In "Twilight" it is evident from the beginning of the novel that Bella is very drawn to Edward.  She falls in love with Edward right away.  She is already invested in a relationship with Edward when she spends time with Jacob.  Her relationship with Jacob is more of a platonic relationship.  She cares deeply for Jacob but not in a romantic way.  He is more of a brother figure to her.  One indication of this is that Jacob is younger than Bella.  Edward is her ideal man.  She can't figure out what Edward's secret is, but she can't help the way she feels.  She is comfortable with Jacob but not physically attracted.
