Tell us your name and a little bit about yourself.
I’m Beck Harmon, the middle of
the Harmon siblings, younger than my twin, Burk, by a couple minutes. The one
who doesn’t have his act together yet. The prodigal. I kinda lost myself for a
while, who I was, what I believed in. Took me ten years, but I finally found my

least, that’s how it’s been for the last decade. But since I came home for my
sister’s wedding, that whisper to stay is gaining traction and digging in. And
besides, Savvy’s here.
What is a quirk of your personality that most people
I reckon I have a few quirks.
Don’t we all? When stress hits, I tend to run to the loudest, noisiest place I
can find to drown out that voice in my head. The one that screams I’m just like
my father. Since coming back home, though, I’ve noticed that the voice is fading.
Might have something to do with a certain golden haired beauty…
Over the years, I’ve worked
several jobs, but the one I enjoy most? Remodels. Crazy, isn’t it? It’s a sweaty,
dirty job, but I’m good at visualizing the beauty beneath the rubble and restoring
a space to the treasure it once was.
What obstacles did you have to overcome to reach your
Might’ve saved some time if
you’d asked what we didn’t have to overcome. First, God had to hit me over the
head with a sledge hammer to get me to accept that I am my own person, that my life
isn’t determined by my father's choices. As if that wasn’t enough, I had to
prove to Savvy that I wouldn’t take off again when things got rough. That got a
little dicey when I was offered a job a couple hours away, and it sure didn’t
help that there was a hometown veterinarian circling like a vulture, waiting to
swoop in and make things permanent with her.
Tell us about your special lady. What makes her
She’s honest, doesn’t play
games like a lot of women I’ve known. She’s a firefighter, feels called to save
lives, and she’s strong physically and spiritually. Her sweet, humble spirit
draws me like a bee to honey. Her eyes
mesmerize me, always have. Hazel, but when she looks at me, they seem to
transform from brownish gold to emerald, melting-like, as if I’m some dreamy
guy. Makes me want to be that man for her.
The first time you saw her, what did you think? Did
you like her immediately, or did she have to grow on you?
Immediately, no question. In
all the years I was gone, I never stopped loving her. That love was what kept
me away, but it was also love that brought me back home.
