Alice's planning and ideas were brilliant.  I enjoyed their trip was interesting and entertaining.

I loved their coffee date.  I can't get enough of E/B together.  They have an incredible connection and I just love it!



Author's Response:

Awww, thanks so much for continuing to read & comment.  I've told you before, but it really does mean a lot to me when I hear from you :)

I had a lot of fun writing Chapter 9 - lots of fluff, some info on other characters (Alice is of course one of my favorites!) and a fun, relaxed coffee date.  I'm glad to hear you are enjoying E/B's developing relationship, because I absolutely love writing it!

Thanks again for the feedback!

Well, since you asked I'll tell ya ....the most moving moment - for me - was when Bella saw Edward working in the store and her inner voice said 'Touch him'.  The night I met my hubs - my inner voice said the same thing to me and I did - and 15 years later we are still together. 

Oh how I hate to admit this but I was alot like Sarah at 15 - snarky and well, bitchy.  I said things to hurt others and just be a pain in the ass.  I thought that Bella handled her brilliantly.  She was perfect.  Will is great - I just adore him.

And Edward is just beyond swoonable.  I love how thoughtful and caring he is.  Very convenient that he was driving by at that time ...hmmm?  So sweet that he took care of Bella and comforted her.  I can't wait to find out more about his past.  And, oh what I would give for his POV. *sigh*

As usually, I am looking forward to more!!



Author's Response:

I've said it before, but it bears repeating - thank you so, so much for your continued support of this story and for sending me your comments.  I truly appreciate your feedback!

And thanks so much for sharing the story about you & your hubs!  Congrats on 15 years - that's a record any more :)

Edward may or may not have been driving by the store hoping to see the lights on so he could go visit with a pretty brunette... guess he got more than he bargained for, but lucky Bella!  There will be EPOVs as outtakes at later dates, but too much of what goes on in his head is spoiler material right now :)

Glad to know that you don't completely hate Sarah - it actually hurts to write her like that because, in my head, I know she was just as sweet as Will before Bella & Jacob separated.  Also good to know that she reads like a "real" teenager - mouthy, bratty and all!

As promised, a little teaser for Ch. 11, which should hopefully post this weekend...

“Bella, you’ve got some paint right…here,” Edward said, reaching out with his forefinger and brushing my cheekbone. I felt my pulse race as the blood rushed to the spot he touched, my skin tingling with awareness. He lifted his finger, showing me the dot of bright pink paint that now colored his fingertip. “Oops, didn’t get it all,” he said huskily, reaching out to cup my cheek, using his thumb to rub gently at the spot between my cheekbone and nose...

I am thrilled that Edward and Bella cleared the air in regards to the kiss.  I was releaved that it was just a misunderstanding/a miscommunication and not something more.

Although, they do need to talk.  Edward needs to explain what has happened in his past and with his marriage.  It seems to still be affecting him and if he plans on having any kind of relationship with Bella he should talk to her.  However, if he is just looking for a 'hook-up' well then, no need to explain!  ;);)

I am so excited for them to see each other again!



Author's Response:

Thanks once again for taking the time to read and comment - I really appreciate your feedback, and I always look forward to reading what you think of the updates!

As far as what's happening with Edward... well, he's got his own timeline (trust me, I've been trying to get him to follow mine, but he just crosses his arms and shakes his head... with that sexy crooked grin, of course!)  But the next couple of chapters should answer a few questions. I hope you'll continue to let me know what you think as things progress, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on New Year's Eve!!

Thanks again, so much, for reading :)>

Such an amazing and lovely evening.  I just adored how attentive Edward was to Bella.  He was clearly watching her to know when she needed more food/drink.  Very, very swoonable!!

And what an incredibly hot kiss!  Hell it had me panting too!!



Author's Response:

Thanks for your continued support - I love to hear what you think when the chapters go up!

New Year's Eve was so much fun to write.  I think we all need a swoonable Edward, don't we?  :)

Thanks again for your feedback!

I have to confess that I read each chapter more than one time.  Actually, it is embarrassing how many times I read the chapters. 

I am so loving this story.  I love that they are grown ups with grown up lives and problems.  I love that Bella isn't perfect with the perfect body.  And that they both have baggage that they are bringing into this relationship.

So relieved that Bella found out more about Edward's past with Heidi.  I am still wondering what they could possibly have to discuss.

Great job --- I can't wait for more!!



