What I've Been Reading

I've had a little down time as I'm waiting to start editing my next novel so I've been doing a lot of reading.

Last Tango In Forks

This story is written by AwesomeSauce76 and is rated M/NC-17. The story is now complete.

I'd heard about this story from so many people that I decided to give it a try. The story opens with Bella deciding that maybe it's time to move out of her father's home. She sees a signed for an appartment for rent in a store window and decides to go take a look. But when she arrives goes to look around the small apartment, she finds much more than she'd ever imagined, a man who with one look makes her forget about everything but him and the way he makes her feel.

If you are looking for good lemons, then this story is one you should definately put on your list. They are pleantiful and well written. I have to say that there was a point in the story where the smut was taking the lead in the story and I found myself starting to skim. Thankfully, the storyline started to move a chapter or two after that.

One thing I feel needs to be said in warning regarding this story is that at the begining of it Bella is engaged to Jacob. If you don't wish to read about cheating, then this tory is not for you.

Overall Last Tango in Forks was a fun read. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

My Facebook Reunion

This story is written by Eternally Cullen and is rated M. It is a Work in Progress, however, it appears to be winding down.

It was this story's banner that caught my attention, then the summary. The title is a little deceiving as Facebook only places a minor, but important role in the story. Bella and Edward went to high school together and it's time for their 10 year class reunion. They reconnect via Facebook after they both RSVP for the reunion.

This was a cute story. It wasn't one of those fics that knocks my socks off, but it was an fun read. There is some drama in it involving a past relationship of Bella's, but other than that, it is light hearted and full of fluff and romance.

I give this story 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.

Sexual Healing

This story is written by wmrcaz and is rated M/NC-17. It is a work in progress.

I don't remember what drew me to this story, but I have to say that I'm glad at whatever did. This story is one of my favorites right now. It has a unique storyline twist on the badboy Edward I've seen so often in fics. Bella is a sex therapist who has agreed as a favor to Carlisle to see his son Edward. Edward, however, wants no part in therapy. Well, nothing accept for getting into Bella's pants. Although the premise for this sounds 'done before', it really does have well developed characters with faults and insecurities.

There are some lemons in this story, but contrary to the title, it is not all about the smut. It is more about the healing.

I give this story 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

If you've read any of these stories, please leave a comment. We are all looking for good fics. :)
