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.

“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.

[I received a digital arc for an honest review]
Space by Penny Reid is the second book in the Laws of Physics series by Penny Reid. To keep this spoiler free you will need to read Motion (Book 1) to understand where this story starts.
After the prologue, we are two and half years later and Mona is continuing her extremely successful career as an astrophysicist. She is about to spend a semester in Geneva and is vacationing at her family’s Aspen home. Abram is now the lead singer of his band and is about to go on tour. The band decides to spent time in the Aspen’s before the leave and that brings our two main characters back together. In the time that they spent apart both have analyzed the week they spent together and it all comes to a head with strong feelings and stronger words. They are forced to face each other and admit some difficult truths. The feelings they grew for one another during the one week haven’t gone away and now they are both willing to see what can happen when there’re no lies standing in their way.
The characters have developed and grown more in this book. Mona’s much more herself since she no longer has to pretend to be her sister. She wears her cargo pants and black clothing and wants to spend a week in Aspen trapped in the house reading novels with her friend from college. When forced to deal with Abram, Mona becomes an emotionally diverse character that you don’t expect. The Abram I feel for in book one was missing for most of this story. He was a bit of a jerk and his offhand attitude toward Mona was aggravating. He was taking out all his hurt on her without truly considering why she is the way she is. Thankfully by the end he opened up to Mona, and we saw his sweet side come back.
Overall, I felt that Space flowed much better than Motion. It was great seeing the characters grow emotionally, and I am looking forward to seeing it all wrap up the final Law of Physics book, Time.
