Hecate (Cate) is a fallen goddess pining over the loss of her soul to Hades. How does an immortal trapped in a human body cope with ennui and a persistent ex? She does what every human does, of course. She drinks too much and sees her therapist once a week. Pithy and sadly lacking in social skills, Cate is determined to make the most of her ordinary life, even if Hades has other plans for her.
Hades is determined to keep her soul until he's "gotten over" the injury Cate caused his beloved wife, Persephone. The ex, Ares, seems determined to be a part of Cate's life even if she wants nothing to do with him. She blames him for her predicament and knows he's the one thing she wants more than her soul.
Complicating matters is the war she's trying to avoid with her ex-best friend, Isis, now queen of the vampires, and the war that's always threatening to brew over between Ares and Bacchus, Cate's best friend. Bach and Cate are just friends, so why does Ares and Bach seem to be fighting over her? All Cate wants is to do her job, go home to her dog, and live out the next hundred years until Hades decides she deserves her soul back.

I received a review copy of "Gods behaving badly Book 1" By Mickey Ann in exchange for an honest review. I am a huge fan of mythology so opening this book I have to say my expectations were fairly high. The concept of this novel series is great, sadly I find the execution a bit lacking. This short novel is set in modern day where our lead character Hecate known as Cate to her friends is living life without her soul. Let it be known angering the god of death Hades isn't very wise. As if living without her soul wasn't a big enough problem for her Cate is an alcoholic, goes to therapy once a week, is fighting her urge to be with Ares the god she loved enough to lose her soul over, and has some major social skills issues. Cate doesn't enjoy living life as a human with little to no emotion this makes her temper that much worse if she really lets go. I'm giving the book 2.5 stars because I rather enjoyed the sarcasm and pure "I don't care about anything" attitude of Cate's character however I had a hard time feeling that the characters and the story really blend together. I would have liked to see more connection to the story and depth to the plot line. Overall it was a nice quick read with a few funny scenes. I do however hope to see more depth in the next 2 books as the series moves forward.
