This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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.
Loved it! ❤️
Royally Endowed is the third book in the Royally series by the amazing Emma Chase. It can be read as a standalone but if you haven't read the previous books...you will want to! If you did read the previous books then you should remember Logan as the sexy bodyguard to Prince Nicholas. And who could forget Ellie, Olivia's younger wilder sister. Well, this is their story...
It's one of those tales. She wants him. He wants her. She feels he doesn't see her. He only sees her. They both feel the attraction. She is off limits. He is stubborn. Until one day everything changes.
Yeah. I can't tell you much. I wouldn't want to ruin it for you. I will say that the way Emma writes their story is brilliant, addicting, and beautiful. It was amazing to watch how their relationship grew through the years and how much they truly do care for one another. They want the other to be happy. To hear their laughs. To see their smiles. And the way Logan makes her feel protected is the greatest form of love.
I ❤️ Logan & Ellie. Logan is a sexy bada-. Ellie is a strong and free-spirited woman. Together, they gave me all the feels. Every last one. Yes. They are sexy and flirty but they are so much. Deeper. Their lives are not easy but they knew it wouldn't be.
Overall...I loved it so hard! It was great catching up with Nicholas and Olivia. So much fun to catch up with Henry and Sarah! I am not sure if this is going to be the last of the series but I am hoping for a certain bodyguard to get his own story. And I even have the perfect woman in mind for him.
“I don’t give a f- what’s rude; you need to listen to me. Do what I say from this point on, understand?”
It’s on the tip of my tongue to ask what he’ll do if I don’t. Spank me? Tie me up? Handcuff me to his side? If those are the consequences for disobeying Special Agent Sexy-Face, I’m about to become a very naughty girl.
“Yeah, what is this, Seven?” Ellie whispers. “Come on, Morgan Freeman—what’s in the box?”
“I’m going to hell for this,” I mutter.
Ellie grins. “Then you should make the most of it before you burn.” Good advice.
ALL THE STARS! Every. Single. One.
Diehard fans of Chase's Royally series sensed that Ellie and Logan's story was going to earn a special place on their keeper shelf. Pairing Princess Olivia’s perpetually perky younger sister with the watchful, broody bodyguard, how could it not? Well, I'm here to tell you they were right. The author delivered an incredible story. One that embodies the true meaning of steamy romcom. It completely charmed and captivated me with its clever humor and down to earth yet royal charm. (Just how did Emma Chase do that anyway?)
The author leads us on a journey of growth and discovery as Ellie matures from a spirited young girl eager to experience life at the speed of sound into a confident young woman who realizes exactly what —and who—she wants. All the while Logan watches, sometimes steers, and always protects. At all costs. I imagined him with an indulgent and often exasperated expression on his handsome face. Words that kept running through my mind were pine…and yearn…and mine. (And not just me claiming this yummy hero as mine either.)
Logan was introduced in the previous books. And although we'd met him, we really didn't know him. Well, lemme tell ya, there's a lot to this intense, ever-watchful guardian who protects those he loves at all costs. He has a quiet strength and droll sense of humor that mask a big, loyal, soft heart, especially where one perky blonde is concerned. He has quite the effect on her, and me, as well. When he goes into fully focused, growly protector mode, hearts flutter and lady parts tingle. Sweet Lawd, is it hawt.
I adored Ellie the first moment she bounced onto the scene in Royally Screwed. She has a fresh, genuine, tell-it-like-it-is, natural charm about her that makes you instantly love her. As a teenager she was a spitfire, and she's only grown more self-confident with age. She's the sassy BFF every girl wishes she had.
The supporting cast is phenomenal. Nearly all of the characters from the previous books make appearances. The royal family is in full attendance throughout. We see sides of them that we’ve not seen before. Some hilarious and some eye-opening with the depth of their emotions. All will deepen your love—or lust, as the case may be—for them even more. If this is the last book in the series, I'm going to dearly miss this amazing group.
Royally Endowed steals first place from book one for most romantic of the series. This story— filled with the clever humor that Chase excels at, drama, and intrigue— is a slow burn that builds over time until it finally erupts into a total conflagration. It’s impossible not to get singed, but it’s a wholly welcome heat that melts all your girly parts. I ran through every emotion from tears to cheers to holy wow! The author puts you through it all as loves comes at you from all sides, and it’s a glorious thing to experience.
Royally Endowed definitely earns a "Best Of" label. Or ten.
Had to stop 3 minutes into the first chapter
The guy who reads this is awful. He's so choppy and you can never tell who's speaking. Very disappointed.
