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.

Imagines by N.R. Walker is the follow up to Imago. It takes place six weeks after the end of the first one. Jack and Lawson are very much in love and moving forward into their future. The book starts with them going on a working vacation and what ensues is sweet as pie love story.

My highlights:

-Jack & Lawson. They’re still adorable and reading their story made me smile- it’s impossible not to. They’re perfectly suited for each other. Their respect and adoration for one another were evident with every action.

-Zero relationship angst. There was a bit of anxiety, but it was treated without any unnecessary, contrived drama.

-Dual POV. I can’t convey into words how happy I am that in this series we got both POVs.

-The cameos that were made by someone’s family members were delightful. 😉

-The pace of the story was smooth and steady.

-Steam *wink, wink*

-And that deleted scene. Please be sure to read it!

N.R. Walker does an outstanding job when it comes to these sweet, low angst romances. She manages to keep readers captivated and coming back for more. Imagines was the perfect escape from the outside world. 5 Stars ♥
