Lilly left Earth seeking adventure, and learning about aliens sounded cool. She just didn’t expect to meet any in person—until her ship is attacked by alien pirates. Now she’s meeting plenty of them. Scary ones who want to do very bad things to her.

Fighting for survival since childhood, Raff Vellar is more intimately familiar with knives and bloodshed than women. Then, du

I think Raff has had the most adventurous story of the series and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!

Raff is Cathian's cousin and obviously he is Tryleskian as well. Only as we realise he is not one hundred per cent Tryleskian. Taking a lot from his mother's biological race, his mating process is somehow different and his anatomy is completely different.

Moreover unlikely Cathian's childhood, he did not have an easy life as a kid. That was the reason that he visits G4, an unfriendly dangerous planet
Raff has systematically killed those responsible for his mother's death until there is only one left. Eldet. Vowing never to rest until Eldet is dead, Raff returns to his childhood home world Gluttren Four where his prey has been located.

Life is difficult on Gluttren Four as the strong control the weak with no one stronger than Raff's childhood ally Prix who has taken Raff's kill opportunity away from him, making it his own. Prix had a major role in Eldet's death leaving Raff with mixed feeling

I wanted more of Raff's backstory here!
Still I liked that he got his human mate too!

3 1/2 "Fall at your feet" Stars!

Entertaining, but Lilly contradicted herself. It was as slightly annoying. Raff was a sweetie. Looking forward to the next one. Happy reading!

Raff was always very quiet in previous books. Here, we get to see him open up to Lilly. Very quick insta-love with a strong "need to breed". The Vorge crew seems to be collecting human mates. Curious to see what happens next with Cathian's brothers.

3.5 stars.

Raff is the assassin, unacknowledged cousin to Cathian (book 1), captain of the Vorge. He's back on his home planet G4 looking to find the last man who murdered his mother.

Our heroine Lilly was on a scientific exploration ship that got taken over by pirates and sold into a brothel owned by a crime boss acquaintance of Raff. She was trying to escape the brothel when she was stunned right in front of Raff. Seeing Lilly is human, Raff immediately decided to save her despite having to go

The kindle ebook had way too many typos. I have read all of LD's ebook and audiobooks, several times over and absolutely loved most of them. However, this book must be updated. Using my kindle I felt like I was proofreading the book with the amount of error report I sent.

I have loved this series and once I heard about Raff I was very excited. After seeing so much of his backstory I was left wanting more from this book. As you can see I still am rating this a 4 so not bad by any means but not a 5 star with is what I was sure this would get. I wanted to see more of his rough and tough side. And I wanted to see more of the family dynamic in this book after getting so much build up and story about his horrible family. I do think more will be coming with the family f ...more

WOW! Again, it reminds me of this author's other series, which i miss reading.... especially, a certain aspect of when Raff is highly aroused ;D LOL! Love it.

If you have ever stalked my “Read” list on Goodreads, you would probably come to the conclusion that I am a little bit of obsessed with Laurann Dohner’s writing, given the sheer amount of her books I have and the number of times I have read each one. Well, here we have her latest book in The Vorge Crew series: Raff. I have been on pins and needles waiting for his book, and was absolutely not disappointed. Yet another brilliant book by the one and only Laurann Dohner!

Though I gave the book 3 stars, I was greatly disappointed. Having read the other books, I was highly anticipating Raff’s story. Raff is the silent dangerous one- the ‘loose canon’....the ‘unknown’. In this story, he is suddenly the antithesis. I swear, sometimes he wouldn’t shut ‘out of character’. I believe there was missed opportunity to add an additional dimension to the storyline. After all, one of the reasons for having a “strong silent” type is so the leading lady can scratch at, ...more

I truly enjoyed the Story of Raff and how he met Lilly. I think that the fact that he was by himself allowed him to be more at ease with her, it is like the opinions of all of his crew had him in a box that was hard for him to be gentler.
A feisty heroine that was easy to admire
Great writing, looking forward to reading the next
Loved it a lot

Viking cat Raff.

