Product Description

“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+***

RUMOR HAS IT is the first instalment in Elisabeth Grace’s contemporary, new adult LIMELIGHT romance series. This is hip-hop star Mason Nash and media graduate Ellie Wagner’s story. Working a secretarial job at a local real estate office in Virginia, Ellie’s boss demands that she head over to the beach front mansion where the latest renter has misplaced the key. What Ellie never thought was to find herself falling through the bathroom window at the feet of a gorgeous man with beautiful eyes.

The focus of the storyline is on the building relationship between Ellie and Mason. Never having been a fan of hip-hop music, Ellie has no idea who or what is Mason Nash but a trip to Texas to visit Mason’s mother will show Ellie the truth. Along with Mason’s fame come the usual paparazzi, intrusive questions and a team of people who have no need for Ellie in Mason’s life.

The relationship between Ellie and Mason is one of instant attraction, romantic seduction and quick to develop. Mason is only in town for a month of R&R but as the end draws near Mason wants Ellie in his life for a much longer time. Behind the scenes there are people hoping to pull Mason and Ellie apart and with a few well placed clues, Ellie will find herself alone and wondering where it all went wrong.

The secondary characters are colorful and plenty including Ellie’s friend and co-worker Katie and her BFF Skye-Skye’s story will be told in the next instalment. We are introduced to Mason’s manager whose motives are questionable from the very start; and a few of the people who work behind the scenes in the music industry. Both Mason and Ellie’s dysfunctional families will play a role in their lives and we will see how their interaction has shaped the people they are today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it Dec 27 2013
By Jennifer Zavala - Published on
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent story, likable characters, but "fade to" scenes were a let down Dec 15 2013
By Book Babe - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
3.5 Stars
Mason and Ellie's romance starts when Ellie literally falls into the bathroom at the beach house he's renting from her employer's real estate agency. Mason is a hip hop star; Ellie a recent college graduate looking for a job in her field. They both feel an instant attraction and it goes from there.

Mason and Ellie are a cute compatible pair despite coming from different lifestyles. They are both down-to-earth likable characters who see each other for who they truly are, not the media's persona, so you root for them to make it work, although they don't ooze chemistry. The love scenes that were there were okay in the beginning, but as the book progressed they were reduced to far too many "fade to" scenes or it already happened/brushed over scenes. Overall, you felt that the couple connected and were dedicated to each other which is always nice, but steamy hook ups were more of a vague mention rather than detailed.

Alternating 1st person POV, which I enjoy; however it would have been nice if the person "talking" would have been identified for that section because it wasn't always every other one, and sometimes you had to be a few lines into that chapter or section to know who was telling it.

On thing that really bugged me: Ellie has the repeated problem of being tagged in unflattering videos and photos on Facebook. She's supposed to have a degree in social media/communications and yet she doesn't know how to change her privacy settings so people can't tag her without her permission??? Come on!

Spoilerish: The story/plot was decent, and it was nice that for once in a romance story they weren't trying to be split up by an ex-love or wannabe love. Their drama comes more from the power of the media and the demands of his career. HEA with a second book on one of the supporting characters to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun & Steamy New Adult Contemporary Romance! Feb. 17 2014
By Stephanie Ward - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
'Rumor Has It' is a New Adult contemporary romance that follows lead characters Ellie Wagner and Mason Nash as their two very different lives collide and their worlds are turned completely upside down. Ellie has just graduated college when an embarrassing video of her and her ex goes up on the Internet - which basically ruins her life by preventing her from getting a good job and being seen as a slut. That's how Ellie finds herself moving back in with her mom and her latest husband and wondering how her life went so wrong. Enter Mason Nash - the newest hip hop music star who's rolling in money and fame. What will happen when Ellie's dream guy is always in the spotlight - the last place she wants to be?

This was a fun and steamy New Adult romance with deeper issues mixed into the story. Ellie is a great leading lady for the book. She's smart and determined, but she's also incredibly flawed - which I think makes her all the more realistic and easy to relate to. She makes a stupid mistake (the video with her boyfriend) which then takes on a life of its own and puts her in some bad positions. We've all been in a situation like that before, which made me love Ellie all the more. Mason is the standard man candy of the story - gorgeous, rich, famous, etc. But underneath his public persona is a completely different guy - one who is sweet, kind, and romantic. I liked that the author put two sides to Mason's character, because most people do the same thing in life - even if they aren't famous. We all wear masks in front of others to hide things about ourselves, which made me like Mason more along with giving the story an added depth. Among the fun story line, where Ellie and Mason meet and their relationship grows, there are some serious topics thrown in that makes the reader really think about things. The book deals with mistakes and their consequences, believing in yourself, doing what you believe is right, and (of course) love. I definitely liked watching Ellie and Mason's relationship develop - especially the steamy parts - and to see where they would end up by the end of the book. I'm glad that this is the first book in a series - there's so many great ways that the author can take the story and I can't wait to see what happens next. Definitely recommended for fans of New Adult contemporary romance!!

