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 stable. Considering all the horrors that are thrown her way she handled them all extraordinarily well. I’m sure the last thing she ever expected was one of her grad study trips to turn into the nightmare that it did.

Who would have ever thought a were-rat could be sexy? I can imagine a were-rat creepy. Roth and Wilson do were-rat very smexy. Wilson, were-rat, filthy, two months of captivity without a shower and a shave still managed to pull off sexy and he did it very well.

The previous books three heroines played an interesting role also. I enjoyed seeing them stand up for something on their own that they truly believed in. It was a very small part. It just reiterated the fact that this series is full of strong females that will do what they feel is right and just and to hell with the consequences.

I was slightly confused at Wilson’s complete character change between Strategic Vulnerability and all of the previous books in the series. In the three earlier books he is portrayed as the jokester but most of the time he came off as an ass. Even in the dire prisoner situation he tried to be light hearted in the company of Kimberly, but he never came off as an ass.
