Publisher's Summary

I'm in deep to the Mafia. My father was the one who made the deal, and when I inherited his club, I also inherited his troubles.

Ivan wants to save me, or so he says. More like he wants me to be his slave for a year. After the one-night stand I had with him, though, would that be so bad? With his impossibly hard body, and the way he always makes me scream....

But he's still a monster. He's a criminal, and something so much worse.

And yet I can't stop the tingling in my body every time I think of how he touched me, and those dark but delicious words rolling off his tongue, tinged with his Russian accent.

He knows what I'll say, even before I do. "I'll take your offer."

Okay. A bit slow.

Not one of my favourite books.

Synopsis: Girl meets boy. They date. Some action happens at the end.

Narration is okay but the accent kept drifting in and out.

Elementary

Any additional comments?

First, let me start with saying that bad boy/mafia/MC romance novels are right up my alley so this piqued my interest. Plus the cover had me drooling. The story left something to be desired though. It wasn't detailed enough for me and I got a little confused with the progression of the relationship between Katie and Ivan. She described him as acting like her boyfriend but those parts weren't written into the story. I also wish there had been more scenes from Ivan's perspective.
I'm not sure how I felt about the narrator's impression of a Russian accent but it was enough to get the job done. It was odd to me that she made Ivan sound so mature but made Katie sound like a bratty 16 year old. I didn't feel that Katie was a fully developed character but neither was Ivan. Not to mention, there is little to no physical description about either character.
I wish this book had more substance, it was descriptive enough and there was no development with the characters. Even the sex scenes weren't enough.
This is probably something that would be better if I had read it on my Kindle Unlimited.

Great Read

Any additional comments?

Owned by the Hitman by Alexis Abbot was a great Read. Ivan is really deep in the Mafia but still wants to save Katy. Katy's body still reacts to him even though she knows he is still a criminal. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher I really enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to read more by Alexis Abbot.

I liked this book. The characters were great. And the story was interesting enough that I finished the book in one setting.

Wicked good!

I volunteered to review this ARC and yo leave an honest review ... honestly, it was awesome! I adored the narrators voice along with the talented accents and just all around feeling she put into the story to really bring it to life.

I enjoy audiobooks to listen to while driving or doing the dreaded housework, listening to the story just lightened the dreaded load.

Great job to Alexis Abbott for creating a wonderful storyline and also for allowing me to read & review

Amazing Narration!

When Katy's father was murdered she returned home from college to resume running the bar however she was unaware that he owed payment to the mafia and they weren't nice when it came to the payments. Ivan is a hitman for the mafia and he steps in when she is unable to make the payments and offers to delay her payments if she becomes his for a year. They become close however not everyone is happy about their relationship and will do whatever is necessary to break them up.

This is the first audible book that I have listened to and let me say that I am hooked. Lauren Sweet did an amazing job with the different voices so there was no confusion about who was talking/thinking. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I would definitely purchase more of her books in the future.

HEATED

Ivan the hitman is out to protect club owner Katie after seeing who were the Mafia's collector & he couldn't see her be threatened in the least if the protection money was late as. The collector would kill without order whilst Ivan 'only' kills when he's told to. What a gentleman. No really even after bribing Katie to be his 'kept woman with benefits' .
Though there's only a couple of areas of Where we see violence, but that was towards the off the book. It was a leisurely story of 2 different sides of a coin getting to know each other, becoming friends I'd say & definitely WITH benefits 😉
And it ends after the extreme with a loving HEA at the end of the year. Bliss
