A Songbird Novel
By Melissa Pearl
Release Date: November 18, 2015
SynopsisOne 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.
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
I love the Songbird series. Melissa Pearl has managed to make each book individual to the characters involved, whilst still having other characters cameo in them for that added something special. We met Nessa in Josh and Rachel's book and I found myself looking forward to seeing where this quiet girl with a broken heart would go. Never did I imagine the journey I would take with her.
I fell in love with both Nessa and Jimmy - they both have their faults and fears but they are perfect for each other. I think I spent at least half of this book blinking madly to get rid of my leaking eyes! Nessa has some serious issues to work out - both from her past and present. Jimmy is doing his best to make things right between them but has his own fears throwing spanners in the works, as well as Nessa's lack of trust (which was his own fault anyway!)
Exceedingly well-written, with a smooth pace and enough feels to keep kleenex in business, I really can't recommend this highly enough. Loved every single word. Just one thing - please tell me that Ralphie gets a story! He is such a sweetheart.
* I received this book from Mark My Words Book Publicity in return for a fair and honest review. *
