President Donald Trump isn't the only prominent figure who's discussed in an unflattering manner in Stormy Daniels' new book. And what the adult actress had to say about Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger doesn't paint him in a positive light.

A copy of Daniels' book, "Full Disclosure," was obtained by CNN. And the network reports that in the book it reads that Trump asked Roethlisberger to walk Daniels up to her hotel room at a golf resort.

Daniels wrote that Roethlisberger asked her for a "good night kiss" that she refused. She says he pushed lightly on her door as they stood outside her hotel room.

"I was terrified. I am rarely terrified," Daniels wrote, saying Roethlisberger responded, saying, "'Come on.'"

Daniels wrote that she closed the door and writes that Roethlisberger "stood outside, not leaving" while knocking at her door for several minutes but eventually left.

Roethlisberger has previously declined to comment on any anecdotes Daniels has shared about him. Roethlisberger has said in the past he has golfed with Trump.

Roethlisberger makes it his policy not to consent to media interviews between Thursdays and game days. The Steelers next play at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
