I’m still in “wow” mode at this book.  I think my heart actually stopped at one point thinking “oh no this can’t happen”, but those of us familiar with Liz’s books knows all too well her outstanding ability to shock the crap out of you in many ways.  Throughout this whole book Maroon 5’s One More Night and Elton John’s I Guess That’s Why They Call it the Blues poured into the back of my head.

 So far the Stewart Realty Series is absolutely outfreakingstanding.  I’ve said it before how much I love a book that wretches your emotions right out of you.  Book 3, Closing Costs definitely accomplished that, at one point it had me yelling “YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME” at my Kindle, earning me a weird look from hubby and startling the puppies into a barking fit.

Closing Costs spans the next decade or so in the drama that is Jack and Sara.  Their usual sizzling hot physical connection is ever present, and both the hot explosive sex and the tender loving scenes are completely enthralling and assured to get your blood pumping.  All the usual characters are somewhat present, some more than others and briefly mentioned ones from previous books are brought further into the saga.

Jack, Sara and Craig struggle as usual to find happiness and the child complicates things even further then they have ever been.  Ever present is the enormous self-destruction that plagues both Jack and Sara when it comes to relationships and especially their relationship.  The outrageous things these two do to sabotage their relationships is frustrating, infuriating and captivating, like watching the preverbal train wreck happen. 

As the time passes and the drama unfolds we see nearly all the characters maturing , of course with some, for every step forward there are two backwards in the evolutionary ladder.  The last chapter and the Epilogue had me balling my eyes out and it couldn’t have been more perfect.  So perfect that I’m a little scared of what havoc the next book in the series will bring.
