I really enjoyed this book all the way till the end! The end left me hanging though! I can't wait till the next installment comes out, I hope it is pretty soon because I can't stand to think about what happened to my Adrian!

Ria lives in a world where everyone 'normal' has an element of Fire,Water,Earth, and Air. Their God has gifted every human on the planet with an element and the only thing he asked was for each element to reproduce with a person of the same element and to never mix. Well guess what, they went against his request and mixed the elements in which there were consequences.

Ria's is a regular college student and her element is Fire. Everything starts to change when she meets a guy named Micheal through her best friend Puala. Micheal's element is water and because she is forbidden by her family to marry outside of her element, Ria knows that she would never marry Micheal so she decides dating him wouldn't hurt anybody. Ria hears about a disease carrier by the name of Adrian(Love that name) that also attends the school, Ria does not feel she or anyone is safe around this guy because he is dangerous. But her best friend starts dating him and she slowly starts feeling something for him and figures out that Adrian is hiding something that can change the view of the magic disease carriers.

I couldn't put this book down! I LOVED Ria's attitude, everything that came out of her mouth was hilarious and Adrian, I had mixed feeling with him in the beginning of the book he was such a freakin JERK! I could not believe him sometimes but everything started to make since at the end of the book and I just LOVE him lol. I recommend this book to anyone because I enjoyed every surprising turn in this book, it really left me panting for more!

SPOILER ALERT. This is a very talented author that I could have liked but she threw in really unnecessary cursing,stupid drinking and stupid sexual behavior that really kind of made me end up hating the story. Ria lives in a world of magic where magic is the core of the world she lives in. It is as common as all of the elements and had she focused on that the story would have been fine. However, instead you have Ria getting drunk at a party,taking a pill that was meant for her friend allegedly to protect the friend and having sex with her boyfriend without any memory of it the next day. The impression you are given at the beginning was that Ria wanted to wait to have sex. However, after she has sex with her boyfriend and doesn't remember any of it, she blames the boy who gave her the pill that made her forget and she seems to not be too troubled about the fact that she had sex with her boyfriend and didn't remember it. Anyone with any sort of moral code or sense of right and wrong would have been devastated that her first experience with sex was some sort of date rape. Her boyfriend should have been able to tell that she was not able to give consent. Then, she starts hanging out with her allegedly best friends boyfriend who she has hated in the past but now because of her alleged magic disease needs to be around him and after drinking some vodka ends up having sex with him but not once, twice. But she always has an excuse for her stupid choices and stupid behavior in general. The Impression you get is that no one is accountable for anything and stuff just happens. Heck they don't even seem to associate their stupid drinking with the really stupid destructive choices made in the story. Not recommended to anyone with any common sense. Of course if you want to read about a bunch of magical asinine fools then you will love this one.

I loved this book!

Such a refreshing concept for a paranormal series to deal with elements. Took me a couple of chapters to get that possessing an elemental power wasn't a secretive thing like in most books but that the entire population knew about people wielding elements.
The characters are well written and have depth and mystery to them. The developing relationships that the main character Ria has are gripping and seem real. She is torn between the gentle and sweet Michael and the infamous Adrian, carrier of the Magic Disease. But who does Ria have more in common with?
Set in an American College it has an adult edge to it but isn't graphic.
I've read alot of paranormal fiction of all different types and this was the perfect blend for me. Action, romance and magic.
I was disappointed it ended

I had a very bizarre experience reading this book because there is so much that i didn't like but strangely i still really enjoyed the book overall. Dangerous certainly isn't perfect. There are quite a lot of spelling and grammar mistakes, not to mention the problems I had with the characters, but for some reason I still liked it.

One of my biggest problems with this book was the main character. She wasn't particularly well developed and it almost seemed like she was two different people as her personality was all over the place. Half the time she seemed thoughtful, kind-hearted and caring whilst at other times she was the exact opposite; shallow, spoiled, mean and quite frankly a bitch. I think if these different aspects of her personality had been blended better she may have come across as a deep multi-faceted character, instead I just found her unbelievable.

I also truly hated Adrian for a significant part of the book; he comes across as the bad guy for a lot of the book. Not even just misunderstood but truly horrible. He does slightly redeem himself later in the book but he isn't much of a hero. Michael however I did like. He comes across as the perfect romantic interest, he seems like a nice guy and he gives Ria a chance to show some of the more likeable parts of her personality; the girl who is willing to put aside her prejudices for someone she cares about. This book also contains one of my pet peeves, something that usually makes me hate a book.

The best part of this book was probably the premise and the world it is set in; a world almost exactly the same as the one we live in only everyone has elemental magic. I also found the magic disease aspect of the book interesting.
