Avanti has just met his mates, but since he’s not ready for one, let alone two, he runs.  Jesse can’t believe his luck.  Not only does he have one mate, he has two.  Now he has to figure out what to do about them.  Craig doesn’t know why he’s so drawn to the two wolves, but he does know he wants them now! 

I liked this newest addition to the Zeus’s Pack series.  The main characters, Avanti, Jesse, and Craig are great together.  Each of the men have issues that they must overcome before they can begin the relationship that seems to be forming between them.  The sexual chemistry between the three is hot and the way Craig’s personality changes, once the men get into the bedroom was hilarious.  I could not believe some of the things that came out of his mouth.  There is also a lot of tension woven into the story, not just between the men, but also in the form of interference from the outside world.  With the men and the pack trying to protect the newly mated threesome from Craig’s crazy uncle, and as the unrest within the pack becomes more pronounced, the action in Avanti is sure to keep the reader entertained. 

As much as I liked Avanti, I did have one issue.  Early in the story, as each man is being introduced to the reader and each other, their reasons for not being in a relationship, or even the willingness to start one, was clearly stated.  Yet, it seemed as if the three men went from running away to jumping into bed in the blink of an eye.  In fact, the change was so fast, I thought I must have missed something and flipped back to re-read several pages to double check.  Once I overlooked that part, the story, for me, began to flow nicely.   All in all, Avanti was still a satisfying read.
