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. **

TeriLyn's thoughts: **In Your Dreams generously provided by Wordsmith Publicity in exchange for an honest review.**

Ginger Scott never ceases to amaze the New Adult book love within me. She captures this precarious time in our lives so eloquently with characters for whom you can imagine being friends with or at least relating to their struggles and inner demons in some profound way. Additionally, Scott's writing easily grabs readers attention and makes you hold on for the entire ride. The story of Casey Coffield and Murphy Sullivan is no different. 

In this fourth addition of the Falling series we see two characters quite a bit different than the previous books. While In Your Dreams can be read as a stand alone because it has two different main characters, I highly recommend reading the entire series first. Told from the dual points of view of both Casey and Murphy, Scott takes us on a journey where two people are forced together by quite unique circumstances that turns into a great friendship and eventually something more meaningful than either of these people could have expected. 

Arrogant, selfish, and secretly tortured by demons Casey Coffield is a hero who showed much growth and maturity. He was favorite kind of hero because of the leaps and bounds he made within himself and for those he cares about most. Murphy Sullivan - quiet, slightly introverted, and full of unspeakable talent makes you feel for her from the very moment you meet her. Together, the two of them wouldn't make sense on paper. But because of who they are innately without showing the world the give each other a tenderness and brand of confidence neither of them finds anywhere else. 

As usual, the secondary characters in the story lend a hand to the journey. Old favorites return here and leave their mark while new ones surface to give new friendships. With each review I write for a Ginger Scott book I constantly find myself saying how much I think she owns the NA genre and it's no less here. There were parts of the book that drug a tad for me and where I wished we could see a little more passion but never once did I feel detached from these two characters. Scott's ability to connect readers to her characters stays firmly rooted with In Your Dreams just as it has with her previous titles. There's no shortage of sweet throughout this journey of two people discovering who can they be as individuals and how they can soar together. I definitely recommend for any New Adult fans.
