Wow!! I re-read this one in just few hours, its past 4 in the morning. It sure kept me engrossed! I forgot half the events that happened. I got so mesmerised by it all over again. It gave me heart ache when the story skipped 5 years. Developments that followed teared me up. Especially Edwards back story. Good thing I read it at night otherwise I wouldn't have been able to feel it fully.
It's a lovely story, I liked roughward too at the beginning. What turn of events, you sure know how to keep your readers wanting, begging for more!
I'm surely looking forward to how further events unfold.

Wow, this was a gut-wrenching read. Powerfully agonizing, in a good way. A very good way. I must have come across a rec for FYW in one of the fics I recently read, because I came in search for it. I'm so glad I did. Your writing is captivating and I found I just couldn't put it down until I was done. Now at the end, I am craving more.I know this story is years old, but I have to ask if you are well and truly done with Roughy and Isabella. Might there be more? Hopeful, but not optimistic. I enjoyed what you shared. Thank you for enthralling me with your words.

The Haymount sounds so fancy and familiar. Like, The Citadel where Edward lives, The Westin where Bella worked and now The Haymount, where they both enjoy food....Strange yet not.
We have some major progress here, they have moved beyond the general talking and now have actual sentences to say to each other, or is it questions seeking answers?
-looks for the next button-
Date: 19 Sep 2014 6:57 PM Title: Chapter 20
And there we have it....the reason for all of Edward's fuckedupwardness.
Josie is not biologically his.....so Jane was a dirty whore who led Edward to believe that Josie was his right from the get go?? No wonder Edward is suffering. I cannot imagine the pain he must be in from that betrayal which essentially broke him.
Bella's issues stem from neglect growing up, and living and dealing with the continued rejection from Renee. I'm sure watching the Graham's interact was foreign to her since she never really experienced anything like that with her own family.
I'm kind of reluctant to move onto the next chapter, primarily because there's no more 'next' button to click on and I'll be left in limbo, guessing.....Oh the drama LOL.
Date: 19 Sep 2014 6:22 PM Title: Chapter 19
Renee is awful, what the fuck is wrong with her and why the fuck does Bella continue to torment herself with such disappointment is beyond me!
Her relationship with Edward is tenuous and so fragile.
Jane, Josie, shit how old is Edward?
Date: 19 Sep 2014 9:54 AM Title: Chapter 15
Bella just had to awaken the monster within....tsk tsk. She doesn't even know the story and she's just throwing shit out there waiting for a reaction, which she got and clearly didn't like. If she wanted an out she should have just told him her piece whilst they were still in the lobby.
Poor Edward, clearly needs to go back to therapy.
Paul seems like a good companion for Edward, he needs to spend some time with him though.
Date: 19 Sep 2014 9:36 AM Title: Chapter 14
This was definite progress.
But that was a shit show of an explanation of his actions towards her. The callousness of his words and the harsh delivery, shit was raw.
I'd venture he will be back, since there clearly is no closure YET.
Date: 19 Sep 2014 9:20 AM Title: Chapter 13
How rude! He could have at least closed the door like a civilized person, sheesh!
I don't get why Edward came back again....Could he have not done it via a letter, email, text, voicemail, singing bear, strip-o-gram, something other than himself physically being on her doorstep, in her driveway, invading her personal space. That right there just aint cool!
I get why Edward is feeling repentent for his past sins, but really now it has been a long ass time, 5 years long, surely there has to be some closure, right?
Bella is so not over this shit no matter how much she tries to convince herself. And Edward done called her ass out on it.
Date: 19 Sep 2014 8:47 AM Title: Chapter 12
Aw shit, 5 years later? That is a mighty long ass time!
Well, at least Bella was able to get herself sorted out with school and eventually graduated. I see the shit with her own family still lingers and haunts her. Such a shock to see that Edward is back and omfg @ the fact that Bella is still conditioned to snap into character upon hearing his voice. Now that's some fucked up sad shit right there! No matter what she has done so far is meaningless at this very moment.
Date: 19 Sep 2014 8:42 AM Title: Chapter 11
Poor Edward is beyond fucked up right now. How the hell are they going to have him arrested? That seems harsh. Alice needs to pull the stick out of her uptight ass already. And uh, is Edward also Linc? That threw me for a loop. What is the deal with this family and their fucked up secrets?
Date: 18 Sep 2014 10:29 PM Title: Chapter 9
I know the song, it makes me weep and I don't like the vulnerability it leaves me in after listening to it, sad songs no matter how beautiful always do that to me....sigh.
This sheds some light on the fuckedupness of Edward, for the life of me though I want to know the details.....
I got to say though, the phone call whilst sexing, was seriously a turn on, the whole adrenaline rush of getting caught etc.
Bella has so many demons of her own that need addressing. Especially that shit with Charlie, and why she bothers to put herself in situations that hurt I don't understand her thinking.
I think it's time for a break....
Date: 18 Sep 2014 10:19 PM Title: Chapter 8
Well at least you got yours Bella, that's something I guess towards progress, right?
I think you've had an epiphany on how to manage or in your case compartmentalize your routine so that you can survive.
I wonder what happened to Edward to seek Bella out at 3am.....so outside of the 'norm' for him and his set schedule....
Date: 18 Sep 2014 9:58 PM Title: Chapter 7
I knew it was Jasper! LOL
But Bella didn't, LOL
I'm wondering if Edward was married with a daughter and something happened to them? So many theories are running through my head right now, it's so hard to keep up. I'm worried for Bella's mental health at this point, shit must be blowing her head up like whoa. Edward seems to be big on humiliation of Bella, or is it something more sinister? Like he hates women? So if I stick with that theory, then his wife or whatever she was must have cheated? The girl isn't his? AAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHH.
Breathe.....then click next....
Date: 18 Sep 2014 9:36 PM Title: Chapter 6
Aw Alice needs a punch in the face!
Positions, positions, my my my what a choice we have here!
I must say, Edward never keeps shit conventional by any standards!
Extremely awkward for Bella if that is Edward, but I'm going to assume that it's not and it's actually Jasper.....
Date: 18 Sep 2014 9:13 PM Title: Chapter 5
Well as fucked up as this situation was and how Bella got herself snatched up out the blue by Edward the actual deed was seriously intense and of course hot as always!
I needed a cigarette after last chapter and now I need another!
Bella Bella Bella, do not try to analyze the photo chica, it will leave you even more confused that when this whole 'arrangement' began! Just go with the flow for as long as you can stand it before you feel the need to take a leap of something high.
What's up Alice' ass? She seemed to vibing some anti friendly vibes towards Bella.
Date: 18 Sep 2014 8:51 PM Title: Chapter 4
Edward, how the fuck can you not let her come on your cock after everything she went through to get to this point? Muy estupido! And you were the one saying not to catch feelings n shit, boy you done caught feelings didn't you! Just from one bang! Oh how karma works!
Bella....Charlie and Renee are fucked in the head by the sounds of things and need to be taken out back and shot! ay ay ay. Both of you need therapy or to fuck it all out -shrugs- whatever works best, right?
Date: 18 Sep 2014 5:57 PM Title: Chapter 3
Oh that's old school - face down ass up - come on yall know that jam, right?
Wel, I'd say it's safe to assume that they have made shit officially, bumped on it n shit.
Edward Cullen, just wow, he's a piece of work!
Bella....always finding herself in some fucked up situations!
Date: 02 Aug 2013 6:18 PM Title: Chapter 22
Well...I think I've been waiting for like...over a year? I bookmarked this so I could come back when you insisted the Tory? Why is it taking soooooooooo long? I started this when it wa till on ff. I was devastated when they bloked you...found you here and the rest is (a very long) history...I f-ing love this story from its beginning to oe (although I'm starting to get fed up with Bella's ' I don't know how I feel')...think TVD's and Elena's constant waffling. Gah. Enough with the angst and 'waffling'! Does she or doesn't she. Get to it!,
PLEASE...enough already...please get these two very damaged souls together so they can be "perfectly imperfect together".
I do love this story...cannot fathom why people would go ape-shit! I KNEW from the start this was headed in an incredible (god) direction...plus "freedom of speech" and all that
you go, girl!

