Review: Dance in the Wind by Jennifer Probst

Dance in the WindTitle: Dance in the Wind

Author: Jennifer Probst

Series: Rising Storm (Book #4)

Publication Date: October 15, 2015

Secrets, Sex and Scandals …

Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep, and secrets have the power to destroy… Get ready. The storm is coming.

During his time in Afghanistan, Logan Murphy has endured the unthinkable, but reentering civilian life in Storm is harder than he imagined. But when he is reacquainted with Ginny Moreno, a woman who has survived terrors of her own, he feels the first stirrings of hope.

Quick & Dirty: Fast moving romance for the main couple, side characters want what they can’t have and a story that I am now completely invested in. Will any of these couples actually get their own HEAs? Or will it be like most soap operas with a happy for now ending before things get stirred up again?

Opening Sentence: Logan Murphy paused in the doorway of Murphy’s Pub.

Excerpt: No

The Review:

The grass is always greener on the other side. That was all I could think about while reading the fourth installment of the Rising Storm series. Dance in the Wind was written by Jennifer Probst. I really enjoyed the writing in this installment. Surprisingly, the characters actions and feelings haven’t changed much over the course of this series, with the different authors.

I don’t want to say too much about the events that happen during Dance in the Wind but this story focuses more on Ginny Moreno and Logan Murphy. Ginny is pregnant with another man’s baby but Logan doesn’t care. She is the only one in town with eyes as haunted as his. She has gone through something so terrible that only he can understand and help her with because he needs his own therapy that only Ginny can provide.

The other residents of Storm, Texas stories are slowing moving along. Quite a few people show up and update where they are in their stories. (Although, it felt like all the other stories were about people who were unhappy with who they were with. They wanted someone else hence my grass is always greener statement at the beginning of this review.) Ginny and Logan’s story seemed to move quickly over time but everyone else is playing out slowly so I’m not sure if everyone is on the same timeline or not. They seem to be but I feel like some events are happening out of order.

I can’t wait to see how the arrival of the town’s newest visitor plays out, especially with his family. They have been the most affected by the events of the soap opera so far.

At this point, I’m in it for the long haul. I’m invested in these characters and their story. I am really intrigued to see how this series plays out, do some of these characters get an HEA or is this like a straight up soap opera, where some characters are happy for now while others are completely fine with creating conflict and making others unhappy? Ultimately, it is how these stories end will determine if I enjoyed this series or not but for now, I’m enjoying the writing and the atmosphere of this desert Texas town.

Notable Scene:

“What did you want to talk about?” she asked hesitantly.

He took a step closer. Her gaze fell on those lush lips and she remembered the feel of them sliding over hers. Giving such sweet pleasure. Adoring her in a way that shattered her heart because she never believed she’d experience something beautiful again after losing Jacob. Oh, God, focus.

“I know you’re worried about letting me be more than your friend. But I’m not going to stop, Ginny. Not until you let me put my arms around you, and kiss you, and let me take care of you. You wormed your way into my heart, and I can’t go back. So, this time, formally, I’m asking you to go out with me. In public. As more than my friend. As your boyfriend.”
