      Leesie is a Mormon She s never smoked, never tasted alcohol, doesn t make out, goes to church, and tries to live her life according to her beliefs.Michael is a surfer dude He s been raised on the ocean, in touch with nature, and has learned to express his deep emotions by having sex.When Michael s parents are killed in a freak storm, he comes to live with his grandmother in Washington He is filled with grief over his parents death and hates being uprooted from the only life he s known When he st [...]

      Woowza This book is proof that you can write a steamy novel full of romantic tension without having your characters ever actually have sex In fact, the forbidden love aspect notched the romantic tension way up.The main premise is this Michael is a wounded hot guy He was out with his parents and other members of his diving club when a hurricane hit their boat He is pretty much the sole survivor He needs somebody to help him through his nightmares and give him a reason to live again He needs to lo [...]

      2.5 starsThis book had me addictedbut i really didn t like it The writing style was cool I liked how in the beginning Michael thoughts all had a lowercase i instead of an uppercase I like was used in the end To me the lowercase signaled vulnerability and the uppercase gave me a sense of new found strength I loved how for Leesie s thoughts all of it was in chat or poems.How you were never told what was happening to her outright, how it was always told in poetry really spoke to me.I get how Michae [...]

      I picked this up in the library 2day, I FINALLY finished my now infamous Chimp Book Which I m so happy about, I was really dreading having that hanging over me all summer Thanks to My Read, I was saved Anyway, I showed it to Beth, and we both thought it looked really cute Aww love I MUST READ IT I m such a romantic sucker Anyway Leesie is this completely controlled, focused Mormon girl who s smart, and intent on getting into BYU She s shy, studious and she writes poetry KA ZAM But then this boy [...]

      REVIEW IS PRIMARILY AIMED TO LDS READERS I had been home from my mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints the church the main character Leesie belongs to a week and was in Borders eager to enjoy reading books again , and by happenstance I came upon this book which I ll be honest, caught my eye because of the cover When I read that it was about an LDS girl, and that it was written by an LDS author, that s all it took for me to buy it I was very intrigued by an LDS book being so [...]

      I learned to SCUBA dive and snorkel when I was young I ve never really been able to get enough diving in, however I miss the gradual change from cerulean top waters to the Stygian blackness of the depths, the darting fish, the lurkers I miss the denizens of the deep even the sharks and jellies and halibut of my Alaskan waters I recently plunged into a beautiful series by Angela Morrison, having already enjoyed her book, SING ME TO SLEEP.TAKEN BY STORM starts off the trilogy It s about a young ma [...]

      I can honestly say that I didn t expect to love Taken by Storm as much as I did, which is why I read it so long after it was released I had heard mixed reviews and never found time to read it When I saw that Morrison had a new book, Sing Me to Sleep, scheduled to be released in 2010 that I thought looked interesting, I remembered her 2009 debut When I was lucky enough to get a chance to read Sing Me to Sleep and ended up really enjoying it, I ran out to get Taken by Storm It took me forever to f [...]

      Taken From My Blog princessbookieMy Thoughts I was hesitate to read this one at first, I am not Mormon and than from the bad reviews I ve read, I didn t know if I should I also had seen it a few times on while browsing and told myself I would eventually read it A couple of buddies told me not to waste my time But I m glad I did We meet Leesie who is Mormon She has all these rules she has to follow so when she meets Michael, she wants to start breaking them, even though she knows she can t We me [...]

      Book is great Generally inspiring to better you and want to have a strong future Also through hard times to forgive and move on That sometimes it s okay to let your guard down and take healthy risks This book impacted my way of thinking by making me think about taking healthy risks and opening up to others and not holding my feelings in I connected with both characters, as for the girl, Lessie we re both self conscience and have trouble opening up to others Also we feel very strongly in what we [...]

      Alright, so I like to consider myself a writer And I know how vulnerable it can make you feel to have someone critique your stuff So when I m writing reviews, I normally will do anything possible to avoid blasting the negatives I love all kinds of books and I always finish them no matter what and by that time, I end up either loving them, or thinking okay, won t be reading that again But, oh my goodness ease don t waste your time on this novel First off, the characters fall in love way too fast [...]

