YA Bachelor: Patch from Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick

Today's bachelor is Patch from the Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzgerald. The awesome Del from DeLibrarie has kindly offered to host Patch and tell you why you should fall in love with this fallen angel!

(Big spoilers for Hush, Hush and Crescendo)
Patch Cipriano.  He's basically an ass. We are first introduced to him in Hush,hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, in which  he and Nora are assigned to sit next to each other in biology class. They are also assigned to find out everything they can about each other which results in Patch being a condescending asshole who brings up Nora's faults, past tragedies, and weaknesses and Nora left feeling confused and emotionally violated. Yea... not the greatest first impression. Throughout Hush, Hush, Nora is constantly thrown into these dangerous situations that almost kill her... and they seem to only really happen when Patch is around, but she can't stay away because she is determined to find out who he really is. It is then revealed that Patch is a fallen angel and in order to become human, which he wants desperately, he must kill Nora... which was exactly his intention. BUT... that becomes a little more complicated when he accidentally falls in love with her. Things happen... and ultimately Nora sacrifices herself and instead of Patch accepting said sacrifice... he saves her and becomes her guardian angel... because he's awesome.

Patch is described as a mint scented “dark-Levi’s dark-Henley dark boots kind of guy”. He has dark hair, dark eyes and a little over 6 foot. 
<------ Now PERSONALLY, I picture Jackson Rathbone with a little shorter hair. He has that sarcastic snide thing about him, and I think his face is PERFECT for Patch. I can just easily picture him playing a bad ass angel with a little bit of a soft side. 

BUT, if there were to be a movie made of the Hush, hush series, I would not be disappointed with Drew Doyon, who is the cover model on the books. He obviously has the right look... that's why he was the cover model. :)

Why? Why do we love this bad boy?
1.       He is just that… a bad boy. BUT he’s a fallen angel… So he’s the ultimate bad boy, AND he’s the ultimate bad boy who is in love with a good girl.
2.       But he turns good. He loves Nora SO much, that instead of accepting her sacrifice and becoming human, he saves her… sacrificing everything that he has wanted and becomes a guardian angel… the ultimate good guy.
3.       He is SO HOT, and I don’t just mean hot like physically… but he is sarcastic and funny hot. Some of the things that he says to Nora are so sexy, that I melt… and I’m just reading them.

What you should vote Patch for:

Best Bad Boy: Patch is the ULTIMATE bad boy. He’s a fallen angel. But what every girl who falls for a bad boys hopes for, is that he’ll love her and only her. Patch is crazy about Nora… so much so that he sacrifices becoming human… and once he does become a guardian angel… he still has the sexy, sarcastic one-liners that make Patch’s bad boy-ness so hot.

Sexiest: Come on… How could he not be?! He’s tall, dark, and handsome. He’s tough and sexy, but also sarcastic and witty. He saves Nora’s life… multiple times… in the series… and in Crescendo he even chooses her over his best/longest friend. He loves Nora unconditionally… and what is sexier than that?

Change My Mind: If you didn’t love Patch before… I forgive you… but you definitely should now… there are no more excuses, *wink

Best One-Liner- Okay… Patch is the KING of these… let me show you:

“Say ‘Provoking’ again. Your mouth looks provocative when you do.” (Hush, Hush)

"All this time I've hated myself for it. I thought I'd given it up for nothing. But if I hadn't fallen, I wouldn't have met you."  (Hush, Hush)

"You possess other people's...bodies." 
He accepted that statement with a nod. 
"Do you want to possess my body?" 
"I want to do a lot of things to your body, but that's not one of them."  (Hush, Hush)

"I get my very own guardian angel? What, exactly, is your job description?" 
"Guard your body." His smile tipped higher. "I take my job seriously, which means I'm going to need to get acquainted with the subject matter on a personal level." (Hush, Hush)

"You should go," I breathed. "You should definitely go." 
"Go here?" His mouth was on my shoulder. "Or here?" It moved up my neck."  (Hush, Hush)

Ok so that is a little more than One-line… but I think I got my point across… he’s hot… and his lines are WAY hot! 
And of course…

Overall Favorite: Patch is sarcastic, he can be kind of an ass (often), he keeps things from Nora… BUT… he’s what every girl wants… He is the bad boy who turns good for them. AND when he turns good he doesn’t turn into this clingy, sensitive thing… he keeps his witty, sarcastic comments. He’s a bad boy with a personality and a soft spot for Nora. He sacrifices pretty much everything to be with her/save her… more than once. Patch IS the ultimate YA guy.

  1. This------------->You possess other people's...bodies."
    He accepted that statement with a nod.
    "Do you want to possess my body?"
    "I want to do a lot of things to your body, but that's not one of them." (Hush, Hush)

    I loved Patch from the very first time he appeared in the book ( but not a fan of Jackson Rathbone) His one liners are Brill..I remember one I think in Cresendo? They are at Delphic and Nora asks what he would like to eat while ordering food and he says something to the effect of ..Nothing on the menu- Sighs-He gets me!!

  2. Patch literally melts words off the page with some of his one liners. He's this super sexy mysterious guy whose willing to sacrifice everything for love. Great post and thanks for some of those... um, "enlightening" one liners. On a completely different note, is it hot in here?

  3. hm, unfortunately I'm not from the US.. but I've got the books, in ebooks at least..

    I'm going to read the books as soon as the semester ends...

    Patch seems like my type of Byronic hero.. if he's a hero.. o_=

  4. Now PERSONALLY, I picture Jackson Rathbone with a little shorter hair. He has that sarcastic snide thing about him, and I think his face is PERFECT for Patch. I can just easily picture him playing a bad ass angel with a little bit of a soft side.

    I agree - =)
