My review of "My Dark Side" by J. Ramirez

Hey everyone!! I’m excited to announce that my friend, J. Ramirez, will be releasing his debut novel “My Dark Side” for Kindle this coming Sunday, September 22nd.  I had the pleasure of being one of his beta readers and getting to read “My Dark Side” at it’s rawest state was a real treat for me.  He has created some incredible characters and the hard work that J has put into his novel truly shows through.  

“My Dark Side” is a beautifully written gothic novel about a young girl - Scarlett Verandia - who is moved across the country by her mother, taken to a town she knows nothing about, and brought into a life she’s forced to come to grips with.   Scarlett finds herself knee-deep in curses, magic and mystery....with only a few people she can trust and more questions running through her head than answers.  This novel takes you through the ups and downs of being a gothic girl stuck in a prom queen environment...with jaw dropping twists around every corner!   


Here is a short summary for “My Dark Side” written by J. Ramirez on his Goodreads page:

The last thing Scarlett Verandia wanted was to move across the country, leaving her soul mate behind. However, with nightmares plaguing her every night, she couldn’t help but think a change of scenery might help. When she arrived at Cold Spring, everything seemed quiet and peaceful, but as she learned more about the town and discovered a journal over a century old, her nightmares were only the beginning.

All of a sudden she was having visions, learning of curses and being prepared for something which she did not know. With strange abilities manifesting within her, she learns her life may be in danger, and the only way to survive would be to embrace her dark side.


Look for this amazing book in the Amazon Kindle store this Sunday and please check out my friend, the talent behind the novel, J. Ramirez!!!

Obsessed (Poem)

The breath that I’ve been holding
Escapes slowly from my lips
Caused by the softest touch
From our recent kiss

I teasingly run my fingers
Over your upturned face
Shivering with excitement
At each little gasp you make

You cannot see me smile
See my eyes gleaming with delight
For I was ever so careful
To tie the blindfold nice and tight

I’ve always wanted to posses you
To have you all to myself
Keeping you safe and secure
Sharing you with no one else

And as I slowly straddle your body,
You’re so still upon my bed
My eyes travel over the chains
Which secure your arms above your head

You plead and say you’re sorry
As I feel your body give a shudder
You moan out that you love only me
And tell me that there’s no other

Yet though I know for a fact
That what you say to me isn’t true
I just can’t seem to give you up
For you see, it’s always been you

And though you cannot see me
I slowly shake my head
Running my fingers over your lips
I can feel my need for you spread

This obsession that I have for you
Is stronger than anything else I know
Smiling, I lean towards you and whisper,
“I told you I’d never let you go!”
