Wow! Now that was a fantastic fun fast paced story. I was literally glued to the pages as though I felt like I was a part of the story. The author’s easy flowing writing captures you immediately as the characters come alive and have you either melting from their sexy and sweet charisma or has you in shock from the cruelty of their actions.
The story has everything you could ask for in a story such as lots of action, drama, sex, passion, shape-shifting, fae, and were’s, etc ….

I got this as part of the Immortal Ops Box Set Books 1-4 (Shifters Romance)

~ 4 Strategic Stars ~

Wilson and Kimberly are put together as part of Dr. Krauss, our evil mad scientist, for the purpose of creating the next super soldier. This is book four in the Immortal Ops series by Mandy M. Roth and it is fast paced, non-stop action. I really enjoyed how the book progressed, the action and the relationship building between our H/H’s.

Wilson was captured, tortured and abused for almost two months

Wilson and Kimberly are thrown together as part of the Krauss evil plans to create his race of super soldiers. Held in one of his hidden research labs for entirely too long Kimberly and Wilson must escape, especially after finding out the specifics on his next course of research involving them directly. Strategic Vulnerability is fast paced, non-stop action. There is so much at stake! They must escape. The dire situation is about to get worse, quickly.

I liked Kimberly. She was very emotionally s
This is a really intriguing series I just wish the wait between books were not so long!! I devoured the first three books and almost forgot how much I liked them by the time I discovered this one was out! I did a quick reread of the series to refresh my faulty memory and then jumped head first into this newest book!!

Really great story telling and such fascinating new twists!! This time around the story had a more mainstream feel. Sure there is still steamy sex but not as much as you would expect

Strategic Vulnerability was shorter then the others but it was still good, Wilson is taken by an evil man who wants to experiment on genetics and such, and by strange fate he meets his mate Kimberly after she is taken and brought in.
They fight to keep each other safe during captivity. When they get the chance the to escape they take it.
After the ordeal they separate to rest and heal.
When Wilson is in better health he comes for his mate to finally claim her and their future.

It was a little dis

Wilson the rat which I find funny was one of my favorites. And Kimberley was perfect for him. I loved how she had the women lead the men to him. Again Ms. Roth's style of writing is one of my favorites :)
Finally the rat man gets his moment. Throughout the other books in this series you get glimpses of Wilson and his punchy humor so I was looking forward to seeing him fall in love and find his mate. This story was unexpected but still fun if kidnapping, torture and forced impregnation can be made fun....yeah something about that sounds entirely wrong but somehow all that goes together and then to add on top of all that romance abounds during his imprisonment.

A wacky crazy ride that kind of made s

Yep, the 'Immortal Ops' series is now one of my favorite series. 'Strategic Vulnerability' pulled me in from the start and didn't let go, just like the previous books in this series. The storyline keeps getting better. The way it played out had me on edge during some parts and full of happiness at others. Full of action, suspense, humor, romance and more hot and steamy scenes. The paranormal aspect that has been present since book one has been awesome. From the onset of this series, Wilson has h ...more

Quick and fun and well written. I loved Wilson the wererat, in his own book of course! The click between Roger and Kimberly was instant but also believable. I was a little put off with the last minute separation of the two after the big rescue - it seemed contrived as a plot device and made me question Kimberly's intelligence and judgment. Otherwise, awesome book and great close to this series.

This series has matured greatly and I do like it and will continue to read the books as they are published. I would however like to see more depth in the installments.

Couldn't believe they gave up on Wilson so easily I doubt he would've left them like that. Krauss really was a monster in this one with what he was doing not only to Wilson but to everyone he captured. I had a feeling of what they'd done to Kim I thought Wilson was going to be able to do magic and get them out of it once she was there and their magic combined. I really like Wilson, I knew he was a little hurt by all the rat jokes in all the stories. Him and Kim were prefect for each other in tha ...more

Strategic Vulnerability is book 4 and I have to say this was the best one out of them all.
I liked Wilson from the first book and always loved his quick wit! He is even more lovable here as the hero!
I am so glad I stuck with this series and read them all.

I love Wilson! He's my favourite! I love that the goofball is quite the romantic when it comes to Kim. I felt she rushed this story and it could have been told a bit better. However, it's still a good story. Wilson just rocks ;)

A short book but sweet! Its the story that defines a mated pair, that its not just about sex, but about a connection with another person.

Better written, and, a little funny. Its great to have the story of Wilson!!!

This was the best yet in the series. The Rat knows how to treat a lady! Humor, action and romance.
Gail Newbold
This book was definitely better than the last installment. Its nice to see that Wilson ended up being a redeemable character. But even though I'm 4 books into the serirs, I still can't stand the mates of the I-Ops team. Well, not all of them. I like Missy. She's the only one who doesn't really blink at the violence, only that others sometimes see her use it. In any event, if you like strong female leads, plausible and non convoluted story lines, this isn't the series for you. If you want somethi ...more

This was another awesome story to the series! I was not expecting for Wilson's mate to be intertwined so well in the series. There are quite a few more interesting events that continue and are introduced in the story that makes this series even more thrilling than it already is. I enjoyed reading Kimberly and Wilson's relationship; this was one of my favorites in the series because of how determined and driven both people were about the other person. I liked that Kimberly was a very smart and lo ...more

Alas! Best of the rest thus far! This is what I was waiting for....An original, interesting tale that cast an unlikely hero into the limelight! Wilson, the rat, turns out to do a 360 in this story but I guess being abducted, experimented on and tortured can do that to you. Wilson is definitely nothing like the others when it comes to intimacy with his woman. I love that the sex was toned down and that there was more of a live/lust story between Wilson and Kim. On my Were (Rat) Scale of Hotness, ...more

Yeah we focused on the story a bit more on this book. It was a bit more enjoyable. I wish it was a little more it depth but it still has me coming back for more. So that says something. (Spoiler)I can't wait till all the team finds their mates and maybe then we can just focus on a story.

Part of Kindle Unlimited. 4th book in series of Standalone books about Ops Shifters and their mates. Wilson's story was a sad one and I'll give it a 4 1/2 read.
