About the Author

Ophelia London was born and raised among the redwood trees in beautiful northern California. Once she was fully educated, she decided to settle in Florida, but her car broke down in Texas and she's lived in Dallas ever since. A cupcake and treadmill aficionado (obviously those things are connected), she spends her time watching arthouse movies and impossibly trashy TV, while living vicariously through the characters in the books she writes. Ophelia is the author of PLAYING AT LOVE, SPEAKING OF LOVE... and ABBY ROAD. Visit her at her website. But don't call when The Vampire Diaries is on.

Brilliant dialogue. Brilliant characters. Brilliant read. I highly recommend! When I read, I want to escape and relax. And this is EXACTLY what this book did for me, I was quickly sucked into Abby's world.

What I really enjoyed about the main character, Abby, was that she was flawed. I really dislike reading books when all the characters are too perfect. Abby is real. You identify with her. You feel with her. You root for her. The story was refreshingly honest. As for the love interest, I fell in love with Todd immediately (um, who wouldn't?!). He's such a dreamboat...and those abs...hello!!!! And I even enjoyed the supporting characters just as much. I don't usually care about the supporting cast but for this read I was invested in them...a new thing for me...and they added a lot to the plot. Hal was a personal favorite of mine.

I really love the writing style of the author. Abby Road brings the town of Seaside, Florida alive. I've never been there or to that part of the country but I feel like I've walked the streets, visited the shops, and overlooked the beach from Todd's house. (Preferably in his arms *swoon*!)

The author also managed to capture all the emotions, angst and drama that go into the creation of a romance. We've all been in her shoes at one time or another and many of us have had that feeling of getting into a relationship too quickly and for the wrong/right reasons. The middle part of the book flew by and I found a smile on my face many times as I was reading. Also, if you're a Beatles, Sinatra or just a music fan in general you'll enjoy the clever song lyrics, references, etc. sparsed throughout the book. They put a little ditty in your head while you're reading. Fun surprise!

Often, in the romantic stories featuring celebrities, all the cards are spread out so that the flakes and sparks make you dream. Also generally, the trend is having a man in the spotlight and a woman who is attracted by the personality behind the mask of the star. A great receipe, of course, because the female reader wants to picture herself with whatever actor she secretly fantasize about.

A very refreshing novel because Ophelia London reverse the trend.
Abby has talent. However, by using her voice too much, by spending her time on the road, by smiling at her fans, and by always trying to dodge the paparazzi, she begins to falter.
Physically and mentally exhausted, she needs to stop running and recharge. But even two months of vacations seem to be difficult to insert in her super busy schedule.

Yet this change of air will give her a new impulsion, a new desire and... will radically change her life.
Of course, there is a love story. Of course Todd is the perfect guy for Abby. Of course he tries to fit into her famous world.
Obviously the road to happiness is strewn with pitfalls but this part here, it is up to you to find out about. Don't be a chicken, the story is great and the characters are all well pictured and entertaining.

What interested me the most is the backstage development and drama. The backbreaking work required to be famous. The betrayal, the pressure, guilt and the lack of self-confidence of the heroin.
Perfectly described, it is far from the dream life imagined by fans and yet this is what makes the charm of this story.

A very nice discovery.

I have always been fascinated by the lives of celebrities and everything that goes along with their fame. There is obviously so much more than meets the eye and we really get to see that here in this story with Abigail (Abby) Kelly. She is the lead singer for the band Mustang Sally and has absolutely been run ragged. She is coming apart at the seams and my heart really ached for her. She loves singing and loves her band, but she's feeling so overwhelmed with all the pressure that comes with being a well known, popular artist. Finally getting a much needed summer off, Abby flees the glittering, always on demand lifestyle of L.A. and heads for her sister's in Florida. It is here that Abby meets Todd, an ex-Marine, whom she ends up falling for.

I liked Abby and Todd together. Abby needs someone to ground her and be normal with. Todd is as normal as they get- having opened his own shop in beachy Florida. He's a good guy and he likes Abby a lot. After spending a day together, it's obvious the two are attracted to one another and want to spend time together. However, Abby's demanding schedule certainly doesn't make that easy. I admit, I thought we would spend more time watching Abby and Todd falling for one another in Florida over the summer. The small beach town is such an ideal, romantic setting, so I was a bit disappointed that we were told rather than saw the effects of the beginning of this relationship. Instead, we fast forward to the end of the summer and Abby returning to her life in Los Angeles. She is not going alone and I felt this was an interesting twist to their relationship. Todd doesn't seem like the kind of guy to just let go of his life in FL to follow a girl across the country to simply be with her.

L.A.
