Rita’s Random Fic Recs!

ROB ATTACK

Afternoon, ladies!

Here I am, a day late and a dollar short, so to speak! Now, since it’s no longer Friday, I changed up the title of this post…hell’n you might see that more often in future LOL!

Anyway, I do have some recs for you I think you’ll like…I certainly did!

ROB ATTACKhttps://www.fanfiction.net/s/6178385/1/Chain-Reaction

A chance encounter with a stranger on the ferry is the spark that sets off a chain of events. By the time Bella realizes what’s happening, is it too late to change her mind? What happens when fate grabs you and won’t let go? AU/OOC B/E

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Supernatural – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 33 – Words: 183,136 – Reviews: 1,900 – Favs: 1,066 – Follows: 1,146 – Updated: May 17 – Published: Jul 26, 2010 – Status: Complete – id: 6178385

You know, I waited a looong time for this fic to be marked complete! It was torture not to just dive right in…you know how I love my WIPs! But, when I read these lines, the hair rose on the back of my neck and I fuckin’ KNEW it was gonna be worth the wait…AND IT WAS!

This isn’t a love story. This is a seduction. A complete persuasion of mind, body, and soul. Of behavior and beliefs. And I wouldn’t change it for the world…I think.

Alienated from his family for years by the bloody carnage he wreaks in one of Alice’s visions, Edward has only recently gone back to feedin’ off animals when he crosses Bella’s path so it’s incredibly difficult for him to resist killin’ her!

His brows drew together in a slight frown, those fathomless pupils of his holding me pinned in place. Closer, closer, they beckoned, urging me to relax in his presence. While my limbs were only too happy to oblige him and remained still, my heart raced faster, faster, and I honestly couldn’t tell if it was fear or desire that affected me so. My silence had lasted way beyond what was appropriate for a conversation.

Ever so slowly, he raised a hand, his fingertips hovering close to my jaw. He watched his fingers intently, a look of extreme concentration on his face. I couldn’t help the gasp that rushed over my lips when the tip of one finger traced a line up to the top of my ear and rubbed softly against the overheated arch. It was cool against my skin, soothing the embarrassing burn with his lightest touch before he moved his hand into the hair at the back of my neck. His lips parted the slightest bit as his eyelids dropped just a fraction. He feels it too… 

Oh, God, what is happening to me? I’m not this kind of person!

It was as if I was watching myself on video as we both leaned closer to one another. I let my eyelids fall closed and leaned forward slowly, needing to feel his lips undermine, but I just couldn’t cross those last few millimeters. Like somehow, what I was doing would be less wrong if he was the one to kiss me. Cool, sweet breath ghosted low over my cheek. 

So, so close… 

“Edward,” I whispered, just so I could feel his name form on my lips as I tasted his breath.

I felt more intoxicated with each lungful of air we shared, every molecule of me attuning itself to every molecule of him. Being so close to him was slowly lulling me into some sort of sensitized lethargy, where only he and I existed, his cool strength soothing my warm skin.

His forehead grazed mine, the tip of his nose tickled my cheek, and his lips were coming closer. I was only breathing him now, taking shallow breaths as he exhaled. I was almost floating; adrift on a cloud of lust and adrenaline and Edward, and my only anchor was the hard fingers clenched so tightly in my hair.

What is he doing to me? Things like this…they just don’t exist.

And then, it didn’t. He didn’t.

Without warning, I was falling forward onto the seat next to me, barely managing to get my hands out to protect my face.

Edward was gone. No sign of him whatsoever. Had I been sleeping? No, he couldn’t be a dream because right at the back of my neck, where he’d been clutching me so tightly, my scalp stung. Some of my hair must have gotten caught in his fingers.

What the hell just happened to me? 

I don’t have enough words in my vocabulary to sing the praises of Chain Reaction so just READ READ READ READ!!!!

ROB ATTACKhttps://www.fanfiction.net/s/12427001/1/Just-One-Look

Just one look. That’s all it took. I was his. All he had to do was ask.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 8 – Words: 23,077 – Reviews: 1,236 – Favs: 1,094 – Follows: 1,426 – Updated: May 19 – Published: Mar 31 – Status: Complete – id: 12427001

If, like me, your lady bits have a a Pavlovian reaction to jinglin’ tool belts, this Constructionward fills the bill in more ways than one!

They came in frequently, eight of them, and filled the huge table at the back. Construction workers, all dressed in plaid and denim, complete some days with tool belts. They arrived, taking over the entire place with their laughter and jibes. They teased Jess mercilessly, ate huge meals, drank a lot of coffee, and basically made our day.

Especially mine.

“Damn it,” Rose hissed. “They were here yesterday. I didn’t expect them today. I sat on the wrong side of the booth!”

Chuckling, I glanced up. “Your beefcake is facing away. So is your cowboy, Alice.”

Alice leaned forward. “What about your guy?”

I knew without looking he was in his usual spot. I peeked up again, meeting the gaze that made my heart beat a little faster than normal and my cheeks burn. Vivid, warm green met my nervous blue, then they dropped down, breaking our connection.

“Yeah,” I breathed. “He’s there.”

“We need to convince Shelly to cover the end wall with a mirror,” Rose mused. “I’d even pay for it.”

I giggled as Jess put my toast and scrambled eggs in front of me.

“Lord,” she whispered. “The hotness level at the table. I might spontaneously burst.”

“Is Mike there?”

She nodded, her eyes dancing with glee. “He stayed back yesterday and asked me out.”

“Really?”

Rose leaned forward. “Jess, we need you to recon for us.”

Jess laughed. “You want info on the beefcake and the cowboy?”

Alice giggled. “We need to know names, rank, and availability. Oh, on Bella’s green eyes, too.”

Jess stared at me. “Bella, you never said . . .”

“No, it’s fine, Jess. Just enjoy yourself. Tell us all about it on Sunday.”

She grinned. “I will.”

Only eight sweet, sexy chapters so there’s no excuse not to give it your undivided attention!

~oOo~ROB ATTACKhttps://www.fanfiction.net/s/12225328/1/Fixer-Upper

Edward is a single dad and Bella isn’t as happy as she’d like to be with her fiancé. The two of them meet as Edward starts the adventure of fixing up an old house and as hard as they try, they can’t stay away from each other.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Friendship – Chapters: 20 – Words: 67,705 – Reviews: 138 – Favs: 132 – Follows: 214 – Updated: May 25 – Published: Nov 8, 2016 – id: 12225328

With his own stupidity contributin’ to his downfall, Mike becomes steadily relegated to the background once Bella meets Edward!

“Swan’s Hardware, this is Bella speaking.” I answered the phone on day six of us fighting. “How can I help you?”

“Hi, I was just wondering if you sold tiling tools?” The man asked.

“Yes, we carry a wide variety of different tools as well as different brands.” I answered, and I wondered if this guy was cute. He certainly sounded cute. . . I just hoped he wasn’t old. Then I snapped myself out of it because even though we were fighting, I was engaged.

“And you’re open until what time today?” He asked. I looked at the clock and it was already four.

“We close at five on Saturdays.” I explained. “But, we’re open on Sundays as well if you can’t make it.”

“I’ll be there. Thanks.” He said.

“Well, I’ll see you in a few.” I blushed as I hung up the phone. That was so not professional and I really shouldn’t be blushing because of a guy. . . a customer. . . on the phone.

I eagerly watched the clock, waiting for this potentially beautiful man to walk through the door. When I heard the bell ding, I shot up and made sure there were no bumps in my ponytail. What the hell was I doing? When I turned the corner, I had to take a second because if this was the guy from over the phone, he was fucking hot. Like hotter than anyone I’d ever met before.

“Hi,” I smiled. “Can I help you with something?”

“Are you Bella?” He asked with a crooked smile.

“I am.” I nodded.

“I’m the tile guy from over the phone.” He laughed. “Could you help me find the tools I need?”

“Yeah, they’re this way.” I turned and tried not to squeal. He was fucking hot, just like I’d predicted from his voice. “What kind of tools do you need?” I asked as we stopped at the aisle dedicated to tiling.

“I need spacers and leveling pliers.” He said, completely distracted as he looked at the different spacers we carried.

“The Vitrex brand is popular.” I told him. “And then these are the pliers my Dad always says are good.”

“You’re Dad a contracter?” He asked, picking out the spacers he need and then picking up the QEP pliers.

“He owns the store.”

I blushed as I lead him to the back of the store where our cash register was. I rung all his things out and told him his total. I really wanted him to keep shopping here so I could talk to him, but he was a customer and not my fiancé. Dad would kill me for flirting with customers and Mike would just be pissed that I was flirting with someone else.

“Have a nice day.” I smiled as I handed him the brown paper bag.

“Oh, I will.” And he winked again. I watched him as he left the store. Well, I stared at his ass as he walked out of the store. I seriously needed a cold shower or something. I was not one to gawk at strangers butts as they walked away, especially not customers butts.

“Earth to Bella.” Dad laughed as he waved his hand in front of my face.

“What?” I asked, turned to face him. Dad was like a ninja or something. I hardly ever heard him coming downstairs.

“We’re closing. It’s five.”

“It’s already five?” I wined. I didn’t want to go home to World War III right now. Not after I’d had such a pleasant conversation with a fuck hot guy.

Even though it takes a while until they finally get together, it’s such a pleasurable read, I didn’t even mind!

Hope you enjoy today’s recs and, to make up for bein’ MIA, please enjoy some gratuitous ROBPORN!!!

Sensual Sunday ~ The Red Robe of Pain!

Wet Rob Avi

Oooh, ladies!

You have GOT to check this out!

Just came across this gorgeous edit {on Facebook} by Bru SlaveforRob of Edward in that red Volturi robe he wore in New Moon {thanks, PullmydaisyToo}!

Rob Attack

Of course, why they even wanted to cover Edward’s naked chest, I’ll never know *pouty face!*

Rob Attack

Oh, what the hell…I want sparkles!

Rob Attack

Anyway, Edward was doin’ just fine before the Volturi cheated!

Rob Attack

See? He had everything under control, but then…

Rob Attack

They stuck him in the Red Robe of Pain and he got his ass kicked all over the place!

Rob Attack

I think it was jinxed!

Rob Attack

‘Cause every move he made after that ended in disaster!

Rob Attack

Until they broke him {lucky for us, Edward heals quickly}!

Rob Attack

So, basically, in the film version, they made Edward Felix’s bitch!

Rob Attack

At the time, I justified it as Edward and Alice not wantin’ to reveal the true extent of their powers so the Volturi would underestimate them later on, but was it worth…this???

 

Happy Sunday, y’all!

Fan Fiction, Sex Gods and Single Girls ~ After a mortifyingly awkward first meeting, fanfiction writer & new teacher, Bella, finds story inspiration in her hot-headed, player-of-a-neighbor. But she shouldn’t judge a book by its cover and she just might faint when she discovers who’s reading her latest fic! Art imitates life imitates art. A fic in a fic and a homage to this fandom. AH/Canon Couples/Humor/UST/Love & Lust

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 70 – Words: 526,387 – Reviews: 19,185 – Favs: 4,694 – Follows: 5,672 – Updated: Nov 18 – Published: Jun 21, 2011 – Status: Complete – id: 7103047

I recently spent the past weekend immersed in the lives of this Bella and Edward.  The story is very long—821 pages as a PDF—but don’t allow the length to discourage you.  There were so many instances in this story where I laughed out loud.  The zany antics of Edward and Bella, plus their supporting cast of characters, was very refreshing.  The jokes were real and not forced, and shockingly surprising, as bannerday breathed new life into the canon storyline.  Her subtle and not-so-subtle twists and Twilight references made for a striking contrast.  I found myself thrilled with her ingenuity.  I haven’t seen a story of this magnitude in quite some time, nor had one touch me as deeply.

The premise is this:  Bella, a shy, virginal, twenty-three-year-old high school English teacher, moves to Seattle to start her new job.  Her mother and stepfather have purchased a townhome for her and Jake helps her move in.  She also writes fanfiction stories, based on her favorite novels, Stardusted, with the characters of Ethan and Stella.  Jake’s involved with Leah, which is a huge sigh of relief rather than the same tired old triangle.  The townhome is situated across the street from Edward’s, who’s a twenty-eight-year-old man-whore—he’s rich, drives a flashy car, dresses to the nines and is the most good-looking man Bella’s ever laid eyes on.  Surprise, surprise!  When Bella pulls up on moving-in day in her rusty old bomb of a pickup, backfiring and making explosive sounds, she’s unknowingly interrupting a romantic interlude for Edward and his flavor-of-the-night.  Here’s a peek at their first, also explosive, meeting:

Meanwhile, at the house across the way, and completely unbeknownst to Bella, Edward had slammed the front door of his house open violently. You would normally think of slamming a door shut, but no, he had actually slammed that door open, quite probably putting a dent into the drywall with the large, decorative doorknob as it struck.

He began striding down the front walkway that led to his driveway, curling his fists tightly into dangerous weapons as he began yelling.

“Hey! Hey, you! Hey, asshole!”

Of course the driver of the truck was oblivious as the engine noisily rumbled and chugged and sputtered. Edward could see the guy sitting in the front seat, baseball cap on his head, complacently disturbing the peace of the entire fucking neighborhood.

Edward realized too late that he had left his home wearing only the whisper-light, flowing black silk pajama pants he had pulled on. Other than that he was nude. And barefoot. His thoughts were in a whirl as he stalked down his driveway and across the roughly paved street toward the nightmare truck in his bare feet.

Just you wait… Crap! …until I get my hands on you… Ouch! …you senseless idiot… Shit! …ruining my perfectly good morning… Ow! …and forcing me… Goddammit! …to walk across… Hell! …this shittily paved street… Ahh! …in my bare feet… Sonofabitch! …until they’re good and goddamned shredded. Fuck!

He came up on the back end of the old red truck, right near the exhaust pipe and was met with two heartstopping blasts, followed by thoughts on how best to greet the idiot behind the wheel.

KER-POW! KA-BLAM!

Fucking hell!

Oh, I am so going to deck you the minute you get out of that truck, a-hole!

Bella was just about to scream, “Will you just shut the hell up?” when she realized someone had begun banging on her door, startling her into inaction. 

Edward’s yells and bangs on the door had been useless. The dude had just been sitting there in his truck, ignoring him. He couldn’t even see the guy clearly with the glare on the window. He would just have to open the door himself so he could more effectively chew the guy’s ass out. 

Bella’s door was suddenly wrenched open, taking her by surprise.

Yet that was nothing compared to the string of abusive profanities that followed and absolutely stunned Bella as she

turned to climb out of the cab.

“Hey, Asshole! Get the fucking hell out of the goddamned, motherfucking, piece-of-shit, cockblocking truck!”

Bella scrambled out of the truck, looking up and facing the source of the screaming to see what was wrong and why this person was yelling at the top of his lungs. 

The volatile young man, standing just outside the driver’s door and spewing the invectives, was red-faced and breathing hard as he spit the words out viciously. The vein in his forehead was bulging and throbbing as he ranted.

Suddenly his eyes widened in surprise as he yelled and looked at her more carefully.

Edward had realized two things while yelling:

First, he had noticed that the guy exiting the truck was built rather slightly; only about five and a half feet tall at the very most. 

The second thing Edward had realized was that the guy was a girl.

KA-BLAM!

Edward and Bella get off on the wrong foot, and it only goes downhill from there.  The hilarity of the situation is truly spot-on.  Within the course of a couple of days, Bella sees three different women leaving Edward’s house.  After some more hateful exchanges between the two of them, she decides to begin a new fanfiction story, “From Hate to Heat”, with Edward as the star.  She begins detailing the story of when she met him, with herself as Stella, and Edward as Ethan.  She can’t help but be attracted to Edward, asshole extraordinaire though he is.  I mean, who could resist Edward—or Ethan, for that matter?

*banner created by Twi-Holoic68*

How they progress from enemies to friends to lovers is a spectacular journey.  There are many more embarrassing situations, with just the right touch of angst and drama to make it more interesting.  I waited until this story was finished last week and I want to say, right here and now, that it was well worth the two years it took for completion.

I was truly engaged in the lives of these characters and felt the author showcased appropriately their maturing personalities.  The story is told in third-person, truly a favorite of mine, and bannerday really fleshes out their psyches.  She’s able to display the inner minds of both Bella and Edward, revealing the full picture instantaneously, instead of having to wait for alternate and/or overlapping points of view.

My hat’s off to you, dear bannerday, for writing such a compelling literary masterpiece, which made me laugh, cry, smile, and then laugh some more.  Please read this wonderful story and leave her some love.  Tell her “mauigirl60” sent you!

Fire & Ice by drotuno

*made by beffers87 / Bethany Tullos*

Fire & Ice ~ FOURTH in the Gravity Series. When one of their own is threatened, the crew will have to travel halfway around the globe to get them back. What they find will have them racing against the odds to save more than just one life. AH E/B Series.

Twilight, M, English, Adventure & Romance, chapters: 12, words: 86k+, favs: 574, follows: 648, updated: 27 November published: Oct 20, Bella, Edward

So many of my friends here in fanficland know how devoted I am to the Edward from drotuno’s Gravity series. Mercward, as he’s known to his fans, stole my heart many moons ago and I don’t want it back! So, imagine my delight, after a two year break, when Deb (drotuno) announced a fourth book in the series…let’s just say there was a lot of dancing, flailing and fangirling in my kitchen that day!

For those of you who have yet to delve into this epic series, it’s an action and adventure rollercoaster. The first part was Blood & Glory, which threw Edward and Bella together in the most difficult of circumstances. Edward being a member of a mercinary group, all ex-soldiers, honourable and fierce; Bella heading up a PI business with a team of trusted and intelligent women by her side. I loved it from the first chapter. The following two stories have been equally gripping, sometimes dark, each telling a stand alone story but at the very heart of everything is the thread of deep love and the connection between Edward and Bella. Earlier this summer I reviewed them as my summer read. (Read previous review Here)

Onto the new WiP, number four, Fire & Ice …well, drotuno does not disappoint! It picks up in real time, two years on from number three, Smoke & Mirrors, and the team is as strong as ever, working together, but easing in to a break for the summer, tidying up loose ends and taking only small jobs. Unfortunately things are never that straightforward, when they fear for the safety of Carlisle, who’s on a business trip to Moscow (just so you know, this Daddy C has to be one of my favourite Carlisles in the fic world, so I’m all for them watching his back! *winks*). It seems they are right to be wary and Carlisle may just be in need of their expertise and assistance…and so the adventure begins…

The story is as tense, nerve-wracking and fear inducing as ever, but still, for me, the relationship between Edward and Bella is magical and underpins everything. Sexy as hell? Yep, that too! Beyond that, the extended family is not only believable and well written, but full of well-rounded characters who each have their place and belong in the team. They matter to me, Deb has made me care about them.

This short excerpt is about as spoiler-free as I could find, but shows the tenderness and understanding that comes from a long-term relationship.

My eyes drifted back to my husband. Throughout the years, we’d learned to trust our gut instincts. He trusted mine to the ends of the earth and back, but I relied upon his. And to see him worried about his dad was wrecking me. I wanted to pluck Carlisle and Esme out of Moscow and set them down in front of him, if only to take away the dark look on Edward’s face.

He clawed at his hair, pulling it up off his forehead.

“You’re gonna pull it all out. Go have Aunt Kate cut it, Edward. Take a break, or I’m gonna use Bethy’s hair thingys to keep it out of your eyes,” I threatened him, leaning in to kiss his cheek. “I’ve got this. And leave your phone in case your dad calls.”

