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 loved how Logan respected Ellie enough to wait until she grew into herself and only then makes her dream come true. True love is about more than hormones ... it's respect and true care for the other.

Quotes: “Love isn’t a cure; it doesn’t magically solve every problem. But it makes solving those problems worth it. Love is our inspiration, our motivation . . . and our reward.” Review: What a fun story!!! I love when stories are able to focus on a couple while also giving us glimpses into the previous book’s couples. It was so nice to hear about how the others were doing and us seeing their relationships progress. GAHHH I loved this book. You may be wondering why I gave this 4.5 stars. The truth is….Ellie annoyed me at times. I know, I’m so sorry!!! She grew on me don’t worry!! It’s just we practically saw her grow up in front of our eyes. I think the book started with her as 17 and by the end, I’d say she was 25. (Unless I didn’t calculate that correctly, which is a definite possibility) Sometimes Ellie would act very immature, even when she was older and out of High School. She would whine and do certain things that just drove me nuts. BUT as I said, she grew on me and I loved her by the end of the story. Logan on the other hand was a favorite from the get go. I had such a huge crush on him. He may even beat Henry for my favorite of the series. His protectiveness and that swagger just did it for me. Did I mention his nickname was Lo?! *swoons* I don’t know why but I thought that was the cutest nickname lol!! I also appreciated Logan’s personality. How devoted and committed he was. He would do anything for the royals and it clearly showed. This book was a slow burn since we started out with Ellie being quite young. I’m usually not a fan of slow burns but this one worked well for me. The romance was SO worth the wait between these two!!! I loved watching their story unfold and I had so many warm fuzzy feelings whilst reading this. Overall, I didn’t quite love book one so if you didn’t as well, keep going!! Books two and three blew me away. This series now holds a special place to me. I highly recommend giving it a try

I had owned the paperback of this for awhile, but then decided to try the audiobook. Unfortunately the male narrator was the same as who does Hardin on the After series audiobooks, I think, and so I had trouble hearing him as this character. So even though I started listening in April, I didn't get around to picking up the paperback to finish it until September. Once I did that, though, it was a very quick read. While it was interesting to see how Ellie and Logan got together finally, their romance a very edgy and drawn out one, probably just a little lacked due to not having any true royalty as a part of them. But not enough to be truly disappointing or make the story not good. Logan had a background that was dark and led into so many twisting points in the story. And it was great to have the two of them with their own types of connections to our other characters from the first two books so that we could still get our fill of the royals. Good, even if not my favorite of the bunch. Also, I posted my review of the 4th book earlier this week, had a deadline thanks to a review tour, but if you read that review, you'll understand it didn't matter to read out of order, even though I didn't.

Royally Endowed by Emma Chase (Audiobook) Narrated by: Shane East, Andi Arndt Series: The Royally Series #3 4.5 Stars - Flirty, fun and such and easy listen! I enjoyed coming back to Wesco and seeing the Royals. I had forgotten how much I wanted to see Ellie and Logan get together. They make a cute couple and I loved that we got to see how long Logan could fight his attraction for her. Great addition to the series. As always, Shane East and Andi Arndt did a fantastic job with Narration.. Though I have to say Mr. East’s voice reminds me of someone (an actor maybe?) and I just can’t place it. I drives me batty.. In a good way haha! If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend it. ~Paragraphs and Petticoats~

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. 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!

Poorly written. I got bored and never finished.

Royally Endowed was one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time. I swear people must’ve thought I was nuts since I would randomly just start laughing out loud. Logan has been Ellie’s bodyguard for years. She’s had a crush on him from the moment their eyes met. It’s not until Logan is faced with losing Ellie forever that he finally gives in to his feelings. Ellie and Logan get to build a relationship over the years by spending time together without their attraction being front and center. That’s one of the things I liked most about them as a couple. While this could be read as a stand alone I don’t understand why anybody would want to skip Nicholas or Henry’s books. With this being what I assume is the last book in the series I loved getting glimpses of the other royals. I also appreciated them having such a sweet epilogue that gives them their happily ever after and wraps up the series nicely.

