Late again, dang it!
And by a couple weeks at that *facepalm!*
So, while I’ve been readin’ a lot, only a very few fics stood out enough to bring to your attention, startin’ with a one shot…yes, a ONE SHOT!
Hot off the presses today, you’re gonna want more of…
Bella hires Edward to be her pretend boyfriend for Renee’s weddin’ to Phil but she’s not at all like the women Edward has encoutered before which totally throws him off his game LOL!
Edward checked his GPS. It was the correct address, but nothing about the neighborhood implied that trust-fund kids with thousands of dollars to burn on a fake boyfriend would choose to live there. It was decidedly middle-class. He felt out of place as he climbed out of the red Lexus IS C. He self-consciously smoothed his slacks, straightened his collar and grabbed the half-dozen roses he had purchased from a florist on the way there.
“Time to make her night,” he whispered to himself.
Edward took the elevator up to the fifth floor, checked his watch to make sure he wasn’t too early, then knocked on the girl’s door. She opened it almost immediately.
Edward did his best to hide his shock. She had long brown hair, tied up with a rubberband. Her face was completely free of cosmetics, and she was wearing glasses with thick, brown plastic frames. Her figure was completely hidden beneath a man’s XL t-shirt and baggy jeans.
“You from ‘Plus One’?”
“Uh, yeah. I’m Edward. Can I come in?”
“What are those for?” she asked, wrinkling her nose at the roses.
“They’re for you. Flowers. For you. . . um. Yeah.” Edward had never felt so awkward.
Once he gets to know Bella better, Edward has an epiphany!
Edward glanced back at the photographer to see him snapping pictures of the two of them. That’s when it hit him. He wasn’t posing. He wasn’t acting. He genuinely wanted Bella to be attracted to him. Her response to his proximity send a thrill up his spine. He wanted more. And that’s exactly why he shouldn’t go for it. She wasn’t a giddy college girl excited about experimenting with her sexuality. And she definitely wasn’t a horny, jaded cougar. She was different. Special. She wasn’t for him.
Awww, poor Edward! I’m desperately hopin’ this author will be inspired *cough*bullied*cough* into continuin’ this story ’cause there’s so much more to be explored!
Please read and review! Maybe we can encourage her!?!?!

Why I waited so long to read this story, I’ll never know! But, now that I have, I’m totally blown away by the beautiful bonds the characters either already have or will have by the end!
For instance, Edward’s love/hate relationship with his brother, Masen, has just given him invaluable advice on how to get into Bella’s pants!
I paused. It was painful but it had to be done. “All kidding aside, Masen. Thanks.”
“Aw big brother, your gratitude warms my heart. It really does.” Then Masen sighed. “Of course, man can not live on gratitude alone.”
I realized what he wanted. Hell. No.
“I’m not doing it.”
“Yes you will,” Masen said smugly. “If you want Lyssa and I to watch those boys so you can put your ‘Get into Bella’s Panties’ plan into effect, you will. And you’ll enjoy it.”
“I’m still waaiitiing.”
I heaved a sigh, knowing there was no getting out of this.
“Okay, okay. Shit…Thank you, Masen for sharing your wisdom with me. I’m the luckiest brother in the world to have you as my sibling. I’m so grateful for the awesomeness that is you.”
Masen sat back and grinned, motioning me to continue.
“I bow before your wisdom and knowledge and I thank you for so generously sharing it with me,” I repeated by rote.
“Keep going.” He was enjoying this way too much.
I made a face and finished off the torture. “And I confess that I just need to get my panties out of my crack and admit that I want to be just like you.” The last few words were spit out between clenched teeth.
“See? That wasn’t so hard.”
“I’ll get you back,” I promised.
“Oh I’m sure you’ll try.”
Edward makes a friend for life when one of Bella’s sons spots a dog in trouble on the side of the road and insists he stops to help!
Those magical words. Can we keep her, Mom? How often had those words been used by a hopeful child? I had said them myself more than once when I was a kid. I’d been expecting to hear them since we’d seen the dog on the side of the road. I knew that Bella had too. She smiled and brushed her hand over Sam’s dark hair. “Well, I think she’s picked us, hasn’t she?”
Sam gave a cheer and went to tell his brothers the good news.
“I’ll help take care of her,” I offered.
“You’re as bad as one of the kids,” Bella teased, coming to stand beside me. We watched as the dog wandered around the yard, sniffing and getting familiar with things.
“Aw, come on, can we keep her? Can we, can we? Huh? Huh?” I said in her ear. “
“What is it about boys and dogs?” she asked, shaking her head.
“We’re both hairy, have been known to pass gas in public, and have humped things we shouldn’t have,” I told her. “It’s only natural that we’d have an affinity for each other.”
“Bet you wish you could lick your own balls,” Bella shot back and her words went straight to my dick.
“I’d much rather have you lick them,” I said before I could think about it. I drew back. Had I offended her? I should have known better. Bella didn’t offend easily and certainly not over anything sexual. She was a demon, temptress, ninja after all. Such creatures are not faint of heart. I heard her snort with laughter and she stood on her toes to give me a kiss, and then leaned in to whisper in my ear.
“I’m sure we can arrange that.”
Bella gave me a wicked grin and walked back into the house, leaving me alone with our new dog and an evil boner. Demon ninja temptress.
Honestly, I’ve never enjoyed a family oriented fic so much since I started readin’ fanfiction!!!
Guess what else? She wrote the outtakes in parallel so it pays to have them both open at the same time and switch back and forth LOL!
Many of the outtakes, especially in the beginnin’, are somewhat darker than the original as they deal with Bella’s life before Edward. Even so, they are just as beautifully written!
When he left, I closed the door behind him and leaned against it, taking a moment to relive the few minutes we’d spent together. Getting to know him just a little better had not alleviated the need inside of me at all. If anything, it had spurred it on, grown it, increased it, given it more space inside of me.
Why couldn’t he have been an ass? That would have made dealing with his beautiful face, that velvet voice and smoking hot body so much easier.
Hopefully he hadn’t seen me wiping the drool from my chin.
I wasn’t good enough for him, and if I ever hinted that I found him attractive he would run as far away and as fast as he could. With good reason. It wasn’t just my family that was broken; it was me.
I’d accept his help with Emmett and keep my feelings to myself. There was no need to sully what was an act of kindness on his part by acting inappropriately. Then when the debt had been paid, he would say good-bye.
And I would never see him again.
It was better that way. But the want and longing inside of me did not abate.
“Oh Mac….what am I going to do?” It didn’t feel odd to ask him, even about this. We had been best friends forever.
Be happy, sweetheart. That’s what you’re going to do.
And did I wanna leave at the end? Noooooo! *sigh!*
What fics have been keepin’ you busy???
Happy Friday, y’all!
