Royally Endowed by Emma Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“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.”
I’m FLYING…FLOATING on Cloud Nine and I can’t stop!!! Royally Endowed by Emma Chase injected me with some serious SWOON SERUM where I still feel a HEADY HIGH! Royally Endowed is DAZZLING, DREAMY and oh so DIVINE. This fairytale felt like I was experiencing a dream. My face was etched with a dreamy look. This story shot STARS IN MY EYES!!! I still can’t stop SMILING and SWOONING!
In the first few pages, Emma Chase made me feel the plight of a lovesick and broken man. I broke from this broken man. My heart hurt as I felt his sting of rejection sting me.
What I feel for her is the one thing in my life that makes sense. That matters. But I never told her that.
Logan St. James, panty-melting hot bodyguard for the Prince of Wessco, is royally endowed. But it’s not his package that has the younger sister of the Princess smitten; it’s Logan’s huge heart. This beautiful bodyguard is sexy, swoony, strong, and selfless. I LOVED LOGAN so hard!!!
“You’re always doing this,” she whispers.
I fell in love with the bubbly and bold personality of beautiful Ellie in Royally Screwed, the first book in this series. Princess Olivia’s younger sister is all grown up now and Ellie is a breath of fresh air on a gloomy day. I could feel her sparkling personality through the pages, this beauty inside and out.
“Don’t want you to fall.”
But he’d catch me if I did.
Ellie can’t help but be smitten with the white knight, her bodyguard, who is always saving her. Logan doesn’t want to want the girl he guarded as a teen who is now all woman. A relationship with whom he is guarding can’t happen.
“You look beautiful, Ellie.”
Oh did I MELT!!! I melted into a puddle of goo. Logan is sweetness and swoon with a side of sexy. Logan WOWED me in every way!
“I burn for you, sweet girl. I dream of you, even when I’m awake.”
A relationship beyond friends is FORBIDDEN but fate wants to pull the strings.
“Do you feel it too?”
I would give anything…I would die for the chance to go back and tell her now. Tell her the truth.
“I feel it too, Ellie. I always have.”
I did not expect this story to twist and turn itself around me where I FELT ALL THE FEELS. I did not expect to CRY sad tears along with my happy ones. I did not expect to feel so much. I FELT this love story stream through me, sweeping me away. I FELT the passion mixed with promise for this heart-worthy hero and heroine. I FELT every emotion. I FELT EVERYTHING!!!
Royally Endowed is a HEARTFELT, HEADY, HEAD-IN-THE-CLOUDS love story that soars straight to the soul. Fierce. Forbidden. Fabulous. This slow burn of a breathless book seduces with sweetness and swoon. Royally Endowed is WHOLEHEARTEDLY ROMANTIC, a fairytale of feels where you dare to dream.
Emma Chase has WOWED ME again with her superb storytelling skills!!! With its laugh-out-loud humor, off-the-charts chemistry, passion, smolder, strength, sweetness, swoon, soul, and sooo much heart…Royally Endowed is EVERYTHING!!! Emma Chase paints the perfect picture of palace life where you’ll feel as if you are part of the royal family of Wessco too.

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.
But then the mood shifts, as if the air becomes thicker, weighted, more . . . sultry.
Because slowly, Logan sinks down to one knee in front of me—looking in my eyes the whole time. In this position, I could touch his shoulders, comb my fingers through his thick, dark hair. He’s the perfect height for me to bend down and kiss his mouth—the perfect height for him to kiss me back . . . in a lot of places.
My breath hitches. And I wonder he feels it too.
There’s a sound of tearing Velcro, and Logan takes something off his ankle—a holster, with a small silver knife, about three inches long.
“Keep this on you all the time,” he says seriously. “Just in case. If you wear a skirt, the strap will fit around your thigh.”
And I almost laugh. Most girls get a ring from a guy on his knees. I get a murder weapon. But still, it makes me feel safe . . . watched over. Like I’m something precious that deserves to be protected.
I take the knife from him, testing the surprisingly solid, heavy weight of it in my hand. I press my index finger to the tip.
Logan grabs my wrist tightly. “Careful. It’s sharp.”
There’s a small, painless nick, a tiny bead of blood, so I put my finger in my mouth, sucking.
And Logan’s watching me again.
Watching my mouth.
His chest seems to rise just a little faster, and his throat ripples when he swallows. He bends his head, curves his strong back, and then I feel his hands on my ankle, securing the strap. His touch is warm and self-assured. It’s the way he always moves—confident and experienced. Logan knows his body and he knows how to use it, in every way possible.
I almost moan. The sound is in the back of my throat, but I keep it trapped. I never knew the ankle was an erogenous zone, but it sure as hell is now. A hot pulse of pleasure streaks from Logan’s fingers on my bare skin, up my thigh, between my legs.
And I throb there, growing swollen and heavy as he keeps his hands on me.
Can he tell? Does he know? He’s so aware of everything, always so attuned, I wonder if he can sense my arousal . . . feel it in the air that clings between us.
A MUST-READ ROMANCE!
