I really liked the idea of what these 4 women are building, how they have few cases and help women who really need help. I wasn't too sure of their client, Loren at the start, but as things went on she was a good one. I liked how they all helped Loren get out of her marriage and screw over her husband instead of what he had planned for Loren.

What really didn't work for me was the relationship between Adeline and Riley. Didn't see how both of them would pine at the end because it never seemed to

This is a new series and runs alongside the Iron Orchids and you get to see a cameo from a couple of our favourite ladies. Danielle Norman has once again given us a group of badass women that you will become addicted to.

I loved all the ladies in the Iron Ladies, Adeline, Sunday, Melanie and Olivia. They had their own different quirks and skills that made each of them endearing and addictive. I will be honest though I took longer to relate to Adeline. She toughest of them with walls up around he

Danielle Norman never disappoints when she releases a new book and I'm really, really digging these strong, resilient ladies and stony guys she's been writing lately. I've got a few books under my belt with this author and she gets better and better every single time.

Roadster is her latest standalone and so so good y'all. Sexy. Sweet. Suspenseful. Unforgettable in a whole lotta ways. Danielle delivers another book that I just couldn't put down until the pages quit turning. And Riley and

I'm going to be shut the front door honest with y'all. Tough as nails women scare the crap out of me. I used to tell my husband any woman who has a shoulder tattoo could probably make me pee my pants just by looking at me. I'm a certified wuss. So reading a story about 4 tough as nails women had me both intrigued and terrified. However, with that being said. I will say this. Never judge a book by it's cover/synopsis alone. Because Roaster is so much more than it seems.

This is a new saga, Iron Ladies, and is situated in the same universe as Iron Orchids and I must say that it was so good. I even dare to say that this is my favorite book to date of Danielle, I feel goosebumps just thinking about it!

On one side we have Adeline, she had it rough and after her rehab, she decides to help women who don't have a voice or forgot to use it, and that's how the Iron Ladies were born. The story starts with a new client prospect, Loren who happens to be the wife of the wel

Let me introduce you to The Iron Ladies. They are 4 strong women who have been burned by men and want to help other women who have gone through the same things. They seek out the cheaters and bring them to justice in a civil way. They are a secret group who pose as just regular business women. But in reality they are more like spies. And I personally think they should be the bad ass women's club because that's what they are. This book is kicking off this series and focuses on Adeline. She is a r ...more

I was pulled right into this story. The story has secrets, passion, love, and heartbreak.

This is Addy and Riley’s story. Addy belongs to a sacred code of a whisper network of woman. They help out woman. She is part of the Iron Ladies. You get to meet a few in this story and learn about what they do. Addy is done with men. She does not trust them as they destroy lives and break hearts. But Riley is set to prove her wrong. He wants her but not to break her heart he wants to own it and make

I am new to Ms. Norman but I love her. I like her straight forward style. If you are easily offended by foul language stay clear but as it is part of everyday life, I see it as fine.

Even though I had not yet read the earlier books in the Iron Ladies Series, I was able to fully enjoy this book as it is a perfect stand-alone. Yes, I believe I would have had more insight into the Iron Ladies had I read the earlier books but Ms. Norman did an excellent job explaining them enough to understand and en

This is the first book I've read by Danielle Norman and I really liked it. I love when a book has strong female leads. But they have their vulnerabilities that they keep hidden until that perfect partner comes along to share everything with. I also love that these women are going after men who are in the wrong and making them pay. And helping the women get justice and also back to the women they were. To see their worth and their strength.  All about women power,  women helping women.  Only if i ...more

I have come to look forward to whatever this author brings to the table and eagerly anticipate her next story. This is a new series that all holds true to what Danielle Norman values most, strong independent kick ass as women. All of the characters are well developed and had their own defined personalities. I loved Ripley and Adeline's story so much. The tough as nails women with a beaten down past and the guy who proves he's worth her time and devotion. A definite page turner! Can't wait to see ...more

A great addition to the Iron Orchid series. I totally loved it. Has a grittiness that is often missing from a females perspective, it grips your attention from the first page to the last. It gives you a glimpse into the male orientated world. It

Adeline is so badass.

