A word that means different things to many people. Pictures and words that might stand as a reminder of love, loss, rebellion or camaraderie. For Haleigh Grace, it means freedom.
Walking through the doors of the tattoo parlor Inkfluence marks the start of taking her life back. Making it what she wanted it to be. No one is going to tell her she couldn't. Not ever again.
Little did she know that behind those doors stood Kyle Muse. He was her best friend, but he'd walked away years ago without a backward glance. The one man she fantasized would someday be her knight in shining armor, the one she saved herself for.
But he has a knight of his own. Tall, dark and dangerously sexy Scott Preston. The owner of the very shop Haleigh has an appointment with at midnight.
Feelings long buried rise to the surface and the three find themselves bound by more than just ink.

Oh, what I wouldn't give to be the filing in the sandwich of the men of HALEIGH'S INK. Alas, that delicious filling is the warrior Haleigh, who perfectly completes the relationship between Kyle and Scott.
For Haleigh Grace, tattoos equaled freedom. The freedom to make her own choices, not to blindly follow her parents wishes. One day, Haleigh makes the choice to enter tattoo shop Inkfluence, changing the course of her life forever.
Inkfluence owner Scott Preston is immediately captivated by the blonde society princess who enters his shop. He soon realizes she's a natural submissive, one he'd love to see on her knees next to his boyfriend and current sub Kyle Muse. Scott is shocked when Kyle not only recognizes Haleigh, but has a significant past with her, counting her as his one time best friend and the only woman he's ever been sexually interested in.
Kyle always knew he was gay; it was a big part of why he left after high school without staying in touch with friends or family. He's beyond happy in his relationship with Scott, but something about Haleigh always made him want her both emotionally and physically, and he can't believe he's gotten a second chance to show her how important she is to him.
HALEIGH'S INK is book 2 in the Member's Only series and can be read and appreciated as a standalone novel. This book touched me in a way that many menage books haven't, mostly due to a warrior who had a long and horrific battle with breast cancer. Even though she emerges the victor, she still carries the scars inside and out, and it was gripping to read about her struggles with body image and self-worth as well as her desire to take back her life. I appreciate that the author didn't shy away from the tough stuff when developing Haleigh; it made her extremely relatable and attractive for me.
Also attractive: Haleigh's two yummy men! Kyle has his demons, mainly stemming from the fear of being "out" to his friends and family as well as his need to submit to Scott. I thought it excellent that Kyle realized that his problems were small potatoes next to what Haleigh had been through and he stopped whining about it.
The sex in HALEIGH'S INK was seriously off the charts amazing! Ms. Kacey developed these scenes with such intensity and all consuming passion that it virtually leapt off the page Every. Single. Time! Given that Kyle was entirely gay...and submissive...I had my concerns about how the book would flow once the three developed into a sexual relationship. I was pleasantly surprised by the natural progression of sub to switch for Kyle as well as his all consuming love for Haleigh that transcended gender. It felt natural and right reading about the three of them together. Well done, Ms. Kacey!
HALEIGH'S INK is a wonderful read for fans of MMF menage and BDSM stories, and the fact that it packs both a sexual and an emotional punch is pure icing on this decadent cake.
