Blog Tour & Giveaway: In Your Dreams (Falling #4) by Ginger Scott

In Your Dreams (Falling #4)
by Ginger Scott.
Audience/Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: March 29th 2016 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?

It’s funny that I didn’t realize there is one place in the book that really clenches the meaning of the title until I was finished and looked at the title again. Just a random thought there!

I love Ginger Scott’s writing and I don’t even look at the title anymore or the blurb I just sign up for whatever she writes. I always relax as soon as I start because it always just pulls me in. She writes moments where I am just laughing hard and also where I tear up a little at the sweet moments too. It is told in both Casey and Murphy’s points of views. Also we get to peak in on some characters from the previous book. Bonus!

I love this quote, it makes me laugh...

“Go on. It’s not much, but… it’s really not much now that I dropped it on the ground,” he grimaces. “And I brought chocolates, but I ate four of them in the car because, well…I thought I might be in there for a while-ax and all.” “Four?” I ask, noticing the completely empty top layer exposed in the small box by his hand. “Maybe six…” he smirks. “Okay, seven. Fine. Eight.”

And this quote too..

(He) manages to walk me backward into the small nook at the far end of the bar. "Oh...oh no you don't," I start, my heart beating hard as I put my palm flat on his chest, which is...hot. It's warm, I mean. But it's also hot. And hard. And really big and immovable. My eyebrows narrow, and I push harder as his arms fall to his sides and his thumbs find his pockets. "What are you, like a bouncer on the side? Were you always this... big? I look up realizing what I said and the right side of his mouth ticks up. Jedi dimple. I roll my eyes in response. "Stocky," I say, my lips pursed. "I mean stocky. And...pushy. I definitely mean pushy."

Ms Scott’s characters are always flawed and by the end they grow and you can’t help to fall in love with them. And I did as usual; fall in love with Casey and Murphy that is! Casey’s family has made him feeling like he will never amount to anything if he follows his dreams and not something that is responsible and will be relevant to the world. Casey wants to be someone in the music industry, not to sing but to make someone’s music good. It’s a hard road and may not be fruitful. He also feels like he is selfish and a jerk. But he’s not, not really.

Murphy has a wonderful family who love her. They do things together. She has a brother who has Down’s syndrome and she loves him. Casey really likes him too. Murphy sings and she is good. Casey just knows she needs to be singing for the world. He tries to help and hooks her up with his boss. Murphy has a secret too. It affects her talking with other people. She’s sweet but she is also a little shy.

This is the story of two people and how they help each other and would sacrifice for the other. Funny they never would have really talked if it hadn’t been for a song that Murphy made that was put on You Tube with Casey Coffield’s name in it. They are like strangers at first and they slowly find something in each other that they like and they want the best for the other. They are willing to be there for each other first and then fall for the other next. That’s what I really liked; how they slowly became friends and then something more!

I prefer the closed door on sex. I have learned to skim over it now. I am not a fan of the F word either. But I tolerate it. What I don’t like is some crass words and there were some here. It just makes moments of intimacy less sweet and more distasteful to me. I am pretty sure it wasn’t in the previous books and maybe it doesn’t bother you but it bothered me. But that is what I like and is no reflection on the author.

I recommend this book to lover’s of New Adult, Tums, flying, dancing at clubs, biore strips, music, overcoming your shortcomings, learning to step up to the plate, being clumsy, laughing, sacrificing and being totally selfless, finding your dreams than you might just love it too!
