Review: The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts

  • TheLastBoyfriend200From
  • 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…” – Penguin Group
  • My Review:

  • This is a wonderful Trilogy about 3 brothers who refurnish a old Inn in a wonderful town called Boonsboro. As they are rebuilding the Inn, they learn alot about themselves and each other.   In this book, they celebrate the opening of The Inn, and everyone is so excited that it is open!  This story focuses on Avery and Owen getting to know each other.  I enjoyed reading how their relationship grew into something more.  Avery is learning how to put her past behind her, and to get past some emotional pain in her life. I enjoyed the part about Lizzie the Ghost, who haunts the Inn with her honeysuckle fragrance.
  • Even though this could be a “stand alone” book – I recommend you read all 3 books in order.  ** In the first book “The Next Always”, we meet the entire family including Beckett and Ryder, and their Mother who is the “driving force” behind this family as they all respect and love her.   The continuing story of Claire and Beckett in this book is really sweet, and I enjoyed how their family is included in this book.
  • There is a actual Inn Boonsboro in  Boonsboro, MD.  To read more about The Inn, visit  Inn Boonsboro On The Square .       Read an Excerpt of  “The Last Boyfriend”  visit here and scroll down.
