    Fun read

    Being burned more than one Savannah Gamble has devised 12 easy steps to spot the red flags that will surely lead to heart break and help women find that perfect one they are seeking. Now she's a dating coach teaching others her methods. So why then is she still all alone? And why can she not resist the devilish Lincoln?? Lincoln is about to turn her world upside down and there's doesn't seem to be anything she can do to stop it. This is a really cute fun read but I felt like the romance part was a little light for my taste. A little closer to chick lit than romance. That doesn't make it a bad read though and it's one I would definitely recommend.

    Fun Read

    *received an ARC via NetGalley* This is definitely a fun read I recommend to those who love the RomComs. Gamble is a dating coach who helps girls to avoid disasters by recognizing the signs, the "red flags" that immediately mark them as 'Somedays', commitment-phobes, and smooth talkers just looking for a one-night stand. These 12 steps to finding your Mr. Right are derived from a mysterious (okay not that mysterious) past that forever changed how she saw love with another potential. Add that, with a blast from the past, and a few other unknown variables, and you've got yourself a butt load of trouble and mischief. I really liked this because of how light and funny it could be while still being able to put in those serious little deep scenes. Gamble came off as a very intelligent and put-together woman when I first read this, so it was interesting to see her slowly unravel and lose herself... or rather, rediscover herself, as in the person she truly was before she hid under all those safeguards. At times she was annoying and I was totally on Linc's side, but that's one of the things I love about this book, that it could make me feel so many things like happiness and frustration. It definitely wasn't boring lol

    Fun, lighthearted second chance romance!

    Savannah Gamble runs a successful 12 step dating program, helping women avoid sabotaging their chances at a happy ever after by providing a series of rules to follow. It’s something she developed after her own particular heartbreak, a friendship in college that ended with one night that stepped over the line and broke her heart. To her dismay the man in question has shown up back in her life again. Lincoln Wells is her best friend Ivy’s cousin so avoiding him is out of the question, especially when he gets a job at Azure, a bar she frequents. Linc wants to rekindle their friendship, and despite knowing that she could be in for heartbreak again, she can’t resist the urge to see whether they can get back to the easy camaraderie they once had before sex ruined their friendship. But the attraction between them hasn’t dissipated in all these years. Will Savannah’s rules keep her on the straight and narrow or prevent her from taking a second chance on love? This is a sweet slow burn romance with the friendship between Linc and Savannah taking center stage for most of the story, and the actual sexy romance part limited to the last third. I’d say it’s a combination chick-lit/romance story, as there is equal time given to Savannah’s dating clients (and her own dates initially) as there is to the relationship with Linc. But the author’s trademark sense of humour and lighthearted writing style makes it a very enjoyable read. Savannah takes her job very seriously (unlike her last boyfriend, who dumped her for a job in DC) and has used her own past experiences to shape her program. She’s had several successful matches come out of the program, and we get to see glimpses of one of those relationships as they prepare for their wedding (where she’ll unfortunately have to face her ex-boyfriend as he also knows the couple in question). We also get to see a new client find herself a partner. So there are several happy endings in the story, not just for Savannah and Lincoln. Lincoln comes across as a fun loving, friendly, charming guy. He might have been a player in college, but he has changed those ways, even though Savannah is reluctant to see it. We find out why things ended between them the way they did in college, and it’s clear that both of them were at fault in not communicating better. There are several fun scenes where Linc takes Savannah to various venues so she can check their potential as places to meet new people, including some baseball themed outings as Linc is a freshly retired ball player, still missing the career he thought would be a longer term option before injury changed his plans. He coaches a little league team and seems intent on putting roots down and wanting Savannah to be part of his new life. I loved seeing the development of their relationship, from re-establishing their friendship to becoming more. The story is an entertaining one filled with some funny moments and poignant ones too, but with an overall lighthearted romantic feel. In the end Savannah owns up to her own mistakes in misjudging Linc and we get a sweet ending for the couple (and some sage dating advice!). 4 stars.

    New Beginnings

    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. FAVORITE PASSAGES: -the right guy would walk into my life and make me see why it never worked with anyone else. -“New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.”

    I think I'm in love.

    There is nothing stale about Cindi Madsen's brand of humorous romances. 12 Steps to Mr. Right is a prime example of just how enjoyable her stories can be. She delivers sage advice via fast paced sass and her characters are such a hoot that they knocked me on my ***. Savannah seems to have it all together. Doling out romance advice to the lovelorn and dateless of the world, but when it comes to her own matters of the heart she's as clueless as the people she helps. Not even her step by step road map can save her from the whirlwind that Linc pulls her into and before she can save herself, her downfall begins. The blind leading the blind has never proved to be so entertaining. I think I'm in love.
