In my review for MOTION, I asked Penny Reid to hurt me and man did she deliver it in spades.
Mona thought she left all the mess with Abram behind her, sure she was hurting everyday but she knew she’ll never meet him and that was the only respite. Until she came face to face with him at her family’s cabin. Now, she is stuck with Abram and his wrath for a week and she might not come out of it unscathed.
I’ll start by saying that I cried for a solid 40% of this book and this is one of the best books I’ve read this year.
Mona, my sweet baby!!! I thought I loved her in Motion but after this book I think I’m insanely madly obsessively in love with her. I have never loved anyone like I love Mona. She is so strong, so passionate but my baby also needs so much love. I want all the happiness in the world for her and I cannot wait for her to finally get the love she so truly deserves.
ABRAM HARRIS NEEDS TO BE PROTECTED FROM THIS CRUEL WORLD AT ALL COSTS!!!! The only reason for me being blindly in love and adoration of this man is that Penny is a sorceress and she packed some kind of spell in her story which made me mad about two characters that are the epitome of everything I could possibly love. This man deserves so much appreciation and love and respect and by God I will see that he gets it.
Mona and Abram are not perfect. These two are flawed and real and pure and amazing and they hurt so much but they also no how to love boundlessly. I couldn’t have asked for a better story for these two and I am just now remembering there is another book to come.
This is just the start of Mona and Abram, my dudes, we aren’t even prepared for what’s next.
I’m still the girl standing in front of Penny and telling her that I love it when she hurts my soul.
“Hi—hello,” she said, stepping forward but not out of the way, drawing my attention.
She was still staring at me, her face still pale, but her eyes had turned searching instead of stunned.
“I—” She stopped herself, swallowing, her gaze dropping to the front of my coat, a cute little frown furrowing her eyebrows. In the next moment, she was pulling off the glove of her right hand. Abruptly, she shoved the ungloved fingers toward me, returning her eyes to mine. “I’m Mona.”
I suppressed my disbelief at her small action before it could break my outward mask of calm. I wasn’t calm. Just to be clear, I was the opposite of calm.
The fact that she was introducing herself to me now meant that she thought I was too stupid to figure out her lies over the last two-and-a-half-fucking years. She was arguably one of the smartest people in the world, after all. To her, people like me must seem like housebroken pets. So it shouldn’t have surprised me. But it did. The tension and tightness around my ribs reappeared, squeezing uncomfortably.
Dropping my attention to her bare hand, I pressed my lips into a tighter line, dismissing the way my pulse jumped at the sight of her wrist, the olive tone of her skin under the yellow string lights overhead. Glaring at her outstretched offering, I considered telling her to go to hell.
I considered it, but I wouldn’t.
I didn’t trust myself to speak, that was reason number one.
The other reason was harder to explain, or use as a justification, or admit to myself. Staring at her hand, I braced against a sudden flare of hunger. She might consider me a lower life-form, but that didn’t change the fact that I wanted to touch her. I wanted to touch her more than I wanted to tell her to go to hell, and that was fucking pitiful.
But there it was.
Acting on the compulsion, I lifted my right hand and tugged off the ski glove, sliding my warm palm against her much colder one. Her hand felt good in my hand, the right weight, the right size, the right texture, and I inhaled freezing air.
Mona also seemed to suck in a slow but expansive breath as our hands touched, held. This brought my eyes back to hers in time to see her lashes flutter. Pink colored her previously pale cheeks. The sound of the wailing wind, the sting of the air and frost momentarily melted away, leaving just her, her soft skin warming against mine, her beautiful face filling my vision.
She really was. She was stunning. I hated that she was still so beautiful to me.
