Someone Else's Ocean by Kate Stewart
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 have to give kudos to Kate on this one.
Not only is this a beautiful story but an emotional one as well.
Ian and Koti are two broken souls needing to escape life’s pressures and failures. They escape to the beautiful island of St. Thomas. Their stories is raw, filled with pain.
Neither are looking for love but along the way things change and their feelings change. Discovering themselves, each other and a potential future along the way.
Their journey is like the ocean, tumultuous and unforgiving and then calm and beautiful,
Ian and Koti have chemistry that is explosive. Their humorous banter had me laughing. Their heartache had me sad and the drama of it all had me anxious.
Such an emotional and highly recommended read.
