Wow – what an emotional journey, so many feels! Zee and Alexis will definitely capture your heart in this powerful story about finding real, true love! Zee is an amazing character, with such a wonderful heart but carrying so much pain. There are secrets he keeps and a guilt that never leaves him. When he meets Alexis, he knows he should stay away but he can’t, he knows that she will change everything.

This really was a journey for these two, both Alexis and Zee have their own issues they are trying to get through. There’s something between them though, something intense and undeniable. It’s not that easy though of course, they may be perfect for each other but it doesn’t seem like they really can have a future, especially in Zee’s mind. The past and present collide in a huge way for both Zee and Alexis and everything unravels for them both.

I adored seeing these two fall in love with each other, they really are two beautiful souls. Zee’s pain and struggles are raw and real but once he starts working through it all and sees what Alexis really means to him, as well as the others in his life, it all comes together beautifully and goes right to the heart! Alexis has such a wonderful heart and her love and support for Zee are exactly what he needs.

Overall, this really was a great read that grabbed me by the heart from the very beginning. I loved their journey, even when it was painful because it all came together so very beautifully! This is definitely a must-read from A.L Jackson.

Release Blitz & Review: Just a Little Junk by Stylo Fantome

 Today we are please to share in the release blitz for Just a Little Junk by Stylo Fantome! This book was something else – a fun and thrilling ride! I hope you’ll check out my review and these fun teasers! This is definitely one book you don’t want to miss!

Title: Just a Little Junk
Author: Stylo Fantôme
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Comedy

Release Date: May 22, 2017

 

Blurb
Jodi Morgan is having a bad weekend. After partying a little too hard, she wakes up with a monster
hangover and almost no recollection of the night before. So imagine her
surprise when she looks in her trunk and instead of finding a spare tire, she
finds the last guy she’d danced with before blacking out.

Who is he? How did he get in there? How did he die? And oh dear lord, did she
kill him!?

When her older brother’s best friend offers to help, things start looking up.
They’ve known each other since she was thirteen, and ten years later, he still
treats her like a little kid – surely, committing felonies has to trigger some
sort of spark. Together, they wind up going on an adventure that takes them all
over Los Angeles. From raves to penthouses to strip clubs. All in the search
for the answer to her question.

Who is the dead guy in my trunk!?

Warning: This book contains some dark humor, a lot of witty banter, and two
characters making more bad decisions than good ones. Also contains adult
themes, language, and graphic sexual activity.

 

4.5 Stars
Oh wow – what a freaking ride! This book was so not what I expected, but it really was a fun, thrilling ride! Stylo Fantome has created a fantastic mix of humor and suspense and  a few ‘what did I just read’ moments thrown in. Jo and Archer are fantastic, if dysfunctional, characters!
After a night of hard partying, Jodi wakes up the next morning with a nasty hangover and a dead body in her trunk. No really, a dead body! Not knowing who he is or how he ended up there she enlists the help of Archer, her brother’s best friend and her long time crush. Together these two set out to try to figure who the dead man is and how he ended up in Jo’s car.
So, I don’t want to spoil a minute of this hilarious trip for anyone so I will just say this is a must-read. I laughed and cringed and laughed some more as these two stumble through their quest finding trouble everywhere they go! I loved the twists and turns, I never knew what to expect next. This book is fast paced, action packed and so inappropriately funny from start to finish. I truly enjoyed how different this story was, no frilly good girl and rich prince to save the day, nope these characters are gritty and raw and wonderfully crazy!

Author Bio
Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since … forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

Nursing student Xavier James is shocked to run into the first man to ever break his heart while at a gay club. His ex is sexier than ever, but Xavier is not going down that road again … only, when they end up working together at an urgent-care clinic, his willpower will be tested.



Trent Cavendish made a huge mistake at age 18 when he walked away from his first love. Twelve years later, Trent is rattled when his friend suddenly dies. He takes a hard look at his life, realizing how empty it has become. Determined to re-evaluate his priorities and make amends, he returns to his hometown to win Xavier’s forgiveness and maybe even his heart.



Times have changed. Instead of the sweet but tame boyfriend he left behind, he finds a smoking hot man dressed in bits of lace and silk. Trent’s good intentions turn to lust, and love isn’t far behind. But Xavier is wary. The villain of his memories is proving to be a decent guy, but has he really changed or is Xavier just a new goal to chase?

4 Stars

I have definitely enjoyed this series and was really looking forward to Xavier’s book and I wasn’t disappointed! I’m a big fan of second chance stories and this book hit all the marks for me when it came to that story line. I was totally rooting for these two and their much deserved HEA!

