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.

By reading the title Sit Stay Love, you would think it is an tutorial for training your dog. This book is a light hearted fun read. . Tippy is the name of the dog in the story and I tell you she is the star of the story. Tippy does some really funny things through the book. Every character in the story seem so real and easy to connect to. There are moments in the story that are possible tear jerkers. Sit Stay Love is a story about loss, learning to love, learning self worth and reconciliation. I enjoyed reading this book.

I gave this book 4 stars.
I was given a copy of this book by the publishers for my honest review.
