Summary

Seven days to fall in love, 15 years to forget and seven days to get it all back again....

Eva Mercy is a single mother and best-selling 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 15 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.

People say it’s black joy but it’s black truth

I’ve seen many reviews that say this story is about black joy. I wouldn’t say that, there is joy, but there is also honest depths of emotion, while we journey into the discovery of self of our amazing characters. We spend time learning, battles of loneliness vs Love and honestly I hope this book brings about more generational Triumphs. And audre reminds me of so many amazing young people I meet everyday it’s so beautiful to have a story that spans living generations of amazing women, and from a story about writers. This was special I could stop listening.

The audio was amazing, and I love little Audre coming to life. I just made sense

Thank you

Cheesy and cringeworthy at times

I think the best thing about this book was how well it depicted creole culrure and transported you to hit Louisiana locations. The love story itself however was a bit random and extremely cheesy.

Really disappointed

I was a literally fiction in the likes of “normal people” and “call me by your name” but all I got was just a book more shallow than Colleen Hoover. Whayyy is Tiktok lyingggg

I wish I had my credit back

sadly I found the story unengaging and the narration didn't help matters this time

Slow Burner for me

I struggled to get into this book for a number of weeks but persevered as I was reading with my book club. I must say once I got through the first 6-8 chapters I began to really enjoy this book and became engrossed in it. I usually don't take that long to get into a book but I am glad I didn't give up. A true love story with a beautiful ending

Great read

This book made me laugh, cry and also want to pull my hair out - all in equal measure. The prose flowed really well and the dialogue was witty and sharp. The tension and conflict was built up really well and the steamy scenes were seriously hot, without being cringey and over the top. Loved the narrator. Going forward, Tia Williams will be my go to for the romance genre. Had it not been for the tedious epilogue, this would have been a 5 star all the way.

Beautiful story, captivating characters!

I loved the story and how it was told. It was emotional and touching, with some really fun moments. The star of the book is definitely Eva's daughter, Audrey, I enjoyed her character so much.
