Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout-Meet our SETH!

Book summary for Pure

There is need. And then there is Fate. 

Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her. When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon--and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude--or killing her. When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone

For JLA – Pure has been called Seth’s book.  Did fans reaction to Seth surprise you?  I wasn’t really surprised by the reaction to Pure because I knew that the book focused more on Seth than Aiden.

For Alex -  Knowing what you know about Leon, do you think there was more to him being the one to find you in labyrinth?  Oh, I’m sure there was more to it.

For Aiden -  By far, the zoo was the best scene in Pure.  What did you enjoy most about being at the zoo with Alex?  I loved knowing that I was doing something for her that made her happy. 

For Seth – That whole sleeping issue that you and Alex have in Pure, did you realize what was up or were you just going with it?  I would’ve just gone with it.  But, truth?  I knew what was up.

In Pure, we really get to know Alex's "other half" Seth. We get to see his good side, his sexy as hell bad boy side, and his secretive side. There are just too many sides to count for this love-him, hate-him, want to fix him character. So Jennifer and I decided we would have a little fun casting the lust-worthy, and slightly misunderstood Seth. Love, hate, whatever you feel about him, Seth knows how to stir emotions in people. He's lean, muscular, and sexy as hell. The lovely Regina from Mel, Erin, and Regina Read-A-Lot is a huge Seth fan, so I asked for her help in finding the right person for this challenging role. I absolutely loved her pick. So here is our choice for the delicious Seth:

And another shot:

So what do you think? Does this hot, hunk of a bad boy make you think of Seth? Let us know and share your casting choices in the comments below!

For the record, as much as Jennifer and I love watching Seth act out and toss around his Apollyon weight, we are totally #TeamAiden all the way!
