STORY EXCERPT

 

Jade was moving around the large crowds of people. The band was playing on the small stage, and guys were ordering pitchers of beer by the pool tables, her section tonight.

“Darling, you just keep those pitchers coming. I got this right here and will be covering their rounds for the night,” one big guy with a light brown beard said to her as he looked at her breasts and licked his lips, tapping his credit card against his muscular chest. She imagined he thought he was something special.

She gave him a wink. “You got it, honey,” she said.

His friends smiled and looked at her as they clinked beers, and when she turned she knew they were still talking about her and checking out her backside. Tonight, she wore a pair of very tight-fitting hip hugger jeans that showed off her skin on her belly and back, a small piece of the tattoo she had but not much, just enough to indicate she had it, and her belly ring, too. All ways to get the patrons to tip her well. Add in the one-size-too-small sleeveless T-shirt that she cut the collar out of so it showed off her shoulders and just a little bit of her deep cleavage when one shoulder sagged, and oh yeah, she would be getting the big tips tonight.

She didn’t like wearing any tank tops. Her breasts were just too large, and no matter how hard she tried to not show too much cleavage, or even her bra, it wouldn’t work. She didn’t need the distraction, but it was obvious she was well endowed, but conservative, slightly. The other girls asked why she didn’t flaunt her assets more. She didn’t want any trouble and was trying to blend in.

As she approached the bar, she noticed Seren Fortane immediately. His eyes gazed over her body, and then she looked away and locked onto another man, just as big, similar attributes, and the same brown hair as Seren, and she had to do a double take. She squeezed by them to get the other pitchers from Ade.

“Hey Jade, how’s it going tonight? Super busy, huh?” Seren asked her, and he didn’t move away but kept close. She felt it everywhere.

She turned slightly, waiting for the beer order. “So crazy. How is work?” she asked.

“Good. Uhm, meet one of my brothers. This is Shane,” he introduced her, and she looked up at the big guy she’d spotted before, noticing now that he had the same blue eyes as Seren.

“Nice to meet you,” she said, and then heard Ade say the order was ready. She stepped one foot onto the footrest of the bar and grabbed the tray. “Well, have a good night, I have to get moving. Nice meeting you.”

Shane nodded and looked at her body, and she felt it all over just like when Seren looked at her. Her heart pounded in her chest. She’d been around Cherry Hill long enough to know the deal and to be concerned. Men shared women around here, and when they engaged in ménages, they were forever. She didn’t have the luxury of ever dating, ever having sex, and certainly she had her fears. She didn’t want any trouble and didn’t want to have to leave this town, but if things got complicated, she wouldn’t have a choice. No, she didn’t need to jump the gun. Can’t get complicated if she just said not interested.

“What did you think?” Seren asked Shane as Shane took a sip from his beer, his eyes still tracking Jade.

“What do you mean?” he asked as she disappeared into the large crowd by the pool tables.

“About Jade. What did you think?”

“Is this why you asked me to come here?”

“Bro, she is gorgeous.”

“She’s young. What is she, like, twenty?” Shane asked, sounding grumpy even to his own ears.

“Twenty-three actually.”

“Shit, she’s young.”

“I’ve been coming here for a while. She’s new to town. Been in Cherry Hill for a month.”

“What else do you know?”

“Not much. She lives in a one bedroom above Finnerty’s bar.”

Shane scrunched his eyebrows together with concern.

“I spoke with John and Keith, and they keep eyes on her and make sure she’s safe coming and going. She’s gorgeous, and I can tell you felt an attraction to her, as well. You didn’t move an inch away from her. You were inhaling that sweet, light perfume of hers.”

“She smelled good, that’s all. I’m around cars and grease all day, so it’s nice to smell something pretty.”

Seren gave him a nudge. “It’s more than that.”

“What is this, man?”

“Let’s wait to see if Colby and Quincy show up and notice her, too.”

“Not going to happen. Just like I wasn’t going to come by either. We’re tired, and this is the same shit. We aren’t the type for hanging out at bars. I’ll have a couple of beers with you then head out.”

“And not talk to Jade some more?”

“Why?”

“Because I like her, and I think the three of you will, too.”

Now, Shane felt shocked at his brother’s words. It all hit him at once—sharing a woman, having what their parents had. “We were kids, Seren.”

“We never gave up the dream, the fantasy.”

“That’s exactly what it is, a fantasy. We’ve all been through too much shit. We barely share anything with one another anymore. Those days as kids of dreaming are over, bro.”

“No, I don’t believe they’re over. I believe we’ve been living our lives, figuring out who we are and what we want. We need to get back on track, get close again.”

“Then what? Pursue some young woman you know nothing about?”

“Did you feel something when she was close to you, Shane?”

“What does that matter?”

