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. 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.

My Review:
Honestly, and don't hit me for saying this, I wasn't sure if I really cared about Gareth.  I mean, from all the other books in the series he is such a grumpy ass that I never really liked him that much.  To steal from another author's book (Jay Crownover's Rome), I'd have called him Captain No-Fun.  However, I was still interested in reading his story, and finding out just why he was the way he was.  

Well, let me tell you, Gareth is a different kind of guy than his brothers!  But in this story, I grew to like him and understand him.  While I knew the background of the Harris family from all the other books in the series, getting Gareth's point of view was really eye-opening.  Especially since he was the oldest and had the most knowledge and time with their mother before she died.

And then we have Sloan.  I cannot tell you how much I hate her ex-husband!  He is such a jerk! It totally makes sense why Sloan is the way she is.  Now, when she and Gareth get together for the first time, let's say it is hot!  And sooooooooo different than you'd expect.  Or at least than I expected.  But I love the way it played out.  I love the research that Sloan did, and how what their relationship actually turned out to be. 

Be warned, there is a big shock at the end of this first part of Gareth's story.  I won't tell you what it is.  But I will tell you that I did NOT see it coming!  Not even with what I look back on now and see were clues that the author sprinkled throughout the story early on.  I'm now sitting on the edge of my seat, waiting for the second book so that I can see what is going to happen after that.  I promise you will not be let down with this book.

  1. If a book can make you like a character you didn't before, then it has to go and say that it must be well written! I really like that this one has such a surprise ending as well. I love when you can't see the twist coming at all and then you think back and recognise all the clues dropped :D
