SYNOPSIS

Maitland Ward got her start in acting as a teenager when she was cast in The Bold and the Beautiful, but it wasn’t until she joined the later seasons of the sitcom Boy Meets World that she got her first taste of fame. As the loveable, sexy (but not too sexy) co-ed Rachel McGuire, Ward soon found herself being typecast as the good girl next door and was repeatedly denied darker, more intriguing roles. So she made a career change—one that required her to turn away from the Disney universe—and eventually established herself as one of the most-respected actresses in the porn industry today.

Now, Ward reveals the ups and downs of her fascinating career, including personal stories from her time on one of the most beloved shows of the 1990s, in this anything but a run-of-the-mill memoir. By showing Hollywood and triple-X stardom in a whole new light, she offers a fresh and stirring perspective on the sex industry. Ultimately a story of hope and triumph, Rated X is a sharp and provocative look at a former Disney princess who found her fairy tale in porn.


I received this book for free from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.



I discovered Maitland’s work when she appeared on Boy Meets World, which was one of my family’s favorite shows. While I have never seen any of her work on Deeper or Vixen, I have enjoyed her work on Boy Meets World and White Chicks. I enjoyed reading this book and learning about her journey in Hollywood and beyond.

Loved the part referring to Jack and Jennifer (Days of Our Lives) having sex for the first time. This reminded me about how excited my friend and I were about that happening and how we had rushed home from the library that day so we would not miss it. I was a huge Days of Our Lives fan.

Well written, easy to read. Full of passion and honesty. This has to be one of the best books I have read all year.

I would recommend it to any fan from any of Maitland’s work.
