Book Review: Red Dirt Imago (Red Dirt, #4.5 / Imago, #2.5) – N.R. Walker

Date of Publication: April 20, 2017
Publisher: BlueHeart Press
Genre & Theme: LGBT, MM, Romance
ASIN: B0724ZFHRT
Characters: Charlie Sutton, Travis Craig, Jack Brighton, Lawson Gale

Blurb:When Charlie Sutton’s neighbour Greg is notified by the Queensland government that they intend to run a pipeline through his property, Charlie vows to help him fight it. Then Travis remembers seeing butterflies at the creek near their joining fence line – the same butterflies they couldn’t find in any Australian butterfly book. Hopeful this might be their only chance to stop the development, they seek the help of a specialist.

Lawson Brighton-Gale receives an email request to identify a butterfly in the Outback, only to discover it’s not an Australian butterfly at all. But that’s not all he discovers. The name on the request is familiar to Jack. An old friend from his university days, who also happened to be his old friend with benefits, Charlie Sutton.

Years ago, two out-of-towners met at the University of Sydney. Both studying environmental sciences, both hundreds of miles from home, and both finding their worlds open to new experiences, they fell into bed together. Meeting again after all this time, in front of Lawson and Travis, won’t be awkward at all, right?

Lawson and Jack’s trip to Sutton Station certainly doesn’t go to plan, and what they take back to Tasmania isn’t just butterflies, but a cocoon of possibilities.

Red Dirt Imago is our cutesie little return to the very much beloved Red Dirt Heart Series and this time, with Lawson and Jack from the author’s Imago series (or the other way around).

Reading about Charlie and Travis again makes me a bit melancholic because I absolutely loved their story and the timeline of this story is in the past since we all know that their daughter grew up to be a beautiful strong-willed woman.

I can absolutely relate with both Lawson and Travis here. No matter how mature we think we are in these situations – meeting your former lover and their current lover – though in this instance, former sex buddies, there’s still a tinge of something that will make us feel a bit jealous I guess…I think that’s what makes us human. That’s what’s make Lawson and Travis more realistic in a way.

This is a cutesie little gift from the author for the fans of both series and that super cute surprise at the end is just too adorbs! This is highly recommended for those who are missing Travis and Charlie!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

About The Author
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…

How is Chanel Olive Thomas in Miss Supranational 2017?

I know that everyone’s focused on Miss Universe Philippines Rachel Peters and her quest to win the fourth Miss Universe crown for the country in Las Vegas but let’s also take a peak at Chanel Olive Thomas who’s currently in the spa city resort of Krynca Zdroj in Poland for the 9th edition of this very young, European-based pageant where our very own Mutya Datul became the very first Asian and Filipino to win the title.

It looks like she’s enjoying her stint in Poland so far…

Here she is having fun in the snow with her room mate Jenny Kim of Korea.

With her Asian sisters in the competition.

The X Factor UK 2017 – Live Shows Week 4 Prize Fight – Rak-Su vs Grace Davies #XFactor

Again, it’s Grace vs Rak-Su – two of the frontrunners of this series.

I loved both song. Mona Lisa by Rak-Su is pop perfection whilst Grace’s Hesitate is a dance-club hit waiting to happen!

Winner: Rak-Su

The X Factor UK 2017 – 4th Week Live Show 8 Recap – Girls and Overs Categories #XFactor

Out of all the acts who performed last night, the two acts who got the lowest number of votes were the weakest performances wise.

Rai-Elle’s performance of Mr. Big Stuff was well-received enough by the judges; said it was her beat vocal performance but people need to vote for her!

Kevin took on a big risk with this Song and I thought he did pretty well here. The consensus is that it was great but it wasn’t his best performance to date. Oh, and he’s real and a very nice person too.

Matt is my biggest spoiler for the title. I mean, he’s already in my top 3 since the very beginning but his performance of Alicia Keys’ most iconic song is just up there.

The judges thought that vocally, this was his best performance yet. And he’s awfully charming as well.

This was just painful to watch and what’s even more painful is Louis pointing out the obvious. Ugh. Poor Holly.

Grace Davies singing an original is always a joy to watch! I’ve to agree with Sharon – this was a fantastic song (called ‘Hesitate’) and it was nice seeing Grace in her element and enjoying herself onstage.

Eliminated: Rai-Elle and Holly

The X Factor UK 2017 – 4th Week Live Show 7 Recap – Groups & Boys Categories #XFactor

The theme this week is Crazy in Love so it’s clearly all about being in love and uhm, being crazy hahaha while the prize of the winning act this week is that he/she/they will get to record their own song with Ali Tamposi (who works with the likes of Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson and many more).

For the 7th live show of the series, the Boys and the Groups battled it out with two acts leaving last night. And boy was it a shocker! I mean, I expected that particular act to get the boot but the other act’s elimination was way surprising! I really thought they’re in it to win it!

Sam Black – Oops by Little Mix

He was still pitchy and he’s obviously the weakest in the competition. I don’t know what Louis was thinking when he let him sing this song! I agree with Simon, the song choice was horrible.

Simon: That’s what I call a prom cocktail. Everything that happens around you has been done by other people.
Nicole: It was the best performance you’ve ever done so far.
Sharon: I’ve never see you JUST YOU up there. Same comment as Simon.
Louis: You’re still here so obviously people like you. (NOT, ANYMORE Louis)

Sean and Conor Price – Issues by Julia Michaels
They didn’t have their guitar this week! I absolutely loved this song and I thought Conor totally killed it. I loved them and was sad that their stint was cut short. What is wrong with the Brits???

Louis loved it!
Sharon: Excellent song choice! This is where you shine!
Nicole: Conor’s voice was amazing! I still think you guys are better than that.
Simon: The competition won’t be the same without you boys. 😦

The Cutkelvins – Saved Me from Myself (Original)
We’re finally hearing the boys taking center stage! This was just an A-OK song for me! I think they really did deserved to stay with this performance.

Louis: I think this was a big risk and it totally paid off!
Sharon: A really, really, great song! It was fantatic!
Nicole: The Cutkelvins has arrived!
Simon: It tells me about who you are as people. I think it’s gonna pay off.

Lloyd Macey – From This Moment by Shania Twain.
I didn’t like this and thought this was his worst performance in the show.

Simon: You are a really good singer. This was great but it didn’t make me emotional.
Nicole: You have such a beautiful instrument.
Sharon: There’s always room for somebody like you in the industry.
Louis: You have the most amazing pure recording voice.

Rak-Su – Mona Lisa (Original)
This guys are ready to go out there! They’re so freaking good! And this original song is so freaking good!

Louis: Every week you’re bringing it!
Sharon: (drop mic) You are guys are unbelievable!
Nicole: This country has fallen in love with Rak-Su.
Simon: There is so much talent in this country and you are showing that.

Rak-Su got the highest votes making them last night’s champion!

Eliminated: Sam Black & Sean and Conor Price

Here’s what brothers Sean and Conor has to say about their stint in the show:

GENUINELY so grateful to everyone that has voted for us and continued to support us!❌❤️Week 4 is going to come fast! Back to work!!🙌🏼
