We also decided to share with each entry our reviews as a way of saying thanks…

Barracuda – Boydblog

EclipsedbyJacob said: I liked Bella’s inner struggle over the age difference. For a first time cougar, pseudo-self be damned, it would be difficult to take that leap. The whole cigarette rant was tied in nicely, but I just really dig the song choice. Who doesn’t love this song? And oh my hell, how well does it fit into our little revolution??

TwiliteAddict said: This was definitely a cougar fantasy night! As a drug education officer, I have to say that was the sexiest no smoking PSA ever!! Of course, living through the 80’s, I’m a big Heart fan and even saw them in concert, so I loved the song and the playfulness of this Bella – hell, life don’t end in the cougar years – it’s just getting interesting – and that was portrayed well in this story.

RosaBella75 said: Great fun and Holy Tingles!! Loved the parting line and the complete intro to the…meat of the story. Definitely leaves me wanting to see the next three weeks – and amazingly, more than just the steamy parts! LOL

Adore the no smoking PSA! Talk about frying his little brain with a hormone surge!! MWHAHAHA! Truly inspired bit! Whoo, just about melted my screen! And then that kiss and grind… oh, so delicious and Gnghh! Sucked me in every time. Then when he talked about the first time…then all night. That GOT me! :D Excellent well rounded story, created a really complete AU that had us all panting to be Bella! So glad you shared it!

Batteries Not Included – MizzezPattinson

EclipsedbyJacob said: I want to award extra points just for using the term lady bits, as it was one of the criteria for judging, even if you didn’t know it! Love to see that Edward is struggling with his feelings for her, too, and to see the real claws come out in this one. Bella takes control once they’re back in the suite and it was the kind of lemon I was looking for! I would have liked a mention of the name of the fic at the end, because it’s very clever, but the rabbit mentions in correlation to the Energizer bunny shout out left me with a smile. After all, what would a thirty-something cougar be without the trusty rabbit?

TwiliteAddict said: Loved the UST in this one shot. Makes the ending that much better! And the best line: “Thank God I wax that shit”.

RosaBella75 said: ROCKIN’ Lemon! I found this to be a great read and while it had me panting and squirming with Bella, I never really felt that she was anything but a typical aged Bella. I had trouble imagining her as any older than Edward.

Great giggles, adored the use of the rabbit (like EBJ says) and the Energizer bunny. Excellent use of canon in having them sleep together platonically all that time. “Mr. Details” and the reference to her inner goddess just before that had me laughing.

I was very conflicted by this fic. Maybe it’s that I’m just so used to young Bella’s cursing constantly. I don’t know. Gets my personal award for “She has the job I wish I did!” Nice complete story that left me wanting more.

Here Kitty – CandyTwi

EclipsedbyJacob said: First of all, the last line is great! I liked that Bella was a self-proclaimed cougar, out on the prowl, that none of this was new for her. Except the way Edward made her lady bits stand at attention and her mind cloud over…I liked that the affect was obvious and complete. This was a quick and fun read. I enjoyed it a lot!

TwiliteAddict said: It was at first a challenge to get over the strong, shallow Bella – but we eventually see what is beneath that shiny veneer – vulnerability. I like that Edward didn’t have any pretenses – he was just a fresh, natural (albeit sexy) guy. Well written and original.

RosaBella75 said: Definitely a capital C Cougar! Excellent job of creating characters who left no doubt in my mind as to their ages. Loved the use of more than just one of the Twi-guys and that in the end there was more to her behavior than just lustiness with limited boundaries. Incredible sexual tension, causing an intense heat which left me wanting much, much, more.

In the Light of Day – Tkegl

EclipsedbyJacob said: Best line ever : “It was the Walk of I-Got-Three-Orgasms-Last-Night-Motherfuckers.” What I loved about this story was the easy flow between the initial encounter clear through to the end. I was riveted from the beginning and would love to see this as a multi-chapter fic. The writing was excellent. Kudos!

TwilieAddict said: This story sucked me right in with hot action from the get-go! Bella felt realistic to me and Edward, oh, so cool and alluring. And the lemons (emphasis on the ‘s’) – very hot!! I also liked that Bella agreed to take a chance with Edward. The happy ending I always crave.

RosaBella75 said: I could read this story over and over again and never tire of it! From the first paragraph it sucked me in and I reveled in its embrace to the final (hilarious) line. My first thought when I finished was to wonder which of the big name Fic writers had entered our contest, it was so well written.

Still laughing at her reaction to him entering the conference room and her very apt name for him: “Mr. Triple-Orgasm” --loved it!

You created a very believable mature Bella, while creating a believable young Edward who was still all man enough to attract a mature, self confident woman and keep her fully engaged both physically and mentally. Talk about a home run fic that has me praying you have more planned and eager to read more from you now that I know where to find you!

