One week.

Private cabin.

Famous physicist.

Still an unrepentant slacker.

What’s the worst that could happen?

Mona’s meticulously planned allotment of relaxation is thrown into chaos by the unscheduled appearance of her older brother’s band of friends, including the one person she’d hoped to never face again. Abram still makes her feel entirely too much, which is one of the reasons she disappeared after their one week together. But now, trapped on a mountain of snow and things unspoken, Mona will have to find a way to coexist with Abram, chaos and all.

Laws of Physics is the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series; Laws of Physics parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.

MY REVIEW

3 STARS

Penny Reid has this ability to create these weird but wonderful heroines that you somehow can’t help but feel relatable. Mona is no exception here. I loved that she was super smart, socially awkward and her thouht processes just seemed off the grid.

Abram and I, were two circles in a Venn diagram that would never overlap. We were two asteroids on opposite sides of the solar system, ensnared by Jupiter’s gravity, destined to orbit the asteroid belt in the same direction, but never together.

This is just a small taste of Mona’s mind. She was just bloody brilliant, hilarious and didn’t conform to the standards of others. I absolutely loved that about her! While I found her analogies tantalizing, I did wish there was more real dialogue than inner dialogue in this book.

This book picks up a few years after the first and Abram and Mona get thrown together by what seems like good ole random fate. Abram it appears is still quite sexy with scruff, manbun and all. A famous musician who appears is now at the peak of his career. And woah is he angry! He is defintely throwing out some hate vibes to Mona and rightly so after what happened in book 1. His obvious attraction to her irks the heck out of him and to say his feelings are conflicted is an understatement.

The writing in this book is so beautiful. It takes place in one location and in just a few days just like the first book. This put the focus on dissecting the chracaters emotions and watching them unravel and try to come to grip with their feelings for each other. I absoluely loved how Penny did this!

Kaitlyn from Elements of Chemistry makes a prominent appearance in this book and honestly I think that’s why I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I should have. Kaitlyn is one of my favorite heroines EVER! She is also wonderfully quirky in a completely different way and I could not help but compare her relationship with Martin and Mona’s relationship with Abram and the two just cannot compare in my opinion. I LOVE slowburns but I did wish I felt more chemistry between Mona and Abram. For some reaon I felt their sparks so much more in Motion.

I also felt a bit of an anti-climax at the end. Motion ened on a such a huge cliffhanger that I was a bit disappointed with this one. The ending of this book was just kind of there. Nothing to really have me dying to read the last book. I definitely will be reading book 3 though because I need Abram and Mona to find their HEA.

I recommend this series if you are a lover of quirky humor, brilliant and awkward heroines and slow burn romances.

My review of Motion (Laws of Physics #1)

 

SPACE_T02.jpg

Excerpt:

“Hi—hello,” she said, stepping forward but not out of the way, drawing my attention.

She was still staring at me, her face still pale, but her eyes had turned searching instead of stunned.

“I—” She stopped herself, swallowing, her gaze dropping to the front of my coat, a cute little frown furrowing her eyebrows. In the next moment, she was pulling off the glove of her right hand. Abruptly, she shoved the ungloved fingers toward me, returning her eyes to mine. “I’m Mona.”

I suppressed my disbelief at her small action before it could break my outward mask of calm. I wasn’t calm. Just to be clear, I was the opposite of calm.

The fact that she was introducing herself to me now meant that she thought I was too stupid to figure out her lies over the last two-and-a-half-fucking years. She was arguably one of the smartest people in the world, after all. To her, people like me must seem like housebroken pets. So it shouldn’t have surprised me. But it did. The tension and tightness around my ribs reappeared, squeezing uncomfortably.

Dropping my attention to her bare hand, I pressed my lips into a tighter line, dismissing the way my pulse jumped at the sight of her wrist, the olive tone of her skin under the yellow string lights overhead. Glaring at her outstretched offering, I considered telling her to go to hell.

I considered it, but I wouldn’t.

I didn’t trust myself to speak, that was reason number one.

The other reason was harder to explain, or use as a justification, or admit to myself. Staring at her hand, I braced against a sudden flare of hunger. She might consider me a lower life-form, but that didn’t change the fact that I wanted to touch her. I wanted to touch her more than I wanted to tell her to go to hell, and that was fucking pitiful.

But there it was.

Acting on the compulsion, I lifted my right hand and tugged off the ski glove, sliding my warm palm against her much colder one. Her hand felt good in my hand, the right weight, the right size, the right texture, and I inhaled freezing air.

Mona also seemed to suck in a slow but expansive breath as our hands touched, held. This brought my eyes back to hers in time to see her lashes flutter. Pink colored her previously pale cheeks. The sound of the wailing wind, the sting of the air and frost momentarily melted away, leaving just her, her soft skin warming against mine, her beautiful face filling my vision.

So beautiful.

She really was. She was stunning. I hated that she was still so beautiful to me.