His grin was every bit the combination adorable and sexy, not to mention a touch disbelieving as to whether or not I’d meant it.

“Barrettes with flowers on them, handsome. I’m not kidding,” I chortled, shoving at him until he got up.

“Bella…” he started to argue, but leaned down to kiss my lips. “Just…let me know if you find something.”

“Yes, sir,” I answered against his lips and then watched him as he left the room.

Although Deb advises reading the series in order, if you really want to, I believe that this could be read as a stand alone story. The previous stories are referenced but also explained in context. However, I do think you would be missing out on a great read if you overlooked the first three books. It’s not all lightness and fluff, there are dark moments, difficult challenges within the story lines but the relationships are strong throughout.

Here’s what drotuno had to say in her A/N at the beginning of Fire & Ice:

“…I reread the whole series myself, reread just about every review, and I wanted to step back a bit, go back to how Blood & Glory felt…and Sin & Innocence, too, if I’m still being honest. I will warn you that this is as dark as the ones before it – darker maybe – but I’m not here to rip Mercward and Sweetness apart with drama aimed at their marriage. That’s not how I work. We are stepping back into their lives just as we’ve done before, but this plot is like the ones before it – action, adventure, violence, foul language and lemony goodness (pfft! like that would change). If those aren’t your thing, then this isn’t for you. I STRONGLY suggest that you read the others before attempting to dive into this one.”

If you’ve got a long weekend and really want a good read to get your teeth into, it’s well worth the time, whether you start at the very beginning – or you’re already a Mercward devotee and want to join us every Wednesday and Sunday for Fire & Ice updates.

If you need a visual of Mercward, here he is ladies…

Tension by Ta Paixao

*made by Jamie Arkins*

*made by Jamie Arkins*

Tension ~ Take up all slack and hold on—a possible fall is anticipated. After three years of drifting alone, Edward returns to Upstate New York to see about a girl, a promise to his brother. He should have stayed hidden. EPOV. Adult content 

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Drama/Romance – Chapters: 12 – Words: 23,822 – Reviews: 648 – Favs: 378 – Follows: 644 – Updated: 18h ago – Published: Sep 2 – Bella, Edward – Complete

I don’t even know where to begin with this twelve chapter story. It’s different, intriguing, incredibly well written and kinda mind-blowing. If you want cute, fluffy and a yellow brick road then avoid it like the plague! If however, you’re happy to upset your own equilibrium and take a chance, then read away. It’s well named, as Tension runs right through the story as well as Edward’s narrative.

Edward is adrift, looking for some closure and revisiting old haunts, disaffected and alone – when he meets a girl he doesn’t know if he can trust.

I pull my Sig from my waistband and clear the safety.

This is all wrong.

Alert now, I hear muffled noise from the main house to the right. Through the dirty porch screen I see the shabby yellow curtains are drawn on all four front windows. Eyes scanning, I quietly ascend the three steps and pull open the metal porch door. It creaks and whines, alerting the whole damn town that I’m here. The noise inside continues: running water, metal on metal, and maybe a voice under it all.

I cock the gun and point it at the floor in front of me. Taking one last check of my back, I grab the front door handle. It’s ripped from my hand. In it’s place stands a slim brunette dripping on the threshold with a blue towel wrapped around her body.

Her chin lifts as she scans me from the chest up. We stare at each other. Her eyes are dark, giving away nothing. Light freckles cover a slight nose against pale skin. My attention slides down to her lips when her teeth tug on the bottom one and it turns a darker shade of pink. My forefinger slides to the trigger.

“You’ll do.” She grabs my left hand and tugs me through the door.

For more than that you’ll have to read, as I really don’t want to spoil it. It’s refreshing and had me wanting to reread immediately after I finished to see what I’d missed, rethink my assumptions and just to savour the quality writing. I read the final chapter as it posted, right before going to sleep, when I awoke I was still mulling it over in my mind; it made me think. Ta Paixao wasn’t afraid to follow through on her vision and tell the story her way, I’m glad she did.

*Reviews by Cared*

It’s not possible to count my current WIP reading list using my fingers and toes alone.  I glimpse an interesting summary, an intriguing or refreshing opening paragraph, and I convince myself it will be just one more hit…I can handle it! 🙂 Here is a quick look at three stories that I was recently powerless to resist…

True Confessions of a Coffee Girl by Deebelle1 

banner made by Deebelle1

banner made by Deebelle1

True Confessions of a Coffee Girl ~ A perfect cafe au lait was all it took for Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor to fall in love with me…the coffee girl.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 9 – Words: 20,001 – Reviews: 630 – Favs: 460 – Follows: 940 – Updated: Nov 26 – Published: Nov 1 – id: 9812023

I’m sure you have guessed it from the summary above that Bella is the lucky coffee girl, and Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor is Edward, admittedly, one of the reasons I was drawn to this fic. Perhaps I should describe Edward as lucky too, as he hit the jackpot in his personal life by placing an order for a special cup of coffee.  Bella is a creative college student who also takes her job as a barista seriously; she is intelligent, independent, quirky, and as warm as the sweet muffins she serves.  Let’s see how she captures Actorward’s eye as she literally falls hard for him…

BPOV
A couple of other early risers and a few regulars came and went. I was singing along with Adele when a throat cleared behind me and caused me to jump. My foot caught on one of the mats and I fell to the ground, shrieking the whole way down.

“Are you okay?” an intense baritone voice asked.

“Yeah,” I laughed. “Happens to me all the time. Just another day in the life of a graceless swan.”

Even though I could laugh at the situation I found myself in, I couldn’t prevent the rush of blood to my skin when I looked up at the witness to my clumsiness. When our eyes met, I was lost. He was devastatingly handsome.

Mossy green eyes accompanied the sexiest voice I’d ever heard next to Vin Diesel’s. That man’s voice could melt the panties or boxers off anyone. I was confident of that. As I stood, I took in the rest of the most beautiful man I’d ever seen.

Besides those gorgeous peepers that were encased by thick eyebrows, he had a jaw line that begged to be licked. It was covered with a couple of day’s worth of whiskers that were a few shades lighter than his milk chocolate brows. His nose was crooked and had most likely been broken more than once, but it just added to his beauty. His lips were a natural and soft pink. They were plump and oh-so-kissable.

He was wearing an old and holey, but obviously loved, black t-shirt and a pair of wrinkled blue jeans. A baseball cap covered his unruly locks, and he was tall; taller than I expected him to be. But above all that, he was none other than Edward Cullen: actor extraordinaire and GQ’s most eligible bachelor. Everyone and their grandma wanted to date him. The man was sex personified…and he had just witnessed me making a fool out of myself.

It wasn’t like I even considered myself in his league. I wasn’t ugly by any means; I considered myself to be pretty average. But I wasn’t going to be walking the catwalk anytime. Like, ever. At just over five feet tall and add in my inability to walk a straight line, you would never see me on the runway, not that I wanted to be up there anyway.

After my blatant perusal of his body, I met his eyes again; the smirk on his face definitely didn’t help the blush on my face lessen. “What can I get for you?”

“I’ll have a large nonfat café au lait.”

….And so it begins.  Edward is swoon inducing!  This “mama’s boy” even brings his mother in to the coffeehouse to meet Bella – how sweet is that?  The playful banter and teasing between Coffee Girl and Eddie is fun to read as they fall hard and fast for each other.  To date, they have only shared kisses.  Actually, that’s a poor turn of phrase to use, as there is nothing only about those amazing, toe-curling, sensual kisses.

According to Deebelle1, “This is mainly a fluffy romance. There will be small bits of angst but it’s not drawn out…I’m an angst wimp, too. You’ll have a little bit of everything, but overall it’s just a good old fashion romance.”  Those last four words from the author explain why I’m enjoying this story so much – I raise my skinny latte to toast good old fashion romance!

Oh, and Deebelle1 worked as a coffee girl in LA and met many stars in her time. She mentions a star at the start of each chapter, revealing what kind of customer they were, and we’ve certainly learned some interesting tidbits, such as in chapter two, “Today’s Hollywood star is Neil Patrick Harris…aka The Dick.” lol These personal anecdotes certainly add a nice touch to the story…just like a happy face in coffee foam!

As the lovely actress/singer Kristin Chenoweth tells us, “…love can be yours if you step up to the counter and order…”  So, what are you waiting for?

Easy as Pie by Edward’s Eternal

*Made by Edward's Eternal*

*Made by Edward’s Eternal*

Easy as Pie ~ Edward Masen: successful actor, admired by many, desired by thousands; he had everything he could have possibly wanted, except … happiness. One night, while trying to escape his crazy life, he literally made a “right” turn, which led him to Little Bell. Could finding that happiness really be as easy as pie?

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 5 – Words: 19,150 – Reviews: 1,182 – Favs: 890 – Follows: 1,340 – Updated: 11h ago – Published: Nov 13 – id: 9842447

This is another Actorward I am currently enjoying very much. Bella is a student making ends meet by baking and waitressing in “Easy as Pie”, and Edward is a famous actor in need of a break.

Now, on the face of it you might consider this and the storyline above to be similar, but honestly, apart from their occupations and initial meeting, these stories are as different as lemon meringue pie from strawberry rhubarb crumble. It’s a completely different kettle of fish, or in this case, plate of pie.

When pie-loving Edward “literally made a ‘right’ turn” and walked in the door of the small coffee shop, “Easy as Pie”, he was in dire need of a break from his regimented life…“ Away from the world of Edward Masen and everything it represented.”

EPOV

I stopped at a corner, waiting for the light, when a mouth-watering aroma filled the air. I glanced to the right and saw a small coffee shop with the sign Easy as Pie lit up in the window.

Pie. I loved pie. I really loved pie.

I never got to eat pie anymore. Apparently, refined sugar would be the death of me; at least according to the personal trainer the studio insisted I needed for my next role, who designed a hell-on-earth daily routine I was supposed to be following religiously. Now my diet consisted of vegetables, fruit, and fish. I was hungry all the time and lately had been questioning why I had agreed to do this next role. I snuck in the occasional sandwich because, really, how bad could a sandwich be for you? I snorted, remembering James’ reaction to that innocent remark. Really bad, it would seem. At least his fifteen minute speech about dedication and sacrifice for the part, seemed to indicate that.

But I missed dairy. Bread. Pasta. Meat. And pie.

I hesitated; James wasn’t here right now and I wanted pie. I really wanted pie.

After all, I was going to hell anyway. Might as well do it thoroughly.

I headed toward the small diner and stepped inside, breathing in deeply. My mouth instantly began to water. I walked to the back and sat in a secluded, corner booth, grabbing up a menu and burying my face in it. After a few minutes I looked around. The place was fairly deserted, with only a few tables taken and once again, no one was looking at me. I sighed and put the down the menu, taking in my surroundings. Clean and warm, there were bookshelves along one wall with a sign over them saying ‘Help Yourself While You’re Here’, a long counter with stools opposite it, and the rest of the restaurant was tables and booths like the one I was sitting in. Curious, I got up and perused the shelves. Grinning, I grabbed a book I had been meaning to read and sat back down. I had just opened up the cover when a gentle voice startled me.

“Coffee?”

I looked up into the deepest brown eyes I had ever seen. They were warm and welcoming as they gazed at me and I waited for the sure widening that would happen when they recognized who I was, but it never came. Instead they remained warm and kind. They were framed by long lashes and as I looked into them I had the overwhelming sense of something inside me settling into place. A small voice in my head said the word home, and I was mystified because of it, trying to figure out why that had happened. Suddenly, I noticed the furrow appear between those lovely eyes and I realized I had been staring and not speaking for far too long.

Blinking, I cleared my throat and smiled warily at girl in front of me. “Please.”

Her answering smile was wide. “Anything else?”

“You have pie?”

Her smile got wider. “Not just any pie. Real homemade pies. Best in the city. I just took one out of the oven.”

How could I resist that?

He may have meant the pie that time, but it’s not long before he also cannot resist the baker…Bella. She is a hard working, very sweet, talented girl, struggling to overcome the difficult hand life has dealt her. He is struggling to cope with his lifestyle – that of a megastar and heartthrob – and Bella blows a breath of fresh air in his stuffy and controlled world; she becomes his catalyst for change.  Their emotions run deep very quickly…falling for each other is as easy as pie, but the reality they are soon forced to face is anything but.  Have no fear about the future as Edward’s Eternal assures us she believes in HEA for Little Bell and Pie Guy.

Go on, don’t try to resist…serve yourself a large helping of this delicious story.

Another Love by sparklymeg

Another Love ~ “Edward had it all… until he didn’t.” My entry for the 2013 TLS Angst Contest. Winner of Best HEA. Now expanding into a multichapter fic. 

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Angst – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 6 – Words: 24,108 – Reviews: 135 – Favs: 143 – Follows: 331 – Updated: 18h ago – Published: Aug 22 – id: 9619625

IMHO it takes a special kind of story to be named the Best HEA in an angst contest, and that’s what we have right here ladies…a special kind of story.  Another Love captivated me in the contest and I can’t tell you how pleased I am that it is being continued.

I’m not going to tell you anything at all about the premise as that would only take away from your pleasure of slowly discovering it yourself. I will tell you, though, that this unique, beautifully told story will make you feel; it will pull at your heartstrings and make you smile, I know, for that’s what it did to me.

Another Love is told from EPOV, in the present, in dream sequences and in flashbacks. Sparklymeg made me feel as though I lived through each one of those moments – and all the intense emotions to go along with them – with Edward, and now I can’t wait to experience his future.

Here is a spoiler-free peek at Edward…

EPOV October 2005

I wander back into the living room, beer in hand, and ponder how I can get people to leave. It’s almost midnight, and I have to be up really early.

Okay, yeah. I definitely am a party pooper.

I’m almost knocked off my feet when a hard body stumbles into me. I steady myself to find Emmett McCarty, high, drunk, or both, wrapping his arms around me.

“Cullen! You made it man!”

Why do people keep saying that to me? Am I that obvious?

Emmett and I do the loose, side, male hug thing and he starts prattling on about his football game last week. I’m not really paying any attention though, because I’m distracted by a commotion on the other side of the room.

That smarmy fucker, James, from my Ethics in Education class, has some poor girl pressed against the window frame, his hands wandering down the sides of her body. She looks uncomfortable, her head moving from side to side. I realize he’s trying to kiss her and she’s resisting.

I’m over there before I even realize I have moved, my hand firm on his shoulder, pulling him away.

“Hey man, I don’t think she’s interested.”

James stumbles, and looks up at me. He’s glassy eyed, intoxicated, and his features twist into an expression of sheer confusion. Recognition dawns on his face, and he straightens up.

“She with you, man?”

“Yeah, she is, so back off.”

Wait, what?

The words tumble out of my mouth before I realize what I’m saying. In my peripheral vision I can see the girls eyes widening, and I hear a breath catch in her throat.

James mumbles something incoherent and stumbles away.

I turn back; only to be faced with one of the most beautiful girls I have ever laid eyes on.

Huh.

Guess this party won’t be so bad after all.

Imagine the scene, you’ve had a bad day…don’t want to go home just yet…maybe a little company will help…perhaps a tasty drink. The warmth and anonymity of a bar…a warm pair of eyes, a trustworthy smile, a sympathetic ear, maybe a sexy ass…ohhhhh! *fans self* Who needs alcohol when Barward is on duty?

And the world just became a better place; heart lightened, smile in place, you’re ready to party and celebrate life!

The Right Guy by ThatEnglishWriter

The Right Guy ~ Bella always finds the wrong guy. The one who can’t satisfy her, ahem, needs. The one who really wants her best friend, Rosalie. But even if she never finds the Right Guy, there’s always a glass of wine and the sympathetic ear of Edward, her faithful barman.

Twilight, M, English, Romance & Humor, chapters: 10, words: 19k+, favs: 858, follows: 570, updated: Dec 28, 2012 published: Nov 25, 2012, Bella, Edward Complete

Looking for a kind, patient Edward? The kind who watches, waits, bides his time? All the while seeing the lovely Bella make mistake after mistake, often finding great hilarity in her ability to attract the wrong guy. Have no fear though, Bella is no wanton hussy, she’s just a friendly, if somewhat naïve girl who finds herself in a more than a few awkward situations. This is a lovely short-ish fic that will make you smile all the way through and warm your heart.

Edward is, of course, tending his bar when they meet and become the best of friends. He fulfills both roles of friend and the discreet all-knowing, all-seeing barman, so he is privy to all her deepest secrets. They clearly adore each other, but she just doesn’t see HIM. Until she does. *sigh*

Edward looked down at the books again, scratching the scruff on his chin. He hadn’t shaved in a couple of days.

“I don’t think that there’s anything wrong with that. It doesn’t make you shallow; it’s just not what you want for yourself. If you’re serious about a guy, you want him to be serious about you too and serious about your future together. Maybe a guy who has yet to move out of his parent’s house and get a full-time job isn’t serious enough for a woman like you. There’s someone better out there for him.”

“And me?”

“And definitely someone better for you.” He smiled, his eyes on mine. “The right guy could be right under your nose.”

I smiled, feeling much better with myself as a person.

“Thanks Edward. This is why you own a bar. You’re full of worldly wisdom and have a sympathetic ear.” I took another fry and Edward sighed heavily, pushing the bowl towards me.

The Right Guy is a feel good story, and let’s face it, we all know where this is going, but the getting-there is charming, sweet, funny and will cheer any afternoon.

Despite him being dark and often brooding, there is something about Edward that gets under her skin, makes her want to know more. Edward definitely wants to know everything about Bella, but there are inner demons that he’s scared will be unleashed should he take that step…so he remains aloof. Luckily others around him notice and decide to force the issue.

I moved over to the raised merch section in the back of the bar, so I could get a bird’s eye view. I met Bella’s eyes as she stood off to the side, watching the show. It was getting towards the end of the set and the drink orders tended to slow down a little. I smiled at her and she smiled back slightly, but there was reluctance there. I looked away quickly. It was fucking stupid to lust after her since I knew from her paperwork that she was not even twenty-three. I was an old man in comparison.

I took my hat off, catching a look at the word ‘suicidal’. I ran my fingers through my hair and slid it back on, facing the word behind me. It was symbolic if I really thought about it too hard.

“Hey, everything looks good. It’s been a good night. No fights, no bullshit, and a few hot women in almost nothing,” Emmett quipped as he leaned on the stool next to me. I nodded my head at him in agreement, never taking my eyes off Bella who was back to walking in the crowd.

“I noticed that you seem to be keeping a close eye on our new girl,” he commented after a short silence.

“I just want to make sure she’s doing her job. Nothing more, Em,” I said, giving him a shitty look.

“Whatever you say, Edward. Whatever you say.

Bella finds herself -and her best friend Rosalie- rapidly and wholeheartedly welcomed by the close team working at the bar, and embraced into their warm and loving ‘family’, their lives are irrevocably entwined, troubles shared. There are no doubts that they stand together, despite the challenges they face

It’s difficult not to give too much of the plot away, but one thing you’ll never doubt is that they care deeply, are loyal and their love is strong – and maybe that’s just the catalyst for Edward to resolve his issues

I love this description of Edward through Bella’s eyes…

His smell was heady and rustic, like pine and wild flowers, but completely manly despite the floral scent. It was just simply Edward, almost a contradiction. Much like the tough tattoos and soft eyes of the man himself.

There is something so touching about a seemingly tough guy being hurt and vulnerable, and this Edward will tug at your heartstrings just a little, but it’s so worth it as it makes the story end that much sweeter.

