This is nonsense. This woman is milking money out of us. Thinking that each of her books is different, they aren't. They are the exact same words with different music or sounds. What a waste of money.

Oh, and #8 - Drink lots of coffee.................ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Is this really going to inspire me and add to my creativity?

What a bunch of crap.

I honest listened for 21+ days and I'm not really sure it helped with my creativity, but that could just be me. I really haven't lost my creativity. I've lost my passion for painting. Before a doctor tried to fix something that wasn't broken, I painted with passion every day. I studied painting every day with passion. I talked about, breathed, dreamed about painting with a passion every day. My beautiful life was filled with art, painting, teaching...all with such passion. It drove me. It steered me. I was on my way to becoming a highly skilled artist. It shaped me. I loved it so much. Then an idiot doctor ruined it all. I became, for the first time in my life, a person with severe depression. All I did for almost 2 years was sleep, curled up in a blanket on my studio floor. I slowly climbed out of the pit of despair and of course found a new doctor that helped me feel better. It's going on 6 years and I still have never returned to my normal, type a self. I've never gotten my passion back, nor my drive, nor my love of painting back. I am half the person I was. I've tried everything, but nothing is working. That is why I'm trying subliminal audio books. I'd give anything to be back to normal, to have myself back.

Anyway, to change the subject slightly, the reason I named this review, "Some of us don't like beaches" is because listening to a relaxation book that has one imagine being on a white sandy beach, getting in an uncontrolled boat that is drifting out to sea, then landing on an island only to walk into a forest and bathe in a pond? Are you kidding me? Why would I want to be on a Sandy beach when I've had skin cancer. Why would I get into an uncontrolled boat that is drifting out to sea? Have you ever heard of shark? Why would I EVER get into a pond? Where I'm from, ponds have leaches and all kinds of critters that sting and bite!!!

Did I fall asleep during this book, sure! Did I ever hear any of the dialog about letting your creativity flow? Maybe once. Did I get my creativity flowing? Nope. Is the narrator relaxing? Absolutely. Did it help? I don't think so, but I'm not saying this won't help others. It may!!! Try it. But, if you would rather be hiking or fishing in the mountains like me, try another audio book.

Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

Peter Klein and Mira Noire give an excellent performance in Plunder. Knowing Peter Klein's sexy voice already (he narrated "A Good Student"), I thoroughly enjoyed it again as he narrated his own hot story....and what a story it was! It was extremely hot with a few surprises here and there.

What a great bunch of guys, each with their own unique personalities, and Eva (Mira Noire), well, she was so sexy, so giving, so horny!! I'm not giving out any details... Listen…it’s worth it!

Loved it!!

Paranormal private eye. Grim reaper extraordinaire. Whatever. Charley Davidson is back in Darynda Jones' Third Grave Dead Ahead! And she’s drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because, every time she closes her eyes, she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the parthuman, part-supermodel son of Satan. Yes, she did imprison him for all eternity, but come on.

A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

When passionate professor Conner Devlin meets oversexed student Emma Fiore, the sparks ignite: he’ll train her to be his classroom sex slave, carrying out his every desire, while she gets to experience the forbidden pleasure of submissive love before her marriage to a dull and unfeeling man. But Emma’s sizzling and insatiable desires soon overwhelm Conner and he finds himself hopelessly in love with his young submissive. Emma accepts him as her sexual Master, but will she have him as her real-life lover? You’ll never look at the dynamics of D/s and a man’s sexuality the same way again.

His small act of kindness propels him into a world he never dreamed existed. There are people who fall through the cracks, and Richard has become one of them. And he must learn to survive in this city of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels, if he is ever to return to the London that he knew.

Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....
