Genres: Adult, Entangled: Contemporary Select, Romance

 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.

12 Steps to Mr Right, centers around Savannah Gamble a dating coach.  After a bad relationship in college, she creates a 12 step program to discover mr right. 

The reason for the creation of her program is Lincoln Wells.  Linc comes back into Savannah's life and he is incredibly charismatic and she finds it incredibly difficult to resist his charms.  Lincoln and Savannah have an incredibly strong chemistry, which makes it extra hard for her to resist.  Linc's personality raises red flags the premise of Savannah's program of men who are not suitable as a mister right.  

The story line is enjoyable but on the slow side.  Savannah is a fairly neurotic character and you spend a lot of time with her internal thoughts and monologues.   I really didn't enjoy the lengthy monologues.   

The characters of Linc and Ivy, Savannah's best friend and Linc's cousin make the story more interesting and I actually found them to be more like-able and endearing than Savannah.  

The banter, the sharing of crossword puzzles and the general interactions between Savannah and Linc are what drew me into this story.   Overall this book was a little long winded for me but i'm sure others who enjoy a friends to lovers romance, will enjoy this contemporary romance. 


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.