Cullen’s Roadhouse by TGBMcCray

Cullen’s Roadhouse ~ Bella Swan is adrift. She’s got a worthless college degree, bills, two friends, a shitty apartment, and too many ex-boyfriends. Swearing off men seems like a good idea, at least until she can figure out how to pour a proper beer and make some cash to get her head above water at Cullen’s Roadhouse. It’s an apron that sets her off. An apron, some Levi’s, and a tall glass of Diet Coke.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Humor/Drama – Bella – Chapters: 10 – Words: 10,431 – Reviews: 45 – Favs: 21 – Follows: 48 – Published: Nov 7 – id: 9828115 WiP

Let me introduce you to a great Bella! Bright, breezy, and with very little filter, she really is a treat to read, We meet her as she’s learning the ropes of tending bar from an older-than-usual Lauren. Cullen’s Roadhouse is a family-run establishment and although Edward is mainly behind the scenes at the bar, he definitely has a strong presence!

*Warning!* I’ve never really thought of an apron as sexy before, but OME, what a visual!!

About the time I get so frustrated that an exasperated “Fuck!” slips past my lips, I catch a glimpse of something decidedly male through the straggles of matted, stinky hair escaping my long braid. I look up from the ice, and he breezes right along the hallway.

 He’s wearing a black Cullen’s Roadhouse t-shirt, a pair of Levi’s, and a fucking apron. Really. He’s got a white apron looped low around his hips, just folded and tied around his waist like a dirty towel. His hair, a riot of gold and red and brown, but mostly red, flops into his eyes, which are – maybe brown? Green? I’m not sure, he’s flashing me a smile, and he’s gone. I watch him take the two steps down into the kitchen, his ass perfectly framed by the apron at his hips. His long fingers are curled around a Styrofoam cup in one hand, and a clipboard in the other.

If my thighs weren’t already soaked with beer and ice, I might have a problem right now. He had dimples. At least one anyway, and a smile that just lit me up and blew me out in front of God and country and Lauren.

I become aware that I’m clutching her arm when she says, “Ow. Bella?”

“Who was that?”

She rubs her arm and glances back toward the kitchen, into the din of noise where Adonis just descended. “Who, Edward? He works here, manages back of house.”

“Edward. Oh. Edward Cullen?”

“Yeah. Remember what I said –”

 My mouth is dry but my pussy is really, really wet. I don’t care how gross it sounds. It’s true. I think I may be working on a contact orgasm, but without the contact. I rasp at her, testing out if my voice still works. “Diet Coke.”

 “Yep.”

The shovel/ice spade in my hand is so cold, but it feels good because it’s so much hotter in here than it was before, and God knows it was hot then.

“Does he have a girlfriend?” I don’t care how forward I am. I want to know.

Lauren’s nose snurls. It’s universal chick body language for this shit is complicated. “Yeah. They just moved in together a few months back, I think. We don’t see her much in here. But they’re still together.”

“Not for long.”

 I don’t realize I’ve said it out loud till Lauren starts laughing but I am serious as a fucking heart attack. I know, I know I said I was through. I swore off men. I moved here, even though it was James’s fucking hometown, and I swore him and Jacob and all of them off, but fuck.

Edward Cullen looks sexy as sin in an apron.

I have to have him.

You know she’s going to make good on that, but in the meantime I’m enjoying seeing the cast of slightly OOC characters, who bring depth and pathos to the story. Only ten chapters in, this WiP is one worth watching for its originality, and to see if Bella, her southern accent, daisy dukes and tempting ways can beguile Edward. I’m hopeful, in fact, I don’t think he stands a chance…!

BARMAN

When Wiltshire Glo proposed the idea of a Barward post, I admit he was not one I thought of as being a favourite Ward, but that all changed once I recalled all the brilliant Barward fics I’d previously read and enjoyed.  How had I forgotten just how sweet and sexy some of the Barwards and their stories are?

*Goes off to fantasyland where I’m the one in Bella’s shoes*

Sigh!

Can you imagine the temptation you would be faced with when Barward leans suggestively across the highly-polished bar, gives you one of his patented sexy smirks and asks, “what’s your pleasure?”  Be honest now, can any one of you put your hand on heart and say you would resist asking for a naughty sounding cocktail?  I know I wouldn’t!  I suspect I may go so far as to beg for order positions cocktails such as a ‘Long, Hard Screw Against the Wall’ or a ‘Screaming Orgasm’…preferably both together! LOL

So, peruse the menu below ladies…and enjoy!

One Bartender, Shaken and Stirred ~ Winner of the Public Vote in the Curvaceous & Bodacious Contest – thank you for your votes! Collab w/Iadorepugs-Edward Cullen owns the popular nightclub Eclipse where image is supposedly everything. When plus-sized Bella Swan is drafted into helping out at Eclipse what will they both learn about images? One Shot

The shaken and stirred bartender in question here is hot and intense, there is no denying it, but for me, it’s Bella who makes this a great fic. Why? She is curvaceous and bodacious, and beautiful both inside and out.  She is confident, comfortable in her own skin, witty…feisty even.  As they are short-staffed, Alice, one of Edward’s partners at Eclipse, persuades Bella to work waiting tables at the nightclub…  Narrow minded Edward likes a certain look for his staff – “super skinny supermodel types with perfect figures” – something Bella is not!

BPOV

I took a deep breath, glad that I was pissed, otherwise I would be drooling as usual at the sight of the Greek God in front of me. He had to be one of the most handsome men I’d ever seen, with reddish-brown hair that was messy and wild, combined with lush emerald green eyes that studied me speculatively. He was tall, over six feet, with broad shoulders and muscular arms that were showcased by the black tee shirt he wore. But no matter now good looking he was, I didn’t appreciate his attitude towards me when I was here to do a favor for him.

Don’t worry that Edward appears to be a bit of an Assward at the beginning; all is not as it seems and by the end he more than redeems himself. 😉

Gravity by Coldplaywhore

Gravity ~ What happens when Edward, a handsome bartender, offers Bella a shoulder to cry on after a rough day at work and discovers they have more in common than they thought? For SassyK. Fandom Gives Back One-Shot. Rated M for dirty dirty things.

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Friendship – Chapters: 1 – Words: 7,209 – Reviews: 150 – Published: 1-7-10 – Edward, Bella

Edward enjoys a quiet life and doesn’t like to rock the boat so tending bar in Black, “an unassuming joint”, a few blocks away from the University of Washington Medical Center, suits him perfectly…

EPOV

My favorite patrons were usually the nurses who came in from the hospital after a long shift, and there were several that I had struck up interesting friendships with over the two years I had worked there. There were the flirty nurses like Tanya, Jessica and Lauren, who even though they all steady boyfriends, didn’t seem to hesitate in asking me out. I never dated a patron though; it just wasn’t worth my time or aggravation since Charlotte frowned on any of her employees dating customers. However, that wasn’t completely true because there was one frequent visitor to the bar I would consider dating, but she never once showed any signs of interest in me, much to my frustration.

The frequent customer who stars in both his dreams and daydreams is Bella, a pediatric nurse…

Usually when they were at Black, I spent a little too much time watching Bella. Well, a little too much to be considered healthy for a normal man, but I couldn’t help it. She was beautiful. Bella had big round chocolate colored eyes that worked in perfect harmony with her long brown hair that she usually kept in a ponytail. Some nights when she came in, she would pull the elastic from her hair and shake it out, letting it fall down her back as my pants found themselves getting rather snug from the sight. It was on those nights that I thanked god that I was behind the bar, because there was nothing more stunning then Bella with her hair down.

Eventually Edward’s policy of being “willing to listen” pays off much better than he ever expected, gravity will not be denied, and so the owner’s policy of no fraternising with the customers is thrown out with the slops.  This Gravity cocktail is sweet, hot, romantic – enjoy!

Olympic Rain and Novocain by AddiCakes

Olympic Rain and Novocain ~ A waitress’s pain, a bartender’s secrets, & one fateful night. “The silken lilt flowing from his flawless lips envelopes her…soothes her…rocks her gently back and forth…until the tingly sensation fades into numbness. Numb. Like Novocain.” AH

Rated: Fiction M – English – Angst/Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 30 – Words: 81,468 – Reviews: 1,331 – Favs: 1,047 – Follows: 597 – Updated: Feb 28, 2010 – Published: Aug 5, 2009 – Status: Complete – id: 5276294

Olympic Rain and Novocain is a beautifully written, moving story of that I read a few years back, and have not forgotten. As AddiCakes says “If you’re in the mood for some angst and dark secrets mixed with romance & sexual tension, please give my little story a try. I promise you will not be disappointed!” I know I wasn’t!

Bella is a lonely soul from Mississippi working as a diner waitress and living in Forks with her police chief father.  Perhaps residing in Forks would be a more accurate description as she is not living, merely existing; she is sad, depressed and is hiding from life.  Her relationship with Charlie is pretty miserable and I could have cried for Bella when he forgot her 19th birthday, though paradoxically, that turns out to be the best thing he ever did for her. She decided to spend the night out doing whatever she wanted, in a different town, with different people—a little birthday indulgence.

BPOV

Engine rattle and radio static are all that keep her company as she makes the hour-long drive east on the one-oh-one. It does not matter that she’ll probably end up standing by herself in the corner of the club. It also does not matter that she’ll be forced to wear one of those orange bracelets signifying she’s underage. What does matter is that the few remaining hours of her nineteenth birthday are not spent listening to her father’s snoring.

How I admire both her bravery and her attitude!

Movement on the stage rescues Bella from sinking any further into a miserable reverie. She eyes the young bartender stepping into plain sight, a barstool in one hand and a guitar in the other. A spotlight shines from the floor, illuminating his lean, yet muscular, form. He is tall—six feet, at least. His attire is casual, a navy blue t-shirt, dark jeans and black Converse sneakers. His short sleeves reveal the sinewy definition in his arms as he adjusts the mic stand to his liking. He runs a nervous hand through his untidy brown hair—or perhaps, it’s auburn. She can’t be certain in this lighting.

The distracted audience fails to take notice of him until they hear the tweaking of his guitar strings. More heads turn in attention when he clears his throat. But as for Bella Swan, she is captivated by him long before he croons the first verse…

And so Bella discovers her Novocain…her own personal brand of heroin…Edward!  I wish I could say ‘and they all lived happily ever after’ at this point, but I can’t.  Temporary solutions to pain are just that – temporary.  Bella and Edward, for he has his own secret to confront, have growing to do. Their initial friendship develops into a relationship as they travel down the road of forgiveness, reconciliation and acceptance of their pasts that cannot be changed.

Set aside a few hours for reading this as once you start, you won’t want to stop.

*Banner by Jaime Arkin*

Sandstone Cove ~ I came here looking for some rest, some relaxation…some downtime. I never expected to find anything else. I certainly never expected to find him. Written for Marvar’s birthday because I love her. Rated M for reasons.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 19 – Words: 14,259 – Reviews: 1,322 – Favs: 605 – Follows: 434 – Updated: Aug 3 – Published: Aug 2 – Status: Complete – id: 9555470

It’s no secret that the legendary Cosmogirl7481 writes the best birthday presents for her beta and bestie, Marvar, and we, her loyal readers, are the lucky ones to also reap the benefits! I’ve been a Cosmo fan for quite some time now; read just about every word she’s written, and Barward, in Sandstone Cove, is simply another reason why I enjoy her stories so much. This romantic Edward, who will make you swoon and fan yourself with his sweet, sometimes dirty words and sexy demeanor, is swept into Bella’s vacation world with the waves of a sandy tide…

I can feel the soft, worn wood under my legs as I sit on the railing of the boardwalk. The sun is just now rising over the ocean – vivid flecks of yellow, pink, and just a hint of lavender fill the horizon that seems so far off, and yet, I feel as if I could reach out and touch it.

And just like the colors, everything seems hazy.

I came here looking for some rest, some relaxation…some downtime.

I never expected to find anything else.

I certainly never expected to find him.

…I hear his voice behind me. “I thought I’d find you here.”

He presses up against my back and his arms wrap around my waist as he pulls me against his warm, bare chest. Everything about this – about him – is soft and hard and fucking perfect. I don’t even try to fight it. I melt against him as the sun bathes us both in its warmth. He holds me steady as I push against him, and even though I know he has to let me go, right now he doesn’t.

He won’t.

As the wind whips my hair around the both of us, I turn my head back, looking up at him, and say, “You didn’t find me here, Edward. I found you.”

The smooth ebb and flow of this complete, 19 chapter story, from the beautiful beach and resort setting that is romantic and relaxing, to the friendly bartender and his welcoming family, will leave you captivated and wanting to be at Sandstone Cove yourself. Bella “just needed a little downtime” to escape her stressful and complicated life at home, and Barward, while serving up “Sex on the Beach” also offers her more than a good drink, as he leads her to reevaluate her life and responsibilities. And you never know, as a wise cabbie told Bella when she arrived: “This is the closest thing to paradise I’ve ever found. You might just decide not to leave.” I wonder if Bella did indeed make this decision? Well, you’ll just have to check into the Ocean View Resort to find out. Oh, and don’t forget your sunscreen…Barward is on drink and sunscreen duty! *wink* Enjoy!

*Let us know if you made this.*

Paper CutOuts ~ Bella prefers the virtual to the actual, but feels herself being tugged from the safety of her online realm into the world of a rough edged Edward. This time she’ll write her own story. Collab with astilbe13 AH/AU

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Angst – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 34 – Words: 136,587 – Reviews: 10,068 – Favs: 5,753 – Follows: 3,532 – Updated: Feb 16, 2011 – Published: May 24, 2010 – Status: Complete – id: 5993964

I am showing my Twi-Fic age here, but I read Paper CutOuts when it was a mere WIP, and it is one of those stories that stays with you long after the last word is read. I personally think the best thing about the story is how real it feels – not just the storyline, but the characters of Edward and Bella.  Neither are perfect, but that just seems to make them better.

Instead of telling you about Bella’s life before she meets Edward, I think I will let her tell you… (Chapter One)

“There are no highlights in the story of my life, no cliff hangers, no nail biting moments. Everything drones on like the predictable beat of a metronome, no down beats or flourishes. My parents seem to think that this is the their ultimate gift to me. They call it comfort, stability. I call it hell.

It can’t be completely blamed on them. I have been easily led down this path. Every time I had the chance to stick a toe out of line, I’ve gone chicken shit and recoiled back to the familiar. So, I’ve been the bystander. I watched as my friends took risks, stuck out their necks, handed out their hearts, all while I seethed with jealousy.

I sigh as my pen taps out a simple beat against the cheap vinyl of my cubicle desk. At least I’m next to a window. Not something I fought for, just a simple coincidence that the lucky bastard I replaced passed down to me. My phone beeps incessantly at me and I exhale slowly, narrowing my eyes at the black box. I pull the receiver to my ear and try to sound awake.

“Good afternoon, I’m calling to tell you about the amazing results you can get with….” My voice drones on as I wait for the familiar dial tone. I am that person. The scum who calls at the worst time and tries to con you into signing up for a pill that will in no way make you look like Jennifer Aniston, but will be emptying your bank account slowly, as you forget you are being billed monthly.

As you can see, Bella is not really fulfilling her potential, but she starts to when she meets Edward, who owns the bar close to Bella’s work.  After a bit of a disastrous first meeting with Bella nearly cracking her head open on Edward’s bar, this seemingly mismatched couple strike up a friendship which eventually leads to more.  Of course, in all this is Edward’s son, Finn – who is one of the most delightful children I have read in Fan Fic.  He is a shining star in this story, as is Edward’s boundless love for him. *Sigh – Daddyward! Yum*

There are rough patches in this story where Bella and Edward are carving out their future, but the angst is perfectly balanced with lightness in this story – there are many giggle out-loud moments, as well as the moments where you reach for the Kleenex – it truly is wonderful!

Your Life Can Change in a Moment by coloradoperson

storyjpg-1

Your Life Can Change in a Moment ~ Bella didn’t like surprises. Her life was safe, predictable and she knew what to expect until fate brought her breast cancer and everything changed. This is not a tragedy; it’s a story about love and hope..because that’s what life is all about.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Drama/Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 29 – Words: 64,855 – Reviews: 556 – Favs: 512 – Follows: 243 – Updated: 07-01-12 – Published: 12-30-11 – Status: Complete – id: 7692657

Have you ever started reading a fic that touched you so deeply you had to stop reading and go get a box of tissues? Well, I have, and this is it… This Doctorward story truly moved me, in ways I know I cannot properly articulate so you’ll understand just how much I was affected by this touching and inspirational story. The author is a two-time breast cancer survivor and she has shared her difficult and inspiring journey through Bella and our favourite Twilight characters.

If you read the summary, you will see that Your Life Can Change in a Moment by coloradoperson is a story about love, life, courage and hope…it is not a tragedy, but that’s not to say it isn’t heart-wrenching and very sad at times. *cue tissue box*

The story begins when we meet a 26-year-old Bella with breast cancer, who tells us a bit about her life today, while reminiscing about the love of a lifetime, once lost… We learn that Bella and Edward were high school sweethearts, but when Edward went off to college, a year ahead of Bella, he made a life-altering, drunk mistake, leaving both of them heartbroken with an irreparable relationship. They sadly go their separate ways for the better part of ten years; Bella went on to become a second grade teacher in Seattle, Edward a doctor in Chicago. But after years apart they are brought back together – by fate? – when Bella walks into the breast cancer support group and sees it’s being led, by none other than Esme Cullen – Edward’s mother. After reconnecting with this special woman and Edward’s estranged family, Bella learns Edward is moving back home to Seattle, and the rest, as they say, is history…

As I stood there and watched Bella, I thought about the last time she walked away, right out of my life.

I knew I couldn’t let that happen, not again.

I was shaking and barely breathing as I caught up to her. I was close enough to touch her when I said her name again, softly, and she stopped.

Everything changed the moment she turned around and looked at me. My life changed as we stood there, looking at each other. It was such a quiet moment. There was no one else in that hospital lobby except us. She was crying when she took a step toward me and touched my face. I cried when she whispered my name, and all I heard was happiness. I put my arms around her and pulled her close to me. We didn’t kiss. There were no words or whispers of love or regret. It seemed to be enough for both of us, just being next to each other again. I don’t know how long we stood there. It could have been just seconds or minutes, but it was long enough to know I was where I belonged for the first time in eight years. It was long enough to know where fate was leading me.

Along with the strong, supportive and unwavering love between Edward and Bella through this incredibly tough journey, one of the most touching connections made is between Bella and Angela – also a young woman battling breast cancer. They bond over their shared struggle and all the awful realities it entails, but also over their shared passion to live life to its fullest. They will make you laugh, cry and really appreciate the life you are blessed with every day.

Whether your life has been touched by breast cancer, in some way, shape or form, or not, this story will affect you; I can almost guarantee it. Each chapter begins with an enlightening quote, either from comedian, actress and cancer casualty Gilda Radner, or the movie Enchanted – Bella’s all-time favourite movie because…

Chapter Two. Now.

Giselle: [after leaving the shower] Good morning, Robert. I hope you had wonderful dreams.

Robert Philip: I think I’m still in one.

From the movie Enchanted

[EPOV]

I laughed out loud when I read my wife’s text message.

Bella and Enchanted – a match made in heaven. She still insists that Enchanted was made just for her. Well, maybe it was. Who the hell knows? I believe anything is possible these days. I don’t know how many times she’s watched that movie. I don’t know how many times I’ve watched it with her, but it’s enough to know all the lines and most of the song lyrics. I know there’s a line in that movie that had something to do with us getting together as soon as we did, but I can’t figure out what it is, and she won’t tell me. I kid her about her love affair with this movie, but I do get it. I get why she loves it. Fate, love and magical moments – it pretty much sums us up.

