Review “The Last Boyfriend,” by Nora Roberts
Avery has loved Owen for as long as she can remember. When she was a kid, she had a major crush on him and followed him around, going as far as to announce that they were engaged. Ever a sweet boy, Owen gave little Avery a pink plastic ring out of a gum ball machine (altogether now, “awwww”). But that was just kids’ stuff.
They’ve been close friends for ages and a constant in each other’s lives since childhood. But Avery and Owen begin to look at each other differently after the Inn’s resident (and somewhat meddlesome) ghost arranges a kiss between the two. Can Avery and Owen explore this new attraction without ruining their friendship?
This was a sweet and entertaining book in the Inn Boonsboro trilogy, about the warmth of a friendship growing into a deeper love. This book has everything a 2nd book in a trilogy should have – we get to revisit a bit with Clare and Beckett (who are happily planning a wedding and expansion of their family), watch a romance bloom between Avery and Owen, and smirk when Hope and Ryder eye each other from afar.
5 out of 5 stars for “The Last Boyfriend.” 🙂
After I put this book down, I immediately picked up the next one (“The Perfect Hope“). Can’t wait to learn more about the Inn’s resident ghost and read Hope’s story… I do, after all, love it when the hero and heroine don’t like (or at least, pretend to not like) each other in the beginning. 🙂 Should be fun. 😉
Happy reading to all!
