Wow… totally Kelly Oram weekend… after The Avery Shaw Experiment and V is for Virgin series, yesterday I read Serial Hottie twice in a row… yeah… twice because my L word is totally for Seth Bishop and read about him is never be enough…

Yup, Seth Bishop, a hottie who just moved in to the house across Ellie Westley’s house. Seth lived with his Aunt who is a best-selling crime novelist, they moved in was simply for research for Seth’s Aunt new novel, she needed an experience to live in suburb area. However, almost at the same time they moved in, a serial killer was started which well known as Saturday Night Slasher, all of the victims are redhead which means totally fit with Ellie’s features and they died because of some stabs with knife. The speculation started in Ellie’s head which later also supported by her sister Angela, that Seth was actually the Serial Hottie Killer because of some similarities, like Seth’s obsession toward Ellie because she is a redhead, his advance ability with knife, his disappearance every Saturday night and his favorite game is Assassin’s Creed, furthermore Ellie and Angela found pictures of some redhead girls (some of them were the Saturday Night Slahser victims and one was later to be victim) in Seth’s bedroom. So the fact that Seth’s characteristic that easily got emotionally angry and threaten to kill everyone who tried to steal Ellie from him was not helping either.

So, did Seth Bishop the Serial Hottie Killer?

Of course not. Well, it was true that he obsessed with redhead but not just any redhead but only a redhead named Ellie Westley. His advance ability playing with knives was also true because of his childhood trauma, he saw his mother died, stabbed with knife, so to overcome his trauma, instead of avoided the knife; he used it to deal with his nervous habit. And about his disappearance every Saturday night was simply because he needed a distraction or he would break Ellie’s window just to be with her. His favorite games was Assassin’s Creed because since nine years old, he has been living with his aunt who lived, breathed and slept murder mysteries, so as her research assistant Seth also got interested with anything related to perfect murder. And the reason why he has the pictures of the redhead girl in his room was because he assisted his friend from FBI to solve the case. So, left the last doubt, why he moved in to Detroit at the same time with the Serial Killer? Easy, the answer was coincident. However, Seth had reason why he decided to moved in across the street of the Westley’s because when the realtor brought him and his aunt for the first time to see the house, he saw a redhead did her homework on the roof and at the same time Seth seemed could not think anything else but plotting a series of plans so he could approach that redhead, made her his and forced his aunt to live in the city until that girl ready to moved to California with him.

It’s romantic, isn’t it?

Okay, to be frankly, having an overprotective boyfriend like Seth is kind of creepy but also kind of hot. I mean, whenever Seth wanted Ellie to be in his side and every time their togetherness was interrupted, he would get emotionally angry and even threaten to kill whoever they are. Gosh, I even could not decide whether it is creepy or hot?
