Character Spotlight: Patch Cipriano

Patch Cipriano is probably my favorite male book character.  Patch is the bad boy that Edward Cullen wishes he could be.  Patch is a fallen angel, and from the moment he turns up on page, the reader is intrigued by him.  You want to love him because he is handsome, witty, funny, dark, brooding, sarcastic, and charming all at the same time. However, there is also something very mysterious and dangerous about him. The reader never really knows if he can be trusted or not. The reader will want to trust Patch, but there is always some nagging suspicion about what he is doing. Unlike other heroes, Patch doesn’t try to be an angel (please excuse the pun, I couldn’t help myself) he is who he is and accepts that. He recognizes his flaws and doesn’t really try to hide them. Patch is very happy being his bad boy self, until Nora comes along and changes everything. Nora makes him want to be a better person. After meeting Nora, Patch remembers what it is like to be “good.” He changes for the better, while still keeping his dangerous and for lack of a better word bad side.  
In my opinion, Patch is one of the funniest guys in literature. His banter with Nora is hysterical. However, I speak sarcasm as a second language and Patch clearly does too. So naturally, I am going to love him. Read below and you will see what I mean.
Nora: “What does ‘hmm’ have to do with anything? Could you ever use more than five words? All this grunting and minced words makes you come across - primal.
Patch: “Primal.”
Nora: “You’re impossible”
Patch: “Me Jev, you Nora.”
Nora: “Stop it.”
Patch: “Since we’re keeping it primal, you smell good.”
Nora: “It’s called a shower… Soap, shampoo, hot water.”
Patch: “Naked. I know the drill.”
Overall, Patch is simply great and I thank Becca Fitzpatrick for creating his lovely character. I always enjoy revisiting him and Nora in the Hush Hush Saga and I am eagerly awaiting Finale which releases October 23, 2012.
Some of My Favorite Patch Quotes:
“And I need you, Angel. More than I think you’ll ever know.” -Silence
“You’re mine, Angel, and don’t you forget it. Your fights are my fights. What if something had happened today? It was bad enough when I thought your ghost was haunting me; I don’t think I could handle the real thing.” -Silence
“I’m not going to kill you, Nora. I don’t kill people who are important to me. And you  top the list.” - Hush Hush
“You’re getting cocky. I like that, Angel.” - Hush Hush
“Angel… I don’t think you understand the lengths I would go to if it means keeping you here with me.” - Silence
“There’s only one thing I know for certain anymore… That I would do anything for you, even if it means going against my instincts or my very nature. I would lay down my soul, for you. If that isn’t love, it’s the best I have.” - Silence
“First, Hank can’t see us together. Second, I don’t like the idea of dragging you into something that could get messy fast. If you need one more reason, I love you. This is uncharted territory for me, but I need to know that at the end of the night, I have you to come home to.” - Silence
