Attorney Carolena Baretti has had a rough past, she has promised to herself that she will no longer be responsible for anyone and by that she has decided to not marry. But soon her plans to stay single are thrown out the window that minute she meets Crown Prince Valentino while vacationing with her best-friend Abby and her husband Vincenzo. The attraction between the two begins right from the start, and as the two start to spend more time together, the more she realizes just how much she is attracted to Valentino. Crown Prince Valentino knows the he has a duty to the crown and his family. After been betrothed to marry a princess for a while, it's already set that his destiny is to become a king one day. But his long interest in volcanoes has made him think twice about becoming a king and giving up on his dream profession. His mother has made it clear to him that he is to marry soon, but after seeing Carolena for the first time, he must decide whether or not it's worth giving up the throne to marry the one he loves.
I really enjoyed reading Becoming the Prince's Wife, it was a sweet yet fast-paced romance story. The characters had their troubles and they had to learn to overcome their pasts in order to be able to move on. Carolena's character was a bit frustrating to read, it took her a while to finally accept her feelings for Valentino. Whereas Valentino's character is sweet and romantic, he is definitely a true prince that wants to please Carolena and give up everything for her. While both characters had their personalities, the writing style felt a bit too rushed, especially the ending. I'm still not sure if I liked the writing as much. But the overall was good and the ending was satisfying to read.

This Crown prince Valentino is hot, charming, caring, hard working and romantic. He has a job that is fascinating to me and different from what most princes do.
I really like the characters and how deep they got in their lives. I love characters that I can care about what happens to them.
Carolena Baretti is a lawyer who is on vacation with friend Abby and her husband Crown Prince Vincenzo Di Laurentis or Arancia they were going to neighboring Gemelli. Carolena is bright, is not looking to marry.
Lots of drama, romance and family relationships. Did not want to put back till I was finished.
Valentino has been engaged for years to someone his parents picked. He promised when the time came for him to rule he would be married. He also promised that the day the date was announced he would be faithful to the princess.
Valentino sees Carolena diving into the pool and stops in his tracks to meet her. Carolena does not want his attention and does not want to be around him. Valentino does not want to leave her.
Their first date he takes her up to Mount Etna where the public can't go and shares his love of volcanoes with her. They get into deep personal subjects. They feel very strong for each other.
The Queen tells Prince Valentino that next week they will announce his wedding date. He will then be crowned after the wedding.
Valentino always keeps his promises. Now he wants to break them. He tells Carolena and gives her the power to decide there future.
I liked this story. Did not want to see it end.
I will read more of Rebecca's novels in the future based on this book.
I was given this ebook to read and in return promised to give honest review of it by Netgalley and Harlequin.
