A simple rule but a valuable one.

The Castle is the most exclusive and illusive male strip club in the country. As dancers we’re treasured like royalty and as clients, you’re treated like it.

I’m the cocky, playful, green eyed dream boat whose body makes ladies hit high notes. Every man that walks out onto the stage is loved like a prince.

I’m Arik and this is my story.

This is the first book in a HOT new series by Xavier Neal.

Ari runs her own business as an event planner and is rebuilding her career after being blackballed as a wedding planner. She is focused solely on work with an occasional fling on the side.  Unlike other women her age, she is not concerned with finding that special someone.  But when she meets Arik when he auditions as the musician for a party she is planning, she may be in for more than she bargained for.

Arik loves his music but until he can make it as a full-time musician, he must do what he has to do to pay the bills.  It just so happens what he has to do involves taking off his clothes.  But the money is great and he still gets to play his music.  When he auditions for a new gig, he doesn’t realize his world is about to be turned on its axis.

The chemistry between these two cannot be denied and one taste of each other has them both addicted. Will love find Arik and Ari where and when they least expect it?

I loved that this story had some reverse roles for the main characters.  Ari and Arik are both strong, independent people and I couldn’t help but love them both.  Xavier has hit another home run with this new series.  I can always count on her to deliver stories that will grab my attention and my heart from the very beginning.  Can’t wait for more in this series!

“I had on taste of her, and that’s all I’ve wanted in my system since.” ~Arik

Prince Arik is the first book in the sexy new series by Xavier Neal. It’s sexy, hot, and sooo romantic. It’s the story about two people who don’t believe in love or relationships until they surprisingly find themselves falling hard for one another.
Arik and Ari are perfect for one another; both have a great sense of humor and are so freaking sarcastic. Arik meets Ari while auditioning as a singer she is planning for her evil witch boss. Ari isn’t only struck by his beautiful voice but also by his sexy face and body. The sexual tension and teasing is sizzling, and the two soon embark on what they think will be a mind-blowing sexual fling, but that’s not exactly what happens. They actually discover they like each other outside of the bedroom. But, with trust issues and a secret Arik is hiding from her, this road to HEA will be a rough one.
LOVE, LOVE these characters! They aren’t who they appear to be. Ari comes across as extremely self-confident, but underneath her beautiful face she’s afraid of relationships and has serious trust issues. And cocky, sexy Arik….a stripper who plays piano, sings like an angel, and loves to sail? Not exactly what you would expect, how could you not love him? The two complete one another. Their relationship is off the charts hot, but it’s also very sweet. When Arik whispers in her ear, “I’ll be your lifesaver. I won’t let you down.” AHHH….be still my heart!
Neal has this unique way of making you fall in love with her characters, even her secondary ones. I loved their families, and you will too once you read this book, and she makes you love, Liz. For those of you who have read her Senses Series, you will remember Liz. I wasn’t a fan of hers in that series, but I loved her in this book! I hope she gets her own HEA! Xavier Neal continues to prove herself to be a writing force to be reckoned with. She writes books with serious issues and tears, totally hot, erotic books, and sexy romantic comedies like this one, but each one grabs a hold of your heart and emotions, and you find yourself waiting impatiently for her next book!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00075]Synopsis

Branna Murphy is broken. For months now she has been a part of a one-sided relationship to a man she loves more than life itself. She prayed for a miracle, and hoped something would change, but found that was wishful thinking.

Talking didn’t work. Shouting didn’t work. Crying didn’t work. Nothing bloody worked.

Ryder Slater is furious. For months now he has been lying to a woman he would take a bullet for in order to protect her. He is involved in something that goes deeper than his old past, and if he strays off target, people will start to die. People he loves.

He couldn’t talk. He couldn’t slip up. He couldn’t lose focus. He couldn’t do a damn thing.

Things between Ryder and Branna are at rock bottom, and Ryder knows it. Not only will he be taking on a force that could destroy his whole family, but he will be battling tooth and nail to save his relationship and keep the love of his life by his side.

Ryder targeted Branna from the first moment he saw her, and what Ryder targets, Ryder dominates.

“Just tellin’ you like it is,” I smirked. “Kid.”

Ash growled. “You have five-seconds.”

Oh, shit.

I stood up and quickly scurried around to the other side of our work counter, and placed my hands in front of my chest.

“Ash,” I warned, my voice low. “Don’t even think about it.”

He rounded the station and advanced on me, a smirk playing on his lips.

“Don’t!” I said firmly, hoping my no-bullshit-demeanour would give him reason to stop.

It didn’t, if anything, it only fuelled the freak to come at me faster.

“No!” I shrieked and made a move to dive behind the counter but Ash was too fast, and caught me mid-air.

He set me down, and full on assaulted my sides with his fingertips as he tickled me. I laughed, shrieked some more, and did the strangest moves known to man as I made my bid to escape the terror.

“Mercy!” I laughed. “For the love of God, mercy!”

Ash pulled back on his tickling but kept hold of me as I steadied myself and came down from my laughing high. I was about to playfully sucker punch him and make a run for the break room when I heard my name being… bellowed.

Teaser - Ryder2

michele review 5 star a

When I saw that Ryder was coming out I was so freaking excited! FINALLY we get to hear Ryder and Branna’s story! Through this entire series they’ve been a couple, but I’ve always wondered how they got together. Then as you start reading more books from the series, you start to get worried, are they going to make it? They’ve been having so many problems lately, you hope their able to work things out.

What I love about this book is that LA Casey does such an amazing job of bring you flashbacks of the past and bringing you back to the present without making it confusing or hard to read. Sometimes it’s hard to mesh those perfectly together, but Casey does it with ease.

While reading this story, my heart just broke for these two. They seem so perfect together and so in love. But secrets will tear any relationship apart, and the secret Ryder is keeping is a big one. Branna is a strong woman, but when the love of your life keeps pushing you away, that would start to break down any woman.

Through this story, you fell so many emotions it feels like you’re on a rollercoaster. You feel the heartache and despair, but you also feel all the love and joy that Ryder and Branna feel. The only question is, with everything that happens, will Branna and Ryder be able to get back to the place they were before? So madly and deeply in love? Or will everything they go through just be the final nail in the coffin….. You’ll just have to read it and see.

I seriously can’t wait to read from from Casey! I’m hoping and praying that we get Damien’s book soon! The dynamic between him and Alannah is amazing, and I hope they end up together! Another great book LA Casey! I’m excited to see what else is to come from you!
