I’m not sure what I was expecting when I saw the title of this book, but it wasn’t the warm, loving, but erotic tale that I got. Maise finds herself in heaven’s waiting room, awaiting her final judgment. At 24, Maise is filled regrets, but key among them is dying a virgin. It wasn’t that she was saving herself for marriage or anything – she just never had the opportunity. But as Maise is mourning this fact she finds a business card for the mysterious Madame Evangeline. She vaguely recalls taking the business card off the windshield of her car and placing it on her seat the night she died. Somehow, it ended up in her purse here in this waiting room. From the waiting room she contacts Madame Eve who, after finding out Maise hasn’t faced her judgment yet, assures her she can meet her needs and set her up for one night of purely sensual pleasure. Maise thinks of her perfect man, presses *69 on her phone and suddenly finds herself transported to a Castillo resort. Maise is in for a night beyond her wildest dreams, but what will happen when the morning comes? Reece is in mourning for his brother who recently died. He had applied to Madame Eve’s 1 Night Stand dating service only because it was a gift for his twenty-ninth birthday from his brother. There had been no response, but this morning he receives a message that his “perfect match” has been found. Reece isn’t sure he believes in perfect matches anymore, but out of respect for his brother Reece decides to follow through, after all, it’s only a commitment to a one night stand. Maise’s beauty leaves Reece breathless and from the moment Maise lays eyes on Reece something wonderful and new stirs within her. Their night is amazing as Reece makes love to her over and over again making her feel like the most important woman in the world. How can they overcome the huge obstacle standing in the way of their happiness? Bacio sets the perfect tone for the story it is bittersweet, filled with both discovery and regret. It is erotic, but romantic and so touching you can’t help but sympathize with Maise and eventually Reece over the untenable position they find themselves in. Madame Eve is known for bringing about a “happily ever after” for the couples she works with, but can she pull it off this time? Bacio makes the story rich, erotic, sweet and believable. She adds touches that make Maise’s first, and only, experience with making love full of desire and memorable moments that will last her forever – they have to, this is the only chance she’ll ever have to make love before she walks through those doors and into her judgment. I highly recommend A Date with Death. It is erotic, romantic and everything a love story should be while presenting some unique obstacles our couple will have to overcome if they are ever going to be able to have their happily ever after.

These books are bite sized sexy escapes for me. Leave it to Louisa Bacio to make it so much more than that. I figure we are all going to die wishing I had/hadn’t done that. Such is the case with young Maise a 24 year old virgin. Yep she doesn’t want to die a virgin. This is where the incomparable Madame Eve is called in to help a girl out. What follows is a story of life, forgiveness, sweet sweaty sex, love and second chances. This book reminds us we have but a short time on this ball we need to do right and make the most of our time.
