Audio/Video Quality: I Heart (Love) Jasmine Byrne was presented in the usual 1.33: ratio full frame color as the scenes were shot by a variety of directors for a number of titles by New Sensations. The quality of the scenes varied more than a little bit as some were very appealing while others were in need of better attention to detail but I still felt that the overall compilation was handled fairly well and focused on the cutie in question quite nicely. The series has really sold well according to the company president and fans that have passed up on projects in the past (because they would only have a single scene of the object of their lustful desires) seem to find them really solid in terms of value so the minor technical matters aren't as big a factor here. The fleshtones were accurate, the lighting usually good, and the composition of the shots typically good enough to enhance the look of the ladies. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English, with little separation and limited dynamic range but at least the music was not as lame as it could have been in most cases (exceptions noted below).
Body of Review: Compilation series are still pretty new to companies like New Sensations so it's no wonder that they are still working the formula a bit to get things just right, providing fans with enough material to coax their money out of their wallets but also leaving enough behind for follow up volumes too. Such was the case with the double disc set of I Heart (Love) Jasmine Byrne; the most recent title in the series to make it my way. For those that are unfamiliar with the lady, she's the sultry Latina on the front cover that had a slow start in porn but soon found her edge to become quite a force in adult entertainment. She was recently cast in the leading role of a spin off series parody to become "J-Ho" the Jennifer Lopez porn clone but due to a very specific circumstance that I'm not allowed to tell, she was dumped in favor of another. Still, as a free agent, she has tremendous appeal and I think she has provided more strokable material well past the curve where her peers are pushed aside in favor of younger, newer performers so I suspect that she'll be giving us heated performances for years to come. Here's a quick look at the scenes by movie, cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:

Scene One: POV Fantasy 6: "Jasmine Byrne, the beautiful and sultry Latina, was up next as she played herself in the expansive living room with her skimpy outfit practically falling off her lithe frame. She teased a bit but made it clear that she was going to get his cock any way she wanted it and the playful mannerisms she employed made the scene especially heated for me to watch. Brother Love was again the focal point of the lady's attention as she sucked away with abandon, smacking her chin with his dick and working it over heatedly. She then started giving him a footjob but switched to riding him rapidly as she impaled herself on top of him rapidly. Just when I thought it couldn't get better, she pulled him out and forced him inside her ass, continuing to give a lot of dirty talk as she did so. She then did ATM and gave him some of the ball beating action that used to be a major part of the series, blowing and slapping his meat & balls very hard. She then rode him some more and went back to oral to jerk out a large load in this incredible scene that showcased why she's such an underrated but awesome performer."
Scene Two: Anal Retentive 6: Rob thought that: "Jasmine Byrne is a very sexy babe, who looks exceptionally good. She has been impressive in releases like Jailbait and Cum Glazed 2. Because of her beauty, it is too bad how this scene opens. There is no opening tease. While the action in this scene is pretty hot, it could have been better with a tease. The action opens with Jasmine getting her face stuffed for a couple of minutes. Ben English and Scott Nails take turns treating her mouth like a fuck hole. Not too long into the sex they change it up and throw sex into the action. Jasmine does very well sucking and fucking at the same time. The DP action is done fairly well."
Scene Three: Dippin' Chocolate 3: Jasmine Byrne was joined by Jada Fire and Mr. Pete according to Rob who said: "Pete has to be one of the luckiest guys in the world. In this scene he gets to join big breasted hottie Jada Fire and Jasmine who is a great looking babe. I enjoy watching both girls get into action. The fun opens with the girls taking turns sucking off Pete. They look great and put plenty of energy into the act. The sex follows in a similar fashion. Both chicks look really good getting fucked and they really seem to like it."
Scene Four: Bottoms Up!: "Jasmine Byrne, the hotty on the front DVD cover, is still fairly new to porn but she has displayed some nice moves in the limited scenes I've watched her in. Fans of Asian gals with all natural breasts and curvy asses will enjoy her work as much as Ben did in the scene. Her red dress didn't stay on her body very long and she really seemed into the oral action; giving him a decent blowjob. I didn't really care for the way she kept looking at the camera though (some of you will like it, I'm sure) so your mileage will vary. He was a bit rough with her at times and the gagging was hit or miss yet when they went to screwing, each seemed to be on the same page. The anal was the best since it didn't look like she was overly experienced and it did end in the advertised facial. In all, it was a good scene and I'm not exactly her biggest fan (when it comes to her earliest work)."
