One of the models who have been frequently featured on romance novel covers has announced his retirement. After posing for over 630 covers, Jason Baca told People that it’s time for him to step back:
“As of today, I’ve appeared on 635 book covers with a few more coming down the pipes from previous shoots,” Baca, 45, tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Despite the successful modeling career that he’s established, Baca says that he’s now taking a step back because “the passion isn’t there.”
“I’m one of those types that either you go about what you want in life wholeheartedly or not at all! My desire in the beginning was there. Someone could say something negative to me about it and it would bounce right off of me with no effect,” he says. “I knew what I wanted, being on covers was the object of my desire.”
