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 are out of the question...

And then she comes into his shop.

A strong ex Marine Sniper has to deal with real life. Things which seem suspicious to him due to is training are everyday occurrences. He has sisters who care about him and how he seems locked away... shut down... and he is.

How does a man turn off making sure those he sees are not being attacked....

A Rock Star/Pop Princess is out trying to be normal...she is hounded everyday by paparazzi and reporters...If anyone seems under attack to our man... it is this cute, open faced woman.

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

Todd Camford, a former Marine sniper, now owns a beachfront surf shop in Florida, and is more than happy about it. on his most important day, he meets Abigail ...

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
3.5 stars

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.

Tom & Abby have a sweet, yet somewhat unusual story. Tom Camford is the owner of a retail store in Seaside. He is a former Marine. Abigail Kelly is a mega rockstar who wants no one to recognize and mob her. She is easy to find for most young kids since she is pretty famous.

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

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."

I enjoyed this "day in the life of" story as Todd meets Abby. It's told entirely from Todd's point of view, which was a change but a refreshing one. I haven't read Abby Road (presumably Abby's side of the story) so I didn't know quite what to expect with this one. I liked Todd's voice and I thought it was interesting how this one day affects Todd in so many ways, from a romantic and a business perspective as well. I liked the glimpses of Abby, music star extraordinaire, that we see from Todd's p ...more
As far as books I have read this is not high on my happy list. This whole story is told from the male POV which is not a problem...the whole book is one day....again not a problem.

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

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?

Todd's POV is very refreshing I enjoyed his sense of humor and view of things more than I did Abby's. I definitely recommend reading Abby Road first before reading Crossing Abby Road.

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".

This was a cute, funny story about two people from different worlds making a real connection.

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

I am giving this book only 3 stars. I did not appreciate all the cursing in this book. The author's first book was so good and I am disappointed in her.

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.

Will their blazing hot attraction be enough to convince the singer to spend the rest of the summer with the protective entrepreneur?

It always saddens me when a book by an author I enjoy doesn't end up working for me. Unfortunately this is the case with Crossing Abby Road. Having enjoyed many of Ophelia's other novels, I immediately accepted this one for review. I did not realize this was the same variation of the first book, Abby Road, only in the male POV. I had thought it to be another couple's story, which is why I requested it and read the previous book a few weeks ago. I do not much care for retellings in the male POV, ...more

Short and sweet!

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

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

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

I didn't realise this was a spin off to another book when I requested it. Actually it's taken me to the end of the book to figure out and I'm glad it is as it stops any complaints I had about this book.

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

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

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

Marine, Todd Camford, is enjoying his post military life, running a little surf shop on the beach in Florida. (with plans for expansion). Abigail Kelly is a famous pop star who wants to fly under the radar for a while. After Todd rescues Abby from a potential mob scene, they choose to spend the day together, hanging out, picnicking and sharing some of their secrets. But what happens when their one day comes to an end?
Abigail Kelly (Abby) is a rock superstar. Todd Camford is an ex-marine sniper who now owns a beachfront surf shop in Florida. When Abby takes refuge, trying to hide from fans, in his store life becomes even more interesting for both of them!

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

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

Today is a very important day for Todd. It could change his whole life. Of course all that went out the window when Abigail walked into his surf shop. He has lived with pressure being a sniper for the marines but now he runs a surf shop and just wants to be an unfettered hawk. He loves his sisters and is used to their kind of crazy but nothing prepares him for Abigail.
