If you have a problem with my review, talk to me. To insult me via Twitter is pretty childish.
I have no problem with your story, the subject, or your writing.
I have a problem with the fact, that people act as if Bella is evil just because they want to see E/L together - while ignoring who the bad guys really are.
Besides, how can a person ever, really, agree with cheating? I have no problem with cheating stories; if not some lame excuses are given to justify adultery. Cheating is never right, but sometimes I can understand it.
And, I would feel the same way if Leah was the wife in your story. I don’t change my moral views because of names.
I enjoy your story, nonetheless. If the writing is good, I don’t need to agree with all the decisions that the characters make. I just don’t like the hypocrisy. You can like the story, without having the need to romanticize the cheating.

Man, Bella's such a bitch.

Wow- when I first read the prompt for this, I wasn't expecting to get rewarded with such a sweet little love story, so thank you!
I am addicted to reading L/E stories because of you, and I can't wait to see how this one turns out!
You are a very talented writer.. thank you for this story, and for your words!

I learn so much from the people here.
1. It’s okay to cheat on your wife - even with her sister - but to ask your husband to move is a deadly sin!
2. Edward Cullen can do no wrong!
Bella is not particularly likeable - which I thought was a very calculating, easy way of making the adultery seem understandable, sorry - but no matter what she does, her actions will never be as cruel, selfish and destructive, as Leah's and Edward's are.
If Edward were your husband - Leah your sister - would you still think like you do now?
Bella is obviously to blame. She's so evil and deserves to be deceived by the two people she trusts the most.
And, Leah is so incredibly nice, okay, she is sleeping with her sister's husband, but Bella is so much worse! I mean - oh my God! - she did not tell Edward that they have to move. This bitch!
Bella is probably having an affair, too - that would justify Edward and Leah's cheating, of course, and would be a nice, easy way to solve the situation, no?
I am really shocked by the reviews here. I have a step-sister and I could never do such a thing - not for the love of my life -and not even for Edward Cullen. I could never build my happiness on the anguish of a family member.

I so badly want Leah and Edward to realize that their feelings for each other are mutual and I desperately want Edward to leave Bella. Her character is incredibly shallow and self-centered.
The fact that she would accept the promotion, or even allow herself to be considered for it, without discussing it and it's ramifications thoroughly with her husband first, clearly demonstrates how far down her priority list her marriage falls. It would seem that Edward has bent over backward for her for far too long, while she gives nothing in return.
I honestly hope he finds his balls and leaves her sorry self. He deserves so much better.

Maybe Bella does have some idea about the relationship between Edward and leah but she does nothing about beside work and spend time away from her husband...

I just want to hold Leah's hand.. it's so sad and mean that she needs to go through all this shit..
But.. I love the kiss scene.. and I'm sure what is coming next.
You're such a great writer.. I'm kind of jealous.
Can't wait for the next chapter.

Hi, its the first time i review this story and after finish this chap i read the reviews, I have to say that i'm surprised to see that all seems to look angry at Bella, when in this chapter i understand that Edward decided to go to Seattle because of Leah, and he wants to stay in Seattle because of her. I really think Edward has to be honest with himself, Bella and Leah, before start something that is going to hurt the three of them.
I like your story and i think you are doing an excellent work,( that i disagree with you characters's choices is another story).

I want to punch this Bella so much.

| vbfb1 12/14/11 . chapter 6
OMG i seriously hate this Bella. Nothing pisses me off more than one person in a relationship making major decisions without even consulting the other.
I don't know whether Bella suspects something is going on or not but even if she does she is partially to blame.
| Lorna jones 12/14/11 . chapter 6
