Book Tour Review: A Vicious Rumor


We’re playing a dangerous game, she and I.

A Vicious Rumor, the dark and intense bully standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Ivy Wild, is coming May 27th!


The first time I met Tyson Stone, he gave me a bloody nose.

He didn’t mean to hit me, he was fighting this other kid, but let's just say I'd take the pain of his fist over his cruelness any day of the week.

Five years after this incident, and I'm in his shark tank. 

His domain. His kingdom. His prep school. 

Freefalling for him is a recipe for disaster, but that's what happens nonetheless. 

Then he starts pushing me away for no reason, but there's one thing he forgets. 

I'm not one of his disposable flings. I'm worthy, I'm a catch, and if he doesn't realize it...well, then his arch-enemy will. 

Dating the guy he hates the most could backfire.

But I've always been good at playing with matches. 


My life is a series of calamities strung together by blood and bad press.

Wherever I go, trouble follows.

Now, normally I'm not a charitable guy, but when I pass on Lily White's delectable body, it is entirely for her own good. 

Call me an altruistic jerk, but I just don't want to see her hurt.

That's until she starts dating the guy I loathe more than anything else in the world. 

That's when all bets are off. 

We’re playing a dangerous game, she and I.

The rumors are starting to swirl, and so are some dangerous thoughts about what I can do to her. 

Lily White is out of my league,

but apparently, that’s not going to stop me.

My Review

Who doesn't love an angsty romance? I know I am a sucker for them; especially when you have two characters that you know are meant for each other. The physical, emotional, and mental connection that Lily and Tyson share is strong. A Vicious Rumor will have romance readers swooning for Lily and Tyson. Although Tyson may come off at times as a bully, he is like a diamond. Rough exterior but a vibrant soul inside. Lily was able to see this about Tyson. As I was so invested in these two, this was a quick read for me. Fans of Ivy will really enjoy this book. Here are a couple of my favorite passages. When Lily asks Tyson if he believes in souls. He says: "I do. I believe that sometimes when two people meet, their souls connect without their physical selves knowing. It's the type of connection that doesn't need physical touch to grow." "I think that's what happened between you and me. Something deep down in you spoke to something deep down in me." There is this last line from the book where Lily says: "Together we are stronger and more beautiful in our broken places."
