3.0 out of 5 starsLeast fav of the series
Reviewed in the United States on January 22, 2019
This has been an interesting series, and I’ve enjoyed the other stories. Just didn’t care for the way this one ended. The series is about the four Christokas brothers and how they find their loves. The last is Tristan and his Stella, the most colorful of the Iron Orchids. As in most romances, love blooms. As we all know, however, the course of true love never runs smoothly. There’s always a conflict or impediment of some sort. So far so good. Here, the resolution of the conflict felt contrived. It’s in how a couple overcomes their conflicts that you really see the depth of their characters and romance. I didn’t get any depth from the ending. The steps taken to overcome the conflict felt superficial to me, more of a stunt than an attempt to address the underlying issue. Others clearly enjoyed the story, but it didn’t completely work for me. I’d still recommend the series, but wished for a more heartfelt wrap up of this story and the series.
5.0 out of 5 starsBest book yet by Danielle Norman

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. You feel like part of the family as you read along!! Amazing book - so sad it is the end of this series!!!
Stella has always been a no filter kind of girl. She tells it like it is whether you like it or not. She has been a character through the whole Iron Orchids series. Tristan has always been a constant love for her, but she could never display it. Tristan’s belief in family has always shined in every book. He’s worked hard for what he has and it shows.
This romance is fast nd sweet all mixed into one. Quick because they make a rash decision that forever changes thier path in life. Upsetting because when a tough situation happens, Stella feels betrayed and turns her back on the only family she’s ever known. Sweet because Tristan “sees the light” and has to make a big gesture.
One lesson learned from this book is to not jump to conclusions. Always find all the information out before harsh words are spoken and feelings are hurt.
I gave the book 4 stars because I’ve enjoyed this series, and they do get their happy ending. However, this book really didn’t jive with the rest of the series. The support from other characters was absent, instead they were all picking sides. In previous books the supporting characters rally around the people having the issue, to help them solve it together. I really missed that, it’s what helped make the previous books wonderful. Also, Stella was reduced to an insecure and unsure woman. That’s not the Stella we’ve all come to know and love, so that didn’t jive as well. The other thing that I didn’t like, was how the birth of Ariel’s baby just never happened!! She is at her due date, and it just gets left out of the book. I think that is a pretty important piece of the whole series, and I hated it wasn’t in the book. The last thing was the epilogue, and how the timing is completely off with the epilogue in Impact. In impact it is 3 years later, and Stella is supposedly pregnant with the first child. Well according to the epilogue in until she should be on child 3 by the time the cruise happens in impact. So proofreaders and editors missed a big oops right there. I feel that when you’re doing a series, the timeline is always important, and it’s one of my peeves when it’s completely missed or ignored. I’m going to miss this series, it’s been great. I do hope that these characters will make some appearances in the new series.
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 ladies. She wears her emotions out for all to see and will put you in your place when needed. She is perfect for Tristan. What can I say about Tristan that you don't already know if you are familiar with this series already. But if you are not then Tristan is dedicated to not only his work but his family too. He isn't prone to spontaneous things until Stella. I love the chemistry with them. You can just feel it through out the book. And as you read you will see why my heart broke and why I hoped Stella and Tristan could figure their crap out. Ugh……...Thank you Danielle Norman for that emotional ride. But still this book is such a fabulous read. It needs to be one clicked and read today. I couldn't put this down at all. I love the Iron Orchids series.
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 complete without an appearance of all of the previous characters. At times I wanted to smack Tristan for being so oblivious but his huge Greek family took care of that for me. Stella’s pride and obstinate nature could be her downfall. I am extremely sad to see this series come to an end but I’m glad I’ve read this. And who better to end the series with aside from Stella because she was the most integral part of the Iron Orchids. I can’t wait for another series from this fabulous author!! Hopefully Piper will get a book in a future series.
Stella is the brash take no prisoners woman. She has sass and attitude gallore. When she and Tristan are sent to Vegas on a hospital trip they get up to more than they bargained for. A happy middle then utter turmoil then a great ending.

I think this was the best one out of the series. I couldn't go to sleep until I found out the outcome so read until 2 o'clock in the morning. I loved the whole series and I'm sorry to see it end. The language could have been toned down a bit.
