As an agent with the Paranormal Security and Intelligence, she's seen and done it all. Intelligence is her specialty, assassination is her hobby. The only problem is that the things she spie ...more

First I must say that I loved the first book, Luke and Prene were amazing, I loved their chemistry and how they were with each other. Unfortunately I hated the second book, I honestly couldn't stand Missy and felt bad for Roi. I felt their relationship was more toxic than loving. Missy annoyed me so much I found myself wanting to just skip ahead to the next book, she was hot and cold through out the whole book. One minute she's all "I can't stand you, you are an a$$ and the next they are kissing ...more

Better than the first book. The story was more fleshed out and the characters are better developed. But then there is an unnecessary amount of "miscommunication." For Mates who are supposed to be able to read each others minds Roi and Missy sure do have a lot of unnecessary arguments. It was just so frustrating to read the scene where Melissa is essentially in heat and grinding on him but Roi stops to have what felt like a 20 minute conversation with Green about genetics. It was terrible and ins ...more

This book, is more a 3.5 star book. Its a good book, just not at the level that other books are at.

This second book is better than the first one, the characters are good, have strong suits, and Roi just can't be more lovable in his assholenes!!! The lack of communication between the main characters some time its a bit too much, specially when actions speak louder than words. But then again, it's a book!

I like the way that this book complements the first one, its just different sides of the sto

I loath nicknames...especially for grown people! If I had to read one more Missy-bean or Missy-doll! I could have just thrown up. All the testosterone poured in this series and we have to endure the "little woman", no matter how lethal she is, to be belittled with pet names. Unbelievable and unacceptable! The story itself was lacking and at times hard to follow for me. And can you say lack of personal space when ALL of Melissa's dirty laundry is spilled in front of all the I-Ops?! Not cool at al ...more

In the second story we are introduced to the relationship between Roi and Melissa. This couple is almost TSTL. There is a constant back and forth repetition of should we shouldn't we, no wonder their first joining was anything but violent. It's tiresome reading about these 2 main characters. Again the premise is great the follow through is just slow moving and repetitious and just doesn't give me that I can't put this down feeling. I really want to love these stories but as of now they are just ...more

'Critical Intelligence' is another awesome read in this series. I think this series gets better with each book, and I'm only on book two. The storyline was awesome. Full of action, creative scenarios, romance, suspense and some very good characters. The hot and steamy scenes were heat-inducing-oh-my-gawd great. Missy is one hell of a bad-ass. I thought Peren was tough, but Missy is one you definitely don't mess with. I love how Peren, Missy and Melanie were brought into the story and how alpha m ...more

This story was better than the first but a little tough to follow. In addition to a complicated network of spies, the hero and heroine spent so much time going back and forth and knowing each other and then being surprised by each other it was a bit fatiguing.

I thought book 1 was a great read. Book 2 is over the top.
I love a kick ass chick anytime of the day.I love hard bodies and guns too. You mix all this together and the chick doesn't become useless or whiny, this just became the best book ever.
I loved Roi and Mel's story. The fact that Mel kicks ass and is just as capable or better than the guys just steps it up another notch. The back story between them was awesome. The continuing theme through the series is a great story.

A lot better than the first. More in depth and a lot more action. I got kind of confused in the middle with all of the names and people they are trying to find, etc. But I think I got the gist of it. What I find really strange about these stories is that you get to know the characters as they are NOW. You know NOTHING about their pasts. How they were changed, or how old some of them are, or where they grew up, etc. It's all a mystery. But surprisingly it doesn't really bother me; the book was fi ...more

Critical Intelligence is book two in Immortal Ops series by Mandy M. Roth. Wow this was an improvement from book one. The plot thickens, lots more action and we learn more about the I-Ops Team. The story is a short story, but it is not rushed and more character development made for a much more appealing read! It also helped that we get characters that have already known each other in book one giving

Roi caught my attention in the first book in the Immortal Ops series. He had a sarcastic attitude and a zinging come back for anything said to him. I knew immediately he was going to be one hell of a character to read. He did not disappoint, neither did his gal. Missy is full of sass attitude and a ton of bad assery! A fair amount of sexual tension had built between Missy and Roi in the previous novella.

