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.

Laws of Physics is the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series; Laws of Physics parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.

Read my review of book 1 MOTION and book 2 SPACE.


The TIME has come to finish up Penny Reid’s Laws of Physics series. [See what I did there?? 😉 ]

This book was not what I was expecting. I was honestly expecting a bit more angst, especially because of how angsty the first two books are. But when compared to the first two books in this series, this book was relatively smooth sailing. It doesn’t mean there weren’t struggles Mona and Abram went through, I guess it was how the struggles affected how the story progressed surprised me. I did enjoy the series as a whole, and would recommend reading them back-to-back, especially now that they’ve all been released.

There are lots of things to love about this series, but I want to talk about one specific thing — which has more to do with Penny’s writing than maybe this specific book. While Mona and Abram are together and happy at the end of TIME, neither their world nor their relationship is perfect. Which for me as a reader, is a very realistic happily ever after ending. Just because two people finally come together in a healthy and fulfilling relationship, doesn’t mean the rest of their world is healthy and fulfilling. There are still problems with work or family members, with their own mental health or career, etc. I love that Penny doesn’t make everything perfect for our Hero and Heroine, even though they finally get their HEA they’ve worked so hard for.

Also, in case you don’t know, not everyone’s HEA looks the same. You could ask 100 people and get 100 different answers for what happily ever after means for them. That’s another thing I love about Penny’s books. She doesn’t have a formula for how her books end. (At least I haven’t found one yet and I’ve read all her books!) Not every couple is engaged, or married, or with child at the end of their journey. Penny does a great job of showing the range of what happiness means for someone, and how many different types of HEAs exist. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to HEAs, and I’m really glad Mona and Abram got the one that was just right for them. ❤
