"L.V. Lewis is a five star author with the potential to control the romance genre!" ~ MCS Film Review Team


"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 of humor. So that takes care of the title. So don't be afraid of it because of that." -- Nia Forrester, Author of Commitment, Unsuitable Men, The Seduction of Dylan Acosta


"I enjoyed Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever because 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 (Ghetto Good Girl) and Fairy Hoochie Mama their own book! They're that funny." -- The Black, Author of Passion's Nectar, The Neighbor, and Elle

From the Author

DISCLAIMER (2/25/14): I had resisted doing this until now, but every once in a while, someone purchases this book and doesn't realize it's a parody. If you don't care for spoofs of other works, this book may not be for you. If you are sensitive to humor ala Saturday Night Live, In Living Color, MadTV, or Scary Movie, the over-the-top characterizations in this book might offend. At its core, this book has a message, but it might be obscured by the inability to separate the comedic intentions from the title and the heavy-handed cultural satire.

More About the Author

Growing up, L.V. Lewis wanted to be an internationally known rock star, but unfortunately, lived in the wrong part of the country to pursue that career (and neither American Idol nor The Voice were available then). An early love for the written word gave her the plan B she sought. Her career as a contract manager was not creative writing by a long shot, but it didn't require her to spend the hundreds of thousands of dollars required for a law degree. It does pay the bills while she dabbles in the publishing world as an author on the evenings and weekends.

LV lives in Florida with her husband. They are the parents of four children, three of whom don't think they need their parents anymore, so they share their home with a sweet female German Shepherd and an alpha male Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix who thinks he rules the world.
Her love for writing is only eclipsed by her love for her family.

Format: Paperback
Summary: Tristan White is the devastatingly handsome, 32-year-old CEO of White Enterprises. He comes from a long line of wealth and he lives the life of a "One-Percenter" on the Gold Coast of Chicago. He is born into a world of white privilege and is used to controlling every aspect of his life. Keisha Beale is a "ghetto girl," two years out of university, who is starting a business venture, needs capital, and takes the place of her more business-savvy partner in a meeting with Tristan White himself. She's a black American woman from the south side of Chicago, with a troubled past. She has been so focused on her secular pursuits that her love life has been put on the back burner. As you can probably surmise from the title, when their worlds collide, sparks fly, and a fever is ignited in both of them that they have never felt before. It turns out that Tristan has some secrets of his own and once Keisha agrees to enter into his world, they both discover passions that they never knew they had.

Review: This story is obviously an homage to E.L. James', Fifty Shades of Gray, which I have also read. Both stories are about forbidden love. In this particular case, the taboos are their interracial romance, their class differences, and the intermingling of business with pleasure. Adding to that, Tristan introduces Keisha to the world of BDSM where the words "master" and "slave" take on a whole new meaning when a white man is weilding that kind of control over a black woman in America. This changes the whole dynamic of the story it is based on in a very insightful, humorous, and sensitive way.

I would highly recommend this read. Erotica and kinky sex is a big taboo in the black American community. We are still a very conservative lot, as a whole.

First and foremost, I haven't been moved to do a customer review in a lot time, so this is saying something. Anyway, I was hunting around amazon looking for something to read. The funny thing is, I'd been looking up reviews to see if others shared my frustration with the Fifty Shades of Grey series. The characters, their chemistry, their...everything, just didn't do it for me and I couldn't even finish the last in the trilogy. Let me say, I've been tired of the same old same old in the romance genre for a long time. There just isn't enough diversity in contemorary romance for me, and it's annoying. We claim to be progressive yet still our movies and books still largely depict that the only people capable of finding true love is two Caucasian people. That irks me. So, I almost exclusively read interracial romance because it's near and dear to my heart.

Boy, am I happy I found this book. It fixed everything that was wrong with Fifty Shades. Tristan and Keisha have tons of chemistry. I wasn't annoyed once by her Triple-G or Fairy Hoochie Mama. They were hilarious and added to the story, not detracted. I'm even curious about his brother and Jada. If you ask me, this book should be a best seller. Keisha wasn't some pathetic, unbelievable innocent, whiny character. She had a mouth and a back bone. That's a heroine I can get on board with. I'm am very much looking forward to the next book. I will be recommending this book to any and everyone I can.

I've never had the pleasure of reading the 50 Shades books, only because of so many mixed reviews. I'm almost positive it wasn't as entertaining as this book. I loved it, it had me cracking up one page and the next had me fanning myself. I loved the chemistry between Tristan and Keisha. After she took a chance on something different, she was hooked. This was a fun, sexy, exciting read that put a lighter spin on a topic that some might find a bit dark. To me it was awesome and I hate that I have to wait to see what happens next. Hopefully we'll have more from Nathan his sexy brother and her bestie Jada. Great job Mrs. Lewis, I'm so glad I stumbled upon this book.

I read this book in one sitting. From the onset it read like you were either getting all the lowdown from your home girls latest escapade or you felt like the writer needed to get out of YOUR head.The book was sexy, funny, gave insight to a sexual lifestyle that many Black women find taboo and I soooo appreciated the fact that the writer didn't go through the whole mental/moral conflict of racial dating cliche that's so done to death in IR books. The characters may have had issues but their race wasn't one. It is about time its recognized that there are Black women who recognize, are attracted to and date outside their race without having to sacrifice a small goat at the alter for forgiveness or get approval from those who believe they are the gate keepers to Blackness.

I rated this book really a 4.5 star but Amazon doesn't have the Half star. I'm holding back the full 5 because I wished the book was longer.

I'm not sure if this book is supposed to be a spoof or parody of 50 Shades of Grey. If so it FAILED. Not surprising since 50 Shades of Grey FAILED as well. But I digress...

What really irritated about this book besides the head hopping, bad grammar/editing and terrible story line is the "ghetto" heroine. I can't stand books that highlight African American women the way that this author did. Unfortunately, there is enough of this stereotypical behavior that we have to put up with in real life. I don't want to read about it in a book, especially a romance/erotic romance book. That's another genre for those types of characters. There was so much profanity and slang used that I found myself wanting to roll my eyes and neck while placing a fist on a stuck out hip.

Seriously, this was ridiculous and a turn off. I see a LOT of 4 and 5 star reviews so I thought this book would be worth purchasing. I truly regret that I did. I will NOT be finishing this book and I do plan to request a refund.
