The Best Man by Whitney Love Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 392]

Womanizer Edward meets Maneater Bella let the sheets fall where they may. It's not the average every day lover story between Edward and Bella. He's not into the one woman kind of deal and she's not into the one man kind of deal. The meet at a wedding, Edward is the Best Man and Bella is the Maid of Honor. Anything goes with these two so hold on tight and enjoy the ride.

Out of Character, All Human, Cannon Pairings.

Potty mouth and lots of lemony goodness included.

First chapter is kind of risky but I gotta show you just how naughty my Edward is. Give it a chance you won't regret it!

SO SHORT! But oh soooo sexy! I am just loving where this is going. Can't wait for more! WOO-HOO!

Author's Response:

Sorry so short. Just wanted to get you guys something before the next one. I've been wanting to get this chapter out too. I couldn't resist the flirting and angst in this little gem. I love them being sweet to one another, but it won't last with these two.



Thanks to TellyTubby101 for the fantastic banner!

What if Bella realized Edward was planning to leave her after the incident at her 18th Birthday party? Could she let his family give up the one place where they could be truly comfortable? Would she be able to disappear to give the Cullens a chance to live normal lives? She has to find the strength to walk away before Edward has a chance to break her heart – something she is certain she would not be able to survive.

This is really really good. But it's SCREAMING for an EPOV chapter! Please?

Author's Response:

His POV is next, I promise :-)




Banner by: HologramGirl

In an alternate all human universe, where society reached modern times with the equivalent to an Ancient Roman appearance and level of technology, sexual pleasure is paramount; the Cullens are a breed apart: sexual vegetarians, if you will. 

Bella is an "Innocent" and so off limits for deeper sexual grat

ification, a role she gladly embraces, taking pleasure only in giving to those around her. 

That is until she meets Edward.  Suddenly her Father's insistence

on her remaining an Innocent and Aro's desires to keep her for himself have become an unwelcome burden to her life.  How will Bella and Edward su

rvive their desire to be together when it is forbidden?

This story is a thinly disguised excuse for steamy lemons in the vein of a Roman orgy, yet there is also a deeper story about selfless giving and how love might just be worth waiting for...and fighting for.

*WARNING*  This story starts out with intense woman/woman imagery, and will depict graphic multi-partner pairings in future chapters.  DO NOT READ IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY GRAPHIC SEXUAL CONTENT OR IF YOU ARE NOT OF LEGAL AGE TO DO SO!!!

Now that I have a second to write you, I HAVE TO THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the amazing number of updates this had in like a day! It took me quite a while to catch up, and I'm so sorry I didn't review each and every chapter. I just kept on reading and reading like one long enormous post. So please accept my apology and allow me the honor of reviewing:

I absolutely love this story. B&E's relationship is so realistic that it's a refreshing change from some out there that just scream disbelief. I love how Edward is so desperate for Bella, as she is for him. 

And now I am completely horrified for our poor Bella, being forced to endure the unbearable scrutiny of Edward's world. 

I hope you update soon as after so many chapter reads I'm going through a bad case of withdrawal! LOL! 

Hope you had a Merry Christmas and now pray you have a Happy New Year!

Date: December 23, 2009 Title: Chapter 13: Chapter 13

This was a wonderfully emotional and powerful chapter. You make it incredibly easy to imagine and understand what the life of a young wife was like with a husband in the military, particularly back in the 1940s when options for women were much more limited.

Edward's harsh outburst towards Bella was truly heart breaking and jarring. I physically felt it and instantly fell more in love with this story. That one scene brought forth a supplication from Edward that was honest, sincere, and disarming. His desperation for Bella is at odds with his sense of duty, and I for one am begging you for the EPOV of that final scene. 

I can't wait to read more. 

Author's Response:

Edward is truly having a difficult time balancing his life with Bella with his military responsibilities. That he is forbidden from talking to her about it is tearing him apart. She's his best friend and the person he's closest to in the world and he wants nothing more than to unburden himself to her.

