WHY I READ IT
Emma Chase is an automatic one-click for me.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
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.

Royally Endowed is the third and final book in Emma Chase’s fantastic series about the Royal Family of Wessco. This is Logan, the bodyguards story, and I have been not so patiently waiting for it to be told. Logan has always been a bit of a mystery and I knew there was a fierce, protective lover under that stoic exterior. Ellie, Olivia’s sister was the girl who, on the surface looked slight, but even though she could hold her own, was made for Logan to protect her.
Royally Endowed spans years, and I loved that part of the story! When we first meet Logan and Ellie, it’s at the very start of Nicholas and Olivia’s relationship. We get to see a bit of Nicholas and Olivia relationship from another side, and well as Henry before Sarah tamed him, and their relationship after. It brought all of the stories full circle, and we were offered a glimpse of what we didn’t see happening on the main stage.
Watching Logan grow more and more protective of Ellie was a delight! His struggle to maintain a distant relationship with the girl he was paid to protect was proving difficult. Ellie has never hidden her attraction to Logan, but also never stayed home, pining for him. She went out and lived her life. And poor tortured Logan, had a front row seat to it all. Their path to love was the perfect slow burn.
Let’s be honest, there is something exceptionally hot about a guy who can kick ass one minute, and love up on his girl the next. Logan St. James is hot. He has cornered the market on all things hot. I really loved how gone he was for Ellie. Even before she was officially his girl, she was his girl. It made his growly demeanor even sweeter.
Ellie was the perfect free spirit that Logan needed to ground him. She loved fiercely and loyally. She strives to see the good in everyone, even Queen Lenora. Her passion and zest for life showed in everything she did.
While I’m sad to see this series come to an end, Logan and Ellie’s story was exactly what we needed to close it out. You get to see a sneak peek at the future, which is going to have you wanting to start over again at book one.
