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.

    "Great Story"

    I received this as an honest review. Alexis Abbott did an amazing job. I have to say she did not make you wait to long before it got hot and steamy. The book will keep you one your seat from being to end. I also think she done well at choosing the narrator. I so enjoyed listening to this audio.

    I can not imagine how Katy felt. She had been in college living it up like most young girls her age when her father was murdered. Now here she is faced with trying to keep her father’s night club up and going and keep his debt collectors at bay. Her dad’s debt collectors were not like a bank or anything thing like that, no they were deadly. Her father owned the mafia. I can not imagine the anger and fear she must of felt. The guys that were assigned to make sure she pays every amount were 3 scum bags that hoped they could take collections another way. These guys make her skin crawl.

    Ivan was this sexy handsome hitman. He checking out Katy. Katy had no idea who he was. Guess he wanted to sample the merchandise so to speak. Katy thought she was just having a one night stand. Now here Ivan was handing her a life line. He was trying to be like a light in the darkness now that she was faced with not being able to pay or is he?

    Katy is still trying to figure out who murdered her father. She wants to see them brought to justice. She is anger with her father leaving her with this mess and robbing her of an education. There is so much to the story that Katy does not know.

    Ivan owned Katy for a year. He is doing his best not to fall for her because he knows she is to good for him. If only she knew the truth of what he really does could she love him? I loved the nickname he gave Katy, mishka (perfect woman). It melted my heart every time he called her that. The thing I loved about Ivan was there was so many layers to him and so that you would not expect.

    Ivan was her savor and her angel at least in her mind. He says he is very bad man. He owns her for a year but she can not help but have feelings for him. She needs to be careful and protect her heart. She is just suppose to be paying a debt. There are things she hears that sends her world a crashing. Can she survive this?

    I hate Konrad. He is a creep and one that you want to reach in the book and punch in the face. Of course I hated Nic and Oskar as well but there were not as creepy as Konrad.

    I am so glad I got the opportunity to listen to this book and look forward to future books by Alexis Abbott.
