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 fate—to enter a stranger’s surf shop while trying to dodge some fans—for 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.
"Ophelia London rips away the veneer of the music business to reveal a heroine who breaks your heart while making you laugh out loud.” – Mara Purl, bestselling author of What the Heart Knows
First 30-50 Pages were a real turn off; after that it was quite engaging. I can't fully explain why those initial pages are such a turn-off, but they really were. It's not like there was huge amounts of world building like in PNR/UF (this is a contemporary romance) but maybe it was eve... ...more

Abigail Kelly is one of the top performers in the world with her band, Mustang Sally, and as lead singer she can have her pick of guys. At twenty four, she still hasn't found the right one and since her every move is detailed in the tabloids, she doesn't have a lot of opportuni... ...more
As a little girl, I dreamed of being a famous musician. I sang all over the place, and some would even say I was famous in and around my own hometown. But the fame that I received is nothing compared to the amount of pressure put on the super famous, as brilliantly portrayed in Abby Road.
If anyone dislikes the Beatles… I’m sorry, but we can never be friends. Ever. I will not understand you. That being said, I want to meet Abigail Kelly. She has made it onto my list of fictional characters that I’d love to meet in real life.

This is my new favorite piece of chick lit! I loved it! It is unlike anything else I have read. Despite being a pop star, Abby is a very real person with real emotions and real issues. Todd, while certainly dreamy, is also real and complex. Ophelia London keeps the story fresh as she introduces s... ...more
I've read Abby Road and it was heart-thumpingly great. In turns, it's witty, romantic, tear-jerking, sexy, and snort-coffee-out-of-your-nose funny. It's a wonderful book, and I'm so glad it's coming out in time for the beach season because it's a perfect summer read. ...more
Brilliant dialogue. Brilliant characters. Brilliant read. I highly recommend!

Abby Road was a fun read for me. Well mostly fun, Abby's "road" to her HEA was rather rocky, but it was interesting to watch. I like books like this where the main character has to learn something.

I loved this book! I'll admit that, when I started this book, I wasn't sure what I was going to think. The summary made it sound amazing, but I found the initial writing style somewhat lackluster, and in the first 50 pages or so, things just felt somewhat fake to me. Superficial. That's not neces... ...more
What I liked:
Abby Road is an exceptionally tender, heart wrenching and unique book. Its endearing story touched me as I am sure it will you. I loved the moments my heart ached, when I laughed out load or when my heart warmed with the growth of the characters. I loved that Abby rescued herself.
For as long as I can remember I've secretly wanted to be a rock star. As a little girl I used hairbrushes as microphones while singing along to my records. Even now, if you're stopped beside me at a stoplight, you can see me singing at the top of my lungs and rocking out to whatever song I'm curr... ...more