Xavier and Trent dated in high school and had plans to go to college together, but when Xavier made the choice to put his family before going off to college, Trent ends things and walks away. Over a decade later neither man has really moved and when reality hits Trent with a wake up call, he knows he needs to try to fix things with Xav.

I really felt for these guys, they had a wonderful love at a young age, but that same young age had them making quick decisions where both men ended up hurt and angry. When Trent returns to Ashe to try to make things Xavier really makes him earn it. Xavier doesn’t want to get hurt like that again and has to decide if he can let Trent back into his heart. I loved how these two come back together though, realizing that their love for each really never disappeared. These two have struggles to face though, it’s not all easy, even when they think they have a second chance. They have to learn to trust each other and work together, and it’s definitely tested.

I really enjoyed their journey, it was a great mix of sweet, loving, hot and challenging. These two definitely have HOT chemistry together and a connection that runs deep. I loved the appearances of Zane and Paul, that was a fun addition to the story. I do have to admit that I struggled a bit with Helen and her role in their story, for some reason it was hard for me to fully get on board with it, but in the end I was okay. I did love the way it all came together and seeing Xavier and Trent get their happiness and love was satisfying!

Blog Tour & GIVEAWAY: Bayside Desires by Melissa Foster

If you’re looking for a sweet, fun read we’ve got the book for you! Bayside Desires is the perfect feel-good beach read and today I’m excited to share my review. This book will definitely get you in the mood for summer! I hope you’ll check it out and don’t miss the awesome giveaway too!

Happy Reading!

~Jenn

Synopsis

Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.

BAYSIDE SUMMERS is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.

“​With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!” -NYT Bestseller Julie Kenner​

“Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!” -NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely​

In Bayside Desires…
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.

Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.

Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.

All Bayside books can be read as standalone novels or as part of the series:
Coming Soon…
Bayside Passions
Bayside Heat
Bayside Escape

Bayside Summers is part of the Love in Bloom romance collection by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. While each book may be read as a standalone, you might enjoy reading the entire Love in Bloom series. Characters from each sub-series appear in future books.

jenn-review

3.5 – 4 Stars

Bayside Desires is a sweet read, that prefect lazy day or beach read where you want something to make you smile and swoon – this is that book! Rick and Desiree are wonderful characters that you can relate to and fall in love with. I think this a fun start to a new series I’m definitely looking forward to.

Desiree and Rick have both ended up in The Cape for the summer, Desiree tricked and guilted into running her mom’s gallery with her half-sister and Rick is there working on a resort with his brothers. When the two meet there is an instant connection for both and it’s the start of a sweet summer (and hopefully longer) romance! Rick and Desiree both have things to work out this summer though and the question is can they do it together.

For me this was a fun and sweet read, heart-warming and full of characters you want to be your friends. I really adored Rick, his heart and his sense of humor just totally got me. Desiree is such a sweetheart, I loved seeing her grow in this story. Yes, we’ve got some insta-love here but there are things these two have to deal with, coming to terms with families, forgiveness and life choices. Overall, an enjoyable read and I’m really looking forward to more in this series!

Blurb:

There will be a battle, and you will need to protect your heart.

Kjell of Jeru had always known who he was. He’d never envied his brother or wanted to be king. He was the bastard son of the late King Zoltev and a servant girl, and the ignominy of his birth had never bothered him.

But there is more to a man than his parentage. More to a man than his blade, his size, or his skills, and all that Kjell once knew has shifted and changed. He is no longer simply Kjell of Jeru, a warrior defending the crown. Now he is a healer, one of the Gifted, and a man completely at odds with his power.

Called upon to rid the country of the last vestiges of the Volgar, Kjell stumbles upon a woman who has troubling glimpses of the future and no memory of the past. Armed with his unwanted gift and haunted by regret, Kjell becomes a reluctant savior, beset by old enemies and new expectations. With the woman by his side, Kjell embarks upon a journey where the greatest test may be finding the man she believes him to be.

I was so excited to see a second The Bird and The Sword Chronicles book and even more so when I saw it was going to be Kjell’s story and Amy Harmon did not disappoint! This book, just like the first one, is an experience, it will sweep off your feel and transport you to a different world. The characters are captivating and the story is all consuming!

