Get ready for the best beach read! We’re so excited to be giving away Tia Williams’s fab new book, Seven Days in June, which comes out TODAY!

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

Eva Mercy is a single mother 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 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 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.

I’m reading it now, and am absolutely LOVING it; I know you will, too. It’s the newest pick for Reese’s Book Club!

THE TASK: As usual, I’ll be picking the winner at random. To enter, please comment and share with us where, in your imagination, you are likely to run into The One Who Got Away. (Or where in reality! I am open to both “ugh, down at the Trader Joe’s, WHERE HE WORKS” and “In my imagination, we run into each other at the top of an active volcano.” Please also note:  The One Who Got Away can be very fluid for the purposes of this giveaway. It could be a cat you didn’t adopt or a plant you haven’t bought yet or a sofa you love but cannot afford. Be creative!)