These kids are so young and so much in love and it breaks my heart that they're having such a difficult time with their marriage, especially knowing that had there been no war, they would be blissful with each other.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the EPOV. Oddly enough, I think I'm more comfortable writing Edward in general. Go figure. Unplanned, The onshot I wrote from EPOV, came much easier to me than any chapter of FH.

Thank you for reading and for taking the time to review.

I only just discovered this story and am so grateful that I did. I went back and read your INFAMY, and in doing so coming to appreciate FINDING HOME all the more.

This chapter was positively heart breaking. I cried with Bella, and I loved every minute of it. 

Will you consider doing an EPOV chapter? Perhaps an EPOV story to accompany this one? Your writing is so beautiful that I am certain the Edward's pov would be devastingly wonderful. Please consider it. 


Author's Response:

I'm so glad you like my story so far. Nice reviews like this make the time I spend writing more than worth it.

The EPOV question is a tough one for me to answer, but I will say this. This is Bella's story. If an EPOV fits in with how I need to tell her story, then I'll do it. Otherwise, the story will be from her perspective.

Thanks for takin gthe time to read and review.

I am so incredibly grateful for this chapter. It's made me feel so much better about this story. It's just so nice to finally enjoy the 'hope' in it. 

Thank you.

Author's Response:

Sorry my reply is so late in coming.


I'm so glad you found this outtake a satisfying end to the story. There is hope, and something beautiful, I think, in the imperfection of their lives. They love each other and despite what they've been through, that's what will get them through anything life hands them in the future.


Thank you for reading and for taking the time to review. One more outtake to come that will post under Finding Liberty.

This has got to be the cutest thing I've ever read: "It's okay. I'll be your friend, Bella." He smiled and that's when I realized I needed to make him my husband. I had seen on the Disney channel that two people fall in love instantly once the lady meets her Prince Charming. At that moment, I was sure that Edward was my prince and he would save me from harm.”

Please post more asap. I can't wait to read what happens with these two.

But oh soooo deliciious!




When Bella and Edward meet the first day of High School, he is a chubby misfit with no friends in a new town, aside from his popular cousins.  He meets Bella Swan, a well-liked, if uncoordinated, local with problems of her own.  This is the story of their friendship, their loss, their love and destruction.  Can they find their way back to each other?  And can they survive the changes they have both gone through since the fateful day they met?

Reviewer: icrodriguez Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: May 01, 2010 Title: Chapter 32: Far Away


Now on a more practical note, I am of the camp that understands Edward's need to unload his guilt via email. What other choice does he have? She won't talk to him. I support him in his confession, although I am certain it will devastate Bella all the same. I pray a phone conversation arises from this exchange. Something, please. 

But I must say that I really hope it doesn't take months or, God forbid, years, as one reviewer put it, for E&B to get better and reunite. That would be just pure torture for all parties involved, ourselves included. 

Btw, thank you for making my heart stop with the opening scene of Edward naked in bed while someone not-Bella was brewing coffee in the heart broke, but then went wild with joy when Alice came through the door. SWEET RELIEF!

Godspeed, Darlin'.

I can't say much, Edward. My senses are muddled along with yours, my heart up in arms at the reality of desolation and devastation.

There isn't much to say, only this: to hold her, you have to let her go. Such is the way of things. 

And all you can do now is weather the storm, ride out it's turbulent and pounding waves, and pray for it's mercy.

Close your eyes and pray.

The doubt was enough.

It was enough, Edward. Enough to threaten your sanity, enough to risk your happiness, enough to jeopardize her heart. But you rebelled against it, and in doing so, you have achieved salvation.

Yes, you should've first worried about her. No, you should not have doubted her love and devotion...ONCE AGAIN. But you did. And while that will and should make you feel guilty and ashamed, you should instead revel in the fact that you fought temptation...and WON. 

Your instincts no longer pushed you to weakness and abandonment, but rather guided you to redemption and introspection.

You won, Edward. Your soul won. 

She is not lost. 

She is still yours, as you are hers.
