K is for Kian Murphy

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and visited my J is for Josh Browne post on Friday.

Today, for letter K, I have a character profile for All It Takes leading man, Kian Murphy!

Enjoy ... 

Ladies, hold onto your panties and wipe the drool from your chins ... Kian Murphy is in the house!

Our sexy Irish man is the male lead in All It Takes, and a certified heart-breaker. He's good-looking and knows it, and has the confidence to back it up. A total ladies man, Kian always gets what he wants, both in and out of the MMA cage!

But he's more than just a pretty face. Once you earn Kian's loyalty, he's your friend for life, and would do anything for you. He's fiercely protective of those he cares about. 

Outside of MMA, his two main passions are bikes, and cooking! Yes, this boy can cook, and he has expert skills learned from his mum. Though he doesn't get to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, when he does, he loves inventing his own dishes. 

Kian is also a tattoo junkie, and has both his sleeves tattooed, along with a design across his shoulder blades. There's many different designs within his sleeves, including the date of his first championship win, inspiring quotes, and other reminders of important times in his life.

He's not a complete tough guy though, and Kian is secretly scared of the sight of blood. He can deal with it in a fighting capacity, but seeing it anywhere else makes him woozy!

Bonus tidbit: Kian's middle name is Graham, after his paternal grandfather. 

Oddly, though writing Kian comes easily, for once when writing a story, I've had the hardest time picking an actor who'd play him in my dream cast for All It Takes - hence the stock image.

So, dear readers, I'm throwing it over to you, with this poll. I've added some options, but please feel free to include your own if any spring to mind! (click on the pictures to make them bigger!)

    I voted for Colin because I have a little thing for him. ;)

  3. I voted. Actually I let my wife pick, as I have no idea what a sexy Irish guy would look like.
