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)

    "So Slow...Lack of Plot and Dragging Narration."

    The book lacks tension, aside from the ghost which is not mentioned in the blurb. I avoid ghost books and I enjoy romance novels that have something that drives the plot. This tells the slow boring story of old friends who start dating and run into zero bumps or hurdles. Multiply this by the incredibly slow narration, and you've got for one boring book. In fact, I fell asleep twice while listening to this book.

    I'm really disappointed because I usually really like Nora Roberts, and in theory, I enjoyed the characters, but that's not enough to make me ever listen to this story again.

    Story
    "I want to live in BoonsBoro"

    I loved revisiting the BoonsBoro crew. The conflict in this story was less dramatic than the one in The Next Always, the first book, but it was a perfect conflict for Owen and Avery. There were some great laugh out loud moments, mostly due to the great narration by MacLeod Andrews. I can't wait to listen to the conclusion of this series!

    Story
    "Young Love is the Only Love for these Two"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Avery is my favorite character of all the books in the triology. She is the same sassy, out-spoken, honest friend in every book. She is strong willed and vulnerable at the same time.


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    This book literally made me laugh out loud and it had a lot to do with the narrator. Such as Owen being the neat, tidy, control-freak brother finding his mother in a lip-lock with Avery's dad (both single) and his reaction to it. His shocked, can't form a coherent thought reaction and his mother's calm, 'this is no big deal' demeanor was hilarious.


    Any additional comments?

    A great continuation of the BoonsBoro triology. Although there wasn't much interaction, in a romantic way, between Avery and Owen in the first book "The Next Always' you could tell there was an under current of some kind. Especially, in one scene where she tries to protect Claire and instead of calling out Beckett's name, who Claire is involved in, she calls out Owen's name. I love the joke of Owen being Avery's first boyfriend when it was a game and how their friendship keeps them close, so they can become the couple they do in this story.

    "Brothers"

    These guys sound just like a trio of brothers I know. Love the give and take between them.

    "Good book, good narrator"

    I wasn't sure I was going to like the narration, but I did.... and loved this book. Love the romance and the family. It ended perfectly.

    Story
    "Ok but nothing special"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story was interesting, but I hated the modern story-line and the gratuitous profanity.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

    Possibly. I'm interested in what happens to the characters but I don't want to listen to the narrator butcher the women's voices and inflections.


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

    He did an awful job on the woman's voices. He was fine with the male voice.


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

    I don't really care at this point.

    "Just ok"
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or MacLeod Andrews?

    I have several Nora Roberts that I absolutely LOVE, so yes on Nora Robert. No on MacLeod Andrews.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Just ok with male voices (in a limited amount) but Absolutely BRUTAL on women and children voices. Nasal whining voices on every woman and child. Just BRUTAL


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

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Only half way thru this book and not sure yet I can finish. Authors, if you have any input on narrators, PLEASE think about how your story is being narrated or mutilated.
