One megalomaniac CEO and one strong and feisty "secretary" go head to head, and other body parts

Angie is Summoned by the CEO, megalomaniac and "the devil" Aran Archer. She is not sure why this meeting has been scheduled and she is scared and shaking as she approaches the door to his office on the top floor. Aran owns and built Archer Industries after inheriting the much smaller company from his father. Since then he has been focused on growing the company, becoming the best in their industry and

Archer the CEO spied Angie and it was love at first site. Angie noticed the hot CEO but he was so mysterious she didn't think he would give her a second thought. Boy was she wrong. Archer made his intentions known rather explicitly which scared Angie a little but she couldn't help being drawn to him. Their banter was hilarious and I ABSOLUTELY loved the epilogues. I'm hooked on Ms. Winters short steamy stories and I can't wait to read the next one.

Definitely not a classic romance
I have long hesitated how much stars to rate this romance. The story is definitely torrid, but we cannot speak of tenderness, or construction of feelings because of the way the characters develop this relationship and because of the unexpected side of the character of these characters.
The boss, Aran, looks completely nuts or psychotic because of his approach to his subordinate, Angie. He is egomaniac, arrogant, and applies the definition of caveman to the letter.

Looking for a short, erotic break from “almost” reality? Read this book.
Trigger warning: if you had a boss who came too close to forcing himself on you, beware. Consider that this is meant to be an over-the-top erotic book of FICTION.
Curvy Angie is called to her boss’s office. Why? She has no idea and she is very afraid. It was a funny scene though. Aran Archer is the CEO of his own firm, built up from nothing. He’s arrogant, tough with brutish behavior and known as the devil in black. When

This may have been short but it was hot. The day started with as a nervous Angie walking in the CEOs office following by hot, hot sex & Archer telling her even though they'd never spoke he had loved her since he saw her one month ago when she started at his company. However Angie would not accept how he felt as she didn't feel the same & definately not this soon with somebody she didn't know snything about other than he was hot & they had amazing sex but after taking a month off work ...more

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

Int his book we meet Angela "Angie" and Aran Archer. When Angie gets summoned to the CEO's office she doesn't know what to think. She never imagined him telling her that she was his and that he loved her. With the difference between them she just has trouble believing this isn't all just some kind of sick joke. Archer has been watching Angie for a month now and the more he watches the more he wants this

What would you do when you get a message to say you have a meeting with the company's owner and CEO?? Worry? get nervous? Wonder what you had done wrong??? Well Angie doesn't have a clue as to why she would have a meeting with the Devil himself. Well that's what the staff call Archer. He is a dominate man who knows what he wants and he goes after it!!.
And now it seems he wants Angie. Within minutes of Angie talking to him she thinks he might have gone crazy because

I really enjoyed this story. It was different than what I'm used to with most instalove romances, but it was in interesting difference.

Angie works for Aran Archer's company as an Administrative Assistant. She loves her job. One day she is called into the CEO's office. He tells her to call him Archer. He also tells her that she is his. Angie isn't sure what to believe, but knows that her body is all for believing Archer. Will her mind get on board or will she miss out on love?

I got a real kick

In Summoned by the CEO, Annabelle Winters writes another enjoyable insta-love story. She goes a little further in this one by adding a little more angst and, as always, a little suspense.

Archer is the king of his empire, and he is determined to make Angela his queen. He goes about it in a way that scares the bejeezus out of her and angers her at the same time. Angela is an intelligent woman who knows her mind, that is until she meets Archer. What happens between these two is an HR director's

Megalomaniac CEO archer calls and G for meeting. All of a sudden he’s declaring his love and she was his. Angie is not sure what the hell is going on and is contradicting him and getting under his skin. This was a crazy story. Trying to figure out what he was saying versus her contradiction to what he was saying. She had him so tongue-tied it was actually funny. Short but full of information and a big giant impact. The little bit of a twists and eventually an HEA. Definitely no cliffhanger. ...more

Hot and sweet!
As always Ms. Winters has provided us with another hard-to-put-down read. This time when Angie is summoned to Aran’s office she has no idea what is in store for her. He has had his eye on her for quite a while and has decided that she’ll be his. She is completely unaware of what’s in store for her. The story is cleverly written with a high heat index while at the same time being funny and feel good. The characters are realistic and seem to come alive on each page. You really DON'T

Wow. This is an explosive, relatively quick read that will knock your socks off!

