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.
4 out of 5 (very good)
Imago is the first book in a new series by N.R. Walker. It tells the story of Lawson, Nerd Supreme who knows what he is talking about! He is extremely intelligent (genius level) but won't take any nonsense and play the 'games' that other professors do to move on or up. He sees Jack on a flight to Tasmania, but immediately assumes that Jack would not be interested in him. Of course, we know that is wrong, so sit back, relax and enjoy, as these two get together.
The attraction between these two is instantaneous, but at the same time, they keep it slow between them. Their "courtship" (and yes, I use that word deliberately) is quaint and old-fashioned, in all the best meanings of the words. They get to know each other before moving further into each other. The fact that they can both hold an intelligent conversation, and have similar interests, are just added bonuses.
This is a sweet yet saucy story, with plenty of action, and low angst. It is very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. This is another book by N.R. Walker that I would have no hesitation in recommending.

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 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...
