Josh and Aubrey become a couple after meeting at work. The job is on a mac-n-cheese food truck, and their boss, Seth, has offered both of them the chance of a lifetime at their age—to manage his new, second truck. As they begin to work together more, their feelings deepen. 
But Josh has a secret; one he feels he must tell Aubrey before their relationship gets more serious. He’s bisexual, and has ex’s of both sexes. One of those is Kristoff, Josh’s most long-standing relationship to date, who left Austin and Josh behind to answer the call of duty at his parents’ business. 
Now Kristoff is back and wants to reconnect with Josh. Seeing the only person he’s ever loved, just as he’s falling for Aubrey, completely throws Josh. Just when he thought he could finally forget the man and be happy with someone else; old feeling resurface. Aubrey’s confused, too, since she feels a strange pull to this man she should regard as competition for Josh’s heart. 
As the three navigate a possible ménage situation, they each have doubts about its viability. But in the end, will they be left with nothing, or will the three get a taste and be hooked?

 About the Books

CC_Underworld_OffTheGrid_Final_Revised12082014

Off the Grid, Underground 1

The seemingly impossible has happened. The unthinkable. Those I trusted most have betrayed me. I’m a hockey player, and gave control of my finances to my parents so I could concentrate on my game. Big mistake. They stole from me, bankrupted me, in fact. And then someone come looking for money I don’t have and I made a terrible mistake; one that will haunt me forever.

But now someone has found me and offered a new start. I would no longer be a hockey player, I wouldn’t even be an actual person, totally off the grid. I’d be a shadow, fighting crime for an organization that’s underground, literally. Do I want that life?

If I go back, what kind of life would I have? Probably one in prison orange. The choice to join Underground is painful, but necessary. As my hockey coach always said, though, pain is weakness leaving the body. I will not be powerless ever again.

Creating Slapshot, Underground 2

I’ve left my old life behind and officially joined Underground. It appears no one knows where I am or even if I’m still alive. I don’t know how I feel about that. My friends thinking I’m dead leaves a hole in my heart, but I’ll drive myself crazy if I obsess about it. So rather than allowing myself to wallow in self-pity or anger about what’s happened, I’m throwing all my energy into training. You would think that whole “elite athlete” thing would make everything easier, but all these new techniques I need to master—hand-to-hand combat, weapons training, surveillance procedures—are kicking my ass.

For my whole life, I’ve only had one identity. Ethan, hockey player. Now that sense of self is gone forever, slowly being replaced by my new identity, Slapshot. Surreal doesn’t even begin to describe this transformation. But the more I find out about the world around me, the problems I ignored for the most part as I played a game for an obscene amount of money, the more I want to make a difference. This is not a game. It’s real life, and I have the chance to be a hero. It’s going to take everything I have—or have left, to do it.

Initiation by Fire, Underground 3

I have my first assignment–helping track down a man targeting Cuban bodegas and then using an automatic rifle to massacre all those inside after his wife is killed by a Cuban during a mugging. Underground is tasked with figuring out who this dangerous man is and stopping him before he goes on another rampage. Though I only play a small role in this first mission, it’s satisfying to know I helped find justice for all the innocent people the man has murdered.

Despite that, I still find myself thinking about what I left behind, as I learn more about what my parents did with my money, and my former hockey team struggles to deal with my apparent death. Guilt weighs me down, and the rest of the team does their best to keep me focused on this new life. Can they do that, or will I snap under the pressure?

 

Dream Cast

Ethan (Slapshot, our hero) – Stephen Amell. If he’s busy, I’ll accept Henry Cavill as a replacement. 😉

Maline (female manager) – Jamie Lee Curtis

Andre (male manager) – Dmitriy Nagiev (famous Russian bad-ass actor)

Helen (female operative) – Amy Brenneman

Angie (female operative) – Nia Long

Danny (male IT guy) – Josh Hutcherson

Glenn (male operative) – Zachary Quinto

 

Book Review

Reading the first three books in the series, Underground by Cassandra Carr has been a complete thrill. I could sit with all ten books and binge read from beginning to end with no problem. Please, just keep the coffee maker going and feed me an occasional chocolate bar and I won’t even stop to sleep!

Cassandra Carr has written a fantastic beginning to this series with Off the Grid, Creating SlapShot and Initiation by Fire. My only complaint…I didn’t get enough!

It didn’t take me any time at all to immerse myself in Ethan’s life and challenges. (And his growing, no pun intended, attraction to Ciana)

I absolutely love the concept of Underground. A secret black-ops group, manned by those that other covert groups might find objectionable. They all seem to have their secrets and I’m hoping they will be revealed as the serial continues.

And Ms. Carr’s choice of dream cast? What a delectable, I can totally visualize them, cast of characters. A combination of strength and truth in each and every one.

Ms. Carr has written very successful missions for this black-ops group thus far and I’m betting you’ll agree once you sit down and catch up on Underground.

I highly recommend the Underground serials Off the Grid, Creating SlapShot and Initiation by Fire. And I give them fifteen (that’s five for each episode) steaming, hot cups of Room With Books coffee.
