There’s a symbol for every friendship, something that reminds one friend of the other and always will. For some friends, it’s hearts or infinity signs. For other’s its wine corks or anchors. Once a friendship forms a symbol, it’s hard to look at the item without thinking of the other person, for the rest of your life.
For David, three leaf clovers would always remind him of his bond with his best friend Jade. He’d given her one the day they met, seven years ago, when she’d been crying in their High school’s courtyard. Since then he has fought his Dominant urges to turn her into his little play thing and locked her up, strictly in the friend zone.
Jade is a stubborn but sweet little brat, that always pushes against David’s control without even knowing he wants her in more ways than she could imagine.
When Jade gets the symbol of their friendship tattooed on her ass and tells the tattoo artist that it’s a symbol of luck and of love, David decides it’s past time to smash the walls and show Jade how good life could really be if she joined him in his bed and his heart, as his little submissive instead of his bratty best friend.

**Content Warning**

A Little April Fools, CONTAINS DEPICTIONS OF THE DD/LG (D*DDY DOM/ LITTLE GIRL) LIFESTYLE. NO CHARACTERS ENGAGED IN SEXUAL ACTS ARE RELATED, BIOLOGICALLY OR LEGALLY. The story includes lots of playful submission and other BDSM games. Knife play and other forms of sexual discipline and edge play fill these pages. If any of these subjects, make you uncomfortable please do not purchase this book.

Gosh. I am such a cover whore. Seriously, have a great cover and a semi-decent blurb…and you probably are already holding my money. This cover/blurb thing I have is a serious weakness. Case in point: A Little Aprils Fools

A Little Aprils Fools has a super hot guy with a great profile for the cover. I mean, gosh! I could just stare at him. The blurb is pretty decent as well – it sounds like it should be up my alley: a friends-to-lovers ageplay novel. There is supposed to be a Little, a Daddy Dom and some DD/LG play.

There was NONE between the MCs. NONE. Sorry, calling someone “Daddy” does not an ageplay make. There wasn’t even any foreplay or sex until the last chapter.

The book was basically over before the hero even told the heroine about his sexual preferences. And the fact that the hero was too scared to tell the heroine himself…but was willing to spill it NATIONAL TV (Jerry Springer type show) almost cost me my vision, the eyes were rolling so hard. So, I never believed the hero as a Dom and I didn’t believe the relationship, either. The Jerry Springer-ness of it all – meaning the hero put off dealing with the entire situation UNTIL Jerry – had me skimming. Especially when the hero goes to a club to play – and no, the heroine was not aware. Ugh.

I guess I’ll skip Haley Monroe in the future. I feel like I got the bait and switch.
