Shafted (Devil's Blaze MC Book 4)(3)

By: Jordan Marie


My thought stops completely when I look up and my eyes lock with those of a man across the room. That may sound crazy, but it’s true. His eyes literally bore into mine, so powerfully I can feel the heat from them all the way over here. He stands up and parts of me that have never taken notice of a man before all come to life at once. It’s as if electricity runs through my veins. The sensation is so strong that I squeak, barely containing a cry of victory when he takes a step toward me wearing a determined expression on his handsome face…and then…he stops. I don’t do it out loud, but inside I’m crying, “But, why!?”

“Who are you looking for?” a man at the bar asks me, pulling my attention from where I want it the most. Before I can answer him, I hear a high pitched squeal that pierces my ears. I turn around, seeing Katie and Beth, and I can’t help but laugh as I run to them.

“Aubree! You’re early!”

“Yeah, they closed school down early for a bomb threat, so I was able to get Pops settled and stuff done around the house early. Figured I’d just come on over here tonight instead of meeting you at the house in the morning.”

Beth holds a hand over her mouth. “Oh my God! Are you okay?”

“I’m fine Aunt Beth. It was a hoax. A couple of the football jocks were bragging about it. It was all a bad prank, but hey, I get to start our weekend together early, so I’m not complaining.”

“I’m so glad. It’s great that Pops agreed to let you come. We wondered if he would. Him and Skull are getting better with each other, but…”

“Yeah, I know. But, Pops doesn’t want to do anything that might upset you two now that you’ve started letting him see his grandchildren again regularly.” I’m told that there was a time when Skull and Pops got along. Pops even lived in a house next to them for a while. Then something happened between the clubs and relationships were strained. Pops found out about me and moved into my father’s house back at the Chrome Saint’s compound. I’ve been hinting to both him and Skull that I’d like to live close to Aunt Beth and Katie, but so far it seems to fall on deaf ears.

Beth and Katie are twin sisters, identical really, but they do have some slight differences. The main being their hair color. Beth has white blonde hair where Katie has darker brunette hair.

“Like we could stop them. He has them spoiled rotten.” Katie sighs.

“They’re so cute, you can’t hardly stop from it,” I tell her.

“You say cute now, wait until this weekend is over,” Aunt Beth says.

“I’m excited about it.”

“Come on, let’s get you out of here before the boys start partying a little too much.”

“Aunt Beth, I am eighteen. I’m not exactly innocent,” I tell her a little annoyed. For over two years, people have been sheltering me from real life, and before that I didn’t get to have a life. It’s frustrating as hell. You would think when your grandfather is the President of one of the biggest motorcycle clubs around I’d be able to spread my wings—at least a little.

“Sweetheart, trust me. Some things you don’t need to see,” she says. I sigh, looking at Katie. She shrugs, as if to say whatever, and I guess that’s all I can say. I follow them out of the room. I look over my shoulder at the man from earlier. He’s sitting now, but he’s looking right at me. Butterflies are fluttering in my stomach, and I bite my lower lip, wishing I could stay…

Near him.





Chapter Three





Jax





“Who is she?”

“She’s Viper’s offspring,” Briar informs me.

“Viper’s? You’re fucking shitting me.” Isn’t that the fucking luck I’d have?

“Nope. The old man Tucker has raised her the last couple years. She’s gotten pretty close to Katie and Beth. She’s here for the birthday party.”

“Tucker let a sweet young thing like that loose in the Devil’s Blaze compound?” I can’t believe it.

“She’s under Skull’s protection.” He knocks his bottle back downing the rest of his beer.

“Fuck,” I say, feeling like I’m repeating myself, but that’s about as much as my brain can process—probably because all the fucking blood is pounding in my cock. Damn, she’s a looker, and when her eyes met mine, I just got this feeling. I can’t explain it, but the way she looked back at me told me she felt it too.

“Yeah, and if that’s not enough reason to stay away from her, you know, just in case you needed it.” I flip him off, but he’s not wrong I do need it. Hell, I’m still debating whether to hunt her down now. “She’s still in high school.”
