REVIEW: A Dance with Death by Louisa Bacio

1Night Stand
A Dance with Death
by Louisa Bacio
She’s a classic… 
After recovering from an injury and uncertain of her
future in the world of dance, ballerina Isabella treats herself to a dating
service–some frolicking between the sheets before she decides what to do with
the rest of her life is just the jeté her heart and mind needs.
He’s a bit more modern…
A successful music video choreographer, Raul is
constantly surrounded by gorgeous dancers. But his life lacks a vitality and
depth he needs to fuel his creative passion. He turns to a 1Night Stand to
discover inspiration.
A dance between life and death…
When an accident threatens to cancel the evening of
romance, Isabella and Raul will have to dance to a new beat. Can a dance with
death change fate?

the following excerpt for
If Raul had met Isabella before that
moment, he would have remembered her. She moved with the gait of a lifelong
dancer. Elegant. No wonder ballerinas were described with terminology such as a gazelle. He worked with pop stars and
modern artists so often, he’d forgotten the beauty of the more simple
pleasures. Isabella seemed to shun simple.
She embodied grace, refined and fragile.
Where had that thought come from?
Despite being in dance—way back in the day—and working as a choreographer and
producer, Raul’s image of himself was tilted, off-centered. He lacked
agility—an ogre, a brute who would break the porcelain figurine the minute he
got her between the sheets. His hard-on raged at the thought of her lithe body
stripped bare, wriggling beneath him. Oh, he’d have to go slowly and gently,
but she’d scream his name before the night ended. He could use the little ego
boost and extracurricular activity.
She watched him, and he grew tired of
the stalemate. Time slipped away, too precious to waste on the monotony of hard
“You need to loosen up.”
She opened her mouth, a line creased
her forehead, and he moved, kissing her.
Full lips. His arm slipped around her
waist and held her firm against him. She squirmed in his embrace, but soon her
lips became more pliant, she leaned into his body, and let out a soft moan.
“That’s more like it,” he said,
releasing her. “We need to spend more time kissing than arguing. Deal?”
Adri’s Review:
Oh see this is one that has a little bit of mystery to it…
Raul is rushing to go on his 1Night Stand date, but he ends
up having a bit of an accident. One minute he is seeing his life flash before
his eyes and the next he finds himself where he is supposed to be meeting with
his date.
Isabella, is waiting for her date wondering if she’s done the
right thing. Her life is at an impasse at the moment. Her career as a dancer is
practically over and she’s doubting that her date will show up. It wouldn’t be
the first time she’d be left waiting alone for a date that never shows. Just as
doubt and suspicion begins to take place and she decides maybe it’s best she
leaves, her date shows up.
The date goes well, but just after Isabella falls asleep,
Raul starts to feel afraid that if he falls asleep as well he will never see
her again. He battles against the desire to sleep and in the morning asks
Isabella about the events that happened before he found himself with her.
Now is he alive or dead? What will Isabella find when she
arrives at his home… Was he injured and that is the reason he doesn’t remember
or is something else going on? Those are the things you need to read to find
Happy Reading… Adri.
