REVIEW – ROYALLY ENDOWED (Royally #3) by Emma Chase

SYNOPSIS

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, gorgeous 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 call him hers.

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.

For the first time since I met him, my hero looks lost, my guardian angel has a broken wing. And I want to mend him, save him the way he’s always saved me. I want to love him until he feels found.

 

 

Emma Chase has been one of my most adored authors since I read her debut novel, TANGLED, over four years ago. Her books are at the upper echelon of the RomCom genre. I’ve fallen in love with every series she has created and I might sound like a broken record but I think the ROYALLY series has become my new favorite by this amazingly gifted author. I swear this series has been nothing short of BRILLIANT. It just keeps getting better and every time I’m just floored because I couldn’t fathom that it was even possible!! I have loved every single one of Ms. Chase’s Heroes and shockingly, I have adored all of her Heroines as well. ROYALLY ENDOWED was SWEET PERFECTION from beginning to end. I know a book is pretty darn fabulous when I am nearing the last page and am heartbroken that I can’t stay lost in the story for a little while longer. I predict that Logan and Ellie’s story is going to sweep readers off their feet!!

 

 

Ellie Hammond is Princess Olivia’s smart and vivacious little sister. The two have always been very close and their relationship became so much more when their mother was taken from them too early in life. Ellie wants her sister to have a shot at happiness so she promises to take care of the family Diner for the summer so that Olivia can spend a few months in Wessco with Prince Nicholas. The beginning of this story coincides with part of the timeline from the first book, Royally Screwed. While they are away in Wessco, Prince Nicholas makes a request of his top security agent, Logan St. James, to stay behind in New York City and to look after young Ellie. Logan is not a fan of being a baby sitter but Prince Nicholas has always been like a brother to him and he’d do anything for the Prince. So Logan and a few men on the security team, stay behind to look after Ellie and help out at the Diner as well.

 

 

From the moment Logan walked into her life, Ellie had been completely smitten. He’s been the leading man in most of her teenaged girl fantasies. Her charming personality and love for life have quickly endeared herself to Logan. He knows that Ellie has a crush on him and even if deep down he feels an attraction to her as well, he keeps it all locked up since she is underage. But as the years fly by and they’ve been a part of each other’s lives, Ellie grows up to be an even more impossibly beautiful woman and Logan’s willpower to stay away from her is hanging on by the tiniest of threads.

When Olivia becomes pregnant with twins and Prince Nicholas realizes that moving back to the palace in Wessco would be safer for his wife and unborn children, Ellie decides to delay her plans of going to graduate school for a year and moves with them. While at the palace, Ellie catches the interest of the Queen. Since Ellie is considered extended royalty due to her sister’s marriage to Prince Nicholas, the Queen takes it upon herself to become a royal matchmaker. But Ellie soon realizes that there is only one man for her and that it’s time she made her feelings known to him. It’s time to take a huge leap of faith and hope that Logan will reciprocate her feelings. And of course, he does.

 

 

The passion between these two nearly burn up the pages of this book! Imagine years of the most insane unrequited desires for someone finally being fulfilled. Ellie and Logan spend countless days and hours just getting lost in each other. Life seems nearly perfect but in order to live a happily ever after together, Logan must give up the one thing that has brought purpose and respect to his life—his job as the Royals bodyguard. Can Logan be truly happy without the one thing that enabled him to rise above his impoverished and destitute beginning?

 

 

This book was everything and more to me. I loved Logan and Ellie beyond words and having the rest of the Royals along for the ride was an extra slice of heaven. Prince Nicholas was, as always, the definition of swoon worthy. He made my heart flutter more than once during this one. I can’t say that this is my favorite in the series because honestly, each book has been outstanding. There’s really no way to compete!!

*****Mel’s Review*****
5 “I’m Yours” Stars!

 

 

Logan St. James was in the military & then landed a position on the royal security team. He was hired to protect Prince Nicholas, the Crown Prince of Wessco. He takes his job very seriously. The prince has fallen in love with a woman from New York named Olivia Hammond. While Nicholas & Olivia head to the palace for a while, they’ve asked Logan to stay in New York to guard Olivia’s little sister Ellie. Protecting the royal family is his duty, & now he has to keep tabs on an American teenage girl. Logan is in his early 20’s when he first meets Ellie. He can tell she has a massive crush on him, but keeps things professional. He just keeps reminding himself she’s young & off limits, but that doesn’t mean he can’t enjoy her company. She’s funny & sweet, and he likes spending time with her.

 

Ellie Hammond is in her senior year of high school when she first meets the adonis perfection that is Logan St. James. The man is absolutely stunning. He’s brooding & a little serious, but he makes her feel safe & cared for. He’s brave, loyal, and makes her feel precious & special. Over time they grow closer, & Ellie continues to have filthy fantasies about her gorgeous, invincible guardian angel. She desperately craves him, but doesn’t think he feels the same.

Ellie graduates college & over the years Logan is constantly fighting his feelings for her. He protects her, but can’t make a move on her no matter how badly he wants her. He thought he could push it away & ignore it, but as time passes he longs to have her, to touch her, to make her his In every way.

 

-It’s my job to keep Ellie Hammond safe. All of her. Her body as well as her sweet little soul. And I’m damn good at what I do, but more than that, I want to protect her. Because she’s kind and clever, lovely and precious… and fuck… somebody has to care enough to keep that safe.

-What I feel for her is the only thing in my life that makes sense. That matters.

 

The loyal guard & the princess’s sister are not socially acceptable. Logan comes from the wrong side of the tracks, & everyone has grand fairytale plans for Ellie that don’t include her hero. Logan becomes everything to Ellie & she fights for what she wants. He would lay down his life for her, but will he choose love over his duty?

I loved loved this book! Logan St. James is everything I adore in a book boyfriend. Swoony, beautiful perfection!

 

-Ellie is mesmerizing.

-“I burn for you, sweet girl. I dream of you, even when I’m awake.”

-I want to cherish Logan. Adore him. My heart, my body, my soul- they’re already his.

-There was never going to be anyone for me but Logan St. James.
