Blue Bloods Grudge Match


February's discussion on Melissa De La Cruz's Blue Bloods Series was fun, intrguing, and seemed to create even more questions about what will happen with Schuyler and her pals. It will be interesting to see if any of those questions get answered with the release of Book 4, The Van Alen Legacy, in September.

One thing we didn't agree on was Schuyler's love interests, Jack and Oliver. So, let's have a GRUDGE MATCH!

Who is the better mate for Schuyler? The ever-popular, debonair Jack Force, or Oliver Hazard-Perry, Schuyler's best friend and protector? Let's hear what you have to say, and don't forget to give us reasons why!

I think Schuyler should go with Oliver!!! I mean i know he is human but she is half human too. And after all he isn't TAKEN!!!!!!!!!!! Jack should not be leading her on cuz he is already taken!!! I mean you know he won't go to her in the end. And Oliver is already there for her 24/7 and they would just be perfect for eachother!!!! Whereas Jack is not right for her. He is just leading her on with the roses and the kisses then when Mimi is around he acts like nothing ever happened. If he is embarrassed about liking Schuler then he shouldn't like her and he should stop persuing her cuz in the end he is just going to end up hurting her and Mimi too. At every event he has kissed Schuyler or done something to make her like him more and she should just stop responding to it. She knows that she likes Oliver and they were like meant to be together!!!!!!! She even said kissing him was better than she ever imagined!!! He is always there when she needs him and always will be. After all he is her conduit!!!! He treats her like a queen and always has. Plus he is already in love with her but Jack is truely in love with Mimi and Schuyler is sorta a fling. Team Oliver!!!!!

I have very mixed feeling about this. On one hand she's got Oliver who is a great guy and very sweet and would do anything for her and she does have feelings for him. On the other hand, she has very strong feelings for Jack and she just can't seem to stay away from him. I don't blame Jack for what's going on. He's trapped. There's not much he can do about what he has been born into and what's supposed to happen though he does seem to try to revolt against it in every incarnation. Also there's the fact that he used to be in love with her mother who looks just like her. That's creepy and weird and you wonder if it's her or her mother he's really got feelings for.

I don't know. I can't decide. At this point I suppose I would be OK with either choice. As far as characters go though, I do like Oliver best.

Oliver is soo much better for her than Jack! Oliver is more caring and actually cares about Schuyler. Jack just uses her for secret trysts, whcih will have to end eventually (because, oh ya, he's with Mimi!)It is better for everyone involved (including Jack and Mimi) if Schuyler just stays with Ollie. (This means that in that in the 4th book, she will probably be with Jack for most of the story. :( I can't wait to find out!)

hi! cool blog! :)

i love blue bloods! anyway, i would have to go with jack force. i know, i know sky's better off with oliver but she and jack just belong together. you just know that that thing that's between them is something else. LOL. i'm not sure if that made sense.

Hey before anybody makes a decision get on Mellissa De La Cruz's website and click the link to target's website. She published Jack's version his parting with Schuyler. It puts a whole different spin on things. For the record I am for Jack. lol. I think Schuyler needs someone who can match her inch for inch in strength and wits and power. Despire the closeness, Oliver can't provide that.

I think that Schuyler is better with Jack. I mean they obviously are in love because they both spend the first two books pining after each other and then in the third book Oliver appears in the romantic arena out of nowhere! Plus while Schuyler would be OK with Oliver, he is a human and only gets one life so if they were together, she could only be happy for 100 years while if she was with Jack, it could last forever. So it really isn't fair of Oliver to expect that she will sacrifice an eternity of happiness over a 100 year blip. Plus, her mom went for a human and see how that turned out!

Hands down JACK!! Sky and Jack ending up together is the ONLY reason I read this book!!

Sky will NEVER love Oliver the way she loves Jack. Oliver can never match up to sky like Jack does!

I prefer Jack for Schuyler.
Oliver is great for her but Jack and her belong together. They can't get enough of eachother even though they both know they can never be, but thats what true love is like.
Like when Jack would kiss Mimi and shit like that, I hated it and I got that icky gut feeling but when Schuyler and Jack kissed and had their romantic moments, I knew it was perfect!!

Jack & Schuyler <3

Jack is the better match for Schuyler hands down. First of all Oliver is a mortal so once his life ends its over between Schuyler and him. Second, the passion that Jack has for Schuyler is so romantic and is a text book case of a soul mate. Not to mention it would really piss off Mimi :D. If Schuyler doesnt end up with Jack I will be very dissapointed.

JACK AND SCHUYLER! they really need to get back together. Mimi and Jack are ick.Its like they are having some incestuous affair at the end of book 3. I hated it, and Oliver needs to get over it and just think okay she will live will live longer then i

Soooo JAck Force!! I only read the books so Schuyler and Jack will get back together. They make a great couple!!! Now I hate oliver!

She and Oliver are meant to be to together. Jack is bonded with Mimi and that's not just like going out, they were actually made for eachother. It's like gone with the wind Scarlett/Scuyler pines away for a guy who doesn't even truly love her until in the end she realizes that the one who loved her was right there all along. That's how I want it to play out anyway. Jack just leads Schuyler on, pretending that everything will be fine when it won't. Jack and Sky aren't a good match at all. He seems all nice and polite but that's just a controlled mask for who he really is. He is Abbadon. Rutthless strong, a killer and Sky is not like that. However Mimi is. Sky is a sweet quiet misfit just like Oliver. She may be a strong vampire but her personality isn't like Jacks. And I do know that Sky and Jack will get together at the end, Oliver will watch sadly from the sidelines, and they'll find some way around the bonding because that's how all these books end. I'm not clueless, but I really hope that doesn't happen because they can't understand eachother and they will not be truly happy. They may have and imitation of happiness but they won't be truly happy.

god! i personally don't like either, well i sorta do-jacks passion and oliver's sincerity-but there are parts i don't like-jack being taken and oliver's one life-in my opinion i want Schuyler to find her own soul-mate. (no jack or oliver)i believe she deserves someone who is HERS and that WILL live for as long as she does. i really hope Melissa de la Cruz does that so if Melissa de la Cruz does that i am SO on his team lol whoever that maybe.

im gonna have to with Jack and sky..the reasons? well, Although everyone says he belongs with mimi and that if he broke the bond, he would be condemned to death by the burning of the bloods, or if he fled his twin would have to go after him and bring him to justice and tht he was truly undeniably hers!!!!.. he actually belongs with schuyler cuz i think their love is stronger than any old bond ya kno? Why else would he take all those risks? and like after sky broke up with him, and after a year apart, one would have thought tht they shudve forgotten about each other, but they didnt, i think their love grew even stronger. And by the looks of tht, i THINK he suppose to actually bond to Schuyler rather than mimi..altho i kno my logic is prolly incorrect about tht lol. but yea.. JACK AND SCHUYLER FOR THE FAWKING WIN!!!!

Jack&&Schuyler, for me! Sky&Oliver & Jack&Mimi are too boring and predictable, imo.