This makes me smile, as I remember all the greatness of this story.  Yes, it is an emotional read, but definitely worth your time, as it is written from the heart of the author: “A/N – I love fanfic, and I’ve always wanted to write a story. They say you should write about what you know in your first story, and what I know is breast cancer. Maybe breast cancer is too real, but hope, courage and love, especially love, are also real, and that’s really what this story is all about.” And, if you do choose to bless yourself with reading Your-Life-Can-Change-in-a-Moment, please take a moment and visit this link below; to see the banner, Bella and Edward’s cottage and Denver Komen Race for the Cure pictures (where we meet the author) that are all incorporated into this incredibly affecting and memorable story.

Once Upon a Stormy Night  by TwilightMommyof4girls

Umm...  that is just gorgeous...

Umm… that is just gorgeous…

Once Upon a Stormy Night ~ Dr. Isabella Swan is on her way across the country for a job interview in Seattle. Read what happens when she gets stranded in a strange city in the middle of a blizzard. 

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Family – Bella – Chapters: 20 – Words: 123,952 – Reviews: 677 – Favs: 1,002 – Follows: 349 – Updated: Jan 12, 2010 – Published: Aug 18, 2009 – Status: Complete – id: 5309326

Doctor Isabella Swan is an unlucky woman on the face of things in the first chapter of Once Upon a Stormy Night – she is stranded in a strange city in a blizzard, all the accommodation is taken and for the life of her, she can’t find a restaurant.  She happens upon a bar, and suddenly it seems her luck has changed when she strikes up a conversation (and a powerful connection) with a fellow Doctor with gorgeous green eyes…

Excerpt from Chapter 1…

“We fell into a sweaty pile of limbs, both struggling to catch our breaths. I tried to regain some sense of sanity, realizing what had just happened. I lost my virginity. 

Edward didn’t seem to notice my internal struggle as he was soon snoring, with his body intertwined with mine.

What the hell do I do now?

I lay there for a while, considering my options. If I left, this could all be a dream. No awkward moments, just a wonderful memory. If I stayed, there would be the awkward morning silence. Would he ask me to leave? Would he try to be polite until I had to get on the plane? I couldn’t face that, I couldn’t face him, so I snuck out from his arms and rolled off the bed. I grabbed his shirt quickly threw it on, dashing for the bathroom.”

Oh yes, the girl does a runner.  From Edward Cullen, no less!  *Shakes head with despair* Well, to be honest when our Bella leaves that room she doesn’t know she has run from Edward Cullen or where he even lives.  Never fear, though, our beloved bronze-haired God is not out of the story for long.

I won’t say too much more, as I don’t want to give the plot away – but suffice to say, the road has a few twists and turns, including professional and personal connections for Dr Swan that link her to Dr Cullen before she even knows it, but they end up where they were always meant to be… With each other.

Come Undone ~ She took a risk that left her with nothing. How do you tell someone to come home when you’re the one who sent them away? How does Bella break the news to her ex-husband that the baby she’s carrying is his? *1st place winner in Beautiful Bellies Contest*

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Angst – Bella, Edward – Words: 13,237 – Reviews: 194 – Favs: 681 – Follows: 266 – Published: Jun 9, 2011 – Status: Complete – id: 7063265

For those of you who don’t know, I also go by the name of “Queen of the Angsty One Shot”… I love them and the little gem I have today is one of my very favourites.

Come Undone is a beautifully told story about Bella who has recently ended her 20 plus year marriage to her childhood sweetheart, Edward.

“Closing my eyes, I tried my best to let my exhaustion take me under and allow me to just forget for a little while what a mess I made of my life. However, my brain wouldn’t turn off. The mistakes I made over the last few months crashed over me, causing more tears to fall. 

If only…

If I had just…

I should have…

I could have…

There were a million different ways things could have gone. But ultimately, my stubbornness and my husband’s pride led us here.”

Before you all kill me, this is not the end of the road for these two, who clearly love each other beyond words.

This story is really a lesson in how even the deepest of loves can falter when pride and epic stubbornness come into play.  I have read “Come Undone” several times and it never fails to make me an emotional mess – but you know I love it when that happens!  Enjoy!

The Nightingale Journals by kimpy

*Made by pkitten21*

The Nightingale Journals ~ Night nurse Bella Swan blogs about her experiences via “The Nightingale Journals.” When Dr. Edward Cullen is named the PICU’s newest Fellow, their attraction is undeniable, but can they remain professional? Epic banter and tensions result.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 41 – Words: 231,945 – Reviews: 3,374 – Favs: 2,632 – Follows: 1,799 – Updated: Feb 17, 2012 – Published: Feb 9, 2010 – Status: Complete – id: 5731421

Docward is one of my favourite ~wards, which is quite strange because I have a medical phobia. A phobia so deep-seated, I’ve actually been in therapy for it for about a year. When I started reading The Nightingale Journals I had just begun this journey into my psyche, and parts of the story became a stepping stone on the long road to recovery. That’s how good this fic is. It’s the ultimate medicine, served up in a huge spoonful of sugar – and by sugar, I mean feverishly hot sex, but you knew that, didn’t you? You pervy lot! 🙂

We begin the story when Bella is a trainee nurse and Edward is in medical school. We only get brief glimpses into the early years, and the story really gets into its stride when Edward takes up a Fellowship position in the PICU of his father’s hospital, where Bella is employed as a nurse:

“Good morning, Nurse Swan.”

“Dr. Cullen, you know you’re the only one who can get away with calling me that…and only because you say it in that lovely accent of yours. What are you doing here so early? I usually don’t get the privilege of seeing you before my shift is over.”

He laughs heartily at my comment. I turn around to face him, and suddenly, it’s as though I was hit by a cement block.

Edward Cullen? The fuckhot son of the fuckhot daddy!

“To answer your question, I’m making the rounds this morning in lieu of Dr. McCarty to introduce our new PICU Fellow, Dr. Cullen, to everyone on the floor.”

“Oh, that’s right. I heard something about the new Fellow starting this week.” I have to act ignorant, because otherwise I might let it slip out just how fuckhot I find Edward Cullen to be.

God, I remember him as a resident. His biceps always showed so nicely, poking out of his sleeves. His hair was always just schmexed. Even then, I wanted him, as inappropriate as that would have been. Time has been very, very good to you both, Drs. Cullen.

Edward Cullen looks me straight in the eyes and I feel lightheaded. He’s impossibly good looking, and he flashes this killer grin at me. I remember it perfectly, he lifts one side of his mouth into a smile, so it’s all crooked, and it is equal parts playful and smoldering.

Damn, those eyes. I forgot how green they are. Perfect and rare, just like every last bit of him.

“Now, it was important to me to introduce Dr. Cullen myself, to fend off any rumors of nepotism. There was a selection process that we used, and blindly rated the candidates. It just so happens that my son came up with the highest score, and thus he was offered the job.”

“You must be really proud. He’ll be following in your footsteps, starting in the PICU just like you did!”

“Indeed I am, Bellar,” he slides my name out with his adorable accent. “But don’t let him off easily; I expect you to challenge him, like you do to everyone else.”

“I promise that I will make his life interminably difficult, just for you, Dr. Cullen.”

“Good! He needs to learn from the best nurses we have!”

“Carlisle Cullen, you are so full of BS! I’m sure you use that accent of yours to get whatever you want!”

“I can speak from experience; he is especially slippery when it comes to convincing my mother to do his bidding.”

“You know, Edward, I could stop introducing you at any time.”

“All right, Dad. Point taken. It was nice to meet you, Nurse Swan.”

“Oh god, not you, too! It’s Bella! I don’t want to have to get violent with you, now!”

He just smiles and gives me his signature smirk, and the two of them get on their way.

Shit, I’m going to be in big trouble with that hot piece of ass hanging around here. How the fuck am I supposed to ignore that?

There is a perfect burning attraction between the pair right from the start. While they experience a few pitfalls in their soon-to-be steamy relationship, the story is enriched perfectly by the stark reality of life in a paediatric intensive care unit. Some of the patient stories are heartbreaking, and the way the characters deal with them feels realistic and human; but don’t let the heartbreak put you off. Nightingale Journals are filled with as much love, joy and faith as they are trial by fate.

I secretly (or not so secretly any more!) feel very self-satisfied by Kimpy’s slight obsession with a particular kind of uncut peen – and that’s all I’m going to say about that. But now you have to go and find out what I’m talking about, don’t you? *evil grin; raised eyebrow* Enjoy!

Bellar… Bellar! (That was Dr Carlisle Cullen, by the way). There’s just one thing, and I have to say this, so please forgive me Kimpy. The bit about England and castles and Lordships towards the end requires a rather large pinch of salt. Suspend your disbelief, Europeans, just for a little while. There’s plenty of sugar to make up for it.

Thorn in my Pride

Thorn in my Pride ~ The Bible says the sins of the fathers shall be visited upon the sons and that pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. Edward, Bella, Carlisle and the rest of the family are about to have these notions tested. Sequel to Sometimes Salvation in the Eye of the Storm. A/H Rated M for content.

Sometimes Salvation (complete) and Thorn in My Pride (WiP – at least, I hope so…) are the kind of undiscovered gems that make random mining parties through fanfic.net so worthwhile.

The plot of these stories is so rich, it’s quite tricky to explain anything without giving too much away. Edward is a doctor, and possesses all the best attributes of Docward, but his profession isn’t the centre of the plot, except for the part where he saves Bella’s life; and he – oh dear, I’d better stop there. He is the son of Carlisle, that well-known FBI deputy director. (I’d like to know this Carlisle well *wipes brow*). Bella is a photographer, and the daughter of Charlie, who has no idea she exists until chapter one. It’s complicated!

The whole cast is finely drawn and everyone has a key role to play in the exciting crime drama both of the fics contain. The story grips you from the first paragraph, and is packed full of tension. This is the paragraph in which Edward and Bella set eyes upon each other for the first time, in chapter 3 of Sometimes Salvation:

Carlisle raised his hand to let her know they were there and all four men turned to look at her. The man beside Charlie was huge. He stood at least 6’4″ and had to be at least that broad across. He had a huge smile on his face and the way he bounced like a child was in direct contrast to the size he carried.

Bella than noticed the other man and felt her heart stop for a moment. He had to have been the most beautiful man she had ever seen in her entire life. He stood just a few inches shorter than the bear of a man beside him and he was much leaner yet she could still tell he was very muscular. He stood there in hospital scrubs and even from a distance she could see the resemblance between him and Esme. She knew that the two men in front of her were Carlisle and Esme’s sons.

As she got closer to the men she could not tear her eyes away from Edward and she could not help but notice that he could not take his eyes off of her either. It was as if they were the only two people on that busy street. Like there was this force that was pulling them towards each other and neither one of them could help the smiles that lifted the corners of their mouths to the skies.

It may have been that force that stopped either one of them from noticing the white van that pulled up on the road and stopped in the middle of the street beside her. Before she could register what was happening a man in a mask stopped dead in front of Bella…

I had to cut you off in the middle of a sentence, or you would have known too much!

There are some minor writing errors throughout, so if this gets your goat, I’ve told you and I don’t want to hear about it, okay? Seriously, the excitement, tension, plot and characterisation more than compensate. Don’t take my word for it, go and check it out – and while you’re there, please encourage Savory to pick Thorn in my Pride back up and give us an update.

Hope on the Horizon by content1 and AngelycDevil aka ContentDevil

Banner by angelgoddess1981

Hope on the Horizon ~ In ten minutes, you can run a mile, make Mac n’ Cheese, and get a manicure. In ten minutes, you can vacuum your room, get takeout from McDonald’s, and sign up for yoga lessons. In ten minutes, your life can change forever.

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Angst – Chapters: 13 – Words: 36,856 – Reviews: 425 – Updated: 9-23-13 – Published: 9-1-13 – Bella, Edward – Complete

Hope on the Horizon hits the ground running with storm warnings and fear running high amongst the ER staff in Oklahoma. The gorgeous – and rather young – Dr Cullen takes a moment to check that his rather nonchalant and free-spirited girlfriend heeds the warnings, stays safe and goes home. As with all the best Edwards, he just wants to protect his Bella…

“Edward…why do we need a house with a basement again?” Bella asked, her soulful brown eyes twinkling in humor.

She was teasing me about my overprotective nature. I was a little paranoid. Okay, maybe a lot. I’d grown up in Oklahoma City, and I’d been through too many tornado scares in my short life. She was frustrated with me. We’d been looking in the Crown Heights-Edgemere Heights area for several weeks, but nothing really sparked my interest. Bella, however, had fallen in love with every single house we’d visited. One day, she loved the Colonial Revivals; the next, she was determined to go with a Tudor. Despite having been a neighborhood since the 30’s, not many of the owners had gotten smart and added storm cellars.

Storms brought the crazy out in me.

Bearing in mind that it was originally posted by ContentDevil for the Fandom for Oklahoma, (content1 wrote Edward’s chapters and AngelycDevil wrote Bella) brought a touching sense of reality and made the story even more emotive for me. The chapters alternate between Edward and Bella’s very different viewpoints of the crisis, but they also tell the story of their love, their connection, their deep passion and mutual understanding…which makes Edward’s fear more poignant.

But, take note of the title, it gives a clue to what’s going to happen! This is a story of human sacrifice, of scary moments, of pulling together and triumph over adversity. It’s a story of courage and hope. I will warn you, there were a couple of moments where I had to put down my iPad while I sobbed, but there were also tears of joy along the way.

At thirteen chapters in total, it’s a quick read, but the tiny glimpse of other people’s reality will stay with you beyond the last chapter.

Crash Into Me by eibbil  

CrashIntoMebyeibbilcopy

Crash Into Me ~ Hollywood It Girl, Bella Swan, needs a vacation. Best friend/PA Alice convinces her to spend it in her hometown, but a reckless driver changes their plans. Will Bella get the rest she needs in the care of Alice’s brother..or something much better? AH/AU

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 23 – Words: 142,632 – Reviews: 884 – Favs: 1,180 – Follows: 766 – Updated: 10-27-11 – Published: 09-24-10 – Status: Complete – id: 6349494

Crash Into Me is a nice, light, romantic story and you are in need of a dose of something sweet, this is just what the doctor ordered. Bella is a popular Hollywood actress who decides to spend a rare free two months in the rainiest place in the Continental US, the home-turf of her PA Alice, rather than on some hot, tropical island.  The idea is to get away from it all and enjoy a slower pace of life. You know what ‘they’ say, be careful what you wish for, because the pace of life doesn’t get much slower than when lying in a hospital bed with your leg in traction.  That word ‘crash’ in the title is meant quite literally; Bella is involved in a car crash…a crash that changes her life forever.  Now, I’m not talking about her losing any body parts here, unless of course you count her losing her heart to the sweetest, nerdiest Doctor in the entire Olympic Peninsula.  He is also a beauty to behold; in fact, one could be forgiven for mistaking him for an angel…especially one such as Bella under the influence of anaesthesia…

I closed my eyes as the gurney went through the hallways for fear motion sickness would set in and I’d cap my evening of car accidents and surgery with puking all over myself. I didn’t open them again until we stopped at an elevator. I turned my head to look down towards where we’d come. Was Alice still pink…?

I tried to focus, to see her. Instead, I saw…

I blinked. Then blinked again.

An angel?

Wasn’t there a movie once, about angels hanging around in hospitals, waiting to escort the recently dead to heaven? I thought there was, but my fuzzy mind couldn’t come up with anything except Meg Ryan’s face.

I tried to focus on the apparition down the hallway, tried squinting my eyes to see if I could see wings, a halo, something on the…entity down the corridor. I didn’t. But I could have sworn…

My eyes closed again under the strain of trying to make sense of the nonsense and drifted out of consciousness again. This time, when I opened them, I knew I was in the operating room. People in masks, the beeping machines, the cold table beneath me.

“We’re just about ready to go, Bella,” an ethereal voice said above me. “We’re putting the general anesthetic in now. Just breathe deeply and it’ll be over before you know it.”

I had a flashback to earlier. Was I wrong before? Was there an angel here?

I looked up and saw a masked face looking back at me with the greenest pair of eyes I’d ever seen in my life. They couldn’t be real, there was no way.

“Angel…,” I whispered before the meds took me away completely.

Something else ‘they’ say is ‘into every life a little rain must fall’, and that is true for Bella and her ‘angel’ Edward – and not just because of geography. They face the reality of making their budding love work long-distance and across the completely different worlds of a doctor in Port Angeles and an actress in LA.  There are also mistakes, groveling, forgiveness, lemons and love.  Crash Into Me is complete and can boast interesting support characters, canon and original, some supportive, and some hell-bent on subterfuge and sabotage…but don’t worry…the prognosis is good!

Welcome all to this week’s Fan Fiction Fridays.  Our regular readers may remember we did a Possessiveward post earlier on in the year, and we thought it was time for a sequel of sorts…  You see the “Possessiveward, You Belong to Us” post has the distinction of being our most popular post here at Rob Attack… ever!

We thought we would expand on the theme and bring you some more juicy Possessivewards you can sink your teeth into (now, there’s a thought…  LOL). Please check out our reading library at the end for more inspiration…

To Destroy by walkingwithgiants

*Banner made by Mina Rivera*

*Banner made by Mina Rivera*

To Destroy ~ In the words of Abe Lincoln, “The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend.” Bella works for a man that makes her teeth grind. “My boss is an asshole,” she cried.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Drama – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 40 – Words: 86,502 – Reviews: 2,731 – Favs: 2,061 – Follows: 3,107 – Updated: 10-25-13 – Published: 10-25-11 – id: 7493279

‘To Destroy’ is not this fandom’s average Bella-as-assistant and Edward-as-Asshole-Corporate-Officer, story. For one thing, the author is forty chapters in and there hasn’t been any sex. There is, however, awesome character development, humor, UST and an engaging plot. The characters all act and react like real people, not fantasies or clichés. It’s a different story in that regard; slow building but wonderful.

This personal assistant Bella of CFO Edward’s, is witty, smart and hard-working. He is a true workaholic and tyrant; who is also shown to be driven, intense and intelligent. As the story progresses she goes from mentally calling him ‘asshole’ and her ‘mortal enemy’ to seeing him as a man who cares for all of his employees and busts his ass to get everything done correctly.

All that and yet he is totally without social graces.

As the author slowly humanizes Edward for the reader and for Bella, we read as he earns her hatred, then respect and, at the current update, her friendship. In recent chapters, the author has teased us with flashes of interest, on both sides:

After her car breaks down in chapter 27, he offers to drive her home. On the way they actually talk about their plans for the evening…

He nodded, keeping his intent gaze on the lines of traffic in front of us. “Do you have plans?” he asked in a strange voice. “Hot date?”

Oh God. The awkward was overwhelming. Did he really just ask that? Looking at him out of the corner of my eye, the pink that stained the angles of his high cheekbones told me that yes, yes he had just asked me that ridiculous question.

I couldn’t help but snort. Loud. So loud he turned to look at me for a split second before smiling so wide in return, I thought his face would stretch painfully.

“I don’t know why I just asked you that,” he admitted with that blinding grin before blushing a pure salmon color. “Jesus.”

Laughter burst out of me at the look on his face and admission. Three gasps of air in later, something as rare as the Abominable Snowman rang throughout the confines of Mr. Cullen’s luxury sedan—he laughed. It was loud but not obnoxiously so, and it was such a rich noise, it threw me completely off guard before making me laugh even harder.

…and then in chapter 28 he even apologizes and is considerate towards her:

“I meant to buy you lunch today,” he said simply.

“Why?” I asked him a little too quickly, sounding like way more of a bitch than I intended to.

