Nikki Montana is a single 34-year-old account executive that is tired of her family pressuring her about getting married. Nikki decides to fake a Las Vegas wedding to please her family. On her return trip to Dallas, Nikki meets the sexy Byron Matthews on the plane. She is already too caught up in her web of deceit and now everyone wants to actually meet this mysterious new husband. Not having any other options, Nikki enlists the help of Byron to play as her husband. Will Byron go along with Nikki's crazy plan or will he just walk away?

My Invisible Husband is a widely entertaining novel by Shelia M. Goss. Goss brought a unique and fast-paced storyline. I loved the drama and the humor in this novel. Some of the dialogue had me laughing out loud. This story will definitely have readers flipping the pages. My Invisible Husband is delightful and uproariously funny.

Format: Paperback
Nicolette "Nikki" Montana has everything a single female wants - the dream job, comfortable home, sports car, shapely figure, and a personality everyone loves. The one thing she doesn't have is a husband. Nikki is sick and tired of people asking when she is going to settle down and get married. She wants to take back her life and be able to focus on herself and take her job to the next level. After careful deliberation she decides to sneak off and marry an "invisible husband" in Las Vegas. Nikki has it all planned out until she meets Byron.

In this game of charades she fools everyone. Her co-workers plan her a bridal shower, family set up a welcome home congratulations dinner, and her girlfriends arrange a bachlorette party. In a feverish rush to cover all the lies she has told, she decides to let Byron in on the "invisible husband" story. Byron buys into it so he can be closer to Nikki. The one thing he fails to reveal is his psycho ex-girlfriend, Tara. Does Bryon really love Nikki or is he trying to get back at Tara?

My Invisible Husband flows quickly from one scene to the next, entertaining the reader with comic relief and "no she didn't" thoughts. Even though the entire story is based on a lie, morality is the lesson learned. The character development and interaction was down-to-earth while the story line did have areas that were a bit unbelievable. There are a few grammatical errors and confusion surrounding Nikki's name (Nicolette doesn't show up until page 55). My Invisible Husband is drama filled and certain to keep you reading.

I am so pleased with My Invisible Husband. This is one of the best novels I've read in a long time. As I read it, I saw each scene playing before me like a lifetime movie. Sheila Goss has done an excellent job in bringing to life Nikki and Byron's story. I didn't want it to end.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the plot of this story can be found anywhere in life. Some of the characters in here will have you shaking your head from left to right. I could see women & men making up these types of stories to keep family and friends off their backs about being single. I know some parts of the story were to far fetch; but it's just fiction.

From front to back we have thirty-four-year-old Nikki Montana who thinks she's created a foolproof scheme when she invents an imaginary groom, but a plan this good could only backfire... On the plane ride back to Dallas from her make-believe whirlwind Las Vegas wedding, she meets her true prince. Talk about bad timing! Handsome and successful, Byron Matthews is everything she's ever wanted in a guy, and then some (Who doesn't?). Later on in the story Nikki's family wants to meet her mystery husband and face the facts.

Shelia M. Goss did a great job with her debut novel and I'm looking forward in reading "Roses are thorns and Violets are true". This book was well written and clearly states that God wants us to have patience and not handle his business, but to have faith. I loved the romance between Nikki and Byron. He was loving and willing to take a risk on being happy -- no matter how big the gamble was. It speaks volumes about how women are pressured to accept anything from a man (and what lengths they will go to) -- just so they can say they are married. Recommend to those who need a good book to read.

Format: Paperback
Shelia Goss goes to the extreme, showing what one woman will do to get her family and friends out of her personal business. Nicolette Montana "Nikki" is a thirty four year old account executive that fakes her own marriage to please her family. When her fake marriage begins to back fire, Nikki ends up pulling a helpless bystander in to the mix of things. Nikki meets Byron Matthews on a plane where he wastes his coffee all over a pair of her shoes. As the story unfolds Byron Bryon goes along with Nikki's idea becoming her invisible husband but Byron has plans of his own. Bryon & Nikki go through extreme drama trying to pull off the perfect fake marriage. When things get sticky Bryon has to step up to the plate and make things right.

Shelia Goss takes you on an incredible ride through Nikki & Byron's fake marriage into their future that holds them and their family together.
