Rating: ★★★★

A heartwrenching love story that shows how love, in all its forms, truly wins over bigotry and prejudice.

Someday Someday is a MM romance between two people who may be opposites in socioeconomic status but who have experienced the same intolerance from those who were supposed to love them most – their families.

Max Kaufmann is a nurse who’s fought hard to overcome the hardships in his life. After being thrown out on the streets by his own family at age 16 for kissing another boy he’s battled living on the streets and drug addiction and has come out the other side. He’s now back in his hometown hoping to renew his relationship with his family.

Silas Marsh is the COO of his family’s multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical company. He turned to his company’s own painkiller to numb himself from the PTSD he’s suffering from as a result of abuse he endured as a teenager. Looking for help to keep himself sober, he found himself at an NA meeting where he meets Max.

Unbeknownst to both men, Max ends up taking a job as an in-house nurse to Silas’ ailing father. The close proximity sparks their initial attraction but it’s an attraction that comes with great risks, especially for Silas.

I thought Someday Someday was a wonderful story that dealt with intolerance, love, acceptance and human tragedy. Both Max and Silas struggle with the lack of acceptance by their families for the simple fact that they are gay. This lack of acceptance has had severe consequences for both.

The star of this book for me was Silas. He was perseverance personified. He went through a horrific experience as a teen and years later is still suffering the consequences. He’s still under the thumb of his father, the man responsible for his suffering, because he needs his approval to take over the company. Only his approval comes at the cost of denying his true self.

I thought Emma Scott did a fantastic job really showcasing how lonely Silas is and just how much of himself he has had to deny for the sake of his father. He’s not only had to deny his attraction to men but he’s had to deny his passions as well. 

Max’s character was a great counterpoint even though they shared some parallel struggles. Though he’s no longer hiding the fact that he’s gay, he too is still struggling with acceptance from his family.

This was a heart wrenching book to see just how a person’s cruelty and homophobia can truly turn someone into a shell of a person. And yet, it was also a story of how love can help piece you back together. I’m not sure I believe some of the quick turn-around that occurred at the end of the book but it’s easily overlooked given the connection forged between these two lovers.

This was such a well-written book that I highly recommend reading. Thank you to NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book. All opinions are my own.
