She’s a singer, a songwriter, a pianist, a rock goddess, and a sex kitten. She’s Jenn Bradford, and her career is in disarray. Jenn’s third album, Reality Check, was dismissed by critic/super cute indie rock boy Zach Bingham as "fence straddling" and "not nearly as strong as her near-classic, Guess Who Came at Dinner." The audiences at Jenn’s shows are at once shrinking and bored. And she can’t bring herself to fire her troublesome but talented drummer – who happens to be ex-boyfriend, Kevin McAllister. Now Zach may not dig Jenn’s record, but he sure digs Jenn, and he breaks one of journalism’s cardinal rules: Don’t sleep with somebody you’ve written about. The results of Jenn and Zach’s hook-up (or hook-ups) are disastrous, and almost bring Jenn’s already out of control world to a crashing halt. But with the help of her B.F.F. Naomi Braver, her punky manager Masuhara Jones, stuffy dot-com billionaire Porter Ellis, goofball bassist T.J. Stewart, the ghost of Billie Holiday, and her zillion-selling smash hit "Addition by Subtraction" – you know, that song where she’s fully naked in the video – Jenn will make those seemingly impossible decisions: Do I want to be a bubble gum pop star, or an obscure but mature jazz chanteuse? Do I want to be with a boy, or with a man? Do I want to keep being a girl, or start being a woman? The sexy, passionate, hilarious sequel to The True Naomi Story, Reality Check takes you right into the soul of the ugly music industry – and right into the heart of a beautiful soul.
