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 Days in June is a hilarious, romantic, and sexy‑as‑hell story of two writers discovering their second chance at love.

"4.5 ⭐️ I loved this second chance romance about youth, resilience, pain, loss and love. All of the characters are wonderfully complicated. The author handles their challenges so well. There were moments where I laughed out loud and moments where I was deeply touched. Excellent writing."
"This is one of my top favorite books of all time I loved it so much its tragically beautiful the two main characters are authors which is a trope I'm starting to love the story feels so modern it's funny and so sad and real all at the same time it's a vary deep and multi dimensional for it being romance its not one like I've ever read definitely top tier and it does takes place in June and had all the summer feels a great summer read "
"I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book, but the writing style just wasn’t for me. Too many of the millennials trying too hard to make relatable gen z references. The mc’s knew each other for a week doing drugs getting high and drinking and somehow made the best connection ever? I just couldn’t feel their connection "
"“Stop writing about me.” “You first.” Seven days in June was so cute, this was one of my fav YA romances. It was cute and simple, if you’re in a reading slump, read this book. Shane and Eva probably will still love each other in the multiverse, if yk, yk. Tia Williams, please make a movie out of Seven Days in June. You already made “The Perfect Find” roll on out onto Netflix. Shane and Eva definitely deserve their own film. "
