Battle of the Sexes: Boys (#2)-Jace vs Patch

Battle of the sexes is a new weekly meme created by us at Book Passion for Life. Every Friday we'll post a poll with 2 characters from 2 different books. We will alternate each week between boys and girls. We'll be running the polls for 12 weeks, at which point YOU thats right YOU bloggers will vote for your favourite character (boy or girl) depending on which week it is. At the end of the 12 weeks, we will place all previous winners into one poll where you will all vote for your ULTIMATE CHARACTER. That character will be crowned King or Queen in the Battle of the sexes final. 

Bloggers that wish to take part in this meme are welcome to do so. When you post the meme please link back to us. You are welcome to alternate each week, so if you would prefer to do girls first then you are welcome to. When posting this meme please include the following info on your characters:
  • Their stats like full name, date of birth, eye colour, hair colour, books they've featured in etc...
  • Three quote's for each character
  • The book cover from where these characters originate OR a photo that best reflects the character
Other than that, there isn't anything else to add to the meme. There are no rules, so pretty much anything goes.

Jace Quotes:
"There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then." 

"And now I’m looking at you,” he said, “and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before – bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it – but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me." 

"Just because you call an electric eel a rubber duck doesn't make it a rubber duck, does it? And God help the poor bastard who decides they want to take a bath with the duckie. " 

"Do you remember back at the hotel when you promised that if we lived, you’d get dressed up in a nurse’s outfit and give me a sponge bath?" asked Jace.
"It was Simon who promised you the sponge bath."
"As soon as I’m back on my feet, handsome," said Simon.
"I knew we should have left you a rat." 

Patch Quotes:
"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." 

"If you can't feel, why did you kiss me?"
Patch traced a finger along my collarbone, then headed south stopping at my heart. I felt it pounding through my skin. "Because I feel it here, in my heart," he said quietly." 

"Call me Patch. I mean it. Call me." 

"Being with you never felt wrong. It's the one thing I did right. You're the one thing I did right." 

Okay everyone! There's all the details on our men this week. Here's the voting time to cast your votes! Winner will be announced once the 5 days of voting is up! Have fun :)

Is Jace really about 5"1?? He can't be. That's shorter than my mother!

Gabbie-According to Wikipedia that's how tall he is lol. He may be taller (I think he is), but I went with what I found.
