Publisher's Summary

Thrust into a deadly game....

Avery Lennox has been called many names, but bond mate was never one of them. Her position as Chief Security Officer for Cosmos Raines guarantees that her life will never be boring - especially after her genius boss decides to open a portal between Earth and Baade, a world filled with an annoying, male-dominated species called Prime. But after meeting one particular alien, Avery decides to pursue him through the portal. 

The trip to another world was...indescribable, but it’s when she returns home that Avery is in the most danger. Someone else is as fascinated with Core as she is, and believes Avery is the perfect bait. 

From the moment Core Ta’Duran met Avery, he was captivated by the human woman who shields herself with an icy demeanor and a gun. Avery knows he wants a lifetime with her, and even though she is fighting their bond, she still appears on his world with a tantalizing offer: three days together with no questions, no ties, and no regrets. 

When Core follows Avery back to Earth, he discovers a menacing message left for him: agree to be hunted or Avery dies. Can Avery and Core turn the tables on the ruthless killer who wants to display Core as a trophy in his private collection, or will Core lose the most crucial battle of his life?

Another great listen.

I’ve loved this series and really hope there’s more. Tough no nonsense female character that’s been hardened by her past and a soft soul male that’s as deadly as a tiger, they have an instant connection but she is fighting it.
I love the fact that he doesn’t treat her as a helpless warrior and accepts her fighting beside him as they kick butt together.

Such an emotional story in audible.

Such an emotional story in audible. Loved the book but Samantha does a really good job of narrating this story. The intensity of what happens comes across clearly. BOOK REVIEW Another enjoyable read from Ms Smith with an entertaining and riveting plot. Wonderful to have another story in Cosmos’ Gateway series. Great to spend time on Baade and learn more about the planet. Avery is a very emotionally closed off woman and it is hard to warm up to her at first. Yes, her childhood was difficult and unfortunately she ends up with a warped view of her parents love. Some rehashing of scenes from Merrick’s Maiden as there is overlapping in the storylines but from different points of view. The baddies view which was enjoyably different. Loved Core, he was such a careful gentleman with Avery but became the warrior he was when it was needed. Loved the ending. What fun is ahead.

So disappointed...

I was waiting so excitedly for this story to come out. I understand that you have to set up the story. But, for the most part, it was useless information. I love this series and the characters that make up this wonderful world. Fantasy and sexy as sin warriors wanting to find their own bond mates. Core's Attack was such a disappointment. The main H/h were great, and the story inbetween was fantastic, and would have saved this one. But then it ended so abruptly, I felt cheated.

Afraid to admit

I wanted to love this story but I think I just was listening to it in my eagerness to get to Runt's story. The book was good and as always I liked how there is somewhat of an overreaching plot of everyone trying to get bond mates. Avery's back story was good and drew you in immediately. We already saw in the foreshadowing of Merrick's book that it would be either Avery or Runt's story. I think we had to wait anyway since it seems like Runt was a little too young for a bond mate but I am anxious to read her story.

Back to Avery and Core. It was a good listen. Samantha was not a narrator I am used to when listening to Mrs. Smith's books but she did okay. I do find that all of the stories are getting a little formulaic, however, sometimes you need predictability.

Siri???

Did Susan hired Siri to narrate this book? I love this book and I’m disappointed that emotion was absent in this narration.

Hard Time With This

I am having a hard time finishing this book. My main issue is with Avery. She is so focused on not falling in love that she comes off hard and bitter. I feel sorry for Core. He's found his mate but she doesn't believe in the bond (she's seen
many examples on how it is) but ignores it and thinks she can walk away after she gets what she wants.

I have over 2 hours left. If my opinion changes if I ever work up the nerve to finish it, I'll update my review. I am not feeling the urge to finish. So disappointed. I hope Saving Runt is better.

Omg!

Omg! I love reading/listening to S.E. Smith stories. I had the audio version of this book. This is the next book in the Cosmos' Gateway series. This Core and Avery story. Avery is a no nonsense flat out business woman. Core's Attack is a fantastic book! Sexy, suspenseful, and action filled, I could not put this book down! I love the characters, the storyline and the take no prisoners attitude. I foynd that Samantha Cook did a wondeful job with the voices for Core and Avery. Now I can't wait to read Runt and Derik story next. Keep up the amazing job!

Good installment

Solid installment in the Cosmo’s Gateway series. As with all Smith books, there’s some overlap. You’ll get this (another) character’s perspective on an event that happened in a previous book, plus more of their own story and action.
We get to enjoy Avery’s story of why she’s so set against a relationship with Core, and how some things are just meant to be. I actually liked this one better than Merrick’s story - more kick butt action.
We also get the set up for the next story - Saving Runt.
Cook does a decent job of narration.

Loved it

This story was a lot better than I expected it to be. I wish the ending would have resolved Avery's problem with not being able to have children but it was a great story. There were a lot of unexpected surprises in this story.

Out of this world

I love this whole series. The men are somethin else but the women are no joke either. The book is very funny and sexy with out of this world adventures. The computers are something else. LOL.

Holding my breath for the next one!

Love this narrator. I would love to have both a male and female narrator but she does a great job on her own.
Avery fights the mate bond because of what happened with her parents. Some of the men that had Merrik are now coming after Avery. Can she accept Core and his love or is she to ingrained in her ways to accept help or love from anyone?

Fantastic book!

I have read every book in the series and I have enjoyed them all! I enjoyed reading about the new technology that S. E. Smith has developed for the book. I was especially surprised at the ending of this book!!
