What we're reading in TLS this week:

This week at The Lemonade Stand, we have been reviewing some gems we loved and some we didn't get to the first time they came around. Here are a list of some of those recommendations along with a few new things to spice things up. We hope they capture your attention, like they did ours. Dive in and leave the writers some love. Tell them where you saw them recommended. Happy Monday!

A Change of Heart by GemmaH-rec'd by Maplestyle
Christmas in Chicago is little more than a duty visit for Edward Cullen, but that's before he gets the call that will change his life together. A birthday fic collaboration for Sparrownotes24 by Chocaholic123 & GemmaH. Rated M

An Angry Man by Katinki-rec'd by EvilNat
COMPLETE. Edward is a bitter, angry man, a man suffering the sins of his past. An emotional & physical recluse, he pushes everyone away. That is, until Bella, a mysterious woman with her own demons, moves in and forces him to face himself. AH. Rated M

Angel Is A Centerfold by LyricalKris-rec'd by Cappricorn75
The Madonna-whore complex. The idea that women's sexual expression is limited to being virginal or being degraded. Or lady in the streets and a freak in the sheets? Pffft. Where's the fun in that? Rated M

Baby by HelliesWorld-rec'd by Nic
Smart, and savvy Bella wants a baby. She is willing to go the mile for one. Edward just happens upon her path. Rated M

Hard to Love by Drotuno-rec'd by Maplestyle
I didn't know how to ask him if I was going to lose the one person that had loved me unconditionally my entire life. Bella Swan had been in every moment of my life since I was seven years old. Eighteen years. She was there for it all, and it wasn't supposed to end like this. Rated M

How Do I Live by Bethesda Gray-rec'd by Maplestyle
When Edward abandons Bella to discover a human life for herself, the resulting damage is something that neither of them could have imagined, and neither can heal alone. Rated M

Indelible by bannerday-rec'd by Nic
Some experiences, some people, stick with you forever, leaving their mark on your memories. You can't escape what they meant to you and you can't re-write the past. It's indelible. But the future isn't set in stone…it's yours to write. A story about forks in the road of life and a past with a future. Rated M

Off the Cuff by Maplestyle-rec'd by Layathomemom
Pro hockey player Edward Masen's world spirals out of control when he makes an off-the-cuff comment about how he'd personally celebrate scoring four goals in one game. *Inspired by real life events.* Rated M

Play, Pause, Repeat by RRose-rec'd by Cappricorn75
Bella Swan knows that YouTube's most subscribed gamer Edward Cullen goes to the same university as she does. She knows collaborating with him in one video will boost her fledgling cooking channel's traffic as well. What she doesn't know is that views and subscribers aren't the only things Edward can give her. Looks like their shippers might actually be on to something. Rated M

Smoke on the Water by FyreMasen-rec'd by Nic
Smoke on the Water is an annual barbeque and music festival held in a small Georgia town. It draws crowds from far and wide. Only this year, country star Bella Swan is gonna be the main act. What happens when a couple of good ole country boys win passes to meet her? Rated M

Sway by Love notes from morgan o'mally-rec'd by Nic
A story of two people. Paths cross, lives blend and they discover they like each other more everyday. A simple, possible love story where the palms line the shore. EPOV. Rated M

The Breakers by Les16-rec'd by EvilNat
After spending 7 years in prison, Edward gets a new start in the fishing village of Corea, Maine. Can a little girl and her mom, Bella, see beyond his past and can they all find love again...or will the ocean swallow them whole? Rated M

To Her Door by Thimbles-rec'd by MonicaNP
She said, "I'm not standing by, to watch you slowly die / So watch me walking, out the door." A story based on the Paul Kelly song and told in three parts. Rated M

The Infinity Axiom by miss.eli-rec'd by Midnight Cougar
Axiom - a premise so obvious as to be accepted as true without controversy. Edward and Bella were best friends until a perfect storm of circumstances, insecurities, and misunderstandings separated them. But some things are just meant to be, even if they take a slight detour. Rated M

Two Blue Lines by Payton79-rec'd by Midnight Cougar
Bella, a good girl, was dumped by her long-time boyfriend. Edward, a young doctor, is feeling suffocated by his father's plans. Waking up next to a stranger is a shock for a good girl. Seeing the girl of your dreams run out on you the morning after sucks for a nice guy. What if two blue lines will bind the two together for life? What if they can't even remember how they came to be? Rated M
