Take a look at this great list of recommendations and take a moment to let the author know where you saw them and leave them some love! Happy Reading :)

♥ Nic & Six

A Bullet from Chekhov's Gun by Callmepagliacci-rec'd by Katinki
"Charming" was the first deep cover Edward Cullen ever affected, years before he became a spy. Bella Swan is an American girl at Oxford with skills MI6 wants. "Befriending" Bella Swan will be his most challenging mission yet. Rated M

Abandoned Heart by Kitchmill-rec'd by Cappricorn75
I wanted to push him away, to tell him to just go now, because I was a battle he'd never win. Rated M

Catch My Breath by Tanglingshadows-rec'd by MrsSpaceCowboy
Once upon a time, a quirky woman barreled into a soft-spoken man's life and turned it upside down. Not that he complained about it. Rated M

Days Like This by Soft Ragoo-rec'd by MrsSpaceCowboy
Bella and her newborn adjust to their life together but it seems everywhere they go, they encounter the same man with the captivating eyes and sexy smile. Edward's life lacks something he desires. Has he been handed a challenge or a reward? Rated M

I Can't Outrun You by MariahajilE-rec'd by Nic
A girl who can't trust. A guy who wants to show her how. A short story about how love really is all you need. E/B. M for lemons, language, love, laughter, and life. Rated M

Jurisdiction by StillDreaming85-rec'd by Sherry N./Nic
War has ripped the world apart and Bella is living in one of the few cities left in the States. Life is cruel, there is no freedom, food is scarce, and a few people hold all the power. Will Bella be able to survive? Will Edward be able to save her from Mike's snare? - Thugward Rated M

Quiet On The Set by Duhitsangie-rec'd by Midnight Cougar
America's sweetheart Isabella Swan and Hollywood's playboy Edward Cullen are cast together in an upcoming movie. Will there be sparks or will things just be quiet on the set? And is everything the tabloids say just as it seems? Rated M

Rest My Soul by MrsSpaceCowboy-rec'd by Nic
On opposite corners of Third Street and Beale, two lonely people fight to stay that way. Her scars are on the surface, soft on her skin and in her eyes. His run bone-deep, seeped in bourbon and blues. EPOV. Rated M

Rhapsody in B by Lillybellis-rec'd by Nic/Jaime
When a rising musician falls in love with his small-town childhood friend, can their yearly New Year's Eve tradition bring them together once he rockets to stardom and leaves her behind? Rated M

Snapshots by LyricalKris-rec'd by Cappricorn75/Sixdlb5
When his older brother walked out on his girlfriend, Bella, on the worst night of her life, Edward was there to pick up the pieces. Jasper breezed back into town after being missing for three years to find his family had reformed around the hole he left behind. Rated M

Spark by AngelycDevil-rec'd by Evilnat
The worlds of Austen-loving rocker Bella and quiet computer-geek Edward collide in one passion-filled moment, but he thinks it's too good to be true. Will another chance encounter smack in the back of his head and change his mind or will he be too late? Rated M

The Best I Ever Had by WhatsMyNomDePlume-rec'd by MrsSpaceCowboy
Sex between friends complicates everything. Bella knows this. But she has no idea how much more Edward is going to complicate things. Rated M

The Late Late Show With Edward Cullen by Chartwilightmom-rec'd by Jenn G.
Bella is a famous actress and Edward is a host of a late night talk show. What do they whisper to each other when they greet each other on stage? Rated M

The Learning Curve by Amethyst Jackson-rec'd by Nic/CarrieZM
When Bella's boyfriend brings up the issue of her virginity with his ex, she decides to take charge of her own fate. Rated M

The Lottery of Life by IBACULLEN-rec'd by Coppertop
Bella has been blessed with the finer things in life. She has always been focused on what she has and never understanding that money doesn't buy you everything. It will take one stupid bet and a homeless man to teach her what really is important in life. Can Edward get through to snobby Bella Swan and show her what she has been missing? Rated M

The Road Home by Iridescent Silver-rec'd by Nic
"I let it go. It's like swimming against the current. It exhausts you. After a while, whoever you are, you just have to let go, and the river brings you home." ― Joanne Harris. Rated M

Tunes with Tony Masen by Just4ALE-rec'd by Nic/Sixdlb5
Our late night calls were fascinating. His attitude in person was frustrating. Stupid radio host with the velvety, seductive voice. Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde? Will the real Tony Masen please stand up? Rated M

Walk With Me? by Windchymes-rec'd by Cappricorn75
Bella makes a decision she believes is for the best, but it seems the universe doesn't agree. Rated M

What's In A Name by Bnpwrites-rec'd by Nic
Edward's got a Caddy, a lame nickname, and a thing for Jake's girl. Life is funny sometimes. Rated M

Wisp by Cris-rec'd by Edmazing
Edward wins more than he bargained for at what was supposed to be a friendly poker game. Rated M
