How long would you wait for love?


EVERYONE needs to read this book! Riveting, electric, and poignant. Emma does not waste her words. Every sentence, every line of this story was magic.–Kate Stewart USA Today Bestselling Author

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.

My Review

Life-changing!

When teenager Max Kaufman is caught kissing a boy by his confused and angry father he is banished from the family home and forced onto the streets. Lonely, scared and depressed, Max turns to drugs and soon spirals into the life of an addict. It takes the help of a kind stranger to turn his life around.

Years later, Max returns to Seattle to attempt a reconciliation with his family and accepts a position as a nurse for multi-billionaire Edward Marsh of Pharma Pharmaceuticals, a vocal homophobic. Max would quit, but he is drawn to the dark, moody, and incredibly handsome Silas Marsh and can’t walk away.

As a teen, Silas battled with the loss of his mother, his father’s growing bitterness, raging hormones, and his sexuality. When he embarrasses his father by getting caught with the son of an acquaintance he is sent to a ‘boys camp’ in the arctic for 6 grueling months of torture. He returns a cold shell of himself and after a rough recovery, including a bout with addiction to pain meds, he buries himself in his studies and rises to the top in his father’s firm.

Then a new nurse is hired, a man Silas met at a NA meeting and all the emotions he was programmed to reject, the overwhelming attraction for another man- Max- threatens to destroy the tenuous peace with his father. At the same time, Silas learns of Pharma’s complicity in providing the drug to thousands that turned them into addicts- and for many, death. Love for his brother, who suffers from aspergers disease, stops him from leaving the Marsh heritage, and his father, behind.

The growing attraction between Silas and Max creates a world of problems for both men, but love happens whether we’re ready or not.

There are so many levels to this story, I can’t articulate all of them. Scott expertly twines Max and Silas around the readers heart- you can’t help but hope for these two!

Our country has faced an opioid crisis for years now. Thousands of lives have been lost- good lives. Fathers, mothers, children who should have the care and respect they deserve.

While Canada accepts and welcomes gay marriage, I am very aware that we have a long way to go in the way we treat anyone perceived as ‘different’.

It is books written with heart and soul like Someday, Someday that will hopefully make a difference.

I give Someday, Someday 5+ lovely kisses- get out the tissues!

  3. This is a wonderful sounding story, Jacquie. Very moving. I have a number of friends who are gay and who are very happy together. It has been a hard road for most of them though as acceptance is not that general in Africa as yet.

    What a great review, Jacqui. I love the current subjects tackled in it. I have the same hope love will be considered not different in the future and to include the pharmacologic epidempic, too which I’m still wrapping my head around the pure greed.
