Wow, it appears Loud and Clear is Aidan Wayne's first book. It's a lovely story and I'm looking forward to reading more from this new author.
The plot is simple - Caleb, a successful executive in a demanding marketing job, needs a cab ride home every Tuesday night from the bar, due to a work-mandated evening of drinking and corporate "bonding." Jaxon, the cab driver who picks him up weekly, is dyslexic and cannot read well, believing himself to be "dumber than a box of rocks" (yet he has basically memorized the entire city in order to do his job.) Caleb stutters and ASL is his preferred mode of communication, followed by writing notes ... which Jaxon cannot read.
Despite this, they find a way to communicate and start a romantic relationship that slowly develops throughout the course of the book ... without huge amounts of angst or miscommunication or insane plot points and drama and, get this, no sex scenes. Loud and Clear holds your interest from start to finish and every last scene in the book fits beautifully into the story.
