Book Review: The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts

Series: Inn BoonsBoro #2
Author: Nora Roberts
Release Date: May 1st 2012
Publisher: Berkeley
Age: Adult
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 loved the first book of the series, The Next Always, so I was waiting impatiently for The Last Boyfriend.

Owen is a cute guy. He's relaxed, fun, and likes Avery. They have been friends since forever, so it's logic that they take it to the next level. But both of them are very busy and organized, and when they seem to be letting they guard down and finally deciding to be together, Avery receives the surprise of her life.

I liked their story, it was very sweet and cozy. But I didn't loved it, probably because I wanted Avery and Owen to be more decided, not so scared about their relationship. I felt like every aspect was planned, and although I like plans, I think love most of the times comes a nice surprise.

But still, I like the Inn BoonsBoro series and it was great to read again about the family. Owen and Avery were a cute couple, and I liked that they were friends before falling in love. I definitely recommend The Last Boyfriend if you are looking for a sweet and heart warming romance.


  1. One day one day :) But I think I will start with that Bride? series cos the library has it

  2. Is it weird that I have never read a Nora Roberts book ?
    I've seen tons of her books at my local library but I've never bothered to pick up any.
    This one looks like a cute romance book. I like how they were friends before. It's too bad that you didn't love the story, but atleast you enjoyed it! :D
    Great review, Gaby :)
