Reviews by belled_70

Bella and Mike wed four years ago and their marriage hasn't exactly been the picture of bliss. A carefully guarded secret surfaces, destroying an already fragile Bella. Everything she knew was a lie, everything she wanted for her life, wiped out with the click of a mouse. An E x B story.

There is mention of past sexual assault, crappy childhoods, an even crappier marriage, and some very prevalent social issues (that I’m not going to mention here, because it would defeat the purpose of reading the story).

Excerpt: I looked at the clock again, 5:44.  Jesus Christ, did time stand still? Those fourteen minutes felt like fourteen hours.  As the moments ticked by, my palms began to sweat and a nervous pressure mounted in my chest. It's not the end of the world Bella; just the end of your marriage...and everything you knew. God, how was I going to do this? People up and left their spouses on a daily basis and never looked back. Of course, how many of them were under these same circumstances, I wondered.  How many women were faced with leaving the man they loved because he'd woven a lie so hurtful? When it finally surfaced, did it kill them?

Yay, Bella's finally in her new house. Damn Emm and his powers of perception - fingerblocking ExB - poor thing must be so frustrated by now. Looking forward to the next chapter

Author's Response:

Emmy sucks! Okay... I take that back, I love Emmy-Lou Who, so I'll forgive him. I know, I know a little UST is good though. Don't you fear, the bases WILL be rounded... home runs are in the future. PROMISE.


Thanks for reading, MissJanuary

Hi Jen, It always makes me angry (on behalf of the writers) when you feel the need to defend your story - the whole point of these sites are for the writers to tell a story the way you have imagined it, and for someone to come along and start to criticise, it is so not fair. I also agree that a lot of the times the reviews help you to become a better writer, but I am sorry that you felt you needed to defend the way things have developed in your story.

On a much brighter note I happen to love your story and almost feel giddy every time I see an update from you. The chapter was fantastic I can't wait for Bella to experience her firsts with Edward, Nicole :0)

Miss Nicole,

I've only had the displeasure of having to deal one person who didn't like the choices my characters were making. And normally one person would never have been enough for me to say anything, but I felt like that person (and hopefully she's read that little ditty) needed be reminded of exactly why, as you said, sites like this exsist. I do believe that the feedback you guys give me, good or bad, makes me better at what I do, but theres a difference between feed back and crude behaviour. Way I figure, if you don't like the flavour, move on the another dish. That being said 99% of you are loving this and that makes me tons of happy!!

The first that are on the way were a lot of fun to write, so I hope you'll enjoy them. As for the game, you get have points. You've got the band but not the song. So check your inbox, I've sent half the teaser :)

Hi MJ, loved the chapter - I am thinking the RL experience was in relation to Rose and the one piece lacey thing..... :0)

Author's Response:

You'd be correct, it was indeed the one piece devil's trap. LOL. Glad you enjoyed the chapter. Here's your teaser, butplease keep in mind that it has yet to be beta'ed and it subject to my fucking with it, possibly numerous times before posting it. 




The smell of French toast and sausages wafted into the room and my mouth watered. “I smell yummy stuff,” I murmured, untangling my body from the mess of sheets.

“You smell yummy.” Edward nuzzled his face to the crook of my neck.

“I smell like sex.”

“Like I said, yummy.”

I pushed myself up. I gathered my clothes, got dressed, and kissed Edward on the forehead before heading to the bathroom. I had planned on heading down to the kitchen to steak my claim on the meaty goodness that was cooking before the boys had the chance to devour it, but I didn’t make it past the bathroom’s threshold.

I giggled when Edward closed the bathroom door behind me and pinned me to it. “Isabella Marie Cullen…fuck that sounds so good, kitten. So good.” His voice was low and his head was buried between my boobs, but there was little about the act that was sexual. He was listening to my heart. Ear pressed to the gentle valley between my not so mountainous breasts.

I pulled my fingers through his hair and sighed. I could practically feel the happy coming off him in waves. My soft smile grew. When Edward had proposed last night, initially I’d froze. My blood had run cold, and I wanted so very much to run from the room. Then I took a deep breath and listened to the sound of his heart beating. Feeling it beating under my palm, the ice began to melt, and my own heart worked faster. The thought that he really wanted me, wanted me forever made me warm and all girly-fuzzy kind of happy.  But I’d been there and done that, and I knew it wasn’t about the production, it was about forever. It was about finding that one person to love for the rest of your life and giving them everything you are.

I wanted Edward to have all of me. I wanted him to take away my name and history and rewrite it all. I suddenly felt guilty for putting limits on it. Edward never got his wedding; his fairytale night never happened. “Baby, if you want a big wedding, I…I can do that for you if that’s what you want. I’m sorry I got all weird last night. You surprised me…and scared me.” I cupped his beautiful face and brought him to my eye level. “What do you want?”  

“You,” he said, his eyes intense and a little on the glassy side.

I smiled and kissed his nose. “You have me. But what do you want? I’ve done this before, but you haven’t. It was selfish of me to try to take that away from you.”

His arms snaked around my waist and pulled me. “You, Bella. I want you. I want simple and easy and relaxed. But I have one request…”

Edward is so sweet (even if his mind is running a porno all the time), but everything he said to Bella is to help her gain her confidence, and that is pretty cool - can't wait to read more, Merry Christmas, Nicole :0)

Author's Response:

Hola Nicole!

That Vanilla ice cream thing popped into my head long before I'd written this chapter, and I wanted it somewhere becasue I liked the image way too much. So in the 2nd re-write it ended up in here, glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the review my dear, catch you in the next chapter.

Awwww that was a really sweet chapter - I am so happy that Ryan has decided he is able to call exb Ma and Dad, I think it would be a hard thing for a 10 yr old to get his head around. I am loving your story and am looking forward to the next chapter, Nic :0)

Hi Shasta, I still feel (personally) that Ryan is taking this all too well, however on saying that it is your fic and I totally respect that you are writing the way you feel things would happen. I am glad that BxE had their parental rights restored and that the Judge listeened to Ryan in relation to visitation. I understand that it would be hard for Esme and Carlisle to deal with, however I don't think they fully see this from BxE's POV given that they never signed away their rights in the first place. Sorry not sure if I am making much sense, but I really am enjoying reading this and find it very thought provoking at the same time. It would be such a difficult situation from all parties involved. Looking forward to reading the next instalment, Nicole :0)

Author's Response:

Thank you. Ryan is taking it well right now. It's not even been two months, so the idea that he has "real" parents is still novel.

Determined to get back in his father's good graces, Edward befriends Isabella, the only daughter of Carlisle's close personal friend who has come to live with the Cullen's for the next year while she fulfills her scholarship to study contemporary ballet under the prestigious Victoria James at the Washington Academy of Performing Arts in Seattle. Edward's plan backfires when Carlisle forbids his son from being with Bella, but can Edward keep his distance now that he's found his new addiction?
