Publisher's Summary

She thought he hated her. He thought she was too good for him. Fate proved them both wrong.
Lexi Adams suffers from extreme job dissatisfaction. The only things she finds challenging are the sexy IT guy and the online erotic romance novels she discovers, starring her spitting image. Unfortunately the man is insufferable and the novel accessible only at work.
Aware that Lexi's workload doesn't meet her potential, Ric Ackart, head of the IT department, decides to find out what she does in front of her computer screen all day. His surprise at what he finds is overshadowed by the fact that the novel's leading man shares his face and the name he used years ago.
Despite their stubbornness, the two can't deny the explosive chemistry between them. Ric is forced to come to terms with his feelings, but Lexi isn't willing to give him more than her body.
An unlikely ally and a touch of magic may be just what Lexi needs to accept the gift fate has thrown her way - true love.

sexy office romance with a tiny dash of paranormal

Magic at Work was a very cute enemy to lovers, sexy office romance with a tiny dash of paranormal. The magical element worked well even for somebody who is not really into this genre.

Lexi has trust issues and feels insecure. After a failed relationship, she is working in her stepdad's company. She has settled for mundane work. She has settled for sex rather than love. One day, she finds an erotic paranormal novel on her office computer and becomes totally captivated by it. Ric is the company's IT guy who used to be a bit of a bad boy but is now reformed thanks to Lexi's stepdad. He also appears to be Rex, the hot male protagonist in Lexi's online novel.

Sotia Lazu once again showed that she can write erotic scenes with just the right steaminess factor. I like that she keeps it classy rather than swerving towards smutty. She created a great cast of protagonists and side characters. Lexi's Mum and her stepdad were wonderful. The snarky banter between Lexi and Ric/Rex was hilarious.

Overall, I really enjoyed the narration by Hollie Jackson. She was great at delivering the humor and all the emotions involved. Her narration was lively and the voices distinct, so you always knew who was talking. The only thing that took me a while to get used to were the British accents used for Ric and for Lexi's stepdad. They would have been more believable if they had been a bit more dimmed, not quite so much like Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. There were no issues with the quality of the production.

This was a really funny, light and romantic story, which was well written and held my attention throughout. Recommended for any fans of contemporary sexy romances who don't mind a hint of magic.

Modern Day Fairy Tale!

Wow…What a FANTASTIC story! Magic at Work has a very unique plot! It is like a modern day fairy tale; funny, sweet, steamy, and hopelessly romantic. The more I listened, the more I was absolutely captivated.

Some spoilers/teasers:
Lexi has recently went to work for her stepfather; however, her new position is not challenging enough for her skill set, and she feels she is being under utilized. In addition, the head IT guy acts like he has a chip on his shoulders, and she eventually finds herself with free time on her hands. Putting her extra free time to good use, she surfs the internet, and stumbles across a steamy and captivating paranormal romance story.

After a few chapters, she finds herself enthralled with the story, and by the end of her shift, she copies the book to take home to continue reading it. However, later that night when she tries to access the story, and receives an error message. In order for her to finish the story, she will have to read it at work.

Ric knows Lexi acts busy at her desk but is curious to see what she actually does all day, and is shocked to learn, she has been reading a PNR who's characters oddly appear to have a lot in common with Lexi and Ric. When he confronts her, they soon find themselves giving in to their hidden desires for each other, and role playing! These scenes are HOT!

Lexi and Ric go from hostile co-workers to steamy lovers, but Ric wants more; however, Lexi's past prevents her from opening up to Ric. As she reads this mysterious online novel, she learns about herself, her true feelings, and what she wants from their relationship.

This is a magical tale full of humor, steamy sex scenes, true love, and a HEA. I gave it an overall 4.5 stars!

I've listened Hollie Jackson narrate other stories, and as usual she delivers a great performance.

I received a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
