Per author- “After Edward leaves Bella & Alice leaves Jasper, their worlds collide. They have no one to turn to but each other for comfort and become good friends...but maybe more. But is it enough to mean forever?”
I’ve never read a Bella/Jasper fanfiction, unless you count Son of a Preacher Man. I was curious, so I downloaded several. The summary for An Imperfect Love sounded interesting, so I thought it would be a good one to start with.
I don’t even know where to begin. This story is ridiculous. It was a DNF for me. I got to about 20% I think and couldn’t go on. I tried to skip to the end just to see how it she finished it but couldn’t even get through the last chapter.
I have so many problems with the story. It begins 3 months after Edward leaves Bella in New Moon. She’s a mess. Alice breaks up with Jasper so he finds himself in Forks, checking on her. The attraction is apparently immediate, and no time is needed to heal from their past relationships. There is some weirdness where Bella keeps sitting on Jasper’s lap while they drive Edward’s Vanquish. That’s when it all started going downhill, and it was in the first few chapters.
The rest of the Cullens seem to accept this new relationship immediately without any issues, and call Edward names behind his back. Bella is mouthy and loud, she blames the fact that she was more insecure and reserved before Jasper on Edward. Was she not like that before she met him? She’s having these dreams about everyone’s pasts, and can apparently affect the moods of others. And she can change the weather. These powers develop overnight, but the newly improved Bella doesn’t question it or seem overly concerned. Who wants to worry about things when you can party and sex up Jazz whenever you want?
I am so irritated, and am not sure I am ready to try another Bella/Jasper fic anytime soon. There are more plot holes than I can count, and I hated the Edward bashing.
