#MyTBRL Choices and Linky: January 2022

Posted January 1, 2022 by Berls in My TBR List / 5 Comments

Each month you will make a post with three books from your TBR List (these books can be already on your kindle or shelf or books you might want to purchase) and add your link on the linky that will be provided. Your followers and the people on the linky will help you choose which book you will read next. The following Saturday you will announce the book that won. Then read the book and on the last Saturday of the month post a review. MY TBR List is now co-hosted by Michelle and Berls (Because Reading) so be sure to link up your post below and vote for others on the linky too!

For 2022, Michelle and I will be alternating months for our reviews – so the book you vote for today I will review on the last Saturday of February. My goal is to continuing making progress on my enormous pile of books I’ve purchased and then never read. This month, since we’re on COYER Strict Rules all 3 books will be free or nearly free.

My TBR List Choices: January 2022

This book was on the list last year, since June – it kept losing. But I decided that I really still want to read it, so I’m bringing it back this year. Maybe 2022 is it’s year?

Infinite possibilities….Infinite passion…..Infinite danger….
His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.

At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.
On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?

This is a book I’ve had on my TBR for years! It sounds dark and sexy, which I love.

#MyTBRL Choices and Linky: January 2022Drowning in Rapture (Rapture, #1) by Megan D. Martin

I didn’t plan to become a stripper who performs live sex shows. But that’s what happened. It’s what I do, and I’m good at it.
I was going to go on and do something with my life. I was going to be something more than just a piece of ass. But that’s not how it worked it out.
Men don’t control me. Not anymore. Not until my best friend left and he came into my life.
I don’t want lose myself and drown in another man. But I’m afraid it’s already too late.
This book is intended for mature audiences only, due to graphic depictions of sex and bad language.

This is a thriller that I got on an Audible deal and was excited to read… and then somehow didn’t get to it.

#MyTBRL Choices and Linky: January 2022The Wives by Tarryn Fisher, Lauren Fortgang
on December 30, 2019
Pages: 9

Imagine that your husband has two other wives. You’ve never met the other wives. None of you know each other, and because of this unconventional arrangement, you can see your husband only one day a week. But you love him so much you don’t care. Or at least that’s what you’ve told yourself.
But one day, while you’re doing laundry, you find a scrap of paper in his pocket—an appointment reminder for a woman named Hannah, and you just know it’s another of the wives.
You thought you were fine with your arrangement, but you can’t help yourself: you track her down, and, under false pretenses, you strike up a friendship. Hannah has no idea who you really are. Then, Hannah starts showing up to your coffee dates with telltale bruises, and you realize she’s being abused by her husband. Who, of course, is also your husband. But you’ve never known him to be violent, ever.
Who exactly is your husband, and how far would you go to find the truth? Would you risk your own life?
And who is his mysterious third wife?

  1. I think sharing this feature will make it easier for Michelle for sure. I am glad it is continuing this year! It’s one of my favorite features. I always manage to read the book but not review it in time. 🙁 Your choices all sound good, Berls. I went with The Wives, but I hope you enjoy whichever wins! Happy New Year!