    11. Michelle Sallay on said:

      Me being Mormon or not, I couldn t get over this completely abusive relationship between Leesie and Michael I get it, his life is destroyed and all, but the whole time they are together I felt like all he wanted to do was destroy her life with his Leesie totally came across as a mind controlled Mormon girl with no idea what she really believes She seems to go through the motions of her faith that made me as a Mormon girl myself want to cringe She is so caught up with Michael she is willing to gi [...]

    12. Tiffany on said:

      Read my full review at TheBestBookonTheBlockThe Taken by Storm trilogy has the potential to be quite a controversial series This series approaches the subject of inter faith dating and the gray lines that sometimes arise from dating a person not of your faith This book is written in a very unique way, alternating chapters between Leesie s poem book and Michael s Dive log It took me a few chapters to get used to it, but it didn t take away from the story line at all I think this author was really [...]

    13. Brenda on said:

      I was SOOOOOOO disappointed by this book I loved the way it was written, dive logs, poem, and online chatting,.but the story was such a downer I think it was supposed to be about healing and love, but it was about destruction, darkness, desperation and giving up what you want most for what you want at the moment Instead of someone helping someone who is broken, someone else gets broken herself in the process Left me sad and wondering why the author didn t resolve and fix fixable things Bummer.

    14. Sheri on said:

      Hmmm this book is very controversial to me I found it on a LDS youth must read list, and I m not sure it is a must read, or that I would let my daughter read it It is kind of steamy and the main female character is not very smart in her decisions, lets herself get very close to the line too many times.

      4.5 5Un libro po ticamente impresionante.Antes, quiero decir que mi formaci n antireligiosa desde luego sin autorizaci n de mi familia me llev a interesarme por este libro igual que por Salvaged by Stefne Miller Rese a y Losing Faith by Denise Jaden Pronto la rese a , en fin El punto era, y si Morrison no sabe introducir los temas religiosos en un libro Me mor a de los nervios s lo de pensarlo.Michael y Leesie son dos chicos completamente diferentes, salvo en la fortaleza que cada uno tiene Ella [...]

      Sometimes only love can save you.Leesie Hunt s Unbreakable Rules No Kissing at least not of the French variety No Sex hah Not even close to happening anyway No Dating Outside the Mormon Faith what would be the point ABSOLUTELY No Falling in Love with the Wrong Boy would ruin everything.Leesie thinks she has her whole life planned out get into the school of her dreams, write her poems, meet the perfect guy, and settle down Then she meets Michael a boy whose parents were killed in a diving acciden [...]

      Title Taken by StormAuthor Angela MorrisonPublisher Razorbill Penguin This book defied all of my expectations After hearing Angela on blog after blog promoting her new book, Sing Me to Sleep, this one began to creep into the edges of my TBR pile I love romance novels, so the idea of pure teen romance always gets me giddy I may never have gotten around to actually buying it if the hardcover hadn t found its way into an Ollie s Bargain Outlet shelf for four dollars Then, I simply had to pick it up [...]

      CLICK HERE TO READ MORE YA REVIEWS AT READING, EATING DREAMING I WAS BLAIR WALDORFMy review for the entire Taken by Storm trilogy Don t worry this review doesn t contain spoilers My parents raised me to avoid public conversations, especially with strangers, on two main topics politics and religion Therefore, I am assuming that blogging about one of them probably wasn t what they had in mind However, I am about to go against their advice because today I am going to blog about RELIGION Well sorta [...]

      I ll STILL GIVE IT FIVE STARS As I was looking for my twelve year old at the library, I walked by the teen section There, sitting on top of one of the selves was a book that captured my eye, Taken By Storm I admit it, I m a romance fanatic Love to read a good romance, and not necessarily the mushy kind Actually that s not really my preference in reading or writing I took the book from the metal cradle holding it and flipped it over Not much there to give me any real hint of what it was about Ins [...]

