Love conquers all? Not likely, according to Sara Thornton. She's spent eight years coming to terms with the new parameters of her life while resigning herself to the idea that “happily ever afters” are best left to fairytales. Sales manager for her successful real estate office and juggling an added element of responsibility she never thought she'd face, Sara continues to struggle with the men in her life. Love, for her, has only meant hurt, broken trust and anger; all of which she’s completely banished from her life, so she claims.
Jack Gordon has come a long way since his early days of obsession with Sara. As the general manager of Stewart Realty, his own level of responsibility for the well-being of others has ramped up. He’s even honed his caretaking skills, now that he has someone who loves him unconditionally.
Continuing to invest effort and rebuild their relationship, he and Sara grow close as friends. Despite this, his ultimate question remains unanswered; the one he keeps asking, no matter how many times she says no. Sara isn't prepared for the keen focus of his need--to have her back, once and for all. Her stubborn resistance nearly rips both lives apart.
The epic conclusion to The Realtors series, Closing Costs brings Jack and Sara truly full circle. Proving that the heat of lust and obsession; the need for control and to be mastered in many areas of life can lead to love - surprising you when you least expect it - if you will only allow it.

The final book of Sarah, Jake and Craig which was an interesting read filled with emotions, hate, love, drama, hurt, along with a whole lot more. I did come to like the characters better I still do not care for Sarah, Jake I am still on the fence but I do love Craig and was glad to see he finally got his life together. I never understand why Sarah wouldn't let them find out who the father was. I felt she wanted to keep them both on the hook. She didn't really want to give either up and could keep both in her life with them not knowing.
Sarah always said one thing but always meant another. She was up and down all over the place. I started to like her in book one but gave up about half away through it and have not like her since. I felt she moved from one man to another to punish Jack for things he wasn't guilty for. She misunderstood so much and wouldn't let people explain that things were not as they seemed. She didn't care for it when the tables were turned.
Jack he was a jerk most of the time, couldn't make up his mind and moved from women to women. I felt him and Sarah both were ho's and really deserved each other. However with the ending I did come to like him better and was glad to see everyone got their act together. This up and down and all over the place he and Sarah had set me on the edge, both needed a good slap to get their life together.
Craig he is such a sweetie, I am so glad things worked out for him. Out of the three he deserved to be happy the most. It was nice to see he finally found the women of his dreams.
The narrator as always did a wonderful outstanding job, she really made this series for me.
The author gives you a normal family life of normal people just getting by and trying to live. There sure is no fantasy here but more of how people really are. I can see this playing out with tons of people and I am sure I know a few Sarah and Jacks in my lifetime. I really enjoyed this series just did not care to much for the characters. People can be so hurtful when they don't get what they want. Turning to people who can take the edge off but can never find happiness with. I did wonder if Sarah and Jake decided to take up or walk away from the lifestyle Jake wanted or if he decide vanilla was the life he really needed.
If you are looking for a fantasy love story this is not the book for you, but if you are looking for normal people who really mess up and make everyone around them unhappy before they can find the happiness they want this is the book for you. Go ahead an pick up one of Liz's read I promise it is a book you will not forget for a long time.
