Blog tour: Laws of Physics – Time by Penny Reid

LOP_TIMEBook: Laws of Physics: Time

Series: Hypothesis trilogies series #2, book #3

Author: Penny Reid

Release date: 16 April 2019

Main characters: Abram Harris, successful musician about to embark on his first world tour; Mona da Vinci, brillant scientist, navigating her feelings for Abram.

Plot: Mona and Abram have been apart for 6 days and the reality of being apart for the coming year is beginning to dawn on them. Due to the newness of their relationship, both Mona and Abram are surrounded by naysayers and friends who are sceptical of their feelings for each other.

Despite the separation, Mona and Abram are determined to make time for each other – desperate to coordinate their demanding schedules, the pair are able to steal time here and there, in various cities, but will it be enough to sustain them when they’re alone?

Why you should read it: Because… Penny Reid. That’s why. I won’t bore you with my fangirling for the PR – if you’ve read my other reviews, you’ll know I’m gaga for her stories. I have enjoyed this series – I love Mona and her fierce intelligence, and her foibles. Abram is a dreamer and a complete romantic. The poor guy is struggling in this story – once he goes all in, he goes all in. The way he pined for Mona made me smile and empathise, as I’ve been there, but I did feel for his friends too – he was pretty joyless without Mona! All in all, it was a sweet conclusion to a charming series – it was low on drama and really a study in the slow burn. I was really ready for them to stop moving so slowly and get to the sexy times already!

What you may not like: Not much to dislike, really. It’s very romantic. Abram is so focused on being with Mona that he’s unable to focus or care about much else. Mona is a bit more sensible and manages to hold it together, but she has her own issues she needs to deal with. I suppose if you enjoy high drama with baddies throwing spanners in the works, this may be a bit tame for you, but I enjoyed it for the gentle read it was.

Rating: 3.5/5 – charming series, well written. I enjoyed the philosophical musings and the couple. Would recommend reading the series in one sitting!

Blog tour: Laws of Physics – Space by Penny Reid

Book: Space

Series: Hypothesis trilogies series #2, part 2

Author: Penny Reid

Release date: 11 March 2019

Main characters: Mona daVinci, a brilliant and influential scientist, Abram Harris is now a successful musician performing under a pseudonym. Suddenly, they’re about to crash back into each other’s lives.

Plot: Mona is in need of some down time. A little rest and relaxation with her friend Allyn at her family’s place in Aspen is just the ticket. She’ll read, hang out with her friend and generally not take up too much space. Fate, or in this case her brother, however have different ideas.

Leo brings his entourage with him – among them, none other than Abram Harris. Mona is poleaxed. She hasn’t seen him for two years, nor has she had the chance to explain her role in what happened two years earlier. Despite his frosty reception, she’s determined to make things right. She never got over him, but more than anything, she just wants him to be happy.

Abram is not happy to see Mona again. He hasn’t been keeping track of her these past two years – not at all. He’s still angry and he plans to keep that anger… will they end up killing each other out in the wilds of Aspen? Or is there still a spark there worth exploring?

Why you should read it: This is an engaging story – one that is shaping up to be a great series. I love Mona and the fact that her logic deserts her once she’s in Abram’s orbit. The pair have a lot to work out and there’s still a lot left unsaid. Abram is pretty salty in this book – not surprising but he’s kind of verging on bitter. I did enjoy his crabby exchanges with Mona – she’s in  many ways the grown up. I also enjoyed the familial exchanges and developments between Mona and Lisa. Not saying anymore than that. The chemistry is kept at a steady simmer for the whole book. It’s very much a study in delayed gratification – the complete opposite of the first Hypothesis series. Penny’s making us work for that HEA!

What you may not like: Is Abram a little more bitter than necessary? Is he a bit self-indulgent? I don’t know – on the one hand it’s understandable, on the other, he does seem to guard his self-righteous anger like a shield. I can’t wait for that shield to crumble. In some ways, this was your typical book 2 of a trilogy – we get more character development, a deeper look into their psyche and also another cliffhanger. I’m cool with all of that, but it’s made me really impatient for the book’s conclusion!

Rating: 4/5 for an entertaining read – sexy yet not yet fulfilling. Plus a very welcome back to some much-loved characters from the previous series.
