Which is more unlikely?
Meeting a single, straight, reasonably attractive, willing-to-commit man?
Or discovering a secret cache of magic books?

For good-girl Jane Madison, neither has a shot in hell of coming true -- until the day she finds a hidden room . . .

Now she's done a bit of experimenting and found a spell that makes her irresistible to men -- even those who have previously ignored her. And another that turns a cat into her witch's familiar (a snarky, critical, self-absorbed man -- pretty much a typical male). Though her impulsive acts of magic have brought a warder (sexy, grouchy, elusive and determined to stop her from using magic) down on her, Jane's not willing to let go of this fantastic new life.

Though she wonders about having things that aren't "real," she's having too much fun to stop. After all, no one ever said being a witch was easy!

I picked this book up because I liked the title

What I liked the Most? Neko is hilarious!

What I liked the Least? The jumping around made my head hurt

Review: I get it “Plain” Jane Madison (overworked & underpaid librarian at a little known research library in DC proper) gets some bad news – her salary is getting cut by 25% and some good news – move into the cottage on property. And from there all sorts of hilarity follows - an insanely funny gay familiar, handsome warder randomly showing up, best friend who owns a bakery and has the snarkiest first dates, and of course running around naked in the woods of Connecticut!

I liked “Imaginary Boyfriend” much better in theory than practice, but “mojito therapy” reminds me so much of my own “midnight margaritas” with my best friend it’s not even funny.

This book is a lot of character building. Creating everything from scratch – I’m holding judgment until I’ve read # 2.

Recommended to: I’m holding off on a recommendation until I try another book – this one was wishy washy

Best Quote: "Even if I do have some power, I'm not a witch. One—I don't wear a pointy hat. Two—I use a broom only for sweeping. Three—I've never even owned a cauldron."
