You’re Not Good Enough Book Tag

It’s Sunday, which has kinda become my unofficial tag day! I was tagged in this one by Bella from Bella Blogs Because Books. This is one I’ve not come across before but it was super fun to do.

This tag works by writing down 30 character’s names on pieces of paper and putting them into a bowl and pick out two at a time at random. Then choose which character fits the question best.

You only have one more spot on your spelling bee team, who would you choose to complete your team?

Amani from Rebel of the Sands and Mustang from Red Rising Trilogy

Ah ok so from what I remember Amani is a doer and goes after what she wants but I’m struggling with what her intelligence was like? But I do know that Mustang’s education was excellent so I’m going to go with her.

Final Answer: Mustang

Both these characters want to kill you, which character would you kill first so you have a better chance of surviving?

Seth from The Return and Harry from Harry Potter 

Oh, gods, I have no doubt that Seth would definitely kill me on the first try, whereas Harry is more likely to need a couple of attempts. So yeah Seth.

Final answer: Seth

You are on the bachelor or bachelorette and these are the last two people, who are you giving your final rose to?

Cassian from A Court of Thrones and Roses Series and Mia from The Princess Diaries

Seriously no contest here. I like Mia but Cass would be getting that rose!

Final answer: Cassian

You have been chosen for the hunger games, which of these characters are most likely to volunteer to take your place?

Callypso from Rhapsodic and Jin Rebel of the Sands

I would have to go with Callypso, she is very selfless where as Jin is not so much.

Final answer: Callypso

You are stranded on an island, which character would you sacrifice to cannibalism?

Josie from The Return and Karou  from Daughter of Smoke and Bone

As Karou is a pro at working with body parts, I’d have to sacrifice Josie `

Final answer: Josie

You are the next DC or Marvel superhero, which of these characters would you want as your sidekick?

Ren from Wicked and Darrow from Red Rising Trilogy

I really like Ren, but I think Darrow would be a more of a kick ass sidekick, I’m halfway through Golden Sun and there is a fight scene between him and another character and its just epic!

Final answer: Darrow

You’re a manager of an avocado admiring company, which character would you fire for lack of communication skills?

Cameron Hamilton from Wait For You and Rowan Whitethorn from  Throne of Glass Series

Hmm, Cam doesn’t really have communication issues. However, I would say that Rowan is not particularly a people person… so yeah Rowan.

Final answer: Rowan

You’ve just finished a book in which your favorite character dies, which character would most likely comfort you?

Akiva from Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Jess from When Lightning Strikes

Jess is a very ballsy character and not what I would call soft, where as Akiva has suffered a lot of loss so would be able to empathize with you.

Final answer: Akiva

It is high school, which of these characters would most likely be part of the popular clique?

Katy from the Lux Series and Aelin from Throne of Glass

Without a doubt Aelin, mainly because everyone would be terrified of her!

Final answer: Aelin

It’s your birthday, which character would have the nerve to forget?

Azriel from A Court of Thrones and Roses Series and Desmond Flynn from Rhapsodic

Azriel wouldn’t do this, he doesn’t strike me as someone who would forget anything. Where as Des probably would and then make a huge gesture to make up for it.

Final answer: Desmond Flynn

You’ve just found an upcoming booktube star, which character would it most likely be?

Cole from Alice in Zombieland and Feyre from A Court of Thrones and Roses Series

Hmm, this is a difficult one. I think Cole? I can’t see Feyre A) wanting to be on Camera and B) having the time. Where as Cole is a little arrogant and would relish being filmed.

Final answer: Cole

Sleepover time! unfortunately, you can only invite one person, who would it be?

Layla from Dark Elements Series and Rhysand from A Court of Thrones and Roses Series

Seriously! I love Katy, but who would say no to a sleepover with Rhysand? Not this girl that’s for sure!

Final answer: Rhys

Bam! you’re pregnant, who is the father (or mother…)?

Suze from The Mediator Series and Roth the Dark Elements Series

Again no contest here, Roth! I have a long standing thing for this guy so 😍

Final answer: Roth

You’ve just written a super important text, who would read it and not reply?

Ivy from Wicked and Tink from Wicked

Tink! He’d be too busy ordering shit from Amazon to even bother looking at his phone!

Final answer: Tink

You’ve just woken up and it’s time for breakfast, your mum has suddenly been replaced, who has she been replaced by?

Daemon the Lux Series and Mare Burrow from Red Queen

Ok, so I wouldn’t want Daemon as a parent. So I’d have to go with Mare.

Final answer: Mare Burrow

Sweet Obsession – J. Daniels

Blurb

From New York Times bestselling author, J. Daniels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE novel that does NOT need to be read in conjunction with any other book.

Everyone knows Brooke Wicks loves to have a good time.

She’s not interested in getting serious, settling down, or limiting herself to one man. So when she meets the sexy, irresistible Mason King, she sees another opportunity to let loose and go wild. But the gorgeous Aussie isn’t interested in just a quick fling with Brooke, and if she wants to get into his bed, she’s going to have to do it on his terms.

Loving fast and hard has always been Mason’s philosophy.

He doesn’t want a meaningless connection, he wants it all, and he wants it with Brooke. When she makes her one desire known—to hit it and quit it—Mason wages a plan to ensure Brooke keeps coming back for more. Or so he hopes.

Getting her attention was the easy part. Keeping it might be damn near impossible.

Sweet Obsession is where the Sweet Addiction series meets the Alabama Summer series.


Stats

Page Length: 360
Publication Year:
2015
Genre: 
Romance
Characters:  Brooke, Mason, Joey, Billy


Thoughts

So I read Sweet Addiction a few months back and didn’t really think much more about this series after that, anyway a got an email from BookBub a couple of weeks ago and this book was one of the free ones, so I thought “Hey why not”

Story/ Characters

This story is told from the first person from both Brooke and Mason’s perspectives. I really enjoyed the writing it was nice and easy to follow and kept me engaged.

The story itself was pretty good, I’m a huge sucker for slow burn romance and this book did not disappoint! In a nutshell, Brooke is looking for a quick one time thing with Mason but Mason wants more, he gets Brooke to agree to spend time getting to know one another before they have sex.

I liked both the main characters, I  thought Brookes characters development was good, she grew a fair amount from the start of the book to the end. I really liked how patient Mason was with Brooke. The only annoyance came at the end when Mason really overacted to something and caused unnecessary drama.

Hands down the best part of the book was Joey, who is one of Brookes room mates, this guy needs his own book, he’s just great!

Favorite Quote:

“Breathe, Joey. Keep your fabulous shit together. No mauling the customers. They pay you. You love them.”

Conclusion:

This was an enjoyable light read, nothing to shout about from the rooftops. It’s the perfect sort of book if you’re looking to kill a bit time.

My Rating:  3/5 🌟🌟🌟
