Emmi is the mob boss’ youngest daughter and Digger is a hitman that’s been in love with her since they were kids. She’s refused his advances every time, uncomfortable with his job. When her twelve year relationship ends and she kisses Digger under the mistletoe it opens her eyes … Oh my God, Emmi, yes! I love her attitude, I love her spunk, I love her personality. She is an instant like for me. She’s heartbroken about being dumped by her long-time boyfriend but that didn’t get rid of her steel spine. Digger, ah, Digger. Seriously. Sexy, over the moon for Emmi and refuses to give her up. He’s a contract killer and I am totally on the same page as Emmi with that. Unhappy but damn it, Digger was hard to dislike except the hard-on for killing people. That is creepy. The heat is intense but scene after scene after scene of sex is a bit overkill. By the third or is it fourth sex scene in a row I started skimming them. It is just too much sex after sex after sex. Space those out, pretty please! The story is really fantastic, I wish the author cut some of the repetitive sex scenes out but other than that this is a brilliant start to a new series! The family dynamic is seriously complicated and it feels so real that it completely sucked me in.
Unlicensed to Kill, 1
Daniel Basile, known to everyone as Digger, has loved Emmi LoPresti from afar most of his adult life. She’s the youngest daughter of Mob boss Tony LoPresti, for whom Digger has done extensive work. But Emmi wants nothing to do with him because he’s a contract killer. When her long time boyfriend moves across the country without her, ending their relationship, Digger sees his chance. But Emmi is no easy conquest.
During a snowstorm shortly after the holidays, Digger is at the LoPresti home for dinner with Emmi’s family. He wastes no time in letting her know he hasn’t given up on possessing her, but she tells him in no uncertain terms nothing will ever happen between them.
Until he kisses her later that night under the mistletoe in the upstairs hallway. But is this only sex? Or can the woman of his unending desires learn to love him?
Be Warned: anal sex, spanking
Digger had never been this aroused. His dream woman … his all-consuming passion for years was pressed up against a door, kissing him like she was out of her mind with the need to fuck. He couldn’t think. He could hardly fucking breathe.
He trailed his tongue down her neck, following that with moving his hands slowly down her arms and across her breasts. The loud moan escaping his lips couldn’t be helped. “Do you have any idea how long I’ve wanted to touch you?”
She shook her head, her beautiful dark eyes filled with lust. He’d been waiting a long time for that, too. To see her look at him that way. It was almost too much to handle. “All my life, Emmi.”
Digger massaged her breasts through the sweater, watching her face the entire time. Any sign of going too far, too fast, and he’d back off. As much as he wanted to possess her, he would not fuck this up. If he did, he wasn’t certain when or if he’d get a second chance. “I need to see these.”
When she didn’t flinch or protest, he brushed his hands down to the hem of her sweater and tugged it over her head. Smiling at the pretty lace bra, he eased the straps down over her shoulders, slowly.
“Digger, please … for the love of God.”
Dare he believe his ears? Was she impatient at how carefully he was proceeding? He cupped her breasts again through the lace. “For the love of God, what?”
“Fuck me. Please!”
He nearly came in his pants. Digger’s mind went blank except for unbridled lust. He turned her around and pulled down her jeans, taking her panties with them. The need to be inside her outweighed all rational thought.
“Condom,” she said, her voice breathless. “You probably want to use one, right?”
What? “Fuck.” He had to take several deep inhales before his brain would work. “Do you have any in here?”
Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! He hadn’t brought any with him. Why the fuck would he, after all? This was completely unexpected.
“I’m on the pill. And I’m clean. Shit. I’ve never had sex with anyone but Sam, and I know one hundred percent he never cheated on me.”
He’d had a feeling that was the case, but hadn’t wanted to embarrass her by asking. “Okay. Are you all right with me not using one? Because I can’t wait any longer.” He had to have her, right fucking now, and he suspected the information about Sam being the only man she’d ever fucked had slipped out only because of the circumstances.
“Yes. I’m okay with it if you are.”
Fuck it. He had no reason to think she was lying to him about being on the pill, or about not having any social diseases. “I am.”
Every fantasy he’d ever had surrounding this woman was about to come true. When he brushed his hands over her upper thighs, Emmi cried out in pleasure. It was too much. His self-control was fucking gone. “Bend over.”
