Motion (Laws of Physics #1) by Penny Reid


4 Stars

Mona DaVinci couldn’t be any more opposite from her twin sister, Lisa. Studious and regimented, her life is nothing if not predictable. But, when she gets a call from her sister asking for her help, Mona drops everything to return home and temporarily assume her identity, before Lisa gets in any deeper trouble than she already is…

Abram Harris has been tasked with watching over Lisa, the impulsive and always in trouble DaVinci sibling. Having only met her the one time, and under somewhat extreme circumstances, Abram has no idea what to expect from his new babysitting gig.


Motion was a delightful introduction to the convoluted mess in which I feel Mona has welcomed into her life. Rife with sexual tension and one huge secret, the engaging saga of Mona and Abram is far from over…

Mona grew up with a family that is incredibly fractured. From her young years of being always separated from her siblings, to her current situation of having no real relationship with them to speak of, she is used to relying only on herself. So when her sister asks for her help, as much as Mona wants to avoid doing her sister this very large favor, there is something inside of her who wants nothing more than to help her twin.

Abram is a musician as well as a complete enigma. With the limited knowledge Mona has of him going into the arrangement, she learns very quickly how easy he is to get along with, and just how hard it is for her to keep from checking him out in all of his devastatingly handsome glory. Too bad Abram has no idea that Mona isn’t who she says she is…

Mona was a delightfully sure of herself woman who has always been comfortable living her life immersed in the world of academics. As a straightforward and rational thinker, she greatly dislikes lying and pretending to be someone she is not. Abram was an adorable and fairly mysterious man who seems to have quite the attraction for Mona… err… Lisa brewing beneath the surface.

This book left off with a major cliffy… an expected one, but one that achieved some major nail biting in it’s aftermath, all the same. I couldn’t get enough of the dynamic and burgeoning attraction between Mona and Abram, and I am so excited to pick up with the story left off with the release of Space.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
