I am an avid reader and love books of all shapes and sizes. When I travel (which is frequent) my Kindle is always in my purse –even if I am just going to the doctor. You never know when you will have a few spare minutes. I blog at It’s Just Life (www.itsjustlife.me) and often post book reviews there for others to read. I love to support authors and have made many friends over the years with new and indie authors. Would love to be considered to do reviews for you. Thanks in advance!
Genres I enjoy: mysteries, thrillers, chick lit, anthologies, memoirs and young adult

Sarah Randolph believes she’s just an ordinary woman, at least until the day she meets Ramsey—a mysterious man who tells her that not only is she not ordinary…she’s not even human.
Depends on him… John Sherlock Ramsey, an Earth-born Eudoran, is a Protector. He’s assigned to help Sarah complete her Shift, a period of intense transformation experienced by those of his species. But her Shift is different and risky, because she’s a Red-Line, a member of his kind not seen in over sixty years.
Yet she is the key to his survival... As her abilities are revealed and the secrets of their destiny exposed, they must confront an assailant who shares Sarah’s unique origins and whose motives are far more sinister than anything Ramsey has ever encountered.
Will Sarah’s unique powers change their fate? Or will she prove to be Ramsey’s last assignment on earth and watch as her people succumb to extinction?
