What’s the worst that could happen?
Mona is a smart girl and had everything figured out a long time ago. She had to. She didn’t have a choice. When your parents are uber-celebrities and you graduate from high school at thirteen, finish college at seventeen, and start your PhD program at eighteen, you don’t have time for distractions outside of your foci. Even fun is scheduled.
Which is why Abram, her brother’s best friend, is such an irritant.
Abram is a talented guy, a supremely gifted musician, and has absolutely nothing figured out, nor does he seem to care. He does what he feels, when he feels, and—in Mona’s opinion—he makes her feel entirely too much.
Laws of Physics is the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series; Laws of Physics parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.

I’ll admit…I’m not scientifically minded; my brain doesn’t compute in numbers and formulas. I’m a words’ girl, which is why Penny Reid’s stories make this nerdy word girl all kinds of happy; Reid easily incorporates her knowledge of the ‘science of things’ into her books, conveying the data and intricate details in a way that clearly illustrates their meaning through the characters’ internal musings and outward actions, which means that by the time readers finish one her smart romances, we’ve not only read an entertaining romance but, in some ways, we’ve been educated in any number of topics without feeling like our heads will explode with the information.
Penny Reid’s newest release, Motion, book one in her Laws of Physics series creatively weaves Newton’s Laws of Motion into a story line that forces two seemingly opposite characters together, shaking up the heroine’s carefully structured existence by placing her in an awkward, uncomfortable, and confusing situation with a gorgeous but messy hero who seems offended by her very presence due to a past encounter that the heroine has no recollection of since she’s pretending to be her twin sister – who she looks exactly like but is different in everything else when it comes to their lives and their personalities.
Like all of Reid’s heroines, I adored Mona – she’s quirky, brilliant, and moral, She’s guided by facts and reason, leaves nothing to chance, and doesn’t like the unknown, but therein lies the problem…there’s nothing logical or honest about what she’s agreed to do for her twin and the fact that she’s attracted to her ward – Abram, her brother’s best friend – only further complicates an already dicey situation. She’s not used to feeling the way she does around Abram and the fact that she’s essentially living a lie has disaster written all over it.
I don’t know quite what to think about Abram yet, but I’m eager to get more details about him in order to understand his attitude towards ‘Lisa’ at the beginning of Motion and the small changes in his demeanor as he gets to know this version of her – Mona’s version. It’s clear that he’s attracted to Mona, but it’s not something that she can rely on because she’s pretending to be her sister, and for someone who bases her decisions on factual data, Mona cannot reach any conclusions about Abram or the way he feels about her.
I can’t end my review of Motion before discussing one of the secondary characters who I seem to have a love/hate relationship with…Gabby. At the beginning of the book, I hated her and the way she treated Mona – who she used to be close to – but the further into the story I read, I started to see beneath her snark and vanity, and while I can’t say I want Mona to heed all of Gabby’s advice, what I can say is that Gabby does seem to be looking out for Mona more than she was, but I guess I’ll have to wait for the next book to confirm or deny my hypothesis!!