“For being a,” he gave me a weak smile, “prick this morning.”

Well then.

“I’m sorry. I had a bad morning, and when you didn’t show up I thought maybe I’d run you off when my calls went straight to voicemail—”

Wait. He’d called my phone when I hadn’t shown up?

“I should’ve known you wouldn’t just stop coming to work even if I’d done something to upset you. I was worried.” He paused. “I’m sorry for being rude,” he apologized.

And I think in that moment the world really did come crashing down. Mr. Cullen had been worried about me?

So, we saw another side of Edward…and then in chapter 37, we see Bella’s side of things and how they are progressing and how he is affecting her *wink*:

He was still in his suit pants, but his belt was off.

And so was his dress shirt. In only an undershirt that was a pristine white, it didn’t change the fact that it was thin. Nearly see-through.

Jesus.

When the hell did he get time to exercise?

He wasn’t big like my brother, but his body was lean and strong like the ballet dancers I saw at the Nutcracker every year. Or like a martial artist.

Was that a vein in his bicep?

What the fuck was I doing checking him out?

Dear God. I needed to masturbate soon if I was starting to get desperate.

But I glanced at the neat outline of his pectorals and for some messed up reason, thought to myself, well, maybe not desperate exactly. Stupid. I was getting stupid.

The mutual respect is there.  Their friendship has begun.  An attraction between the two has sprung up and I am looking forward, so much, to seeing where the author takes it all…because:

“There was Mr. Cullen…and then there was Edward.”

A Slow Boil by kts

ASlowBoil

A Slow Boil ~ Bella’s an exchange student hoping to find a job to keep herself employed for the summer so that she can stay on at an exclusive University. Her best job prospect is a part-time housekeeping position with one Mr. Cullen.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 25 – Words: 83,904 – Reviews: 2,175 – Favs: 3,064 – Follows: 1,127 – Updated: 02-02-12 – Published: 06-04-11 – Status: Complete – id: 7052343

First off, I have to let you know that this story is quite unusual in a many ways – it has a lot of non-canon elements (for example, you won’t find Emmett, Rose or Jasper in this story and well, Edward is quite different…  But if you are like me, you won’t mind. *winks*)

If I had to sum A Slow Boil up in one word I would use “intriguing”.  It captured me from the first chapter and soon I was addicted, plowing through the chapters as fast as my eyes could take me.

The beginning of the story has us meeting Bella when she applies for the position as a housekeeper to the enigmatic Edward Cullen.  Bella desperately needs a job to earn money to keep her in her student exchange program at the exclusive University she attends – but what begins as a necessary venture soon becomes a labour of love, despite some of Edward’s odd ways…

Extract from Chapter 3

“Miss Swan!”

I practically ran back into the dining room. “Yes, Mr. Cullen, what is it?”

“Miss Swan. Didn’t Mrs. Whitlock explain that you are to wait in the kitchen while I eat? I had to call you twice. Why didn’t you come the first time?” His tone was level, his expression blank, but he was rocking his empty martini glass back and forth in agitation.

“She did, Mr. Cullen, but I thought I’d have time to run downstairs and finish folding your laundry before you needed anything.”

“You were wrong. I want another martini.”

“I’m sorry – I’ll make you one right now.”

When I returned to the table I noticed that he was about half way through his meal. As I placed his new drink down he looked up at me, reading my face, which no doubt showed how anxious I was about upsetting him on my first day here.

“Thank you.”

“You’re welcome. I’m sorry about leaving the kitchen.”

“That’s alright, Miss Swan. Just don’t let it happen again.”

“You know, you can call me Bella.”

“Bella.” He said it like a statement, trying it out. “It’s a pretty name and it suits you, but I prefer Miss Swan. And I’d like you to call me Mr. Cullen or Sir.”

“Yes, sir.”

Hmm, yes, he sounds like a tyrant, doesn’t he??  But have faith, dear readers, not all is as it seems!

One of the things I loved about A Slow Boil the most was the fact that Edward really does remain a mystery until quite late on in the story – and this is why I enjoyed that this story is only told (until the very end) in BPOV.

As Bella “sweetens” Edward up and we get to know him better you can’t help but love this man who, with all his quirks, is really very caring and incredibly protective of Bella.

So, if you like your stories a little out of the ordinary and love great characters you can wrap your mind around, I’m sure A Slow Boil will be sure to satisfy!

Contractually Bound ~ She’d cost him everyone he’d ever loved. Surely a few months of marriage wasn’t too high a price for her to pay in compensation.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Drama/Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 23 – Words: 82,259 – Reviews: 5,170 – Favs: 2,421 – Follows: 2,829 – Updated: 07-23-13 – Published: 04-11-13 – Status: Complete – id: 9193694

I had heard so many great things about Contractually Bound, I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into it this week, and once I started, there was no stopping me!

Contractually Bound is quite unusual as it was started by two authors, GinnyW 31 and Shug (sshg316), but it was continued on by the uber talented LyricalKris and boy, she certainly did the original authors proud.

I wouldn’t exactly call Edward in this story possessive, per se, but he is very controlling (it is almost like he needs to be in control at all times), and at the beginning, he is a bit of an ass (okay, a lot of an ass) … just sayin’.

Bella is working as a short order cook and lives above the diner where she works – she is saving to finally meet her dream of going to college.  All that changes when Edward bursts back into her life after eight years and pretty much demands she marries him.  Edward’s mother, Esme, is dying and Edward believes that by seeing Bella and Edward finally together (even though it is a huge farce) it will give her peace in her final days.

But, dear readers, there is a whole lot more going on in this story than I can ever do justice with my mere review…

A little glimpse of Edward’s vitriol from Chapter One…

“What do we tell them?” she asked quietly.

“In two weeks’ time, I’ll take you on a quiet picnic lunch and tell you how, now that we’ve reconnected, I could never let you go.” Edward found he had to swallow down bile as he spouted off his carefully planned lie.

“Why are you giving this to me now?”

He leaned forward, his hands again resting on the sticky table, but he tried to ignore it. This was important, and he wanted to make certain that he was very clear. He waited until Bella raised her eyes from the small gold band to meet his gaze before he spoke. “Because I don’t want to confuse the lines, Bella. This is an arrangement—a contract—nothing more. This is a small town and we will have to be seen in public for this to be believable, not to mention family dinners and so on, but I want to make it clear—” he leaned even closer to her and brought up his right hand to grip her chin “—you mean absolutely nothing to me.”

Dropping his hand and standing back up, he walked to the door. With his head down, he reached out to turn the knob and said, “I will be here Sunday at three to take you to the house.”

He didn’t wait for an answer before he yanked the door open and then slammed it shut behind him. He couldn’t get out of there fast enough.”

Make no mistake, Contractually Bound is a hard read, but like most hard reads, it is very worth the heartache you endure just to see these fractured souls mend each other.

Nothing to Declare by lellabeth (one shot)

Nothing to Declare ~ Going through airport security just got a whole lot better. Meet Customsward.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Bella, Edward – Words: 4,447 – Reviews: 84 – Favs: 182 – Follows: 86 – Published: 03-27-13 – Status: Complete – id: 9142276

I couldn’t help but share with you all this little one-shot of naughtiness (because, lets’ face it, we all love a little naughty).

I was miffed after I read Nothing to Declare, as I have never seen any airport security or Customs Officers that look like Edward *Ally huffs and crosses arms across chest*.  But I can live vicariously through Bella and what fun I had doing so!

“And what other piercings do you have, naughty girl?” he asks, his words as hot as his breath that hits across my cheek and steals my own. His mouth is hovering close to my neck now, the warmth of his skin making my own pucker.

“My navel. And… and one of my nipples,” I whisper, almost shy. It’s a change – I’m usually brash, not often coy, but there’s something about this man that makes me feel like the delicate woman I’ve never been.

“Mmm, I bet you do. All pretty and pink with a bar running through it, is that right?” He says, his groan sending a gust of scorching air across the back of my neck. I gasp; clenching my eyes against the wave of arousal so strong it nearly cripples me. I don’t speak but nod instead, relishing in the way his lips pepper the sensitive skin of my neck a minute later.

“You know what that means?” he asks, immediately bringing his mouth back to suck at my pulse point. I’m incapable of words so instead shake my head vigorously, swallowing the whimper that threatens to burst out as he licks a light trail up my throat.

“Wand search, my little Bella. I’m going to have to run it all over this body,” he tells me, demonstrating by rubbing his big palms in a circuit from my hips to just beneath my breasts. “And you know what else?”

“W-what?” I ask, moaning low as he brushes his pinkie over my straining nipple.

“You’re going to love it.”

Oh, yes, Ladies – going through airport security will never be the same again! *Swoons*

Grand by CaraNo

*Made by Cara-No*

*Made by CaraNo*

Grand ~ A mafia tale about love, loyalty, betrayal, and family. Told in three parts: Grand Tale, Grand Vendetta, and Grand Finale. We’ll begin in 1975 and follow a family through the MGM Grand fire, the Dunes implosion, and the opening of Mandalay Bay.

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Crime/Family – Chapters: 42 – Words: 229,608 – Reviews: 3740 – Updated: 10-31-13 – Published: 2-22-13 – Edward, Bella

I adore the intensity of Possessiveward…the deep connection, the almost feral need for Edward to be with his Bella, which is why CaraNo‘s Edward in this epic trilogy really fits the bill for this week’s post. Dark, demanding and controlling, with aggressive tendencies…and yet his love for Isabella, his Hummingbird is unquestionable. Their love, their passion is the backbone to the series.

Usually I choose an excerpt from around the time that Edward and Bella meet, but this one from a recent update shows just how their special brand of love has stood the test of time, how Edward -or Junior as he’s known- still has the urge to show just who she belongs to, and in turn, that she owns him.

Grand Chapter 37: Finale 9

“C’mea.” I pat the marble counter and take a step back so she can hop up and sit in front of me. “Lemme look at’chu.” I set down the razor and untie her robe, letting it slide open and down her shoulders. “I’m sorry,” I mutter, ghosting my hand over her thigh. In several places on her body, I can see marks from my fingers, hands…shit, even my teeth. “You shoulda bopped me one.” I frown.

“Did I ask you to stop, ciccino?” She goes for the razor and motions me close. I step between her parted legs and keep still as she begins to shave me. “It was so intense,” she whispers, her eyes searching mine. “I loved it.”

My frown deepens, but I say nothing. Make no mistake, the wife and I can be like animals in bed, but it’s been years since I got so rough that I left marks behind. Maybe some redness that fades within a few hours, and soreness…but this? Cazzo. There’s some dark bruising around her hips from my tight grip, bite marks along her thighs and neck…

Yesterday, I lost my head—my fuckin’ mind.

 I have an insanely beautiful wife, but back home no one dares to look at her in a suggestive way. People know who I am, and when I take Isabella out to dinner or a show, they know better than to gawk at the woman on my arm. Unless they’re suicidal.

While it has all the classic characteristics of a mafia story, CaraNo gives us more. This is a family love story, with amazing original characters that I actually care about and really want to know (quite a few non-canon pairings); moments of real terror where I’m frightened and reading between my fingers; hot, hot, hooooot steamy lemons that leave me panting…but right at the heart of it all is love. It changes, evolves but just gets deeper. I’m not gonna lie, there have been times when I’ve been angry too – wanted to shake Junior, scream at him even, but Isabella understands him, knows his world and anchors him.

I’m not sure how Cara has managed to create a love story spanning decades, with a multi-generational and complicated family tree, using real life events as a backdrop and infusing humour, without diluting the love story of Edward and Bella…but she has. It really is a drop-everything story.

White Shadows by sunflowersongs

*Made by Twilly*

*Made by Twilly*

White Shadows ~ Edward’s a knight. Bella’s a fair maiden in need of a protector. An arranged marriage, a run for freedom, a change of heart, a choice to be made. Lots of adventure, some humor, and a cocky Edward.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Fantasy/Romance – Edward, Bella – Chapters: 15 – Words: 74,623 – Reviews: 961 – Favs: 620 – Follows: 1,015 – Updated: 11-06-13 – Published: 07-28-13 – id: 9538475

Sunflowersongs hints at the sense of fun she instills in White Shadows, and the delights that lie ahead with her author note from Chapter 1: First, Edward is a knight and about the cockiest bastard you’ll ever meet. Second, there’s a fair maiden in need of rescue. And third…did I mention Edward is a knight? Oh yes! I hear you sunflowersongs, and I’d like to add, fourth, fifth and sixth…did she mention Edward is a cocky bastard?

Look up to the top of the post at the sexy banner made by AllyVera.  Protective – Controlling – Intense, yes, yes, and yes for our favourite knight, but I should have asked her to include Cockybastardward…someone please pass me a Sharpie. 🙂 Read this extract from the first glimpse of Edward and I’m sure you’ll agree…

EPOV

I walked into the dark, smoky great hall and tugged off my gloves and cloak. I adjusted my tunic over my chain mail as my squire, Tormund, rushed over to relieve me of my things and my sword. I went to unhook my sword belt, but paused. This was a friendly castle, loyal to my family, but, as my father had always reminded me, trust no one but your own self.

A buxom serving wench brought me a tankard of ale and handed it to me with a nearly toothless smile. She gave me a once over and then winked at me as she shoved her large breasts up to better display her wares to me. She was almost ugly, but she seemed clean and friendly enough. I pondered her silent offer as she strutted away.

No, I wasn’t that desperate. I’d wait for a better offer. It would come. I never wanted for a woman to warm my pallet at night.

Being the only son and heir to Castle Sunhaven of the Amber Isle, First Knight to King Alfred, the reigning tournament champion five years running, the man nicknamed “Slayer” by those he’d fought against…I held a certain attraction, a certain fascination to women. But then perhaps my face and body- and being well endowed- had something to do with it as well.

Perhaps Edward, perhaps! LOL

Isabella of Ostburn is the fair maiden in need of protection and Edward of Sunhaven is just the man knight for the task. Not that she makes it easy on him, and I can’t blame her for that as she finds him to be “the most annoying, frustrating, and confusing man that’s ever lived!”  Actually, Bella does agree with Edward’s self-assessment that he is “every woman’s dream” well, he is her dream…and quite literally her knight in shining armour, but she doesn’t see the need to inflate his ego as everything about Edward is big enough already. 😉

Oh, did I mention this Edward smolders – he consciously smolders! I can almost hear him ask, “Do I dazzle you?” *Snicker* And in answer to his question, “Frequently.”  Because, yes, he does, and when he is all gallant, masterful and manly…he makes me – a modern independent woman – wish for a heaving bosom in which to offer him rest and comfort. (I’m so selfless!)  Then, when he gets all protective of Bella, it makes him doubly attractive in my eyes; he is welcome to sleep across the threshold of my chamber, js.

The seemingly simple remit of guarding Bella with his life, leads to discovering love, a daring adventure with loyal friends, bad guys and battles, and growing into the man he was destined to be.  Sunflowersongs also tells us this captivating story of fantasy and romance is “not set anywhere real, so there’s no historical accuracy to mess up, and the fictional medieval rules are my own in this land of Oaklea.”  Even given that fact, and White Shadows being so refreshing and unique, I enjoy spotting twists, canon characteristics and parallels that make me smile. It updates regularly and at 15 chapters in you’ll soon catch up with this intrepid band on their life-changing journey.

Copy Room by Edward’s Eternal

Copy Room banner

*Made by Fallingsnow Winter*

Copy Room ~ Sometimes flippant words are really the truth spoken out loud. What happens when someone overhears you and decides to give you what you secretly want but never knew?

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 27 – Words: 46,875 – Reviews: 6,000 – Favs: 1,801 – Follows: 2,812 – Updated: 11-07-13 – Published: 09-14-13 – Status: Complete – id: 9687201

Bella has a sexual fantasy: “Maybe that’s what I want, Rose. Sex with no strings. Maybe sex with a stranger.” I leaned back in my chair, enjoying the surprised look on her face. “Yeah,” I mused. “Hot, fast, hard sex with a stranger. Somewhere dark. No names. No strings. Just …” I lowered my voice further. “Hot. Dirty. Fucking.” …and this possessive, dominant, fuck-hot Edward, is just the man to fulfill it! Welcome to Edward’s Eternal’s Copy Room.

This Isabella Swan wasn’t usually so verbal and blunt, she’s actually quite shy and feels she’s “invisible” – suffering from a bit of low self-esteem after being hurt by her ex-boyfriend, Riley. She works as a PA in a busy office. Her boss, James, is not confident in the security of today’s technology, causing Bella to have to use a private copy room on a regular basis…and this is where all the action *wink* takes place, beginning when Bella receives an anonymous text…

Sighing, I gathered my pile of copying and went down the hall. I set up the copier and sat down, waiting for the collated piles to start appearing. My phone buzzed in my pocket, signalling a new text. I pulled it out, frowning at the unknown number. My eyes widened as I read the text.

You’re not invisible.

I see you.

And I think you’re beautiful.

Bella’s not sure what to think when she reads those words, and subsequent texts, “Be careful what you wish for, Bella.” At first she believes it could be a joke from co-worker and friend Rose to cheer her up, but as the story progresses, Bella discovers she really isn’t “invisible” but actually very desirable – to someone – and that her fantasy is about to become reality…

…the room suddenly went black.

For a second I stood there, confused. The copier was still working, how could the lights go off? A noise right behind me startled me but before I could move a pair of hands gripped my waist.

I gasped as the hands pulled me backward and I felt the hard planes of a well-defined chest pressed against my back. Warm breath drifted across my cheek as a low, rough voice whispered in my ear.

“Is this what you wanted?”

“What?” I whispered, a shudder running through me. “Who are you? What … what do you want?”

The voice chuckled, a deep, rumbling noise. “No names, remember? You said a stranger …”

A small whimper escaped my throat. Someone had heard my flippant words to Rose.

Warm lips grazed up my neck. “You know what I want. I know what you want. Tell me, Isabella,” the voice demanded softly. “Is the room dark enough?”

“D … dark enough?”

A warm, wet tongue traced my earlobe. Another deep chuckle sounded in my ear as I shivered and I felt the hands on my waist tighten.

“Dark enough for me to fuck you?”

Wow, anyone else hot?  Well, if you think that’s hot…you haven’t read anything yet because you need to meet: “Edward, Isabella. My name is Edward,” he growled as he thrust forward. “And I want to hear you moan it when you come.”  He is like no other Edward I’ve ever read – mysterious, protective, controlling, intense, complex, calculating, and even caring – as he gives Isabella exactly what she wants; but is there more to him than the dark, sexy meetings inside the copy room? You’ll thoroughly enjoy finding out; trust me.

What’s more, we must not overlook the fact that the story is also rated Romance…as sweet, shy Masen, with his offerings of friendship, coffee and Werther’s, is brilliantly interwoven into this complete and consuming plot, masterfully presented by one of the most talented and sweetest ladies I know, Edward’s Eternal!

All Hail Our Chief…Executive Officer!

When Dior Rob took centre stage in the media, and made us all swoon, CEOward came to our minds and dominated *wink* our stage, as we ogled and drooled appreciated Rob in his business-coat finest…

ROBCOATEAnd that just may have been the pervy inspiration for today’s post, as we celebrate hot, sexy, confident, powerful…well, you get the idea, CEOward in his finest!