4.5 stars — Every time I read a book by Ms. Chase, I’m reminded why I love her. There’s just something about each and every one of her characters that draws me in, makes me laugh, makes me feel for them, even when they’re all entirely different. And their interactions are beyond amazing! Always witty and sassy and just the best quips and bantering. This book gave me all that and more. I wasn’t sure how Ellie and Logan’s story was going to go, where it would start, and what parts we would get to see. I was pretty ecstatic when it started back in the summer they first met (coinciding with the timeline of book one), because I was given a taste for what each of them were thinking and feeling. And they didn’t disappoint. Ellie was just as adorable as I expected, so young and optimistic and fun! And Logan was so torn, wanting to do his job to the best of his ability, but also not being able to help what he was slowly feeling for her. I was a bit dismayed with the little time jumps on occasion…I kept wondering how things were working in the interim. Did the security detail rotate between Nicholas, Olivia and Ellie, so that he was occasionally guarding her? That’s what I’m assuming. I think my favourite part was Ellie’s birthday and the paintball game…made me laugh and grin and squee. It was kind of an interesting love story in that way, because it truly was slow-burning. Both had feelings for the other, but they danced around them assuming it wouldn’t work, and just pining quietly. You could see things shifting a bit at a time, but it was slow. I appreciated the tension that it built, and that we got to see them develop a solid base before their relationship moved to a new level. And hoo-boy, once they got to that new steamy level, DAMN!!! Chemistry for days! I made some guesses about the bad guy, and was totally wrong…I think Ms. Chase set up a red herring, and I’m disappointed I fell for it. I LOVED that after the action-y climax, we got a sort of extended epilogue where we got some closure with the other couples as well. And I LOVED the *actual* epilogue. Good stuff. All in all, this series was DA BOMB DOT COM. I have zero regrets, other than wanting more time in my life to read it again.

In Royally Endowed we have a bit of a forbidden romance between Ellie and Logan and that made for some really great slow burning romance and intense moments between these two. Since I started this series I found it highly entertaining with compelling characters that can make you laugh and cry and really get into the story and this book is no different. Ellie is so independent and so sure of herself and what she wants out of life and once she decides she wants Logan there is nothing that can stop her. And Logan was great as well but he did have moments when I wanted to hit him in the head because he was being stubborn, luckily those moments weren’t many. This book was so much fun to read and it definitely transported me to the story from the get go.

Emma Chase does such a great job drawing the reader in with these characters. I loved this. Another great story Emma.

From the moment she met Logan St. James, Ellie Hammond had a huge crush for the royal bodyguard. After years getting to know each other and spending time together, Ellie's feeling grew to something more. But will Logan ever see her as more than a part of his job? Does he feel the same for her? I loved Royally Endowed! The story has the right amount of drama, laughter, twists, and steamy scenes. It hooked me from the first page and I couldn't stop reading! The prologue is amazing and captivating, and the epilogue is so beautiful! Twenty-two year old Ellie Hammond just graduated from college and now wants a happy ending just like her sister. And she wants it with Logan. But she's afraid he'll reject her. She's a very loving and positive person, sassy and fierce. Logan St. James loves his job as a royal bodyguard. He's proud of what he does and isn't afraid of danger. He's very quiet and brooding. He loves Ellie, but doesn't believe he'll ever be enough for her. I loved Royally Endowed! The story has the perfect mix of sweet, sexy, and drama. The characters are amazing and I couldn’t help but cheer for them. Emma Chase gives us a phenomenal book, flawlessly written, making it very easy to connect with the story and the characters. I can't wait to read more about the royal family of Wessco!

I've enjoyed the previous books, but for me, Royally Endowed has definitely been the best of the series. I loved both of the leads. Ellie is the little sister of the girl who married a prince. Logan is a body guard for the royal family. He has been stationed over Ellie for awhile. This storyline backs up a bit to some of the time periods during the other two books. Ellie is finishing high school, and Logan and Ellie are getting to know each other. She crushes on him and he pretends he doesn't notice. It's very cute. I like that Ellie isn't the quiet little virgin and Logan isn't the bad boy. They're just regular humans, with very irregular connections (the royal family). Over the years, a romance becomes undeniable. It's sweet, but it's also realistic in the fact that they can't just lah-di-dah off into the sunset. There are life decisions to be sorted first. It's a mix of fairy tale and real life. Contemporary romance fans should check this out.

