Savannah is a dating coach, the one you turn to when you’ve had one bad relationship after another, your faith in love is faltering, and you want to give up, but the promise of Mr. Right being out there—possibly just around the corner—still calls to you? Tells you not to give up or you might miss him and some other woman will snag him? She teaches classes on 12 STEPS to MR. RIGHT. They help you get rid of old dating habits, work past heartbreaks, weed through the frogs to find your own Prince Charming and a relationship that’ll actually go somewhere. Unfortunately Savannah has been powerless to her own attraction to the wrong type of guy, but now that she knows how to avoid letting it get in the way she could manage her own dating life.
Ivy, Savannah’s best friend since college, neglected to tell her that her cousin Linc returned after an injury thus ending his baseball career. He’s the reason for several of her 12 rules.
What really sucked was she lost the friendship they had together and all the time they’d spent laughing and talking after their one night stand, so she doubly experienced the rejection. With his blue eyes, he is sexy and strong, who hugs you so tight you can’t stop thinking about him and the spark he caused that you haven’t felt in a long time. He wants to rekindle their friendship, but if Savannah lets him in and trusts him again he could not only break her heart, but destroy her business. Is she willing to do that? You’ll have to read 12 STEPS TO MR. RIGHT to find out.
The banter between characters was funny, genuine, very well developed. I laughed out loud, cried, wanted to reach through the pages and choke a character, and thoroughly enjoyed their crossword puzzles and electrifying chemistry. Could they have it all, best friends and a love that’ll actually go somewhere? You’ll have to read 12 STEPS TO MR. RIGHT to find out, but it’ll be worth the time you take to read it. This is a contemporary second chance romance, pretty steamy toward the end, but in the end a HEA. Although this is my first Cindi Madsen book, it won’t be my last! Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 16 and older. I received an ARC copy via IndieSage through NetGalley in exchange for a blog tour review.
