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….

“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)

    Story
    "Love this family!"

    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.

    "I like Nora Roberts but..."
    What would have made The Last Boyfriend better?

    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.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Last Boyfriend?

    All the cursing, especially the f bombs.


    Any additional comments?

    Nora: Please clean up your books so that people other than the bottom feeders can enjoy your books again. Your friend in Brunswick.

    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.

    "Again......I NEED a MOVIE made from this series!"
    Would you listen to The Last Boyfriend again? Why?

    I am on my 6th listening of this series. I am so into the characters, I swear I could be them!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ALL the characters are AWESOME!


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    If you could take any character from The Last Boyfriend out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Justine, because of her style and wisdom

    MAKE ME A MOVIE!

    What did you love best about The Last Boyfriend?

    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.


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

    The entire series is great. The only problem I have is that there is only three books! I want more of the Montgomery boys!


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "First Loves"

    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.

    "Opening the Inn"

    As the Inn is prepared to open, Owen falls for Avery. Personally, I found Avery to be a bit of a "nippy sweetie" as we say; and I would have liked Owen to fall for someone else! Ha! However, the story continues, leaving way for the final segment and brother to find a mate.

    Where does The Last Boyfriend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As it's the first I've listened to it can only be prime.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Avery, she is such a complex character.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No


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

    Yes, but I become engrossed in many books and want to keep going.


    Any additional comments?

    Whilst I enjoyed the book and the reading I feel that a female voice, reading the women's parts, would improve the audio. A man is limited in how many different female voices he can produce.

    "Great ending to the trilogy"
    What did you like most about The Last Boyfriend?

    The way the story brings together the characters from the previous 2 books and the third girl gets the third Montgomery brother


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ryder Montgomery, as he is a grumpy guy with 2 brothers who have both got the girl but he cannot see what's happening to him.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    He has a great voice for audio books and made the stories very easy to listen to.


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

    Both, the characters draw you in the their lives and there are some emotional chapters and some comic conversations.


    Any additional comments?

    Nora Roberts is a master at stories like this.

    "Another amazing audible journey"

    Another brilliant story from Nora Roberts and superbly narrated by Macleod Andrews - he is fast becoming my favourite narrator of all time. Where most people listen to music on their commute to work - I have listened to Owen MacGomery fall in love with Avery and the inns and outs of the MacGomery family as they complete the Inn in Boonsboro. I feel I know them all! Have already bought and started on Book 3.
