"Positive, uplifting NASCAR romance doesn't disappoint"

Fresh Fiction Review

Nobody But You
Francis Ray

Reviewed by Patricia Woodside

Romance Contemporary | Multicultural African-American

Cameron McBride is going for his second consecutive NASCAR Sprint cup. Racecar driving requires intense focus and concentrations. He doesn't need any distractions. But after a freak accident, he crosses paths with Caitlin Lawrence, the very woman who left him standing at the altar before 400 family and friends several years before.

Caitlin is at the emergency room for her son who jumped off a piece of furniture, like any other red-blooded four-year-old. She never thought she'd run into Cameron...or be forced to introduce him to his son.

When Cameron gets a look at little Cameron, the child's paternity is clear to him. She not only ditched him on their wedding day but she also hid their child? All Cameron wants now is his son, and that NASCAR cup. But Caitlin and little Cameron are a package deal...if he can convince her to give their relationship another chance.

Francis Ray seems to have an endless stream of stories about the Grayson clan and their friends, and for that I am thankful. Neither she nor this intriguing yet loving cast of characters disappoints. NOBODY BUT YOU, the latest in the Grayson Friends series, takes the hood off the NASCAR circuit, both educating and entertaining the reader. This book inspired me in my own writing because, as I read, I was struck that Ms. Ray's romances always take the high road. By that I mean, when given choices, her characters—far from perfect—conduct themselves in a positive, uplifting way. Oh, they make mistakes and bad decisions, for sure. The characters are real and three-dimensional, with real problems. Still, I always walk away from a Francis Ray novel feeling elated. NOBODY BUT YOU is a wonderful read.

Learn more about Nobody But You


NASCAR star Cameron Dunlap is poised to win this year’s Sprint Cup. But being a successful race-car driver comes with a price: His own life. Cameron knows that his profession puts him at high risk. Thankfully, his latest visit to the hospital left him intact. That is, until he bumps into Caitlin Lawrence…and is thrust back into his painful past. 

The one-time love of his life who left him at the altar, Caitlin could never accept Cameron’s fast and furious existence. The threat of losing him on the racetrack was just too much for Caitlin—and the young son Cameron never knew he had. Now that this chance meeting has changed their lives forever, will Caitlin and Cameron find a way to recapture what might have been?
