Random Rita ~ Friday Feature Fics!


Evenin’, ladies!

Got another bag of goodies for you today, so gather ’round, gather ’round!

Now, it’s not often I rec a particular author twice in a row but Lara’s givin’ us a Prisonward and, even with only one chapter up, I’m absolutely rivited!

ROB ATTACK{banner by MarieCarro}


An imprisoned man who’s run out of options to prove his innocence, a young attorney volunteering her time to help the wrongly convicted, and the actual criminal walking around free for ten years. The consequences of a crime are far reaching and often unseen.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Drama/Hurt/Comfort – Bella, Edward – Words: 1,306 – Reviews: 58 – Favs: 103 – Follows: 210 – Published: Oct 5 – id: 12177956

Ex Delicto ~ “from a transgression”; indicating the consequence of a crime.

I found myself drawn to the files of the man about my age, who had been sitting in a cell for ten years for something he might not have done. I normally waited to get a feel at the first visit, and I never accepted sexual assault cases.

This one had hooked me, though, and my mind continuously drifted back to the letter his mother included with his application. I had to go, needed to meet him and make the decision. I pictured a wrongly accused 19-year-old, sentenced to 15 years in prison when he knew he was entirely innocent. Then I pictured him being released in five years, having to register as an offender and not being able to get a job or a place to live.

Sighing heavily, I picked up my phone and looked at my schedule for tomorrow afternoon. I needed to see what I could do about this one and get the ball rolling before he spent another unnecessary day in that hellhole.

She already has 11 chapters written and says she’ll update once a week and not let it interrupt her other two stories!




The downside of high school: cafeteria food sucks, and sometimes, you’re cast as the weirdo. On the bright side, sometimes Edward Cullen is your best friend. Even if it is a secret.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Friendship/Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 14 – Words: 47,780 – Reviews: 915 – Favs: 620 – Follows: 1,223 – Updated:Sep 4 – Published: Feb 29 – id: 11815724

As I weave through the crowded hall, no one looks at me. That’s the only thing about crowds I can stand. I’m like a blind spot. In fact, my superhero name would probably be Blind-Spot Girl. Attention just bounces off me.

All Edward wants to do is hang out with me, in public. Like real friends do.

But I can’t, because I like not being noticed. I like not having people look at me. And if we hang out in public, and someone sees us, they’ll notice. They’ll start talking, and they’ll stare at me at school, and I don’t want that. I don’t know how to deal with that.

“I’m sorry,” I mumble, guilt settling in my gut, squirming and heavy. “It’s not that I don’t want to hang out. I just…” I trail off, ending with a shrug instead.

He shakes his head. “No, I know. It’s fine.”

We both know it isn’t.

Awww, bless their hearts! But don’t worry! Edward is slowly but surely and oh so carefully breakin’ through Bella’s painfully shy shell and it’s beautiful to behold!

You’re gonna love it!




Edward is a loner … always has been. The only people he’s ever loved are his parents and they were taken from him. The day he rides into town to bury his mother and father, he sees her.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Chapters: 6 – Words: 23,102 – Reviews: 544 – Favs: 311 – Follows: 529 – Updated: Sep 30 – Published: Jul 30 – id: 12076052

Taking one last long draw on his beer, he spies a group of women sitting at a round table, laughing, enjoying their evening. One of them in particular looks as if she wishes she were somewhere else, only smiling to appease the others.

Draining the last of his brew, he sets it down, slips out from his booth, and grabs his leather jacket. While he slips an arm into the sleeve, he makes eye contact with the brunette.

Her mouth goes dry the closer he gets, but when he walks past her, she slumps in disappointment. She notices the bad boy look about him; the tattoos, the leather, his day-old beard. Although he’s not the type of man she would typically go for, this man certainly has her insides reacting, especially when she hears the motorcycle fire up outside.

She’s never seen him around before, but he must be a local, otherwise the guys at the bar would be pestering him just to get him to leave. She shrugs and returns her focus to her friends.

You think it’s gonna end there? Naaaa!

As he tries to lift the engine off the repair rack and back onto the pallet, he loses his grip and his footing. In an attempt to regain his hold on the motor to avoid dropping it, his chest meets the propeller, and his back hits the ground. Managing to get to his knees, he rights the motor onto the pallet and absentmindedly rubs the sharp pain in his chest. When he pulls his wet hand back, he finds blood dripping through his fingers.

Looking down at his shirt, he sees it’s soaked with blood, and when he looks down through the neckline of his shirt, all he sees is blood and the meat of his pectoral muscle.

“Well, fuck,” he mutters.

Oh, and did I mention she’s a doctor?




