Vera and the Vegas V is the perfect book for fans of Pack Darling and Baby + the Late Night Howlers and Lola & the Millioners. This omegaverse story had a very sweet and contemporary vibe that made the whole thing very refreshing and easy to lose yourself into. I couldn’t put this book down and ended up reading it in less than a day. The story follows Vera, a profesional soccer player omega, who joins a new team in Las Vegas, and meets the perfect pack for her along the way. This is a medium-fast burn story, so relationships happen pretty quickly. But it worked because each relationship felt unique and the pacing and development was different for each of them. So it didn’t feel too fast at all, and I found myself caring about the characters and their relationships. The diversity in omegaverse stories is usually excellent but I feel like Vera and the Vegas V took it a step further and gave us new things to enjoy. Especially when it came to Gus, a non-binary Alpha, who was assigned female at birth, but didn’t identify as male or female. Gus was sweet, charming, funny… they were absolutely perfect, and their connection with Vera felt the most real and based on more than just physical attraction. It was such a nice surprise to find out that in this sweetverse, Alphas who are assigned female at birth have a retractable member that comes from the clitoris when they are aroused. I found it fascinating, and reminded me of the female alpha lock from Bad Alpha. One of the things I love the most about omegaverse is how each author creates their own rules, it’s fascinating and you never know which interpretation you’re reading next. It may be weird for some readers, but I personally loved Gus and everything about them. Then we got Orson and Emory. They are an Alpha/Beta MM established couple within the pack. And they were hot af, my friends. Orson with his mustache and motorcycle and big hands… just ugh yes daddy. And Em being described as the most attractive man Vera had ever seen. Yes, thank you. May I get some more of that incredible hot sandwich? I loved the fact that we got a hot nerd in the pack!!! He was good with computers (*tries and fails to make sexy eyebrows at you*), wore thick-rimmed black glasses and had secretly hot abs and the biggest dong and knot in the history of omegaverse. What else can you ask for??? Diego was also Hispanic and he called Vera his amorcito, which was fucking cute. They were really sweet together and their nerd jokes were great. Also, I love my girl Vera, she went for the biggest knot in the pack for her first time. She was a Go Big or Go Home type of girl and I respected that. ✊🏻 Then there’s Sacha. *sighs in horny* Older, Russian, covered in tattoos, with a tragic and mysterious (possibly violent) past. Someone who has his life in order, who has given up on love, who believes doesn't deserve a second chance… I was sold. It’s hard to pick a favorite but I’m pretty sure he was mine, closely seconded by Orson and Gus. Be aware there’s a genius evil cliffhanger at the end and you’ll need the next book more than your next breath but it’ll be amazing and you’ll love every second of it.

They have taken the best things about Omegaverse and said hold my beer! They have busted down walls that I didn’t know needed to be torn down! I loved this book and could not stop reading it! Vera is our FMC who is not happy about being an omega and has pushed down her own walls to become a professional soccer player as an omega. She has an altercation with her coach and chooses to move to Vegas to join their soccer team. It’s like night and day compared to her old team. She is introduced to Gus from the airport. I loved the story of Gus and it was my first time reading about a non-binary character. Getting used to them/they was not as confusing as imagined and the story flowed smoothly. I also was quite surprised that they went there…. Gus was born a female alpha but is now non-binary alpha but has a member that arises when aroused and is used during intercourse for penetration. Very well done with that description and making it make sense to us the readers. Vera is over time introduced to Gus’ pack. She has had horrible experiences with Alphas but the more she is around this pack the more she can see herself being a part of it. We have Orson(Alpha) and Emory(Beta) that are a bonded MM couple, Diego(Alpha), Gus(Alpha) and Sache(Alpha). They all are great characters and bring a lot to this pack. This book will take you on Vera’s journey of her self worth and her becoming a part of a very well diverse pack. She also has to deal with a stalker since arriving in Vegas which will lead us into the next book of this series.

