Find on Goodreads

The Yellow Jackets are a group of young men in their early twenties who have taken a vow of sexual purity. But making a vow and keeping a vow is two different things. Each of them struggle in one way or the other to remain sexually unscathed. Bryant, one of the Jackets, has moved off campus from the all-boys school and finds himself neighbors to a very tantalizing beauty. Only this girl is much more than she seems, and unbeknownst to Bryant, she makes it her mission in life to take his virginity. Bryant and his roommates, in the meantime, are slowly discovering that all of their fellow Yellow Jackets have secrets. Not to mention that there’s a spy in their midst—one who is doing everything he possibly can to expose the fact that the Yellow Jackets are not as ‘pure’ as they all seem.

My Review

I was a little surprised by this book. It was more of an enjoyable, fun read than I expected.  The bit of mystery kept my interest, as well as wanting to see one of the main characters get what she deserved.

The idea of the Yellow Jackets was refreshing, given the current sexual atmosphere of young adults. It wasn't going to be easy for this group to avoid it. Bullies were often making fun of them and girls were after them just to say they slept with one. It seemed like they took things to the extreme, almost annoyingly so. How often do you really need to meet to discuss NOT having sex and repeat their vows? Several of the men in the group were in it because of family tradition. Bryant's parents were over the top about it all.

In the end, I did enjoy the book. I would recommend it if you are looking for a light-hearted fun read. 

I adore writing about everything. Creating worlds and the complicated, tortured, sometimes insane characters within them makes me happy. I write horror, paranormal, dystopian, and the occasional rom-com.
