Take two competitive radio talk show hosts, one with a PH.D in psychology and one just a guy and put them into a small apartment for a promotional stunt. Let’s not forget they are in a small two bedroom apartment with a live web cam feed to their audience that records all their moments except for the bedrooms and the bathroom.

Dr. Olivia Moore is the morning host of Liv Live. Her primary audience is the women and their problems. She talks about everything and everyone giving them advice she thinks they need and tries to help them. She has only one slight problem with being locked in a small apartment and that is her roommate, Matt Ransom.

Matt Ransom, does Guy Talk, the testosterone in this show is just that. He talks only about guy things, but not really any relationship problems. When they come up he gives a glib remark and pretty much moves one.

What do you think happens when two adults are locked in a small apartment? Especially when the two are ex-lovers and one is not quite over the other. It turns into a battle of wills and avoiding the chemistry that is still very much alive between the two of them. When given the chance to expose the other, will they take advantage of it for the whole world to see?

Both Matt and Olivia have problems of their own. Olivia tries to help Matt with why he has the love ‘em and leave ‘em attitude. But Matt doesn’t want anything to do with it.

Wendy Wax has written a witty, quirky romance about two people who are still very much in love with the other. But neither of them is aware of the love that is simmering just under the surface, but they are very much aware of wanting the other. There is a secondary romance going on as well, both Olivia and Matt give them advice. But will the advice they give them, harm them or hurt them?

7 Days and 7 Nights is Wendy Wax’s debut novel and what a way to make a debut. If you like romantic comedies then don’t pass this one by. Ms. Wax will have you laughing from the start and the laughter goes all the way through the book. Not only will you laugh, but she is able to draw you into the lives of Olivia and Matt and the secondary character, JoBeth and Dawg, to feel the pain they go through.
