She is inspirational.
She is worthy of more than an encore.
He is alluring.
He is confident.
He is more than she ever bargained for.
Her stubbornness battles against his persistence…
His optimism outshines her resistance…
And their song plays on.
Sage McCoy has always been the type of guy who goes after what he wants. For years, what he’s desired most is to see his band, Mountains & Men, become more than Saturday night entertainment at a local bar. He swears he’ll chase that dream until it comes true, or he’ll die trying. Now, he senses that he and his mates are on the precipice of something amazing, and he’s never wanted anything more.
Except, perhaps, Millicent Valentine—the woman he craves above all others.
Millicent Valentine believes in one absolute truth: Men always leave. Yet, despite her belief that Sage will eventually tire of her, she can’t help but indulge her desire for him. She makes up her mind that he can have her body, but he isn’t allowed her heart. Though, she never anticipated that the leading man of Mountains & Men would be so much more than the arrogant little shit she imagined him to be.
[Worthy of the Harmony is a continuation to Encore Worthy, so make sure you read that first! This is the second of four installments revolving around Sage and Millie. Intended for audiences 18+ years of age due to explicit language and sexual content.]

Rating: 5 stars
Worthy of the Harmony is the second installment in the Mountains & Men series and the follow-up to Encore Worthy. The series follows the love story of Sage McCoy & Millicent Valentine. Let me just take a quick moment to say how much I love their names! Ok, back to my review.
Sage is the leader of his band, Mountains & Men, and he is completely focused on making them a household name. He meets Millicent Valentine, who is not at all amenable to Sage’s charms. On paper, they couldn’t be more different, he’s a 21 year old hoping to be the next famous rocker and she is a 26 year old college professor.
You might think just from that description, they probably won’t work. Yet, they have a huge thing going thing for them and that is the sexual chemistry between them. It’s apparent that they want each other, but there are some obstacles and one major one is the ideas that Millie’s mother has put in her head about men.
In fact, I really wanted to slap this woman. Instead of educating her daughter on what could happen and how to be independent yet still love someone, she made her a fearful mess. That’s not ok with me. Because of these issues, Millie is determined that things are going to be on her terms. In my opinion, she had one foot out the door with Sage…kind of like she was going to be the one to leave before she got left. In order to do this, she only would trust him with her body.
My heart hurt for Millie. She had everything any woman could want: a hot dirty talking bad boy with a heart of gold that wanted to give her the world. It’s going to be up to her to see if she can actually put her fears aside and let herself love Sage as well as accept his love and not just in the physical sense.
So, we have 2 more books in this series to find out what will happen with these two. I have high hopes for them. Congratulations to RC Martin for such a well-written and amazing book. I can’t wait for the next one!

When I’m not writing I’m reading; when I’m not reading I’m writing…you know how it goes! I also enjoy cooking, baking, crocheting, and jigsaw puzzles. Basically, I’m an old soul with a young heart, nonchalantly waiting for my prince to come.
