Hannah Orenstein is the senior dating editor at Elite Daily and the author of three novels.
Head Over Heels (Atria Books, 2020) is a rom-com about a former elite gymnast who, reeling from a breakup, returns to the sport as a coach to an aspiring Olympian.
Love at First Like (Atria Books, 2019) is a rom-com about a jewelry store owner who accidentally leads her 100,000 Instagram followers to believe she is engaged… and then has to find a fake fiancé to play the part.
