BlurbImagines 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.
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
Imagines is the second book in the Imago series, and we reunite with Lawson and Jack six months after they first met. Their relationship is still going strong, and these two immediately gave me back the warm fuzzies! Jack wants Lawson to move in, but as far as Lawson is concerned, it will happen eventually, it is inevitable, so why rush it? They decide to take a holiday together, and it is as they are sorting out the details of where they would like to go, that Lawson receives an email regarding work, and they decide to kill two birds with one stone.
I won't say anymore about the story as I don't want to spoil it. All I will say is that these complement each other in every way. Jack is the cheese to Lawson's crackers, you just can't imagine one without the other. Their families are absolutely perfect for both of them too. There is some angst in this one, that had my heart pounding just that little bit harder, but I am more than happy with the ending and the epilogue that came after.
Exceptionally well written, this book will grip and delight as you follow these two men. There were no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, and the whole book was a warm fuzzy-fest of goodness! Absolutely loved it, most definitely recommend it; but now, if you will excuse me, I'm off to read Butterfly Hunter by Julie Bozza, as recommended by N.R. Walker in the special mention at the end.

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…
