To avoid the too-quick advances from the hunky football coach, rookie English teacher, Nikki Fallon, pretends to be married. But she second guesses her decision as things heat up between them. Then the campus cop proves to be much more interesting than he first appeared. How long can Nikki keep up the charade? And which man will win her affections?
Not being much of a romantic, I don’t indulge in sugary reads too often. And it is sugary. Nikki is the perfect teacher, every major character communicates regularly with playful humor, and even the worst of the students come around in the end. It’s definitely feel-good. But having been a teacher myself, so many of the scenarios were familiar. And nostalgic. And the story’s just plain cute. Even I, unromantic that I am, found myself cheering for Nikki’s happily ever after.
If you enjoy light, quirky romance, or if you just need a break from heavier stuffy, this one is a fun, easy, CLEAN, well-paced read.
The story begins with Nikki Fallon during her last few days as a deli counter worker. She is happy to leave the deli job and start her full-time career as a new teacher at the local high school. Once she starts her new job as a teacher, two eligible bachelors at the school take a keen interest in her marital status. Having been broken-hearted before, Nikki decides to wear a wedding band and tell everyone that she is married to avoid any attention from these new men in her life. But, of course, that initial lie leads to other lies and Nikki is left juggling stories and trying not to let the truth come out. From one hilarious moment to the next, Nikki fumbles through the first few weeks of school and learns the ropes of being a new, young teacher in a school filled with teenage trials and tribulations. But in the end, a positive outcome is had by everyone.
I absolutely adored this story and could see it at a movie. The characters were believable and I enjoyed the journeys all of them led me on in the pages of this book. I loved the ending!
Ms. London weaves a great, fun, sweet story and I look forward to reading more from this very talented author.
This book is light, breezy, easy to read and enjoy. It's nice to laugh about Nikki's mishaps and appreciate the confidence she develops through the story. The hardest thing about lies is living with the story you create for yourself. Loved this book.
As I do with a good number of the books I read, I jumped into Her Imaginary Husband by author Lia London blurb-less, preferring not to know beforehand what this romantic comedy is about. Not wholly unfamiliar with this author, I fully expected comedy that would actually make me laugh (that is, literally laugh out loud), and I wasn't disappointed.
Beyond the comedy, the heroine's role as a teacher makes way for some smart and compassionate points. As Nikki's values and ideals don't exempt her from some raw and conflicting emotions, her character is believable, with moments like one when she feels "flattered, cheap, attracted, and repulsed" all at once.
A little more backstory would have eased me into my grasp on Nikki's character more smoothly, and there's a key question concerning her motives that I didn't feel reached a definitive answer. Also, the timing of events in an episode toward the end was somewhat jarring to me. But something quite human, empathetic, and passionate in that episode made me throw my hands up with an inner "Amen!" So...
And, yes, I put the book down safely before I threw my hands up.
I'd recommend this rom-com to anyone looking for an amusing read, clean with a little steam, sweet but not sappy, with, as I mentioned, smartness and compassion to boot.
