Book Blurb

In Brownsville one of Brooklyn’s most dangerous neighborhoods illicit activities exist on every corner.

Jaden Smith long ago refuted the gangster lifestyle and now wants to go far away from the ghetto as possible.

Now, out of school Jaden launches a promotions company, but his meager savings soon run out. Jaden turns to Angelo Sorrentini who agrees to fund Jaden’s venture. He then introduces Jaden to business associates and Mario, his brother and Becca Sorrentini, his sister.

It is during this brief introduction that Jaden is captivated. Becca is beautiful. And there is an air of raw sexuality that exudes from her every gesture. Despite the temptation Jaden maintains his distance.

Meanwhile, Becca enslaved by her father’s traditional ways is miserable. Soon she conjures a desperate plan: a mysterious boyfriend. But who?


Yes, he’s a wild card, a risky bet, but her only chance. Sex with Jaden may be her ticket to salvation!

Jungle Fever is now available at Amazon and Secret Cravings Publishing.
