How did you become involved with

My girlfriend’s sister suggested it because she was working with Playboy. I submitted my photos online and they were like, “OK, you’re in, we’ll have you come in and we’ll check you out.” It was kind of interesting because I was expecting to be nervous, but when I arrived everyone made me so comfortable I wasn’t [nervous] at all. What did you love most about your photo shoot?

I liked how the set was bright; it enhanced every feature. The scenery was beautiful and the piece was appealing to me. The cast and crew were amazing. What is your favorite part of your body?

I like my butt the best because it’s definitely voluptuous. My boyfriend is in love with it as well—it keeps me working hard for it! What is your favorite meal?

I love Mexican food—fatty and filling. It’s easy to make, too. I love making enchiladas. Throw in some enchilada sauce, tortillas, cheese and sour cream and you got a good meal! Do you cook a lot?

Oh yeah, I’m the best cook! I make the best burgers. When I cook for my boyfriend and his friends they’re like, “Holy Cow!” What makes you feel sexiest?

When I have my hair in curls and I have really smoky eyes and I’m in high heels. Do you have a favorite song for in the bedroom?

Actually, “Sexual Healing.” That song never fails. It’s awesome. What is one vice or bad habit you have that most people don’t know about you?

I bite my lips a lot. When I was doing my photo shoot, the photographer had to keep telling me to stop doing it. Sometimes I have a bit of a sailor mouth on me; I kind of cuss a lot. My boyfriend doesn’t like that. Do you have any secret talents?

I have my own album! I sing Christian and pop music. Kind of like Kelly Clarkson: feel-good music. My artist name is Brooke Angel and my album is self-titled. What are three albums you think everyone should own?

First of all, Mariah Carey is my absolute favorite. Beyoncé is incredible, I’m obsessed with her. And I’m crazy about Trey Songz.…Oh my gosh, Bon Jovi, I have to add Bon Jovi too! Have you ever had any strange celebrity encounters?

I don’t know if I’d call it strange, but I hung out with apl[.de.ap] from The Black Eyed Peas at a club in LA. I went to a club with my girlfriend and I was invited to sit at a table with him. He was actually a very quiet guy. Did he know you were a Playboy model?

He had no idea! What are your goals for 2012?

I definitely want to keep up with doing some shoots for Playboy Plus. I’d also love to finish my degree. What are you taking in school?

I’m getting my bachelor’s degree. I want to work with animals; I love them. I want to work with dogs and cats and animal rescue. I’ve changed my career path many times in my life, but I think I’ve settled on doing something with animals. Do the students know you’ve worked with

Work does, a few students do and they are all SO enthusiastic about it. I was expecting a different kind of reaction, but they’re all pretty much excited about it! They’re so supportive. How has posing for Playboy changed your life?

After I accomplished the first experience it brought out a new side in me. I felt more confident. The photo shoot made me feel sexier, more radiant, and more vibrant. I feel like if I can accomplish those photo shoots then I can accomplish a lot of things because that is a lot of girls’ dream, to pose for Playboy, and I got to do it. I know I hit it out of the ballpark and I did a fantastic job. What qualities do you bring to that another woman may not?

I definitely think I bring my confidence: I know what features are sexy and in what angles. I know what men and also women like, so I bring that to the table.
