  • Geri Reads
    Tamar has loved Abe the moment he asked to dance during his Bar-Mitzvah. Their parents were friends so they were pretty inseparable until Abe got drafted into the NFL. Tamar knew she had to tell him how she feels before he leaves for training camp. Sadly, it didn't go exactly as she had hope. She got her broken and Abe left for New York without a second glance. Six years later, Tamar found herself bound for New York to accept a gig as a reporter ...

    Review also posted at Young Adult Hollywood.Actual Rating4.5 StarsImaginary Lines is by far my favorite installment from New York Leopards. It follows the story of Tamar who has been in love with linebacker Abe since forever. She’d always considered them as soul-mates till she professed her feelings and Abe rejected her. It’s something she never forgot! Now years later Tamar landed a great opportunity to work for one of New York’s infamous ...

    This was so great on every level!!!!!! I had forgotten how much I enjoy this series, and like, as much as I loved the last book in this series, this one was easily my favorite yet. I was in love with Tamar basically from the very start. The beginning part where she was talking about how she moved back home after graduating college and taught SAT classes and didn't feel like she was living up to her potential or whatever was super relatable for me...

    Imaginary Lines by Allison Parr, was admittedly a slow start for me. The first few chapters felt a bit off to me, and I was worried about how I would feel about the rest of the book. But then everything clicked into place, action started heating up, and as it turned out, I loved Tamar and Abe's story.The SweetThe romance between Tamar and Abe was great. Now, contrary to the blurb, I didn't really feel like there was a lot of drama where they were...

    Fine. Just fine. Not the best in the series and not the worst. My main problem with Imaginary Lines was that, in previous books, Abe was the most charming of characters, just begging for his own story. But when his turn finally came, this Abe felt like an entirely different beast, not nearly as charming or compelling as he was in previous installments. I struggled to want Tamar to achieve her lifelong crush. I simply felt she was worth more, dese...

    Allison Parr's New York Leopards NA series is an auto-buy for me, and this one didn’t disappoint – Abe and Tamar were charming, and there was more of both the NYC setting and football backdrop which made me fall in love with the series in the first place. I do think Allison Parr’s prose veers towards the purple on occasion, but the emotional impact more than makes up for that. However, I was frustrated by the handful of copy-editing errors ...

    Okay. I started this at 11.30 last night because Jess is a terrible influence and before I knew it it was 1.30am and I was finished.That's how much I loved this book. To the point where this is probably my favourite book in the series. I KNOW. I honestly can't think of something in this book that I didn't like, it was perfect and everyone should read it.
  • Lesley Peck
    I love this series! We first met Abe in book #1 and he was oh so sweet! I really enjoyed reading more about his past and watching him reconnect with Tamar. Wonderful story!
  • Jess
    This series of books just works for me, on all the levels. They make me happy.
  • Andrea
    The New York Leopards series has been on my radar for awhile now, thanks to a recommendation by my very picky cousin/librarian, and the endorsement of our book group. All the ladies are in agreement that this is a great series. I haven't read the first two books, yet, but I can safely say that based on Imaginary Lines, I completely agree. Tamar Rosenfeld has been in love with Abraham Krasner for nearly half her life. A friend when she needed one,...

    Find this review and more at kimberlyfaye reads .I have been in literary love with Abraham Krasner since he and Rachael became friends in Rush Me. He always seemed like a good guy who didn't fall into any of the pro-football player stereotypes. I was so excited to learn he was getting his own book. I wanted/needed to know his full story immediately. I could have done cartwheels when I had the opportunity to read and review it before release. I f...

    A friend recommended this book to me and I'm glad I read it. I love both main characters. Abe is a great guy and I didn't expect less from him. In "Rush Me" he was one of my favourite characters. I'm happy I got to read a whole book about him.Tamar is pretty great too. She finally gets everything she has dreamed of. Even a dream she had given up a long time ago. What I really liked about this book is that they stood strong throughout everything. ...
  • Mandy (I Read Indie) Anderson
    Regret filled his face and he moved his arms as though to pull me into a hug. "Tammy-"But that was all I needed, to be comforted by Abraham Krasner for being idiot enough to fall in love with him at first sight, and stay that way for close to a decade. He was too perfect, and I clearly was not, and I was in no shape to handle that.So instead of collapsing against him, I stumbled back, unable to take his soulful, tragic eyes, I ran. **A few years ...

