not to rub it in...but i *just* had In N Out yesterday...yes, i'm a lucky lucky gal.

first read your story over on FF, sooo stoked I found it here as well.  i've been sucked back in all over again.

the first chapters told from renee's pov and then young bella and ed are just delightful. i forgot how sassy bella gets as she matures.

my heart breaks for edward at this point and since my memory is hazy at best, i can't wait to finish this ride....



Author's Response:

Welcome back. I'm so fuckign stoked that people are coming back to read the story again. As far as the In N OUt burgers go, there are 3 restaurants within 5 miles radius from my house. It's the worst temptation ever when doing anything that requires I leave the safety of my house. LOL, I think you might have just taken that away. I'm glad you're taking the journey again and hopefully you'll catch something new you missed before. Thanks for reading.

Summary: Past Featured Story

Born to parents living a rich and glamorous lifestyle, Bella had never felt as if she belonged in their world where life often felt fake and pretentious. Wanting more out of life and wanting to make a worthwhile difference, Bella assumes a fake identity and heads off to spend her last summer before college doing something real and meaningful. Her journey starts with meeting a handsome stranger, raised to help those in need—and to detest the rich. What happens when he finds out her secret?

is it strange that "it's a small world after all..." is on repeat in my mind??

thank you for this story...

esme is a bit of an enigma to me and i'm hoping she gets more page time...



Author's Response:

Nope not strange at all. After all, who'd have thought that two people who had never met before, end up in the same place for the summer, who have this amazing chemistry between them, end up living in the same city. I'd say it's a small world, kharma, fate, whatever you want to call it.

Thanks for reading, chapter 6 will post tomorrow and then we can all see how Edward reacted to Bella's news.

loving cheeky edward!

there is a little voice in the back of my mind that's worried about bree and tanya...but i'm not convinced i should be...



Author's Response:

He is just a tad bit cheeky, isn't he. Love him though. I am glad you liked the "zero weirdness". I know Bella said it to Jake in the books and movies, but I couldn't resist using it here.

Thanks again for reading and reviewing.

Author's Response:

It's okay. Go ahead and laugh. I had a hard time keeping from giggling the whole time I was writing it. It really is ao very Bella.  I am so glad that my discriptions are so vivid to you. Sometimes it's hard to convey how something is when you have never been there or experienced it before.

yessssssss! started this over on FF and i'm stoked to have found it here.

i've been enjoying the realistic dark twisted desires found in this story. the pull toward being reckless, pushing boundaries, exploring fantasies.

i've been twisted up inside following our characters journies and trying to make sense of their feelings. Most of all, your story has made me turn inward and look at my own.

thank you for all



Author's Response:

Oh wow. Thank you for those very sincere words.  I love hearing stories of how my writing has affected others, so thank you.

Glad you're enjoying it...I can see the end in sight now, but obviously there is still some work for these characters to do to find their HEA.