Adenine and Riley didn’t start off on the right foot, but there is definitely some attraction. The iron ladies were helping his sister Loren. Addison has some love and trust issues with men. Can Riley who is a good guy break through to her. Great characters and storyline. Highly recommended

These 4 women are FIERCE and I loved Adeline's story! This was a great read without the frills and thrills and just told in a way that you feel as if you are sitting right there with the characters. If you like your romances with awesome women heroines, sexy men, great chemistry, intriguing story, and a splash of humor, Getting Even is a great read for you! ...more

Adeline Morgan doesn’t do love or relationships. Instead, she and her group of friends, The Iron Ladies, are the people women in horrible relationships turn to when they have no other way of getting out. With every case she works on, she becomes more and more jaded. She doesn’t believe in good guys, until one man is determined to prove her wrong.

Riley Thomas will do anything to support his sister escape her cheating, stealing, verbally abusive no good husband . . . who just happens to be the may

Roadster shows right from the start just how powerful Danielle Norman’s writing is. With a prologue that not only grips you, pulling you into the story, but also moves you. You know it’s going to be an incredible ride when a prologue gives you chills from how magnificent it is! Right from the start you know there’s no damsel in distress in Roadster. Adeline shows just how strong and bada*$ she is immediately.

The unusual story-line caught my attention and so did the stunning eBook cover.
I liked this book...but. I know it's an adult story but does it really need so many F bombs? It seems like the only one not using them is 4 year old Noelle. Kidding but not kidding.
The story-line it's self I enjoyed. It reminded me slightly of another series by Fern Michaels (The Sisterhood) yet it remained quite different too. The way they got new clients was one way and how they worked with them was another. There

Danielle Norman nailed this one. I love her strong female leads she writes into her books and Roadster is no different. She gives us the Iron Ladies which is amazing all woman team that help woman but aren't known in major circles unless you receive a card. These woman are bada$$. Adeline is the main focus in this book. She is defiantly one you would wont in your corner to help take down any man that has done you wrong in your life. She is brash yet knows how to handle each situation with ease. ...more

I love Danielle Norman! Each book of hers is unique in its own way with tough as nails females and the alpha men who love them. Roadster gives us Adeline and Riley. Adeline doesn't believe in love, she's not a fan of men, and she's also not afraid to say everything on her mind. Riley is infuriatingly sexy and funny. He has a big heart and would do anything for his sister. Adeline is helping Riley's sister, Loren, with her divorce. Helping in a way that makes sure @$$holes like Loren's husband do ...more

This book is Danielle Norman, mixed with adrenaline, guns and a bad ass car. She writes about these incredible women, the Iron Ladies, who are shrouded in secret and do the jobs that will protect women who are running from abusive, controlling, domineering and cheating bastards.

Adeline is at the center of this book….because there are more to come, and she has a past that has made her hardened to many things and unable to trust anything or a

I have been a reader of Danielle Norman for quite sometime now--she just has the certain way with her words that hook me. Roaster is by far my favorite story and if Danielle's sense of humor in real life is anything like Adeline's, I'd love to be friends with her.

The story itself reminded me of the Sisterhood Series by Fern Michaels, written many years ago. I love a bad-ass heroine, and in this story we got more than one, that is determined to get even or seek revenge when someone has been done

Getting Even is my first book by Danielle Norman and I almost didn't get it. I'm so happy I gave it a try. Ms. Norman has penned an outstanding, well-written contemporary romance. The characters in this story are phenomenal and I loved the interactions and dialog between the ladies. Adeline is one of the Iron Ladies, a group that gets women free of their cheating or abusive spouse. Riley is the brother of the Iron Ladies latest client. Riley and Adeline's story is loaded with drama, humor, actio ...more

I really enjoyed Adeline’s job with her three best friends. They help women in bad situations get out of them legally (mostly). I loved watching their client gain back her confidence and protect her daughter. I also loved her and Riley’s meet cute at the gas station! I was really excited to see how they were going to meet again. Riley was so sweet and knew that he had to go slow with Adeline but he was definitely up front about his feelings. Adeline has had a rough past including addiction and p ...more

What an introduction for me to this author!

Adeline Morgan hasnt had it easy and as a result she has built a wall around her heart, that is until she meets Riley....will he be able to break down her walls and let him love her?

Adeline has to be hands down one of the toughest ladies i have ever read about, she’s fierce, sassy and very protective. I laughed alot at her one liners and i so badly want to become an Iron Lady.

Riley, man this guy can make me swoon. He has such a big heart confined in one
