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.

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