Scene Five: Addicted Again: Jasmine Byrne, one of the hottest Latinas in porn (if not THE hottest), was up last in a lesbian scene with Belladonna clone Nikki Nievez inside the house. The range of toys they played with was slightly broader but the fact that they too looked at the camera a lot and the vocals were so downplayed that I wondered what was going through the head of director Miles Long. They licked, rubbed, sucked and fucked one another silly and both gals appeared to have some substantial chemistry with each other but I was wishing the filters were taken off the camera since the yellow tint was getting old by this point. The spark they had for the action and chemistry for each other gave the scene some replay value but it could've been much better (and I mean without me joining too). There were some heated vocals towards the end of the scene though and I hope fans of the two ladies will stick it out to see what I mean.
Scene Six: Anal Retentive 5: Rob thought that: "Jasmine Byrne is a very attractive girl. She has a face of unexplainable beauty. The fun begins with her and Pete getting hot and heavy. Soon into it she gives him a great hands intensive blow job. The action includes some great face fucking. The sex continues to offer plenty of heated action. Jasmine looks gorgeous, whether Pete is working her pussy or ass."
Scene Seven: In Your Mouth On Your Face 2: Rob also liked her in this one, saying: "Jasmine Byrne is one of my current favorites to see in action. She is an amazing looking babe and has a great sex drive. This scene opens with her wildly sucking off some dude. She really proves she is quite talented in this arena. A very hot blow job."
Scene Eight: Craving Big Cocks 10: "Jasmine Byrne, a sultry Latina with an all natural body and killer look, was up first to open this volume of the series as she masturbated and teased in her black lingerie. Those that have seen her in action know that if given the chance, she'll win anyone over on the strength of such footage alone so it made sense to open the movie up with such a strong performer. After the tease, she was partnered up with Mr. Pete; kissing him as he diddled her pussy on the floor. This led to him giving her some head and her doing a great job in return with her energetic style of blowjob. He then went to pounding her pussy from behind, with her verbally encouraging him to the point where I could've lost my load had I not prepared myself in advance. They then went into anal mode and the energetic couple continued to provide some great chemistry together as he drilled her no end on the couch (with her telling him to "pound me"). The scene eventually finished with him rubbing out a decent sized load to her lovely face and her playfully kissing it."
Scene Nine: Squirting 101 #7: Jasmine Byrne, Dr. Philgood, Tony T., Brother Love, and Mr. Pete were up next with a distinctively wet theme to play with this time. She was new to the business and after some goofing around with Tony the camera hog, she started working his cock by the pool outside in the lounging chair. Tony powerfucked her throat as Brother worked the second camera and Pete hovered about in a longing fashion. They fingered her to induce her urination (sorry, I meant "squirting" lol) for the camera. Technically, Tony getting a blowjob was the only sex outside of the other men jerking her off and feeling her up but it was an interesting change of pace and the fluid show by her was more interesting than his mouthful of population pudding provided to be swallowed.
Scene Ten: Craving Big Cocks 6: I agreed with Rob when he said: "Jasmine Byrne is the good looking babe found on the DVD cover. She has a great looking face and a hot body. She is one girl I have really been enjoying as of late. The fun begins with some solo play. Next Ben English shows up and sticks an anal plug in her ass. Once inserted, he begins to fuck her in the pussy while her hole widens. Eventually the plug gets taken out and they move into anal sex. Overall the action was pretty hot with a couple nice oral interludes."
Summary: I Heart (Love) Jasmine Byrne by the various directors of New Sensations was one of the best I've seen in terms of showing her rise among the ranks of the porn pantheon. While I wished I had the chance to chat with her at the recent show in Las Vegas, it wasn't meant to be and there might still be a chance next year if she plays her cards right. There is not a doubt in my mind that she has the right stuff to become a star instead of just a really solid performer but that will take a lot of dedication on her part so as I continue to appreciate her work for others, I Heart (Love) Jasmine Byrne will serve as a title worthy of being Recommended thanks to the double disc amounts of fuck for the buck. I wish the second disc had been more filled with scenes and had sweet extras but I guess the overall impression I got was favorable and nearly enough for me to elevate the rating a notch (except it had nothing uniquely available in terms of scenes or extras as the Private series tend to do).