When graduate student Isabella Swan decides to write her final paper on death row inmate Edward Masen, she promises her mother she won’t get too involved. She couldn’t have been more wrong. Rated M for language, content. B/E Mini Fic

Rated: Fiction M – English – Drama/Romance – Chapters: 13 – Words: 18,577 – Reviews: 1,191 – Favs: 1,285 – Follows: 582 – Updated: Feb 29, 2012 – Published: Aug 18, 2011 – Status: Complete – id: 7297320

For my “complete” offerin’, I’m goin’ back a ways to one of my favorite Prisonwards ever!

Dear Mr. Masen,

My name is Isabella Swan and I’m a graduate student at the University working on a research paper for my Criminology class. Our assignment is to research and present a paper on a subject of our choosing. I’ve chosen you Mr. Masen. I understand that your current situation limits visitors, but I would like a chance to speak with you. I look forward to hearing from you and the opportunity to learn more about you.


Isabella Swan

For the next two weeks, I waited by the door watching for the mail to come. Every day I was disappointed so I stopped looking for it.

“Hey Bella,” one of my neighbors called as they passed.

“Hey Ben.” I smiled and pulled the mail from my mailbox. I shuffled through the usual items and finally came to the last envelope. I recognized my handwriting right away and my heart jumped into my throat. He wrote back.

My fingers shook as I tore at the paper. There was one piece of paper inside. And it was the same one I’d sent him. I scanned my own letter until I noted the different handwriting at the bottom.

Not interested.

Yeah, like that’s gonna stop her! This girl isn’t gonna stop until she gets her way, even if it means bringin’ out the big guns…his family!

“You’re a persistent little one aren’t you?” He asked me, turning back towards the glass.

“You wouldn’t answer my letters.”

“I thought maybe you’d get the hint after I sent them back a few times, but apparently I was mistaken.”

“Mr. Masen, please agree to these interviews. I’m interested in your life, how you grew up, your family, what happened with Tanya. I want to hear all of it.”

“Nobody wants to hear any of it,” he said, turning angry. “Nobody.”

“I do.”

“I call bullshit.” 

“It’s not…bullshit!” I said, a little louder than I expected.

“How’d you get in here anyway?” He asked, seemingly curious.

“I used your sister’s driver’s license. She dropped it after we had lunch at the diner.”

“Alice talked to you?” His brow furrowed.


He tapped his finger slowly on the countertop as a smug smirk spread across his lips. “I’ll talk to my lawyer about arranging the interviews.” He stood from the chair. “And give my sister her ID back; she’s probably shitting a brick right now.”

“So…you’re saying yes?” I squeaked.

“I’m saying yes.”

An excerpt from one of their early interviews…it’s just tragic the low opinion Edward has always had of himself!

We’d covered a lot about his childhood. He got yanked from his parents’ house when he was four because of their drug habit and was placed in foster care. After that, it was a string of screw ups and shuffling. Different homes, different families, different schools. As he spoke about his experiences, I couldn’t help but think that the system failed him.

“Let’s see. My last foster dad had just kicked the ever living shit out of me.” He scratched his head. “Put me in the hospital, which is where I met Carlisle. He uh…took a liking to me I guess.”

“And why was that?”

“He thought he could…save me, or some bullshit.” He shook his head.

“Why is that bullshit? Being saved?”

“Because people like me don’t get saved, Bella.” He looked up at me and shrugged.

“People like you?”

He laughed under his breath. “I’m no good, you know that right?”

“How do I know that?”

“Because.” He looked down at his fingers. “That’s what they all tell you.”

Damn, this calls for a reread *sigh!*

What fics have you so intrigued you can’t put them down?

Happy Friday, y’all!

Random Rita ~ Friday Feature Fics!

AVI_wet rob

Evenin’, ladies!

Still recoverin’ from a bloody virus that cost me my precious TBR…may it rest in peace *whimper!*

Which means I haven’t read any completed fics since my last post but never fear!

I’ll be sharin’ three WIP’s I KNOW you’re gonna love as much as I do!


Poor Bloody Infantryman Eddie Masen can only be soothed by Base Hospital Nurse Isobel Swan. Canadianward and Scottishella, Flanders, 1915. O/S from the Age of Edward Contest, 2015. Now a multi-chapter fic that will post weekly. This story contains references to assault and horrors of war.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Hurt/Comfort – Chapters: 2 – Words: 9,280 – Reviews: 41 – Favs: 36 – Follows: 73 – Updated: Mar 16 – Published:Mar 9 – id: 11832268

Only two chapters in and I’m so hooked LOL!

Private Masen eyed his nurse as if she were a snake poised to strike. Isobel gestured at the screen propped in the corner.

