Pure Tour - Guest Post (Battle of the Words between Aiden and Seth)

Welcome Jennifer L Armentrout to Short and Sweet Reviews!  On our stop for the Pure  blog tour, Jennifer will be sharing with us a "Battle of the Words" between Seth and Aiden!

Summary of Pure:
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.

Battle of the Words
Aiden vs. Seth
from Jennifer L Armentrout's Covenant Series

So poor Alex has two hot boys that are battling for her attention, well she can dream about one of them anyway.  You decide who she should choose.
First site
Aiden – “In front of me, he walked right through the flames, looking every bit like a daimon hunter should.  The fire did not singe his pants nor dirty his shirt.  Not a single dark hair was touched by the blaze.  Those cool, storm-cloud-colored eyes fixed on me.  It was him – Aiden St. Delphi.” Half-Blood
Seth – “The air sucked right out of the room the moment he stepped into the building.  He was tall—maybe as tall as Aiden, but I couldn’t be sure.  His blond hair was pulled back in a small ponytail, showing off the impossibly perfect features and golden complexion.  He wore all black, like the Sentinels did.  Under a different circumstance –one in which I didn’t actually realize what he was – I would’ve said he was smokin’ hot.” Half-Blood
Talking with Alex
Aiden – “Aiden glanced over his shoulder at me.  ‘How many diamons have you killed?’
‘Just two.’  I picked up my pace so I could keep up with his long legged one.
‘Just two?’ Awe filled his voice.  ‘Do you realize how amazing it is for a half-blood not fully trained to kill one daimon, let alone two?’” Half-Blood
Seth – “’Do something to your arm?’‘Huh?’  He leaned over, brushing his fingers over the elbow I’d just cracked.  ‘This.’  There was a small, barely visible red spot.  ‘How in the world can you see that?  I hit it on the door a few minutes ago.’  A grin slipped over Seth’s lips.  ‘You’re so unbelievably graceful.  Should I kiss it and make it better for you?’” Pure

Alex’s reaction to them
Aiden—“I threw my head back, ready to plant my foot somewhere when our eyes met.  I did stop then, with his face inches from mine.  The atmosphere changed as one of the wild emotions swirling through me managed to break free and rear its head.
“His lean torso and legs pressed against mine in a way that made me think of other things—stuff that wasn’t fighting or killing, but did involve sweating, lots of sweating.  Breathing became difficult as we continued to stare at one another.”  Half-Blood
Seth—“He reached out, his hand closing around my forearm.  Flesh against flesh.  The world exploded.  A surge of electricity shot through my body.  It was like the feeling I got whenever he was near, but a hundred times stronger.  I couldn’t speak, and the longer Seth held on, the more powerful the rush grew.”  Half-Blood

So you decide.  If you were Alex, which guy would you choose?
