Welcome to Day 14 of #RomancingSeptember

Our guest today is Nicky Wells with her book 7 Years Bad Sex

 Years Bad Sex by Nicky Wells

Years Bad Sex by Nicky Wells

Where is your home town?

I currently live in Lincoln in the UK. Technically, my home town is Essen in Germany.

How long have you been writing romance?

I started writing ‘in earnest’ in 2004, while I was pregnant with my first child.

What is your favourite sub-genre of romance?

Don’t have one—I’m a complete sucker for romance and will read everything, from chick lit to historical to paranormal. Although I do love my rock star heroes…. *winks*

Where is your book set?

Like most of my books, 7 Years Bad Sex sees my characters travel a fair bit. They start out in St Tropez in France before returning to their main base in London. They also go to Brighton and Cornwall, and eventually conclude their story in Paris…

What gave you the idea for this book?

A dinner party, of all things! I was at an awards dinner for romance authors, and I found myself at a very merry table indeed. Evidently we toasted all the nominees and winners, and somewhere along the line, my seating partner to the left informed me that I was bound to suffer seven years bad sex on account of not having looked him in the eye while toasting. Obviously I laughed: I’m not superstitious! Plus I’d never heard of this particular superstition, but I was intrigued. And while he was telling me more about it, the story popped in my head. What if… you took a couple on their honeymoon and have them commit this toasting mishap? How would they cope? What would they do? The opportunity for endless mishaps and comedy moments seemed endless, but also included some deeper reflections. Just how important is the physical side of a relationship?

And thus 7 Years Bad Sex was conceived.

Introduce us to the characters.

Meet Alex and Casey, first of all—the two characters who tell the story. In her mid-twenties, Casey has long luscious coppery hair and emerald green eyes that hold a never-ending fascination for Alex. She is the main vocalist for rock band Blue Heart, and she wrestled her way into the band (and Alex’s heart) one night when she climbed on stage and booted the hapless previous vocalist off stage. She loves pizza and anything cooked in garlic and chilli. Oh, and she’s very partial indeed to a bottle of Pinot Grigio.

Alex is a little older than Casey. He is the main brain behind Blue Heart, and he’s also their drummer. He is tall, stocky, good looking in a broody kind of way with blue eyes and long, dark, curly hair. He is happy to play the part of the tough rocker, but actually he’s a real softie. He oozes confidence, but this predicament that has befallen Casey and him is eating away at his substance. How is it possible that a man in his prime cannot finish the job?

 

Is there an event or incident which begins the run of bad luck?

There certainly is. Read it right here:

“Casey didn’t reply. She was too busy making sense of the surprise in the sky.

Congratulations Casey and Alex, the plane’s banner proclaimed with bold red lettering on a white background. Casey’s heart thumped with excitement as the pilot launched into a loop-the-loop, then turned on his smoke trail and created a perfect love heart against the bright blue canvas of the cloudless sky.

Casey took another sip of her champagne. ‘Oh wow,’ she whispered. ‘This is so beautiful.’

‘Isn’t it just?’ Alex concurred. ‘I’ve never seen anything like it.’

‘Me neither. Sasha must have organised it. We must thank her properly later.’

Casey snuggled into her husband’s embrace as deeply as was possible whilst they were both sitting on separate chairs, and her eyes remained trained on the sky. She sensed more than she saw that Alex was taking a drink from his glass, and she leaned her head against his shoulder.

‘To us,’ she whispered.

‘To us,’ he replied.

For the briefest moment, the earth seemed to shake, and there was a deep, growling sound like thunder from within the sea. Casey grabbed on tight to Alex. She shook her head as if to clear a sudden fog.”

Tell us some of the ways the couple try to deal with it.

Where to start? First up, they go into denial and pretend that they don’t have a problem at all. That strategy fails spectacularly. So after that, they try just about everything: food with aphrodisiac properties that has devastating effects on Alex’s digestive system; kinky clothes that bring out Casey in a totally unsexy all-over body rash; sex toys that have them laughing so hard, they end up playing bowling with them; and eventually, sex therapy. Hold on! Don’t run away! That’s not what it sounds! Trust me… and read the book to find out what sex therapy is truly all about. *Nicky winks*

Tell us what you are working on at the moment.

Painting my house! LOL, not my house, exactly, but most of the rooms in it. After four years and seven novels, I am taking a small breather. I have three books vying for attention in my head—all romance, some involving rock stars, others more on the paranormal side of the spectrum—and I need a moment to figure out where I’m going to go next. I have a feeling I’m going to end up writing all three of them before I can make a decision about where I’m going to head next…

7 Years Bad Sex by Nicky Wells @WellsNicky #Chicklit

7 Years Bad Sex7 Years Bad Sex by Nicky Wells

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.
