Doesn't he usually show up when Anita is in danger? Especially when there's a contract out for her....I mean I know there was a lot going on, but come on! He always shows up around then. Right? *frowns*

Ok, well, other than that and some brief sadness that Haven is gone, I was actually surprised and really enjoyed the book. Even with all the sexsexsex, at least it wasn't all gratuitous and meaningless sex this time. Nice.

So, a year has passed and Anita seems to have become a [/i]lot more comfy with the more adventurous sex - good for her (and everyone else, too!) big grin

Can we say, "Left hanging" here!

ok, i will kinda agree about the ugh sexsexsex part. I got the feeling that edward's part was just edited out. like what an editor would do when they need to cut out 30 minutes of a movie when it's too long. i feel that lkh swapped out edward's part and inserted jacob from flirt.
it almost seems that she couldn't bring edward in with all of the sex and work his part in it all.

*sighs* Yep, that's kinda of what I thought, too, but I had to ask. Hard to bring Edward in now, huh?
Ah, well, hopefully next one especially if the action is going to amp up. I can't wait for that!

He shows up when he knows Anita is in danger. She never called him. True, he knew before about a hit on her, but thats because the hit was sent to him. Its possibly that the intermediaries see now he wont take it, so they dont sent them to him. Thus, he would have no way of knowing about a hit. no reason to come in for the save.

I think it is to save Edward from Anita

no pod person edward for another book!

I cannot see a single way to write Edward into Anita's current lifestyle without him laying the smackdown on her

Here's an idea for possible redemption when/if we see a conclusion to the story (b/c seriously, how do you write a novel and not conclude the primary story arc, but whatever): How would it be if Edward didn't call b/c he's going to pick up the contract. You know, I swore I wouldn't write any fan fic based off Bullet, but... AH! PLOT BUNNY! Somebody get him... Ah!

Okay, okay... I got him. So, would anyone read this if I write it? I'd really try to get the characterizations back to earlier novels. I am (if it is not obvious by my fics) a fan of an older and less whore-ish Anita.

I want, I want, I want, oh hell I don't know what I want. I would read it, but my eyes might be closed the whole entire time? I like that Anita and Edward have moved beyond the whole show down mentality, but yet I really can't imagine Edward being okay with the path that Anita is taking. On the other hand in SK, he treated her as a victim of her job. Everything that has happened to her was a like a gun shot she received from her job.
A very good plot bunny.

Oo, I'd read it! I mean I've liked, loved, hated, detested, (add any adjective you want!) etc., just about all of the characters, so I'm always up for a great storyline from others.

Okay, I'm putting together notes for this vicious little bunny. Anyone want to beta a chapter when I get one written?

I thought the entire book took place over the course of one day...not enough time for Edward to get to St.Louis!!!! Or am I wrong about the time frame?

I haven't read it yet, so I don't know about the time frame.

I think it would be interesting to read a story about Edward taking a contract on Anita. It'd be a little OOC since he's decided she's his soul mate, but maybe he thinks that her life has gotten way off course and it's his duty to 'fix it' for her. Any progress on that piece, or did it die a natural death?

I've started. Sidetracked on thesis research but I promise to be back in a few weeks. If you want to read what I have let me know and I'll email it to you.

Don't you hate when things get in the way of the plot bunnies? 8-)

I think it did take place over the course of a day. Or at least fairly close to that from what I remember. That gives an excuse for why Edward hadn't shown up yet, but also makes me even more certain that this should have been a short story or half a book. Oh, wait, she didn't resolve much of anything, so that means it is half a book. (No, I'm not disappointed at all...)

Having gotten a sneak peek at MandaLyn's plot bunny, I'm excited about it.

eh, could you imagine though what would happen if Edward was around with the Haven thing going on? The Haven problem was something Anita had to go through and feel all on her own. I think Edward being around would have mucked it up. Don't get me wrong, Edward is one of my favorite characters top 3 with Anita and Nathaniel, but i think it's good Laurell waited for Hitlist.
