Publisher's Summary

Now a number one best seller in inspirational romance!

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 didn't see the hype on this one. I couldn't connect with the characters at all, or did their relationship seem believable. The audiobook wasn't cohesive with Jason not doing the accent and Lila did (which wasn't the best). She really should have just dropped Ian's accent all together, maybe the audio would have been more enjoyable.

Worth every minute!

I couldn't set this book aside enough to do anything productive. Nothing holds my attention like that! These characters made me laugh and broke my heart. None of my husband's did that, Ever.

Endometriosis Representation

First off, I love have representation of Endometriosis in a book. So many of us Women suffer with Endometriosis and are ignored, so it is wonderful to have representation in the books we read to escape. Endo Sisters should read it!! General Anxiety Disorder and Endometriosis are real conditions and too have our main heroine suffering with both makes her even more real. The story taking place in St, Thomas makes it definitely an escape.

The Narrator Lila Winters did an absolutely fantastic job. She differentiated between the three main characters of the book graciously. Jason Clark was in the book minimally just for small chapters from Ian's perspective.

I can say I was sad when the book ended and I very may well listen to it again.

Took me by surprise!

Someone Else's Ocean really too my by surprise. I wasn't expecting the punch to the gut it gave me, but wow did I love Ian and Koti's story! It was fun and flirty, it was intense, it was just all around wonderful.
I really liked both Koti and Ian. She was such an interesting character, different from many of your usual heroines with the issues she had to deal with. I liked her spunk and determination.
Ian pretty much stole my heart right from the get-go, and it hurt for him- I can't imagine the turmoil he was going through with that out of the blue revelation. I mean, how does someone deal with that kind of news?
This was a very entertaining, very heartfelt story and I enjoyed it so much.

I loved Jason's narration, I'd listen to him all day! I wish Lila hadn't tried to give Ian an accent, it was detracting to be honest, when she was portraying his character. It was just felt odd with her giving him an accent and Jason didn't. That really was the only drawback.

Damn this was good

I’m not good at reviews, so I don’t often write them. I don’t know if I loved this so much because of my own life’s lack of romance (just feeling like a totally vulnerable, literally hopeless sap) or if it was purely the storyline, writing and narrators. Whatever it was, it was good and had everything and more that a great love story needs (including some very nice sex scenes!). Now I just want to go crawl into a hole and die, but that’s another story!

Unique

This story was not your typical love story. Nor was it your typical age gap relationship.

They were each broken in one way or another and that normally turns me off but Kate weaved a lovely story with these two.

I love that they were childhood friends and had that little snippet of history to enhance their initial rekindling of their friendship and start of their love story.

I hope we get Jasmin’s story next! She was so much fun!!

Someone Else’s Ocean

The love these two share is huge and forever. Although in the beginning because of some shocking revelations Ian is a bit of a jerk to Koti, he is able to make it better and apologize. Once their friendship blooms into something more you can’t help for a happy ever after. There are definitely some battles that will be had before that happens though. Read this book if you want to see how it ends... you won’t want to miss it.

Absolutely Loved It

Amazing narration and story line. Koti and Ian are childhood friends that hadn't seen each other in years. Koti living in St Thomas to escape the life she lived in NY and her mothers extremely high expectations. She's made a life for herself working with her friend managing rental properties to vacationing guest. She also rents out the home of Ian's parents which is directly next to her families home and where she lives on the island. One day Ian shows up, devastated and their friendship slowly begins again. They slowly start to open up to each other and they start to slowly fall in love. This was one of the best friends to lovers I've read. Totally worth my time.
