Review: Serengeti Heat (Serengeti Shifters #1) by Vivi Andrews

Synopsis (via Goodreads):
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 honestly love Vivi Andrews' style of writing.  It's very light and readable and I never felt bogged down by it.  She effortlessly brought Ava to life for me and made me feel how hard she's trying to accept her place in the Pride without allowing the crushing realization that she'll always be the runt of the Pride destroy her.

From Ava's first run-in with Landon in the bar to their sizzling, door-breaking coming together, the two of them clicked for me.  Landon's more focused on what he needs to do for his new pride than choosing a mate.  Ava's sure she's exactly the opposite of what he needs as a partner.  He's trying to do the right thing, she's trying to rebel for the first time in her life.

I don't know, they just worked and worked well.

Yes, I'll definitely be reading a lot more by Vivi Andrews.
