Cast: Riley Steele, Erik Everhard, Stoya, Mick Blue, Tommy Gunn, James Deen, Manuel Ferrara, Chanel Preston, Bill Bailey
Length: 180:23 minutes
Date of Production: 3/8/2015
Extras: There were some trailers to newer releases, some spam, and a short photogallery but that was all.
Audio/Video Quality: Riley’s Yearbook was presented in the same aspect ratio the scenes were originally shot by Robby D. and other directors for Digital Playground. Unlike some compilations on the market, this one cut right to the sex so each scene was edited to a degree, nothing crucial for the majority of rain coaters and no company watermark onscreen at all times but parts of the buildup missing. Each scene looked fairly similar with decent lighting, solid camera work, and respectable flesh tones but the scenes were shot quickly so your mileage may vary. The video bit rate varied considerably but the scenes looked much like I remember the originals otherwise if that helps your decision. The aural components were presented in Dolby Digital but there was no headspace, special effects, or anything else that made me think the sound was rendered in anything except for monaural or basic stereo and then had a surround track encoded in post production. Regardless, I could hear most of the cast just fine, including those behind the camera when I paid attention, that always part of the fun of the series.
Body of Review: Robby D. has long been one of the most creative and talented directors in all of porn, his work for Vivid and Digital Playground often way ahead of the pack of peers that would emulate just about anything he did. I have not heard from him in quite some time but wherever he ended up, his latest release from DP is a compilation of his older works called Riley’s Yearbook, a variety of scenes starring cute Riley Steele through her years as a contract performer for the company. The single disc release included three hours of material, much of it strokable with a great cast in the scenes, the emphasis advertised as focusing solely on Riley Steele, a fair number of them involving former company contract performers. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Naked Aces 5: Riley Steele, Erik Everhard: Riley Steele, the beautiful little Xcritic blogger and company contract performer seen on the right hand side of the cover, was up in her first released scene for them as she dissuaded studly Erik Everhard from his mesmerized love of apple pie to a love for her hair pie. Riley's brilliant blue eyes sparkled and her face reminded me of a young Jenna Jameson without the mileage, the perfect cheerleader type plucked straight out of her teenage world to make her the latest contract gal with potential. She was far too lean for my tastes but those of you that like the barely legal body style and youthful appearance of the lady will find her a treat on the eyes. Needless to say, she exhibited a lot of chemistry with Erik, the guy eating her out successfully before she actively reciprocated with a short blowjob. She wanted a lot more though and backed up to him, taking his cock in doggy style as he nestled her from behind. Riley was too small to participate as actively as I wanted her though so her potential is as yet unrealized (maybe her scene in the forthcoming Pirates II, her first scene for the company, will prove her to be as fabulous as I've heard). Riley also became an active rider by the end of the scene, the comfortable bed serving nicely as their platform of love. Also of note is that she jerked him off to her own face, a nice change of pace even if done with too much emphasis on close up photography.
Scene Two: Teen America 23: Riley Steele, Erik Everhard: Riley Steele, the foxy little blond contract hotty featured on the center of the front cover (with the white shirt and pink panties), was up next as sound man Erik Everhard was observed making out with her on the green couch. He had arrived early and left his gear out front, Jack upset that he had started the interview without him. Riley was especially cute here, her girlish demeanor setting Erik off that he couldn't hold off going down on her, Riley relatively quiet as she reaped the rewards of his oral talents. Her panties came off soon after that though, granting Erik great access to her crotch for the oral he loved giving her, her attempts at giving him a lengthy blowjob rebuffed as he wanted inside of her badly. At this point, I felt it safe to say that Riley provided the most natural performance of the entire cast, less dedicated to porn standards than as if she were simply there to enjoy the gift in front of her. Erik drilled her pussy hard and she provided the most active ride I have seen her in to date, the guy diddling her to an orgasm and continuing his penetrative assault with a lot of going down on her from time to time. I also liked the way Riley blew and jerked him off to orgasm here, taking matters into her own hands as his spew flew all over the place.
