Morning everyone. I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying October so far!! Today I’m over the moon to be on the blog tour for Life in the Chastity Zone by Holly Brandon, a hilarious romantic comedy with fantastic characters…..
book blurb & info
Thirty-year-old Chastity (Chase) Morgan has always dreamed of her fairytale life—the perfect career, wedding, marriage, family, and on and on. A structural engineer, Chase is brilliant in her line of work, but keeping to her moniker, she is as chaste as they come. Although she doesn’t know the first thing about love and dating, everything changes when she meets Grant Stevens. Wedding bells appear to be right around the corner until he unceremoniously abandons her for another. Derailed but determined, Chase has to find a way to move on. Little does she know that sinister plans are at work to squash her hopes and dreams. While a psychic medium comes to her aide, it’s uncertain whether or not Chastity will follow the clairvoyant’s advice. Only time will tell if she’ll choose between throwing away her virginity and diving full force into the dating world, or clinging to her fairytale life plan.

Chastity (Chase) Morgan is a thirty year old virgin on the brink of getting married. Since she was a child she’s had her life planned out – become a Structural Engineer, get married and have kids – her happy ever after. But just as she thinks it’s on its way, things go terribly wrong!
Thinking her Fiancé is cheating on her, she’s in for a shock. The reality is a million times worse. Heartbroken, and still struggling with things that have happened in the past, Chase embarks on a journey to try and claim her life back. Enrolling back at college to finish her PhD despite the opposition, seeing her shrink and setting out a new ‘for now’ plan with her cousin Roxie, Chase ends up in some hilarious situations. But will her life starting panning out the way she planned…….?
I loved this! There are so many unbelievable moments in this that will make you laugh and cringe all at the same time. And the thing that made it even funnier/more cringey is that some of the things that happened are based on real life!!
Chase is a fantastic character. You can’t help but love her, want to be her mate and want to help sort out her messy life! She’s been through a lot – something has happened in the past and Brandon keeps us guessing for most of the book, adding a sense of mystery. Her love life is absolutely terrible, and in the search for true love she meets some fantastic characters – most of which are gorgeous but completely unsuitable! A hopeless romantic, all she wants to do is find her Husband and settle down, but life has other plans for her…..
Her cousin and best friend Roxie is fab! Completely different to Chase, she encourages her cousin to live a little with some hilarious moments. Daphne is a little legend, I absolutely adored her! I loved Brent even though he would probably drive me nuts if I were Chase! Nana is also a legend – I love that she always has a Martini in hand!! And finally, the men….well there are a lot of them so I’ll leave you to make up your own minds!
I really enjoyed going on the journey with Chase, and was proud of how she dealt with college and her degree. She’s a strong and intelligent woman who definitely deserves her happy ever after! But will she get it? This book left us on a cliff hanger and I cannot wait to read the next one! Brandon keeps us guessing all the way through the book about who Chase might end up with – I changed my mind about who I wanted her to get with so many times!
Overall, this is a fantastic book and the first in the series. Well written and thoroughly enjoyable, the things that happen are believable and unbelievable at the same time! You will feel sad at times for Chase, but mostly you will be laughing your socks off at the situations she finds herself in. If you’re looking for your next book with fantastic, larger than life characters and fabulous story line, a protagonist you will love and moments that will have you in stitches, then you need to check this out. Highly recommended by me
