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.
Amali Rose’s debut novel Under the Cherry Blossoms captures you from the start. When you seek out to online dating, you never know what you are going to get. But with Skye and Ben we are in for a treat.
Skye didn’t have much faith in the opposite sex. With feeling not good enough and not trusting a man, she didn’t have much faith in online dating. She had a connection with Ben. With slowly building a relationship with Ben, could she learn to trust again. Ben had nothing to lose. He too has been burned by women. With the interaction with Skye, he knew he had to move slowly so she wouldn’t be spooked. Can Skye and Ben learn to trust one another? After all we are all human and have flaws.
The chemistry, banter and jokes are infectious. Beautifully written with HEA will have you overjoyed. I can’t wait for more from Amali Rose.
