***BLOG TOUR, REVIEW and GIVEAWAY*** Obligation (An Underground Kings Novel) by Aurora Rose Reynolds


Barnes & Noble:

[ob-li-gey-shuh n]
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.


How far would you go to protect those you love?  Myla’s entire life has been about people trying to protect her. At six years old she was given away by two parents who loved her so much they would rather give her up then risk anything happening to her.

Years later- Even though Myla is thankful for the life she had been given she decides to leave and never look back. Some of the memories are just too hard to handle causing her to cut all ties with those who have always treated her as their own.

Now Myla is successful and owns her own bakery.  Things seem to be going good until her past returns and is set out for revenge.  He wants what Myla has and there is only one way to get it.

Enter Kai-

Kai- I cannot explain how much I loved Kia.  He is strong and protective and despite being feared by everyone who encounters him- he has a soft spot for Myla. 

He saved her.
He vows to protect her.
Therefore, he marries her.

Kai will stop and nothing to ensure Myla’s safety- but when danger gets too close, Kai realiazes he may not be the best for her and makes a choice.  One that leaves both of them far more broken then they could ever have envisioned.  A marriage that started out as an obligation quickly became something more.  Something real. 

How far will Kai go to keep Myla safe and allow her to live a life free of fear?

There a lot going on in this story.  So many factors that it got a little confusing at times and I wasn’t sure what the main “drama” storyline was supposed to be about. But I loved the characters- even the supporting characters were amazing.  I loved Kai’s alpha-ness yet ability to be so soft and gentle when it came to Myla. 

Aurora is amazing and one of my favorite authors.  This is the second book in the Underground Kings series but can absolutely be read as a standalone.  There is just one tiny part where they talk about the characters from Assumption.  The next book- Distraction- can’t come soon enough.

Excerpt  #1
 “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.

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.
