Length: short story
Cassandra Bauer is looking for fresh ideas to spice up her marriage to the love of her life, but Trevor is suffering from a crisis of. Thankfully, all that is needed to get things back on track is
a steamy sexual encounter and a little heart-to-heart!
This is the best of the Bytes of Life shorts so far and seems more heavily influenced by the Countermeasures novels than any of the previous installments, which to me read more like separate stories in their own right. This latest offering reads much more like a forgotten chapter or deleted scene from one of their novels and works well to bridge the gap between the first two novels! With every successive story that is released, the two authors seem to be finding a better and better balance. With this in mind, I have high hopes for the next Countermeasures novel due out early next year.
Once again, if you are at all prudish then this short story is not for you as it describes intimate sexual practices in explicit detail, much as fans have come to expect. There is a bit more to the
plot this time around. I am hoping that the next Bytes Of Life short builds on this principle and offers more revelations and teasers for the upcoming third installment of Countermeasures because if it does, it will only make me love this series more!
