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.
