Kitty’s Review – Under The Cherry Blossoms by Amali Rose

What a sweet and romantic story Under the Cherry Blossoms was. Amali Rose mixed the right amount of sweet with fun and anxiety with joy. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures 
Skye Emery believes in true love.
A romantic idealist, she believes wholeheartedly that everyone will get their happy ending. Everyone except her, that is.
After drowning in the devastation left behind by a cheating father, keeping men at arm’s length and finding solace in a dirty book and a pint of ice cream is a safer option. However, in the aftermath of a night that ends with a cheap wine buzz and the afterglow of a solo orgasm, Skye decides to dip her toes into the world of online dating.
Enter Ben Mackinnon, the sexy reformed manwhore with a complicated past of his own and a killer online presence Skye just can’t ignore.
Ben overwhelms her with his perfect mix of sweet sincerity and dirty talking dominance. He pursues Skye with a determination she didn’t know she craved and when they stumble upon a childhood memory that connects them, Skye’s walls begin to tumble down.
Skye wants to believe that all men aren’t carbon copies her father, but when Ben’s past resurfaces she’s torn between running to protect her heart, or fighting for the only relationship she has ever invested in.

What a sweet and romantic story Under the Cherry Blossoms was. Amalie Rose mixed the right amount of sweet with fun and anxiety with joy. And to think this all started with an online dating app.

Skye really believed in love but wasn’t sure she could trust a man to love her like she knows she deserves to be loved. The men in her life didn’t do anything to assure her that she was good enough to be loved. She knew that she needed to take a chance but wasn’t sure if her heart could take another hit without totally shattering. Taking the advice of her best friend, she goes on line and creates a profile on an on line dating site figuring she has nothing to lose.

Ben knew that it was time to start living a life that could bring him some kind of real happiness. Tired of the broken-heart syndrome dating scene, he tries his hand at on line dating. He’s not sure if this is for him but he, too, has nothing to lose. Now, if the woman he’s texting will just agree to a face-to-face meeting, he may be able to find his happily-ever-after.

I loved how Amali Rose made Ben such a “guy”, made him himself right from the beginning. There was no hiding the true Ben with his dirty mouth and awful knock, knock jokes. He was human, not a fictional character. He had flaws and a past that could have destroyed both him and his relationship with Skye but, he overcame them. As for Skye, she was written with just the right amount of sassy that a woman would need to put up with Ben. When she hurt, she hurt big … when she was happy, you felt it.

I was extremely happy to have read Under the Cherry Blossoms and look forward to more of this series. I have no idea who she could possibly pair Cassidy with, but he is going to have to be one strong character to deal with her. As for Mason, he needs someone just as bad as Ben did. What I loved most was that there was a clear beginning and end with the cutest epilogue ever. If Amali Rose decided not to continue with this series, I would be disappointed but I’d know that these two wonderful people got their HEA and I couldn’t be happier.



Amali Rose is a self-confessed bookworm whose love affair with the written word began as a child, with The Magic Faraway Tree. As she grew older, her tastes evolved until one day she found her way into the wonderful indie community and discovered her passion for romance with a side of smut.

When not reading or writing, Amali enjoys baking, yoga, cheesy pop music, Netflix marathons and she believes strongly that pink, puppies and chocolate make the world a better place!
