Hello sassy people! Today’s post is about Death Wish by K. Webster! Thank you, K. Webster and Give Me Books PR for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review!
(Deception Duet #2)
by K. Webster
All I wanted is for my little sister Della to be safe and happy. And maybe, in brief stolen moments, I dreamed of a happy ending for myself with a brown-eyed man. That hope has turned into sharp, bright fear. There’s only survival now.
I’m the daughter of a controlling and cruel billionaire, so I understand about power. But I find myself fighting anyway. I find myself testing them.
I have claws and I bite. I’m not going down without a fight.
It’s like I have a death wish.

My Rate: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5
The writing was amazing, the action plot was thrilling and there are no dull moments in this book, enjoyed it really much.
Equality rate: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5
In comparison with the first book, this one was WAY better, in terms of consent and “open communication”. The dynamics were not so different from book one, but there is one tiny detail: SHE CONSENTED TO IT!!!!!
It made a huge difference for me. Comparing their relationship while they were all lying to her, with when she is aware of the situation and SHE DECIDES she wants it.
Also, there’s no Dub Con here, everything (for the most part) was fully consented and I appreciate that.
Also, we saw different sides from the male characters that we hadn’t before, and in my head, they are not such assholes anymore.
So in the end, it is still a kinda low rate for equality, but it was enough for me to read it and enjoy it a lot.
Adjectives and general thoughts: Still very interesting, amazing writing, but the consent is better here, so I really truly enjoyed it

Bye sassy people!
- I know that some comments I make about decent guys on my posts are the bare minimum a guy should do, so no, they don’t deserve to be treated like gods for doing the minimum, but at the same time, I’ve read a lot of sexist books and I appreciate authors who make characters that can serve as role models and examples of how a decent guy acts and what a loving and respectful relationship looks like. I believe we should always encourage these authors and bring attention to the ones that still write sexist characters and stories.
- I make a lot of comments about sexism and healthy role models in books, but a lot of times these characteristics don’t make the book a bad book and definitely don’t make the author a bad author. Please never shame these authors and these books for these comments, I simply feel that we need to have awareness of the less than ideal situations some books bring us, and not use the romanticized problem as examples of what a relationship should be. Most of these authors are still amazing, and the content they write doesn’t reflect directly with their personal views and opinions. Always make sure to respect and be kind to everyone, even while criticizing their content.

One of my goals in analysing my readings was to talk about important topics, like feminist and consent, because literature, art and culture influence us, and I believe we should always encorage authors who talk about this topics.