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I was pretty much sucked into Ellie and Mason's story from their first meeting. Not only was it unusual, but it was laugh-out-loud funny. Ellie is a sweet, kind-hearted woman that doesn't realize her worth or beauty. After being publicly humiliated by a viral video, she tries to avoid anything that will draw attention to her.

She meets the sexy Mason Nash by chance and their chemistry is immediate and through the roof. What Ellie doesn't realize is that Mason is very much a public figure and being with him is going to put her right back into the spotlight.

I really love the way this author writes; I enjoyed the dual point of view (POV), the sex scenes were INSANE, and she literally made me laugh out loud. I can't wait to read more from this new author.

I give this book 4.5 bookies


As Stacia said above, I too was completely blown away by this story and finished it in 1 sitting. I am a huge celebrity stalker, so this book was totally up my alley. Ellie is just so darn sweet but had such an unfortunate thing happen to her that completely messed with her self confidence and just made her second guess everything. Ever since her video went viral, and honestly it could've been so much worse, she has been the brunt of job refusals, mean comments, and just all around heinous crap. I just wanted to grab her, hug her, and let her know everything will eventually blow over.
Enter hottie Mason Nash (with a name like that, how can he not be a hottie?) and wow did things blow over. I absolutely loved their first meeting. Elisabeth did such a good job writing that scene that I could totally visualize it. Mason has also had to deal with a lot of crap in the last few years, mainly paparazzi, fabricated stories for celeb magazines (yes, I am guilty of owning all celeb magazines, so I actually feed the beast), and also his family, namely his mother. I fell into some serious deep lust for Mason. He was everything that I look for in a BBF.
I agree with everything that Stacia says above about the author and her writing abilities. To be honest, I am shocked that this is the author's debut book. I am so excited for all of you to enjoy Ellie and Mason's love story.

I give this 4.5 bookies as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me June 15 2014
By Danielle @ What Danielle Did Next - Published on

This is a rant...You have been warned!

Sigh...where to begin? Rumor Has It started off fairly promising. Ellie is like a lot of typical 20-somethings (and 30-somethings!), has graduated and due to the downturn is working in a job that is in no way related to her field. The downturn and the fact that an embarrassing clip of her and her ex boyfriend has gone viral on YouTube making Ellie a pariah in the world of media she aches to be employed in. Living at home and working in a real estate job is not ideal for this ambitious graduate especially when her boss is a bit of a butt-head. When Ellie is dispatched by said butt-head to deliver a set of keys to the beach-house a VIP client is renting her day goes from bad to worse when she ends up stuck halfway in a bathroom window with her skirt hanging from the ledge and her backside in the face of Hip-Hop’s biggest star Mason Nash. Do you even have to guess how the rest of this goes? BAM instant attraction and it is one drama filled page after another...

Mason Nash needs a break from the drama of celebrity life (Boo! Poor rich baby!) and so has ended up in...I wanna say Virginia? Anyway his welcome to the state is an eyeful of Ellie’s butt (if you want to know why she’s hanging out with her ass on display read the book because I can’t even...) and naturally when she turns around he’s captivated by her stunning looks, her snarky charm and the fact that she has no idea who he is. FINALLY he can be himself and someone can get to know his soul! Huzzah! Anyway they get together and it’s all fun and games apart from a drunken mom, several misunderstandings and over-reactions and a gun comes into play somewhere because god forbid there wasn’t enough ridiculous drama.
The book is chock-full of back and forth between the two, ZERO transitions, the plot just jumps wildly from one escapade to the next and of course there’s the insta-love. They sleep together once and Mason is declaring that life is better with her and when he has to leave for like a day because he HAS A JOB Ellie is all “Wah, I can’t believe he’s leaving me JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER MAN!!!” Woman! it’s been like a week!

I could go on but I won’t; needless to say I did not enjoy this book and if you don’t like a ton of drama with a choppy plot then you won’t either. Oh and btw the video that apparently got millions of hits on YouTube? Lamest video ever...and now I’m done! Can’t wait for book two!! Yay! O_o
