Series: Mountains & Men
Author: R.C. Martin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 15, 2016
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.]
My Review :
Thank you so much Enticing Journey Book Promotions for sending me an ARC of this book and Encore Worthy! I’m very grateful!! After that ending of Encore Worthy i was so happy that i had this to jump into next!!
5 I STILL WANT TO BE SAGE’S DOLLFACE STARS!!
I was looking forward to the continuation of Sage and Millie’s story and Worthy of the Harmony did not disappoint!! There are a lot of ups and downs in this book but it makes for one heck of a story!! Ms. Martin cured my Sage loving heart and left me feeling ecstatic by the end. Ms. Martin sure knows how to mess with your emotions and make your heart a mess.There’s more action and drama in this one which was awesome in my opinion and it added a lot to the story. The age difference between the two main characters was refreshing because i rarely see the heroine be older than the male lead. The ending left me with my jaw on the floor and the wait for Worthy of the Dissonance is going to be torture but i’m looking forward to it!!
Millie Valentine was a character that became more open as the story progressed. It was interesting to see her change but in a good way. Being a professor she doesn’t take crap from anyone and it cracked me up how she wouldn’t back down from Sage. She had a smart mouth and was determined to stay away from Sage even though her heart was telling her otherwise.I disliked her mother and how much of a jerk she was. I’ve got a new favorite nickname thanks to her and from now one every guy i’m interested in whether it be real life or books shall always be called Sexy McHottington. I hate that the her past messes with her present and her decisions regarding her love life.
This quote from Millie had me laughing till my stomach hurt “I’m being quite the silent bitch, but i don’t care.”
Sage McCoy was a character that was once arrogant (Okay still arrogant but in a sweet way) and to see him come out of his shell to be someone he wasn’t use to being was surprising which left me giddy. Him being the lead singer of Mountains & Men made my heart flutter, i’m no match for rock n’ roll men. I was so glad to explore more of how Millicent was his muse and how she inspired him to write songs.He was sexy and full of himself at times but that led to me loving him more. His relationship with his sisters was so sweet and at many points very hilarious during their interactions. He didn’t give up on proving what Millie means to him and he’s determined as ever to make his thoughts known by the last page.
One of my favorite lyrics from Sage is “Set me free but, baby don’t let go.” ❤
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a rocker read that is hot as fire and sweet enough to make you smile. Pre-Order this one today! You won’t regret it!! If you haven’t already pick up Encore Worthy to see how it all began!! I sure hope you adore this story as much as i do! 5 Stars all around!

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.
“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.
