Publisher's 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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Not for me

I really wanted to like this story. I’ve been trying to diversify my reading genres and I’m not a big fan of romance novels I had heard great things about this one so thought I would give it a go. Unfortunately I struggled through the romance parts. I really enjoyed the characters, they were well written and the historical aspects were interesting and the narrator was great. If you like romance I think you would like this story very much.

I want to find this kind of love x

Tia, I couldn’t stop listening. I adored the characters and the plot. The relationship between Mother and daughter was transcending. I envisioned my baby one day exuding the wisdom that Audrey possesses and as a mother, guiding her as Eva did. Mela Lee you narrated so beautifully!

Book 60 of 2021;


Seven Days in June
- Tia Williams

Tia Williams wrote a quirky, witty, love story about family trauma, what it means to have an invisible disability, addiction, mental health, foster care, and how people have to give themselves permission to be loved. Eva and Shane, the main characters, are both famous writers (she, for her Twilight style series, and he, for his brooding series) had a brief (one week)teenage romance 15 years earlier, that changed the course of their lives. Eva is the divorced mom to a precocious 12year old daughter Audre, who attends a prep school where she counsels her classmates as if she were a professional therapist. Shane is the elusive darn near reclusive author who disappears from the spotlight but makes a surprise appearance at a local NY speaking engagement, much to the shock of everyone in attendance, including Eva. This is we’re the wild ride begins.

Often times, romance novels only focus on the the two partners, but I enjoyed the detail Tia Williams emphasized on the generational family members as well the secondary characters: the daughter Audre and best friend CeCe. This created a well rounded story that anyone and everyone can relate too. While the majority of the book spans 7 days, the glimpses to the past aid in completing the story and when all the pieces fell together…it was like magic ✨

4/5⭐️

Happy Reading x

Reece's bookclub does it again

Definitely worth the read.

the narrator does a great job.

The author captures the lives and relationships of so many people; from the relationships between mother and daughter, to the relationships between best friends, to the relationships between 2 lovers. she captures the expectations placed upon ourselves as mothers. and she captures the beauty of finally coming full circle and accepting yourself as who you are rather.

such a wonderful book to read. I could have kept reading for hours.
