Enchanted, Inc. by Shanna Swendson

Katie Chandler hates her job. She has worked for a year in New York as the assistant of a monster. Not literally but it feels that way. A transplant from Texas, Katie isn't always taking seriously in the business world with her accent and down home charm. And she doesn't understand New York. She loves living there but she feels out of place. She sees the gargoyle statue on top of a church one day and the next it is gone. She sees people walking around wearing wings. The subway makes unscheduled stops. But for some reason no one else notices.

One day Katie is offered a new job by a company called MSI, Inc. She is leery at first since she has never heard of the company before but her job has gotten so bad that she decides to go for it. On her first day of work, Katie finds out what the company is. It is Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc. It turns out Katie has a rare ability-magic does not work on her. Her job is to see what is being cloaked by magic-contracts, intruders, or bad dates. She gets promoted right away and because the assistant to the boss-Merlin. That's right...Merlin.

As strange as Katie's job is, she finds that she loves it. It doesn't hurt that there is a super cute wizard named Owen who works there too. Just when everything is going great an evil wizard has to be evil. The next thing Katie knows she is part of a wizard duel!

This is a fantastic start to a wonderful series. So far there are 4 books in the Katie Chandler series and I cannot wait for the fifth one!
