Title: Obligation
Series: Underground Kings #2
Author: Aurora Rose Reynolds
Release Date: February 11th, 2015

[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.

“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.

Assumption (Underground Kinks #1)

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.

Aurora Rose Reynolds is a navy brat who's husband served in the United States Navy. She has lived all over the country but now resides in New York City with her Husband and pet fish. She's married to an alpha male that loves her as much as the men in her books love their women. He gives her over the top inspiration everyday. In her free time she reads, writes and enjoys going to the movies with her husband and cookie. She also enjoys taking mini weekend vacations to nowhere, or spends time at home with friends and family. Last but not least she appreciates everyday and admires it's beauty.

Aurora Rose Reynolds is one of my favorite authors. No matter what story she writes, she always finds the way to present it in such a way that it captures your attention from the first few words and keeps you on your toes until the very end. I always feel like I know the characters she writes about, they are just so real. Obligation is not an exception. Once I dived into the book, I resurfaced only when I read the very last word. And I was still craving more. I just wanted more Kay and Myla, and Uncle Frank (he was definitely a fun character :D ), and I definitely wanted to read some more about Sven and Maggie :) such a pity I will have to wait for awhile until I can read their story :)

Kai is quite an interesting character. He pretty much implements the term TALL, DARK and DANGEROUS :D But he is also so tender and romantic with Myla. I loved the contrast between his two sides. It was definitely intriguing to read how he changes because of the feelings he has for Myla. How his love for her makes him softer in his interactions with her but at same time it makes him even more fierce in trying to protect her, no matter the cost. I loved reading how he changed little by little in order to become Myla's perfect other half. I definitely enjoyed the feeling that they were meant to be together and in a way Kai felt it when he met her for the first time when he was only ten years old :)
Myla is also quite an intriguing character. One one side she is strong, independent and even stubborn from time to time. But she is also terrified from the demons in her past that make her feel vulnerable and weak. I loved seeing how Kai's love and devotion helped her overcome some of her fears and even healed the worst wounds from her teenage years. His determination to keep her safe and to avenge her lost innocence helped her feel protected and cherished. It also helped her to learn how to trust again, to depend on the person beside her and to be sure that he is never going to hurt her. In a way, Kay and Myla are perfect for each other. Together, they helped each other to overcome their demons and to grow up as personalities :) 

If I have to describe the book in a few words that would be intriguing, fascinating, fast paced, enchanting :) I enjoyed every single word of it and that's why I think it is definitely a must read. And if you haven't read any of Aurora Rose Reynolds'  books up till now, you should definitely correct your mistake :) I just can't wait to see what she is going to write next :)
