My Thoughts

Dominate is book two in Gareth and Sloan's story. My review of Surrender, book one, can be found here.

DOMINATE by Amy Daws is the conclusion to not only Gareth and Sloan’s story, it’s also the concluding book to the Harris family series. I enjoyed reading Daws’ writing and I think her ‘voice’ is getting stronger with each book she writes.

I enjoyed the updates we get about the whole family. It’s no secret that while the siblings get on, relations are beyond strained with their father. In Dominate, we get to see them communicating, acknowledging past wrongs and moving forward stronger than they ever were. There’s even a wake for their deceased mother, and frankly you’d have to have a heart of stone to not be moved by these scenes.

I enjoyed the continuation of Gareth and Sloan’s story. There are still a few relationship hiccups along the way as each of them works through personal issues but it’s a journey of individual growth that ultimately makes them a stronger couple. Daws’ writing paints a wonderful picture of Gareth and Sloan’s love, hope and joy in their relationship. Even when things are not going to plan, the emotion felt by them, especially Gareth, was moving to read.

As much as I liked this book, I do feel there are parts that did not work and they revolve around Gareth and Sloan’s book being a duet. In brief, I do not think a duet was necessary and the overall story is a tad weaker because of this format. The attack on Gareth and Sloan that provided the cliffhanger ending of Surrender felt contrived. In Dominate, the investigation and revelation of the culprits is rarely mentioned and it peters out as the book progresses. Further, the sub/dom preferences of Gareth and Sloan that were hyped up in Surrender rarely made a blip in this book. Upon reflection, it seems this part of the story was dialed up in Surrender for the shock value more than anything, because it became clear in Dominate that this preference is just a role they sometimes play together. It wasn’t such a big deal in the end.


I haven’t read all the Harris Brothers books but I think that fans will appreciate the send off the author has written for the family.
