From NewYork Times Bestselling Author Penny Reid
A (brokenhearted) physicist.
Now an infamous (who is LITERALLY EVERYWHERE!! UGH!) musician.
The worst has already happened.
Mona has learned that she has nothing figured out and plans are meaningless. After leaving her in Aspen, Abram is now breaking sales-records, rising to rock star fame almost overnight. Mona can’t seem to escape him. He is literally everywhere, or at least images of him are.
Just when she thinks things can’t get any more confusing, Abram returns . . . What happens next? Only TIME will tell.
[I received a digital arc for an honest review]
Time by Penny Reid is the third and final book in the Laws of Physics. You again will have wanted to read Motion (Book 1) and Space (Book 2) to understand where Mona and Abram’s story began and the events this book starts after. Mona and Abram have reconnected and now they are maneuvering their lives together as she heads to Geneva to work and Abram’s band goes on tour. They feel the pressure of long distance and how to deal with their feelings for each other.
I am not going to spolier this for you guys because honestly this story ends in a very sweet way.
Again to prevent spoiler-ing major plot points I will just say that Mona continues to find herself through her relationship with Abram as well as her family. She does some serious self reflection as her relationship with Abram deepens and has to deal with her past.
“I told him the truth. ‘I want to be brave with you.”
Abram redeems himself pretty substantially from who he became in the second book. He learns how to adapt to long distance while still treasuring Mona’s unique personality and sweet yet odd tendencies.
“Then I guess I’m stupid for you.”
A short beat, and then she replied quietly “That’s a relief”
“Yes. Because I didn’t want to be the only one of us who was stupid”
This conclusion to their story felt more like my previous Penny Reid reads. It was interesting and smart. The conversations and emotions felt real and fluid. Their moments together were steamy and sweet.
This final book in the Law of Physics series was the usual smart steamy story I love and expect from Penny Reid.
