She stood up to grab her phone from on the counter.
    Her boss was calling, and she glanced at the time. Crap she was late, like twenty minutes late. She answered and bit her lip. “Hey Mike, I am on my way now.”
    “Megan, you are twenty freaking minutes late. I was just about to call my cop friends to go looking for you. What’s wrong ? You are never late!”
    N ormally she was the first one to the office and the last one to leave. “Nothing I got caught up with my boyfriend, but I will be there in ten minutes.” Max lived ten minutes from her office.
    “Fine, and when you get here I need you in my office.” He hung up and she took a deep breath knowing she would get chewed out for being late one fucking time.
    “I don’t know if you should go to work today. You should call your boss back and tell him what happened,” Jax said from behind her, and she slowly turned around to stare at him.
    She arched an eyebrow, and narrowed her eyes at him. “Jax if you want to try to be with me know one thing about me ...I don’t like to be told what to do.”
    He matched her eyebrow raise and glare. “Well, I didn’t ask what you ’d like. I want you safe.” He crossed his arms across his athletic chest.
    She placed her hands on her hips. “So just because we fucked once , you think you can tell me what you want me to do? Because I have news for you, you can forget that or leave. I won’t deal with someone trying to control me. I understand that you are worried about me, but don’t be. I can take care of myself! I’m not the weak girl that got the crap beat out of her anymore.” She stood straighter and took calming deep breaths.
    Jax moved toward her, but stopped about a foot in front of her and he didn’t reach for her. “You can get me leaving out of your head, because I’m not going anywhere.” He wrapped an arm around her waist and pulled her to his hard chest. His lips collided with hers stealing her breath, but she wasn’t complaining. She tangled her hands into his hair to hold him to her.
    When he pulled away she swayed a little, and he chuckled. She rested her hands on his chest, and his breathing harmonized with hers. “You’re going to drive me crazy, aren’t you?”
    He gave her a heart stopping grin, and she could swear it made her weak in the knees. “Making women go crazy is my best quality.”
    She smiled at him , but moved out of his warm embrace. She needed to get to work, and she needed to call Detective Moore to bring him the file she had on Joe. She looked at Max, and his beauty still stole her breath. He was wearing a long sleeve button up dark emerald green shirt with black dress pants and a black tie. He had his hair slicked back and it made his green eyes stand out more.
    “I really need to go, I have never been late before.” Thankfully she had what she needed for work in the car. “We’ll talk later,” she said and kissed Ja x’s cheek quickly and moved past him to Max. He lifted his arms welcoming her into a hug, but she shook her head. She knew that if she went into his arms she wouldn’t be leaving his condo that day. She did what she’d done to Jax. She kissed his cheek and moved out his reach before he could wrap his arms around her.
    He raised his eyebrows at her and smiled. “You owe me a kiss.”
    She rolled her eyes and walked past him to the front door. She ’d left her keys on the little table by the door. But as she opened the door and turned to face the twins she realized she couldn’t take her car, it’d been destroyed.
    “Take mine,” Jax said handing her the keys.
    Megan smiled and took the keys. “You can both claim what I owe you later, I really need to go.” She gave them one last smile and walked out of the condo; she closed the door behind her.
    Three hours later, Megan sat in her little office, staring at her computer screen. She called Detective Moore and he told her he would met up with her at her lunch break which was coming up. The good
