Team Anything Goes Has A Very Merry Christmas

Team Anything Goes is Hopey aka manyafandom, Kathy aka MsKathy, and Steph aka purdueliz, who is unavailable this week.

A Very Merry Christmas Indeed


Jasper and Bella make the most of a Christmas at the Cullens'. AH

First and foremost this little one-shot is light and fluffly. There is no angst or drama, it's Fun! Okay, Edward and Alice are together in this fic, I kinda love it when Edward and Alice are together, but that's a whole other topic.

Bella is Alice's college roommate and BFF. Bella is going home to with her for Christmas, part of the reason is to see Jasper, who she has a crush on. Jasper and Bella know each other in a 6 degrees of separation way, so they've never been super close. The first night at the Cullen's the group goes out dancing and the sparks really begin to fly between Bella and Jasper. Well, one thing leads to another, and umm, yeah just read to find out. hehe.

I like that the smut isn't overly graphic or flowery, but you still feel the intensity between the two and it gives you tingles and makes you laugh. Overall, if you're looking for something short, sweet and a little bit citrusy, A Very Merry Christmas is exactly what you're looking for.

This is a fun story! Alice is dating Edward, her childhood sweetheart. Bella, Alice's BFF, goes home with Alice to the Cullen's for Christmas. They're joined by Emmett, Alice's brother, and Rose, Emmett's fiancée. Also there? Jasper, Emmett's best friend and business partner.

Bella has had a crush on Jasper for three years, we learn. The first night in Boston, where the Cullens live, the group goes out dancing together. I really loved the way the author described Jasper and Bella dancing; something about it was so completely hot to me - his hand moving higher, hers winding through his hair... ung.

The lemony descriptions were brief, and I felt like it fit this one shot perfectly. There aren't eight lines of overly flowery descriptions. It's just enough to whet your appetite for these two.

This is a shorter, light and playful one shot that gets Jasper and Bella in bed and hints at the beginning of something more for them. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Thank you ladies, I'm honoured! This is my first blog recommendation in the Twilight fandom, so it's a big deal to me. I'm so glad you enjoyed the fic.
