Genre: Erotic Romance
Length: short story
Trevor is ex-N.S.A and still obsessed with finding out what happened to his parents several years ago when they were “lost at sea”. Cassandra is ex-C.I.A and fell for Trevor whilst working on a case for her father who owns a private security firm. Recently married, the pair are just starting a new life together in Dublin from where they intend to work as Freelancers. In this little mini short, Trevor realizes he has failed to organize any kind of honeymoon and so turns to his Uncle Stephen for ideas. After coming up with an ingenious plan to get the pair of them away, Trevor must then try and hoodwink Cassandra without her guessing what is going on so that he can take her away and have his wicked way with her......
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 the story. Instead, this short story was all about reaffirming Trevor and Cassandra’s love for each
other and strengthening the bond shared by them both. In that sense, it was more Romance than Erotica and, whilst still good, it just wasn’t quite up to the same raunchy standard as Cuffed.
I am still enjoying this series and love the way these short stories read as a kind of naughty interlude between the main adventures of the Countermeasures storyline. Certainly by now, you really feel as though you know these two characters inside and out and these shorts are both voyeuristic in nature and wonderfully illicit in the way they give you a cheeky glimpse behind the scenes as it were; treating you to an almost forbidden glance into the private lives of the two main characters! One thing in particular is for certain, this reviewer is absolutely looking forward to whatever comes next....
