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)

    "Anxiously waiting for Book 3 to come out in audio!"
    Where does The Last Boyfriend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm hooked on this trilogy! I would like it to move along a little bit faster but it is still romantically slow. I am anxiously waiting for the the third book!

    Story
    "Wonderful second book! Unexpected twists too."
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Boyfriend the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the performance of this book. The story was a great continuation of the first in the series, The Next Always, but stands on it's own too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Best? I think the twist that I will not reveal for the others who haven't experienced the story yet. Plus the secondary characters of Owen's mother and Avery's father.


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like hearing books performed by men. Mr. MacLeod's narration is a good cadence and tone. I think when I listen to a book I actually hear more of the story than when I just read it myself.


    Any additional comments?

    Very enjoyable performance. I look forward to more romance narrations from this performer.

    "Female narrator might have been better"
    Any additional comments?

    Great book. I always love the Nora Roberts' trilogies. But I wasn't a fan of the male narrator. I would definitely listen to another book narrated by him unless one of the two main characters is female. His narration of all of the male characters was wonderful and very easy to differentiate between each character. The female characters sounded silly and like audio characitures. The older the female, the worse it was. The main female character, Avery, was better than the rest but if she got emotional or excited she sounded juvenile. I do like Mr. Andrews' voice and look forward to hearing him narrate more but hope that his 'lady voices' gain the same depth he gave the male characters.

    "Some problems, but still enjoyable."
    Any additional comments?

    I thought long and hard about continuing this series because of the narration problems in the first book. However, this seems to be just a bit (just a wee bit) better though most of this sequel - until about 3/4 of the way through, and the narrator noticeably slows down again. This leads me to think that there may be a problem with the duplicating equipment rather than the narrator. This is just a supposition, as I haven't had the nerve to listen to any other book narrated by Mr. Andrews. However, running the playback at 1.5 speed seems to make it bearable.

    I love the town of Boonesboro. I went there on a couple of great meandering exploration trips several years ago. This is why I want to finish the series.. it brings back great memories.

    I was a bit disappointed with the story though.. it seemed rather tame and no... 'umph', that is usually present in Nora's books. This is a middle book though, and sometimes that happens. Getting to know Lizzy better, is nice.

    It is a nice book, just don't expect too much excitement or the normal Nora tension.

    "Loved this book, great series"

    I love this entire family of men and their Mom. As a mother of three grown sons of my own their relationships ring true.The women in the series are strong. The author really allows you to get to know all the characters in a meaningful way. I can't wait for the next book to see if Hope and Ryder will finally get together. Great narrator too.!

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

    I really enjoy the interactions of the brothers Montgomery.


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    McLeod Andrews brings the characters to life.


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

    I listen in the car wherever I go. This story made me wish I had a longer drive to work!

    "Even better than the first!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Boyfriend to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I love hearing the voices which helps me build a better picture of the characters.


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

    The CVS shopping trip was priceless!


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    I really liked that I didn't really notice that a man was doing the performance. Some men get funny about reading the love scenes but MacLeod Andrew;s read them with poise and grace.


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

    It was a fun book. I laughed and felt happy throughout most of the book!


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the first book in the series very much. Yet, this one was even better!

    "good story, now used to narrator"

    I've listened to almost 100 books -- many of them classics. This is my first Nora Roberts trilogy, and after reading the first book, I was looking forward to the second in the series.

    This was another good listen, a good romance. Not overly sappy. I find myself watching Audible to see when the third installment will be available. The stories are still somewhat predictable -- I think I know how the third story will go -- but I don't care. I'm still invested in the characters.

    I listened whenever I had even a few minutes to spare. I wanted to hear what happened next.

    For the first book, I had a little trouble with the narrator. He wasn't all that great with creating distinct women's voices. Same with the second book -- but I was expecting it and just accepted it because I want to listen to these stories. I've resigned myself to the fact that it'll be the same person narrating the third book as did the first two, and I'll just deal with it.

    It's all about strong, beautiful women and strong, handsome men -- all good, smart people.

    Yes, it's a basic romance where all ends happily, and yes -- it's a fun listen. Can't wait for the third installment!

    Loved book one. Book two did not disappoint. Looking forward to the third installment. I am a new Nora fan and am methodically listening to all of her work. She's the best.
