Matt Blackwood never set out to become his father.

As heir apparent to the family architectural firm, he works long hours at the office and travels continuously to oversee job sites. Matt knows there’s more to life.

Bravely striking out on his own makes sense for him professionally, so why then is he so skittish about a more permanent arrangement with his long-time boyfriend Leo Morris? Could walking down the aisle make that much of a difference?

Matt and Leo, whose teenage romance began in the “Hat Trick” trilogy, must fight for what they want. The choices they make could affect the rest of their lives.

My View:

After reading Hat Trick 3: Penalty Shot, I dove right into Make the Right Choice. While you don’t strictly have to read the Hat Trick books to enjoy and appreciate the story Adams is telling in this one, fans of the series will not want to miss the story of how Leo and Matt (both of whom we first met in Hat Trick) found their happily ever after.

Leo and Matt are another story of soul mates who found each other young. However unlike Simon and Alex, they have always had distance as a major factor in their relationship. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to have changed ten years after they met. It is actually starting to tear them apart.

Both Matt and Leo need to do some serious soul searching to figure out what is important in life. Where they want to be in ten years. This story is all about that journey. It is heartbreaking and beautiful. There are tense moments and moments of comfort. There are joyful moments and moments of strife. One thing is clear from the first page; both Leo and Matt want to find a way back together.

With his typical sincere style, Adams tackles a moment almost every couple faces at some point in their relationship. Is it time to fight? How to I keep him? How do I make it better? How do we find our way past this rough patch?

I am sad to be saying goodbye to the Hat Trick boys, but I know Simon, Alex, Matt, Leo, and the rest will all be there for me whenever I need them. That is the beauty of timeless stories such as this series.

Now that we have seen Leo and Matt finally find their happy, any chance for some HEAs for the Rainbow Highs boys?
