Why I love it: First off, it’s an adorable story, I couldn’t help but laugh as I read through-out the two kids growing up. And I know that isn’t what you want to hear at first for an M-rated story, but hang in there and trust me on this one!! Their witty banter back and forth is hilarious, and the name-calling is what killed me in the beginning! It’s totally worth it! I love that this story has a little something for everyone – romance and drama with a little bit of funny on the side. Oh, and just wait until you get to the lemons!

Why I love it: I love when any version of Bella has guts and balls, it is such a nice comparison to the Bella we are all used to reading about, meek and fragile. This Bella is on-the-go and living it up in her world of fashion and media. When everything seems to be going perfect for her is right when the rug gets pulled out from her. It has a few tear-jerker moments in it, but it's worth reading it to get through all of that for the good stuff! It fun to watch her adapt to her new life and the new characters that come into the fold as the story pans out!
