Not Quite YA today (Adult Contemporary Romance book review) The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts

The Last Boyfriend (Inn BoonsBoro, #2)
Good Reads Summary
The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts

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…

My Thoughts
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

"You're a moron." In pity, Ryder shook his head. "You're supposed to be the smart one. You're the smart one. Beckett's the nice one, I'm the good looking one..."

And that just about sums the brothers up nicely. And I still can't stop grinning. The first one had was all nice and sweet; this one had me laughing from how cute and stupid the pair of them could be. I love the maybe's and could be's and jumping to conclusions that went on. I love how perfectly matched the two were mainly because they're so different. Heck, I even love the moments of him being a moron all because she could call him one! So danged sweet! But it's not all sweet and funny all the time, though it mostly is that... the girl's got more baggage she's lugging around, and does some pretty stupid things because of the same. So it's the two of them being so good at what they each do, but screwing things up between them at the most inopportune moment... even if they don't mean to.

I must stop grinning now except I doubt that that's going to happen anytime soon. Especially since I've got the third book lined up... I can't get enough of this stuff.  Watch me zip through this series.
