I was very excited about this book, as I found the premise interesting. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a letdown. The characters were bland and the premise wandered around a lot. I also wish that we'd gotten a lot more substance to the whole "invisible husband" thing, seeing as it's the central point of the book, but it was barely explored. All in all, great idea, poor execution. By the end of it, I felt like it was merely an excuse to frame a lackluster romance.
