#BookReview – “Serengeti Lightning” by Vivi Andrews


Mara Leonard is through hitting the snooze button on her biological clock. The Three Rocks Pride schoolteacher is ready to get serious about starting a family, and she needs a serious man to make that happen.
Regrettably, that means crossing less-than-serious Michael Minor off her list of potential mates. Michael is impulsive and passionate, but his spontaneity leaks into shapeshifting whenever his emotions run high—a tendency he should have outgrown long ago. As a sex buddy, he’s delicious. Daddy material? Disqualified.
Michael is blindsided by Mara’s rejection. Nine years separate them, and his genetic malady means no one in the pride treats him as an adult. But if she thinks he’ll simply slink away to lick his wounds while she steps into the arms of another man, she has seriously underestimated him.
The tricky part will be convincing his over-analytical lover that he’s more than a disposable sex toy. That real bravery means tearing up her damn checklist and following her heart. And doing it without letting their explosive sexual chemistry expose the Pride’s secrets to the outside world.


In the third Serengeti Shifters novella (published through Samhain Press), prim schoolteacher and dominant lioness Mara Leonard wants to find a loyal, loving mate and have some cubs. Unfortunately, the gorgeous lion shifter she’s been seeing is a flirt and ten years younger than she is.
Michael Minor is in love with Mara and thinks she would be the perfect mate, so he’s completely blindsided when she breaks up with him. He’s the only adult lion in the Three Rock Pride that cannot control his inner cat, meaning he sometimes loses control and shifts into his cat form without notice. Because of that, everyone treats him like a cub, even though he’s responsible, honest, and mature in every other way. At the threat of losing Mara, he finally decides to prove both to Mara and to the pride that he’s not the child everyone believes him to be.
Both Mara and Michael are such heartfelt characters, and their pain and heartache makes you want to grab a tissue. They both feel so strongly about what they want out of life and are both determined to get it no matter what. I loved seeing them push past their problems and Mara’s misconceptions to find what they’ve always wanted in each other.
Landon, Ava, and Zoe are great in their secondary roles in trying to help out the H/h.
The writing is tight and good. I look forward to reading more in the series
