Awww nice, but I feel bad for Jane. I am glad as well that Bella was kind of hesitant to get stuck in, but this chapter ended well.

Wooo hooo fantastic, well done Jane! Here I was thinking I was the only one that looks at my husbands FB page and DM's!

I wish she would not chase him, but ...
Anyway very good story I am enjoying it. Reading at work is always a great past time.
Thanks for writing.

I can't believe I haven't read this story. I have certainly heard about it maybe I was waiting for it to complete? Who knows, anyway I have just read the 1st 2 chapters and I am liking Bella so far, and of course Edward is mysterious which is lovely.
So thankfully I have found it and I will be saving it to read.

Well, for now at least, she thinks she's happy.
There were times in this story when I didn't like Edward at all, and times when I really liked him and rooted for him to get better. You did a really great job of capturing that "honeymoon period" of his controlling/abusive cycle to the point that I felt it too. Except I knew it wouldn't last.
There are other fics about unhealthy relationships and love, only it's as if they don't know it's unhealthy. The writers and readers pretend the relationship is healthy or that the happily ever after is indeed a HEA. But yours, while the characters lie and the narrator is unreliable, it doesn't pretend to be healthy. It is very honest in its unhealthiness and unhappiness. Bella goes back to her addiction as so many people do in reality, and there is no promise or even implication that their relationship will be better this time around. The cycle continues.
Congratulations on finishing. You can say whatever you want about your writing, but I think you're a great writer. And as far as what you say in your AN, all writers have a lot to learn. Once they have nothing more to learn (or think they don't) they're not writers any longer. (Or not good ones anyway.)
I think there are a few things that could've been explored a little more, like Carlisle's motivations and Emmett's. Because we're dealing with an unreliable narrator and because Edward is not trustworthy, it would be nice to have been shown the motivations, I think. I don't understand why Carlisle was so adamant about Jane being better for Edward. Was it just because Edward seemed happier? Maybe Jane was better for Edward in the same sense that Jake would've been better for Bella. As far as I know, Edward never treated Jane as badly as he treated Bella (not while in a relationship with her, anyway), and obviously Jake didn't treat Bella the way Edward did. The problem is, Edward and Bella just didn't have the right feelings for the other two. It sure would be nice sometimes to be able to choose the person we love.
Anyway, this is getting so long. I thought your characters were compelling, even while not always likable. Your descriptions were great and not intrusive. I could see the action easily. I never felt like the characters were just hanging out in blank space. There was atmosphere.
Thank you for writing through to the end even though at times you felt discouraged. Congratulations for completing. That, in itself, is a huge accomplishment. This is a big, complicated story. Maybe not easy to read, but certainly harder to write.

"Then again, sanity has its shortcomings." - I love this line.
I want to believe, like Bella, that things will be much better now, but I don't. I like the way you've subtly woven themes from twilight such as the heroin addiction and Edward's controlling behavior for Bella's own good, and turned them human. They're not as romantic or understandable coming from a human (the controlling behavior.)

I wouldn't doubt that Jake loves her, thought it could've been old feelings from back when he wrote the song. Feelings that have faded from love to friendship.
Okay, it's time for sleep. I don't have anything interesting to say. I'll finish this tomorrow. yay!
