Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

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 word, and promises to make the vanilla original Fifty Shades more colorful.

    Story
    "Fifty Shades with a Twist!"
    Where does Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was an enjoyable listen. I was a little worried in the beginning that is was just "too" similar to E L James' Fifty Shades Trilogy; but, there was a more urban twist to the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever?

    Nothing really memorable. Just a fair listen!


    What does Marie Hélène bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her narration kept my attention. I think if I had just read the book, I would have lost interest really quickly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No!


    Any additional comments?

    The story kind of ended abruptly. It definitely left me hanging. I am curious to see where the next installment picks up.

    Story
    "I loved this... Can't wait until next one..."

    Wow! This is a Ghetto Fifty Shades... for real... Stop right now...if you don't want a listen to a ghetto fifty shades.. But I have to admit this was damn near better than the original fifty. Tristan was the real deal... I bit more of a real guy, more so than Christen... and this time around it is not Christen with the issue... it Keshia Beale not Ana Steale... OMG! This was on point! See even my review has gotten all ghetto phab!

    So worth the credit... There are changes from the original story all over the place but the line up is the same. If you have read/listen to the original story you would be able to point them out... and it just makes this better b/c you know how the story has changed... It was great.. I loved when Keshia knocked the rapper out... and ended up at the Tristan house... Great Great...

    So worth the credit... this was done so tasteful. The smex was so much better than 50... I am impressed... Can't wait til book 2... instant download.

    Any additional comments?

    I loved the Narration by Marie Hélène, It was so excellent. Unfortunately i did not enjoy the story. I just couldn't connect with the characters. I found the story was to tame in BDSM for my liking especially when the into says it will take you even further into the BDSM world than Fifty I was expecting much more. Disappointing.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    It's a listen that gets better the longer you listen and by the time you get to the end your anxious for the next addition. Not the best BDSM listen but certainly not the worst. I will be getting the next book in the series.

    "I'm ashamed to say I loved it!"

    Ok Ok, so it is a rip off of Fifty Shades, but it's a good one, it doesn't take itself to seriously and its laugh out loud funny in places. I didn't have high hopes so I was pleasantly surprised by how well written it was, all the references to pop culture made me laugh and reminded me of the old HBO series Dream On. I will be purchasing the rest of the four part story and hope the quality and the narrator remain the same! Also they didn't make the characters sound too ethnic which I appreciate, I mean come on, educated black women don't sound ghetto.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    Story
    "Good Sexy Start to Ther Series"

    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 think you'll enjoy the story, no matter your race/ethnicity or gender. It's well-written and the characters are very likable. L.V. Lewis is one to watch. There are some stereotypical characters in the story, but I get the impression that the author was trying to get across that we all have preconceived notions about each other that are eliminated once we get to know the individual.
    Marie Hélène was fantastic with the delivery of the story

    "Eventually took on a life of it's own"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever to be better than the print version?

    I am not sure I did not read the printed version but I do like audio books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really enjoyed Tristian. He was a more stable version of Christian Gray and not as haunted.This gave us another version of the infamous story, where is was the female character (Keisha) that was in need of the saving.


    What does Marie Hélène bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I do like hearing the different voices of the characters. She is really good with the voices from the different ethnicity's showcased in the book.

    "50 shades better!"
    What made the experience of listening to Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever the most enjoyable?

    I loved how realistic this book is.


    What does Marie Hélène bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She defiantly had the best accent, but when she did Tristan's voice it was just funny!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this book in two days time, then I went and bought a copy and read that.


    Any additional comments?

    Most people will not see this coming it is an enjoyable and realistic book!
