In WHILE WE WERE DATING, Anna Gardiner is on a mission: to make herself a household name, and this ad campaign will be a great distraction while she waits to hear if she’s booked her next movie. However, she didn’t expect Ben Stephens to be her biggest distraction. She knows mixing business with pleasure never works out, but why not indulge in a harmless flirtation? Ben Stephens has never bothered with serious relationships. He has plenty of casual dates to keep him busy, family drama he’s trying to ignore, and his advertising job to focus on. When Ben lands a huge ad campaign with Anna, however, it’s hard to keep it purely professional.

When the opportunity comes to turn their real-life fling into something more for the Hollywood spotlight, will Ben be content to play the background role in Anna’s life and leave when the cameras stop rolling? Or could he be the leading man she needs to craft their own Hollywood ending?

Guillory is the New York Times bestselling author of six romance novels, including The Wedding Date and The Proposal. Her work has appeared in O, The Oprah Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Bon Appetit, and Time. She lives in Oakland, California.

Edim is the founder of Well-Read Black Girl, a book club and digital platform that promotes Black literature and sisterhood. She is also the author of Well-Read Black Girl: Finding Our Stories, Discovering Ourselves, and won the Innovator’s Award at the 2017 Los Angeles Times Book Prizes.
