I could probably write a whole ass essay on this book, but since I would have to spoil the fuck out of it to do that, I'm going to have to do my best to relay what I can in this vague enough review. 

The Wolf and the Wildflower starts out as a one night stand turned days long affair between Aster and Scythe, but it quickly evolves into a complicated, layered story of fate, betrayal, pride, heartbreak, and love filled with twists, turns, and tragedy. If you don't shed a few tears reading this book, you need to check your pulse to see if you're still alive! The intense emotions these characters felt poured off the pages straight into my heart, and I felt every single one of them. 

Ella gave me all the emotional torment that made me fall in love with her writing when I read her first NA romance and swirled it together with fantasy and magic. She topped it off with a hefty dose of hot sex and sweet nothings and created utter perfection! This is definitely one of my favorite fantasies she's written thus far. 

From the beginning, there are clearly secrets being withheld, but every time you think you've learned them all, you find out you're wrong. Each new bit of information changes so much about the characters and the story, and some of it is absolutely gut-wrenching. Everything is expertly revealed with perfect timing for maximum impact, and it delivers exactly what it's supposed to.

I love Aster and Scythe, but one of the most interesting characters that brought some of the strongest emotions out of me was Rorn. That's probably an unpopular statement, but it's the truth. He is such a tragic character to me, and as fucked up as some of the stuff he did was, my heart broke for him, too. 

That being said, I don't excuse him for his unforgivable actions. I do wish things could have ended differently where he was concerned though, and I don't feel even a little bit bad about that. In fact, I bet if we got this story from his point of view, it would have destroyed us all. 

I credit Ella's amazing writing for all of my complicated feelings. She could have written Rorn as a one dimensional asshole that didn't know what he had and betrayed the one he loved most for no good reason, but instead, she gave him so much complexity that I'll never forget this story. 

Fantasy romance fans, this one's for you!
