What does the girl who can make wishes come true give to the man who has everything?
Andra Martineau is no ordinary young woman. She’s a Klêidouchos Propylaia (K-Pro for short), which means she has the unique ability to help certain people get exactly what they want. And Andra is good at her job–her clients have gone on to become a veritable who’s who of the rich-and-famous.
David Styles is an up-and-coming actor with everything going for him: looks, talent, and countless beautiful women vying for his attention. But when Andra turns up in his bed demanding to know what he wants, his perfect world starts to spiral out of control. And it’s not just his reputation on the line–what David doesn’t know can certainly harm him, in ways he couldn’t possibly begin to imagine.
With the help of David’s incorrigible costar, Andra begins to realize not only her own true nature, but David’s hidden identity as well. Andra is forced to battle not only her attraction to David (and she never gets involved with clients), but the being within him that wants to take away everything she holds dear.
As David continues to lose himself to the strengthening form within him, Andra navigates the jealousies of the film’s director and David’s would-be paramour in an effort to save him.
She can make others’ wishes come true . . . But can she grant her own?
Funny, readable, and populated with a host of entertaining personalities, The K-Pro is a fast-paced contemporary fantasy with a paranormal twist.
I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when I started reading this book. But I was instantly drawn into it as Andra suddenly appears in David’s bed. I loved from the start David’s initial reaction to Andra that he didn’t know what she meant when she asked what he wanted and his need for her to be gone. I was curious about Alfred’s reason for paying so much attention to Andra, and was surprised when he started talking to David as if they were both something other than who they are.
Finding out that David, Alfred and even Andra weren’t who we thought they were, but were actual something much more, was a great twist I didn’t see coming. It was a great way to bring in mythical creature without making the entire book about them, and still writing a small underlying love story. Though the love story for David and Andra was very underlying in this book, it was still there and one that made you want to root for them as a couple.
I really enjoyed how the mythology kind of took place between chapters, but made more sense by the end of the story. Its integration into the story was well done.
All in all I enjoyed this book.
