The Last Boyfriend (Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy #2) by Nora Roberts
This is an adult contemporary romance novel (Rated NC-17)
(Four Sweet Hearts)
A new novel of a shared past, a fresh start, and a lifetime of love. #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts introduces you to the Montgomery brothers—Beckett, Ryder, and Owen—as they bring an intimate bed-and-breakfast to life in their hometown.Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist—and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers bust on his compulsive list-making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery McTavish...
Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a first-hand look at its amazing renovation—and a newfound appreciation for Owen. Since he was her first boyfriend when they were kids, Owen has never been far from Avery’s thoughts. But the attraction she’s feeling for him now is far from innocent. As Avery and Owen cautiously take their relationship to another level, the opening of the inn gives the whole town of Boonsboro a reason to celebrate. But Owen’s hard work has only begun. Getting Avery to let down her guard is going to take longer than he expected—and so will getting her to realize that her first boyfriend is going to be her last…
This story continues the love affair of the characters. I didn’t like this story as much as the first, but I did enjoy it. Owen is just a really great guy what was there not to love.
What I liked most about this story that although it centered around Owen, the rest of the cast was still in the story and not as back drop. They are there like you would imagine life happens. The other characters aren’t pulled out like they didn’t exist.
Again, I was a bit bothered about the timing of the romance. I know it's possible, but it bothered me again. A bit too convenient.Still, I wasn’t turned off by this book. I had to take it to its end.
If you are looking for books with HEAs (happily ever afters) this is your author and your series.
MacLeod Andrews did an wonderful job with the narration. He used very different voices for each character which he carried through the series.
My book boyfriend, Owen.
