Summary: “COMPLETE. Preternaturally irresistible, devastatingly charming Edward Cullen seems to have some strange power over the females in Forks…and Bella is scared she might know just what it is.M for language & naughty fun. Part mystery, part drama, all Edward.”

This story begins with a rather different Edward Cullen than we are used to seeing. He is the boy that no one notices at Forks High School. Bella Swan knows he exists, but that’s about the extent of their relationship besides being partners in class. He is a nobody, a nerd with thick glasses and a bowl hair cut that none of the girls gave a second thought about.

Until a few months later...

Edward comes back a completely changed man. Bella, however, is not sure that he is a man at all.

The girls do a lot more than notice him now. He seems to have every girl under his spell and Bella is determined to figure out this “new” Edward. She wants to know what happened to him and what gave him this apparent new power he now possesses and holds over women. She is also desperate to figure out why he treats her differently from every other girl.

I absolutely adored this story. It’s different, quirky, mysterious and has a very clever plot and twist.

You know that feeling when you just happen to stumble upon a great story, that’s totally unlike anything else you’ve read, yeah this is one of those stories.

This story is more of an experience than a good read. It plays like a movie in your head with the author’s vivid imagery created by her intense and poetic descriptions.

Her explanation of the world she has created is amazing and vivid, but the real bread and butter lies within her Edward Cullen. Her description of Edward, alone, will draw you in, hook, line and sinker. She doesn’t just describe Edward Cullen, her words bring him to life making him jump off your computer screen and you swear you can actual experience everyone one of the authors teasing keystrokes physically.

There are too many good quotes in this story, her descriptions are mesmerizing and inspiring. One that struck a chord was when she described Edward talking. She said it was as if he was, “...shifting from word to word like he was bowing a cello rather than speaking.”
The picture she paints is beyond superb, but here is a little taste. A description of the new Edward Cullen;

“When women looked at him now, they didn't just see Edward Cullen...They imagined how that tongue would feel in their mouth, teasing and rolling and tasting. In gym, they saw the hard slates of his stomach rippling seismically as he tugged the hem of his t-shirt up to wipe sweat of his forehead and the protruding 'v' of his pelvic bone as his shorts rode low. They imagined how that hard stomach would feel against their hand and imagined the simultaneous pleasure and pain of those hipbones sliding against their own...”
I highly recommend this story especially for all Edward Cullen lovers, but be careful, this Edward will cast his spell on you and so will the author.
