Teaser Tuesday: The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week my teaser comes from The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts. This is the second book in the Inn Boonsboro trilogy which tells the story of the three Montgomery brothers - Beckett, Ryder, and Owen -- finding love while restoring an old bed-and-breakfast in their small town.

This episode concentrates on Owen and his budding relationship with Avery McTavish. They have know each other all of their lives. In fact, Avery proposed to him when she was six.

"They were engaged." Grinning now, Clare toasted Avery.

"What?" Hope's dark chocolate eyes rounded in shock. "When? Why didn't I know this? This is huge."

"We were kids. I think I was five--almost six. Our fathers were tight, so we had a lot of activities together. I had a crush on him."

"So she proposed to him--or more she announced they were going to get married when they grew up."

"Aw, that's so cute."
I just love Nora's books. No one writes strong loving families as well as she does. And, I love the way she writes friendships too.
