The Positions of Love (Book 1) by J.M. Snyder

The first book on the new series The Positions of Love, sequel to The Powers of Love, see Matty and Vic approach their first Christmas together.

Despite his bulky body and tought behaviour, Vic is a tender guy, who has had a very difficult life and is waiting is very first Christmas with Matt cause it will be the first time in his life he will celebrate the Season in happiness.

The search of Vic for the perfect gift is heartwarming and Vic is like an elephant in a glass shop: he doesn't know how to move and he fears to break everything around him, but in the end he will find the right gift, a gift which arrives from the heart and from the deeply love he has for Matt.

And Matt is a beautiful man, both in body than in soul: he is caring and loving and wants so much to please this bear of a man with the heart of a child.

Of all the short stories about Matt and Vic I have read, I think this one is my preferred. And it opens wonderfully a series which seems to be very interesting. I can't wait to read more.

Two Pillars Position (The Positions of Love 2) by J.M. Snyder

Another brief chapter in Matt and Vic series.

Matt is at work, in the gym where he is swim instructor, and Vic decides to do some weight before work. But when Matt, through their telepathic powers, knows of Vic's presence, there is no way that he will let Vic go to work without first share a little hot moment in the shower...

But the Two Pillats Position (make love standing in the shower and not pulling out with a motion of the hips) gives a very strange new power to Vic...

The story is very short but it's only one in the new monthly appointment by J.M. Snyder. For who loves Matt and Vic adventures, made of the very nice men in love, this is a really tasty add. What I like of Matt and Vic is that they are two real characters, in an unreal situation.

Clasping Position (The Positions of Love 3) by J.M. Snyder

It's Valentine's day and Matt wants to go out for dinner in a classy steakhouse.

But before going out, Vic and Matt makes love, and as always, a new power is transferred to Vic through Matt's sperm: this time Vic can create sparks with his body. It's a funny power since Vic starts to melt everything around him.

Even if Matt is a dominant in the bedroom, it's Vic who is the steady guy in the couple. He is happy to content every whims of his silly lover, above all when Matt drinks too much, and becomes an horny man...

Another short, less than 25 pages, but funny enstallment in the Positions of Love series, that it's becoming like a monthly appointment for me.

Hammock Position (The Positions Of Love 4) by J.M. Snyder

Another little story in the Matt and Vic life, this one really short, less than 30 pages.

Matt and Vic feeling the spring in the air decide to spend an afternoon near the river. But what they thought to be a beautiful place to make out in open air, reveals to be a bit too crowded. And so in the end they change the setting in the rear seat of Vic's car.

What they finish to do is the Hammock Position, with Vic sits on Matt's lap. And this position gives a new superpower to Vic, the ability to move things with only the mind power. And Vic will have soon the chance to experiment this new power to help a bus full of children.

Since this series started, Vic is little by little coming out as a real superhero. What it was only a game between Vic and Matt, now starts to be something bigger and that puts Vic under the eye of the media. We will see in the next episodes what will happen.

Two Dogs Position (The Positions of Love 5) by J.M. Snyder

Vic and Matty continues their adventures. This one is a little 'domestic'. Our couple wants to threw a dinner party and they worry about the neighboor on the first floor, that always complains for their rumors. But Vic's landlady, a sweet nanny with an eye right for Vic, tells them to not worry and to enjoy their time with friends.

Before the guests arrive, Vic and Matty decide to try an 'old style' position, the doggy style... what they didn't expect, has ever, is the collateral effect: Vic gains 'dog' superpower: high hearing and protective feelings for his home and its inhabitants, like the landlady. And like a good dog, he will be able to protect his master.

Less than 25 pages, is another scene in Vic and Matty's life and a small chapter to add to this funny series. More time pass, more details the author adds to the couple and their environment.

Cowboy Position (The Positions Of Love 6) by J.M. Snyder

In another of the little scenes part of The Positions of Love series, Matt and Vic experiment a new for them position, but a quite favorite in the M/M romance genre, the Cowboy position.

This time the story is sweet and tender, since tells us something more on the day-to-day life of the couple. How they have a routine, Matt cooks, Vic cleans up, and then they cuddle on the couch, kissing and caressing till the bed time moment.

But when they want to try something new, they never know what superpower it will bring to Vic: sometime they are good powers, sometime not so good. The Cowboy position, for how simple it's, it's not so healthier for Vic.

There is not much to say on this one, since it's very short, less than 25 pages, other than that it's almost like we are becoming part of Matt and Vic's family, and so it's quite right that we read also of their simple life, made of chores and habits.

Kneeling Butterfly Position (The Positions of Love 7) by J.M. Snyder

Not always Vic and Matt have the same idea... Vic is more a type of couch in front of television and cuddle with his lover, Matt sometime instead has shopping frenzy, and when a new megastore opens near them, he can't help to be there first time in the morning, even if outside rain and lightining are pouring.

