Into the chaos of a prolonged drought step Angel Velasquez—a "water knife"; Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist; and Maria Villarosa, a young migrant, who dreams of escaping north to those places where water still falls from the sky: All three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger, more corrupt and dirtier than any of them could have imagined.

It is no rumor, but fact, that over the past couple of weeks I have absolutely fallen for the Animal Magnetism series and the amazing writing skills of Jill Shalvis. Rumor Has It, book #4 in the series, is definitely no exception to that.

Griffin Reid is the quintessential tortured, sexy, bad*** hero that will have you swooning from the start. He has come home to recover from a debilitating injury he sustained, while on a Special Ops mission, and to attend the wedding of Holly & Adam, his sister and best friend.

Kate Evans is easily my favorite heroine of this series. She is funny, clumsy, quirky and, when nervous, spouts off crazy random facts that kept me laughing throughout the entire book. Her personality is so sincere, honest and absolutely loveable. When her long time crush returns to town, she wants to finally make a connection with him, but she just doesn't know how.

Together, Kate & Grif are just magical and I loved every single moment of their story. Grif tries to fight his feelings for his sister's best friend and only make their connection physical. Holly is determined to show Grif that there are more sides to her than just sweetness. Their acceptance of each other, and the quirks that they have, was beautiful; the challenge that they each presented the other was extremely fun to read; and the love that developed between them was breath-taking!

Rumor Has It is not only a fabulous addition to the Animal Magnetism series, but to the Contemporary Romance genre as well. The voice that Jill Shalvis affords the genre is exceptionally strong and powerful. This is definitely a book, series and author that you need to be reading!

I cannot get enough of Jill Shalvis' novels, and I have especially enjoyed the Animal Magnetism series. I was excited to see that this wasn't the end of the series!!!
This one was zany, cooky, and very enjoyable read. So much was going on in Kate's life, and she had such a passion for life, it really was great to see her be able to have that calming influence on her in the form of one big alpha male, Griff. The supporting cast was a lot of fun, as well. Okay, some you wanted to shake a little (Donald!), but mostly it just showed how Kate just had such a passion for everything she did that people just automatically gravitated to her.
Griff needed someone who could be there and just be quiet with him sometimes, and that was great for both of them.
Honestly, this was probably my favorite, (other than Adam's story) of the series, merely because Griff needed Kate as much, if not more, than she needed him.
One of the funniest lines EVER that I have read in a book! "And he should have to sleep in the wet spot at least half the time". I was laughing so hard, my husband actually wanted to know what I was reading that was so funny (that never happens).
Jill Shalvis is one of my favorite authors just for her humor. If you can get sexy and humorous in the same book, I am sold!
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars? I wanted more animals! A solid 4.5 stars!!!!

I've been reading straight through this series. First Animal Magnetism then Animal Attraction then Rescue My Heart and, now most recently, "Rumor Has It." I've loved all the characters especially the hot, sexy heroes. What a rich character driven romantic series!

Kate Evans, every little (and big) boys' dream of a schoolteacher, and ex-soldier Griffin Reid, wounded by an IED and back home in Sunshine, Idaho for his sister's and her BFF's wedding, have had their eyes on each other for years. The wedding seems to stir up sexy feelings in both of them and quirky, sweet Kate and stoic, tough guy Grid finally explore their feelings for each other. Both have family issues and hard decisions to make.

Like in the other stories, I was glad to catch up on the lives of the characters from the past books. I feel like I know them and they've become friends.

NOTE: This book contains graphic sex scenes and salty language. Be warned. In fact, for the first time in the series, I wish there had been fewer sex scenes and more story.

I've enjoyed all the Animal Magnetism books. I felt a bit jipped after reading this one though. I loved Kate and Grif's chemistry but I feel like with the relationship being all sex and no substance it lacked a good story line. Neither wanted a relationship but every time they saw each other they ended up jumping on each other in bed or the kitchen counter or the entry table or the bed of his truck aaaand so on. Then it's all wrapped up in the very short last chapter and a couple of paragraphs in the Epilogue. Sorry, not one of her best.

I couldn't wait to go back to Sunshine, Idaho. I loved the first three books in the series and couldn't wait to see Holly's brother and best friend get their happy endings. But now that I've finished it I'm disappointed I didn't love it as much as I thought I would.

It had a great beginning and middle.It had a good rhythm and I smiled and laughed in some parts. The thing is...

I felt many things happened in the last pages and they all wrapped up so fast in a way that left me feeling I read an incomplete book. Yeah, the main couple got their HEA but for me it felt kinda… meh.

I was expecting so much more and I would have definitely finished the book way before. I felt the things that happened in the end were unnecessary and a way to add drama to a story that didn't need it.

I'm all for complicated stories but this was a simple story that didn't need complications to make it better, it just make it feel dull.

Still…

It's always a pleasure to read a Jill Shalvis book and visit old favorite characters and even though it wasn't an amazing reading for me, it was not bad either. Though I would recommend the first three books in the series over this
