I'm actually pretty surpised they didn't get physical with each other!...NOW that I think about it.... But I was soo into the emotions that were going on in the book that I didn't think about it while I was reading the book! I loved Eclipse!
I was totally expecting a fight that would have been awesome but also sad because it would have made bella upset.But then again i know that that really isnt how Edward deals with things and he would never have wanted Bella upset. jacob totally would have him though.
I have to admit I was HOPING for the fight, but deep down I knew it wasn't going to happen... it's not Stephanie's style and it would have messed up the relationships with Bella. So even though I was looking forward to Edward knocking off Jacob's block, it played out better than I expected. KUDOS to Steph :-)
A little i have to admit, but i dont get why jacob cant leave bella alone...

No, actually i did not. If you think about it Edward is over a hundred years old....and he and Bella have been thru a lot, so Edward was more than sure of Bellas love for him and Jacobs "cheating" in a way. Plus Edward did say that if Bella chose Jacob he would stand aside and let her live however she chose.
of course i WILL be on Edward's side if this kinda fight happens. However its better off without the fight thing, since both guys are strong, i think only Bella will get hurt (not literally) over the fight..
i was kinda expecting a fight, but then when i read edward's explanation about why he didn't fought jacob was very reasonable, so i may not like it if they fought, so it became like i'd like them to fight but another side of me said they shouldn't fight
but in a lot of ways i wished that edward would get jacob out of the picture so he and bella could get on with it but on the other hand jacob was such a big part of bellas life that killing his character off would have destroyed hers completly. i think steph made a good choice in the way the book turned.. i personally think that if they did un up fightin ...jacob would win.=) it would have added a nice twist to the story tho;)
