This one was very interesting. With the transplant and the way they met. The smiles over coffee and then finally speaking at the hospital. The instant magnetism and her trying to fight it. Her staying faithful, all the while James is cheating. I'm a little surprised she didn't know he was. I'm just glad that his death helped Alice. I'm glad it paved the way for Bella to be freed from a marriage that meant nothing to her husband. I'm glad that Edward and Bella found their way to each other in the end.

This reminds me of the song Falling in Love at A Coffee Shop by Landon Piggs... Amazing work.

Sweet and beautiful. Could (should?) have been longer... But still somehow absolutely perfect :)

awesome story...fate, karma, the universe taking care of what needs to be taken care of-a bit like taking out the trash...
a loveless marriage, a lonely life, denying herself of a well deserved life, finding out that her husband has been cheating for god knows how long. out of every bad, traumatic situation, some good will always come. from Jame's death Alice was given a life saving kidney, Bella was freed from dismal life and in the end James and Victoria will get to spend all eternity with the other...
love to read a happy ever between Edward and Bella.

Oh. Em. Gee. Sarita said that this o/s need to be read and it certainly does! It is wonderful. Love how you capture each emotion that Edward and Bella have about one another and everyone else they come in contact with. It is the kind of story that makes you think that there is someone out there that is just perfect for you and you might just not be married to them. It also reflects karma in what goes around comes around in the most fascinating of ways...speaking her mainly of James and Victoria. But how in the yucky situation, good came from it. Alice's life is saved. Bella is released from her marriage/prison of 7 years and finds happiness with Edward. Really one could say that with James' death, Bella's life finally begun.
Loved this one shot! It was fabulous!

Thank you for making James the loveless husband instead of Jacob!
I like Alice & Edward being twins :)
Organ donation is an amazing thing... it saves so many lives, but for every life saved another is lost... It's heartbreaking & wonderful all at the same time...
I knew James was a cheating SOB... well, at least Victoria died with him this time & isn't gonna come after Bella for revenge, LOL!
"a pair of deep brown eyes, red rimmed and puffy." -Careful what you wish for, Edward... it may just come true!
Bella's guilt for not being completely devastated over losing James should dissipate pretty quickly when she finds out he was with another women! LOL!
I'm so glad that Charlie & Renee are there to comfort Bella through this crap... I wonder how guilty they will feel now that they know James was a no goo dirty rotten cheater who threw away their daughters love & broke her heart!
I'm glad Bella told her parents off, but it was also her fault for staying in a marriage she knew wasn't working... they may have got her into it, but she is the one who stayed...
*She snorts, "I don't really have anything to feel 'all right' about."
"Not really." I shrug.* -Edwards reply doesn't make since to me...
*I wish I knew more of what to say to here, to comfort her.* -you need to change 'here' to 'her' or just completely drop the 'to here' part... it also needs to be changed in your story description...
I wish Bella could let her guilt go... I was hoping that finding out what a creep her husband really was would help her get over it faster, but I also can understand and relate to how she is feeling at the same time...
"that even with James' fault of infidelity, that they know that he still loved me, that we all make mistakes." -I just wanna smack around the Swans! How could they be so stupidly defending there poor judge of character in James! Now I am really glad that Bella told them off, but really sad that they still didn't get it!
I really like Ro & B as friends... I hated the animosity that SM placed between the two... this is sooo much better :)
"You should feel guilty for cheating yourself from the life that you could have, the love that you deserve." -Ro's got it right! I knew I liked that girl ;)
*"What the hell do you care?" she yells."Because I can."* -Maybe say 'WHY the hell do you care?', instead of WHAT... then Edwards answer will make more sense...
*My reach my hand out.* Replace 'My' with 'I'
"Don't tell Emmett that." -tee hee hee!
"B, I've told you before, you give love but you don't know how to let someone love you." -I like how Ro just says it like it is!
A HEA lemon, is always the best way to end a one-shot ;)
I really liked the story idea but I think you need a Beta to give it a good run through & fix it up a bit & you'll be golden :)

I actually found this story on Twitter through SaritaDreaming. For someone who finds writing angst to be hard, I think you did a really good job. Personally, I found the angst level to be just right for me (I guess having the angst at the beginning/middle of the story, with a good ending kept the angst level right for me). Rose in your story is awesome! Some of the things she say are just... gah, I don't know how to describe it.
I can't help but to notice that this is not marked as complete. So will there be more to this story, or is this it (just wanted to check because if there is more, I'll try to remember to keep an eye out)? Thanks for sharing this awesome story!

I really, really enjoyed this story! It would have made a f-awesome multichapter if you stretched it out, but it was done well as a O/S, too. I didn't feel it was rushed, and it's good that Bella got her shit together before she found Edward. Nice job, bb!

Loved it, Its sad what B went through, but it gave her E in the long run. I think it was worth it.
