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.
I'm in utter blissful royalty heaven! Emma Chase took me to the moon and back laughing, swooning and just pure giddy down to my toes with this one. I freaking LOVE this book. It's the perfect kind of slow burn with crackling tension, undeniable chemistry and fiery passion jumping out of every page! Ellie and Logan is EVERYTHING. Their tale brought me to cloud nine all the way until the end. It was beautiful and sweet and magical, complete with a touch of forbidden.
Logan St. James was part of the royal family's security detail and was assigned to be Ellie Hammond's bodyguard. Strong, brave and loyal to the core, this guy just stole my heart and owned it. He's rugged and rough around the edges, brought about how and where he grew up in, but that's just what made him even more special. It made him tougher, made him strive to be better than what he's left behind. Protecting Ellie and her family became his life's purpose. And even after going through all of that ugliness in life, his heart—god, this guy's heart was just brimming with pure kindness and goodness.
Right from the very beginning, I loved Logan's overprotectiveness and possessiveness over Ellie with a passion. His attachment to her came barreling through him as a surprise, but he held on his ground and restraint for a long, long time—I mean, we're talking years here. And Ellie always thought of him as her guardian angel—I couldn't agree more. I don't think there's anything Logan can't do when it came to protecting and saving Miss Ellie. It has truly become his top priority and instinct to do so. And it was more than swoon-worthy and heart-melting to witness. All of it.
Being Princess Olivia's younger sister, Ellie Hammond was around the royal family even more that she needed her own bodyguard for safety purposes. And right as she sets her sights on who will actually be stuck with her all the time, it was instant fireworks all over. Since then, her complete and utter enamor for Logan has never waned and has been ever-present and running for five unbelievably torturous years. Seriously, how can you be around someone you like and want so badly since forever, yet you can't do anything about it? Can't even act on it? That's pure and painful torture! I think I adored Logan even more when he showed so much respect and didn't really take advantage of that, no matter how tempting it was...
Ellie is so free-spirited and wild-hearted. Someone who wears her emotions on her sleeve like a badge of honor. She's like an explosion of sunshine and rainbows and unicorns when you take a peek of what's inside. I absolutely admired her love for life. How she never backs down from anything and when she puts her mind onto something, she always goes all in—never half-assed. It's so courageous of her, something not everybody her age possesses fully anymore. She's just fun and quirky and hilarious and I want to be her best friend. She's the most enjoyable partner in crime anyone can ever ask for, if you ask me. And her personality all together is gloriously infectious. It's just impossible for Logan to be around this girl so often and not to fall for her. Imfreakingpossible.
Royally Endowed is, without a doubt, the ultimate summer read and feel good book that will make you smile so broadly and feel all the butterflies in your tummy. That witty humor, tender moments and sexy, dirty scenes all wrapped up in one unputdownable book is certainly Emma Chase's signature. The storyline, the characters—both main and secondary, the writing... everything just adds up to make it every bit exceptionally exquisite. A definite must read!
A great book!
A perfect read!!!
This book was PERFECT! From the "go for what she wants" heroine, to the sexy, stubborn hero, you will be devouring it in no time. The build up to them getting together was intense, and when they finally got there?? To say they heated up the pages is an understatement. Add in a bit of suspense, and you have a must read!!!