As she did, shivers ran down his spine. He’d bet good money she’d never done anything this raw or spontaneous with Sam. He removed her bra and cupped her bare tits from behind, eliciting more cries and moans from her. His pulse raced, and sweat broke out along his hairline. “Oh my God, these are fucking incredible.”
“That feels so good!”
Digger massaged the mounds of flesh he’d longed to touch for years until he couldn’t stand it any longer. He pulled down his zipper and freed his dick before sliding two fingers into her pussy. The velvety softness was slippery as hell.
“Oh fuck. You’re so goddamn wet!”
“As if I can help that.”
He’d done that to her. Him. Daniel Basile. No one else. She did want him. His body, at least. And today he’d take that because the rest would come in time.
Digger gripped her pussy from behind and thumbed her clit, nearly coming on the floor when she moaned loudly and pushed back against him. He’d found the right spot so fucking easily. He massaged her clit for a few seconds, nuzzling her neck, but he was losing it quickly. He had to be inside her.
When he slid his dick into her pussy, she cried out and replanted her hands on the door. “Oh my God, Emmi. That feels so fucking good!”
“Good” was not an adequate word for the sensation of finally being inside his Emmi. Digger couldn’t imagine anything more perfect.
“Yes,” she whispered. “It’s exquisite.”
Exquisite. Digger took that word in and savored it as he held onto her right hip with one hand. He kept up the pressure on her clit while he fucked her, slowly at first, letting her get used to his length and girth. He had no clue how big Sam’s dick was, but he doubted they’d had an adventurous or exciting sex life. Oh, the things he would teach his Emmi!
Bloodlust is the first book in Ravenna Tate’s new series Unlicensed to Kill, an offshoot of her Demons on Wheels MC series. Our unlikely hero is Digger, an assassin who works for, and is the nephew of mob boss Donnie from the Demons series. Digger finds himself in love with the daughter of Anthony LoPresti, another boss that he’s been doing work for. Emmi is newly single thanks to her boyfriend moving across the country, and though she’s attracted to Digger, she hates that he’s a contract killer. But Emmi’s parents like to play matchmaker, and one night at dinner, Digger kisses Emmi under the mistletoe. Can he show Emmi he’s more than his job? I just loved Digger when I first read about him, and I’m so happy to see that he’s gotten his HEA with Emmi. So far, this series rocks!
This story is very different from the ones in the Demons on Wheels MC books, although Daniel Basile, AKA Digger, was introduced to us in book 6 of the series. Digger has been in love with Emmi since she was young, but he would never act on it. He never felt that he was worthy- after all, he was an assassin and she was the daughter of a mob boss and she was doing everything to get away from the lifestyle- including going to law school. When Emmi’s longtime boyfriend dumps her to go live across the country, Digger sees his only chance to get together with her. Emmi sees Digger as attractive, but she could not reconcile his occupation. This story is about a man who must show the woman he loves that he is just not the sum of what he does, but that he can be so much more than that. He gets his chance to start during a snowstorm which snows him in Emmi and her parents house. He’s got to show her it is not just the sex, that it is forever. It was a great journey to take with this book. I am totally intrigued by this new series and can’t wait for the next book.
