Blind by Jayliwood

This was the first human Twilight fan fic that I read and I have to say it is still one of my favorites. The author, Jayliwood, has won several awards for this fic and others and I really enjoy her story lines and writing. She has the perfect balance of believable sex and romance scenes along with just enough angst to keep you on the edge of your seat.

The premise of the story is that Bella and Edward are both college students in Louisiana but Edward is blind. Bella is the first girl that treats him as a normal person and they soon fall for each other. Bella is roommates with Alice and Edward with Jasper, which is nice way to keep the couples in cannon. Rosalie and Emmett are also a couple and it’s refreshing to have a story where Rosalie isn’t a raging bitch. Renee is a bitch, which is all I can say without giving too much of the storyline away. While I think the author did a great job with Bella’s character she really captured Edward’s character the best. Some fan fics come off with Edward being too whiney. There is a big difference between whiney and angst-filled and some fan fics are way off base with Edwards personality. The sex scenes are amazing and give you flutters without being hardcore porn-like some fan fics I’ve read.

The only downside to the fic, if I had to pick one, would be the grammar. When she has a beta look over her chapters they are fine but when she doesn’t the grammar and spelling is pretty bad. However, aren’t we all like that? I know I am when I write.
