Summary

A collection of short stories, Book 4

Gianna Giordano escaped a horrible marriage in Venice, Italy, only to find herself beginning a new life in Cabo. Soon after she arrives, she lands her first job, along with a few compromising positions with her new boss. However, she doesn’t allow the fling to last long because she thinks she doesn’t deserve happiness with a man like Laurato. When her brother and friends arrive in Cabo for a wedding, Gianna finds her attraction to Laurato hasn’t dissipated, and it seems his hasn’t either. However, she wonders if her feelings resurfaced because of the romantic atmosphere surrounding her. Can Laurato convince her she deserves more, or will she give up on life entirely?

Short and sweet ending

OMG Cobo is my favourite out of the 4 in the FYI series. Courtney Holly done a great job with the narration and managed to differentiate between characters well.

With this one being the shortest in the series, I feel it could have done with being a little longer, bringing everyone together from the previous books was a nice way to bring the series to a close but felt a bit rushed.

In all, a sweet ending for a short and sweet series.

My Thoughts on OMG Cabo

Omg Cabo was the fourth book in the FYI series and it was a super short but entertaining read.

I do wish that there had been more time to get to know the main characters and form a better connection with them, but I was really impressed with how well Elaine Marie did with this one.

I especially liked the leading man Laurato. He was sweet and patient and just really nicely done.

Another thing I enjoyed was the performance. I really liked the narrator's voice. She was very animated in a good way. It made her interesting to listen to.

Quick HFN

This was my favorite narrator out of all 4 books in this series. Courtney Holly maintained the quick pace of the prior narrators, but she added more emotion and different voices so that I could tell the main characters voices apart from other male and female characters. I would like to give the performance 4.5 stars.

Characters initially getting together is my favorite part of a larger book, so I enjoyed this short story about the start of Gianna and Laurato's official relationship. I would recommend this story to listeners looking for a quick HFN.

Second Chance at Love & Life

This is as a great ending to the series! Gianna is starting her life over in Cabo after an abusive marriage- she has trust issues and lacks self confidence. She finds herself falling for her new boss, Laurato, but quickly cuts its off because she thinks she’s undeserving of happiness and love. Once there’s a wedding for Jillian and Jacques, romance is in the air all around her and she’s not sure what to do about her and Laurato. I really loved that the whole cast from the series came together in the finale! Even though this was supposed to focus on Gianna and Laurato, I feel like it was still focused on Jillian and Jacques since they were getting married. I liked Laurato’s alpha male personality, but that he was protective and trying to show Gianna that she deserved to life her life and find love with him.
Courtney did a really good job with this narration! I liked how well she could portray Gianna’s emotions and insecurities and the easy sound of her voice.

A Great Ending to the Series

This was my favorite book of the series because I already knew all the characters plus it brought them all back together for a special wedding. It was a nice way to end the series. Courtney Holly did a good job bringing this story to life.

A fun trip to Cabo

Fourth story in the FYI series with two stories in one, a new romance and a beautiful wedding in Cabo no less. Would love to know what happens with Gianna and Laurato?

Short and Sweet

A great way to wrap up this series of short romance. Even though this is the shortest of the 4 you still get to enjoy a sweet and steamy new story while also getting a bit of wrap up from the previous stories. All in all this was a fun series to listen to.

Courtney was enjoyable to listen to. It was a bit odd not hearing any of accents the characters used in previous stories. It didn't really take away from the story though since all the books had different narrators that put their own spin on each story.

Cabo

This was shorter then the others. It also was little more rushed than the other three books. I liked the in love with boss story, and how this story brought all the other stories together, and I still enjoyed the story

Love Undercover ❤

I think this would have gone off a little better if it was just a tad bit longer. I don't know how much the writer Elaine Marie wanted to grab from her listeners with only having 47 minutes of listening time. Now, I know there are previous novellas that brought all of this together in OMG Cabo, but I just felt that Cabo needed a little bit more time added to it to bring it all on home sort of speak.

So, that's the only reason why I couldn't give it five stars but I would still say if you're going to listen to the other three novellas you need to go ahead and listen to this one to because this is the ending to it all.

I have not had the pleasure of listening to Courtney Holly narration prior to this story so I would love to hear her and in another novel to be fair in giving my opinion of her as a narrator.

Book 4

Fun and quick story. Fun having everyone getting together for the wedding. But quick with the love story. Self esteem issues had to be resolved quickly with Gianna. I did enjoy the story and the narration was great.

What happens in Cabo?

Cabo is the 4th in the FYI<3 series and we get to see Gianna as she slowly creeps into her new life. We knew she was in a bad marriage, but in this short, we get her story of what happened. But the bad does not stop her from having feelings for her boss. Laurato too is attracted to Gianna, but she is his employee! Can these two find their happily ever after? As we watch Jillian and Jacques get married with all of our friends from the first three books in the series, we get to enjoy Gianna and Laurato's chance at finding their own happiness. Courtney Holly is a great pick for this new adult story, giving a fresh, young feel to it and making you want to get to Cabo! OMG!

Abrupt Ending

Not so much as abrupt but I feel it could have told a little more of what happened at the end. But overall it was ok.

second chance

I empathized with Gianna, but her self doubts made me crazy! Laurato was wonderful, and stepped up to the plate to claim his prize ! See how it all goes down. Warm and fuzzies included. The narrator did a great job. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review.

Great short story

I liked it I did. But I felt it would have been a lot better had Gianna not known or hooked up with Laur before we knew about him. The story got really good and then bam....she had already slept with him and lived with him before. Now they were just dancing around one another. Again, it was good but i felt like a previous history wasn't really needed. The narration was great and easy to listen to.

Love Adverse Heroine and Patient Sweet Hero/Boss

OMG Cabo is the fourth and final novella in the FYI series. It can be enjoyed as a stand-alone book but it has all the couple's from previous books in the series at the wedding of Jillian and Jaques (book 1). Narrated by Courtney Holly who does an excellent job with emotional depth and a wide range of character voices.

Gianna (Gia) just left an abusive husband in Venice and is struggling with self-worth and trust issues because of him. She moves to Cabo where she gets a job working for Laurato. He is charming and warm and his flirting gets her to give in (after a short struggle) to an affair. They have lots of chemistry and Laurato is all a woman could want in a boyfriend and lover, but Gia ends the affair. She is afraid for her new life, freedom and job and feels undeserving of all Laurato has to offer her. Laurato is willing to fight for his relationship with Gia. When all Gia's friends and family come to Cabo for Jillian and Jaques wedding, Laurato makes his move. Will Gia give in to what she really wants too or will she brush it off as all the emotions from a wedding?

Quick little romance

This was a quick little romance, just perfect to complete during my commute home from work. This is book 4 in the series, but is a complete story in and of itself. However, it helps to be familiar with the characters from earlier books in the series.

short story, but I liked it

Gianno left Italy because of an abusive marriage. She ended up working in Cabo. There she meetS Laurato, her boss. They have a short affair, but with her distrust and insecurities, she decide to cut off their relationship . Gia feels she doesnt deserve happiness and finding love again. Laurato wants to show her that he can be that man to take care of her. This is a cute short story. I wish was longer. Elaine Marie narration is excellent and gives all characters their own voice and personality. 🎧audiobookobsessionreview🎧