“Kindly hurry up. There are other lads needing my attention. Ye may go behind there if ye wish, but ye shall nae be going back to the front until we have solved this. I dinnae ken what ye’re sae worrit about. Ye’ve nothing I havenae seen before.”

He released his breath in a long sigh and looked at his boots. He removed his belt and the khaki wool trench coat and set them on the examination table, turned his back and pulled off his sweater. Off came the long sleeved cotton shirt, leaving him in his sleeveless cotton undershirt. Isobel sucked in her breath.

He faced her, his mouth turned down, eyes glittering but lowered. “Do I have to show you more?”

She put one hand on his elbow and the other on his wrist, and inspected the welts that covered every inch. “How far does this extend?”


“These are hives.”


“How long have ye had them?”

His green eyes welled with tears but he would not let them fall. “Two weeks.”

She put her hands on her hips and clenched her teeth. “Since the winter uniform came out.”


“Ye foolish man!” She flapped her arms at him. “Why didnae ye tell anyone ye’re allergic to wool?”

When he raised his face to look at her, his eyes burned. “I tried to keep the summer uniform. I argued with my commanding officer. He told me that it wasn’t up to him.”

Isobel gawped at him. “Ye mean he knew you were allergic?”

“Not exactly.”


“He didn’t hear me out. Men who refuse to wear the uniform exactly as prescribed are court-marshalled.”

“But there must be exceptions!”

“They don’t care.”

Her voice went up with excitement. “They have tae care! Ye’re scratching your skin to ribbons and it’ll get infected! What use will ye be with the gangrene?”

Private Masen did not answer. She growled at him, stalked across the room, pulled a set of towels from the shelves and thrust them at him.

“Follow me!”

I’d like to think our soldiers get better treatment in this day and age ’cause if any of them had to go through what Edward was forced to endure…

She brought over a bottle of carbolic lotion and a bowl of paste, on a tray. “Lie down.” She took his wrist, brought it to the side of the table, and picked up the leather restraint to buckle him down. He pulled out of her grip.

“I don’t need that.”

She leaned over him, near enough to kiss. “Edward, ye’d nae like to hurt me, would you?”

He blinked. “I’d never hurt you.”

“A decorated officer broke a nurse’s jaw last week.”

He placed his hands in the restraints and allowed her to fasten them. He’d have preferred to face a hundred Huns.

“Thank you.” She stroked his hair. “It is gonna hurt.”

Edward blushed and turned his face away as she opened his dressing gown. He clenched his jaw and held his breath.

A cloth saturated with carbolic touched the worst of his wounds and he gasped. The more it penetrated, the worse it burned. “N-no, stop!”

“Ye maun have it, dearie.” Rapidly, Isobel washed him all over. When she swept the cloth across his inner thighs, he screamed.

Well, that was the worst of it…or was it? You know what to do LOL!




Front: noun…the foremost part or surface of anything ; a facade ; verb…to meet face to face. It’s all in the semantics, isn’t it? Bella Marie works all hours to pay off her father’s debts when she’s thrown from the pot into the fire.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Suspense/Crime – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 20 – Words: 25,098 – Reviews: 238 – Favs: 172 – Follows: 357 – Updated: Mar 14 – Published:Jan 21 – id: 11745042

Now, I’ve read a number of fics where Bella was forced to pay off Charlie’s debts in one way or another but there’s a twist to this tale you won’t see comin’!


“Bella Marie! Pick up!”

A young woman in a too tight pale blue cotton shirtdress, the top two buttons long gone, looks up from the order she is taking with a frozen smile and nods at the cook. She’ll be there in a moment.

Ding! Ding!

“Bella Marie! NOW!”

With a too big smile plastered across her face, one that does not quite reach her eyes, Bella Marie trays the three plates of food and double checks the ticket to be sure everything is alright before grabbing a stand. Fortunately, everything is okay and Bella Marie catches her reflection in the chrome trim surrounding the pass thru.

She sees her highly curled, heavily sprayed hair that rivals Reba in her height of fame and somewhere under the thick black liner, her dark brown eyes peer out. Twilight Diner has a reputation as a throwback to the fifties, a time when Happy Days and carhops thrived. It’s all part of the image James has tried to cultivate as a front for his other businesses.

Okay, so the diner is a front for something else. Edward is hidin’ something , too…

“Trust no one,” he whispers next to her ear. “Not everything you think you see is real. Not even things that I may tell you.”

Bella Marie silently follows him to an elevator and waits for it to arrive.

Bella Marie raises her chin. If he wants her to act proud, she will. No one will dare make her cower when she is with him.

