Cullen818 Fic Rec - The Scent of Fear


I know this was rec'd by Rosella Whitlock, our Naughty Girl for A Day, a few months ago, but I wanted to add my two cents!

This is not your average romance story with Sweetsper and Bella, so if you're looking for fluffy, you should pass on this one. But, if you are looking for a captivating, well written dark story starring an aggressive, dominant Jasper, well, look no further. This Jasper is controlling, sexy and Major-like. Yum...

The opening lemon had me on the edge of my seat. I was like, "Oh, no! Poor Bella!", but then I noticed that "poor Bella" was kind of into it. And, obviously Jasper knew she would be. The twist in this story is Alice. She's privy to what's going on and she likes to watch (and sometimes participate). But, this isn't a story about a threesome. It starts out that way, but right off the bat, VampishVixen sets a tone that helps you understand just what kind of relationship these three are embarking on and eventually, we start to see how Jasper's feelings start to evolve for Bella. It may have been about claiming her in the beginning, but with each chapter you see that start to change. It's also sexy when Bella tells Jasper when she needs to play.

I'm also very intrigued by the sub-plot. I don't want to give too much away, but I love the back story and character development of Jasper. He's fierce for a reason. This is a WIP that's about 15 chapters in, so jump in now. This is a very unique take on the J/B fic.


  1. ZOMG! I totally just geeked out on Twitter when I saw this. You see, it was the Faith/Hope/Love series that turned me Team Jasper in the first place, so yeah, this rec, coming from you meant a lot!
    Thank you SO much!!!

  2. ***blushes*** Its a great story and I'm thrilled to know I had a small part in getting it written.

    I also meant to PM you and tell you I was rec'ing it, but I got sidetracked. I'm glad you saw it:)
