Book Review: Serengeti Heat: A Sexy shifter story by Vivi Andrews




Title:  Serengeti Heat:  A Sexy shifter story
Series:  Serengeti Shifters#1
Author: Vivi Andrews
Genre: Short Story
Publication date:  23 June 2009



Goodreads blurb:
Ava Minor is done being the good girl. As the smallest and weakest in a pride of shape-shifting lions where size and strength rule, she’s never had any choice but to toe the line. Now, with sexy, nomadic alpha Landon King winning control of the pride, she grabs her one chance to let her inner feline out to play.
Landon would rather focus on reforming the antiquated traditions of his new pride than taking a mate…until the rebellious Ava crosses his path. All his noble intentions go up in flames, incinerated by the heat she exudes—especially when he realizes she’s in heat.
Ava, knowing she isn’t mate material, is determined to revel in one wild night before she’s sent back to her place in the pride pecking order.
Except Landon has no intention of letting his daring, seductive lioness go…
Warning: This book contains sizzling heat, adult language, no-holds-barred cat fights, and hot shifter lovin’ with an alpha male who takes inspired leadership all the way to the bedroom.

My thoughts:
I absolutely loved this little novella.  I have a huge soft spot for the underdog and Ava fits that bill perfectly.  She is the runt of the litter and everyone takes every opportunity to remind her of that fact.  She then decides that she will have to find a human lover as no-one else will come near her.  Unfortunately the Alpha of her pack, Landon, is also in the sleazy bar Ava chooses and soon she is drawing on all her courage to have just one night with the alpha before he takes a mate. And what a night it turns out to be!

This is the first book that I have read by Vivi Andrews and she has gained a new fan.  I loved her easy and relaxed writing style and I will definitely continue with this series. 


  1. Good review. It looks like a fun quick read.

  2. Whoa! All it took was look at the cover to know this was going to be sizzling. Your review just confirms! Shape-shifting lions are a new one on me....


Thank you for saying hello.
