The role of scalar boson exchange as a mediator of the fermionic dark particle interaction and the mass of dark particle on the bulk properties of fermionic dark stars including their moment of inertia and tidal deformability are studied. We have found that the role of the attractive nature of the scalar boson exchange and the fermionic dark particle mass can control the stiffness of the fermionic dark star equation-of-state. By increasing the strength of scalar boson coupling, the fermionic dark star becomes more compact. As a consequence, if scalar boson exchange contribution is included the compactness of a dark star can exceed C = 0.22. We also compare the fermionic dark stars moment of inertia and tidal deformability to those of neutron stars (with and without hyperons in neutron star core) predicted by relativistic mean field model. It is evident that the properties of both types of stars are quite different. We also have found that the universal I-Love relation in fermionic dark stars is not affected by scalar boson exchange contribution and the fermionic dark particle mass. Possible observations of fermionic dark stars are also discussed.
