March Book Haul 2022

As I said yesterday, I know my blog will probably never become an income for me, and I want to make posts I know I will enjoy doing. The book world makes me happy, so I’m sharing the books I got, even if hauls typically don’t get as many views and stuff. On the 31st, a bunch of authors came together and 750+ books for free.

I picked many novels from the LGBT+ section and the other section, authors or characters with disabilities. I already read, in fact, His Leading Man by Stacey Wallace, and it was a cute novella that I rated four stars. If it had a better cover, I would have rated it higher. As a whole, I got 20 novels/novellas.

Amazon Blurb:

Attorney Sasha McCandless has one ambition: Make partner at the best firm in town. Then a plum assignment plunges her into a world of deceit and danger.

When a commercial flight crashes, killing everyone on board, she’s tapped to defend the airline. It’s her big chance—high-stakes litigation for an important client. But, as she digs into the evidence, people close to the case start to die.

She discovers the crash was intentional, part of a breathtakingly evil plan. Unsure if she can trust her colleagues with the horrifying truth, she teams up with a federal air marshal, and they race to prevent another airline disaster.

Soon, Sasha finds herself with a brand-new life goal: Stop a madman before he kills her.

Settling in for a routine day at the office in 1989, high school memories are the furthest thing from David Miller’s mind. But when an unexpected phone call interrupts the personal injury lawyer’s midafternoon slump, he is surprised to hear from Michael Eisenberg–a former debate partner who went on to become the US Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois.

But Michael isn’t just calling to chat. He’s working with the FBI on a high-stakes case: investigating the disappearance of a revolutionary government scientist–one whose bio-evolutionary research could turn Darwinism on its ear, and pose a threat to national security.

The main suspect? Cult leader Philip Montgomery, who happens to have a strong connection to David’s past.

If David hopes to help crack the case, the attorney has to delve into a sea of old memories, revisiting people and places left behind long ago. One such person is former best friend Benny Friedman, who has clearly gone off the deep end. Obsessed with the JFK assassination, he insists he has evidence that Oswald wasn’t acting alone.

But as David’s old memories continue to surface, a startling deception comes to light–uncovering the truth in a most unexpected way.

Amazon Blurb:

The plan: best friends Clio and Nicole take a fun road trip across Michigan to deliver the centerpieces to their friend Katie’s wedding, giving the groom’s cousin, August, a ride for the big day. Nicole planned everything, from borrowing her mom’s minivan, to hotel accommodations, and the perfect amount of sight-seeing along the way.

The reality: Nicole is having emergency surgery, Clio overslept, her car is way smaller than a minivan, and August turns out to be super hot.

The centerpieces? Enormous. The itinerary? Blurry at best. The chemistry with August? Unexpected, and very intriguing…

This is a road trip they’ll never forget.

Amazon Blurb:

Whitney only needs two things to survive — a steaming cup of coffee and the opportunity to create art with makeup. But until her big break comes along, she’s stuck selling makeup at the mall.

While out at a nightclub dancing her cares away, Whitney catches a fleeting glance of a man she’s convinced is Prince Charming himself, but she misses her chance to talk to him. How will she find him now?

Taking a wild chance, she places an online ad and her dreams come true when he appears. Only fairy tales aren’t what they seem. As Whitney struggles to deal with the vast amount of changes in her life, her Prince is up against some losses in his, widening the gap between them. The only answer to their problems lies right in front of their faces. Can they figure it out before it’s too late?

Amazon Blurb:

Elena
What was I thinking? To convince my friends I was over my ex, I signed up for a reality dating show. Only to be matched up with the hottest guy on the island.
I know his type. Lying. Cheating. Insert derogatory term here.
Kye would never look at me in the real world. But he’s saying all the words I want to hear, and I’ve just said, “I do.”
If we stay married for six months, we win the cash and Kye will get more Instagram followers than he can count.
The man in my bed is rapidly stealing my heart. But can I stop from falling in love with my husband before he leaves?

