Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??
Sexy. As. Hell.
And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.
For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.
To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.
The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.
But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.
Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.
But there’s only one woman he wants.
For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.
He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.
But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.
Everybody knows the bodyguard rules:
Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.
…whether you grow up in a shack or a palace, the expectations and demands of those around you tend to snuff out innocence pretty damn fast.
Cue the Whitney Houston song, “I Will Always Love You”, because Logan St. James is giving Kevin Costner a run for his money as best bodyguard EVER!
I fell head over heels in love with Logan and Ellie’s love story just as I had with the previous other two Royally books by author Emma Chase. The royal world she’s created in these books feels warm, exciting, romantic, not at all pretentious, and you’re left with a sense of longing to be a member of this quirky royal family.
Ellie was introduced to us in the first book, Royally Screwed, as Olivia’s younger sister. When she meets the royals, shes just finishing up high school and this book goes back to that time to give us a more in depth look at what was going on in New York as Livvy is on her summer adventure in Wessco. James was the bodyguard tasked with keeping watch over Ellie and I loved that we got to see how Ellie’s school girl crush blossomed into full-on love in this story.
If I had to choose between Nicholas, Henry, and Logan it would be a crazy difficult choice, but I think Logan would win.
“Because Logan St. James is a sexy stunning man on any given day. But when he laughs? He’s heart-stopping.
The Prince’s are both pretty high up on my list of favorite book boyfriends, don’t get me wrong, but there’s just something about a strong, hot, off-limits bodyguard that gives him a slight edge. 😉
I give Royally Endowed 5 out of 5 Krissy’s Stars!
Royally Endowed is a deeply romantic read that I could not put down once I started reading it. The characters in this story are extremely well written and I would totally recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun and romantic royal story.
*I was generously given an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