      I d read quite a few negative reviews on Taken By Storm a while back I don t remember specifics as to why some people didn t enjoy this novel all I know is that I was a little apprehensive to read it at the time However, with much praise for Angela s novel Sing Me To Sleep, I decided that I wanted to give other work a read as well.I have to say that I really enjoyed this book a lot It was nice to have a story of loss and grief told through a male perspective I liked Michael very much I felt for [...]

    21. Amanda-Lee (StoryWings) on said:

      This book draws you in and doesn t let go, even though you really want to get out.Taken by Storm is good in the same way that it is bad It depends how you look at it It features Leesie, whose voice we hear through her poems and Michael whose voice we hear through his diving logs.Leesie is the Mormon ice queen, no one touches her and no one wants to go near her, although it is a game for the guys to see who can pinch her the most.Michael is the troubled orphan, who recently lost his parents and d [...]

      My Thoughts Yeah Okay, that s a tad harsh This book was in the sale pile so I thought that it couldn t possibly hurt to check it out After returning to it multiple times I decided to just buy the stupid thing It was interesting to say the least To be honest, I probably shouldn t have picked it up because, well, I don t like reading poetry and I like grammar and I m not Mormon I ll share why I think this book was both good and bad, which it was.It was told from two perspectives but not really It [...]

      Leesie is a Mormon She s wholesome, pure and innocent and devoted to the teachings of her church Dating boys outside her church is frowned upon and the guidelines about dating in general are very strict in the Mormon world Thou shalt not be alone with a boy who is not your brother or your father No parking No necking No tongue kissing No groping And obviously, no sex unless you re married.And these are just some of the acts that are off limits But Leesie doesn t mind, not really, because she s n [...]

      Michael just moved in with his grandma, after being the sole survivor of a devastating hurricane that killed his mom and dad While his life once revolved around diving and girls, it now depends on little blue pills That is, until that first encounter with Leesie He hopes that Leesie can re awaken his animal instincts, and make him normal again Leesie is the daughter of a Mormon family, and a pretty religious Mormon herself, which is what gives her the school nickname of The Ice Queen She knows t [...]

      It s like unwrapping the biggest present when a book surprises you like TAKEN BY STORM did me I had never read anything by Morrison when I grabbed this one but had heard great things Even though I became absolutely obsessed by Morrison s writing after the first dive log, honestly, at first I wasn t too sure about reading a book based completely on poems, CHAT conversations, and observations In fact, I almost gave the book away because of it I am so glad I didn t.It kept me wondering the whole ti [...]

    26. Clarissa on said:

      This novel is unique for a couple of reasons First, is the format This book switches POV back and forth from Michael and Leesie Her POV is either written as her personal poetry or as chat logs or, sometimes, as a combination of the two Her poetry was pretty good, not awesome, but not bad I found the chat logs to be a little too kitschy, I would have preferred to read just a first person point of view, but whatever Michael s story was told through his dive logs, which I guess is fancy talk for a [...]

      Reviewed by Amber Gibson for TeensReadTooAngela Morrison s TAKEN BY STORM is a romance with heart a tale of love, not lust Leesie is a good Mormon girl, living by her faith and following the rules of her church in all realms of her life Even though kids at school think of her as a prude and call her the Ice Queen, Leesie is proud to be Mormon From the official bathroom graffiti tally, Leesie is deemed by her male classmates to have the best behind in school However, even the most persistent of t [...]

      It may seem odd, but for someone who has attended Catholic schools their whole life and been firmly entrenched in church, I really hate overly religious literature It always comes off as cliched and tripe and not at all what I think of when I think of my faith I got this feeling while reading Taken By Storm No matter how hard I tried, I could not like Taken By Storm Maybe it was the overly restricted Mormon faith Leesie had I was flabbergasted when Leesie started talking about the different leve [...]

      I did a tour stop for this book sometime last year and received a free copy, I ve just got round to it on my pile It was one that I wasn t sure I wanted to read I don t tend to do books that focus on religion as I find them too preachy This book wasn t too preachy, it depicts the Morman faith well, but I felt there was a lot of repetition One of the main characters Leesie brings up her faith in practically every sentence, no my faith doesn t allow it , I can t it s not what we believe that sort [...]
