7 Years Bad Sex Nicky WellsSummary:

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.


I say this in all my reviews for Nicky Wells – I loved this book! What a fascinating concept this was. This book is definitely more on the mature side, as well, the book was basically all about sex! But it never got raunchy or on the erotica side of things, instead, it explored the relationship between the newly married Alex and Casey, and if indeed they were suffering from a curse that caused them not to be able to have sex. Some parts in here were kind of hysterical – such as one time when they attempted sex and the bed broke, the roof caved in and the bathtub went through the floor. I was reading that scene while applying eye makeup (because I just can’t not multi-task) and I had to take a break so I wouldn’t smear eye liner everywhere because I was laughing so hard. A true romantic comedy, and one for your summer reading list!
