Obligation by Aurora Rose Reynolds

My 4 Star Review

From the outside looking in Myla’s life resembles a story book. She is the daughter of two happily married parents, has two loving brothers, and is a successful business owner, but looks can be deceiving. What many don’t know is her biological parents are deceased and she is living with her aunt and uncle. They don’t see that her relationship with her brothers isn’t what it seems, for various reasons. They don’t realize what a big deal it is for her to have a successful business since she left home the first chance she got.

Despite all of her hardwork and success everything changes in the blink of an eye for Myla. One minutes she is a single woman running a business, the next she is married living in Hawaii. Kai has been watching Myla and protecting her from afar since he inherited his family's business. As threats began to escalate he had no choice but to step in and take things to the next level. Kai decides the best way to protect Myla is for the two of them to get married.

It is obvious in the beginning that while there is an attraction between these two, there isn’t much more. Little do they know that over time what started out as an obligation will end up being their greatest choice.

"I’m just as surprised by what happened as you are. But I don’t regret it. I don’t regret anything that has happened between us.”

Kai and Myla’s story definitely exceeded my expectations. First, Myla is such a strong willed person, but was able to put her trust in Kai. I love that despite her strength and fighter type personality she went with her gut. Kai, now let’s be honest he is very easy to love. Don’t get me wrong he isn’t perfect and makes mistakes, but my love for his OTT alpha tendencies allowed me to forgive him pretty easily.

We all know I am a sucker for romance, but I also love when there is an element of mystery and suspense. Obligation is definitely that type of book. We have the obvious story between Kai and Myla, which I thoroughly enjoyed, but we also have the suspense of the outside forces trying to hurt them. I enjoyed that aspect of the story and while the plot may have been a little unbelievable that is what I read fiction. I like escaping into another world. My only real complaint with this story is how fast it moved, despite this being a shorter novel it felt long at times. Of course I would have loved to have seen more of Kai and Myla together, but I am just being greedy.

In the end, I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it if you are a fan of over the top alphas, romantic suspense, and sexy as sin reads.

[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.

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.

Excerpt 2
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.

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.
