Imago by N.R. Walker Blog Tour

Nerdy, introverted genius lepidopterist, Lawson Gale, is an expert on butterflies. He finds himself in a small town in Tasmania on a quest from an old professor to find an elusive species that may or may not even exist.

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 bow ties, 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, bow ties, and butterflies.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I was delighted to be given the opportunity to review this book – and very happy to see that it is the first in a new series.

This is a really cute and very sexy romance set in Tasmania. The lead characters are very different physically, and to an extent academically, but the chemistry between them is real. Lawson is, however, cautious by nature and he wants to take it slow – the buildup in this relationship is super sexy for that very reason. Jack will do whatever Lawson wants, as he is totally smitten.

The drama is supplied by nature and only serves to cement the rightness of these men together. We get the story from both their viewpoints, and unusually both men talk about the other much more than they do about themselves when they have the floor. It was an interesting writing device that took a little while to get into, but was fascinating once I had.

Thank you Ms. Walker, a great start to a new series; I am looking forward to more!

So this is sweet and fluffy and happy insta-love, but it also transported me across the world and gave me insight into a whole new world of butterfly science. The very rational science and conservation aspects of this story balanced a romance that would otherwise have been just a little bit too sweet for me.

Jack and Lawson are both complete opposites and great complements for each other. The rugged wildlife officer and the geeky scientist work perfectly from the start. The series of perfect dates was slightly nauseating, but the two socially awkward men offered a little realism to temper the fairy tale.

Tasmania is a completely new place for me and the author really breathes life into both the small town community Jack lives in and the National Parks he works to protect. The wild beauty of the place just jumps off the page – I really want to visit now!

I really enjoyed this story. I learned a great deal and I really liked both Jack and Lawson. For me, Jack’s dog Rosemary really steals the story and I totally fell in love with her.

What a sweet, loving book. Nerdy guy, hot guy, bow ties, and off-the-chart chemistry. Such a good book, good story, and great characters. I loved Lawson and his bowties. Jack and his enthusiasm when it came to Lawson was great, he thought the sun rose and set with Lawson and I loved that about Jack. There was a tad bit of angst, but nothing that made you want to scream or throw your book out a window. I was fascinated by Lawson and how he came out of his shell around Jack. The one upping each date was great as well. Sweet book and I can’t wait to see what will be in the next book.

I loved Imago. It is a completely uncomplicated romance. Lawson is a butterfly expert and is only in Tasmania for a week to do research. Jack is the local Parks and Wildlife officer. Lawson is an awkward genius and Jack is an outdoorsy, hunky popular guy. They bond over a shared love of conservation and every night they go on a date, each one better than the last.

This is a simple romance with a pop of excitement just at the right time. As I watched Jack and Lawson fall in love with each other I fell in love with them. Fabulous story. I'm going to be reading more of N.R. Walker's books as soon as I can.

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…