Ok firstly let me say I'm a huge Laurann Dohner fan but for this series I feel like they've been lacking that book magic Mrs Dohner's famous for. For starters their incredibly short which means you lose the relationship build up between the characters. It becomes an instalove story, another love at first sight and straight to the sack tale. Raff was an interesting character with a horrible past who was not as serious or scary as he liked people to believe, he was actually very ca

Errr... I have to say it was nothing extraordinary but better than other books I've encountered about aliens. It's the first I've read from this series and expected more. It starts with Raff searching for someone who wants to kill for revenge but then Lilly falls at his feet, literally, and he turns into a kitten. Just like that. Though I found it cute sometimes, I know his character wasn't supposed to be cute, at least so soon. If we talk about Lilly it's the same story, she en

Love Raff!

Raff ended up being such a pleasant and lovable surprise! He’s a skilled fighter which is hot! But it was wonderful to see his personality in this book. There were even some funny parts. And it was wonderful how sweetly aggressive he was with Lilly. He saw what he want and he went after it with good intentions, nothing would stand in his way. That was a huge plus! And Lilly isn’t too bad, I’m so glad she didn’t put up to much of a fight about things. I was worried about this one in th

Wonderful story. This quick read is action packed, very romantic and has quite a bit of humor. Before the heroine, Lilly, really knew her hero, Raff, she simply referred to him as 'the crazy hot kisser alien'. I so appreciate the subtle ways that Ms. Dohner includes her humor into some very wild and unique situations. There are a number of very cool gadgets and technologies interwoven into the story which I felt were super interesting.
In this book of The Vorge series the sex is ratchetted up. Th

I have to start this review with the fact that I am a HUGE Laurann Dohner fan. However, I have been a bit disappointed with this series. The books are very short (which I don’t mind at all) and therefore the instalove and instasex is far quicker than I feel is good for the storyline. The human female in this story just didn’t have a second to think about what is going on and if she really wanted this. She’d been injected with god knows what drugs and Raff still went to town.

I LOVE Raff!!

I love this book! I cheered and I cried. Mostly I cried because the description of the heroine was not me...but I did cry! Laurann Dohner is amazing at creating new worlds and character's that sweep you away and infuse themselves into your fantasies... You know what I mean..those really GOOD fantasies.. The ones that draw you in and leave you ACHING for the next book. Yup that's her. So hurry the heck up Laurann!!! I NEED the next book... Oh and while you are at it if you could make

Raff and Lily Vorge #4

I knew that I would like Raff. This is a fun series with terrific characters. Although I really want Marrow to get her HEA, the next book we will get to meet Cavas, one of Cathian's litter mates, and maybe another litter mate. I don't think that Cathian's father realizes just what will happen if he continues to mess with Cathian, Raff and the rest of the Vorge's crew family.
I enjoyed the book, it was short and sweet. I would recommend reading the other books in the series first before this one as the hero of the novel is the brother of the hero in the first book of the series. . The hero is a hot dangerous Killer. When he met the heroine he pretty much instantly fell in love with her and wanted her to be his mate. The conflict essentially huge in the novel, my heart really didn’t race in anticipation. This book was a good filler read.

Raff & Lilly

This another author who I put in my top 10.i love the The Vorge Crew books..the characters are easy to follow and flow from book 1.
Every couple have a individual story,but always full of excitement and love and adventure...can’t wait for the next book in the series...
I can re read theses books time and time again...and always see something new...

I sure wish someone would help her choose better covers. They are just boring and I feel like I’ve seen them before. She never shows their faces. This story was too short. We didn’t get to see RAFF the assassin doing more action and killing. He’s supposed to be a badass. I would have liked to see it.

I was looking forward to Raff’s book. I absolutely love this author but this one fell flat for me. I kept waiting for something to happen - for the H/h to beat the protagonist. It felt more like we only got 1/2 the story. It was in essence a cliff hanger. Still a good book, just a little disappointing. I wanted Raff to have his story.

I can’t believe how much I love this series I am so sad I have to wait who knows how long for the next one and I should have known that she would throw a curveball into the works and add a new character to the lineup but I’m really happy because the series just got bigger❤

If I am being honest, I like this series. The stories are interesting, short, exciting and fun. But my problem is that they do not feel fully fleshed out and there is this juvenile vibe that's a bit offputting for someone who does not like YA books. I don't know if Ms. Dohner is revamping a series she wrote earlier in her career but after Species and Cyborg, this feels so much less.

Another Great book to read!

First of all, I am pretty sure I have read almost all of Laurann's books.
This is another great story not sure how she does it but I am so glad she does. My only problem is that I read them too fast then I have to wait for the next one..... Please don't make us wait too long for the next.
