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? 


★★★ 3.5 Stars ★★★

A very slow burn romance, this book gave me butterflies and made me smile.

Casey Coffield didn’t really notice Murphy Sullivan at high school, so when he see’s a recording of her singing a song dedicated to him on YouTube, he immediately embarks on a plan to find her. Casey is a DJ and an intern at a record company and believes they can help each other find fame.

“You’re special, Murphy Sullivan. I can make you believe it”

Murphy suffers from anxiety and stage fright, but her love of singing spurs her on. When the arrogant boy from school offers to make her a star, she is hesitant to trust him.

They begin a friendship, and it was so heartwarming. Deep down, Casey just wanted to be loved, and he really wanted to be a part of a loving family, and although he has a mother and 4 sisters who love him, his dad makes his home a stilted one full of tension and stress.

Casey slowly falls for Murphy, and vice versa, but both are reluctant to move forward.

“She’s beautiful. If my music had a physical form, I think it might just be her.”

A sweet, slow burning contemporary romance with a very low steam level but high on the emotions.
