Kai by Michelle Abbott on Booksprout

4.6 Stars
From 14 Reviews

My name is Kai Okamoto. I deal drugs. Trade escapism for cold, hard cash.
Born to a British mother and a Japanese father, I grew up poor, hungry, and alone. Hiding from the monsters at our door. The debt collectors.

I’ve worked hard to escape my past. I’m not that frightened little boy anymore. I’m wealthy, secure, and sure of myself. At least I was, until I met Lily.

Lily is a good girl. The kind of girl I should stay away from. I should, but I can’t.

I hate lying to her, but if she finds out who I am, what I do. I won’t see her for dust.

A standalone, bad boy romance, set in England.

sad

by Ashley Magruder

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review... Kai is a book that any one would want to read... It has the twists and turns... Kai and Lily was a sweet couple but Kai needed to come out with what he really was and that was the problem... When he did decide to finally come out with what he did every occupation it hurt it hurt Lily that first off he lied to her and then also he is doing something that could get him hurt somewhere that nobody could get to in time to save him or to find him... But skipping all of that and going to the end it turned out to be a wonderful book... Now it is up to you to decide whether you want to read the book or not because I left all the nice juicy stuff in the book...

Thought Provoking Romance

by Aunt G

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Kai by Michelle Abbott is a very good book. I love the uniqueness of this storyline. Kai, the lead male character is a drug dealer. Other than making that choice because he was poor, he is everything you could want in a hero. Loving, caring and determined to take care of his mother. Kai's world is rocked when he meets Lily. Lily is a good girl and Kai knows she wouldn't approve. Can their relationship survive such a secret? Read the book to find out. I like that Kai's profession is not glorified in the book and that it raises interesting moral questions for the reader.

The Truth Will Come Out

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Kai is 21 years old,British/Japanese handsome and a genuine "nice" guy, but with a dreadful occupation...he is a drug dealer. This may put many people off from reading the story but it is actually well written, from both his and Lily's POV, and you "hear" why he does what he does. Still not my cup of tea but, as I said, it is a interesting storyline and flows nicely so that you're drawn into the story. Lily is a young art student who hates anything to do with drugs. She works part time in a supermarket and her pay isn't put in her bank account one week and she refuses the rather dubious offer of a loan from her seedy manager. Her last money she pays her electricity bill. She meets Kai and falls for him as he keeps form her his chosen profession. Kai knows that he isn't the kind of young man that Lily would want to be with if she knew the truth but he is so attracted to her that he wants a chance to get to know her. This book is for young adults and it isn't my usual genre but it was well worth reading and it got to the stage that I needed to know what would happen when the truth, as always happens, is revealed. I have sympathy for Kai and he and Lily seem so good for one another. This is the first book that I have read by Michelle Abbott and I will look for more of her stories in future. Recommended.

Kai

I liked Kai, I loved the bond between him and his mother, the fact that he was willing to do whatever it took to try and make a better life for the two of them. But isn’t it always the case that opposites attract, and in this case it spoke volumes because Lily is everything that Kai is n as much as she is struggling to keep her head above water but unlike Kai. She faces her situation head on and would never consider taking the same path that Kai has, she loathes drugs and drug dealers but when Kai keeps who and what he is from her, it is obvious that’s he is going to have to face a painful decision when that omission finally hits home. I could not put the book down until the end .

An easy and enjoyable read

Lily and Kai are the main characters in this story. They make a sweet couple. They are the opposites of each other. The chemistry and scenes are hot and steamy. I like the aspects of the story and the plot is okay.
It is very fast paced but that suits the story. Kai is a drug dealer with conscience and a bit too sweet but he is likeable. Lily is the sweet girl and has not the easiest time at the present.
I can recommend this book if your are into a bit dark romance.
