Book of the Week: Farm Fresh by Posy Roberts #Review

Author: Posy Roberts
Publication Date: January 28, 2015
Publisher: Labyrinth Bound Press
Farm Fresh: Naked Organics book 1
Length: 204 pages


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.


WOW! This was breathtaking, amazing, thrilling, freeing! I’m trying to think of all the words to describe it but It will fall flat. If this book is any indication, this will be one heck of a series.
This story takes place mostly on a commune, Kaleidoscope Gardens. They are people who live free in every way. They live, love, and breathe. It’s so refreshing. Now, for someone like me it would be terrifying. I truly connected with Jude in how he saw everything the first time. I loved how we followed the tour of the place with him and really felt the shock and yes even the terror of living with people who live open. When I say open I mean sexually.
The story is told MOSTLY in Hudson and Jude’s POV but you also get Charlie and Leo’s POV’s too. Normally, that would irritate me because I don’t like many POV’s in one story. However, this did no such thing. It made complete sense. It perfected the story. Because Charlie, Leo, Jude, and Hudson are like one organism in a sense. They share a house… and everything in it.
Jude’s past is horrifying and heartbreaking. It’s no wonder he has so many mental hang ups over sex. And Hudson doesn’t have it that easy either. So many of these people in this commune have suffered a past that has left them scarred. Coming to Kaleidoscope Garden’s is a salve for them.
This it truly and outstanding story. I carried my kindle everywhere with me…. All day. I refused to do anything until I finished. And then, I wanted more. More of these fascinating characters and this amazing place.
Posy Roberts has created a world of brilliance. I can’t wait to read more of this series. This is a must read! A huge bravo to Posy!!!
