Sigh. This is more a 2, but it's depressing me giving out so many 2's, so I'm going to give this a 3 just for my own sanity.

This could've been excellent if it was longer and there was more character development. The author gave super neat back stories to Asher and Jinx, yet we're only told a few basics without the full story. It's like someone showing you a delicious dessert and only being allowed to taste the topping.

I have nothing against either character, and I quite like madams. It's the l

Asher and Jinx

A story about the mysterious Colonel Asher Brooks and Jinx, interesting pair to begin 😉 Their story made the Immortal Ops world very much interesting.. I just wish🙏 that their story was longer as they waited for a very long time to be together.. Hopefully more background story of Asher it was like reading a glimpse of who he really is... I just hope I get to know more as the story goes further in the Immortal-Ops Universe ... 😳

ADMINISTRATIVE CONTROL (Immortal Ops Novella) by Mandy Roth
Publication Date: July 22, 2014

Rated: 3 Stars

I love this series but was disappointed that Asher’s HEA and background on himself didn’t deserve a full-length novel. I felt this novella was rushed and thrown together so as to set up the upcoming storyline. There was misspelled words and some grammar issues. I think he deserved more than that. I am glad that I read this story due to the informati

I was given an ARC by the author for an honest review

ohhh my god i sooooooooo loved Asher's story!!!

Ash knows Jinx is his mate for over a 1000 years but he is dead on keeping her safe from him and his powers.
Jinx has no idea that she is Asher's mate but when he is close she finds it hard to resist.

When trouble knocks on Jinx's brothel Asher is ready to kill anyone who will think of hurting his mate.

fast paced filled with action and makes you wanna read more!!!

the only negative is that it was too

Short novella

Short novella that involves Jinx and Asher. Asher is not all he seems. When Jinx is in trouble the rest of the team finds out just what Asher is hiding.
This was a good quick read that lays the foundation for more books.

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 th

Another book by Mandy M Roth that I absolutely love.
Just how powerful Colonel Asher Brooks is. It's a secret he's fond of keeping. He is the point person for the Immortal OPS and has seen everything that could be seen. Now as he arrives at the docks in Seattle he is seeing things that are big and who ever is behind it means business.
His biggest concern now 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

I absolutely loved reading the story of Colonel Asher Brooks and Jeaneathea Isis Nevania Xenia. I loved the chemistry between them. The storyline dynamics and the strength of characters was freaking awesome.

Asher and Jinx has known each other for centuries. And Asher has always known that Jinx was his mate. Not until she was in danger would he admit it to hisself and others how much he loved her. No one knows how powerful Asher really is until Jinx is threaten. And everyone finds out what's he'

Unsatisfying on the relationship side but great on the overall background theme.
Really the worst of these books on the romantic side.
Asher finally gives us more information about himself but we still don’t know his full capabilities and are only given a short brief on his reasoning for his behaviour towards Jinx.
Whilst I loved the overload of intense and shocking information given in this short story and boy wasn’t it a doozy, the actual romance between Asher and Jinx just wasn’t believable.

hard to rate -- on one hand an ok short story (yes short story, not novella as advertised), info to expand series/spin-off/world but no real depth to the romance story or characters, kinda just surface -- he's known for centuries she's his mate but now she's in danger so he decides time to claim to which after some b*tching she's ok with & confirmation that he's not human but not made overly clear what he is/his background. Also it's just a short story priced way to high for what ended up gettin ...more

I couldn't get behind this couple. In the overall world that has been built, staying away from your mate is tantamount to torture so I don't believe in the least that the H would stay away from h while she's having sexual encounters with others FOR CENTURIES. It just...doesn't fit with the description of the mating bond that has been built up in previous books. Another point of contention was that H and h had intense history, both together and alone, but none of this was really explained in dept ...more

Loving the Immortal World series as a whole, but I'm seriously not liking how abruptly the individual stories are ending. Personally, I think $5-$6 is too much for how short these stories are, and I think the author is doing her fans a disservice by charging so much for so little writing. I'm only continuing the series because I'm really interested in seeing how the whole thing wraps up and how theses shifters find their mates.

Good, but very short on details.

We have no idea what kind of a shifter Asher is, or why he was considered a myth. Needs more of everything- plot, details, epilogue. Can he and Jinx still have off-spring or are they too old? There's just so many questions to make it worth anything over $1.00. Wish I hadn't paid what I did, but it was still worth getting for the progression of the series.

Hardcore, intense action.

As with all the books in the Immortal Ops series, this one kept me enthralled, as the characters seemed to walk off the pages and into my heart.

One of my favorite scenes in the book is when Asher is fighting some bad guys while discussing his past behavior with Jinx. Wack one guy, throat punch another, walk over a blood-covered body as if they were nothing but bugs to be swatted out of the way.

This is one story I didn't see coming but one I am glad that Mandy gave us. Her writing always leaves me wanting more. She has the knack of giving us everything in a story to keep you addicted. With heart pounding action, hot and sizzling alpha males but with a%% kicking women you can't go wrong. These hero's and heroines and their crazy friendships and loyalty make for a great read. As much as there is danger I always find myself laughing out loud.
2 stars - all a bit rushed and alluding too much to events in previous books. There was no real reason in why the male protagonist decided to claim his mater after he stayed apart from her so long, nor why she made a token refusal, only to capitulate to all his wants in the next breath - Cue mega eye rolling!!

Short but good

This story is about Asher, the I-Ops boss, and his mate Jinx a succubus. It's sort of a bridge story, linking the past and present. I love this author's work. She is gifted at world and character creation. In order to really enjoy the books in this series you should read them in order as they build on one another.

Definite theme i have with this series is they are all lacking. For example. So much more could’ve been explained-should’ve been explained about Asher. His powers, limits, abilities, his past...I want to know it all.

While this was a great read and loved reading it, it almost felt like a filler. Maybe that’s what Roth intended since it is a novella. It just left me with questions.

Colonel Asher and Jinx

Col. Asher is head of IOPS isvin Seattle for a clean up operation and has to see an acquaintance named Jinx about information he has had her getting. Jinx helped Eadan and Inara with a local thug and is in trouble. Can Asher get to Jinx in time to help her. Can Asher finally admit he's in love with Jinx? I highly recommend this book and series.

Asher’s Story

This is one shorter than most, but having read slightly out of order, it’s nice to find out more about Asher and about Jinx. Plus, with the cliffhanger, I really want to find out what’s happened to a character presumed dead.

Colonel Brooks is JINXed. (Sorry about that. Couldn’t help it.) This is just a novelette, though an interesting one.

We finally get a glimpse of what all the hints about what Brooks is and JINX is perfect for him.

Fave scenes: having to call their wives before going on a mission.

Asher and Jinx, this could have been way better. Should have been better! They had 1000 years or more and I read this book and thought that's it? The book was rushed and left me wondering what happened. ..This fell short of most of the series books.

What next

So more mystery begins taking the story where is to be seen... would have liked yet again more back story on Asher and Jinx maybe moving forward more bits and pieces will drop.

Jinx and Asher are an explosive couple. He has powers that he has kept secret as the leader of the I-Ops. When his need to protect her leads him to claim her as his mate things get even more interesting.

I've yet to read a Mandy Roth book that isn't enjoyable. She keeps you hanging on to the end and then hooks you for the next.
