True Love is Jimmy & 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.

Nessa & Jimmy
In the last book we left off were Nessa was in a horrible motorcycle accident and lost her hand. With that being said being a drummer will be difficult one handed. Rick Allen from Def Leppard played one handed and was very successful so it is not impossible.
Nessa’s major situation to overcome is her Nasty Mother’s influence on her as a child. The amputation of her hand would be easier if her mother’s words did not constantly come back to haunt her.
Jimmy has to convince Nessa that he loves her and that they belong together. Nessa has to believe Jimmy and forgive him for his dumbass behavior.
The band gets a new drummer Jace who fits right into the band and Nessa has to find a place in her heart to love herself.
This was my favorite thus far of the Songbird series. Nessa’s role in life has changed and she feels lost. I think many people can relate to this feeling for different reasons. Jimmy has to lose what he did not realize he wanted to appreciate it. This is also true to real life. And the band has to move forward no matter what.
