Davey Johnson/Nora Williams

Published: October 4, 2018

My Rating: 5/55 star


She trusts animals more than men. He runs through women like tires. Will an orphaned child force them to change gears?

With her sister’s death, Nora’s life changed in an instant. Forced to raise her orphaned nephew, the animal rescuer doesn’t expect to be dumped and fired by her kid-hating boyfriend/boss. After her own close call and a message from beyond, Nora introduces the little boy to his handsome, fast-living absentee father.

Davey Johnson is a hot-shot NASCAR driver who never wanted to be slowed down by fatherhood. But when he finds out he has a nine-year-old son, he vows to be a better father than his old man. When his first efforts fail in a big way, he enlists Nora’s parenting help. But what starts as a chore transforms into something way hotter than a final lap.

When Davey’s sponsors clash with Nora’s vegan ways, he’s forced to choose between his passion for racing and his love of Nora. Will they be able to blend their lives or will their romance run right off the track?


Nora’s Promise is author Sedona Hutton’s first book in her debut series Racing Hearts of Serenity. This series focuses on Nascar drivers and the town and people of Serenity, Tennessee. This is actually the first book I’ve had the pleasure of reading from Ms. Hutton and I was truly impressed! I look forward to reading more from her in the future!

Nora Williams became the guardian of her 9-year-old nephew, Ben, when her only sister dies. On the day she buries her sister, her boyfriend who also happens to be her boss, breaks up with her and fires her. Desperate to find work, Nora ends up working as a bartender at a local bar after being guided by an unusual source to apply for a job there.

Davey Johnson is a Nascar race driver. He doesn’t do long-term or commitment and is extra careful when it comes to birth control. So when he gets an email from his estranged mother that says he’s a father, he doesn’t know what to believe.

What a fabulous story! Nora is a kind, caring, smart and funny young woman who’s just trying to do the best she can to raise and protect her nephew. She was an interesting character with some very unique abilities that gave this book an interesting twist. Poor Davey! I really liked him and felt he was doing the best he could after finding out he had a son after all these years. It wasn’t easy for him, especially in the beginning as he tries to adjust, but I felt he truly wanted to be the best father he could be for Ben. Ben truly was the highlight of this book! He was a fabulous character, a very enthusiastic, energetic boy that is happy to finally have a family.

This was so much more than just a romance story. It was a story of family, forgiveness, second chances, and new beginnings. Ms. Hutton delivered an extremely well-written story with fabulous characters and I loved the Nascar element along with the town of Serenity. I see AJ & CC will be starring in Book 2 & 3 of this series and I’m thrilled! I look forward to returning to the town of Serenity soon and hoping that some of my favorite characters will make an appearance in the upcoming stories. Highly recommend!
