Edward in the Afternoon by Cosmogirl7481-rec’d by CarrieZM
My birthday present for Marvar: A boy meets girl story with sweltering heat, iced coffee and lots of sex... ExB, AH and OOC because no one is a virgin. Rated M

Empty Chairs at Empty Tables by Lyrical Kris-rec’d by MariahajilE
The wake of a tragedy—a school shooting—has far reaching consequences. Edward was living his life as though he had to make up for the four people who died in front of his eyes. Bella's life had been blown apart before it really started. Two strangers who happened to come back to the scene of the crime on the same day. Rated M

Evergreen Loop by Vican-rec'd by LayAtHomeMom
The downside of high school: cafeteria food sucks, and sometimes, you're cast as the weirdo. On the bright side, sometimes Edward Cullen is your best friend. Even if it is a secret.
Rated M

Felt by LayAtHomeMom-rec'd by CarrieZM
Former lovers lay it all out on the table. Taking shots never hurt this good. Entry for the Dirty Talkin' Edward Twific Contest. Rated M

Final Destination by Edward’s Eternal-rec’d by JennG
Two lost, lonely people travelling to different destinations. One storm that brings them together. Could their meeting alter their final destination? Rated M

I Know My Duty by Ithilwen K-Bane-rec’d by LayAtHomeMom
Edward walked a knife's edge in Volterra. What if things hadn't gone quite so well? Love can survive when it is surrounded by monsters, but it does not survive unchanged, especially not for one of the Volturi. Deviation 'fic-New Moon. Canon Edward and other characters.
Rated M

Jack & Crush by Meteoronamoonlessnight-rec’d by Nic
Shy, reserved Edward has a little too much Jack Daniels after finding his fiancée cheating on him. Waking up the next morning in a strange woman's bed, he fights the pull he feels for her. Will he realize they're fated for each other, or will he only focus on their differences? Rated M

Keep the Tofurkey, Bring on the Beer by MrsSpaceCowboy-rec'd by Nic
Bella Swan wants an escort for Thanksgiving weekend. Edward Cullen wants a second chance. Charlie wants to know where Renee hid the key to his gun safe. Happy Thanksgiving! *First Place and Funniest Popular Vote in the Twilight of Craigslist Contest. Rated M

Milk Teeth by Sparrownotes24-rec'd by LayAtHomeMom
England 1991. Indie rock and bombs, fire and riots. We partied and ran wild, trying to find ourselves amongst the ashes. I found a lot more than that. Rated M

My Shipper Heart by Marvar-rec'd by Midnight Cougar
Edward wasn't looking for anyone, but he found her just the same. It's too bad she thinks he's just a client. Rated M

Seventh and Pine by Iambeagle-rec'd by Nic
Eating food, drinking beer, and watching football are acceptable ways to spend your Thanksgiving Day. Wooing your niece's insanely attractive babysitter, however, is not. EPOV Rated M

Sincerely, Sargeant Masen by 2carm2carm2-rec’d by LayAtHomeMom
One bored night, Bella goes online and stumbles across an American's soldier's profile. On a whim she decides to write Sergeant Masen a letter. She never thought she would get a response back from Iraq, much less fall in love with a man in combat boots. Rated M

The Affair by Johnnyboy7-rec'd by CarrieZM
After the death of her father, Isabella Swan moves to the East coast where she meets dentist Edward Cullen. He's older, a father, and married. Sometimes, you can't tell your heart who to love. Rated M

The Man in the Elevator by MountainTop76-rec'd by Midnight Cougar
Bella lives for her morning elevator ride, and the sexy stranger she shares it with, but what will happen one night when she works late? Contest entry for the Control. Possess. Seduce. Contest. Rated M

Where I Belong by bnpwrites-rec’d by Midnight Cougar
Bella Swan never expected superstar Edward Cullen to wander into Walgreen's and she never expected him to change her life. Rated M
