Note to Readers: Chamaeleon (Book 3.5 of The Stardust Series) must be read before Vega to fully understand the storyline.
Haley walked away from Knox, Theo, Chase, Jackson, and Liam, believing it was the best thing for everyone. But, when Theo and Knox appear in Portland months later, pleading for her to come home, she can’t find the strength to refuse.
With a radical plan in place, Haley returns to Santa Cruz, more determined than ever to keep Team Jaguar intact. Will her growing connection with each of the guys ultimately lead to happiness, or will it all end in heartbreak?
Vega picks up with Theo and Knox in Portland to get Hailey to come back to Santa Cruz. They offer her something unusual…the chance to date all of them. Hailey reluctantly agrees and the story focuses mostly on her dates with each guy. The dates were awesome and really fun to read.
There is some movement on Hailey’s dad’s case, but its minor. There is also the return of a form main character that causes some trouble. Through all that though, the focus really is on the budding relationships and Hailey’s struggle. She tells 2 friends about her unusual situation. One is supportive and one is totally horrible. Its actually pretty realistic honestly! I was totally surprised at who she had sex with first. I was not expecting it to be View Spoiler »Knox! I thought for sure it would be Chase! They were both virgins so it made sense.]
If you like the slow burn reverse harems, this is a solid pick. There is enough going on in the beginning (drama wise) to make the book feel like its not dragging, then when the relationship picks up, it feels more natural and believeable. Vega is a great combination of secret spies, college romance, and reverse harem!