No More Stay Puft Marshmallow Man – ObsessedMom

TwiliteAddict said: It was so refreshing to read about another Twi character – Jessica. She was truly the cougar on the prowl we would imagine her to be – confident on the outside, yet somewhat unsure on the inside. I was glad she got her ‘happy ending’ – other than in the shower (lol). Favorite line: absolutely gorgeous, smart, a fine dancer, and a gentleman! Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!

RosaBella75 said: Bravo on the use of Jessica. I felt by using her you were able to have the protagonist behave in ways we would have found unacceptable from Bella while making her someone I cared about deeply. Your Jake was everything I love about him mentally, and totally stacked to boot! Thank-you for the images ingrained in my brain from the weight room, btw! :D

This was a fabulous read, with excellent dialogue, imagery, flow and story line. Your characters truly lived and breathed with lives I found complete and completely believable. She was a deliciously take charge woman and he was most definitely a tasty young thing in all the desirable ways. I was just sad our word limit got in the way of a longer lemon! ;D This fic really didn’t get the attention it deserved!

To Love Again – EurekaTwilighter-gopher4953

EclipsedbyJacob said: Aside from the mention of Kellan’s name halfway through, I liked the way this one moved. The flashback was just enough to give me inside into the relationship and leave me thirsting for more. I have to call the cheese over Annie insisting Emmett go to Monica…I don’t know if I’d be so open to losing my boyfriend into the arms of an ex. Though, it brought on the cougar goodness, so cheese is accepted! Overall, this was a good, quick read and related the full story with brilliance.

TwiliteAddict said: I like that the author was brave and introduced an original character. The back story to the lemons made them so sweet and satisfying. And I read something new: scrotum pinching – will have to ask the hubby if he wants to give that a go. See even cougars can learn new tricks!

RosaBella75 said: This story gets my personal pick “award” for emotional content. It is a very well written, evocative story that has me desperate for more of their journey together. For sheer personal preference this story would take second in the contest for sheer pleasure of reading (for me), but the gentle burn it evokes in me is sadly outshone by two of the other entries. This Emmett is just so wonderful, and Monica so sympathetic, I couldn’t help but fall deeply in love with them and their passionate love story.

Trust in Dreams – LoveLoveLove22

TwiliteAddict said: The line: “And that was the first night I dreamt of Edward Cullen,” was an excellent nod to Twilight! We all have a man of our dreams and I love the gift of a night time visit from him – one of life’s little pleasures. Thanks for that reminder! This o/s was a delightful tease of dreams that we can imagine come true in the end.

RosaBella75 said: I’d have loved to have seen how this fic would have done in the voting if it had been longer. It really felt like the author ran out of time and so ran with what they had (not altogether a bad thing,) but it left us too wanting, I think.

The dreams were an excellent (and scintillating!) link to canon. Your Edward was very desirable and Bella really felt conflicted, but the time progression paired with the dreams and subsequent meetings made her ultimate capitulation quite believable. Really hoping you continue this now that you are able to!

Thank you again to everyone who entered!

Urban Dictionary Definitions:

Cougar: (Noun) 1)An attractive woman in her 30's or 40's who is on the hunt once again. She may be found in the usual hunting grounds: nightclubs, bars, beaches, etc. She will not play the usual B.S. games that women in their early twenties participate in. End state, she will be going for the kill, just like you. Associated with milf (aka Sexy Mother). 2) Noun. A 35+ year old female who is on the "hunt" for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male. The cougar can frequently be seen in a padded bra, cleavage exposed, propped up against a swanky bar in San Francisco (or other cities)waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path. "Man is cougar's number one prey."

Millions of them. More famously, Demi and Ashton, Naomi Watts and Heath Ledger, Joan Collins and her hubby, Cameron and Justin, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins

Puma: Noun. 1)An attractive woman in her late 20s or early 30s. She is a pre-cougar. 2) A woman who is not quite old enough to be a cougar, but still likes to date/mate with younger men.

Dating a puma wasn't so bad, Bob reflected. After all, the sex was great and she never minded picking up the tab when they went out on the weekend.

Bob Cat: Noun. A hott girl between the ages of 25-35; 35-45 is a cougar.

Lime: A fan-fiction or chapter of a fan-fiction in which characters graphically fool around, but the sex is left more to the imagination of the reader or not fully depicted.

Lemon: A fan-work that depicts sexual acts. Often shortened to simply "Lemon", the term is actually derived from a hentai anime in 1984, "Cream Lemon", which told a story about a girl called Ami and her relationships. Since then "Lemon" has been used to refer to all sexually-oriented fan-works, in particular fan-fiction.
