Genres: Love & Romance, New Adult
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?
First things first…I love this cover. Secondly, I love this cover even more. Thirdly, it fits absolutely perfect with this book. Okay, I have that out of the way.
In Your Dreams is the fourth book in the Falling series. I guess it’s a bit of a spin-off per se. You can definitely read this one as a standalone but since I love this series, I recommend you read this one after the first three books.
We were introduced to Casey, Houston’s best friend in the last book, The Girl I Was Before. He’s a tad much, he’s always taking from his best friend, he’s a bit over-the-top personality-wise, cocky, and really makes no excuses for himself. His passion is music, mainly DJ’ing. Unfortunately, his father does not see eye-to-eye with his passion and has not supported him for a very long time. Sadly, because his father does not understand why he is not an engineer as opposed to a DJ there relationship is non-existent putting a large strain on his relationships with his entire family.
Casey finds out that there is a YouTube song of someone singing about him and he must seek out this person. It actually became a bit of an obsession. Unbeknownst to him, Murphy (the girl in question), actually went to high school with him but he has no prior knowledge of this. They were two people on vastly different ends of the social spectrum.
“If my music had a physical form, I think it might just be her.”
Immediately he is taken with her talent as well as other things… Casey has decided he is going to help Murphy become the star that he knows she can be.
Ginger delivered a beautiful, slow burn romance that will have you rooting for Casey and Murphy. Between the realistic portrayal of their relationship and the music that was incorporated I really enjoyed this one. The ending did have me tearing up a bit as it showed how much the both of them helped shape the person they’d become. FYI-thanks to Ginger, I think DJs might actually be sexier then lead singers. I know this might sound strange but the way Ginger described his DJing, I swear I felt like I was literally at the club while he was spinning his tunes. She described it that amazingly!
“I’ll wish for you because wanting you isn’t enough and having you is too fleeting. And should we find ourselves apart, I’ll wish twice as hard, and maybe, just maybe, I’ll be luck enough to run into you in one of your dreams.”
Both Casey and Murphy were extremely likeable and there were real-life issues sprinkled in to add more depth to this book. The reason I like the Falling series so much is because there is not silly drama thrown in, there is so much heart and sweet romance. Plus this series is one of the reasons why I love New Adult so much.
