Random Rita ~ Friday Feature Fic!

Wet Rob Avi

Sorry, peeps!

No time to present a full fledged post…emergency editin’ job, BUT I have wonderful news!!!

Imagine my surprise when I received the following PM from Tropical Sorbet today:

“Hi Rita01tx,

 Thank you so much for reading and reviewing Edroar. I FINALLY finished chapter 17 last night. He’s with his beloved beta Happymess right now. I know it’s been an insane amount of time. I’m not sure if you’re still interested, but I thought I’d let you know. Hope all is well for you. Thanks again. 🙂

Edroar the Angry Lion frightens all the girls and boys at Cullen Publishing with his loud roar. Will his new massage therapist Bella Swan run away like all the rest, or can she tame this savage beast? AH/AU OOC

Woo hoo! *Muppet flails!*
And, to refresh your memories…

“Good luck Bella!” Angela called out to me, nervously, as I closed the door to our apartment.

I was headed to my first day on the job, as Edward Cullen’s personal massage therapist. Apparently, that was something I was going to need lots of luck with. I heard the countless stories about Mr. Cullen, though most of his employees called him Edroar the Angry Lion, behind his back of course.

That was the name of a children’s book a group of authors at Cullen Publishing anonymously wrote about him…with a poison pen.

It was the story of an angry lion, named Edroar, who used his mighty roar to frighten everyone away, leaving him sad and alone in the jungle. The underground story was a favorite amongst his employees.

According to Angela, the book was practically biographical, since Mr. Cullen would literally roar at his staff when angered, causing all the girls and boys at Cullen Publishing to scamper off  shivering in fear.

From what I’d been told he caused at least two girls to flee his office in tears each week.

I loved the feeling of massage oil; I let it slip through my fingers slowly. I enjoyed its silky texture as I spread it across his back. I felt myself slipping into the zone.

Whether I was singing, writing lyrics or giving a massage, I would lose myself deeply and end up in a creative zone.

My hands were gliding over the smooth skin on his back. Oddly enough our skin color was nearly identical, it was hard to tell where my skin ended and his began.

I watched as my fingertips slid up and down his spine, I warmed out the area by creating circular friction with my palms.

He laid there still as a statue.

After warming and kneading his muscles, I noticed his breathing had gotten louder. It actually knocked me out of my zone, which was really tough to do.

I cautiously peered over at his face. His mouth hung slightly open. His eyes were darting around beneath his eyelids. I heard the faintest snore.

The mighty Edroar had fallen asleep.

* * *

And where did we leave off at chapter 16?

A vile slew of obscenities burst from my lips, followed by a praise to God, then some very ungodly moaning. A few flashes of light and my entire body tensed in the most powerful release I ever felt. I nearly passed out from the force of it.

My body went limp, falling against his.

“Jesus Christ!” I panted.

“I prefer if you call me Edward,” he replied coolly.

Ha! Who says dreams don’t come true LMAO!

Happy Friday, y’all!

    I’ve heard of that story, but haven’t read it yet because it seemed abandoned. Looks like a Good One to read once complete!

      It was such a hoot readin’ it before she stepped back for a while, Donna darlin’! I’m ecstatic she’s back with every intention of finishin’ it!

    Hi Rita!! Long time, no write. (I mean me, not you), but you know why. Going to try to go back and catch-up on all the RA I’ve missed over the past few months. I’m just now getting back into reading Twific again. I’m getting better everyday, praise God. This story has been on my TBR list forever. So glad she’s back to writing it. I look forward to her hitting the “complete” button. Hope you are doing well. I’ve really missed everyone. Rob hugs and kisses to you. E

  3. Hey y’all, happy Friday! Whenever I see a new post, it brightens my day. This has been a dreadful and glorious week all rolled in one. Truly this week I’ve tried to squeeze in reading to escape the stress and craziness, and the recs from last week (two weeks?) did not disappoint. I absolutely loved The Western and My Blood, My Conscience and Your Soul. Both were excellent. I absolutely loved the darker, unapologetic vampward in MBMCaYS. He refused to lie to make Bella love him. He was so deliciously dangerous and oozed sexy animal magnetism. In addition to those, I read a couple of good o/s by theladyingrey42.

    Edward Cullen wanted. He wanted a thick cock in his throat and a sharp jaw beneath his fingers. The worst part? His wife knew it, too. Well, he thought it was the worst part, until for Christmas she got him exactly what he wanted: a threesome. PWP. This fic is SIZZLING, explicit, but not vulgar. There’s tenderness and love between Edward and Bella, even with Jasper’s involvement. The other o/s is https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6879759/1/Five Nights
    She thinks that I’m rejecting her. I know I’m still rejecting myself. – Five nights that could have happened in Eclipse. You know, if you forget that whole abstinence thing. AU / ExB / EPOV.

