☆★ MY REVIEW | ARC ☆★ SOMEONE ELSE'S OCEAN BY KATE STEWART

TITLE:Someone Else's Ocean
AUTHOR: Kate Stewart
GENRE: Romance
PUBLICATION: July 31st, 2018
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.

Koti was a safe haven, and I drank with greed from her never ending fountain of beauty and warmth. 

Someone else’s ocean: Is a full length Romance Novel by Author Kate Stewart. In this we meet ‘Ian Kemp’ and 

What I enjoy the most about this authors writing is she she writes real stories, stories that we can all relate to, connect with on all levels, there’s no need for added drama or twists and turns and that’s what made this book so magical because you could see it unfolding in real life, that’s why I loved this one so much, just for it’s simplicity, these two characters made the perfect sense. A slow burn that got it's hooks into me so early on. 

Koti and Ian made a connection when she was six and he was thirteen, though many years have gone by since they last saw each other, their parents both owned beach houses in St. Thomas, though it has been many years since these two have seen each other.

Who knew the insane man with the shitty accent and bubble butt, would turn out to be Mr. wonderful.

Koti now resides in St. Thomas full time after suffering a break down in a high powered job in New York and now works as a property manager 

She hasn’t seen Ian since she was seven years old though through his mother she knew he’d been married and has a daughter. Now he’s back on home soil in St. Thomas with a whole lot of hurt under his belt which he unleashes on Koti, Koti hopes her island can weave it’s magic on Ian and heal him like it healed her. 

Koti was such a unique character, she wasn’t perfect, she had her quirks, and a ticking time bomb to boot, loved her wine but her heart was what cemented me to her, I loved her take on the world, even down to her gold sandals. I connected with her on such an emotional level. She was like a breath of fresh air.

Ian had struggles of his own, though nothing as deep seated as Koti, his scars would heal with time and island magic, a bitter divorce, a heartbreaking secret which unfolded in the ‘Prologue’ which cut him to the core.
