In the cover photo unveiled Thursday on FHM's official website, the 29-year-old actress is seen posing wearing only earrings and a necklace at what appears to be a beach.
Rivera, who debuted on FHM's cover in January 2013, was photographed by lensman Mark Nicdao for this latest summer-themed pictorial.
Asked why she agreed to grace the magazine's pages a second time, Rivera said, "Ibig sabihin malaki ang tiwala ko sa FHM dahil ginawa ko ulit. Siguro bilang second time ko na ito, at alam ko na kung paano makipag-trabaho sa [FHM]."
"Mas masarap makipag-trabaho nang walang wall. Mas transparent ka na sa kung ano'ng gusto at ayaw mong gawin. Very amenable naman ang FHM sa mga gusto kong gawin," the actress was quoted as saying on the magazine's website.
FHM's March 2014 issue, which also marks the magazine's 14th anniversary in the Philippines, will hit newsstands on Friday.
