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)
Yes, in fact this is the first book by Nora Roberts that I have not enjoyed.
The book felt like it was being forced to completion. I finished it because Nora Roberts wrote it, otherwise I would have stopped after the first hour.
Yes, in fact I kept listening because the narration was good enough to make me think the story would get better.
The story concept certainly had merit, but the ghost seemed to be an after thought.
I bought this for my wife thinking this would be a good introduction to audio books. She stopped listening after the first hour.
I would listen to this entire series again. I was able to really visualize the characters. I loved it. I would recommend this series.
Lizzy, love the way she gets all the characters together.
It is funny listening to a man do a woman's voice. But he did a great job.
Yes, almost. I tried to hold off listening to it because I wanted to drag it out. Was wonderful.
I so enjoy Audible...helps me get my to-do list accomplished.
I fell in love with the characters in the book. I felt committed and vested after listening to the first book. The personalities made me laugh and were so relatable
All of it...especially loved Lizzy!
Can't say enough about MacLeod...he must be one hunk of a man to be able to capture the rough and tough and sweet and tender! Amazing!
Avery...loved her...I want to be more like her...strong yet not full of herself...so real.
Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors. Her books are enjoyable in both the reading and audible formats.
How the book told the story of both characters and how their lives intertwined through out all of their lives and how the ghost helped them along
I love all the characters but Lizzie is a great one
yes but I couldn't
New to Audible, but already addicted.
The love story.
Beckett. Enjoyed his discoveries of how much he could want and love another.
I did like the narrator.
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.
