"The book is really FABULOUS ! It made me laugh, think, emote, smile, reminisce .....If you are a Filipino , the book would remind you of your core values. And if you're not it would give you a glimpse of its people and culture. Highly entertaining. I think this would be a nice Rom Com movie. Looking forward to the next book."

"This book is the perfect antidote to a moody Monday. It's that great pick-me-upper you greedily devour while sipping your favorite coffee at your local Starbucks. It's a modern fairy tale of pain and forgiveness, of adventures unknown, and of love in the age of halo-halo and cherry blossoms. Buy it, read it, you'll love it. So what are you waiting for? "Tara let's!"

"Fobolous is MY story. Fobolous is OUR story. It's the story of every girl who has ever fallen in love just to have their heart broken but rising from the heartbreak, not only stronger but also fiercer and still never losing hope in the power of love. It's the story of every Filipino who left their country to seek a better future for themselves and their children and who experienced triumphs and failures along the way. I loved that the characters have strengths and weaknesses. I loved that there's humor, drama, and action. I loved that it's real and human and totally relatable. Oh yeah, Fobolous is absolutely fabulous!"

"Such a beautiful and one-of-its-kind love story. I'm sure lots of people like me can surely relate to some, if not all, characters. I just can't help not to put the book down... Sorry chores and laundry!!!'I felt I'm going to miss something if I put the book down so I kept on reading wanting more and more developments. Love is definitely in the air written all over the book from front to end!!! I can't wait for The Sequel."

"I so loved this book! I started reading Fobolous on a Friday, Jun 10th, and finished it the same day. 😂 I laughed so hard for a lot of things that I can relate with and still smiling when they crossed my mind. Janelle represented a lot of us yuppies (young urban professionals) from the achievers/dreamers population of the Philippines or any Asian third world country, who embarked on a journey to find love and a better life on the other side of the world. 😄 I fell in love with James too like Janelle! This book is a good introduction to learn some of the basics of cross-cultural and/or inter-racial relationships. The storyline was quite entertaining and made me travel back to the memory lane of my early twenties. What can I say... to put it simply this FOBOLOUS is truly FABULOUS! Can't wait for the author's next book! I'm a fan!😘😘😘💕 👍🏼👍🏼Congratulations!!!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼"
