Peek Inside 12 Steps to Mr. Right

Savannah Gamble might be a dating coach, but that doesn’t mean she’s got her own love life figured out. When her former best friend, Lincoln Wells—the same guy who broke her heart after an unforgettable one-night stand—reenters her life, all her rules point to the fact he’s not her Mr. Right and she should stay far, far away. But rules can’t always compete with chemistry.

Dating coach Savannah Gamble is used to helping women find their perfect Mr. Right. Through her twelve-step program, anyone can find happiness. Too bad she has so much trouble following her own rules. Specifically Rule #2: Believe Mr. Right is out there. That’s her own dirty little secret, though.

After Lincoln Wells—the original “one who got away”—reenters her life, Savannah knows she has to stick to the rules and stay away from Linc if she ever wants her own happily-ever-after. Even if the chemistry she has with Linc is off the charts, she knows that once a commitmentphobe, always a commitmentphobe, and breaking her own rules puts her on the road to a broken heart…no matter how much fun the ride might be...


"A refreshing, modern twist on love! Madsen's smart and sexy banter had me hooked from page one - I never wanted it to end!" - Rachel Harris, NYT bestselling author

12 Steps to Mr. Right was fun, sweet and entertaining second chance love story.

12 Steps to Mr. Right is what I would consider to be a romance on the sweeter side, but it was also kind of a sneaky romance in that for the majority of the book, the hero and heroine weren't officially a couple. I liked this book quite ...more

This was a hoot. Savannah was so so wrong and so right as well. She had such blinders on when it came to men and she fought so hard that she almost lost love.

Savannah was hurt by Linc in college. He didn’t mean to but he was trying to do right. Sad but true. To deal with this hurt she embraced a new ...more

12 Steps to Mr. Right is not a sexually driven romance story. I say it that way so that future readers understand that even tho these two do get sexy with it (lol), their journey is more on re-establishing their friendship and developing it romantically. And it was really well done. Their story was ...more

I knew I would thoroughly enjoy this book from the moment I begin reading it.

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.
