Blurb from Goodreads
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.
I also liked Tamar and Abraham and their relationship. Despite the unpleasant turn down from Abe after Tamar told him she loves him, they can be friend again and being honest to each other. On their second chance relationship, there isn’t any misunderstood or whatsoever. It makes it less drama in the story than its prequel but it also shows that they are committed to each other and put their relationship on their top priority. That’s what I liked about their relationship. They’re honest and trust each other.
However, I felt first half of the book is really slow. And since I can see what will become the climax of the story, I kept waiting when Tamar will publish her story that can “rock” her relationship with Abe. And when it finally happens, it felt too short for something big that Tamar caused. I hope it will continue in next book of New York Leopold series, because I think Tamar is a whisleblower in this big NFL case.
This isn’t my favorite story from New York Leopold series. Rachel and Ryan is still my favorite, but it’s still an enjoyable reading. I can’t wait for other Leopold story, Dylan maybe?
