Raff (The Vorge Crew, #4)
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, during a trip to his home planet, a tiny human literally falls at his feet. When he learns she’s been forced into slavery, a fierce need to protect the human overcomes him. A feeling that quickly turns into a deep need to keep her forever.

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 feelings as the adult Prix controls his world through fear, intimidation, violence, and illegal commerce. Regardless, Raff's mission is complete and he can leave Gluttren Four forever, never to return as the planet holds no happy memories for him. Lilly is a distraction Raff can't ignore. An Earth female auctioned off to Prix who will use her in one of his brothels. To be used and breeded. Not something Raff will allow. * * * This is the 4th installment in the "The Vorge Crew" that features a character I have been waiting for the most. Raff. To date this has been the meanest badass of the crew. Feared by all as to gain his attention is to invite pain, torture, or worse. He's the boogeyman of people's nightmares. But. Raff is loyal to the Vorge Crew and is as much a friend to them all as anyone in his shoes can be. With the above being said, I really was irritated that the hype for Raff didn't translate into this book. Sure he can fight and sure he has skills with his mercenary killer background but somewhere along the line he's become a pussycat in this story. The storyline has various degrees of action/adventure and adult content romance scenes, but overall was pretty straightforward and superficial. Though this author does provide an enjoyable reading experience for her fans, I wanted more big and bad with sexy time whipped cream on top. The next installment teaser is included at the end of this book which will feature Marrow. Not a character I'm interested knowing more about so don't think I will be continuing with the series.

    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!All Lilly wanted was what her 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!All Lilly wanted was what her parents and grandparents have; true, unabashed love that lasts a lifetime. What did she get instead? Losers who either think her family has money (they run a solar farm), or are just biding their time until the next lonely woman crosses their path. So, Lilly decided to take to the sky, so to speak, and venture out into the great unknown in hopes that one of the men on the crew of the Bax would fall madly in love with her. Yeah, that is so not what happened.Queue Raff. Huge, muscular, highly lethal Raff. Visiting Gluttren 4 for what he hopes is his the last time, Raff is shocked to see a tiny human female drop to the ground at his feet, after having been stunned whilst fighting for what it looks like is her life. He can’t help the protective feelings and urges that flare inside of him when it comes to the female, and immediately decides he must protect her at all costs. Even if it means taking on his former childhood best friend and the entire planet to do so. Getting off of Gluttren 4 proves to be much harder than they both thought.Raff and Lilly are absolutely perfect for each other, as they really do complete one another. Lilly is the one person in all the universe who can soothe his savage beast. And, Raff is the only man for Lilly, who can give her the love and devotion of a lifetime that she so desperately needs (and deserves). Raff by Laurann Dohner is everything! It is sweet, sexy, and oh so romantic (in a wonderfully alpha male way). I definitely recommend Raff, book 4 in Laurann Dohner’s The Vorge Crew Series. In fact, I highly recommend getting the entire The Vorge Crew series by Laurann Dohner! What are you doing still reading this review?

    4.3 starsI 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 admireGreat writing, looking forward to reading the next

    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.

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.

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 caring, loving, sweet and with a wicked sense of humour. Lilly though I felt like her character got bulldozed by Raff. Once she got rescued by him it was like 'I want her I'm going to have her'!. She got no say in the matter and even though he states that hes going to win her over how ever long it takes so as not to scare her off he then goes and does the exact opposite. He literally pounces on her once he gets the chance all within the same day she had been drugged, beaten, stunned and was almost killed. She must have been in shock from her ordeal and to top it off the guy who rescued her whom she just met, who promised her he didn't want anything from her not only kisses her but jumps at the opportunity to get naked and beg her to let him fuck her. Okayyy it felt like maybe she said yes out of kindness that he helped her and took care of her as in a repayment kinda thing that's the vibe I got anyway. It also seems to be the norm for this series for our leading men to talk about having gone to brothels and fucking prostitutes. Soooo not appealing to hear them say that but at least they mention it between themselves and not to their love interests. The same can't be said about this book as Raff goes into great detail to tell Lilly that not only has he fucked prostitutes but that's it's ok because he never let them touch him or got naked with them. He would just open his trousers, bend them over and wear a condom so as not to catch any diseases from them. Holy shit not only was that the most off putting scene ever but I felt really disgusted about his casual mention of it to her and I couldnt understand how Lilly wasn't repulsed by it I sure was. He then proceeds to tell her the next day that hes literally trying to knock her up um TMI Raff are you purposely trying to scare her away. For a guy who supposedly didn't talk he kept word vomiting all over the place. No wonder she reacted badly, after all she did hardly know him. The book was mostly entertaining whilst they were off planet but once they were back on the ship nothing much happens other than her meeting the crew and Raff convincing her they bond. On the last chapter we have an introduction of Cava, Cathians brother who will be joining the crew and is the next book to follow in the series. Their were also sooo many writing errors it was annoying, words misspelled, extra words and words placed in the wrong place in a sentence. Wow the person she pays to proof read her work should definitely give her the money back. Overall I'll still follow the series as I'd like to know what happens with the characters but I'm hoping Mrs Dohner will deal with these issues that are affecting the series.

    2.5 stars 👻 👻 👻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 2.5 stars 👻 👻 👻Errr...

If we talk about Lilly it's the same story, she ended at Raff's feet trying to escape her captors that wanted to prostitute her but after being rescued by Raff she responds to his kiss like nothing happened. Inconsistencies. The story ended up being kind of superficial and too short to develop the characters... and there were many typos.

    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 Wonderful story.

There is a lot of it; and, it is hot, hot, hot. I so worried that there are just a couple more of the crew who need mates and that this space opera series wouldn't last much longer, but we see with this installation what looks like at least a couple more crew who just may be added permanently to The Vorge. As with my last review of York, I cannot wait for the nest in this series!

    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 am also very disappointed by the amount of proof reading errors. I will always forgive a couple in a book but there were multiple in this one. We had “cessation” rather than “succession”, “reveal” rather than “revel”, and multiple extra words in the sentence that didn’t make sense. This does seem unusual for Ms Dohner’s usual lot. But it’s a nice story and well worth a read.

    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.

    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.

    Loved the story. I've been waiting on Raff's story. The reason for the low rating is because these authors want to put out a great book but they don't have a proofreader. I wish they would slow down a little bit and do a better job at either proofreading or get a proofreader.

    The story was great but I feel like these are so short anymore. Also, she needs a better editor because many times I've run into wrong words or what looks to be edited sentences with the wrong tense of verb. Just a pet peeve of mine. Overall love these simple sexy stories.
