Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author S. E. Smith brings another action-, adventure-, and suspense-filled story to transport listeners out of this world.

Cosmos Raines is considered one of the most brilliant inventors in the world. A prodigy, he is a self-made billionaire who would rather be in his lab than jet-setting around the world. Things change when his latest experiment literally opens a gateway into a whole new world. Now not only has his best friend and her family moved to a new star system through the gateway he has opened but he finds himself with a warehouse full of alien guests, including one very aggravating female who has turned him inside out.

Terra 'Tag Krell Manok has spent her life in the shadows of her three older brothers. Her home world of Baade is a male-dominated world where females are few in number and protected to the point of captivity. Terra's father is the high chancellor of the Prime and considered the fiercest warrior of their world, next to her brothers. No one defies him and lives. Terra is surprised when her father suddenly sends her through the gateway into hiding to protect her from a clan insisting that she be mated for political purposes. The last thing she expects to find there is her bond mate - in the form of a human male.

Cosmos may not have been expecting to find the woman of his dreams on the other side of the gateway he built, but he knows one thing for sure: No one is going to take her away from him - not the clan who wants to use her nor her father, who thinks all human males are worthless. When she is taken from him, he will use every bit of his intelligence and ingenuity to not only track her down but steal her back. He will prove that a human male can be just as much a warrior as a Prime one, especially when it involves the woman he loves.

Love how this plays out between Cosmo and Terra.

Love how this plays out between Cosmo and Terra. The reality of who and what Cosmo really is comes across well. Especially when he goes into commando mode. BOOK REVIEW They are all great but this one has it all. Oh boy, wonderful to find out Cosmos is more than a genius inventor geek. It was great to find out Cosmos was more than we had been led to believe, not just a genius geek. I have loved him from book one but his story was superb. Terra is the younger sister of the Prime Warrior brothers we have met in the other books of this series. She is a very intelligent woman and has a mind of her own but as a Prime female has been protected from everything. Luckily her brother Mak taught her how to protect herself. She is sent to earth to stay with Cosmos for her protection but it turns out Cosmos is her bond mate. When Terra is taken by her own father Teriff, so she cannot mate with Cosmos and is then endangered, we see a side of Cosmos we never expected. Loved how Terra's mother and Rita2 dealt with Teriff. This was also a very sad story as it had a personal death for Cosmos to deal with and we had to once again deal with the horrible Avilov that Tansy has been after for ages. I have owned this series for ages and love re-reading it.

Cosmos' is the MAN!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would if I knew my friend liked this type of books. However, I would first recommend the stories that came before this one - Tinks, Hannah, and Tansys' is very important to lay the ground work for Cosmos' story.

What did you like best about this story?

Here everyone thought that Cosmos' was a mild mannered geek - totally engrossed in his tech stuff. Who knew that he had a warrior's personality? And how he went after what he wanted - Terra! And I loved Terra - a very strong woman, that had a great brother that taught her how to protect herself.

Have you listened to any of Suzanne Elise Freeman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes and she is very good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Terra got locked away on that awful island prison and she straighten her backbone and plotted on getting out and back to Cosmos'.

Any additional comments?

Again I would like to say how much I love SE Smith's writing skills - it is out of this world awesome.

Premise was there but it just fell flat

I wanted to like this I really did but there are so many plot holes, it's crazy. Unmated women are sent to an island for their safety. Why does the island have to be like a prison and treat the women so badly? They are there for safety, not punishment so why are they stripped of their names, occupation and clans? It makes no sense. Why does Terra's father send her there and deny her mating. He knows that once they have the mark on their hand, they will die if separated but he does it anyway. THIS DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE! If you want to create drama, then don't completely disregard all the world building done in the previous two books. I found for these reasons I just couldn't like this story. Oh - and the grammar. I'm not perfect but really, how many ways can you twist sentences to make them all end with a preposition not to mention split infinitives? I'm not a grammar expert and it made me cringe to hear it so often.

I'm not crazy about this narrator - she's very bland and robotic. Please let Hollie Jackson narrate -she had the skill set for books like this with action, drama and comedy.

Finally!

Finally! I love to read/listen to S.E. Smith books. This is the fourth book in the Cosmos' Gateway series. So far Cosmos and Terra are my favorite in this series. Cosmos loves to invent different things that can help out people. The gateway is his latest invention. Terra is the sister of J'Kar, Borj, and Mak. I absolutely loved Cosmos' Promise. This book is filled with humor, adventure, tragedy, incredible sex and a wonderful love story. Cosmos and Terra are so perfect together. I was dying to see how Cosmos was going to reaction to what Terra's father had done. If you REALLY want to know then I HIGHLY suggest that you get THIS book! Suzanne Elise Freeman did a wonderful job with both Cosmos and Terra. Keep up the awesome work! I can't wait to read/listen to Merrick's story.

Action packed, riveting and super sappy

If you want an action packed romance full of gooey sweet sap, look no further. I was disappointed that the lead female in this story was written to only showcase her heart- with little written to develop the readers understanding of anything else about her. It was hinted that she was curious and scientifically minded, and we know she is a doctor. But little in the story supported these traits. The plot is riveting and exciting, but the book nearly gave me cavities from it’s sweetness. I think if you like sappy romances, this book would be amazing.

Tara and Cosmos

S.E. Smith always keeps my rapt attention. Cosmos is a nice surprise, our very own human warrior to root for. The performance is engaging and exciting, too.

very good, not as good as the first few books

It's a very good book, but not as good as the first few books though. There were a lot of characters, some with similar names, and I thought of taking notes of them to keep them sorted... Loved the first few books and hoping the 5th book is best!

More Adventurous

The narrator does a good job of making you feel like you are there.
Tara is sent from her planet to Earth to live with Cosmos for her protection. The problem is that Tara and Cosmos discovered that they are mates. They both fight it until danger stalks them on earth. When Tara's father comes with warriors to help Cosmos he forbids them from being together. Her father then places her on a prison-like island on their planet. The island is where the females are placed to "protect" them from warriors who will take them against the women's will.
Cosmos must rescue Tara as well as find and fight the evil men that are after him on Earth.
This story is more adventurous than the previous titles in this series. I liked getting to know Cosmos better. Both of them are individuals who care for others.
