A single phone call shatters her life...

Christine Ramirez’s phone rings in the dead of night. A man’s voice - unfamiliar and urgent - tells her to run.

She flees, but deadly, unknown assailants pursue her through the night. Her only saviour is the gruff stranger on the other end of the line.

Paul has a secret. He’s been watching her - maybe a little more than the assignmen

This book has one of the best opening chapters I've ever read in a romance novel; it was action-packed, original and just top notch really. The author drops the reader in the middle of an exciting scene: our heroine is awakened by a call in the middle of the night telling her that she needs to get out of her house because she's in danger. What follows is a thrilling escape. I don't think the subsequent chapters were AS great. Don't get me wrong - they were good, very well written but I found mys ...more

Ainlinn Kearns starts her book with a thrilling chase leading to a total surprise. Christine Ramirez is awakened with a warning call that she is about to be killed. The voice directs her through a hair raising escape where she will eventually meet the person who saved her life. Paul is ex-military who has taken a job with a security company. Together they will try to unravel the mystery of who is trying to kill her.Not your run of the mill romance, Kearns' hero Paul is not what Christina was exp ...more

This was recced to me on Twitter by a couple of people and I'm so glad I picked it up. It has an explosive start that drew me right in. The story moved quickly but believably. The romance was more of a slow burn yet still moved along quickly. I loved the respect and care that Paul and Christine had for and with each other. The secondary characters were also engaging and I can hardly wait to read their stories.

Analysing "Station Alpha" from the reading pleasure perspective, the book was awesome. I can’t remember enjoying so much reading a story, just for the fun of reading it and getting to know the characters. This book started very high – what a memorable entrance! - and ended with the same rating.
The characters are one of the strongest point of the book. Aislinn Kearns does wonders with characterization; in my mind’s eye I have an image of how these people look like, what they feel, who they are.

I read Soldiering On (Soldiering On #0.5) first, and I'm so glad I did. It gave me such great insight into the characters in this book. This book mostly features Paul and Christine, but you do get snippets of other people and I already knew the background on them, so it made the story that much more enjoyable. I do highly recommend you read the prequel first just for that reason. I really adored Paul, gruffness and all. He was a great guy, even as closed off as he was. Christine was his perfect ...more

I think the heroine could have been a little more disturbed by the violent attacks on her life - but otherwise fun suspense and a nice romance

Fantastic read

This is an great, fast paced adventure full of intrigue and suspense, romance and love, overcoming adversity and moving past physical disabilities. The characters are achingly charming and it is easy to get caught up in their story as they discover their affection for one another. It is beautifully written with witty, humous and authentic dialogue that draws both smiles and gasps. A wonderful book and highly recommended.

It really started off with an exciting bang. Paul is a wonderful hero and I loved reading his story. Plus his SCI was handled well, with enough little details you could tell the author had done her research.

Well written with a nice mix of excitement, mystery, sweetness, and romance.

I'm looking forward to the next one.

(Also I love the cover. The way he is looking up at her is so damn sexy.)

First of all, I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. In the opening chapter, the reader is thrown into a late night raid of Christine's house. She has no idea why people with guns are after her - only that a man on the other end of her phone is trying to save her life.

So the book proceeds to follow through Christine's new life in hiding, giving her perspective along with that of the man who saved her. The pair try to solve the mystery of her attack.

I think if this book had remained a myste

Nicely intriguing storyline, sweet couple

4.5 stars
After reading the prequel to the series, Paul was one of the characters I most wanted to learn about. I was happy to see him get his HEA, and especially that his is the first in the series. It's rare to read about the H in a romance being in a wheelchair, and it was great to read a book that wasn't your stereotyped bad boy/alpha/billionaire/pro-athlete story, but one with characters that have faced real challenges. He and Christine were both very

I wanted to read this because of the disabled hero. He was pretty awesome, but the book and I didn't have very good chemistry. After the first scene of suspense, they mostly do a lot of talking, and they're... fine. I could buy the romance, but ultimately it was pretty forgettable. Also, there is sequel-baiting so obvious you can see it from space.

I haven't decided whether I'll try the next one yet.

Wounded Heroes. Action Movies. Happily Ever Afters.

These are a few of Aislinn’s favourite things, and you’ll find all of the above in her writing. Whether it’s the Soldiering On series – about wounded military veterans starting a security company together and finding love along the way - or her upcoming series about underground fighters.

If she’s not reading romance novels or watching action movies