A couple years ago I began to read this story. However I ended up forgetting the name of this story. A few days ago I stumbled upon it again and was excited that there were chapters I had not read yet. I know that you haven't written anything for this story in quite awhile. However, I hope you have it within you to come back and continue on with this story. You are a great writer and I seriously want to know how things will turn out for these two characters.
-A long time fan :)
Date: 10 Mar 2013 6:18 PM Title: Chapter 22
Well it's about time she tries to make an effort. Edward has tried so hard over the past few months. Bella needs to go and see a therapist, she has way too much baggage and has been carrying it around since she was very young. She really doesn't know how to deal with emotions. Even if she hadn't entered into the arrangement with Edward she would have struggled with a normal relationship. She just used to tie it down with working so hard and being so tired with school and work. Once she figures that out then she will start to move forward. What a pair these two are, both too fucked up for their own good. Thks for the updates, Debbie

Bella and Edward seem to be sparring as to which has the most miserable life. Neither makes their needs known, and Bella looks for guidance from the strange behaviors of Edward and Renee. Great role models they are not
Date: 06 Mar 2013 10:19 AM Title: Chapter 22
The bomb is certainly ticking in Bella...how long before Edward finds out about her LOVELY parents...and how long before Bella goes off the deep end? Love how Bella is slowly letting Edward in and in need of his friendship..she needs to cling to him and maybe both of them will have a chance!!! Awesome chapter...please keep them coming!!! xo
Date: 06 Mar 2013 10:01 AM Title: Chapter 22
I want to envelope both of them in a huge hug.
My heart goes out for Bella. Nobodys beloved daughter. Nobodys wife... Such a lonely life. Edward and Bella can complete the holes in each others lives if they can just take a leap. Bella must make the first step.
I wonder if Edward remembers the same things Bella does, at least with the same longing? Is it only remorse he feels?
such a great story. Can not wait for more.
Date: 06 Mar 2013 8:41 AM Title: Chapter 22
Woww..amazing chapter and thanks for update! Many revelations ... I like Edward more open ... Bella just missing that step. I want to know more about them .. I want to make friends .. so I'm very eagerly awaiting the next chapter! ;) Thank you for this wonderful story! xoxo
Date: 02 Feb 2013 2:06 AM Title: Chapter 14
This writing covers so many important points from a side not heard. Except for Renee's explanation. Some of Edward's actions as he explains is getting past Bella's defensive barriers and she is just a little angry. Good for her!

Bella found a large elephant in the room at the Cullens. And surely Alice will share with Esme. Then Bella finds a bigger elephant in the supply closet. Knowing she enjoys the lack of reality when she is with Edward is healthy.
Date: 21 Jan 2013 7:43 PM Title: Chapter 19
This fic is so good, sorry I haven't reviewed so far but I just couldn't stop reading it. I'm all caught up now in two nights. Looking forward to how this plays out, will Bella get the therapy she needs or will she just keep trudging along. Hopefully by the time they end up back in bed together Edward will be able to stand her touching and kissing him. Thks for sharing, Debbie
