When three best friends come together for their sorority sister's tony wedding on New Year's Eve, they make a vow at the stroke of midnight to get married within one year. As the three women embark on their search to find their soul mates, they navigate the full-contact sport known as being a SSBFDLA (successful, single, black, female dating in L.A.) and negotiate the shark-infested waters of making a name for themselves in Hollywood.
Can Trista, the hyper-driven celebrity agent, find the time to schedule a meaningful romance? Will Amaya, the sexy starlet, convince the married hip hop-label exec she has been seeing to leave his wife and slip a ring on her finger or will the NBA star steal her heart in the final seconds? After undergoing a complete makeover, will Vivian, the jaded gossip columnist, win back the father of her child?
Set against the seductive backdrop of money, power, and sex, The Vow follows these women as they discover that their desire to find a husband isn't as important as finding themselves.
“A warm-hearted Jackie Collins-meets-Terry McMillan ode to sisterhood, with a few surprises.”
“A juicy read about the complex lives and loves of hip, hardworking young sisters who happen to be Hollywood insiders.”
“Outrageous and fun.”
“The Vow puts readers on a glamorous, sexy rollercoaster ride...The page-turning stories will speak to women everywhere.”
-Erica Kennedy, author of Bling
