No one knows just how powerful Colonel Asher Brooks is. It’s a secret he’s fond of keeping. As point person for the Immortal Ops, he has seen just about everything the supernatural community has to offer. That is until he arrives on the docks in Seattle to find a mess his men didn’t make.
Something big is going down there and it means business. His concern is for Jinx, a leggy redheaded succubus who calls the area home. He’s spent centuries denying what he knows to be true, thinking he’s keeping his woman safe and that it’s for the best.
When Jinx calls to tell him she has information for him, he worries the woman who drives him mad with lust might be in danger. He’ll do anything to protect her, even if that means claiming her for his own, whether she’s up for being claimed or not.

Title: Administrative Control
Series: Immortal Ops #6
Author: Mandy M. Roth

My Rating: 4.5
Administrative Control is the sixth title in the Immortal Ops series (a series that connects to others in the Immortal Ops world). Jinx and Asher’s story tugged at my heart for so many reasons, their long love (centuries-long), the fast-paced action, and Asher’s protectiveness, in spite of his fears about himself. And there were so many times I really wanted to smack Asher upside the head for being such a dumb, stubborn man at the same time that he’s a genius in other things.
We met Jinx previously, and I liked her then, but I really loved her in Administrative Control. She’s stubborn, powerful, smart, and fierce… and completely in love with a man who is her mate but “for her own good” has kept them separated for so many, long years. When we finally discover just why Asher has not claimed his mate it was… just a wow moment for me. He’s what? I didn’t see that coming in a gazillion years. And, in a way, I loved him more for his sacrifice (but he still earned a strong, stern talking to).
The action is so fast-paced, intense, and dangerous. The villains, both seen and unseen, are as vile as you think you’ll ever encounter… but I have a feeling there is even more nastiness ahead in this series as far as villains go. I love the fact that we get to see previous couples, and perhaps future ones, as well, as the series continues. I’m a reader who immensely enjoys a connected world, and all of these series that make up the Immortal Ops universe are delivering on their promise, big time. I’m having a blast here, and Administrative Control is beyond my ability to explain why I enjoyed it so much. Perhaps I just fall into the “loving a stubborn, hurting hero making the supreme sacrifice for the woman he loves” category of reader.
In any event, this one is worth the high rating, and if you haven’t discovered this world yet… what are you waiting for? Get started today, especially if you love a hot hero, a sassy heroine, dangerous situations, and bits of humor tossed about.
