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.

My Thoughts:

Oh the bittersweet romances are the ones that kill us the most. Alex is in love with Aiden, and in Half Blood almost gave herself completely to him, but then because he’s a pure and she’s a half and them being together would force her forever into servitude, they don’t.

And then there’s Seth, who is clearly the better choice (imho) but Alex doesn’t feel anything for him. She can feel his emotions, he can feel hers, and there’s something between them but they never let it go too far because well, anytime it does get far, Seth feels that Alex isn’t thinking about him, but about Aiden.

This book also thickens the plot with Alex standing trial for things that happened in Half Blood regarding her mother. It’s hard to watch the insinuations they make, but I’m glad Alex keeps her sharp tongue and her head about herself during it.

Add some sexy scenes and a few all out brawls between Aiden and Seth and you have yourself a fantastic little book here.

If you haven’t picked up on it yet, you should, because it’s one of the good ones.

    I REALLY am not usually a fan of love triangles, but this one, which in PURE I would say finally starts to take on the triangle shape gets under my skin. It's so darned well-written. I'm definitely an Aiden/Alex girl – I just can't help but want and need them to be together – but I can also see how Seth could be very good for her. And mostly, I love that it isn't ALL about the

    This is yet another book that I own and haven&#39;t read yet. I so need to! I loved Half-Blood, it was gorgeous and steamy and I loved the steamy make-out scene :) I&#39;m going to have to seriously make some time for this one, you just reminded me how much I adore Armentrout&#39;s stories!