The Search ~ When Bella Swan flees to London to escape her painful and humiliating past her new life is knocked off its axis by her charismatic and ambitious boss, Edward Cullen. Can Ed unravel Bella’s secrets and get what he wants without revealing his own demons…and his heart? AH. Britishward.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Drama – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 31 – Words: 182,812 – Reviews: 3,149 – Favs: 2,370 – Follows: 2,304 – Updated: 01-21-13 – Published: 09-02-11 – Status: Complete – id: 7345952

The Search may not be your typical CEOward, in fact; technically he’s a ruthless headhunter, but he does wear a suit and tie to the office. I loved this story for a myriad of reasons. One of the main ones being this Edward. He’s demanding, sexy, sweet and British to boot! What more could you ask for? And the Bella is simply endearing, as well. Life isn’t easy for these two coworkers, especially when the demons you are running away from have a way of coming right back at you. And the alternating POV’s let you delve into each character without repetition. This story will have you cheering for both Edward and Bella to overcome their pasts and hopefully create a future together.

Chapter 4 EPOV

I wander back to my office and try to shake off Aro’s comment. Usually people’s jokes and jibes about my working style (and let’s be honest my personal life too) slide off like water from a duck’s back but this time it grates on me. I know I can be an arsehole to work with, I’m not a fool, and my colleagues aren’t afraid to be honest with me, but I’m really uncomfortable about the fact that someone may have already given Isabella Swan this impression.

I study the back of her head from the doorway of my office as discreetly as possible. As backs of heads go it’s a beautiful one. I clear my throat purposely and she leaps a foot in the air. What’s the deal with this poor bird’s nerves?

“Hi again, I’m sorry to keep you waiting.” I say, sitting down at my desk. “Shall we get started?”

She nods, readies the pen and paper on her lap and smiles up at me. Once again my heart gathers some extra, unnecessary speed. This is getting quite ridiculous.

“So I assume Kate showed you the ropes before she left?”

“For the most part.” Bella replies. “She didn’t have a chance to go through everything but I’ve got the basics I think. Plus, I’m familiar with all the systems and procedure from Seattle so that’s an advantage.”

It’s the most I’ve heard her speak so far. Her accent is delicate, easy on the ears. Some Americans can sound alittle brash to me but Bella’s voice is soft and subtle.

Apparently my misbehaving heartbeat agrees.

“Good. Although I should warn you we have some of our own procedures that may differ from what you are used to.”

A tiny wrinkle of confusion furrows her forehead. “But I thought all offices worked the same way with the same systems?”

I snort. “Not here they don’t. We have some of our own methods that you’ll definitely need to adhere to.” Was that a little harsh? I might as well get all the expectations on the table.

She nods but looks unsure. I remind myself that she is a pod person from Volturi Seattle and will need to be broken in a little.

“We’ll go through all my current assignments and I’ll get you up to speed on where we’re at and then you can attack your in-tray and inbox which I can promise will be full about 30 seconds after I get logged on. Sound good?”

“Yes, sir” she nods.

“And enough of the ‘sir’. We’re not in school, Isabella.”

She squares her shoulders and sits up a little straighter”Well then, enough of the ‘Isabella’. It’s Bella, remember?”

Whoa. Not so shy then, are you, Treacle? I can’t help but chuckle, Aro may just end up eating his hat after all.

And so it begins! I highly recommend joining these two on their adventure of getting to know each other. There are laughs, tears, anger and love along the way, and Amber’s Pen does it brilliantly.

No Ordinary Proposal by twilover76

*Banner by Jaime Arkin*

*Banner by Jaime Arkin*

No Ordinary Proposal ~ Bella wants to escape her small-town life and live her dreams in New York. What happens when a man almost twice her age makes her an offer she can’t refuse? AH/M

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Drama – Chapters: 36 – Words: 158,712 – Reviews: 10254 – Updated: 1-6-13 – Published: 5-6-12 – Bella, Edward – Complete

No Ordinary Proposal by Twilover76 is no ordinary fic; it’s one of my favourite CEOwards as it kept me reading incessantly, kept me wanting more, with how its intricate “proposal” plays out throughout the story. NOP Edward is powerful, possessive, commanding, intelligent, rich, hot, sexy, older – 38, and so loving and caring – he’s one of a kind, in my CEO world – and soon to be so in Bella’s, as well!

Eighteen-year-old Bella Swan from Forks, Washington, has not had an easy life – orphaned as a young teen, with only her step-father to help her, she is looking forward to getting out of the small town, with all its sad memories. Upon graduation she planned to move to New York to attend NYU, even thought she had secured a full scholarship through the “Edward Cullen Scholarship fund,” but sometimes our dreams can come crashing down, and that is exactly what happened to Bella. She lost the scholarship because, “…one week after receiving the news I was the scholarship winner, I was told by the same employee that an error had been made. Another student in my class was to receive the award instead.” Needless to say, Bella is “emotionally and financially” devastated. As a last resort, she reaches out to President/CEO Edward Cullen of Cullen-Whitlock, Inc., via letters, phone, and then, as a desperate measure, a face-to-face meeting in New York – because her future depends on that money. But what she gets – the proposal she receives – is much more than she ever bargained for…

*excerpt from Chapter 6*

“So, Bella, tell me about yourself.”

“Not much to tell.” I met his gaze. “Besides, I’m pretty sure you know everything already.”

He smirked. “I’ve done some homework, but I think there’s a lot more I have yet to find out.”

I really wanted to slap that smug smirk away…or maybe kiss it away.

Stop it, Bella!

I was getting frustrated with myself as much as with him.

“But why do you want to know more? What is all this about?” I asked angrily, waving my hand at the wine and candles.

His eyes glittered as his smile grew. “I wondered what you would look like when you got feisty. It’s better than I imagined.”

Before I could fire off a retort, Hannah appeared with our dinners. I had completely lost my appetite, but I thanked her anyway. If I hadn’t been thoroughly confused and intensely aroused at the same time, the shrimp linguine would have been perfect for the setting.

I took a big gulp of wine, and then watched Edward fill my glass back up. His eyes never left mine.

He twirled noodles around his fork and slurped them down with a grin.

“You should really try this, Bella. It’s delicious.”

“You didn’t answer my questions.” I took another drink of wine and folded my arms over my chest defiantly.

He hummed, and tilted his head. “You really haven’t figured it out?”

“No, Edward. I don’t know. Tell me why I’m here.”

He put his fork down and leaned forward again. “It’s actually quite simple. I want you, Bella.”

Oh, yeah, and there you have it…stemming from Edward’s want, comes his proposal; the crux of this consuming story. But what does CEOward really want from Bella? Is there more to Edward’s motivation? And what does this “proposal” actually entail? Well, you need to read all that for yourself, as I simply could not do it justice in a review. 

I could fill this post with the many reasons why I love this fic – the fabulous Bella – young but mature beyond her years, the complex Edward, the intense emotional aspects for both of them, the strong sexual chemistry they share, the snags thrown their way… And I could share all I want to about how the story unfolds, as it’s truly involved and much more multifaceted than Bella ever thought, but reading it, is part of the excellent experience…because Edward sure puts forth one good – and beneficial for both – “contract” to entice young Bella! *wink*

Read on, my friends, because if you haven’t read No Ordinary Proposal yet, I’m certain you will thoroughly enjoy it. And may it become as memorable a CEOward for you, as it was for me!

The Dress ~ Edward Cullen: Successful, arrogant, dominant, whorehound. Bella Swan: Confident, ambitious, seductress, workaholic. Two COO’s with one goal: To stop at nothing to reach the top. Even if it means pushing the other person over the edge. A/H. Rated M for Lemons, Language and everything in-between. One Shot entry for the Dirty Talkin’ Edward contest. To be continued…

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 5 – Words: 16,834 – Reviews: 261 – Favs: 223 – Follows: 419 – Updated: 10-26-13 – Published: 08-30-13 – id: 9643272

“Edward Cullen: Successful, arrogant, dominant, whorehound. Bella Swan: Confident, ambitious, seductress, workaholic. Two COO’s with one goal: To stop at nothing to reach the top. Even if it means pushing the other person over the edge.” Well, there you have it, what this story is all about! And, yes, it’s a hell of wildly romance-filled read full of UST and more.

The Dress was originally written for The Dirty Talking Edward contest, and to our great reading pleasure, is now being expanded. It was one of my favourite entries, as this CEOward is one smooth talker; hot, dirty, sexy, and full of cockiness…er, I mean personality, just the way I like him. There is indeed something about this Edward that captivates me – he’s just so cocksure, which I love to read, but it’s also his pursuit of this confident, intelligent Bella, the way he teases and goads her, that is really quite amusing and makes me keep reading, as their professional lives become intertwined. They have an awesome dynamic. Bella is brilliant in her rebuffs to him, as he attempts to work together on a more personal level. I also love their banter…it’s so filled with UST, and, I gotta say, Bella sure has one hell of a strong resolve to resist COOward, after their initial “encounter”…

I narrowed my eyes. “I should have known you were a Cullen. Of course you’re not used to people telling you no.”

“You seemed to be saying yes, loud and clear, earlier in the supply room.”

“I didn’t realize that you were the asshole that tried to take my Dad’s company from him.”

He lifted his hands up. “That was a misunderstanding.”

“Bribing our board members for their stock shares was a misunderstanding, Edward? No wonder you’re in the business of testing out whores. You have no morals or ethics.”

“Such harsh words from the same mouth that was begging me to make her come.”

“It was a lapse in judgment, but I promise you, I will not be making that mistake again,” I hissed out.

“Why not? Maybe a little untightening of that cork you have up your ass would help you a bit.”

I leaned in close, and it took everything in me to not choke him. “The cork I have up my ass is working just fine. Mmmm, very fine indeed,” I moaned out.

I quickly stepped away, but could feel him on my heels. When I reached the bar, he pressed himself against my back and whispered, “You can’t say stuff like that and then walk away.”

I wiggled around to face him. “I’m not on your payroll, Cullen! I can’t be bought. Oh, but you know this. Just like you know I delivered you and your dad’s ass on a platter for trying to take over my family’s company!”

He grinned, then nodded at the gentleman beside me; I hadn’t even noticed him. We both said nothing and waited until he left. Edward was the first to speak. “I must say, it was a surprise to see that your people figured things out. I made sure I had covered all the bases.”

“You’re surprised that the Cullens were outsmarted? From what I know about your family, I’m surprised you got this far. Yet, old money does that. The less one has to work for anything, the more useless they become, I think. In your case, a generation of sorts.”

“Leave my family out of this!” he snapped.

I grinned. “But why? You tried to take everything that mine has worked for.”

He composed himself and placed hard grin on his devilish face. “Well, look at us now. We have two happy families joined as one.”

“We’ll see just how happy you are Cullen, when I’m done with you.”

When I went to leave, he grabbed my arm. “Is that a promise, Isabella?”

I yanked my arm out of his grip and stormed away.

And that is only a taste of the fire that burns between these two whenever they are thrown together, and talking of asses, as Bella says, “As much as the man was an ass, he was an intelligent ass.” I love that analysis because I have a good feeling there is more to this Edward than meets the eye.

We now have five chapters, including the original one shot, and I am anxiously awaiting more…as things seem to be heating up in the board room, on the Cullen’s private plane…and under Bella’s dress! lol

Love Tokyo Style by SoapyMayhem

*Made by SoapyMayhem*

Love Tokyo Style ~ O/S – Edward, a lonely executive on a business trip in Japan, is encouraged to loosen up and enjoy the city. Will he find a cure for the monotony in an uninhibited punk he meets in a Karaoke bar? Written for FGBAutism

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Edward & Bella – Words: 7,399 – Reviews: 43 – Favs: 120 – Follows: 50 – Published: 05-02-11 – Status: Complete – id: 6960559

I easily can recall reading numerous stories where Edward and Bella meet in a bar, I can even think of a few where they meet to the backdrop of dubious tunes in a karaoke bar, but this is my the first fic where they meet in a karaoke bar in Japan!

The most unusual setting, with its illuminating glimpse of Japanese culture, is not the only facet of this fic that makes it feel unique.  I can honestly say, hand on heart, that I’ve never met an Edward and Bella quite like these; IMHO, they were masterfully depicted by the talented and creative SoapyMayhem.

Given as this is a one-shot, I don’t want to reveal too much, but between the summary, the post title, and the fabulous banner, you must have already guessed the obvious difference in appearance of our favourite couple.  Ceoward considers himself to be “pathetically boring”, (personally I find him to be bordering on nerdy – just the way I love Edward to be) and entrancing Bella is a self-assured punk rocker.  At first I thought of the saying ‘opposites attract’, but, it’s more than that with these two – ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ is more appropriate, as Edward and Bella learn how true that actually is…

Quickly, I wash my hands and retreat to the comfort of the booth. As I am making my way back, I hear the sultriest voice I’ve ever heard belting out the chorus of Janis Joplin’s ‘Piece of My Heart.’ It’s awe-inspiring and would give Janis herself a run for her money. I push my way through the crowd to place a face with that voice. The first thing I see is the top of a very tall, very blonde mohawk.

As the crowd parts, I start to make out more and more of her features. She is taller than the punk pixie and curvier than the girl with the Cock T’s t-shirt. It’s her face that truly stops me short.

Under the blue lights, she’s ethereal. Pale skin, heart-shaped face, full red lips, and deep dark soulful eyes make me ignore the bright purple eye shadow and enormous blonde mohawk streaked with black that crowns her head.

Her eyes close for few moments, like she means every word of the song. I wonder if she’s singing it about someone in particular. When she opens those stunning eyes, it’s almost as if they’re drawn to mine. I realize I have moved all the way to the stage, and I am closer than I probably should be. Before I can stalk off from the embarrassment I feel, she smiles and continues singing, not taking her eyes off me for the rest of the song.

Oooh, I love how Edward and Bella have such a palpable and pitch perfect connection – read Love Tokyo Style and you will feel it too.

This Is Who I Am by pattyrose

This Is Who I Am by pattyrose banner

*Banner by Elliania*

This Is Who I Am ~ Edward Cullen, successful business exec/playboy/all around bad boy. Bella Swan, divorced mom/graphic artist/unwilling to trust her heart to the likes of someone like Edward again. Will she give him a chance? Does he even deserve one? AH, AU ExB

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Drama – Chapters: 39 – Words: 362,984 – Reviews: 5612 – Updated: 6-29-11 – Published: 5-18-10 – Edward, Bella – Complete

My choice for “CEOWard” today is one of my personal favourites, “This is Who I am” by the incomparable pattyrose.

When we meet Edward – co-founder and executive of one of the most sought after Marketing companies on the East Coast, Cullen, Cullen and Whitlock – on the surface, he is a success story – rich, successful, drop-dead gorgeous.  But simmering underneath all the “pretty”, is a man who is lost.

We start to see the real Edward surface the day he meets a gorgeous little girl and her mother…

“I ignored her for the moment while I studied the little girl. She was definitely a beauty. Tiny – no more than five I’d say, with a face like a porcelain doll. Her long, brown hair flowed almost to her waist. Her big brown eyes looked like pools of melted chocolate, and her little button nose turned up slightly at the end, like a little cherub. I suddenly got the strange urge to protect this little girl, to keep her safe from everything and everyone that would ever want to mess with her.

 Abruptly, she skipped back over to me and stopped just inches away.

 “I’m sorry mistuh! I fowgot to say thank you. But my mommy would be looking fuh me and I didn’t want huh to wouwy. Thank you!” she exclaimed, looking much happier than she had just a few seconds ago.

 “You’re very welcome,” I chuckled, ignoring the way Rosalie’s eyes were piercing a hole through my brain. At that moment, I couldn’t have cared less about the shitload of grief I knew I was in for.

 The little angel hugged her doll close to her and gave her a soft kiss on the head, looking up at me through long, dark eyelashes. Just then, the brunette reached her.

 “Maddie,” she breathed, both relief and slight reproach in her tone. “I told you to stay in my cube while I went to the copy room. You almost gave me a heart attack.” She knelt down and hugged the little girl to her.

“I had to get Angie mommy,” the little girl explained, her voice muffled in her mother’s hair. Hair that I was now noticing was the same exact shade as her daughter’s. “The nice man heeuh found huh fuh me.”

 “He did?” the brunette asked, pulling her daughter far enough away so that she could look into her tiny face. “Did you thank him?”

 “Uhuh,” she answered sweetly, but looked back up at me. “Thank you so much mistuh!” she repeated.

“Call me Edward,” I encouraged, surprised by the mellowness in my own voice. I couldn’t remember ever having used that tone. “Mister is my father,” I added, and then regretted it right away. I could’ve listened to her call me ‘mistuh’ all day.

The little girl giggled.

“Thank you, Edwood,” she corrected herself.

 My mouth turned up in a smile. Scratch that. I could listen to her call me ‘Edwood’ all day.”

Edward loses his heart that day (even though it takes him a while to realize what is going on) and suddenly his life takes on new meaning.  But this is no easy love story – it is a hard road for both Edward and Bella.  Edward has to prove to Bella he is a changed man, and Bella is wary of smooth-talking handsome men (with incredibly good reason), not to mention she has her beautiful Maddie to protect.

I truly felt for Edward, his playboy history keeps coming to slap him in the face at the worst times, and honestly, I just wanted to give the poor guy a hug!  (but you know I am biased.. . LOL). Edward is definitely not a bad person, quite the contrary, but he has made some bad decisions in his past *cough* Tanya *cough*. 

What I loved most about This is Who I Am, is watching Edward and Maddie fall in love with each other.  There is a very special connection between them – like Edward was meant to be her father all along. Ah, Fate – you have to love it, and this story is all about three souls that are fated to be together, no matter what is thrown at them.

Plan B by chocaholic123

*Made by SparrowNotes24*

Plan B ~ Plan B: a strategy or plan to be implemented if the original one proves impracticable or unsuccessful. Best used in the cold light of day, after waking up in bed next to a virtual stranger. An E/B three shot.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Drama – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 3 – Words: 11,389 – Reviews: 544 – Favs: 594 – Follows: 599 – Updated: 06-12-13 – Published: 06-05-13 – Status: Complete – id: 9360397

What do I expect from the very best CEOwards? Well, I like them to be confident -maybe, a touch arrogant, even. Erm…commanding? Yep, definitely commanding. Sharp, intelligent, slightly cunning, powerful, masterful…oh yessssss…that works. Masterful and, of course, sexy. Most importantly – sexy. Oh heck *fans self*. Mmmm. Well, Chocaholic123 does not disappoint and gives us all of those qualities and more in her Plan B Edward, even if we’re not quite sure who he is… Let’s face it, you don’t ask for a résumé when it’s a one night stand.

The rules of a one night stand dictate I should gather up my clothes and leave as quietly as possible. My cocktail dress hangs carelessly from the fifty inch TV screen in the corner of the room, but there’s no evidence of my panties and bra. I guess we were pretty eager to get rid of our clothes last night. I shut my eyes and remember the way he practically ripped the clothes from my body, before running his hands all over me, palms rising and dipping with the contours of my curves.

My skin tingles with the memory of his touch, and I’m almost regretful I have to leave. But I need to play by the rules. You don’t have hot, meaningless sex—three times—with a gorgeous stranger and hang around to make small talk in the morning. You gather up your clothes along with your self-esteem, and make a quick escape, clinging on to the memory of the one hot, steamy night when you were worshipped like a goddess.

And boy, did he worship me. Even before we started to talk in the bar, his gaze was firmly on my body, following me around the room with deep green irises. I’d felt like I was on fire all night, his scrutiny lending me a certain confidence; enough to make me shine amongst the men and women attending the 71st Annual Interior Design Conference.

Bringing myself back to the present, I shimmy out of the queen sized bed, scrambling around the hotel room on my knees, desperate to locate my navy lace bra and panties. They’re the best I own—bought in an extravagant fit of madness—and I’m damned if I’m going to leave them behind as a trophy.

Even if he does deserve an award for his prowess.

