5 “SCIENCE FACTS” STARS!!!!“That,” he said, pointing at her. “There.”She closed her eyes. “You know what it is.”Yeah, he knew. He leaned into her. “Say it.”“Chemistry,” she whispered, and blush. “I happen to be a bit of an expert on the subject.”Once again I have fallen.hard. I have fallen deeply in love with yet another wonderfully crafted book by Jill Shalvis. Rumor Has It is the fourth book in her Animal Magnetism series and I dare say that it was my favorite. Plea [...]
4 ½ stars – Contemporary RomanceThis was such a cute, fun read! I haven’t laughed this hard reading a book in a while. I really enjoyed it!Broody Special Ops soldier Griffin and sweet, spunky, slightly nerdy science teacher Kate are an entertaining pair and share lots of witty, flirtatious banter. There are several great secondary characters, especially Griffin’s best friend, Adam, and Kate’s adorable, smart, geeky, super hero costume wearing seven-year-old brother, Tommy, who nearly st [...]
Rumor Has It was a sweet, feel good romance set in a small town. A romance like this is the equivalent to literary comfort food for me, and Jill Shalvis definitely satisfied my cravings. Kate is a fourth-grade teacher and sweet and giving person who takes care of everyone but herself. Her family relies heavily on her after her mother’s death and her father’s fall into depression. He’s finally improving but, finds she finds it hard to let go of the control. Because of this, Kate’s put gra [...]
So basically I think this is my new favorite from Jill. By now, you're all familiar with my Jill Shalvis love. At least I think you are. The one thing I can count on with her books is that I'm entertained. Are they formulaic? Absolutely. But I don't care one bit when I am completely engrossed in the story and the characters. Rumor Has It is book 4 in the Animal Magnetism series and we're quickly introduced to Kate Evans. She takes care of everyone, her father, her younger brother and sister and [...]

He’s recently been medically discharged after an IED exploded by him and scarred him badly. He’s back in his hometown for Holly (his sister) and Adam’s wedding and to also recuperate and regroup; trying to figure out what he wants to do next. He’s never truly noticed Kate, but when she literally falls at his feet, he notic [...]
Loved, Loved, Loved this book! Griff oh yum. I think he's my new favorite Jill Shalvis hero. I just adore a broken-wing hero who is still all badass Alpha and totally capable, but also really kind. Griff was the whole package. And seriously, I just kept laughing out loud!A must read for anyone who enjoys fast-paced, humorous, sexy contemporary novels!
Review posted: Happily Ever After - ReadsBlog rating: A-I was hooked from the start because Kate is simply adorable. Right off the bat, we’re witness to her hectic life where she’s a second grade teacher, she takes care of everyone, specifically her dad who’s recovering from addiction and her siblings: a younger teenage sister and sweetheart of a little brother. Kate’s also been putting off accepting a scholarship that would put her out of state for year. She’s already turned this oppo [...]
It’s no secret that I adore Jill Shalvis. She is the queen of Contemporary Romance and with RUMOR HAS IT, Shalvis shows you exactly why.Are you looking for some laughs? RUMOR HAS IT could possibly be the funniest book Shalvis has written so far.Are you looking for a sexy scarred hero who is a little tortured? Shalvis delivers that in one hot package; Special Ops solider Griffin Reid returns to Sunshine, Idaho to recover from an injury that gives him intense headaches.Are you looking for a like [...]
This is a lot charming about this romacne. I love the heroine and her nervous science facts. It is why I bought the book and I has not disappointed in that fun. I adore her family--especially her brother. I love her dad and her crazed teenage sister. I love that the heroine has a dream that ia all her own that she is struggling to balence with everything she loves. The hero and romacne are good but not as good as the other parts of the story. II will say that the HEA is th best. If you are looki [...]
Rumor Has it Jill ShalvisBeing a huge Jill Shalvis fan, and my favorite of her series being Animal Magnetism, I was so excited to read this novel. It was everything I hoped for and more. Kate Evans is an amazing woman. She is a second grade teacher in Sunshine Idaho, acts like a mother to her two siblings, and even takes care of her Dad. Most amazing of all, she is best friends with her former boyfriend Ryan and rides with him to school everyday. Ryan is the principal at the elementary school . [...]
★★★★½ The audio is nicely narrated by Karen White.

Rumor Has It4.5 StarsLove comes when you least expect it. Griffin Reid returns home to Sunshine, Idaho to recuperate from an injury and is caught unaware by his attraction to his sister’s best friend, elementary school teacher, Kate Evans. Kate has had a crush on Griffin since childhood and decides to seize the moment, but is their newfound romance a short-term fling or something that will last a lifetime…Griffin and Kate are a perfect match. Her sexy, snarky sweetness counterbalances his da [...]
Shalvis has penned another winner. This is probably my favorite of all her Animal Magnetism books. I loved Griffin and Kate. But especially Griffin.I definitely suggest you go preorder this book. Like, right now.
