Schooled (Mastered #2.5) by Lorelei James

When Amery Hardwick first met martial arts master Ronin Black, she wasn't ready for the level of his sensual artistry or his need for extreme control. Nor was she prepared for the primal urges it released in her. Amery and Ronin were made for each other.

When they married they were certain their future would be a fulfilling journey of love and passion. But happily ever after is never so simple. Six months later, while in Japan, Ronin is training with his sensei, while Amery is consumed by her own burgeoning career and a culture shock with which she is struggling to adapt.

Now, from the heady pleasures of Tokyo bondage houses to the unyielding family traditions pulsing with every beat of Ronin's heart, Amery and Ronin find the limits of their relationship tested once again, and shocked to discover what they're willing to do in order to save it.

MrsNorthman's Review

This short story was just what I needed, more Ronin Black!
Nothing big or dramatic happens, so don't go into this book expecting something mind-blowing.  Instead, take it for what it is.  More, Ronin and Amery.  It's been six months since they tied the knot and they haven't been able to take a honeymoon. Ronin has to go to Japan for six weeks to train with his sensei and Amery decides to tag along.  His training schedule is brutal and the trip doesn't go exactly as Amery imagined, but they end up so much closer.
I enjoyed this quick read.  My only wish was that we were given a glimpse of their wedding.  Even a quick look back or a sweet memory.  I wanted something. I'm hoping that we get to see more of them in Shiori's book.

MrsLeif's Review

Just what I needed, a little more Roning and Amery!

Months after they got married, they are finally taking time off for their honeymoon. 
They fly to Japan with a double purpose, alone time for the lovers and for Ronin to do his annual intense training sessions with his sensei. Their time together improves their communication as a couple and I love that Amery is able to surprise Master Black in a big way.

The story is short and I found myself wanting more.  I sure hope I see more of them in the next few books. 
I can't personally wait for Deacon and Molly's story.
