The Perfect Hope
Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out - with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He's surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a toolb...more
Avery's explanation when Hope tells her how rude he is to her. (And, she's not over-reacting. The guy is so rude that I would have told him to f-off long ago.)

The Perfect Hope is by far the weakest book in this series. I just didn't feel anything for Hope & Ryder, they were rather bland. I also didn't care about "Lizzie" and her backstory.
Nora Roberts is who she is and you know the kind of story you're gonna get. She's literary cotton candy and that's why I like her books. Nora Roberts sets the mood and creates a homey( is that a word?) and warm atmosphere.
If you like Nora Roberts or warm and fl ...more
As I read, I couldn't help thinking that this book is so aspirational. The 3 heroines are beautiful. Intelligent, strong and accomplished. The 3 heroes are strong, skilled, handsome. They are all young people and most of them own successful b ...more
Haja finais felizes nos livros ☺
Há dois momentos no livro que são de destaque e que comprovam mesmo o amor de Ryder pela Hope, se ainda houvesse dúvidas mas também acabam por mostrar um outro lado do Ryder: um lado mais doce e não tão bruto ou teimoso.
Não acho que seja a melhor trilogia da Nora mas é uma trilogia boa para quem nunca leu nada da autora. Gostava que as personagens da Nora não fossem todos perfeitos e bonitos. No fim tudo ...more
Ry captó mi atención desde el principio con ese borderío y definitivamente es mi hermano favorito al igual que este libro para mi fue el mejor de la trilogía.
La pareja es más entretenida, divertida, saltan chispas. Y por fin se desvela todo el misterio de Lizzy.
He disfrutado de esta trilogía sencilla, divertida y entretenida.

In the final book of the Boonsboro Trilogy, the focus is no longer on building the Inn Boonsboro, but rather a couple different storylines take center stage. The first being the obvious romance that’s been building between Ryder and Hope from the moment she stepped into town and was hired as the inn keeper. The ghost, Lizzy, stills plays a major role as her story gets wrapped up. It wouldn’t be a book in this trilogy if the Montgomery men w ...more
Especially this year my too high, maybe even unreasonable expectations have ruined quite a few promising books for me, so I was hopeful and anxious at the same time when I started reading.
So like I said, sometimes they can ruin everythi ...more

SUMMARY (50 words or less)
I think this is my favorite book of the series slightly edging out Beckett’s story. Riley is just soooo hot. Anywho, this book has a lot more tension and build up, I think that also adds to the story. Very good. I likey.
I loved the whole ghost story thing and the conclusion to it. But I also loved how it was interwined with Ryders and Hopes story.
Ryder and Hope were wonderful the chemistry was awesome and I totally enjoyed reading about them.
The book left me with this wonderful cozy feeling!
The Perfect Hope finds us back in Boonsboro, Maryland and engaged in the in life (and romantic entanglements) of the final Montgomery brother, Ryder, and the sophisticated innkeeper, Hope. Ryder is a rough and tumble construction worker who is slightly annoyed by the Perfect Hop ...more
Despite that, I've generally enjoyed her trilogies. Chesapeake Bay and the Key trilogies are some of my favorites. The Bride quartet was also really good, and I had high hopes for the Inn Boonsboro series, but it just fell flat.
The Perfect Hope suffered from some of the same nonsense as The Last Boyfriend. T ...more
Why read this story when I know going into it that I'm not going to enjoy it? It's the completist in me, I guess. I do enjoy Nora Roberts and I have read all of her books. I just find this particular series incredibly self-indulgent as it focuses around Robert's family businesses. I may have enjoyed it more if these were fictitious but not by much I suspect.
I've never been happy with the jargon heavy stories like the Bride Quartet or this series and while I enjoy home improvement shows...watc ...more

Then after reading one chapter, it became another chapter, then another and another, and you get the idea.
I could not stop reading this. I loved this as much as I did with the first. The second one I liked but I think out of the couples, I liked B ...more
Mejoró bastante, pero sigo pensando que le falta algo.. No hay intimidad, y no hablo de sexo, sino de momentos juntos.. enamorándose. De verdad. Porque luego me salen que están locos el uno con el otro y yo todavía sigo enganchada en los libros anteriores cuando no se querían ni ver. Y pensé que Ryder sería diferente. I mean no parecía tan tosco antes.
Los conflictos son casi los mismos que en los otros libros, si esa es su forma de decirme que son la pareja perfecta porque afrontan las adver ...more

Aunque terminó cerrando casi todo, no me hubiera molestado leer más libros sobre Boonsboro. Una saga genial y muchas ganas de seguir leyendo a la autora.
This book was about the "bad boy" of the three brothers, Ryder and the keeper of the Inn BoonsBoro.
Three brothers and three friends living in the same town. The brothers are in construction/engineering and the three friends each run a business, a book store, a pizzeria and an Inn. With each book you get to live the life of each of the brothers.
In this particular book, Ryder, who does not conform as the others do and has a dog named Dumbass (D.A.) r ...more
think it is the best out of the three books. Not only is there a touching love story between Hope and Ryder, we get to finally find out who the ghost of the inn is and why she is haunting the place. One thing I loved about this trilogy was the banter and obvious affection between the brothers and their families. There are quite a few laugh out loud moments.
Ryder and Hope are such opposites that they really compliment each other. R ...more