An absolutely perfect royal romance! A dash of friends-to-lovers, a heap of forbidden and a whole pile of swoon and feels! This sweet & sexy slow burn builds up to a climax full of naughty passion, unexpected twists and heart stopping emotions. Royally Endowed is the third book in a series of standalones. While technically you can read this is as a standalone, I would highly encourage you to read the first two books in the series first. Not only are they both fantastic books that I absolutely loved as well, but one of my favorite things about this book was that Nicholas & Olivia and Henry & Sarah were all essential parts of the story and plot. Not only did we get a little more of all their HEAs, but their lives are all so tightly intertwined with Ellie and Logan's it just made perfect sense to include them in on the action, so to speak. At the end of the epilogue I was left with an overwhelming feeling of heartwarming satisfaction.

I literally picked this up and could not put it back down. From the prologue to the best final line of a story, I absorbed the words, the characters, the delicious slow burn, and every single details. It was simply amazing! The prologue completely hooked me. I was all in and I just sat and read and absorbed this beautiful story between Logan and Ellie. They were such exceptional characters. Caring and loving and strong and I loved, LOVED, watching their relationship grow from something so pure and innocent to something so much more. I love how it lapsed over time so you see them truly fall for each other. It had a prefect slow burn and I was filled with so much anticipation for them to come together, it was so sweet and meaningful. The longing and the pining, I could feel it. So amazing! I love a build that fills me up, that leaves me greedy wanting more and when you finally get there, you're beside yourself with happiness. An oh man, when they get there, it's pretty freaking fantastic. This was so well written. It was witty and charming, filled with all these special moments and things that just made it a full, well rounded story. I loved the updates of the other couples from previous books and how everything fit together. I loved the bits of fun and humor and that playfulness between Logan and Ellie, they had a wonderful connection. Logan was total book boyfriend material but there was something really special about Ellie. I was drawn to her, watching this crush grown into love, knowing how hard her life had been, rooting for her to get her happily ever after, she was just a wonderful heroine. This beautiful, sweet, outgoing, sometimes naïve girl coming into her own was extraordinary. I love her equally as much as Logan, so total girl crush on her as well. There is a nice bit of mystery happening as well, not super heavy but enough to keep you guessing and I love how that element came into play. Loved the ending and epilogue. Oh my gosh the epilogue. And the very last line of the book. It was the most prefect thing ever. I have loved this series. Inhaled the books. They've touched me. I've connected to them and the characters fully. With each one I think, it can't get better than this and yet, Emma Chase out does herself every time. This was brilliant and beautiful and romantic and so full of love. A totally addicting read I couldn't put down! Complimentary copy received for honest review.

ALL THE STARS! Every single one, I tell ya. 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.

“My gut is my best friend, my conscience, my most lethal asset.” “He makes me feel wanted. Valued and important, like I’m someone worth protecting. Knowing this man would give his life to shield me, guard me from pain or danger–it’s a heady thing.” “The Queen was right. Love isn’t a cure; it doesn’t magically solve every problem. But it makes solving those problems worth it. Love is our inspiration, our motivation….and our reward.” Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! Did I ever love this book! Royally Endowed enchanted and captivated me. From swoon worthy moments to moments that just gave you all the feels, this book consumed my heart and was more than I could have ever imagined…. Told from dual points of view, Royally Endowed is the third book in the Royally Series and it follows the story of Ellie and Logan. For as long as Ellie can remember, she had her sights set on Logan. He was her fighter, her protector, he closest of friends. He is fierce and intense and everything that Ellie could ever want. But, Logan and Ellie could never be. Her attraction to Logan is forbidden as he is her bodyguard. Even knowing that they could never be more than friends, that doesn’t stop the pull Ellie feels for Logan. Ellie is young and doesn’t know where she sees herself in 5 years, but she does know one thing: she wants her own HEA….Logan has spent his life working hard and building the career and life he’s always dreamed. He is respected and hard working. You will never find a more loyal man. He has everything that he could possibly want…that is except for one thing; the woman that makes his heart sing. For years Logan has done his duty and watched over Ellie. But, as the years have gone by, his feelings have progressed. The pull is becoming too hard to fight. Logan knows that he and Ellie come from two different classes, but sometimes want and need are more important than logic. When it comes to love, there is a thin line between right and wrong, life and duty. Will Logan and Ellie get the happiness and life that they’ve always wanted?? There is only one way to find out… Royally Endowed is by far and away my favorite story in this series to date. It’s no secret that over the course of this series, author Emma Chase has enraptured me with her smart writing and brilliant story-lines. The characters just call to you and before you know it, they consume every piece of your soul, making you fall desperately for them. And that most certainly is the case with Royally Endowed. I fell for this story straight away. I mean how can you go wrong with royalty and the hot bodyguard. Knowing just that little tidbit, you just know this story is going to be amazing and I promise you, it does not disappoint. Logan and Ellie’s story draws you in from the very first page and just utterly consumes you. Before you know it, you are blowing through the pages at a rapid pace. Ellie and Logan’s story pulled at my heart, while giving me all the feels. My emotions are all over the place in the best way possible and I seriously can’t get enough. Royally Endowed was everything that I wanted and needed in Logan and Ellie’s story. It was full of angst and romance and swoon worthy moments. There was action and a bit of suspense. And just when I thought I couldn’t get enough, this story gave me a little bit more. I truly enjoyed everything about this story and couldn’t think of a better way to spend my day than getting lost in Ellie and Logan.

