In this epic conclusion to Liz Crowe’s The Realtors series, things for Sara Thornton and Jack Gordon are both completely different and exactly the same. Their circumstances are wildly different, something they’ve both spent a great deal of time coming to terms with. Their feelings, however, remain the same, however much they try to deny it.
Despite their difficulty in getting used to the new things in their lives, they’ve actually been beneficial in terms of forcing the pair of them together and making them attempt to rebuild their relationship. They grow close as friends, which works for them… until one of them does something to screw it up and then they seem to move right back to square one.
Their on-again off-again status has them caught in a vicious circle, but with other people and responsibilities to consider, can they afford to keep messing around?
Although Closing Costs had a very satisfying conclusion, I felt it was a long time in coming. Book three had a lot of jumping ahead in time, which I found a little disconcerting at times – I’d just be engaging with a particular part of the storyline, then the next chapter would be talking about two years later. I can see why it had to be done that way, but I did find it a little jarring, which did dampen my enjoyment of the book somewhat. Having said that, though, the first two books made me invested enough in the characters to want to see it through to the end, and see what the future held for them. Overall, I thought it was really nicely tied up, for the secondary characters as well as Sara and Jack. I wasn’t particularly surprised by the ending, but there were enough twists and turns in the entirety of the three books to more than make up for it. These books were about the journey, more than the destination for me.
So if you’re looking for a well-written series about people with real problems and dilemmas, as well as tons of hot sex, then you should definitely check out The Realtors.
