My Thoughts:

I started reading Ophelia London’s work when she wrote the Definitely Maybe Series and I was really excited to job the review tour for The Abby Road Series. Just like the other book that I have read, I enjoyed the story as a whole.

There was just one thing that I did not like about this one, at first I felt a huge connection to the characters and loving their romance and all of a sudden the book jumped three months in advance. So, I felt like something was missing and I lost a bit of the connection. Then their story started back up again and I started to feel the connection again.

I am a reader who loves to read stories where the main characters grow. I think Abby grew a bit in the end, but it took her a very long time to lead up to that moment. She kept getting pushed around and I just wanted her to see what was truly going on in her life. Then there is Todd, I liked him but I cannot believe he did what he did and never looked back. I did love them together and I cannot wait to read the next book!

As a huge fan of music it was interesting reading a story about a pop star and the struggles she was going through. She had a lot to deal with starting with her manager and how he treated her. It was completely awful but I know things like that happen.

I also like that all of the chapters were names of different Beatles songs! It was nice since Abby was such a huge fan it was incorporated in that way.

BLURB:

It’s been exactly one day since rock star Abigail Kelly fled her chaotic life in L.A. to her sister’s home in Florida. One day without her demanding manager, paparazzi, ridiculous tour schedules, and recording sessions. For the first time in five years, she has the summer off. To be anonymous. A summer to not think about losing her brother…or that her once-normal life has turned into a mess of panic and heartbreak.
 But all it takes is one twist of fateto enter a stranger’s surf shop while trying to dodge some fansfor everything to change.
 Because the shop owner happens to be a really cute guy with an amazing laugh. With Todd, an ex-Marine sniper turned surfer, she feels things she hasn’t felt for a long time. Possibly never. But when the real world comes crashing back in, Abby is caught between the superstar she’s become…and the painfully real human being she longs to be.

Blurb:
Todd Camford went from Marine sniper to owning a beachfront surf shop in Florida, and he couldn’t be happier. Unfortunately, the programming from his training hasn’t quite been eliminated. His ex called him an unfeeling cyborg, but he’s a free-flying, unfettered hawk, damn it. Relationships outside of family are out of the question…
And then she comes into his shop.
Everyone knows who Abigail Kelly is—mega rockstar, tabloid fixture. Still, nothing prepares Todd for Abby’s smoky gray eyes or the swift breathlessness of their instant chemistry. He’d be an ass (or possibly insane) to think he can resist her. Just for today, maybe he’ll keep an eye on her to make sure she doesn’t get mobbed. Because really, how much damage could one day with a super-hot, kick-ass celebrity really do?
