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 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.

Funny, hot, fast-paced read!!!

Only there were people at the office, and he’d earn himself a slap or worse if he tried to bend her over his desk and fuck her. by Ric

Lexi was bored with her job. It didn’t let her explore her capabilities, so she ended up having too much time on her hands. Until she found this most erotic romance novel online and couldn’t stop reading it, when she should be working. Better than reading her e-book, only doing it herself. But the problem was, she only wanted sex, not the relationship that usually came attached to it. Is love worth all the pain that comes with it?

Ric was surviving. For the last couple of years he has straitened his act, become the responsible one, but something was missing. He didn’t know what, until he saw it; and decided after an inner debate, that he must have it. The problem was, the “it” in question hated his guts. How could he turn things in his favor to start living again?

Magic At Work has a very creative plot that kept me guessing until the end. The story is well written, with a few plot twists and a lot of good laughs.

The characters were good ones, but I had some trouble relating with Lexi. Ok, sometimes. Because, I could totally relate when she started reading her book and forgot about the world around her. The squirming on the seat while reading a really hot scene while you are in a totally inappropriate place surrounded by people. Yeah, totally relatable! 🙂 But then, Lexi, described herself like that:

I’m stubborn, and I’m bitchy, and I’m whiny and weird, and I don’t believe in love.

After that speech, I totally got her. She knew she was difficult and she was trying to work on it.

I don’t know what is not to like about Ric. He is hot, smart, loving, perceptive, patient and has a British accent. Just to add to the mix, he has a big junk and knows how to work with his magical tool. As I said: HOT!!!

Ms. Lazu is an expert of writing steamy scenes. They are all so memorable and well-developed, at the same time they are not accessories inside the story. They are relevant and great additions to the plot. Oh, I could talk about the scene on the desk, on the table, on the closet… yeah, MEMORABLE!

Oh, I can’t forget to mention again how much fun this book was. I laughed out loud so many times.

You didn’t think to wear a condom? That should be on autopilot. You wanna stick your dick in someone? You wrap it up first. by Lexi

P.S: I always rate my covers. I believe my reading journeys start when I choose the book. The first thing I do, is trying to see what story the cover tells me. I would buy Magic at Work without even reading the blurb. Yeah, it’s risky, but I do it all the time. Looking at it I would guess this was going to be a hot ride with some paranormal elements and a mouth-watering hero.

You MAY buy this book because you enjoy the author; you SHOULD get this book if you are looking for a panty-wetter hero; but you MUST read this book if you are willing to laugh out loud while suffering hot flashes!!!

About Sotia Lazu

First and foremost, I hate mornings. Also, I write.

Making do with Greek reality while writing (and mostly thinking) in English. Sappy movies make me bawl like a baby, and I wish I could take in all the stray dogs in the world. I share my life and living quarters with my husband, our son, and two rescue dogs—one of which may be part-pony.

I love writing romances with a twist and urban fantasy novels, always with vivid erotic elements. My favorite characters are not conventional hero-material at first glance, and I enjoy making them fight for their happiness.
