Blurb: Ky Maxwell is a PR guy who’s desperate for work. When his cushy movie studio job disappears, he tries everything to find new employment until his former boss takes pity on him and refers him to a major movie studio about to go into production on a huge sci-fi trilogy.

Ky’s excited about the project until his prospective employer, Lisa Bird, insists she needs to do an astrological chart of Ky and a psychic reading as part of the interview. His crazy maybe-boss predicts a new man coming into Ky’s life. This new man will have a fire sign, she claims, is probably a Leo, his first name will start with a “T,” and he will be in his early 30s.

Ky, however, couldn’t be less interested in her prediction. He needs work, and love won’t pay the bills. Unfortunately, Ky doesn’t get the job because Lisa believes he isn’t a team player and because their stars are out of alignment. That would be fine, except that the reading she gave him proves to be frighteningly accurate.

Soon, Ky has no idea which of the two wonderful new guys he meets is his “forever man.” How can he choose? Or will they, too, vanish as fast as Ky’s last paycheck?

Review: There is rarely a time that I do not like, if not love an AJ Llewellyn book. Only You is one of those times were I just like the book.

The story follows Ky – he works in LA in the movie business and finds himself in a slump when he loses his job. Ky’s best friend (Angus) and best friend’s boyfriend (Santos), who also working in the business) want to help him get back on his feet and if Ky finds a man along the way they would be entirely pleased by that, too.

When he does track down a potential job, Ky gets a psychic reading. For a guy that doesn’t put store in any of that kind of stuff, he really did start thinking about it. There are a number of love interests, including Santos’s cousin in Tijuana (where Santos and Angus go regularly), Isidoro.

Only You is the kind of book which is all telling and angst and found myself hanging when I thought that there needed to be more action. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing. There was also what I’ve been accused of doing plenty of times – not finishing a thought. Plenty happens and we know how Ky feels, but sometimes it just seems incomplete.

However, none of the characters really grabbed me (which actually made me a bit pissed off), though I found myself really sympathizing with Ky.

As I said, I really did enjoy this one but my imagination told me there was more unexplored potential in this one.
