Not sure if this is in violation of your request to find a book that doesn't treat Kotlin as an alternative to Java, but thought I'd share nonetheless. Neil Smyth has a book (here's a preview: https://www.ebookfrenzy.com/pdf_previews/Kotlin35EssentialsPreview.pdf) that does focus on Android development but has pretty good coverage on Kotlin (Chapters 11 through 17). You can use the Kotlin on-line playground for experimentation = https://try.kotl.in. Neil Smyth and his publisher seem to be pretty good about refreshing it as new versions of Android Studio come out. I have the 3.3 book and since then, there's been 3.4 and 3.5; I assume that 3.6 is coming soon.