Of this, she is certain.

“My job requires a certain image. Jake orders me to have a certain appetite for beautiful women. Too many of his clients see it as a necessary evil. And since he is constantly watched, I am constantly watched. You are just the latest he has had show up, to those people. But remember, it is not always real.”

Even Bella’s reality isn’t what she thinks it is but you’ll have to read to find the clue to the mystery of how she got into her current predicament!




Forks was a polar opposite of Arizona, and it was perfect. I just wanted to figure out how to live again. Mom was dead, which meant I was safe now. They didn’t have any use for me anymore. I just wanted to be alone, it was easier… but Edward Cullen didn’t do easy. I don’t know why he kept torturing himself by trying to be my friend. Rated M, BPOV/EPOV.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Hurt/Comfort/Angst – [Bella, Edward] – Chapters: 5 – Words: 15,910 – Reviews: 122 – Favs: 119 – Follows: 238 – Updated: Mar 14 – Published: Mar 4 – id: 11823555

There are a number of stories in circulation where Bella has been stricken mute by some tragedy or other but, as you know, each author tackles the whys and wherefores in a different way! To me, the difference in Break My Silence is all about Edward!

“Mr. Cullen! If you interrupt my class one more time-“

“Fuck, I didn’t do anything!” I growled, glaring at Crowley, who just gave me a shit-eating grin.

“That’s it! Take your foul language over to the principal,” the old hag hissed at me. I grabbed my shit, glaring at her, before storming off and walking down the hall. I took my time, the longest route that was possible to take in this tiny building, so I could calm down before getting to the office. It’s a reflex to turn when someone kicks your fucking chair, I hadn’t even gotten a second to say a God damn thing.

She was still pissed at me for pointing out her sub-par education two years ago. But seriously, a math teacher should know that an equilateral triangle can be split evenly in three ways. Every damn side is the same.

I have no idea where they find the excuses for teachers for this school.

Cocky much? You have no idea!

“You… can’t talk?” I asked in clarification. Every tear that escaped her eyes was like a punch to the gut.

She nodded, and I stood there in disbelief and an oncoming sense of horror. She sprang, taking a run for escape, leaving her basket of groceries on the floor. I was cemented in place, I couldn’t have stopped her.

It wasn’t that she hadn’t wanted to talk to me. Well, it was probably, but it wasn’t the reason for her silence.

I looked down at her abandoned basket, frowning even more. I looked at the corner shelf, and assumed that she was looking for sour cream. Not knowing why she’d been frowning, I looked through the containers, finding that most of them expired within the next two days.

Feeling determined, I dug through to get to the back and got another container, then brought her basket up to the cash. I paid for her groceries, figuring it was the least I could do when I’d sent her away running. Then I drove over to the Chief’s place. He was only a few blocks away from my house.

I still had her note pad, and wrote her out a note on top.

I’m really sorry for scaring you Bella, and ruining your grocery trip. It was a dick move. I hope I see you around again soon, and if so, if you let me say hi I swear I won’t scare you off again. Take care. –Edward

I set her writing block down on the bag of groceries on her front step, and then rang her door bell before going back to my car. I made my way home, needing to turn the ringers off on the phones in case the school called while mom and dad were home.

See what I mean? So, if you love Edward already, you’re gonna completely ADORE Charlie…trust me on that!

Happy Friday, y’all!

Evenin’ ladies!

As you may {or may not} know, Jaxon22 has pulled all of her fics in preparation of publishin’ A Pound of Flesh in June of 2015!

While I am extremely happy for her, I deeply mourn the loss of Dancing in the Dark, which was still a WIP when she pulled it *sigh!*

It was one of my favorite Daddywards…I mean, doesn’t this summary just make you wanna scream like a fangirl??

“You can’t start a fire, you can’t start a fire without a spark. This gun’s for hire even if we’re just dancing in the dark.” Immersed in a world of dance, drink, drugs, and women, Edward Cullen is the ultimate bachelor. Until he receives a late night phone call that changes everything.

Rob Attack

Edward was a manwhore…a Magic Mike kinda stripper, and imaginin’ his hair, make-up and outfits {or lack thereof} was a huge turn-on, as well as how he handled sudden and totally unexpected fatherhood LOL!

Well, I read the WIP again {many times} and gnashed my teeth, wept and wailed until I remembered a similar summary and rushed to my TBR for a thorough search!

