My rating: 4 of 5 stars
7 Years Bad Sex is a light chick lit read best suited for the younger market of reader in their 20’s and 30’s. It’s a fun read surrounding the wedding and subsequent months of honeymoon era surrounding newly weds.
Casey and Alex are members of Rock group Blue Heart and we meet them on a Yacht in the Mediterranean toasting their marriage day, when they feel the earth literally moving, believing it’s just them who felt it they look forward to their wedding night only to be extremely turned-off by each other and unable to cement their wedding vows.
They have a 3 week honeymoon cruise around the Med booked but it becomes more apparent that it wasn’t just wedding night nerves when Alex can’t perform his bedroom duties and Casey is left feeling frustrated. It’s not just Alex, bad luck seems to be following them ever time they dry to make love. Back home in familiar surroundings they think everything will sort itself out but that’s not the case.
They end up trying everything from lotions, potions, sex toys, counselling and even a sex therapist but it looks like they are under a curse. Even Psychic Sam can’t help them. Can they really face 7 years without sex? or should they make drastic decisions?
This is a brave subject to make the central theme to your book and I enjoyed it more when the storyline moved to Brighton and Cornwall giving the reader a little extra to the story other than Casey and Alex’s obsession with sex.

7 Years Bad Sex
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.
