BOOK EXCERPT: Book 1 of "The Positions of Love" is now available!

By J.M. Snyder

The start of a new series!

When Matt diLorenzo gives his lover, Vic Braunson, a copy of the Kama
Sutra for Gay Men as a Christmas gift, they find it doubles as a handy
reference guide to Vic’s super powers. All they have to do is test out
the positions to see which one gives him what ability…

Now available from Amber Allure

Matt and Vic have been living together almost a year now, and this is
their first Christmas. Not a big fan of the holiday, Vic is unsure
what to buy his lover. Matt gives him two guidelines to go by—the gift
must be under $50, and must be something sexual, because Vic has some
time off during the holidays and Matt plans to spend that time together.

When Vic’s boss asks him to play Santa at the company Christmas party,
Vic wants to say “no.” But the enticement of more time off after
Christmas—time he’ll be able to spend with Matt—sweetens the deal.
It’s shaping up to be a wonderful holiday season after all…if he can
only find the perfect present for his lover.

This would be their first Christmas together. Last year this time they
had been friends, Matt hesitant to trust Vic more and Vic biding his
time until Matt let him in. Even then, they had been moving toward a
deeper relationship, one they didn’t consummate until after midnight
on New Year’s Day. Three months later, the day after his thirty-fifth
birthday, Matt announced he was moving into Vic’s apartment. They had
been inseparable since.

Though he’s likely to leave me if I fuck up Christmas. The thought
turned Vic’s stomach, and he craned his neck, trying to look beyond
the cars ahead of him to see what the problem was. In the left hand
lane, traffic moved at a sluggish pace, but the cars in front of Vic
didn’t even budge. If only I were over there …

A nasty jolt shook him. For a second, Vic thought maybe he’d been
rear-ended-his whole body surged forward as if jerked ahead. As the
windshield rushed at him, he threw his hands in front of his face,
shielding it. Motherfucker —

But he never hit the glass.

And suddenly someone beside him yelled, “Shit!”

Lowering his arms, Vic glanced around. He no longer sat in his own
car-he was in the passenger seat of someone else’s. The driver next to
him was an older fellow, Indian, with dark skin and wide, staring eyes
that eclipsed his face. “What are you doing here?” he yelled. “Where
did you come from?”

Good questions. Vic turned to look out the window and saw his car, now
empty, several vehicles back in the right lane. How the hell did he
wind up here? And how was he supposed to get back without making a
scene? “Hey!” the driver yelled beside him. “I’m talking to you.”

“Then shut up,” Vic growled, trying to think. It had to be another one
of Matt’s strange gifts. Why buy me something for Christmas? he
thought wryly. Look what all you’ve given me so far. Super strength,
telepathy, and now this. Vic had wished he could be in the left lane
and poof! Suddenly he was, albeit in someone else’s car. So how did he
get back to his own? Maybe if he just thought about it …

That jolt came again, this time from the front, as if he’d been hit by
a deploying airbag. Vic closed his eyes, swallowed the bile that rose
in the back of his throat, and hoped he stopped in the right car. What
exactly was this power called? The ability to think of a place and
appear there instantly. He wondered if maybe he shouldn’t start
reading comic books again to learn more.

As the nausea passed, Vic opened one eye, cautious. He was in the
right car, sitting in his own driver seat. With trembling hands, he
put the car into gear, then maneuvered out of traffic onto the
shoulder of the road. Some idiot drove up behind him, perhaps thinking
he’d go around everyone else, but Vic ignored the horn that honked at
him. Cutting off the engine, he flicked on his hazards and took a few
deep breaths in an effort to calm himself.

Okay. So he could now … what? Teleport?