Kye
I thought reality TV would lead to fame and fortune. Except, the producers paired me up with Australia’s Newest Sweetheart.
If I break her heart, they’ll crucify me in the edit.
I was willing to do anything for fame and money. But will I throw it all away for the woman I never meant to love?

Amazon Blurb:

Xander:
His usually steady discipline is fraying at the edges without a focus — someone who needs the kind of care the former Army Ranger longs to give. When he spots the sweet barista on his caffeine run, he knows she’s exactly the spark he needs to regain control.

Miri:
She’s doing her best to hold herself together despite her social anxiety and attention issues, but when she’s overwhelmed, the tattooed blond hottie proves to be a strong shelter. The warrior who covers his wounds with a charming smile teaches her there’s strength in a submissive heart.

Amazon Blurb;

I’m supposed to be focused on my toughest rotation of med school. So what am I doing exchanging hot-AF texts my hot-AF new neighbor? Or letting him see me naked at the window?

I don’t have time for distractions.

But of course steamy texting leads to more, and it turns out a summer fling with Kam is even more amazing. It seems distraction is just what this soon-to-be-doctor ordered.

After all, if he can push this girl-next-door way past my boundaries in the bedroom, maybe I can try pushing a few boundaries outside of it too.

Except if I ever want to be more than a booty call, I’ll have to figure out how to make Kam step out of his own secretive comfort zone too.

Amazon Blurb:

A Kidnapped College Student

While studying abroad, I was drugged, kidnapped, and imprisoned . . . in a Hong Kong brothel. After several failed attempts to escape, I know my time is running out. My innocence is about to be sold to the highest bidder.

A Billionaire CEO

My plan was to meet an investor at the upscale brothel and immediately return to Boston. That was until I uncovered Lily. I recognized her instantly, but she had no memory of me.

Now I only have one night to claim her and rescue her from her captors.

Will one night be enough for him to win her trust, to rescue her?

Amazon Blurb:

Noah’s world turned on its head when he discovered his new boss was the gorgeous Daddy Dom he saw at DASH. He knows he should talk to him, but how can he do that when he ends up hurting himself any time Deputy Daddy is near?

As the chief deputy, Zander knows he needs to keep things professional with the newest deputy. That becomes harder each time Noah gets hurt. All he wants to do is swoop in and make things better. Maybe if he can find the mysterious guy with the intricate tattoo from DASH, he’ll be able to stop obsessing over the newest deputy.

An accident has Zander’s personal and professional lives colliding as he discovers the man with the tattoo is none other than Noah. Now that he knows Noah’s secret, the overprotective Daddy isn’t going away until he’s sure Noah is okay.

A little communication goes a long way, but after a misunderstanding and a lot of embarrassment, will the two ever be able to talk? If they can’t, one of them is going to need a new job. If they can, Daddy and boy might just discover that they are exactly what the other has been looking for.

Amazon Blurb:

Lawrence Barnsdale was stunned when he woke up next to a much younger man. This wasn’t his style. This wasn’t him. He knew the relationship was doomed when he realized that Curtis was smart, funny and an accomplished doctor. Why would Curtis be interested in an over-the-hill mechanic?

Curtis knew from the night they first met that Lawrence was the kind of guy he could have a future with. If only he could convince Lawrence that the age difference didn’t matter.

Amazon Blurb:

Valet Xavier Lawrence hasn’t seen much of the world. So when his employer, the Duke of Selby, takes him along on a transatlantic voyage in pursuit of his missing son and heir, Xavier is thrilled with the opportunity. But the excitement over his first taste of salt air and the sea is nothing to the thrill of an opportunity for a secret affair.

Dancer Alexander Plushenko is on his way to New York to see his family, no idea whether they will accept him or not after a slip in St. James’s Park ended with him spending time in jail for Gross Indecency. The last thing he needs with all of that hanging over him is to meet the dashing and fresh-faced Xavier as soon as the ship leaves port.

Falling in love is easy, but conducting a steamy affair on a crowded ship with few places to hide is another thing entirely. And when more than just Xavier and Zander’s reputations end up at stake, and with a limited time together before the voyage ends, can the two men prevent a disaster and find a reason to stay together?