I fell so freaking hard for Kjell – oh my goodness! He was definitely an intriguing character in The Bird and the Sword, but now as the main focus, I just loved him so much! He is just everything! His love and devotion, despite his rough exterior just made my heart melt. He’s easily one of my favorite characters from Amy Harmon. Sasha is also her own form of amazing, she’s pure and real even in a world she doesn’t remember, trying to sort out the future.

I loved this journey and don’t want to spoil it for any reader, but I can guarantee you will be transported into this world, living with these characters in every moment. I’m not one to typically read fantasy but I love this series. I didn’t know if Amy Harmon could do better than The Bird and The Sword but I’m going to say she did with Kjell and Sasha’s journey.  I loved the way their story started and I adored the way it all came together – a beautiful ending! I cannot wait to go back to Jeru!

Title: A Worthy Man
Series: The Men of Halfway House #5
Author: Jaime Reese
Genre: M/M Romance
Release: May 2, 2017
Photographer: Eric McKinney of 6:12 Photography

A story of two men and the boundless love that forever changed them. 


Vannguard Shaw has spent the last ten years serving a life sentence and adjusting to the ache of solitude. He accepts his fate, a sacrifice for the only man he ever loved and the one person who saw beyond his rough edges.

Drayton grew up with a trust fund and pre-planned future, but an unexpected encounter one night forces him to abandon everything and start from scratch. He is now a self-made man and developer of one of the most sought after electric exotic automobiles in the world with a fortune greater than that of his birthright. Yet, he’d surrender it all—again—for the only man who’s still ever-present in his heart.

After a decade and entirely too much distance between them, Vann is suddenly released back into a world that has been nothing but cruel. Drayton never lost hope they would once again reunite and pick up where they left off, but Vann’s stubborn nature and repeated encounters with a heartbreaking world prove to be a challenge.

Vann needs to tap into his fighting spirit’s reservoir of strength and hope life doesn’t punish him for taking a chance. Only then will he realize his own value and feel worthy enough to finally have Drayton’s heart. And their chance at forever.


* Although part of a series, this full-length novel can be read as a stand-alone. *Word count: 124K

EP Review

4.5 Stars

I have really enjoyed The Men of the Halfway House series and this book just blew me away. I love a second-chance story and these books have all definitely been about second chances, but for Dray and Vann their second chance is a bit different, and I loved it. This story is low on angst but big on emotion and love and hope!

Dray and Vann met when they were teens and had an immediate connection. Neither of them really fit in, but they fit together. Dray was the rich, smart kid but really couldn’t read people. Vann is the tough, poor kid with a rough upbringing. They shouldn’t be friends but they are best friends and it becomes more, both knowing they’ve found their true loves. But tragedy strikes and Vann ends up in prison, serving what is supposed to be a life sentence. He doesn’t want Dray to see him like that but each week Dray writes to Vann, telling him about himself and sharing their memories. Dray isn’t about to give up on Vann and eventually he works for his release and ten years later Vann is out of prison, and hopefully back in Dray’s life.

For me, this was a story about hope; hope for love, for rebuilding their lives together and hope for the future. Vann struggles with his worth in life and man was it a powerful journey with him as he discovers who he is and how valuable he is. He’s always loved Dray but hasn’t always felt worthy of that love. I loved that Dray never lets him doubt that for a minute. And on the other side, Dray has his own insecurities that Vann so easily and naturally helps him overcome. These two are just amazing together, bringing out the best in each other.

Even though this story is low on the angst it still carries so much emotion. Both Dray and Vann have been through so much, but these are two are so truly committed to each other it’s about working it out together. This is a book that will absolutely capture your heart and make you just fall in love! I think this story is a fantastic addition to this series and cannot wait for more! A definite must read!

“Emotionally, beautiful and inspiring” – Amanda L Amazon Reviewer

“A great addition to this series. One of the most romantic books I’ve read this year.” – Bayou Book Junkie

“Overall…Their story is beautiful, heartbreaking, inspiring, sexy, and moving.” – Two Book Pushers

 

“C’mon,” Drayton said, tugging Vann by the hand. After breakfast and a countertop quickie, they had immediately returned to the bedroom and had been hibernating there since. He had no objection to spending all day in bed, but he had a surprise for Vann and couldn’t stand waiting any longer. “I want to show you the rest of the house.”
“But I like the bedroom.”
Drayton chuckled, pulling him up with more force. “We can come back after.”

“Fine,” Vann grumbled, finally sitting up on the bed with a dramatic pout.


“You’re cute when you don’t get your way.”

