Cast: Riley Steele, Scott Nails, Mick Blue, Erik Everhard, Rocco Reed, Manuel Ferrara
Length: 160:58 minutes
Date of Production: 2/2/2016
Extras: There were some trailers to newer releases, some spam, and a short photogallery but that was all.
Audio/Video Quality: The Best of Riley Steele 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. His latest release from DP is a compilation of his older works called The Best of Riley Steele, a variety of scenes starring former company contract performer Riley Steele in a myriad of scenes from company archives. The single disc release was all about Riley and thankfully included a list of which movies the scenes came from on the back cover, a helpful guide for fans of the busty blond babe. The company website described the movie like this: “Blonde hottie Riley Steele is one of the businesses prime pieces of asses and Digital Playground brings you some of her best scenes in an all Riley compilation that every man should own. Riley knows how to get off and always gets her men off in wild and extravagant ways that you'll always remember!!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Jack’s POV 14: Riley Steele, Scott Nails: Riley Steele, the hotty on the front cover and current contract performer, was up last and fans of lean babes will find her much to their liking. She walked in wearing a black dress that barely covered her body, her labia hanging just below the hemline as Scott Nails felt her up. I admit that I like gals with more curves and those that are more sexually aggressive but Scott sure seemed to adore stuffing his head between her ass cheeks to savor her juices. He continued his oral assault as she masturbated, her shtick as the passive little waif once again coming out to play. In a turnabout from the usual way the scenes are shot for the series, Scott set the camera down a few times to capture the couple going at it, his best work seen when the camera appeared to be held by him instead of on the sidelines. Riley masturbated and soon started blowing him, her eyes shining brightly as she worked a couple of inches into her mouth with glee. He was far too large for her to handle and Scott eventually traded places so he could eat her out, moving to some vaginal boning where she was mostly passive in how she reacted to his pecker penetrating his tiny pussy. While following Kristina is a difficult thing, Riley has made her living off a different dynamic, allowing men to control her sexuality rather than openly (and aggressively) going at it, so while my personal preference would have had her showing more enthusiasm, this was her best scene to date. She continued fucking and sucking until Scott rubbed one out on her face, Riley's admittedly enchanting eyes very appealing to me.
Scene Two: Honey: Riley Steele, Mick Blue: The second scene of Honey features title girl Riley in all her glory as she takes on a bartender (played by Mick Blue). 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. (review by Harry Johnson)
Scene Three: In Riley’s Panties: Riley Steele, Erik Everhard: Riley Steele, the sexy young blond featured on the front cover, was up first as she walked in on Erik Everhard, the guy wrapped up with using her soiled panties sexually. Worried that she would freak out, he was stunned when she took off her current pair and stuffed them in his face, masturbating with them to freshen their juiced up appeal. He took over warming her up with his hand before going down on her, Riley reciprocating by slobbing his knob and the two vaginally screwing after that. A few positions and some more oral later and Riley received his load of spunk to her face, rubbing it all over as she looked up at him.
Scene Four: Riley Steele: Chic: Riley Steele, Mick Blue: Riley Steele, the fair haired, blue eyed hotty seen featured on the front cover, was up next with studly Mick Blue, the gal teasing in bed to an erotic bit of violin music. As far as montage openings are concerned, it was not bad for an erotic piece but did little for me personally, the serious look on her face just working against my tastes even if I found those torn shorts of hers quite appealing. The music stopped when Mick was in the picture, the man warming her up with some caresses and oral, her reciprocation using her mouth an upgrade from some of her earlier work. She was still too passive a ride for my tastes as she allowed Mick to do all the work, resulting in a belly pop of population pudding, the lack of personal chemistry displayed making it a onetime watch for me.
