Headcanon time: even though Percy’s soft spot at the small of his back doesn’t exist anymore it’s still common to see Annabeth hug him from behind and it is because she feels she can protect him from any harm this way. And it really feels nice so Percy isn’t complaining.
(And he keeps kissing her shoulder where she got stabbed in the Battle of Manhattan to soothe her also not existing pain)

When the book is living up to the hype
Oh, yes. One of the reasons I don’t ship them as strongly as I do Percy/Annabeth is because we never really see how they got together. Percy and Annabeth have five books of build up, while Piper and Jason only have The Lost Hero, during most of which Jason is an amnesiac and Piper has false memories of a non-existent relationship with Jason clouding her thoughts. And yeah, not all ships need to have a slow burning, will-they-won’t-they development, but I think Riordan skipped a vital step or two in developing and presenting their relationship in later books.
I would’ve loved to see more of them between The Lost Hero and Mark of Athena, or had Jason wait until he came to New Rome and settled with his past to finally make a move on Piper. I probably wouldn’t have been apathetic about Piper’s relationship related insecurities if there was more of that in-between development. (He kind of did the same thing with the set up of Annabeth and Piper’s friendship too, though. “We’re friends! We have in jokes about stealing food!” Okay, I guess? I don’t really buy it, but whatever, they’re BFFs. Hazel and Piper’s friendship developed much more naturally.)
