  • Haken hit all the right notes with this one. Matt and Alex are perfect for each other and absolutely worth falling in love with. The two of them face real obstacles but their commitment to each other allows them to overcome each one. I definitely recommend this one! ~ QUEERcentric Books
  • I was so into this book, I read it in one night!! I hadn't realized how late/early it was, until my husband came into the den looking for me!! I couldn't put my kindle down!!! I laughed and cried!! One can only hope that they can find love like theirs!!! Great job Nicola Haken and please don't stop doing your thing Boo!!! This book is a must have!!! ~ Kindle Customer
  • Oh man, THIS BOOK. It is amazing. And, like I stated above, all the things I love about reading. It's funny as hell--Matt's kindle adventures...enough said--and it had the ability to bring tears to my eyes at the drop of a hat. Who knew that laundry could have that effect on someone? It's chock-full of characters that just mesh perfectly, and angst that's never forced and just in the right amount to get your blood pumping. ~ Give Me Books
  • The book was absolutely fabulous. Over and over and over again I laughed out loud while reading it.  ~ Smitten with Reading
  • I FLOVED this book and i wish we had more.I laughed, cried an at one point i wanted to punch Matt in the junk. ~ Southern Babes Bookblog

Reviewed by Nikki K. for QUEERcentric Books

The Making of Matt by Nicola Haken is one of those books that has just about everything you could want, including a wicked sense of humor and smoking hot sex. It is the third book in Haken’s Souls of the Knight series.

Matt Carter was the drummer in the band, Souls of the Knight, and since the band broke up he’s been without direction.

He screws and drinks his way through life, with his best friend Alex at his side to make sure he doesn’t get into too much trouble.

Most days, Alex Clark forgets that his best friend is a famous rockstar. He sees Matt’s giant heart hidden behind his foul mouth, and somehow he ended up falling in love with the very straight and perpetually womanizing drummer.

Matt is the friend that everyone loves but at the same time is constantly annoyed with. He has absolutely zero filter for his mouth and liberally sprinkles everything he says with colorful insults and cuss words. It provides for very entertaining reading.

I love how Nicola Haken wasn’t afraid to handle a difficult subject in this book. I don’t want to spoil things for anyone, but Haken chose to shed light on an issue within the LGBTQ community that hardly ever gets discussed in romances and I have to give her mad props for that.

My absolute favorite parts in this book were the interactions between Matt and Ryder. The snark flows heavily between them and I was laughing my ass off. Everything about the waxing scene was hysterical.

“Without him, I would break into so many pieces I doubted I’d ever be able to put myself back together.” This is how Matt feels about Alex and it’s one of dozens of passages that I highlighted. Haken’s writing was so on point in every way.

I had been waiting what seemed like forever to read another "Souls of the Knight" story, and good things do come to those who are loyal and wait! When I first read "Being Sawyer Knight", I thought, this author is awesome! I didn't read the next book in this series for my own reasons, but was hoping the series was not done. I hadn't seen anything else by this author in regards to this series or on Facebook for awhile and wondered where she was. Well, good things do come to those who are loyal and wait!!! Matt and Alex's story was more than worth the wait!!!! I was so into this book, I read it in one night!! I hadn't realized how late/early it was, until my husband came into the den looking for me!! I couldn't put my kindle down!!! I laughed and cried!! One can only hope that they can find love like theirs!!! Great job Nicola Haken and please don't stop doing your thing Boo!!! This book is a must have!!!

I knew going in that this book, was going to be way different from the first two. But I was so out done by it. My love for Matt grew even more with this book. And what can I say about Alex, other then the man surprise me. We have to thank Sawyer for always being there to, talk some sense into the two idiots. Who by the way really love do each other. My Matt grow up so much and yet not so much, but with Alex by his side Matt is going to be fine. I'm going to miss the boys.

My Review:
This was such a fun book. I have not read the rest of the series (although I have print copies sitting in my TBR), but starting with Matt was not a bad idea. I love this guy, although he's a big man-child with the maturity level and attention level of a gnat. There's just something about him that makes him so freaking lovable even when you want to smack him upside the head.

But what I love most about Matt is that he is the way he is because he simply doesn't care about what other people think about him...until that hurts someone he loves. He has paparazzi and cameras which follow him everywhere, but he simply can't be bothered. He pays ZERO attention to what the media is saying about him and I love that. That especially comes into play in this relationship.

Matt has always been straight. That's not even a question. But when he begins to develop feelings and attraction for Alex, he doesn't worry that much about it after initially just wondering where the heck it's coming from. He definitely isn't worried about what someone else thinks. His only concern is that the attraction isn't from a genuine place which could really screw up the amazing friendship he has with Alex. Hurting Alex is his one and only concern. Seriously, I don't care how immature and mess up this guy is...how can you not love him for that?

The book was absolutely fabulous. Over and over and over again I laughed out loud while reading it. Matt's friends know and accept Matt's flaws and sometimes their reactions to him were even better than his antics in the first place. Some of the most epic scenes from the book came from Matt and Sawyer's little chats...I loved those and how Saw basically just told Matt to get his head out of his butt over and over again. LOL.

It was a fun book with a great romantic story. Now I need to go back and read the first two!

I truly loved this book. I really liked the first two and I truly hoped for this when Matt and Alex met. This was so much more than I could have imagined though. Matt realizing he was attracted to Alex and the confusion and coming to terms with it, I pretty much expected. The turn it took, I could never have seen coming. It may have seemed like Matt changed and matured overnight but really, he faces it all with the same "eff what the world thinks" attitude he had before. Mostly, it was a lot of the same failure to communicate trope, just with more serious overtones.

There was also lots of humorous moments, mostly generated by Matts lack of brain to mouth filter. The scene with Matt and Ryder at the salon, though, had me just ROFL! Another was the dick measuring texts. You'll see what I mean. Matt also faces family issues, some with great sadness, others with the same conviction and confidence in himself. That's what I enjoyed the most about him. Alex was a wonderful character, too. He accepted Matt just as he was, never wanting him to change his attitude or lose his exuberant nature. I also noticed very few errors in editing in this one. I'm sorry Nicola Haken was ill and lost her joy in writing for a while but this was one spectacular comeback.
