Published by: Penguin

The historic hotel in BoonsBoro, Maryland, has endured war and peace, changing hands, even rumored hauntings. Now it's getting a major facelift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect of the family, Beckett's social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there's another project he's got his eye on: the girl he's been waiting to kiss since he was fifteen...
The Last Boyfriend is the second novel in the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy by Nora Roberts. Set in Maryland these small town tales share the lives of the Montgomery brothers and their women. In this installment we learn Owen and Avery’s story. Filled with romance, a ghost and small town characters that you will come to love, this novel is sure to delight the romance lover in you. While Roberts does a great job of making sure each book can be read as standalone, I recommend reading them in order. New to this series? Check out my review of book one The Next Always here.
The Montgomery boys are almost ready to open the inn and have been working on the renovations to Beckett’s house in anticipation of his wedding to Clare. Hope the new Inn keeper moves in and Lizzy the resident ghost makes several appearances. She pushes Avery and Owen together and they share a steamy kiss. Both are shocked and afterwards things are awkward when Owen keeps saying, “ Okay.” Owen’s mother surprises him and I got quite a few chuckles from it. Avery is dealing with her own issues and dreams of opening a pub. The romance is sweet and a bit complicated but in typical Roberts fashion it was sweet and enjoyable.
I recommend the Inn BoonsBoro trilogy to fans of small-town romance and swoon-worthy good boys. While The Next Boyfriend wasn’t my favorite I still enjoyed the tale and will be picking up book three. Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors for her contemporary romances, paranormal romances and her mystery series under the alias J.D. Robb.
