Review ~ Crossing Abby Road (Abby Road #2) by Ophelia London

Crossing Abby Road (Abby Road #2)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: March 31st 2015

Publisher: Entangled Publishing

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.

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?

My Opinion

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 development. I did think there was chemistry between them and I'm glad there was a little more spark towards the end. The only word that keeps coming to mind is cute.

The fact that it's written all from Todd's POV did surprise me but seeing as this is his story that makes sense now. I'm Assuming Abby Road (book 1) tells everything from her POV in more detail seeing as that book is 400 pages long. Similarly there are things that aren't answered in this book so once again I assume the full back story is in book one. Saying that I could still read this book easily as a standalone. There are a few questions but it didn't affect the plot development.

Overall this was a sweet read that would be great on the beach. The characters were loveable, it was lighthearted, and the writing flowed off the page. Definitely want to read more.
