Why is it that I have a feeling that Edward "taking care of things" means a lot more than it sounds? And in walks Alice.
You have really kicked this story up severe notches in the suspense, drama...everything.
I'm totally swept up in this fic and loving every minute of it, cosmo!
You rock hard!
Looking forward to the next chapter - Whoot!

Uhh, no words.
I want this guy dead meat!
I want Bella saved and okay.
| Navarre chapter 14 . 12/11/2009
Beautiful, raw, honest...
But I must say his last comment to Bella before she drifted to sleep says that something is going to happen to test this new love of theirs.
As always, loved the chappie!

This was a wonderful chapter. I love Esme - she is Mother incarnate. Hell, I love the whole Cullen clan, what can I say. Lol!
My heart does go out to Bella. For a woman who has fought for everything she has - success, independence, individuality; and she possesses strength, determination, focus, perseverance, she is a wounded young woman and in some aspects she is still the shy, bashful, insecure young girl deep inside her heart and soul. Being around Esme certainly was overwhelming.
I loved hers and Rose's "sizing up" of the other. Nice touch.
I am curious as to what Edward and Carlisle were discussing.
Edward seems to have something hidden behind his eyes.
I am glad they finally admitted their feelings for each other, but something feels amiss here. Hope I'm wrong.
Anyway, wonderful chapter cosmo!

He is so sweet!

I love your story. The drinks, the perfume, Edward *sigh*
The tension is freakin awesome. I was ready to scream at the last chapter. When I get a chance I'll do chapter by chapter reviews.
So E took care of everything. And what is everything, exactly?
Very interesting. Saw you in UoEM thread and thought I'd check out your fic.

Just found this story (thanks to Rose and her blinkies *smiles*) and I LOVE IT! Recognize your name from the threads...You are a FANTASTIC writer...Can I just say I LOVE THIS EDWARD? After all the tortured darkwards I've been reading lately DARCYWARD is a GEM! He seems to have a secret but not dark or particularly heavy...I'm guessing he sits on the board of Finelys or even owns it outright with his family or something. Yeah, Bella will freak because SHE IS BELLA and instead of realizing hey, hot, loaded gorgeous man wants me and, oh, by the way, he's kinda my BOSS, but it's never had anything to do with my job thus far, and, yeah, that's kinda awkward, but, again, Hey, I get this hot, loaded, gorgeous man in my bed every night AND he makes me have multiple, earth shattering orgasms, so...WHO THE FUCK CARES? BUT, we know Bella and it will provide for a few tense moments...Sleeping her way to the top indeed...
Anyway, just had to post and offer my love. I love the romance, the sweetness and the lemons are fuckhot, Cosmogirl! Can't wait for the rest..I'm sure we haven't heard the last of James but Bella needing saved and Edward loving to save her...um...just makes me melt somehow...Thanks for the sweet respite from all the darkness everywhere else...I mean I live in the suburbs...After awhile on these stories, the mind just can't get around any more red rooms of pain, drunken forgotten meadows, drug overdoses, or mafia uncles trying to kill you (Altho, those stories OWN me...) and it's like a breath of fresh air to read about a boy, a girl, and falling in love over a cocktail...Perfect for you Cosmogirl...
Keep writing and I'll keep reading...
By the way, I'm bellalcullen on the threads...I know, So original...

It is 1:49 am and I am finally caught up! This is a great story! I keep waiting for something to be totally fucked up with Edward, like he is married or has a child and keeping it all from Bella. But, he just seems to be getting better and better. I love this story and can tell you that I found it from RoseArcadia on twilighted, so she is doing her job on getting your story out there!
Again, great job!

WOW! That was fuckin' HOT!
| lovinjim chapter 8 . 12/10/2009
Okay, so first of all I love this story...just found it tonight and had to stop reading to let you know this. I am amazed that you don't have more reviews than you do. I will be letting everyone know just how great this story is...
I know that sometimes writing can get discouraging...please don't give up, you have a real gift. Now, I have to go and finish reading!
| Navarre chapter 12 . 12/10/2009
Okay, I feelI am right about Mike. When he made that passing comment to Bella about not knowing she was involved with someone...WHY would he know. Obviously he is interested. And Edward was right about his summation of Mike. And Mike was trying to undermine Edward with that so-called defense of him.
Yeah...I smell "asshole" coming from Mike's direction.
And I am curious about James -the guy that was at Starbucks that approached Bella and watched her as she left.
You have a lot of things on the periphery, cosmo. Very interesting!
I'm really seeing just how terribly insecure Edward and Bella are. It's hard.
Now...here comes Mama Esme. *insert dramatic theme music* Lol.
| Navarre chapter 11 . 12/10/2009
Yes, I saw those pics, I love her black skirt and white shirt -that one IS fierce. And very classy! You picked some awesome threads for Bella, cosmo. :)
Also, you are really hitting your stride on the "lemon" department. Keep this up and YOU will be due for a promotion to President of All Things Citrus. Lol! ;)
I'm glad they are making head-way on the communication aspect of the relationship, but I will say that I agree with Edward on one thing, Mike was inappropriate in touching and leaving his hand on Bella. You do NOT conduct yourself like that with your subordinates. And men are not normally fools when it comes to seeing the intentions of other men.
I was surprised in Bella's lack of reaction to Mike's gesture. I would have thought she would have immediately withdrew her hand(yes, I know she admitted being uncomfortable, but HE withdrew at her reaction - NOT her.) I think Mike has other intentions, myself. And with Bella having to fight for her reputation, she needs to be VERY careful.
Again excellent chapter, cosmo.
Oh and I am over at the Twilighted Forum and have been to your thread.
| Navarre chapter 10 . 12/10/2009
Yes, I do understand. Bella has always had to prove herself at everything. School, as a person, her career. And when you have been on the defensive as long as she has, it is an automatic response. Especially when you have been accused of being something you are not. That's hard. It sucks.
See? Once I got my rant out in my other review, I can reason.
I'm not so narrow-minded as my review might have implied to you and where I still stand by how I saw it, I can better understand her and not be so unyielding. Lol.
Anyway, she has was problems on her plate now...
| Marvar chapter 16 . 12/10/2009
Beautifully written. My favorite part is when she is drifting in and out of consciousness. I also like the end when Bella gets a little action and Edward drops the f-bomb. I can't wait to read the next chapter. Yay, I get it first!
So who is doing the ass-grabbing? You, fic-wife? I'm assuming the position, now. Love you.
