OUR REVIEW:

Shel: This series has been so much fun--each and every character in this series gives me something to consider and I absolutely love how Ginger Scott ALWAYS includes a spectrum of diversity in her characters. I know I can always count on Ginger to give me more than just the same old stuff. Court: Right, I have come to expect the unexpected in a way that is pure Ginger Scott and we LOVE IT! 

Shel: In Casey's story--Ginger Scott surprised me. At first I thought Casey was a cocky little thing and I wasn't quite sure what to make of him. The more I got to know him and understand his thought process, the more I appreciated him, despite some of his arrogance, and by the end I downright adored him. 
Murphy, Casey's love interest, was so fun. I liked that for her bold outward appearance and her sharp tongue, she was really this soft, tender, and fairly shy character. I forget that performers aren't always these huge, gregarious personalities and she was not one of those. Murphy is really just unexpected--she's not completely sweet and innocent but she's not bitter and closed off--she's flawed and honest and wonderful. Court: It took me a bit to fall back into who Casey was. But once i remembered him, and how close he is to Houston...and found out piece by piece, and page by page the struggles he was dealing with...how he was trying to pursue his dreams and carve his own path even though that meant going against what others wanted for him. That is a hard pill to swallow, and you'll have to read it and see what I mean but Casey is so much stronger than he gives himself credit for the entire book! And Murphy. First, the name is great. Second, the song...is so great. The beginning of this book just brings you in and hooks you and won't let go! It is clever, and original and the story is just a well crafted blend of putting yourself out there even though it might not work out. And that is hard and relateable for anyone of us.

Shel: Casey and Murphy worked well for me. I liked their chemistry, the way that they cared for each other, looked out for each other, and took care of each other. I loved how music and family (hi Lane!) were incorporated in a way that enhanced the storyline of Casey and Murphy. And I absolutely am crazy for how this novel ended--it's a little different. The chapter before the epilogue was hard and emotional and so realistic and it made the epilogue that much more because of the choices made in the last chapter.  Court: Lane was a great character. Houston still is! And Murphy's parents are funny, and present in a way that I wish parents were all of the time. I like when family is a cohesive presence, whether positive or negative, in our books because it isn't realistic for us or them to go through life with no one (or in my happy, go lucky, semi-delusional perspective that is). The music. Just Whoa! Ginger Scott has this innate ability to take whatever theme she focuses her novel around, and makes it so flawless and beautiful. I felt everything those people were feeling by being at Casey's shows just by the words she chose to portray it. It is a beautiful thing.

Shel: I always love thinking back to my teen and college years, especially when Ginger Scott is taking me there. I definitely recommend that you read her books and keep a look out for what she's got up her sleeve--I happen to know it's pretty fantastic.Court: Exactly! She makes us nostalgic for those feelings, and teaches us something no matter our age with her young adults and coming of age stories. I have yet to come away unaffected, and I hope that never changes. I am absolutely in awe of this book, and can't wait to read it again. (BTW, THAT COVER Y'ALL!)

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?
