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 completely adored Imago and was so excited to get more of Lawson and Jack and N.R. Walker 100% delivered! In this second installment, Jack and Lawson are going strong and totally, wonderfully in love and building their life together. I loved this book, it’s low-angst and relationship focused and it made my heart so freaking happy! Yes, Lawson and Jack are faced with some obstacles as their relationship grows, but they handle them together and work through whatever comes their way!
As Jack and Lawson try to take a vacation together, nothing goes quite as planned. Lawson is asked to consult on why a certain species of butterfly is in decline. Instead of traveling alone though, Jack accompanies Lawson on this trip. These two are so great together, a wonderful mix of science and romance! This trip isn’t everything they’d hoped it would be, there are serious challenges for the two, but they come out stronger than ever.
There is so much wonderful about not just Imagines but Imago as well! These characters are wonderful, real people that I felt like I got to know so well and their story very genuine. The science side of this story is fun and engaging and I really felt like I learned something while reading. I think N.R. Walker has done an amazing job creating a story with just the right amount of challenge that feels real for these characters but does not make it an angsty story. The focus is Lawson and Jack and their relationship. These books are definitely new favorites for me, I will undoubtedly read them again and again! And I have to address the ending – PERFECT! Oh my heart is happy and content! Thank you N.R. Walker for these unique and love-able men!

N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance.
She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
She is many things: a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.
She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things… but likes it even more when they fall in love.
She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.
She’s been writing ever since…
