Keisha Beale, a post-college, African American woman hopes to see her dream of owning a recording studio and music store become a reality. Venture Capitalist, Tristan White, a Caucasian, one-percenter, holds the keys to realization of that dream, but it comes with a price. Tristan is prepared to front the funding for Keisha’s business with a bonus if she will agree to be his friend-with-kinky-benefits. Keisha’s acceptance of Tristan’s terms pushes the boundaries of everything she thought she always wanted in life when it comes to love and relationships. After a rocky start, she is reborn as a submissive and embraces his lifestyle with aplomb. Tristan has been adamant that he doesn’t want any emotional attachment. Keisha is all set to try and change his mind, to awaken the dormant desire of commitment in him, until demons from her past make her continued arrangement with him impossible.
“No one is more surprised than I am that I loved this book . . . The title is parody wrapped up in irony cloaked in social commentary with a healthy dollop ofhuor. So don’t be afraid it because of that.” — Nia Forrester, Author of Commitment, Unsuitable Men, The Seduction of Dylan Acosta
I enjoyed Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever, becaue it didn’t take itself too seriously. This isn’t a bandwagon book but a true parody, and that’s what makes it outshine the others. . . If I have one recommendation for Ms. Lewis, it’s this: Find a way to give Triple G and Fairy Hoochie Mama their own book! They’re that funny.” — The Black, Author of Passion’s Nectar, The Neighbor, and Elle
About the Author:
L. V. Lewis is a married, mother of four who lives in South Georgia and works in the Florida Panhandle. A new author who decided stories like Fifty Shades of Grey needed a little more diversity and comedy, penned Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever as a parodied response to those wildly popular books from a woman of color. A voracious reader since Kindergarten, Lewis loves nothing more than to curl up with a good book and a glass of wine. She and her husband are political junkies, a hobby that is time consuming but free. Now that Lewis has teens who think they don’t need their parents anymore, she has taken up another time-draining career of writing. However, she is happy to report, for once, her extra-curricular activity costs far less than her husband’s. Her love for writing is only eclipsed by her love for her family.
