Bella? Marie? by Nyomi Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 1282]
Summary: Feature

ON HIATUS. [sorry guys :-(]

Bella (22) longs for love and acceptance, yet her fear of rejection keeps her guarded and single. Her craving to feel needed is fulfilled by working as a live-in nanny to Rosalie, who's a single mom to four-year old Henry.

For months, Bella has been secretly infatuated with Rosalie's ex-husband, Edward (29), but he barely acknowledges Bella during their brief encounters. That is, until one night when she bumps into him at a club.

However, he doesn't recognize her at all.

Afraid for her job, she tells him her name is Marie. He acceptes her pseudonym, and feeling safe with anonymity, Bella reveals her wild side. 

She makes the most of the night, but what happens when he tries to find the mysterous Marie?

When Mr. Cullen gets to know Bella, will he still want Marie?

How will that one incredible night shake their worlds?

The Transfer by bannerday Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 3914]
Summary:

 

Bella transfers to the University of Washington and lives in a dorm with the Twilight usuals. The incredibly beautiful guy with the coppery-bronze hair is such a jerk when their lives first collide, but they cannot ignore the fact that they are drawn to each other. However, Bella has a boyfriend back home and Edward doesn't plan to get involved. A terrible experience has made him reluctant to form any attachments. But sometimes you find what you didn't even know you were looking for.

A little angst and lots of romance. Humor with a nosy Emmett, Rose, Jasper and Alice. Add a potential stalker. Top it all off with undeniable sexual tension and eventually some very hot sexy-times. BPOV and EPOV

Summary:

Edward Cullen was a loner, an outcast. He clearly hated everybody, including himself. He was not a nice person. So, why was I so drawn to him? And why did I get the crazy feeling he felt the same way?

WARNING: This story will deal with the aftermath of child abuse and rape. If that bothers you too much, I strongly recommend that you don’t read.

"Well, no." I clarify. "We are only biology partners."

"OH! I get," he nearly shouts. "Like benefriends."

"WHAT?!" I yell, "NO!" I pull the phone away from my ear and press the TALK button to end the call.

The phone rings again.

"No Jacob! That is NOT what is going on between Edward and I, AT ALL, you perv!"

"Bella?" Edward's voice asks.

Ethics Be Damned by krazyk85 Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 914]
Summary:

 

Awesome banner made by my Beta xrxdanixrx...she is a genius and I can't stop staring at it...

 

“What are you thinking?” Edward asked me.

“I’m thinking about how big of a failure I am,” I answered truthfully.

We were still holding each other in his classroom and I realized quickly how dangerous that was...that was where Edward and I went wrong. The need we both felt to touch each other was costing us, and if I didn’t put a stop to it, well, I knew things were going to get worse way before they got better.

Edward narrowed his eyes at me disapprovingly. “You're not a failure, Bella.”

The furrow in his brow only increased as I put some distance between us. He reached out to bring me back in, but I shook my head stubbornly.

“I’m not running,” I assured him, “but we need to stop being so open. While I’m here, we need to at least pretend I’m your student.”

Edward ran his hands through his hair roughly and I envied him at that moment.  Only a minute had passed and I was already losing my resolve.

“She’s right, you know.”  

My body tensed to the voice that suddenly was in the room with us. It was unfamiliar and I couldn’t place it for the life of me, but this unknown voice was agreeing with me--which meant, this unknown person heard everything I said…

Oh shit, oh shit…

Bella Swan is a 28 year old woman who is a narcotics detective for the Seattle Police Department. Bella is assigned to go undercover as a high school student to bring down a massive drug ring fronted by the elusive Drug Lord Aro Volturi. Bella soon finds herself falling for her English teacher Edward Masen...

 

 

Edward Masen is instantly attracted to this new student, but can't pursue a relationship with a young girl.

 Will these two keep things in perspective or will their ethics be damned?
