    Payback is live and I'm so so excited for everyone to meet Allie Harris and Roan DeWalt! This was a story I wasn't for sure going to write but when these two blew up in my mind, I basically had to see them through to the end! Payback is a 90,000 word full length novel about a South African striker who plays alongside the infamous Harris brothers. When his teammate's cousin comes to town and propositions him for a one-night-stand, Roan knows it's a bad idea. But that spark between the two of them ...more

    Amy Daws is back with another Harris book… not a brother this time but a cousin! You can’t even imagine how excited I was before reading Payback! I dreamt for another book in the Harris brothers world and she made this wish come true! Thank you Amy ♥

    In true Amy’s style, Roan & Allie’s story caught me right away! There’s not a minute I didn’t want to take the book, keep reading and forget about reality. Roan & Allie are like the yin and the yang. They are quite opp

    It’s always good to be in the Harris world, and Payback was no exception. Alice is the distant Harris cousin who had lived in America for most of her life. She comes across the pond for a family wedding after a bad break up and has a plan to get a little payback. Cue up one Roan DeWalt. Hot South African footballer who she plans to use to show her ex what’s what. Too bad Roan is more than some random hottie to use, and for the next two years both of them ar

    Daws does it for me...every time. I found her not through The Harris Brothers series but through her book, Wait With Me. Loved it totally and then devoured Next In Line when it released. It was after those positive experiences, I found out about those sexy, hot Harris brothers and their family.

    Well, when I had the chance to read Payback, I asked pretty please and was thrilled for the opportunity. This book has it all:

At least not mine so here goes my attempt at a review which will most likely just be a complete fangirl moment. Brace yourselves...

    There's nothing like the feeling of a new book announcement for a series which was technically supposed to be complete. The Harris Brothers series is one of my absolute faves, this family has totally stolen my heart. So when Amy announced that there was going to be more Harris family? Holy moly, I was excited.

    Amy Daws is back with another Harris book - but this one the main character is their female cousin!! If you have never read any of her Harris Brothers books, do not worry, this one can be read as a complete standalone. But you do get glimpses of the Harris brothers, which will just have you wanting to go read their books next.

    The blurb for this book is pretty much all you need to know going into this book. If I tell you any other tidbits of the plot, I would be pretty much surmising t
    Wow 😍😍😍!

    This is the first book I've read from Amy Daws, and I'm pretty amazed. She did a really great job with this book and brought us a well-written story.

    Once you start reading "Payback" you can't put this book down till the end 😉.

    Allie and Roan are so beautiful characters. I fell in love with them from the first second I've started reading the story.

    Their love shows us that nothing in this world can't break true love. Because if you love somebody with your whole heart then you can forgive

    There is no greater reading joy then the joy I find in every Amy Daws book I read, especially when a Harris is involved!

    Roan and Allie are unconventional, crazy, quirky and hilarious! From start to finish I laughed, I cried and a defiantly skipped with joy! Their story sucked me in and didn’t let me go till the end and I am dying for more! I seriously can’t get enough of the Harris clan and my goodness I WANT ANOTHER ONE!

    So, if you haven't read any of Amy's Harris Brother's books (and why the hell wouldn't you?!) then you won't be at all excited to know that this book is the LONG AWAITED cousin Alice's story.

    When Amy announced she was giving Allie a book, I was SO excited. Not only because she teased us with a little preview last year in the KU Korner, and not just because we get taken back to the world full of the Harris brothers, but because we would get more of sexy South African Footballer Roan DeWalt.

    Amy Daws + The Harris family = complete romcom, dramady perfection! I love this family, and I don’t think a day will ever come when that changes. As a result, I never want it to end. EVER.

    Roan DeWalt....swoon. Omg! I love him. His sweet nature, his uncharacteristic good boy athlete persona, the way he wants to take care of his family. THE WAY HE LOVES ALLIE. I’m just here for all of it. Every single delicious bit of this man.

    It was so good being back in the Harris Brother's (and sister) world. I remember Roan from previous books, but this time the spot light was on him and Harris cousin Allie.

