Hi guys!

So, over on Tumblr, a taggy thing happened, and Jowita decided to “import” it to WP, so to speak – because honestly, we’ve needed a good taggy game for a while. It’s another challenge about answering questions as one of your characters. I, of course, can’t control myself, so I’ve done both Gina and Enzo and I might do more characters in the future, just because I feel like it. It reminds me I’ve also been planning an OC tag post for Enzo and Lotta, but I keep forgetting to post them. Soon, hopefully!

For now, you get these tags about my favourite criminal and rich boy 🙂



► Name? ➔ Regina Mancini, or just Gina.
► Are you single? ➔ I guess, though whether I’m available is a little more complicated than that.
► Are you happy? ➔ In a way.
► Are you angry? ➔ The same: in a way.
► Are your parents still married? ➔ That’s complicated. Very. Complicated. They’re together and that’s all that matters.


► Birth Place? ➔ Monte Vista.
► Hair Color? ➔ Reddish brown, like my dad.
► Eye Color? ➔ Got dark, olive green eyes from my mum.
► Birthday? ➔ 3rd of April
► Mood? ➔ I have no idea. If you ever find a good way to describe being happy and confused and a little pissed at the same time, hit me up.
► Gender? ➔ I’m a woman.
► Summer or winter? ➔ Summer. I can’t stand the cold.
► Morning or afternoon? ➔ Afternoon. I never get up before noon, because mornings can kiss my ass.


► Are you in love? ➔ I don’t know. I mean he said he was… I don’t know. Fuck off.
► Do you believe in love at first sight? ➔ No, not really. Lust at first sight, however, is a very real thing.
► Who ended your last relationship? ➔ He did. His name’s Rico.
► Have you ever broken someone’s heart? ➔ Nah, not as far as I know.
► Are you afraid of commitments? ➔ Not really. It’s everyone else who’s afraid of committing to me.
► Have you hugged someone within the last week? ➔ I have. He’s a client.
► Have you ever had a secret admirer? ➔ If I have, it’s secret to me, too.
► Have you ever broken your own heart? ➔ With the steady stream of guys just waiting to break it for me, there just hasn’t been a need.


► Love or lust? ➔ It’s hard to have love without lust. At least for me.
► Lemonade or iced tea? ➔ Lemonade. I’m not big on tea.
► Cats or Dogs? ➔ Dogs, I guess, so long as I’m not the owner. Don’t get me wrong, I love the bastards, but I can’t be bothered to take care of them. I prefer visiting other people’s dogs and then let them do the feeding and stuff.
► A few best friends or many regular friends? ➔ Both. I don’t have a preference here.
► Wild night out or romantic night in? ➔ Had a lot of the former, would like more of the latter. Maybe soon…
► Day or night? ➔ Night time is when I’m active and it’s when I work, so…


► Been caught sneaking out? ➔ Only once! I think that’s impressive, considering how many times I’ve sneaked out.
► Fallen down/up the stairs? ➔ I did fall up the stairs once… I was very drunk okay. And it was Lotta’s fault because she leant me her stilettos and bought another round of shots.
► Wanted something/someone so badly it hurt? ➔ Right now, there’s one someone. Let’s not talk too much about it, I don’t know how to feel about it.
► Wanted to disappear? ➔ Every time I’ve been dumped, I’d have liked to disappear.


► Smile or eyes? ➔ Well, that beautiful idiot has both going for him, so…
► Shorter or Taller? ➔ Taller.
► Intelligence or Attraction? ➔ I don’t know.
► Hook-up or Relationship? ➔ At this point, I’m getting ready for something that lasts.


► Do you and your family get along? ➔ My dad’s my best friend (besides Lotta) and the best dad ever. My siblings are great, so is my brother’s fiancée and kid. Mum and I don’t get along super well, but I like her. She’s smart and a criminal dirtbag like the rest of us. I love my family.
► Would you say you have a “messed up life”? ➔ Nah, I’m a pretty ordinary gal… Oh, the crime thing? That’s not messed up—it’s just how we do things.
► Have you ever run away from home? ➔ Nope. There’s nothing to run away from. I love it here.
► Have you ever gotten kicked out? ➔ You mean out of my home, right? Because I haven’t. I’ve been kicked out of a few bars, though… and a museum… and a few homes… and a church. But I can’t imagine ever being kicked out by my family.


► Do you secretly hate one of your friends? ➔ Trust me: If I hate someone, there’s nothing secret about it.
► Do you consider all of your friends good friends? ➔ Yeah, I guess I do.
► Who is your best friend? ➔ Carlotta is my best girlfriend (probably the only one, besides family – don’t have a lot of lady friends) and dad’s my best friend in the world.
► Who knows everything about you? ➔ Carlotta and dad probably come the closest.


► Name? ➔ Oh, it’s a mouthful but here goes… Vincente Edoardo Luigi Cavalcante VII… just Enzo is fine.
► Are you single? ➔ Yes, I am.
► Are you happy? ➔ No. I can’t say that I am.
► Are you angry? ➔ I’m not that, either.
► Are your parents still married? ➔ No, they’re not. They got a divorce when I was seventeen and I haven’t seen my mother since.