    I WANT to love this. So badly. This book has so much that makes it hugely marketable, especially with fans of Lola/Baby, Pack Darling, Good Girl, and even more of the current RH omegaverse reads that are getting all the buzz. 👍 Alphas who don't let their alpha-ness get in the way of being good people 👍 A wounded FMC who is overcoming trauma to create the life that she deserves 👍 And, what I loved the most, was that the authors were trying to include non-binary representation.

Outside of Suki Williams and Kaye Draper, I feel like RH is still very limited to characters who identify as simply M or F, and I LOVE that this book was trying to break that mold. The bottom line for me is that this is just, right now, not the book for me. It's definitely the book for a lot of people right this very minute, but my own preferences are making it too hard for me to dig in and really get lost in this world. For me, editing quality and writing style are HUGE factors in whether I can get immersed in a book. Editing errors are easier for me to look past because I know not everyone has the contacts or budget to get an editor for their first novel, but the writing style is something I can't just brush aside. There is SO MUCH POTENTIAL in this book, but it needs a workover to get rid of some of the "telling" and make some of the character's actions and emotional reactions smoother. I'm not trying to discourage others from reading it; that's just my personal experience. If the book is ever revised, I would happily be first in line to try to dig back into it! I highly encourage readers to "look inside" so that you can see if more than just the ideas are your kind of read.

    I was so excited when I found out this book featured a nonbinary character! And the reviews had me expecting a lola and the millionares style read. But I think the only connection to LatM was the "sweet" style alphas. The writing style was just really lacking. I would have liked a better/more drawn out scene with the coach at the start, with more back story. but everything just moves so fucking fast, including our introduction to the love interests.

I would have liked a better/more drawn out scene with the coach at the start, with more back story. but everything just moves so fucking fast, including our introduction to the love interests. And our introduction to Gus left a bad taste in my mouth. It started off great though. When they meet, Gus is masc presenting, with a typically male name, so of course our main character would use male pronouns. Gus gently corrects, and explains they swap between masc and fem presenting and go by they/them pronouns. Our main girl apologizes and starts using the correct pronouns. A beautiful interaction right? I was living. It was very well handled...except that after that our main character keeps lamenting about how she misgendered them. Shes beating herself up, and keeps thinking "I can't believe I did that, how awful." She keeps bringing it up, and at the end of the chapter she leaves off with "Its the least I can do after misgendering Gus." Like GURL, move the FUCK on. Not a big issue... but it just really annoyed me. It made me feel like these authors were pandering. The entire situation would have felt normal and like a breath of fresh air If they had just ended the interaction with the apology, and continued with the correct pronouns. But instead, I felt like they slapped a flashing neon sign over her with "I'm an Ally, not transphobic. NOT TRANSPHOBIC" all the while the authors are whispering to you "See how bad she feels? she feels SO bad. shes the best ally that ever allied." Just chill guys. The goal is to normalize, and they for sure overshot. Again, not the worst sin ever, but annoying enough to be worth the rant. The intros to the guys was just boom boom boom, one after the other after the other all in a row. and their all fucking gorgeous of course, and they all instantly get along and are attracted to each other and I just really lost interest after meeting them all. It was so clunky and felt forced/fake. I never really got dragged into the story. I was always hyper aware that I was reading about these characters in a story, instead of being sucked in and experiencing and seeing the world/story. A few examples of scenes that felt clunky and forced: “Seat taken darlin’?” I think my brain fucking gave out cause I reply with “Yeah, this isn’t Forrest Gump.” Smooth Vera, real fucking smooth. I give him a shy smile and he takes his seat next to me while grabbing his stomach with laughter. Was that supposed to be a joke? What does that even mean? why the hell is he belly laughing? his hands are massive. They basically engulf my small hand. You know what they say about men with large hands. Jesus, am I really having sexual thoughts about an Alpha right now? I made a promise to myself to never get involved with an Alpha. It seems like my traitor of a body doesn’t agree. "my traitor body" *Puke* Gurl, its 9% in and she's already second guessing her "fear of alphas" with no reasoning/character development other than "omg hes hawt". “Your dress is absolutely amazing, you’ll have to let me go shopping with you sometime,” he tells me with a look of admiration. I'm instantly interested in befriending this outgoing man. I give him a huge smile. “I would love that. I really don’t have much fashion sense,” I tell him with a slight frown. He scoffs. “Your dress says differently, my gorgeous new friend. She just met this man. He sat down in the lap of someone she was talking to, made out with him, then turned to complement her dress and asks her to go shopping with him. WHAT? insta friends is JUST as bad as insta love. Who talks like that? Who acts like that? Fake made up people, thats who. DNF at 12%

