Book Description

***A New Adult Contemporary Romance***

“Rumor Has It is quite possibly one of the best New Adult debuts I’ve read–ever. I loved every hip-hop minute of it and can’t wait to read the rest of the series! I devoured it, from laugh out loud funny moments to hot Mason scenes, I was begging for more by the time I finished reading. I can’t wait to see what more this talented author has up her sleeve.”–Rachel Van Dyken, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

“Sexy and sweet, Mason and Ellie are a couple you want to root for.”–Monica Murphy, NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author

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…

One-click now to see how Ellie and Mason navigate life in the limelight!

***Due to mature sexual content and strong language this novel is intended for those readers 18+***


Editorial Reviews

Review

"This story was light-hearted but surprisingly multi-layered, funny but scrumptiously sexy, showing us that sometimes the most addictive books come to us when you least expect them. Under a bubbly veil of upbeat dialogues and palpable chemistry between the characters, lies a charming tale of finding what counts the most in life and fighting to keep it. This book was the perfect balance of humor, drama, sizzle and romance, all nicely wrapped up into an entertaining story that I was unable to put down."
- Natasha Is A Book Junkie
"Mason Nash melted me in this book. I loved, loved, loved this story. I haven't read one like it. Rapper meets hometown girl. It's original, I enjoyed Elisabeth's writing. It's a re-read. Yep!!" 
- Schmexy Girl Book Blog
"I was completely blown away by this story and finished it in one sitting. I am shocked that this is the author's debut book. I really love the way this author writes; I enjoyed the dual POV, the sex scenes were INSANE, and she literally made me laugh out loud."
- Three Girls And A Book Obsession
A "rock star romance" with a unique plot, this book had me hooked from page one, though it's the end of the first chapter where I was laughing out loud. The pacing was perfect and I would have read it in one sitting if I could have...darn life kept getting in the way! I loved the author's style of writing and thought that the dual point-of-view was particularly effective in this story. All that being said it was the characters that really shined in this story. Not only did I love the way they stayed true to who they were and what they wanted throughout the entire book, but the dialogue between them was fantastic."

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it December 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow. This book had everything including a non cliffhanger ending. I liked Ellie as the female lead, she was independent and actually real, not wishy washy and making assumptions all the time. I've read a few books where I just want to strangle the heroine and tell her to just shut up and listen to Christ's sake. I loved Mason, I wasn't sure how I was going to picture a white rapper but who I kept picturing while reading this book was Macklemore and that made everything okay. Mason was sweet funny and was a man whore before we got to know him in this book but I'm glad the story didn't go on and on about his male whoriness.
Overall the story was great, I couldn't put it down. I would definitely read the next book by this author. Again I reiterate that this story didn't have a cliffhanger like so many books now a days have which was refreshing. Read it you'll like it!

I was given an ARC by the author for an honest review.

Ellie Wagner isn't doing all that well these days. A humiliating moment with an ex winds up on you tube and goes viral. She's living with her mother because although she's a 25 year old college graduate she can't find a well paying job. She runs into the very sexy Mason during an errand she has to run for her current dead end job, and there's an instant chemistry and attraction, but little does she know that Mason is Mason Nash, hip-hop superstar. More fame is exactly the opposite of what she wants but she can't seem to walk away from Mason, even though her time with him appears to be limited since he's only in town for a short while.

Most celebrity love stories seem fake and contrived, but Mason (aside from being hot as hell) is sweet, shockingly down to earth, and truly burns for Ellie. I really liked Ellie. She was a tough cookie, even with all her setbacks and her flighty mother, she's still strong enough to go after what she wants. Both have reservations about their new and undefined relationship, but there is no annoying cat and mouse game or playing coy. It was so great to read about a couple that actually seemed real about their fears and insecurities. Ellie and Mason had a strong and believable connection, along with explosive chemistry that gave us scenes that were at the same time both sweet and scorchingly hot. But you get the feeling something is going to go very wrong soon, and hope they're both strong enough to fight for each other.

