Meet the Author


Christine Glover is a contemporary romance author of sensual, sizzling, emotional contemporary romances. Her tough, no-nonsense heroines aren’t easily swayed by great looks and killer abs, but they surrender their hearts to their heroes when they discover these Alpha men deserve love. She still has to figure out how to apply makeup or style her hair without someone popping into her head to give her another scene to write. Ultimately, she sits down to write about two lost souls finding each other, discovering home, and giving her romance characters the happily-ever-after endings they deserve.

Born in the Netherlands, Christine’s parents immigrated to Canada where she spent her formative years. After meeting her own real life hero, she married her Texan Alpha man and moved to the United States where she’s lived both north and south of the Mason Dixon line. Now Christine lives in Alabama with her husband the Physicist, her wonderful daughter, and two insanely adorable cats. She enjoys finding the silly in the serious, making wine out of sour grapes, and giving people giggle fits along with heartfelt hugs. When she’s not writing, you can find her traveling the world, cooking gourmet food, and desperately seeking a corkscrew.

    Overall, I thought this was a pretty good book. What bothered me

    Overall, I thought this was a pretty good book. What bothered me was Kennedy. I just felt like she made way way WAY too big of a deal (in her head) about the pregnancy issue. I also kept expecting there to be some horrific reason why she didn't want to get pregnant (or that she actually couldn't)...But the truth behind it was something of a let down. I also found her reasoning for not telling Zach to be a little weak. But other than that, this was a decent book. Just not my favorite from Indulgence of late.

    This book made me cry - several times. It takes a lot for a book

    This book made me cry - several times. It takes a lot for a book to do that to me. It was a good cry, an emotional cry, and I felt better when I was done. Zach and Kennedy took me such an emotional roller coaster that I was exhausted at the end of the story. It was almost too much. Their history was full of so much pain for them to overcome that I still don't know how they managed to do it. 




    Kennedy is a tough as as nails construction worker that has taken over her father's company. She's more at home in boots and jeans checking out a roof than anything else. She has built up a wall around her heart after tragedy struck years ago, and she is determined to never let anyone in. Zach wants to break down those walls, he just doesn't quite understand why they are there to begin with. 




    A lot of Zach and Kennedy's problems are because neither of them is completely honest with the other. Their relationship is full of misunderstanding and pretending. The truth is too hard for either of them to deal with at first. It was an amazing story that is full of real life issues as two amazing people have to try and wade through them to find each other again.

    The Maverick's Red Hot Reunion by  Christine Glover is a great book!  I loved the whole story.  

    I love the way she write both Kennedy and Zach's character.  Kennedy is strong woman who has hidden the true reason she broke off her relationship with Zach.   Zach is now Kennedy boss and he know what he wants and he going to go after it.  The two make a great combination. 

    I love how the both Kennedy and Zach interact with each other.  This what a great read and hard to put down.

    A reunion between Zach and Kennedy. This is an emotional read of a reconnection of love and healing from the past.
    A faked re-engagemant between Zach and Kennedy to appease their dying mutual friend.
    A secret comes out through the story of their failed first engagement.
    I really enjoyed how they were all to mend their broken hearts. The chemistry between them was hot, even though Kennedy fought it off.
    Great secondary characters, looking forward to their stories in future books.
    I received this book as a gift from the author for an honest review.

    Zach Tanner always thought of Sweetbriar Springs as home, but he left to work for his father. Now he's come back temporarily to help his dying friend rebuild the local resort into a world class spa. This means working with his ex-fiancée, Kennedy Gibson. After the death of their baby, their relationship fell apart. Can they put aside their attraction and deeply buried hurt to do what needs to be done? I found this story to be a very touching and heart-breaking read. Zack and Kennedy are strong-willed and determined to do what's best for their friend. Neither has quit grieving over the loss of their child and their love. Christine Glover captured their emotions in a powerful way that drew me into the story. I found all the characters to be interesting and would love to read more about Sweetbriar Springs and the people who live there. I admit I shed a few tears while I was reading The Maverick's Red Hot Reunion.

    Zach and Kennedy have a lot of history. They fell in love young, got engaged and pregnant, lost the baby and broke up. Fast forward five years, and the serious illness of a good friend has brought them back together. They slowly work their way back to each other and start to build the life they thought they would have.




