Book Club Friday - The Last Boyfriend

Book Club - The Last Boyfriend


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…
The only other Nora Roberts books that I have read is the Bride Quartet Series, that I loved. This is Book 2 in the Inn Boonsboro Trilogy. I really liked this book - it is about 3 childhood friends that move back near each other, and (spoiler) fall in love with three brothers. This one is about Avery, whose first boyfriend might just be her last. I like that it also weaves in the building of the Inn, although there is a ghost story weaved in as well. It was a big part of the first book and since I generally don't believe in ghosts, it is not my favorite part. But this book is diving more into the "who" of the ghost. I give it 3.5 stars out of 5. But will read the last book when it comes out in November.
