The Sweetest Fix Reading Blog


Before I begin:

Don’t know much about this book (if it wasn’t for SBU and #baileyblizzard). But once I heard baker and broadway (both I β™₯️)… + it’s on KU, therefore paid for already πŸ˜‚

Monday: Chapter 1 – 5

Reese finds herself in a pickle 🀨 πŸ€” Lorna graciously encouraged Reese to stay in NY to pursue her dream (and expand the story). The attraction between Leo and Reese 😍 makes me excited for more of them πŸ₯° Reese has 2 major lies: 1. Approaching Leo and 2. Omission with Lorna 🀬 Not big fan where lying is concerned πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ but part of plotS 🧐 so I tolerate it.

  • Tessa’s writing is fun πŸ‘πŸ½ Can’t say I love Reese yet… but I love Leo! I get why Leo didn’t enter the story until Chapter 3 πŸ€” Leo sees a red flag 🚩: Reese is a dancer. Excited for more dirty talk πŸ˜‚
  • Because of the way I read the thread (a lot of copy & pastung) I’m unable to react to specific posts FYI but I’ll summarize what resonatesπŸ‘‡πŸΌ Pikachu πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ€£ Winnie the Pooh 🀣🀣 Dancing is cutthroat 🀬 (loved Center Stage 😁). I can see the parallels of being a business owner 🧐 
  • Didn’t want us to forget that πŸ›‘
  • I have this on my wall!
  • Good timing ⏱
  • Apartment hunting in general… 🀬

Tuesday: Chapter 6 – 9

Done! βœ… πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Finally caught up with today’s chapters!

Reading is going slow 🐒 πŸ˜‚ β™₯️ that Leo seeks out Reece 😏 and I think it’s cute Leo refuses to take β€œno” for an answer πŸ™…πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ We learn more why Leo questions πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ dancers πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ If I were him, I would too πŸ€” The way Leo convinced Reese to go out with him πŸ‘πŸ½ 😘 &πŸ“±Well done Leo 😏 Reese agreed to a lunch date πŸ‘πŸ½ 😊 Awww…. Leo is like a teddy bear 🧸 β™₯️ Leo is so excited for his lunch date! Tad’s curiosity is a testament to Leo as a boss πŸ€” 

Social awkwardness, get why Leo is πŸ€” Reese is a foil for Leo in that way 😍

  •  Still reading today’s chapters, but can and will respond to more posts from yesterday 😁

Fictionalized NY apartment renting πŸ€”

  • Acting out of character/boldly 😱 Scary if you ask me. But, in a fictionalized story, it’s entertaining πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ so I can’t complain. The chapter lengths are good πŸ‘πŸ½ I can see how it can be likened to Gettaway Girl. Because Leo seeks Reese out, less peeved about the lie of omission. But like Reese’s awareness of it. Like the mix of sweetness (in abundance πŸ˜πŸ˜‡) and spice (🀞🏼 anticipated). 

Wednesday: Chapters 10 – 14

 Awww… Leo’s so excited πŸ˜† to have Reese in his apartment 😍 Surprised (but glad Reece agreed πŸ‘πŸ½ ). Leo’s suspicions, not helped by Reece’s behavior πŸ€” I like how Leo posed for selfies instead of 🀬 I feel it shows him rising ABOVE πŸ‘πŸ½ Took me awhile to read these chapters, so starting on tomorrows πŸ˜‹

  • Haven’t heard of/from Lorna πŸ€” People watching πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ Fun to give them stories πŸ“– πŸ’‘ Reece stays in NY and helps Leo! 1 day to get to NY 😱 Influencers are influential! Dinner 🍽 Tate and being all over each other 😏 
  • Nap date 😍 Childhood insecurities and scars are valid. Very sweet indeed 😊 caretaking doft heroes πŸ‘πŸ½ Courtship as sweet as Leo’s desserts 🧁 Timeline is bonkers/insta-lovey but funNY πŸ˜„ The screen rotations keep making me lose my spot πŸ€¬πŸ˜‚πŸ˜±πŸ™ˆ

Thursday: Chapters 15 – 18

Touching Reese sgows Leo her dancing πŸ‘πŸ½ The walk home 🏑 then kiss 😘 ⚾️ This story is so sweet, I love it β™₯️ Reese is still lying to Leo 😱 know that’ll come back to haunt us. But enjoy seeing how enamoured Leo is by Reece πŸ”₯ Hint at the end of 15 that the truth will come out 😱 Valentine’s hangout and Bernard reveals Reese’s lies 😱

  • Still reading πŸ“– but vestibule-alcove sex πŸ”₯ Foreshadow at the end of 15 that the truth 😱 will come out πŸ€” β™₯️ to β™₯️s with Pikachu Lies are undesirable 🧐 Not to act like a moral compass 🧭 but a good rule of thumb. The guilt Reece is feeling is a direct result of lying. 

Friday: Chapters 19 – Epilogue

Leo showed some serious strength going after Reese 😍 then sending cake 🧁 pops 😍 Glad Reese got the Chicago chorus line role! Got some good 😊 quotes about pursuing your dreams πŸ’­ Can’t wait for Reece and Leo to meet again 😍 How will it happen? πŸ€” The Cookie Jar expansion πŸ‘πŸ½ Happy for Leo 😍 Makes me want to watch Center Stage 😍 Having Leo come to her show πŸ‘πŸ½ πŸ’‘ Kiss 😘 ⚾️ 

End of book πŸ“–

Epilogue 18 years later. Reece 8 year dance career πŸ’ƒ Daughter (Lily) πŸ‘§ Mentors in Manhattan β™₯️

Appreciated the epilogue and this story wasn’t about an age gap πŸ‘πŸ½ Don’t know author works well enough to know if it’s typical πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ SBU is particularly helpful there! Reece is dramatic πŸ©°πŸ˜‚ Liked the epilogue πŸ‘πŸ½ Remembering Save The Last Dance β€œLive Your Dreams” βœŠπŸ½πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‡ πŸ’Œ Definitely worth rereading!
