The gang returns...
I’m Stella Lang, everyone thinks of me as the sassy one, the one who’s not afraid to say what’s on her mind, but the truth is…I’m scared.
Scared of being rejected.
Scared of having my heart broken all by one man…Tristan Christakos.

He’s a doctor at the hospital where I work.
I’m close to his entire family - his brothers are married to my best friends a

I have loved this series from the start and was very excited that Stella and Tristan finally got their own story! That being said I thought this book fell a little flat compared to the others. I understand this is book five in the series and we've seen sneak peeks of their relationship throughout the previous books but I would have liked more character development between the two main characters. It felt a bit rushed and summarized. And then there was the big conflict that I felt sort of came ou ...more

I find I'm very meh...on this one. From previous books you didn't see how Tristan and Stella were crushing on each other, like some of the past characters. So when they ended up together and in Vegas I knew where things were going to go, the only surprised that that things were thought out and planned, not a drunken after thought.

The drama that found Tristan and Stella when they got home made me roll my eyes. I wanted to them to talk to the source, not hide things. Then when things were cleared

OMGOMGOMGOMG! Like most people who love the Iron Orchids I have been dying for Stella’s book. It’s bittersweet since this is the final book in the series, but HOLY GUACAMOLE what a finale! I’ll tell you now, this review is going to be vague which means it’ll be shorter than my typical ramblings of the magnificent worlds Danielle Norman creates but it’s for a darn good reason. Stella and Tristan have a story that you have to experience. Trust me when I say you want that experience. Go in blind an ...more

Hot damn……this is the elusive last book of the Iron Orchid series, and it is all about Stella. We have been begging, dreaming, wanting this book for so long and Danielle Norman did that thing. I will not give you any spoilers, and boy are there some shit in there that will have you cussing her out.

This book is a WOW…a What the F’ was she thinking, and it is so freaking worth it.-Review by Catherine(Catty)

STELLA! TRISTAN! OMG, and I thought their road to love would be easy. Boy was I wrong! A lot of laughs and a lot of tears the whole way through. Love this series!

Until (Iron Orchids, #5) by Danielle Norman  
A battle of wills, a meeting of hearts and the beauty of what makes a family. Until is one last hurrah with some awesome old friends. Norman keeps the laughs rolling, the heart pumping and the celebrations irresistible in a heartwarming farewell.

I was super excited about this one. I really hope this isn't the last book, as there are more Iron Orchids that need a man. Stella and Tristan finally get together and they were amazing...until something pops up that makes them step back from each other. This is where the story started to fall apart from me.... I could not understand what Stella's issue was... and totally did not see why Tristan was at fault. I understand what was happening and the gravity of the situation.... but REALL?? Any sa ...more
Janine - The World Was Hers for the Reading
Sassy Stella Lang has had a crush on Tristan Christakosos for years. It doesn’t help that her brother married Tristan’s cousin and she is around him constantly at family events as well as the fact they are colleagues at the hospital. While they may have had one night together, she definitely can’t act on it again . . . she has way too much to lose if things go wrong.

For Tristan Christakosos, one night with Stella wasn’t enough. Now he plans to use a work related trip to Las Vegas to prove it to

STELLA!!! Yep, I went there. But let me tell you...Stella and Tristan were exactly what I needed. I love these two. I might be a little biased, but who doesn't love a hot nurse and a sexy as sin doctor? I loved this story, I love these characters, I love the secondary characters, I love everything about this book. I am incredibly sad to see this series end, but I'm hoping we get more from Iron Orchids at some point. I feel like these ladies and ge

I am extremely sad to see this series come to an end!!! I want more of my girls in the Iron Orchids! I knew I had to have Stella’s book so I one-clicked it as soon as it came up on pre-order, and I am so glad I did!! This is Stella and Tristan story and it is a doozy. This story is rocked with sexual tension, messed up findings in a test and a trip to Vegas. Ms Norman pulled out of all of the stops with the finale of her series. The characters story lines are so interwoven the story wouldn’t be ...more

Since Stella and Tristan not only work together but are part of the same group of friends, she has delegated him to a look but don’t touch category. If they crossed the line and things didn’t work out it would be nothing but awkward but sometimes good intentions don’t work out the way you plan.

Tristan is not about to be friend zoned and he has the perfect solution to that problem which is a work trip to Vegas. Let the fun begin!

This story has everything you could ask for. A hero that will make y

Holy Mother of Amazing! This final installment to the Iron Orchids series was everything I expected and then some. Stella the series favorite finally got her story. And what a freaking story it was.

Danielle Norman pulled all the stops on this and created a final chapter that could only be that of Stella's. The Iron Orchids is finally complete after much wait. But great things come to those who wait. Ahhhhh this book had me on a roller coaster ride! Grab a copy now!

3.5 stars

This was pretty good. There's a HUGE twist in here that I did not expect. I loved it. And I loved Tristan until it happened. I don't think he apologized enough or did enough to make it right with Stella.

Even though this is book 5 in the series, I read it as a stand alone and was not lost. Would I have enjoyed it more if I'd read the previous books? Probably. But I don't know that it would have gotten it any more stars.

