Learn a Lesson in Love—Tippy Style— in Dana Mentink’s New Book (Plus a Prize Pack Giveaway)

Being really honest here . . . I LOVED THIS BOOK! I don't know what spurred me to sign up for this review, but I am so glad I did! I opened this book up a couple nights ago and couldn't put it down. It's such a fun, cute story. Cal Crawford is a troubled star baseball pitcher. He has more money and material assets than anyone needs being a multimillionaire, but he's certainly not happy. His lifestyle prevented him from being with her mother during an illness that ultimately claimed her life, and he wasn't even the one who made her funeral arrangements-his pitching coach did. After a few months he finds out he has inherited his mother's dog, Tippy, after his coach can no longer care for the 13 year old pooch. Cal isn't a dog person, unless they are working dogs, and doesn't want the dog at all. Pressed by his feelings for his mother, he decides to get a dog sitter. Gina's cousin owns a dog sitting business that caters to the rich and famous, but she's recently had surgery so Gina is sent to Cal's mansion to work with Tippy. The story that unfolds next is just full of funny (and sometimes painful) events with a couple of stress inducing moments to add to the mix.

The characters are fun, and interesting. There's Cal and Gina of course, a variety of supporting cast members in fans and team mates. There's also a bitter former college team mate turned stalker who is jealous of Cal's fame, a team mascot who is jealous of Tippy's fame, and an absentee father who resurfaces. This is a cute, fun read just in time for baseball season! 

What do you get when you add one abrasive professional athlete, a quirky out-of-work schoolteacher, and an overweight geriatric dog? A lesson in love—Tippy style—in Dana Mentink's new book, Sit, Stay, Love. 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. . . .
