    One thought on “This Same Earth”

    1. Meh.Right away, I felt Giovanni had become a different, less likable character. He basically abandons Beatrice for 5 years because *he* has deemed that an appropriate amount of time for her to get some life experience and grow up so that she'll really be ready to be with him. Why didn't he wait 10-15 years, why just 5? Probably he doesn't want to wait too long or else she wouldn't be in her scrumptious twenties anymore when she turns immortal! And five years doesn't leave her a huge window of ti [...]

    2. This is another one that I didn't review at the time of publication because authors weren't supposed to be on .So, anyway. THIS SAME EARTH! Sophomore book. Holy cow, I was nervous. People were actually waiting to read a book that I wrote. THE PRESSURE! GAH! There are parts I love. Parts I hate. There's groveling (or Giovanni's version of it, which basically amounts to a stoic and reserved apology) and my first (but not last) literary homage to Jason Momoa.*whispers* I'm sorry, ManoAnyway, this i [...]

    3. First read 16th July 2013. First read rating was ★★★★. Re-read 20th May 2015. My opinion has changed ★★★★★.3rd re-read 16th September 2017. Opinion stays the same ★★★★★.Time flies when you are reading a good book. 5 “Vampires and villains, danger and mystery…that is your real world” Stars.The saga of Gio and Beatrce continues. For five years Gio has been leaving Beatrice a plane ticket to Chile. Beatrice is trying to come to terms that what they had is over and [...]

    4. I was so not disappointed with book #2 in this really great paranormal romance series. I am really excited about the continuation of what is becoming a really amazing world the author has created.A Hidden Fire ended with B going off to California and Gio disappearing to who knows where. The prologue begins 5 years later. B has made a new life for herself in California without Gio but is unable to forget him or forgive him for cutting himself off from her life. He’s got a lot of hard work ahead [...]

    5. Book 2 in the Elemental Mysteries series, this book dives right back into the story, getting us straight into the mindset of Beatrice, via a prologue fantastically written in diary-like excerpts. Starting not too long after the ending of the last book - A Hidden Fire – Beatrice is building her own life away from the supernatural world and we get to witness the changes in her as she grows older, more mature, and a lot stronger and more independent - I love grown up Beatrice!!! Most notable is t [...]

    6. My Beatrice and Giovanni:After events in previous book, Giovanni disappeared and left Beatrice to study, live her life and find herself. Now he is back, ready to finally fight for her and with the new adventure on the horizon. What will she chose? To live her "normal" life or to come back to her "supernatural" life?“I am sure of the fire that runs through me. I am sure of the earth I stand on. And I am sure of you.”This sequel has completely different feeling than previous book A Hidden Fire [...]

    7. When A Hidden Fire ended Beatrice was off in California going to college. Gio had 'broke in' to her apartment to leave airline tickets for her, while stealing away a picture of her to take with him. Now 5 years have passed and Beatrice has yet to hear a word from him. Not an email, a phone call, nothing! Every August during those 5 years she would take the airline tickets he would leave for her to go to his house in Chile for rest, and every year she claimed would be the last. Gio wanted her to [...]

    8. 5 stars!Second book in the series- More questions answered, more mysteries solved.It's 6 years later, and Beatrice is now a kick-ass librarian. Understandably hurt that the vampire she loves decides he doesn't want her, she puts everything behind her and tries to live a normal life. Instead of crying and pining after Gio, she lives life to the fullest. I loved reading about this feisty heroine. I loved watching her evolve from a clueless 22 year old girl, to a hard, smartened-up 28 year old. Gio [...]

    9. Ok so maybe the way I feel about this book is my fault. I read the first book A Hidden Fire because it looked interesting and it was a cheap buy on . I really liked the twist on the vampire genre with the addition of the elemental powers. I really liked B - strong female character who knows what she wants. She has had to work hard to get what she wants. Stands up for herself, etc.Then she meets Gio and even by the end of book 1 she is still pretty independent and wants to live life her way. I lo [...]

    10. 3 StarsUbi amo, ibi patria. Where I love, there is my home.As far as sequels go, this one was pretty satisfying, but it didn’t quite hit the same notes as the first did (as is often the case).Straight out of the gate this story went in a direction I didn’t approve of. Through a quick series of journal entries we discover it has been 5 years (5 fricken YEARS!!) since Gio has seen Beatrice. Like myself, Beatrice was devastatingly upset and appropriately fuming over Gio’s absence. She had no [...]

    11. I did not like this one as much as A Hidden Fire. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I was really put off at first by the five year gap in time. Giovanni and Beatrice have to start over in their relationship in this one because of that gap in time. I think what annoyed me the most about this book was the way they went around in circles in the relationship. There was too much repetition and not enough moving forward. I don't mind reading mushy stuff either, but I get tired of it when it's [...]

    12. I had a very difficult time at the beginning of this book. By that, I mean that I wanted to throw my e-reader against the wall and perhaps drop an anvil on top of the hero’s head. And if you read the first book in this series, and if you rooted for B and Gio in any way, shape, or form, you will feel the same way. Halfway through the book, I was still mad. I wasn’t sure I was going to get past it. Eventually… begrudgingly… I did, but I’m still a little resentful about all of the angst.S [...]

    13. Solid 4 StarsA great second installment to this series. Heartbreak, suspense, drama, and erotic intrigue abound in this one. The stakes are getting higher. The clues are plentiful. We meet some great new characters in this one as the plot moves along. Love it. Alot more questions than answers in this one. But so what! I'm loving it.Why I could only give this one 4 stars inspite of all this greatness, is because of one thing Giovanni & Beatrice. Through the entire 1st book and for the majorit [...]