    Immediately this book hooked me. From the "warm welcome" Allie received in the beginning to the very awesome end. Once again Amy Daws amazed me with her wonderfully well written characters. Allie and Roan were impossible to not love. I fell in love with these two just as I have with every other character she's ever written. But

    This book started off like a rocket igniting, it was fricking hot but also set off on one hell of a ride. Somewhere along the way I started to get a bit jaded, convinced this was such a predictable trope following a predictable pattern, I wasn’t honestly sure I was going to continue reading on. But I did read on, I was touched by the sincerity of the torment and vindictiveness and support...hell all the emotions. I don’t often cry, but I surly did shed tears, but I also laughed and smiled

    I absolutely loved this one!! Roan is a sexy, flirty alpha footballer and supposed to be a one night stand, a payback... Roan and Allie’s chemistry is scorching hot and instant. Their witty and flirty banter keeps you hooked until the end. I devoured this read and enjoyed everything about it. You will laugh, swoon, and possibly tear up a bit and it’s all so worth it! I highly recommend this must read!

    Move over Harris' boys (not my Clarke man though) because there is another football star headed our way, and he is sure going to give you a run for your money!

    We have quickly met sexy Roan DeWalt in the Surrender/Dominate books, and boy oh boy was I excited when this pretty arrived on my Kindle.

    One sentence summary: After a rough break-up Allie's out for a bit of revenge, too bad she doesn't realize this one night stand will be a whole lot more.

    First thought: I swear to god if my husband doesn't start playing professional soccer...

    Why I read it: Amy Daws is in my top five favorite romance authors! Honestly, I can't be more grateful to be a part of her ARC team. I've been stalking her social media since Challenge was featured on The Story Bites Podcast.

    This book had me hooked from the first page! I’m typically not a fan of time jumps, but I think it works this book.

    1. Roan DeWalt. He is simply fantastic. I love his character so much! I like that he isn’t a player like Tanner and Camden were. He treats Allie like she is a queen, and he was willing to move at her pace in the relationship and comfort her when her doubts would set in. Roan is probably one of my favorite male characters by Amy Daws

    Holy South African hotness! Anyone who has read any of the Harris brothers’ stories can attest to the fact that Amy Daws knows how to write swoon worthy, sexy soccer players with hearts of gold. She doesn’t disappoint with Roan Dewalt - Tanner’s fellow striker who is set up with the Harris cousin Allie. Allie is looking to get her groove back and show her less than impressive ex-boyfriend that she’s over him. What she doesn’t expect is her payback scheme to turn in to anything meaningful.

    One decision changed absolutely everything for Allie. It shouldn’t have been an issue. Right? She was simply moving forward with her life after having her world fallout from underneath her. Payback. She didn’t need them. A one night stand and she would never see him again. The path to hell is paved with good intentions and one decision would change your life forever. She never saw the attraction to Roan coming. He slowly became more than a one night stand with his wicked South African accent and ...more

    There isnt anything I dont love about this book.

    Amy set up an amazing spin off that has the absolute perfect amount of Harris in it but still manages to be it's own story all about Allie and Roan.

    Watching Allie's growth and self discovery is...... epic. She is just so lost and broken at the beginning of the book. So getting to see her rediscover herself and flourish under the Harris family umbrella and Roans blanket of love is pretty damn amazing to witness.

    When Allie Harris catches her boyfriend cheating on her, she decides that having her ex see her moving on with a sexy South African soccer player is the best form of payback (her ex doesn’t need to know it’s just a one-night stand). What she doesn’t expect are the feelings that being with Roan DeWalt elicits in her. He makes h

    The book is about Alice ‘Allie’ Harris, who arrives in London nursing a broken heart after she discovers her long-term boyfriend sleeping with her Stepsister. The whole ordeal has left her feeling pretty vulnerable, and she decides that she needs to get her own ‘Payback’ to show her cheating ex just exactly what he’s missing.

    I love how freaking original this story was! I've read a lot of stories where the main characters get together because of a pre-arranged plan to get back at one of their exes by pretending to be together and sowing seeds of jealousy for whatever reason, i.e. reuniting with the ex or merely pointing out that they've moved on. Here, Allie Harris already has her plan in place, and Roan DeWalt is her unwitting accomplice. The whole video story angle was very i