Yes! *fist pump!*

When man-whore, foul-mouthed Edward’s life takes an unexpected turn, he’s left with a baby to raise. With the help of a friendly neighbor, he learns sometimes the unexpected could be the best thing that’s ever happened. All Human

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Edward, Bella – Chapters: 38 – Words: 142,732 – Reviews: 6,279 – Favs: 5,861 – Follows: 4,722 – Updated: Dec 2, 2013 – Published: Nov 4, 2011 – Status: Complete – id: 7520210

Chicks had a thing for doctors; it wasn’t a secret. I learned that fact my third year in med school. The scrubs, lab coat, fuck, the stethoscope… it all just beckoned them. They flocked to me, and dear God, I loved it. Like her, the girl under me. She wanted me for my profession. Her first words were, and I’m fucking quoting here: “Let’s play doctor”. Hell yeah, baby. We’ll play doctor. We’ll play doctor all fucking night.

It didn’t take long for me to blow my load. It felt fucking amazing. I passed out next to the chick, praying she’d be gone by the time I woke up. Thankfully, I was right. I didn’t see her again….

Famous last words LMAO! Yeah, he might not be a stripper but our Doctorward IS a First Class manwhore!

I made my way up to my apartment. As I unlocked the door, New Girl’s door opened, and she bolted out.

“Oh, good! You’re home. You uh… had a visitor, and since I didn’t want her waiting in the hall, I invited her in,” she said. “Please, don’t be mad.”

I cocked my head. “Visitor? Why would I be mad?”

“I didn’t know what she wanted, but I think you’ll be happy,” she said. “Maybe.”

A woman I vaguely recognized came waltzing out of New Girl’s apartment. I couldn’t quite place her, but I knew her somehow. She smiled, switching the car seat she was carrying to the other hand.

Chick that wanted to play doctor. “Yeah, sorry. What…what do you need?” I said, looking at the car seat with a blanket over it.

Please, fuck no.

“I have great news.” Somehow, I seriously doubted I’d find it that great. “You’re a daddy!”

What I love most about this fic are the beautifully crafted relationships between each and every character! Especially Edward’s relationship with baby Sofia, or Little One as he incessantly calls her {the only thing I found a tiny bit annoyin’} and Bella, or New Girl…the name he gave her before he really got to know her!

Fatherhood sequel. Five year old Sofia is starting school and Edward can’t help but feel his baby is growing up too fast. While he and Bella try to juggle a hyper little girl, careers, and their relationship, they find out their lives are about to change drastically once more. All Human.

And here they go again LMAO!

“You’re…pregnant.” I smiled, laying my hand against hers. “With my baby.”

She laughed. “Of course it’s yours! Who else’s would it be?”

I pulled her into my arms and pressed my lips to hers. Our tongues moved together as my hand slid under her shirt and laid against her flat stomach. In just a few short months, I’d feel a baby move. My baby. I fucking hated that I didn’t get that with Little One, so I was already planning on making the most out of this. Bella, my wife, was having my baby. Little One would be a big sister, and I’d be a dad again. Maybe I wouldn’t be so freaked out over every little thing this time. Who the hell was I kidding? Yes, I would.

“I love you so much,” I said, pressing my forehead to hers. “Bella, I’ll never be able to thank you enough for loving me —for trusting me to be the man you thought I could be. We’re going to be parents again. Holy shit.”

She pecked my lips softly. “If this baby’s first word is a curse, I’m divorcing you.”

I laughed, picking her up off of the couch. “Sure, Nibbles, sure.”

I carried her upstairs, trying to be quiet so we wouldn’t wake Sofia. The kid had just become more of a cockblocker as she got older, so I didn’t get as many chances as I wanted to make love to my wife.

Awwww! From beginnin’ to end, I found these fics immensely entertainin’ and highly recommendable…hey, a big word LOL! Oh, and did I mention they are both COMPLETE?

So, Daddyward has kept me busy this week! Who did you enjoy???

Happy Friday, y’all!

Good afternoon, ladies!

Takin’ y’all back to the 50’s today!

Not all the best stories are found on FanFictionNet, especially nowadays when so many authors have migrated elsewhere after the somanyeth purge!

Honeybee Meadows is just such an author and her fic, Don’t Look/No Promises, has its own special place on her blog!

Rob Attack


Rated: Fiction M – English – Angst/Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 15 – Updated: Jul 11, 2014 – Published: Jun 24, 2014 – Status: Complete

Each chapter gives the reader both POVs:


The girls stole the car at midnight.

It was always midnight. Always a different car. Always half a pint in. Always done with their teeth in their lips trying to muffle their drunken giggles and always for the thrill of it, nothing more than that.

This time it was a Thunderbird. A new one. Shiny baby blue paint and silver hubcaps. White leather seats. Sitting low and squat and perfect for picking.

Bella always drove.


– – – –


Edward watched them steal his car.

