Welcome to Under the Covers. We are so excited to have you here as part of COVER MODEL WEEK, so thank you! Now let’s get to know you a little better.
Tell us 5 things about yourself that most people wouldn’t know.
1. I’m 100%Lebanese
2. Born in Windsor Ontario
3. Grandparents were successful politicians
4. Great Grandmother lived to 107
5. Played sports since I was 3
How did you get started modeling?
Selfies lol. I played sports my whole life and I stayed in pretty good shape. I did amateur shoots and posted to social media. I eventually got noticed and the rest is history.
What has been your favorite photo shoot or modeling experience you’ve had so far and why?
The traveling and visiting different places is definitely my favorite. Shooting in Miami and local is always fun but I love experiencing new places.
After years of bad relationships and a cheating ex-fiancé, twenty-eight-year-old Mia Martinelli prefers healing her patients’ hearts on the Cardiac Care floor rather than risking having her heart broken again. But that all comes to a screeching halt when caring for the head roadie for Runaway Train puts her into the orbit of drummer and Latin Lover, AJ Resendiz. After a scorching weekend of steamy passion, Mia’s intention of getting out with her heart unscathed is challenged by the stud with the wicked sense of humor, especially when he wants to continue seeing her. But when the harsh reality of AJ’s hoard of female admirers sends her insecurities into overdrive, Mia bails, leaving him handcuffed to his bathroom shower.
AJ never imagined that after two weeks of the best sex and female companionship he’d ever experienced, he would need rescued by his band mates from his shower prison. Although he tries to forget the sensual brunette whose curves made his mouth water, AJ can’t get her out of his mind…or his heart. Months later when he finally seeks Mia for answers as to why she left, nothing could prepare him for their life-altering reunion.
Can AJ prove to Mia that regardless of the women after his body, his heart belongs only to her?
Do you have any funny/awkward moments on set that you can remember?
I’m glad most behind the scenes activities are not captured. There are many ways to get in the zone and some of them are hilarious. Especially when there are multiple models involved.
How do you keep in such good shape?
I grew up with a very athletic background. I took that into college and developed myself even more. It became a lifestyle and somewhat of an obsession. The human body is remarkable.
Perfection is an illusion fueled by the perception of others.
Tweet was my heart, my soul, and my purpose.
She was my everything.
Neither of us were perfect. We both made mistakes. Looking back, that was okay, because every choice brought us to where we needed to be at the time we needed to be there. The one constant, our love and friendship.
There are two sides to every story and I wouldn’t trade our sides for anything in the world.
Do you have any rituals before you go into a photo shoot?
The prep is always interesting. I’m always slightly changing my routine. The funniest part is when I am in line buying junk food (I don’t eat those ever until before a shoot) before the shoot to carb load and see the looks on the cashier’s faces.
Do you read any part of the books you’re on the cover of? Anything in particular that made you blush?
I have been given excerpts and some things are pretty juicy to read. But it’s not too far off from reality ;D
You don’t have to work on a weekend and just get to relax. What can we find you doing?
I love the pool and the beach. I do still workout and train but the weekend does somewhat give me a mental break.
Tell us one of your guilty pleasures.
Eating peanut butter and Nutella out of the jar.
And just to make the ladies swoon a bit… You are taking your girl out on a date and really want to impress her. What’s your game plan?
Girls don’t usually have someone go all out for them. I usually get to know someone first to tailor make the perfect date for them. So if a person likes the beach. I’ll take them to the beach on a perfect night, lay down a big soft blanket, listen to the waves and look up at the sky, and bring wine and chocolate ;D
Cover Model Week was started due to our excitement about the RT Book Convention. Have you had a chance to attend any book signings? And what the best experience you had during one so far?
I have attended multiple signings. I love traveling and seeing new places. It’s the only time I can mix business and pleasure.
