Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever - Cover

Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever
(The Ghetto Girl Quadrilogy #1)

Genre: M/F, Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

Keisha Beale, a street-wise Chicago south-sider two years out of DePaul University, is a quarter million dollars in start-up capital away from realizing her dream of owning a recording studio/record store. She takes the place of her more business-savvy partner in a meeting with Tristan White himself, the venture capitalist they’ve targeted to fund their business.

A bi-racial–African American and Brazilian–woman with a troubled past, Keisha has been so focused on her business pursuits that her love life has been non-existent. Tristan White is the devastatingly handsome, 32-year old CEO of White Enterprises, the firm he built using only the inheritance his mother left him to prove to his father he had the mettle to do it alone. He comes from a long line of wealth, and lives the life of a “one-percenter” on Chicago’s Gold Coast. Tristan is accustomed to controlling every aspect of his life given his birth into a world of white privilege.

50 Shades to the 2nd Power…

When Keisha and Tristan’s worlds collide, sparks fly, and a fever is ignited in them both that they have never experienced before. It turns out they each have secrets, but together, in the unorthodox arrangement Tristan proposes, they discover passions they never knew they had.

… Meets Keisha From The Block!

The Ghetto Girl title is, in all truthfulness, a misnomer. Keisha Beale is a highly-educated young woman who just happens to have been born on the other side of the socio-economic tracks. She embraces all of who she is, and navigates almost effortlessly in both worlds.

Erotic, amusing, and in places hilarious, the Ghetto Girl Romance Quadrilogy is a parody with a new take on a Fifty Shades type story that will take you even further into the BDSM world, and promises to make the vanilla original Fifty Shades more colorful.

Fifty Shades of Jungle - Keisha and Tristan

Excerpt:

“Speaking of our association, how long are we talking here?”

Tristan leans against the building, folds his arms casually, and props one jean-clad leg behind him. “You anxious to get rid of me, Ms. Beale?” He deflects with questions better than anyone.

I fold my arms, not allowing him to stare me down. “I asked my question first.”

“If I were to answer based on past associations: a year. Two max.”

So, my shelf life was the equivalent of a fiscal year or two if I looked at it from a business perspective. Could I even survive that long?

“And just how do your, er, associations usually end?”

“I or my submissive will allow it to come to a conclusion organically.”

“Meaning, you or she will indicate it’s not working and exercise your right to dump or be dumped?”

“Yes, but it’s usually very amicable.”

Struggling to look impassive, I chew on by bottom lip despite myself. “You’d better be glad you didn’t meet the twenty-one-year-old version of me.”

“Why is that?”

“That Keisha didn’t take forced endings too well. She was fond of super gluing sensitive body parts of ex-boyfriends.” I have no idea why I admit this to him. I suppose it isn’t as much to let him know I’m nobody’s fool but to get a rise out of him.

Tristan doesn’t react. We are both wearing dueling poker faces. “As I’ve said before, you’re not a woman who should ever have to play host to the green-eyed monster. Never let anyone usurp your confidence. Not even me.”

It doesn’t surprise me that Tristan is wholly self-contained and keeps his emotions close to the vest. If I hang around him long enough, I could learn some things. “Thanks for the . . . advice.”

Christmas With The White Brothers (A Jungle Fever Novella)

Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Erotic, Interracial

Synopsis:

Keisha Beale has an ‘arrangement’ with one of the richest men in Chicago, who treats her like a queen, but she wants normalcy for the holidays. Well, as much normal as you can get from a man like Tristan White, who has everything and doesn’t think love is something he needs.
Jada Jameson’s dark past may be surprising to some considering the family she comes from. Nathan White wants her in every way a man wants a woman, but she needs hardcore kink, and the pace at which their relationship is progressing has left her wanting more.
Will the ladies of Kente Studio Records get everything they want from their first Christmas with the White brothers?

