First I fell for HRH Prince Nicholas, in Royally Screwed. If a Prince abdicating for love doesn’t make you swoon, I don’t know what will…
Then I fell even harder for his little brother – the rebel – Prince Henry, in Royally Matched. He quickly became the new King of my heart.
This time it was their Royal bodyguard and trusted friend, Logan St. James, that had me swooning… and he had me swooning HARD.
Book three of this fantastically addictive, sexy series, focuses on one of Prince Nicholas’ highest ranking bodyguards, Logan St. James, and Prince Nicholas’ future sister-in-law, Ellie Hammond.
The story takes place over several years, starting off with an eighteen year old Ellie; in her final year of High School, newly famous (thanks to her big sisters Royal fiancée), and trying to keep her families business afloat – having convinced her sister to let her take the reigns, while she visits her betrothed’s home country.
Given the task of protecting Ellie while her sister is away, Logan and his team of burly men become important daily features in Ellie’s life – taking her to and from School, making sure her home is secure, her friends don’t get her in to trouble, and keeping her safe from Royal fanatics. With her sister gone, a mother that passed away, and a father who drinks himself into oblivion everyday, Logan is one of the only adults around to take care of her.
“Logan St. James. Bodyguard. Totally badass. Sexiest guy I have ever seen—and that includes books, movies and TV, foreign and domestic. He’s the perfect combo of boyishly could-go-to-my-school kind of handsome, mixed with dangerously hot and tantalizingly mysterious. If comic-book Superman, James Dean, Jason Bourne and some guy with the smoothest, most perfectly pitched, British-Scottish-esque, Wessconian-accented voice all melded together into one person, they would make Logan fucking St. James.” – Ellie
Ellie’s attraction to Logan is impossible for him to ignore, but Logan is a professional. He keeps things frustratingly platonic for the longest time! But the slow building romance was that much more delicious because of it.
“I’ll save her. Because that’s who I am. That’s what I do. Why I’m here – the only reason I’m here. And she belongs to me. Ellie is mine to have and to hold. To save and keep. Forever and always.” – Logan
Ellie was an All-Star of a heroine! She was vivacious, intelligent, selfless, sweet and kind. She liked to have fun, but it didn’t come at the cost of her grades or her responsibilities. She was a straight-A student and her High School’s Valedictorian, which was impressive enough, but even more so when you consider this – she achieved those things while running on minimal sleep (due to waking up to bake pies at 4am every morning), and with very little adult supervision.
As for Logan, he was the perfect catch! Born into a family of criminals, he fought to be something more, and succeeded. While his father and brother wasted away in prison, he chose to serve in the Army, then moved on to working for the Royal family of Wessco. He was trustworthy, respectful, kind, tough and compassionate. He was also, obviously, sexy as f*ck. Possibly my favourite thing about him – he wasn’t a cliché manwhore. He was friendly with Ellie but he didn’t cross any lines until he was good and ready, and I really respected him for that.
As with the previous books in this series, this story was told in dual POV – which I loved. There was a good amount of drama, some shocks, a crazy stalker, and plenty of sexual chemistry.
While Henry is still the King of my heart among these men, Logan has now safely secured himself a little piece of it too.
This was a fantastic addition to an already stellar series.
