A REESE WITHERSPOON BOOK CLUB PICK
THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

'A sexy, modern love story to start the summer off right' REESE WITHERSPOON

'A smart, sexy testament to Black joy ... I absolutely loved it' JODI PICOULT



Seven days to fall in love, fifteen years to forget, and seven days to get it all back again...

Eva Mercy is a single mother and bestselling erotica writer who is feeling pressed from all sides. Shane Hall is a reclusive, enigmatic, award-winning novelist, who, to everyone's surprise, shows up unexpectedly in New York.

When Shane and Eva meet at a literary event, sparks fly, raising not only their buried traumas, but also the eyebrows of the Black literati. What no one knows is that fifteen years earlier, teenage Eva and Shane spent one crazy, torrid week madly in love. While they may be pretending not to know each other, they can't deny their chemistry - or the fact that they've been secretly writing to each other in their books through the years.

Over the next seven days, amidst a steamy Brooklyn summer, Eva and Shane reconnect - but Eva's wary of the man who broke her heart, and wants him out of the city so her life can return to normal. Before Shane 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *
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 *

“Not quite what I wanted”

A zippy, fast-paced romance exploring Black identity--I wasn't quite expecting this to be such a conventional romance novel and would have liked it to be more literary.

“Rom-com and contemporary in one!”

‘Don’t fight. Write.’

This is a fantastic book! It’s Black. It’s hilarious. Romantic. Painful. Dark at times. A famous erotica author. An addicted literary writer. And a second chance love.

This is a rom-com and a... More
