Poor Emma. So totally out of her league! She was presented as almost goody two-shoes, and Wraith as an unwashed waif (“with puppy dog eyes”) who wore the same torn clothing day after day. I just didn’t feel the attraction or the sexual tension there.
That being said, I liked the way the author showed the gradual change in Wraith, along with his setbacks. I didn’t like how he took out his frustration on Emma and yet she just melted back into his arms every time, however.
There’s a scene with a priest that I think was the turning point for Wraith learning to forgive himself. The author added this faith element but then didn’t do much with it. I think it would have been more challenging to write, but also much more impactful if we saw him struggle with this faith idea.
My biggest complaint (my pet peeve) is that there is a lot of head-hopping from one character to another, sometimes from paragraph to paragraph.
This is such a sweet story out of the tragedy of a rock 'n roll lifestyle taken bit too far one wild night. Like all of Maria's heroines, Emma is a bit more sweet and innocent than I ever remember being, but it just adds to the overall sweetness of the story. Maria has become one of my go to authors when I want something a little on the fluffier side, knowing an HEA is in store. Her rockstars are flawless, however damaged they may be.
This one is a great bittersweet page turner - sorry for any burns Angel and Phantom, there were just a few places where I couldn't hold back the tears. But I loved the story through and through.
death and rebirth of the human spirit. Melancholy and bittersweet, The Balcony is breathtakingly
poignant. In this day and age, no one captures that elusive, true gothic essence quite like Maria
Bernard. It’s everything that great gothic romance should be. As with all of Maria’s stories, I felt
so comfortable with all of the characters that I didn’t want to leave them when I reached the end
of the book.
