Author's Summary: Bella is a paid assassin traveling down a long road paved with regrets and disappointment. One day she runs into Edward Cullen and her life changes forever. What will happen if Edward finds out Bella's dirty secret? AU. AH. OOC.
Why Bbebar loves it:
To put it simply, I love GAWM because I have yet to read another fic like it. I saw iAMurPoison on twitter mention that she was writing a new story. All I recall of her answer, after asking what it was about, is her mention of a badass Bella. Frankly, that was enough for me because let's face it, you're a lot more likely to find a badass Edward in fanfiction.
Bella in GAWM is a paid assassin. That's right; she gets paid to kill people. (I told she was badass.) The story begins with Bella on her regular morning coffee run. On this day, she is more distracted than usual due to an upcoming job, and she literally runs right into someone. Looking up, she sees a man so gorgeous that she is completely affected by him. So much so, that she continues to be distracted at work. Even her partner Rose notices that something is off.
However, Bella has a job to prepare for and must fly out of town that evening. iAMurPoison's description of Bella in her element is all kinds of win. It reminds me of a cross between Alias and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Not only is Bella a badass, but she's good at what she does. The people she is hired to kill are criminals. There is no sympathy for the victims here.
Edward is a business man who works at Cullen Investments. After running into Bella at the coffee shop, he continues to be distracted as well. In fact, he plans to return the next morning at the same time in hopes of running into her again. After a day at the office, Edward heads out to a club with his brother Emmett. Emmett soon hooks up with a woman, so Edward is left to entertain her friend, Jessica. He takes her back to her place, and the sex scene that follows is when I decided that this Edward is Cockyward. He not only acts as if he's doing Jessica a favor by letting her be fucked by him, he also fantasizes about Bella the entire time.
Eventually, Edward and Bella do meet again. Their attraction to each other is obvious. However, due to Bella's line of work, she does not allow herself to date. Edward keeps asking, and she keeps turning him down. She very much wants to be with him but doesn't see how it could possibly work.
This story has it all if you ask me. It's sexy, funny, and uniquely intriguing. I am loving Cockyward's and Assassinella's interactions. Their chemistry is off the charts, and I have a feeling it's only going to get stronger. My head is filled with so many possibilites as to where iAMurPoison will take this story. All I know for sure is that I'm in for one hell of an exciting ride.
