Find on:

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.

Death Wish - My Review

Book review from Glowstars.net, 3.5 stars. Book cover: Death Wish by K Webster

Book two of the Deception Duet picks up right where book one left off. Landry and Della have finally escaped their father, but instead of running to the safety of Ty Constantine, have landed in the clutches of Scout. Naturally, Landry is pissed that Ford Mann doesn’t exist and is actually a creation of the Mannford triplets but, after a little protestation, the romance gets going again.

In comparison to the ending of Triple Threat, the first half of Death Wish moves quite slowly. Everybody’s hiding out in the triplet’s apartment with nothing but Landry’s half-hearted rage keeping the story moving. It is, however, inevitable that her father finds her and Della and they end up back in their ivory tower.

At this point, Landry grows a bit of a backbone. I say a bit because bouncing back from all she’s endured, I’d expect far more anger and resentment from her instead of the ‘sit and take it’ attitude. She’s looking for a way out of her situation, but at the end of the day, she’s really waiting for the triplets to come and rescue her. As for the brothers, their plan isn’t all that impressive and it could easily go belly up. I’m not one for spoiling an ending, but it does become more predictable as the story goes on. When the brothers share their plan with Landry it’s obvious what will go wrong and I was left feeling no surprise or shock when that happened.

If I’m honest, I didn’t feel that Death Wish followed through on the promise of Triple Threat, nor the ideas shared in the blurb. After this, I’m not sure I’d bother with any other books set in this world.
