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?
** This book is a Falling Series spin-off. It can be read as a standalone. **
*I was provided a copy by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
This is one of that books/series that I keep hearing amazing things about so when I saw In Your Dreams on NetGalley I knew I had to request it and good thing I did it. It might have taken me a long time to read it but I really enjoyed this book and I loved the story.
I loved the main characters. Casey was a great guy. He was really cocky but it doesn’t mean he wasn’t a great guy anyway. I felt bad for him a lot of times because he thought he wasn’t a good guy and he thought that he had this big list of flaws when he wasn’t that bad. Yeah he had some flaws but he was still a good guy and he really cared about the people he loved. Murphy was just great. First of all the girl had purple hair. I love it and now I want purple hair too. But she was an amazing character too. I loved how sweet and shy she was but I also loved how strong she was. These two were great together. I also really liked how their relationship developed. It wasn’t something that happened right away. Instead it was really slow and you could see their relationship grow. And they were super cute together so bonus points for this books. I wasn’t expecting this to be as heartbreaking as it was sometimes but I loved it anyway. It was just an amazing story.
This is my first Ginger Scott book so I didn’t know what I should expect but I loved the writing style and the characters she created. I really need to read the other books in this series, especially the one about Houston because I already love him and his family.
Overall, this was an amazing new adult book. I would recommend it to everyone who loves or wants to start reading more new adult. One thing is for sure, I’m planning on reading more books written by the author.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If you haven’t read it would you read it?
