I'm so bad... I promised I'd get this post up for the author on the twelfth. I just finished the book... at nearly five a.m. Aren't I bad?

To, start, I'm not big on what I call "lah" moments. You know, the moments in movies where a couple are so sickeningly sweet, ooey gooey in love, and they're all, "I love you," and, "No, I love you more," and everyone else in the room wants to gag. Okay, maybe that's my perception, but that's pretty much how this book starts, picking up where the first book le

This book was excellent. We start right where we left off with Element Part 1. I was hooked right away, just like part one. Things really get interesting in this part. Wow, it was great.

I would not know what I would do if I had what happens to Natalie happen to me, lol, I sure would not mind a Ryan of my own! He is almost too good to be true, lol.
I won’t spoil anything for you, don’t worry, lol.

I Will say that its written extremely well, just like the other one, and sucks you into the story. I

First of I would like to thank the author for allowing me to read her book. I recived this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book started were the last one left off and finally I felt like I got some questions answered.
In the book C.M. made a referance to X-Men and I truly believe that is a great referance. This book has all the "elements" that anyone could love. It is a paranormal action packed love story. Natalie is a strong determaned girl who is completely freaked out by her powers

I started this book to know how Ryan would react to his little discovery, but ended up finding so much more! (Which I thought I wouldn't). There are so many things that become crystal clear on this 2nd part, like why Ryan played such an important role on the first book. Also, even though the final scenes seemed rushed, they were quite interesting.

I had the opportunity to Beta read this for the author.

Part 2 starts almost immediately where part 1 leaves off. Natalie and Ryan are trying to come to terms with Natalie's ability and the trigger....
We find out why and how it came about that Natalie has these abilities in the first place and we get to experience how she grows, she starts out as a scared young girl who slowly accepts that this ability can mean so much more.

Her use of pronounsSigh

The story is pretty good. but it reads like a comic book. If the author is interested in developing her craft she need to get a handle on her use of pronouns. "Me" is never used as a subject and "I" is never used as an object. Also the author needs to get control of verbs. The past tense of "sink" is " sank" not " sunk". To use "sunk" you need a helping verb with it like had, has, and have . The same goes for the words drink, and stink

Good storyline...but...

Storyline was promising, but I felt a little under sold and flat at the end. Parts of the story were reexplained /repeated and it made scenes feel over worked and not from a viewpoint of clarity.

Element Part 1 was the story of Natalie and Ryan, freshmen in college. They were attracted to each other from the first time they saw each other in class and eventually got together. Natalie and Ryan were working as interns at a local company where Natalie had agreed to try out some vitamins. The vitamins started causing strange reactions that you would need to read about to understand what I'm talking about.

Element Part 2 picks up right where the first one left off, which I was happy about. Cl

I received this book as an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review and can I start by saying how glad I am that I did! I read the first book in a single night and the second the following day.

Part two was written much better in my opinion than the first ( though I enjoyed both)
I loved how the author chose to expand on some of the other characters by giving them their own POV's.

I feel like the whole concept was original and a great idea.
I won't lie a couple of parts bored me but on

I thought this was a good young adult story. I liked this book much better than Part One. I thought that the main character was naive, but it didn't take away from the overall story. Yet again the author was overly repetitious when writing about Tony (the ex-boyfriend) saying to himself that "he really needed to talk to Natalie". I thought that the writer could have delved deeper into the emotions that he was feeling, guilt, remorseful and desperation, rather than repeating that "he really neede ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Part 1 left me with questions (not to mention the cliffhanger!!) so I had to read Part 2 in order to see if I was right in my theories (and because of the cliffhanger!). I really enjoyed getting the POV from other characters that we didn't have in Part 1 (aside from Ryan's quick POV). I wasn't a fan of why the antagonist wanted Natalie as it kind of read like an after school program more than anything else. I also was not sold on Tony's motives. I understand a person ...more

I bought this following the cliff hanger at the end of the last one to satisfy my curiosity.
I actually preferred this in some ways to the first one because at least we get some answers.
If I'm being honest though it was all a little too corny for me. When I think of fictional heroines I think sexy, sassy women who have a genuine purpose not women who change into the four elements and act like a human watering can. It reminded me of being a child where you love guys in capes and external underwea

We left Natalie in a cliffhanger, realizing she can turn into all four elements (this kind of reminded me of Avatar: The Last Airbender, TV show). Now Ryan knows that she is Element and to be quite honest is a smidge freaked out, but who wouldn’t be? Now that Ryan knows the two need to keep a secret from everyone else such as Lise. While Natalie is trying to figure out what is up with her and keep secrets from her roommate. We also get to see the pesky ex again and learn more about their story t ...more

I love C.M. Doporto's writing! She keeps you guessing all throughout the book. I won't spoil the book for anyone, but know that this book is amazing!! If you liked Part 1, you are going to love Part 2!

Natalie and Ryan are two of my most favorite characters ever!! They are always so interesting to read about and their relationship is beautiful!! I seriously believe they are meant to be together forever! Element Part 1 was fantastic and I think Part 2 is just as amazing and maybe even better! Thi

I know I am kind of repeating my review from part one, but I really feel the same way. The characters were great, likable, easy to relate to, and easily understood. Natalie and Ryan are still a wonderful couple and I love that they are sticking to one another through everything-including the many difficulties they face as a couple. I still feel that part one and part two should have been combined into one complete book. As part two ended, the story could be left alone or another book could follo ...more

Oh my gravy. I thought book 1 was incredible. Now I got a chance to read book 2 and I devoured it!!! It was well worth the wait for the author to perfect her story.

Natalie and Ryan are learning to deal with her issue of becoming "Element". Twists and turns, lies and deceit, the return of an ex, all these things Natalie and Ryan must deal with to figure out what she is and how to control her powers.

Very well written, great flow, continuance was perfect. Everything about this book drew me in fr

Well I have to say that this book is equal to the previous book and my complaints are basically the same. The two stories should have been combined into one book. There were enough characters and bad guys without adding Dr V. The characters are not well developed and there is little to no continuity in their conversations and actions. The whole thing with Russ came out of left field and you have no idea how or why, same with Tony & his dad. There are too many conflicts to make the story flow. Ag ...more

An amazing read that continues from part one. Natalie and Ryan run into issues that will blow your mind away as you are reading. It has action with romance, since it continues from book 1, both book are a must read. Both are page turner, will have you begging for more. Element is a book of wonders of romance and how love conquers all no matter what. Just love this series.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

I was given this book by the author for my honest review

I really enjoyed this book and the way that Natalie was the elements of the earth it put a whole different twist to the story. I liked the fact that it too for a guy to set everything in motion and the fact that no matter what she looked like he accepted her for what she was no matter what. This was a great story about no matter how much you love someone you can never love them enough and love is the real deal no matter the age.

I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review.

As with Element Part 1, I enjoyed the storyline and the interactions between Natalie and Ryan. However, part 2 added a number of new characters (good) and gave them each their own point of view section. Switching characters too often got a little confusing in my head.
