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 parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.
I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
❝Yes?❞ I shivered. The way he said my name, it was the auditory equivalent to being stroked.
❝Will you be brave with me?❞
That ending totally caught me by surprise, I thought there would be more reading, more story, more Abram and Mona … MORE. I was at 98%, and then, BAM! it ended. I was reading and then turned the page to “ABOUT THE AUTHOR”. With MOTION, the ending didn’t surprise me, I had sensed it was coming, but with SPACE, I was totally caught off guard.
Space spans two 1/2 years in the life of Abram and Mona, focusing more on the present than the past.
Still an unrepentant slacker.
What’s the worst that could happen?
Well, everything and nothing.
Needing a break from the loudness of life, Mona and her friend Allyn, travel to Mona’s parent’s private cabin, hoping for silence, snow and resting. However, when Mona arrives, she sees her brother Leo has invited friends, many, many friends, to stay the same weekend she is. But it is the presence of Abram, that causes her emotions to swirl in a raging storm.
❝Abram an air of power and strength that I found both flustering—because, holy hot specimen of the male species, Batman—and alarming.❞
The two haven’t seen each other since they laid together on that couch in Chicago, and now, in front of him, is the girl who caused his world to crash around him. The one who lied to and deceived him. The one who stole his heart and ruined him for anyone else. Abram was filled with so much rage and heartache at the sight of Mona. All the emotions and thoughts he’d so carefully tried to suppress for two 1/2 years came barging to the surface. And while he wanted answers, he was also afraid of them, and while he wanted to hurt her the way she’d hurt him, he also wanted to touch her, to kiss her and to hold her.
She really was. She was stunning. I hated that she was still so beautiful to me.❞
Abram confronts Mona about what happened all those years ago, and even though he got answers, he’s not sure he believes them. It isn’t until she finally bares her soul to him that he realizes who she truly is and he wants more. More of what he had in Chicago. More time with Mona. He wants the future.
❝I need someone to listen to my heart.❞ His face inched closer. ❝And it only wants to beat for you.❞
In all relationships, trust is a two-way street. She’s been self-reliant for so many years, putting her trust in anyone, especially someone who could irrevocably hurt her is terrifying. Relying on the only relationship she’s known as guidance — her parent’s — she questions the reality of the two of them having anything other than these few days together.
While I anticipated this book ruining me, fortunately, Reid took pity on my heart and she only crushed half of it. You can definitely feel the tension building through this book ready for the explosive finale, TIME.
❝I don’t want anyone to give me something I don’t deserve. I want to feel like I’ve earned what I have, then I know it’s mine.❞
