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.

Super, swoony, great.
Wow! I've read and loved the two previous Royally books by Emma Chase and I was super looking forward to this. I absolutely loved this! I think it's got to be my favourite.
This is Logan & Ellie's story. Ellie's life is completely turned upside down after her sister starts a relationship with a royal prince. Suddenly her and her family are hot news and the royal's assign bodyguards to her. Enter Logan. Fiercely loyal to the royal family, he takes his task to protect Ellie very seriously. Ellie has a crush on the swoony Logan from the get go but he is all professionalism and shows zero return interest. Or does he? Lol.
This book spans a few years and I loved watching the relationship and the characters grow over that time. It had a magical, slow burn, fairytale feel to it. There were laugh out loud moments and plenty of witter banter, but also lots of swoon-worthy romance and emotional times as well. Also add a little suspense as well for a well rounded story that drew me in from the start and kept my attention to the end.
Ellie and Logan were both great, multi-faceted characters that I loved and immediately connected with. I was rooting for them from the start and when I finished I had a great big grin on my face but was a little loathe to let go.
This story does standalone but the story timeline does cross some events from the previous books so I'd recommend reading the others first. They're great too so it's not any hardship.
I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this and I would not hesitate to recommend.
