Loved it, loved it, loved it. James and Laney have a awesome love story. Two people who feel that they are unlovable find love in an unlikely place. Hagen has a tortured past that his left him both mentally and physically wounded. While Laney feels like a social outcast who is harboring some secrets of her own. Nevertheless, they can't resist each other. They both have exactly what the other needs. I truly enjoyed reading this story, especially the first date. it was action packed, sexy, and fun. The attraction was combustible, the emotion was real, and their connection was undeniable. I a eager to read more from this series.

I really loved reading Act of Surrender. The chemistry between James and Laney was hot. Both of them fit together great. At times the book was so funny. James may be a doctor but at times he could be kind of stupid. I loved how Laney wasn't like other women. She was a person into herself with her hair striped purple. Truly one of the best books I have read.

After pain, comes love. Good Read ***A gifted copy was provided by the author for an honest review*** This is James Hagen’s story. We, as the readers, were first introduced to him back in book one as abducted, tortured and experimented on for a year by Corp. Since then he has been in a horrible mental place and doesn’t know where his head is at that moment.  He is brought back in to the fold after being rescued and we start with him sitting in a lab a few weeks after his return. He is looking forward to an online chat with GothGirl ( our heroine) who he finds that he can chat with and be more himself with than others. There is some issues with GothGirl but James finds he can tell her his troubles and she listens without telling him what to do and how to do it…. No judgment. Laney aka GothGirl is a wicked hacker with skills that are not humanly possible and is also a friend out of Dr. Mercy. Lane has all the files she hacked from the company and as fate would have it they are all on subject p87, who was James. She has also been on her own for many years after finding her parents were not her real ones and has discovered she was part of the Asia Project. Laney is a girl who has lived her life off the radar since she has been abandoned by her parents. She knew deep down that the government was covering something up. She spent her time looking for information she could use, and expose the truth on her website/blog. Laney never thought that her digging got the attention of someone, and that someone was out to kill her.  In this book, you have a whole can of worms opened up. The PSI-OPs and the Immortal Ops teams are both working on the issues created by the company and the other bad guys, who they have now found have people inside their teams and their governments. They don't know who to trust and have found they have been lied to for years.  The search for the truth and the building of the sexual chemistry between the H/h and the emotional connection was terrific. I love how these two wounded souls were able to find their way to each other and heal themselves from their tortured pasts. The only glitch or thing I didn’t like is when the author portrayed Laney as a loner but yet showed her constant center point supporting or safeguarding the homeless veterans in her hotel encampment. Just seemed off kilter for someone who was a “loner”.  I found that odd but could be a character flaw. I didn’t like that, could have been written a little different but c’ la vie.  My rating: 4.3 stars ****

This man could punch my v-card any day.   5 stars OH MY!  I love Hagen so was thrilled to read his story here!  Gothgirl cracked me up, in an adorable way.  I got all the way to the end before I made the connections to a book I had read earlier, so shame on me for not catching it sooner!  Gotta love Mandy though!  So few authors today can you read book after book – in multiple genres, series, storylines – and STILL love them, be entranced by them, want to read even more and still be surprised with the twists and turns as well as the different storylines & tone of them!  Mandy is pure genius when it comes to finding all these amazing ways to tell us “bedtime” stories!  She is able to keep every single one fresh and interesting and unique, but still has that Mandy flair that you crave for.  She finds ways to make you laugh, cry, lust and love every character, she can suck you into a story so fast that you don’t even realize it until you read my 2 most hated words in a book – THE END!  But that is just one more reason why I love Mandy!  Here are a couple more:  Sweet Virginal Goddess, the man is ripped!  She nearly put her hands to his chest just to pet him…WOW.  I got my V-card punched by the hottest, hung werewolf, ever…  *dreamy sigh*  Oh how I wish I could find me a hunkahunka burning love too!  Hmmm, Mandy, do you think you could set me up? :)

James Hagen is a former PSI-Ops operative who had been held captive and tortured by the Corporation. After being rescued in the previous book he is back home with his team trying to heal both mentally and physically. During this time he befriends a young computer hacker who has become a person of interest to the PSI-Ops. Laney is convinced that paranormals are real and the government is hiding their existance. She agrees to meet her online friend James and all hell breaks loose as the Corporation tries to take out Laney. James immediately recognizes that she is his mate and his wolf goes ballistic in an attempt to save her from the attack. I really loved this story, James is protective of Laney but not over the top arrogant like we get with most alpha heroes. The romance was sweet and sexy with lots of faced paced action. The supporting characters were hilarious and I can't wait until they all get their HEA. All and all, another great read from Mandy M. Roth. *I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Great Series! This is a great paranormal series. This is the second book in the Immortal Ops:PSI-Ops series by Mandy Roth. This book can be read as a standalone, but once you read it you will want to go back and read the first book. I really enjoyed James and Laney’s story. I was happy that James finally meets the perfect woman for him. If you love a great paranormal romance with some suspense then you need read this series.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

