Review: The Promise by Kristen Ashley

Title: The Promise
By: Kristen Ashley
Series: The 'Burg #5
My Copy:
BookWhisperer's Rating: 

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 she not only hasn’t succeeded in getting away, she’s doesn’t want to.

There is a reason why I love Kristen Ashley and it is because she writes books like this.  We finally get to read Benny and Frankie’s story and I loved every bit of it.

So in order not to give anything away since the book is so new, I am just going to list out what I loved about this book.  Let the list begin:

1.) What I found surprise is that there was more to this plot than just passion and danger; this book was filled with truth, forgiveness, friendship, family, and love. 

2.) Talk about alpha male at your finest!  Benny was in charge this entire book, he never took crap, and it was hot. 

3.) Benny’s love for Frankie.

4.) Frankie’s love for Benny.

5.) Benny and Frankie’s love is not always easy.  There are bumps. 

6.) We got to read more about Cal (Joe) and Vi and their family!!!! Score! I absolutely loved their story and love their comeback in this book.  In this book, their story wraps up!

I am sad to hear that the next ‘Burg book will be the last of the series.  I don’t want this to end just like I didn’t want the series Rock Chicks to end but I feel like KA will keep on bringing us amazing stories with wonderful women and sexy men.
