Years have passed since Edward left Bella in the forest. She's finally worked through her heartbreak but has never moved on to another man. She treats her best friend, Jake, like a beloved pair of old jeans. Jake is not happy with this situation. When he takes matters into his own hands, Bella's resulting epiphany makes her realize she needs to learn how to seduce a werewolf.


I looked across the room in shock. My beautiful Jacob was smiling down into the eyes of that witch! He was giving MY smile to somebody else. MY smile! His hand was on her arm. How dare he?

Banner made by the lovely my hubby is no edward


What happens when an engaged Bella meets up with her drunken one-night stand at a baseball game after she never thought she'd never see him again? Will she be able to put the past behind her, or will she be lured back into her lust for the sexy and mysterious Jacob Black? For Bella, this is a story about having to examine her life, her actions, and her heart to determine if her future is as clear as she once thought. This is a story about unfaithfulness, commitment, and betrayal. Betrayal can come in many forms, forcing our female lead to realize that she isn't the only one capable of keeping a secret.  AH, OOC, Bella/Jacob, Bella/Edward.

Phased by restlessxpen Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 573]


 "Don't forget me, Bella. I can't forget you."


Why couldn't she say that she wanted me?

I wished she'd say something other than just my name.

I needed to hear her tell me that she wanted me. 

I wanted to hear her tell me that she loved me. Just once.

Even if it was only in a dream. Even if it'd never really mean anything.

I didn't want to be a wolf. I didn't want to imprint.

I just wanted to be Jacob, and I wanted Bella Swan to be mine.

The edges of my dream began to blur.

Everything felt so indistinct, the quality of Bella,

of my feelings and her touch, going bland and unimpressive.

Even in my dream world, I couldn't touch her.

I couldn't be with her.

"Jacob," Bella called my name.

"I love you." It was Renesmee's voice.



Driven away from his home by the sight of a wedding invitation,

Jacob Black has fled far from the boundaries of La Push to the sandy beaches of Florida—miles away from Bella Swan and the pain of his past. Cutting himself off from his old life, Jacob has become a new man, and he has also, consequently, lost the ability to phase.

Regardless of his own sacrifices, Jacob has found peace and a new life

outside of Bella, and spends his days carelessly free in the heat of the sun.

That is until a new and unusual presence stirs up the ghosts of his past and reawakens something inside of Jacob that he had hoped would lie dormant forever:

The Wedding banner

Thank you MegsD for the beautiful banner!

Jacob Black is getting married. As he's waiting anxiously for his bride to join him, he remembers some of the key moments of their relationship. Join Jacob as he reminisces about the good times and the bad: when Nessie was first born, how he watched over her as a little girl, what they went through when she matured and suddenly everything changed, falling in love, jealousy, misunderstandings, dealing with the reactions of family and friends, asking the big question, and so much more.

I’d given her up.

I was done. That was it. I couldn’t take any more.

We’d played this game several times before, but I figured I had seen the end.

I thought by now she’d have the decency to cut me off,

because we both knew, too well, that I wouldn’t be the one to do it.

I can only be the shoulder for so long

when she persists to run back to that creep that keeps breaking her heart.

Oh well. Not my problem.

Even though she’s turned up again.

Even though she’s sleeping in my bed,and I’m stuck here on the couch again.

I can ignore the dreams and the desire, okay?

This is the last time.


            Jacob Black has done the best to pick up the pieces that Bella Swan left him with and move on. He has a steady job, his own place, and no one to rely on him but himself. Though he might be dogged by persistent memories, he’s content.

            That is until the day he sees her face on the television screen, right next to the man she left him for: Edward Cullen. Though it’s the last thing he wants to admit, Jacob knows there’s no way he can compete. Edward’s a senator now—wealthy, charming, prestigious: everything that Jacob believes he’s not. Though he knows every perfect marriage holds its own dark secrets, Jacob feels that he’s fighting a lost battle, and he’s about ready to call it quits.

            But can he break it off so easily when Bella Cullen shows up at his doorstep again?

 This is a Bella&Jacob fic.

A Jacob and Bella romance.

...“I never really wanted Edward. Not really. I know that now. If I have to choose between him, and you, then without hesitation, I choose you.”


This picks up right where New Moon left off.  Rated NC-17 for later chapters.  Stephanie Meyer owns and originated these extremely compelling characters.  I'm not making a dime from this.
