Hunter

Title: Hunter
Author: Lynn Hagen
Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand
ISBN: 1610346351
Genre: {M/M/M}, Paranormal, Series
Rating:  4 Nymphs
Literary Nymph Reviewer: Critter Nymph 

Hunter is thrilled with all the business he’s getting from the rebuilding Zeus is having done.  He’s even more thrilled by the fact that his interaction with Zeus’s soldiers introduces him to not one, but two mates.  Now he just has to overcome the littlest one’s insecurities, while making sure both his mates stay safe. 

Hunter is the fifth book in the Zeus’s Pack series and the first that is not about one of the soldiers.  While a pack member, Hunter is not a member of the inner circle. Instead he owns the hardware store supplying the needed items for the rebuilding of the pack’s house.  He’s thrilled when he finds his mates but knows the journey ahead of him will be a tough one.  Quinn is one of the construction workers on the site; he is also human and has no idea there is a paranormal world surrounding him.  Tristan is a shifter, running from an extremely abusive ex.  Being on the small side, he becomes afraid when encountering the bigger shifters.   

As with all the characters in this series, when the three mates first meet, there is an instant connection.  That does not mean that their road to happily ever after will be an easy one, though.  Tristan comes with a messy load of issues and the author does not steer away from the problems encountered by an abuse victim.  The fact that both Quinn and Hunter realize that there is something wrong and are willing to wait for Tristan to learn to trust them was something that I found very endearing.  Just as the problems Tristan faces come across believably, so does the hurt that Quinn feels when he realizes that the other two men are his mates and they have yet to tell him.   

Of course the men, as well as the rest of the pack, must deal with the problems they encounter from outside forces, but there are still many lighthearted moments that will leave you laughing.  I could not help but laugh out loud, not only at Tristan’s fashion style, but also the results of his first visit to bingo night.   

Once again the author has brought the readers a fun filled story that is sure to find its way to many keeper shelves.