Sat in the dark on his porch with a fading cigarette between his lips and allowed them to pick the lock. Three girls in matching jackets, matching curled hair, matching skirts. Rolled up short and held down tight, eyes lined with wings and lips lined with blood. Hairdos and kitten heels and enough bared skin to make his mouth water.

Which was why he basically let them steal the Bird right out from underneath his nose.

He’d been looking at those girls for a while now.

The one he had his eye on, little-big-eyes, that long brown hair and those hips and the fuckme mouth painted pink instead of red, she was the one who got in behind the wheel.

He could have stopped them. But he didn’t.

Ha! I’ll tell you this right now, Edward should have stopped them because those girls totally trashed his beloved Bird and, oh, did he make Bella pay for that LMAO!

The twists and turns these two took before givin’ in to the inevitable was so much fun to read, I’m compelled to share it with you!

Eddie Masen had it all; power, intuition, and the hottest rock-n-roll band in the country. One night his car went off a dark Washington State bridge. His body never found and his dream never lost. Twelve years later the mystery of Eddie begins to unravel.

Rated: Fiction M – English – Mystery/Romance – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 13 – Words: 54,611 – Reviews: 516 – Favs: 295 – Follows: 223 – Updated: Aug 12, 2011 – Published: May 24, 2011 – Status: Complete – id: 7016988

Alice Brandon, TV reporter, is diggin’ up the past and will do anything to get at the truth about what happened to Eddie and the Cruisers…

“On August fifth, Eddie’s car drove off the Eighth Street Bridge in Port Angeles.Now, it’s believed that he committed suicide,” Alice started delivering her pitch, slowly, not wanting to divulge too much before they weren’t interested in hearing what else she had to say.

“Believed?” one of the men questioned.

Alice nodded. “Yes. See, Eddie’s car was found, but his body never was.”

“Fifteen years ago, Eddie and the Cruisers were the biggest no name group to come out of Washington since Nirvana.”

A TV played in the background showing the band from their earlier days while Alice Brandon filled in the people around her on what was to be her first primetime special. She had been gathering all the information, contacting the key players before she  divulged what would either make or break her career.

At the same time, Rosalie Hale is tryin’ to convince Bella Swan to write a book about her life with Edward and the band…

Convincing Bella that she should share with the world the other side of Eddie and the Cruisers proved to be a little harder than she expected. At first Bella was reluctant to the idea. She didn’t want to exploit Eddie or any of the other members of the band. Eventually, after some much needed convincing, Bella gave into Rosalie’s request. Rosalie was surprised, after all the pleading she had done, that Bella had already in fact begun to document their love affair. She had note books with words written in them that were poetic enough to write a chart topping song.

“I wasn’t the lyrical genius that Eddie or the Jazz Man were,” Bella had told her when she allowed Rosalie to see her notes.

Rosalie thought otherwise. From that moment on, the two women began crafting Bella’s first novel. The one, now after eight years, that would finally be hitting the shelves if only Bella could decide which ending to go with.

“Rosalie, stop,” Bella stated sternly. “I know what I have to do. I’m sorry I’m not making this easy for anyone. This was my life though. How can I put an ending on something I never wanted to end?”

I read this fic a long time ago and had another quick look through it last night to refresh my memory. Bella’s grief at havin’ to go on without Edward at her side is heartbreakin’, as is the impact his absence has had on the other band members.

There’s also the mystery of the stolen studio tapes from the night before Edward’s car went off the bridge that fateful night!

Who took them and why???

All in all, this is a great read not to be missed!

So, what are my lovelies readin’ this week?

Happy Friday, y’all!

I’m very late today…thank God it’s Friday somewhere in the world *facepalm!*

My only excuse for missin’ last week was the summer heat got into my bones and, at my age, it made me so lazy, I could hardly bring myself to move LOL!

I’m back now, though and, as promised, I’m bringin’ RomeWard with me!!!

Nancym5621 rec’d this first fic a couple weeks ago and got me all inspired for the idea of a RomeWard post…thank you, Nancy darlin’ MWAH!!!

Born as a Roman slave, Eduardus serves a depraved mistress and learns that he is nothing. Stolen into a world of violence, Eduardus slakes his thirst without remorse, and learns that he is a monster. Fleeing to a world of asceticism, Edward finds relief in oblivion and learns that life is pain. But in rescuing his Singer, Edward learns that he must live.

It’s a WIP and I’ve read all 19 chapters. Although his horrific time as a slave in Rome is only briefly touched on so far, I’m includin’ it because of the summary and Edward’s Romanized name…Eduardus!

