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.
I feel the sun on my closed eyelids and something sharp poking me in the face. Moving my hand, trying to get away from the pain, I whimper when it scrapes against my cheek. I lift my head and run my fingers along the side of my face, feeling wetness. Opening my eyes to see a light smear of blood on my fingers. I flip my hand over, and then I see the gaudy ring that is now taking up residence on my ring finger.
“Great,” I whisper, closing my eyes and laying my head down again.
I prayed earlier, before I went to sleep, that when I woke up, the ring I’m wearing now and the man who put it there would be nothing but a bad dream. No such luck. I roll over and take a shaky breath, wanting to close my eyes for a few more seconds, wishing I could just sleep until everything was back to normal.
I want to start by saying that I really enjoy Aurora Rose Reynolds work. I adored the Until Series, and so far, the Underground Kings series is not disappointing me.
I really liked Myla. One thing I can't stand in a female lead is a simpering needy mess. Myla has gone through some rough stuff, but she just keeps on kicking. Kai....can you say scary? Dude was pretty terrifying, I thought so, at least. But he also shows Myla a side of him that others rarely get to see. It's understandable given the type of business he's in. There is a certain persona that he has to show, and he does it very well. I also loved Pika and Aye, they work for Kai. I'm hoping these two get their own story at some point.
I did feel like parts of the story were a little bit rushed at times. I don't feel like it was a big deal, and it didn't take away from the storyline. There are some intense scenes in the book, I will say that. Kai has to show what he's made of, so things get a bit violent at times. I'm glad there are some scenes that weren't detailed. All in all, I enjoyed Obligation. I can't wait for Sven's story, YES!!
