Minx by Maggie Adams is a five star novel. I love how the author uses an older character and makes her sexy and necessary again. This was a nice quick read as we got to know Miranda. As an older woman, she thought she needed to take a break from relationships and just find herself. Then she finds herself, literally, in the lap of a complete stranger. He is gorgeous and with a voice that makes her weak. When he offers her a job, she knows she needs to take it even though she doesn’t believe she is qualified. After she starts the job, she realizes she can do the job and she isn’t too bad at it. When she meets her beau’s brother, she can’t decide whom she likes more. Then things start happening at the business the brothers are in charge of and she might have to take sides.
Minx was a wonderful read by Maggie Adams and is also the first book that I have read by this author. The first thing that really made me want to read this book was the blurb, it was interesting enough to make me want to read about Miranda, the main characters but vague enough that I wasn’t quite sure what the story would be about so it was kind of like going in blind! I liked that I had no expectations about what was going to happen. I ended up loving Miranda! She was such a fantastic character to read about. She was so genuine and relatable – there were so many times when I just got what she was going through. I loved seeing her character evolve as the story progressed and I could definitely read more stories about her, I kind of felt there was so much more for her after the story finished.
I absolutely 100% recommend this story and I am looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future.

Minx By Maggie Adams is one of the best Romcom’s I’ve read in a while. I found myself laughing at times and smiling really big at others. I found myself having a hard time putting it down till the end. This is my first read by this Author and it definitely wont be my last . I felt like I the characters were very well developed and easily relatable. I found myself feeling like I was right there with them. Miranda is a lady who has been thrown a curve ball. Can she find her HEA? Find out what happens next. I highly recommend reading this Book.
Off the bat this is a short story, and a hea. It’s about an older woman who already has grown kids and her marriage has fallen apart. She has a very odd set of friends. Honestly it reminded me about a group like sex in the city girls. So it went at a semi fast pace, at one moment she is asked about the divorce and the next it felt like she was already divorced and working. At first I thought the main guy was going to be Ritter, but then it became noticeable that it was going to be Reed. They start their affair and yes there is a hiccup and he basically dismisses her. This is where to me the drama happens and I liked it. The only thing that I didn’t like was that she didn’t make him grovel for forgiveness. Over all it’s a cute cheesy short story with a happily ever after.
Minx by Maggie Adams is a fun, quick read. The story is about Miranda, who has been not living her best life. Her husband leaves her and she has to rebuild her life. After having been focused on her husband and kids she has to learn to take care of herself. I like her humor and that she is not a perfect, model person. She has flaws and learns to run with them. Her friends are a great addition to the story but do not overpower Miranda’s character. This is my first book by this author but after Minx I will keep an eye out for her other books.
Review by @sherimichelle1
Minx by Maggie Adams is a fun and entertaining book that will have you laughing out loud the whole way through.
I hadn’t been sure if I would like this book when I first picked it up. I had really connected with the blurb yet it had had such good reviews. I am definitely glad I gave this book a chance.
The main character was not just likeable but so relatable. She was fun, witty and thoroughly enjoyable. The journey she has to go on is one that could happen to anyone and it was great to see the way the author handled it all with such ease.
Ms Adams has a great writing style. The story flowed well and I found it to be well paced from start to finish. This was a thoroughly enjoyable book.
Minx by Maggie Adams
This was such a fast paced read. While many details for small things are there like decoration, clothing etc I felt I was missing the big details between Miranda and the main man. This was a good read about someone finding themselves again and jumping back into the dating game, but it was so fast paced I didn’t ever know how much time had passed from beginning to end.
I loved Miranda’s friends and how different they all were and how it didn’t matter, they were there for one another and I wouldn’t mind reading about them sometime!
Minx by Maggie Adams was so stinking fun to read! I have never had the pleasure of reading anything by Maggie Adams prior to this but now I must say I am dying to get my hands on some more of her work and anything else she may create for readers in the future. Minx is a fast read, one that you could devour on a dreary rainy day to brighten things up, or even perfect for a poolside read. As soon as I started reading about Miranda Blake I was hooked and found myself finished in one sitting. I would love to see more Miranda in the future because I feel like there is still so much story potential left in her character. *wink wink*
Miranda Blake is the exact type of person that I am so it was super easy for me to relate to her on multiple levels. She is such a good-doer for anyone and everyone that she often gets left in the dust with little to nothing left for herself. Now that is all about to change as she grabs life by the horns and starts to find her voice. I loved watching her grow to find that inner sassy voice that she always had but wasn’t sure how to use. Definitely a five star read that I will be finding time to re-read once again soon.
Minx is a romantic comedy by Maggie Adams. I am grateful that Ms. Adams created Miranda. She is not the picture of a fairytale but more of a hot mess. Her story is one of comedy throughout her life. It is refreshing knowing not every author writer describes the “barbie” figure for the character. I have to admit I spent a long time reading this story because i was laughing so hard I had to stop. Will Miranda find some love? Will Prince, her German Shepard, stay her Prince Charming? I hope you have as much enjoyment of this story as I did.
This is one of those stories that is right up my alley.

This book is on the shorter side and because of it, moves at a very quick pace. There were a couple of characters who I constantly rolled my eyes at (I’m looking at you Matt & Ritter) and I wanted to write them right out of the story and some of the situations were odd, but I found the story an enjoyable one and would recommend it.
I will be checking out other books by this author in the future.