Author's Response:

Best compliment EVER, hearing that you reread the chapters :)  Seriously, because I do that to my favorite stories, and it makes me absolutely giddy to think that you are doing that with my story.  Thank you so, so much!!

And of course I'm thrilled that you're liking the story progression.  It's been a challenge to keep it real when all I've wanted is to throw these kids together, but knowing that it's the "realness" of the characters that keeps you reading helps keep me in focus.

Thank you again sooo much for your continued support.  I always look forward to your comments!!

I just love how their relationship is growing.  I really like that they truly care about each other and their attraction is evident!

I am just so addicted to their moments together.  Whether it is them talking on the phone or being red-hot intimate -- I can't get enough.

I was surprised and proud of Sarah's reaction to the news about Bella and Edward dating.  I thought that Will's reaction was reasonable - for him.   Bella handled him and his concerns well.

Again -- I loved it and can't wait for more!!



Author's Response:

I appreciate you continuing to take the time to read and comment on my story – your feedback means more to me than you could ever know! 

Glad I could surprise you with the kids' reactions - and Bella's reaction to the kids' reactions.  I think Sarah and Bella both have grown quite a bit.  Will's feeling a little insecure, but what 13-year old boy isn't that way where his mom is concerned?

Glad you are enjoying the B/E interaction.  That little bit of lemon zest was fun to write!

 

As promised, here’s your teaser for Chapter 16, which should post this weekend:

 

His voice quieted as he sang the chorus one last time, his eyes only on me.  The applause startled both of us, and he mumbled a quick “thank you” into the microphone.  Edward waved to the crowd and stepped down from the stage even as the applause picked up for his performance.  He waved off the waitress who approached him with his usual post-performance drink, and ignored the calls of people wanting to speak with him.  My breathing was rough and excited as he stalked across the bar toward me, a predatory gleam in his eye.  Ignoring his brother and our friends, he reached down, grasping my hands and pulling me from my seat into his arms in one fluid movement as he crushed his lips to mine.

 

Hope you’ll let me know what you think of the update when it posts.  Thanks for reading!

Oh how I love this story.  I love that they are adults with adults lives, with adult issues and problems.

Thank you for making Bella more 'real'  For not making her perfect with a perfect body.  I love that she has flaws and is concerned about how she looks.

And if it even possible, I fell more in love with Edward when he was describing how and why he finds Bella attactive.  Real men like curves!! ;)

(I'm not even going to tell you how many times I read this.  Too many to count.)



Author's Response:

Thanks so much for reading & commenting - I always love getting your feedback!  I'm glad you enjoyed the update.  It makes me so happy when I hear that you find Bella real - that's exactly what I'm working so hard at, and it means so much to me to know that she comes across that way.  And Edward... yeah, I think we all need one of those at home!

 

Rereading?  Best compliment I can get!!!

 

Next chapter should hopefully post this weekend - I hope you'll let me know what you think of it when it does.  Thanks so much for your continued support!>

I think I say the same thing in every review.  I loved it.  I reread this chapter an insane amount of times.  I love her.  I really love him.  SEE - the same thing!  ;)

I must admit -- I do love smut!  This was an incredible lemon.  One of the things that I loved most was that this stayed true to these characters.  These are two adults who care for and desire each other and this lemon reflected that perfectly.  I loved it!

Great job and as always, I can't wait for more!!

 



Author's Response:

*whispers*  I love smut, too :)  A lot.  But writing it terrifies me, so I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the lemon in this chapter.  I tried very, very hard *snicker* to keep these two in character.  Even when Bella's thinking dirty thoughts, they are the kind of thoughts she would think, not like some 21 year old porn star. 

Yeah, I'm like seriously in love with this Edward, so I know what you mean.  And if I ever find him in the real world, I'm probably going to chain him up and do.... how does Bella phrase it?...unspeakably dirty things to him.

Thank you so much for your unfailing support week after week.  I truly look forward to hearing from you every time I post :)

Oh how I loved this.  What a great morning after!  I really love that they communicate with each other and that Edward is so patient with her.  They truly have a great connection.

Is it wrong that I was sad that their weekend was over too?  I really didn't want Bella to go home.

Again, Bella did a great job with Sarah.  She handled her perfectly.  She is such an amazing mom.

As always, I loved it and can't wait for more!!



