Sit, Stay, Love
by Dana Mentink
Take one abrasive professional athlete, a quirky out-of-work schoolteacher, and an overweight geriatric dog, and you're ready for a lesson in love . . . Tippy style.
Pro baseball pitcher Cal Crawford is not a dog guy. When he inherits his deceased mother's elderly dog, Tippy, he's quick to call on a pet-sitting service.
Gina isn't thrilled to be a dog sitter when her aspirations lie in the classroom. Furthermore, she can't abide the unfriendly Cal, a man with all the charm of a wet towel. But with no other prospects and a deep love for all things canine, she takes the job caring for Tippy.
As Gina travels through Cal's world with Tippy in tow, she begins to see Cal in a different light. Gina longs to show Cal the God-given blessings in his life that have nothing to do with baseball or fame. When her longing blooms into attraction, Gina does her best to suppress it. But Cal is falling in love with her too. . . .
Discover the charming story of Tippy, the dog who brought a family together.
My thoughts: "There's just something about Tippy", the overweight, sluggish, key snatching, geriatric dog."
Gina is a heart-warming, funny, sincere character. She was friendly to everyone. Cal, I wasn't sure about. I didn't like him, really. He was rough, abrasive, and hated dogs. But he was willing to use Tippy for the value she gave to his career. On the other hand, he was hurt, feeling he was only valued because he's a pro-athlete. That kind of made me sad. However, he did grow on me in bits and pieces.
SIT, STAY, LOVE is a really slow read, it doesn't really grab the reader, suck them in, and make them read through in one sitting, it is a type of personal-development story for both Cal and Gina.
