brave move, he takes her back to his hometown to show her where he grew up and to revisit some of his fondest childhood memories but at the same time, it is the perfect excuse for Trevor to face some of the inner demons he has been struggling with since his parents disappeared. Can he finally deal with his issues and return to his parents home that has remained locked up all the time since their absence. Or will the ghosts of the past be too much for Trevor?
This is another great entry in a series. There is the usual intimacy and naughtiness but as well as all that, this is also a chance for readers to try and worm out a few clues to the overall mystery that runs through both sets of series. The story also gives readers a chance to gain an exclusive insight into the characters and to see a much more vulnerable side to Trevor than is ordinarily exhibited.
I like these stories generally as they read like a secret glimpse into the lives of the the two main characters beyond the larger storyline of the novels. I have said it before that reading these is like peeking at the characters of a movie or television series between scenes and seeing events that may not make it to the final cut. I like that the authors are also dropping subtle hints and teasing and tantalizing their fans, not just erotically but also with clues as to just why Trevor’s parents went missing. These stories then are almost like a reward to fans for being so dedicated and loyal. There is an argument that if the authors spent less time putting these out and more time writing the Countermeasure series then we might get the next
entry a bit quicker (hint hint) but these little shorts are often quite fun and I can imagine this writing duo chuckling away to themselves as they find new ways to tease and tempt their readers!
Overall, this is one of the better tales in the Bytes Of Life series and comes highly recommended from this reviewer! A great way to introduce yourself to both series if you have not encountered them before, this is just as enjoyable for established fans and is a very rewarding experience that leaves you wanting just that little bit more. Some readers have
mentioned that they have found it the most emotional of the series too so if you are a loyal fan, you might want to pack some tissues. Of course being an Alpha Male, it didn’t affect me in this way at all but it has left me even more desperate for the next full novel and more keen than ever to learn what exactly is going on.....
