Asher's Alternate POV
“Who’s that?” Justin asks, I look towards the direction of the bar inside the club where Mike is standing talking to Max.
“That’s Mike, he’s one of the owners of the club.” I say absently looking back down at my phone reading the text I just got from Nico asking about meeting up at the bar in an hour.
“I know who the fuck Mike is, I'm asking about the chick.” I look back inside the club to see Mike with his arm around a young woman. She’s so small that he dwarfs her, her body is tucked close to his, her long brown hair tumbling down her back in waves. The dress she’s wearing showing off her curves from her perfect tits, slim waist and round ass. I'm speechless, I have no idea who the fuck she is but I know I want to know her. Then she looks up at Mike with so much admiration and love calling him daddy that my fists clinch.
“I don’t know who the fuck she is.” I clip angry with myself and pissed off at Mike for doing a chick young enough to be his daughter.
“Chill dude.” Justin says, looking back over his shoulder into the bar I look back inside and see Mike leading the girl down the hall to his office and I can feel bile climb up my throat. “You leavin man?”
“Yeah I’ll call Kenton and let him know that the new guy is working out. First I'm gonna go check and make sure that the cameras in the parking lot are still working after the last storm.”
“Sure I’ll be here.” Justin says from his spot at the door, he knows the rules having worked for Kenton the last five years. I make my way through the club to the back room. I look over the cameras making sure that none of them were moved. When I'm done I make my way to the front of the club, Justin calls me over.
“That chick that was with Mike just left without telling anyone where she was going you want me to let her know the rules?”
“Na I got it I'm heading out anyways.” I head out the front door of the club towards the parking lot. When I see the girl a few feet in front of me.
“YO,” I yell she jumps dropping her bag and keys to the ground. I'm a few feet away from her and stop dead when her eyes meet mine. As amazing as her body is her face is beautiful with big green eyes and full pink lips has me gritting my teeth why the fuck is she dating Mike? And why the fuck do I care? Her eyes look me over and I can tell she’s attracted to me. I cross my arms over my chest and glare down at her. Noticing her palming her keys to use as a weapon this takes me by surprise I almost smile but catch myself.
“Hi,” She says quietly making my eyes narrow even more.
“Yeah… hi, you need to have and escort to your car anytime you leave the club.” I can smell the lite scent of her perfume from where I'm standing and its pissing me off that I fucking love that she smells like peaches.
“Wh… wha. What?” She stutters.
“You.” I say slowly losing patients. “Need an escort to your car anytime you leave the club to your car. All the girls know this shit.”
“It’s my boy’s job to make sure your ass is safe from the building to your car. So don’t piss me off by not doing what you’re told. And trust me sweetheart, I don’t give a fuck if you’re fucking big Mike. Next time, wait for one of the guys to walk you out here.
“Who is Big Mike?” She questions scrunching her eye brows together
“Big Mike, the guy you were hanging on calling ‘Daddy!” I say disgusted with her. “I don’t give a fuck if you’re sleeping with the boss. He should have told you this shit himself or had the decency to walk your ass out to your car.”
Her face pales slightly right before her eyes narrow. “Excuse me?”
“What part don’t you understand, sweetheart?” I say
Her movements are jerky when she extends her hand out to me. “I'm not ‘sweetheart,” I'm November. I'm also Big Mi-“
I cut her off, I don’t want to hear her tell me that she’s Mike’s girl. “Don’t give a fuck who you are.”
“Wow you are so flipping rude, buddy.”
I shake my head. “Don’t care that you think that shit either.”
“Who the hell do you think you are?” She ask, her hands go to her hips showing off the curve to her waist.
I grit my teeth before answering. “The guy waiting for you to get in your car and leave so I can do my job instead of standing out there with you.”
“Ugh, you are such a jerk.” She says looking frustrated.
“November?” I hear Mike call out so I look in his direction then back at the chick who I guess is November. She looks smug and I have to force myself to remain calm when she yells “Yeah, Daddy over here.”
“Hey, Asher.” Mike says patting my back then he walks to November pulling her into his side. I want to rip his hands off her, then he rocks my world. “I see you already met my daughter.” I didn’t know how tightly wound my body was until he said the word daughter. My whole body loosens at his words. Mike has a daughter what the fuck? I look at him to see if he’s lying then over at her when she gives a small laugh that has the muscles in my stomach contracting. All I can do I stare.
“Um, Yeah, dad. He was just telling me that I need an escort when leaving the club.”
Mike is watching her closely the whole time she’s talking, I can’t believe this, Mike has a daughter. Mike who has never even had a relationship that I know of has a beautiful daughter. “Oh,” Mike says scratching his head. “Yeah, I didn’t think about it because you’re not… Ugh you work here… I mean you work here but not really in here.
“Dad,” She says softly giving him that same look that she gave him at the bar. “It’s okay. Asher didn’t know and just wanted to make sure I was safe.”
“Yeah okay,” Mike says and I can see how much he loves her. Why hasn’t he ever talked about her before? “Anyways, Asher this is my baby girl November.” He pulls her closer to him “She just moved here.” I can see the pride in his face when he looks at her.
“Hi,” She says pushing her hand out to me again, her smile making me flinch, I grab her hand, the feel of her smooth skin against my palm when I feel a shock go through our connection. I look down at our combined hands.
“November,” I mumble, I can’t deal with this shit so I turn and walk back towards the club without saying anything else to her or Mike.
“Who is she?” Justin ask from his spot at the door I take a deep breath clenching my fist.
“Mike’s daughter.” I say walking right by him back into the club into the camera room where I zoom in on her and Mike. When she gets in her car and I see Mike walk back inside I make my way to the front door and watch her pull off in her car with some fucking loud ass rap song blaring from her stereo. Once she’s out of sight I pull my keys from the front pocket of my jeans along with my cell, I put my phone to my ear and wait.
“Yeah?” Trevor answers on the third ring.
“You at the bar?” I ask opening up the door to my jeep, climbing in.
“Just pulled up, Cash and Nico are inside. You coming?”
“Be there in fifteen.” I say hanging up. I start up my jeep, roll down all the windows trying to get November out of my head as if it was only that easy.
November is a young woman who is moving on with her life after a terrible attack in an alley that could have killed her. This was the last straw after finding her fiance was sleeping with her mother the entire time they were together. Thankfully she was saved during the attack by Beast, a Harlequin Great Dane that has become her guardian. November and Beast travel from New York to Tennessee to go live with Novembers father, Mike.
Once arriving in Tennessee she agrees to work in the office of her fathers club, taking care of the books and other office duties. November meets her fathers family the morning after she arrives, and then finds out that the club is actually a strip club that her father and uncle own. She agrees to do the books, but with the understanding that she is to be out of the building by 3 pm. Mike takes her to the club to meet a few of the people that he trusts there, in case she were to need anything and he wasn’t around. When leaving this first time, she meets Asher.
Asher is a manly man, running his own construction company with his three brothers (Nico, Cash and Trevor) after leaving the Marines. Asher's parents (Susan and James, who is the Sheriff) are involved in his life, as well as the lives of his brothers. Previously to meeting November, Asher was a man whore, sleeping with women that would also sleep with his brothers. Every time Asher and his brothers went out, they were surrounded by the Big Boobed Barbies (the women that they slept with).
Asher and November’s story isn’t an easy love story, but it is filled with laughs and love, as well as suspense and pain. During the story we find out more of November’s history, and it wasn’t an easy childhood. However it makes you hope for nothing but the best for them going forward.
