Meg's Review:

I loved Mason and Ellie. They were wonderful Characters and this fun story had me hooked. From the start Ellie had Mason's heart. He knew that first moment he saw here that she was different. Ellie has had a hard road. One video on a cell phone and her life is thrown in shambles. I really enjoyed watching this story unfold and these characters develop a relationship. They were very well-developed and super relatable. Well you know what I mean. They had some big obstacles to get through in this book from media to emotional. Elisabeth Grace did a great job making you fall in love with this world. I loved the support characters and it definitely left me wanting more. I like that we got a small peek into Mason's life, but I hope that we get more in the next book, or another book. I would like to see more of that side of the story. I look forward to book two.

Synopsis:

Rumor Has It. ***THIS BOOK CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE*** 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… ***Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.***
