Overview

Owned by the Hitman - A Bad Boy Mafia Romance by Alexis Abbott

To be free, she must first be his slave. I know he's trouble. The way he made me scream his name over and over again told me as much. But he's still a monster. A criminal, and something so much worse. So why can't I stop the tingling in my body every time I think of how he touched me? My father made a deal with the mafia, and now I have to pay the price. My only chance for survival is Ivan, the dangerous man I can't get out of my head since our blisteringly hot one-night stand. The cost? My servitude, for one year. What other choice do I have? For the next year, I'm the property of Ivan Dragomirov, Hitman for the Russian Mafia. This novel is a full length romantic suspense novel set in Alexis Abbott's Hitmen Series. It is an inter-connected standalone with no cliffhangers. Explicit language. Safe from cheating.

The story was in turns scary and sweet. I loved how the author made Ivan come to life with his background making him what he became, a hit man. I can't wait to read other books in the series.

The story was interesting, but to me it took several chapters to really get good. After that, it was fine. Not to give away the plot, but I really did not understand the heroine's reaction when she learned some important information. It made no sense. She just took some unknown person's word as truth! Anyway, it had an HEA, though I do feel the ending was rushed a bit.

Take a 1,000 page book, then fast forward, picture stopping at the holiday scenes. That is this book. It beyond fast paced. This book is like reading the cliff notes of a whole book.

Ever since Katy inherited the Amber Room from her father, it has been nothing but trouble, but the night Ivan enters the Club, her life changes inexplicably and so does his. Trying to keep her father’s dream alive is getting more and more arduous, and Katy finds the debts and protection money a continual struggle to find each month. When Katy finally cannot pay her dues to the Mafia, their actions, and what they have in mind for her, frighten her. It has been 3-months since Katy last saw Ivan, but in her moment of need, he comes and rescues her, only there are conditions, Ivan is a hitman; his life had been such that he didn’t have a choice, but during their time together Katy gets to know him better than anyone and knows she belongs to him completely; Ivan has loved Katy from the moment he saw her, but someone else in the Mafia has designs on Katy and will stop at nothing to take her away from Ivan. Framing Ivan for a murder he didn’t do, leaves Katy in a quandary and she doesn’t know where to turn. Ivan has evidence to prove his innocence, but will Katy listen to him and accept him for who he is? This was an intriguing story that I enjoyed reading and would have no hesitation in recommending it. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.

Hopeful And Sigh-Worthy..5stars! It’s been three months since Katy’s laid eyes on Mr. Tall, Dark, and Sexy with the very enticing accent. He walked into her club, strode directly to Katy, and practically seduced her right there in the middle of the dance floor. That one night she allowed herself to enjoy sexual pleasure, a much deserved night off away from the the crushing responsibility of owning a club. Katy can’t forget the one man who exudes power and a commanding presence, the one who owned her for one night. Since the death of her father, Katy runs the club she’s inherited from her dad, Amber Room, barely scraping by to keep it open. Problem is, the club is mafia-owned and she’s come up short on the protection money. The three thugs sent to collect come with a warning threat, and Katy’s scrambling to find every bit of cash from her belongings. Ivan shows up, sexy as ever, and offers her a deal she can’t refuse. Just her luck he happens to be her sex-on-a-stick one night stand, and to her horror, a Russian mafia hitman whose position in the organization is powerful. His deal: be his sex slave for a year. Oh yeah, she’s owned by the hitman for a year in lieu of payoff money to the mob. But how bad can it be when she’s screaming from orgasms, and not from pain of death? And, he offers his hard, muscled body for personal protection. Dayum !! Owned By The Hitman is written in alternating POVs, though most of the narrative is told in Katy’s words. Ms. Abbott does an excellent job of presenting the following months as a series of vignettes they spend together as highlighted on New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day. At first, I was jarred out of the story, thinking I may have missed some pages, because initially I didn’t sense how much time lapsed from the point she accepted the deal and New Year’s Eve. But thinking about it, it actually works very nicely, since Ivan sets up these “surprises dates” you get a sense of who he really is. Ivan is not what he seems. He’s tough and dangerous, but with Katy he is attentive and caring, very much the gentleman. Each date we see the growing attraction between Ivan and Katy changing into something deeper as they learn more about each other. When we get Ivan’s POV it’s when he is on a hit, and surprisingly he describes his disgust for the bad guys. Those chapters I found intriguing because Ivan’s words reveal that he has rules and morals which guide him. Wow, that kind of made him a hero in my eyes. He doesn’t deny the bad stuff he’s done, but he can never share the dark with Katy. For him, Katy is light to his dark, the warmth of home he yearns for, and I think for both, a little less lonesome I really enjoyed this story, it was well thought out, the pacing was perfect, and the engaging narrative grabbed me from the beginning until the end. Katy and Ivan are well developed and believable. A protective alpha male and strong female lead is always a winning combination, and don’t forget the sizzling sex, yes, it’s hot. Enough to satisfy my inner bad girl. And she likes it plenty steamy. There’s twist in the plot line that I did not see coming; and my favorite is the absolutely romantic and sigh-worthy ending. All in all, a very entertaining read and one that I recommend. Great job, Ms. Abbott. I was given a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.

