Synopsis: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.

What did I think of this book:
This was a cute funny romance book. I loved the Tippy he was the best dog a story could ask for. With all of his antics and stealing things like a crazy dog does, he had me laughing out loud. Now don't get me wrong I liked the humans in the story as well. Another thing I liked was the sports theme since Cal was a baseball player. Two of my favorite things sports and pets then throw in a little romance a good combination for a story that will keep you turning the pages quickly. At times I found myself getting upset with Cal and feeling bad for Gina but then I kind of understood Cal at the same time. His life is not a normal one. It was nice to watch as Gina and Cal became closer as the story went along. I will definately be watching for the next one in this series.
