Taken by Storm by Angela Morrison

"Leesie Hunt has many rules: No kissing. No sex. No dating outside the Mormon faith. When Michael Walden—a deep-sea diver who lost his parents in a violent hurricane—arrives in town, Leesie sees someone who needs her. They fall for one another, even though his dreams are tied to the depths of the ocean and hers to salvation above. Will their intense chemistry be too strong to resist? Leesie and Michael must make the hardest choice of their lives: whether to follow their beliefs or their hearts." -GoodReads

I really enjoyed this book. It was extremely well written and I was totally absorbed in the story of Leesie and Michael. They have amazing chemistry together, which is very evident throughout the story. Their relationship has several ups and downs and you’re rooting for them to figure out a way to be together (not meaning sex, but a real relationship). Although Michael doesn’t understand her beliefs he cares for her and tries to respect them. The majority of the story is told from Michael’s “dive book” and you can’t help but feel the pain he is suffering from the tragic loss of his parents. He makes some mistakes along the way, but finally learns how to let go of his guilt and find a fresh path for himself. I’m not sure I’m pleased with how the book ends, they both have achieved certain dreams/goals and overall I’m happy with the choices they make. I’m hoping there is a sequel, although it feels like it is more of a stand-alone novel. A great novel that I think everyone would enjoy!