Amazon Blurb:

I came to Whispering Key from O’Leary as a career move. Mason Bloom, doctor to the stars at a swanky resort on a private island? Heck yes.

What I did not come for was romance, because I have been there, done that, have an ex-girlfriend to prove it, and frankly was distinctly underwhelmed by the whole endeavor. 

Yet from the moment I set foot on this island, nothing goes the way I’d expected.

The resort’s falling apart. The island’s inhabitants are ridiculous… and ridiculously charming. The whole place is awash in stories of shipwrecks and treasure.

Then there’s Fenn Reardon: Gorgeous. Infuriating. Male

And did I mention infuriating?

The man is the eye of the hurricane upending my life. He pushes every one of my buttons. He makes me feel crazy. Out of control. And more alive than I have ever felt before. 

I find myself craving his company, longing for his touch, kissing him on the beach, wanting him in my bed… and questioning just how straight I really am.

Falling for Fenn was not in my plans… but I’m starting to think the key to happiness might be going off plan entirely.

Amazon Blurb:

Blue: When my ex walks into the resort bar with his new husband on his arm, I want nothing more than to prove to him that I’ve moved on. Thankfully, the sexy stranger sitting next to me is more than willing to share a few kisses in the name of revenge. It gets even better when those scorching kisses turn into a night of fiery passion. 

The only problem? Turns out the stranger’s brother is marrying my sister later this week.

Tristan: I have one rule: no messing with the guests at my vineyard resort. Of course the one exception I make turns out to be my future brother-in-law. Now we’re stuck together for a week of wedding activities, and there’s no avoiding the heat burning between us. 

So fine, we make a deal: one week. One week to enjoy each other’s bodies and get it out of our system. Once the bride and groom say I do and we become family, it’ll all be over between us. Right?

Amazon Blurb:

A mobster rescued me, and I rescued him right back.I should never have approached Remington’s car. I knew he was dangerous, but he needed help and I was sure he could pay well for it.When he offers me an astronomical sum to stay with him for two weeks, I can’t say no. Even then, I know when our time is up, I’ll wish we had forever. Remington cares for me like no man ever has, and I can’t help falling for him. But how could a crime boss be my Prince Charming or give me the fairytale happily ever after I’ve always dreamed of?

Amazon Blurb:

Even hellhounds need training. 

When Samantha Rain takes her hellhound to school, she hoped to be surrounded by adorable magical puppies. Instead, she finds herself at the heart of a mystery and she’s forced to investigate a jewellery thief. With all the important people at the Puppy Academy, she can’t afford to step on any toes… or paws.

My sister told me to stay away from her roommate. I promised I would.

But I didn’t.

I didn’t mean for this to happen…I mean, yeah, maybe it was predictable when I started asking about his AI research and finding reasons to hang out, even when my sister wasn’t home. Looking back, we never should’ve slow danced alone like that. But with Chance, goofing around melted into messing around easier than butter on hot bread. It’s not fair to keep our relationship a secret, but how can I tell my sister I betrayed her trust?

And when the truth comes out, how can I keep both the people I care about most?

Amazon Blurb:

Maddox

I’m not a fan of Christmas. I’m happy to stay up in my mountain cabin and let the silly season pass me by. But when a friend asks for a favor, I can’t say no. Now I’m stuck in my cabin during a snowstorm, trapped with the most beautiful man I’ve ever met—who can’t wait to get away. He just might break my heart when he goes.

Ravi

I’m racing to get home for the birth of my goddaughter when mechanical troubles force my plane’s emergency landing. There are no beds at the inn due to a horrendous storm, but a friend says she knows a guy who won’t mind putting me up until the bad weather passes. Now I’m trapped with that man, and I must decide if I stay, hiding from the rest of the world, or go and face my past to earn a shot at my happily ever after.

I was so happy to find The Case Of The Puppy Academy by Arizona Tape because I’m slowly finishing reading her series. I wonder why many authors choose shirtless people to be on the covers?
