Review Tour | Imagines (Imago #2) by NR Walker | #Review #MMRomance #Butterflies #Romance

Title: Imagines
Series: Imago #2
Author: N R Walker
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: 8 April 2017


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.

Imago (Book #1)


The second book in the Imago series (or maybe it’s a duet?) and this book starts six months after the last book ended.

Jack and Lawson are still very much together but still living apart. Each knows though they are on the precipice of taking that next step of meeting the parents, moving in together and maybe more? Jack is all for this now but Lawson is still hesitant to take that step. When Lawson gets another job request that could be a major step in his career the two combine a holiday along with Lawson’s work in Queensland. This time it’s another variety of butterfly that is under threat. Can Lawson save the day again?

This book runs with the same gorgeous and sweet romance of Jack and Lawson. I kid you not these two are just so wonderful together. The connection between them is undoubtable and a joy to read. There is little angst or frustration to their love but the darker side of the story comes in an outside threat and a brush with danger on a night time expedition. Jack is always there to rescue his man!

The attention to detail and the research was amazing and you can see the amount of work this author puts into her stories. I’m not a lover of butterflies and this strange fear I have was one of the reasons it put me off wanting to read but even I came to respect and adore Lawson’s work. Clever stuff.

This was so romantic and lush and had me swooning again with the outpouring of love and devotion between these two sweet men. For me though the last part of the book moved this from a four star to a five star read as it was so heart pounding and emotional. I had a big beaming smile on my face as it came to that perfect ending. I was so sad to leave Jack and Lawson and cute as pie Rosemary in their lovely home. I just wanted to stay there forever. Naw, so blissful. Five Stars

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.