    14. Well, it wasn't too bad.I remember I really liked the last book, that it was funny and engaging and sweet. I can't say the same about this one thoughIt focused too much on the love story (and this wasn't suppose to be a romance novel 100%) and it barely advanced with the plot. Even more, it was pretty boring at times.It's not a bad story if you are looking for sweet, cute, love stuff. If you want more action, well This one is pretty slow in that department .

    15. Better than the first one. The world is becoming more interesting and Giovanni and Beatrice are connecting really well. Their chemistry works.Not going to say much. This is a four book series so there's an ongoing plot and this book just takes us further along. It starts five years after the last book and B has "moved on". She's got a great boyfriend (super sexy Mano) and a job she loves at the Huntington Library. She's bought a house in LA and has made good friends there. And suddenly who shoul [...]

    16. It was heartbreaking to read Beatrice journal when Giovanni left her for five years… And I get that she was angry at him when he showed up. I even felt real bad for her then boyfriend Mano… But I also feel as frustrated as Giovanni when she keeps clinging to Giovanni yet repeating the fact that he left her, ugh… At some point I was screaming for her to “get over it!” Hell, her best friend, Dez, gets it more than she does… and she just learned that vamps exists.Giovanni’s reason for [...]

    17. 3.5 Stars.I enjoy Gio and B and am glad to see them together in this book. I had a few issues and will list below. The Hidden Fire was such a hit with me. The depth of the characters and their backstories -- this one didn't hit it so well -- and in some places, not at all. Plus, I think books in a series should stand on their own. If you read this one and had not read the first one, you would have been lost. And, you probably wouldn't read another book by this author. If I hadn't read the first [...]

    18. 3,5 stars.Ugh. You know, I still like the story, I like the characters (more or less, they often go on my nerves, but not everyone can be as cool as I am), I like that the story is evolving and we get more answers but the romance/sex part is SO frustrating I cannot give this book 4 stars!(view spoiler)[I let it pass in the first book cause, you know sex is not everything, apparently But it gets really frustrating here. Life is short, even if you're a 500 year old vampire, and especially if you'r [...]

    19. I love Gio, but Beatrice is annoying. Gio keeps saying that he loves her bravery and the strength of her soul, but honestly that is such a bunch of bullshit. She is a raging idiot who needs to get her head out of her ass and realize Gio was doing what he thought was best. God she is such a coward! It is infuriating to read her thoughts; she is constantly in denial, and trying to justify it despite all obvious signs against it.

    20. The fact that I loved the first book in Hunter's Hidden Mysteries, A Hidden Fire, was actually the reason that I was hesitant to start This Same Earth. I liked the slowly building relationship between book scholar vampire Giovanni Vecchio and library science intern Beatrice De Novo in the first book and was actually just fine with the hopeful ending, but the the teaser for This Same Earth at the end of that book had the effect of putting me off this one a bit. That said, I ended up really liking [...]

    21. 4.5stars actuallyAfter the adventures, changes and romance that Gio swept into B’s life, 5years of the silent treatment has left her feeling abandoned by and angry with him since she is still very much in love with him. Despite a few false starts B now has a great “normal” life. She has her dream job, a wonderful house of her own, good friends and a man that adores her. When she least expects it Gio walks back into her life, looking and smelling as good as ever. According to Gio’s point [...]

    22. The sequel to A Hidden Fire (Elemental Mysteries) which is This Same Earth (Elemental Mysteries) and I find it one of the more interesting reading experiences in quite sometime. First the fact that are 2 books is almost a misnomer since it really is a continuing story and second I find it amazing that the author manages to take what is basically a love story and inject just enough action and mystery into it to keep you from getting bored with a very slowly evolving love story. Normally a tale su [...]

    23. I wasn't as pleased with this as I was with the first book. Seriously, five years? By the time certain characters FINALLY hook up, it's a bit anticlimactic. Not sure if I'll keep reading the series, kind of lost interest.

    24. Me likes really really likes :)Gio and Beatrice are back! Only problem is, five years have passed and Beatrice hasn’t seen Gio a single time. She’s living in Los Angeles after earning her graduates degree, she has a nice home, a full time job and a hot boyfriend named Mano. After five years of half living her life and half waiting for Gio to come back into her life, she’s finally decided she’s had enough and is ready to just move on. But of course that’s exactly when Gio decides to bre [...]

    25. As seen at choicebookreviewsI ASKED MYSELF A FEW QUESTIONS GOING INTO THIS BOOK:1. CAN I LOVE IT MORE THAN A HIDDEN FIRE?2. CAN MY EXPECTATIONS BE EXCEEDED?3. WILL IT INCREASE MY HUNGER FOR GIO AND B?The answer to all these questions was a resounding YES!!!I absolutely loved, LOVED the second installment in the Elemental Mysteries series! I didn't think it would top the first but it did. No, it exceeded it! This series is shaping up to be an amazing one and I can't get enough!We pick up 5 years [...]

    29. This book was just better than the first! In this 2nd installment we learn more about Beatrice De Novo. We read about her becoming more into herself as the years go by. Even though I seriously disliked the way Giovanni went through with he did to keep her safe. You understood his unselfish reasons for why he did what he did at the end. " I love you, Beatrice De Novo. I fell in love with the girl I met six years ago, and I love the woman in front of me even more." After what seems like an eternit [...]
