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.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting me on my blog tour and for sharing your thoughts on 7 Years Bad Sex, Rosie. I’m so happy that you enjoyed it and, in turn, really enjoyed reading your review. Rock on! 🙂
    I hope your readers enjoy meeting me today and here’s wishing ‘happy reading’ to everyone who decides to pick up a copy. I’d love to hear YOUR thoughts too! xx


    • Hello Noelle, and thank you for your comment!
      I can see why you’d think the title might hint at excessive sex in this book, although the cover might suggest there’s a different dynamic at play here. This isn’t Fifty Shades of Grey–far from it. There are no long-drawn out graphic consummation scenes here. There’s no crass language.
      This is a romantic comedy that takes a humorous look at one young couple’s quite sudden and inexplicable inability to complete their romantic endeavours. Of course there’s build-up and suggestion–quite a lot of it, given the crux of the plot–but it’s deliberately soft-focus. This book is all about the funny side (and occasional desperation), and how you try to make lemonade when life gives you a whole bunch of lemons. At least thus was my intention–I’ll leave it up to you to judge whether I got the job done! 🙂 Thanks again for visiting and leaving a comment. Here’s wishing you a fabulous day! xx


      • Nicky, How sweet of you to write me such a thoughtful reply. You realize now I have to read your book!!? I’m sure it won’t be 50 Shades of Gray since Rosie gave it a good review, and the writing in 50 Shades was awful. Best wishes on the launch of your book and I hope it gets lots of readers!


      • Hello Noelle,
        it’s lovely having this little chat with you. And I’d be utterly delighted if you were to give 7 Years Bad Sex a read. Moreover–I’d really love to hear what you thought of it. Thanks for your good wishes and for getting in touch.
        All best to you too,
