Question - What I'm reading

I've had several people ask me in reviews for recommendations on other fics that I like, and as readers of my blog I'd like to ask you for your feedback. Would you like to see an addition to the blog involving other stories that I read. If I do this, I would not only be commenting on stories that I like,but also ones that I didn't and why. For those of you that have submitted reviews to me, even negative ones, you know that I'm not malicious. I figure that if I took the time to read a story, then why not say why I loved it, liked it, or it bugged the crap out of me.

Again, this is an idea I'm throwing around. Comments?

FB - Chapter 29 Teaser

“Oh no thank you, dear.” Esme took a seat on the couch. I followed her lead and sat in my chair across from her. “I’m sure you’re wondering why I’m here,” she said before I could comment.

“Well, yes, the thought did cross my mind.”

She looked around again. “Is Isabella here?”

“Yes,” I answered. “She just went to her room to get something. I’m sure she’ll be out shortly.”

“Oh. Well, good,” she said shifting in her seat slightly. My aunt was a very composed woman and for her to be nervous I knew it had to be something serious she wanted to discuss.

It would be better to get to the bottom of this quickly. “What is it, Esme?”

“Edward, I don’t know what happened Sunday between you and your uncle, but he is extremely upset about it. I may not know what’s going on, but I’m not stupid. I know whatever it is it has to do with Isabella. Maybe if the two of you talked…”

“No,” I said making it clear that I was not about to budge.

She looked at me almost pleading. “It is about Isabella isn’t it?”


“She’s seems to be a sweet girl. I don’t see why…”

I had no idea what my uncle had told her, but I figured there was no sense in sugar coating this for her. She may not need to know about my lifestyle, but as far as I was concerned, Isabella was going to be a permanent fixture in my life. “Carlisle does not approve of my relationship with Isabella.”

“Edward that doesn’t make any sense. I know you’re uncle…”

“He doesn’t like me,” Isabella whispered.

FB - Chapter 28 Teaser

Alice moved just a little to the left and the sunlight reflected off her necklace. It was silver, like mine, but much thicker. Not something a woman would normally wear.

My hand rose to the collar Edward gave me. The metal felt good under my fingertips. It was strange now that I thought about it. I wasn’t a slave anymore. I wasn’t owned by anyone. Why did knowing that I still had this piece of him around my neck make me feel better?

I closed my eyes and gathered my thoughts. It was now or never. “Alice?” I paused, and she waited.

Before I was able to get my question out though, the server came with our salads. After she checked to make sure we had everything we needed, we were once again left alone. Too much time had passed and I was wondering if I should even bring it up now.

“What is it?” Alice asked.

It was only then that I noticed I was only moving the lettuce around my plate. I hadn’t even taken a bite yet.

Once again, I closed my eyes and gave myself a pep talk. “Is your necklace? I mean is it…”

“You mean is it a collar?”

I nodded.

“Yes,” she answered as if she were talking about the weather. She didn’t miss a beat of eating her salad.“It’s one of them. I have several, but this is the one I usually wear to work.”

One of them? “Why?” I swallowed nervously. “Why do you have more than one?”

“Well I have ones I wear everyday and then ones that are only for the playroom.”

“Play…room?” No matter how much I wished it weren’t so, I could hear my voice shake.

“Yes, the playroom.” She cocked her head to the side. “What’s wrong?”

“I don’t like play…rooms,” I whispered.
