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


Toby, Tippy, and Coco!

The Story:
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… 

Meet the author! Part of the proceeds from the book will be donated to Muttville Senior Dog Rescue!

My Thoughts:
Just in time for baseball season the story of canine Tippy and her human family will steal hearts everywhere. Sit, Stay, Love is a sweet romance where two people meet and fall in love all because of one precocious fur ball. Tippy, an elderly mutt who belonged to Cal Crawford's late mother, throws a curveball at Cal's plans for a life focused solely on his career as an ace pitcher. He hires Gina, a former teacher turned dogsitter, to take care of his four-legged "problem", in hopes that he can return to the mound with no baggage to hinder his progress after an injury. Little does he know that Tippy and God have other plans. 


Sit, Stay, Love is one of the sweetest romances I've read in a while. One of my own priorities in life is to cater to my own dogs' whims, so Tippy the spoiled pup really captured my heart. She's definitely the star of the story. Cal and Gina's story of bonding over their care of one tiny dog is certainly believable and a balm to this dog lover's soul. There's nothing better than a dog to brighten up life -- or a romance novel! 

Dana Metink has earned a fan for life with this book. I hope to see more must love dogs type romances from her very soon. Kudos to the art department, too. This cover is fabulous! Two thumbs paws up!
