Book Description:

Evelyn Carter is a lonely, self centered girl but the loneliness doesn't bother her, the helpless girl in her dreams does. When she befriends a gorgeous stranger her life will change forever. But despite the stranger's charm there is something else about him that she just can't figure out.

On the other hand, Erick Clarke has lots of secrets he keeps to himself. He stay quiet and hidden. No one really knows who he is, all they know is his name. He doesn't like socializing but that will have to change when one day he finds Evelyn Carter at his door step. She is determined to find the hidden secrets of his mysterious past.

But Eric Clarke is determined not to reveal His Dark Side.

What I think:

I honestly love the book His Dark side, is a must read. My favorite part was the beginning, the descriptions are in such details that I felt like I was there with the characters. Even though the book has only two chapter so far on Wattpad it has so much potential of being one of the greatest book in the website.

Evelyn Carter is a teenager that's going through a lot, not only does she have to deal with her terrifying dreams but she also have to deal with the reality of life. Through her journey she would learn that trusting somebody is not always the right thing and that sometimes friends aren't the best of friends. 

Give the book a try and you wouldn't regret it. Rahnia would keep you on the edge of your seat.
