Meet Soren playboy, famous cocky big shot that screw supermodels and hate children and their mothers. This outdoors nature hater is called home by his brother to the outdoorsy Ursa Fishing Lodge in Northern Ontario to mentor a kid. To say Soren is displeased about this horrid favor would be to down play it, but he don’t have a choice since he owes his brother BIG TIME.

Gioia Clementine is a down to earth woman that has a son Gunner, he is the world to her. She is not into playboys and do not loo

We met Soren in Predators Kiss where he was a little naughty causing trouble for his brother Ryland and I found it so funny that it’s Ryland’s turn to laugh his ass off at Soren in this book.
Once again Rosanna hits us with humour, love, suspense and a whole lot more hot sexy scenes. And don’t forget about those twist and turns and I have to say I ended up teary eyed at the end as it was a beautiful ending for Gioia, Soren and Gunnar.

The second book in the Gemini Shifters is a very entertaining read full of suspense, action, emotional angst, wonderful characters romance and red hot sex.

Soren returns to the shifter island as a favor to help out a young shifter with severe emotional problems, and he’s not real happy about it. He doesn’t have anything in common with moms and little people. Gioia has run out of options and hopes that Ryland’s mentoring program on the island can help her son. She’s not too happy about Ryland call

Again, where are those half stars when we need them? This book is a delightfully sexy 4.5 stars. I`m now a diehard member of the Soren Snow fan club. I developed a strong infatuation with the playboy polar bear shifter in the first book. In his own book I fell in love with him!

Sarcastic, immature, rock star meets widowed mom with troubled son. And Boom! Ms. Leo`s crackling sharp dialog and steamy sex scenes propel this story along until you feel you can`t turn the pages fast enough. The plot ha

Amazingly I think I like this book even better than the first in the series.

Soren is amazingly juvenile in his inability to deal with a mature mom and her teenage kid. That being said, he still did a solid job of bonding with the boy even through his slightly unconventional methods.

Ms. Leo always creates approachable main characters and Gioia is no exception. She is flawed, prone to upset when dealing with her child, doesn't always have the answers and doesn't have a perfect body. Basically, she

Predator's Serenade, the second book of Rosanna Leo's awesome bear shifters at the Ursa Fishing Lodge on Gemini Island, made me grin a lot and was a wonderfully detailed story with true heart and perfect heat. I loved sexy brother bear musician Soren coming face to face with his inner bear he'd been neglecting and then being undone at the turn of events in his life. I chuckled at his reactions and loved all the family support in this book. I adored seeing those I met in book one again. And Gioia ...more
I thought I'd tolerate Soren at best in this novel because he got on my nerves in his brother's story. He was immature, irresponsible, and a manwhore. Not a good look. Meeting Gioia and Gunnar was really good for him. I think I ended up loving him more than Ryland.

I was a expecting a twist ending but like in Ryland's story, it did nothing for me. It wasnt very effective to me and tried to force the story to move along.

I had tears in my eyes at the end of this book. It was beautifully written. Soren found love and family and finally has been tamed by a struggling mom and her son, Gunnar. Seeing Soren change from a playboy to a man in love was something. I enjoyed reading his story and glad Paul (Gioia's ex husband) found a girl that might turn out to be his mate. I really hope so. Great book.

An absolutely wonderful story and a perfect sequel to Leo's Predator's Kiss. After reading the first book it was hard to see how the notorious playboy Soren would fall for a woman, but when it happens here it seems perfectly natural. Never once did I doubt the sincerity of his feelings for Gioia, and it's wonderful to see how he takes to her son Gunnar as well, discovering a paternal side to his character that even he never knew existed.

Gioia is like many single mothers - hard working, independe

Disclaimer: I received an ARC copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

We first met Soren Snow in Predator's Kiss, the story of his older brother Ryland and his mate Lia. Soren was the sexy, talented drummer idolized the world over. He hated children and filled his life with superficial women. In Predator's Serenade, Ry asked Soren to return to the Gemini Island shifter resort, to help mentor a troubled tween boy, Gunnar. Despite his dislike of children, Soren bonded with Gunnar th

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Predator's Serenade by Rosanna Leo, the sequel to Predator’s Kiss (Gemini Island Shifters) is where we meet Soren Snow. The hotter younger brother of Ryland Snow. While Ryland is the more conservative and more serious, Soren is the party animal. The one that rather be with his groupies, beautiful woman and live in the moment than get attached and live the boring life he think his brother lives.

PREDATOR’S SERENADE is the second storyline in Rosanna Leo’s Gemini Island Shifters novella series. This instalment focuses on Soren Snow (a polar shifter) and Gioia Clementine, the mother of a young brown bear shifter and the woman who would be Soren’s mate. Although this is the second in a series, it can be read as a stand-alone without too much difficulty. Some of the previous storylines premise is revealed by way of recollection and reminders.

I loved it, simple as that. I am so glad that I got the chance to read this book because otherwise I wouldn’t have looked twice at it based on its cover and that would have been a shame. I tend not to judge books by their cover, but from time to time I do it, I am sure that I am not the only one.

The book is definitely one of a kind, the plot is unique and very well written, the story is complex. I never encountered so much drama, romance, action in one a single book before. The book was very eas

Omg I am still trying to catch my breath from reading this story! Ms. Rosanna Leo has hit it out of the park with Soren's story.

The second journey to Gemini Island series is Predator’s Serenade by Rosanna Leo. This time we get to meet Ryland’s brother Soren. Soren is the play boy rock star of the family. At first Soren comes off as shallow and self absorbed. Never met a woman he didn’t want to love. He runs from being with kids and moms like the plague. When he is called to Gemini Island by Ryland to help a troubled boy Soren is not thrilled but he does come. When he meets Gioia the boy’s mother the reaction he has both ...more

Oh how I love Bear Shifter stories, especially from Rosanna Leo!! Predator's Kiss, Book 1 in the Gemini Island Shifters Series, was where I fell in love with them for the first time and Rosanna did it again with Predator's Serenade. Much to my pleasant surprise, I loved the second book in the series as much or even a bit more. I say to my pleasant surprise because we met Soren - the hero in Book 2 - in Book 1 and I really did not like him. When I read that Rosanna had him as the hero for the sec

This book was so good and thanks to Soren I have a whole new appreciation for marshmallows!

It was interesting what was happening to her and of course Soren's HEA didn't come easy for him and after all he said about mates and relationships in the past it kinda served him right!

Oooohhh bad boy Soren takes a nose dive as he discovers what is feels like to fall in love and meet his mate. I literally laughed out loud when I read his reaction!!! The poor playboy didn't handle it so well. Mousy romance writer Gioia takes Soren through a storm, more like a monsoon of reactions as she turns his world upside down. Soren is left to figure out how to come to terms with the changes in his live as he discovers what family really means.

Rosanna Leo writes fun, sexy, over-the-top and out-of-this-world alpha males. Or I guess that should be, kinda of this world, kinda something special. ;) This is the second in her Gemini Island series, and I really, really liked it. Soren's transformation from playboy to committed mate is hilarious, as his inner bear takes over for the first time in his life. Gioia is an awesome heroine, fiesty and strong and awkward and cute and...I could go on forever. I loved her.

Predator's Serenade is Rosanna Leo's second book in her Gemini Island Shifters series. Each book is a standalone story but characters from this book are introduced in the first book, Predator's Kiss. It isn't necessary to read Predator's Kiss to fully appreciate Predator's Serenade but I do recommend Predator's Kiss. Both are very good books.

Soren Snow is a womanizing rock star who as a favor to his brother, returns to Gemini Island to help a troubled tween. Gioia brings her troubled son Gunner
