 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…
From the moment that I discovered romance books and Nora she has always been a favorite of mine and I have always loved her stories. Some I have liked more than others but she has always delivered for me. Especially as her books are always centered around family. Whether its a family they are born to or one of their own making.
When I read the first book in this series The Next Always I had a feeling that this was going to be one of THOSE series for me. You know the ones I’m talking about, one that when you are looking for a nice warm love story with no major drama. That is going to be how this series for me.
Owen and Avery have known each other their entire lives. Their dad’s were best friends and except for a brief time when they were kids they have never thought of each other as anything more than friends. That is until they share a very explosive kiss.
Watching as these Avery and Owen go from being friends to lovers was really nice. They didn’t rush into it. they took their time and thought about how it would impact not only them but their families.
One of my favorite scenes is when Owen decides to throw a party at the last minute, and Avery laughs at him. This is not Owen he has spreadsheets when he plans a party, but he wants the time with Avery.  It’s really sweet and Avery being Avery helps him out, because she wants the same thing to spend time with him.
There is also the rest of their families and the secondary stories that Nora is famous for having regarding her secondary cast. We get more of Becket and Clare, Hope and Ryder are still butting heads and there is something going on with Avery’s dad and Owen’s mom.
Overall I have to say that this book lives up to everything I expect from one of Nora’s books.
