This was an utterly interesting and engaging tale There are so many ways to classify this story It's an immigrant experience story It's a love story It's a story of heartbreak It's a coming of age story Whichever the case I thought Bhathena did them all uite well and I really enjoyed meeting Susan and MalcolmBoth Malcolm and Susan were well written and multidimensional characters who I grew to care for On the surface they seem so different from each other but both were dealing with some issues which were keeping them from moving forwardSusan had been the perfect daughter back in Saudi Arabia She got top marks and would never dream of running around with boys or lying to her parents Then she found herself in a new country with an absent father and a mother who was growing and distant She was struggling to adjust to this new learning and teaching style hiding her collegiate dreams from her parents and engaging in a secret relationship with Malcolm Her parents' arguing and impending divorce was the straw that broke the camel's back and forced Susan to evaluate her dreams and needs It was a really meaningful journey with took with her as she learned to assert herself learned to appreciate the grey areas and also come to terms with the fact that nothing was guaranteedAnd then there was Malcolm He was still dealing poorly with his mother's death as well as his father's past abuse and infidelities Though he was no longer as self destructive as he had been in the past he still bore the reputation he earned By being with Susan he started seeing things through a much mature lens He started believing the praise and recognition he was receiving and started working harder to achieve at the level people thought he could achieve I really loved watching Malcolm grow chapter by chapter I don't know maybe it's because he was an underdog or maybe it's because I am all about second chances but his story really warmed my heartFor me this book was really about growing up and the way maturing changes us and the way we navigate relationships It was about making mistakes and owning up to them but obviously I also adored all the way love was integrated into the story Bhathena showed the upside and downside of love She showed how it can be really messy but still really beautiful I definitely appreciated the way Malcolm and Susan's romance played out because I thought it was very realisticAnd wow What a fabulous ending I absolutely loved what Bhathena did there I knew she wouldn't make it easy for me but she left me super happy in the endOverall A fantastic look at love growing up and taking chances to achieve one's dreamsARC provided in exchange for an honest review BLOG | INSTAGRAM |TWITTER | BLOGLOVIN | FRIEND ME ON GOODREADS

Nd has had a reputation ever sinceSusan’s parents are on the verge of divorce Malcolm’s dad is a known adultererSusan hasn’t told anyone but she wants to be an artist Malcolm doesn’t know what he wants until he mee. there's nothing objectively bad with this book but it really didn't fulfill the 'cute romcom' contemp for mei feel like i've read this story a million times and aside from the amazingly descriptive portions dedicated to food it was pretty bland and predictable also i would have preferred the conflict to revolve around the characters and their family issues rather than the btchy ex who is after the mc just because the guy likes her 🙄15 stars

Last Days First DaysSusan 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 Last Days eBook #198 at age fifteen after his mom died of cancer a. 45 starsThis book managed to tick every single box on a romance list that I had no idea I even had It was sweet and endearing yet spicy and a bit forbidden and wonderfully balanced with real life In short this is one of my favorite romances everI just–the new girlbad boy trope has so much potential to flop given all the bad tries from the late 2000s early 2010s From aggressive to almost abusive love interests to just plain bad to trashy and cliche there’s a lot of ways to go wrong Yet Bhathena did such an amazing job of getting it all right It feels like it suits 2019 with its diverse characters YESSS and a romance that’s sweet and gentle yet balanced with life and forbidden ness and so much The romance was definitely my favorite part and since it’s February I was in the best mood to read this book and swoon over Susan and Malcom Ugh AdorableThe dual POVs were so awesome and I loved reading both Sarah and Malcom’s side of the story and found them to be so well balanced And even than that they’re their own people The whole ending solidifies that though I promise you a happily ever after and they have agency and weren’t just made to be the other person’s other half Susan has things going on with her mom dad’s marriage as well as art and potentially going to art school instead of engineering Malcom has a lot to handle and unpack with his dad and his relationship with his sister and friends It was all very well balanced and that’s another highlight of this book How well Bhathena juggled romance and real life problems for all the charactersI took of the5 star ultimately because I wanted So much I wanted to devour 5 books of just Malcom and Susan And also because I feel like there could have been a little exploration of Malcom and his father but also we don’t want a 400 page contemporary so it’s still cool But yeah I want so many contemporary romances from Tanaz Bhathena and I also really really loved the Easter Eggs she left in the story about characters from A Girl Like That You don’t have to read A Girl Like That to read this thoughBasically I had a really fantastic time reading and just got all the fluffy happy feel good feels from this book I was in the perfect mood for this and devoured the whole thing in less than a day I would definitely recommend The Beauty of the Moment if you like fresh takes on classic tropes adorable couples who have agency diverse casts and West Asian rep a lighthearted read that will make you swoon artists also gorgeous coversOverall I had the most fantastic time reading and this feels like one of the rare books that I’ll be rereading in a time of need So yeah Please read it so you can gush with me about it after Thank you so much to Macmillan and The FFBC for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest reviewBlog | Instagram | Twitter
