In honor of my friend, Karen Erickson’s new release, Torch, I thought it would be fun to talk about one of my favorite firemen. Played by the incredibly sexy Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Patrick Sullivan is an alpha male who is funny, charming and oh, so hot! Haven’t seen The Accidental Husband? Well, let me tell you a little bit about the movie.
Patrick is engaged to a girl who leaves him after getting advice from Dr. Emma Lloyd. Bent on revenge, he has his friend’s son create a fake marriage license, so when she goes to get one for her and her fiancé, the system says she is already married. (By the way, Colin Firth as a stress eating publisher is hysterical!) When she tracks down Sullivan to fix it, the more time they spend together, the more he finds himself not wanting to let her go.
So, the deception might sound bad, but Patrick more than makes up for it by being such a great guy…and here’s the swoon-worthy reasons why!
1) He carries her home when she drinks too much and takes care of her. *
2) His smile is enough to make any woman’s knees turn to mush!
3) Even when he is being an ornery ass, he is still so charming that you laugh.
4) Family is so important to him, and doesn’t have to be family related by blood.
5) Holy crap, that kiss in the elevator was so hot! “Wanna see unsuitable?” Bam, kiss, swoon!
Although The Accidental Husband isn’t available on any streaming services, I highly suggest you rent it from Amazon or Netflix and check it out. If only to fall in love with J.D.M. before he fully becomes Negan on The Walking Dead this fall! #Whodidhekill #DyingtoKnow
