Nothing good ever comes from asking someone else to get to know the person they like. Only certain things can come from it, hurt feelings all around, but especially from the one that asked you to talk to the other person. When in reality you are falling for the person you are supposed to be saying nothing but good things about the person that sent you on this fool's errand to begin with.

Milo wants to marry Priscilla but he didnít know how to woo her, he doesn't have the words. So he asked his assistant, Ian, to do it for him, to pave the way for him to just come in later and she would be happy to marry him. Ian knew he should have said no, but he didnít and only dug himself in deeper forgetting to talk about Milo when Priscilla interested him.

Priscilla, well, she pretty much did what she was told by her father. She was cool almost cold while in public and around her father. But with friends she was Prissy and wasnít afraid to voice her opinion. It was Prissy that Ian got to know.

This was pretty much a story of falling in love and learning to be yourself. It took Priscilla a long time to be true to herself and speak for herself. It took Ian coming into her life to be able to stand up to her father.

Speak My Love by Barri Bryan had a few obstacles that needed to be overcome by almost everyone in the story. It was interesting to hear some of the talks between Priscilla and her friend and Priscilla talking to herself. I liked the story, but I just had a hard time connecting with the characters. No one caught my attention to make me feel anything for them.
