| Feeding Ground 2/17/11 . chapter 25
I am so sad now I want to cry. :( If I was in Jenna's position I would have completely no idea what to do. I think her and Wesley's conversation at the end was very important, as the reader even I could feel Wesley's disinterest towards Jenna while he was at work and then his 180 degree flip to this chilled and happy guy while they were on holiday.
As for Jon, up until this chapter I was never really sure about him, as in my mind he was moving in on my woman and man's relationship! However, his blunt demeanour and carefree lifestyle made me realise that at least his relationship with Jenna cuts all the BS and doubt... but I am still more partial to Wesley... I think I am slightly sadistic. :(
In regards to the Wesley/Kim scene from the last chapter, I am glad you put it in. Once I read it through the first time I had to go back and read it again because I was so shocked! My first reaction was heartbreak, I couldn't understand why he was with Kim and why he was doing that to Jenna, but then I was thinking maybe the idea of Jenna and Jon together pained him so much that he needed a distraction (...what can I say? I'm a hopeless romantic!), but by the end of the chapter I pretty much wanted to shoot him. I'm so engrossed in all your characters lives that I felt like Wesley had done wrong by me. I'm going to put this down to your brilliant writing abilities. All the characters seem so real to me!
It's been so long since I have managed to find an author on FP were I have loved every single one of their stories. This past week has been a massive roller coaster for me, as I have made my way through all your completed stories (alas I have not reviewed them YET, please don't shoot me!) and simply haven't been able to stop reading them until they finished or I simply couldn't stay away any longer. I hope you can update soon!

I could not begin to tell you how much i luv this story. I was beyond estatic when i saw new chapters up after such a long break. This story makes my day, my night, my everything. i think i just may cry when it's over.
Anyway, i luv the plot twist! I've been wondering what's been up with Wesley the last few chapters. And then when i found out he was still seeing Kim 0_0. i couldn't belive it. i couldn't stop thinking sbout it. i went to bed, woke up and STILL could not believe it. I Knew something was up with him but i did not think it had anything to do with Kim. my heart goes out to him though. i can't imagine what he's going through (for i have never been in luv). Poor Wesley.
But on the upside. i luv seeing more of Jon. He's a very likable charater. Since Wesley's been distracted with work( and apparently Kim) Jon seems to become a very important person in this story. i deffinitely want to see more of him. And Wesley. Actually especially Wesley. Now that Jenna has chosen Jon over Wesley i'm worried about what that will mean for him. Don't let him go back to Kim! I believe that deep down Wesley really does love Jenna. he just hasn't realized it yet. i beg you to make him realize it soon. i mean i've come to luv Jon very much but i luv Wesley a little more.
What ever you chose to do with this story i'm sure i won't be diappionted. you are a fabulous (in my opinion) writer no matter what people say. Pease don't take such a long break again. it kills me. this is my favorite story on fictionpress. dont stop writing even if a lot of people bitch at you for the decisions you make in your story. i think a lot of people dont understand that its YOUR story. You can do whatever the hell you want with it.
Keep writing. I await your next chapter.

Can I just say that I absolutely hate this "one review per chapter" rule? I mean, if I wanna spam a chapter with reviews because I really liked it, shouldn't I be able to? Psh.
Anyway, this is just me haras-ahem! Reminding. I mean reminding. I'm reminding you that there are still lots of us out here that love your story and we're hoping that you haven't forgotten about us hanging here like hopeless morons waiting for the next chapter, twiddling our thumbs and the like. Whistling like maniacs. I hope the haters have decreased in number and if not, just let me know who they are. I'll give them a piece of my mind. ;D
| Preposterous 2/12/11 . chapter 25
I love your story. Forget all the haters... their opinions don't matter.
I read all the chapters you've posted within 2 days. And let me say... I'm shocked. The way you transitioned from JennaTravis to JennaWesley to JennaWesleyJon is seamless. It's really amazing.
I also like how all the characters have their faults. It adds verisimilitude.
Personally, I think Wesley and Jenna are incompatible. They've got too many trust issues, and Wesley seems like he still has a mistress. Jon definitely has his faults, but he's more patient and doesn't expect her to be a breeding machine (What kind of loving man would expect his wife to go into excruciatingly painful-or so I've heard-labor more than thrice?)
So, kudos on the excellent story/plotline. Hope you update soon.
| Genato 2/11/11 . chapter 25
NOW I CAN'T CHOOSE FROM EITHER MEN. I loved Wesley first, of course.. but what he's doing with Kim... *sigh** And maybe Jenna would never forgive him again. :( I'M EQUALLY TORN BETWEEN THEM, AND THAT'S YOUR FAULT. YOU SUCK! :))
Anyway, you really do write brilliantly. I like your plot and how you made the cliche "The Proposal" plot line different and more believable. However, I really liked Wesley from the start but since Jon came, I dunno. But maybe I like Wesley since he was the first. :)) Second, the best thing I love in your fic is your witty conversations. I SWEAR, they're so funny and interesting.
One thing I don't like about your story is that I'm so confused on why they would adopt, but you've written your side in A/N and you're the author and all but still... ALSO, I DON'T APPRECIATE HAVING TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE TWO. It was easier picking from Jacob and Edward for Bella, let me assure you (even if I'm not such a fan of Twilight.. especially the movie). But hey, it keeps the story interesting. But I don't like not having the person to root for. :))
Btw, what happened to Jessica, and the receptionist that replaced Jenna, George... they just kind of disappeared from the story.
Hope you update!

