Is there anything you would change about this book?
I love Kristen Ashley books, but this one... I dunno I feel like the girl's kind of a push over... I get it, hot guys but I feel like a lot of the women in her books forgive because the hot guy is "ready". The women are constantly being put off and I dunno I feel like there should be more anger, they're to forgiving...unless I am just an angry person?
What three words best describe Amanda Bruton’s performance?
I could hear her slurp every-once in awhile and it was...off putting. Otherwise she did a good job

I cringe every time I hear the Bianchi name mispronounced in this book! Has the narrator not to mention the editor or production crew (I assume crew?) ever considered doing a simple Internet search to find a correct pronunciation if they are unsure? I checked myself & there are several websites all with the correct pronunciation which is Bee ah n kee -like Chianti wine.
An author like Kristen Ashely (who is one of my favorites) should get an experienced narrator for each & every one of her books!
I will be reading this one one own & finish out the series with the last book on audio.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, this is a rich story with characters of depth. Lots of humour and great dialogue between the main characters. There's some mystery and a great storyline.
What other book might you compare The Promise (The 'Burg Series) to, and why?
Links well with At Peace also from the burg series.
Which character – as performed by Amanda Bruton – was your favourite?
Frankie, narrated so well.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Spunk and humour
Where does The Promise (The 'Burg Series) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Love the story, love Kristen Ashley. But I found it really annoying to listen to the book and cringing every time an Italian name/surname was pronounced. Surely, the lady reading the book was told/ taught on how to pronounce certain sounds! Arghh...such a shame as it takes away the pure pleasure of listening to a great story.
What did you like best about this story?
Love Frankie's attitude and the whole 'The Burg' series
Would you listen to another book narrated by Amanda Bruton?
Having read this book I returned to it to listen to. This presentation made me smile and laugh. The performance change of voice to female ,particularly the bowling posse added another dimension to sense of the characters. Very enjoyable
