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)
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!
Yes. Very entertaining!
The narration. The story was good, but the narration made it great! It was narrated in such a way that made me laugh out loud to the point of not being able to stop.
When the son walked in on his Mother and family friend in the kitchen. Funny reaction!
American Dream, American Pie (mostly pizza but some fruit), work ethic, entrepreneurship, family values and interior design. I almost utilized Audible’s generous returns policy but I got into the story and stuck to it all through the trilogy. True romance.
I won’t get another Nora Roberts.
Nora lived this story.....there are details that she went thru building the hotel and gym.....Alot of sweat and tears.
I love audio books. The emotion in his voice is great.
No Last boyfriend works....it fits like a glove.
Love Nora's Books. Keep them coming Nora. I am waiting for the new Irish series.... Thanks again Nora....
A book you don't have to think much to listen. Just enjoyable
Language was offensive st times
This one is better than the first in the series for two reasons: very few kids voices for the narrator to screech (although there are a few), and fewer details about the inn because they were all in the first one. I still kept my player on 1 1/2 time though, as otherwise it drags. The story line from Avery's past adds more depth to this story I think. And the ghost continues to make it fun. Will be getting the last one in this series.
I'm addicted to Audible. May need an intervention!
I love this trilogy! I think the narrator has improved since book 1. If you like Nora Roberts, you will not be disappointed.
