Publisher's 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.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 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.

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.

I have a few mixed feelings about this book. I loved Gareth. Utterly adore him. I was all for the switch-up in the bedroom & him giving up control. Enjoyed the cameos from old faves. I truly felt what Gareth felt for Sloan, but I also had some issues with her. To me, it came across as her using his desire to surrender as a weapon against him, like she was just getting back at her ex through Gareth. She was catty & downright mean to him sometimes, and I just sort of started hating her. I did try to understand where she was coming from as a single mom in a hard custody agreement, but that’s not an excuse for how she treated Gareth. She was a hypocrite, and he deserved better. I do plan to read their second book, and I’d like to add that this narration was flawless!

Will Watt is great!

He is the best male narrator I've ever heard! All of Amy Daws Harris Brothers books are grest. I can't pick a favorite. I've read and listened to them all befote,am listening to them all again in preparation for reading Sweeper. I finally listened to the London series. I'm glad I did but her writing improved a million percent with this series!

Phenomenal

You don't want to miss out on part 1 of Sloan & Gareth’s story! This book takes you one hell of a heavy rollercoaster ride. This book is full of angst, scorching hot chemistry, humor, lots of steam, and SO. MUCH. PAIN. It’s a beautiful story until it wasn't and I wanted to scream at the author, and then she twisted the knife a little bit further...with that damn mother of all cliffhangers!! 🤬 Thank God I don’t have to wait for the next book to be released...I honestly wouldn’t be able to handle the wait!! Do yourself a favor & read this series. Piper Goodeve, Charlotte Cole and Will Watt do an amazing job portraying the characters, bringing them to life and humanizing them with their emotions, attitude and personality. They do more than giving their characters their voices, they fall into the roles and become the character.

Finally Gareth

Oh the most elusive Harris brother. His story is honestly the most heartbreaking and I loved it so far. It does end in a cliffhanger and narration is done extremely well.

Will Mother F-ing Watt!!

I know my rave reviews of this narrator is getting old. I know my love of him is old. But he is the best. Literally the all time greatest. This was a different turn on the Harris Brothers. Garrett’s story will rip your heart and have you wanting to just hold him.

The love he had for his mother and his entire family makes it where you know that he needs to give up some of that control. He is so wonderfully innocent in some ways.

Sloan is so awesome and tough you can’t imagine how she doesn’t get it. She doesn’t see how incredible she really and truly is.

I can’t wait for more.

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

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

Surrender

Another great addition to the Harris Brothers series, may not be my favourite but I enjoyed it very much.
Excellent narrative by all voice artist, really, really enjoyable to listen.
