Publisher's Summary

Since his brother's death, Benny Bianchi has been nursing his grudge against the woman he thinks led to his brother's downfall. He does this to bury the feelings he has for Francesca Concetti, his brother's girl. But when Frankie takes a bullet while on the run with Benny's cousin's woman, Benny has to face those feelings. The problem is Frankie has decided she's paid her penance. Penance she didn't deserve to pay. She's done with Benny and the Bianchi family. She's starting a new life away from Chicago and her heartbreaking history.
Benny has decided differently. But Frankie has more demons she's battling. Demons Benny wants to help her face. But life has landed so many hard knocks on Frankie, she's terrified of believing in the promise of Benny Bianchi and the good life he's offering. Frankie's new life leads her to the 'Burg, where Benny has ties, and she finds not only has she not succeeded in getting away - she doesn't want to.

It's ok

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 putting. Otherwise she did a good job

Get pronunciations correct!!!

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.
So annoying!!
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.

Links well with At Peace also from the burg series.

Which character – as performed by Amanda Bruton – was your favourite?

Frankie, narrated so well.

Would be amazing if...

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?

not sure

The Promise

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
