Jasper has finally left his pack to join up with his new mate, Zeus.  He knows the transition will be hard but didn’t think it would be this bad.  To top it off, his wolf seems to think the sexy human working at the local deli belongs to him. 

Jasper is the first story in the Brac Pack spin-off, Zeus’s Pack.  Jasper was one of those characters I liked from the beginning.  He comes across a little over the top at times, yet, watch out because when need be, he’s just as tough as the next warrior.  When he moves to Pride Pack Valley, he doesn’t expect to have such a rough time, especially since he will finally be with his mate.  Zeus, however, is nothing like Jasper’s old Alpha and, just because his mate has finally shown up, doesn’t mean the big man is going to change.  There is such a vast difference between these two, it is understandable that they would find a hard time meshing in the beginning.  Not only are their personalities different, but the fact that their wolves are two different species with their own set of rules means both men have even more compromises to make.  Then the author throws in a third mate that sends both wolves spinning. 

Toby is not only human but also knows nothing of the paranormal world that surrounds him.  I’m glad that the author chose to settle things between Zeus and Jasper before introducing Toby into the relationship because Toby comes with serious trouble on his tail, meaning Jasper and Zeus will have their hands full.   

Jasper was a great start for this series and I can’t wait to be introduced to the rest of Zeus’s Pack over the next few weeks.