One of the things I’m enjoyin’ about Angelus Ardens is the historical setting, mostly centering around Forks in the late 1800’s. There’s no mind readin’, no sparklin’, and Edward has a way with animals…well, the ones he doesn’t eat LOL! Like his horse(s) and Bella’s dog!

Needless to say, I’m enjoyin’ the hell out of it and can’t wait for the next update!

Isabella’s heart was stolen by an injured soldier when she was sixteen. Now, she is brought to the empire’s capitol for the marriage market to be sold to the highest bidder, but Isabella has other plans for fate. AU, AH. E/B. Loosely based on Ancient Rome, but mostly made-up fluff with citrus. Complete in 8 chaplets.

Complete at 10 chapters, Musegirl’s fic is packed with romance, angsty goodness, steamy sex and a great HEA that resolved all the angst to my satisfaction LOL!

Well worth a read!

Sheviking’s entry was one of the winners, as you can see above. As you can also see from the settin’ of Pompeii, it did NOT have the kind of HEA we love to see. Nevertheless, you really don’t want to let that put you off readin’ it!

Well, these are the ones I gleaned from my TBR! Let me know what you think and, if any of you have found other RomeWard fics, cough ’em up!

By the way, the lovely Jolori sent us a couple new RA banners, which RF has already added to the rotation! Thanks, Jolori, darlin’! {{HUGS!}}

Happy Friday, y’all!

Random Rita ~ Let’s Talk About Slash, Baby!

Wet Rob Avi

Evenin’, ladies!

I’ve actually been dyin’ for Friday to finally get here so I could tell you about the fic that’s had me rivited all freakin’ week!

Up to now, I haven’t tested your delicate sensibilities by introducin’ a slash story but it’s time to put on your big girl panties and dive into the…

Jasper Whitlock went to college. He took a job at the bookstore on campus as part of his work/study program. He didn’t expect to meet his old swim coach at that bookstore, and he had no idea how his college life would play out. Seeing Edward Cullen again sent him into a riptide he never expected. Swimming against it might take him down, but if he swam with it?

Let me repeat the warnin’ she posts at the very beginnin’!

Slash…this is a slash story with non-canon couples. Rated NC-17 for the reasons of language, adult situations, violence, rape, and heartbreak. You’ve been warned. Jasper/Edward. JPOV.

 Now, if you take all the warnin’s into consideration and still start readin’, you will be confronted with a harsh situation. However, it doesn’t drive the story…it merely brings all the protagonists together for an absolutely beautiful love story!!!

As Jasper has said in another of my favorite slash fics, “Love is love!” and our boys in Riptide will bring happy tears to your eyes!

Although it is presently a WIP, SK informs us the story is complete and she’s postin’ at least one chapter a day, if not more!

Brave enough to give it a try? Great! Let me know what you think and don’t forget to leave SK some well deserved love!

Anybody else a slash fan? What are your favorites?

Happy Friday, y’all!

Wet Rob Avi

Afternoon, ladies!

Everybody ready to OD on Cannes RobPorn? Stupid question, I know LMAO!

Well, we know for a fact, he’s on his way. Hell’n he’s probably landin’ as we speak!

Tweets from the source, Rachel Clarke: “He was super sweet. 🙂 Wished him luck at Cannes and got a big smile and a thank you. #Swoon it was amazing… not ONE pap!! I was so happy for him!” Thanks RClarke423!

In the meantime, I have one completed fic and one WIP for you!

He smelled nice, I noticed, not that I was blatantly breathing him in, even though I totally was – blatantly. All soap and sawdust from a slab of freshly cut lumber. All man. AH Complete

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Angst – Bella, Edward – Chapters: 22 – Words: 81,312 – Reviews: 2,559 – Favs: 1,526 – Follows: 2,261 – Updated: May 15 – Published: May 13, 2013 – Status: Complete – id: 9288819

In this fic, Edward and Bella are both war weary…she from a broken relationship and he from actual war. Each seeks peace, which is hard to come by. They might not have been lookin’ for love but it’s what they find when they meet and, ultimately, it’s what heals their poor, battered hearts!

The fact that Edward has a beard all through the story is a major turn on for me ’cause I loves me a thick, soft beard on a man! Rob’s mountain man beard? Puddle of goo, here! What I wouldn’t give to nuzzle and sniff my way around his neck and cheeks *sigh!*

ps: JonesN has pulled all her fics but this one (which I suspect won’t be up for long) with a view to publishin’! There’s a link on her profile if you’re lookin’ for pdf’s!

A tortured professor consumed by a secret. A quiet student who catches his eye. He’s barely existing. She’s young and innocent. When she enters his hellish world, it shifts…again. AH. Short drabblish chapters from WitFit prompts.

