Book Review: Imago by N.R. Walker
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 realizes. 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.
I really enjoyed this story! N.R. Walker has a wonderful knack for creating characters that are not only likeable, but also complex and interesting. Lawson, in all of his nerdy genius, still exhibited a wealth of emotions, both good and bad, that readers typically don't expect from introverted and shy characters. I also loved how Jack was so enamored by everything about Lawson, but it wasn't purely physical. He was interested in his mind as well. These are the type of multi-dimensional characters that I appreciate and enjoy most in fiction.
All in all, this is a very fun, uncomplicated romance, and I can't wait to read the sequel!
I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided my honest review.
