Publisher Description

The instant New York Times bestseller and Reese Witherspoon book club pick is "a heady combination of book love and between-the-sheets love.” (Ruth Ware)

“Tia Williams’s book is 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, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Two Ways and Small Great Things

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

Eva Mercy is a single mom 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 in New York.

When Shane and Eva meet unexpectedly at a literary event, sparks fly, raising not only their buried traumas, but 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 Daysin June is a hilarious, romantic, and sexy-as-hell story of two writers discovering their second chance at love.

Expressionless Face“I wanted to love this but just didn't 🫠 it was really well written but i feel like it was just to ~*deep*~ and dark for me. It had heavier themes then I usually read, especially in a romance book. It made me kinda dread picking it up again because i didnt wanna read something depressing. I really like Eva and Audre and their relationship, and i loved Shane. The ending didn't do it for me.... I feel like killing of Ty was completely unnecessary. Idk it just wasnt my fave and im sad about it.”

Slightly Smiling Face“I’m sad this book was on my TBR that long. I LOVED it. I loved the characters. I loved them as teenagers and I love them now. Audre was precious. Ty was representative of so many. Touched my heart. I loved their love story. I loved the quippiness of so many characters. I loved the authors and that social circle. I loved how they showed an invisible disability and how absolutely life crushing that can be. I just loved it all honestly!”

Slightly Smiling Face“First of all, wow! I cannot believe that this book came out two years ago and I just read it this year! I came across this book on Instagram. The cover had me sold. I must warn you…once you start reading the book, you won’t be able to put it down. This is one of the best romantic/ chaotic love stories I’ve ever read. Tia Williams is definitely one of my new favorite authors! 🤍✨”
