Content Notes: Spicy
Gioia Clementine has arrived at a shifter’s resort/camp believing it is her last hope to stop the isolation that her son has been quickly placing himself in. With her mate and the father of her son dead, Gioia has come hoping that the resort’s owner can find a way to break through the wall her son has raised. But when she learns just how he wants to do it, Gioia is unsure she wants to bring in a playboy.
Soren Snow is an internationally renowned musician and a playboy by choice. He is also a polar bear shifter. When Soren receives a call from his brother about a troubled boy he is working with who idolizes him, Soren can’t say no to coming to the isolated resort in Northern Ontario, even if the great outdoors is definitely not his thing. Imagine his surprise at his shifter’s self instant reaction to the boy’s mother. Mating is the last thing on Soren’s to do list.
Gioia is surprised by the real man that Soren is and how he gives so much to her son. She would even give a second chance to a playboy for the smiles he brings out of her son. As the days go by, Gioia finds herself drawn more and more to Soren with an intense attraction. Just as a break through comes in both her son’s acceptance of his past and the passion that has flamed between Gioia and Soren – a new arrival to the resort blows everything up. When the smoke clears will Gioia and Soren have a clear chance to achieve the future that awaits them? And will her son be able to accept the relationship between his idol and his mother?
A desperate mother and a playboy musician join to help a troubled boy with the result being a true love that will encompass all three of them. Gioia and Soren find that love in Predator’s Serenade. I would have never guessed that Soren would drop everything and return to the fishing camp/resort in the great outdoors. And yet he instantly stepped up once he met Gioia and her son. Gioia wasn’t really looking for a new relationship when she arrived at the fishing camp/resort but once she met Soren passion was immediate. I watched as Soren quickly grew from being a playboy without a care into a man who wanted the responsibility of having a mate and her son. When the surprise person came in to their relationship, I thought that would be the worse hurdle they would have to overcome but I was wrong. The worse threat was different entirely. I loved when Soren gave Gioia her greatest joy and how he did it. What a way to proclaim your love. Predator’s Serenade combines passion with suspense with twists of humor and a young boy’s trust.
