An obligation is a course of action that someone is required to take, whether legal or moral.
At six years old, Myla was sent to a family her father and mother had chosen for her when they knew their time on earth was almost up. What they were unaware of was what they thought would be her safe haven would become her living hell.
Kai has been watching Myla from afar since he took over the family business from his father and inherited the responsibility of keeping her safe. When word gets back to Kai that Myla is not only in danger, but that his assets are being compromised, he immediately jumps into action and does the only thing that can be done at the time by marrying her.
Neither Myla nor Kai would have thought that something that started off as a farce would become the most important thing either of them could've ever done.
“Everyone is looking for you.”
I turn my head, pulling my hair out of my face as I watch a boy I’ve never seen before climb up the stairs and into my tree house.
“Who are you?” I ask him as he sits across from me.
“Kai,” he smiles, looking around. He looks a lot different than the other kids I know. His hair is long, and his skin is a lot darker than mine. “Why are you hiding?”
I shrug and look away from him. Daddy was yelling earlier; he was so mad that he was turning red. Then Mommy started crying, and Daddy started yelling louder. I heard Mommy telling Daddy that he had to send me away. I don’t want to go away. I try to be good, but sometimes, I forget to listen.
“Why are you crying?”
I look up at him and wipe my face. “I’m scared,” I whisper, wiping my nose.
“Come on. I’ll protect you,” he says, holding his hand out to me.
Then my mommy calls my name again. I look at his hand, move Mr. Bear under my arm, and put my hand in his.
“Myla!” Mommy yells, running towards me.
I can tell she has been crying again.
“Where did you go?” Her hands grab my shoulders and she shakes me hard.
“It’s my fault. I asked her to show me the tree house,” Kai tells her.
She stops shaking me then looks at him. “You shouldn’t have done that. You knew we were looking for her,” she says angrily her head.
“I’m sorry. I wasn’t thinking,” Kai says softly, putting his hands in his pockets and looking at the ground.
I look back at Mommy, and she shakes her head before grabbing my hand and pulling me with her. When I look over my shoulder at Kai, he smiles, making me smile back.
4 out of 5 stars
Obligation is the second book in the Underground Kings series which is loosely tied into the Until series. It can be read as a standalone but you will miss the connections between the characters and lose the backstory. The first time Kai meets Myla, she's all of five or six years old, and he offers to comfort her while she's crying. This really shows off the dynamic between the two characters from the get-go. Kai considers himself Myla's protector even at a young age. By the time they're adults and she really needs protection, he's there to whisk her away. Now I should mention, Kai has been watching over her since taking over his family's business. Myla has not seen him since they were children until he comes to save her from her foster brother. This story was a little different from others by this author mostly due to the interaction between Myla and Kai. Because they're already married within the first few pages of the book, it's more is this going to be a permanent relationship or just until she's safe. The secrets that they keep from each other and Kai's family business are an almost constant stumbling block for them. With those problems only resolving themselves in the last 30% of the book, it did leave me feeling that the relationship part was kind of pushed to the side. However that doesn't mean I didn't absolutely LOVE Kai, he's probably one of my favorite characters from this author. There is something very sexy about a tall, brooding, long-haired man with tattoos and it all ads up to scream Alpha male. There were a lot of sweet scenes between Kai and Myla, and a LOT of very hot, sexy times, too. While I enjoyed the sex scenes, after all smexy man!... The tender, sweet scenes were really perfect in this story. You can't go wrong with which ever book you pick up by Aurora Rose Reynolds. They're all super hot alpha males, mostly strong willed, smart mouthed, heroines, and a good dose of family ties added in to round things off. Obligation was a good, solid entry in the Underground Kings story and I can't wait to read Sven's story next.

a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof
They say when you assume that you make an ass out of you and me. Kenton Mayson learned this lesson firsthand when he made assumptions about Autumn Freeman and the kind of woman she is based on what little information he had. What he finds out is she’s not only beautiful, but also smart, funny, a fighter, and exactly the kind of woman he wants to share his life with. Autumn made assumptions of her own about Kenton, and now he needs to prove her wrong in order to protect her and their future.
