Review: Speechless by Kim Fielding

Title: Speechless 
Author: Kim Fielding
Pages: 62
Format: Kindle (borrowed from library)
Published: Dreamspinner Press
Pulisher: July. 17, 2012
Genre: GLBT, Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Description: Travis Miller has a machining job, a cat named Elwood, and a pathetic love life. The one bright spot in his existence is the handsome guitar player he sometimes passes on his way home from work. But when he finally gathers the courage to speak to the man, Travis learns that former novelist Drew Clifton suffers from aphasia: Drew can understand everything Travis says, but he is unable to speak or write.

The two lonely men form a friendship that soon blossoms into romance. But communication is only one of their challenges—there’s also Travis’s inexperience with love and his precarious financial situation. If words are the bridge between two people, what will keep them together?

Review: A cute short story about two guys with disabilities who fall in love. Travis meets Drew who can't speak or write. I really liked how Travis got used to communicating with Drew and that he doesn't have a problem with it. There moments together were just so adorable. Everything is fine until Travis has to move because of his job and he goes, leaving Drew. I don't want to say anymore and spoil it but I enjoyed it. I think the author could of explained a little more about what Aphasia meant. All I knew was Drew got into an accident and now he can't read or write.

4 out of 5 Stars

There is second short story to this called The Gig but I can't find it on amazon or anywhere else. :(
