What we're reading in TLS this week:

One thing we can all agree upon, is that a bad-ass Edward makes for an intriguing story. Something to sink your teeth into. We’ve compiled a list of recs that have a collection of strong, assertive, and yes, bad-ass Edwards (and quite possibly Bellas) for you to enjoy. Some stories are old, some stories are new, but in case you need a recap-dive in with us below. We hope that you enjoy these stories just as much as we do! As always, leave the writers some love and let them know TLS sent you!

Awkwardly Yours by Vancouver-Canuck-Girl

Even in Death by drotuno

Home for the Harvest by compass54
Montana, 1000 feet above the Missouri River, was the last photo shoot  before my vacation. The Cullen family, expanding the brand of their  high-end whiskey, hired me to photograph their harvest. They chose an  unknown male model to add sex to the campaign, and I knew working with  an amateur would be a challenge. I never knew their seductive country  boy would have me begging for more. Rated M

Nothing Gold Ever Stays by xXTailoredDreamsXx
"The choices we make when we're young, decide who we will be when we're old, Bella. One right choice can change everything. One wrong choice can take everything away."

Say Goodbye by MariahajilE
Sadness, anger, acceptance, love. This is the story of Bella Cullen's goodbye. Rated M

He stepped back, his face evil and twisted. He was like an avenging angel - straight from hell. He held out his hand. Marriage or death.Did Bella have a choice? Rated M

The Geheime Vernietiging by amoredjenaue
Grief, Revenge, Redemption, Love. He never got over his brother's death,  but he also never saw her coming. "Sometimes I feel like I am burning  when I am around you." I murmured as I slowly lowered my head to her  ear, and I could hear her breath quicken. "But it's a good burn."  Rated M

The Invisible Line by littlecat358
Edward and Bella, friends since high school, are very close. So close,  that the line between friendship and something more is often blurred.  Will they ever cross the line or will they always teeter on the edge of  what could be? Rated M
