Summary

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 who 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 defences are down. 

Surrender is part one of the Final Harris Brother Duet and concludes with Dominate. This duet is a great listen on its own, but to maximize enjoyment, check out the first three brothers books in Challenge, Endurance, and Keeper.

I Want More of Sloan & Gareth!

This was my first Harris Brothers book, and to be honest, I wasn't prepared for how gripping it was going to be! I'm still trying to calm my poor heart! Sloan and Gareth's story starts as friends and develops in such a timely manner, you really get to know them, understand them, and root for them! , Amy Daws has done her due diligence when it comes to the world of English football, and can be writing about any of the top footie players! The plot is well thought out, intriguing and HOT AF! seriously, I don't think there's a rating on the Scoville scale high enough! so you have been warned! I loved the duet narration, making it so much easier to follow, and a bit like a film more than a book! If you are a lover of The Archer's format, this is for you! There are a few dodgy accents in there, but not enough to put me off! Will Watt's voice is lovely, rich and his differentiation makes is easy to follow each character, as is Piper Goodeve! Her voice has a nice tone, making it a joy to hear! No Micky Mouse squeakers here! This book has left me wanting, no NEEDING more of the Harris brothers! I'm new to Amy's work, but I can hand on heart say, I'm now a fan! The book has heart, humour and a love story unlike any other! 5* all the way, now can't wait for the second part!

A must listen

I put off listening to this book for a long time. I didn’t think my emotions could take it. Plus I heard it had a power dynamic where the male gives up the control, and that isn’t my favourite. Add in that it is a duet, and I wasn’t in a rush.
THAT WAS A MISTAKE!
This duet is all the things. I loved it.
The power exchange actually worked perfectly for this couple, and I loved how they explored it. Gareth and Sloan are all the things. Although I wasn’t a fan of all the choices Sloan made, I love that Gareth was steadfast. And she did open herself up to love.
There are characters that will make you want to throw your device, I urge you not to do this. Stay with it, all will be okay.
The scenes between Gareth and his dad are some of the hardest hitting scenes and make the book more beautiful because of it. The entire Harris clan feature in this duet and as always bring so much laughter and family love.

Will Watt was perfection in this story. I thought he delivered in the earlier books, but this blew them out of the park. I loved that Charlotte Cole voiced the Harris bros women as I can’t imagine anyone else doing them justice. Piper Goodeve was great as Sloan, although I will admit to struggling at times, but not frequent enough to discredit the rest of her performance.

DIFFERENT EMOTIONS

Here we have Gareth's story where we here a fair bit rembrence of their past & how much Gareth was there for their mother & there's such deep sadness in him. It's really emotional things his sister & brothers don't know & can't remember anything about her.
And he meets American Sloan who became his stylist. And she was married to a wealthy British man for 6 yrs when she became pregnant, but her 6 yrs of married life is as bad /worse than Gareth's life.
But after a 1 night with Gareth both of their lives changes....

Not a sweet romance

Not my favourite in the series, but still a wonderful read. I do love the Harris brothers, and I’ve been waiting to see what made Gareth tick, and I’ve got to be honest, I wasn’t expecting it to be complete surrender. I love that Sloan eventually finds her release with Gareth, she’s been dealt a s#!tty hand from her ex husband and his mother, and she needs control. Wonderful writing, an unexpected storyline with a couple complete and utter cliffhanger at the end that had me reeling, what the hell is in store for the next instalment? Narration - perfect.

Brilliant!!

As always I absolutely love the audio versions of this series, again the narrators where perfect, the voices well suited to the characters. This book was no different and held my attention right until the end. It was full of emotion and had me fanning myself at times. Gareth Harris has stolen my heart as I knew he would and Sloan is so right for him. I can't wait to hear the next book .

wow amazing audio!

I loved this story Gareth's book was definitely worth the wait, and Will does a another fantastic job as the Voice of the eldest Harris brother. This story had all the feels it was an emotional rollercoaster, Gareth is the most serious brother being the eldest and this story reflects that and WHAT a cliff hanger!

Amy has done her research for this series and it shows in the story all the facts are spot on.

I love that this is a duet it really adds to the authenticity of the story, with the chapters being from both Sloane and Gareth

Packed with emotion as well as laughs!

I didn’t think that this series could get any better, but this duet was simply fantastic! Packed with emotion as well as laughs I honestly believe this is Amy Daws at her very best. I thoroughly enjoyed the dual narration. Easy 5 stars.

OMG... What a roller coaster of feelings !!!

I loved Gareth since book one and now finally I get to have his story and what a story it is and don't get me started on the clifhanger that has me wanting a lot more. This is an amazing story that made me laugh and brought me to tears with all the raw emotion from the characters.
This book is beautifully narrated and the interchange between both narrators is amazing, they take you right in to this amazing world ( and I'm not even a football fan 🙈).
Can hardly wait for the next one 😍

steamy!!!

Wow, to begin with i wasnt sure how i felt about this book. All the audible books i have are all american so hearing a british accent was a shock (funny because i am british.) Once i got into the book it wasnt an issue. Narrators did a really good job! I felt for both characters at times, they havent had it easy. The cliffhanger at the end.. jeeeezzzz didnt see it coming!

