Last month I read and reviewed Motion, the first book in the Laws of Physics trilogy. This week the second book, Motion, was released. A big thank you to the author and Social Butterfly PR for providing me with an ARC to read and review! Keep on reading to find out what I thought of the second book in this trilogy and for an excerpt!
Space, the second book in the all-new Laws of Physics Trilogy from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid, is available now!
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.

After the ending of Motion, I was really curious about how Abram and Mona’s story would continue. The first thing I was so happy about was the fact that we got Abram’s POV in Space. I missed this in this first book and I loved how his thoughts added to this story!
I didn’t really expect the story to continue over two years later. Part of me wishes that it would’ve continued where it left off, but them not seeing each other for that long and not expecting to see each other definitely made this story really interesting. In all honesty, I could see myself in that house in Aspen. Curling up with a book while reading a book, where can I sign up?!?
I loved that everything wasn’t back to normal really fast and that there were definitely some feelings causing some issues. Abram was hurt and had every right to be. He started falling for someone to find out she wasn’t who she said she was. I think it was amazing that it inspired him to write music. The lyrics we get to read in this story are really good! I really felt the tension and emotions between Abram and Mona.
Mona was still Mona, even though it’s clear she still had feelings she didn’t want. She may be very smart, but emotions aren’t easy for her. I love how humble she is though. Even though she’s rich and grew up that way, she doesn’t like people cooking or cleaning up after her. I don’t think many people can say that! It’s clear Mona starts changing though and slowly letting feelings in, how hard that may be.
Besides Mona and Abram, there is a great group of characters with them. I loved how they all interacted and made Mona and Abram figuring their feelings out even more interesting. I need more Leo though, haha.
What makes this trilogy special is that the romance is definitely slow burn, but the emotions and thoughts seem to play more of a role in this story. It’s not like many books that have characters dive into bed together and then figure everything out. That’s not a bad thing, but this story is very special. I love how things slowly develop and that we get to see how it plays out.
The only reason I didn’t give Space five stars is that I kind of wish we had more moments with Abram and Mona together. A lot was them doing things and thinking about how they felt. That’s fine and really interesting, but I wanted more moments of them together. I am excited to see how their story will continue in the next book!
If you’re looking for a fun read with characters who are exploring feelings, a group of friends snowed in and see a love story develop right in front of you, Space is the book for you!
“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.
She really was. She was stunning. I hated that she was still so beautiful to me.
