I see great potential for the book to become a motion picture. Its somewhere between In Her Shoes meets Serendipity meets The Sweetest Thing!
Who would you choose as the leadings ladies in the movie? What about the male leads?
I would choose Sienna Miller to play Kate mainly because I think their personalities would be more similar than most actress. As for Kelly, I see an older figure like Reese Witherspoon or Jennifer Garner as Kelly. Coach Tim Fortunate = Jude Law?

It's Liz and Lisa. Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for
reading our book and all your insightful feedback. We definitely had
people in mind when we wrote the book! Weigh in on your opinion and
then we'll tell you who we were thinking about as we wrote!

Well I can definately see this becoming a motion picture quite easily; drama, family, romance, woomanhood, some truly "nice guys" and an almost affair ... what more could you ask for? :-)
As for the actors..
How about Kate Hudson for Kelly (very pretty, can look a bit mature but still peppy and young)
Cameron Diaz as Kate (a bit older... she is just very "kate")
Matthew McConaughey for Tim Fortune (he has the hot bad-boy thing going)
Christian Bale as Jeremy (gorgeous, lawyer / accountant type looks)
and Chris Pine as Mark Dicks (again ... gorgeous.. need there by any other reason? lol)
Liz&Lisa - Congrats on your book! I LOVED it and can't wait for the next one!!! :-)

Thanks Becky! We had a lot of fun writing it and are just glad that y'all took the time to check it out.
And it's funny you guys mentioned "The Sweetest Thing" because we definetly had that it in mind while writing- we LOVE that movie and it's campy humor.
Well, I'll go ahead and tell ya who we were thinking. We mostly had the same opinions although we each wrote a different character(Liz wrote Kelly, Lisa wrote Kate) so sometimes writing from different narrative changed our views.
Kelly: Jennifer Garner! We love her and think she would do a great job making Kelly likable in an unlikable situation.
Kate: We went back and forth a lot on Kate but our front runners were: Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon (if she could channel a little bit of Elle from Legally Blonde) or Kate Hudson.
Tim Fortune: Liz thought of Josh Duhmel when she was writing about him, but Lisa was dreaming of Matthew McConaughey.
Jeremy: None other than Liz's crush Micheal Vartan!
Mark Dicks: Mark Ruffalo. In fact, that's why Kate and Kelly say he looks like an actor when they first meet him...it was Mark Ruffalo from the very first word he uttered.
Sol: Well, Sol is actually based on LaSundra, who we have been friends with for twenty years and she is insistent that she play Sol in the movie! But if the casting director nixes that idea, we were thinking Gabrielle Union.
