A Taste of BitterSweet Fruit
GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT FROM THE FIRST PAGE TIL THE LAST!
Khaila and D.C. had what most people would call the perfect storybook romance, and passionate sex that would make any couple envious. They were completely like night and day, but complemented each other in every way. After more than two years together they even started having thoughts of marriage. There was only one thing that stood in their way of happiness. Sick obsession! D.C.'s bitter ex., Fefe, absorbed with jealousy and hate, would stop at nothing to end their love affair. Fefe refused to leave D.C. alone, even if it killed her!
D.C. startled me back to reality. “Baby, you alright? You got quiet
all of a sudden. It’s not like you to be this quiet.”
“Yeah. I was just thinking about how good you feel.”
“Uh-huh, whatever girl. I know something’s not right with you.”
D.C. knew me like the back of his hand.
He knew I was concerned about him, and his inner struggles, which
usually involved money. He felt he was useless in my life. I would
always tell him everything was going to work out, and I would always
be there for him. I loved and respected D.C., even if he did not have
much, because he always worked hard to make it. I knew about his
grim background, and understood why he struggled so much. His family lived in Bronx, New York, poor and unhappy, until his mother died in 1999 of lung cancer, at the early age of 55. D.C. was very close to his mother. He loved her more than anyone or anything else in the world. His father, who still lived in Brooklyn, New York, had always been in and out of D.C.’s life since the beginning. His parents never married.
D.C.’s father always had a couple of girlfriends at a time, which he
usually used for money and shelter. He never did stay in one place long.
His father was just a “rolling stone” as the Temptations would say. Al-
though D.C. would never admit it aloud, he wanted to have a stable
relationship with his father, and it hurt him that his father was barely
His older brother, Vey never was the supportive type and was rarely
there for D.C. when he needed him. Needless to say, they were not
close emotionally, even living together as roommates for almost five
My distant thoughts were interrupted again when D.C. remarked,
“Everything will be alright as long as you’re here with me, Khai. So
stop worrying about me and get back to business woman.” He said jokingly....

A TASTE OF BITTER SWEET FRUIT:
"OMG! Author Kharisma has done it again. “A Taste of BitterSweet Fruit,” is just a taste that will leave you in suspense from the moment you start reading. Starting with the prologue, the reader is captivated by the tales of what will happen with the entire cast. DC is a hard working brother trying to make a life for him and his one and only true love Khai. Everyone knows with love, struggles heartache pain and joy will follow. Each of those trials makes falling in love and being in love “bittersweet.” The drama and suspense does not stop with DC and Khai, to add to the juicy suspense Kharisma has included other characters that are indirectly and directly related to the characters situation, while sharing their own personal drama in the story line. Let us not forget the craziness that is added to the plot. A good story always needs a psycho to thicken the plot, and Kharisma has that added feature to the ongoing plot of this BitterSweet novel. I give this novel 4.5 stars out 5, only because I have to wait to get Part II (Venomous) to the ongoing drama. This is necessary read it will never let you down page by page."
