7 Years Bad Sex by Nicky Wells
Release Date:14th May 2015
Genres: Romantic Comedy, Contemporary Fiction

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.

I was lucky enough to be one of the Beta Readers for this book so was able to read the book as each stage was completed. It was a real thrill to be part of this process, particularly because the book was totally amazing! I waited with bated breath for each installment and devoured each chapter. 7 Years Bad Sex is such a fantastic book that had so many laugh out loud moments and so many cringe-worthy moments that it was just so difficult to put down. Over-riding all this, is a beautiful love story that will just take your breath away.

Imagine that every time you tried to make love to the love of your life, you were hit with some sort of disaster because of some ancient curse! Imagination the frustration! Imagine the inventive ways you will need to come up with to try to break the curse. Imagine the fun you will have trying! Its very difficult not to fall in love with the characters in this book. They are such a sweet couple who seem to click together so well. With lots of secondary characters adding to the fun I defy anyone not to fall in love with this book. Nicky Wells has excelled herself once again and given us another amazing story that is filled with so many sweet, funny and laughable moments. The main message in this book for me was that love will win every time!
