Book Review: The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts

The Last Boyfriend (Inn BoonsBoro, #2)The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My main issue with this book, as with The Next Always, was the whole ghost element. I would have preferred a purely historical discovery rather than a paranormal entity lingering at the inn. Ditch the ghost and spend more time with Owen and Avery. Their interaction is what I wanted most. Their lifelong friendship, mutual childhood crushes, adult romance - SWEET! The brotherly conversations, and the "girl talk" were very entertaining. Owen's reaction to finding his mother and Willy B. "together" was perfect! The gum ball machine ring; adorable!

Based on Ryder's behavior around Hope in the first two books, I've got a feeling the third book, The Perfect Hope, is going to be the most gratifying!

I already saw Ryder and Hope's story as the big hit of the Trilogy on The Next Always.

But I'm enjoying TLB more than I expected and first reviews suggested. Somehow Avery and Owen story was more natural than the first one. Even now that we see Clare and Beck story it still misses some spark that you can see with A&O.

But I'm really holding for Ryder's.
