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...
Urban Love Prophecy was as a sexy, hot, and sweet story. I’ve always loved Jessica’s books but this is probably my favorite book from her!!
Tori had always grown up privileged but she lost everything after her sick father’s new wife took everything away from her. She even lost the ability to see her sick father. She lost everything but she took it all in stride and did what she had to do to survive. Tori and Jayson first met when she waitressed at a strip club. He was instantly attracted to the Tori’s beauty and personality. They hit it off instantly and the chemistry and sexual tension between the two was hot and intense but they decide to remain friends.
Tori was a little spit fire. She was sweet, fun, and she never judge Jayson or his past. She wasn’t whiny or clingy but she demanded honesty and respect. She really cared about Jay and those that were important to him.
Jayson had grown up on the rough streets of New York and he vowed to get away from the drugs and violence of his old life. He wanted to find a better life and a good woman to love. He had been burned by his ex-wife, former girlfriends, and groupies, so he tried to keep himself unattached so he wouldn’t be hurt again.
Jay was so sweet and protective of her. He really seemed to care about Tori but he didn’t want to risk being a relationship. He knew Tori was a good woman but he was also waiting to see if she would turn out like all the gold digging women. As their friendship builds that can’t help their sexual attraction and it turns into something much more.
I loved so much about this story. Tori and Jay came from two different worlds but you could clearly see their connection. They really cared about each other and had so much fun together. I had to fan myself because their sex scenes we absolutely scorching! I wanted to see them together but drama, fears, and bad decisions made things so difficult. This wasn’t a picture perfect romance but it was honest and real and I really enjoyed it.

“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.”
