The Last Boyfriend is the 2nd book of the Inn Boonsboro Trilogy and what a book it was. Nora Roberts has such a knack for writing sexy, yet everyday guys. I particularly love this series since the characters are so easy to identify with. You find yourself wanting to be their best friends, live in their town, date their guys, forgetting they aren't “real”.
Avery McTavish and the Montgomery boys have been friends forever. Avery’s mom left when she was little leaving her father to raise her alone. The Montgomery family stepped in and added to the family her father and she didn't have. There isn't a time that she hasn't loved the Montgomery’s, but Owen Montgomery, in particular, has always had her heart.
Owen Montgomery along with his brothers have their hands full renovating the Inn BoonsBoro, keeping up with the myriad of additional projects their mother comes up with and trying to find out exactly who the ghost is that lives in the Inn. Life is busy, but good. He is surrounded by the family he loves in the town that he loves, doing what he's always wanted to and staying busy. God only knows why all of a sudden he's starting to see Avery in a different light. She's always been in his life. Heck, they were each other's first kiss. She was a kid, but it counts, right? His feelings are changing and they are definitely not the same feelings he had when he humored the little girl who followed him around with a huge crush.
I especially enjoyed the banter between Owen and his brother Ryder. Ryder has such a sharp, sarcastic wit and Owen had no problems keeping up. I can not wait for Ryder's story.
Say something about yourself!
Yes, but the plot seemed very predictble..
A less male macho comments from the brothers.
I hate all the cursing that Nora has put in her books the last ??? years. The stories are fantastic, especially this series, as I live less than an hour from where they are taking place, but the f bombs prevent me from completing the books. Is it necessary to be bombarded by filth? I don't think so, even in these days and times.
All the cursing, especially the f bombs.
Nora: Please clean up your books so that people other than the bottom feeders can enjoy your books again. Your friend in Brunswick.
Love audible. Great for my family, we listen together sometime.
Story not to mushy - just right. Love the playful ghost - - and the fact that love kept her rooted and grounded in the best place ever...her new home. Finding Billy and hearing his account of his life - made the story even better.
I am on my 6th listening of this series. I am so into the characters, I swear I could be them!
ALL the characters are AWESOME!
Macleod Andrews nails the voices for the characters in his narrations. I can picture each one vividly and can imagine them talking the way he tells it.
Justine, because of her style and wisdom
MAKE ME A MOVIE!
I love this story line. These brothers are "dream" guys. The idea that these three rough & tough guys can be brought to their knees by "the look" from their Mom is awesome.
The entire series is great. The only problem I have is that there is only three books! I want more of the Montgomery boys!
MacLeod "makes" these characters come alive. The voices he's created fit exactly with the personalities of the characters. He has done an awesome job in these books. I'm now a fan and will search out other books that he narrates.
The scene where Owen walks in on Justine & Willie B is off the charts! I laughed out loud while driving down the road! Then I cried!
I'm a Nora Roberts fan and love these romantic story's the best.
I HAVE READ OR LISTENED TO MOST OF NORA ROBERTS MANY BOOKS AND THE INN BOONSBOROUGH TRILOGY IS MY FAVOURITE AND THE ONE THAT I RECALL THE MOST DETAIL OF. I LIKE THE FACT THAT NORA ROBERTS PAIRED THE VERY ORGANISED OWEN, WHO ON PAPER WOULD HAVE MATCHED PERFECTLY WITH HOPE WITH THE OUTGOING AND A LITTLE DITSY BUT NONETHELESS HARDWORKING AVERY.
I always enjoy books about first loves and so I really enjoyed this story of Owen and Avery. They are an opposites attracts kind of couple. He plans everything out and Avery is very spirited and fun-loving. Just loved the Montgomery family. Who doesn't love hunky construction workers with tool belts? Book 2 of this trilogy did not disappoint me. Can't wait to read the 3rd book next.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
I really don't know...this trilogy revolves around 3 brothers restoring an inn and their love lives. It just didn't do it for me - maybe the plot lines were a bit to predictable. All 3 were tedious.
I've been really excited about The Trouble Shooter Series by Suzanne Brockman...they are action packed but the language may be too strong for most Nora Roberts readers.
A lot of the pizza shop & inn details - it was too detailed and bored me.
I'm usually a big Nora Roberts fan...but I really had to force myself to finish this series.
I love books but dont have time to read them as much anymore. Listening to Audibles since Day One I've been become an addict...I love books that are mainstream popular, whether it be fiction or non-fiction. I'll usually pick my books by reviews. Come check out my reviews to find your next favorite audible!
So in book one, the next always, we met Clare and Avery. In the first book, Clare got her happily every after ending and now its time for Avery's, Still some continuing character development with the main characters, getting to know Lizzy the ghost a little more and really digging deep into Avery and Owen's character and possible love connection. Like book one, Mr. Andrews continues to narrate and its almost like its not another book, but another part 3 to the first book. Enjoy!
