Seven days to fall in love, fifteen years to forget, and seven days to get it all back again…
When Eva Mercy, a single mother and bestselling erotica writer, and the enigmatic, award-winning novelist Shane Hall meet at a literary event in New York, sparks fly. But what no one knows is that fifteen years earlier, teenage Eva and Shane spent one week together, madly in love. While they may pretend to be strangers, they can’t deny their chemistry.
Over the next seven days, amidst a steamy Brooklyn summer, Eva and Shane reconnect. But Eva is wary of the man who broke her heart and wants Shane out of the city so her life can return to normal. Before he disappears, though, she needs a few questions answered . . .
With its keen observations of creative life in America today, as well as the joys and complications of being a mother and a daughter, Seven Days in June is a hilarious, romantic, and sexy-as-hell story of two writers discovering their second chance at love.

A sexy, modern love story to start the summer off right * Reese Witherspoon * A smart, sexy testament to Black joy, to the well of strength from which women draw, and to tragic romances that mature into second chances. I absolutely loved it * Jodi Picoult * Tia Williams conjures a seductive fantasy - rich friendships, star-crossed lovers, artistic fulfilment. But Williams is writing realism, exploring personal pain, family entanglements, and the negotiation of Black identity in a world defined by whiteness. The result isn't escapism (though the book is a delight) but a vision of life as it truly is: complications and difficulties punctuated by profound joy * Rumaan Alam * A novel with a delicious plot, compelling characters, and all of the pop cultural references my heart desires. Seven Days in June is nothing short of a good time. It's funny, thoughtful and its protagonist Eva Mercy is my new favourite pretend writer * Michael Arceneaux * Its deliciously witty dialogue, fully realised characters and deft handling of love, race and second-chances will stay with you long after summer * Zoella Book Club * A tour de force . . . A hugely satisfying romance that is electrifying and alive * Kirkus * Grab a fan before reading this one, because it really heats up * Good Housekeeping US * One of the most anticipated romance novels of the summer, SEVEN DAYS IN JUNE is a story of love found, lost, and found again. Eva and Shane's story gets steamy, so be sure to read by the water so you can cool off * Oprah Daily * A captivating love story * Melan Mag * Bold, romantic and sharply drawn, Seven Days in June will scorch your synapses in the best possible ways * Daily Record * A novel with memorable characters and an original plot * Independent * This hilarious, romantic and incredibly sexy novel is a definite page-turner of a messy love story * Hello! *
