Casey Coffield has a growing list of personal flaws he keeps locked away in his head:
He’s never on time.
His list of IOUs to his best friend is endless.
Money is always short.
Goals are never in reach.

Oh, and he’s decided to add college drop-out to that list, too. He doesn’t really think that last one’s such a bad thing, but his family insists it is, so it stays on the list.

On paper, he’s a zero. But in person, when he’s mixing tracks for a sea of bodies at the hottest clubs and parties, he’s downright irresistible. Just-right stubble on his chin, body of a boxer and a smirk that stimulates all the right nerves—women have never been a problem. They flock to his swagger and fall for his charm…fast.

All except for this one. 

Purple hair, gray eyes, a raspy voice and sass, Murphy Sullivan is a little bit country and a little bit rock-n-roll. And her and Casey? They have history. He can’t remember it, but she wrote a song about him—and it’s not exactly a love song. But it is good. Damn good. And uncovering her inspiration just might be the key to solving a few of his shortcomings—not to mention open doors to his own big break in the music industry.

But sometimes dreams get messy when they collide. Sometimes life changes patterns. A past paints the wrong picture and futures get cloudy. The only question that remains is who will you choose when the dust settles—you? Or the girl of your dreams?

Spin Off of the Falling Series

My In Your Dreams Review . . . 

I absolutely adored the Falling Series so I was super stoked to read this spin off.  Since you kind of fall for Casey and his asshole ways in book three The Girl I was Before.  Yes, this book is a spin off and technically part of another series but it can be read as a standalone or as part of the series.

Casey Coffield is trying to live his dream even against his families wishes.  Which means he has to work harder for it all to come true without the support of his family.   Casey knows how to put music together, he also knows how to be an asshole.  When his roommate stumbles across a song geared to the hatred of Casey, he starts on a journey to find this mystery woman.  Not to give her hell but to try and help her which in turn will help in because she has something raw and beautiful with her voice.

Murphy Sullivan wants to live her dream but is scared.  Scared she's not good enough.  Scared she's not ready.  Scared of almost everything really.   When she was in high school she was basically invisible but it was douchecanoes like Casey that made her want to never be like them or want them in her life.  It wasn't Casey in particular but what he represented.

The irony that this one guy I wanted to never-not ever-notice me, is now not only consuming my thoughts and dreams, but he's spurred me to action.

As Casey wears Murphy down he also starts to fall for her but doesn't know how to have it all and still deal with his family woes.  Murphy is equally smitten but has her own baggage keeping her off balance where Casey is concerned.  With Casey's push it helps both of them to propel forward.

"He said 'dreams are excuses for not doing what needs to be done in life.'"

Even though they may have been opposites they fit together and give each other what the other was missing.   It took me awhile to get into this book and the characters but they both grew on me. Murphy and her quirky ways and Casey and his asshole taming.

"I'm Murphy," I say, meek and demure.  "I'm not great with crowds, and stress usually makes me stutter.  However, you seem to have the opposite effect on me, and I deeply apologize for that assault with words and nonsense I just unleashed."

What started as a selfish quest ends up turning Casey's life all around.  But can he have the girl and the dream?

Because Murphy Sullivan is that girl for me, my undoing and my discipline.  She's what my dreams are made of, and I want to taste her, consume her, and hold her hostage for all of time. 

In the end I did quite like this book but it was a SLOW build for me and took awhile for me to get into the story and into the characters.  For some reason time line errors and content errors jump out at me when reading and I know it was an ARC so my fingers are crossed that these issues got fixed for the finalcopy, but if they didn't then be forewarned that it can be quite distracting.  Normally I don't mention these types of things into too many reviews but once they get distracting I will comment.

I liked the idea of Murphy and Casey a bit more then the actual couple.  I don't know if it was the slow build or what but I wasn't hooked as much as I usually am with Ginger Scott books and characters.  I still liked the story in the end but not as much as her other books.  However, I'm sure many will have the opposite opinion to me and that is what makes opinions and thoughts beautiful as we are all entitled to our own and how it effects each of us, which will be different for everyone.

3.5 Slow Build Thumbs up!
