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. . . .From the Hardcover edition.

Yes, events happen, but the structure and scenario are forced, the whole middle section reads like a one-act play (all dialogue, no stage direction), and the fantastically written sexual ...
At this point, the only option left for me is to take every single series/trilogy/duology finale and dump it into a giant cardboard box, tightly wrapped with duct tape, haul it into my attic and then write "Do Not Open Until 2014" on it. Quite simply put, this year is just not my year for series con...
This book was really, really the Perfect Fifth. The relationship between Marcus and Jessica culminates in this fifth instalment and last of the series. I've read it in less than 24 hours. I just couldn't stop reading it once I started it. Looking back, I now understand the geniousness in these books...
I only read this because it had Marcus's POV. He is a fantastic character and I really like him. Jessica? Meh. Their rapid fire banter got a little old [especially when it was filled with weird [cough], [sniff] and [pause] brackets throughout] but, I'm happy he got his HEA.
