This was an incredibly well-written book. I think I may have noticed two typos in the entire book, very well-edited and easy to read.
The story itself was phenomenal. It definitely gets you in the feels, especially in the last half of the book. I thought the author did a fantastic job of setting up the characters and building their relationship to what it needed to be for the big stuff that happens in the latter part of the story. It starts out with Marlena as a young child, and ends with her as at the end of her Junior year in high school, and the progression was a good way to really show how deep the connection ran between Marley and Romy/Sebastian. I enjoyed the supporting characters, and was happy to see how one of them redeemed himself later on in the book.
If you want to know how gripping this story is, then it might be telling to say that when I went to bed last night at about 30% in (Chapter 8), and when I finished the book it was 4:10 a.m. I think I cried for at least a good ten minutes afterwards, too, not going to lie.
A few of my favorite quotes that I highlighted that won't require any spoilers include:
Chapter 7 - I learned that love is a simple, wondrous feeling to feed your body and soul. If what someone is giving you feels bad, it is not love.
Chapter 10 - On one side of the battlefield was my heart, worrying for my best friend. The opposing side was full of hormones, demanding to be released to conquer the beautiful young man holding me.
Chapter 13 - If you wish for me to stop breathing, then ask me to go and live my life searching for other wolves. But if you wish for me to be happy, unbelievably content, then ask me to stay and live my life with you.
Chapter 16 - I looked into many different shades of eyes as I took the walk that changed my perception on life.
What Could Use Some Work:
There really isn't much I can say on this section other than things that solely rely on my own personal preference, which was that I felt that the early chapters of the book were a little too happy and easy going. I like to see a little more conflict early on in the book, but there were a few things here and there, and I definitely think that the middle and end sections of this book completely made up for any of that.
Overall, if you enjoy YA, fantasy, werewolf, and/or paranormal romance books, then I definitely recommend My Wolf and Me.
Me after finishing this book: *looks at dog*
*looks back at book*
*looks at dog*
Me: "I mean, dogs technically are decedents of wolves..."
My dog: *huffs at me and walks away*
Me: "Wait, I'm getting mixed signals! Come back!"
In this book we follow Marley from when she was a young child, to her in high school. When Marley was a child she met Mother Wolf, Father Wolf, and their baby, Romy. Marley and her family are left to care for Romy when his parents are killed. Together they embark on a lot of adventures, but when Romy shifts into a human, things get a lot more complicated.
I absolutely loved and adored the beginning of this book, especially when Marley and Romy were children. They were just so cute! I loved reading about how they would play together, and sleep together, and take baths together, they were just extremely cute. It was also cool because I could see myself in Marley, and it would have been awesome to have a pet wolf growing up.
"After another blow out the snout, I advised the male wolf, 'You should see a doctor.'"
Okay, there was a part in this book where Sebastian (human Romy) was with Marley, and I was extremely scared for her. I did not like the way that he was tossing her around. It scared me. After that scene it took awhile for me to trust Sebastian again. It also took me a while to realize that Romy was still intertwined with Sebastian. I was thinking that the two were completely separate, when they are really the same thing. Once I made that distinction, I was more okay with Romy. But still, he was over reacting in my opinion. I didn't want him to hurt Marley who is really sweet, and wants to help whenever she can. That being said, I do think that Sebastien is a good partner for Marley, I think that they will balance each other out.
I really enjoyed reading about how Sebastian learned to be human. He was like a giant toddler, and Marley defiantly had her work cut out for her. From the good, to the bad, to the funny, and to the oddly insightful.
"After another beer in the middle of another game of Jenga, Sebastian all of a sudden took a stumbling step away from the kitchen table and said words I will never forget. 'I must poop now.' He headed for the back door."
The ending seemed a little rushed to me, but I still really enjoyed it! It was really interesting to learn more about Sebastien's family, and it was cool to see everyone work together! It was really action packed at the end, and I'm defiantly happy with the ending.
So overall, I loved this book! I loved Marley and Romy's relationship, and reading about them growing up together. While I did have some minor problems with the book, I absolutely LOVED everything else. Like I say in every review I make for Adam's books, I highly recommend.

Marlena is a young girl who encounters wolves and befriends them. Several weeks later they appear with a young cub, Romy. Things happen and Marlena takes him home with her. We see a beautiful friendship and love develop between them, and so many funny incidents along the way. Until one day Romy changes. Into a young man.
And then we could have had a simple paranormal love story. But no. There was a massive spanner thrown in to the works and their lives were turned upside down. It became a fight for survival...and for them to claim their places...
It starts with an innocent child too imaginative for her own good who makes friends with a wolf couple. They have a pup a few weeks or months later, and he becomes her best friend. At such a young age, Marley doesn’t think it’s odd that she plays with Wolves, that they’re friendly, or that they love her and protect her so much. And that kickstarts their entire journey of companionship as the young pup’s parents die and he’s left alone, only to be taken in by Marley once her parents realize he means no harm and there’s no getting rid of him.
The romance is innocent, a simple love that you can’t live without but don’t fully understand enough to embrace fully. And even when they do understand it, even when they experience desires they’ve never felt before and wish to explore them, their love never loses that innocent feeling, where it’s so pure and true that no matter what happens, nothing can taint it or tear them apart.
“It was at that very moment, when reality showed itself, that Romy became the most important entity in my life. Something deep in my heart made me realize that he most likely would always be.”
Their love is tested over and over again, especially when somethin horrible happens and they’re forced to do things they never would have before, and it breaks your heart to see them go through such pain. And even as they love, their friendship stays strong. They are connected, bonded because of all they’ve gone through together and all they have yet too. The story starts sweet and hopeful and innocent, and turns into something deadly and dark. Their love shines through the darkness though, and it’s brilliantly written.
“I don’t know how long we sat side by side, leaning on each other, and it didn’t matter. I would’ve stayed next to him forever.”
Loyalty plays a huge part near the end. Sacrifices are made, tears are shed, and death is everywhere. But to get out, to be free, they must stick together. The others are loyal, they eat only if their leaders do, and they will fight to death to see them out alive. It was heartening to read about, even while it broke you.
My only complaint about this book it that Romy/Sebastion was a bit odd when he turned human, acting like a little kid. He learned everything else very quickly, but still couldn’t talk more his age until long after, until horror struck them. That didn’t seem to fit with the story, it stood out.
Overall though, My Wolf and Me is a heartfelt tale of love and loss, sacrifice and growth. It evokes strong emotions and is not a book you will soon forget.
Marlene is a little girl with a great imagination and she is playing in her make believe castle when she befriends 2 wolves who become the castles guardians also Marlena's when she is playing in the woods. The female wolf has a puppy and Marlena soon so becomes friends with the puppy. Then tragedy strikes and the pups dad is killed and mom is mortally wounded and right before Marlena the wolf transforms into a human and begs Marley to take care of her son....
Marlena has a new friend, Romy the wolf, who becomes very protective of Marley. Marley's parents are not thrilled about the wolf pup but can see how attached Marley and Rome are to each other
The two are inseparable at home and they grow up together. Marlena knows that Romy has a secret and doesn't know when the secret will surface.
This book takes you through a lot of funny and not so funny times. There are so many questions that need to be answered and I hope that book two will answer them. I am positive that this book will remain one of my favourite books of all time.
Take the chance on this book because you won't regret it! I've fallen in love and so will you.
