Their love was innocent.
Their friendship was pure.
Their fear was real.
Their danger was true.
When little Marlena is left to care for an abandoned wolf pup, her parents see their irrevocable bond, and this humble family embarks on an adventure trying to care for the needs of a rapidly growing wolf, and the needs of their headstrong daughter. The comical complications of such a venture only darken when Marlena, now a high school student, witnesses her wolf shift… into a young man.
Secrets and the pure hatred from a man out for revenge take Marlena, her family and her wolf on a heartbreaking journey of devastating loss, captivity, and ultimate sacrifices.
This love story will haunt you well after you finally set this book down.
This book begins with a young Marlena who meets two wolves and begins a bond with them and their baby wolf that she names Romy. Circumstances occur where the baby wolf ends up having to live with Marlena. Their friendship is so magical, and they are there for each other through anything that gets in the way of either one being hurt.
On Romy’s eleventh birthday he takes on a new human form where he can flip flop back and fourth between wolf to human. Marlena and Romy’s friendship becomes more as the story progresses, and you know the love they had for each other was there all along.
I really liked this story and felt that the bond between Romy and Marlena was real. It wasn’t insta love, and they were just connected and so comfortable with each other. I loved the moments when Romy aka Sebastian was learning to become human. He would say the most hilarious stuff that was totally inappropriate, but so cute because he didn’t understand.
I also really loved Marlena’s friend Jimmy, and I loved when he stood up for her when her ex Trevor was being a jerk. Trevor I wanted to slap at times, but then he got back to being the real friend he always should have been. The family bond between Marlena and her family was really touching, and I loved her Mom and Dad and how they loved Romy just as much as Marlena did.
Things take a turn for the worst towards the end, and it becomes action packed and kept me wanting to read on. I am still sad about a couple of things that happened, but there was also beauty in things that occur too. This was a great story that is different than things that are out there today.
How does this book sound to you?