“Cute enough to stay in bed?” He waggled his eyebrows and petted the bed. “It’s really soft.”
Drayton leaned in and gave Vann a chaste kiss, jerking back quickly to avoid his grasp.

 

Vann’s laughter filled the room. “Damn. You’re still super-fast.” He reluctantly stood and stretched his arms over his head.

 

Drayton’s lips parted, enjoying the flex of muscles.

 

“Like what you see?” Vann asked, delivering a cocky grin as he seductively licked his lower lip. “Let’s get back in bed—”
Drayton threw his head back and laughed. “You’re still persistent as hell. C’mon. I want to show you something.”

 

“I want to show you something too.”

 

“This is important.” Drayton crossed his arms. “We can skim the other rooms but there’s one that’s special. It’s…yours.”

 

Vann sobered. “You’ve given me enough to cover every event for the rest of my life and then some. I don’t want—”
“It’s also for me. I’ll watch you while you use the room.”

 

“Hmm.” Vann pursed his lips. “Okay, you’ve got my attention.”
After a little more bargaining, Drayton finally lured Vann out of the bedroom and down the hallway. He opened the door to his office and stepped inside. “This is the room I’m usually in when I’m here.”
“Not anymore.”
He chuckled as they exited the office. They walked down the hall to the room he’d had converted into a gym.
“Damn, this is nice.” Vann checked the different weight options and looked at each of the machines.
“You’ve got everything here for all types of routines. And if you don’t like the view, you’ve got a TV.”
“The view’s beautiful.”

 

“Whatever we need to change out or add, we’ve still got space. I do a lot of thinking while I’m on the treadmill, so we’re not getting rid of that.”

 

Vann chuckled. “Okay.” He walked over to Drayton and leaned in for a slow kiss.
“Mmm. What was that for?”
“Is this the room I’ll use while you watch me? I promise I’ll make you sweat too.” 
Jaime Reese is the alter ego of an artist who loves the creative process of writing, just not about herself. Fiction is far more interesting. She has a weakness for broken, misunderstood heroes and feels everyone deserves a chance at love and life. An avid fan of a happy ending, she believes those endings acquired with a little difficulty are more cherished.

Flag:
She literally broke me. Now she needs help. She won’t know it’s me before it’s too late.
Can I pass the opportunity up? No. I should do the decent thing, and let one of the others go, but the need to hurt her like she did me is too deep.
But first, I’ll make sure no one else dies because of her.
Truth comes out, but I’m not sure what to believe. Is revenge what I really want? Because right now, everything in me is reaching for HER.
All I can do is try to protect my heart while I search for a killer who suddenly has us both in his sights.
Azia:
The man they sent used to be someone I loved, and I nearly died when he left me. Can I trust him to stop whoever is killing people I care for? I don’t have a choice, because no one else can, or will, do it. I can’t let another of my friends die.
Anger and bitterness have changed him, but bits of the real Flag show through at unexpected times. I miss him more than ever, but I won’t survive losing him again.
Why do I wish things could be different, after all this time?

4 Stars
Wrapped Up In You is another great, action packed read from Aden Lowe! He definitely knows how to mix action and romance, and add in great characters that you can’t help but fall for. I loved Flag and Azia’s story – definitely a great addition to this series.
Flag and Azia were best friends throughout high school even though they were the outcasts. They had plans for their future together too, join the military and then get married. But that’s not what happened at all! Azia things Flag was killed and Flag believes Azia just left him behind. Both still carry that pain. One day Flag receives a call for a job from a woman whose friends are all dying in mysterious ways. This call brings Flag and Azia back together.
These two certainly don’t have a sweet reunion and it’s not easy for either of them. There is still so much pain but as they work through Azia’s situation with the possible serial killer they work through some of their own past hurts as well. It’s pretty easy to tell though that these two belong together, they still love each other and always have.
I definitely enjoyed their journey, a great mix of suspense and hot romance as well as some good laughs. Flag is tough and hard but definitely has a great heart. Azia is sweet and loveable, this is a couple you root for. I loved seeing these two come back together, softening to each other and remembering the connection they had. It was especially great to see Flag fall for her all over again and realize this was a life worth fighting for. Overall, another great read from Aden Lowe that had me falling in love and had me guessing about the killer until the very end! I’m already looking forward to whatever comes next from Aden!

