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.
Obligation is book #2 in the Underground Kings series, I was gifted a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review so here goes…
Before I start I want to say I enjoyed this book Kai and Myla are fiery and intense and I really enjoyed their relationship.
I feel like I’ve missed out on a very important prequel or something!!!
In preparation for reading this book I read the first book in the series Assumption so I know that this very important info was not in there!!
So where is the background to Myla and Kai getting together?? The book starts with them being married and in his house in Hawaii but it takes a few pages before we even get a basic understanding of really what the hell happens.
Even after we found out the basics I needed a good flashback scene so we could understand what happened between Myla, Thad and Pika!!!
Ok rant over!!!
If we disregard the missing plot and just focus on Kai and Myla’s relationship it really is incredibly sweet!!!
Kai is a big bad mafia boss (I think??) yet he turns into a hopeless romantic when he’s around Myla. His sweet personality and romantic words does have me swooning a little lol.
This is sort of insta love but if faced with trying not to fall for Kai I would probably fail too lol
Kai’s goal is ultimately to get out of the Mafia but I don’t really see how that’s achievable or how his actions in this book get him any closer to his aim.
There is some serious chemistry between Kai and Myla and the sex was hot!!!
Overall I enjoyed this story, but I just felt like I was missing info, something important that really would have benefited my reading experience.
Obligation gets 3.5 stars
“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.
