Angel Wings by MsSailorman-rec'd by Midnight Cougar
"'Jesus, Bella' Alice shouted at me. I blinked repeatedly. I couldn't help myself. He'd been leaning over the dishwasher to put his coffee mug away and my eyes just . . . slipped. It wasn't my fault. His ass was just so . . . so . . . perfect. Round, taut, wrapped in denim. Yummy." Bella is infatuated with her best friend's father and his extraordinary rear. Rated M

Artful Maneuvers by Planetblue-rec'd by Nic
I needed to figure out who Edward Cullen was before he figured out me. Rated M

Break Statement by Winterhorses-rec'd by MariahajilE
Hunger, food, guilt, failure, hunger, binge, purge. Repeat. A routine that becomes a life that becomes an infinite loop with no imaginable end, with no way to break free. Except one. It's a foregone conclusion for her, a matter of time, a question of when. She's ready for it to be now. A green-eyed stranger is the only thing that stands between her and the escape she longs for. Rated M

Break the Skin by Ta Paixao-rec'd by Midnight Cougar
Returning to Washington from a deployment, Sgt. Edward Cullen isn't ready to go home to face his family and estranged fiancé. Instead, he crashes with Sgt. Jacob Black and his childhood best friend, Bella. He knew this was a bad idea. Rated M

Burn by Compass54-rec'd by Layathomemom
"I'm going up to see that bastard right now and ask him if he feels good about what he's done! I might even punch him for the hell of it!" Uh oh, and now their offices are going to be right next to each other! She wants nothing to do with him. He thinks she's wonderful. Danger and mystery will bring these two together so their love can ignite. Rated M

Casual Observer of a Secret Admirer by shouldbecleaning-rec'd by Midnight Cougar
Isabella Swan thought she was invisible at school. At least she had been since the accident with Tyler's van. But now someone is leaving notes in her locker, signed Your Secret Admirer. Rated M

Elemental by TallulahBelle-rec'd by Maplestyle
When the Swans return to their birthplace, Bella learns she is no ordinary teenager, and Forks is no ordinary town. Can she fulfill her destiny with the powerful Edward Cullen, or will the dark forces that threaten their families destroy them all? Rated M

Fly Away Home by LyricalKris-rec'd by Cappricorn75
Because her own life was so devoid of it, Bella always wanted to protect sweetness and innocence in other people. Maybe that was what drew her to Edward, a strange, socially awkward, but very sweet man. She couldn't know the secret he held-that he wasn't what he seemed, and she was the one being protected. Rated M

Masen Boys by Jdifrans1-rec'd by Nic
Is there anything better than watching three hot guys building a block foundation? Bella and Rose don't think so - that is until drinks after work lead them to meet the Masens face to face. Rated M

Private Intentions by Greye Granger-rec'd by Nic
When PI Bella Swan is hired by Mrs. Tanya Cullen to investigate her husband, Bella quickly learns that maybe she is investigating the wrong person. Maybe her husband has been running from something or someone...will Bella find out what lies beneath the twisted and terrifying past of Edward Cullen? Rated M

Somewhere Between Nothing and Everything by Myotherlife-rec'd by Nic
Federal prosecutor Bella Swan is already standing on the precipice of a dark abyss when her world is thrown into madness. Struggling for a lifeline, the reemergence of a man she vowed never to trust again will change everything. Life and death. Love and hate. In the middle of obscurity, what is the cost of redemption? Rated M

The Imprint by Kat097-rec'd by Edmazing
In a world where imprinting is the norm and to think of resisting it is to face social disgrace, Bella Swan finds herself facing the dilemma of whether she should follow her instincts or her beliefs. Rated M

This Girl's Life by Staceleo-rec'd by Nic
Flannels, candy necklaces, Nirvana and a desire for independence for a girl on the cusp of adulthood. He was the mystery that drew her in and the possibility of happiness or sorrow depending on his whims. Inspired by My So-Called Life. Rated M

We Were Here by lola-pops -rec'd by EveryFreakingBody!!!
Upon waking, there's a brief, blissful period in which you don't yet recall the sins of the night before, but eventually, you have to open your eyes. I'm Bella Swan, seventeen years old, cheerleader. This morning I woke up in the wrong bed. Rated M

You Came Too Early by Elliania-rec'd by EveryFreakingBody!!
Edward and Bella married too young and for all the wrong reasons, so no one acted surprised when their marriage crumbled down. Two kids and five years later, events force them to live under the same roof for a while. Will they realize what they lost? Rated M