Royally Endowed brought the “forbidden” love story between the Princess’ sister and the Prince’s bodyguard. The moment Olivia married Nicholas, Ellie’s life changed forever. She wasn’t a simple girl anymore, who could hang out with whoever she wanted or do whatever she wanted. She had an unspoken royal duty and she was really happy to fulfill it. But there was something—or certain someone—who always kept her feet on the ground of the “mortals”, if you know what I mean, and despite she never hid her attraction toward Logan, she always had her eyes and head on her future in the royal society. But…. along the years they’ve known each other, Logan was always there for her, taking good care of her, and not always because it was his duty as a bodyguard of the Royal Family, but because they became friends. And slowly the crush turned into something meaningful, stronger and beautiful. Something worth risking everything for. And finally, they understood that “forbidden” was only in their heads and they could have their HEA. Logan is as amazing as I imagined he would be. He’s loyal, determined, focused and very, very protective. I love he wanted to live up his expectations, became a better person despite all the odds were against it. And Ellie is even more amazing. Her energy and love has no bounds. She’s intelligent and caring and his cheerfulness brings a perfect balance to Logan’s serious personality. I love how Ellie never hid her feelings toward Logan, and despite he never show any kind of reciprocity—he fought his feelings as hard as he fought the bad guys against the Royal Family—, she never for a moment felt discouraged. Their timing was perfect. Amazing addition to the Royally Series. 200% recommended.

Sometimes the heart knows what it wants rules be damned. It was from when Ellie was seventeen that Logan felt something for her. But being a guard for the royal family it was unheard of. So he ignored his feelings but always protected her and the royals. If he ignored the feelings they would go away, right? Wrong... Ellie always felt that special spark for Logan. But she never made it known to him for fear he didn't feel the same. But when the heart is involved you can ignore it for only so long. Then again didn't Nicholas give up the throne for Olivia. Emma Chase does such an amazing job with Ellie and Logan coming to terms with their relationship. It's not easy and sometimes as Queen Lenora reminds Ellie love cannot always fix everything. Logan must make a choice between the woman he loves and his responsibility to the royal family. His job is everything to him. It makes him what and who he is. Yet his love for Ellie is nothing he has ever or will ever feel for anyone else. Two passions in his life that are so different. But he must choose one. He cannot have both. The love he feels for Ellie outweighs everything else. His decision was not taken lightly. How could he possibly give up something that makes him who he is. It isn't until a talk with Prince Nicholas that sort of makes everything clear. Love may not fix everything but it does make everything better.

Logan is no Prince Charming, but he comes pretty close. He's a lover, a protector and fighter. As Ellie discovers, loving him is anything but easy, yet she can't seem to help herself. With Royally Endowed, Emma Chase gives readers the sweetness of a fairy tale, the thrill of adventure and the heat of an erotic novel. Ms. Chase makes sure that readers never give up the fantasy while delivering a taste of real love.
