Missy Carter leads a boring, overworked life as a system analyst for the State Department or rather, that's what she lets everyone believe. In reality, her life is anything but boring. 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

Roi and Missy

Critical Intelligence is a lot longer than the first book in the series. This has a more developed plot and more action. What I don't like is that they have too much love/hate relationship, though I understand its in their nature. Its just too much for me.... 😑

Though the good part is that Missy is amazing, this book was able to show how a woman can be a bad-ass...

Another good read 😏👍

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

I loathe 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 a ...more

So I really liked Missy character. She had a definite take no shit attitude. I liked how these books are short. We don't get a lot of character development but we get enough to know a little about these people. Also I like how this book was almost a continuation of the first but different characters. I liked learning about Missy's past and how she came to be how she is. She is definitely one of the toughest chicks out there.

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

I definitely did not enjoy this one as much as the first one. There was literally like no chemistry between Roi and Missy that I could feel. There was no real development. It honestly seemed pretty toxic to me, which is super disappointing compared to the first book. There was no natural development at all to the story or to the characters, and it honestly was problematic in some places, especially at the end during a scene when Roi literally is having rough sex with Missy to “teach her a lesson ...more

Shame on me for trying to give this author a second shot. Problem is, I have the same issues with this book as the first. So, I am going to copy/paste my previous review to save myself some time.

This book was a poorly written attempt at being Kresley Cole or Gena Showalter. The world building lacked depth, the characters lacked depth, and I found myself skipping over sections just to see if the story would redeem itself.

It's a story about shifters, and not ONCE did the hero shift. If he did, it

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.

Ok this book was so much better than the first book in the series. It was more developed than the first book. This is a paranormal romance with Alpha males and kick butt heroines. Geoffroi "Roi" Majors, Immortal Ops (I-Ops) Team Member and Missy Charter had the best chemistry. Oh my gosh I loved this book. Missy an Intelligence Officer was a kiss azz heroine; the best ever. And what she spies on cant easily be killed. I loved how her BFFs, Melanie Daly and Peren Matthews were included in this bo ...more

I liked this book even better than the first! Although I guess that could be in part to the fact that Roi was my favorite character in the first and this book is all based around him. I am so happy that he did not give up with Missy. Hearing those two banter was comical to say the least. It was like back in grade school when the person you teased was actually someone you liked. We get to see a lot more into the I-ops team and the difficulties they are faced with other departments. Although some ...more

Odd -- but I guess Kindle didn't mark this read as it was a duo book? Oo

Better than the first -- her skill progressed & the dude wasn't a complete ass. May go to book three if it's on a 99 cent deal or something.

Just as good, if not better version of this book which I loved. "Roi"nd Missy have this chemistry that shows thru the book. Their love story is full of ups and downs, twists and turns.
Roi Majors is second in control of the I-Ops and he has no real respect for women. He is a manwhore who thinks there will never be the perfect woman for him. Until her…the woman he recently kidnapped to protect.

Roi Majors is a wolf shifter working for I-Ops. He's cocky, sexy, and screws any woman that crosses his path. His team of shifters are trying to find Krauss, an evil master mind trying to create the super solider. To locate Krauss, his team gets help from Missy Carter, a tiny little spitfire. Upon realizing Missy is his mate, Roi becomes very protective and constantly puts his foot in his mouth :)

Great second book in the Anniversary series. This series has so much more than the original version. There are two main characters, and 'characters' they are. Melissa, or Missy Carter and Geffroi, Roi, Majors. Roi realizes fairly early in the story that Missy is his mate and spends most of the book, when not fighting villains, trying to convince Missy that they are meant to be immortal mates. Unfortunately, he has much more experience in one-night stands and his smart remarks keep him in hot wat ...more

Roi Majors is the second in command of the I-Ops team. He has no care for chain of command or respect. As far as he is concerned where there is a lady you will find Roi. He loves women, all kinds. Missy Carter is an agent for the Government and does not fall for Roi’s womanizing ways. Deep down she is so taken by him. She worked hard to get where she is and will not allow a man to get in the way, or will she? Her true job is with a shadow agency that humans do not even know exist. Roi is taken b ...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

Ug! A good story idea, but really, really badly written. The author uses sex as a filler, instead of actually telling a good tale. When the two main characters starting having sex during a gun fight is when I finally gave up trying to read the drivel. I like steamy scenes as much as anyone, but during a gun fight? Give me a break! Sheesh.

playboy shifter finds a reluctant mate ...she's as powerful as he is and just as deadly....they both resist the bond...but true mates win every time...No escaping this bond. reread today and the story still thrills.

Okay this book was definitely better than the first. I found the characters a lot more interesting but still got annoyed with the fact that they were actively being attacked by Vampires but still managed to find time to play tonsil hockey. Onwards and upwards.
Not sure why this isn't listed as a separate book as I'm reading the updated/revised/extended 2016 remastered version. Lots of this I can not remember where there's new text it's been too long. I have the 3rd book to read and wait for the 2nd shadow ops to come out~
The H is a cringeworthy asshole. He does have one or two MINUTE moments of being MILDLY ok, but I can't remember the last time I've read a H this bad. He's a slut. And he's been a slut for decades and LOVES it. It is THE goal and highlight of his life. I have nothing against sluts if they are doing it because 'they want to' and not because the feel they have to or are unworthy etc. I don't really like to read about lead characters spreading it around once they meet their other half, but it's not ...more

Great characters with strong alpha males but equally strong and capable women.
Roi is a bit of a disaster in this but in a lovely way. He keeps putting his foot in it with Missy and treats her like one of his one-night bimbos as he doesn’t realise she is his mate.
Missy’s story is one hell of a surprise and loved the ending when she kicked a**.
The background story of Roi and Missy when she was a baby bought me to tears. Not sure why Missy’s dad lied about everything like he did. It caused so much

This was a lot better than book one. All the female characters should be like Missy, she kicks ass better than any man and is super tough while at the same time being a cute girlie girl. I liked her spunk, though she needs to work on just barging headlong into dangerous situations especially now in her condition. Other than that small flaw, she was quite a cool character.

Roi’s character was actually quite redeemable, after getting a glimpse of him on book one, his character quite frankly appalle
