Urban Romance by Nelson George

Book Description

Hip music critic Dwayne Robinson has two main gigs: defending rap's rightful place in the music industry and scoring as many women as possible. But this smooth-talking b-boy has yet to try working love into his lingo--until "buppie" Danielle Embry slides into and rocks his world. A Connecticut suburbanite, Danielle is as far removed from Dwayne's Brooklyn ghetto upbringing as it gets. Yet despite this clash, these unlikely lovers are drawn together. While struggling to grind out a harmonious tune amid the grit and glamour of New York City, they soon find themselves confronted with issues that cut deeper than either of them bargained for. . . .