Aran Archer is the devil himself, or that's what he would like you to think. He has locked himself away in his dark tower only to emerge to strike. He is power personified & rules his kingdom with an iron fist.

Angie is a meek administrative assistant that works at Archer Industries. She is happy in her job & does it with a smile on her face.

She gets called into Mr Archers office one day & all hell breaks

Short but emotion and action packed. This is an attraction at first sight novella with a steamy office interlude, a struggle against death and, a rebellion against destiny and power. The controlling and handsome CEO of Archer Industries, Aran Archer, calls administrative assistant Angie into the office in the hopes of claiming her as his.

This was a great book !
Angie loves her job.
She is not sure why she is being summoned to the principal's office.
It seems that the CEO has been in love with Angie since he saw her.
It was love at first sight for Aran.
One look at Angie, and Aran was a goner.
Now, he just have to convince Angie that they are meant to be.

Will Aran and Angie find a happily ever after
This is a quick, steamy, over the top attraction between Aran, CEO and Angie, his employee that you will read in one sitting. You want to hate Aran at first for his seeming arrogance, but his attraction to Angie drives the story. The plot twists when Aran lets Angie go free. The old saying comes to mind, if you love something and set it free; if it comes back, it is yours, if not it was never yours to begin with. What will Angie do? You have to read

Aran Archer is a true Alpha. The CEO .of Archer Industries, he sees what he wants and takes it. He doesn't take no for an answer. Angie is a smart, independent woman who has embraced her curves. An Administration Assistant are Archer Industries who will not be told what to do by anyone that is until the CEO claims her as his own.

The story line was great. I love the characters, they had so much personality.

This novella started off with a super steamy bang (pun intended). And the heat kept rising from there. At one point I wondered if the story was just going to be one long sex-capade, but I was pleasantly surprised. Towards the end of the story, both Angie and Aran go through their own (very brief) but personal journey of growth and find their HEA.

Well Ive got a huge smile on my face.
The outrageous insta-loves that Annabelles gifts the world are one-of-a-kind for sure.
Angie and Archer are explosive with their chemistry. For once, someone finds the insta-love situation to be a bit abnormal, and makes him wait. That was the best part.
I would highly recommend this book.
Happy reading!

This is a fast, hot and way over-the-top read. I liked this book but admit it will not appeal to every reader. I liked Angie and Archer. This book has lots of zany humor that is sure to keep you chuckling to yourself. If you can embrace a fantasy and relish a bit of craziness this book and series are worth checking out. If you want character and relationship development and a strong story line, well, I recommend you look elsewhere. This is my candid, volitional review.

Aran Archer is the CEO and has been in love with Angie since the first time he saw her and he's always got what he wants. Angie loves her job and is a curvy beauty. When she gets called into Archer's office she thinks something bad is about to happen but Archer has other steamy plans. This is a fun, entertaining read with drama, steam and crazy banter and twists that kept me reading the novella. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

Summoned by the CEO

Boy oh boy this CEO was something else. The funniest of hottest part for me is when he made his dick jokes after being with his wife of forty years. It's funny how he still had the dirty video of when he claimed his wife the first time. Aran needed control over everything in his life.

As always this author delivered another short and spicy read. Archie is rich douche of a CEO and and is a strong and likable woman. The chemistry is instant between these two and am glad the Archie turned out to be not such a bad guy. The flow of the storyline flowed smoothly.

Archer was the CEO of his company and had been following Angie through the video feeds. He called her to his office to claim her. Angie didn’t know what to think when Archer was claiming she was his and then took her. When she got the chance to decide, what would her decision be? Work or Archer?

Will she says yes.

All the classic elements from an insta love story. Hot Alpha, curvy woman, instant attraction and a twist in the story. Called to the CEOs office, Angie thinks she is in trouble and being in the same room puts her on a collision course with him. Things get hot and heavy with Mr Archer. A great short read.

Romance novels are her first and truest love, though, and her books feature sheikhs and royals, billionaires and bad boys, rogues and outlaws . . . and real women with real curves. Of course, the stories are fantasy, and there's always a happy ending. Oh, and there's always babies