Hi, I just wanted to say that there might be a mistake in this part of the story: "Non, non. Malhereusement, je ne paux pas". I'm pretty sure it should be je ne peux pas. (which means, I can't) I think it's really cool that there is french in this story cause I'm taking french in highschool and it's fun to see if I know what the words mean.
| Novocaine for the Soul 2/4/11 . chapter 25
Wow it's been so long since I've read this story, but I think I'm finally caught up. Sorry about my last review I reread it and I must have been out of it, because now I don't even remember what I was talking about.
Anyway I actually liked the Wesley/Kim scene because I had a feeling that's would happen and you proved me right. I don't hate him though, I actually like both Wesley and Jon.
I'm interested in seeing how things resolve themselves. And I have to say I understand why things are happening like they are, since my characters tend to take over and write themselves too. What I don't understand is why everyone's so mad at the way you're writing. It is your writing after all.
There was something else but I can't remember now. Hmm
| Batman is exotic 2/1/11 . chapter 25
Honestly, I love wesley and jon it's just too damn hard to say who I like more. Gosh...why did you make them both so amazing?
| violet-eyez 1/31/11 . chapter 25
yay she is picking jon
| Riya 1/30/11 . chapter 25
i love your story! i think you could actually publish it. what i dont get is why wesley is fun for while and then becomes all serious again. i hope he changes and jenna picks him.
| Tahie254 1/29/11 . chapter 25

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I think you're doing a great job! I totally understand that your characters run away with themselves (mine do too), and I'm not going to get mad at you either way. It actually makes me kind of upset that people are really getting mad at you. Because it's not their place to tell you what you should write, and you shouldn't bother with what other people say to what you know you should be writing.
And while I think we are all a little bit angry at Wesley, we aren't the ones in his head, and we can't judge it like that like you can.
And I will say, I don't have a side. I am an incredibly indecisive person as a rule, and I can't pick in books anymore than I can pick in life. Especially in a story like this. And anyways, I figured I would be a little bit more than just a phantom person subscribing to your author alert, I'll try to be faithful with these!
And until you post again! :)

"Nothing" by the Script. I was listening to this song while reading this And I think it fits Wesley's case though not perfectly. Try listening to it. Don't know why. HAHA :D "Good girls go bad" by? (can't remember all I know is Leighton Meester was in the music's video) in Jenna's case. In Jon's case: "Rocketeer" by Far East Movement ft Ryan Tedder. HAHA

First of all, i fully support your stance to defend yourself, I do not agree to reviewers who take their time to type "you suck, bye" too! That's just rude and inconsiderate.
Secondly, I'm so confused! When you asked in your author's note about why we like Jon, I kept that in mind while reading it, but then when it came to Wesley's time, I had a secret wish hoping Wesley will confess and make an effort to woo Jenna! I like both Jon and Wesley, and at this point I'm just of following your story line in the hopes that everything will end happily and satisfactorily :).
Although now, I've completely forgotten all the good things about Wesley, the only good thing I can remember are superficial, like money and looks. Jenna's right, although I don't really agree with Jon, at least he doesn't hide. Now that I know Wesley has a BIG fault, he still can't let go of Kim, and can't let go of Jenna either, he's being selfish and dishonest, and that's a big NO - no matter how rich in worldly matters he is.
If Jenna is going to end up with Wesley, he needs some serious browney points, and the scene where Jon secretly got her a coat made me smile :).
Right now, Jon seems like the good guy because he's so laid back and makes awesome pancakes, while wesley looks like the corrupted good guy who keeps going to the dark. Perhaps Jenna should not choose either? Or perhaps she could contemplate on her own character traits- good and bad - so she can see which decision she should take?