For example, she says she’s scared of alphas, but all of her actions belie that. She falls into the pack so easily, that there’s no real struggle or conflict in the plot. A plot must have a conflict, but here the conflict is supposedly her reticence to be in a pack, but she actually has no issue with it. There’s a lot of telling instead of showing, and the things that are shown are in opposition to the things we’ve been told. Characters swear they’re going to keep their distance but one hour later they’re going at it like bunnies. I think if the author rearranged a few events and tweaked some of the content, it would feel like more than insta-love/lust. I like how the authors tried to be inclusive and diverse, but the speech that Gus gives the FMC just didn’t flow. I don’t know if they poke with people who are non gender to get an idea of how they normally handle these situations, but if not, that might be a good place to start. I’m also not sure how I feel about one of the beta male character. For a guy who’s never been into females to suddenly fall all over her - it kind of makes my nose crinkle. I think the plot picks up toward the end, but I also think the “bad guy” is pretty obvious - but maybe I’m wrong. I also think there should be more about her career as a pro athlete; it’s barely an afterthought. They also missed some opportunities for some inner turmoil/plot conflict that would have been natural with her involved with the owner of the team. In real life, you know someone would have had something to say. I’ll probably read the next one, but I’m hoping the authors take a little more care with the editing and get some of the issues worked out. If you don’t care about any of that and just like sweet omegaverse, then this would be good for you. It does have MM, A nongendered character (born female) with extra attachments, and group times.

    I truly enjoyed Vera and the Vegas V. It's rare in omegaverse to find a pack where everyone actually respects one another and has good relationships. This is SUCH a feel-good read with twists that will keep you on the edge of your toes. I loved how realistic the characters were (#teamorson) but how their relationship as a pack developed so naturally. ALSO can I say how excited I was to see non-binary representation here with correct use of pronouns!?! Heaping five stars from me, great job to the I truly enjoyed Vera and the Vegas V.

Emory (beta) and Orison (alpha) who are bounded. As she’s adjusting to the new area, she finds herself drawn to each of them for various reasons and the from her curiosity to wanting to peruse them is beautiful. There’s knotting, heat, MM, diverse characters and great banter. There is also a stalker/threat subplot that is left on a cliffhanger, but it’s a mild, not so upsetting one. I can’t wait for the next part! Amazing work. 4.75/5⭐️ 3.35/5🌶🔥

But then I discovered Kathryn Moon and her Sweet Omegaverse series. I’ve since discovered I do like the world of omegaverse…when the characters are sweet and loving. Vera and the Vegas V fits into that sweet and loving category. I snapped this one up as soon as I saw it. Vera is an Omega that doesn’t have the best opinion about Alphas (except for her three loving fathers!). She’s a professional soccer player and has just transferred to her new team in Vegas after an incident with her Alpha coach. She meets Gus, a nonbinary member of the team’s PR staff and an Alpha in a pack, and sparks fly between them. She soon meets all the members of the pack (including a sassy, bonded Beta) and almost immediately things start to fall into place. The relationships between Vera and all the pack move at supersonic speeds. I would have preferred a more gradual progression, as I’m missing some character and emotional development. But Omega and Alpha magic (or hormones!) cannot be denied so Vera and the pack quickly form both a sexual and emotional connection. The storyline was well paced and I enjoyed the dialogue/banter a ton. The chemistry and sex scenes were seriously on fire but I enjoyed that the emotional aspect of the relationships was not overlooked. My favorite part might have been how Gus was portrayed. I haven’t read any romance novels in recent memory that featured a nonbinary character, so I really loved the inclusion and how well they were written. A great debut from two new authors and I’m hooked.

