She is the author of The Ivy Years, an award-winning series set amid the hockey team at an elite Connecticut college. Also, the The Gravity series.

With Elle Kennedy, Sarina is the author of the RITA award winning HIM, and its sequel, US, as well as the WAGs novels.

Sarina also has a new Vermont contemporary romance series, True North. She's also unrolled new hockey novels from Penguin Berkley including Rookie Move.

Sarina enjoys skiing, espresso drinks and the occasional margarita. She lives with her family, eight chickens and more ski gear and hockey equipment than seems necessary.

Bella's book picks up the September following the end of Understatement of the Year. Both Graham and Rikker figure in to the story, as do other hockey team members. You'll find out exactly how they're doing! :)

As for Coach, he's in the background. He retires, and it's not giving too much away to tell you that it's a bigger problem for Bella than for Rikker or Graham!

Thanks for reading. And all will soon be clear!(less)

I was on my way to pick up some chicken feed for my boyfriend, Griff. I don’t mind being sent to the feed store, as long as Griff tells me exactly what to buy. (Who knew there’d be a dozen different kinds of chicken feed? Baby chicks need a dusty grind...
