Tamar Rosenfeld has been in love with New York Leopards linebacker Abraham Krasner since they were twelve years old. She'd always considered it destiny that they'd end up together…until Abe was drafted and she professed her feelings in a moment of blind excitement. The sting of his rejection was like nothing she'd ever felt before, and it's nothing she'll ever forget.
Older and wiser, Tamar has landed a dream job as a reporter for one of New York's premier athletic websites. Determined to stop being the safe, boring girl she's felt like for most of her life, Tamar makes a list of all the things she wants to do and see in her new city, and Getting Over Abraham is priority number one.
But destiny has finally chosen to interfere. Just as Tamar's decided to move on, Abe's realized she's the only woman for him. When he confides the truth, Tamar has to decide if she can put her crush behind her, or take a chance on the very man who's been holding her back all these years.

Playlist From the Author
Okay. I’ll admit it. I listened to a lot of Frozen while writing second half of Imaginary Lines. I’m not even sorry. I also listened to Jesus Christ Superstar, which is kind of weird when you realize the book’s about two Jewish kids. I also listened to the soundtrack from the TV show Reign, which I think was probably pitched as Mary Queen of Scots meets Urban Outfitters. I heart it so hard. Reign actually has some really nice atmospheric music, at least in the first episode. I give it two ears up.

Follow by Crystal Fighters
Back To You by Twin Forks
Scotland by The Lumineers (Not on Spotifly)
