12 Steps to Mr. Right was a hilariously filled fun romantic tale.
Savannah Gamble knows bad boys, she knows all about handing your heart to someone who doesn't deserve it and won't handle it with care. She knows so much about the red flags and warning signs that she's offering her assistence to other women, trying to help them find their perfect match and avoid all the heartache while looking; all while not moving on herself. I loved Savannah, she's funny and cute, sweet and smart and focused on what she wants, but I enjoyed how Linc sort of disrupted her, like she knew she should avoid him, not allow herself to resort to the past of the relationship, but she couldn't help herself.
Linc was a fun character too. I loved that he was unashamed of who he was, even though he realized he wanted to be a different person than he was in the past. He was sweet and honest, and often times left me laughing. I enjoyed the interactions between him and Savannah. I loved that he knew right away he wanted his friendship with her back, and wasn't shy about sharing that.
This story is full of feisty sass, banter, and additional bit sof humor all mixed into a story that shows sometimes you find Mr. Right in the last place you would have looked and that its okay to make exceptions to rules. This story is one of second chances, and friends to lovers, which are always some of my favorite tropes, but Madsen has found a way to deliver the story with a different take, and done it in a witty manner and steady pace.
