She didn’t mean to knock him into that canal…

Megan knows better than to make decisions based on passion, but even she can’t resist a summer internship in Venice. The handsome tenor she knocked into the canal should be easier to resist since he’s still mad at her.

Should be easier.

Lorenzo lives for his dreams, even if sometimes that means doing odd jobs to pay the bills.

This book will make you want to go to Venice and visit the sights, the people, hear the music and the language of passionate people like the characters in this book. Their passion and true love comes out in the end and cannot be denied any longer.

It was interesting to have a television reality show centered around people and instruments they play in an orchestra with the chance to win a year's contract. The main characters and secondary characters were wonderful in how the story was woven around

I didn’t like Lorenzo at first. He was rude and ungentlemanly to Megan after she accidentally knocked him into the water. He’s not happy with his job as Tom’s assistance and takes out on her. He was rigid about his singing, but Megan and the singing gondolier Raffaele help him see other possibilities without compromising his ideals. Megan seems to play it safe with a degree in music education and playing her cello with precision, but not passion. I was surprised she would take a risk by going on ...more

Truly a delightful read that had me sitting in Venice watching all of this story unfold before me. The author has done such a good job of bringing the reader into the story with her passion and descriptions, but not in a tedious over descriptive manner. Megan is holding so much inside that you can almost feel it ready to burst out. A beautiful love story with just enough "greed and jealously" from select people to keep it flowing to a beautiful conclusion. My first, but hopefully not my last, ...more

The characters were well drawn and the story pacing was good. I love all the little glimpses for Venice––enough to visualize the setting but not so much as to get bogged down with descriptions.

So glad the author realizes that putting art in front of the masses "who don't have a clue how to appreciate it" gives them the opportunity to learn to appreciate it :)
I know what I like, and after watching certain televised contests, I know why I like them. (I love the commentators and judges that teach

Megan loves her chello but refuses to feel music or emotions. She’s afraid she’ll loose herself. Megan is encouraged by her professor to go to Venice to compete in a reality show about classical music.

Lorenzo sings at the theater that is sponsoring the competition and works part time for the shows director. He loves opera and Venice to the point he disdains any other music and the thought of living anywhere else.

Megan is teamed with Lorenzo and immediately there is friction and animosity. What

Accidentlally Enemies

A very interesting story. Despite getting off to a very bad meeting, they are constantly thrown together. She doesn't want to fall for a musician or let her music become too important in her life. Being able,to sing his opera and staying in Vienna are his priorities. Somehow, along the way, everything changes when they realize what is really important. I gave this book 5 stars.

A touching and moving romance

A friendship that takes awhile to take off due to a bad first meeting and lots of assumed ideas.

A really sweet romance, not only of finding a love that changes they way you look at life but also of their love of another kind. She is an aspiring Cellist and he is a singer of the Opera.

A little slow in places but worth the effort. And loved the ending

I loved this story of Megan and Lorenzo. I couldn't put it down, stayed up late .i found it very interesting from Megan's hours of practicing and then when she let the music flow from her heart, that's when the story came alive.

Well worth the read, I was anArc reader and got a free book from Shanna in advance.
I look forward to her next book.

Finding love in Venice, what could be more romantic? Megan and Lorenzo developing their romance in a romantic location was fun to read. The story line is entertaining and it's nice to read a clean wholesome romance story. A delightful read for sure.

Sweet romance

Such an amazingly descriptive story. Shanna is great with all the little details of the people and places you truly can visualize yourself in Venice. Even the musical descriptions allow you to “hear” the love songs. Expertly done, a great read. Can’t wait for her next release.

I was delightfully surprised to find this novel more than a fun romance. The depth of the Lorenzo and Megan struggles and their road together to become something greater was a marvel to read. Shanna created a story with such depth that you will see musicians quite differently as well as your own outlook on life. And of course, plan your next trip to Venice.

She plays the cello and is entered in a music based reality show in Venice. She Mets an Opera singer and they clash. She has hangups about letting her passion/emotions affect her music, he has hangups about her and the show.

Book two in the Love Takes Flight series a well written story that had me smiling. Lorenzo and Megan will have a lot to go through before they get their happy ending. I enjoyed reading. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Good book with a decent plot. Parts of the book were a little slow. Parts of the plot felt like they were left hanging. Overall a decent book.

This new author is getting better with each new title. I love a fun, clean romance, and dreaming of escaping to Venice while reading this delightful story made my day.

(5 stars) - this excellent series just keeps getting better!

I loved the 1st book in this series, and so I had high hopes for this 2nd one - and it still managed to exceed those expectations.

The stories in this series are so refreshingly original. This one is an enemies-to-lovers trope like the 1st - one of the most difficult tropes to pull off - and the author again succeeds in having the hero go believably