This was a great story! I really enjoyed reading and the characters. Katy is stuck in a bad situation that she is inherited from her father. She is in debt to the Russian Mafia and is stuck paying it from profits of the club. As things slow down at the club a little she can't make the payment and is in a bad situation because one of her debt collectors has a thing for her. She gets a unexpected offer from her one night stand that she has continually thought about from months ago. He's part of the Russian mob as well and says that he will take care of it if she agrees to be his for a year. He gives her a day to think about it. A lot of time is covered/passes in this story and I enjoyed that fact because everything regarding their relationship is more believable for me. Their relationship grows and we get to see that happen. It's not instantaneous love between the two of them but instead it sneaks up on them as they get to know each other. I loved getting to see that happen and getting to know Ivan and Katy the same way. Ivan is very sweet with Katy and gets to show another side of himself. The story has great pacing, it's not too fast and not too slow. It keeps you engaged the entire time. It's very smooth and flows really well. The sex is explicit and often but not overly so. Ivan is very much in charge in the bedroom but that is how Katy likes it. I loved the other characters that we get to know as well. They are all very complete and engaging.

Katy Foss is the owner of the Amber Room in Brighton Beach. She inherited the business, and his debts, from her father after he was murdered. Ivan Dragomirov is a hitman for the Russian mob and he will make an offer Katy may have to accept. They make a deal, Katy will now be Ivan's for the next year, in return he will protect her from the men collecting protection money from her. Ivan has promised Katy that he will find the man responsible for her father's murder, and Katy finds herself falling for the hitman. Sexy main characters, sizzling hot sex, and violence. Fantastic book, I loved it! I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book.

The story is great and the characters are exciting. The story comes together and makes you really want the HEA for our two main characters. If you like your bad boys with a side of overly protective gooey center for that one particular lady, this series is for you. Can't wait for the next.

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Katy and Ivan meet at her club, Amber Room. Katy inherited the club when her father died, as well as his debts. The debts are a lot to handle, and her life begins to revolve around her business. She needs to cut loose and have some fun. Enter Ivan. Things between Katy and Ivan move fast from there and they spend the night together. One HOT, STEAMY night. Soon Katy is at a crossroads. She needs to come up with money to pay her debtors or she will find herself in a very bad predicament. Ivan offers to help but under his rules, his conditions. Ivan is BIG, STRONG and SEXY as sin. He has a commanding presence. Katy gets swept up almost immediately. The two become close, considering their arrangement, and it begins to feel real. But how real can it be? She needs him for protection, it's only an arrangement, right? One letter changes everything Katy wanted to believe. Could Ivan be so cruel to deceive her just to get what he wants? Ivan is a SEXY, HOT HIT MAN with a softer side when it comes to Katy. Katy is blinded by her feelings of being protected and taken care of by him. Oh, there's the sex too! The sex is STEAMING HOT and there's a lot of it in here too ! TOO GOOD ! GREAT CHARACTERS AND A GREAT STORY ! A DEFINITE ONE-CLICK !

Got this as a bonus book with Sold to the Hitman. This book is a keeper. Her father left her indebted to the mob. It will be his pleasure to extract payment. Hers too.
