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.
Wow, I never realized how hard it would be to cast my own books.
I’ve watched people cast the heroes and heroines of my books, and I’ve occasionally dreamt up casts for my favorite titles, but I’ve never done it for my own. Probably because it’s almost impossible to find an actor who looks just right compared to your mental image.
Still, I took a stab at it, and I’m pretty pleased with the results! I’m also now doubly impressed with all the casting so many reviewers do.
Tamar Rosenfeld - Alison Brie
Tamar’s friendly and smart with a slightly dry sense of humor – and she’s almost literally the girl next door. Actress Alison Brie seemed like a pretty good fit. Also, I guess she’s on this show called Community? You might have heard of heard of it.
Abraham Krasner - John Gallagher Jr.
Ironically, actor John Gallagher Jr.’s pretty famous for playing a producer in The Newsroom, while in Imaginary Lines it’s the heroine who’s a journalist. But hey, he can probably pull off being an NFL player, no? He definitely has the great smile down.
Tanya Jones – Sandra Bullock
Everyone needs a little star power, right? Bullock would be perfect as Tanya, the editor Tamar goes to work for in New York. She already has the tough-ass boss thing down from The Proposal, and knows the football scene well from The Blind Side. Plus, I love her.
