Book Review - The Last Boyfriend: Book Two of the Inn Boonsboro Trilogy by Nora Roberts

About The Book:

A new novel of a shared past, a fresh start, and a lifetime of love.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts introduces you to the Montgomery brothers—Beckett, Ryder, and Owen—as they bring an intimate bed-and-breakfast to life in their hometown.
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 bust on his compulsive list-making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery McTavish...
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.

I am really enjoying this series from Nora Roberts.  A wonderful storyteller, Nora is at her best with this series, combining charming and romantic love stories with a fascinating look at the world of building renovations in a small town. The Montgomery brothers are handsome and talented, and love their momma - good qualities in a man!  And the ladies that they love are smart, creative and in need of a good, loving man, so it all works out well - eventually!  Did I mention the ladies are usually a bit stubborn too?

I love that Nora has based this series on the actual Inn Boonsboro, the bed-and-breakfast that she owns in Maryland. Just reading these stories makes me want to make an immediate reservation - maybe some day!

I highly recommend this series for anyone who loves a great story, and of course, for all fans of Nora Roberts' writing.
