Hello, I'm a 34 English Teacher / Psychologist. Married, no children however two extreamly spoiled and adored goldenretrievers. Moka and Maya are my babies, both girls around 8 human years both of them.


I live in the city of Puebla in Mexico. It is a colonial city near the volcanoes. I give English lessons to children and adults.


I love reading since I was a little girl I read almost anything within my reach. I enjoy reading historic novels and biographies but adore a good novel and mystery. I would love to write, but I'm not good yet. I begin something and then have no idea how to finish it. So I have tons of little stories and things that go through my head in the computer and notebooks. I hope to one day make something out of all of it.


I got hooked in Fan Fiction thanks to the Twilight series which I loved. I enjoy reviewing stories and try to think my reviews and make them nice.


About my Favorite things.- Reading of course, both in English and Spanish. Favorite Authors, in Spanish, Gabriel García Marquez, Angeles Mastretta, Paulo Cohelo. In English, in no particular order Stephenie Meyer, J.K. Rowling, Michel Crichton, Agatha Christie. These are the ones I can think of now.


I also love cooking and I'm good at it, at least that's what family and friends tell me.


I also enjoy sewing, needle point, cross stich and such.


That's it for now I think. I hope that the authors whose stories I review enjoy them I try to make them good. Since I don't feel I can write a story yet at least I can try and write good reviews.

Summary: Edward was my son, and I had a fatherly duty to him to teach him about these things. I was going to give my hundred and seven year old, virgin son a sex talk. God help me, this was going to be awkward.

Poor Emmett he is in a difficult position. His place, of course is next to Rosalie, and he will be by her side. But at the same time he is dieing with curiosity to meet Bella and see all that the family is telling him about her and Edward.

His mind hasn't been able to really accept that this is real.

I enjoyed the chapter, Emmett and Jasper's wishes for some "action" were fun in their own way. Also Esme getting all "mom" with them too.

About whether Alice can or can't see the Quileutes... as you say it's a tough call. that I'm leaving to you.

Sorry :)

Date: December 27, 2008 Title: Chapter 2: Edward's Defeat

Really good. I liked to read what Edward was thinking, both his guilt and desire. I hope there is more coming

 
Summary:

Bella Swan meets a beautiful stranger, lawyer Edward Masen on a holiday in Rome. The chemistry is palpable, the sex passionate - and a physical relationship grows into something more. The days fly in a whirlwind of clothes, sand, sex and wine. After a painful realisation that the fantasy has come to an end, Bella returns apprehensively to Seattle, heartbroken at the loss of her love. 


But, little does she know that the 'beautiful stranger' isn't such a stranger, after all.

 

A surprise awaits Bella Swan in Seattle.

 

 

Rated for explicitly detailed sex scenes and language.

What was making the noise that woke him up? Not that he was so angry afterwards, but I was just thinking.

So a game of lights and shadows didn't allow him to really see the girl in the swimming pool, but he got a new chance and just around the corner. How will this girl take the intrusion?

That's what you can call a vacation. Wow, it seems amazing. Bella is having a really good time, she is thinking about her friends but isn't exactly home-sick. Why did she take such a vacation? That we don't know, but as wonderful as it looks, it isn't the most usual thing to do.

 
Summary:

Bella is a witness in peril. Emmett Cullen is the deputy assigned to protect her. When the witness protection program proves unsafe, Emmett has Bella pose as his brother Edward's fiancée. ExB. AU/AH.

I had never considered what Emmett was thinking, it is a big risk for everyone. That is scarry, and honestly makes the story even better, unfortunatelly it also shows the option of a not so happy ending, but makes the story better and picks at my curiosity, what is going to happen? with the deposition, the party, the trial, Edward's and Bella's relationship, how everyone in the familiy is falling for her. Wow so many questions. Please update soon!!!! can't wait for whatever is coming next.

Poor Bella, she is going to go crazy with frustration if things keep like this, and unfortunatelly it seems that they will be the same at least until the deposition.

Does Edward care for her? at times it seems he does and acts like that because he is afraid of loosing her, someothers it seems he wants to try and keep his distance and others like this chapter it's just plain confussing.

Too bad it will take you longer to post the next chapters, this story is really great and I'm completely hooked on it. But there is life and work. :)

Date: June 08, 2009 Title: Chapter 17: June 7 - June 13, 2008

Yes, it has been a while, it is good to have you and the story back.

Thoughts on it? Edward has fallen deep, really, really deep in love with Bella. Has anyone noticed? Can't anyone realize what is going on? A part says they should another is glad they haven't. The risks of it are really high, higher now that the Volturi know "Marie/Bella" is alive. How long will it take them to start looking in the right places? It is getting scary in that way. The dead-end we had waiting for has come and the what nows are big.

What are Bella's feelings? What does she really feel now for Edward? Does he just Make her happy? Or are there other things? It was interesting that she dared jump the day before they left for the deposition, it meant more than the deposition but her desision to testify. There is so much at risk now.

Alice is there, that should help reduce the tension but will also give them opportunities like where the chapter ended to be closer to each other.

Please, don't forget about us, you thought we might have, but we didn't. So update please :)



Author's Response:

It's good to be back :)

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I enjoyed reading what you got from this chapter and the story. And really, I couldn't forget about you, the readers.

Best,

Yes, it was a long wait, but this chapter was worth it.

