Length: 1 hr 23 min
Some bonus trailers and a photo gallery are included here for bonus features. There's also a Behind the Scenes Featurette (8:47) packed in as well. Like other Digital Playground BTS features this one is definitely worth checking out once you finish watching the film. It contains a slew of fun interactions between the crew, some bits of interviews, and on scene goofing around.
Riley Steele Love Fool is presented on Blu-ray with an anamorphic widescreen image and full 1080p resolution. The film has been encoded with an AVC-MPEG4 codec and hovers around 20 Mbps. The image quality is on par with what one would expect from a Digital Playground high definition release. That is to say that the image is virtually flawless with some incredible details throughout. Just about every detail from the lightest of goose bumps on someone's skin to fine wrinkles and blemishes really stand out. Black levels are deep and rich, and the contrast is quite solid as well. It's a fantastic looking transfer and speaks to the quality department at DP.
For the audio Digital Playground once again presents one of their films with a boast-worthy English 5.1 Dolby Digital track at 48 Khz and 448 kbps. The quality is very good with clean dialogue and an all around crystallized presence on the soundstage. There's nary a flaw to be found with the audio package here and it's worthy of a home theater environment. Sure a DTS Master Audio track would have gone a long way in that sense, but really the material here didn't call for it.

Riley Steele is hot and she's even more gorgeous in Blu-ray. I found that little fact out a while ago while checking out some of Digital Playground's other high definition releases. How does Love Fool stack up? Well, considering you get Riley Steele, Sindee Jennings, Tori Black, and Dani Jensen the quality of the performances speak for themselves. The scenes here are very good and the sex is a cut above most titles. The picture and audio quality is also respectable and those with HD home theaters will have something to titillate their sense with.
The first scene in Love Fool takes place in a bar that's familiar. After all it's the same set piece that was used in Honey. Riley sits at the bar and talks to the bartender, Scott Nails, and soon the two are getting to know each other on a more personal level. There's a bit of foreplay here that includes some oral fun, but eventually Riley gets uncomfortably positioned on a barstool to take Scott's cock. The action is very good, though a little on the static side with regards to camera work, and it turns out to be a satisfying yet standard scene.
After a little bit of plot exposition (in a porno? Say it isn't so!) we once again see Riley at the bar. This scene isn't about her though, because in the background you can see Dani getting hit on and eventually succumbing to Tommy Gunn's charms. Her clothes are repositioned and his dick comes out soon enough. She sucks his dick for a while and eventually turns around to take him from behind. Their sex is nice and slow with some decent positions. Personally I enjoyed this piece the most when Dani climbed on top for some cowgirl fun. She really took charge of the scene and livened things up a bit. Overall this scene was enjoyable and featured some decent sex, but once again there were points where it just felt kind of dry and there wasn't a spark to the action.
Moving from the second scene to the third, Scott starts hitting on Sindee Jennings and eventually gets the brunette alone in a booth. This particular scene has the makings of a quickie written all over it. They play orally for a time and then Sindee bends over to take Scott from behind. There are a couple of positions here, but the action feels like it's over rather quickly. Ultimately there wasn't much chemistry between these two and it just felt kind of cheap and tawdry. Then again there's nothing wrong with cheap and tawdry sometimes.
Riley makes an appearance again for the fourth scene here and this time around she meets up with Danny Mountain at her place. This one has a lot more energy than some of the previous scenes that took place in the bar and there's some real pizzazz between the performers. Riley really gets into the sex and the camera work feels much more dynamic somehow. I LOVED the part of this scene where Riley writhed on the bed on her back while Danny pumped away at her pussy. Some of the shots the camera captured were absolutely gorgeous and when combined with the constant supply of moans and groans it made the action that much hotter.
Tori is tapped for action next. In her scene she's sitting behind to of the lead male performers and eventually Mick Blue back to show her what's for. There's absolutely no lead-up to the action and no foreplay. Instead she just bends over and willing takes a plowing cock into her pussy. If you've ever seen Tori then you know she exudes lust in just about every scene she's a part of and she has a real craving for cock. This holds true here and she really captivates the viewer and draws attention from the camera. Because of her this scene felt a little livelier than some of the others and stood out as one of the better pieces of action on this release.
Wrapping Love Fool up is a scene with Riley and Ben English. This one is a quickie with only eleven minutes of runtime, but the quality really stands out. The sex here was raunchy with a great deal of chemistry being apparent between the performers. They wanted each other and the sex showed that. Though they only have time enough to get into a couple of positions the sex stands out and was a nice way to send us packing before the credits rolled.
Riley Steele Love Fool is a solid release with six scenes of sex featuring some of the best performers in Digital Playground's lineup. Tori and Riley truly stand out here with Dani and Sindee taking up a very close third and fourth. Not every scene here is a breakout success, but there's enough variety and action in the latter parts of the film to make up for the weaker beginnings. The sex in the first three scenes just lacked "pop" and weren't outstanding, but the second half definitely kicks it up a notch.
