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.
Someday, Someday is a M/M romance, a genre I haven’t really read a lot of, the story feature sensitive and real subjects and life challenges. It was an emotional rollercoaster of a story, it was dark and heartbreaking but it was also so full of so hope and love.
The story focuses on two young men Max and Silas, who both went through a horrific past, their teenage years were not what they were supposed to be, Max is a lot more open about his experiences, with Silas seemingly blocking everything out and internally fighting a horrendous battle alone, until he meets Max at an AA meeting and then life throws them together…
From the very beginning I was completely invested in Max. Coming from his rough past, his very rocky relationship with his family. He didn’t really have anything stable, no real roots but, he did what he had to do to survive, his journey was so admirable.
And Silas… I loved his character, the tortured soul type… at first I was sure about him, but as bits of his story got revealed, my heart got heavy and aches for him.
The two shared a similar back story, in that their family, or particularly their fathers did not accept their sexuality, being gay was seen to be wrong in their eyes.
The chemistry between the two character is undeniably powerful and real, I was swooning a lot during this read.
I absolutely loved the story and the way Emma wrote it, it was tough at times to read, there are some trigger warnings that are hard, abuse, drugs, self harm, conversion therapy to name a few, so maybe be wary if you could be triggered by any other those, Emma did such justice to the characters hard times however and I highly recommend giving this one a read.
It is sad and frustrating at times, but it’s a beautiful… and steamy romance.
Emma Scott has written a wonderful story as her M/M romance. The words were beautiful, she created their world so well and the characters were written magnificently, I love Emma’s books, and I loved that Max got his own book, if you haven’t check out Emma’s other books, especially Forever Right Now, my favourite of hers and where Max first shows up!
