“Every minute you’re alive is a second chance to start over.”

I’m sure exactly no one will be surprised when I say that Emma Scott wrote another magnificent book that will be going straight on my favorites list. I’ve read every book she’s written and she’s never let me down. Someday, Someday is her first m/m romance and she knocked it out of the park. It was beautiful, touching, heartfelt, and stunning.

I feel light. Smiling and so content after finishing Someday, Someday. A M/M romance with a sensitive and real subject matter that didn’t have me smiling when I first started this book.
The story was emotionally dark and heartbreaking but at the same time full of so much hope, love and light. So many dark clouds but as the story progressed and evolved light started to peak through those clouds and eventually bursting through them and evaporating them permanently.

Fuck yes, I was his. He owned me...

...and this book owned me—and Silas Marsh (and Max but mostly Silas) owned me—so much so, I’m currently on my third read. I figure you can’t get a book hangover if you don’t stop reading the book.

My emotions were (and still are) all over the place. I laughed a lot (Max has jokes) and I cried a lot more. Sobbed, actually. My heart ached then leaped, and my cheeks hurt from grinning. God, even when I was crying, I was grinning—because I was (am) so damn happy. T

-Started off loving it,

-Stalled around half way and I lost interest.


-The writing is solid.I liked the book layout.Duel povs and each chapter was the perfect length.

-I loved Max and adored Eddie who is up there as one of my favourite book characters.

-The Author's note at the end had me in tears.I'm sure this must have been a labour of love for her.

This was my 11th book of Emma Scott and once again she amazed me with an another beautiful story. I absolutely adored Silas & Max but also I loved the secondary characters too (especially Eddie & Faith).

This book is a must read and if you're okay to read M/M genre, I highly recommend this book to you. In fact I highly recommend all Emma Scott books to you. Trust me, she is truly amazing. :)

Feb 07, 2020 rated it it was ok

No matter how hard I tried to empathise with the characters, it felt as if Scott had placed them in this bubble all wrapped-up in glass, where the reader could only view them as specimens instead of actively embarking on their journey with them.

In the same breath, some elements of the story had echoes of Suanne Laqueur's A Charm of Finches and despite loving Suanne's absolutely heartbreaking storytelling, it only served to illuminate how completely clinical Max's and Silas' story was.

I'm soaking wet and drenched to the bone in pure distilled love that I found in the pages of Someday, Someday. I closed the book an hour ago, but my heart and brain are still hiding inside the pages. They refuse to come out, choosing to be a bystander in Max and Silas love (?) story, risking getting hurt by debris flying around when their love tatters & rips and than reside safely inside me.

I don’t know how I’m going to write this review, but I’ll try through all these snotty tears. I keep rubbing my chest trying to ease the ache. Once again Emma, you’ve left your imprint on my heart, and I now know that you have a gift.

When I read Emma’s books it’s much more than just a romance read, but a life changing, heart altering experience. This was my first ever M/M romance, but it was so much more than that. I feel like Emma reached down into m

emma scott really can really do no wrong in my eyes. it's been a year or two since i've picked up anything of hers but i'm kicking myself for not reading more of her backlist because this was FANTASTIC.

not in the mood to rehash the plot but the characters in this were perfect and perfectly flawed. the relationships and representation beyond just the lgbt+ was also awesome.

this was so heartfelt, heart wrenching, and ultimately... perfect.
I loved this one SO much!!

This is my first book by this author and it was a total winner! I didn't know what to expect but anyway it ended up in my 5 stars books and favorites from 2019 reads.

From the beginning I was so invested into Max's story. His rough past, his relationship with his family, parents and siblings. He did what he had to do to survive. He went down only to get up and fight for a new and better life!

When Emma Scott announced she’d be writing her first male/male romance, giving us Max’s story from Forever Right Now, I was beyond excited- one of my queens of all the emotions and all the feels writing one of my favorite genres?!? Yes, pease, can I have it now? There was never a doubt in my heart that she’d bring the same care and love, if not more, to this story, that she brings to her m/f books.

Five exquisite, masterpiece stars!

I always get this moment now, right before I open a new Emma Scott book, when I get this giddy rush of pleasure and anticipation. It’s that feeling of being completely secure in the knowledge that what I’m about to read is going to knock my proverbial socks off. Knowing that she’s going to destroy me emotionally but then put me back together so carefully that you’ll never see the cracks.

Whenever I get an Emma Scott book, I like to hide away for several hours so I can simply live and breath the whole thing in my insulated bubble of literary bliss. Unfortunately that didn't happen this time because life was super busy. Max and Silas' story had to be read over the course of a week, in small increments. Normally I want to be done with a book after 3 days max, ready to move on to the next. That was not the case this time. Spending just a few chapters each night with Max and Silas wa ...more

"Oh my god! Emma Scott does MM - come to mama" was my initial reaction to discovering Emma Scott was going to release Someday, Someday and I'm happy to say I got the feels and the angst I was hoping for.

This was a story of Max and Silas learning to love and trust in themselves and others, to be loved for who they are, not what they are, rising up above adversity. These boys had everything going against them and this book deals with a fair few sensitive issues - bigotry, homophobia, substance abu

I love Max and Silas and adore Eddie to bits, but the story is way too slow for me. A tad coincidental, convenient and repetitive here, a bit too much back and forth going on there... And now that the eye-rolls start to take over it's for the best for everyone involved that I'll bow out. :(

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Type: Standalone
POV: First Person - Dual

Life had not been easy on Max Kaufman. Forced to grow up on the street, he learned the hard way that survival meant protecting himself both physically and emotionally. A new job brought in not only hope for a new beginning but also a new distraction.

Silas Marsh might have everything he ever wanted, except one that he needed the most. As an heir to a successfu

Telling u right now, I will be looking for more of this author’s work. I forget if I’ve read her before, but after this book I will remember.

FIVE STARS BABY, this deserves every one, and i’ve Become stingier with age.

I love both heroes. I love Max’s sweetness and empathy and sensitivity and courage. I love Si’s strength, determination, directness, and also a great deal of courage.

It’s rather unbelievable that both are just 24 to have gone thru and done and learned everything they’d been thru.

How do you write a review for a book that's left you without words? You just do, because books like this are meant for the world to see, read, cherish, and love with new understanding.

This book is special and it's appropriate for our time. In a world where people are told they can't love who they want, marry who they want, and to give their desires to whom they choose, hurts my heart. Simple as that. I realize change is occurring and we have a long way to go before everyone says, "Love is love."

Such a relevant and significant story in today’s world. Emma Scott has delivered an important book...a story that needs to be told. She delivers it with grace, with beautiful words, unforgettable characters, with wisdom, humor, empathy and so much love. Someday, Someday is a powerful book with a powerful message.

I absolutely adore Emma Scott's stories for bringing up and going deep into sensitive and unique subjects. Someday, Someday was another brilliant example why. She tackled dark, stark and hard reality like a genius in this MM romance. And then she moulds the reality into the most epic, angsty and intense romance. I am at loss of words to describe the greatness of this story.

This story deals with three very important social issues. Addiction. Our society's inability to embrace homosexuality and it

This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful love stories I have ever read. It superseded every expectation I had and gave me more than I could have ever hoped for.


With a heartbreaking past, Max has fought hard to rise up from the bottom where he once lived to a place where he is ready to conquer his greatest pain and fear, his family. While Max embraces his life, Silas suffers from a trauma no one should ever be subjected to. Due to that trauma, he dons a mask, walks the walk and talks th
