What’s the worst that could happen?
Mona is a smart girl and figured everything out a long time ago. She had to. She didn’t have a choice. When your parents are uber-celebrities and you graduate from high school at fifteen, finish college at eighteen, and start your PhD program at nineteen, you don’t have time for distractions outside of your foci. Even fun is scheduled. Which is why Abram, her brother’s best friend, is such an irritant.
Abram is a talented guy, a supremely gifted musician, and has absolutely nothing figured out, nor does he seem to care. He does what he feels, when he feels, and—in Mona’s opinion—he makes her feel entirely too much.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration.

In Review: My Thoughts
Penny Reid’s books are like catnip for me. They’re smart, funny and sexy and, more often than not, I find myself cheesy-grinning my way through the entire thing. Motion was all of these things and, yes, I did grin my way through the entire book. It’s been ages since I read a true novella series like this, one that follows the same couple throughout — and has cliffhangers — but if anyone can make me do it, it’s Penny.
Mona was the perfect combination of smart, awkward and charming. She was totally relatable. I want to be her friend. Now it’s been ages since I read the Elements of Chemistry series, so I only vaguely remembered Abram going in. It didn’t matter though, because it didn’t take me all that long to fall for him in Motion. He’s just so … unf. He’s got a good heart and he and Mona have some wicked chemistry together. I can’t wait to see how everything unfolds.
The blurb for Motion is fairly vague, so I’m going to keep my review the same. I’m not going to get into the plot here. Truth be told, I didn’t even read the blurb until I started writing my review. I like going into books blind. I suggest you do the same here. It’s Penny Reid. She won’t do you wrong. Trust her. I will say I didn’t want to sit this book down once I started. It was addicting.
Motion was a super quick and easy read that left me wanting more. That cliffy, y’all… I mean, I was warned going in but OMG. I need more and I need it now. (But, I think I can wait a few weeks. Maybe. I know it’ll be worth the wait.)
Funny how the very weaknesses that cripple us in some situations are often the foundation for our greatest achievements.
“Books are friends. You don’t just-just-just give away friends.”
“If you don’t want me, tell me. But you have to know, you must know, I only want to make you happy.”
All hypotheses are worth exploring! Even the crazy ones.
