Crossing Abby Road is the sequel to Abby Road. I didn't read the first book so this novella is told in Tom's POV on the day he spent with Abby, the pop star princess. Tom is a former Marine Sniper who runs a surf shop. His ordinary mediocre day brightens up when he decides to spend the day watching over Abby. He makes sure she is hounded by paparazzi and fans. Well this day blooms into a sweet romance brewing between Tom and Ab ...more
Abigail Kelly is a famous singer and a tabloid fixture. But Todd is not prepared for the swift breathlessness of their instant chemistry. He knows there won't or can't be anything between them but can't really resist her.
I was so looking forward to a fluffy romance with a bit of action - but unfortunately this is not what this book is ...more
Crossing Abby Road was a sweet and fun read.
Loved reading Todd's POV of the day he met Abby.
I'm a huge fan of Ophelia London's work and once again she gave us another great read.
Thank you Entangled Embrace via Netgalley for the advance copy in exchange for my honest thoughts. ...more
Tom meets Abby when she runs into his store to escape some kids who have seen her. She ends up talking to Tom - who knows her face but he does not know why. They see one another later at the local deli, where Tom has to rescue ...more
This book was alright it was missing an ompfh that I generally like in my books but Todd made up.for that, "she looked down at her hands still gripping my arm, then quickly removed them and hid them behind her back. “Um, sorry about that.” I wasn’t— what guy didn’t love being grabbed by a hot girl? But damn, this girl was strong." Some of his answers to her questions were interesting, "why?” I said, meeting her eyes. “Because I think it might be fun rescuing you from sharks all summer." He's a f ...more
The problem... there was too much description, talking, and not enough of anything else. Abby is a famous singer. She's currently in Florida to escape L.A. for a little bit. She meets Todd...who is great he's coming down from his life in the Marines and wants to set up his life.
There is chemistry between the two but ...more
A super cute slice of time with two MCs I enjoyed. Todd and Abby are both fun and have a complicated situation. Their personalities seem to be perfect for each other and it was fun reading them work things out for themselves.
The only downside is that I wish we got a little bit more from them. I did like the premise that it was just one day and it's plays out well, but I was greedy for more of these two when I reached the end. Hopefully there will be more?
I did see there was a book 1, s ...more
I do however feel there needs to be follow up story - from Todd's Pov :-)
Ophelia London is very talented and always manages to tell a love story without turning it "Rated R". ...more
After reading, “Abby Road”, I found myself intrigued even more about Todd and “Crossing Abby Road” definitely delivered in that regard. It was great to go back to that fateful meeting between Abby and Todd and relive it through his point of view. From reading his and Abby’s story, I already knew that he was caring and understanding. I wasn’t surprised to learn that he didn’t make decisions lightly and t ...more
This book is so much like the first book, but this is from the viewpoint of Todd. So much in this book was a repeat of book 1.
Former Marine, Todd Camford is just finding his way in life. He’s bought a beachfront surf shop and so far, business has been okay. His personal life, however, is another matter. Recently dumped by his fiancé because he doesn’t show his emotions very well, Todd is just trying to cope with a life outside of the military.
Abbigail Kelly is a hot commodity. Lead singer of a hugely famous band, she’s always ...more

Todd Camford is on the verge of making his dreams come true when he meets megastar Abigail "Abby" Todd, front woman of the wildly popular group, Mustang Sally. He is ...more
Crossing Abby Road is a retelling of the beginning of book 1 in the series, Abby Road , from Todd's POV. It takes place in a single day--the day Abby and Todd meet--and therefore is fairly brief. I haven't read book 1--yet ;)--but since it starts at beginning of the story (well, Todd's beginning, anyway) that wasn't a problem.
I adored Todd. He was a Marine-sniper-turned-surf-shop-owner with a close family (complete with 2 nosy sisters!) and a recently-ended engagement. In fac ...more
Crossing Abby Road is book #2 in the Abby Road series, I was gifted a copy of this book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
This book is more of a companion novel rather than a continuation of Abby and Todd’s story. Crossing Abby Road is the retelling of the day Todd and Abby first met but from Todd’s POV.
I’m always dubious about companion novels and to be honest for me this book does not completely work.
This novella is a success ...more
** ARC provided by NetGalley for an honest review. **
This story was very pleasant one, with a tranquility vibe, like a journey to the beach in the end of summer.This is book two of Abby Road, told from Todd’s POV. It could be read as a standalone.
This is the journey of Abigail, a famous singer and Todd, a former marine, owing a shop.
One day these two met, for never being apart. There was this strong pull that tied them in one moment; like two magnets.
How can you be so attracted to one person
Crossing Abby Road was a sweet, summer read. I didn't really know what to expect but it was cute and adorable. I was surprised by the lack of romance in it coming from this publisher, but then again there is only a day to fit everything in so it would have seemed strange to have too much developme ...more
Abigail Kelly is—mega rockstar, tabloid fixture while Todd Camford went from Marine sniper to owning a beachfront surf shop in Florida and when the two met- sparks happen. It was nice to see two different people meet and fall in love BUTthis story is mainly about one day and there is a lot of talking and a lot of descriptions - which is normally fine but it drags ... there is romance and chemistry but honestly, I hoped for a r ...more
I adored Abby Road, so of course when the lovely Ophelia London told me she was writing the story from Todd's point of view, I eagerly awaited it's release. Why? Because I fell in love with both Todd and Abby in Abby Road and I just needed to read more about it. Even though Crossing Abby Road only recounts Todd's story of that first day, it gave me so much more insight into his character. I finally understood his initial reaction to Abby, where in Abby Road, his initial reaction ...more
I gotta say, I don’t know what it was about this story, but I just couldn’t completely click with these characters.
The entire story happened in one day, so at times it felt like it dragged, with lots of inner monologues and descriptions and not much advancement. It did give insight into Todd’s life (since the story is in his POV), but I felt like the story needed some more action of something.
I did feel the chemistry between Abby and Todd, however I felt it was missing something. May ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella which is told from Todd’s viewpoint. It is an engaging tale which shows stardom and fame aren’t always great in real life for those concerned. The day they spend together, with Todd trying to protect her from fans, will chang ...more
I absolutely adored both Todd and Abby in Abby Road and I was very happy to get a chance to read Todd’s side of the story. It also made me like Todd even more than I did before.
It was interesting to read the whole book of a guy’s point of view and I think that Ms. London did a great job doing it. I liked that this story filled in some of the blanks that I was missing before. I also learned a lot abou ...more
Abigail is a big rock star with all the responsibilities and no privacy. She just wants a day away from all of it and Todd seems ...more
