Touted by the tabloids as the biggest rock star of our generation, Abigail Kelly is used to being in the spotlight. But beyond the glam of Hollywood, her world is falling apart. Still reeling from the death of her brother and wilting under the iron fist of Max, her manager, Abby banishes herself to the secluded beaches of Florida for the summer, thinking some anonymity and sunshine are just what she needs. What she finds, instead, is Todd, an ex-marine eager to embrace life after war. Together, Abby and Todd find the balance Abby’s life has been missing.
That is, until Max resurfaces, demanding Abby return to Los Angeles to record her band’s newest album. As the pressures of public appearances, paparazzi, and late-night recordings start to mount, Abby will have to risk everything or lose the life she always dreamed of.
Ophelia London’s ABBY ROAD is a love letter to music—both the kind you cherish and the kind you create—as well as a beautiful love story that proves even when everyone in the world can recognize your face, the only people who matter are those who can see inside your heart.
Abby Road is a story of a rock star lost and trying to find her way back to being happy. Abigail Kelly takes us into her world of a singer overwhelmed by many things...mainly the death of her brother. While Abby takes a summer break at her sister's house, she meets and falls in love with a local..this is where Todd enters and he was a breath of fresh air for Abby.
While I enjoyed the romance between Abby and Todd, this story started out and remained slow for me. The story didn't pick up and it took away some of the excite~ness out of the read for me. I thought the world building was good and you actually felt what Abby was going through throughout the book; the pain & guilt of loosing her brother, being stalked by the paparazzi and the everyday pressures of being a star. Abby Road I think is a story of moving on and taking control. The world and characters were strong and likable even with the slow feel of the tale.