“Just answer the damn question.”

“How could I not? She has a great body, was sweet, and smelled good. I felt something, but any man would feel an attraction to her.”

Seren shook his head. “Not any man. She’s going to be ours. Mark my words, I know it. I feel it. I just need to get you guys on board to give this a try and to, well, convince Jade to spend time with us out of Harper’s.”

“You sound like she isn’t interested,” Shane asked.

“She’s shy, doesn’t date, turns down every guy who asks her out, and she doesn’t hang out with any other women outside of work. She keeps to herself.”

Shane took a sip from his beer and looked for Jade. He eyed her over and watched her shake her head and her finger at two men who were smiling and begging her for something. “Sounds like trouble to me.”

“We’re soldiers, and we’re resourceful. How much trouble can one sexy little brunette be?”

 

ADULT EXCERPT

 

“Hey, beautiful,” Seren said to her as she grabbed onto the door and hopped up into the truck. Shane guided her, but she didn’t need his help. He however, took the opportunity to brush his palm along her ass and thigh. He hopped in next to her and closed the door as Quincy got into the front passenger seat.

“All set?” Colby asked, and they said yes.

Seren placed his hand on her knee and gave it a squeeze. “Get enough sleep?” he asked.

“Ehh, it was an okay night,” she replied. She wouldn’t tell them that she kept thinking about this date and spending time with them.

“Was it a good night tip wise?” Seren asked her.

“Actually, it was really good. Those guys that bought you the round of beers were pretty drunk and closed the place down.”

Seren squeezed her knee. “None of them were waiting for you, were they?” he asked.

“No, why would you ask that?”

“They had their eyes on you most of the night,” Colby said, and he sounded kind of grumpy.

“Even if they did, Ade, Charge, and Orlando walk us out, plus Harper’s men were there, too,” she said to them.

“Good, because some strange things have happened around here in the last year,” Quincy said.

“I’ve heard some of the stories. We take precautions. I do, especially coming home and living up above a bar. John and Keith are awesome, though. They keep eyes out for me. I’m not used to that yet at all.” She clasped her hands on her lap.

Seren caressed her thigh. “Why is that?”

“I just take care of myself, I guess.”

Shane brought her hand to his lips, causing her to look up at him. “Now you got us taking care of you, too,” he said, and she felt her cheeks warm.

“I’m able to handle things, you know.”

“Oh, you think so? A little thing like you?” Colby questioned from the front seat.

The truck stopped behind the garage and office building. They started to get out, and when she started to walk around the truck, Colby was there. He lifted her up, and she straddled his waist as he pressed her up against the truck. “What would you do if some guys tried to grab you?” he asked. She stared up into his eyes and had her palms against his chest.

“Whatever was necessary,” she replied.

He gazed over her breasts in the V-neck T-shirt she had on. “You shouldn’t have to worry about that. Things will change soon enough,” he said and pressed his mouth to hers. She didn’t know what he meant, why he seemed so serious, but as he deepened that kiss, things got wild quickly. She moaned into his mouth as he cupped her breast and slid a hand over her ass. He squeezed and then pulled from her mouth so he could suckle along her neck and into her top.

“Oh God, Colby. Oh God,” she repeated as he maneuvered his mouth into the cup if her bra and started suckling and licking, searching for her nipple. She tilted her head back, and he slid the strap of her bra off her shoulder, exposing her breast and immediately sucking on her tit.

“Beautiful. Get a good taste, Colby. Make her see there’ll be nothing but pleasure with us,” Shane said, standing by her side. He stroked her cheek. She panted when she locked gazes with his eyes and saw that look of hunger. He gave his brother a tap to his arm, and Colby moved his mouth back to her lips while Shane cupped her breast and began to feast on her tit next. She moaned and rocked her hips, then gasped as Shane pinched her nipple. She pulled from Colby’s mouth. “Oh God, Shane. Holy God.”

“Share her,” Quincy said, and in a flash, Colby and Shane handed her to Quincy, who immediately kissed her on the mouth and pressed her against the truck. Seren was there, too, and he pushed down her top a little lower and began to feast on her breast like his brothers had. She moaned into Quincy’s mouth. Then Quincy pulled back. “Mine,” he said, and Seren released her breast so Quincy could take his place.

He started to lick and nip her skin and her breast, then suckle the tip into his mouth. Seren cupped her cheeks and held her gaze as she panted for breath. “Soon, you’ll be all ours to explore fully and fill up with cock. We’ll claim you as our woman, Jade. You want that? Because we do.”

She couldn’t answer as something coiled up in her belly, and then she moaned.

“Holy fuck,” Colby said.

“God damn,” Shane said.

Quincy and Seren continued to feast on her and kiss her until they got their fill and she felt limp in Quincy’s arms.
