7 Years Bad Sex
by Nicky Wells
"7 Years Bad Sex is a witty, intelligent and hilariously funny romantic comedy that aims to please... or not, as the case may be. A must read!" Kelly, Perusing Princesses
'A toast. To the bride and groom.'
Famous words and ones that many of us know all too well. Casey and Alex have it all. A beautiful friendship, a great band, supportive friends and a healthy sex life. One glorious sunny day in May, off the coast of St. Tropez, on a yacht, the Blue Heart's singer and drummer seal the deal as they say their vows in the hope of a happily ever after. The day is perfect, but something feels off after the toast. The earth moves and not in the way they both intended on the eve of their nuptuals.
Laughed off as too much champers, the 'tremor of love' becomes a mystery and the party continues, that is until they are alone...
What should have been a natural coupling of two newlyweds turns into disaster when both find it impossible to 'perform.' Too much alcohol? Come down after a busy and emotional day? Excuses are met with understanding as they promise to consummate the marriage, tomorrow.
But what happens when tomorrow turns into a week, a month? Alex and Casey become all to aware that something is very wrong. The 7 Year Bad Sex curse is upon them and with the help of friends... old and two new, very gay acquantances, they try everything in their power to find that spark, with some hilarious and very unorthodox results.
7 Years Bad Sex is a romantic comedy that guarantees more then a few laughs. It highlights the power of love, understanding and how marriage means more than just sex, but it also proves that sex is very important and without it, a marriage can spiral out of complete control.
Although this book can be very tongue-in-cheek, the latter part of the story becomes somewhat more serious. Once the laughs are out of the way, Alex and Casey have a serious problem and no Dr Love can save them, it is up to them to save themselves.
If you want a fun, witty, beautifully written story then 7 Years Bad Sex is the perfect summer read. Sit back, relax, have a cocktail and soak up the rays with this new number from Nicky Wells, you won't be disappointed!

***7 YEARS BAD SEX ~ A ROMANTIC COMEDY***
One wedding. One curse? Disaster ever after…
A seven-years-bad-sex curse? Surely not! Yet something went wrong when rock singer Casey and drummer Alex got married on that beautiful yacht anchored off St Tropez in the south of France. Something went badly wrong. For even on their wedding night, the young couple discovers a complete and somewhat surprising inability to make love. Muddling through their honeymoon with a string of thin excuses for their predicament, the lovers defer finding a solution (and panicking) until the return to their home in London. After all, they married for life and to make rock music, not for the love of sex. Right?
But when they resume life as normal in London, all hell breaks loose. Increasingly frantic in their quest for release, the unhappy newlyweds embark on a string of hilarious and occasionally harmful antics that drives them, their band, and an assortment of random strangers to the brink of despair. But it ain’t over ‘til it’s over or, in this case… it ain’t over ‘til the newlyweds sing.
