Some trailers, a photo gallery, and nine minute behind the scenes featurette are included here for bonus material. As expected the BTS is really the main draw and is quite entertaining with lots of candid moments from the cast and some on-set interviews. It's presented as a documentary of sorts over the course of the film's shooting and is even presented with 5.1 audio in addition to the high-def resolution (though the picture is much less refined than the main attraction).
<I>Riley Steele: Honey</I> is presented on Blu-ray in 1080p with a 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio and AVC MPEG-4 encoding that hovers bounces between 20.1 Mbps to 25.7 for much of the show. As expected the film looks quite good with some astounding detail at times (you could literally count the stubble that was growing back on Riley's shaved pussy). The picture is crisp, clean, and virtually flawless, though some grain does creep into the image. There are also some points where the video looks a tad on the soft side as if the camera's focus is off a bit. Colors are also relatively cold in most of the scenes here, but it doesn't detract from the experience.
5.1 Digital Surround Sound is the audio package for <I>Honey</I>. It comes through at 48 kHz with a 448 kbps bitrate. The sound quality is quite good with ample use of the soundstage and solid quality all around. The audio did come through as muddied or soft during a couple of scenes here, but this is a fine sounding package with crisp dialogue and plenty of backing for the moans, groans, and screams.

Body of Review:
Fans of Riley Steele pay attention! One of her latest releases, <I>Honey</I>, has hit Blu-ray and it looks really damn good. Five scenes make their way to the final cut and while Riley is undoubtedly the star of the show, Nicole and Allyssa get their fair share of the spotlight as well. The sex here is very good and I dare say that the quality of this Blu-ray is downright exemplary. If high definition porn is your thing (and why wouldn't it be?) you'll absolutely love this release!
In the first scene of <I>Honey</i> Nicole goes one on one with Scott Nails. Their scene starts out with a bit of amusing narration and quickly gets to the good stuff with an ample amount of oral to kick things off. For her part Nicole looks great giving a blowjob, and the foreplay even involves a little titty-fuck in between her mouth and hand service. Eventually she hops aboard and the camera captures every glorious detail of her pussy as she starts riding his cock. She does most of the work here, though I must say there's really not much of a connection between the two. Despite that, the scene gets better as she continues to ride him and eventually gets onto her side to take him from behind. The scene finishes off with Nicole taking it doggy style and then jerking him off.
The second scene of <I>Honey</I> features title girl Riley in all her glory as she takes on a bartender. She's wearing a nice little business-like number with a leather mini-skirt. This is convenient because it allows for the sex to get underway very quickly. She takes him from behind and does a little bit of sucking in between positions. Eventually she hops onto the bar and we get a nice big shot of her pussy getting eaten out. The scene shifts gears a bit and heads back into sex as she rides him, gets on her back, and even takes him from behind. That's pretty talented considering it more or less all takes place on a bar stool! Riley's first scene finishes with a goopy facial and plenty of slurping.
Scott and the bartender meet up and the tattooed pornstar relents how his relationship with Allyssa ended. Basically she was fucking around with another guy and we get to see the action here. Her scene is rather dry and features some vanilla sex, but there are a few moments that stand out. Allyssa has a nice squealing ride on top her partner and the scene ends with a new creampie as the guy pulls out in the nick of time to blast a load all the way to her face.
The fourth scene begins with Scott recanting his tale to Evan Stone and Riley. As soon as he leaves the two get on with the show. Evan is really rough with Riley throughout this scene with lots of choking and tossing her around like a ragdoll. Riley seems to appreciate it though, and both performers put on one heck of a display once the sex actually got going. Some interesting positions are undertaken here and I dare say it would seem that Riley is a bit of a contortionist. One particularly nice moment here saw Riley upside down hanging off a sofa while Evan propped himself up and pounded away at her pussy.
And finally, you just kind of new this one was coming. Riley and Scott eventually hook up and more than any other scene on this release, the two had some fantastic chemistry. They go at it like a pair of wild animals and I gotta say, the sex is so fast and furious that Scott cums rather quickly by porn standards. He absolutely nails her from behind while pinning her down to the bed and coats her breasts with his man goo. Awesome, awesome scene!
<I>Riley Steele: Honey</I> is a superb release with some great sex. It's safe to say that Riley steals the show, but Nicole and Allyssa turn in some good scenes as well! If you're a fan of Ms. Steele then you'll want to add this Blu-ray to your collection. Even if you're not familiar with her at all, this release still deserves to be checked out. The quality is quite good and despite some flat colors and softness the presentation is downright pristine. Highly Recommended!
