Welcome to this special edition newsletter that we’re calling CRAZY ABOUT MIKE! L.P. Dover, Kimberly Knight, and Lisa Suzanne all recently published romance novels with model Mike Chabot on the cover, and we had the chance to talk books and photos with the cover model himself. Read on for more about each of these books, a special giveaway where you could win all three books in paperback, and our interview with Mike, the man who plays rock star Mark Ashton in one book, police officer Seth McKenna in another, and Ian Chandler, FBI agent in the third.
Reserved and responsible Reese Brady refuses to miss her chance with bad boy rock star Mark Ashton. After one steamy night, she’s convinced the emotional connection they shared was just a figment of her imagination. After all, he’s a womanizer whose affairs are highly publicized.
Reese strives to leave that night behind her after a handsome business mogul asks her to dinner. Her relationship with Brian Fox quickly escalates into something meaningful, but Reese never expects the secret that emerges when he finally invites her to his penthouse.
She fell in love with a rock star the last time she was there. How could she know she’d fall in love with his brother next?

with more and more girls and showing my face out there. That was probably how I
did it, and shooting with many photographers, that would be the easiest way.
Do you own/read the books you’ve been on the cover of?
on. I love to have them at my place. I do a little collection so it’s always
not all released, but I’ve sold probably 160 pictures.
has she ever read the ones you’ve been on the cover of?
with me, but we’re not together anymore and she didn’t read romance books.
My mom likes to see the books. She likes to have copies of them.
the book surprised you?
don’t read the books. I’m super super busy and I’m not a super big reader, so I
would probably say no because I don’t read books to be honest.
actually that’s what I want to become. I really love TV and I watch tons of
movies and tons of TV shows. If I could play one, I’d like to co-star with
someone like the Rock or any big actor like Brad Pitt, Robert Downy Jr., Mark
Wahlberg … there’s tons of good actors. That would be cool.
Tell us about the meaning behind some of your tattoos.
means women, sensuality, sexuality, some phrases that are key to me in life,
like I got a boat that is tattooed in my arms which means the captain of my
fate, the master of my soul, so basically captain goes with the ship. I got two
Japanese tattoos, one on both of my hands which mean renewal of life so every time
that something dies like a relationship or anything it’s to be reborn in
something else. There’s another one which is protection. I have kings of gods,
so Zeus, which is pretty cool. All my tattoos mean something for me. I’m
getting Buddha tattooed right now, it’s for spirituality. Tons of other
meaning, but the big one would be that one.
How long have you been a personal trainer/model?
probably four years, really focusing into modeling in the last year. Book
covers I did for three years. Real model, not even a year that I decided I
wanted to go full model instead of fitness model.
What made you decide to get into fitness?

calendar. My calendar was dope. It was 12 … 14… no, 16 pictures that we shot
with Alfie. We traveled all California for it, but we had two weeks to do it so
it meant that we worked every single day traveling to the destination, taking
the picture, editing the picture, finding what we wanted to shoot because we
were improvising. Fuck, it was crazy, and at the same time we were partying and
enjoying life, so it was terrible, it was challenging as fuck.
How often do you travel for work?
times, most of the time it’s for work. I love traveling. I’m always traveling
to either build content, learn new stuff, meet new people, do connections.
Travel is life. It’s one of the only things you can spend your money on that
you’re actually investing in yourself ‘cause you see the world and you see more
and you think different when you come back. You’re not thinking like everyone
that didn’t travel.
What is your favorite place you’ve gone for a photo shoot?
Thailand, Malaysia. Dubai was nice, but it wasn’t for a shoot. Actually it was
a little bit, but more for pleasure. I would say Dubai was cool, but California
is hard to beat, such a nice place.
How do you handle attention from strangers?
sometimes I skip people. It’s not that I’m mean, I get tons of messages. It’s
always cool to have attention and to impact people’s lives, that’s more what I
like. I wouldn’t say having attention out of people but impacting their life
and I try to be a positive impact. If someone is giving me their attention it’s
because I impacted their life and motivated them and inspired them so I’m like
fuck I’m just gonna give them an answer. Of course some people go way too far
or ask too much attention.
Has fitness and modeling always been a dream for you or did it just happen?
what I love when I want it as much as I want it and I wanted a job where I would
be able to travel the world while making money and improving myself. I think I
found what I want to do with fitness and modeling online and personal training
