February 3: Marcus Flutie and Jessica Darling

For our third day I have selected couple I just love--Marcus Flutie and Jessica Darling, from the Jessica Darling Series by Megan McCafferty. 

Summary Without Spoilers: Jessica and Marcus live in a small town in New Jersey. Jessica is the smart girl, and a track star. She is sarcastic, funny, and oddly insightful. Marcus is the bad boy: brilliant, but rebellious. Over five books they go from friends to soul mates, in one of the sweetest courtships I have ever experienced. 

Summary With Spoilers: In Sloppy Firsts, Jessica and Marcus flirt. She pees in a cup for him. He is mister mysterious. In Second Helpings, Jessica dates Marcus's best friend, Len, but she always has feelings for Marcus. At the end, they get together, when he sings her a song at prom. They date during the third book, Charmed Thirds. She cheats on him, but he gets over it. He proposes to her in the next book, Fourth Comings, and she says no. They part ways until the fifth book, when they run into each other at the airport. Within 24 hours, they are back together, permanently, forever. 

Why I Love Them:

-Because of the kiss in the bathroom in Second Helpings. It is so hot!

-Because of the ending of Second Helpings. The song!!!! Such a good ending!

-Because of how sweet they were in Perfect Fifths. He loved her so much. He was so attracted to her. He had never forgotten her.

-Because of the last entry in Perfect Fifths--so simple, so sweet. I love just seeing them happy, together. 

-Because of all their little rituals, all their silent moments that mean so much. 

Sweet Little Taste of Their Love:
