The Seven Year Slip

"A gorgeous love story from one of the finest romance writers out there." --Carley Fortune, New York Times bestselling author of Every Summer After

A New York Public Library Best Book of 2023

A Most Anticipated Book by Entertainment Weekly Harper's Bazaar ∙ PopSugar Real Simple ∙ BookRiot ∙ and more!

An overworked book publicist with a perfectly planned future hits a snag when she falls in love with her temporary roommate...only to discover he lives seven years in the past, in this witty and wise new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Dead Romantics.

Sometimes, the worst day of your life happens, and you have to figure out how to live after it.

So Clementine forms a plan to keep her heart safe: work hard, find someone decent to love, and try to remember to chase the moon. The last one is silly and obviously metaphorical, but her aunt always told her that you needed at least one big dream to keep going. And for the last year, that plan has gone off without a hitch. Mostly. The love part is hard because she doesn't want to get too close to anyone--she isn't sure her heart can take it.

And then she finds a strange man standing in the kitchen of her late aunt's apartment. A man with kind eyes and a Southern drawl and a taste for lemon pies. The kind of man that, before it all, she would've fallen head-over-heels for. And she might again.

Except, he exists in the past. Seven years ago, to be exact. And she, quite literally, lives seven years in his future.

Her aunt always said the apartment was a pinch in time, a place where moments blended together like watercolors. And Clementine knows that if she lets her heart fall, she'll be doomed.

After all, love is never a matter of time--but a matter of timing.

One of my favorite if not my favorite romance I read this year. In the top 5 of my 150 books I read this year. I voted for it in the Goodreads awards I loved it that much. Time travel and romance together, sign me up! All the feels and a HEA! My first Ashley Poston novel but definitely not my last. You will laugh, you may cry, and you may swoon.

omg i loved this book so much, it’s so much more than a romance, it’s self discovery, navigating thru grief, woman friendship, passions. (the way it continued to emphasized to stay true to yourself but it’s also okay to grow and change). Clementine always referred backed to her aunt, she adored her, she was hurt and as the reader i felt hurt too. her aunt always tried to instill so much wisdom about appreciating life and clementine saw that “she had been planning it even though, in the end, she wasn’t quite sure she wanted to go”. the aunt tried she once said “ just find what makes you happy and do it as much as you can” it made me think of mental health and how you truly don’t know what someone is going through. their relationship was so real and deep it was pivotal in the story. ALSO to be known is to be loved is the definition of james and lemons relationship, they loved each other. they are so attentive with one another like :,) and the magic part ?? there was no explanation and i love that maybe it’s what keeps the magic alive??? ;) i also just love fluffy and i just laid eyes on her and fell in love type of books so 😭🤝🏽🤝🏽🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️
