Natalie has made a promise: a vow of celibacy, signed, and witnessed by her best friend.
After a string of sexual conquests, she is determined to figure out why the intense romantic connections she's spent her life chasing have left her emotionally high and dry. As Natalie sifts through her past and her present, she confronts her complicated feelings about her plus-sized figure, her bisexuality, and her thwarted career in fashion design.
Piecing together toxic relationship patterns from her past, Natalie finds herself strutting down fashion runways and rekindling her passion for clothing design in the present. All the while, her best friend, Anastaze, struggles with her own secret - whether or not to reveal her true identity to the thousands of fans of her popular blog and her potential first sexual partner.
Clever, sexy, and hilarious, Vow of Celibacy delves into the perilous terrain of love and relationships, the uncertainty of early adulthood, and the sustaining force of friendship. This is an irresistible novel about the stories we can't help but tell ourselves about others, and it captures in perfect pitch what it's like to be a young woman coming of age in America today.

I loved the narration by the author herself. Sometimes she forgot to breathe between time shifts in the story, but overall it was very enjoyable to listen to her voice. She acted out all the different characters, so even when there was a lot of dialogue, it was easy to know who was speaking. It was wonderfully refreshing to read/listen to a story in which the protagonist is bisexual, and the story certainly deals with her bisexuality but it never is a 'big deal'. The story itself wasn't super deep or complex, but just nice and interesting, and there were some really beautiful phrases that the author also narrated beautifully. Worth buying!
