Audiobook Review: Royally Endowed (Royally, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Royally Endowed by Emma Chase

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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

The heroine: Ellie Hammond – younger sister to Olivia who married the crown prince of Wessco. When Olivia left for Wessco for the summer, Ellie is left with Logan for a bodyguard/helper at their coffee and pie shop. She is about to graduate from high school and go to college.

The Hero(es): Logan St. James – personal bodyguard/security for the crown prince Nicholas of Wessco. When Nicholas and Olivia return to Wessco for months, Logan is left in charge of the security of Ellie. Logan comes from a family of criminals, but after his stint in the military where he was in Nicholas’s unit. He was hired as security for the royal family.

The Story: Ellie and Logan had eyes for each other since they first met, but Ellie was too young and Logan was in charge of her safety. He watched her as she grew from a teenager to a college graduate and was there for her when she needed a shoulder to lean on.

I liked the story overall but I didn’t like the beginning how there was a few scenes and then nine months passed, a few more and another nine months, then 3 years. I suppose it was necessary because Ellie was in high school when they first met and a more worldly woman when things start to happen.

The narration again was terrific with the same two that did the first two books and both have very pleasant voices. I have been surprised at both of their ability to portray different accents and different types of people. Shane East was terrific as a man from the wrong side of the tracks that has been working with Royalty for years. He had a more working class European accent in some scenes and more refined in other scenes. Andi Arndt was a refined royal in the last book and back to a working class American in this book.

The trope of the bodyguard falling for the woman he is protecting and vice versa is a well used one, though this had the added issue of royalty included. Ellie as a sister to Olivia who is now a princess since her marriage to Nicholas, is now considered part of the royal family along with her sister. So Ellie is able to live at the castle and attend royal gatherings while in Wessco.
