I truly believe that this story should have won first place. It was an incredibly beautiful story, yet disturbingly scandalous. It was also highly entertaining, and very, very well written.
There were so many things in this work that was so very wrong on so many levels. But I absolutely loved how you ended the piece. It was a tough journey for them both especially her, and I really loved how in the end she walked away with her dignity, well I should say what was left of her dignity and held her head high.
I really really enjoyed this. I also loved that fact that while it was steamy and had some colorful language, it was kept mostly clean, and that's the difference between "juvenile & trashy" and well executed work.
And this story was very well executed on all fronts. ***Applause***

WOW, what an amazing OS, congratulations. Edward was a manipulative prick, a real sinner.
Thank you for sharing your talented words with us.

Edward was kinda gross here, incredibly deviant and clearly knowing exactly what he was doing. Very forbidden indeed.

Edward was an asshole for using biblical verses to get to Bella. Great shot and Jacob is a truely wonderful man I would not have fault him if he left her but damn!

Wow! I wasn't sure what to think about the story at first when it started off with such a bang ...lol...but I soon found myself engrossed in the story. It's quite a twisted story. I haven't read your other works so far, so I'm not sure if you're normally a non-canon writer but I did develop a soft spot for poor Jacob and respected Bella's choice to walk away from Edward at the end. I truly think Edward loved Bella, in his own twisted way, but heck so many characters in the story were twisted. The most endearing and loyal person in the story ended up being Jacob! lol Anyhoo...thanks for a great and memorable story! I'll be sure to check out your other stories! :-)

Really liked this . I just wish Edward wasn't the coward he turned out to be. If he truly loved Bella he could have never left her to face the disgrace he helped cause.

WOW! This was by far one of the most scandalous of the entries that I've read so far.
What can I say?! For starters: Hated Pastorward in this one (despite the fuckhawt sexy times). It seems as though he severely abused his position in the church to manipulate and use Bella. She was just too young, ignorant, and inexperienced to see through his lies and the smooth ways that he twisted the scriptures to suit his debased desires. It's obvious that he didn't really care for her. Too bad that SHE was the one shunned for the affair, and that he (and his wife-because, let's face it, she acted like she knew what was going on with the way she treated Bella) got off seemingly scot free. But on the positive, I am so glad that Bella had Jacob. He was definitely a keeper if he stood by her through the exile. Glad that little Anna was his. And even more glad that Bella was strong enough to be able to walk away from him in the end.
Original plot. Well written. Good luck in the contest!
