Someday, Someday by Emma Scott

How long would you wait for love?

Max Kaufman was kicked out of his home as a teen and his life has been an uphill battle ever since. From addiction and living on the streets, to recovery and putting himself through nursing school, he’s spent the last ten years rebuilding his shattered sense of self. Now he’s taken a job as a private caretaker to Edward Marsh III, the president and CEO of one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. Max soon learns Marsh’s multi-billion-dollar empire is a gold and diamond-encrusted web of secrets and lies.

The longer Max works and lives with the Marsh family, the tighter the secrets tangle around him. And his heart—that he’s worked so hard to protect—falls straight into the hands of the distant, cold, and beautiful son of a dynasty…

Silas Marsh is set to inherit the family fortune, but his father is determined his heir be the “perfect” son. Before Silas can take over the company and end its shady business practices, he must prove himself worthy… and deny his true nature.

Silas must choose: stand up to his father by being true to himself and his undeniable feelings for Max. Or pretend to be someone he is not in order to inherit everything. Even if it means sacrificing a chance at happiness and real love.

While looking through the list of books to read in the review group, this one from Emma Scott came up and I knew without reading the blurb that I wanted to read it.

This story is not for those who do not like m/m stories or heartbreaking stories. If you only want the sappy love stories without all the pain, heartache, and love it takes to make a great story, then you need to move along, this story is not for you. For those that love the stories with all the angst that makes a story great, then please read this one and I hope you love it too.

Max was kicked out of his home as a teen when his dad caught him with another boy. He spent years on the streets doing things you never want to imagine. Now, years later and with the help of someone who cared, he has made something of himself. He is now working as a nurse in the E.R. but seeing all that he sees is beginning to get to him. Then a job offer lands in his lap.

Silas is the son of a wealthy family. He has the scars to prove it. Trying to make daddy proud and live the life daddy wants, but at what cost? When Silas goes to an NA meeting, he sees Max and something stirs inside him. He just watches him and listens. When he leaves the meeting and swears he will never go back. But the next meeting, Silas (or Steve as he introduces himself) finds himself there and he opens up and talks. When he goes to leave, he and Max literally run into each other. The electric current running between them is sizzling.

Will Max take the new job offered to him? Can Silas trust Max to tell him about his past? Will there be a future for Max and Silas? And what about Eddie, Silas' brother? Will Max ever reconcile with his dad?

This story is one that will break your heart in so many ways but don't worry, Emma Scott will put it back together eventually. The rollercoaster ride of emotions is from the very first page and continues until the very end. If you haven't read anything from Emma Scott yet, pick one, it doesn't matter which one, you will have a new author to read, I promise.

3.5 stars

This story is an explosion of emotion. It's basically the daytime soap opera version of m/m romance. The author throws absolutely every emotional issue possible at Max and Silas and then throws them together in increasingly untenable situations. Between addictions, prostitution, conversion therapy, wicked fathers, a family member with special needs, a fake fiancée, a crumbling family business dynasty, and more – there isn’t much room to breathe in this story. Somehow the book doesn’t go quite as badly wrong as it should, but this is definitely a story for readers who love over-the-top drama, angst, and sexual tension in their romance.

I think the unruly story is saved because Max is a very likeable character and we know from the start that Silas has the potential to be an absolutely fabulous character. The story works best in the intimate, personal moments. I had to roll my eyes at a couple of the exaggerated baddies but I enjoyed the more subtly crafted characters and relationships.

I didn’t love the writing style in this book but the characters grabbed me enough that I was able to ignore some of the overwriting and more bizarre descriptions. Readers who want grounded, realistic characters and plausible situations will not enjoy this story – but it will appeal to readers who want to read romance full of glamour and angst.

Emma Scott is a bestselling author of emotional, character-driven romances in which art and love intertwine to heal, and in which love always wins. If you enjoy thoughtful, realistic stories with diverse characters and kind-hearted heroes, you will enjoy her novels.
