(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.

Cindi Madsen is an author I only discovered a few months ago, but I fell in love with her style! 12 steps to Mr. Right was just another example of why I enjoy her books.

Savannah is a dating coach who teaches women how to find their own Mr. Right. Having recently split from her boyfriend (who was obviously NOT Mr. Right) Savannah uses her 12 steps to help everyone. Then one morning she bumps into Linc, an old flame that she had a one night stand with. She didn’t go into it thinking it was a one night stand but he did; thus, the rules were born! Both Savannah and Linc are older and wiser now but Savannah is still very guarded.

Its a bit like The Matchmaker’s Playbook by Rachel Van Dyken. Linc isn’t a client but you get to see some of the quirky aspects of a job as a dating coach through Savannah’s clients. While I understand Savannah’s wariness, it seems that at times, she can’t accept and follow her own advice. The only really ‘bad’ relationship event was her one night stand with Linc. That hardly seems like enough to make her this wary of men in general. So, I did struggle with that at first, but if you just roll with it and accept that Savannah is who she is, then the book is enjoyable.

Madsen’s writing style is what I really love. Her characters truly come alive when I read. They are believable, imperfect, and totally lovable! She weaves humor into the story in such a way in never feels forced. The plot flows well and doesn’t seem to drag or speed. Madsen is just one of those authors I know I will get exactly what I want: an enjoyable escape.
