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.

So I have to say that I truly love Aurora Rose Reynolds. She knows how to capture the essence of a strong and sexy Alpha Male. This was another GREAT addition to the Underground Kings Series. What I really like about this series is that each book has a HOT, sexy Alpha Hero, a strong storyline and they can be read as standalones.
This story grabbed me right from the beginning and held on all the way to the last page. This was such a great love story between Kai and Myla. These were two characters who met at a really young age, but had no idea how that chance meeting would change their lives in the long run. These two were reunited later in life and put together due to some extenuating circumstances. ARR created a story that will have you laughing, smiling, blushing, yelling at your kindle, but will also keep you on the edge of your seat, wanting to know what is going to happen.
In this book we meet Kai and Myla. We briefly met Kai at the end of Assumption (Book 1) and I knew then that his story was going to be an interesting one, I am so glad I wasn’t wrong. Kai and Myla were such wonderful characters. Kai was a strong, sexy, HOT Alpha male who melted my panties, but wasn’t to over the top. I loved how he wanted to protect Myla since he was 10 years old. Myla was such an extraordinary heroine. She was strong but also fragile, if that makes sense. Myla’s life was turned upside down when she was 6 years old and her parents sent her to live with another family because they knew their lives were in danger. Things were going really well until she turned 16 and then her world came crashing down on her again. She finally had a chance to leave and build a life of her own only to be in danger later…which is why she reunites with Kai. I don’t want to tell the whole story, just get this book and read it. It was wonderful journey for Kai and Myla. I loved watching these two learn to trust and love each other.
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone!!!!
Assumption (Underground Kings #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.
