Title: Fifty Shades of Grey

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY to the second power meets Keisha and
Jada from the Block.
 If you’ve wondered how an ethnic girl from the hood might’ve
handled an arrangement with an experienced white Dominant, this is your book.
If you’d like to see the sexiest TWIN DOMS in a contemporary romance series in
interracial relationships, this is most definitely your book.
 Aspiring recording studio owners, Keisha Beale and Jada
Jameson, score a rare meeting with venture capitalist Tristan White, and are
thrust into a world beyond their wildest imaginations.
 Street-wise Keisha is startled to realize she wants this
rich white man, despite the certainty that he is out of her league. Unable to
resist Keisha’s sassy, irreverent, and fiercely independent spirit, Tristan
knew from day one he wanted her, too–as his first African American submissive.

Upper Class Jada of the Springfield Jamesons has traveled in
almost the same circles as the White brothers, and has had a secret crush on
Nathan White, the point guard for the Chicago Bulls, for quite some time.

 Both brothers have succumbed to jungle fever, and want a
little coffee in their cream.
 Lured by Tristan White and his offer of fronting the capital
for her business in exchange for kinky sex, Keisha finds herself with no other
option. Keisha is also tortured by a demons from her past, and her inability to
come to terms with them threatens to undermine the future of her business and
her tumultuous, unconventional relationship with Tristan White.
 Erotic, amusing, and in places hilarious, the Ghetto Girl
Erotica Trilogy is a parody with a unique 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 Blacker.
 The first two books focus on Keisha and Tristan’s romance,
and the final two focus on Jada and Nathan’s.

I was expecting a parody on Jungle Fever and BDSM.  That is not what I got.  There were no silly jungle fever and BDSM jokes.  I was pleasantly surprised by the sophistication of this book.  FIFTY SHADES OF JUNGLE FEVER had a marvelous mixture of everything that makes a good book great- even pacing, lots of tension with likable and detailed characters.    Even the secondary characters, who were only in the book for a few paragraphs, were expertly written.

My only complaint was the awkward info dump at the beginning which includes Keisha is trying to fix her weave.  But once the story started, I became jealous of the L.V. Lewis’s effortless writing style, her descriptions, her dialogue tags, and her settings that were all flawless.
FIFTY SHADES OF JUNGLE FEVER is the first romance/erotica that I’ve ever put into my TOP TEN LIST.  Ultimately, I didn’t feel like I was reading erotica or BDSM.  I felt like I was reading a great novel that had erotica and BDSM in it.

BTW, this is my first review of five for the 2013 Blogger Bookfair.  Stay tuned for the rest.