Matt drags Vic into a clothes department to buy new jeans to his lover, and obviously he wants for Vic to parade in front of him with every single pair he wears. And since Vic has a such good body it's a little step to find the two of them locked in a small dressing room, trying to use at best the little space. Vic will prove unexpected flexible ability...

Another little scene in The Positions of Love series, with another position for Matt and Vic to prove and another power for Vic to discover. Like in the previous one, I like to read about their ordinary life, of their life as a couple. It's pretty interesting to see how the most uncommon things happen to a so common couple.

Pillar And The Ivy Position (The Positions of Love 8) by J.M. Snyder

Like every long term relationship, also Vic and Matt face some moment of uneasiness: Matt is curios on the possibility of new sex games between them, and instead Vic is more a traditionalist, he would be glad to have a quite sex session in bed, missionary position or something similar. But he loves Matt and what Matt wants, Matt gets. And so they plan a morning in the swimming pool Matt attends, and it will be sex in the water... with obvious consequences when Matt's sperm has its collateral effect.

Vic is a down to heart guy, he is simple and open, he has not hidden side; Matt is a bit of a player, he likes to play and experiment and Vic is the perfect playmate, always eager to comply Matt's desires.

Another brief chapter, 23 pages, in the Vic and Matt's series. As always there is a mix of normality and paranormal, with Vic doing the dishes after dinner, with all the grumpiness of a man caught doing a chores, and with the all too normal needs for Vic to call in sick when another superpower makes its appearance... Vic's boss should be a very comprehensive guy, since lately Vic's leaves from work are escalating.

Tripod Position (The Positions Of Love 9) by J.M. Snyder

In book 9 of the Positions of Love, we learn something more on Vic's past. Vic is a quiet guy, he loves to stay home and make out in front of the television with Matt, but there is a secret hidden in the bottom of his closet, a box full of leather... Vic in the past was a leather man, and he went to those clubs so cherished by the biker type.

For Vic's birthday, Matt wants to do something special for Vic, and a night out in one of those clubs seems a good idea. The problem is that Matt is a very light drunk, and with what they drink at dinner and the beer they take in the club, Matt is gone for good, and as always Vic needs to play the role of the knight in shining armour. It's always quite funny to read that the stronger in the couple, and also the one that all consider the macho man, is instead the bottom. Not only that, Vic is also the more insecure; doesn't matter how big and strong he is, when he is around Matt, he is always fearing the moment in which Matt will awake from his sex indulged stupor to find out that he is tied to Vic, a man who doesn't deserve him. This is obviously Vic's thought, since Matt, and the reader as well, know better, and they can clearly see that they are fated to stay together.

Lotus Position (The Positions Of Love 10) by J.M. Snyder

Usually Vic and Matt's little life scenes are spent in the comfort of their small apartment, or in the big suburban space of their town. Not much people around, and this is good, since Vic and his strange powers are not something that is good to advertise. But even a superhero goes on vacation, or better the superhero's lover want to go on vacation, and Vic has to follow: we already know that Vic will do anything to please his lover Matt.

Matt drags Vic to a small beach town full of piers, amusement parks, shops (obviously shops, they are almost addictive for Matt) and... people! It's almost impossible for Vic to not be discovered, but, lucky for him, disguise in a crowd is easier than among few people.

On the sexual position of the day, Vic and Matt find out that it's very romantic to make love at night on the beach, if not for the little grains of sand that stick everywhere, especially in some intimate places... but Vic is all for the little 'pain' during sex, and so he doesn't complain too much.

The Arc Position (The Positions Of Love 11) by J.M. Snyder

It's Halloween time and Matt wants for them to going to a party his friend Roxy is having. As usual, it will not take too much for Matt to convince Vic to do as he likes, using sweet words and even sweeter sex; this is probably the thing I like most in this series, the contrast between Vic's rough exterior and instead his real behavior, that it is a quiet man, who loves to cuddle in front of the television and to spend as much time as possible only with his partner. Vic is always caring of Matt's happiness, and even if he doesn't like something, he would do anything to make Matt happy.

And so Vic accepts to wear a cop costume, but Matt has the brilliant idea to try a new love position soon before leaving for the party and the consequences are always surprising... let me say that Vic has to change his costume's choice to adapt his new looks. This is probably the most interesting part of the book, since again it underlights as Matt is the kinkier in the couple, even if he has the looks of a good boy; Vic could be the one that looks like a biker or a big bad guy, but for real he is the most conservative man, he doesn't like to experiment, and instead Matt always finds something interesting, in a sexual way, in the strange paranormal powers he gifts Vic.