This has to be one of my favorite PSI-OPS books so far, I was rooting for James Hagan to find his happily ever after. He had been through so much and I think he deserved it. I liked this book so much I read in three times already. It is exceptional how Mandy M Roth writes these characters, she makes them feel like family, and you find yourself crying, laughing and hurting with them. Act of Surrender is no different. If you have read the books before this and the ones in Immortal Ops, it will be easy to understand, but it can be read alone and still draw you in and make you go in search of the ones that came before Act of Surrender. Hagan volunteers to dig around for more information on a very talented computer hacker, it is thought she might be involved with The Corporation, the ones who kidnapped him and tortured him for a long time. What he finds is definitely not what he expected, and he also didn’t expect the feelings that surfaced while he was gaining her trust. Laney Steele has lived her life off the radar ever since her parents abandoned her. They had been her adopted parents and they couldn’t deal with her knack for getting into trouble. She was convinced there were other beings that lived among the humans, and she was convinced there was some kind of government cover up to keep it from becoming public. She spent her time looking for information she could use, and expose on her blog. Little did she know that her digging got the attention of someone alright, and that someone was out to kill her. What was supposed to be a coffee date turns into a harrowing escape for their lives. Can James and Laney survive and how will Laney handle the fact he is one of the other beings? Can they get through it all?

I am loving this series……………. In the first book of the PSI-OPS Act of Mercy, we met James Hagen, abducted, tortured and experimented on for a year by the Corporation. Since that time he has been rescued and is not in a good place. During his time back at work, he “online meets” Lanie a super hacker that is called “Goth Girl” who is trying to prove that “we are not alone”….LOL Who knew all hell would break lose when James and Lanie or Goth Girl and Lab lupus decide to meet. I loved this book, it was funny, serious, sexy and I want more of Gus and Bill!!! It’s amazing to me how the author pairs the couples together, the dialogue and how it appears that each heroine may have a little something, something in their DNA as well… Get the book, the series is awesome! Received a copy of the book for an honest review…..

I loved this book, I loved James and Laney and meeting Casey for the first time. This book was a total rollercoaster ride. It was action packed almost from the beginning and the mating was hot hot hot. This is one of my favorite PSI/Ops books. James has gone through so much and was recently rescued from the Corporation when he meets Laney online. They really were perfect for each other. I loved reading their story and watching them become mates. Mandy M. Roth has a way with words that captures your attention and holds you engrossed in the story that you can't put the book down till the very last page has been read. I highly recommend this book, this series and this author I know you will love them as much as I do. Be sure to pick up your copy of this book and this series you will be very glad that you did.

Anyone who has followed the ongoing Immortal/PSI Ops saga will recognize James Hagen, the PSI doctor who went off the grid for over a decade following the untimely death of a teammate during a mission. Subsequently, Hagen was captured and removed to a secret facility to be experimented on (Tactical Magic). A year later, he is rescued by his PSI Ops team (Act of Mercy) and brought back into the fold.  In Act of Surrender, a couple of weeks after his rescue, Hagen can be found spending his time chatting online with a "target" while he is trying to heal from all of the damage he sustained in captivity. The target, GothGirl, is an off-the-charts hacker who the Corporation has taken an avid interest in. PSI wants to know why. I found the characters in this story to be interesting and engaging. Hagen is one of those guys you just want to win, not just because of what he has been through but because he is a great guy. Contrary to many shifter tales, he isn't an over-the-top, possessive alpha male. His dominance is more subtle, only really coming to the fore while in his shifted state. The heroine Lanny (aka- GothGirl) shines in her believable naïveté despite being a tough female who has grown up on the streets.  Neither hero nor heroine is upstaged by any of the supporting characters, who are forces to be reckoned with themselves. The story itself is easy to get caught-up in, particularly if you are vested in the series. Unfortunately, I was completely disappointed in the ending. I paged back and forth several times thinking I had missed something. I hadn't. The story came to an abrupt, almost forced, stop without any warning. I, personally, would have preferred an epilogue or even a cliffhanger to this. Sadly, I now feel unfulfilled and unsure of what to expect in the next installment of the PSI series. I would give this book a solid 3.9. Would I recommend it? Yes, definitely if you are already a series or author fan. Despite the weak ending the story is still important to the series. If the reader is new, then they should consider the story as a small taste of what is a great series overall and invest in the first installments of the Immortal/PSI Ops universe.

I received an ARC from the author for an honest review In the first book of the PSI-OPS Act of Mercy, we met James Hagen, abducted, tortured and experimented on for a year by the Corporation. He has been rescued, however is in very bad shape. His wolf shifter super healing processes have been compromised by the experiments. Back at work his assignment is investigation and making contact with a super hacker, known as Goth Girl, however Lanie pulls at Hagen in a way he hasn't felt in literally a century. Their first date and contact beyond an on line relationship is a real nightmare, with vicious monstersns created by his former tormentor attempting to kill Lanie. Hagen protects her and has some additional revelations for himself and Lanie. Lanie, self professed hactivist, is brilliant, naive and innocent but totally open to the unbelievable. Her reaction to Hagen and his team of boy-men-shifters (boys by mental maturity standards) is remarkable. She doesn't recognize the connection between herself and Hagen, although she is drawn to him. He does--fighting his wolf and his desires. He is constantly amazed at her reactions. As is the reader. She has spent her life on the street helping others. Is it time for Lanie to have something for herself? Will Hagen trust the changes in him to keep her safe if he gives in? All good questions answered in fierce battles, hysterical antics by his team and surprises for all. Action packed with never a dull moment cover to cover. The end of the books temps us for the next series, Immortal Outcasts, Broken Communication. Which will be out in the boxed set of Taming the Alpha on Dec. 9th.
