He’s a rock star shifter on a mission of mercy, she's a mother who will do anything for her child. Can a famed playboy find love with a soccer mom? You’ll be singing the praises of Rosanna Leo’s passionate, new romance, Predator’s Serenade, Book 2 of the Gemini Island Shifters series.

There are three things that make bear shifter Soren Snow’s skin crawl: mothers, their children, and the great outdoors. Soren is a famed musician and playboy, and he would rather spend his days pressing the flesh with the women in his fan club than developing meaningful relationships. When his brother calls in a favor, forcing Soren to revisit the Ursa Fishing Lodge in Northern Ontario, he couldn’t be more displeased. However, he owes his brother big time.

Gioia Clementine would rather not meet Soren, her drummer son’s rock idol. But when tragedy strikes her home, it seems the only one the boy might respond to is Soren. Gioia begrudgingly agrees to let her son meet him, hoping the rock star won’t turn her tween into a musical misogynist.

When Gioia and Soren meet, the sexual chemistry threatens to set the Ontario woodland ablaze. Can these two opposites find a common ground? And can they manage to resolve their unwanted feelings, even when a mysterious stranger arrives at the lodge, threatening everything?

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 arouses and surprises him, she is his mate.
Gioia had a mate, he died leaving her and her son all alone. Because they didn’t mate properly Gioia cannot shift she is still human.  Her son is everything to her but she cannot help him with shifting.  Soren she knows is not good for her but he is good for her son.
She grows closer and closer to Soren.  When things look like the happily ever after is going to happen the past comes back to haunt Gioia, can Soren find it in himself to save the family he finally has grown to love.
Gioia’s strong loving nature really made me love her.  She is a mom who loves her son with all her heart. As a mom myself I could really relate to that part of her. 
Soren learns to grow and let us see his loving sweet side. I really liked these characters together. They play off each other perfectly.
This is one of those books that really surprised me in a good way.  Soren got redeemed for me, I thought he was just a shallow playboy but he is a loving, possessive, sweet man that I just loved.  I hope there are many more books in this series.  I know I will be waiting to read them, find out which shifter finds love, and with who.
