Taken by storm by Angela Morrison

Leesie Hunt has many rules: No kissing. No sex. No dating outside the Mormon faith. When Michael Waldenaa deep-sea diver who lost his parents in a violent hurricaneaarrives 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.

I'm kind of on the fence with this book.  Sure, the romance between Leesie and Micheal was a lot more believable, but I didn't like either one of their characters.  While reading this book it was hard for me to be able to connect with Leesie.  I'm a strong believer in my faith as well but Leesie ended up annoying me throughout the book.

And don't get me started on Micheal!  Hmm....I just didn't like him.  I couldn't apreciate him as a character and sure he had just suffered from a horrible accident but...lets just say I wasn't feeling him.

I found the amount of fighting Leesie and Micheal did was insufferable.  There was so much of it that I couldn't really apreciate their relationship even though it had so much potential.

I think Ms Morrison is a fabulous writer who definetly has a bunch of bestseller' up her alley but I didn't really enjoy this book.  Maybe it was because of the fact that I had high hopes for this book, after reading Sing me to sleep.  But unfortunately, Taken by storm does not win the moody seal of approval.
