Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

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.

Boy this was a first-rate read. It was very well written, with both interesting and intelligent characters. Nikki and Bryon were great for each other.

Although it was silly of Nikki to "pretend", I certainly felt her pain. Single women over 30 are often coerced (by nosey busybodies) into feeling that being unmarried is worse than contracting leprosy. LOL

I especially loved the ending. This is a wonderful love story. I look forward to reading Sheila's next novel.

My Invisible Husband
By Sheila Goss
Book Review
By
Keisha Matthews

I had never heard of this book, I was unfamiliar with the author and I was reluctant to read the book, because the cover reminded me of a Harlequin novel cover. However, I decided to delve in because, of course, "you can never judge a book by its cover."
I was immediately taken in by the personality of the main character, Nikki (Nicolette Montana) and the predicament she found herself in. Nikki lived in the Dallas area, working for an ad agency. She was a professional woman in her early thirties and a lover of shoes - this fact alone had me, since I to, am a shoe lover. It was this love of shoes and her mostly self-imposed situation that were the foundation of the book.
Nikki began to bow to the perceived pressure her family and friends put on her to settle down and get married. Her brilliant solution to this problem was to stage a fake wedding in Las Vegas and just pretend to be married to get everyone to leave her alone. On her way back from Vegas, she sat next to a very handsome man on the plane who accidentally spilled his drink on her favorite pair of shoes. They exchanged numbers so he could replace the stained shoes and that was where it all began.
Byron Matthews turned out to be a professional, extremely handsome, single, homeowner, who was ready to find the love of his life so he could settle down. He was smitten with Nikki and agreed to help fool her family. They even moved in together to pull off this elaborate lie. But as always, it's the unexpected that makes a story. The two fell in love, but encountered several hurdles and found the secrets they lived day to day almost destroyed the most perfect love they had ever known and had for each other.
