The winner of Match #13 is Daemon!
Hey there tourney voters! I'm Stacey from the Fantasy Book Addict. If you know me from twitter, then you already know I'm obsessed with most of these YA crushes. I have a VERY LONG list of fictional boyfriends and Daemon Black is right at the top which is why it makes total sense I should represent him! Now, let's get to the awesome that is Daemon. Not only am I going to tell you why you should vote for Daemon, I'm going to tell you why he should WIN the whole damn thing! Fact #1: Daemon Black is over-the-top SMEXY! My girl Katy describes him best in four sentences: "Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys." (Obsidian) Do you still need more? How about this description from Obsidian:
Fact #2: His cocky persona only makes us love him more! Who doesn't like confidence? Well, Daemon oozes it. He knows he's hot, and worse, he knows Katy does too. But, he's always really playful about it which only makes us love him more. "You're such an ass. Has.anyone ever told you that?" He flashed a genuinely amused smile. "Oh, Kitten, every single day of my blessed life." (Obsidian) "You probably even dream about me." His gaze lowered to my mouth. I felt my lips part. "I bet you even write my name in your notebooks, over and over again, with a little heart drawn around it." (Obsidian) "He rolled his eyes. "You just like me for my body. Admit it." "Well, yeah..." His lashes lifted and his eyes glittered like jewels. "I feel like man-candy" (Opal)
Fact #3: He will do anything to protect his family and Katy! Daemon was totally rude when he first met Katy. Actually, he spends a good portion of Obsidian being a jerk to pretty much everyone. But, we find out later that he was trying to protect her. He knows he can put Katy in danger and he puts aside his own feelings to try to keep her safe. That, to me, is the definition of swoon-worthy. "This was wrong. Think of Dawson. Look at what happened to him. Did I want to take the same risk? Leave Dee all alone? But even now I could feel her skin, taste it--sweet and sugary like candy. Hear that wonderful sound she made over and over again, haunting every mile I put between us." (Obsidian - The Morning After) In Daemon's mind, it's his job to protect his family. Nothing else matters to him. Throughout the series, he sacrifices himself, and when things go wrong, he blames himself. The ultimate hero.
Fact #4: He's more vulnerable than he lets on! More than anything, I think Daemon just wants to live a normal life. It seems like Katy is the one person who can see who he really is. "A smile pulled at his lips as he looked away. "I had more fun that day than I can remember. I know it sounds stupid, but--'' "It's not stupid." My heart lurched. At once, I sort of understood him better. Underneath it all, I think he wanted to be normal." "And there was the real Daemon. Still a total badass, but there was pain in him, a vulnerability in the lines of his face that I doubted anyone ever got to see." (Obsidian)
Patch from Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Hello all you beautiful people, my name is Danielle from Consuming Worlds and I am here today to talk to you all about this wonderful Angel named Patch Cipriano. If you know the Patch in which I am referring than you already know all the reasons Patch is so yummy and deserves your vote!
If you haven't heard of Patch well then sit back and read along and allow me to tell you--and show you all the reasons that Patch should have your vote for this YA Crush Tourney!!! Shall we begin???
For those who don't know, Patch is from the Hush, Hush Series by Becca Fitzpatrick and let's just say that he brings the saying tall, dark and handsome to a whole new level!! Just look at him and tell me you don't agree.
So, what is it about Patch that makes him so desirable? Well besides his looks......(because we all know he should win just on that factor alone!!!)
Patch really is a man who has it all. He has attitude, he is fluent in snark and sarcasm, he has an air of danger about him, he is mysterious, he's a romantic, he's dedicated, he's a tease, he's lethal, he makes jeans and t-shirts look good, he can fly, he drives a motorcycle, he looks like a God--his body is chiseled in all the right places, and probably my most favorite.......he's an Angel!!! Need I say more???? No I don't have to say more, but I will. Actually I will allow Patch's words to sway you over to his side. He will give you all the reasons you need to vote for him! But before I allow him to sway you with his words, I am going to just show you another reason he should be your choice.....Just look at him.....(you might want to wipe that drool. *points to the corner of your mouth* Yea, right there. Oh, yup you got it!)
"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)
"You dress to impress." I said approvingly.
"No, Angel." He leaned in, his teeth softly grazing my ear. "I undress to impress." (Finale)
"Nice costume," he said.
"Ditto. I can tell you put a lot of thought into yours."
Amusement curled his mouth. "If you don't like it, I can take it off." (Finale)
"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)
Patch has the ability to turn anything into a sexual innuendo, from sarcasm to snark, Patch has it, and knows how to use it!
"All I can think about is bed."
"We're sharing the same thought."
"You're thinking about bed too?" But Patch had told me that he rarely slept.
"I'm thinking about you in my bed." (Finale)
He's dark and mysterious with an air of danger.....
"If I wanted you dead five minutes ago, you'd have died five minutes ago." (Hush, Hush)
"I personally believe Patch scared the pants off normal, and it took off running for the far side of the world." (Finale)
"I move in mysterious ways."
"God moves in mysterious ways. You move like lightening-here one moment, gone the next." (Silence)
But the best thing about Patch, is that underneath his rough and hard exterior, underneath all that snark, sarcasm and teasing, lies the heart of an incredible man who would do anything for the girl he loves. Just to show a little of his romantic side here he is to make you swoon.
"I know I can't feel your touch, but I feel your love Nora. Inside me. It means everything to me. I wish I could feel you the same way you feel me, but I have your love. Nothing will ever outweigh that. Some people go their entire lives never feeling the emotions you've given me. There is no regret in that." (Finale)
"I believe in destiny Angel. I believe every choice I've made has brought me closer to you. I looked for you for a very long time. I may have fallen from heaven, but I fell for you."
"I want to wake up with you every morning and fall asleep beside you each night." Patch told me gravely. "I want to take care of you, cherish you, ad love you in a way no other man ever could. I want to spoil you--every kiss, every touch, every thought, they all belong to you. I'll make you happy. Every day, I'll make you happy."
"I have no intention of letting you go easily, something to keep in mind. I don't care if it's another man, your mother, or the powers of hell trying to pry us apart, I'm not easing up and I'm not saying good-bye." (Finale)
And one of my personal favorites....
"I would lay down everything I possess, even my soul, for you. If that isn't love, it's the best I have." (Silence)
Of course there are many, many other reasons to love our Patch Cipriano, and trust me I could go on and on, but I won't. Instead I want to say this.......Patch is one fiercely loyal and de
dicated Angel. He would give up his life, his very soul for the girl he loves. Let's show him some support and help him win this YA Crush Tourney. I know Patch is an Angel, and Patch would never ask this, so don't tell him I am asking you this, Will you be Patch's Guardian Angel and vote for him?? Even Angel's need someone to watch their back!
