Synopsis

This isn’t a story about a bad boy and a girl from the right side of the tracks. This is the story of a man and a woman discovering love is blind to how you grew up, who your friends are, and where you live. Love sees only the heart and soul of whom it belongs to.

Someone once said that the best way to predict the future is to invent it.

As a boy, Jayson Santiago made a vow to leave behind the projects where he grew up. He planned to conquer the world and find a woman who could not only hold it down, but also hold him up. Now he’s the reigning king of hip-hop, and while he has the professional success he always wanted, he’s missing the personal success he craves.

Victoria Watson is the daughter of an oil tycoon who never wanted for anything. Circumstances have forced her out of her protective bubble and into the real world, where she struggles to make ends meet while finding a way to get back the only important thing in her life.

Will they be able to make Jayson’s prophecy come true? Or will they be pushed past their breaking point? It isn’t easy to keep focused on the heart and soul of the one you love when you’re always being tested.

Then again, the best things in life are always worth fighting for…

Jennie’s Review

REAL. RAW. SEXY. These are the words that come to mind when I think of Jessica Ingro’s latest release, Urban Love Prophecy. Not at all your typical love story, ULP presents the reader with real issues, a couple that is NOT perfect, that does not instantly get their HEA. This is what makes the story so real. These two have to work at it, have to overcome real obstacles to make this relationship work and to make it last. It’s not all hearts and flowers for Jayson and Tori, but their story is absolutely one worth knowing.

Jayson Santiago comes from the “wrong side of the tracks”; he’s a bad boy turned successful music icon. In the world of hip-hop he is at the top of the charts and when it comes to women, he is known the world over as a player, no doubt about it. Tori Watson is the wealthy “country club” girl who grew up with everything but now has to work hard to have anything at all, thanks to an evil stepmother. When their paths cross and sparks fly, nothing will ever be the same as the “urban love story” begins.

Once again, Jessica Ingro delivers a love story filled with emotion; her writing style is so perfect. The story flows seamlessly and I definitely did not want to put it down. Tori and Jay’s feelings are so real, so genuine. I found myself wanting to punch Jay for his actions at times, yet there were plenty of moments where he just made me swoon. I shed tears right along with Tori when some circumstances arose, and at other times she made me smile and laugh. Of course it wouldn’t be such a perfect love story without the steamy scenes, and Jayson and Tori certainly are made for each other. Jay is HOT, that’s all there is to it. He is sexy and knows just what he’s doing. When these two get together, watch out!

I cannot end my review without mentioning how much I loved the supporting characters in this story. They all added to the dynamic and flow of Tori and Jay’s story and I really hope we get to cross paths with them again at some point in the future.

Jessica Ingro you’ve done it again! Another absolutely amazing love story, one that is so real, and so sexy it stays with you long after the last sentence is read. Thank you for bringing Jayson and Tori to life and for sharing this Urban Love Prophecy with the world!

 

Excerpt

Copyright © Jessica Ingro

“You do know you’re beautiful, right? And your mom would be proud to see what a special woman you’ve become,” he whispered in my ear. When he was done speaking, he pulled back fractionally and stared into my eyes. Blue meeting green in an effort to communicate how genuine that statement was for him.

My breath hitched, and I fought hard to swallow past the lump that was building in my throat. He said the most perfect things at just the right time. In that moment, I really wanted this man beyond just in my bedroom. I wanted him in my life.

He leaned away and settled on my side of the booth, propping his foot up on the opposite side and stretching his arm along the back of the seat.

“What other songs did you like? Or is it presumptuous of me to assume you liked more than one song on that CD?” I was grateful for the lighter topic, since the chemistry between us was starting to feel a bit combustible.

“Not at all. I liked most of them, but ‘The Struggle’ spoke to me. I felt like you gave me a glimpse inside you. It was humbling to be given that opportunity. To hear how you struggled to be the son your mother would be proud of and the man that a woman would want to spend her life with. The man a daughter would want to call father. It was really very beautiful.”

I watched as something passed over his face that was both breathtaking and raw. Before I had a chance to put my finger on what it was, it was gone. Replaced with a serious look that made me cringe a little. I wanted the playful Jay back. Not the one that appeared to be lost in thoughts, and not all of them good.

“Although I have to say the song about fucking your best friend’s girl one night and then hitting an entire sorority the next was just as inspirational,” I deadpanned. “How did you possibly fit them in all in one night? Inquiring minds want to know.” I winked and hoped that would break the mood. It worked when he threw a fry from my plate at me.

“Brat.” He laughed with a half grin on his face.

“Really, though, is that true? Did you really have sex with that many women in the span of one night?”

He looked uncomfortable for a split second before answering. “Maybe not all of them, but there were quite a few.”

“Huh. So you’re a stallion then?” Growing up with horses I knew that stallions were often bred more than once in a day. If this story was true, I could imagine him going all night like a real thoroughbred. That thought was a little too much for my brain to comprehend.

“I haven’t had any complaints. And I’m certainly hung like one.”

“You know, they say the men who brag the most are the ones that shouldn’t be bragging.”

“Oh, Tori. Now you’re testing me. If you want me to show you, baby, it can be arranged.”

About A Novel Love

I have always had a book in my hand. With ebooks many in hand! I really enjoy sharing my favorite authors with people, and helping others find a new favorite author. When I was young I knew I was in trouble when I was sent to my room and COULD NOT read. Truly a tragic punishment for sure! Join me to talk about books we love or help others find new books to read! I am willing to read books in exchange for an honest review, and would be happy to participate in blog tours and cover reveals. Some of the types of books I enjoy are romance, romantic suspense, alpha males, rockers, paranormal (shifter), tattooed guys, contemporary romance, MMA fighters, NA romance, Christian romance, sports romance, ménage and BDMS.
