True Love is Jimmy and Nessa's story.
One night can change everything …
Nessa Sloan has been in love with Jimmy Baker since the ninth grade when they started up a rock band together. Five years later they’re about to hit the big time - Chaos wins a recording contract and nation-wide tour with Torrence Records. After their celebration party, the two best friends have a one-night stand that will tear their relationship apart.
On the run from Jimmy’s rejection, Nessa takes off on her motorbike, but an accident brings her escape to a tragic end. Now trapped in a broken body, Nessa has to face a future stripped of the one thing that’s gotten her through every past challenge - playing the drums.
Jimmy never meant to break his best friend’s heart, and he will forever regret taking her to bed then treating her like one of his groupies. But once he’d crossed that line, he couldn’t go back. Now Jimmy is on a mission to do something he’s never done before - win a girl over.
Angry and confused by her new disability, Nessa doesn’t want Jimmy’s help. But she has nobody else to rely on … and his pigheaded ass won’t leave her alone. Can these two stubborn hearts get past their own insecurities to figure out what true love really looks like? Or will they drive each other crazy before they finally see the truth?
It’s infuriating, irresistible, and all-consuming … it’s true love.
Praise for the Book
"I love Ms. Pearl's Songbird novels and this one is no different. [...] Looking forward to the next book and hearing more from Chaos." ~ Robyn on Goodreads
"This is my first time reading Melissa's work and it was a fantastic start. I look forward to more from her. Each book is a standalone and some characters cross over ... I never felt lost. I recommend this beautiful story." ~ Heather M on Goodreads
"Pretty pretty please do not let me miss out on anything Melissa Pearl writes. True Love is both the title of the book and my feelings for it as well as for the craftsmanship Ms. Pearl displays. To call this an enjoyable read is the equivalent of calling the ocean wet." ~ Frank Atkins on Goodreads
"While True Love is book #5 in the Songbird series, it can be read as a standalone. I enjoyed the writing style of Melissa Pearl, and loved how each of the characters in this book interacted with each other. She clearly depicted that you don’t have to share blood with someone in order to consider them to be family." ~ Shannon on Goodreads
"I love reading Melissa work. I also love this series! It is linked together, but not enough that you need to start at the beginning (but I think that you should read all of them). This book, like the others, are about music. They have a playlist on Spotify that you can listen to. I highly suggest getting the free account to follow Melissa and the playlists. You won't be disappointed in this book. You will love this book!!" ~ Kelly Mccurdy on Goodreads
