Paranormal Romance Review ~ LOOTED (God Behaving Badly, #1) by Sheri Velarde

Looted (Gods Behaving Badly, #1)
by: Sheri Velarde
Series: Gods Behaving Badly
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: March 8, 2016
Source: Publisher

Sophia longs for the days when she was worshipped as a goddess and celebrated for her glory. Now she hides in plain sight and does what she must to keep the lifestyle she is accustomed. She has never been close to discovery until one New York City Detective, Bruce Stoker, enters the picture. Now all that she is and has done could come out into the open and destroy everything. She should disappear, but there is something different about this man that draws her to him.

Detective Bruce Stoker has never had an unsolved case, but there is something different about these art heists. Money is taken, but art is given to museums. Strange. If he can find the beautiful woman who seems to be the common link, then everything should be simple. That is what he thought at least until he met the gorgeous suspect in question.

Looted is a really quick read.  But the book did manage to pique my interest and get me interested in what was going to happen with the characters.

Sophia is a goddess living amongst mortal humans in the world.  She’s like a modern day Robin Hood, taking from the rich and giving to the poor.  Only Sophia takes things from wealthy people who have possessions of questionable origin.  She’s good at what she does and doesn’t seem to leave a trace.  Bruce Stoker is an NYPD detective.  He has a perfect record when it comes to solving cases.  He also has a sixth sense which enables him to tell when someone isn’t being forthcoming with him.

Following his instincts, Bruce runs into Sophia.  The attraction is instant, but questions arise.  Questions that aren’t case related and ones that only Sophia can answer.

It would have been nice to know that Looted was part of a serial/series before I read it. That way, I would have known that the story really wouldn’t have been completed in one sitting.  I’m a little disappointed that I have to wait a little over a month for the next installment.  I SERIOUSLY want to know what’s going to happen between Sophia, Bruce and the other Gods walking amongst us.
