Serengeti Shifters, Book 4
Zoe King is itching to get out of Three Rocks. Sure, the pride is more progressive with her brother in charge. She’s just got a bad case of wanderlust…and an even worse case of the hots for Tyler Minor.
The pride’s mechanic sets her senses on fire one second, then shuts down and walks away the next. Before she hits the road for good, this lioness decides it’s time to bring their cat-and-mouse game to a satisfying end.
Twenty years ago, Tyler’s father walked out and left him with a mountain of responsibility. Now that his younger siblings are settled, the last thing he wants or needs is another obligation. Which is exactly what he’ll get if he screws around with the Alpha’s sister.
When Zoe offers—more like demands—a no-strings affair, temptation wins and he finds his hands in places they shouldn’t be, and his thoughts straying to words like his. But Zoe’s got her own ideas about possessive, chest-banging males. And they don’t include white picket fences…or letting Tyler keep her out of the danger zone when an outside threat to the pride’s secrecy becomes all too real.
Vivi Andrews has created a world filled with sensuous shifters and hidden dangers with this, the fourth book in her Serengeti Shifters series. There is passion and desire, and well-crafted characters. This is most definitely Zoe and Ty’s story, one that has been eagerly awaited. I can honestly say it was worth the wait.
Wanderlust has its clutches on Zoe King. As the Alpha’s sister, she needs to get out of Three Rocks, and soon. But before she goes, she has one last itch to scratch, and that itch has a name: Tyler Minor. The pride’s mechanic confuses her, one minute he's looking at her with hot desire, the next he's turning away from her and walking away.
Tyler has spent twenty years taking care of his responsibilities after his father abandoned his family and left Tyler in charge of his siblings. Now they are all grown, and Ty isn’t ready to take on a new responsibility in Zoe. But Zoe is persistent, and finally wears Ty down with her promise of a brief ‘no-strings’ affair that isn’t supposed to lead to thoughts of ‘mine’ or ‘forever’. But when the pride is threatened, can Zoe and Ty work together to save them all? And will Zoe stay with Ty once the danger is past, or give in to her wanderlust?
Zoe King is determined and independent, with a smart and sassy personality. She knows exactly what she wants, and that is Tyler Minor, with no strings to tie her in Three Rocks. She has decided she will have him before she leaves for greener pastures, and sets the wheels in motion. But she also wants to be taken seriously, by her brother and by Ty as well. She knows she is more than just a pretty face, and needs to prove it, to everyone concerned. I liked watching Zoe slowly discover that love doesn’t have to be a collar and leash.
Tyler ‘Ty’ Minor has been responsible most of his life. He is strong and sexy, but he wants a bit of freedom, after being responsible for his siblings since his father left them. He finally sees light at the end of the tunnel, and is determined to avoid any entanglements, especially one named Zoe. I enjoyed watching Ty avoid temptation, and how hot it got when he finally gives in.
This has something for everyone: shifters, screaming hot sex, danger and suspense, and one very well deserved happy ever after for two people who didn’t know they wanted one. I highly recommend this book, but you might want to read the rest of the series first.
