Bitter Sweet By Montigo Serita Jameson is accustomed to disappointment and hard times. Growing up a ward of the state since the age of three months and having no family, has been no walk in the park. She endures physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her foster parents, but somehow manages to become a college senior with a double major and holds down a job at the police station as a 911 dispatcher. However, her last semester of her senior year has brought about some challenges that only the strong can survive. After meeting the man of her dreams, Shawn Taylor, can she hold it together with all of her issues, to keep him? Shawn Taylor has always been the one to take care of everyone. After the death of his mother and having an absentee father, Shawn is forced into early adulthood at the age of fourteen.
His hero mentality however, pushes him into the wrong lifestyle. Selling drugs for the biggest dealer in Beaumont helps Shawn take care of his elderly grandmother and gets him and his brother Devin through college. Now a struggling photographer and artist, he’s offered a job that could get him out of the game. Will it also cost him his family, his new love with Serita, and most of all, his life?
