Without You | Lacey Black

I spend my days brewing beer for the popular Brew Crüe Beer Company and my nights devoted to being a dad. Raising a young child with special needs can be tough and stressful, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. He’s everything to me, and the reason I keep going. It’s him and me against the world, and I have no intention of changing that.

Then, Kinsley McGregor walks back into my life.

Letting her go all those years ago was the hardest thing I had ever done, and having her here proves how good we are. Unfortunately, her Nashville life is calling, and I will have to let her go again.

This time, it’s not just my heart I risk, but my four-year-old son’s too.


My entire life explodes on television for the whole world to witness. After my husband’s public affair throughout the course of my very first headlining tour, I retreat to my safe haven: Stewart Grove. I need a place to lick my wounds and figure out my next step, without being under the watchful eye of the paparazzi, and I find it in my hometown.

I wasn’t planning to reconnect the man I left behind, along with his adorable son.

Tucker Dunn was everything I ever wanted before I went to Nashville to chase my country music dreams. Leaving him in Stewart Grove wasn’t easy, but it was the path we chose together.

Now, I stare down the same choices; only this time, the decision will be harder to make. 

My Thoughts:

“I’d never ask her to stay, but if she chooses to on her own, I’d give her everything she wants.”

“Because that’s not my job. My job is to love you, no matter where your dream takes you. If that’s back to Nashville, then as badly as it hurts, I’ll let you go in a heartbeat. Not because I don’t love you, Kins, but because I do. So –cking much it hurts to breathe, but at the end of the day, you deserve to chase your dream. You deserve the world, baby.”

The Burgers and Brew Crüe have become like my own family and I absolutely love that we get to add Tucker and Kinsley to the mix. These two have the perfect opportunity for a second chance and quickly find that they are falling right back into the same choice they faced a decade ago. It’s the perfect example of how you’ll keep experiencing the same situations until you take everything you need from it. We get a glimpse of previous couples and how their lives are growing/changing — it’s so heartwarming!!

Immediately, Gray had my heart. He’s so incredibly sweet, big-hearted, and a crucial part of this story. Tucker is such a good daddy and even though it seems like life keeps taking swings at him, he makes the best of everything. I love how he always finds a silver lining and keeps pressing forward. He’s been keeping his heart (and that delicious bedroom talk!) locked down — all it takes is Kinsley to let it free.

Kinsley has been dealt a sharp blow to her small town heart. But I love how she doesn’t let her awful (soon to be) ex-husband take away her down-to-earth goodness. Her light keeps shining — even if she doesn’t see it — and leads her right back to Tucker. This time, they have a lot more than just their own hearts on the line. I love her tractor song for Gray and how she thinks of him in the smallest, yet most significant ways.

Tucker and Kinsley are such a perfect addition to the Crüe, bringing all the heart and emotion to the table. Lacey makes their second chance worth every moment they were apart!