Fantastic audio,

This is the first Amy Daws book I’ve just had the pleasure of enjoying.
I’ve just listened to this on audio and it was fabulous I’ve not read the others in the series but I will be going to click these to catch up with the rest of the family.

I swooned laughed & I have to say listening to Gareth struggling with events from he was a little boy floored me, listening to it made it feel so much more real (and Will on the audio for Gareth was brilliant)

Sloan and Gareth’s relationship is complicated what they want and what they need is suppose to separated, friends with benefits but when the lines start to blur and things become clearer, on one side....
it’s time to put the ⚽️ in the other half!

What is more important holding the power and keeping everything in or putting your heart on the line and surrendering?

Just clicked the audio for book 1,
Amy Daws you have a new fan xx

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

So I waited until book 5 was sent to Audible before starting this series and tonight when I finished this book, Audible still hasn't put it up on the website and now I'm going CRAZY!!!! I Need the next book YESTERDAY! OMG this book has a huge cliffy!!

I wasn't sure when this one started if I was going to love it cause i'm not a fan of one of the main aspects of Gareth & Sloan's relationship but let me tell you, Amy Daws wrote it in the best way I've ever read and I ended up loving everything about it. Gareth is a loaner, kinda quiet and has some childhood issues he really needs to get over. Sloan's life is falling apart around her and she needs to be in control of it again. Together these two figure out what each other needs the most and it works for them. The sex scenes in this book are crazy hot which surprised me very much with my normal opinion of this type of relationship. I fell in love with these two very quickly! Again like in all the other book in this series, there are a lot of family moments and I love that all the previous characters continue to have big roles in each book! Now I'm stuck waiting.... and waiting and I might die if Dominate isn't available today!! Seriously I NEED IT NOW!!!!!

The narration was great, I was surprised when I saw a new female narrator until I realized that Sloan is American, then it made perfect sense and Piper Goodeve was an excellent choice!!!

Gareth!!!

I love this series and the Harris family. Gareth’s story was long awaited and I have read it several times now. This was my first experience with the audible version. Will Watt is fantastic, but I struggled with the female narrator in this one. Her voice was almost too robotic, especially during the love scenes.

My Two Pennies

Great narration, the passion was felt through my speakers non stop.
It’s not that often I read a soccer related story but let me tell you that this was so much more then that. Yes we have Gareth, who’s the teams defender and he’s more then popular as well as famous then we have his stylist Sloan who’s been quite the ordeal recently with her family. Seeing this woman take charge is nothing short of sexy and the way that Gareth shows her that there’s nothing wrong with that makes their story that much more intense. Page after page I couldn’t get enough and had to know what would happen next. Great book and highly recommend you grab your copy. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

Wow!

Amazing listen! Full of passion, humor, and drama. I loved Sloan and Gareth’s story. The next part needs to hurry up and get here! Amazing narrators too, they brought the story to vivid life through the duet style of narration, different voices for each character, and so much emotion. An overall amazing listen that I highly recommend. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Love the story

I love the Harris brothers stories. Will and charlotte are fantastic narrators and bring so much depth to the characters. Unfortunately, Piper sounds like a robot while narrating Sloane and it really takes away from the character connection.

Gareth Harris - family rock

When I started this duet I knew I was in for an emotional side. Amy set up Gareth’s arc to be the most heart wrenching but also the most predictable. If you read the rest of the Harris Bros books you know he’s been linked to his ‘stylist’ Sloane previously but always denied anything beyond a completely professional relationship.

We as the readers didn’t know much about Sloane coming into this book so we got a lot of history building for her. She’s (now) a single mom who’s in England because she followed her college beau who knocked her up in the US and married him. NOT the love story she’d have written for herself. She also feels blindsided and completely out of control when the divorce rolls around, being strong armed by her mother in law.

Enter Gareth who has been the rock of the Harris family since his mom died at age 8 (which is was witness to her last breath, SOB 😭) and has had to be in control ever since.

See where this is going? Gareth gives over control to Sloane in the bedroom. Not traditional BDSM but placing your complete trust at their feet and saying ‘I’ll do whatever you ask’

This goes pretty swimmingly until those pesky ‘feelings’ get involved and they want to broach the relationship status question….but before they really can - they’re victims of a break in assault and we GO BLACK! Amy has us at the edge of our seat at the very end.

Audio performance on this were spectacular as they always as. Will Watt being a standout as Gareth as an adult but especially in the flashback scenes with his mom. Piper Goodeve is new to this series as American Sloane and Charolette Cole comes in as all British characters and most importantly Vi

Gimme Gumme!

Ummmmm what!? I need mooooore! Thank goodness I’m reading this when the next book is already out!
The secrets we keep, can sometimes be good. And sometimes they can cause heartache & pain. Sloan’s secret, while completely understandable, almost broke the fierce woman she was becoming. Garreth made her strong just by believing & trusting in her, something that Callum never gave her. But when her secret was revealed, she needed to fight, & he fought for. Garreth was ready to fight, but Sloan’s hesitance almost ruined it all.

These two with their arrangement was just plain hot! I could definitely use more of that. I need the next installment stat!
