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 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.

I really had no idea what this story was about but because I love everything this author writes I was more than happy to dig in without even reading the blurb however now that I’ve read the story that cover is seriously perfect. Love, Bow ties and Butterflies Yes please!
We follow Lawson and Jack who meet after plane ride back to Jack’s home state. To say that first impressions didn’t go well is putting it mildly. At least where Lawson is concerned, but thankfully because of an error with a rental car company things quickly go from zero to “have dinner with me” in a relatively short time frame. And thus starts this wonderful journey of two men who never knew what they were missing until they gave each other a chance.
Lawson and Jack are such easy going characters I really couldn’t help but fall in love with them. I really loved the dynamics between these two guys. From the moment they had a conversation it was lust at first sight and yes it was pretty much insta love but it worked for them. They just fit together. There wasn’t any games, no mixed messages, no miscommunication, their personalities just meshed so well together.
All the qualities that made Lawson socially awkward, the way he spoke, the fact that he didn’t have a filter, said what needed to be said, the way he dressed, his job, are the exact things that attracted Jack to him. Lawson’s prim and proper speech, the way he carries himself and the fact that he wore bowties had Jack completely enamored to him. Nothing sexier to him than listening to this man speak of his work and his passion no matter how nerdy it made him sound. Where most people outside of Lawson’s employment would make assumptions or make fun of him, Jack was completely bewitched. These men were absolutely adorable together.
Lawson is this sexy, nerdy guy who marches to his own beat. He really doesn’t fit the mold. He’s not self-conscious at all, in fact , I loved that he was this proper speaking, nerdy guy who wasn’t afraid to take chances and go after what he wanted. I really loved that when he really let loose during those hot and steamy moments he really showed another side to the proper put together guy he normally is.
Jack was just amazing too. The story focuses on these two guys working side by side doing their jobs but also pretty much spending every waking moment together for the short time they have while Lawson is there for work. I loved all the moments they shared together, their dates, their talks, the tender moments. Everything was just so perfect, sweet and honest.
This story is super cute with no angst, it’s so sweet with so much adoration that it will leave you smiling. One that any N.R. Walker fan will love.
