Naked Origins ~ Hudson

Naked Organics #0.5*

Hudson’s life is forever changed when his parents discover he’s gay. He has no idea where he’ll end up, just that he has to run to be safe.

Naked OriginsHudson Oliva didn’t expect the world to end with the new millennium, but his life did change forever on that New Year’s Eve. After his religious parents walk in on him with Zac in his bed, Hudson is sent to conversion therapy. The parents he returns home to after being cured aren’t the same people he’s known his entire life. They’re cold and withdrawn.

In order to survive, Hudson becomes an expert at lying while working hard to be the perfect son, yet his parents remain emotionally distant. He’s sure the pray-away-the-gay camp broke something inside him along with tearing his family apart. When his parents discover Hudson has continued seeing Zac for years, they demand he go back to the camp. Hudson has no choice but to run. Somehow he has to find a safe place, but he has to get out of Florida first.

*This is not a romance. This is a character study looking deeper into who Hudson is, what shaped him, why he escaped home, and how he ended up at Kaleidoscope Gardens. Warning: themes of abuse.

Jude moves in, however his sexual hang-ups left over from past abuse make it hard to adjust. He’s living among people who have sex freely and with multiple partners. When Jude finally loosens up, Hudson is flooded with emotions for this reserved man. 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.

If he wants a chance at a stable future with Jude, he has to tell him the truth about his feelings, even if it ruins the harmony he’s tried so hard to preserve.
