Blog Tour, Giveaway & Eliza's Review: Obligation by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Barnes & Noble:

[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.

I really enjoyed AAR’s latest offering and I have to say, I loved the unexpectedness of what I had originally expected. Does that make sense?

Well, let's see.

I didn't expect to jump straight into the story but I must say I'm glad it did. Besides the prologue the story kicks off the morning after the wedding. As a reader I felt as though I was experiencing the emotions along with Myla. Although she wasn't a weak character, I became quite protective of her, sentiments also felt by Kai. He was a wonderful hero, I admired how unashamed he was a his desire for Myla and how he wasn't afraid to express it.

I didn't expect the plot to take a backseat to how much I loved this couple. Is this a bad thing? No. The story was well written and had substance, it just so happens that ARR created a couple that were so darn well suited, I would have been happy for a lot more screen time with them but that's just me being greedy.

I also didn't expect it to be so easy between them. Of course there was angst and drama but it was the romance and sweetness that was a real highlight for me. Kai was the right amount of possessive, his intentions to keep his promise most foremost and Myla, although more of an introverted character blossomed as time went on.

This may have started out as a marriage borne out of Obligation but it definitely resulted in one of the most sweetest unions ever.

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.
