My original Magic at Work audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

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.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692513469, Paperback)

Lexi Adams suffers from extreme job dissatisfaction. The only things she finds challenging are the sexy IT guy and the on-line erotic romance novel she discovers, starring her spitting image. Unfortunately, the man is insufferable, and the novel only accessible at work.

Aware 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.

She thought he hated her. He thought she was too good for him. Fate proved them both wrong.
