Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

 

Kai’s Healing Smiles took me on an emotional rollercoaster, and I was here for it every step of the way. It was an angst-filled, drama-filled, heartache-inducing read with just the right amount of sizzling scenes and plot twists. Vivi has a way with words, delivering an angsty page-turner that hooks you in from Page One.

Grief can be a paralyzing emotion, as evidenced by Silas at the start of and throughout the story. I was happy to see his grief handled respectfully and informatively. Besides, who doesn’t love getting their hearts ripped out?

This was a breath of fresh air, with Kai and Silas balancing each other out in the best of ways. Also, everyone needs a hippie mom. And a witchy best friend. Just saying…where can I get a May in my life?

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Can a smile heal a broken heart?

Silas is mourning the loss of his wife. Every day, he is going through the motions and barely managing to keep the excruciating pain from overtaking his life. There is precisely one ray of sunshine in his days — Kai — the smiley, awkward barista at Starbucks. For some reason, Silas finds comfort being around Kai and soaks up as much light as this sweet boy could give him.

For the short time Kai has worked at Starbucks, he has secretly watched one man from afar, hoping that one day he would notice him back. He looks all mature, business-like, and always sad. One day Kai finally gets the chance to speak to him. And this is where their story begins.

Will Silas be able to let go of the past and start fresh? And will Kai be able to heal the gloomy man with his smiles?
