Publisher's Summary

Paranormal Military Shapeshifter Romance

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.

This audiobook is intended for mature audiences.

Another hot one!

LOVED Brooks' book. I enjoyed knowing he was more than human but also admire him for going so long without sex cause he met his mate 1,000 years ago. Jinx waa awesome! I loved her kick butt attitude especially when she finds out Asher is her mate and he has known all this time. It would not be an I-Ops book without humor, so you get that along with a little violence and alot of heat. The narrator was perfect for this book.

This is a wonderful story with a really good HEA. The narrator does a great job of making the characters come to life and bring you into the action. Recommend to all shifter lovers. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Col. Asher Brooks centuries old secrets revealed

Would you listen to Administrative Control again? Why?

Yes. I've read the book, listened an will do both again. I love the whole I Ops series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Can't choose. Love the banter with all of the "guys" their wit and boyish antics even though they are dangerous supernatural beings. Asher tries to pretend annoyance but gets a kick out their actions. Learning about the elusive Col. Asher was a surprise and Jinx is a strong, enticing woman.

Which character – as performed by Rider – was your favorite?

All of the ops team of misfits.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Centuries old secrets revealed to give into love.

Any additional comments?

As advertised, a novella with strong male female ongoing romance. Stoic Asher and caring Jinx have loved each other for centuries but because of history and fear of a repeat they have never allowed their relationship.

The one thing that will bring Asher to Jinx is a threat to her safety. Look out bad guys.

It was great fun to watch the "boys" antics and see the leaders try to lead them. The story opens up all kinds of future intrigue and I for one could not wait to delved into future stories.

Since I knew going in this was a short read, I was not disappointed just anxious for more of these great characters, their loves, battles and revealed secrets.

So much missing in the story

I really like this series, so this book is great for moving things along, it was not so great at giving details. I feel like this book brought up more questions than answers. So many new plot points added, but in a really vague manner. I have to hope that the next book and the spin-off series will bring things to light.

Loved meeting Jinx in the last book and hoped to see her again. Not at all surprised to see her paired with Asher and that he is not a standard human. I am disappointed that we do not get their whole stories, sure things are mentioned, but there is so much more there to be told. Had this been a full book instead of a novella, it could have been epic.

This is a smexy steamy read, in the end. Oh boy, is it ever hawt!! All that waiting makes for a seriously combustible mating!

Like with other books in the series, it is a mixed narrative going between the leads POV. You also get a couple bonus POV from other characters.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Rider Strong, who has a delicious read. I love the gruff tone of his voice and it really compliments the story. He has a terrific pace through the read and moves with the action. I really like that he did not try to do women's voices, just adjusted his tone for their dialogue. I would love to hear more of his reads, it was a delightful experience for my ears!

I enjoyed this book and am eager to see what happens next in the series. I did feel there was so much missing and it would have been better with more story added.

*** I hope this review was useful to you and helped your decision to read or not read this book. I love reading and sharing my opinions with other readers. I listen at double speed; all my impressions of the narration are from that setting. Thanks for taking the time to read my review!
