Publisher's 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 give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish....

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….

What the Critics Say

“No one writes relationships as well as Ms. Roberts, with the subtleties and quirkiness of the give-and-take of friendship and romance.” (Fresh Fiction)

    Well written and fast paced continuation of this trilogy. Realistic yet sweetly romantic and characters behave as real people. Liked it. Will continue w the series. Addresses the realities of relationships and the obstacles faced but in an entertaining manner that also adds some depth of insight and help in our world. Recommend. Good for driving.

    "Great narration"

    MacLeod Andrews does such a great job with these characters. His interpretation is perfect. I really don't think this series would work with a female narrator. I love the ghost and I love the characters. The hotel reminds me of one I go to one the Oregon Coast each winter. Nora Roberts gives enough hints about the next book, and wraps up enough about the last one to make it all very satisfying. The subplots are enjoyable in their own right. I look forward to volume 3!

    "Great Story"

    The narrator was just ok, but the story was so sweet and lovely that it didn't detract from my enjoyment. I laughed, I cried and I was glad I used my credit on this story. I am hoping that Hope and Ryder's story is as good as this one.

    "Horrible reader"
    What did you love best about The Last Boyfriend?

    Norah's characters always jump right out at you and grab your heart. I especially like being able to check in with the characters from the other titles in the series


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of MacLeod Andrews?

    Anyone but MacLeod Andrews. I almost quit listening to the book. I do not recall being annoyed with him in the previous book in the series but this time, his voice just rubbed me the wrong way. He makes some of the characters, especially Ryder, sound sinister. I am not sure what was different but he really ruined the story for me. I think he was trying to make Ryder sound macho but instead he came off sounding like the bad guy or a serial murderer....yuck and yuck. If Andrews reads the next book I am going to need to think long and hard about purchasing it in audio format.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Andrews should stick with suspense or mysteries and leave the romance titles to someone else.

    "Enjoyable, but not as good as the first book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this book. Love reading Nora's triologies!


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    I thought the performance was well done. He has a nice soothing voice.


    Any additional comments?

    Didn't like this one as much as the first as it didn't have the suspense element in it. Looking forward to the third book.

    "Disappointing and hard to understand."
    What did you like best about The Last Boyfriend? What did you like least?

    The follow up story was interesting.
    The male narrator was terribly confusing. No difference in the male voices or female voices. I found it hard to follow and hard to finish. You never knew who was speaking when! Story was shallow and boring. Very disappointed.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Okay


    What three words best describe MacLeod Andrews’s performance?

    Awful
    Never Again


    Could you see The Last Boyfriend being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, boring book would make boring movie.


    Any additional comments?

    Just disappointed. Nora Roberts books can be so good, but also can be so bad. Sometimes I wonder if she has someone else writing for her.

    "Nora Roberts came back"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Boyfriend the most enjoyable?

    Finally, a good love story without murder or something terrible happening. I love the feeling of this book and cannot wait for number 3.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Boyfriend?

    I love the family of people in this trilogy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love when he realizes that he loves her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and a book that you like to listen to more than twenty times.


    Any additional comments?

    I had almost given up on Nora Robert's books because of the murder series. I want a feel good love story that gives you a happy listen.

    "Book 2 is even better than Book 1"
    Where does The Last Boyfriend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love the narrator. The book comes to life.


    What other book might you compare The Last Boyfriend to and why?

    Next Always (Book 1).


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    Owen


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not expect to laugh so much. I had laugh out loud moments.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to the first book in the Trilogy and loved it but this one is even better, which really shocked me. Usually the first in a series is always the best. Can't wait to listen to the last book.
