It was one night. One night of passionate sex but still one night and one night only, I told myself. We couldn't start this and she knew that as well as I did. She licked her plump lips and blushed as I lectured. This was going to be a long and epic April.
Many stories come and go, you read them once, enjoy it and have a fin experience before it's forgotten in that long list of "favorite" stories. This story on the other hand, possesses the beauty, originality, and all around wonderfulness of a timeless classic that are so rare to come by in fan fiction. April in Paris was recommended to me when I had lost hope in Bellisle stories, despite being a writer myself I couldn't find anything fresh and original within the non-canon fan fiction realm. This story has everything you could want from a fan fic - humor, romance, drama, a touch of sugar and spice that will make your toes curl with happiness.
The author shows a clear love for the saga, it's characters, and for writing. Her portrayal of Professor Carlisle Cullen is positively scrumptious, he is the classic hero with a twist we all want to fall head over heels for. AutumnSong portrays him in a whole new light as not just a Professor of Gothic literature at a university in Paris, but also an avid fan of English soccer. What could be kinkier than Professor Cullen in a Soccer kit?
Isabella Swan is the most likable heroine in this story, her strength, willpower and determination is truly a thing to be admired. The gifted artist and university student - she is a character in her own right and not simply the lucky one with the cute guy. Indeed, the author could have made this story just about Bella and it would still be a terrific masterpiece.
This story is a one of a kind gem and not to be cast aside. I highly recommend this story, give it a try you will not be disappointed.
