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.

I am sad to see this series come to an end. Especially since Jessica FINALLY!!! gets back with Marcus!!! And Bridget and Percy finally get married. I really enjoyed this series.

Not my favorite book in the series

A perfect ending to the Jessica Darling series! I was so happy when this one came out, because the 4th one is not at all what I wanted for a conclusion. This however, does not disappoint!

The conclusion of this series takes place over less than 24hrs. I didn't find the ending all that satisfactory and I think it has something to do with the fact that all the other books in the series ended with either a diary entry, a letter or an email which would update the reader on the "final" situation. The fact that this was missing from the end of this book made the whole thing seem like it was improbable and an entire waste of time. We all knew that the two main characters would get back together at the end of this book, so a little more meat than a bunch of meanderings through each of their minds would've been nice.

Incredible conclusion to the series! Well worth reading the fourth book for!

Last Jessica Darling novel and it did not disappoint. I only wish it were longer and didn't have to end.
