The Best Book You're Not Reading (10)



I can't believe I'm up to number 10. I really didn't think I'd be able to come up with three books never mind 10! This book is one of the first books that I reviewed ever.  I remember reading it and just falling in love with the story, the characters and the author.  She is such a fantastic person and was actually living in Singapore before heading back to the US.


This book is told in dive journals and poems.  You really get a sense of these two characters and the struggles they go through as the attraction between the two gets heavier.  Morrison weaves religion into the story without getting preachy and atheism again without getting preachy.  I liked the idea that Leesie has very deep-rooted religious feelings and Michael's only religion was diving.  Even after losing his parents in a horrific deep sea accident.

From Goodreads:


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.


Readers will be swept away by this tale of forbidden romance told in online chats, Leesie's chapbook poems, and Michael's dive log. It's as steamy as Twilight and just as clean.
