In Your Dreams (Falling #4)
by Ginger Scott
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?

I am pretty sure this is my favorite Ginger Scott book. It starts with a well meaning dreamer and a frightened, but talented realist and ended with two people who really came into their own.
Normally, slacker-esque leading men turn me off. My first mistake wad thinking that this actually defined Casey. He is, in fact, an ambitious young man that doesn’t always act considerately. I think we can ALL day we’ve been that person. Add the story progressed Casey grows up and just starts being a better guy. So we start with a fun guy and end with a you-are-so-amazing guy. Sounds like a winner, yeah?
Then there’s Murphy. This chick. This chick had me wrapped around her pinkie! Silver lining seer? Yup. Creative? Oh yeah. Actually over high school and even though it seems like she’s dwelling, she’s actually way to cool for that? Oh hell yeah! And she pulls off purple hair! How can you not love her?
Their friendship is heartwarming. The will they/won’t they wad never over done. The Way they pulled together during hardships, yeah I was a puddle. But the best part? I was DYING at the end. I was all but telling NOOOOOOOOOOOO yet Ginger did right them. Who am I to say how it should end? It was exactly how it should be.
