Summary: Bella's a freshman at Dartmouth who lives with 5 upperclassmen, including broody Edward, a vegetarian with a fixation on vampires. Plot line similar to the original Twi novel w/o the cockblocking and with more laughs. LEMONS, AH, canon pairings, BPOV.

If you are looking for a story that mixes all the best parts of Edward...sweet, protective, and sexy as all get out...and adds in a touch of jerkward and angst, you would get Housemating Season by AngryBadgerGirl. In the story, we start off with Bella embarking on an adventure when she is accepted at Dartmouth. Bella is clumsy and well, you can't help but laugh at how she always manages to trip and fall at just the wrong time. She has been assigned housing where she lives with upperclassmen. Rosalie, the fashion model, Emmett, the star football player, Jasper the good ole southern boy, Alice the artist, and then there's Edward...the vegetarian, vampire loving enigma.

Bella and Edward's first meeting follows a softball to the head and Edward of course comes to Bella's rescue. The attraction they both feel for the other is immediate, but complications arise. Enter Jerkward but our Bella doesn't take his nastiness lying down. Nope, this Bella is feisty and speaks her mind, often speaking without thinking, which just makes you fall in love with her more. If you love your Bella's with some spunk, you have picked the right story. Assward...Wank Stain...Anal Wart...these are just a few of the choice names Bella has given to Edward when he's being totally clueless.

The relationship that develops between Edward and Bella is just as sweet and tender as it is passionate and hot. Between sneaking into bedrooms through open windows, amazing first dates, and Edward
calling her Bella sweetness, you'll fall as much in love with Edward as Bella does. It's impossible not to. With lines like this, you can see how AngryBadgerGirl has captured all the overwhelming emotions you feel when you first fall in love.

"But it's not just your face Bella, it's your mannerisms, your demeanor, the way you can look like angel and a bombshell both at the same time," he says, his smoldering green eyes flashing with intensity as he speaks. "I've never been so completely captivated by someone before, and I don't think I ever will again."

It's not all sunshine and roses though. There are some ups and downs as they each learn and grow both as individuals and as a couple. Edward has issues, a multitude of them, but Bella doesn't let that deter her from what she wants, and she wants Edward. There is some angst and Jerkward acts like...well a jerk, but Bella sets him straight in a way that will make you smile...just make sure you can take a cold shower afterward!

Housemating Season by AngryBadgerGirl should be on everyone's list of must read's. The story has it all and you'll run the gamut of emotions from start to finish. You'll laugh, you'll cheer, you'll cry, and you'll have to fan yourself from time to time. By the time you reach the last sentence, you will have read a great, great story! Give this one a read, you won't be sorry!
