This is not what I was promised!

- Is this natural? And the most natural way to phrase it?

This is not what I was f***ing promised!

- Would it sound awkward to native speakers if I added a "f***ing" to make the frustration more clear?

It's fine.

"awkward" is putting it very mildly. It would sound so offensive in the ears of some few that you would find yourself knocked to the floor by a solid punch to your face. It depends a lot on who you're talking to and in what setting. You might just be escorted off the premises or might just suffer some disapproving looks. Others who hear this might just shrug and figure you're half insane.

(My opinion only. You might want to wait for others to reply.)
