's top client - information she was supposed to keep secure - and now she could lose her job, even if she is the boss' daughter. The only person who can help her recover the stolen data is sexy NSA analyst Trevor Bauer - a computer mastermind who's broken through her personal security and might break her heart as well.

Trevor is on the hunt for answers to the mystery surrounding his parents' disappearance. Following a promising lead into the missing Bristol files, he accidentally gets on the radar of a woman too hot to handle...and a mercenary willing to do anything to keep both of them from recovering those files.

To track down the thief, Trevor and Cassandra must embark on a harrowing adventure that leads them across the ocean and into a world of intrigue, danger, and passion. But as they close in on their target, their relationship begins to boil, jeopardizing their mission as well as their very lives. Will they learn to trust their instincts - and each other - in order to survive?
