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.

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.

Love the cockney accent

This was a cute story, a nice easy listen. Although there was romantic drama, it was nothing too intense (except the sex); basically just a sweet love story with a couple of twists. However, I though that the narration by Hollie Jackson was great and made the story so much more. Her characterization of Rex was great. I'm curious to see if there will be more in this series as I was intrigued by Angie and Sarah and would like to find out more of their witchy ways --- Is there a pantheon of lesser gods who aid the witches in other endeavors? There seemed to be a lot of back story to Lexi's step-father and her mother that was intriguing as well.

Worth the listen and, more to the point, worth your time. I was given a free copy of this narration for an honest review.

Quite different

This book was gifted to me by the author in exchange for an honest review via audiobook blast

My first by this author

laughed and loved the secret read whilst working very common practise ....lol

The concept of this story is a wonderful weave of sex, confusion, I love the play on a novel within a novel to bring the two main characters into a sexual intimacy early on ie someone is being naughty after hours and she hasn't the sense to check for any co-workers. Luckily, he's a gentleman. Sort of.

Nicely,written and intriguing, the author's ability to capture emotion and conflict flowing easily through subtle characterisation.

Hollie did a nice job narrating the story , and has made me want to check out her other work

thanks

Delighfully funny and sexy!

With quirky humour and cringe worthy moments, this story is filled with interesting, baggage carrying characters and sexy moments. Sotia Lazu has successfully knitted together the everyday working natures of the characters with fantasy versions of themselves, adding depth to the plot. I enjoyed listening to the book. Pure fantasy laced escapism.