All of it, Alice interrupting them. The tension both of them are slowly building in one another. The pace they are taking all the games and silent suggestions. It all made things add up to the end and they even if a litltle unconsciously saying what they both feel, finally.

But as great as them saying may be there is still that "engagement" that has a date and what it means and may bring with it, all the way to it and then after it too.

And also Bella might have forgotten momentarily but she has to remember Jason Jenks and ask both Emmett and Edward about it.

What is Edward's secret? Has he shared part of it with anyone? Lets just hope it isn't dangerous.



Author's Response:

I'm glad you think it was worth the wait. It was a tough chapter to write, believe it or not.

I very much enjoyed reading your thoughts on the chapter.

Thanks for reading!

It's great to have you back!!! Happy New Year and the best of luck, with finishing the story :( and what ever you will do next. We have missed you, but you're back :)

Things have developed in ways none of them ever imagined or considered. It has been quite different from the plans made. None has gone accordingly, and in a way it's worse but also better. 

Bella and Edward are happy, for the first time in their lives they feel good, but it's all hanging on delicate threads. 

Edward has been busy trying to snake his way close to the enemy as he said, it's a dangerous thing, does he realize how dangerous? Emmett surely trusts his brother, he is going to go along with him in this witchhunt. I do hope they are safe and keep their family safe. 

Where are we going from here? And of course, who is Jenks?

 
Reviewer: mayams Signed
Date: January 18, 2010 Title: Chapter 20: August 1 - September 4, 2008

Wondering why Jenks took the painting personally to the house wouldn't make a difference I think. It did make Bella's mind jump into a very dangerous path, and a really sad one too. She is doing what she thinks is right, keeping the people she cares for safe. That's what both Emmett and Rosalie would do. Emmett will probably understand her better than anyone else in the family will. After all, he has the same concerns as she does and with bigger proof. But he and Edward had begun to work together trying to keep everyone safe, they never considered telling Bella about it. Would it have helped? It's hard to tell, maybe she would have sped things up, or feel even more of the love they all have for her. 

She isn't in an easy situation, imagine having to pretend all your dreams are about to come true, and knowing it will most probably end up badly. 

She acted with haste and not too much thinking, but not without love. I hope all of them see that. 

What will happen now? I don't see Edward just staying still and doing nothing.

 
Reviewer: mayams Signed starstarstarstarhalf-star

She left no trail to follow. She is clever and knows her game. Where she might be is not as important as hoping she is safe. And a part of me hopes she is really sad too. Is it being worth? Lets hope so.

But now part of the cover is blown and Edward will have to figure what to tell Alice. Emmett won't be happy. I am almost sure Alice has never truly believed that Bella went back to her ex; but she has no idea what the truth might be.

Has she been keeping taps on them? In touch with Jacob? 

Will Edward forgive her?

So many questions.....

I was wondering if you were abandoning us again!!!! It was just a longer wait, and worth it. Poor Bella, she found herself in the middle of something she never imagined or wished for, she had to run, hide, pretend to be someone she fell in love with and fell in love with a perfect guy just to have to run away again. Run away, break her heart and all ties to people who have cared for her in the process. She is doing what she thinks is best for everyone but her. There's no doubt she has acted out of love, she just never thought others would do the same. 

I'm glad Edward found her, even if he is putting them both at danger, she would have lost her mind if he hadn't, she wasn't living, barely surviving and she wouldn't be able to do that for much longer.

Jenks was a good surprise too. And Edward had to finally find the message and start acting from it. Is Jenks a good guy? Perhaps there's some good left in him still. That little piece did it's part to calm his conscience. 

Three more chapters... this is really coming to it's end.

Are Bella's conclusions the truth? Can't wait to find out.

Summary:

It's rare to see any other POV of Twilight than the hackneyed versions of Midnight Sun. And now we get to see Esme's view on her first "son" falling in love, and welcoming a new daughter to the family.

The eternal mother's perspective on Twilight. Rated PG-13 for some very mild Carlisle/Esme fluff.

(And yes I did see the whole "eternal" pun)

I really liked this story, it's great that you chose Esme's POV. I saw you worked on it a long time ago, but I hope you haven't given up on it, it's really good.

Yes it's true, longer chapters are prefered by readers. but when the story is good, we don't mind shorter ones. I hope  you decide to continue.

Being away from family and in a different environment, isn't for everyone. Some do great, others, need different settings, that's Edward.

They both go to the diner frequently, it seems, but never had bumped into each  other. Eugene and Helga probably had thought about it, they were very encouraging with Edward, and perhaps, that story about the containers was.... not exactly true.

Will he go look for her? Or wait until next Saturday?

"Uh, sorry" wasn't a sentence, but with "that" in front of her, it was a miracle she was able to even say that. And then she was able to jump, run out and not trip.

Wow!!! he was something, but Bella is certain, she probably can't get a guy like that.

Esme and Carlisle's worry and concern is of course apparent but in a way filled with love. They understan how things are better than other people do, but yet support their son. And of course Carlisle will do everything and more to give Bella more time.

Date: February 11, 2009 Title: Chapter 16: Chapter 16 Past

To say or think what if is usually pointless and ends up hurting, so it's great Bella took Carlisle's story as she did. The past can't be changed, but it has a strong impact on what life can offer now. So Bella is willing to give Carlisle the chance he didn't  have back then.

About the bet... what will they do to each other in order to be the one to win? it will be a fun 5 days, and the end with the Playboy shoot and your writing skills :) :) :)