Kate has spent her whole life putting everyone else first, she may live on her own but she is constantly round at her Dad's house taking care of him and her younger siblings and even though she has been offered a scholarship to the graduate training course of her dreams for several years in a row she's never felt able to go and leave her family behind to take care of themselves. For once she wants to do something just for herself and the return of her best friend's sexy older brother Griffin giv [...]
Shalvis never fails to make me laugh while creating romance that lasts. This return to her Animal Magnetism series captured me heart and soul. The picturesque scenery that she creates for the area is the perfect backdrop for this emotional, at times turbulent, story that really packs a punch. Since we first met Griffin and Kate they’ve both called to me in different ways. Kate’s the kind of girl that I find easy to relate to. I can understand being shy, staying at home, and having way too mu [...]
Two-haiku review:Second grade teacherIs maid of honor for friendFriend's brother comes backMore great charactersLoved her random science factsThis one made me smileRe-reading series November 2015
**Find this & other reviews at The Demon Librarian**Rumor Has It was my first Jill Shalvis novel, and after reading it, all I can say is, "More, please!"I seriously, seriously enjoyed this book. It's a light, sexy read with a perfect balance of humor and emotion, and it won me over so completely, I have already added all the other books in the series to my to-be-read list. Aaaaand I have added the first book in each of her other series too! Overkill? Maybe, but hey, what can I say? I know wh [...]
I love Jill Shalvis. Seriously, I want to be BFF's which her. Every single one of her books makes me laugh, swoon, and melt, and this book was no exception. Jill, hands down, writes the best heroes ever. There has not been one book of hers that I didn't completely crush on the hero throughout the story. Her heroines are believable as well, talking about things as addictions to cookies, potato chips, and the REAL things women talk about. She has a way of tugging at the heart strings too with fant [...]
The fourth book in the Animal Magnetism series by Jill Shalvis. Griffin (Grif) Reid is back in Sunshine, Idaho for his sister's wedding and also to recuperate from injuries sustained overseas. His military days are over and he needs to decide what to do with his life. There he sees Kate Evans, his sister's best friend. Staying in Sunshine was never really an option for him but now just maybeJill Shalvis' books are like candy to me. So sweet and yummy! Love the characters and, well, everything!
Oh, I loved it,loved, it loved it! Did I mention I loved it? LOL Sweet romance, sexy hero, engaging heroine, some cute pooches, fun friends, small town - what's not to like? I always marvel at how the sex scenes can be so sweet, yet so hot at the same time. Really takes a talented writer to do that, and Jill Shalvis has that talent! I sincerely hope there will be more in this series.
Sweet, wonderful story about big brother Griffin and his sister's best friend, Kate. He's known her forever and he makes her spout meaningless factoids whenever he comes near. Jill Shalvis has an amazing ability to write characters I want to get to know in real life.
Definitely one of my favorite Jill Shalvis books. I finished this in about 24 hours. I couldn't put it down.
I laughed, I giggled, I snorted, I was moved - what more can you ask for?
Sweet, fun, light and steamy escape - not particularly deep or original, but an excellent escape non the less.
Very good book. I've been looking forward to this story since the scene in the previous book (Rescue My Heart) when Kate burst in on Holly while she was having a Skype conversation with her brother Griffin. The part where she's hiding because she stripped off her shirt before she knew he could see her was hysterical. It was obvious that she's had a thing for him for a long time, and it seems like he is looking too. At the start of this book, Griffin has come back to Sunshine for Holly's wedding. [...]
Review originally posted on Keep Calm & Read RomanceDo you love contemporary romances set in small towns? Do you love a hero that’s a bit damaged? Do you love sugary sweet heroines that bring the laughs? Well, I think that Jill Shalvis’ Rumor Has It is just the book you’re looking for!Special Ops soldier Griffin "Griff" Reid is finally returning to his small hometown of Sunshine, Idaho, to attend his younger sister's wedding. What Griff doesn't tell his family and friends is that he's [...]
I was so excited to get another ARC by Jill Shalvis! She is my go-to feel good read and again, she didn't disappoint!Rumor has It takes us to the Reid Ranch in Sunshine, Idaho for the wedding of Holly and Adam (Rescue My Heart). It's there that hometown girl (and Holly's best friend) Kate Evans reunites with childhood crush and brother of the bride Griffin Reid and as they say, sparks fly.Kate Evans is an all around good girl. She takes care of her dad, hormonal teenage sister, her somewhat diff [...]
I was lucky enough to be approved for a review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. I'm a huge fan of Jill Shalvis and count down until each of her new books comes out. Luckily, we had many new books this year.I love the Animal Magnetism books so much. As soon as I finished reading Rescue My Heart last year, I was ready for Kate and Griffin's story. Let me just say it was more than worth the wait! In fact, while Ford has stayed my favorite Jill Shalvis hero for a couple of yea [...]
