I jumped straight into this one after finishing Unbroken Connection. It's a nice read and a good ending but nothing amazing.
Michael's in a tough spot but I'm glad that the crisis brings about a bond between Michael and Leesie's family. They're finally on the same page. They all want to see Leesie pull through this.
I love how Michael respects Leesie's dad.
And I loved the way he protects Leesie from herself.
Leesie has become a whole other creature.
It's funny how Michael is so attune to

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 save politics for …well hopefully NEVER!)

I have loved the Taken by Storm series from book one and has so lucky to win a copy of Cayman Summer from Angela's cayman summer blog.

I loved being back with Leesie & Michael. Leesie is still stugling with the death of her brother Phil. While her and Michael are in the cayman island she try's to push away her morman believes I loved how Michael helps Leesie and really tries to stay stonger for her and help her keep to her believes.

I loved all of this book and I cryed my eyes out like a baby at t

An incredibly disappointing end to a terrific beginning. I kinda wish I hadn't read this wonder people think Mormons are weird.

It's a shame, too, because Angela Morrison's writing is incredible--unique and poetic--but this book gets hijacked somewhere in the middle by Jack Weyland. And that's not a good thing.

I'll just pretend it's a two-book series and leave it at that.

" En la novela debut de Morrison para jovenes adultos, TAKEN BY STORM, Michael hace frente a una increible perdida, pero encuentra a Leesie. UNBROKEN CONNECTION es la historia de Leesie. En la última página, ella está rota y maltratada-... Física y espiritualmente. Morrison prometió a sus lectores no dejarla de esa forma.

Cayman Summer is the much-awaited finale to Leesie and Michael's story that began with a high-school romance in Taken By Storm, travelled through Thailand and BYU in Unbroken Connection and sweeps you to Cayman on the final leg of the journey.

Whilst Taken By Storm was a personal struggle for Leesie between faith and desire, between saving the grief-stricken Michael and keeping her feet on the ground in the process, Unbroken Connection was a test of their relationship, taking the two to the oppos

Por fin la gran conclusión de esta trilogía.
El gran amor de Michel y Lessie se pone aun más a prueba aquí que en los otros libros.
Lessie ha decidido no creer más en nada, saltarse todas y cada una de sus reglas y hacer lo que le venga en la gana, en fin, según ella irá al infierno.
Michael no puede estar más asustado. Cuando en un principio eso era lo que quería, ahora le da miedo ver a la nueva y loca Lessie, quiere a su religiosa y buena Lessie de vuelta.
Y se propone devolverla.

For the third book, I may say NO ANGELA, sorry. It's was a big disappointment, really.

The first book was amazing! an incredible beginning I need to know W H? between M and L, so I bought the second one and it was good enough so I bought the last one but...

I’ve been waiting a long time to read CAYMAN SUMMER by ANGELA MORRISON. I read her first book in the series, TAKEN BY STORM, a few years back and couldn’t wait for the next. But wait I would. Due to a change in publishers it took longer than expected. Next would be UNBROKEN CONNECTION. I enjoyed that one as well. With stacks of books to read, I finally was able to read CAYMAN SUMMER.

I wouldn’t say the TAKEN BY STORM series is packed full of surprises and adventure, yet it will keep you turning

I read the first book a few years ago and loved it - had no idea it was part of a series.

While there are aspects of this book that I really like - Leesie's falling away, Michael's absolute devotion to her - I really didn't like the Mormonily-ever-after ending. There are so many LDS fiction cliches this series avoided and the writing is so fresh and interesting, that it was disappointing to have such an unrealistic ending.

Spoilers, if you care: I think it's realistic that Michael decides to be b

This was my favorite book of the series. I loved each book, but this one just brought out a side of Michael that awed me. Leesie's struggle to forgive herself and Michael's struggle to find faith in God were very touching and poignant. The style of writing is wonderful--with Leesie's poems, Michael's dive log (his diary) and chat talks with Kim. Even though I tried to drag this book out to enjoy a little longer than a day, I wasn't successful. The story and characters got into my heart and mind. ...more

This one is a hard one for me to rate. There were aspects of this book and the whole trilogy that I loved and would give 5 stars-- other aspects I didn't like so much (it's clean--but still a little lusty for my taste). I loved the relationship between the characters and really enjoyed watching it grow throughout the 3 books. I loved how they each took turns being strong for the other. That give and take, the sacrifices they made and the deep connection they had for each other was compelling, es ...more

I think I might have enjoyed this book in the series more than the previous ones. The relationship between Leesie and Michael continues to progress. Leesie is struggling with her faith after the accident and Michael tries to help her. I love how Michael helped her find her way back from the dark place she was in and in the process begins to develop his own faith and testimony. The end wraps up a little quickly for the form of a quick run down of the last 3 years and what happened for t ...more

I loved the first two books and was anxious for the third. I followed along on Angela Morrison's site while she let us into the writing process but it wasn't fast enough for me. So I decided to wait and get the book. I really didn't know how it would end. I couldn't see it, and neither could Leesie. I loved the story. It was heart breaking and tender. Michael is a good man! I cried for Leesie as she struggled to heal both physically and spiritually, my heart went out to both of them. I just didn ...more

Michael and Leesie drew me in and wouldn't let go. I read the entire series in no time, and the ending did not disappoint! This third installment of the TAKEN BY STORM series made me realize why I like Michael's character so much. Lessie saves Michael in TAKEN BY STORM. Miachael saves Lessie in CAYMAN SUMMER. I loved the change that took place in both of the lead characters by the end of the series. ...more

I'm really only giving it 3 1/2 stars. It is pretty cheesy. I do love cheese though .... the hero is just do darn dreamy in this one! Honorable and yet wild, who doesn't love that combination. One review I read of this book said that every mormon cliche is in this one and I have to agree. Just keep reminding yourself (and all teenage girls out there) that this is just a novel and holds NO resemblence to real life. ...more

Mixed feelings... I don't know if it was because it was more emotional or longer, but I got a little bogged down, started reading it backwards, chapter by chapter. Kind of just glad it's over. I think I liked the first one the best in this trilogy. ...more
