Review: Time (Laws of Physics #3) by Penny Reid

Now available on


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.


Time. Time was not enough. Not nearly enough time with these amazing characters. It is one of those stories where you get to the end and you just want more, more, more. I saw the time left counting down as I read and I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Mona and Abram. I didn't get nearly enough time with them even though we had three separate books. I still want more. I loved these two so freakin much and I never wanted their story to end. 

Now I am assuming if you are reading this you have read the first two books. Because these are not standalone stories and even though the first one has the most killer cliffhanger ever, all three books are out now so you don't even have to wait to find out what happens. So go, read the first two books, then read this one. They are all amazing! 

Mona and Abram as so freaking awesome together. You know they had that start that could never lead to anything because of the situation and things were not as they seemed, but then when they finally reconnected and actually figured everything out you knew they were it. From the first moments in that first book you see the connection between them. And this story? This final chapter of theirs? Oh, my heart. Yes, they have only known each other for 2 weeks over a few years, but you can see the love they have. Even if Mona is uncertain, or Abram worries the distance and time will be too much, they obviously deeply love each other. Care about each other so much. Want each other to be happy and healthy and have everything. I never wanted to leave them. 

Mona, in this chapter, finally has people pushing her to work through some things that happened to her. Things that she has always downplayed as nothing happened even though it affects her to this day. Even though it makes her question things and not react the way she wants in certain situations. She is so incredibly smart and kind and wonderful, but can be very stubborn when it comes to letting people help her and admitting things she sees as weakness. She doesn't want to talk about what happens, wants to try and push it aside and have it magically go away, but that doesn't work. And those parts of this story? Those moments when the people who care about her want her to talk to someone and figure things out in a way so that she can have a happy, healthy relationship with those she loves? They were amazing. Because I know exactly how that is. I know how you push those thoughts aside, try not to think about them, don't vocalize what happens because then maybe it didn't even though it is affecting your life. I was her for a very long time. It took me years and meeting someone kind and wonderful who helped push me to the path of getting help and figuring out how to deal with my trauma and to even admit that there was something that was affecting me. To admit that someone hurt me and that was affecting any relationship I tried to have. It is hard to sit down and evaluate, to deal with what happened. And, like Mona, it doesn't have to be some huge traumatic event. It can be something small, something not as bad as others have had, but it if affects you it affects you. It is not nothing no matter how much you try and convince yourself. And it can be very difficult to acknowledge that. So for Mona to be working through that, having people who care about her try and help however they can, it was wonderful to read. Because not everyone has that. My heart ached for her and I loved watching her work through all this and figure out how to be with Abram. They definitely don't have the easiest first year of being together simply because of distance. It is hard to be apart and in different time zones and only get a few moments here and there. They were amazing. Magical. I loved them both so much. 

Abram is such a wonderful person. He is so sweet and kind and caring and only wants Mona to be happy. He is so lonely without her. He misses her so so much when they are not together and longs for that time when they will be. When they are together things are so easy for the most part. So simple to sit and chat for hours. To just be together. And he wants to keep anything from harming her. I loved the discussions they had about how certain things could affect Mona's career and everything she has worked for. How Abram supports her 100% in everything she wants to do. How he tries his hardest to think about how his actions may affect her so that they hopefully won't affect her negatively. Because he hates seeing her hurt. The beginning of this story was a bit...Mona's sister was making me really angry and I couldn't quite put my finger on why exactly until Abram called it out and stood up for Mona. Before he told the sister what she was doing and how it was not cool. That was one of my favorite moments. Not that Mona needed him to stand up for her, needed him to fight for her, but he will. He will be there for her no matter what. 

These two were destined to be together and their ride was a bumpy one. I loved that this third book was about them getting to know each other and date long distance. Them working out how this will work with both of them super busy with their careers. Because even though it is difficult, it works out in the end. These two are everything. They wrap me up in all the feels when they are together and happy. I wanted more. I wanted so much more. I want to read about their everyday life once they are in the same place at the same time forever. I want to read them forever. I guess that just means I need to re-read this wonderful series because I am not ready to say goodbye to Mona and Abram.
