On The Year We Fell Down
Colleen Hoover, bestselling author of Hopeless:
"I absolutely loved it! And I can't wait to read the rest of her books."
Tammara Webber, bestselling author of Easy:
"I not only bought this book and devoured it, I bought - and read - this entire NA series (The Ivy Years) in a WEEK. It is OMG-awesome-NA-at-its-finest."
"Bowen skillfully conveys the roller-coaster emotions of two damaged young adults trying to find their way through tough issues and makes us care deeply about what happens to them. This page-turner will have readers eagerly awaiting Bowen’s next book."
Jane Litte of Dear Author:
"It’s a terrific read, contains everything I love about New Adult and none of the things that irk me. I’ve spent the weekend recommending it and the thing that struck me most was that this wasn’t a story I felt like I had read before which, given how many books I read a year, is rare.
I loved the college setting which was perfect for this book along with the hockey aspect. Neither of the main protagonists play hockey but it’s a huge part of their lives. The virginity scene (which was completely understandable) along with the dildo scene was one of the better, fun, sexy love scenes I’ve read in a while. I had a huge smile on my face in the last half of this book."
Aestas of Aestas Book Blog:
"Ok, you know that amazingly wonderful, heart fluttering feeling you get when you start a book and you just love the set up, and the characters, and everything about it? That was totally the feeling I got here!"
Rita of Snarky Romance Recs:
"I loved this book, i want to hold it up on a cliff, like in The Lion King. It will be a shining beacon of inspiration for romance novelists everywhere."
Mandy of I Read Indie:
"5 Star Review. Bowen has blown me away with this one and her amazing cast of characters and equally amazing storyline. Blown. Away. Gone. It is definitely one I will remember for a long time."

On Coming In From the Cold
Sarah Wendell of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books for Kirkus:
"...the hero and heroine start the story trapped in their cars in a blizzard. HELLO MY CATNIP. Get into my car! These two are into each other, and it's terrific."
Mandi Schreiner of Smexy Books:
"A very well done romance – sexy, hard to take at times, romantic with a great ending too. I think this is Sarina Bowen’s debut – will definitely be keeping an eye on her."
Mary Ann Rivers, author of The Story Guy and Live:
"A deeply romantic story that warms with slow-burn eroticism and genuine insight into loss and love. Sarina Bowen's debut glows with intelligence and a lovely sweetness."
Victoria James, Bestselling Author:
Sizzling and seductive, with just the right amount of sugar and spice! Sarina Bowen writes a hot hero with a heart of gold!
On The Understatement of the Year
