Book Review: Her Imaginary Husband by Lia London

Nikki Fallon has just gotten her dream job: teaching high school English and literature. It's a big change from the deli counter where she's been working and fending off advances from Flip-Flop Man (you'll see when you read it).  Nikki has been in a dating slump, pretty much since high school, so when she meets Will, Coach of the football team, she's pretty impressed by his strong pecs and alluring cologne. Problem is that Will is coming off a bad divorce and is a bit of a womanizer. Nikki panics when Will comes on to her and her imaginary husband is born.
This is a sweet and funny romance about a shy woman sticking her toe into the relationship pool. It doesn't help that the campus cop, Officer Ross, is also attractive and genuinely nice.  There's a nice subset of characters: her best friend, Janna, the other teachers at the school, and above all her students. This is a funny book, but it has its moments of seriousness as Nikki wends her way through the new and often bewildering maze of teaching high school students.
If you're looking for a quick read, pick up a copy of Her Imaginary Husband. You won't regret it.
