Describe yourself in  three words. That's how I found myself beside the ocean, with sea salt  tangled hair, sun kissed by a boy who showed me the answers. The boy in  the shadows. The boy in the shade. Rated M

Living the perfect life with no cares or responsibilities suited Bella  just fine, but her family had other ideas and all of a sudden everything  was changing... and not necessarily in a good way. One last night out,  one quick escape through a bathroom window, one assumption about her new  boss plus so many other things proved to be one mistake after another  or so it seemed. Rated M

The bitter, the sweet by Rochelle Allison 
Bella's 24. She's got a career she loves, close family & friends,  and a little girl she loves more than anything. She doesn't need  anything more, but sometimes she sure wants it, and when Edward shows up  he'll either upset the balance or make everything sweeter.  Rated M

You Came Too Early by Elliania
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

You’re My Best Friend by assilem33
"He looks me up and down kind of slowly, and I can feel my face flush,  but I ignore the feeling because Edward is my best friend, and he's  married. He's not supposed to look at me like that. I'm not supposed to  like it." Rated M