Unfortunately for Bella (but fortunately for us 😉 ) she doesn’t make a smooth getaway, and so we get to see some more of Edward’s…err…prowess! Plan B is perfect short read with a lovely Bella and a sexy-as-sin Edward who definitely knows the art of negotiation and how to wield his power.

Asylum by darkNnerdy

tumblr_mrsyt6bMtD1sv3g6mo1_500

Asylum ~ He is sin personified, wicked and inked, cruelty always at the tip of his tongue. Black wings grace his back, and blood stains his hands. She’s the poison he wants to consume, but can she survive?

I don’t know, but I think darkNnerdy may be some kind of genius. She’s managed to script an Edward (well, actually a Masen) both truly terrifying and frighteningly attractive. I’m warning you now, you need a strong constitution to read this supernatural tale. It’s both dark and addictive, right from the first word:

Black wings flutter under a long grey coat as he sits in the shadows and watches her.

There is a shiver up his spine, crawling and snaking its way under his skin. The only indication of what’s happening around them. Around the bubble he’s placed her in.

“I drew you a picture.” Her tiny little legs carry her all the way to the corner of her yard. Big brown eyes find his as he smiles down at her, taking the picture she drew.

He observes her for a moment. Her wide smile, framed by dimples set in chubby cheeks. She looks so much like the woman inside.

The woman whose blood is staining the walls and soaking their cream colored sofa.

Her mother.

He could protect her, but he’d much rather sit outside with Bella. Watching her play, hearing her laughter.

Even with a heart as dark as night and as cold as snow, the small girl warms him. She’s an enigma. So small and fragile, yet the strongest person he’s ever met.

She’s a contradiction.

She shouldn’t be able to survive, not with him, but she does.

“Do you like it, Masen?” She asks, tugging at his slacks, annoyed that he isn’t paying attention to her.

“I do.” His eyes drift to the sliding glass door of the house as blood sprays across it, and he takes her into his arms, walking them to the swings.

He fights the urge to turn around and enjoy the sight before him.

“Do you think mommy will like it?” Her hands make fists on his jacket, and he knows she can sense what’s happening. He can feel it within her, the unease, the tension.

“I think she’ll love it.” He brushes her wavy hair out of her face, his skin connecting with hers and easing her mind.

It’s a gift he doesn’t use often, something he shares with his brother. Something forbidden with mortals.

He’s supposed to follow the code. Rules set in place centuries ago to protect them. But Masen rarely does as he’s told, especially when breaking the rules is so much fun. When breaking them means he gets to keep Bella.

And Bella is spared nothing – no atrocity is too evil for her to witness, it seems. Life gets complicated, and every chapter brings with it another dark turning, never what you expect to read.  If I tell you anything at all about the story, I’ll be taking something away from you, so I urge you to lock all the doors, check under the bed and snuggle up next to someone strong and protective.

In the true spirit of Halloween, read Asylum for the thrill of being frightened and enthralled – I dare you.

World To Come by CaraNo

World To Come ~ “We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.” – Nicene Creed. In the middle of a zombie apocalypse, a group of survivors leave what’s left of civilization behind. With Florida in the rearview, they begin their journey toward Alaska. Five thousand miles with the undead.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Adventure/Horror – Edward, Bella – Chapters: 2 – Words: 9,728 – Reviews: 385 – Favs: 486 – Follows: 721 – Updated: 10-20-13 – Published: 10-12-13 – id: 9759063

Nothing says “Halloween” quite like a zombie apocalypse. Tension, fear, scruff, muscles, dirt, tough guys, tougher women – CaraNo has skimped on nothing in this brilliant beginning to what promises to be an epic gore-fest.

Bella screamed, putting all her strength into each blow, but the surface was just too small. She could barely move, cornered in an alley by three fucking monsters. Out of options, all she could do was fight with her fists to buy time until she reached a head she could drive a blade into. 

She was covered in sweat and grime. The smell from the undead was revolting; nausea crept up, but as sad as it was, she was getting used to it. Her clothes were in shreds, jeans and a too-big hoodie. Hair greasy and tucked in under her shirt in a ponytail; she didn’t want to give a walker more to grab onto.

“Fuck!” she cried out and shoved her blade up the closest one’s chin. He fell to the ground with a grunt, blood and gore splattering all over. Another beast tried to claw at her, but with tears of fury and exhaustion streaming down her cheeks, she managed to push him away for now. “Seth!”

She needed her little brother to be alive. He was out there—right now, fighting. A fifteen-year-old boy…he shouldn’t have to see this. With another scream, Bella’s fist flew out, her knuckles throbbing so painfully. Her only protection was the duct tape that covered her hands. They could bite through, but it gave an extra few seconds.

Somewhere out on the street, a car alarm went off.

Bella was too busy staying alive to give a rat’s ass, but she still acknowledged the fact that the blaring noise was going to attract more walkers. “Seth!” she shouted again. Due to the rotten-smelling blood soaking her fingers, her blade almost slipped out of her grasp, and it was enough for a walker to try to take a bite outta her arm. “Oh my God!” She pushed and shoved, internally weeping…I don’t wanna die, I don’t wanna die…over and over. But she refused to let her weakness show.

She couldn’t quit.

It was amazing how quickly you could harden your heart and pull up armor to keep the emotions at bay.

Love it? You’ll enjoy it even more if you head over to CaraNo‘s WordPress site to see the incredible manips and banners there, made by the talented Lolypop82. She’s promised us some for every chapter. I don’t watch The Walking Dead myself, but I’ve heard it’s great, and it has to be if this story is what the show inspired!

Dark Goddess ~ A free-spirited archaeologist & a shy, absent-minded genius find a 500 year old vampire who thinks she’s a goddess. They try to sneak back to the US, teach her about the modern world, and try very, very hard not to fall in love with the Dark Goddess. OOC/AU/Rated M

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Adventure – Chapters: 33 – Words: 154,588 – Reviews: 2733 – Updated: 11-24-12 – Published: 3-28-12 – Bella, Edward – Complete

This is not an Indiana Jones crossover fic, but every time I think of it, the movie soundtrack plays in my head:

I had so much fun reading this story. It’s adventurous, hilarious, gripping and silly, all wrapped in a parcel of delicious geeky genius Edward and beautiful goddess/vampire Bella. The whole cast and crew have creative roles, especially Jake.

Jacob approached it and added his light to Edward’s. “It’s a sarcophagus,” he whispered. “I know it is. I can’t believe it. Fuck me, I can’t believe it!” He traced his fingers over the carvings and a look of determination crossed his face as he swung his bag off his shoulder. 

“Jake, what are you doing?”

“I’m opening it.”

“No, no way.” Edward extended a hand to grip the bag. “Jacob, stop and think for a moment. We don’t know what’s inside, what condition it’s in. Exposing it to air – ” 

Jacob’s jaw clenched. “I’m opening it. I have to. I can’t leave without knowing if I was right.”

“You can’t use a crowbar on this, Jake, it’s just wrong. You’re an archaeologist, for Christ’s sake, not Indiana Jones!”

Jacob whipped off his t-shirt and wrapped the end of the crowbar to avoid chipping or scratching the stone. He wedged the crowbar into the rim under the lid at the narrow end and shoved. The lid lifted slightly with a puff of air, scented luxuriantly with that rich, spicy smell. Edward filled his lungs and bent to help Jake slide the lid down safely. Like entering the temple itself, if he couldn’t talk Jake out of it, he’d do all he could to lessen the consequences. They slid it down a few feet and then shone their lights inside. 

“Holy fucking moley,” Jacob said mildly. 

“I .. can’t … believe …” Edward gaped in shock. 

A perfectly preserved woman’s body lay within.

The whole supernatural world, Lissa Bryan-style, is to be found in the Dark Goddess. There are elves – quite freaking scary elves, too. Vampires have their own laws, and Aro is not the usual suspect (a reason enough to read the story in my book). If you want to enjoy Halloween but aren’t in to horror at all, you can still join in by reading this story.

If you have the stomach for it, you can read two versions of Dark GoddessThere’s the original which seems to have some sort of Edward/Bella/Jake three-way thing going on. *Shudders* Or if you get squicked out by that sort of thing (like me!) you can stick to the version posted on Fanfiction.net. There are lots of options. You can read the story, see the pictures and read a Q&A on Lissa’s Blogspot  or her Facebook page; you can read her original version on TWCS; or go the traditional route and read her  here story here:

*Made by Twisted in Masen*

Don’t Fear the Reaper ~ Halloween in Philly is a month long affair. Edward is hunting among the freaks and geeks on South Street when he spies her. Traditional vampires, very mature content. OOC Edward.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Supernatural/Romance – Edward · Bella – Words: 9,581 – Reviews: 56 – Favs: 131 – Follows: 79 – Published: 10-16-10 – Status: Complete – id: 6402561

Javamomma0921 gives a warning that Edward is a traditional vampire who hunts humans, a premise that may offend some who should not read on, but if you find dark traditional vampires hot, then proceed.  I hesitated for only a moment before reading on.

EPOV

The only thing that was different about South Street around Halloween was the costumes. Even they weren’t terribly different from the outlandish things the regulars usually wore … just more honest. It was as if the freaks took the masks off around Halloween and let everyone inside their twisted heads. Not that they could ever hide from me.

The locals here knew how to draw out a party. In the weeks before All Hallow’s Eve, they’d host party after party just for an excuse to drink and grind, dress up and then get naked. I couldn’t blame them either; Halloween was a damn fine holiday.

I could usually blend into the sea of humanity fairly well, despite being cold, sparkly, and undead. But I refused to put on fake fangs or dress up just to fit in. I shrugged past the humans as they glanced leeringly at my beat up leather jacket and torn jeans. I looked the same tonight as I did every other night. And though it drew more attention to me, I wasn’t bothered by their glances. They would never truly guess what I was.

I wouldn’t classify the 21st century as my favorite century—a vampire just didn’t get the same respect today as he did in the sixteenth or seventeenth century—but modern times had their perks. For instance, my red eyes used to be a dead giveaway to all the superstitious bumpkins walking around. When I’d slip and let them see my eyes, I would be forced to make quick work of killing them before they did something foolish like raise a pitchfork army against me. Now, no one gave me a passing glance. Colored contacts were all the rage, and people just took me for an eccentric.

I also had to give modern times major “props” for the sexual revolution among women. That had been quite useful to me. Constantly being forced to woo my prey for months at a time before getting them naked bored me. I often bit them before I got all I wanted from them. The game was much more efficient in the present day. It took me a week at the most before these modern beauties were writhing in my bed, begging me to fuck them senseless. And I did … though likely not in the way they expected.

Tonight, I was hunting. The humans looked at me, drawn to me despite the terror coiling in their stomachs. I could see it in their minds, the fleeting fear that they pushed away as quickly as it came. Their patent denial of their natural instincts was so useful to me. It was almost too easy. When I found my target, I didn’t have to worry about fear driving them away. I didn’t even need to work for them. I simply stood and stared … they always came to me.

Javamomma0921 also tells us her Edward is out of character, and that is true in relation to his diet and the complete lack of guilt for his blood-sucking ways, and indeed, his attitude to women.  But when this Edward and his 400-year-old, cold dead heart meets his Bella – quite a mysterious and self-assured lady – he loves her every bit as much as Canonward loves his.  Don’t ask me to explain why, but that fact alone allows me to gloss over the taking of human life and wish him an eternal HEA.  Okay, I admit it, Edward being so thrilling, primal and sexy helps too 😉 What a sucker I am for a dark, hot Vampireward – no pun intended.

Halloween ~ Cared Cullen's Photos

And now for something completely different…

Murder at Masen Manor by SparklingTwilight

Murder at Masen Manor ~ Four friends, a creepy ghost story, and a haunted house come together to create a night one of them will never forget. Halloween o/s

Rated: Fiction M – English – Mystery/Humor – Bella · Edward – Words: 12,033 – Reviews: 50 – Favs: 134 – Follows: 38 – Published: 10-31-10 – Status: Complete – id: 6442753

This spooky story gave me whiplash! Honestly, I vacillated between being scared and holding my breath as I read frantically, and giggling like a sugared-up schoolgirl.

BPOV

I hate horror movies.

I hate all things creepy, spooky, macabre, disturbing…

I pretty much hate anything and everything that can be associated with Halloween; spiders, ghosts, goblins, witches, ghouls, skeletons, gore, bats, webs, hockey masks, zombies, vampires, and last but not least…

Dense fog.

How the hell did I get roped into this?

“Edward,” I whimpered, squeezing my boyfriend’s hand tightly as he slowly navigated the truck through the overgrown path and fog that was so thick it hung like impenetrable curtains around us. The screeching of the branches scraping the sides and roof of the truck, as we pushed forward at a snail’s pace, had chills running down my spine and gooseflesh permanently marking the skin over my entire body. “I hate this…you know I don’t like spooky stuff. Do we have to do this?”

“Bella…” His laughing voice trailed off as he squeezed my hand back and shook his head at me. “It’ll be fine. Emmett and I used to come here all the time. There’s nothing to be afraid of.”

Mmmh Edward, why don’t I believe you?

I fancy SparklingTwilight stirred the perfect portion of essential into a bubbling cauldron: a vial of great characters, a touch of creepiness, a pinch of fun, and a sprinkling of romance to produce Murder at Masen Manor.  I doubt she followed a spell book though, just her own inherent skill at storytelling.

I felt I was sitting around a campfire inhaling the heady scent of wood smoke, while a lone eerie voice cut through the night air as the firelight flickered scarily across their face, and every gust of wind was hand of the undead – ghosting across my back. Oooh, I’m as bad as Bella for being a wimp and for getting carried away…what did this terrifying tale do to me? LOL

*Reviews by Midnight Cougar*

Halloween, also known as All Hallows’ Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31st. It’s well-known for its haunting and ominous imagery, and for those of us who enjoy a damn good horror tale, it presents the opportunity to read the creative and daunting genre of horror-filled, suspenseful writing. So, in keeping with that scary theme, today I bring you two tales of death, but in two totally different presentations!

Master of Puppets banner

Master of Puppets ~ I’m pulling your strings. Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams. Blinded by me, you can’t see a thing. Just call my name, ’cause I’ll hear you scream. A collab between darkNnerdy, Livie79, and Raggdolly.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Horror/Suspense – Chapters: 6 – Words: 6,041 – Reviews: 89 – Favs: 32 – Follows: 65 – Updated: 10-23-13 – Published: 10-18-13 – id: 9774726

This haunting collaboration between master storytellers darkNnerdy, Livie79, and Raggdolly is one that will make you shiver and shake, one that epitomizes the theme of thrilling blood and guts horror at Halloween, and one that will have you anxiously waiting for updates to see what the man behind the mask with the bloody machete…will do next!

Silver moonlight sliced through the trees, casting long shadows that danced over the leaf-littered forest floor. In a clearing, among the deafening sound of thousands of crickets, stood a man. The blade of his machete glinted in the moonlight. Dark red blood dripped from the tip and splatted onto the dried leaves below. He exhaled heavily, his hot breath billowing up in a fog as it hit the crisp night air.

His eyes narrowed behind his mask as he stared at the cabin across the clearing. The lights were out, and to anyone passing by, it would seem deserted, empty. But he knew better. She was inside. The only one left of her ten person group who’d decided to take a last minute camping trip before the weather turned cold. …

He stood over her, a sinister smile gracing his lips that were hidden behind a blood covered mask. With one last satisfying glance at her blood-soaked body and mangled blonde hair, he waltzed out of the cabin and toward his home. There he would wait, hidden in the shadows, until the next group of unfortunate fools decided to go camping.

~*~*~**~*~**~*~*~**~**~*~*~**~~*~*~**~*~**~*~*~**~**~*~*~**~**~*~*

Less than a hundred miles away, Bella threw a duffel bag into the back of her jeep and slammed the door closed. Grabbing her best guy’s hand, she flashed him a warm smile and pressed her lips to his. “Is everyone ready?”

He grinned and tugged her closer. “Yeah, we’re taking three cars so no one is crowded. Are you sure you’re up for this?

Nodding in reassurance, she slipped behind the wheel. “Yeah, baby. Of course. I love camping.”

*raises eyebrows* ‘Cause, yeah, you know what is happening next, right? As Bella and E (maybe Edward?), Esme and Carlisle, Kate and Garrett, and Angela and Ben – a group of good friends looking for some partying time away from real life – make their way to these ominous cabins in the “beautiful” woods. They have no idea what kind of frightening fun they’ll really have or what in fact awaits them…

Checking herself over in the mirror, she [Bella] grabbed her phone and headed for the other cabin.

When she pushed the door open, she was assaulted with Kate’s drunken giggles. “Bella, tell E that I can totally out drink him.

Falling onto the couch beside him, Bella gave Kate an indulgent smile. “E,” Bella said, her tone serious, her expression blank. “Kate can totally drink you under the table.”

The room was silent for a moment before everyone double over with laughter. Drinks flowed and stories were exchanged. The light, happy atmosphere a stark contrast to the evil lurking outside the windows. The man moved without sound from vehicle to vehicle. Cutting wires and ripping cables, he disabled their vehicles one after the other.

His hot breath fanned around his masked face like a puff of smoke as adrenaline coursed through his veins. Satisfied, he slipped through the cover of trees and to his home. Once inside, he fell onto his sofa and closed his eyes. He thought about all of the blood he would spill, the pain and death he would cause. Running his thumb over the blade of his machete, he smiled when skin split and warm blood ran over the shiny silver surface. But it wasn’t enough. He wanted more. He wanted their blood.

And he would have it.

*shivers* And you will be shivering too, I can guarantee it! I read all six chapters in one sitting; I couldn’t stop, even though I was scared as Hell… The spine-chilling sense of suspense, of what will happen next, does not disappoint in this disturbing yet captivating tale of death, blood and gruesome murder! Enjoy! *grins evilly*

Til Death Do Us Part by up2late

Edward lives a lonely existence in his career as a mortician. Will a chance meeting with a certain brunette bring all of his fantasies to life? Rated M for hot, funeral home lemon! E/B O/S

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance – Edward, Bella – Words: 6,744 – Reviews: 21 – Favs: 48 – Follows: 14 – Published: 05-13-11 – Status: Complete – id: 6988512

Cullen Funeral Home

What’s one of the things we think of most when considering Halloween? Yes, dead people and funeral parlours, and that’s exactly where this little one shot it set…in The Cullen Funeral Home. Edward has been the “owner and operator of The Cullen Funeral Home for a mere decade, not one hundred years” and as he tells us, now that he’s buried all his family, that at the age of twenty-nine, he is “all alone in the world,” well, except for, “the dead that passed through my doors,” he says. I know it sounds like a morbid and sad tale – but then this is Halloween, right? *wink* – but have no fear because “Bella. Bella Swan” is here to breathe new life into Edward’s dull and lonesome life…

Her hands fluttered nervously as she dug into her briefcase. Withdrawing a stack of business cards, she pushed one across the desk. I reached for it as quickly as I could, ensuring another jolt when our fingers touched. I couldn’t seem to wipe the smile off my face that stayed put longer and longer each time I touched this fascinating woman. Reluctantly, I looked away from her to the card. It read, “Til Death Do Us Part.”

“It was Alice’s idea. I worry it might be a little tacky. I mean, who wants to hire a wedding planner with a name like that, I know. Like you just started your new life together and if you book your funeral when you put down your reception hall deposit, you get half off your casket. I mean, we don’t have that sort of a deal… but I just feel like it’s a little callous. Sorry. You don’t have to take those. I realize it’s a little silly.”

I refused to let her take back the stack of cards that were on my desk.

