That Which Destroys Me (Kimber S. Dawn)


A beautiful, enchanting story of love, happiness—*Record needle scratches across vinyl*
I’m just f==king with you. Love, happiness, and fairy tales… Yeah, they don’t live here anymore.

The only things residing amongst these thin and baren walls are Dominance, submission, and twisted obsession.
Stella gets knocked down over and over throughout her life… Though she is bloodied and battered she stands back up every single time, smirks and nods before asking, “That all you got?”.
Wesley has shoved his way through the rich life with both middle fingers up. He’s also shoved his way through half of the socialite population, but all that vanilla lifestyle has left him a starved man.

He knows he can’t keep his Dom fed with kinky little masochistic vanilla’s anymore.
On his mission to find the perfect sub, Wesley stumbles across a broken, shattered angel, only to find when she comes up swinging, that this little angel knows how to fight.

He wants to be the one who breaks her…
But it’s not a question of who breaks her, the question is who destroys her.

I’m really conflicted when it came to review this book and “starring” it on Goodreads. Part of my immensely enjoyed this book and part of me didn’t and I’m really torn because I don’t know how to explain any of it and that’s frustrating to me. I came up with three stars but only because I thought about this book all stinkin’ night long.


Like all books, I go in blind. I pick a book and start reading. I don’t read blurbs and I would prefer it to stay like that. They give too much away. I would highly recommend that with this book IF you feel like reading it.

The book was decent and it had a very catching story line. There were some grammatical errors, spelling errors, typos, etc. but the plot of the story was very riveting. Especially the little “plot twist” the author throws in there. I did enjoy the ending. It’s not necessarily a “normal” type of ending.

I wasn’t too crazy about the characters LOL. Stella was just a hot mess and Wesley was the driver of the hot mess express that Stella was a first class member of. The first 60% was just mediocre dark stuff going on but once you hit that last 40% you need to get a trash can or something because it’s so dark you might spew your dinner. Which again freaks me out because…I kind of liked that.

Like, am I supposed to feel dirty because I might have maybe just a little bit liked what was going on between Wesley and Stella? Ugh, like I said, I don’t know how to feel but I know that I probably need to take a shower to rinse off my filth.


Basically this book is like a terrible, reoccurring nightmare that just represses every single night. I couldn’t look away from the mess and yet, I didn’t even want too. It’s a short read so I finished in about 4 hours max but that was enough to make me want to scrub my eyeballs out with soap.

Also, here is my disclaimer: if you are sensitive or emotional it’s probably best you DON’T read this book.