    What a sexy, charming addition to the world of Omegaverse! Vera and the Vegas V follows an omega pro soccer player to meet the amazing individuals who will become her new pack. Each member of the pack was well-drawn, although Sorcha was my favorite. Sexy, greying, growling Russians are my thing, apparently? This book was charming and I read it in one day. The cliffhanger wasn't terrible, and so I can still give this one: 10/10 would read the next! I received an ARC for an honest review. What a sexy, charming addition to the world of Omegaverse!

I was a little bit late to this bandwagon but I’m so glad I finally decided to read this book. I found this book to be unique when it comes to the omegaverse universe…I’ve never really read an omegaverse novel where the FMC was a professional soccer player, so I really did find it quite interesting. I give her what I think is a suggestive eyebrow raise but in reality, it might just look like I have something in my eye. This book follows Vera Hastings, a female professional soccer player that is kicked off her original team in Tennessee for accusing the coach of sexual assault. Finally, she is hired by the Las Vegas Mystics, a professional team based out of Las Vegas. This allows her to meet the Mystics PA manager Gus a non-binary individual, I can just say that Vera is immediately taken with them. During a party one night, she meets Sacha a sexy older Russian alpha, Orson a large, muscular yummy tattooed alpha who is bonded to a gorgeous beta male named Emory, and Diego a super cute nerdy alpha. His fingers begin the decline from my collar bone down to the valley between my breasts and I make a low moaning noise. Vera and her soon to be pack ;) go through a heat together…All I can say is that this book is incredibly fun and entertaining and it’s nice to see Vera come out of her shell!

    Overall, well-done book. I love a good omegaverse, and this one was a great way to spend the day. I really enjoyed Vera, she is someone who tells it like it is and the pack dynamics were fun to see. The story could use some smoothing in terms of plot though, more on that in a bit. The characters were lovely, but I think there was a lot of self-disclosure for people who had just met. Meet someone and a few hours later, crying and telling them about some of your traumas seemed a bit much. There wa Overall, well-done book.

Meet someone and a few hours later, crying and telling them about some of your traumas seemed a bit much. There was definitely a lot of spice, and I loved the dynamics with the pack, especially Orson and Emory. I would’ve loved to get more backstory on all of the characters, but especially Vera as the main character. Towards the beginning, it felt very flat, like we don’t see much else but her family history, love for soccer, issues with alphas, and Becca her friend. I hope we get more of the other pack too, sometimes they fade into the background a bit. In terms of plot, it seemed pretty obvious by the end of the book who the “bad guy” is, even though it ended on a cliffhanger. The book was overall good, but definitely could use some smoothing in terms of moving the plot along. There were just some points that didn’t get enough detail, and a lot of “telling” instead of “showing” things. For example, Vera is a soccer player, but we only get glimpses of her after practice but otherwise she could’ve had any job; for someone so passionate about their profession, that didn’t really come across. I’m looking forward to seeing more of the pack in part two, and hopefully it will read a bit smoother because there is so much great potential with this story!

    Loved the LGBTQ and non-binary representation! I would recommend this book for anyone who has been curious, but unsure about reading the omegaverse trope. I would categorize this one as a sweetverse, and unlike most omegaverse books this one had enthusiastic consent when it came to the steam… and let me tell you, the steam did not disappoint. There was positive LBGTQ and non-binary representation in these character, and I. Am. Here. For. It!!!

