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.
This is my first Royally book, and I honestly don’t know why I always do this to myself. I almost always start in the middle of series’, and I really need to start working on that.
Ellie has had a crush on Logan for so long, but she was just too young for him at the time. Logan has had a hard life, so the opportunity he got working for the royal family is one he takes very seriously. He knows that if he takes Ellie for himself, there will be consequences that will end up with him losing his job.
This romance was a slow burn, but I didn’t mind it at all. It didn’t feel dragging, and I enjoyed all the chapters from the past until the present. It was nice to read about Ellie and Logan’s connection from so long ago until they finally act upon it. It made it even more special, because they have genuinely been in love with each other for years.
The epilogue was so sweet, and I’m so happy to see Ellie and Logan get their happy ending.
