Now that we've pretty much closed the book on the them I'm really looking forward to the next two books in the series.

SCHOOLED is another book I had on my Netgalley account but when I found out it was going to be produced in audiobook format I waited so I could listen to Luke and Rachel bring Ronin and Amery back to life. Their narration is so good!
Amery and Ronin have been married for 6 months now and they are heading to Japan for 2 months. Amery is excited and uneasy at the same time. She only speaks a few words in Japanese and doesn't know all the rules of the culture yet. ...more
Oh how I missed these two! *sighs* After Ronin's bad injuries and his break from fighting and training, they are getting married and are spending their honeymoon in Japan. But this trip is more than just a honeymoon, it's Ronin's yearly training with his sensei to learn new techniques...or so it was planned.
But this time, the training is different, his sensei is different and this gets to Ronin and makes him withdrawn from Amery.
Amery is caught in a l ...more
Amery knows how devastated Ronin was unable to train or fight. It is such an important piece of the man that he is in his heart. She quietly and steadfastly supported him through his struggle – but now it’s his turn.
She’s now in a country where she ...more
We pick things up after the end of Unwound with Amery and Ronin on an extended trip to Japan. Amery is meeting the Black family patriarch for the first time and Ronin is getting in some required training with his sensei. For the amount of erotic scenes in the novels, this novella is decidedly a bit more chaste, but the focus is on the progression of Amery and Ronin's relationship and the love that has evolv ...more
Favorite Quote: How could a man be so arrogant yet so humble?
Schooled is a short peek back into the lives of Ronin and Amery Black. Despite their differences (cultural and sexual) they learned to adapt and have gotten married. When Ronin heads to Japan for his yearly martial arts training with his sensei, he decides to take Amery along as he can not bear to be parted from her for so long. This vacation/honeymoon combo is exactly what A ...more

Schooled catches us up with the now newly married Ronin and Amery as they take an extended vacation/training trip to Japan. It’s a chance for them to get away, for Ronin to immerse himself into his rigid training for three weeks and for Amery to meet Ronin’s family, specifically his hard to please Grandfather.
I’m not normally a huge fan of short stories, but I found the length of Schooled to be just about perfect for Ronin and Amery, they’r ...more
A student should always study his craft to perfection. For Ronin - this involves traveling back to Japan to study with his Sensei. Now that he is a newlywed, leaving Amery behind is not an option. To further his martial arts instruction, Ronin needs to study for a least a month with a rigorous schedule. So - he decides to take Amery with him to Japan. Both plan on enjoying an extended honeymoon in his home country while making sure his training doesn’t keep them apart.
So many things a ...more
I loved catching up with Ronin and Amery in SCHOOLED. As Lorelei James' writing grows and spreads into different genres, so does her couples. Ronin and Amery had obstacles to overcome in this issue, but that was part of the intrigue. I loved that Amery stood her ground, even when at times it was difficult. Ms. James addressed several of the characters' hot buttons and came up with compromises that were reasonable and believable. In addition, Amery and Ronin learned to communi ...more
In this novella, we follow Ronin and Amery as they travel to Japan for Ronin's annual training with his sensei. Loved the setting, and the new characters we meet. My favourite part of this series though, is how Lorelei James portrays the rope work that is at the core of the relationship. She is able to make it seem so sensual that you can feel the rope on your skin...
Master Black and Amery are six months into their marriage but they still have a few issues to work through. Ronin is a master at rope bondage, he loves the beauty of it especially when his ropes are on Amery. In this novella about the couple, they both learn a life lesson. Great read.