Vera is an Omega professional soccer player, who has had bad experiences with Alphas for most of her life. and after a misfortunate experience with her old team in traded to The Mystics in Vegas. She meets Gus, the team’s PR, and feels instantly at ease with them. She meets the rest of the Pack: Sasha , a mysterious and sexy older Russian businessman. Orson, a big bear of a man who is has a captivating smile and a sweet heart.Emory, who is mischievous and fun loving. And Diego, the young quiet tech guy. They all start forming individual relationships and things steam up, but everything is not perfect. Vera’s insecurities and past start to wreck havoc on her confidence of her place in the pack, and there’s someone outside of the pack who starts leaving unwanted presents for Vera… This one ends in a cliffhanger and we will have to wait to find out what happens next. I am excited for the second book to find out what happens with Vera and the pack!

    Overall a really strong story Overall I really enjoyed this story. However, two things really confused and bothered me. First with the pronouns for Gus. While I understand the proper pronouns for Gus are they/them or just Gus in many contexts it was indistinguishable between when the author was talking about the singular person or the group. I think if she (the author) instead of using the pronouns so often uses their name more would have made the story flow more. Also I felt that Gus has signifi Overall a really strong story Overall I really enjoyed this story. However, two things really confused and bothered me. First with the pronouns for Gus.

I think if she (the author) instead of using the pronouns so often uses their name more would have made the story flow more. Also I felt that Gus has significantly more pronoun usage then any other character in the story. The other thing I found was in regards to alpha females in this omegaverse. I didnt take a star off for this since everyone is entitled to their own imagination. But, usually when I read omegaverse female alphas lock and there are male omegas. This also allows them to still be fertile. This story sets up all alpha females to be lesbians since Alphas biologically need omegas. So why was Gus shuned from their family for originally identifying as a lesbian? Based on the way alpha females are written I would imagine they would all either be gender fluid or non binary. Maybe that's short sited of me or I'm not seeing the big picture.

    What an awesome debut from Sarah and Ashley! Quick synopsis of the main storyline - Vera is an Omega and a professional soccer player. In their society, Omegas are rarely athletes that play for professional teams (they tend to be less aggressive). Alphas are extremely aggressive towards unbound Omegas. Vera’s lack of bonding leaves her vulnerable to her Alpha coaches advances. She is not here for it and resigns from her team immediately. Through a friend, she is able to find a new team in Vegas.

Vera meets a whole pack of Alphas in Vegas. These Alphas are not like the ones in her past. They are not a typical pack - there is a MM couple and a non-binary Alpha. Vera opens her closed off heart to these Alphas. They soon discover there are threats, besides other Alphas, to her safety. This prompts a rude cliffhanger (yeah I’m looking at you Sarah and Ashley 👀). Overall - this is a great debut. I appreciated the way Sarah and Ashley handled representation and consent in this book. I’m looking forward to seeing where this story goes in the next book even though I’m still mad about that cliffhanger.

I really think fans of Sweetverse will enjoy this one. This first book is an introduction to each character, getting to know them, their behaviours and a bit about their pasts, and seeing how “their little omega” becomes a part of the pre-existing pack, with a little side of mystery stalker/danger from outside of the harem, which feels like it will get more focus in book 2. I absolutely love that there is a non-binary character (part of the pack, not the FMC), I haven’t read a series with a non-binary person before and I loved my introduction to it in this book. Also, Vera’s dads, I love them, they’re mine now.

I honestly started to become a little skeptical about where the story was....but trust me, it is there. This book ends in a cliffhanger, so when you get to the end of the book, you will see what I mean. Our heroine, Vera is young, beautiful, and very insecure Omega. She did not want to present as an Omega. As a child, she became interested in soccer and worked hard to grow and train to be the best on the field. When Vera learns that she is Omega, she then must contend with abuse, attempted sexual assault, and constant Alphahole intrusions into her space. For these reasons, she doesn't trust Alphas and wants nothing to do with a pack. Until she meets her Vegas V. Then, the heat is on!

    Solid 4.5 in my book. This book was a such a sweet entry into the Omegaverse world- even I would dare say into the sweetverse area, even though not in that same world. It was a nice break from the bully/dark scene. If you're looking for a devoted cast of characters devoted to their Omega- and to watch that relationship ensue, then this is the book for you.