Excerpt:

Tristan came prepared, of course. He had a big-assed gift bag for Mama, and even a present for the Reverend. I shook my head.

“What?” he says.

“You never do anything half-assed,” I say.

He smirks. “It’s like you like to say, ‘Go big or stay home.’”

Those are strange words coming from a man the cost of whose suit could feed all the homeless people in Chicago on Christmas Day. He reaches to ring the doorbell, but I touch his hand and stop him.

“Why do you go to such lengths with my mother? I’m your submissive. Nothing more.” I gesture toward his gifts. “All this is making her think this thing between us is more than it really is.”

He seems taken aback for a moment, but then he responds. “You’re wrong. You’re my business partner, and I hope, after almost a year, you would now consider me a friend.”

“With benefits,” I say morosely. “At this rate, you’re going to have to break up with both of us when you decide it’s time to move on.”

“Do you want me to beg off? I could get a call and leave.”

I don’t get to answer because Mama swings the door open. “Well, are you two going to stand out her yakking, or are you coming in?”

“Coming in.”

“Most definitely,” Tristan and I say almost simultaneously.

The first thing my Mama did on Christmas Day was embarrass the hell out of me. Two Christmases before I’d given her a digital camera and a miniature photo printer to take pictures of all the grandchildren my brothers had blessed her with. They’d all gotten a head start because I was what Mama called her pre-menopausal baby. I’d thought she’d gotten over the ‘shutter bug,’ but she proved me wrong.

While Tristan leans in and gives Mama a hug and presents her with his gift, Reverend Johnson gives me a hug. After all the greetings are done, and we’ve hung our coats on the coat tree, Mama grabs her camera off an end table.

“There’s mistletoe,” she says pointing at the ceiling above us.

“I’ve never been one to let a perfectly good cluster of mistletoe go to waste,” Tristan says and sweeps me into his arms and plants a back-bending, dramatic movie-style kiss on me.

“Awww,” Mama says and snaps, but the camera’s flash malfunctions. “One more, one more.”

“So sad, you missed your chance,” I say and begin to move away.

Mama’s not having it. “Come on, Keisha, be a sport now. Tristan, don’t let her get away.”

Of course, he does exactly what Mama says and pulls me back underneath the mistletoe. “Come on, sweetheart, let’s make this holiday memorable for your mother.” Tristan scoots in close, bends his knees, and holds me in a tight hug, cheek-to-cheek, and our faces angled toward Mama and her camera.

“Big smile,” Mama says. We smile on cue and she gets her money shot, but Tristan doesn’t let me go. He leans in and kisses me tenderly really laying it on thick for Mama.

“Awww,” she says again. “You remind us old geezers what it’s like to be young and in love.”

Tristan and I both stiffen, but I recover first and pat his back, as if I’m soothing him, because I’m sure those words have shocked the shit out of him. My eyes shoot daggers at Mama, but she just smiles and acts all aloof.

My Review: 4/5 Stars

Let me start off by saying I have not had the pleasure of reading this series, but after reading this book I might need to give it a try.

Keisha Beale has the man of her dreams, but the one thing she doesn’t have and wants dearly is his heart. Tristian White feels that the relationship he has with Keisha is fine the way it is and doesn’t think it needs to change.
Add the holidays into the mix and Keisha’s parents believe their relationship is something serious when she brings  him home for the holidays. Will Keisha get her Christmas wish and Tristian tells her that he loves her?

All Jada Jameson what’s for Christmas is a more in depth D/s relationship with her Dom Nathan White. Will the holiday cheer bring her what she needs or will it see her left out in the cold?

I really enjoyed this Christmas novella. It was well written and the words followed together and I liked how Keisha and Jada interacted with each other and showed each other the support they needed. I liked how they were when they were with their boyfriends. I wish the novella was longer, and went into more details during certain parts, but overall I would recommend it. I would also recommend reading the series from the beginning so you won’t be just as confused as I was when things were brought up that was obviously mentioned in other books.
