There is only one Sage Lawrence McCoy. He's earned my heart, and I don't want it back.
The best thing about RC Martin's writing? It's the utter definition of romance.

Spending time in the Mountains & Men world with Sage and Millie is like being surrounded by a warm blanket on a cold night, cuddled up with the person you love most in the world --> you can insert whatever scenario you find appealing of course, but you get the idea. I love this series.

And while no book is perfect and I c
4.5 stars

My favorite book in the series so far. When I wasn't reading it I was thinking about it wondering if everything was going to be okay between Sage and Millie. I am now so emotionally invested in these amazing characters and just want them to get the HEA they deserve.

Sage is my #1 book boyfriend ever! I seriously am in love with this man! I have been anxiously awaiting for this book because I just couldn't stand thinking of him being so heartbroken from the previous book. I devoured this book in hours and I loved every single word.

"You make my heart sing. You're my best girl, baby. I love you because I can't help it. "

RC Martin has fast become one of my favorite authors ever. Her books have so much depth and emotion to them. I feel like her characters are m

Worthy of the Dissonance is volume 2 of the Mountains & Men series. If volume one, Worthy of the Harmony, was Sage’s story, then this is Millie’s story. We find out more about her past and why she was so afraid to give her heart to completely to Sage. We find out about her relationship, or lack thereof with her parents, and how this shaped her into the person she was until the day Sage sung his way into her life and put the music into her heart.

Wow I am really enjoying the Mountains and Men Series! Love the characters in the story. They are a band but they are more than that. They are a family who have each other's back and those important to their family members.

Millie's father left when she was 6 and her mother wasn't much of a mother to her. Millie was not nurtured by her mother like Sage was by his mother. He has a family with parents, sisters and more. Her heart was broken so long ago by her parents that she guards her heart and

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Worthy of the Dissonance is the second book in the Mountains and Men series. It continues from where Worthy of Harmony ended in a cliffhanger that had your head spinning, wanting to knock sense into Millie and Sage, and feeling so many emotions.

We are brought back to Millie and Sage trying to figure out how to make a long distance relationship work. Their reconciliation not the greatest moment, Sage making me hate him for his treatment of Millie and

This book is not a standalone, and this story picks up straight on from where Worthy of the Harmony ends. I never thought it was possible when I started reading this series to love the characters more with each book, but it is happening! Sage and Millie are perfect for each other, and support each other no matter what. When Millie finally admits to herself about her feeling for Sage, she finally feels at peace and complete. When her past comes back to haunt her and she has to face her childhood ...more

NOT A STANDALONE!!!! This book picks up right where Worthy of Harmony left off. In WOH we were left with a cliffhanger and we got answers and RC did not disappoint. Sage and Millie's relation is growing and Sage's band is getting bigger. I know I said before that I loved this series but I really do and I know if you read it you will too. One thing about this book you will be left with a cliffhanger so RC HURRY UP and write write write!!!

This is one of those stories that you MUST read the previous books, as the last one ended in a cliffy. So Worthy of Harmony book 1, ended with Millie ending things with Sage, and Sage having to leave for a six week tour. Sage isn't dealing with this absence and with the silence from Millie too well. When she is talked into going and surprising Sage half-way through, things don't really go the way that Millie had intended them to go, in fact, Sage storming off and leav

Worthy of the Dissonance is book 3 in the Mountains and Men series and please note you do want to read these books in order. It picks up where Worthy of the Harmony leaves off and Sage and Millie are both miserable as they are separated while Mountains and Men is on tour.

I thought Millicent continued to show nice character growth through the story ( I especially loved her at the end leading up to the cliffhanger) and all the elements I loved from the first two books continue here.

The more I read about Mountains and Men, the more I love them. I feel a part of their lives. I love Sage so hard! That boy can have my heart! I know it'll be safe with him. I still feel how fragile Millie is. I can't fault the writing or the storyline. It just flows along at a perfect rate.
Millie is getting stronger with Sage's love and constant reassurance and support in all areas of her life. He is always saying and doing the right thing. The band's success is building now and we ar

This is the best rock romance series I have read in a while. Every book is 5 stars so far and I am waiting on the edge of my seat for the final installment.
This story had me glued to my Kindle. It picks up right at the end of book 1 and we go on a pretty heavy emotional ride. My heart was actually breaking for Sage and if my younger self didn't share a few behaviours as Millie I might of not liked her for how she upset him.
Sage again is so book boyfriend worthy. He is such a combination of sex

This is my favorite series by her so far and I cannot get enough of the sexy rocker, Sage. SWOON!!!!!
I enjoy reading about Millie and Sage's journey as they grow in their relationship. There were times I was frustrated with Millie for being so stubborn and nearly wrecking her relationship with Sage. I was able to relate to her on many levels, so it made for a decent read.
There were times that I felt like Millie's character fell short and was too needy and unstable. Much unlike how she was wh

Wow! I still can not get enough of Sage and Millie! They are made for each other! Millie has tried to fight her feelings for Sage, and has wondered if she was really worthy of his love. When she finally realizes she can't live without him, she feels complete. They will get through everything together; his touring that will separate them for long periods of time, her issues with her childhood and her family. Sage is determined to be there for Millie through every up and down and support her, as s ...more

I loved this book!!! Millie and Sage did not dissapoint, wow!!
Worthy of the Dissonance is not a standalone, this is the second book of the Mountains and Men Series and you should read two more books before this one.
I love how things are turning out for Millie and Sage in this book! They've been through so much, specially Millie, and it's like finally they start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Millie's character is simply fascinating, she grows so much as a person in this one, Sage's pa
