Cover Reveal - IN YOUR DREAMS by Ginger Scott

A Falling Series Spin-Off
NA Contemporary Romance
Cover photo shot by Frank Rodriguez - DLRfoto
Scheduled to release: March 29, 2016

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? 

“Want to hear a cut?”

She folds her hands around her body and nods, her eyes bright. I pull out the 

Ratatat song she was listening to with her brother and let it start rolling, setting 

the intro to loop. Then I break up the beat with some new layers, so the song is 

recognizable, but unique.

“That’s so unbelievably cool,” she says, her body moving to the rhythm.

I’m about to blow her mind. I’ve had this planned since late last night, and the 

effect is better than I could have dreamed. I want to see her dance. I wait just 

long enough, smiling at her and moving my head along with the vibe until I feel 

it in my gut. There’s always a moment—it’s what makes me good. I’ve had it 

since the first time I touched a soundboard. I can sense when the craving is at 

it’s peak, when the room wants more. It’s like a slow-building orgasm, and I 

bring everyone to the brink, feeling their bodies fall in line with the count, 

giving their minds over to the melody. This is the high I was talking about, and 

Murphy—she’s there. Her eyes are closed and her body is moving more than I 

think she realizes, and it’s the hottest thing I’ve ever seen.

I’m about to be her undoing without even laying a hand on her.

My finger poised over the button, I wait until it’s just right to let the first drop 

go. I picked Nina Simone because she’s jazzy, just like Murphy, and she’s full 

of fire and there’s a swagger in her song—the moment her voice breaks 

through the beat, Murphy knows. Her eyes drag open and her body keeps 

swaying. Baby grays are looking at me and smiling. Her chest is rising and 

falling off rhythm even though her body keeps tempo. It’s because I’m in her 

head now—my song is in her head, and she’s feeling something different, 

something more.

The break I built is coming up, and I know it—she’ll shiver. I step close, letting 

my headphones slip around my neck. I come closer and watch her for a sign 

that I shouldn’t move more. She doesn’t stray—she’s drunk in seconds, and she 

wants me near. The break happens, and her heat tilts back as she closes her 

eyes, and that goddamned perfect neck is exposed and my lips come close 

enough to touch it. I don’t, but I linger, letting her feel my breath on her skin, 

small bumps rising in reaction. Chemistry and biology—beautiful. My nose 

grazes just below her ear as my hands carefully slide on her body, careful to 

touch in just the right place above her waist. She doesn’t flinch because she’s 

given over to the feeling—the performance of it all. That’s all this ever is. I fill 

rooms with pheromones and bodies become mine.

Right now, Murphy is completely in my control. My hands urge her to turn, 

and her body spins slowly, every curve brushing against me until her back is 

flush with my chest. I drag one hand around her waist and up her spine, my 

palm flat as it follows the line of her zipper, my thumb feeling the jagged metal 

and my mind imagining dragging it the opposite way. I close my own eyes as 

my hand pushes against her neck and my fingers find her hair, sweeping it up in 

my hold so my mouth can play against her ear. I bring my hand down carefully, 

both of us moving together to the sexy beat I built just for her, and I hold my 

breath as my hand opens wide and splays under her breasts, holding her tight 

against me.

My thumb close to god, I feel her lungs grow inside her, her breathing deep and 

desperate. I could take her now, but that…that would be a mistake. I only 

wanted to get this close—to feel this much. I wanted to see if my powers 

worked on her as well. They do, but hers have the equal effect on me. My 

mouth watering and my cock growing hard, my eyelids grow heavy as my self-

made rules fight against my desire.

Leaning into her, my lips press against the inside of her neck, marking her with 

a cool kiss as my tongue takes one, tiny taste of her skin before my mouth 

finds her ear.

“This is what I do, Murphy. I…can make people…do…whatever…I…want,” I 

whisper, and her breath falls away completely, her head dropping back against 

me, her hands moving to my wrists and holding me with a tight desperation 

that begs for more.

My eyes close, and I indulge for a few seconds, dragging my hand up her body 

again, careful to not touch her too intimately despite how badly my hand wants 

to go there. I trace her bare shoulder and move to her neck, my thumb running 

over the zipper that it now considers the enemy. I push her slowly in front of 

me, giving us just enough space for me to let my head fall against the back of 

hers so my eyes can rake over the perfect line of her neck one last time. My 

mouth moves forward, wanting to taste more, but I puff out a breath instead

and let go of her completely, knowing a second longer is the difference between 

being able to stop.

I kill the sound. An abrupt edge. And Murphy takes a step forward, as if I’ve 

just released her from a trance. I have. But I can put her back under it any 

time I want. And I intend to.
