Bollywood actress Cha Chowdhury finally gets a break from her busy filming schedule in India with a quick lay-over in San Francisco before traveling on to Hollywood. She is met at the airport by her Japanese friend Akako and together they explore the 'wild side' of the Tenderloin. Cha spends the night with Akako in her Bay Area home. Akako's black gardeners are men that know exactly what they want, and Cha promptly discovers she has a taste for following their every command. Before leaving for Hollywood she establishes feelings of irrestible lust with a beautiful blond named Cindy.
Would you consider the audio edition of Bollywood Cha in San Francisco to be better than the print version?
Yes, the narrator brings out the scenes in the Tenderloin as if you were there. Cici Kay can do wanders in narration.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Crazy as it sounds I liked Jasmine even though as a character she was not developed. I think it was the mystery and aloofness. Would love to see Kelly Kitano pick-up on more Tenderloin stories.
Which character – as performed by Cici Kay – was your favorite?
Akako! I love Akako because I am hooked on the series. It is always a thrill to see what Akako gets involved in.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The scene when Cha takes the key to open the shed by the pool was erotic.
Any additional comments?
Would love to see Kelly write more short titles. Maybe a bundle of Cha stories.
