Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
All publicity is good publicity, right? Unless you’re recent college grad Ellie Wagner and an embarrassing video of you and your boyfriend goes viral. Every man in your life abandons you, but who knew a one-minute clip of your latest doomed relationship would brand you a slut, prevent you from getting your perfect job, and force you to keep doing the one thing you swore you’d never do again…live with your mother.
But staying with mom and her latest boy-toy (is this husband number four or five?) until your life turns around might not be all bad. Especially when you fall – literally – at the feet of a sexy, green-eyed stranger who offers you freedom and a life of luxury on a gold-rimmed platter.
There’s only one little problem – the man of your dreams is none other than Mason Nash, the latest hip-hop star busting up the music charts. Fame and fortune are his calling cards and he’s vying to steal the show on a new reality TV series that will catapult him into mainstream stardom. Hello spotlight.
The man behind the famous persona is perfect for Ellie in every way, but can she overcome the ugly pitfalls that come with Mason’s celebrity status? Or will she be forced to choose between the man she loves and the independent life she longs for? After all, fame and fortune aren’t always what they seem and not all publicity is good publicity…

I really enjoyed Rumor Has It . It was refreshing to have a different type of sexy bad boy musician other then a rock star to take the limelight :P Lately it seems most stories are about rock stars meaning rock music but I would say that Mason is a Rock Star...yeah I know he is a hip-hop musician but he totally rocks and is a Star therefore a Rock Star. :) Rumor Has It is a easy going fantastic read that makes it hard to put down. I couldn't drop it until I was done.
The story is told in the POV of both Mason and Ellie. I can't express enough how much I really love this POV because it gives you insight to both sides of the story making more of a complete circle instead of being half complete and have me wondering what the guy is thinking. So being able to see in the minds of both character was awesome. Ellie was actually a good character, Sometime I have a hard time with lead girls being too whinny or annoying but Ellie wasn't such a thing. She was a fun likable character and from the first time she met Mason they just worked well together. Mason ...Mason..Mason. :) he was Amazing. Super sexy, charming and I love how he learns to open up and let Ellie in. The Storyline was great, it keep me entertained throughout the whole book. It all flowed well and in my eyes there was never a dull moment.
All in all Rumor Has It was Amazing, fast, fun, charming story with a mix of added drama that completed it. Elisabeth's form of writing is light and easily understand. It for sure will have me picking up more books from her soon ( once they come out :P ) Would I recommend this read? Heck Yes! especially to those who like New Adult Romance Novels..this is a must read for you!! :)
