Life in the Chastity Zone
Posted by Literary Titan
Life in the Chastity Zone by Holly Brandon follows Chastity “Chase” Morgan, who seemingly has it all lined up in front of her: a potential career as a brilliant female structural engineer, an architect fiancé, and a life full of promise. That is, until her fiancé sends her a cryptic text putting their relationship on hold and sending everything Chase holds dear into turmoil. She learns that he’s run off to Vegas and married another man, and to top it all off, she’s saved her virginity for Grant, her now ex—and she’s a 30-year-old virgin.
Chase seems to be hit with disaster after disaster. Her PhD is denied, sending her into a spiral. But her cousin Roxie is ready to lift her up and encourage her to get back into the dating world. As she cycles through a variety of eager men who would like to show her the ropes of a physical relationship, Chase struggles to balance student teaching and a normal life. Women from her teen years show up and complicate everything as they tear Chase down, but she fights through these troubles and attempts to get her life back on track.
I loved the sense of adventure that continued throughout this story. Chase embraces spontaneity, whether it be in the form of a date with a new man or a trip to Paris. Life in the Chastity Zone carries humor throughout the entire story, and author Holly Brandon does a great job of keeping Chase’s story light and fun even as she endures through tough times.
While I enjoyed the humorous tone that many of the characters brought to the table, I thought some, like Alison or Brent, seemed to be overexaggerated. However, the addition of these dramatic characters allowed the story to feel full of life and high stakes. I would have enjoyed more genuine connection within the story but enjoyed Chase’s adventures overall and I loved the developments of her story that followed her trip to Paris.
Life in the Chastity Zone takes readers on a whirlwind ride through Chase’s life and surrounds us with larger-than-life characters who introduce her to a life full of adventure and strange experiences. If you want to feel as if you could travel the world and fall in love a hundred times, this is the perfect book for you.
