12 steps to finding Mr. Right, composed by dating coach extraordinaire Savannah Gamble

1: Admit to being powerless over your attraction to the wrong type of guy. (Like Lincoln Wells, who broke your heart after an unforgettable one-night stand.)
2: Believe Mr. Right is out there.
3: Take inventory of past mistakes. (See step #1.)
4: Make a list of qualities you want in a man. (Avoid charming baseball players/reason you made these rules in the first place)
5: Take charge of your own life.
6: Learn to love yourself.
7: Sort the hookup guys from the relationship guys. (Avoid a painful brushoff after an amazing night together.)
8: Never, ever settle. (Even if the chemistry is off-the-charts.)
9: Don't believe you can change a guy. (Once a commitment-phobe, always a commitment-phobe)
10: Communicate your needs.
11: Open your heart & love fully. (Still working on this one...)
12: Don't ever, ever stray from the steps.

NA ReviewMy Thoughts

12 Steps to Mr. Right is a fantastic romantic comedy by Cindi Madsen. I really, really loved this book. It reminded me of a mash up of (the sister of) How to Lose a Guy in 10 days and He’s Just not That into You. I think 12 Steps to Mr. Right is screaming to be made into a movie. Savannah’s voice would make an amazing rom com movie character. If you are a fan of romantic comedies, this is a must read book for you. (and if you are like me and stuck in a hurricane watch/state of emergency, this is the perfect book to snuggle under the covers with and watch the rain and wind blow all around you.)

12 Steps to Mr. Right is told from Savannah’s point of view, and I absolutely LOVED her. She is smart, and driven and so poised. Not to mention she has a great sense of humor. That was what I liked the most about the dynamic between her and Linc. They could joke around with each other and spar back and forth in a friendly way. I am like Savannah in that regard. I need that in a relationship. Linc is pretty great too, but it is hard to hold a candle to Savannah. I did still love Linc though. 12stepsteaser8

I was super interested in seeing how their past would be addressed, but buckle in because you don’t get that answer for a while. First, you get to see them get adjusted to how they fit into each other’s lives in the present, which was a lot of fun as well. I really was digging Savannah’s workshop sessions as well. Can you tell that I pretty much loved everything about this story? Because I so did. 12 Steps to Mr. Right is the kind of story that I would shush people for interrupting me. My poor boyfriend got shushed a good 6 times before he finally got the hint that I was “do not disturb while reading” mode.


Bottom line: Before I get too gushy, just let me leave it at this. Read 12 Steps to Mr. Right. Trust me. If you like romantic comedies, you will love this book. It has great characters, a great storyline and a really engaging romance. This is going on my re-read shelf for sure. Thank you Cindi Madsen! 12 Steps to Mr. Right is one of my favorite reads of 2016.

About Cindi Madsen

Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.

    Glad to see you enjoyed this one! I read it too, but didn’t enjoy it quite as much as you did. I liked it but I didn’t end up loving it as much as I thought I would. I really liked Savannah too! She was a great character
