Teaser Tuesday From Protecting The Billionaire

‪#‎TeaserTuesday‬ Here is a short snippet from Protecting The Billionaire release date 4/18 everywhere.

“Decided at the last minute. Figured I’d visit you and then go see Jake and the baby. Then head home on Monday morning.” Derek went straight to the refrigerator. “I didn’t stop to eat on the way down. Do you have anything good in here?”

“Help yourself,” she said, although there was no need. Before the move down here, Derek had always treated her apartment in Providence as if it was his own, so it made sense he’d do the same thing here. Of course she more or less did that too whenever she visited his condo. “Where are you staying?” She already knew the answer to her question, but asked anyway.

“With you.” He put the pizza she hadn’t finished the night before and a sparkling water on the table and looked over at Rock who’d sat next to her. “Unless that’s a problem, lil sis.”

“If you don’t stop calling me that, it will be.” 

“Has she been this grumpy all day?”

“She was very happy until you arrived,” Rock said, leaning back in his chair as if he hadn’t just hinted at what they’d been doing when Derek interrupted them.

“Guessed as much.”

Her brother’s answer sent the heat in her face up to her scalp.
Derek pulled a slice of pizza out and smiled at her before he nodded in Rock’s direction. “After I eat, I’ll disappear for a few hours.”

Were Rock and Derek really having this conversation?

“Much appreciated,” Rock said.

The groan slipped out before she could stop it. “Will you two please stop.”

Her brother and Rock exchanged some kind of look she couldn’t decipher, and she held her breath. What are they going to say next?
