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."

    "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.

    "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.

    "Great mafia romance!"
    What did you love best about Owned by the Hitman?

    I loved the whole story line Katy owning her own club meeting Ian and all the drama in between. The suspense and shocking details with it all


    What other book might you compare Owned by the Hitman to and why?

    Hmm I really don't think I could compare it. It reminds me of mafia movies though


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Two parts the minute Katy met Ian and the ending listen and you will understand why sigh


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No I didnt cry, I laughed at parts and sighed and had happy face at the end!


    Any additional comments?

    Great Mafia/hitman romance that keeps you on the edge till the end.

    "Hot Hitman to save the day"

    I loved listening to this story. Alexis has a wonderful way of writing that just makes you want more and that's from the very beginning. Lauren did a great job of giving voices to Ivan and Katy. I'm a bit spoiled by the sound of Tracy Marks voice when she gives a Russian accent. BUUUTTT I may be working on getting spoiled y Lauren too. The sweet romance and hard edges to Ivan just made this story perfect. I can't wait to continue on with more of Alexis's works.

    "Amazing Performance!!!"

    So, reading this story was one thing, but listening to this bargain had completely blown the story away!!! The narrator's ability to switch from a Brighton Beach female to a more masculine Russian accent is incredible and amazing. If you haven't read this series yet, you're in for a total treat with this narration.

    "I loved this book!"

    The Mafia genre has been a favorite of mine. I read this book before I listened to it. I love the writing style of the author and was greatly impressed by Lauren Sweet as narrator. She did an excellent job with the dual POV and their accents. My review is not a synopsis, but rather my opinion of it. This book is a standalone listen, yet part of a series. The characters in this series are not connected, just titles have "hitman". I really enjoyed this listen. This audiobook is worth listening to more than once, and I can easily listen to it all at once.