Release Blitz & GIVEAWAY: Once Call Away by Felice Stevens

Title: One Call Away
Author: Felice Stevens
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: April 28, 2017
Blurb
When a brutal attack from a jealous competitor
leaves Noah Strauss, darling of the modeling world, physically scarred and
emotionally damaged, he quits the runway to become a psychologist. Using his
contacts from his time in the spotlight, he creates One Call Away, a radio show
dedicated to gay men looking for love, advice or someone to talk to. But with
secrets of his own and a mother who refuses to understand the career path he’s
chosen, the one person Noah can’t seem to help is himself.

On a drunken dare from the senior partner’s grandson, Oren Leavitt calls Noah’s
radio show, pretending to be gay. Only Oren isn’t certain if he’s pretending.
He’s left his strict Orthodox Jewish upbringing behind, but the guilt remains.
Guilt that his actions have prevented his sister from finding a husband and
guilt that he’s failed his parents. Talking to “Dr. Noah” helps, and
as he finds himself calling the man again and again, he knows he must be
honest. But Oren is unsure if he’s lying to Noah or himself.

For Noah, trust is paramount; he’s been deceived in his personal and
professional life and while he desperately wants to help Oren, he also finds
himself falling for the sweet and tortured man. Oren is trapped: he risks
losing his job and more importantly the love and security of his family but
knows he can’t hide if if wants to be with Noah. When unresolved heartaches
from the past rise up to control the present, Noah and Oren discover that love
often comes from the most unexpected places, and sometimes a call for help not
only saves a life, it can be a new and beautiful beginning.

Oh this story is just beautiful! Felice Stevens has a remarkable ability to write stories and characters that just go straight to the heart and she has most definitely done it again with One Call Away! Noah and Oren just *sigh* my heart!
Noah and Oren will take you on an emotional journey of self discovery and love! What starts out as a phone call becomes friendship and finally everything! There is so much emotion and feeling in this story that you can feel it right along with these two. Despite having professional success both of these men so lonely and fragile, but once they find each other it truly changes their lives.
I loved the journey with these two, the connection they shared and the chemistry too! Noah and Oren grow together and heal themselves along the way. This is definitely one of those stories where you know these characters were just meant to be, two halves coming together to finally be whole. I pretty much feel like picking up a book by Felice Stevens is going to give me all the feels and leave my heart ridiculously happy and One Call Away certainly did all of that! This was another don’t miss read!

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, my characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love.I live in New York City with my husband and two children and hopefully soon a cat of my own. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

Cover: Meredith Russell

Length: 54,000 words

Blurb

An actor on possession charges, hell bent on destroying his own life meets a man who quietly works to make the world a better place.


Jacob Riley is a typical Hollywood former child star with issues. He has already done prison time and at the age of twenty-six has been arrested again.

Ethan Myers is the owner and manager of Macs, an education center providing teaching and learning to local low income families. Losing his partner to cancer leaves him lost and alone and he buries himself in his work to start to mend his broken heart.

Sparks fly when Jacob has to complete his community service at Macs. Their relationship grows against a background of disenfranchised street gang members, arson, the Oscars, and despite their prejudices.


Can Jacob Riley be saved?

4 Stars

Moments is one of those books that is an easy read, a fun story to fall into and fall in love with. Ethan is such a wonderful character and I absolutely loved him right from the start! Jacob on the other hand isn’t quite so easy to love in the beginning, but he definitely gets there!

Jacob starts off as a bit of a cliche – the entitled actor with substance abuse issues, blames everyone else for his problems. He’s not the most loveable guy when we meet him. He’s faced with additional prison time but his father steps in and works a deal where he does community service at an adult education center called Macs. For Jacob Macs is a way out of trouble but for Ethan it’s everything. It’s in memory of his partner who passed away, someone who Ethan still grieves for and misses terribly. Ethan works hard to provide a safe, helpful place and he won’t let Jacob distract from that work.

Jacob and Ethan definitely don’t get along right away, they seriously butt heads, but quickly the two men warm a bit to each other and there’s a respect and friendship. Jacob sees the work done at Macs and finds himself becoming a part of it, learning about himself and healing too. Ethan sees that as well and the two men find a connection together.

For me, this was a story about redemption and worth, for both men. Jacob finally growing beyond his entitled, spoiled mentality and Ethan embracing the future and letting someone in again. I loved seeing these two heal together and learn to love each other. Sure they hit some bumps, and RJ Scott throws in a little angst at the end, but it’s meaningful to this story and proves just how much Jacob and Ethan really do love each other. Another great read from RJ Scott!

Review Tour & GIVEAWAY: Imagines by N.R. Walker

 

Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK

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

Cover: Harper By Design


Blurb

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.

4.5 Stars

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!

Author Bio

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…
