Review ~ Imagines (Imago #2)

Imago (Book #1): Amazon US | Amazon UK

Cover: Harper By Design





Imagines is the Latin plural for Imago, and the only thing better than one metamorphosis, is two.

Jack Brighton and Lawson Gale have been together for six months and are very much in love. Lawson’s work ensuring the survival of the Tillman Copper is demanding as ever, and Jack’s work with the regeneration of the bushfire-ravaged national park is just as hectic.

When Jack suggests they take a short trip, Lawson agrees. But then he is offered a two-week research position in tropical Queensland to help determine why the Ulysses butterfly is on the decline. Figuring they could combine work and pleasure, Jack and Lawson go on their first vacation together.

Working alongside renowned professor Piers Bonfils isn’t easy. But personal and professional differences aside, Lawson is offered a more permanent role in Queensland. Torn between his new life in Tasmania with Jack and a dying species of butterfly he feels compelled to save, Lawson has to decide where his fate lies.

But fate changes the rules. On a research expedition into the depths of the rainforest, suddenly it’s not only the butterflies’ existence that hangs in the balance

A butterfly’s life cycle never changes. From larvae to imago, their course is plotted by design. Jack and Lawson need to determine where they stand, if they live through it. Because the only thing more incredible than one imago is two.

 

I enjoyed Imago, but totally loved Imagines. Jack and Lawson are even more adorable in this story. They are several months into their relationship and deeply in love—just perfect for each other. A little bit of angst throws them a challenge. Could they really survive a long distance relationship as Jack claims? Thankfully they don’t get the chance to find out. Jack is there for Lawson when things don’t quite to plan on an expedition. I adored when Jack is beside himself with worry and barely keeping it together. And the ending and epilogue are just delightful. Superb writing and mastery of characters to engender warm and fuzzy emotions in the reader.

Looking forward to reading Red Dirt Heart Imago next. I wondered what the connection was when I read the deleted scene!

Review ~ Imago

 

Title: Imago

Author: N.R. Walker

Length: 45,000 words

Cover: Harper By Design

 

Nerdy, introverted genius lepidopterist, Lawson Gale, is an expert on butterflies. He finds himself in a small town in Tasmania on a quest from an old professor to find an elusive species that may or may not even exist.

Local Parks and Wildlife officer, Jack Brighton, is an ordinary guy who loves his life in the sleepy town of Scottsdale. Along with his Border collie dog, Rosemary, his job, and good friends, he has enough to keep from being lonely.

But then he meets Lawson, and he knows he’s met someone special. There’s more to catching butterflies, Jack realises. Sometimes the most elusive creatures wear bowties, and sometimes they can’t be caught at all.

Lawson soon learns there are butterflies he can’t learn about it in books. They exist only in a touch, in a kiss, in a smile. He just has to let go first, so these butterflies can fly.

Imago is the story of finding love, bowties, and butterflies.

 

This is a delightful and relatively angst-free story. NR Walker has created two distinct and very likeable main characters who are adorable together, along with a cute dog. The unusual setting of Tasmania makes a pleasant change as the two guys work together to track down an unrecorded butterfly. Jack takes Lawson on romantic dates each evening and they gradually fall head over heels for each other. These guys are just made for each other and there’s a gradual build up to some steamy sensual scenes. I also liked the excitement and increased pace towards the end of the story.

Nic produces easy-going and easy to read page-turners. This is a super sweet, feel-good story and the start of a new series. I’m looking forward to the next stage of Lawson and Jack’s relationship and hoping they work together again.
