"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Lawson catches Jack's eye from the very beginning. Jack finds Lawson's no-nonsense confidence and bow-tie wearing nerd-dome sexy. Lawson isn't quite sure what to make of Jack at first (other than can't-stop-himself-from-looking handsome) but he quickly realizes that Jack is not only sincere in his interest, but quite earnest as well. Their dates are sweet, with lots of heated kissing, and lots of laughter. They are sizzling together, but the joy and caring they have for each other is wonderful. Jack's butterfly kisses made me have OMG-Awww moments in my head, and this-- "the butterflies he felt when he saw me had morphed into love... The most remarkable metamorphosis." Add to that intrepid Rosemary, and voila, perfection. (Even down to the title and book cover).
I'll freely admit I'm a bit of a fangirl for N.R. Walker, particularly after her Spencer Cohen series last year. She created one of probably two of my favorite contemporary romance characters ever in Spencer and his beau, Andrew. They were absolutely perfect as their own 'person' and together they were a magical couple. She's on the way to duplicating that feeling with Imago and Lawson and Jack.
Lawson and Jack couldn't be any more different from the other but they're also very similar in many ways in their personalities, traits, and what motivates them. Granted, we've just scratched the surface with book one in the series and these two are going grab your heartstrings and tug on them. Particularly Lawson, who's a bit awkward yet sexy and he totally knows what he wants and likes but then falls back into that adorkably genius mode which makes him endearing. Jack is rugged and earthy but he knows what he wants and likes..and his radar is firmly turned on Lawson. While it's a bit of insta-love with these two characters as the events take place over a seven day timeframe, it's really not typical insta-love. There's a seriously connection with these two and they aren't skirting around reality. From their first date they're actively making that connection stronger by talking and learning about the other, what makes each other work and their interests, etc. It's not just sex and *BANG* they're in love.
There is a surrounding story with Lawson's research which causes them to be around each other constantly. This facilitates their attraction and the deepening connection between them. Overall though there isn't angst driving their story, at least not in this book, it's all about romance and Lawson's reason for being in Tasmania. This story didn't need angst or a catalyst to make them fall in love, their attraction from the start drove Imago to the conclusion of the first book.
Literally Imago is a feel good, sweet and super sexy romance with a strong story surrounding Lawson and Jack. The characters, including the few secondary characters they meet, are fully developed and multi-dimensional. While yes the story takes place in seven days, it does not feel rushed and is told with even pacing, bits of action, and lots of details and dialogue. This is a well crafted romance that's going to bring you back for the next installment and even future books from this author.
I highly recommend this book for fans of this author but also anyone that's looking for a feel good, sweet, yet sexy story with a bow-tie wearing lepidopterist and a hunky Park Ranger.
Basically, everything about the book was fine, but I never really got the feels. This is my first time reading this author so I don't know how it compares to her other books
Told from a dual POV, Imago is a sweet, no angst, passionate whirlwind romance.
The romance happens quickly at just under a week of knowing one another, but at the same time it's pleasantly paced with Jack and Lawson getting to know one another well.
There was a lot to love about the story: the characters, Rosemary the dog, the way Walker parcels out information so the reader learns but isn't bored by the intake of new knowledge.
My only complaint with the story is the final chapter skips ahead and the reader is told of experiences that I would have absolutely preferred to have gotten to "witness" rather than just be told about. I felt a bit cheated, to be honest, but only because I love the characters so much and wanted more.
Other than that I really enjoyed this delightful romance and am absolutely looking forward to book two!

It was also quite different with all the butterflies details. The end left me with a big smile on my face.Read more
