She is guarded.

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.]

Review by Melody’s Love 4 Books

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!

Sage

I draw in a deep breath as sleep slips out of my grasp and then blow it all out as I peek open one eye. The sun, which is already high in the sky, is pouring through the curtain of my window. I usually close the blinds before I go to bed to prevent this kind of morning greeting; but when I open my other eye and look at the reason I forgot, I could give a fuck.

 

Millie’s on her side facing me, her arms curled up against her chest, her legs tangled with mine. Her long, ashy brown hair is fanned out across my pillows, leaving her face on display for me to admire. She’s so damn beautiful, I could stare at her all morning. Or, rather, all afternoon. I like how she’ll sleep well past noon on a Sunday, as if that’s what Sundays were intended for. 

 

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a repeat guest in my bed. Most of my hookups don’t happen here at all, but I meant what I said last night. I like having her here. I also liked having her at the show last night. When she came backstage with Violet after our set, it was like my whole body was abuzz with the reminder that I want this girl. This woman. I haven’t yet taken her out on a real date, just the two of us. She still seems reluctant to go there with me. But this is a battle I intend to win. And soon. I want more of her—more of her smart-ass mouth, more of her sexy giggle, more of her drop dead gorgeous face. Fuck, I sound like a pussy. 

 

I don’t even give a shit. 

 

I drape my arm around her and draw her closer, wishing to feel her warm skin pressed against mine. I sure as hell want more of this body all over me. She’s hands down, dick up, the best lay I’ve ever had. Every damn time. 

 

I lean over and press a kiss against her bare shoulder and she sighs, stirring up my dick. A smirk pulls at the corner of my mouth as I kiss her again, making my way toward her neck. She squirms, nestling herself closer to me, her thigh brushing against my cock. I pull her even closer and nibble on the soft, fragrant skin just below her jaw. She tastes both salty and sweet, her skin still sticky from our tumble in the sheets early this morning. I can smell the lingering trace of vanilla that she wears, too.

 

“If you leave a mark, I’ll kick your ass,” she mumbles, her lips grazing my throat. The sound of her morning voice, raspy from sleep, has my cock’s full attention.

 

“Oh, yeah?”

 

“Mmm,” she hums.

 

“And if I do it where no one will see it?” 

 

As soon as the words pass through my lips, I duck my head and latch onto the side of her boob. I bite while I suck and she gasps, her hands finding their way into my hair. I pull away and admire the pink mark I’ve left, then smile when I look up at her. Her lips are parted, her breathing slightly ragged, and her eyes are barely open. I know right away that it’s lust I see in her hooded gaze and not exhaustion. I decide to take it upon myself to change that.

 

I’m a born and bred Coloradan. While I now reside in Virginia, the land of the Rocky Mountains is where I’ve left a piece of my heart and where my characters come to life. 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.
