In this conclusion to the Mastered series by New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James, a man’s need for control is tested by the one woman he’ll risk everything for…

When sensei Ronin Black first encounters Amery Hardwick, the fire in her eyes ignites a sexual spark a thousand times better than the primal rush he used to get from mixed martial arts matches. She accepts his darker edges and admits to him that her desires aren’t as wholesome as he believed. And before long Ronin is grappling with emotions he’s never felt before….

Yet despite demanding Amery bare her body and soul to him, Ronin holds a part of himself back. When she learns Ronin’s secret and walks out, his life begins to unravel. To regain her trust he must let go of his pride and prove to her that it’s more than passion binding them together.

Deep. Amery and Ronin’s relationship is defined in Unwound and brought to a conclusion. This powerful story moved me as Ronin and Amery explored their love. Amery holds back confessing her love for Ronin because she is scared that if he doesn’t open up to her she will have no place in his heart. Ronin knows if he doesn’t open up to Amery and share all of himself with her he knows he will lose her and he doesn’t think he will survive it if she leaves him again. Amery knows that Ronin’s past has turned him into the master he is today. His alternate lifestyle is part of who is he, not just what he likes to do. Amery and Ronin’s story is a very powerful journey that they embark on to explore their need to be together. An emotional love story! Unwound is the sequel to Lorelei James Bound and I recommend reading Bound, the first book in the series be for reading Unwound.
