Contemporary Romance, LGBTQ
After growing up in a rough part of town, George Maguire worked his way out of Manchester and to a career as a design engineer. Alexander van Amsberg, an architecture student at the University of Edinburgh, wasn't the sort of guy he normally had explosive, hotel-room one-night-stands with. Alex was charming, classy, and, as George later learns, Prince of the Netherlands.
Fate brings them together again, and Alex makes sure to get his sexy stranger's phone number this time. Despite all the reasons why they shouldn't work, something clicks, and Alex thinks that this time, he might have found the right guy. But Alex's aristocratic ex stirs up trouble in the press for George and his humble family, and Alex realizes he has to get real about having a boyfriend from the wrong side of town.
While George acknowledges his modest upbringing, he doesn't let anyone insult his family. Life's no fairy tale, and regardless of his royal title, Alex might destroy his one chance for happily ever after.

What George thought was just a casual hookup turned out to be much more... and with the Prince, no less.
George and Alex met while cruising the bar scene and had a hot one night stand together. It wasn't until later on that George found out that Alex wasn't just another guy, but a Prince of Netherlands.
This makes their second meeting a little more interesting. The spark is definitely still there and it's more than for just another one night together. They decide to try out the whole dating thing on for size.
Turns out, they were awesome together. A little too awesome. So awesome, that they were a bit boring, really. This story is very low angst, which I like, but nothing much really happened.
There was the typical Big Misunderstanding, but that didn't really make things any more exciting for me. George had a lot to deal with in regards to the paparazzi, which he was not used to, but he really handled it all in stride. He was a very likable character, as was Alex. Both guys were normal, nice characters; even if Alex was a prince. They were a pleasure to read about and easy to relate to.
I'd say MY PRINCE is another enjoyable read from Anna Martin. George and Alex's story was... pleasant. It was calm and low key. Nothing major, but a nice read.
