Book Tour: Taken by Storm by Angela Morrison

Hello Readers,


Today I'm pleased to be part of the promo tour for Angela Morrison's Taken by Storm. I'll be including a synopsis, the cover, and an excerpt from the novel. But first, let's meet the author.

Angela Morrison is the award-winning YA author of Taken by Storm (Books 1-3) and Sing me to Sleep. She graduated from Brigham Young University and holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. She grew up in Eastern Washington on the wheat farm where Taken by Storm is set. She's an advanced NAUI, Nitrox certified scuba diver. The hurricane that kills Michael's parents was inspired by a real-life diving accident. 
After over a decade in Canada, Switzerland, and Singapore, Angela and her family are happily settled in Mesa, Arizona. She enjoys speaking to writers and readers of all ages about her craft. She has four children--mostly grown up--and the most remarkable grandson in the universe.

Angela can be reached at her, Website, her Facebook account, her Twitter account, Goodreads, or her Blog. You can also visit the Contest Link here or buy her book at one of these links: Amazon Author PageTaken By Storm, Unbroken Connection (Book 2)Cayman Summer (Book 3)

And now for the synopsis,

Mormon girl Leesie has life figured out until devastated Michael lands in her small town high school. He needs her like no one has before. A rare journey into a faithful LDS teen’s intimate struggle. 

"[Morrison] handles the topics of religion and premarital sex gracefully without passing judgment. The message has less to do with religion than learning to respect and cherish others while staying true to one’s own beliefs.”  – Publisher’s Weekly, starred review

This books looks incredible. First off, I love this genre and secondly, it looks really really good. I definitely want to read this one. Plus, I really really love the cover.

I know I'll definitely be reading this one. And now for the excerpt. Out of the three options, I chose this one because it was captivating:

I’m lost to his firm chest,

his slender fingertips, his long wavy hair,
his mouth sucking my bottom lip—
The world spins, the stars shift,
and I can’t see anything except his smoky
gray eyes gazing into mine.
You scare me, whispers
from my mouth across his.
Good, he breathes into me. 
I need you to save me.

Chills running down my spine. That snippet definitely caught my interest. What do you guys think?

Love,

Danica Page
