After reading the synopsis for Kai I decided to purchase the book and review it. I have to say, it was a good buy. Read my review below.
Title: Kai by Michelle Abbott
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.

I read this book in two days. It was a very enjoyable read. The characters felt like they were my friends. I love how the author took the time to build the relationships, and immerse us into their world.
There were no frills or pretending with this story. The characters felt real as they struggled with everyday problems.
Mostly, what I loved about this story was that the female was no damsel in distress. She held her own and stood her ground which was refreshing.
There were some unexpected twists and turns that I really appreciated. Hats off to the author for taking us along on this journey.
I recommend this book if you love strong, independent women, romance, and an alpha male who is not overbearing. This story has heart and reminds us that second chances do exist.
About the Author
Michelle Abbott lives in the UK and hates describing herself in 3rd person.
She loves to write new adult romance about heroes who begin as the underdog and are protective of their girl.
She’s an avid reader of romance, is addicted to coffee and loves wine and chocolate, so yeah, not the most healthy eating and drinking habits 🙂 She spends way too much time online when she should be writing. She collects teddy bears and occasionally knits a couple of rows on a sweater she started years ago, which she may eventually finish in time to wear for her funeral 🙂
