Schooled (Mastered Series) by Lorelei James

From the New York Times bestselling “master of erotic romance”* and author of Unraveled, Bound and Unwound comes the all-new novella in the Mastered series.
When Amery Hardwick first met martial arts master Ronin Black, she wasn’t ready for the primal urges his sensual rope artistry released in her. As it turned out Amery and Ronin were made for each other. But when they head to Japan for a delayed honeymoon and Ronin’s annual training with his sensei, Amery struggles to adapt to the foreign customs as well as running her burgeoning business from afar. But culture shock is the least of her worries when faced with the changes in Ronin—it feels as if she’s married a stranger. Caught between his sensei’s demands and pleasing his wife, Ronin is at war with himself over choosing advancement in his jujitsu training, or staying at home with the woman who owns his heart and soul. As the limits of their relationship are tested once again, Ronin and Amery discover that they both have a lot to learn about each other….and what it takes to build a love that’ll pass all life’s little tests.
Includes a preview of the new Mastered series novel, Unraveled.

I can't get enough of Ronin and Amery, they make such a great couple. Schooled is a continuation. Amery and Ronin are spending two and half months in Japan while Ronin trains, he does this once a year, but he decided to take Amery with him and make it their honeymoon. I wouldn't mind that, but Amery did have to spend some time alone. I love this series, and can't wait to see what happens next. Lorelei, you really know how to keep a person interested in your books, there is always a surprise or two. Please, if you haven't read any of Lorelei' s work, you really should go purchase Bound: The Mastered Series, you will love it.

We're back in the amazing world of Master Black, Ronin, and his wife, Amery, traveling to Japan for his six weeks of training with his Sensei.  They have a little break for a honeymoon and then Amery will meet Ronin's grandfather.  Their journey to Japan and the various places they visit there is as adventurous as only Master Black can make it.   WOW!  How I have longed to be back in the lives of Ronin and Amery.  This is a fantastic short story with that same explosive impact as a full length novel.  They both still have a little bit of their insecurities from previous books.  They are still eternally devoted to each other and the attraction is hotter than ever.  The story of Ronin's training with his Sensei brought tears to my eyes.  It's a definite turning point in this series.  Thank you Lorelei James for giving us this fabulous novella while we await the next full length novel.

irst off, this is not a stand alone novella. At 113 pages, it is the icing on the cake of the first two books: Bound and Unwound. Schooled picks up after Unwound and give us a glimpse of Ronin’s life in Japan and the extreme training involved in his martial arts work. The problem is the amount of time and dedication necessary to excel takes Ronin away from Amery. She is left alone in a strange country with nothing to occupy her. Obviously, that is a recipe for trouble. Since I had a first off, I must have a second point and it is an important one. READ this series! Bound introduced me to an entirely different aspect of BDSM literature. The description of shibari rope bondage is fascinating and the developing relationship between Ronin and Amery is engrossing. It does end on a cliff hanger which just means new readers are lucky enough to not have to wait for book two – Unwound. I highly recommend all three books to readers who have an interest in descriptions of alternative lifestyles. Prior to this series, I had only read the author’s contemporary westerns which are excellent. This change of direction did not disappoint me. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Ronin completely redeems himself in this book. If you are unsure based on book #1, do NOT doubt, Lorelei will come through.

This is DEFINITELY NOT UP TO PAR with the rest of the books! I kept nodding off trying to read it! I felt that this was just something put out to make money! :(

I absolutely LOVE and trust everything Lorelei puts out. Her writing styles from her western/cowboy to her fighter/mma is remarkably different. However, amazing at the same time. It takes a brilliant writer to be so diverse in her styles.

Ronin and Amery have me hooked on the Mastered Series. I was happy to see a third book about these two! I love this couple and look forward to more books in the series.

Amery and Ronin Black are flying to Japan so Ronin can train with his Sensei. They've only been married six months but alot has happened. Ronin continues to surprise Amery with his knowledge and passion towards her. Ronin's training appears to be particularly brutal which is wearing on Ronin's spirit. What will Amery learn about Ronin? What will Ronin learn about Amery? Your answers await you in Schooled. I really enjoyed this short story in The Mastered Series. Amery and Ronin continue to fascinate me on many levels. This book proves this to be true. Ms. James continues to raise the bar on her own writing. Definitely looking forward to Unraveled.

What do you get with super sexy Ronin Black and Amery on their honeymoon? .... what you get is ..... sexual magic. Ronin is back to Japan for more training so what better way to combine this trip with: his honeymoon, training and meet the grandpa all rolled up in one. For the first part of their trip, Ronin is master of all things in their relationship. Then Ronin is off to training and having a hard time balancing training and his wife which is causing Amery to get frustrated. But Amery is not one to let things lie easily, which is why they are a good match for each other and confronts Ronin. Which causes Ronin to go further in his training that he can now reach his own form of enlightment with his new balance into being master and husband. I love how this novella let us see into Ronin and Amery's HEA, while at the same time set us up for Shiori and Knox in Unraveled, which I can't wait to get my hands on.

Ii wasn't as impressed with this as I was the other books in there series or other series she's written.. I sadly spent $2.99 on a 99 page novella. I was expecting more... I've read a great deal of her novels... This by far was a waste of my money..