Scene Three: Riley Steele Scream: Riley Steele, Stoya, Erik Everhard: When the movie starts, Riley and Stoya are watching a movie while Erik sits behind them. They send him out to get some snacks and beer but soon Riley gets scared. Erik comes back and they all start making out with the girls playing plenty of attention to his prick and to one another. Once he's good and warmed up the girls take turns riding his cock and sitting on his face. They eat and suck at one another as Erik goes back and forth between the pair and to finish the scene he stacks the girls up on top of each other so that he can fuck one pussy from behind and then the next until he blows his load across the two gorgeous girls.

Scene Four: So Fine: Riley Steele, Mick Blue, Tommy Gunn: Riley is the hottie featured in this DVD. She is a stunning blonde bombshell with big tits and tight body. In this scene her boyfriend tells her that he forgot to get his friend a birthday present. He always wanted to fuck Riley. So he talks her into a threesome. When the friend shows up they get into some heated oral sex. Riley sucks cock while getting eaten out. As the scene progresses the dudes take turns fucking and getting sucked off. Riley handles it like a pro and keeps each moment exciting. The camera work also does a good job to show off Riley's hotness as she is wildly fucked. The scene ends with cum on her face and chest.

Scene Five: Strict Machine: Riley Steele, James Deen: Riley Steele, the blond haired, blue eyed darling featured on the front cover, was up next with James Deen, her maid outfit punctuated by leg cuffs and handcuffs as well as a feather duster. He brandished a riding crop her way but relied more heavily on fingering her snatch, their mutual eye contact helping establish a modicum of chemistry. Both did very little oral on each other, Riley taking extra time to warm up for the vaginal sex as a result, the scene appearing to be cut short when he lost his load of population pudding early towards her face. If there is a big pile of deleted footage out there, I hope the scene gets a director's cut in the future.
Scene Six: Roommates: Riley Steele, Erik Everhard: Riley Steele, up next making out with frequent flying partner Erik Everhard in the shower, showed some chemistry as he kissed her hard and used his hand to diddble her bald beaver. He gobbled her gash as she moaned in enjoyment, The mixture of the moans and the water pouring down on them made for an interesting aural experience but it was a tad hollow, her superior eye contact helping make it work as they started activeling screwing vaginally, Erik doing much of the work plowing her but Riley giving in at times to show she cared. She continued trying to milk his balls dry of semen with a titty fuck, her still new boobs looking especially useful during the moment, and slobbing his knob, Riley focusing much of her effort on the top few inches while applying some hand to gland friction before she drained his dragon of sperm directed on her face.
Scene Seven: Assassins: Riley Steele, Manuel Ferrara: “While Jesse is throwing another tantrum with team leader Rocco (she even insists that she get "Farley" involved over the phone), BiBi is busy doing real detective work...tracking down the "widow" of Manuel Ferrara. Yes, Manuel's "widow," the delectable Riley Steele, is still alive after faking her own death to get away from her monster husband. So, after Jesse hears directly from Farley that she's required to work with BiBi, the two assassins meet with Riley to learn about any of Manuel's weaknesses that they might exploit. Riley tells them that Manuel has a weakness: "Manuel can't resist a woman of God." Then, she tells the girls (and we get to see every moment) how, as a young virgin missionary, she knocked on Manuel's door, was admitted to his mansion, tried to share her faith with him, and soon succumbed to his intense sexuality. Manuel convinces Riley that he's her "savior," and then moves in for a sweet--at first--kiss accompanied by tender caresses. Riley's Bible soon drops to the floor as her body begins to experience its first-ever sexual pleasure. After lots of sweet making out, foreplay eventually intensifies to include mutual stripping as Manuel strips Riley's body out of its prudish attire. He kisses, licks, and strokes Riley's bare flesh, spreads her legs, and greedily eats and finger-fucks her