Surrender (Harris Brothers #4) - Amy Daws
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...
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. 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.
I have to say that I wasn't sure what to think. While I love Gareth and Sloan, their dynamics were weird for me in the beginning.
The writing as easy to get into (although I do sometimes have trouble with the English words, but luckily Amy Daws manages easily to make you understand what people talk about) and it was a fast read even while it wasn't a short book. I haven't read the ones before and while I'll definitely pick them all up, I can't say that I felt as if I was missing out. Granted, you can't help but fall in love with the Harris-brothers, but again, Book one of the duet was perfectly fine to get into.
For a long time I was sure I'd have to rate this as an okay read, but toward the end it got much better again. Gareth being Gareth was just too fucking sexy.
What I do have to give the author props for are those scenes where the strong, handsome man surrenders all control to Sloan. The way they are described you can see him kneeling right there. Holy shit, well done on those scenes. Seriously.
As it is now, I'm ready for book two. 😏