“No!” I practically shouted as her hand tried to tug mine free from the pile. She jumped in surprise at my tone. “I mean, no, it’s really a great idea. Of course I’ll hand out your cards. A lot of people could use some guidance when it comes to funerals. More than I can give them anyway. Besides, you seem like you’d be really good with people.”

There was that blush again. “You don’t seem so bad yourself.”

“When you spend your life living above a funeral home, you become a little reclusive. A little out of touch.”

“Not to me.” She spoke quietly and I felt my heart and cock lurch at the same time.

Oh, yes, LOTS of things cum, I mean, come to life in Edward’s funeral home showroom, and maybe even a fantasy is lived out on top of a “mahogany casket,” by the end of this humourous,  somewhat strange, and quirkily romantic *lol* tale!

Rescission by GeekChic12 

Recission by GeekChic12 banner

*Made by Twilly*

Rescission ~ We met. We got off. We went home. We weren’t lovers. We weren’t even friends. We were f- buddies. It worked… Until it didn’t. AH, ExB.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Drama – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 11 – Words: 27,416 – Reviews:  1,557 – Favs: 1,305 – Follows: 1,986 – Updated: 09-22-13 – Published: 07-26-13 – Status: Complete – id: 9533161

Rescission by GeekChic12 is a short but consuming story; it’s one I read as a WiP, where I vied for updates, and dropped everything to read them. As stated in the final author’s note, “In contract law, rescission has been defined as the unmaking of a contract for the mutual benefit of both parties.” And that is the definite crux of this Edward and Bella love (?) story, as they begin a mutual “fuck-buddy” relationship that is hot…and well, HOT! Let’s define the beginning of their mutual agreement…

My body knew his so well—his touch, his smell, his taste. And what it felt like when he tasted me. But my mind reeled. We didn’t go out in public together. We had a system. It started with a text. It might be a direct I need a fuck, or a more explicit I want to hear your fingers sliding in and out of your pussy as you suck my dick, with a time and location.

We met. We got off. We went home. We weren’t lovers. We weren’t even friends. We were fuck-buddies. It worked. To keep it working, we had rules. A contract of sorts.

Ah, but, did it work? And what happens if – and when – those “rules” get blurred or “bent”? Because when Bella’s boss, Dr. Rose Cullen, decides Dr. Swan, needs to meet her hot bartender brother, Edward Cullen, that is exactly what happens, and things might just get a bit more complicated… *wink*

Excerpt from Chapter 1

BPOV

Sitting in a booth in a trendy Seattle restaurant, Dr. Cullen’s husband, Emmett, was cracking us up with his unique take on life as a stay-at-home dad—from shooting down philandering mommies in their playgroup to adding their three-year-old neighbor to his ever-growing list of boys who would never be allowed to date his daughters.

“Just the other day, Lily went…”

I didn’t register anything else Emmett said after I glanced toward the door and saw him.

I noticed his distinctive swagger before I even glanced at his face. It was less of a walk and more of a sex-prowl. How could he use that walk so casually, in the middle of a busy restaurant? And more importantly, what the fuck was he doing here?

Would he think this broke our agreement if he saw me on a date?

I looked down and away from him, trying to hide behind my hair. Maybe he wouldn’t notice me. I peeked over again, and Rosalie and Emmett shared a confused look before peering over their shoulders. He was headed straight for us.

I silently chanted, “Turn. Turn. Turn,” in my head.

Rosalie looked back at me for a moment with an excited smile before turning back toward him, standing to offer a quick hug. His eyes widened as he caught sight of me just before her arms went around him. “Edward, I’m so glad you made it,” she said. “I was getting a little worried.”

Of fucking course. There’re only about four million people in the Seattle metropolitan area, half of whom are men. Why wouldn’t ‘E’, the barman I’d met a couple months ago, also be Dr. Cullen’s brother, Edward, who owns a restaurant?

And my blind date.

I was pulled from my thoughts when Rosalie said my name. “Isabella, this is my brother, Edward Cullen, famous restaurateur—”

Fuck-buddy Rule #5: No meeting each other’s friends and family—no good can come from this.

Rule status: Bent

And so the rescission begins… At the end of each chapter, we learn the “fuck-buddy rule” pertaining to that chapter’s events, and its consequent “rule status.” But, as the story progresses, it appears those rules are more difficult to abide by, and internal struggles ensue, especially for Dr. Swan. Edward and Bella do continue to be…something – it’s complex, hot-as-hell, very sexy and sometimes even sweet, but when things inevitably change and emotions do become involved and intertwined… What does that continue to do to those rules? Where does that leave Edward and Bella’s agreement of no kisses, no emotional attachment? Well, I’ll let you discover that for yourself as you read this sweet, complete story, because I thoroughly enjoyed watching the – *cough* disintegration *cough* of their rules – progression of their relationship.  After all, aren’t rules meant to be broken? *grins wickedly*

Someday ~ Social reject Bella Swan finds her whole life changing before her eyes after her first encounter with the cute boy at the Concrete Canal. Three years later, she shows her uppity classmates that she’s so much more than they ever thought possible.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Angst/Romance – Bella & Edward – Words: 7,581 – Reviews: 81 – Favs: 228 – Follows: 67 – Published: 10-16-10 – Status: Complete – id: 6403322

I had to share this inspirational one shot with you today; to say I was moved, and it touched my heart deeply, would be very apt. Someday has been around for quiet some time, as it was a winning entry in the 2010 A Picture Says it All Anonymous Contest, but I just recently had the pleasure of reading it. IMHO, the talented author, A Cullen Wannabe, has portrayed a relatable Bella with a beautiful soul, as the story tells the tale of a high school girl who endures the daily ridicule and bullying by her peersfor a variety of, sadly, typical reasons. And for anyone else who has ever suffered from this, I know you will empathize with her.

Your heart will also break for Bella, as did mine, when her eighteenth birthday becomes, “the Worst Day Ever!” But, what is truly captivating about the story is the heartwarming turn of events, when a new student in town helps Bella find a new lease on life…that all starts on a Concrete Canal wall…

BPOV

I don’t know how long I stayed like that, hiding from the world, but suddenly a sound made me look up in surprise. A few feet to the right of me and further down the bank, near where my bag landed, sat a boy with hair that reflected in the sunlight with hints of red and brown. He faced the water with a guitar in his hand and strummed it quietly. I watched in awe as he began to sing, his warm vibrant voice echoing hauntingly off the concrete and water surrounding him.

“When you’re down and all hope is lost, just remember life is short.

Shallow people break your heart, beat you down and make you hurt.

But time will pass quickly dear, before you know you’ve moved on,

To a place and a time not dictated by the small people you have fought.”

Stay strong, stand tall, be beautiful, you see,

Because no matter what they say, you’re beautiful to me.

Don’t crumble dear, stand strong and clear, be who you want to be.

Be individual and free.

And someday they will all see what only a few of us can see.”

He continued to strum, never looking at me, and yet it almost felt like he was singing for me. His tune continued on before another tune intermingled a moment before it swapped out completely, his fingers nimbly plucking out the tune of Happy Birthday. I gasped, staring with wide eyes with my hand over my mouth as he glanced over his shoulder with a small smirk.

I stared for a long moment before finally he stopped strumming and nodded his head, as if he were trying to tug me over with the motion alone. I faltered for a moment before slowly rising to my feet and carefully moving the few feet to stand beside him. He looked up with a smile as his hands returned to strumming.

“I was beginning to think you weren’t going to actually come over here. Would have been a shame to not get to meet the girl that inspired in the course of a few seconds the first song I’ve actually been able to write on the spot in years.”

I reached out to grab my bag, tugging it toward me awkwardly, not knowing what to say. He just chuckled at me before stopping his hands again to reach his right one over toward me.

“I’m Edward, nice to meet you.”—–

Yes, I sighed and swooned, too. And that is only the beginning of this one shot full of unconditional love, real life, music and eventually a strong, empowered Bella, which was the pièce de résistance for me as a Twilight fic readerwell, that and Guitarward. *be still my heart*

CSI Seattle WA by Michaelmas54

CSI Seattle WA ~ A chance discovery in the forest near Forks starts a series of events that could prove cataclysmic, not just for the people involved. A story of love, passion, murder, mystery and horror and rated M mainly for the passionate bits. A story of about 89,000 words that will hopefully keep you on the edge of your sofa! Updated in ‘episodes’ of 3 chapters at a time, every Saturday. 

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Drama/Romance – Chapters: 22 – Words: 79,781 – Reviews: 406 – Updated: 9-28-13 – Published: 8-17-13 – Bella & Edward

This is one of those stories that made me curse everyday life for encroaching on my need to consume, right from the compelling opening, the existing 68,726 words in one sitting.  Yes, it’s that good!

It starts with an intriguing prologue where an arm is discovered in the forest near Forks, then quickly moves to Forks high school ten years earlier. Bella and Edward are partners in Biology – now you might be thinking, where have I heard that before – but believe me, while there are some fun nods to canon, there is nothing familiar or clichéd about this refreshing plotline.

Bella is a lovely, young girl who takes the chance on asking her shy, geeky lab partner to accompany her to prom. OME! What an unforgettable prom night it turns out be – for both of them…

Edward looked into her eyes for a few moments as if he was trying to preserve the memory of her face, then he kissed her gently at first and then he took her bottom lip into his mouth and sucked it while Bella whimpered and moaned with pleasure. His breathing accelerated and Bella felt herself moving backwards until she was pressed up against the wall of the house. His tongue was in her mouth now and as he was devouring her he grabbed hold of the material of her dress and pulled it upwards, then he lifted her up off the floor, wrapped her legs around his body and pressed himself against her. She could feel his arousal right where she was on fire and their kisses became more passionate and frenzied as they writhed and moaned in a tight embrace. Edward’s hands were moving over Bella’s body while her hands were buried in his silky hair. Tears had started to form in her eyes as a feeling of pure ecstasy overwhelmed her. This kiss would live in her memory for the rest of her life and she didn’t want it to stop.

Edward broke the kiss and rested his head on Bella’s shoulder while he regained his composure. He was seriously aroused but was not prepared to take this any further tonight. He had never thought himself capable of this level of passion and he felt totally out of control. He knew he had to stop as it would be unfair of him to have sex with Bella tonight, which is what he wanted to do. He was leaving Forks very soon and would probably never see her ever again as his father was selling up and following him to the East Coast. He carefully put Bella back down onto her feet and wiped a tear from her cheek with his fingers.

“I’ll never forget tonight as long as I live Bella. You are a beautiful girl and a beautiful person.”

Move on ten years and DanielGaleward is all grown up. *pause while I swoon at visions of Edward in a lab coat* He is a highly respected and successful scientist, although his personal life does not match his professional one. Unfortunately for him, he has settled for content, believing blissfully happy is not something he will ever be…that is of course until a chance reunion with the beautiful, brave Bella, now a crime scene investigator. Their sweet romance and their powerful passion for each other play out against the perfectly planned backdrop of crime investigation and intrigue, with both their professional lives and their families woven finely through it.

As a reader, having the benefit of looking from the outside in and seeing the overall picture, I have a feeling I know where this story is going – and who dunnit. But, given how Michaelmas54 cleverly inserts a twist when you least expect, and how what I consider genuine clues could be red herrings, I’m not willing to bet on it. I am, however, not above bribing Michaelmas54 to post faster than her weekly schedule of three chapters every Saturday.

Hot Commodity by blueeyedcherry

Hot Commodity ~ Edward Cullen is used to getting everything he wants. Good looking, wealthy, and charming, NYC’s most reputable playboy doesn’t take “no” for an answer. Then he meets Isabella Swan and all bets are off … Except for one. *AH/OOC*

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Humor – Chapters: 31 – Words: 183,669 – Reviews: 1768 – Updated: 9-25-13 – Published: 9-5-11 – Bella & Edward

Hip Hip Horray! Three cheers for blueeyedcherry who recently completed her Masters!

Whilst I’m thrilled for her -and proud of her achievements- I’m also thrilled for me because Hot Commodity is close to completion!! WoooHooo *runs around throwing confetti*

So, what’s so special about Hot Commodity? Apart from witty banter, and a snarky, intelligent and sexy Bella, there is also an extremely successful, intelligent, arrogant, womanising Edward who may just need bringing down a peg or two…

“Do you know anything about iPhones? Mine seems to be broken.” I hit her with the puppy dog eyes and a sheepish grin, holding the phone out to her. Her friend rolled her eyes and tapped her foot impatiently. I recognized her from somewhere but my scotch-induced stupor prevented me from remembering any details.

What’s wrong with it? Not that I’d know anything about it, I haven’t progressed past the flip phone era, but I could try to fix it.” She took a gulp of champagne, probably to stop her nervous ramblings.

“Your number isn’t in it,” I said matter-of-factly. I was prepared for an eye roll, followed by a nervous smile, followed by the girl giving me her number and having several cocktails with me before going back to my place.

This girl was different. She choked on laughter and the champagne sprayed out her nose and all over the front of my Armani suit. Her brown eyes grew wide and her hand flew over her mouth in embarrassment.

“I’m so sorry! I can’t believe I did that! But really, can you blame me? Who uses pick up lines these days?”

I chuckled despite myself. Under normal circumstances I’d be furious with this bitch. This suit had cost me almost two grand. Her eyes and her smile somehow managed to extinguish my anger.

 “Don’t worry beautiful, with tits like those, you don’t need to apologize for anything.” This girl was a spitfire and I probably should have known better than to speak to her that way. Her expression quickly changed from one of mild-embarrassment to one of all out rage. She handed her champagne to her friend, took two steps towards me, drew her arm back, and WHACK! – slapped me (harder than I’d ever been slapped, might I add) across the face. Then, adding insult to injury, she set my phone on the table next to me, and poured the remainder of her champagne all over it.

 “That should fix your problem. Now you can’t run your disgusting mouth to any of the poor women in your phone book ever again.” She spun around and grabbed her friend’s wrist. “C’mon Alice. This asshole doesn’t deserve our company.” They disappeared into the crowd before I even had a chance to process what had happened.

Of course, they do meet again. Edward’s sidekick and partner in crime, Jasper, goads him into a ridiculous bet. A bet that, once accepted, will change their lives forever…

The humour is quick, the sex is smouldering and the relationships believable. I love and hate Edward in equal measures -actually I grew to love him pretty quickly –  I rant at the screen at his behaviour and stupidity, but delight in his roguishness. I’m right behind Bella one minute and hoping to kick her ass the next! But they’re so bloody loveable whatever their flaws.

This story has it all, twists, turns and a more than a few “oh shit” moments; I find myself grinning as I read and hoping they find their gold-plated HEA. It’s a real page turner that has kept me gripped from day one.

It won’t be long now until I know their fate, blueeyedcherry is posting one more regular chapter and two epilogues…believe me, it’s been well worth the wait. ❤

There’s a Word For It by Eiluned Price

There’s a Word For It ~ I hadn’t liked 17-year-old boys even when I was 17. So what is it about Edward Cullen that’s so compelling? Whatever it is, I can’t afford to find out.

Twilight – Rated: M – English – Romance/Drama – Chapters: 8 – Words: 49,328 – Reviews: 573 – Updated: 9-8-13 – Published: 2-26-13 – Bella & Edward

I’ve been dying to share this story with you all, but it’s so unique I haven’t found a category to post it into until now.  And now that I have my opportunity, I’m finding myself lost for words, despite the title!

Imagine Bella never makes it to Forks as a teenager, but a twist of fate brings her as an adult – a cool, smart, sophisticated and confident adult – to teach AP English at Forks High School. Guess who fate would place in her senior class? Seventeen-year-old Edward and Alice, that’s who. How disturbing would it be for her to find herself sickeningly enthralled by a teenage boy?

I misjudged how long I needed to get back to Building 3 from the cafeteria, and by the time I arrived in my classroom, my 15 AP students were already in their seats. Fortunately, I had left a “do now” assignment on the whiteboard, and they were quietly writing. I dropped my lunch bag into my desk drawer, grabbed my clipboard with the class roster, and turned to face my students as the bell rang.

A boy with wild reddish-brown hair and a girl with spiky dark hair were toward the back, a little off to the side of everyone else.

The Cullens.

Holy fucking shit. I wish I had been able to prepare myself, as the Clapp had suggested, and not because the Cullens looked as if they wanted to tear my throat out. They were both stunning, the boy especially, possessors of a pale beauty that seemed alien not only to Forks, but to the entire planet, cool and composed as the rest of us wilted in the heat. The girl beamed at me, light hazel eyes sparkling, while the boy stared at me as if I were some unidentifiable species of insect. I flushed hot under his scrutiny, and realized that I was staring too, and in a most improper-for-a-teacher way. I walked to the windows and cranked one open, welcoming the breeze on my cheeks.

I turned back around, and avoiding the gazes of the distracting Cullens, welcomed my new students and said, “I know it’s the rule here to use honorifics and last names, but I’d like to know what first names you prefer, so tell me as I do the roll call.” I looked down at my roster. “Alvarez?”

“Gracie,” came the answer from a brunette with Abercrombie emblazoned on her faded T-shirt and an accent in her voice. Mexican, I guessed, born Graciela.

“Banner?”

“Brett.” Principal Bob’s son had Fitch on his shirt.

“Crowley?”

“Tiffany.” Victoria’s Secret. Well.

“Cullen, A.?”

“Alice,” a beautiful soprano announced, and I finally looked in the Cullens’ direction again. Jesus. The only logos on this girl’s clothes were discreetly stitched onto the lining, and probably said something like Gucci. Or Chanel, if the bouclé jacket she was wearing was the real thing.

Not that it mattered. The important thing was the Alice was no longer beaming, but grim-faced. And Edward looked as if he was about to throw up, his head down, his hand over his mouth and nose.

“And this is Edward,” she added, indicating the boy in the desk next to her with a graceful wave. “His throat hurts a little today, so it’s best if he doesn’t talk.”

“Oh, that’s too bad,” I said, though I didn’t believe her. The boy looked as if he was in utter agony, not just as if had a sore throat. I thought of suggesting that he go see the nurse, but reconsidered. He was a senior who could decide for himself.

I returned to calling the roll, which ended with Teague, Eliza (Hollister). I went on to collect the summer homework and hand out books – both times, Alice Cullen glided up to the front of the room to drop off her and her brother’s summer homework essays, and to collect their copies of “Four Greek Plays” – and start the introduction to “Oedipus Rex,” the first work we’d be tackling.

As I conducted the business of the day, I kept surreptitiously glancing at Edward Cullen, without intending to. His head was still bowed, but his hand was now gripping the edge of his desk. Even from my position at the front of the room, I could see the muscles and tendons tensed in the forearm extending from the pushed-up sleeves of his white button-down shirt. Periodically, his sister put her hand on his shoulder – in reassurance? In warning? I couldn’t tell.

All the while, the other students seemed unaware of the bizarre tableau being acted out behind them. They never looked at the Cullens, never talked to them or interacted with them in any way. It was as if they were invisible to everyone but me.

I glanced up at the wall clock – the period was about to end. As my eyes flickered down, they met a pair of black ones. Edward Cullen was staring at me now with an undisguised, burning hostility.

Then the bell rang, I blinked, and the next second both Cullens were gone. What the fuck?

That was a long excerpt, but I wanted you to read first hand how a. damned fabulous Bella is in this fic; and b. how awesomely sexy Eiluned Price is as an author. Or is it just me who gets excited by incredibly intelligent authors who can draw you into their world as seamlessly as a – er – as a – seamless pair of panties? Oh look, I’m not at my best here – just go read the story, will you? A little bird tells me it’s about to update to chapter 9.