► Birth Place? ➔ Collesena.
► Hair Color? ➔ Black.
► Eye Color? ➔ Blue
► Birthday? ➔ 20th of October.
► Mood? ➔ I’m tired. I feel guilty. I feel… in love. But I shouldn’t. There are too many things going on.
► Gender? ➔ Male.
► Summer or winter? ➔ I have no strong preference for either.
► Morning or afternoon? ➔ Mornings. They’re my chance to have a little breathing space before the day starts. I have a very tight schedule.


► Are you in love? ➔ I am, though nothing good will come from it for either of us.
► Do you believe in love at first sight? ➔ Realistically I know it’s not real, though I’ve experienced something rather close to it.
► Who ended your last relationship? ➔ I’ve never been in a relationship, not really. The closest thing I’ve had to a relationship was ended by myself.
► Have you ever broken someone’s heart? ➔ Yes. I’ve broken someone’s heart and I’ve hurt more people than I care to think about.
► Are you afraid of commitments? ➔ I’m not, unless those commitments lead to more pain.
► Have you hugged someone within the last week? ➔ I have.
► Have you ever had a secret admirer? ➔ No, I’m absolutely certain I haven’t.
► Have you ever broken your own heart? ➔ I’ve hurt others, as I said, but I don’t think I’ve ever hurt myself the way I’ve done to others.


► Love or lust? ➔ Both make you do foolish things. It would be easier without.
► Lemonade or iced tea? ➔ I think iced tea, though I prefer hot tea.
► Cats or Dogs? ➔ I don’t think I’d want either as a pet. The animals I have spent the most time around were horses and I like them better.
► A few best friends or many regular friends? ➔ A few best friends are to be preferred.
► Wild night out or romantic night in? ➔ I think I’d prefer to stay in.
► Day or night? ➔ Lately, I’ve come to appreciate nights. It’s when I have a chance to talk to a friend of mine over the phone and I appreciate nights for that. Even if I don’t get much sleep.


► Been caught sneaking out? ➔ I’ve been caught sneaking back in and let’s just say it was something of a disaster…
► Fallen down/up the stairs? ➔ No, I always try and walk carefully on the staircase.
► Wanted something/someone so badly it hurt? ➔ Yes. It seems the feeling never goes away…
► Wanted to disappear? ➔ That’s a yes as well.


► Smile or eyes? ➔ Eyes. If the smile is real, you’ll see it in the eyes. I’ve seen enough fake smiles to know that a smile means nothing on its own. It’s all in her—it’s all in the eyes.
► Shorter or Taller? ➔ I prefer shorter women, if that’s what you mean.
► Intelligence or Attraction? ➔ I’d prefer to act intelligently, though that doesn’t always happen.
► Hook-up or Relationship? ➔ A relationship is preferable.


► Do you and your family get along? ➔ I suppose we do. I’m especially close with my younger sister.
► Would you say you have a “messed up life”? ➔ I don’t think it’s particularly messed up. It’s very busy, but I have everything I need and even more.
► Have you ever run away from home? ➔ Next question, please.
► Have you ever gotten kicked out? ➔ Please let’s move onto another topic…


► Do you secretly hate one of your friends? ➔ No. I have very few friends and I don’t hate any of them. There are a few acquaintances, however…
► Do you consider all of your friends good friends? ➔ Most certainly not.
► Who is your best friend? ➔ Lorenzo Sartore. I’ve known him always.
► Who knows everything about you? ➔ In our circles we don’t really share everything with anyone. I have someone I talk to a lot and she’s the one who knows me the most.

There you have it. I hope you thought it was fun to read these. Now, it’s my time to tag some more people and get this ball rolling. I tag:





And whoever else would like to try it out – I don’t know if I missed someone obvious! (Sorry, I’m not exactly a social butterfly, so I picked the people I talk to most, minus the ones Jowita tagged).

Now then, I’ll leave you here – it’s a little past my usual bedtime, but I just wanted to get this out before I head to bed. I hope everyone’s having a good weekend and if I don’t get to make a post before the new year rolls around, I wish all of you a very happy new year. I’ll see you in the next post.

Aww, the picture of them is so cute!
I love Enzo’s answer about the smile. Plus, it was so obviously referring to Gina!
Honestly, I don’t even know how this tag is called, so I just rolled with the phrase it begins with. And then I added Ron after that in the name of my post.
It’s interesting how Gina had so many boyfriends and Enzo only had something close to a relationship with her. I wonder if his family ever tried to set him up…
Easier without love and lust? So, I get it you prefer to be an aromantic asexual, Enzo? Well, if you so wish…
AND you do have everything you need in your life? UMM, I’m pretty sure you’re forgetting something!!
Obviously, I do love how Gina can’t cope with her emotions either. These two!

