The psychic predicted Ky would meet his one and only. What in the world does he do with two guys who both match her description?
Ky Maxwell is desperate for work. When his cushy studio PR job disappears, his former boss takes pity on him, referring him to an independent movie company going into production with a huge sci-fi trilogy.
Ky’s excited until Lisa, his prospective employer, insists on doing an astrological chart of Ky as part of the interview, along with a psychic reading. His crazy maybe-boss predicts a new man coming into Ky’s life. She goes into great detail. He’s a fire sign, probably a Leo, his first name starts with a T, he’s in his early 30s. And…he’s the one!
Ky couldn’t be less interested. He needs work. Love won’t pay the bills. He doesn’t get the job because Lisa believes their stars are out of alignment. Really? The reading is proving to be frighteningly accurate. Since he’s cut off from her, though, he has no idea which of the two wonderful new guys he meets is his forever man. How can he choose? Or will they, too, soon vanish as fast as Ky’s last paycheck?
Ky, a Hollywood PR executive loses his job due to studio cutbacks. Desperate for work, he reaches out to a contacts to get work. He comes into contact with Lisa, a prospective employer who has a thing about tarot card readings and astrology. She predicts that he will meet his soul mate. He decides to travel to Mexico with friends when the interview doesn’t pan out and it there his life gets a little more interesting when he meets Isidoro. He’s not certain where the relationship between he and Isi is going or even how long it will last but he’s decided to just go where it takes him, to live in the moment if you will.
I like Llewelyn’s writing style. Her characters and storylines are always quirky and keeps you on your toes. There was a little too much of a glimpse into the inner workings of Hollywood provided for my liking but I get that it served to shape the story.
I adored Ky’s character. He didn’t let his unfortunate situation get him down. I like how he had that glass half full type of personality. I also loved his relationship with his friends. The characters and storyline was really well developed considering the length of the story. I really am looking forward to seeing more from these characters.