      Oh, boy! Well, Kay darlin’, if you loved the Edward in MBMCaYS, you’ll swoon over the new and improved…in my view, Edward in:
      Red Dawn by JAM11
      Edward had always warned Bella that the pack were dangerous. Hostile, volatile and aggressive in nature. She ignored him, testing even Edward’s own vampire instinct by staying friends with his enemy, Jacob. One event will change them all, Bella never truly understood the supernatural world, the reality of a vampire protecting his mate. WARNING: Character Deaths, Violence.

      A WIP at 11 chapters {and I’ve only had time to read the first 5}, I’m rivited by the plot and storyline! It’s unfortunate he doesn’t have a good beta and I’d love to get my hands on it only I’d be left with no life. Nevertheless, my eyes seem to make the corrections as I read…kinda like with Ruthless and Ivory!

      • Did you say new and improved Edward? Yes, please. I’m nervous about the death warning, but I’m game. I do love me some DarkWard. Thank you dear. Oh I wanted so badly to edit Ruthless and Ivory. It’s so good, it deserves to be cleaned up. If the story is strong, I can usually read through the flaws.

    • dpennell007

      I loved five nights! I’ll have to check out The Greatest Gift soon.

  4. So wow, miracles do happen! I looked up Edroar and it has 4500+ follows – imagine all the squeeing that will happen when the update notice goes out!

    Eewee, so glad to hear from you again. Don’t know your situation exactly, but I’m happy your health is improving. I’ve missed hearing your thoughts!

    And Kay S, I totally floved “Five Nights”. Because Lord knows I wanted to “forget that whole abstinence thing”, and who better to give us that story than The Lady in Grey?

    OK, near the beginning of last week’s epic comment chain (62 posts??), I mentioned that I am reading “Changing My Course”. Rita did a pouty face because it’s an apparently abandoned WIP (which I didn’t realize, dammit). HOWEVER, let me say if there were just three chapters of this fic I would read it anyway, I’m enjoying it that much. And there are 27! It’s an Actorward fic, one of my favorite kinds of catnip, and what’s best is that while she vividly replicates Rob physically, this guy has an intriguingly different, fun, and entirely believable personality. (Of course I have to remind myself that I have only the remotest idea about Rob’s actual personality…) Plus her Bella is a good change of pace. And the lemons – whew!! I’m only on chapter 12, so I’ll let you know if she leaves the story in a good place when I get to chapter 27.

    Thanks, Rita, for making the time to deliver the good news.

    • Renee, I agree about Five Nights. The NM AUs I read last week were excellent too. I look forward to hearing your thoughts about CMC when you’ve finished it. Pleased keep us posted because you’ve piqued my interest. Rita’s rec this week had me with the whole Edroar book thing. That is hilarious and I’d love to read this one, but I am going to have to wait until this one is completed. I’m currently reading DayDreaming Fairy’s other fic, The Apartment. I can’t recall if it was mentioned by one of the gals here last week or not. Can’t give an opinion yet though, I just started.

    • rita01tx

      You’re welcome, Renee darlin’! And there are quite a few unfinished WIP’s well worth the read…been there, done that, pdf’d the hell out of ’em before they disappeared LOL!

    Okay my two cents this week. I couldn’t read this fast enough. It was completed about 4 years ago {yes I’m working on the bottom of my TBR list} Best angst I’ve read in a very long time. Couldn’t find time to clean house, cook, work, or go to sleep.

    Edward is a sexy Bar Tender with a secret that makes him run at the first sign of trouble. Bella has a sarcastically smart mouth that both infuriates and intrigues him. *2011 Summertime Avant Garde Award Winner for Best Realistic Lemon!* Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Edward, Bella – Chapters: 43 – Words: 162,105 – Reviews: 1,169 – Favs: 1,151 – Follows: 523 – Updated: Aug 12, 2011 – Published: Jan 20, 2011 –

    Also just started this one, and so far really good.
    High Fidelity By: IReen Weiss
    Damaged Edward, damaged Bella. Two sides of the same scarred coin. When one side is up, the other is down. Language and lots of it. Lemons eventually. It’s a slow burn, slow and painful. Mature. Lots of random pop culture references. AH, AU, ExB.

    • Hey Bev, I’m grabbing WoWY immediately, sounds really good. I have a fic with the same title, by Rochelle Allison. I haven’t read it yet though. https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5807324/1/With or Without You
      Edward and Bella were once high school sweethearts. Years later, their lives converge unexpectedly, forcing Bella to deal with and accept things she’s long since tried to move past. This story started with “Trampoline”, once a WitFit prompt.

      I have HF already, but haven’t gotten to it yet. With your rec and with it being one of Rita’s top ten of all time fics, I’ve just got to read it.

    Hi, Zveka darlin’! Never heard of With Or Without You by xXKiwiCullenXx so I had a quick read of the first chapter…bad move! Now I can’t put it down and have stuff…important stuff to do LMAO!
    High Fidelity, on the otherhand, is in my Top Ten favorite fics of all time *high five!*
