Blog Tour: Under the Cherry Blossoms by Amali Rose
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.

This was an amazing debut by Ms. Rose. I instantly loved Skye and Ben, and of course Cassidy is down right hilarious from start to finish.
Skye doesn’t believe in happily ever after’s at least not for herself. After her father left, Skye put up a guard when it comes to men. I mean the man who was supposed to love her forever walked out, so she locked her walls up tightly in order to not get hurt again. That is until she meets Ben. What started out as a casual thing quickly turns into so much more.
I adored Ben right from the beginning. There was just something about him that drew me in. Skye was also an amazing character, but Ben was just perfection. Skye and Ben are both struggling with their past. Can these two learn to let go and let their walls fall completely down?
This book is so cute, and I devoured it in one sitting. I honestly couldn’t get enough. This book has the perfect about of laughs, chemistry, and love. I honestly wouldn’t mind reading more on these two later. Can’t wait for Ms. Rose’s next book!