Author's Response:

It's not wrong to be sad the weekend was over.... I was actually very sad to write it!!  But real life does go on, despite magical weekend interludes.

I hope I'll be as calm as Bella when my now 13-year old daughter comes home and askes about a date with a boy, but probably NOT!!!

Thank you so, so much for your continued support.  I truly look forward to your comments every time I post!!

I know I may have mentioned it before - I really like the E/B interactions.  Now I have to admit, I completely enjoyed the beginning of this chapter.  I was cracking up when Bella was telling Jacob about Sarah's date offering references.  I am really liking this kid!!!  (That would be an hysterical outtake -- from his terrified POV.)

The shopping was great too.  It is wonderful to see Bella and Sarah getting along so well.  I do miss Will though.  Do the kids know that Bella and Edward are dating?  (I can't remember) 

Also, I do hope that Edward meets the kids soon.  Maybe he can come over one night for dinner.  I think it would be good for the kids and for Edward and Bella's relationship too. 

And that might be the best breakfast ever!  Bella is one lucky lady!!



Author's Response:

Thanks for always taking the time to read and comment - I so look forward to hearing from you.  I'm glad you enjoyed the update.  Personally, breakfast with Edward is my new favorite meal :)

The reference kid?  My high school boyfriend offered references to my parents when he asked me to prom.  Truth is stranger than fiction, I guess.

Some of what you're looking for just may be coming up in Chapter 20..... you'll have to let me know what you think when it posts :)

Thanks again for reading!

I am so happy and relieved that Bella decided to not hide her relationship with Edward from her kids anymore.  I swear it was is you peeked inside my head and saw what I wanted --- scary. ;)

I was confused and upset that Edward didn't tell Bella about his step-daughter.  Why hide that information?  It just makes it look so much worse.  I could somewhat understand his nervousness but he should have been upfront and honest with her. 

Was he even going to tell her where he was going if she hadn't asked?  Would he have told her about the part or just going to Portland?  It makes me wonder .....

I loved Bella day with Will.  He is such a great kid.  He was so adorable when he thought their current arrangement with Edward was best.  Typical!

I was just as nervous and anxious as Bella with Edward at the party.  I felt so bad for her.  I'm glad that he is there but what the hell happened.  I have a very funny feeling about this.  I am eager to find out.

(Dear gray:  I need you to pass a message to Edward for me.  As a step-parent - I have some suggestions/advice for Edward.  I think he and I need to talk because he it seems that he is confused in his role.  Maybe ...we could meet for breakfast?  I could meet him in his office first. Just let him/me know - okay?!?)   ;);)



Author's Response:

Your reviews always make me smile & lol.  I tried to pass your message along to Edward as requested, but was met by Bella, arms crossed over her chest and her eyebrow raised.  It appears that she's questioning your true motives in wanting a breakfast "meeting" with Edward.  Well, she is a smart girl......

I think you'll find some answers to your questions in 21.  And to answer one specifically, he was going to tell her where he was going and why - that's part of the reason he contacted her and they ended up having "breakfast"

I'm glad you enjoyed the time with Will.  He's sooo much fun to write!

Thanks again for always taking the time to read and comment - I so love hearing from you!!

I'm glad that they talked and Bella got more to Edward's past with Heidi and his step-daughter. 

I agree with Bella there is more to his history with Heidi and Felix.  I truly hope that she doesn't allow it to slide and finds out more.  She needs to trust her instincts and get to the truth.  I don't know or understand why he didn't tell her what Felix said.  It makes me wonder ...and worry.

Edward and Bella are so wonderful together.  She was so patient while he was explaining.  And he was adorable when teasing her about Valentine's day.

Also, I am SO excited to read Edward POV.  I can't wait!!!!! 



Author's Response:

Bella's not forgetting that Edward promised her some more information - she has every intention of figuring out what he's not telling her.  First we gotta get him feeling better though.

In lieu of my regular weekly posting I'll be posting the first EPOV on FFN by the end of the week.  I hope you'll wander over there and let me know what you think :)  After that, I'll be back to the regular posting schedule.

Thanks for always taking the time to read and comment - I always love hearing from you!

Their dinner was great.  I thought it was brilliant of Edward to bring gifts to the kids.  It was a wonderful icebreaker with them.

I loved that Bella realized the importance of needing to know more about Edward and his past - especially because of her kids.  I do hope she is able to get more answers soon.