Scene Five: Satisfaction: Riley Steele, Scott Nails: Next date for the couple and they seem to have worked things out and she is ready for them to have sex, but she wishes they could be alone. So Scott asks Seth if he can leave them alone, and Scott sings some Tiffany and Riley stills seem to want to fuck him anyways. So they start kissing and groping each other and she opens his pants, as he pulls down her top and begins to suck on her tits, and then shoves his hand down her pants and rubs her pussy as she moans with delight. He slides off her pants as she leans over the booth, and he dives his face and fingers in her pussy, before he gets out of his pants and underwear and she goes to town on his cock. There is some face fucking and gagging as she continues to work over his cock. After the oral session is done, she is leaning up against the booth as he fucks her from behind. The heat between these two is great and they seem to play off the whole not having sex together pretty well. And after some more oral love, she bent over for some more doggy before she climbs on top for some reverse cowgirl action, as he gives her a good pounding. As Riley goes back to work on his cock, it seems that she is working up quite a sweat so far, and maybe even more as she hops back on for some cowgirl action, as he leans over the side of the booth, doesn’t look comfortable, and then we cut to her as she is once again getting face fucked until he cums in her mouth and lets it slide down her face and onto her tits.

Scene Six: Strip For Me: Riley Steele, Scott Nails: Scott is showing off his dance moves in front of the bathroom mirror and Riley sees him and begins to tease him about it. She seems to be turned on by it, as she lays on her stomach and lets him play with her ass. He somehow turns the tables and convinces her to strip for him. He busts out his camera and starts to record this moment so he can re-live it later, over and over again. She gets naked pretty quick and then joins him on the bed, as she starts him off with a blowjob. But she quickly ends up on top of him, reverse cowgirl styles with her amazing ass in the face. She leans back and continues to ride him as they turn a little towards the camera, to make it a little easier to catch all of the action. She goes back to work on his cock, but then climbs back on for another ride on the Scott train. She really seems that she wants to get really wild and crazy while on him, but he slips out a few times to slow down the action. They move onto some spoon action, as the camera focuses on her facial expression as the fucking continues. I have this scene a slight advantage over the previous one with her and James, due to seeing her laying on the bed, with that ass sticking out in the air, which was amazing. Plus I think the chemistry is a little better with these two. Back to the action, some brief oral is followed up by some cowgirl action. He pulls out and gives her a quick break and then ends up fucking her from behind as the scene continues. He pulls out and jerks himself off until he cums in her mouth, with a few stray shots on her face. (review by Shawn)
Scene Seven: 7 Minutes In Heaven: Riley Steele, Rocco Reed: Riley Steele and Rocco Reed make love in the living room. The endearingly sweet blonde sucks his meaty plaything in a hearty fashion before she straddles it with much conviction. The viewer gains in excitement during it. Meanwhile, the butt shots are very cool. The woman's sexy legs with her black heels are effective eye candy stimuli. After the bouncy reverse cowgirl cockride, her fella cums on her beauty spot and they kiss to end the scene. (review by Apache George)
Scene Eight: Escort: Riley Steele, Manuel Ferrara: Riley Steele, wearing a low cut black dress, was up next in the compilation sitting on the lap of Manuel Ferrara, some gray noticed in her dress too. He diddled her bald beaver under her skimpy red panties as her thong nestled deep inside her ass crack, the gal grinding her hips into his crotch in the darkened office. They sat on a chair but he soon sucked her boobs and placed her on the desk to gobble her gash, Riley reciprocating by slobbing his knob actively even if only taking a small portion of his turgid pecker in her mouth, good eye contact by both of them enhancing the scene though lacking context with the other movie elements always weakens it for me. He ate her perky ass and she gave him a titty fuck too, her hand to gland friction getting him ready to plow her perfect pussy in a few positions, Riley fairly passive though offering some verbal coaxing, some nut nuzzling and active cowgirl variations helping to drain his dragon of sperm for the welcome facial of manly fluids during the post coital head.
Scene Nine: Riley Steele: Lights Out: Riley Steele, Mick Blue: Riley Steele, wearing a black top and colorful skirt in an office setting, then finished things up as dark dressed Mick Blue embraced her for the couple to kiss, the pair picking the action up in the bedroom within moments. The clothing flew off and both gave some energetic head, some wisps of pubic hair observed on the blond babe but the best news was how active she rode his raging boner during several of the positions as a means of milking his balls dry of semen. Her eye contact suffered this time but he seemed to get her off with his hand, the athletic blond overdoing the vocals a little though her brilliant eyes looked amazing as he beat off to her face.
Summary: The Best of Riley Steele 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 Watch It Online, my belief that unaltered scenes work best in their original context. In short, The Best of Riley Steele 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, her newer works often better in terms of her sexual abilities, if not the technical aspects.
