Ahhh Shifter crack...Yay! I love reading about shifters .... however this was the first time I had read about bear shifters in much detail. Well, guess what? I loved them - especially Ryland!
Due to being betrayed in the past, Ryland had basically resigned himself to being single. He had thrown himself into creating a peaceful lodge and island resort for Shifters to come, relax and find support. He even mentored Shifter teens who were struggling with their identity. He was pleased with the results but usually grouchy, unsmiling and very wary of humans...especially females. His peace and tranquility was quickly shattered when his brother (the rockstar and HUGE womanizer) showed up with a hit man hot on his trail. The two brothers had diametrically opposed lifestyles and having Soren around really put Ryland on edge. No sooner had Soren arrived than the brothers were interrupted by a petite female human in distress and the brothers had to work together to set things right.
Rosanna did a wonderful job of letting us get to know Ryland and his basic personality. She clearly did a ton of research and really worked the whole Grizzly persona into Ryland and his behavior. I was so impressed. I was also really glad that the concern that Soren had for his brother and the feelings that Ryland developed for Lia were all reciprocated. The pacing of the storyline was perfect and I was happily lead along, watching the plot develop. As a Romance, I knew that there would be a happy ending. At one point, I almost felt like we were ready to end the book.Read more ›
Ryland is a yummy grouch most of the book. He just can not fight the pull with Lia! The dynamic with his brother is great!
Lia is sweet but a touch naive and her fear of all things furry was a bit over much. She did bring quite a bit of spunk later in the book.
The story here was good but it had a lot going on, almost too much at times. Resolutions were a bit anticlimactic. I was hoping for a bigger bang.
It took a long tone to get to the steam but once you get there it is yummy! I may never look at honey the same!
This is a great start to the series and I can not wait to see what is next. Gemini island has tons of potential for shifter romances!
Also, it bothered me a bit that there was no justification/explanation of what kind of shapeshifters they were. Why were two brother's different types of bears?
Couldn't anything be added about the shifter culture? There was no mention of packs or anything about shifters outside the island retreat.
"Lia swallowed, praying God would give her the strength to keep her eyes above Ryland's waist. Clearly God was occupied with other things at the moment and not inclined to answer her halfhearted entreaty."
THE SHORT: Highly recommended. Very well-written, sweet, smexy & funny PNR with a bear shifter!! If you like the quirky humour + hot sex in Eve Langlais's PNR books, then you should definitely give PREDATOR'S KISS a go.
THE LONG: Although somewhat wary of reading/reviewing works by those whom I "know" via GR groups, I'm glad that I finally bit the bullet and read a book by Rosanna Leo. PREDATOR'S KISS, the first book in the Gemini Island Shifters series, was an excellent introduction to her writing and storytelling. (And really, how could I resist when the male MC was a bear shifter?)
At just over my personal novella gauge (150pgs), PREDATOR'S KISS hit all the right buttons with its sympathetic main characters, engaging storyline with a few twists and turns, and vanilla but very sexy "love moments". Throw in a nice mix of secondary characters (including one who may star in the next book), a hilariously wise inner bear, and decent-size jar of honey, and PREDATOR'S KISS had the perfect combination for a fast, light-hearted read with more than a few LOL moments. An added bonus? Lia, the heroine, is the author of a best-selling erotic romance. *wink*
If I had any quibbles, then it would be the world-building. It wasn't particularly deep/complex but then again, I suppose that it didn't have to be for this particular story to work. And to offset this, Ms. Leo put a different spin on the fated mates trope and used it for great comedic effect.Read more ›