3.5 ish? I really enjoyed the story up until that twist, then any kind of emotions I'd felt for the male MC went right out the window. The beginning felt a little summarized and the story's pacing got better in the middle, but the twist was insane and then the end felt rushed. I feel like Tristan should have groveled a lot more because of his level of asshattery. ...more

I love this series and I have been waiting for Tristen and Stella to finally be together. Of course, their go at it isn't going to be easy. So many emotions reading this story. I laughed, sighed, smiled and felt the love from these swoony men and crazy women. I was entertained by the "family telephone secrets" section. Slight spoiler, there is a major WTF moment. And that ending......Wow!

It was so much fun to catch up with the Christakos family and all of the Iron Orchids. Heck, I am ready to mo

A great story! I do feel that it became more Tristan’s story than Stella’s but still great. Stella’s personality is great as ever!

I was so excited to read Stella and Tristan’s story, fan reactions had me nervous about what was going to happen as I’ve fallen in love with these characters. While I am thrilled to have learned what’s become of these two I wish the story would have had more meat. The twist was random and much unlike the others, who had robust back stories; this couple didn’t have the support from one another that we’ve seen in other Iron Orchids books. As others have pointed out the storyline seemed a l

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, or does it? I loved Tristan and Stella! I loved how sassy and strong Stella was, and I loved how determined Tristan was. He wanted Stella and he intended to make her his. They both work together and try to keep it professional, but the chemistry between them sizzles when they're near each other, not to mention they are together a lot because of their friends and family. How long can they keep things platonic, especially when they are together in Vegas for a ...more

I was looking forward to this book especially because it's Stella and Tristan's HEA. But man it turned out as a huge disappointment for me because the writing and plot was all messed up like it was not well thought out. I didn't understand why Ms. Norman presented them in their worst especially Stella. that was a huge let down. I mean couldn't there be a different type of conflict that does not inflict so much pain on George and Christine whom we already knew were tight and still very much in lo ...more

I loved every book in this series but have never been a fan of Stella. I only read her book in case there are more in the series. I have felt that she was immature and self absorbed and I never saw her as the heart and soul of their motorcycle club that she was made out to be in all of the books, to me she was always the bratty sister looking for attention. I was very disappointed that Tristan was made out to be the bad guy and his integrity was destroyed in order for the HEA. I felt the resolut ...more

This is the fifth book in the Iron Orchids series by Danielle Norman. It was just as fun, sweet, and entertaining as previous books in the series. Although, this is my least favorite out of all of the books in the series. OK, that really means that since this is still a really good series and I really, really like it, this book is still good. It’s just that compared to the others…. So, what is it that’s lacking?

Well, this one went from “we’re just good friends” to “we’re totally a couple that’s

I absolutely loved this book. I consumed this book in about 6 hours. I laughed, cried and felt all the feelings the author described. This family is amazing and show so much love for everyone, family or extended family. It warms your heart and helps you see there are good people out there. Family is not just blood. It is who you choose to call family. Amazing book - so sad it is the end of this series!!!

Dirty mouth, sarcasm, and no filter are 3 ways to describe Stella. She had been a character

Hello hangover. Ugh. My heart was happy. Then I broke. I screamed at my kindle. I teared up. Then my heart was happy again. I think that would be the best way to describe what I went through while reading Until. I love the Iron Orchids series so much. I love that we get the whole Christakos clan and a little of Ringo too. New faces make an appearance and makes me think we will see more of those ladies to come. Stella is amazing and doesn't hold back. She probably has the biggest heart of all the ...more

Stella was my all time favorite character in this series! She was ridiculously funny, very sassy, didn't take crap from anyone but had a heart of gold! I loved her from the very first book, which is why I was sorely disappointed in her behavior in this book. I was thrilled for her and Tristan, they were just perfect together! I can't really go into details as I don't want to ruin the read for future readers but I will say that I was totally team Tristan! I knew the whole genetics thing was a hug ...more

I have been with this author since she first started and loved this series. Tristan and Stella's story and the one I have been waiting for. I am so sad to see this series finish but I am hoping to maybe see more of the Iron Orchids and their sexy Men in her next series which I am hoping will feature some more kick ass ladies.

I'm kind of torn with this one as whilst I really enjoyed Tristan and Stella's finally getting together I have mixed feelings over the twist in the story. I'm not going to g

Finally the story I have been dying to read!!! Stella truly is my spirit animal and Danielle did not disappoint with this ending. If you have been keeping up with the Iron Orchids then of course you know each story has its challenges for the destined lover and this one really got me. Stella is that friend that when you introduce her to other people either have to tell her to be nice or apologize in advance for what she may say or do(but in a good way lol) to see a softer side of her and see that ...more

What is not to love about this Series. I'm not giving anything away, but I've would love to be adopted into this Greek family. Who sticks together no matter what?

Been waiting for stella.

I’ve been waiting for Stella’s story for awhile. It was a great love story and don’t want to give spoilers, but a couple thoughts. I’ve always loved Stella; she is the embodiment of badass, sassy, ride or die bitch, but in this book she was just a plain bitch. She was super self centered and despite the shit going down being sucky on both sides, basically threw down an ultimatum.

None of this has any bearing on the author; she did a fantastic job of crafting a wicked tal
