When I think of Emma Scott romances, I think about how I know I'm going to get a read that really drills down deep into the emotional head space of her characters. I know that I'm going to feel a sorta of melancholic nostalgia in sepia tone. Does that even make sense? It's that sense of warmth and soft edges and curiosity about what you're looking at/reading that keeps you thinking about long after you've walked away from it. No matter what Emma Scott writes, I have that sense of warmth and soft edges and emotional fulfillment when I've put the novel down.

At first it's really Max who provides a lot of the warmth and softness in Someday, Someday; he has such a kindness and gentleness that comes off just right--not too soft, not too gentle, and he definitely takes no crap from anyone. He's easy to love. Silas, on the other hand, is chilly and stand offish and broody and tortured and the more you get to know him, the more you feel for him, want to fight for him. As the story of how's become the hard-nosed Silas is revealed, and the more he allows himself to relinquish some of the ways he's punished himself, the more you find yourself falling for him too. I guess what I'm saying is that it was easy to fall under the spell of Max but falling for Silas was equally rewarding. Somehow seeing those tough guys melt a little has a way of melting us all, doesn't it? I think I say this about all? of her novels--I really enjoyed meeting them and knowing them and now I find myself thinking about them days after reading their story.

In Someday, Someday Emma Scott takes on a lot with Max and Silas--addiction, alienation from family, and company corruption-- and in any other authors hands it may have been too much; but in her hands these major, heavy topics are given the space to be developed and woven into narratives that address each major plot point and work together seamlessly. 

This was not what I'd call an easy read. The past lives of Max and Silas are ones that I can't imagine having either one of my children live through and yet I know some parents, even in the more enlightened age of 2019, willingly allow or participate in. It's intolerable and terrible and hateful. So even though it was hard to read, I think it was important to read and to honor those who've lived through it and are sharing their stories; and for those who haven't, that we honor them by doing better. It's for this reason, and many more, that I appreciate that Emma Scott continues to create characters who not only give us something to think about but also give us hope that better days can come.

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.
