Surrender is part one of The Final Harris Brother Duet and concludes with Dominate. The Final Harris Brother Duet reads great as a duo, but to maximize enjoyment, check out the first three brothers’ books in Challenge, Endurance, and Keeper.

Blurb

One night of complete surrender is all it takes.
Gareth Harris is Manchester United’s reclusive star defender. He has control over all aspects of his life. But a lifetime of supporting his siblings and filling in for an emotionally absent father has taken its toll.
Sloan Montgomery is a clothing stylist whose world was turned upside down when she found herself pregnant and moving to Manchester with a man wh

o was never supposed to be her forever. Now recently divorced and struggling with shared custody of her daughter, control is a fleeting concept for this American living in England.
Both Gareth and Sloan are in need of a release. A moment in time where they can forget about their pasts and family pressures…and just…surrender.
No one could predict what happens when both of their defenses are down.


 

I received a copy of  ‘Surrender’ for a honest review – thank you Give Me Book Promotions for the arc. Contain spoilers.

‘Surrender’ was the perfect book to read during the Russia World Cup time. I’m not much of a football fan, but reading Gareth story got me very excited for it. I never thought footballers were sexy, but now I might be inclined to watch a few matches because of him.
I found Amy Daws books on Kindle Unlimited a while ago and I devoured her first three books ‘Challenge’, Endurance’ and ‘keeper’. Only a while ago the RARE19 London line up was announced and I was so excited that she was in it, she’s definitely one of the authors that I’m super excited to meet.
I really don’t want to give many any spoilers because this is one of those books that you need to immerse yourself into to be worth it. The twists in this book changes everything and I don’t think anyone will ever see it coming, and the twists are what makes this book so good. So, I’m going to skip the big spoilers, and just give you just a hint of how this book is like and what I thought about it.
The other three books in the series have had some pretty deep and heavy topics, but none like this one,  Amy Daws goes much deeper into the topics in this book. Perhaps because Gareth story is a duet, and she more freedom to do so, without making the book heavy packed. I really loved that about this duet already, and it made me sad the other three book aren’t like that, even though they are just as great.
Gareth was always just the mysterious big brother in the background who always gave good advice. I never saw what happened in ‘Surrender’ coming at all.
Gareth and Sloan are so hot together, that my brain can’t handle it. The sex scenes are out of this world and fried my brain a little…okay, maybe a lot. Gareth said something that I really loved, that he’s not just one thing, and he isn’t. He’s a mixture of difference sides, and that’s what makes him amazing. I think thanks to Gareth, Sloan is learning how not to be one thing too and that it is a good thing, and I love that they can be that way with each other. Gareth and Sloan are so much more amazing together,as well as separate, than I expected when I first started reading this book. I cannot wait for ‘Dominate’ coming out in August 2nd.
I absolutely loved Sloan,  as an American, she does bring an awesome cultural mix to the story, and the contrast between American and British culture was entertaining at times and brought some comic relief to some of the heavy scenes. Her insistence of being called “Mommy” instead of “Mummy” was the most adorable thing ever.
As a mother she is so strong, she’s went through the most horrible thing a mother could go through, which is her child, Sophia, being sick, and she came out of it much strong than ever, though a little bit broken, I mean every mother would be. I was so happy that Sophia is well, and this is not a book about her being sick, but it’s a book about Sloan learning how to be a mother who’s child was sick but is now a normal little girl. Also that it’s about Sloan learning how to be a divorced parent and having to share that child’s time. I really hate her ex-husband and mother, they are so snobbish I want to strangle them.
I loved seeing the other characters again, baby Rocky is so cute and I loved reading about her with all her uncles, who couldn’t hold off swearing around her.  It was lovely to see all the siblings banding together to force Gareth to open up to them, and having Gareth listen to them. All four siblings are paired off now and now it’s Gareth’s times – Gareth is very quiet about his life in Manchester to his siblings and it seems that in this book he’s allowing his brother’s and sister to get closer to him.
I loved learning more about the Harris brother’s mother and father. I’m not going to say much about that because I think it’s a big spoiler. From the other three books we know that the siblings father has a thing against Manchester United because of something to with their mother, well in this book we find out why and why Gareth has decided to make a life for himself in Manchester and now London, like all his siblings have.
I did say that there’s a twist in this book that I don’t want to spoil, and that’s because it’s big! It had me shouting at my kindle and me desperately looking for me when the book was already over. I can’t wait for people to have read it so I have someone to talk to about it, because it’s been killing the for at least a week now.
‘Dominate is going to be so good! and I’m so glad that I don’t have to wait too long for it. I’m counting the days to August 2nd.