This was a fabulous writing debut from Elisabeth Grace. She has a flawless writing style and creates characters you can fall in love with (I'm still swooning over Mason). I look forward to the next book in the series and hope to see more of Ellie and Mason!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful debut! December 22, 2013
By MKV
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first line of Rumor Has It made me do one of those laughs where everyone in the room looks at you like your nuts- or wants to read what you're reading. Love the voice of this new author, the surprises, the PPs, the originality. After a year of putting down a ton of books after the first couple of chapters, it was so nice to get hooked on this book from the beginning. Loved reading the story in first person. Can't agree with the review that stated it was tough to tell which character was leading a chapter - I found it to be pretty clear because the 2 main character's personalities were distinct as well as what was happening in the section. First in a series? Yes, I'll be back for more and looking forward to other works from this author.

Rumor Has It
By Elisabeth Grace - Author
FIVE STAR MUST READ

Wow... this book was fantastic. Seriously I rank this on my top five books of 2013.

Ellie is a normal girl who is trying her hardest to get out of the spotlight. She has been perceived as a slut and a gold digger all over a partial video aired on you tube. She has lost her dream job hasn't been able to catch a break and all she wants is to hide. Then she falls flat on her face in front of the man of her dreams.
Mason Nash is looking for some peace and quiet. He has been working nonstop for the last five years and just wants a break. He isn't looking for love... love is something he doesn't want at all until he hears a thump coming from his bathroom and finds the beautiful, funny Ellie Wagner. Whats even better is Ellie has no idea that Mason Nash is a famous hip hop artist.

Will their love last when Ellie is now thrown in front of the cameras again? Will they be able to survive the drama that will come?
This story honestly had me smiling from page one. I couldn't put this down and read it within two hours. It had it all. Drama, love, sexual tension and sweet banter between Ellie and Mason. There are times this story had me laughing out loud and also times that I had tears in my eyes. This story is awesome I absolutely cant say it enough that this book is fantastic and a A MUST READ. Add this to your TBR list and one click it today.

Thank you Elisabeth Grace for your wonderful work!!! ** HALO

More About the Author

Welcome! I'm Elisabeth Grace, or El if you prefer, and I write New Adult Contemporary Romance.

I'd been an avid reader my entire life, but when I discovered romance novels during my first pregnancy I was hooked! Not sure if it was the hormones or the lack of a life that was headed my way once my daughter was born, but since then I've been devouring several romance books a week. I love nothing more than reading about some serious alpha males and a happily ever after.

Things you should know about me...

I live outside Toronto, Canada...eh. (Yes, it's true. We Canadians say 'eh' A LOT.)

I'm a wife and mommy to two small children which I refer to as Little Miss and Mr. Magoo.

I own one cat spawned by the devil. Seriously. He's as cute as they come but you've never met a meaner feline. In retrospect we should have named him, Lucifer. I have the scars to prove it.

I believe there's no such thing as too much chocolate. Or popcorn. Or bread. Or potatoes. Yes, you guessed it...I'm a sugar and carb addict.

I hate running. Always have, always will. Unless David Gandy's in the vicinity you won't find me doing it. Ever. Not sure who David Gandy is and think you might want to become a Gandy Girl like me? Google him. You can thank me later.

I'm a LOVER of all music. The 1200+ songs on my IPod can attest to the variety of my musical tastes. Hubby and I try to travel to a different music festival every year and are regular concert goers.

My name is Elisabeth and I like reality TV. There I admitted it and that's the first step, right? Yes, I'm a writer and I see the need for scripted shows, but sometimes there's just something so entertaining about watching one Real Housewife lose it on another one. I could listen to Cochran's diatribe on his fellow castaways for hours.

Of the four of us that make up my family, three of us are Leo's. Let's say it together...DRAMA!

I may be the world's worst cook. My poor children. Unless Daddy's cooking they know not to expect much.

I write every night after my kids are in bed until the wee hours of the morning. This wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that I have always been an early-bird-catches-the-worm kind-of girl, so 5:00am comes early. Sleep is over-rated, I say.

If you are a lover of romance novels, steamy bedroom scenes and alpha males than you may enjoy my stories! :)

I LOVE talking with fellow readers about books! There's nothing better than discovering your next favorite read because someone recommended it to you! If you're the same I'd encourage you to reach out to me via one of my social media links so we can chat!

Happy Reading!

Best,
El
