Publisher's Summary

Paranormal Security and Intelligence Operative Duke Marlow has a new mission: find, interrogate and possibly eliminate the target - Mercy Deluca. He knows looks can be deceiving, but it's hard to believe the beautifully quirky woman running around in a superhero t-shirt is a viable threat. The sexy little biomedical engineer quickly proves she is more than he bargained for and Intel has it all wrong - she's not the enemy. Far from it. Intel also forgot to mention one vital piece of information - she's Duke's mate. This immortal alpha werewolf doesn't take kindly to her being in danger.
When Mercy accepted a position within Donavon Dynamics Corporation, she thought it was to help cure disease and to make a difference for mankind. She had no idea what her new career path truly entailed - monsters masquerading under the guise of scientific research. Unable to stomach the atrocities she's uncovered, she reaches out through what she hopes is the proper channels, asking for help. Mercy gets more than she bargained for when a team of paranormal hotties show up on her doorstep ready to take down the Corporation. One in particular is able to get under her skin, both aggravating and exciting her in ways she can't explain.

PSI-Ops is a fast paced story about were shifters, witches, fae and other creatures that go bump in the night. This story centers around Duke, who is a centuries old werewolf that doesn't trust anyone except his team and Mercy Deluca, a uber genius who lacks social skills. Mercy is working for a company that is doing horrible testing on people, shifters and animals. She is desperate to get a message to a test subjects team members to help her free the trapped prisoners and unfortunately (or fortunately) she reaches Duke instead. The one team member that doesn't like anyone. He thinks she is nuts when Mercy first calls and doesn't realize until later that maybe she isn't as nuts as he first thought.

Duke is an alpha male to the core. He is strong, demanding, overbearing and once he realizes Mercy is his mate, he is very very protective of his woman. Mercy is a genius that doesn't know how to respond to Duke but she knows one thing for certain, she belongs to no man.

The interaction between the team members is hilarious. I like Stryker a lot. I can't wait until I read his book. The side characters make the book enjoyment and the main characters story is sweet and passionate. This books packs a lot of story into the small amount of time. The characters are well developed and the story is action packed with some hilarious moments and passionate smex scenes.

I have never heard the narrator's voice until this book and let me say yummy! I love the accent that he gave to Styker's character. Yes I would definitely look for him again.

Bottom line, yes you should listen to this book. At under eleven dollars, I would say just buy it and save the credit for something a bit more pricey. I'm hoping they put the rest of the series on audible.

- Mel "I'm a lover of books, both read and audible."

4 hrs and 53 min of my life wasted.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The book being better written. The premise for the story had promise, but it was so poorly written that nothing could have helped it in it's present form. It felt as if it was rushed through most of the story just to get to the graphically described sex scenes. I'm not anti- sex scene - far from it, but there has to be more to a book intellectually to hold my interest. It felt as if the author was following the advice of Chandler Bing's romance-novelist mom from friends: 'Just come up with 4 or 5 acronyms for the male organ, throw in some heaving breasts and anyone can write this crap.' (I paraphrase, but you get the idea).

Has Act of Mercy turned you off from other books in this genre?

It has certainly turned me off reading anything else written by Mandy Roth.

What aspect of Mason Lloyd’s performance would you have changed?

Nothing! He did a great job with the poorly written book he had to work with.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Act of Mercy?

See the answer to the first question above about what would have made the book a better listening experience for me.

Any additional comments?

Seriously, the blurb about it should have read, "a touching love story about a man and his penis." It almost felt as if the story was incidental to the sex scenes. I think the premise had great potential, but it was so thinly and poorly written as to be merely a vehicle for the sexual descriptions, and even those were rushed and thin. In short, this was a terrible book.
