This is the second book in the Inn BoonsBoro trilogy by Nora Roberts. I read the first book, The Next Always, just last month. You can read that review here. The Last Boyfriend was so great! Here’s the Goodreads summary.
“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…”
I loved this book! It was a great continuation of the Inn BoonsBoro story.
Owen and Avery, together, had such great chemistry. I love that their story began so many years earlier and that their relationship is truly based on a solid foundation of friendship. Their love is sweet and romantic and yet passionate. I think I love these two more than Clare and Beckett (book 1)!
I also loved that we finally saw the Inn opening! All of the hard work read about in the first book, finally came to completion and became even more real. LOVE the Inn! It’s very much its own character.
Finally, I’m so excited Nora Roberts gave us more information about “Elizabeth” the ghost at the Inn. Learning more of her back story and seeing how she interacts with the different characters is definitely interesting. I’m really looking forward to the next book and seeing how her story continues.
I just all-around love this series. I love how Nora Roberts makes you love every character and connect so deepely with each character. These are absolutely light and fluffy reads, but they’re also romantic and keep you hooked.
