"We want you to choose all of us."
Unsure how to react to Knox’s simple but life-changing declaration, Haley focuses all her energy on the guys and her Zenith training, hoping the rest will fall into place. Still, as her love for Knox, Theo, Chase, Liam, and Jackson deepens, she worries their connection won’t be enough.
When an unexpected encounter magnifies her fears, she realizes she'll have to make a choice after all. Will Haley find a way to accept her unconventional relationship with Team Jaguar, or will she risk losing them forever?
Polaris is the final book in the Stardust series and you MUST read in order. So, if you like slow burn, new adult, contemporary reverse harem, I highly suggest this series! Its a great read!
In this last installment, Haley is dating all the guys and trying to get her coursework done for Zenith. Its a busy time. She really struggles with dating all the guys because it feels selfish to her. She also struggles with why they are all okay with it (because she just can’t believe all 5 of them are going to be happy sharing one girl ). Finally, she struggles with what others will say about their relationship. When some coworkers find out she is dating two of the guys, the gossip mill goes nuts and Haley is devastated. She starts to pull away again. But, before they can work through it, Haley has to go on a super special assignment to complete some of her Zenith training.
The first half of the book is really focused on the unconventional relationship and how Haley feels. The second half of the book is focused on Zenith, DuBois, and the story arc that has gotten Haley to where she is now. I was totally surprised by the events that led to taking down DuBois! It wasn’t at all what I expected, but I thought it was really interesting. Certainly, the topic tackled is a real problem in modern society.
I think Polaris wrapped up this series perfectly. You get to see Haley’s relationship develop, some personal growth, and accomplishments in her career. Stardust is a great series for new to reverse harem readers because it is a very slow burn and its contemporary, so people who don’t like PNR will find this more appealing.
