Question: You are a matchmaker --your goal, hook up two characters from two of your favorite books. Who would it be? How do you think it would go?As a matchmaker, my ultimate goal is the happiness of the characters. I started with the question, "Who do I love that deserves to be happy?" The answer: Megan from the Ruby Oliver books. Megan is possibly the most underestimated character in this series. She's the best friend Ruby has--loyal, loving and always there even when everyone else hates Ruby. And at first Ruby doesn't even realize that they're friends. Megan's a true romantic and wants to be in love more than anything else.
WARNING: These might be sorta spoilers for the Jacky Faber series. Nothing major unless you're completely unfamiliar with the series.
Enter Jamie from the Bloody Jack series. I know I know you're going to say that he's in love with Jacky. As much as I loved the beginning of this series I've grown tired of the repetition. Jamie wants to settle down, to have a family and Jacky wants to go on adventures. Their life goals conflict. It's not fair to force Jacky to settle down but it's also not fair for her to string Jamie along. It's time for them to go their separate ways.
Megan wants to settle down and be in love. She's beautiful, kind and loving. I think Jamie deserves a stable relationship and the last few books of the Bloody Jack series have made it obvious that Jacky isn't ready for that. Jamie deserves a chance to be happy which he's never going to get with Jacky. Despite the genre hopping and potential time travel involved, I think these two could make it work.
(I do realize that almost EVERY week I reference the Ruby Oliver books. But that should tell you how much I love them)
