Dirty Cop | Matt’s Smut Vault

It’s a Smut Vault doubleheader this week! With one of our favorite authors pumping out another erotica romance short, we felt the need to get this review out the public as soon as possible. We all like our share of BDSM fueled dom/sub romance, right? It’s kind of our “thing” here at the Vault, but what happens when our doms and subs are outside of the bedroom? It’s a lost art to properly tell the story about what our characters do with their clothes on, and today’s author gives it her best shot. Let’s make sure our registration and permits are in order, we wouldn’t want today’s main character coming over for anything more than a social call. It’s a special law and order edition of the Smut Vault, y’all!

Dirty Cop by Sarah Bailey is another example of the author’s patented style of hot and heavy romance that balances difficult life challenges alongside white hot passion. Constable Matt Clark is one of those “men in uniform” that you think about when you consider that fantasy. Ice blue eyes, trim body, and a sexual appetite that could vanquish the whole town. At first, Matt appears as a lust-fueled maniac only after one thing. He’s reporting on site to the scene of a typical night club altercation: a fight over a stunningly beautiful woman. Amelia Williams is a total knockout, and could easily have any guy at the club tonight. Too bad for the party boys, because Amelia suddenly has eyes for this uniformed fantasy man. To Matt’s mind he’s captivated by this one exceptional lady, but to anyone else’s observation, he could come off as some sort of wanton sexual terrorist! After Matt takes a brief statement from Amelia about the incident, she covertly slips him a note that he discovers once outside. Amelia is rather unfulfilled sexually. She’s a vision of beauty, but most guys don’t have the gumption to do what she needs to be sexually satisfied. While not everyone takes well to the notion of “raw throat fucking,” Matt practically has that description written on his badge. As the stars seem to align before the reader’s very eyes, Matt reads the note: “I like your handcuffs.” To put it simply, as a great philosopher once said: GAME FUCKING ON!

Short story erotic fiction requires a certain level of instant connection. When putting sex in the front seat over love, the dynamic still leaves plenty of room to be realistic. Sure, Matt and Amelia are a pair of aces when is comes to fucking, however…actually, no. Let me focus on that for another second. The brand of sex here is a special flavor of insta-lust. It’s somewhat uncomfortable, if only because of how realistic it is. Matt has a raw desire to have a woman on her knees, obedient while desiring a rough, visually degrading level of oral sex. A face-fucking, if you will. Amelia’s desires seem more to please Matt, but there’s a strong case that she’s needed this kink all along. The sex scenes are powerful and memorable, and take extra care to note these pleasures of this specific branch on the BDSM tree. It’s not all about power, it’s not all about the sex, it’s a fairly well executed mixture of the two that makes these sex demons really click.

Sure, sex is great, but what about those frustrating bits of time where you have to keep your clothes on? The life of the couple is what makes the strongest case for this short story. Matt is a single father of an adorable 10 year old girl, and the road to this moment has of course been bumpy with grief and challenge. Amelia is entering his life, and you can already imagine the concerns with going too fast or forcing such a domestic situation on someone who might not want it. It’s a value adding conflict however, as it displays the “good soul” of both main characters. Being a sweet and good person while still having a savage sexual appetite makes the balance feel real. There’s a snap between a loving family dynamic and passionate dom/sub sex that shows people can so commonly be both a sex maniac AND a good family person with neither side of them ever being questioned. There is more to compassion than just aftercare, and this story paints a fabulous picture of it.

Verdict: Dirty Cop by Sarah Bailey is a great example of how the two sides of a person’s life can balance out into a fine erotic story. The sexual depravity and intensity shared by the main characters is worth the price of admission alone. The author’s offering is an excellent lens on a specific brand of dominant desires, and finally finding the right partners that complete their puzzle. Balanced with the debauchery is an equally valuable “real life” look at being a single parent that had to make tough choices so early in life, and how that factors into finding love in a not quite traditional way. This story will melt your heart just as much as it will melt…those other things, so be ready for many a warm sensation when taking on this dynamite erotic novella. We may have the right to remain silent, but if Matt gets his way you’ll be screaming his name all the way back to the precinct. Hands behind your back and on your knees…it’s time to be detained.

Special thanks to Sarah Bailey for providing an advance review copy of Dirty Cop to TehBen.com for review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
