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 includes mature subject matter that may not be appropriate for readers under the age of 18.

In Your Dreams by Ginger Scott

Casey Coffield is his father’s failure.  Determined to follow his dreams rather than his father’s structured plans, Casey’s made a name for himself as a DJ.  Now working for a big producer, he’s one step closer to his ultimate goal — opening his own studio.  And when he sees a video of a girl singing at a local bar, a song that can only be about him, he becomes obsessed with finding her.  Her voice and style are golden, and he’s sure he can bring her to the attention of people who can make her a star.  But he’s also curious to find out what he’s done to make a girl from high school that he can’t even remember write a song aimed at him.

The Verdict:  I’m usually pretty reluctant to pick up a book that centers around music.  It’s not that I don’t like music; it’s that books that focus on it almost always miss the mark with me.  From lyrics I find shallow and trite to comparisons with songs and artists I can’t stand, it’s really hard to not to lose me when a big part of the story is music.  And that goes triple for anything to do with clubs and DJs.  But it’s Ginger Scott, and if anyone can make me love a story, it’s her.

We met Casey in previous books in the series.  He was Houston’s somewhat obnoxious and always entertaining best friend, and he’s all that and more in In Your Dreams.  An aspiring DJ who’s done pretty well for himself so far, he’s on the outs with his overachieving family, but he’s still happy with the path he’s chosen.

Murphy Sullivan is the girl he never noticed in high school.  In fact, when he sees her on video singing a song about him, he doesn’t have a clue who she is.  And even when he finds out he went to school with her, she doesn’t ring a bell.  Still, he’s driven to find her, figure out why his name is in her song, and bring her to the attention of the big-time producer he’s working for now.

Murphy doesn’t really want much to do with Houston.  She’s a study in juxtaposition — shy and introverted yet confident in who she is and cool as hell.  The drama and music nerd in school, she’s found her place on stage with a guitar, writing and singing everything she feels.  Casey Coffield popping up in her life isn’t anything she expected, but despite her attempts to keep him at arm’s length, a fragile friendship is established.  And before long, those feelings run deeper than either of them expects.

As always, Ginger Scott perfectly captures the awkwardness of opposites attracting, the slow burn of a developing relationship based on more than mutual attraction, and the many nuances of love based in reality.  The characters are authentic, flawed, and impossible not to relate to.  Their relationship, while as dramatic as any relationship will naturally be, wasn’t pockmarked with contrived scenarios but rather realistic, organic growth over time.  Casey and Murphy pulled me in, broke my heart, and had me just dying for that perfectly believable happily ever after that only Ginger Scott can create.  If you haven’t read every one of her books, you’re missing out on everything.
