Staying with him will be dangerous…
They call him Billionaire, Environmentalist, and Playboy.
I call him Boss.
I try to keep it professional, I want to resist him, but the pull is too strong.
A bomb threat, a ransacked apartment, mysterious warnings, all telling me to leave him alone.
Yes, staying will be dangerous, but leaving him will destroy me.
Royally Flushed is a standalone romance with a happy ending. It’s second in Tech Billionaire Series. It takes place in the same world as the Billionaire Venture Capitalist and Clear Holiday and includes many of the favorite characters from the other books.
He follows me up, and when we reach the landing below my apartment, my front door looks off—as if it’s cracked open. I stop and study it. That’s strange. Could Stacy or Angela have returned home early?
Jackson follows my gaze. “Did you leave your door open when you left?”
Brian stood with me as I locked the door this morning. “No, but maybe one of my roommates came home early.”
Everything in Jackson’s body tenses, and he stomps up the last few steps. He pushes the door open and blocks my view.
I scurry up after him, and despite his broad shoulders, I can see the mayhem in my apartment. My hand goes to my mouth. Everything has been ransacked, and I catch a glimpse of blue spray paint on the walls.
“Who… Who…would do this?” I begin to sob.
I try to pass him and get a better look. There’s so much to clean up. What am I going to tell my roommates?
“Come on. Don’t touch anything,” he says. “Let’s go downstairs and call the police.”
We return to the waiting car, and Jackson gets on the phone. “Jim, there’s been a break-in at Corrine’s. Call Detective Lenning and please meet them at her apartment. Then when you’re ready, we’ll be at my apartment. I’m taking Corrine there.”
I’m numb. They were in my apartment. They touched our things. I feel absolutely violated.
Jackson takes me in his arms and holds me tight as the car zips up the hill to his apartment. As we drive, he jumps from call to call, and they’re all concerning me and my apartment. I try to listen, but I can’t follow what he says.
When we arrive, I stagger to the elevator and follow Jackson into his penthouse apartment. He sits me down on the couch and returns with a small glass of amber liquid.
“Here, drink this. It shouldn’t do anything more than calm your nerves. Jim is on his way over. The police are headed to your apartment.”
I nod. “Who could’ve done this?”
“When you left your apartment this morning, Brian escorted you down, and he saw you lock up.”
I’m unclear if he’s asking for confirmation or stating fact. “Were my roommates home? Stacy is supposed to be in Mexico with her boyfriend, Sean. And Angela has been at a trade show in Orlando. Were they there? Are they okay?”
Jackson shakes his head. “No one was in the apartment. But all the bedrooms and the kitchen look the same as the main room. When are they due to return from their trips?”
“Both on Sunday night.” I cover my face, but I’m all cried out from the afternoon.
“I think everyone will need new beds, and your couch is destroyed. Whoever came in was very angry.”
“Why me?” I lament.
“I have a guest room, and you’ll stay here,” Jackson informs me.
My head whips up. “I can’t stay with you! You’re my boss.”