It kept this book a feel-good book. I don't want to give too much away. This is the first book for me where one of the established pack was non-binary- it added an interesting layer and dynamic. If you like the book Pack Darling, this book is kind of everything squishy that PD isn't yet. I was kind of waiting for the shoe to drop and then to be frustrated, but was pleasantly surprised that it remained squishy, even when there was some conflict. Sorry, I have to be vague without giving stuff away! Worth a read!

    I absolutely adored this book start to finish. Vera is a smart, strong willed Omega soccer player. She finds herself making a huge career move because of an alpha coach with boundary issues. Little did she know the Omega whose been avoiding alphas and packs for years would find her people in the City of Sin. I love how diverse her pack is. They each bring something special that compliments Vera.

This is my first ever book with non-binary character and I know as a cis woman my opinion is worth a grain of salt but I thought it was handled beautifully. I can’t wait to see more representation like this in the future. I think this would be an amazing first step into omegaverse books if you’ve ever come across them and been a little intimidated this will be perfect introduction. And omegaverse pros you won’t be disappointed. There is enough spice to break any heat, great banter, romance and mystery. It ends on an intense cliffy and I’m so excited I already pre-ordered the next book! This is one of my favorite BookTok finds so far!

    The best thing I can say about this book is that it tried. It really really tried. I think this is a debut effort? In which case, I think the potential is definitely there but not quite achieved in this book. I was pretty thrilled to see nb representation, but the pronoun speech felt off and awkward somehow (also, in general you don't need to include "preferred" when sharing pronouns - your pronouns are your pronouns, end of story). And Vera's whole 'woe is me' schtick after fucking up - I guess The best thing I can say about this book is that it tried. It really really tried. I think this is a debut effort?

And Vera's whole 'woe is me' schtick after fucking up - I guess that's common enough, but how about we normalize *not* doing that? That would be cool. The characterizations of Vera and the gang feel unbalanced and rushed, while the writing style felt stilted and unnatural. There was so much telling and explaining and exposition shoehorned in at the oddest points, it took me right out of the story and I started skipping just to get to the end - only to be cliffhangered. Not that I guess it matters, because I'm pretty sure I know where this is all heading (although I'm prepared to be pleasantly surprised).

    Lovely story I really enjoyed this book! It is a lovely story with sweet characters and a couple of nasty pieces of work that of course spice up the beautiful love story happening. I adore the tasteful and beautifully written non-binary Alpha, Gus and love the representation, it just adds to the story so brilliantly - I was wondering if it would be a bit awkward but it wasn't at all - coz love is love in all its wonderful ways!

I gave it 4 stars because whilst I enjoyed the book tremendously, there was just something about the style particularly in the first half where the conversations and even the thought processes of whoevers POV it was, were just a bit stilted, unnatural? And I felt like the conversation waS happening so we could be told in a very factual way a bit more information about either that persons background /their feelings or the storyline - it was a bit odd and unnatural. But other than these kinda awkward bits, I loved the rest of it!!!!

Each character has their own personalities and their relationships between themselves and Vera progress well. The first half of the book had moments where I wasn't sure I wanted to continue. I couldn't pinpoint exactly what is was, the writing is well done, grammar and editing on point but there was just something 🤷🏻‍♀️ However I promise it gets better! The final half the words flowed better, the relationships began to develop and I became more invested in the storyline. I'm excited to see how this series unfolds!

    Fantastic in the omegaverse world which is explained in the book before you start reading. Vera is being transferred to Vegas after a incident and she finds herself attracted to the alphas here. One of the alphas isn't to keen thinking she's too young. One other is already with a beta and not a lot of omegas are accepting so it's a breath of fresh air to find Vera is different. Could she be their one? Read and find out! I freaking loved the story. No shifting here but a world very different and Fantastic in the omegaverse world which is explained in the book before you start reading.
