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 is the beautiful,sweet and captivating continuation of Jack and Lawson’s story. They have been together for six months and the story tells the journey of their love and how they grow together as a couple and find their happily every after.

Jack and Lawson are in love and they are happy. They are secure in their relationship and is ready to take the next step forward. Lawson’s work with Tillman Cooper is progressing really well and that’s when he is presented with a new opportunity to work with Piers Bonfils. This story is about how they navigate their relationship amidst the new opportunities and find their forever. I loved Jack and Lawson in this book, in fact I have grown to love them more. They are as adorable as in the first book. One of the best part of the book is that there is almost no angst and the mature way Jack and Lawson handle things. They are pretty straight forward and open about what they want. I loved that the author characterized them that way. This facet of theirs made the story really enjoyable. Jack and Lawson are a couple who are secure and so sure of their love and relationship that it transcends through out the story and made me fall in love with their love. I also loved all the new characters introduced in this book. They all contributed to the story really well and the familiar faces from the first book too made appearances. This book was a sweet and truly beautiful read.

Imagines is the beautiful, very well captured and etched out sequel to Imago, one which is bound to make you fall in love with Jack and Lawson more. Highly Recommended.
