Review ~ Rumor Has It (Limelight, #1) by Elisabeth Grace

Rumor Has It (Limelight, #1)ebook downloaded for free via Amazon

Release Date: December 2nd 2013

Publisher: Self-published


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…

My Opinion

This was another sweet read that surprised me seeing as I downloaded it for free on Amazon. The story kept me entertained and I found it hard to get on with things I needed to do when I still had a bit left to read.

Rumour Has It is a cute read. I was great for lounging around in the sun with its mostly light-hearted story line and its fast-paced plot. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was surprised by how well it kept my attention and connected with me. For the most part I liked the characters and a lot of the situations had me grinning.

I thought Mason was a nice guy. Unlike the normally dominant rockstar I find in these books, he was surprisingly chilled and laid back--except for the family drama. As a hip-hop star he didn't come with all of the preconceived notions I attach to these types of books even though he had gone through a man-whore stage in his fame. Similarly, I liked Ellie. I respected her for her loyalty and thought she fit him well.

My only issue was things between them as a couple did move pretty quick. I would have liked their first kiss to have been delayed longer and for the tension to build. I also wasn't really a fan of the ending. I knew something had to happen, but Mason's trust dissolved so quickly even after what Ellie does for him.

Anyway, overall this was a good read. It kept me engaged and entertained and I'll most probably read more by this author.
