The first time I met Ian Kemp in the sparkling blue waters of St. Thomas, I was six years old and we shared a summer beneath the stars.
The second time I met Ian Kemp, he was a shell of the boy I once knew. Turbulent and infuriating, he refused my friendship at every turn. Like me, he was a casualty of life’s cruelty, but we were planets apart.
We’d both sought refuge on the island, hoping to find our anchor. Instead, we found each other and managed to reclaim our stars...until we both got swept away.
I feel like I’ve been on a vacation to St. Thomas thanks to Kate Stewart ‘s beautiful writing. Her imagery is spectacular and I could easily picture this island before me. It was so vivid to me. The ocean, the people and the weather. The scenery was portrayed effortlessly that there was no doubt that I was on St. Thomas.
Koti and Ian have history together. They were kids but that doesn’t make it less memorable. When she was six and he was thirteen a friendship was formed. Now many years later they’re standing in front of one another on St. Thomas. Both with a whole lot of baggage in tow. Their first meeting is haunting and intense. Minimal words are spoken but it’s captured so poignantly because of Stewart’s flawless prose.
Ian is a mess because of a divorce and takes it out on Koti. It’s causes a lot of tension with so much heat and chemistry. Their bantering is fabulous and fun. I couldn’t stop smiling.
Koti has also been running from something like Ian. Thanks to the island and their slowly growing friendship they start to find their way back. Back from being or feeling lost to a new life. One they start enjoying with each other.
Koti suffers from anxiety. The island has a profound impact on Koti. She finds herself and starts living her life for her and not what her parents wants and expects of her.
Ian is one moody and angry guy when he first shows up on St. Thomas. Isolating himself but Koti and her wonderful ways slowly breaks Ian’s walls down. A cute dog Disco helps too.
Their friendship is incredible with them going down memory lane when they were kids. At the same time they’re trying to fight the sizzling attraction cause Ian is only on St. Thomas for a limited time. When they finally give in it’s a relief and a beautiful release for the both of them. Their connection is freaking captivating and so intense giving me all the feels. I knew it was going to hurt later on cause their time together was limited. They find comfort and solace in one another. A lot of soul searching too given their current circumstances.
Someone Else’s Ocean hit close to home for me. I could easily relate to feeling lost and just needing an escape. For Koti and Ian St. Thomas is the perfect escape. Their blooming relationship is a beautiful journey. Not only do they fall in love but they also find themselves and their true desires in life.
Someone Else’s Ocean is truly the perfect summer read. Full of laughs thanks to Koti’s fabulous friend Jasmine, a heartwarming bond between Ian and his daughter Ella and two soul mates finally finding each other on an Island. What more can a reader ask for in a romance.