As the youngest daughter of Mob boss Tony LoPresti, Emmi's been surrounded by wealth and privilege her entire life. But she's absolutely certain of one thing. She wants nothing to do with her family's business. Becoming a legitimate lawyer is her driving ambition. Her relationship with Sam Fargate, a wannabe musician, drives a further wedge between her and her family. While Emmi's loved Sam for over a decade, his career has always taken precedence. When fate hands Sam an opportunity in California, he can't say no. He demands that Emmi come with him. But Emmi's worked too hard to give up everything for someone else's dream. When Sam leaves, she's heartbroken. Taking a break from law school, she returns home, only to find Daniel "Digger" Bastile waiting. Digger's loved Emmi his entire life. He's always been absolutely certain Emmi will be his one day. But Emmi wants nothing to do with Digger. As one of her father's enforcers, Digger is everything Emmi despises. Getting involved with a Mob enforcer? NOT happening! When a blizzard traps Emmi and Digger at her parents' home, is this finally Digger's chance? There's certainly an physical attraction between the two. A chance encounter under a piece of mistletoe may just be the opening Digger's waited for. But for Emmi, it can't be more than lust, right? As Emmi seems to thaw against the heat of Digger's passion, the thin ice between them more and more dangerous. When Sam returns, Emmi's more confused than ever. Does she want Sam back? Is the attraction for Digger something she can deny? When the dust settles after the showdown between Sam and Emmi, Digger may no longer be Emmi's problem. The question is, what does she really want? I truly didn't know what to expect from this story as it's an entirely new direction for Ms. Tate. Emmi's a strong-willed, independent woman who believes she knows exactly what she wants. But does she truly know herself? Digger's always been absolutely certain of who and what he is. And he makes no apologies for himself. Digger's certainty that Emmi belongs to him pushes every button Emmi has...in the wrong way. These two have been at cross purposes for most of their lives. But Digger's confidence and Emmi's stubborn refusal to acknowledge anything but what she believes to be the truth are the driving forces behind this story. Digger's dominant without being arrogant. He's stubborn and absolutely convinced he's right. Emmi's just as confident, equally stubborn, and absolutely certain she knows what's best. It's this conflict that's the driving force behind this story. Ms. Tate knows exactly how to draw her readers into the worlds she creates. She's very obviously done her research into the lifestyle of these characters, and that's very obvious. The tension, uncertainty, and even hope Ms. Tate's creates were totally unexpected. If you enjoy erotic romance with a touch of the mafia world thrown in, you'll certainly love this book! Ravenna Tate excels at everything she writes, and she's done an excellent job! One final note. Be an informed reader! This is an ADULT book. It contains explicit language and sexual scenes. If you don't enjoy this genre, this may not be the book for you. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. Use these resources. DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. It's not fair to the author! She works hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to a book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice. Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!

Emmi finally has had enough of her longtime boyfriend and goes back home. Digger, who works for her father, has always loved Emmi and now that she is back, he plans to let her finally know how he really feels. THe question is, will she want anything to do with him? She doesn't want to admit to anyone, especially herself, that she has feelings for him that are more than just being friends. Will she let herself get to know him better and let him into her heart? I loved this and am thrilled that Digger has his story. Now I need to the next book in this series!
Emmi LoPresti has just wasted 12 years of her life on an immature musician and has no desire to have any emotional involvements any time soon. She just wants to finish law school and live her life. Too bad she underestimated Daniel "Digger" Basile, he's known for a long time he wanted Emmi as his. He shows her in many ways, big and small how important she is to him, he refuses to just let it be the sex!!! But oh wow, is it sexy! I really got to love Digger, which is very weird since he's a favorite contract killer for Emmi's Mob Boss father!!! Can Emmi deal with what Digger does vs who he is? And what happens when she's forced to make a choice? I was so glad to get Diggers story, he just wants to love Emmi and let her do what makes her happy!!!!
Emmi LoPresti never imaged she'd be here, but here she is back in her parent's house, taking a semester off from school, and healing a broken heart. She only wants time alone, but her meddling family have other plans in mind for her. When Daniel "Digger" Basile heard the news of Emmi's break-up, to say he was elated would be an understatement. Now he'll do everything he can to prove to her just how perfect they can be together. Emmi can't deny her attraction to Digger, but it's his "career" that has her pushing him away. Is there anything Digger can do to help Emmi get over his job or will it be too much to over come? Bloodlust is a thrilling, exciting, sexy read that entertains the reader from start to finish. I love Digger's determination to make Emmi his even waiting years to finally get his chance. He may work "outside" the law, but that's not what defines him. He's got a big heart, appreciates the little things, and very down to earth. Emmi is fiesty little thing you can't help but fall in love with. She's smart, witty, and sexy. I adore how she doesn't immediately fall for Digger but takes the time to get to know him inside and out. And she falls she all in. And when the sexy time gets starts it ignites into an inferno that can't be put out. Hot! Hot! Hot! I really enjoyed Bloodlust and couldn't put it down. It's has everything I've come to expect from Ravenna.. witty banter, sizzling storyline, a seductive hero, a saucy heroine, and an all encompassing romance.