pussy as she writhes in ecstasy and pants with unbridled lust. Manuel also suckles and squeezes her perky breasts. In due course, "virgin" Riley shows surprising innate fellatio skills and handjob talent when Manuel strips off his pants and presents his titanium-hard and fully erect cock to her. She even gives him a double-fisted handjob and makes sexy stringers from her mouth to his rod. Meanwhile, Manuel treats Riley as an angel and is as sweet and considerate as any man has ever been to a woman. As the scene unfolds, Riley instinctively knows what to do next. So, she mounts Manuel, in cowgirl, lets him guide his cock into her tight "virginal" hole, and then rides him like a champion while he pistons in-and-out of her at redline speed. And, she fucks back using damned effective and sexy moves...for a "virgin," that is! Riley climaxes and then follows Manuel's lead when he turns her around so that the two of them can fuck each other in orgasm-inducing reverse cowgirl. Later, Riley enjoys getting fucked inspoon and kneeling doggie and even voraciously sucks her pussy juices off of Manuel's dick using slobbery pussy-to-mouth. To end the scene, Manuel guides Riley onto her knees, has her tilt her head back and open her mouth, and then jacks off onto her face and into her mouth. She swallows his bounty and sucks him dry.” (review by Doctor Jay)
Scene Eight: Cooking With Kayden: Riley Steele, Erik Everhard: Riley Steele, the foxy young blond seen on the middle of the front cover, was up next with Erik Everhard, the two show employees finding time to paw each other in the bathroom. He loved her ass and she jerked him off very nicely, kneeling down to blow him with a lot of skill. She concentrated her efforts on his head but throated him a bit, at times using her hands to increase the level of friction. He initially took her in a standing doggy but Riley bounced on his rod in a standing cowgirl which ended his reign of riding so she dropped down to take a facial of population pudding all too quickly.
Scene Nine: Trouble At The Slumber Party: Riley Steele, Manuel Ferrara: Riley is the other girl featured in this video. She is a good looking blonde with nice big tit and a tasty body. In this scene she has taken Bibi's boyfriend into the bedroom and has him eat her out. Next she goes to work on his cock. She's skilled at the act. The sex starts off with a lot of energy. The dude fucks her hard and fast. Riley jiggles in the right places. The scene ends with Riley sucking him off until the dude pops. Overall this scene had a lot of good energy. Fans of Riley should enjoy it. (review by Rob Randall)
Scene Ten: Porno Pranks: Riley Steele, Chanel Preston, Bill Bailey: Riley Steele, the major cutie seen occupying the top portion of the front cover, was up next as gorgeous Chanel Preston joined her in the shower as Bill Bailey watched. The ladies were looking sweet as they provided the wet look I enjoy so much, some caressing and kissing leading them to heat up the steamy scene. Bill did not watch for long before he jumped right in, the ladies blowing him as they double teamed the guy after he rimmed Chanel. Chanel looked fantastic bent over in the shower with Bill drilling her, the gal diddling Riley’s shaven snatch. It was an active vaginal ride where both ladies took advantage of his rod, the oral taste testing as active as their pounding flesh moves had been and the ladies kneeling to share the resulting load of population pudding to their faces with a lengthy kiss.
Summary: Riley’s Yearbook by director Robby D. for Digital Playground was a dedicated compilation of scenes focusing on attractive Riley Steele regardless of what sex acts she partook in, the mileage varying considerably as to how good some scenes were. I rated the compilation from the company archives as a very solid Rent It, my belief that unaltered scenes work best in their original context, enough of these ladies showing how much they enjoyed gobbling gash that you’d think the company might have listed the scenes on the cover. In short, Riley’s Yearbook was advertised as having a plethora of Riley Steele scenes, for those that might have missed out as they were released so give it a look if this appeals to you, the vast bulk of her body of work performed under contract at the company (she still only has a handful of scenes out from her work with Axel Braun at Wicked Pictures).
