Posy Roberts

Jude Garrity visits the farmers market every Saturday. As an environmental engineering student, he’s curious about living off the grid and sustainable agriculture.

And one particular farmer.

Hudson Oliva has worked hard to support his commune, where queer people live without fear of harm or retribution. When Jude asks pointed questions about living there, Hudson realizes he needs to be honest about his home. Few people know what the farm is actually about, but Jude is insistent.

Jude moves to Kaleidoscope Gardens, however, his sexual hang-ups make it hard to adjust. He’s an uptight virgin living among people who have sex freely and with multiple partners. When Jude finally loosens up, Hudson is flooded with emotions. Falling for Jude wasn’t part of Hudson’s life plan. But when vindictive rumors about the commune begin to spread, love might be all he has left.

Excerpt

“You wanted to know where I’m from,” Hudson said. Jude nodded but remained tight-lipped. “I grew up north of Miami in a small city. I couldn’t wait to get out, so I tried to hitch a ride to Seattle. Didn’t get that far.”

“How far did you get?” Jude looked surprised as he asked, so Hudson reached out and pressed his palm to the center of Jude’s chest.

“About five miles away. I’ve been here ever since.”

“What made you run? I mean… maybe that’s too personal.”

Hudson coasted his hand over the slight swell of Jude’s pec and thumbed over his nipple, which stood at attention, pert and flushed, like his lips and cheeks. It was a good color on him.

“My parents sent me away to one of those ‘pray away the gay’ places, which obviously didn’t work, but it probably saved my life since my mom had to haul Papi off me when she told him why I needed to go there. He had so much pride, and having a gay son wasn’t something he could live with. It was as if me being gay made him gay. I was accosted by religion and hatred for who I was from that day until I left, so I became an expert at being secretive and learned to lie through my teeth while living with them. My eighteenth birthday Papi and I fought, and I ended up with another black eye. I packed a bag and snuck out of the house while they were sleeping.”

“Did they call the cops or anything?”

Hudson shook his head and knew his smile was pathetic. He still held hope he and his father could reconcile. He knew Papi would be proud of him and what he’d accomplished on the commune. “I left a note and eventually let them know my address, but in all the years, I’ve gotten one letter.”

“I’ve talked to my parents twice since I left, and both times left me feeling shredded inside.”

“I’m sorry.” Hudson scooted closer and pulled Jude into a tight embrace. The feel of Jude’s warm skin against his own had Hudson’s body responding in no time flat. He kissed Jude’s neck and the sharp line of his jaw. He thrust his fingers into Jude’s spun-gold hair and drew their mouths together.

Jude moved his lips, pressing chaste kisses to Hudson’s, and then he snaked his arm between their bodies. Jude splayed his fingers across Hudson’s chest and pushed him away. He hung his head, looking down at the mattress in what appeared to be shame.

Hudson took the sting out of the rejection by thumbing over Jude’s bottom lip, shiny with saliva. “You have a delectable mouth, like it’s made for kissing.”

Jude laughed. “So do you.” Then he bit his lip and made brief eye contact before scooting back a few inches.

Review: I have only read one or two books by this author but I was not sure what to expect from it. Now I was interested in reading it, but once I started I realized my mistake. I don’t care for open relationships and see no point in it. I had trouble getting into this story and keeping my attention in it.

Jude studies environmental engineering and he is interested in those who live different types of lives. Especially ones like a communal farm. He is very interested in Hudson and finds out that the commune is a very sexual one. It is a refuge of some sort for gay residents who are not afraid of being naked or constricted relationships. He has suffered emotional abuse in the past and has homophobic parents. So when he meets Hudson he is starting to feel things.

Hudson shares a home with two other men and they are very sexually active. There is no love between them; however it might just be starting with Jude. Now with this story my attention was not caught like it should have but that doesn’t have anything to do with the way the story was told. I don’t much care for the sexual activities among multiple partners, nor the religious tone to it so I was not as attentive to this story.

It wasn’t even really two, three or even four men having sex, but this commune opened to all sorts of different sexual habits. Such as m/m, f/f, ménage’s, exhibitionist, naked people and so on. The fact that Jude was not comfortable with it was something that pulled at me. You have a kid with no sexual experience thrown in to a world that is based on it, makes it not real for me.

Hudson has some secrets that Jude seems to bring out. Jude has his problems and I just don’t see how bringing others in helps a relationship. The other characters that were with them, it makes for a fun read though. It was fully developed and had a lot of meat to it. The plot was excellently told and there were the perfect amount of feelings through it all. It was told with a fast pace to it but the words just flowed perfectly.

Now to me the ending seemed off. There was a lot of room left over for a different conclusion to me. I was a bit disappointed in this story and am not sure if I want to read the next book. Like I said I am not into the open relationships. I don’t mind a relationship that involves two, three or even four men but if they are not serious in it then I lose interest really fast. So over all it is a good story but it was not for me.

  1. Well, I’m not really a nature sort of person, but it would have to be crops because the whole poo aspect of animals turns me off

  2. Congratulations on the new release. My thing would be animals, certainly. Probably horses…. I just love them!

  3. Thank you for the review. I agree on open relationships. It is different if it is multiple partners and they are committed to the group. Congratulations to the author for the release. I would have to raise animals and for the purpose of their fur/fleece etc – something where no killing is involved, just shearing or brushing to obtain the raw materials to turn into yarn.
