#BookReview – “Serengeti Storm” by Vivi Andrews


Shana Delray is hissing mad. The pride's Alpha has chosen a mate-and it's not her. Bred to be his consort, she's not going to let some runt of the litter take her destined place-no matter how much ass she has to kick in the process. Her way back into the pride is Caleb Minor-her former lover, the Alpha's loyal enforcer...and the runt's brother. And if she has to go through Caleb to get what she wants, so be it. She'll do whatever it takes to pry the little usurper out of her way. 
Caleb's familiarity with Shana's manipulative ways serves him well when he's assigned to keep the seething she-cat in line. A nearly impossible task, as he's forced to use his body-in more ways than one-to save her from herself. Now if only he can save his battered heart from the explosive desire that isn't as dormant as he'd thought. 
Caleb's stronger now. Tougher and harder. And, to Shana's fury, he won't be used. The harder she pushes, the more she finds her heart yielding...and suddenly she wonders if she can somehow win back the man she spent a decade trying to destroy... 


In the second Serengeti Shifters novella, lion shifter Shana Delray returns to the Three Rocks Pride territory after several months away. Bred from childhood to be the mate of the alpha of the pride, she doesn’t care about love, only dominance and power. Even though Landon, the alpha, chose another woman, she’s determined to challenge Landon’s mate and take the woman’s place. Then she runs into her ex-lover and the only man she has ever really wanted, and her plans start to unravel.
Caleb Minor is the new alpha’s lieutenant and completely loyal to him. Even though he knows Shana is back to win Landon, Caleb cannot keep from sleeping with her whenever she demands it. After a decade plus of hurt and betrayal, he still secretly cares for Shana but doesn’t trust her.
I liked Caleb for the most part, even though he constantly let Shana manipulate him and break his heart. I don’t understand why Caleb would even want Shana since she was always so cruel to his younger sister, whom he was very protective of. That just didn’t make sense to me.
I couldn’t connect with Shana at all, but I definitely felt sorry for her, given the way her abusive mother had controlled her and brawl beat her for so many years.
Landon and Ava returned from book one, so it was nice seeing them again. Caleb’s brothers didn’t play a large role in this story, and I found that disappointing.
The story is well written without any typos from what I noticed. Though I liked the overall plot, I wish I could’ve connected better with the heroine.
(I have all four books in this series, but I have older copies when the series was published through Samhain Press.)
3 Stars