Still, I love them and all their moments together - even their stolen moments.  It is so wonderful seeing them continuing to grow closer and now involving her kids is a huge step in their relationship.

(PS- loved Edward's POV and I don't know if I could really pick specific chapters -- I want it all!)

As always, can't wait for more!!



Author's Response:

I'm so glad that you enjoyed the update, and I appreciate you always taking the time to review and let me know :) 

And I'm just thrilled you like the EPOV.  There are definintely more outtakes planned, so make sure you've got Enough to Hope on alert over at FFN.

And now a little sneak peek into Chapter 23...

I slid my arms around his waist and my hands into the back pockets of his jeans, cupping and squeezing his ass the way he did mine.  His responding groan sent a shiver down my spine.

Edward pulled back, his eyes dark, his breathing rapid.  “Go.  Do your paperwork,” he commanded in a low voice that made my stomach flutter.  “The sooner the work is done, the sooner the play can start.”

Well, there may have been growling but it definitely wasn't from frustration.  ;)

This was incredibly hot.  I loved that he wanted a 'do over' of the ending of their first kiss.  It is incredible to see how intense their passion and desire is for each other. 

I really, really, really enjoyed that Bella got to live out her fantasy with Edward.  I think Edward needs to share some of his fantasies and share those too. ;)

Oh, and I do hope that they talk soon.  She still needs answers.



Author's Response:

Awww, I'm so glad you liked it.  The do-over kiss wasn't planned, but Edward was whispering in my ear about that.... and you know I can't resist Edward when he whispers in my ear.  Or at any other time, really :)

Hmmm, Edward fantasies..... oh Edward!  We need to talk, baby!

Thanks so much for reading & taking the time to let me know :)

Well, that was an interesting moment with Jake and Renesmee.  Actually, I thought it was good that Bella admitted how difficult it was for her in the beginning of their relationship. 

Also, I do like that Bella and Edward are having the tough talks.  Neither had discussed children and what they wanted.  I agree with Bella - I hope her love is enough.  It will be interesting to see if they talk about this again and if so, what will be said.

Another amazing chapter.  As usual, I am looking forward to more!



Author's Response:

Bella had a hard time admitting to herself that seeing Jake fall in love was hard.  Yet another blow to her fragile ego.  Thank goodness that she's got Edward to help with those issues :)

Bella's got a lot of thinking to do, and so does Edward.  He needs to be sure that he means it when he tells her that she's enough, because it would break her heart otherwies.  They will be talking, count on it!

Thanks so much for the feedback :)

So, I just left an awesome review (if I say so myself) and the damn review was lost!  I will try to remember my review.  It is difficult to recreate that kind of brilliance but for you - I will try.  ;)

I was surprised by Edward's testimony and what he revealed about his fight with Felix.  I never would have suspected any of that.  I couldn't believe he said such disgusting things about a child.  Also, I was shocked by Heidi's conversation with Bella. 

As usual, Bella handled everything so well.  I didn't blame her for wanting to hurt Felix.  As a mom, it is instinctual.  (Although, I think Bella should mention this to Charlie ....maybe he could have a 'chat' with Felix.)

I love that Edward wanted to do something with Bella and the kids.  I'm even more excited that it will just be Bella and Edward. 

As always, excellent chapter --- I can't wait for more!

 



Author's Response:

Man, I hate it when Twilighted eats my stuff - that's happened to me before too!  I'm so glad you were able to recreate your brilliance for me :)

Felix is a sicko.  Opinion has been very divided - some people understand his protective nature, while others support Bella's rights as a mom to be angry with him. Hmmmm, I never thought about involving Charlie :)

Their trip starts next chapter, which should be up soon!  Thanks so much for always taking the time to read and comment - it makes my day!

Edward Cullen is an anomaly as far as Bella Swan is concerned, defying all her preconceived notions about the whorishness of hockey players. Through incessant stalking and persistence, can Edward wears down Bella's resistence and teaches her to embrace her inner hockey hooker? A ridiculous love story.

I truly adore this perverted, stalker Hockeyward.  It is hysterical that he broke into Emmett's e-mail account.  I love that on some level he knows it is wrong but doesn't stop!

And then - he steals the pics of Bella from Emmett's e-mail and puts the pics into his 'beaver' folder.  There are no words!

The texts, voicemails, e-mails and gifts were inspiring and very entertaining!  I enjoyed that Bella is liking his attention so much.