    IMAGINARY LINES had elements I love in a book: the childhood crush, an adult romance and sports. I cracked open my e-reader with enthusiasm to delve into the story of Tamar and Abraham. Tamar and Abraham have known each other since Tamar was twelve and since twelve, Tamar always had a crush on Abe. But her hopes for anything with Abe were crushed when he rejected her during a visit to UCLA. Now graduated from college and off to her first job as a...

    I am absolutely loving the New York Leopard series and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I adore Abe from the first two books and although he was never my idea of super hot leading man like Ryan and Mike, I was really intrigued by his story. I also am a huge sucker for second chance romances, so I knew this book was going to be right up my alley. The beginning of the book was absolutely heartbreaking. I felt so freaking bad for ...
  • Farrah
    A very sweet, thoroughly enjoyable read, Imaginary Lines was a wonderful New Adult romance. I really liked this fantastic book. From the sweet and hot romance, to the lovely story, this book was great.Tamar was a wonderful heroine. She was a genuinely kind and likable character, but one who also wouldn't let others run all over her. She was tougher than it would appear at first glance and just an overall great character. I really liked her.Abe wa...

    "We were hot and fast, light lightning, a storm after a dry spell. We were the roaring ocean, the brightness of the moon, the inexplorable tide that tied them together." As you may or may have noticed, I've become such a second chance romance trash. :-)This story was just incredibly adorable and swoon-worthy. Tamar and Abe turned me into a bundle of joy. Can we just appreciate every time Tammy compares Abe to her definition of home? AND WHILE WE'...
  • Silvana [The Book Voyagers]
    THIS BOOK IS 100% CUTE AND TEASE AND THEY BANTER LIKE 100% OF THE TIME AND IT WAS GLORIOUS. Abe and Tamar are my second best favorite. Rachael and Ryan still have a very large spot in my heart. But that doesn't mean I don't love them as much or that I don't wanna throw my kindle out the window and shout because of the blush and the cuteness this book has made me a mess. You can't stop smiling. Yep. Read it and your smile will forever be on your f...
  • Sonja
    THIS BOOK, THOUGH. I think it's my favorite in the series so far. Everything about this worked for me. I'd been waiting for Abe's book since I read the first book in this series, and then not only did I get it, I get a CHILDHOOD BEST FRIENDS TO LOVERS book and if you know me, that's already a lot because friends to lovers is my very favorite trope, and then their story turned out to be more than I could've ever asked for. There were so, SO many t...
  • Stephanie D
    This book had soooo much potential!!!The great twist happened 3/4 at the end of the book. It should have been done 1/2 because honestly the romance was just blah. It was cute and sweet but boring. I mean it took them half a book to start dating?? And they were childhood friends. So the chemistry should have been there already. Although I must say... I loved the twist! It was the only saving grace of this book.
  • Meagan
    One of my close friends is always trying to hook up with me, and its never this romantic.Also this was kind of dark for a romance book. My favorite football player/hometown hero committed suicide because of brain damage from concussions. He lived down the beach from my grandmother.Kind of made me very uncomfortable, but that was the point? Ripped from headlines can be kind of icky.Just remember that, writers. Maybe fictionalize things just a bit?...
  • Lisa
    2.5 stars. Another childhood friends turn lovers story. There are a lot of sweet moments (Abe is the sweetest guy ever) butttttttttttt...overall, I still think it's more meh.
  • Fernanda
    2.5 ~ 3 starsIt was sweet but I couldn't get rid of the feeling that he took her for granted for so long and he did not make up for it, at least IMO.
  • Ad
    Massive step up from the previous instalment in the series and sweeter than the first.Tammy and Abe felt natural, easy and believable which was necessary to pulling off the childhood friends trope. It had that sizzle and spark I didn't get with Mike and Nat.It was great that Tammy didn't old some petty grudge for being rejected. It didn’t have annoying and immature behaviour that was annoying in the first book.I know that the time jump (four ye...

    I loved Imaginary Lines;it was sweet and tender.  I loved the friendship between Tamar and Abraham.  I loved the strength of their relationships with their families.  I enjoyed that Tamar was her own person with her own life.  I loved that Abraham loved, accepted, and expected Tamar to have her own life.  I look forward to reading more by Allison Parr.
  • Shana
    I really enjoyed the first in the Leopards series, so I had high expectations. I appreciated that the protagonists were Jewish, because I don't see that in many romances. I didn't read the heat in their relationship and it was missing witty dialogue that I enjoy in my lighter reads, so this was just an okay read for me.
