[Blog Tour - Review & Giveaway] Rumor Has It ~ Elisabeth Grace

Rumor Has It by Elisabeth Grace 
(Limelight #1) 
Publication date: December 6, 2013
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 have a soft spot for romance novels with happily ever afters and a HOT spot for alpha males! I currently live outside Toronto, Canada with my hubby, two small children and cat spawned by the devil. Life is busy, but never to busy for a good story and to share my love of reading and writing with others. Things I can tell you that sum me up...I'm a sugar and carb addict, self-professed Gandy Girl, a disaster in the kitchen, a LOVER of all music, I enjoy reality TV and I'm an early riser! When I have a moment to breath you can usually find me typing furiously on the keyboard to get my next story on paper, or curled up reading about someone else's HEA. The second book in my Limelight series, Picture Perfect, is set to release at the end of March 2014.

Jasmine's Review

I actually really liked this book. When I started it I couldn't put it down!!! I could have read it in one go but I had school the next day.

I'm actually not much of a fan of books with celebrity as one of the characters. Yes I know SHOCKER! So I'm pretty sure your wondering now why on earth I would join if I don't like books with celebrities. The answer is pretty simple. THE *drum roll please!* COVER. I know don't judge a book by its cover and all that. But I'm a really simple person and shallow person I admit it!!:)

But it worked just fine in this book. Cause I LOVE IT!

Ellie Wagner is cool. She kind, sweet and all that perfect girl in the inside and hot girl in the outside. She's also independent, kinda insecure but not at the same time. 

But MASON NASH is one hot man! *fangirl!!!!!* The way he treats his siblings are just too cute too bad we didn't see a lot of them though. He has ABS!!! Who doesn't like a hot man with abs??? NO ONE! He is also a singer or hip hopper or whatever you call it. That's like plus 100 points on his hotness and he has .... wait for it.... DIMPLES!!!! I think that's just too much for one man. I would love to have even just a little part of him.:D

Another thing aside from Mason that I really love in this book is the way the author focused more on the present rather than all the problems from the past suddenly coming out of nowhere. I love that she didn't keep on writing about how their parents were so sucky and all that and have them keep on fighting their parents and hating them. And all that stuff in the past that ruined them and made them broken and all that.

One thing that I didn't like about this book is that it only focused on those two. There were a lot of scenes with Ellie's friends and I just felt that Ellie was really that good of a friend. I also wanted to know more about the other characters of the book and not just two of them.

Overall it is a really great read!

4.5 Hip Hop dudes.
What do you even call them??
