Perfect Fifths

Finished Perfect Fifths by Megan McCafferty.

Summary (from Goodreads):

Old flames are reignited in the fifth and final book in the New York Times bestselling Jessica Darling series.

Captivated readers have followed Jessica through every step and misstep: from her life as a tormented, tart-tongued teenager to her years as a college grad stumbling toward adulthood. Now a young professional in her mid-twenties, Jess is off to a Caribbean wedding. As she rushes to her gate at the airport, she literally runs into her former boyfriend, Marcus Flutie. It’s the first time she’s seen him since she reluctantly turned down his marriage proposal three years earlier–and emotions run high.

Marcus and Jessica have both changed dramatically, yet their connection feels as familiar as ever. Is their reunion just a fluke or has fate orchestrated this collision of their lives once again?

Told partly from Marcus’s point of view, Perfect Fifths finally lets readers inside the mind of the one person who’s both troubled and titillated Jessica Darling for years. Expect nothing less than the satisfying conclusion fans have been waiting for, one perfect in its imperfection. . . ”

It’s the fifth (and, according to the author, final) book in the saga about Jessica Darling and Marcus Flutie.

This is possibly the only series that I’ve been reading since the first book came out, and I’m really sad to see it end. (I am, however, pretty happy with the way it ended.)
Anyway, Jessica and Marcus (another couple in the tortured love category) run into each other–literally–in the airport. Much talking ensues. (Much anxiousness on my part also ensues. Will they finally, FINALLY! get it together?)
I can’t really explain (at least based on this book) why I love the Jessica Darling books so much. I think the best I can say (and it’s a blurb from someone else) is that it’s Judy Blume meets Dorothy Parker. And how can you not love that combination?
So yeah, I’m hoping that Megan McCafferty changes her mind.