The pairing of two witty alphas who always manage to get the last word in, turned out to be

Oh man, this was better than the first in the series! Loved it!!!!

Missy is an Intelligence Officer, but what she spies on does not die easily at all. She is not what she seems. Roi is a finely tuned sexy pain in her ass and she thinks she can handle him just fine. Well, let me tell you..... it's a dynamite filled explosion in the making.

Love this one, get it.......... you won't be able to put it down!

HOTT! Roi went down just like I thought he would...hard! Missy surprised me with all her wonders but I had a feeling something was off with her from the way she was taking it all in stride in the beginning. Once the truth was starting to come out I was floored and their prior meeting was great. Kind of gross but good non the less. I can't wait to read what's in store next.

Loved it, did not disappoint. In some series, the characters from the first book do not have much of a role in the next but not in this case. I loved that all the characters still features loads and have not been totally abandoned. Brilliant love the mystery and suspense as well as all the hotness from book 1.

Roi is such an interesting character! This for me was better than the first book. It was more developed, too. It's great to see that feel where the book just shifts it to other characters being the main. There were a few points it seemed to drone on instead of flowing. I especially felt there were a few times ideas weren't carried through to the end. However, a few times things would be left more open and then further be resolved by the end. Not a bad story over-all.
Love this book to pieces!!! Missy is a sassy spunky little spitfire!! Just my kind of gal!! Roi really has his work cut out for him in winning his mate!! They are a fabulous pair and I was really into their whole dynamic! Gotta love a couple that bickers!

I really enjoy ed the intrigue and paranormal elements of the story. The whole thing flowed very nicely and never had a dull moment. It was beautifully paced with smart and fun storytelling! I honestly wanted more!

Part of Kindle Unlimited. Book 2 in series - Standalone read. This book is parallel to first book. She's has a job and a past no one knows about. He wants her but she keeps pushing him away. Major twists and turns in this book.

After reading book one I couldn't wait to read book 2and this book didn't disappoint. You get shapeshifters and so much more. Add in sexy alphas with humor and I can honestly say these are some of my favorite books.

I have to say that this was a hard book to finish. While I like smut as much as the next guy this was too much. The sex scenes were never ending and I found myself skimming over them to get to the actual story.

Parts of the story were a little convoluted, so I was confused and had to go back and re-read some bits. But otherwise, this was a pretty fun read. I'm glad these books are turning out to be decent, since I purchased them on a whim. :-)

This was a much improved story from the lady book. Still very adult, but we got to see more of the plot. I enjoyed it more. It was very cloak and dagger. Recommend for a quick read.

Same issues as the first one - everything happened too fast and most of the conversation between the main characters didn't make sense. I don't think I'll go on with this series.

I'll be honest, I usually avoid erotic/romantic fantasy, horror, Sci-fi...but after reading "King, King, Goose" by Mandy M. Roth, I decided to take a chance on her Immortal Ops series. I'm not a prude, but I'm not into graphic descriptions of sex either, yet..I could not put down either "Immortal Ops" or "Critical Intelligence". The stories were well written and in my opinion would have still been fantastic with the porn...

Well written characters, excellent plots and sub-plots, were-wolves, Fae,

I liked this story more than the first book! I really enjoyed Missy and Roi's interactions with each other. Roi is hilarious throughout the entire book. He makes many asinine and hilarious sarcastic comments which made me laugh so many times. Missy was a very sassy and witty woman. She was very enjoyable and one of the best heroines in the series. These two complimented each other very well in the story. There is lots of action, adventure and even more interesting facts to learn about the charac ...more

The chatacters in this book were better developed, yet the misunderstandings that arose between them were annoying and petty. The story line was cliche. I don't want to rate it too badly as it was somewhat enjoyable, but not to the standard of other books in the same genre which far surpasses it..

Story line had a lot of potential - but there only seemed to be sex scenes joined by a little plot.