    I instantly confected with Zach, but Kennedy slowly began to grow on me. I was routing for them by the end of the story.
    Overall I wish the pace of the story was a little faster, and
    I received a free copy for an honest review.Beth and Beth were best friends until Ben decided to move to New York. He asks Beth to move with him and she refuses, thus setting the stage a year later for a fun yet shouldering completion. They have both developed similar products and are trying to impress an investor. They also decide to follow their chemistry and begin to pursue each other.




    The writing is fast paced, but the dialogue is witty and fun. The story does a good job of setting out history and the supporting characters are well rounded.

    I really didn’t care much for this book. The whole story kind of felt forced and I found it hard to connect or relate to the characters. The dialog also was not the greatest and sometimes something you would expect to hear in High school.
    Both characters got on my nerves sometimes.
    Most of the time they were thinking of how they want the other person, no matter what was going on even when he was just simply drinking she got all hot and bothered. It was just weird and awkward to read at times. The other times they were thinking about what they had and have lost in the past.
    It was not all bad; there were some good parts in the book that were enjoyable.
    Overall I rate it as 2 ½ ¿

    I really enjoyed the basic story but was a little frustrated with the writing. After a devastating loss Kennedy broke off the engagement to Zach five years ago. He's back now and she has to find a way to deal with him. Zach's never stopped loving Kennedy but is determined to protect himself from her. If you don't mind the back and forth (I love him - I can't love him) then I recommend this read. A very good story but the writing style was a little lacking for me.

    Review:




    A great new story, by a new author.




    This story has lots of heart, sometimes the story made me happy and other times so sad.




    **Spoilers**




    Poor Kennedy and Zach, they fell in love at a young age, got pregnant and were going to marry when they lost the baby.  In the aftermath of losing their child they lost themselves and why they loved each other.




    5 years later they are thrown back together when their good friend is diagnosed with ALS.  Now, Zach and Kennedy have not worked on the hurt feelings in five years, so for a lot of the book they keep hurting each other.  There are times when you want to smack both of them up side their heads, or at least get them some therapy but I felt invested in the characters and hoped they would work it out.




    Now, the plot is somewhat predictable, but I think story/writing totally makes up for it.  One random side note, I don't think the title is the right one for this story, it is a different vibe then the book, at least for me.   A Great first book for this Author!

    This was a great read. if, like me, sexy second-chance romances

    This was a great read.

    if, like me, sexy second-chance romances are a favourite, then this doesn't disappoint; whilst I love my lighter romances, I also love the ones that make your heart ache that little bit and Christine Glover has brought us a couple that have a heck of a history.

    Rewind 5 years and Kennedy Gibson and Zach Tanner are due to get married, but a heartbreaking unpredictable turn of events led to her pushing him away. The present day news that their mutual best friend & Kennedy's business-partner Michael, has an incurable disease brings Zach back into her life. Older, wiser, corporate and colder, Zach is there to inject the cash needed for Michael to see his dream resort built, but his and Kennedy's mutual hurt over his illness results in them telling a little white lie to encourage him to start his treatment; whilst they have the best intentions in the world, the past doesn't just disappear and neither does the guilt she harbours over their break-up.

    Their journey put me through the ringer a little bit! Not only did my my heart ache for their past, but their struggle in accepting Michael's illness did too. But amongst all this was passion, fight and broken hearts and I went from being frustrated to sighing to smiling. Whilst I admit I thought Zach seemed a little quick off the mark to reignite the passion, peel back the calculating façade he's developed and he was thoughtful gent with a good heart (and a lovely dirty way with words). And Kennedy, whilst she needs to let go of the past, it's understandable why she guards her emotions and doesn't think she is worthy of Zach. As the book progressed, she very much grew on me and the story gained some real ground; these two are soul-mates and as they say, the course of true love never runs smooth...

    "He’d brought her spring. Her number one rated season. A season for new beginnings. New life. New hope."

    ...and that for me was what made The Maverick's Red Hot Reunion a lovely addition to the Indulgence line. I hope we are given the chance to see what lies in store for Caleb & Hannah.
