image1

Synopsis:
     Susan is the new girl—she’s sharp and driven, and strives to meet her parents’ expectations of excellence. Malcolm is the bad boy—he started raising hell at age fifteen, after his mom died of cancer, and has had a reputation ever since.
Susan’s parents are on the verge of divorce. Malcolm’s dad is a known adulterer.
Susan hasn’t told anyone, but she wants to be an artist. Malcolm doesn’t know what he wants—until he meets her.
Love is messy and families are messier, but in spite of their burdens, Susan and Malcolm fall for each other. The ways they drift apart and come back together are testaments to family, culture, and being true to who you are.

My Review:

“This is your heart. It’s not made of glass. Your heart is made of muscle, tough and resilient. It’s strong enough to weather most things, including emotional storms. Naturally, in the nature of muscle, the heart also has its weaknesses. It retains memories, good and bad. But muscle can be retrained, reshaped, can be made to learn new habits.”

This book hit too close to home for me. I recently lost someone to cancer and it’s still so fresh that this hit me hard. But this story was more than a loss, it was acceptance and the romantic comedy that breathes a breath of fresh air into the genre.

Susan and Malcolm were two characters that you instantly fall in love with. Their demeanors, their backgrounds, and their meet-cute were really something to brag about. The writing style was so superb that this was one you never wanted to end.

The Beauty of the Moment was a great story of acceptance, love, and a greater story beyond. The struggle the characters face was heartbreaking and all too current. You just wanted to hug them close and never let them go. You’ll want to pick this book up. You won’t be disappointed.
