I keep on being placed on small clients/spac/first year audits(6 in 6months) which means I’m normally working busy season hours. Not burnt out, just off pto, looking for advice. Is there hope in sight without going to a large engagement by request or is summer just like this?

Wow are you me? I’ve been on three first year audits in two years (two 12/31 and one 6/30) and my summer is just gone.

Try to get on a client/industry you're interested in. They can't book you on a smaller client if you're schedule is already full. Try reaching out to the manager on the desired client/industry. Let resource management and your coach know that you're interested in larger clients.
