Oh noes! Ryan should know that no good ever comes from eavesdropping-especially when you jump to conclusions. And are you going to have Taylor stomp on his heart, too?

Oh my God poor Ryan! Who are Sandy and Kiki talking about? I really hope Taylor makes him feel better, even if it's just a quick are you ok?, the fact that she'll ask would be enough for him.
So how many more chapters to this story? One or two?

Wow...Great last two posts. I love the POVs from the two of them. Ryan's thoughts of Seth and his escapades with Alex...funny. Hope things go well for Ryan at the dance. As for the overheard conversation...I'm wondering if they are actaully speaking about maybe Jimmy. Not sure. I don't know the whole background on this fic since it's the first in the series. But if is is a little close to the original, that's my guess. But I could be wrong and it be someone completely different.
Looking forward to more!

Poor Ryan! I don't think they were talking about you. I am looking forward to the dance to see what Ryan will be up to as well as Taylor.

Oh no! Poor Ryan, overhearing the wrong conversation... but his determination to have Taylor is yummy. He needs a big hug and I think she's the one to give it to him...

aw poor Ryan. They weren't talking about you, honey. Evil Cal! C'mon already. Let Ryan nail the girl.

So I'm getting the feeling Ryan's going to cut loose a little later. The dance is going to be freakin' awesome!

I love this story, the build up and the tension, but I really wanna scream at Taylor. :-)

I am so excited to hear that Taylor spent the entire weekend thinking about Ryan and their shared kiss! Dare I hope that she is beginning to see the light...That Ryan is the one she should be focusing her intense attention on rather than his adoringly clueless brother.
I am also not ashamed to admit that I can totally see why Taylor would have trouble keeping her mind from straying in the naughty thoughts direction. I mean seriously, how could she not when temptation is always staring her in the face in the delicious form of one RYAN ATWOOD! I love how he is subtly taunting her with just his presence and his smug attitude! I am so glad he is going after what he wants and being proactive! This is such a welcome change. LOL at Taylor's urge to either slap him or hold him but mostly just kiss him!
I cracked up at the fact that Taylor still couldn't stop imaging him naked all day in school. I enjoyed the reflection of how Taylor didn't want to be anything like her mother. Goodness knows her mother is a frightening role model but a perfect one to use on how not to be!
I am all kinds of giddy at how much he is affecting her! Keep it up Ryan! I loved how she told him it couldn't happen again. I loved how nonchalant he was at her announcement and said okay. I enjoyed her reaction at how easily he gave in. I was thrilled with his explanation that the next move is hers! His smug attitude is so HOT!
I am also happy to see that over the weekend she has started to take note of how Ryan looks at her! But then she has to go and blow the progress by thinking he is just going to go back to Marissa since he is just one of her many on again off again boys toys (yes, that made me chuckle, even if it doesn't paint Ryan in a favorable light). But part of me can't blame her for not wanting to risk it given his track record with Marissa.
I am still in shock though that she rejected his offer of the winter dance after signaling for him to ASK her! She is really trying my patience the way Seth often does to Ryan! LOL She better make it up to him for being such a moron and chasing after Seth again because he is taking Alex. I keep telling myself she is only doing it because she is scared, I hope I am right, so I don't have to be full out mad at her. LOL
Dare I hope that after the scene Taylor witnessed at the Bait shop she is finally seeing the light! Her and I are in total agreement she has been an idiot with her recent behavior. I too hope it isn't too late to fix things. In fact I am almost afraid of the answer to that question in the next chapter. Ryan can do stupid things to when he is hurting as well.
Another fantastic update! I can't wait for more! Please don't make me regret saying that either. LOL Just kidding! I know that whatever you have planned will be absolutely perfect for these two stubborn people, who belong together!

THIS STORY IS MY OXYGEN
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE UPDATE C:
| Angell4NEPatriots 8/24/08 . chapter 11
Okay now even though you have a new chapter up already this one is too delicious to go unnoticed by me! I loved, loved, LOVED this chapter! I know your intention was to have Ryan seduce Taylor at the end but I must say I was seduced quite thoroughly myself, LOL.
I felt bad for Taylor just a bit upon finding out that Seth really put his plan into motion to make Summer jealous when she arrived at the club. I hope Taylor took note that you can't mess with DESTINY! Sometimes Seth can be a real idiot though!
LMAO at both Ryan and Alex checking out Taylor! That was so priceless! But they both have fabulous taste! I enjoyed their conversation with Alex encouraging Ryan to tell Taylor how he felt. I loved the part where he admitted to himself that he wanted Taylor and before he could talk himself out of it, he said to hell with that, he didn't have anything to feel bad about and their differences and what anyone thought! Talk about a turning point! I was so proud of him in that moment.
I adored the good night scene at the door with her expressing her frustrations and confessing how she wouldn't subject herself to another miserable date being reminded of everything she is not! I love Ryan for being astute enough to get to the heart of the matter and convince her that she was indeed beautiful. I love Ryan wanting to take on all those who have played a part in making Taylor feel the way she does about herself.
Now I will agree that Ryan isn't all that great with words but he sure does know who to make up for that with his actions! I loved hoe he surprised her with a kiss. I loved how she was startled before she gave herself up to the moment. Talk about an intensely charged moment! I will admit that was my favorite part! As I said, I was just as seduced as Taylor. LOL
Trust Taylor to try to play it all off. I adore how Ryan didn't let her get away with anything, challenging her to tell him why she kissed him back as their bodies were still pressed together. As of that wasn't absolutely fabulous enough, he gives her another earth shattering kiss, just as amazing as the first! *SIGH* This was so divine!
I loved how he looked back before leaving her noting how dazed she still was standing on her porch with her finger touching the lips he just kissed! I am so giddy with these turn of events!
Thank you for this amazing chapter! Thank you also for the welcome back, that was so sweet of you! It is good to be back. I miss being able to respond the way I like to. LOL And yes, I am working on an update as well.
| krisz 8/24/08 . chapter 12
I was loving Taylor's reaction to the kiss. Ryan was so smug too! It was great. I loved Taylor bringing up the winter dance. Then the M word was mentioned. I was feeling bad for Taylor but poor Ryan here. I am glad Taylor realized her mistake and I am hoping Ryan will accept her apology.
Too funny including the part about the other people Alex was kissing at the bait shop. LOL.

Sheesh ORy I forget to check my email for two days and you've updated twice. I love both chapters. This AU Ryan and Taylor relationship is so much fun. They like each other but at the same time hate each other. Or well they don't really hate each other anymore. Their banter is fun.
Can't wait for more. and BTW thanks for the help with the Game. I'm almost done with the chapter.
| XWaltzforVenusX 8/24/08 . chapter 12
Aww, poor dumped Ryan. But I LOVES smug Ryan... And hurt Ryan. I just love Ryan in general. But yes, Taylor had better fix things. Seriously.
p.s. - (shiny)

Oh, you're totally and completely terrible lol. I was laughing my ass off at Taylor's reaction to the kiss and really enjoying Ryan's bravado when you had to go and mention that ho bag, Marissa. Talk about a downer :D Didn't take Taylor long to come to her senses though, so let's see what Ryan does to punish her. That sounded dirty, didn't it?
