This is another throwback review. I read this book back in 2019 and it was absolutely one of my top reads that year. Emma Scott is such an incredible author and I think this was her first M/M romance. It was beautiful and heartbreaking and I loved every second of it. I write all my reviews spoiler free, but sometimes I wish I wrote spoiler-y versions for myself to look back on because I’d love to relive all the details of this one. Perhaps I’ll have to squeeze in a re-read at some point!
In any event, read on to see my original review for Someday, Someday!
Wow, where do I even start? This book was a gem. I absolutely loved it! Has Emma Scott ever written an M/M book before? I’m not aware of any but she did an amazing job with this one. Max and Silas’ had a little of everything in it – traumatic pasts, tortured heroes, family politics, and corporate greed to name a few but at its core, it was a touching, heartwarming story that proves that regardless of the form it comes in, love is love.
I first fell in love with Max as Darlene’s best friend and sponsor in Forever Right Now and was super excited to finally get his story. If anyone deserves a happily ever after it’s him. He was a great guy right down to his core and I very much loved seeing the effect of his goodness and light on Silas who had been denied a critical part of himself for so long. Silas had been through an unthinkable ordeal thanks to his father in an attempt to “fix” him.
There were some truly infuriating aspects to this book but it was also sad because to some degree the things that Silas went through actually happen in real life. Be prepared to want to fling your kindle/book in anger on several occasions. The angst was off the charts in this book but it all felt authentic and made the reward at the end that much more satisfying.
I have to say, the epilogue was a doozy! I teared up a few times during that part alone! I thoroughly enjoyed Max and Silas’ journey and my heart is very full after finishing this amazing read!
