Jaxon is getting by fine, severe dyslexia or not. Being a cab driver means he doesn’t need to read much, and the job has its perks. The pay isn’t bad, the people can be interesting, and having memorized the city streets keeps him from feeling too stupid.
When he picks up Caleb, a quiet fare in a nice suit, Jaxon doesn’t think anything of it. Then he ends up driving Caleb home the next week too, and the next, and the next. Eventually Caleb tries to communicate—by writing things down. Turns out that Caleb has such a bad stutter he spends most of his time mute.
If only Jaxon had an easier time reading what Caleb had to say. But he’s interested in trying, and Caleb seems interested back. They discover that, with a little bit of effort, it isn’t so hard to make themselves understood. Especially when what’s growing between them is definitely worth talking about.
So It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book that is so completely different and this one is it.
We start with a taxi ride and end with this magical couple end up in a HFN.
Jaxon, is a driver, been one for years, he’s really good at it. Problem is he feels this is all he is good at. He didn’t finish high school and no one but his younger sister has ever believed in him.
Caleb. on the other hand has everything, he’s rich, has a wonderful job, beautiful apartment, but he also has an issue. The big difference between them is Caleb was nurtured and has found ways around his issue.
These two have found an interesting bond, they both have found a common ground with the disabilities, insecurities that come with that. And even though Caleb tries to prove to Jaxon he doesn’t care watching him back that up really makes this story perfect.
It was a charming afternoon read while stuck at work.