Chocaholic brings some angsty goodness to the table in Barely Breathing! It’s love/hate at first sight for Edward, whereas Bella isn’t so ambiguous…she’s hooked from the get go! This is one of those “drop everything and read” WIPs and, at this point,  I will only add that I’m not likin’ Alice in this fic…at all!

Let’s hear what fics are keepin’ you up all night!

Random Rita ~ When Edward Blows It Big Time!

Wet Rob Avi

Good afternoon, ladies!

And get your minds out of the gutter…we ain’t discussin’ slash! At least, not today LOL!

No, in the fic I’m gonna rec for you today, Edward has fucked up his relationship with Bella so badly, they might never recover!

Rob Attack


“It’s the first time I realize that for all of the significance boy-Edward holds in my past, man-Edward is a stranger to me. The thought is at once liberating and heartbreaking, and I don’t know what to do with it: how do you forgive someone who no longer exists? How do you hold a man accountable for a boy’s carelessness?”

As many of us experienced in our youth, boyfriends tended to be ready for sex before we were! And what happened when we didn’t put out?


One thing’s for sure…the debate ragin’ in the comments about whether or not Bella should forgive Edward for bein’ a hormone driven teenaged boy is damn near as entertainin’ as the story LMAO!

At this point, we don’t see how there could ever be an HEA for these two but, trustin’ in one of our favorite authors, we expect there will be…fingers crossed!

What fics have you droppin’ everything to read this week?

Happy Friday, y’all!

Random Rita ~ When Edward Finds Love on a Train!

Wet Rob Avi

Oh, my God!

Ladies, you are in for such a treat ’cause I have not one…not two, but THREE recs for you today!

Any of you ever catch the eye of a super hottie you’d give anything to get your hands on while travelin’ on public transportation? Maybe the attraction was the other way around and you had to decide whether to accept their ardent advances…or not!

Questions such as these are what we’ll be explorin’ with the following fics!

Rob Attack



Maps dictate where we go, but they don’t always take us home. City subway tunnels and dim street lights converge, bringing two people infinitely closer. Will a chance meeting lead them to forever? Maybe it was only a matter of time. Collaboration with Maplestyle. Romance; BxE; Rated M.

What happens when Bella turns in her seat to find her nose practically smashed into hot dude’s junk? Follow Seven Forty-Three by CullensTwiMistress and find out! Sparks fly but, despite all the eye fuckin’ goin’ on, it’s a lovely, slow burn and a joy to watch them dance around each other LOL!


Next up is a horse of a distinctly different color!

Edward wanted her from the moment he saw her. Bella doesn’t have time for a man. What happens when Edward takes a risk? The answer is he will possess her body, but she’ll possess his heart. Will Bella learn who Edward really is? Silence is not always Golden, but the Sex sure is Divine!

It’s not just eye-fuckin’ happenin’ on the train in Dishie’s deliciously decadent fic, Silence is Golden Sex is Divine! Not gonna say another word…you’ll just have to find out for yourself! Believe me when I tell you, I’ll drop EVERYTHING when this fic updates!


And, since the first two are WIP’s and I know how some of you are about your preference for complete fics, I give you the classic…

Bella wanted to fulfill a fantasy – to be groped inside a crowded train. She gets her wish and more, when a sex-starved ex-convict decides she’s fair game. ALLHUMAN. Mature but with plot.

Good afternoon, ladies!

For those of you who have not yet discovered Dinia Steel, you are in for such a treat!

Introduced to me by the fabulous Bornonhalloween last year on Facebook, this dear lady has quite a few fics listed on her profile. However, I’ve only recently joined the party with Edward Cullen FBI Special Agent and Psychic, now COMPLETE!

Rob Attack


Edward Cullen is the unacknowledged grandson of Harry Houdini from whom he’s inherited strong psychic abilities. Together with his closest friends: a Hoodoo man, two Witches from the Louisiana Swamps and an honest to God Guardian Angel, they work to solve crimes that ordinary law enforcement is unable to solve. A/H Edward, Bella, Sam, Angela, Lauren mostly. B E eventually

{BTW, I WANT that houseboat LMAO!}

A string of unsolved murders brings Edward, Sam, Angela and Lauren to LA where they will assist Detective Bella Swan who has been assigned to the case by a disgruntled superior who expects her to fail! Like Bella, you will need to suspend your beliefs and dive headlong into the occult world to find the culprit and bring him to justice!

Rob Attack

So, even though the good guys win in the end, the story isn’t over! After all, Edward and Bella still need to make that love connection we all look forward to with such antici…….pation LOL!

Therefore, I will be followin’ the sequel with bated breath!!!
