Title: Owned by the Hitman
Author: Alexis Abbott
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: January 27, 2016
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Katy has inherited her father's night club after he was killed, and along with it, his debt to the mafia. Despite her best efforts, she can't make this month's payment and she is both scared and angry that she was left in this position. Ivan is a hitman for the mafia and several weeks ago enjoyed a night of passion with Katy. He offers her his protection in exchange for her agreeing to be his for a year.
Ultimately, this is not a hard choice. Sure, Ivan is a killer. But he is also very hot, and very good to Katy. it is much more of a blessing than a curse to be "his", and life for Katy get significantly better when Ivan is in her life. It can be tough to reconcile what he does for a living, but all things considered, it is pretty easy to like Ivan. Katy is also a character who is easy to care about. She tries hard and is good to those around her. She has experienced a lot of tragedy in her life and has not earned the trouble she finds herself stuck in.
This was a pretty quick read, and the steam level is high. I would read more by this author in the future.