    NotJustaBook · December 30, 2018 at 2:29 pm

    Ha, ha, these two have each other in mind a lot, if that wasn’t totally obvious already 😀
    I don’t know either, so I figured I’d just name it like this 😛 It’ll do, I think!
    Yeah, they’re very different in that regard – he’s pretty sheltered and she’s a wild child 😛 Good question. I imagine they’ve been going easy on him since he had his work to consider, though they’ve probably pointed him towards suitable women and encouraged him to befriend them. Not that it’s very succesful, lol 😛
    He, he, I think it’s just because it would be easier to do as his family wants if he wasn’t head over heels for someone he’s not supposed to be into 😛
    I think poor Enzo is being waaaay to nice about his life – it sucks pretty hard, even with all his family’s wealth. But I couldn’t imagine him saying that his family life is rubbish!
    Ha, ha, she’s so bad at her emotions, it’s almost funny 😀 But that just makes it that much more fun to push her in the story!

audreyfld · December 30, 2018 at 2:58 pm

These two are still in so much denial. Grrr…. 🙂

    NotJustaBook · December 30, 2018 at 3:18 pm

    Ha, ha, I know, right?! 😛 Especially Gina…

Kymber · January 5, 2019 at 6:23 pm

This was so much fun! <3 I always love learning more about the characters.

    NotJustaBook · January 5, 2019 at 7:47 pm

    Thank you! 🙂 <3 I saw Jowita tagged you, so hopefully we get to hear from some of your characters soon :)

      Kymber · January 5, 2019 at 8:00 pm

      On Wednesday, we’ll hear from Jem 😀

socallucyfan · January 12, 2019 at 1:58 am

This was so much fun to read. I really loved getting to know more about Enzo, and the time between first meeting Gina and now.
And every time I read anything about Gina I just love her even more. She is my hero, and I really wish I could be more outgoing and outspoken like her.

    NotJustaBook · January 12, 2019 at 8:09 am

    I’m so glad you enjoyed reading it <3 🙂 Yeah, I liked writing more about him. He's sweet. I haven't even posted an OC challenge for him, though I should.
    Gina is so fun to write because she's confident and outgoing - so I really wish I could be more like her as well 🙂

      socallucyfan · January 20, 2019 at 1:12 am

      I almost forgot to say thank you for this tag. I love participating in these games so very much. I am going to wait to reply though, I have an idea of which character I want everyone to get to know. But I am going to wait until he has a bigger part in the story. 🙂

        NotJustaBook · January 20, 2019 at 5:28 am

        No problem. Looking forward to seeing who you pick! 😀 <3

sempreviva · January 27, 2019 at 12:07 pm

This was so much fun! I love that both of them are thinking about each other through their answers <3 Enzo, especially, is so sad that I wanted to give him a big hug 💕 And Gina is a goddess, as always! 😎
Thank you so much for the tag! <3 I know I'm suuuper late, but I'll definitely be doing that! 😀

    NotJustaBook · January 27, 2019 at 6:04 pm

    I’m so glad you liked it. These two are a lot of fun to write. I answered these based on how they’re feeling right where we’re at in the story now, so they’ve got each other on their minds a lot, he, he. 🙂
    No worries. <3 I'm looking forward to seeing you do it as well. Thanks for commenting!

freja64 · March 30, 2019 at 9:13 am

So great to get to know Enzo and Gina more! Feeling in love but being afraid at the same time! Gina is my favorite – she’s so spontaneous and energetic!

Your posts have gone straight to spam since you changed your site, that’s why I haven’t seen this post, even though you tagged me! So sorry, but I’m taking care of it straight away!

    NotJustaBook · March 30, 2019 at 7:47 pm

    I’m glad you like them. 🙂 I love writing Gina. She’s very different from other characters I’ve done.

    Oh no! I honestly just assumed you must be busy. How annoying that it happened!

      freja64 · March 31, 2019 at 11:44 pm

      I’ll get to it from tomorrow on – I have four lagacies I need to catch up on, about twenty chapters each. Will binge read, and I like that!

        NotJustaBook · April 1, 2019 at 7:49 pm

        Not going to lie – I like me some binge reading as well. 😉

amyqueen · September 12, 2019 at 5:17 am

Aww I love this! Kinda bummed I wasn’t around whilst it was going on, perhaps I shall re-ignite it for myself XD Even though it’s fair to say we’ve got a solid grasp on their personalities so far, this was a nice, deeper, peek into both of their characters. Regina’s response to the kicked out question made me laugh, haha. And Enzo’s answer for the smile or eyes… *swoon* He must be protected at all costs 😩

    NotJustaBook · September 12, 2019 at 8:26 pm

    Oooh, please do. <3 I'd be happy to join in, tbh, because I'd like to do character development for Lia and Teo... not that I'm obsessed with them or anything. 😅
    Ha, ha, ha, Gina has been such a blast to write - crazy, crazy woman. 😛 And yeah, Enzo is a precious darling. <3
