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.

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.
